Blain, Gertrude
1919 - 2019

Gertrude Blain (née Zimmerman) of Stoughton, Sask. passed away on Saturday, September 21, 2019, just nine days short of her 100th birthday. Gertie was born near Torquay, Sask. on September 30, 1919 to Anton and Rose (née Breitenbach) Zimmerman who came to this country from Landau, Ukraine. She was the 9th of 11 children.

Gertie was predeceased by her husband, Roger; by her parents, and all of her older siblings: Florence Steier, Isabelle Soroko, Pauline McGillicky, Frank, Tony, Peter and Ralph Zimmerman and Caroline McKnight (as well as all their spouses).

She is survived by two daughters, Eleanor Blain of Brandon, Man. and Irene Haynes of Regina, Sask. as well as a son Roger (Sharon) Blain of Stoughton. Grandchildren include: Marguerite (Dallas) Torgunrud; Roger Luke (Glady) Blain, Matthew, Kathleen and Frederick; Andrew Haynes; Chris (Rosa) Haynes, Sierra and Allegra; Robert (Melissa) Haynes, Annabelle and Theodore; Heather (Bob) Faris and family, Matthew (Lindsay) Faris, Jackson; Rachel (Shane) Hardy, Harlow and Stella; Jenna Faris (Tyler); and Luke Faris, son Isaac. Gertie also has two surviving younger sisters, Edith Mohns of Prince George, B.C. and Eleanor Vipond of Weyburn, Sask. as well as numerous nephews and nieces.

Gertie’s long life has been devoted to hard work, helping on the farm, and especially to her family. An elderly gentleman told me the other day, “she was a real lady”. She will be greatly missed by all her family.

The Funeral Mass for Gertie was celebrated on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady of La Salette R.C. Church, Forget, Sask. by Rev. Yodel Cereno. Interment followed at the parish cemetery, after which a luncheon was held at the Royal Canadian Legion in Stoughton.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Our Lady of La Salette Parish, Box 40, Forget, Sask., S0C 0X0 in Gertie’s memory.

My condolences to the Blain family. I went to school in Stoughton with Irene and my sister Marion and walked over to the Blain farm and watched TV and spent time with the family. I have a lot of wonderful memories of the years of my friendship with Irene. Irene and the family are in my prayers. Praying that God will bless you during this difficult time.
