Bernadette was born on May 7, 1926 to Paul and Mary Bauml on the family farm, the second of six children. She was raised in the Marysburg, SK area where she spent her days helping with the daily chores of the farm. In her earlier years, she drove tractor helping in the fields and became a huge help in the kitchen. She attended school in Marysburg until Grade 9, when it was necessary to help full time on the farm. On October 11, 1949 she married Arthur Schemenauer, the love of her life. Bernadette and Art settled close to their parents and began farming in the Marysburg area. Together they raised seven children and worked hard to build a good life. But it wasn’t all hard work as they enjoyed many holidays with family and friends. Card games, yearly fishing trips, square dancing, curling bonspiels, and travel were favorite pastimes. In 1980, Bernadette and Art built a beautiful retirement home in Lake Lenore, SK where they enjoyed their grandchildren and family gatherings. She moved to Caleb Retirement Village in Humboldt, SK in 2014 where she fully enjoyed her final retirement years. Bernadette is survived by her seven children: Linda (Ray) Politeski, Joe (Heather) Schemenauer, Susan (Allan) Mamer, Alan (Julie) Schemenauer, Jeanie Lysitza, Laurie Stephens, and Jim (Shannon) Schemenauer; 21 grandchildren; 29 great-grandchildren; sisters: Anne Prodahl, Joan Allen, and Dorothy Hopfner; sisters-in-law: Vicki Bauml, Lillian Bauml, and Theresa Schemenauer; numerous nieces and nephews; and life long friends. Bernadette was predeceased by her husband, Arthur Schemenauer, in 1993; son-in-law, Terry Lysitza; brothers, Ray Bauml and Clarence Bauml; and many loved in-laws.
