1931 ~ 2022


Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Schottner passed away peacefully at the Age Care Valleyview on Friday, August 12, 2022, at the age of 90 years. Liz leaves to cherish her memory: children, Ursula, Harry (Diane) and Karyn (Alex); grandchildren, Cliffe, Mikey, Shane, Troy (Justina), Amber (Jordan); great-grandchildren, Nathan, Lukas, Alicia, Riley, Sydney and MaKenzie as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her first husband, Erhart Schafer as well as her second husband, Louis Schottner. Elizabeth Schottner was born on December 10, 1931, in the Czech Republic. Her family was one of many that immigrated to Canada by boat, a long journey that took many months. On December 13, 1952, Liz met her husband to be, Erhart Schafer. They worked as a team on their farm and at the butcher shop. Liz was a very hard worker, but she also enjoyed her leisure time. She enjoyed the excitement of going out to dances as well as the peaceful serenity of tending to her garden. Talented at many things, one of Liz’s skills that certainly stood out was her ability as a seamstress. She enjoyed 24 wonderful years with Erhart before his passing on August 18, 1978. In 1998, Liz remarried starting a new life’s journey with Louis Schottner. This is also around the time that she accepted a custodial position with the Catholic School Board, continuing to work with them until her eventual retirement. The celebration of Liz’s life will be held at Cook Southland Funeral Chapel, 901 – 13 Street S.W., Medicine Hat on Thursday, August 18, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. with Life Celebrant Gerry Getz officiating. Interment will follow at Hillside Cemetery. (Condolences may be expressed by visiting our website at www.cooksouthland.com) Honoured to serve the family is
