Obituary of Aline Schoenroth

It is with a broken heart that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, and dear friend.  Mrs. Aline Schoenroth (nee Levac) long time resident of Gravelbourg passed away peacefully on May 28, 2024 at the age of 87 at the Regina Pasqua Hospital.

Aline, daughter of Emile and Bernadette Levac, was born on August 8, 1936, in Gravelbourg.  She grew up on the family farm three miles east of Gravelbourg.   As a young girl, she loved the farm life, riding her horse, tending the animals, and learning how to bake bread at the age of 10, taught to her by her father.  She attended Thevenet School in Gravelbourg and upon completion of post-secondary education she went on to become a nurse at the St. Joseph’s Hospital in Gravelbourg in 1956.  In 1959, Aline met Harold Schoenroth, they married in June of 1960.  Aline continued nursing until the first of her five children was born.

Aline was very active in the community; she was a member of the ladies auxiliary for over 50 years, a brownie leader for 8 years and volunteered in numerous community organizations and events for many years.

Aline babysat in her home for 15 years while raising her own children.  Once all her kids were in school, she went to work for her sister and brother-in-law (Alice and Jules Lizee) at their fabric and craft store.  In 1984, she started working at the Gravelbourg Drugstore for a duration of 16 years, still not ready to retire, she went to work for the Mayfair Motel for 15 years.  Her employment history is a testament to how hard she worked and did so always with a smile on her face, a sassy comment, and a joke to tell.

Aline was a dedicated and loving mother, always putting her children first.  We will always remember her delicious baking and homecooked meals.  Good luck trying to get a recipe, it was always, a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  When she had time to relax, she would listen and sing to country music.  She also enjoyed dancing with Harold, which they did so well together. They were always the life of any wedding, dance, or party. As most of you know, Mom was an avid sports fan, her favourites were the Montréal Canadiens and Saskatchewan Roughriders. Unfortunately, she never made it to the forum to cheer on the Habs but she did get to go with her son Kevin and see them play in Calgary. She was fortunate to see the Riders play in the Grey Cup in Regina with her son Paul.

During the past several years Mom enjoyed playing cards, coffee time, birthday celebrations and dining out with her girlfriends.  Aline will be sadly missed and her memory will be honoured by her family and friends.

She was predeceased by her husband Harold, parents Emile and Bernadette Levac, sisters Laurette and Alice, brother Leo, brothers-in-law Jules Lizee, Marcel Boire and Kevin Manning, nephews Roland Boire and Craig Levac and niece Lorraine (Levac) Crooks. 

Aline is survived by her loving children: Brian (Penny) of Kelowna, B.C., Paul (Angele) of Shaunavon, Yvonne (Barry) Thomas of Regina, Brenda (Gilles) Bouvier of Coaldale, AB., and Kevin of Calgary, AB., 11 grandchildren: Steven, Britney, Nathan (Nicole), Crystal (Curtis), Lyndon (Molly), Joshua (Rayna), Tiara (Colton), Zachary, Reanne, Matthew and Emma, 9 great grandchildren: Thea, Claire, Kade, Charlotte, Brynn, Henry, Ember, Holden and Annie, sisters: Therese Boire, Irene (Andre) Beaudoin, Diane Manning, Denise (Roger) Gensorek, brother Roland (Judy) Levac and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

A special thank you to Lousie Boire for her loving care of our mother, her aunt.  We would also like to thank the doctors and nursing staff of the Regina Pasqua Hospital who gave her the utmost care during her final days.
