André François Joseph Creurer

CREURER, André François Joseph - October 3, 1918 - September 4, 2017 Mr. André François Joseph Creurer of Chateau Providence, St. Brieux, SK, passed away at his residence on Monday, September 4, 2017. He was 98 years of age. André, the eldest of five children, was born on October 3, 1918, to Joseph and Cecile (nee Fagnou) Creurer at home on the family farm near St. Brieux. He started his education at Lacombe country school at the age of seven. André's love of nature was nurtured by his first teacher. He became a life-long learner. One of the highlights of his studies was attending a mechanics and ag course in Melfort as a young man. There, he was awarded top place honors and earned a scholarship to attend the University of Saskatchewan. André was needed on the farm and had to decline. He had an avid interest in science and history. André had a love of all things farming, McGyvering, the physics and strategy of curling, and all manner of critters - wild and tame. Grandpa had a strong love for his wife, Annette, his family, and a special place in his heart for his grandchildren and great-grandson, George. André will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his five children, nine grandchildren, and one great-grandchild: Anne (Alois) Flaman of Southey, SK, and family, Michelle (Dan) Way and their son George, Eric Flaman (Kelsey Paskell); Bernadette (Ken) McPherson of Grenfell, SK, and family, Douglas McPherson, and Anne (Joel) Nameth; Yvonne (Brent) Silzer of Watson, SK, and family Ryan Silzer (Kate Fielder), and Greg Silzer (Jayde Ronvel); Joseph (Susan) Creurer of St. Brieux, SK, and family, Sarah (Mark) Wandy, Matthew Creurer, and Alissa (George) Dodds; and Jeanne Creurer of Regina, SK. He is also survived by his sister-in-law, Jeanne Creurer; brothers-in-law: Joseph LeGatt, Marc Crozon, and Claude Crozon; sister-in-law, Margery Crozon; and by numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
