REIMER, Adeline Vivian passed away peacefully and suddenly on Friday, June 29, 2012 at the Cypress Regional Hospital in Swift Current, following a recent decline in her health. Adeline Vivian Mikulcik was born January 18, 1929, on her grandparents' farm in Glenside, Saskatchewan. Upon her completion of high school, Adeline took further training at Moose Jaw Normal School to become a teacher. It was during her very early days of teaching that she met Abe Reimer. The romance soon turned serious and they were wed in Glenside, Saskatchewan on June 2, 1949. They settled on a farm west of Main Centre where they lived for approximately 8 years. It was here that they welcomed daughter, Eunice Elaine in 1950, son, Lawrence Lloyd in 1953, and son, Barry Brian in 1957. Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Herbert. With the massage clinic right in their home, Adeline became quite involved in assisting Abe in his business. The family expanded in 1965, with the birth of daughter, Melodie Mae. Abe and Adeline put in many long hours together commuting between the two clinics in Herbert and Swift Current. Once they moved to Swift Current in 2001, Abe hired a full time receptionist and Adeline could retire from her job as official secretary. However, they both continued to enjoy the days when Adeline had to fill in for the main receptionist. Adeline had many interests including crocheting, reading and gardening. She also had a special talent for cooking and baking. All of her children and grandchildren knew that she would have their favourite cookies, perogies, cinnamon buns or homemade noodles ready for their visit. In her later years, she enjoyed playing the mandolin in the church gospel band. In all of these things it was important to her to do her very best and never let anyone down. Another great joy for Adeline was her telephone calls. In addition to keeping in touch with her family she had many phone friends, which provided her with entertainment and companionship. One of Adeline’s most endearing qualities was the love she had and showed toward every person she met. Everyone was made to feel like they were her best friend. She lived her life by example. There was not a person she did not like. You could not help but love her back. Adeline Reimer was predeceased by her mother, Tena; her father, Louis; mother-in -law, Tina; father-in-law, John; son-in-law, Dr. Walter Koehler; and most recently the love of her life, her husband of 60 years, Abe, in 2009.
