SATHER: Leona (nee Paproski)
Leona (87) passed away peacefully at Watrous District Health Complex on November 6, 2020, with 2 family members at her side (per COVID restrictions). She was mother, grandmother, GG, sister, auntie, and friend. She will be missed!
Leona was born on March 24, 1933 to Jack and Margaret Paproski. Her early years were on the farm in the Sinnet area. After graduating Grade 12 in Humboldt, Leona moved to Saskatoon where she began work as a telephone operator. Soon, she transferred to Watrous, where she met Palmer. They were married on June 9, 1953. Leona was no stranger to hard work having lived on the farm for many years. Eventually, she sought work off the farm, starting at the Chalet Pool, then Sears Catalogue Office, and eventually, Manitou Lodge where she worked for 21 years. Mom was of strong character; something all her children recognized. She held the family together and raised us to be strong, responsible, and independent.
Mom loved to bake buns, pies, and cookies. She taught us that food was a good way to support friends and family! Her grandchildren always looked forward to fresh buns, pickles, and the bag of popcorn curls for the ride home. She sewed clothes for us as children, crocheted and knit afghans, baby blankets, and many, many dish cloths and pot holders. She always enjoyed dances and playing cards with family and friends.
Memories will be cherished by her children Brian and his sons Dale (Patty, Danica), Mark; Bonnie (Rob Tomiyama) and children Patrick (Kaitlyn), Ryan (Esther), Alison; Cindy (Keith Vanthuyne) and children Jory (Sarah, Chase, Rylen), Brittany (Luc Poissant, Kyra, Macy), Braydon (Jaime, Emrie, Everett); Caralee (Dean Strome, Troy, Jennifer); sisters Dorene (Melvin Jaeb), Muriel Loeffler, Brenda (Brian Rowe); in-laws Bertha Paproski, Marlene Paproski, Thelma Sather; and many nieces and nephews.
Leona was predeceased by her husband Palmer (1997); her father John (1989), mother Margaret (1990), brothers Mervyn, Wilfred, Norman, and an infant sister; father-in-law Sverre (1952), mother-in-law Marie (1985), bothers-in-law Harold Sather, Ed Dewy, Don McKenzie, Harold Sundquist, Clarence Sather, Melvin Sather, Wilfred Loeffler; sisters-in-law Sophie Dewey, Mabel McKenzie, Anna Sundquist, Jean Sather; nephews Darren Sather, Gary McKenzie, niece Brenda Blundell, nephew-in-law Gordie Blundell.
Leona was blessed to have many good friends. She enjoyed living at Westridge the past 11 years and developed more friendships there.
The family thanks the Home Care staff for the support that allowed Mom to remain in her home the past 6 months, and the staff at Watrous Hospital who cared for Mom and supported family the last week of her life.
Due to COVID-19 Restrictions – A Private Family Memorial Service will be held at Our Redeemers Lutheran Church, Watrous, SK on Saturday, November 14, 2020 with Rev. Marie-Louise Ternier officiating. Private Family Interment in Watrous Cemetery. For online condolences, tributes or, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Our Redeemers Lutheran Church or Watrous Homecare please visit

My deepest condolence to all of Leona's family. She was a wonderful person and a great friend, always had a lovely smile and a fun conversation. I think of her fondly as I use the lovely tea towels that she gave me when I was her Prayer Partner. May you be blessed with peace and comfort as you share treasured memories. Our love. Deanna & Wayne Lewis

I worked with Leona within Westridge as activity programmer for 8 years, she was so much fun and told it like it was. I loved that about her, going to miss her smile and personality. Condolences to all the family, she’s going to be missed by everyone she cared about.

As you have already written, your Mom was a strong person who worked hard. I know she also stood tall and met challenges face to face, handling them with her “best”. When I was a young girl and came to your house, I remember her being very welcoming, not to mention friendly and a great cook! You will miss her so treasure the life lessons and memories she left for you. Thinking of you all, Ruth & Herb Kornelsen.
