Knoblauch, (Baade) Mary Martha passed away peacefully surrounded by family at the Long Lake Integrated Facility, Imperial, Sk on June 9, 2021 at the age of 105. She was born in Regina on June 3, 1916 and raised on the family farm at Imperial. She was predeceased by her husband Ben and four sisters and three brothers. She is survived by her children Sharon, James (Nadine), Jeanine and Robert (Holly)
10 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren, 3 great great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mary taught school for six years during the Depression. After marrying she lived on the family farm at Imperial. As a busy farm wife and mother, Mary was always at her best as a friend and neighbour, active in the community and her church. Mary and Ben enjoyed curling, square dancing and other local activities. After working hard on their farm, they were able to retire in 1981 in the town of Imperial.Then she was able to spend a lot of time with her favourite activity….playing bridge. She was an excellent bridge player.
Education and music were important to her and she instilled her intelligence in her family. She played the piano and although only taking a few lessons, could play a lovely old time waltz “by ear”. She loved to travel and visited many places…Europe, Japan, Australia, Mexico, Oklahoma, Quebec to name a few.
Mary lived in her own home in Imperial until the age of 95. She then moved to Jubilee Court in Watrous where she baked bread until the age of 101. She then moved to the Long Lake Integrated facility in 2017. A very special thank you to all the caregivers and staff there for the excellent care she received.
Mary will be lovingly remembered for her love of family, her keen memory and her “take it as it comes” attitude toward life. She will truly be remembered by all who loved and knew her.
A Private Family Service will take place at St. Georges Anglican Church, Imperial, SK on Sunday, June 20th, 2021. Interment will take place in Lake City Cemetery.
