In Loving Memory of Adam Osiowy
Adam Osiowy, beloved by his family and friends, went to meet his Lord and Saviour, Jesus, on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2019 at 80 years of age.
Adam was born in Lemberg, SK. on Jan. 12, 1939. He is survived by his loving family: his wife of 54 years, Leona; his daughters, Carla (Greg) Paulson, Brenda (Jerry) Schuetz and Lisa Osiowy; seven grandchildren: Jonathan (Sue) Paulson, Judah (Maria) Paulson, Stefan Paulson, Julissa Paulson, Jared (Alexia) Schuetz, Samuel Schuetz, Joshua Schuetz; and three great-grandchildren: Adam, Felicity and Tobias Paulson. He is also survived by brother, Tim (Sandra) Osiowy; mother-in-law, Victoria Dimler; sister-in-law, Gloria Osiowy; brothers-in-law, Richard (Marcia) Dimler, Larry (Ann) Dimler; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Adam was predeceased by his parents, Joseph Sr. and Clara Osiowy; brother, Joseph Osiowy; and father-in-law, John Dimler.
Adam received his education in country schools near Lemberg and Grenfell. In 1953 he moved with his family from Lemberg to a farm northeast of Grenfell. As a young man he worked on farms, the pipeline and Schlamp’s Garage. Later, he attended the Full Gospel Bible Institute in Eston, SK. In 1963 he moved to Swift Current, SK. to begin a career in finishing carpentry.
He married Leona Dimler, the love of his life, in 1964. After welcoming two daughters, they returned to Grenfell to begin farming. Their third daughter was born in Grenfell.
Adam and Leona enjoyed farming for 42 years until he suffered a devastating stroke. His final eight years were spent in hospitals and nursing homes.
During his life, Adam was active in his local church, Bible camps and community. He loved singing, playing guitar, competing in softball, curling, golf and table tennis.
At a young age, he committed his life to Christ. He lived a rich, full life, serving Jesus and others. Adam’s legacy lives on in his descendants and all those his life touched.
We, his family, would like to thank Adam’s caregivers over the past eight years – doctors, NPs, CCAs, cooks, housekeeping, management and all staff who provided kind and loving care and support to him and to us. God bless you.
