It is with great sadness we announce Jake Boldt went to be with his Savior on April 5, 2018. Jake was born April 12, 1925 to Isaac and Anna (Dick) in Alexander Russia and immigrated to Canada in 1926. On June 21, 1947 he married the love of his life, Annie Bergen. They farmed at Glenbush, SK and moved to Saskatoon in 1956. Together they were an example of a loving and happy marriage. Jake was a man of courage. He demonstrated that when he took the risk of moving his entire family from the farm into Saskatoon. At that time there was considerable pressure for him to maintain the status quo. Jake was a person of integrity and he taught his family this value and what it meant to do an honest day’s work. He paid the debts accumulated from the farm. It was not easy but he modelled being a man of his word. Jake loved Jesus. Among other things, he and mom faithfully greeted at his church for years and in the process became a surrogate grandpa to many of the kids who they greeted each week. Jake was a very social person. He loved people, took an interest in their lives, and made many friends in the Saskatoon business community. Family was important to Jake and Annie. We all knew the first phone call we would receive on our birthday or anniversary would be from mom and dad, grandma and grandpa. Our greeting cards always included a note of encouragement and assurance of their prayers for us. He is lovingly remembered by his four children: Vi (Gord) Klassen [Nancy, Rachel, Deanne] and sons Wes (Mary) [Curtis, Kevin]; Will (Carol) [Jeff, Derek, Ryan]; Eldon (Bev) [Jacee, Denver]; 17 great-grandchildren; his brothers Werner (Martha); Rudy (Lydia) and sister Helga Krahn, sister-in-law Doris, many nieces, nephews and friends. He is predeceased by his wife Annie; his parents; brothers Abe and Walter and one brother-in-law. The Funeral Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 21 at Circle Drive Alliance Church (3035 Preston Ave. S.) in Saskatoon. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Luther Care Communities (1212 Osler St, Saskatoon, SK S7N 0T9).
