Blane Kevin Schrempp (Beanie) of Pincher Creek passed away January 16, 2019, at the age of 65.
Blane was predeceased by his father, Wilfred; mother, Virginia (nee Janostak); sister Mary-Ellen; and brother Gary. Blane is survived by his niece, Sandra Schrempp; her son, Corben Funnell; and numerous cousins in Canada and the United States.
Blane is remembered as a very kind and quiet family-oriented man who loved sports, animals, politics, and his faith. Blane had a special bond with his great-nephew, Corben, and his cousin, Ron Bonertz (Bing). Corben always enjoyed visiting with Blane and especially enjoyed watching sports with him. Bing has very fond memories of growing up with Blane, Gary, and Mary Ellen.
Blane will be cremated, and a memorial service, to be held at St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church, will be announced at a later date. People wishing to express their condolences or make donations in his memory are encouraged to arrange mass cards for Blane or donate to the Lung Association, Alberta. P.O.
