Joseph “Joe” Gerhard Seier
May 16, 1935 – September 11, 2023
It is never easy saying good-bye, however today we must announce the passing of Joseph Seier on September 11, 2023, at Humboldt District Hospital, Humboldt, Saskatchewan. Joe was born on May 16, 1935, to Aloys and Maria Seier. He attended Korbel School and went on to attend Voc Ag College in Saskatoon, SK. He worked for a time in Hinton, Alberta in the lumber camps before taking up farming on the family farm. On July 8, 1957, he married his soul partner and best friend, Alice (Koenig). They enjoyed 66 years of marriage, and were blessed with four daughters, Patsy, Jean, Colleen and Brenda. Farming was his passion. He loved working the land and he loved his animals. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and gardening. He had many memorable trips with his buddies, and later with his grandsons. The best trips, however, were special fishing trips with Alice and their fishing buddies John and MaryAnne. Joe retired from farming in 2000 and built his forever home in Watson where they spent the rest of his years. He found a new hobby, coffee at TC’s with all his buddies. That’s where all world problems were discussed and resolved. He maintained an active interest in farming and made many trips to the farm, just to offer help, check the crops, and mainly give advice. Joe loved spending time at his cabin at Greenwater Provincial Park with the family. Many good times were spent around the campfire that lasted late into the evening where Joe shared stories with his family. Joe will be lovingly remembered and missed by: his wife Alice; daughter, Patsy Marsh and family, Joey and children Brody and Tenley; daughter, Jean Thompson and family: Billy (Lindsey) and children Jake, Avery and Owen; and Jenna; daughter, Colleen (Dave) Sondershausen and family: Brittany (Simon) and children Hayden and Cameron; Michael (Amanda); and daughter, Brenda (Kelly) Strueby and family: Jeremy (Kerri) and children Jayna, Lincoln and Charlize; Jesse (Amanda) and son, Jackson; and Jerrett (Taran); his sister Mary Schmitz-Lefebvre; sisters-in-law Mary Anne (John) Stratton, and Annette Koenig; brother-in-law, Lorne Molle; many nieces and nephews; and many friends. He was predeceased by: his great-grandson, Daniel Thompson; parents, Aloys and Maria Seier; parents-in-law, Clemens and Betty Koenig; brothers-in-law, Larry Koenig, Clarence Schmitz, and Marcel Lefebvre; and sister- in-law Joan Molle.
