Leslie Mary Beny

“Cuddle Time” with the Waterton cabin’s “Favorite Storyteller”
Leslie Mary Beny - passed away December 11, 2014 in Victoria, B.C.
A very precious soul, whose heart was so full of love for her family....
      I’m Gone......
I’ve come to the end of my journey
and I’ve travelled my last weary mile,
Forget if you can, that I ever suffered
And remember only my Smile.

Forget to grieve for my going,
I would not have you sad for a day,
But in summer just gather some
“Purple Carnations”
and place them where I will lay.

And come in the evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west,
Stand for a few moments beside me
and remember only my best....

Moms, 15 grandkids, 21 great grandkids and their parents will gather in the summer for her final farewell.

Phyllis Schorr 1940 - 2014

 

As you are biting into your next piece of Kuchen, or gooey cinnamon buns, you may be reminded of Phyllis Schorr. On November 15, 2014 Phyllis Marie Schorr (Franz) started her eternal life where she is joined by her perfect “blue skirt waltz” dance partner David Schorr.  Her spirit is carried on by her: twelve children, twenty three grandchildren, one great grandchild, five siblings and extended family of relations and friends from every walk of life. 
A pioneer in recycling and composting; years ahead of her time.  She was not only skilled in baking but also in child rearing.  Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandkids; who loving refer to her as Grandma, Nana and Little Grandma.  Whether it was hitching a ride on the grey hound, jet setting to White Horse or even traveling by boat; she was always there.  Proudly attending concerts, dance recitals, performances, and hockey games or being a last minute baby sitter.  Her maternal talent extended beyond her own children to her grandchildren, family, friends and even strangers.  Her words of wisdom or advice usually started with “well we didn’t worry about that back in my day.”  During her 74 years she has taught us many life lessons. Here are a few we would like to share:
1.    The need for clarification: for example when your husband says he has always wanted a large family it is best to get the exact number…..12?
2.    The importance of delegation:  There was no reason the older children could not care for the younger ones;
3.     Take time to enjoy the things you love, whether that it is going to a movie, a concert, ballet   “thunder from down under,” plays or clapping and singing to Fiddler on the Roof;
4.    The importance of a good glass of wine or coconut rum;
5.    There is always more than one use for a yogurt container;
6.    You are never too old to try new things or go to Vegas;
7.    Have your cake and eat it too … even if it is for breakfast;
8.    Never be without a Kleenex and never worry about leaving them behind;
9.    You are never too old to start a new career (even if it is a paper route which she start in her 60’s, had more than 1 route and did up to the week she passed);
10.    There is nothing wrong with a little vanity.  As mom always said “you got our beauty from me and your brains from dad”;
11.    Always celebrate special occasions: After 12 kids, endless homemade birthday cakes, Easter cakes and family dinners - you would think she would be all baked out…but she wasn’t; and
12.    Always remember things are cheaper by the dozen!
Left to honor her memory are her twelve children: Patsy Stehr (Eugine Stehr) Robert Schorr (Kaye Cano),  Bruce Schorr,  Donna Lee Lawson (Andrew Lawson), Rhonda Fur (John Fur), Tony Schorr, Stacey Schorr,(Claude Paquin) Stephanie Schorr (Lee Malanchuk), Becky Schorr (Glen Henderson), Mandy Lehr (Scott Lehr), Cassandra McKillop
(Michael McKillop), Michealene Hillis (Kevin Hillis) twenty three grandchildren: Nathan Stehr, Thomas Stehr, Jonathan Stehr,  Hunter Cano, Chealsey Cano , Samantha  Romeril , Spencer McNamara, Payton Lawson, Harrison Lawson, Jeroen Lawson, Alyssa Fur, Robyn-Lynn Fur, Emila Schorr, Barrett Furchner, Kaleigh Henderson, Rowan Henderson, Meranda Lehr, Niklas Lehr, Markus Lehr, Cody Hillis, Gage Hillis, Colt Hillis, Allie Hillis; one great grandchild: Ty Romeril; five siblings: Morley Franz, Alec Franz, Josephine Good, Deloris Los, Bonita Franz and Beverley Viduk.


A celebration of life will be held in Elkwater as it is a place that was special to her and her family.  Having spent many fond memories there over the years.  It will be held at the Elkwater Hall 318 4 Ave.  Saturday, November 22, 2014 from 2:00-5:00 pm.  A public viewing will be held at PATTISON FUNERAL HOME Thursday November 20, 2014 from 6:00-8:00 pm.  

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital, Palliative Care (cheques payable to MH&D Health Foundation) 666 5th Street SW, Medicine Hat, T1A 4H6 or online at www.InYourCommunity.ca or to the Canadian Cancer Society #102 Crestwood Square One, 1865 Dunmore Road SE, Medicine Hat, AB T1A 1Z8. To e-mail an expression of sympathy, please direct it to: pattfh@telusplanet.net subject heading:  Phyllis Schorr.

Debbie fought a long and courageous battle against Breast Cancer, being diagnosed first in January 1992 and then again in of June 2005. Her fight was fueled by the love she had for all of her family.  She found strength in the love she had for her predeceased father, Andrew Lysitza who she loved dearly in life and after his passing. 

Debbie enjoyed spending her summers in her condo on wheels parked either at Rattlesnake or Emma Lake, Saskatchewan.  She enjoyed her Tuesday morning coffees with the coffee ladies where they would solve all the world's problems.  She valued her relationships with the staff of the Margery E Yuill Cancer Centre, and considered herself an honorary employee after her 22 years of service.  She enjoyed cruising the seas with her husband.  But most of all she enjoyed time spent, wherever it was, as long as she was surrounded by the loves of her life Deryk, Alecia, Courtnie and Chelsie, her three sweethearts Parker, Paiten and Penley, and the three special men that joined her life Vaughn, Jared and Jordan.
