April 8, 2019

NERENBERG, Ronald Leslie
It is with great sadness that the family of Ron announces his peaceful passing, on Sunday, March 10, 2019 after a long, valiant battle against cancer. He was predeceased by his loving wife Marilyn in 2012 after 45 years of marriage; his parents Emil and Elsie; brother George; brothers Arthur and Horst in infancy; sister Erica Cook; and granddaughter Emelia. Ron is survived by his three children Quinn (Chantal) Nerenberg, Lynn Nerenberg, and Marie (Jason) Hamm; six grandchildren, Kyle, Mikael, Natalie, Eric, Katelyn, and Colton; brother Bruno (Marcia) Nerenberg; sister Irma Culling; sister-in-law Helen Nerenberg; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Ron grew up on a farm in the Janzen and LeRoy area and in 1960 he relocated to the Regina area where he became part owner in the new family farm just east of the city. He worked in the trades and by 1965 had joined the Plumbers and Pipefitter Union Local 179 and worked many years as a journeymen welder. He eventually set himself up with a welding rig and became a contractor. Ron married Marilyn in 1967, they lived together on the family farm just east of Regina where they raised their three children and later retired to the city. In 2015 Ron was diagnosed with cancer. He enjoyed spending time with his family and looked forward to regular family gatherings. The family would like to thank the nursing staff at Balcarres Integrated Care Centre and College Park II for the care they provided. Memorial Service will be held at Christ Lutheran Church, 4825 Dewdney Avenue, Regina, SK, on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, family and friends so wishing, may make a memorial donation in Ron's name to the Regina Humane Society, Box 3143, Regina, SK, S4P 3G7.
