Wilfred Appel of Melville, SK, beloved husband of 65 years of Elsie Appel, entered his eternal rest with family by his side on Sunday, October 20, 2019, at St. Paul Lutheran Home, Melville. He was 89 years of age.


Wilf was born on August 7, 1930, in the Grayson district of Saskatchewan, a son to John and Margaret (nee Hanowski) Appel. He met the love of his life at a dance at Rainbow Hall in Killaly, SK. They were married October 12, 1954, and were blessed with five children.

Wilf was a member of the Knights of Columbus for many years. He enjoyed spending time with friends and family playing cards, fishing and sharing recipes, as well as cooking, baking, bowling and playing music. Wilf owned and operated Appel’s Transport for over 20 years and then became the janitor at St. Henry’s Church until his retirement. His love for people kept him busy drawing many to his large yard sales and flea markets over the years.

Wilf was greeted in heaven by his parents, John and Margaret; daughters Mary, Lena and Margaret; grandson Mitchell Hollinger; sister Alvina Bernhardt; brothers-in-law Tony Exner, Ed Beutel, Adam Beutel and Lavern Graff; and sister-in-law Violet Graff. He leaves behind his wife, Elsie; son Ernie (Laurie) Appel; daughters, Patricia (Peter) Bauldic, Kathy Appel, Debbie (Gilbert) Hollinger and Bernie (Wayne) Nowoselski; 14 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; sister Agnes Exner; brothers Jack (Gloria) Appel and Ray (Marlene) Appell; brother-in-law Zach Bernhardt (Eleanor); and numerous nephews, nieces and friends.


Words of wisdom for the next generations:
“Do the best you can and treat people good and right - never cheat anyone!

“Be active and if there is something to be done, just do it!”

Our deepest, heartfelt condolences to all of you, Wilf's beloved family......Wilf was a very amazing man and will be missed by many!
Gordon and I have very fond memories and one in particular illustrates what a caring helpful person he truly was....
When we moved to Melville from a farm at Aylsham (in the Nipawin area) Gordon was working in Melville, we had discussed what community to make our home, One Thursday Gordon came home and said "We are moving to Melville on Saturday!" With 5 children, 2 deepfreezes full of produce and a basement full of preserves etc. I Panicke!! Gordon said,"No worries the man who is coming to move us will help" And help he did! He helped us pack up everything including the freezers and basement full of preserves, kids and all! As impossible as it seemed, we a;ll arrived in Melville safe and sound with all of our possessions including the cat and dog, on Saturday afternoon! We all loved that man dearly!
