Pinel, Emilia

March 4th, 1920 – May 9th, 2018

Emilia was born in the Ponteix, SK area where she received her education.  In 1934, the family moved to Val Marie, SK and in 1941 she married Pierre Pinel.  Her first 2 children, Denise and Leo, were born at home and the third, Louis, was born at Cadillac, SK.  In 1946 Emilia, Pierre and the children moved to Mission, BC.  There Yvette, Helen, Florence, Lucille, and Claire were born.  In 1954, the family moved to Moose Jaw, SK where Emile and Roger were born.  Pierre passed away in 1985 and Emilia remained in their home in Moose Jaw until she moved to Foyer St. Joseph Nursing Home in Ponteix in 2011.  The only service club Emilia ever belonged to was the Catholic Women’s League, but her life was a life of total service, raising her children and taking an active role with her grandchildren and occasionally nieces and nephews.  Her love for the little ones was always evident.  She loved children.  She doted on the children and they loved her.  There were few luxuries in her life and she never expected any.  It was a life of sacrifice for the people that she loved.  Her last few years were very difficult as she had to live with immobility, but she passed away peacefully on Wednesday morning, May 9th, 2018 with her sisters Margeurite and Rose-Alma at her side.  She was predeceased by her husband, Pierre Pinel; daughters, Lucille Pinel and Claire Hosler; daughter-in-law, Bonnie Pinel; parents, Euclid and Alice Dumont; siblings: Alphonse (Yvonne) Dumont, Cecile (Leo) Schafer, Joseph (Wilma) Dumont, André (Helen) Dumont, Pierre (Virginia), and Gerard (Olga) Dumont; and sisters-in-law, Eleanor and Lucille.  Left to treasure her memory are her sons and daughters: Denise Cameron, Leo Pinel, Louis (Carol) Pinel, Yvette Pinel, Helen (Don) Watson, Florence La Rose, Emile (Dale) Pinel, and Roger Pinel; son-in-law, Lyle Hosler; grandchildren: Cheryl, Diana, Lisa, James, Christopher, Dominic, Pierre-Louis, Patrick, Anne-Marie, Jesse, Shane, Eliah, Isaac, Amanda, Jason, Ashley, Joel, Hailey, Jasmine, Nicholas, and Benjamin; twenty-nine great-grandchildren; and siblings: Stella, Marguerite, Rose-Alma, Laurent, Louise, Jeanne, and Michel.  A special thank you to all the staff of Foyer St. Joseph Nursing Home for their special dedication in caring for our mother.  You are wonderful people!  The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, May 18th, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. in St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, 1064 3rd Ave NW, Moose Jaw, SK.  Father George Thattubarambil will be the presiding celebrant and interment will take place at Sunset Cemetery.  A Vigil Prayer Service will be held on Thursday, May 17th, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home.  Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.  Gary McDowell, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
