Irma Neta Roth

February 21, 1933May 6, 2020

On the afternoon of May 6, 2020, in Kipling, Saskatchewan, Irma Neta Roth (nee Singer) journeyed on to new life after a brief battle with cancer.

Irma was born in Kipling on February 21, 1933 to Christopher and Maria Singer, the second eldest of 11 children. She learned early in life to work hard and developed a myriad of wonderful talents! Her siblings many times teased her that she got all the gifts and abilities and they were all left wanting. She was a seamstress, crocheter, knitter, macramer, first rate cook, award winning baker, builder, was the community wedding cake decorator and the list goes on. She basically created everything in the home except the wall to wall carpets, yet remained very humble and kind. Her flower and vegetable gardens were huge and amazing and she readily shared its bounty with many of us. Besides all of this, Gramma was a first rate farm hand! From milking, to haying, to grain truck driving, to sausage making, she was counted on for many a task, which she completed with nary a complaint. Irma and Lorence rarely missed a gathering, sharing joys and sorrows with new and old members of their beloved church family and community. Irma was warm, humble, loving and giving and she was loved by all of us.

Irma was predeceased by her parents; her son Eldin; siblings: Hilda, Bill, Art and Adolf; and nephew Jason. Left to mourn her passing is her husband of 67 years Lorence, her sons Daryle (Lynn), and Rick (Trina), both of Kipling, daughter-in-law Elaine of Brandon, Manitoba and the grandchildren and great-grandchildren that she loved without measure: Carrie (Andy, Evan, Eli), Cheyanne (Trevor, Jack), Eris (Owen, Everley), Shalane (Bryce), Brad, Christie (Brendon, Molly), Lane, Aaron and Carson. She will also be so missed by her siblings: Evelyn, Doreen, Fred, Walter, Leonard and Gary.

Rest easy Gramma, you deserve it!

Due to Covid – 19 restrictions there will be a private family graveside service at the Edenland Cemetery, Kipling, Saskatchewan.

Many thanks to Greg Kulak of Tubman Funeral Home for his kind assistance and also thanks to Pastor Terry Simonson for conducting the service.

Oh behalf of my Mom, Pat Daku, we wanted to send a message to you Lorence, your sons, daughter in laws and all the family.

Mom shares that you were such good neighbors to her and Henry. Thank you for being with us at the funeral when Henry passed away last year.

Last summer was a special visit with Irma and Lorence when we stopped by the farm unexpectedly when Barry was taking us on a farm tour. You both gave us all such a warm welcome! We enjoyed so much your beautiful garden and the visit! Mom also shares a memory of how you both did everything together over all these years!

We were so sorry to hear about Irma's passing and are thinking about you all. We send our sympathies and have many wonderful memories of her. Pat Daku (and Laurie Daku)(and rest of the family too)

Deepest sympathy to Lorence, Daryle, Rick and your families. Irma was a kind and lovely soul, and a true artist. She created our beautiful wedding cake and many other cakes to celebrate our family milestones. Irma and Lorence have nurtured their family, and their entire community, beyond measure and we are so grateful. May your most precious memories sustain you at this sad time.

Irma was always involved and helpful in all our church gatherings. Also present in the community and always had a smile and positive comments. I’m really going to miss her. Our condolences to Lorence and all the family.

My sympathies and sincere condolences to Lorence and the Roth Family in the loss of a loved one. Irma was always there to share a moment with Carol and I (and with me after Carol's passing) when visiting family next door, or meeting in town. She will forever remain in my memory and in my prayers and may she now rest in peace.
