We Remember

SCHUR, Oscar

December 9, 1928 — February 19, 2022

Oscar Schur, 93, passed away while surrounded by family, on February 19, 2022, due to complications with Covid-19.

Born in Berestovets, Wolynian, Oscar immigrated to Canada in 1948 and settled in Winnipeg, MB. Oscar met the love of his life, Elsie, they married and he worked very hard as a plasterer to support his family. In 1967, they moved to Kelowna, BC to establish new roots.

Many weekends were spent dancing and singing and playing cards with friends at the German Club. Oscar loved to go fishing and hunting in his early years of retirement. And, many winters were spent with Elsie in Yuma, AZ and Mexico, with the occasional trip to see their daughter Angela in Sydney, Australia.

Oscar is survived by his wife of 66 years, Elsie; his children Angela Day (John) and Ron Schur (Diane); and his grandchildren Jennifer Day (Darren), Dillon Schur, and Kaitlyn Schur (Matt); he will also be missed by his sister Lydia Kehler of Winnipeg, MB. He was predeceased by his parents Karl and Natalie. His honourable, friendly, and caring ways will be sorely missed.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
