Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.
The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.
In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

FRANCIS JOSEPH GERMANN
September 1922 - May 2012
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Frank Germann announce that he passed away peacefully at the age of 89 on Friday, May 25th, surrounded by his family. Born in Qu’Appelle, Frank moved to Wilcox to attend Notre Dame College at the age of 13, and stayed for 72 years.
Frank left Notre Dame briefly between the years 1955–1957 to attend St. Francis Xavier University. There he completed his Bachelor of Education and Masters of Arts degrees, and pioneered the St. FX football program. Upon his return, Frank - who affectionately became known as Mr. Notre Dame - held positions as Teacher, Principal, Registrar, Alumni Director and Athletic Coach of hockey, football, baseball and lacrosse teams. Frank was also a vital part of the Saskatchewan Hockey Association in the 1960's and 1970's serving as President, Past President and Referee in Chief. He was instrumental in implementing many of the officiating and coaching programs that still exist today in the Saskatchewan hockey and Hockey Canada guidelines.
He has been recognized on many occasions for his contributions to the community – The Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada, the Canadian Decoration, the Saskatchewan Centennial Medal, the Notre Dame Humanitarian Award and Medal of Honor. As an accomplished athlete, coach and volunteer at Notre Dame and also within the SHA, Frank has been inducted into the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame, Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame and Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame as a builder and a volunteer.
Frank spent the last few years of his life at the Parkland Place Care Home in Melfort, SK. He was predeceased by his wife of 55 years – Marjorie (‘02), and three of their ten children: Vince (‘10), Leo (‘77) and Regina (‘99). He leaves behind Vicki (Dale), Patricia, Barbara, Angela, Anita, Frank Jr. and Jim, 17 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, his sister Frankie Oberhoffner and many nieces and nephews.
