Ronald D Schott
Passed on April 17, 2023
March 25, 1923 – April 17, 2023 “100 years” To remember me, I leave behind my best friends Eleanor and Kim who helped keep me active, occupied and took me to many appointments in my declining years. They are to be blessed.
Survived by my sons Wade (Carol), Lee and Rick. Grandson Tyson was a big part of my life while he was growing up in his teen years. Also many grandchildren, great – grandchildren and great- great – grandchildren.
Predeceased by my wife Ruby (2007), son Rae, parents Martin and Maggie Schott, sisters Velma, Hazel and brother Jack.
I was born and raised in Warren, Manitoba and later moved to the farm. I joined the Air Forces where I spent 4 ½ years. After which I worked for grocery companies Geo. McLean Co. and Codville Co. until retiring in 1988. Ruby and I married in 1945 and moved to Woodlands in 1946. Ruby and I travelled many times to Mexico and Hawaii. Later in life we moved to Stonewall Lions Manor then to Stonewood Place, closer to medical care for Ruby who suffered many strokes. I cared for Ruby for 20 years before her passing. After Ruby’s passing, I spent many hours volunteering and visiting at Rosewood Lodge. Also Saturday morning at the McQueen farm for chores and coffee, and many holiday suppers.
Since grade 5, I dreamed of seeing the Black Forest in Germany. With Eleanor by my side, I saw the forest and many parts of Germany. Memories of a life time. Besides many short trips in Canada, we went rafting on the Winnipeg River. I could’nt believe the peace and quiet beauty of the float. I was supposedly the oldest (94) to raft the river.
I would like to thank the Drs. at the Stonewall Clinic and Michelle and all the Home Care staff.
At my request there will be no funeral. Interment will take place at the Woodlands Cemetery at a later date.
Are you or someone you know planning a funeral?
