Earl Christian Mund, beloved father of three daughters, passed away July 6th at the Langenburg Centennial Care Home at the age of 83 years.
He was born on April 13th, 1937 at the family farmhouse Northwest of Langenburg to Christian and Barbara (nee Geres) Mund. He was baptized and confirmed at St Paul’s Lutheran Church. At the young age of four, his mother passed away, prompting Grandpa and Grandma Mund to assist Earl’s Dad, Christian, with raising Earl and his sister, Mildred. Earl attended Thingvalla School until he was 15 years old.
At five years old, Earl’s love of horses blossomed. Over the years, he was involved with the 4-H Horse club, showed competitively with his family at local and Arabian horse shows, judged local horse shows, and instructed enthusiastic riders. In his later years, he enjoyed participating in parades with his family and friends.
Earl met Joan Mattice at the Langenburg Hospital when he had a car accident in March 1965. They were married on June 11th, 1966 at Swift Current, Saskatchewan.
Earl dedicated many years to the St. Paul Lutheran church, including participating on the Church council and singing with Gospel Vision. When Earl retired from grain and cattle farming, he continued to enjoy gardening, his dog Dixie, the barn cats and his horses.
He is predeceased by his wife Joan; he is survived by daughter Shauna Lee Mund (Bill Pottorff); daughter Lareen Dawn Mund Polansky (Ken Polansky Jr), daughter Denyse Marcia Mund (Geoff Pascoe). granddaughter Ruby Christian Lareen Polansky (Lareen and Ken Polansky Jr); sister Mildred Nerbas.
The beautiful graveyard funeral service was held at St. Paul’s cemetery outside Langenburg, Sask on July 9th with Pastor Daphne Bender officiating.

Throughout the years, Earl’s friends, neighbours and family supported him, for which he was truly grateful. He lived a blessed life on the farm and his memory will be cherished.
