Bernard Studer age 87 passed away peacefully Monday September 2, 2019 in Nipawin with his family at his side.
Bernard was born May 20, 1932 in Eastend, SK; he was a brother to four older sisters.
He moved to the White Fox area in 1940 and to the Blue Spruce District in 1944. Bernard married Evelyn (Moonie) on August 12, 1960 and they bought a homestead half a mile North of his parents farm.
Bernard worked on the farm with his dad and then in the bush for the winters. He spent one winter in Spences Bridge, BC on the railway and two winters in Prince George, BC working at the saw mill.
In August of 1971 their son Kelly was born, followed by daughter Karla in February 1974 and daughter Lana in 1977.
Bernard bought a grain truck in 1978 and for the next 19 years custom grain hauled and farmed. He then retired and rented out the land. Wood carving, yard work and Old Tyme dancing became his life.
Bernard and Evelyn moved from the farm to Nipawin in September 2015 due to health. They enjoyed visiting with friends at afternoon coffee at Dairy Queen, putting together jig saw puzzles and of course dancing.
Bernard was predeceased by his parents Frank and Winnifred; sisters Frances, Irene, Elvina and Cecelia; brothers-in-law Wilfred Nelson, Don Doyle and Art Felbel; father and mother–in-law Alex and Emily Moonie; brothers-in-law Mervin, Malcolm, Floyd, Glenn, Donald, Edgar, Bill, Dave, Leonard and sister-in-law Gladys.
He is survived by his loving wife Evelyn; children Kelly(Melissa) Chloe, Gillian, Karla (Don) Terence (Jessie, Owen), Ashton (Sheldon), Lana(Kelvin) Kali, Tyson; son-in-law Wayne; sisters-in-law Hazel (Skip), Arma, Lorraine (Al), Susan and brother-in-law Garland (Lois).
