ROSALIND “LINDA” WITTMAN
Linda, late of Regina, SK, passed away on Sunday, December 18, 2016. She was predeceased by parents, Tillie Getz and Roy Mastel; step-father Stanley Getz; daughter Jocelyn Klein; and brother Larry Getz. Linda is survived by spouse Ben Wittman; daughters, Susan (Brad) Fayant, Michelle (Wayne) Diakow and Lorelei Wittman; son-in-law Ron Klein; grandchildren, Jody (Marcie) Klein, Robert (Mya) Golding, Carter Klein, Kyle (fiancée Kassidy Stevenson), Kendra and Kristen Diakow, and Kurtis and Caleigh Fayant; great-grandchildren, Rory and Charlie Klein, and Olive Golding; sisters, Leona (Ken) Georgettes, Doris (John) Potetz, and Alice (Ron) Lesnowski; sister-in-law Dolly Getz; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Linda was born October 27, 1932 on a farm near Vibank. Her childhood years were spent on the farm and school at Vibank. Linda moved to Regina at an early age and began work at Sears. At 16, Linda laid eyes on Ben Wittman and was smitten immediately. At 19, she married Ben on September 13, 1952 and began a lifetime well lived and shared. Ben and Linda spent their early life together, living in small communities where Ben taught school, moving to Briercrest where they welcomed their first child Jocelyn and then to Brownlee where the family expanded with the birth of Susan. In 1963, the family moved to Moose Jaw, where they would spend the next 32 years, welcoming the birth of two more daughters, Michelle and Lorelei. Linda's primary focus was her family, yet she still made time to be an active life-long CWL member, volunteer for many charities, an avid bowler (participating in the Saskatchewan Senior Games), a lover of music, singing in church, and enjoyed nothing more than a good polka or waltz. After her children were grown, Linda was never one to sit idle, she returned to the work force, once again with Sears. In 1995, Linda and Ben moved to Regina. They travelled throughout Canada, US, Italy, and a mother/daughter trip to Germany and Austria. Linda was quick to laugh and to share her sweet smile. She was an unparalleled cook and baker. Her house was meticulous, with gardens magnificent. Linda had a wonderful sense of humour and a competitive streak, whether it was beating the family at Trivial Pursuit, playing Super Mario with grandchildren or beating the odds at the casino. The most important thing to Linda was her family. She did anything and everything for them; nursing Ben through multiple health crises, and supporting her family through physical and emotional travails. Linda revelled in their successes and anguished at their hardships. She remains the driving force for her family, influencing as they strive to live a life as full and giving as hers. Even as Linda endured ill health these last years, her spirits lifted at the sight of Ben, a visit or phone call from her daughters, and at the tales of the adventures of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The family wishes to thank Dr. Jennifer Kuzmicz for the extraordinary care she gave Linda. A special thank-you to Pat at Wascana Rehab, a very special nurse who helped Linda through a most difficult loss, who brought many smiles and cherry tomatoes, and made Linda feel safe and secure in her care. Funeral Mass will take place at Holy Child Roman Catholic Parish, 2636 7th Avenue East, Regina, SK on Thursday, December 22, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Private family interment to take place at Regina Memorial Gardens.
