Peter is also survived by many special friends.
Peter was born on December 20, 1951 to Ben and Rose Dielschneider. He was the youngest of 6 children. He worked on the family dairy farm in Katherinthal Colony, Kronau, SK. Peter met his loving wife Judy in 1969, they married on April 29, 1972 and they started their family with their first born Nichole who was born in January of 1973, Jason came along a couple years later in July 1975, and Jodi just made December of 1976 being born on December 31. Peter started working at Sears in 1976 and they purchased their acreage across the road from the family farm. In around 1980 he switched gears and began working for Federated Coop in Regina, SK and moved their family from the acreage into Kronau. Peter and Judy moved the family to Regina in 1988 so they could be closer to the activities involving the kids and family. He worked at Federated Coop until it closed in 1993 which offered him the opportunity to fulfill his dreams of opening a flower shop. The Flower Hut was a successful business that he built from the ground up and he became Regina’s first award-winning floral designer. He later sold the business to his niece Louanne who continues the legacy.
He has had many hobbies throughout the years and been involved in many organizations from showing horses to working with the Horticulture Society, etc. Some of the most important organizations that he had been involved with were the Knights of Columbus in which he volunteered many years in many positions including Grand Knight, the Austrian Edelweiss Dancers which was always his pride because it was something he did with his family and made many lifelong friends and memories, and most recently the Regina Whittlers and Wood Carvers.
In 1996 his biggest dream of becoming a Papa came true when we welcomed his first grandchild into the world and five more between 1999 and 2009. One of Peter’s greatest joys was his grandkids and he was never too proud to let the world know.
Peter was one of the most artistic people you could ever meet. He could pick up a random piece of wood and see something in it, and he could carve it to become his vision. He could do the same with flowers by just picking up random flowers and create beautiful works of art. Peter also had quite the eye for decorating and could envision things so perfectly. Their house, yard and camp sight were true testaments of that.
Peter had a love like none other for the Christmas season, he loved teaching his centerpiece classes for all the ladies, he loved being Santa for all the kids and he loved to make his house beautiful and welcoming for the holidays. It seems so ironic that this would be the time that he would choose to leave us.
Peter had a love for travel and more recently camping. They loved to travel with their best friends Glen and Deb Hubenig and always had stories to share. This all started the first year we moved to Regina and took our first family trip together with the Hubenigs (bologna sandwiches and all). We started out for Kimberley, B.C. and ended up in Victoria, B.C., 9 of us in a large panel van named Herman and the adventures just kept going from there. When Dad got an idea in his head it was go big or go home. A few years ago he decided he wanted to do the camping thing, which started with a small Boler camper trailer and ended up with a 26 ft. fifth wheel camper trailer on a camp lot in Craven World which he so badly missed this year.
Peter’s family would like to thank his caregivers during his 1-year battle with cancer, the Allan Blair Cancer Center, Unit 3B Pasqua Hospital, ICU Pasqua Hospital, Transplant Unit RUH and most of all Dr. Elemary, Nurse Mary Medoza and Dr. Seleem and all the other nurses that took such great care of him.
We would also like to thank his special friends Dennis Bennet and Sue Linnen for their support during their cancer journeys together and hope they continue to fight as Dad is still supporting them through their journey. Most of all we would like to thank Dad’s Donor who, in a strange and uncertain time of COVID-19, proceeded with the transplant to do all they could to help him. A complete stranger was willing to help him with anything that could help him get better, we will be forever grateful. Last, but most certainly not least, we would like to thank all our friends and family who supported and prayed for Dad during this one-year battle. Dad fought for himself, for us, and every one of you. He just got to a point where he could not fight anymore and his body was tired. He will be missed and loved by all.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please donate to Victoria’s Quilts Canada www.victoriasquiltscanada.com/ or the Leukemia and Luymphoma Society of Canada www.llscanada.org/
