SCHENKER - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rita Mary Schenker, at the age of 60, on February 17, 2021 at RUH in Saskatoon, with her loving husband Ewald by her side. She was born on March 15, 1960 in Kerrobert, Sk. to John and Mary Wack. She was the youngest of twelve children. Rita was a very kind, loving and generous person and this was very evident in her caring for her mother, working at Saskatoon Home Support as a Care Provider for many years, and then working privately in North Battleford as a Care Provider for the elderly until her passing. Rita had a very bubbly personality, great sense of humour and enjoyed socializing. She was a very positive and happy person and Ewald would often hear her singing in the kitchen. She loved growing flowers, her favorite being begonias. Rita was an avid baker, always having an ample supply of goodies for Ewald. She was predeceased by her grandparents, Ignatz and Anne Wack and Phillip and Elizabeth Kessler; parents, John and Mary Wack; brothers: John Jr. Wack, Ignatz (Ann) Wack, Joe (Marlene) Wack, Benjamin Wack; sister Maggie Armitage (Lloyd Herlein and Glen); and brother-in-law Melvin McEachern.

The funeral service will be held on Saturday, February 27, 2021 at St. Vital Roman Catholic Church in Battleford with Fr. Sebastian Kunnath officiating. Interment will be at a later date.
