Daniel Schindel

August 25, 1923 ~ April 22, 2017 (age 93)

Mr. Daniel Schindel, 93 years of Jansen, was called home to be with his Lord and Saviour on April 22, 2017 from the Central Parkland Lodge in Lanigan, Saskatchewan. Daniel was born August 25, 1923 to Wilhelm and Martha (nee Bloch) Schindel. Daniel was born in Poland, and he moved to Canada when he was five years old on July 19, 1928. Dan grew up on the farm; he frequently stayed home from school to help with chores as his mother was in the field. On February 8, 1946 he married Helen Wildeman, they were blessed with three children. Together they worked side by side on the farm making a loving and wholesome life for their children. The family was saddened when Helen passed away in 1984. In 1986 he married Josephine Mierke. In 2016 Josephine passed away. Dan loved to farm, when he was young he did odd jobs for people including greasing threshing machines. Dan was very skilled and did a lot of welding in his shop, making ornamental step-railings. He made many tarp controls for grain trucks, tow-hitches, installed hydraulics on cultivators and made his own V-Type snowplough. Dan also enjoyed gardening.  When his health started to fail he was determined to continue his gardening even if it meant crawling on his knees to plant potatoes. Dan was very proud and supportive of all his grandchildren. Due to a stroke on December 22, 2014 he could no longer live independently and moved to Central Parkland Lodge in Lanigan where he lived until present. Dan will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his three children, two step-children, 14 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren: Sharon Columpsi and family Curtis (Paula) Columpsi and children Nathen, Quintin and Tristan all of Calgary, AB; Aimee (Dan) Kehler of Spruce Grove, AB and children Jaelyn, Wesley and Chelsea and Sofia (Adam) Seward of Cape Breton, NS and children Julia and Aaron; Larry (Aurilda) Schindel of Jansen and family, Stuart (Hyejin) Schindel of Saskatoon and Michelle (Sheldon) Salaba of Dundas, ON and children Jack and Kate; Dennis (Roxanne) Schindel of Jansen and family, Jordan (Megan) Schindel of Saskatoon, Landon (Jennelle) Schindel and son Grayson; and Kelli Schindel (Tanner Sobkowicz) all of Lanigan; step children: Wendy Jo (Brent) Brewer of Shell Lake and family Kaitlyn, Kennadi and Kyle; and Warren (Carol) Mierke of Warman and children Braydon-Lee, Nicolas and Emily; brothers and sister: Fred (Marlene) Schindel, Mary Pichler both of Saskatoon and Henry (Alma) Schindel of Winnipeg; and sister-in-law Verna Rosin of Regina.
