Obituary of Bernhard Sadowski
Bernhard Sadowski went to be with the Lord on April 10, 2019 at age 88 after a struggle with cancer. Bernhard was predeceased by his wife Margaret (2000), by his parents John (1964) and Wilhelmine (1987), sister-in-law Lori (1998), brother Walter (2003), brother-in-law Fred Schneider (2007), daughter-in-law Heather (2015), and sister Erika (2017). Bernhard is survived by his wife Elizabeth (and family), brother Albert, his children Daniel, Wayne (Debbie), Ivan (Anna), Calvin (Ida), Lynden (Cheryl) and Loreena (Paul). He was very proud of his grandchildren Hannah (Cody), Monica (Curtis), Rebecca, Alaina, Jason (Kaila), Michael (Karlee), Eric, Andrea, Ethan and Abigail as well as great-grandson Bennett. He will be missed by his many nieces and nephews. Bernhard was raised on his parent’s homestead south of Secretan, SK. After completing Grade 10 at Thistledown school, he spent several years on the railroad as a telegraph operator. He then bought land in the Secretan area in 1957. He spent the next 59 years ranching and farming. In 2003, he married Elizabeth Wiebe (Dyck) and they spent many happy hours together playing music for seniors, family, and at the church in Mortlach. In 2015, Bernhard sold the farm and moved to Moose Jaw where he resided with Elizabeth until the time of his passing. Outside of farming, he had many interests including reading and music. He greatly loved playing the violin and no visit would be complete without opening up the hymn book and playing a number of songs with anyone present who could play a musical instrument. He also loved to travel and made several trips to Germany to see relatives, and to Poland where he visited the birthplaces of both his parents. Bernhard also loved to write poetry – “if it doesn’t rhyme it isn’t a poem”. He completed the third volume of his memoires earlier this year. The Funeral Service will be held at Parkview Funeral Chapel, 474 Hochelaga St W, Moose Jaw on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan, 200-4545 Parliament Ave, Regina, SK, S4W 0G3. In living memory of Bernhard a memorial tree planting will be made by Jones-Parkview Funeral Services.
