Susan Mae Schettler, known by all as Mae, was born August 17, 1939 in the Molesworth district. Mom was one of 9 children born to Percy & Dorothy Squires. She married Arnold Schettler on August 18, 1956 at the United Church in Glenella. Mom and Dad enjoyed 60 wonderful years of marriage together living on the family farm in the Grass River district.
On April 25, 2018 Heaven gained a very precious Gem…at the time of Mom’s passing she was at the Neepawa Hospital with family by her side.
Mom leaves behind her family, sons Doug (Pam), Blaine (Sharon) and daughter Bonny Soper; grandchildren from oldest to youngest Nathan (Nicole) Schettler, Lois Schettler, Zachery Schettler (Alyssa), Alyssa (Tyson) Guenther, Cody (Sarah) Schettler, Lyndon Soper (Melanie) and Katlyn (Myron) Enns; great granddaughters Aryn Schettler, Emma Schettler and Sophie Schettler; one sister Irene Lambourne as well as many precious nieces, nephews, good friends and sister by heart Shirley Katsky and very dear and close friend Ruby Walker.
In 2016 Mom lost her lifelong partner, Arnold, who was the love of her life. Throughout her years, Mom suffered many tragic losses but was never so deeply hurt as when her grandson Layne Soper died unexpectedly at the age of 8 years old and then some time later when she lost her infant great grandson Xavier Schettler.
Mom, as you carry on with your next journey in life, we thank you for all your love, understanding and guidance.
Love, your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and their families.
