 On Friday August 14, 2020, Alexis Rose Mitchell passed away at the age of 68 after a long struggle with Multiple System Atrophy. Alexis was born September 29, 1951 to Alexander and Margaret (nee Bauer) Nabe in Roblin, MB, the 2nd of 6 children. Alexis grew up on the family farm in Manitoba, east of Togo, SK, attending elementary school in Makaroff and high school in Roblin. After high school she worked in Winnipeg for Vital Statistics. On September 4, 1971 she married Scott Mitchell. They lived in Togo until 1984 when they moved to Saskatoon. They raised 5 sons, Jonathan, Greg, David, Bryan, and Darren. Alexis was always willing to try something new and loved golfing, quilting, bird watching, puzzles and much more. She was an active participant at Faith Lutheran Church, enjoying time at Bible study and singing in the choir. Center in her life was her family, with frequent trips back home to the Togo area to visit loved ones. She particularly loved playing cards, board games and video games with her friends and family. She also loved curling, especially at the annual Roblin Bonspiel with her sisters. Later in life she became an avid Blue Jays fan, even taking a special trip with some of her family to see them. She was as happy winning as losing, as long as she was spending time with her friends and family. Alexis was preceded in death by her father and mother, Alexander and Margaret. She is survived by her husband, Scott, her son Jonathan (Deb) and their children Emily, Nathan, Alexander, and Lucas, son Greg (Erin) and their children William and Julia, son David (Katriona) and their children James, Robbie, and Penny, son Bryan (Arleece) and their daughter Isabelle, son Darren (Charlotte) and their son Rohan. She is also survived by her siblings Diana, Sandra, Gerald, Jack and Donna, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations made to Parkinson Canada (#110B-2103 Airport Dr., Saskatoon, SK S7L 6W2) in Alexis’ memory. Arrangements in care of David Schurr – Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.


Otto Frank Obituary

Watch Live Stream of Service by clicking here:

 On August 13th, 2020, at the age of 90, Otto Frank’s journey on earth ended and he joined his many siblings and loved ones in heaven. Otto is survived by his loving wife of 65 years Norma (nee Austin) Frank; son Dennis (Patty) Frank; daughter Lorrie (John) Hartley; son Kent (Cheryl) Frank; daughter Linda (Bernie) Laroque; granddaughter Christin (Geoff) Woods; grandson James McComb; granddaughter Samantha (Nathan) Frank; granddaughter Sarah (Michael) Frank; granddaughter Mykayla Laroque; great grandchildren, Griffin and Delaney Woods; brother Henry; sister Enid; sister Eleanor; sister Ruth. 

Otto was born near Bateman, Saskatchewan on February 17, 1930 to Henry and Christina Frank and was one of 15 children. It may have been growing up in the ‘30’s that developed Otto’s insatiable curiosity for how things worked. If you couldn’t buy it, you had to fix it or build it yourself and Otto could fix or build anything. Otto and Norma grew up in the same community and once he carried her pail of water home for her, they were a couple. 
They were married by Norma’s Grandfather on June 9, 1955 in Bateman, SK. During the early years of their marriage, Otto farmed and drove the school bus. After three and a half years of marriage and the birth of their first child, they moved to Saskatoon, where children two, three and four arrived. During his years in Saskatoon Otto owned a pool hall which he soon converted to a carpentry shop. Later he co-owned a fifth wheel\gymnasium equipment business, clothing store, was a Real Estate developer and worked for SARC. Otto’s real love was carpentry and his work building homes, cabinetry, church structures/furnishings can be witnessed throughout the city and province. The cabin he built at Echo Bay, from the ground up, was where he loved to be and he spent many happy times there with family and friends. He loved gardening, singing in the choir, puzzles and the Riders. His jokes always got giggles from his grandchildren, especially when they were directed at Grandma. He loved his kids, grandkids and great grandkids deeply and his pride in them was always evident in his own quiet way. Above all, his love for Norma was easily apparent when he looked at her……usually with a twinkle in his eye. We were so lucky to have him in our lives and will each, in our own way, carry on his legacy of commitment, kindness, forgiveness and willingness to help others. Thank you to the amazing staff at Sherbrooke Community Center who cared for and loved Otto throughout his last phase of life. The family is deeply saddened that due to the pandemic the service will be by invitation only and not all who knew and loved Otto will be able to attend. A private goodbye will be held on Monday August 17th, 2020 at 1:30 pm. Central Standard Time. For those who wish to attend virtually, a live streaming of the service will be available at www.saskatoonfuneralhome.com ‘live link’ attached to Otto’s obituary. Condolences for the family may also be left at this site. A celebration of Otto’s life will be planned at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan at Alzheimer.ca/en/sk.

June 28, 2020 Worship Service

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
As you know, we've resumed our in person, at church, worship services.

However, because many people have asked, we will be video taping the worship services now each Sunday, with posting to the internet by Monday following the Sunday worship service.

Please find the link for the  Sunday, June 28 worship service above.
Several notes about the audio:

  • We did experience some issues with the audio feed. There are some sound "spikes" in volume, and the entire feed is a bit "hot" (meaning the input level was set too high, resulting in some crackling. Unfortunately, there was nothing that could be done in  "post-production" while editing.
  • We have now resolved the above issues.
  • Pastor  Rudy forgot to remind the sound board operator to mute his microphone during the hymns, and so on the hymns your ears will be the subject of sound assault. The volume was turned down in post-production so that your ears would be spared at least a bit of pain.
Special thanks to Larry Mikulcik for operating the video camera!

June 28, 2020 was the 4th  Sunday After Pentecost. Psalm 84 reads: "How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God."  As we resume our worship service at Faith, we rejoice in His dwelling place among us. However, we also recognize that, for some, and for a variety of reasons, the choice to remain sheltered for this time is paramount. To that end, we will be video taping the services for later viewing on the internet. 


Welcome back!

Finally!
We will be returning to our in person worship services at Faith on Sunday, June 28. 
Here's a brief video explaining what to expect before, during and after the services.
