Obituary

Obituary for Orpha Ileen Resmer (Schruder)

Peacefully in the Pembroke Regional Hospital, at the age of 96. Daughter of the late Robert & Lydia Schruder. Orpha (Schruder) beloved wife of the late Lorne Resmer. Dear mother of Marilyn (Wolfgang Bruemmerstedt), Merrill (Liz) Resmer and Lorraine (Carl Ott). Grandmother to Pamela, Michael, Jeremy, Sarah, Kelly, Laura and Jennifer. Great-grandmother to Rachel, Hannah, Mason, Violet, Serena and Myles. Orpha is survived by her brothers Kenneth (late Luella) and Emmery (Sharon) as well as her sister-in-law Ina. She was predeceased by her siblings Ruth, Elby and Ellard.

Orpha was born and grew up in the Augsburg – Wilber Lake area. She went to school in Augsburg and worked in Ruby at the general store in her teen years, where she met her husband Lorne Resmer.
After living in Eganville for some years, they moved to Kitchener in 1966 where she worked at the YMCA and then later on at the KW Hospital, in the dietary food department.
In 1986 they moved back to Eganville and eventually built a new home on Wellington Street in 1989.
After Lorne’s passing she remained in the home they had built until 2016 when she moved into Fairfields.
Orpha dearly loved her family and her church. She was a very active member in the choir at Salem Evangelical Missionary Church in Augsburg for years.
Her family though was her greatest joy and just being together would always make her ever so happy. The last few years though, her body was slowly deteriorating and as time went on she was confined to her room at Fairfields. She will always be remembered for her very caring and loving ways, always praying for her family to be safe and well.

Special thanks to the doctors and nurses on the 3rd floor of the Pembroke Regional Hospital who gave special care to Orpha in her last hours, as well as to the staff, nurses and administration at Fairfields, who also cared for Orpha, especially during the last few weeks and trying times of Covid-19.

Friends and family may call at Zohr Family Funeral Home, Eganville Sunday from 2-4 & 7-9pm. A private family funeral will be held at Salem Evangelical Missionary Church, Augsburg on Monday November 23, 2020, followed by interment at Salem Evangelical Missionary Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or Salem Evangelical Missionary Church. Tributes, condolences and donations can be made online at www.zohrfuneralhome.com
