Douglas Schiefer 1942 2020

It is with deep sadness and much love
that we announce the passing of Douglas
Schiefer, age 78, after a long and courageous battle
with cancer. We take comfort in the fact that his wife of 57
years and his loving family were at his bedside. Born May
19, 1942 in Springhill, he was predeceased by his parents, Florian and
Alberta (Pepperdine), his sister, Elizabeth (Doug) Carter, and a
brother in infancy.
He is survived by his wife, Sharon
(Sherrif); sons Douglas (Jean), Daniel (Gloria), and his daughter
Shelley. “Poppy” will be sadly missed by his
grandchildren Faith (Justin), Nathan, Bobby (Jessica), James and
Dryden. He is survived by his brother Lorne and many nieces
and nephews.
Doug was the owner of Schiefer’s Garage
for over 60 years, as well as a general contractor and a school bus
owner. He was hard working, active, and had a passion for
the outdoors shown by his gardening, camping and fishing
trips. He also had an artistic flair which was reflected in
his paintings, carvings and wood working. Anyone who knew
Doug would be impressed by his knowledge of the community and how he
loved to tell a good story.
Cremation has taken place under the
supervision of A.H. Brown Funeral
