Obituary of Thelma Waldner
WALDNER, Thelma Bernice
Thelma, late of Regina, SK, passed away with her family by her side on Monday, September 17, 2018 at the age of 83 years. She was predeceased by her husband Lyle Waldner; parents, Ole Seterengen and Irene (Ray) McKenzie; brothers, Neal and Wayne Seterengen; and brother-in-law Bert Wolfe. Thelma is lovingly remembered by her daughter Rosemary (Lloyd) Geiss, and their children, Lindsay and Jarred. She is also remembered by her devoted son David (Darlene Johnson) and his children, Landon (Maria), Justin, and Callie (Jason) Godson (Chloe and Lexon) and Darlene’s children, Chantel (Sean) and Corey and children. Also left to mourn her passing are Thelma’s siblings, Victoria Campagna (Bert Wolfe), Oliver (Arlynn), Lorrie (Laurel), Floyd, Blaine, Douglas (Val), Darlene (Mark) Griffis, and Garry. Thelma also had many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends, who were dear to her. Thelma was born in Saskatchewan and remained a Prairie girl all her life. She married Lyle Waldner in 1955 and they moved to Estevan, where they raised their family. In 1980, Lyle retired and they moved to their farm near Porcupine Plain, SK. In 2003, they moved back to Estevan, where they enjoyed being closer to their children and grandchildren. In 2015, after Lyle’s passing, Thelma then moved to Regina. Thelma was a beautiful soul, who loved being with her Saskatchewan family and friends, travelling to be with her B.C. family and friends, as well as her Manitoba family. She was an animal lover and had many pets over the years, which gave her plenty of enjoyment. To honour Thelma, kind deeds to people and animals are greatly appreciated by the family. We would like to thank Dr. Chadive, Dr. Muftah, the Pasqua Hospital Staff in emergency and unit 3A, and the EMT’s for all the care and compassion Thelma received. The family also appreciates the professionalism of Speers Funeral Chapel and Halls Funeral Chapel. At Thelma’s request, there will be a private family service and interment in Estevan. Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Thelma
