Obituary of Luella Chisholm

Luella Pauline Chisholm (Rieder) of Woodrow, SK passed away peacefully on December 5, 2020 at the age of 98 at the Lafleche Health Centre, Lafleche, SK. She was predeceased by her husband Aubrey in 1998, her parents Con and Adoline Rieder, four brothers, and two sisters.

Luella is survived by her children Marillyn (Bob) Mourre, Joanna Chisholm, Arlene Romanow and Jerry Chisholm. She was proud of her grandchildren Chris, Michael, Nicole, Karen (Ryan), Candace (James) and Jennifer. Her great-grandchildren Luke, Rachel, Jake, Madelyn, Logan, Ben and Abigail brought her great joy. Luella is also survived by one sister Aileen Bond of Lafleche and several nieces and nephews.

Luella was born on the family farm near Mankota, SK on July 13, 1922. She completed grade 12 and took a bookkeeping course in Assiniboia, SK. She was employed at the Lafleche Co-op as a bookkeeper and a clerk for several years.

Luella married Aubrey Chisholm on November 1, 1946 and moved to their farm south of Woodrow where she resided until December 2017.

Luella had a quiet voice with a strong heart and always a ready smile. Our Mother received great enjoyment in her flowers, gardening, baking, and cooking. She was delighted in having company, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren to play games. Reading, jigsaw puzzles and word searches were also a pastime for her.

The family wishes to sincerely thank the nurses and staff of the Gravelbourg Long Term Care Home and the Lafleche and District Health Centre.

Donations in memory of Luella may be directed to the Lafleche & District Health Fund Inc., Box 250 Lafleche, SK S0H 2K0.

A Private Family Service will be held in the Woodrow Municipal Cemetery at a later date.
