Edith Marlene Gehl
1921 -2013
With great sadness we announce the passing of Edith Gehl on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at the age of 91 years. Edie passed away peacefully with her family by her side at a personal care home in Regina. She was predeceased by her husband Pete Gehl in 2001. Edie is lovingly remembered by her children: Peter, David (Roberta), Robert (Bernadette) and William (Joanne); grandchildren: Ryan, Angela, Richard, Matthew, John, Adrienne and Ian and great grandchildren: Zachary, Lyndon, Grace, Olivia, Ethan and Joel.
Edith was born on October 12, 1921 in Vanguard, SK to Peter and Stella Anderson, the fifth of eight children. Edie grew up on the Anderson family farm near Glenbain where she developed a sense of community and family, work ethic and social consciousness. She excelled at school and went on to become a teacher at the age of eighteen. Edie taught at one-room country schools in southern Saskatchewan for more than a decade.
Edie married a farmer, Pete Gehl, in 1951 and moved to the Gehl farm at Bethune. Pete, Edie and their four boys moved to a farm at Brora, Saskatchewan in 1964 where they remained until retiring to a home in Regina in 1984.
Edie was a progressive prairie woman. She was a devoted wife, loving mother and kind friend. She was active in the Regina Peace Council, the National Farmers Union and other progressive movements. She enjoyed many hobbies, socializing and especially, time with her family. For many years International Children’s Day picnics, Friday night cards and New Year’s Eve parties were anticipated events at the Gehl farm.
Edie was beloved by her family and friends and will live long in their memories. A memorial service for her will be held in Regina at a later date.
Donations in her memory may be made to the Regina Peace Council, 46 Williston Drive, Regina, SK S4X 1C4.
The family wishes to express its sincere gratitude to operator Sandra Donais and the staff of 2 Hearts Personal Care Home for their compassion and excellent care of Edie during her prolonged struggle with dementia.
