It is with heavy hearts that the family of Remi Berthelet is letting you know that our Dad is once again holding our Mom’s hand, in heaven. He passed away peacefully on Monday, September 26, 2022, at the age of 86 years.

Remi was born April 1, 1936, in Laurier, MB, to Joseph Ovide and Emilie (Assailly) Berthelet. While working for Utah Construction at the site of Saskatchewan’s first potash mine near Esterhazy, he met the love of his life, Marion, who was working at the same site for Schentag Construction. They were married on August 1, 1959, in Whitewood, SK, and together they raised four children. They enjoyed family, camping, golfing, travelling, and Remi especially enjoyed the annual “Berthelet Boys Fish for the Belt”, which will continue on in his memory.
