Wilfred John Witzaney
It is with sadness that the family of Wilfred John Witzaney announces his sudden death on Sunday, June 29, 2014 at the age of 95 years. Wilf was born on December 2, 1918 in the Denzil district, where he spent his early life. After serving in the army during World War II, he and his twin brother Raymond returned home and farmed together for many years near Unity, Saskatchewan. In 1980, Wilf retired from farming and moved into Unity for a while; finally, settling in Saskatoon for the remainder of his life. He enjoyed gardening and loved old time music, which frequently played from his radio. When Wilf was no longer able to live on his own, he moved into Keedwell Assisted Living Centre. The family deeply appreciates the excellent care he received there over the past two years. Wilf is predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Margaret Witzaney; twin brother Raymond; brother Ted; sisters: Catherine Witzaney, Marjorie Perenack, and Dora Boschman; brothers-in-law: Joseph Cseh, Joe Boschman, Alex Richelhoff, and Bob Teszner. Mourning his loss are siblings: Marie Teszner, Joe (Florence) Witzaney, and Agnes Richelhoff; sisters-in-law: Barbara Witzaney, and Mary Witzaney; and numerous nephews and nieces. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, July 3, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. from Holy Spirit Roman Catholic Church (114 Kingsmere Pl), with Rev. Father Geoffrey Young as celebrant. The Cremation Rite of Committal will follow at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens. Arrangements in care of David Polzen - MOURNING GLORY FUNERAL SERVICES (306-978-5200) www.mourningglory.ca
