Connie Silzer
Constance Geraldine Silzer of Swift Current, SK, and formerly Glen Bain and Gravelbourg, passed away on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, at the age of 69. Connie was born on July 24, 1947, to Roy and Lydia Myers in Gravelbourg. She was raised on the family farm and attended school in Bateman and Gravelbourg. After graduation she moved to Regina and started working at Sears. On April 11, 1966, she married Wilmer Silzer and they continued to reside in Regina. On November 29, 1968, their son Kevin was born, and four years later on April 10, 1972, their son Jason was born. In 1976, Wilmer and Connie began a new adventure together when they moved to the family homestead near Glen Bain and began farming. They both taught at the Glen Bain School and Connie was the Kindergarten teacher for 21 years, retiring in 1997. Connie found that retirement wasn't for her, and she started working at the Co-op in Gravelbourg to keep busy. Connie and Wilmer sold the family farm in 2000 and moved to Gravelbourg. Shortly after their move to town Wilmer became ill and passed away in 2001. Connie continued working at the Co-op, where she gained many new friends, retiring in 2007. She then purchased a condo in Swift Current and moved to the "big city." She began working at the Best Western shortly after moving, until her final retirement in 2013. Connie had a friendly and outgoing personality. She had a special place in her heart for her four grandchildren, and liked to follow their sports and hobbies. She was their loudest cheerleader, the first one to volunteer on a community committee, the smiling face at the food booth or bar at a Glen Bain sports day, the first one to offer help, and the last one to leave after the clean up. Connie was very talented and loved to write poetry, play the organ, and write songs. She wrote the 90th and 100th anniversary poems for St. Boswells Trinity Lutheran Church, and was the mastermind behind the popular Glen Bain Christmas concerts. Connie loved her family and was very proud of her sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren, and was always supportive in all they achieved.
Connie is survived by her loving family, son Kevin (Jackie) Silzer and their children Shelby and Lane of Martensville, SK; son Jason (Sandi) Silzer and their children Rylan and Brenna of Swift Current, SK; brother Mel Myers of Gainsborough, SK; brother-in-law Leverne (Fay) Silzer of Swift Current, SK; sister-in-law Rosalie (Dan) Bender of Loreburn, SK; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Predeceased by her husband Wilmer Silzer; parents Roy and Lydia Myers; father and mother-in-law John and Millie Silzer.
Funeral Service was held on Saturday, January 7, 2017, at 11:00 a.m., at Walker Place, Swift Current, SK, with Sam Hawkins officiant. David Punga shared memories of Connie's years working at the Co-op in Gravelbourg. Words of remembrance by Judy Levac, Gloria Grill, Lisa Kornfeld, Sherri Silzer, and Rosalie Bender.
