Mom was born in Saskatoon June 30, 1932 to Henry and Anne (nee Lambert) Billesberger. She attended a number of schools in her younger years as the family moved around. She attended her grade 11-12 years at the Ursuline Acad- emy in Bruno, SK. After graduation she went to Normal School where she got her teaching certificate. She accepted a position at High Gate School and lived with Roman and Margaret Engele. Mom met Dad at the Engele’s and they were married on August 17, 1954. We lived in Humboldt until 1966 when we moved to Bruno with Dad’s job. In 1971 we moved to Wilkie where Mom started working at St. George’s School until 1979 when they moved back to Humboldt. Mom became the secretary at St. Augustine School until her retirement in 1991. Mom and Dad enjoyed their retirement years, fishing and camping with the grandchildren. They loved travelling and made many casino trips with Uncle Bert and Aunt Blanche until Dad’s health no longer allowed it. Mom loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren dearly. Mom and Dad belonged to the Ursuline Associates where they volunteered their time. Mom was a kind-hearted soul who loved life and her family and extended family. She welcomed the additions to her family with open arms and warm hugs. Mom was a widow for four years and missed Dad very much.
