Szmutku, Louise

Louise met Stanley, her husband, on November 18, 1958 while she was working at Regina General Hospital as a Certified Nursing Assistant. Stanley was admitted to the isolation wing and as they say...it was love right from the start. They were married in Regina on October 20, 1959. In March 1960 Louise and Stanley moved to a farm in the Atwater area and began farming. In 1967, Louise and Stanley purchased his parent's farm near Stockholm and continued to farm. While on the farm in Stockholm, Louise worked in a Care Facility in Esterhazy from 1979 - 1999. In 1999 they retired and moved to Yorkton. Louise and Stanley were blessed with three children, Sandra, Mark and Crystal and two granddaughters, Bailey and Casey. Louise continued working part time at a care facility in Yorkton after her and Stanley "retired". She enjoyed helping and visiting with her clients. For many years she enjoyed playing Bingo while they lived on the farm near Stockholm, as well as after they moved to Yorkton. Louise enjoyed her vegetable garden on the farm - and friends and neighbours enjoyed the vegetables! She missed her garden once she moved to Yorkton, but she was fiercely proud of her house plants. Louise loved to bake torte cakes for her friends. She never was a TV person; instead, she kept busy and her mind active doing puzzles, Find A Word, Crosswords and the like. Louise was living in a senior's apartment complex in Yorkton at the time of her passing on December 26, 2017. Louise was predeceased by her parents, brother and sister. She is survived by her three children, Sandra, Mark and Crystal and her granddaughters, Bailey and Casey. Friends so wishing may forward their condolences to the family by visiting www.christiesfuneralhome.com. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Chrisite's Funeral Home & Crematorium, Yorkton, Saskatchewan.
