We Remember

SCHNACKENBERG, Regina (née Usselman)

April 17, 1929 — March 21, 2020

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother Regina Schnackenberg.

Regina was born on April 17, 1929 near Allan, Saskatchewan and passed away suddenly at the age of 90 on March 21, 2020 at Kelowna General Hospital. Regina was a loving mother who will be missed dearly by her children: Gary, Rod (Deb), Darrell (Lesley), Karen (Jim), and Randy (Cara). She is also survived by her grandchildren: James, Andrew, Steven, Stephanie, Leah, Matthew, Caylm, and Reid, as well as her sister Andelina Senger. Regina was predeceased by her parents Martin and Frances, as well as her brothers John and Edward.

Regina was born on the family farm near Allan, Saskatchewan. She was the 2nd oldest of 4 children. She moved to Saskatoon and worked at the Bessborough Hotel where she met Hermann Schnackenberg. Soon after they were married, in the mid 50’s, they moved to Kelowna, BC and there raised 5 children. Regina loved music (she played the accordion) and loved to dance and enjoyed playing cards (favourites were, crib, bridge, whist, canasta among others).
