 Elmer Allan Schroeder

1944 ~ 2017 

On Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at the Boundary Trails Health Centre, Elmer Schroeder, age 73 of Morden, formerly of the 1-6 District went to his eternal rest.  

He leaves to mourn his wife, Marion (nee Wiebe), sister, Shirley Schroeder of Winnipeg, brother-in-law, Shorty (George) and Esther Wiebe, sisters-in-law, Marge Thiessen and Ruth Porter, one uncle, Arnold (Tiny) Deere, nieces, a nephew, great nieces,  great nephew and great great nieces and nephews. 

He was predeceased by his parents, Gustav (1978) and Lydia (2003) Schroeder and sister, Ilene (Krueger) (2002). 

Elmer was born in Morden and raised on the family farm at SE24-1-6.  On July 29, 1966 Elmer married Marion Wiebe of Morden.  Elmer and Marion spent their first years as husband and wife living in town.  Elmer was a truck driver at the time working for Pearce Construction hauling gravel.  In 1968 they moved out to the family farm and Elmer spent the next number of years farming and raising horses.  Horses were a true passion of Elmer's.  He enjoyed training them as well as trail riding them.  After 12 years of farming he took to the road again, purchased his own highway tractor and did most of his hauling for Kleysens Transport.  He then sold his highway tractor and took a short time off before he went to work for JB Agri.  During his many years on the road he had the help and support of his wife Marion who took care of the farm and most importantly his horses, dog and cats.  After many years of driving the highways Elmer retired from truck driving but longed to drive the highways with a different kind of horse power and that is when his love for the Harley Davidson really started. His love for his Harley stayed with him all his days. In 1999 Elmer and Marion moved to town.  Elmer continued to make daily trips to the farm to check on things until the farm was sold in 2015. 

Elmer was very organized and very particular in his life; whether it was his home, his horses, his pets or his vehicle he took great pride and care in all of them.  

Elmer will be missed by his wife, family and friends.   

A private interment will be held at Hillside Cemetery.  

If friends so desire donations can be made in Elmer's memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
