Alpha Schmirler Obituary

Mrs. Alpha Schmirler passed away on January 31, 2024 at the age of 90 years.  Alpha was born April 19, 1933 to parents Art and Isabella “Mildred” Fonda.  As an infant she got the nickname “Bubbles” and for most of her life she was always known as “Bubbles” or “Bub”.  She was born at Rabbit Lake and raised on the farm at Bournemouth, Saskatchewan.

She worked at the Medstead Creamery before she married George Schmirler in 1953.  They owned the John Deere Dealership in Medstead for a few years, then farmed till retirement.

Alpha took pride, and it gave her joy to tend to her garden and yard.  She enjoyed canning fruit, meat and vegetables.  She also enjoyed camping and fishing with family and friends.   Her religious faith was also a very important part of her life.

Family meant everything to her, and she loved us all.   She is survived by her children: Albert “Abe” (Caren) Schmirler, Judy (Grant) Hipkiss, Gerald (Carol) Schmirler; grandchildren: Gregory (Jill) Schmirler, Nicole (Matthew) Ryall, Shawn (Tina) Hipkiss, Cara (James) Dzialo; great-grandchildren: Tyson and Aubrey Schmirler, Drey and Daxon Ryall, Connor and Kaiden Hipkiss, Grayson Dzialo.

She was predeceased by her husband, George Schmirler; parents: Art and Mildred Fonda; brothers: Allan (Beatrice) Fonda, Everette (Shirley) Fonda and Louie (Joyce) Fonda.

A Graveside Service will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers memorial donations in memory of Mrs. Alpha Schmirler can be directed to the Villa Pascal 1301 113th St North Battleford, SK S9A 3K1.
