Charles Willerth, living in Red Deer, Alberta, passed away on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at the age of 88 years. Charles was born in Indian Head, Saskatchewan on March 18, 1926 to Albert and Margaret Willerth. After growing up on a farm in Saskatchewan, he moved to Ontario for a few years where he met his wife, Pauline Gamache, who originally was from St. Paul, Alberta. They moved back to Saskatchewan where they farmed and raised four boys. Charles enjoyed the farming, hunting and fishing life. He was known to be very handy and was respected by the neighbours because he could build or fix almost anything! After retiring from full time farming in the late 1990’s, Charles spent his time golfing, gardening and playing cards. He loved playing golf and was always ready to start the 1st hole of the Indian Head Golf Club BEFORE the sun was up and shining in your face (even if the sun rises at 5 a.m. in June in Saskatchewan). He was predeceased by Pauline Willerth, his beloved wife of 49 years, his brother Gordon Willerth, and his sisters; Jean Wagner & Marlene Dick. He is survived by his brothers; Don Willerth (Connie) and Jerry Willerth (Doreen), his sisters; Louise Willerth and Joyce Tilton, his sons; Matthew Willerth, Mark Willerth (Brenda), Michael Willerth (Diana) and Eric Willerth (Tammy), his ten grandchildren; David (Sherry), Susie, Melanie (Dan), Joshua, Rebecca, Adam, Rachael, Megan, Alex and Abby, three great grandchildren; Kyle, Shayla and Marshall, and three great great grandchildren; Ava, Arlo and Abel. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire memorial tributes may be made directly to the Indian Head and District Hospital Foundation, Box 111, Indian Head SK, S0G 2K0. A Memorial Service for Charles will be held at the Indian Head Catholic Church on Friday, June 27, 2014 at 11 a.m., with a luncheon to follow. The family requests casual dress code (golfing attire).
