Lottie Louise Emma Smith passed away peacefully on May 10, 2022 at the Carrot River Nursing Home. She was 95 years of age.
Lottie was the youngest of seven children born in 1926 at Hawarden, Saskatchewan to Carl & Magdalena Wiese.
In 1930, the family moved to Choiceland where they ran a dairy. Mom talked of many hard times but also the fun times they had, mostly with Aunt Dorothy & Uncle Richard as they were growing up.
Lottie married Dale Smith on April 25, 1946. Grandma & Grandpa Wiese gave them a cow for a wedding present. This began their life of farming which continued for 37 years in the Crocken Hill District.
Over the years, Lottie worked hard on the farm, having a large garden, helping her husband Dale, all the while having one, two or three youngsters hanging onto her apron strings. She was active at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Choiceland and in both the curling & skating rinks.
In November, 1983, the move was made to Nipawin. In their retirement, Lottie & Dale continued to curl as well as taking up golfing. They became great supporters of the Nipawin Hawks. Lottie also became active at the Zion Lutheran Church and with the Ladies Aid in Nipawin.
Lottie was predeceased by her husband: Dale; her sons: Lyle and Bob; her son-in-law, Al; her grandson, Dan; her parents: Carl & Magdalena Wiese; and her siblings.
She will be remembered and missed by her surviving family: her children: Carol, Elaine, Doug (Iris), Bev, Linda (Abe), Sandra (Barry), Karen (Ken) and Al (Jodi); her daughter-in-law, Myrna; her grandchildren; her great-grandchildren; her great-great-grandchildren; and her brother-in-law, Lloyd (Irene) Smith.
We love you mom. Rest in Peace.
