1929 ~ 2024 (age 94)

Lillian Irene Senger nee Obermeyer of Kerrobert, Saskatchewan died peacefully in her sleep on January 22, 2024, with her daughter Janice at her side.  Lillian was 94 years of age at the time of her passing.

Lillian was born in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan on October 25, 1929, to Joseph and Helen Obermeyer. Lillian spent her elementary school years in Broadacres, Saskatchewan and then attended St. Gabriel’s School (convent) in Biggar, Saskatchewan.  After graduating she went on to attend nursing school at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. 

Upon graduating from nursing, she returned to the Kerrobert area where she married Leo Senger in 1952 in Broadacres, Sk. After a few years they moved from the farm to Kerrobert where they raised their family, daughters Janice and Wendy; and sons Jim, Trent, and Allan.  Lil finished her nursing career as the matron of Beuna Vista Lodge in Kerrobert. 

Lil was an avid Bingo player, and she taught her grandchildren how to play the game.  Lil enjoyed travel and went on several cruises.  One of the highlights for Lil was going to the Obermeyer factory in Germany.  Her overall favourite travel was the infamous Senger Family Camping Trips where there was always much noise and laughter. 

Lil was an active member of Our Lady of Assumption’s CWL, but she is most remembered as the key organist for the choir where she accompanied not only Sunday masses but also special occasions where her talents helped others celebrate their special day.

Lil was predeceased by her parents, her husband Leo, and her brother Gerry. Lil is survived by her five children: Janice and Darryl Morris of Kerrobert, Saskatchewan, Wendy and Miles Weatherhead of Summerland, B.C., Jim and Janice Senger of New Market, Ontario, Trent and Jayne Senger of Corman Park, Saskatchewan, and Allan and Heather Senger of North Battleford, Saskatchewan. Lil also leaves behind her seventeen grandchildren, and nineteen great-grandchildren.

Mass of Christian burial will be at Our Lady of Assumption in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan on January 27, 2024, at 10:30 am.  The celebrant is Father Charles Nweze with internment to follow at Kerrobert Cemetery.  Reception after internment will be at Our Lady of Assumption.
