It is with great love and fond memories that the family announces the peaceful passing of Emma Elizabeth Herman (Engel) on Friday, July 10, 2020 at the Lanigan Hospital. She was 101 years of age.

Emma was born December 2nd, 1918 to Michael Engel and Mary Katherine (nee Schwartz). She was baptized by Pastor Schievie and confirmed by Pastor Senft. Emma liked to help her mother at home. She attended Rhein school until grade eight. On October 20th, 1940 she married Victor Herman. They farmed until 1952, then moved to Rhein where Victor worked for his father-in-law in the elevator, taking over as manager in 1955. Emma and Victor had three daughters Gloria, Carol, and Linda; and two sons that died in infancy. Emma’s love was her family and her Church. Victor passed away on February 17, 1994. Emma remained in her home until May 1996 when she married Alex Schwab, who then passed away in 2000. In 2000 she moved to Queen Elizabeth and then in 2016 to care homes in Melville, Theodore and Lanigan.

Emma is lovingly remembered by her children Gloria (Gerald) Stumph of Winnipeg; Carol (Wally) Hersak of Regina, and Linda (Rodney) Liebrecht of Jansen; grandchildren Brian (Roxy) Stumph and daughter Nicole; Ronda (Glenn) Henley and daughter Kaitlin; Lynn (Duncan) McLeod and sons Gordon and Stuart; Laurie (Brian) Wallace and daughter Amanda; Angel (Marlin) Kulchyski and children Carson, Montana and Ryan; Amber (Eldon) Hoffman and daughters Kennedy and River. Emma is survived by brothers Roland Engel and George (Betty) Engel; sister Violet (Larry) Lakey, and sister-in-law Joyce Engel, Alex’s daughter Norma (Garry) McCelland and family along with many nieces and nephews.

Emma was predeceased by her parents, husband Victor, two sons William and Donald, husband Alex Schwab, grandson Kendall Liebrecht, siblings Adam (Annie) Engel, Edward (Vera) Engel, Alfphonse (Stella) Engel, Lillian (Fred) Herman, Irene Engel, Gordon Engel, Agnes Engel, and sister-in-law Doris Engel.
The family would like to thank the staff and auxiliary at the Lanigan Hospital for their amazing care, along with Pastor Glenn Shore and Pastor Karen Stepko for all of their support.

The Funeral Service was held on July 14, 2020 from Christ Lutheran Church in Rhein, SK with Rev. Karen Stepko officiating. The music was played by Angel Liebrecht. Amber Hoffman spoke on behalf of the family sharing Words of Remembrance. The burial took place in the Christ Lutheran Church Cemetery with Laurie Wallace, Brian Wallace, Marlin Kulchyski, Carson Kulchyski, Eldon Hoffman and Amber Hoffman serving as pallbears. Memorial donations may be made to Christ Lutheran Church, Rhein (General Fund) or to the Lanigan Hospital Auxiliary as gifts of remembrance.

So many wonderful memories of Aunt Emma. I hope yours will comfort you and bring more smiles than tears. Her memory always amazed mom and I, as well as how soft her skin was. We always took the opportunity to rub her arm! Thankful we could watch her service and say goodbye. I will always think of her with love. Please take care.
