Regina was born on December 10th, 1923 to Edmund and Rose Sehn at Fox Valley. She married John Fuchs on November 11th, 1941 at Leader, Saskatchewan where she resided until John’s death on December 10th, 1981 when a few years later she moved to Medicine Hat to be closer to her daughter. Regina was a “Jack of All Crafts” from sewing, ceramics, tatting, porcelain doll making, quilting and the list goes on. She loved going for breakfast every Saturday morning with her family and having coffee with her friends at fast food places. Mom was the best cabbage roll maker and strudels were her trademark and were enjoyed by her family and their friends. She was strong in her faith and lived by that standard every day. Mom was the best mom, gramma and great gramma ever. She was noted for her love of jewelry and bling, so we ask if you could wear some “bling” to her funeral.

    My heartfelt sympathy to the family of Regina Fuchs. I had the pleasure of selling Avon to your Mother/grandmother for many years and enjoyed her company immensely! She always talked about her family and we had such great visits. She was always sewing or working on some kind of craft and loved doing it. She was a wonderful woman and will be missed. My sincere condolences.
