It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of dad and grandpa on April 15, 2019, at the age of 93.
Stanley was born January 20, 1926 in Camper, MB. He is survived by his wife Shirl, his sister Hilda, and his loving family; daughter Brenda (Jim), and sons, Glenn (Linda), Ben (Victoria), Lenard (Susan), Keith (Patricia) and Raymond (Jennifer). He is fondly remembered by his grandchildren, Chelsea (Quinn), Jennifer (Kevin), Samantha (Dale), Antonia (Mike), Mihali (Sophie), Vasilis (Kaitie), Andrea (Justin), Cyrena, Nicole (Ryan), Ashley (Christopher), Mallory (Tiffinie), Mason (Mackenzie), Marcus, and nine great-grandchildren. Stanley is predeceased by five brothers and four sisters.
Stan and Shirl moved to Argyle from Ashern in 1999 and adopted the community as their retirement home for the past 19 years. Dad was talented in many trades and there was nothing he couldn't fix. He had an amazing green thumb and his gardens always flourished. He loved spending time outdoors, going for coffee at Ben's store, or taking a ride to Winnipeg to help pick up store supplies.
Dad loved his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, but most of all he cherished his best friend and wife for the last 65 years, Shirl.
A special thanks to Steve Garland for all of his help and friendship over the years, the community of Argyle, and a heartfelt thank-you to the doctors and nurses of the Stonewall & District Health Centre for comforting Dad in his final days.
Cremation has taken place, with a private Celebration of Life for the family to follow.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I am very sorry to hear of the loss of Mr Schindle. It has been awhile since I have seen him. I remember him as a stoic, proud man. He was devoted to his family and he was dutiful in that pursuit. My condolences go to his family. His wife Shirley whom he was devoted to, may the memories of Stan, who was a good man, sustain you at this time. Shirley you have a good family who will help you envision that. Ben and his family my condolences to you for your loss. The best way to remember a loved one is to emulate the way they lived their life. Devotion to family, a strong will to do the right thing and the unpresumptuous way he interacted with others. He made me feel I was talking to a fatherly figure. May Stan rest in peace knowing he did the right thing in his life. This is what I remember of Mr. Schindle. May he rest in peace. - Posted by: Terry Batten (Friend from Edmonton) on: May 11, 2019

  • Uncle Stanley was an uncle we looked up to. I was only ten years old when we left the farm but I still have memories of playing with Brenda and Glen. It was good to reunite at the Schindle Family reuion in 2005 and recently with Glen and Linda and Len and Susan and their daughters at Glen's cottage last year. Aunty Shirley, wishing you comfort and lots of future laughs with your great grand-children. May this branch of the Schindle family continue to have long lives and good health and lots of fun together. - Posted by: Valerie Burch (Cousin) on: May 09, 2019

  • I'm sorry to hear the loss of Mr. Schindle. Camper was a close knit community back in the 20's through 50's. It is sad to see the children of all the pioneers now passing away. My deep condolences. - Posted by: Robin Drylick (Camper, MB) on: Apr 22, 2019
