Alfred Edward Schiman March 15, 1924 - July 2, 2016
Was born in the family home on a farm near Esk, the youngest of six children, with four sisters and one brother. He attended school for seven years, attaining Grade 8, and at only 14, he joined his father full-time to run the family farm. They worked the fields with horses, hauled water, and struggled with the common hazards of the 1930s farmer, including drought, rust, hail, frost, weeds, and debt.
By the 1940s, the farm began to do better and the family had enough money scraped together for a new home, which Alfred and his father built together. About this time, Alfred began courting Alma Brehm, whom he'd known since childhood, and they married in 1947.
Alfred and Alma ran the farm together with his parents, and after his parents retired, they helped to look after them as well. Three children came into their lives… Ernie in 1948, Elaine in 1959, and David in 1961. By the mid-50s, the family had moved into Jansen, and Alfred continued to farm and earn extra money through carpentry. In 1973, they moved once more to Lanigan. By the time Alma passed away in 2012, Alfred was beginning to become frail himself. He moved from the family home to an apartment in Lanigan in 2013.
Alfred was pre-deceased by his parents, brother Theo and sisters Hilda, Wanda, Martha and Gertie.
A Funeral Service was held on Saturday, July 9, 2016 from LifePoint Church Lanigan. Officiated by, Rev. Kevin Sawatsky and Rev. Randy Paupst. Interment followed at Jansen Cemetery. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to MALINOSKI & DANYLUIK FUNERAL HOME Humboldt.
