Alvin Ernest Amendt
September 2, 1950 – February 18, 2023

It is with deep sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of Alvin Ernest Amendt, peacefully at home on February 18, 2023, following a battle with ALS. Alvin was born September 2, 1950, in Saskatoon, SK. He was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church. He started his schooling in Lampard. Then when the family moved to Jansen homestead Alvin went to Jansen elementary and on to Lanigan High School. In 1969-70 Alvin went to Sask. Institute of Applied Arts & Science for Farm Machinery Mechanics. He worked at Star Phoenix and a garage on 22nd St. Saskatoon. After tech school Alvin worked at several potash mines. He always helped with the farm work at home but eventually he ventured out with his own farm near Jansen. He worked at Lanigan Potash mine while farming for a few years but had to make a choice between the two. He chose full time grain farming and knew it was the right choice. His strong work ethic was undeniable at whatever job he did. Throughout his life he indulged in his love of sports, playing broomball, hockey, fastball, school football and curling; later years watching all sports on t.v. Also for many years he would get up early to join his friends at the local coffee shop by 5:00 am. Alvin will be lovingly remembered by his wife of almost 33 years, Louise; three children and seven grandchildren: Mark (Tracy) Amendt, Emersyn, and Preslie; Christene (Mike) Laurans, Bria, Shaylee, and Reid; Cheryl (Justin) Bartel, Molly, and Nash; brother Reuben (Caroline); sister Rose (Kelvin) Nernberg; Louise’s six brothers and sisters, along with their spouses; and many nieces and nephews. Alvin was predeceased by his son Shawn, his parents Ernst and Sophie (née Holfeld) Amendt; sister Shirley (at birth); younger brother Eldon; in-laws Andre and Helen Dumont; nephew Preston Rushka; and beloved grand-puppy Tessa. The Funeral Service for Alvin was held on Monday, February 27, 2023, at 2:00 p.m., at the Jansen Community Hall, Jansen, SK, officiated by Deacon Jack Robson. Others taking part were: pianist Angel Liebrecht, music ministry; Mark Amendt, urn bearer; honorary pallbearers: Garnet Zerbin, Dean Schroeder, Garth Zerbin, Elmer Kinzel, and Glenn Schulz; Cynthia Zerbin, and Roxanne Schindel, memorial table attendants; Tracy Kendel, eulogist; Deacon Jack Robson, scripture reader. The memorial luncheon was held afterwards at the Jansen Community Hall, and interment will follow at a later date in the Jansen Community Cemetery, Jansen, Saskatchewan. Memorial donations may be directed either to the Jansen Public Cemetery Fund (c/o PO Box 116, Jansen, SK, S0K 2B0), or to the ALS Society of Saskatchewan (2430 8th Ave. – Unit C, Regina, SK, S4R 5E3).
