Anna Maria "Marie" Hadland
September 12, 1924 - October 21, 2014
It is with great sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of their loving mother Anna Maria “Marie” Hadland, 90 years of Humboldt, on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at Humboldt District Hospital. Marie was born in Kinistino, SK to Erick and Annie (nee Haggstrom) Strandquist the seventh child of a family of 18. She obtained her grade eight education at the Haggstrom School. Following her education she worked in the area helping families. As a young lady she boarded the train to Vancouver where she was employed as a waitress for three years. Her Saskatchewan roots were strong and she returned to the Kinistino area. This is where she met the love of her life Arnold Hadland and they were wed in Kinistino on March 15, 1945. This union of marriage created a wonderful family of five children. Marie was a natural homemaker who loved all aspects of motherhood and farm life. Her children especially appreciated her warm hugs, gentle guidance and loving nature; not to mention her homemade buns and bread, lefse, söt soppa, and svenske bro, just to name a few. Carrying on the Hadland/Strandquist’s many traditions was very important to her and she thoroughly enjoyed preparing and sharing them with her family. Marie was also very well known for her gardening skills, always finding a new flower bed or vegetable garden to create. Marie made beautiful dresses for her little girls and shared many knitted and crocheted items with family and friends. In 1970 Arnold passed away suddenly and Marie continued to live on the farm with her sons. In 1974 she was introduced to her Seventh Day Adventist faith that she practiced faithfully to the end. In the mid 80’s Marie moved to Humboldt where she enjoyed being close to her family and being a part of their lives. Here she continued to enjoy sharing her baking and continued with her gardening skills. She also became the local taxi driver willing to take her friends to appointments or for a peaceful country drive. Last Christmas, at the age of 89, she still made her traditional family meal. Marie was very fashionable and always strived to look her very best. Marie’s “young at heart”, loving spirit will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her five children and their families: SHARON Hadland and family, Tracey Moldenhauer (Cory Waldner) and children Dallas and Abigail of Spruce Grove, AB and Alexa (Jesse) Rushmer of Stony Plain, AB; Andrea Briscoe (Mark Karpinka) and son Olin of Edmonton; MARCIA (Brian) Lysitza of Humboldt and family Dani (Mike) Brennan and children Katherine and William of Saskatoon and Tia (Harvey) Nienaber and children Evan and Jordan of Humboldt; ALLAN (Iona) Hadland of Star City and family Jackie (Les) Haroldson and son Leslie of Warman and Kallom (Morgan) Hadland and children Riley and Ashlyn of Kindersley; DAVID (Karen) Hadland of Muenster and his family Angela (Brad) Gampe and children Bradley, Cody, Austin and Josh, Aaron (Michelle) Hadland and children Dylan and Hayley, and Shawna (Cory) Uliski and children Alannah and Sydney all of Cudworth; and Karen’s children Tracy of Humboldt, Chrissy of Yorkton and Jeremy of Warmen and their families; and RORY (Loretta) Hadland of Meacham and family Amy Busby and sons Dylan and Coltyn, Tylea, Arnie, and Hannah Hadland, all of Weldon; three sisters and one brother: Ellen Jones of Surrey, BC, Eileen (Bill) White of Bellevue, AB, Roy Strandquist of Innisfree, AB and Ruth (Al) White of Bellevue, AB; sisters and brothers-in-law Freda (Norval) Hungerford of Eston, Margaret Strandquist of Love, George Nelson of Kinistino, Irene Strandquist and Vivian Strandquist both of Blairmore, AB and by numerous nieces and nephews.

December 29, 1915 - October 17, 2014
The Blanch family regretfully announces the death of their mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great great grandmother Cecilia Blanch (nee Saretsky), 98 years of St. Mary’s Villa, Humboldt on Friday, October 17, 2014. Cecilia was born in the Burr district to Alex and Anna (nee Gursky) Saretsky on December 29, 1915, a date she shares with her mother Anna and her daughter Karen. She married Leo Blanch on October 25, 1938 and lived in Muenster for a few years, before moving to a farm south west of the town, where she and Leo raised their nine children. She experienced a life of joy and hardship common to that time, household responsibilities, including everything from weekly bread baking, sewing, washing clothes and ironing for hours, seasoning the sausage in fall from the game taken by Leo and certain sons, and making the best of the many scarcities of the early years were her main occupations. In addition to her devotion as a mother, she was also devoted to her little country church, St. Gertrude and the women’s group, which nourished her faith. Retiring to Muenster in 1974, she enjoyed many good years, actively involved in family births, wedding and sporting activities. She would surprise everyone at times by being the last dancer on the floor at family wedding dances, or be in the center of the circle as grandchildren sang and danced around her to the song “Cecilia”. Age and its consequences eventually stole her strength and spirit, and the last few years she looked forward to her death and the promise of her faith. Her life can be properly summarized by the titles of 3 of her favourite songs. It was The Church in the Wildwood that inspired her, Whispering Hope…All Through the Night…taking her to her final place of rest. Cecilia will be lovingly remembered by her seven children and 26 grandchildren: MURRAY (Stefanie) Blanch of Saskatoon and family, Kelly (Darlene) Blanch, Debbie (Norm) Joanis, and Michelle (David) Climenhaga; ANNE (Joe) Menz of Humboldt and family, Lorie Menz (Glenn Wildeman), Donna (Rob) Muench, Sandy (Ken) Angelstad, and Darryl (Niamh) Menz; Bernadette’s family, Brent (Sherri) Danchilla, Elana (Trevor) Balabuk, and Lisa (James) Jakubiec; KAREN (Allan) Korte of Saskatoon and family, Jason Korte, Devin (Jen) Korte, and Curt (Lianne) Korte; MARY (Roger) Hofmann of Muenster and family, Carey (Dean) Terichow, Chad (Tara) Hofmann, Jocelyn Hofmann, and Justin (Sarah) Hofmann; PATRICK (Sharon) Blanch of Muenster and family, Brigette (Kurt) Hofmann, Felicia (Vic) Bishara and Derek (Ashley) Blanch; GEORGE (Dawn) Blanch of Humboldt and family, Naomi (Joe) Monsoor, Jessica Blanch and Kelsey Blanch; and COLLEEN (Tom) Gray of Muenster and family, Jeff (Kendra) Gray, Michael (Paul) Gray, and Nathan (Tanis) Gray; daughter in-law, Margaret Blanch of Regina; 43 great grandchildren; one great great granddaughter; two sisters and one brother: Anne Smith, Joan Pritchard, and Felix (Lorraine) Saretsky; sisters-in-law, Barb Saretsky, Veronica Saretsky and Yvonne Saretsky; brother-in-law, Maurice Vinet; and numerous nieces and nephews.
