Obituary for Donald Warner Oberson

Donald Warner Oberson
Warner passed away peacefully with his wife at his side in the early morning of September 16, 2017.
Warner was a kind, generous and hardworking man. He always enjoyed telling jokes, and making everyone around him smile. He was loved by many.
Born in Candiac, Saskatchewan to Arnold and Christina Oberson. He grew up in Griffin and Kendal, Sask. Warner joined the Navy in 1943 and served in the Naval Intelligence Branch as telegraphist (SO), R.C.N. After being posted in Dartmouth and Gaspe, he served on H.M.C.S. Border Cities on the North Atlantic Run. In 1945 he was awarded a Mention in Dispatch for aiding in the fixing of positions of several U-Boats. After discharge, he hired on to the CN Railway. He worked in many locations, finally arriving in Dundurn, Sask, where he met wife, Audrey Drennan. They were married on June 10, 1950. In 1956, Warner and his family moved to Pemberton, BC where they raised their three children and he worked for the PGE as a station operator, advancing to Terminal Supervisor.
In Pemberton, he was a well-respected and active community member being involved in leading Boy Scout’s, 4-H club and served on the boards of the Credit Union, the Legion and the Board of Variance. He also helped to establish the Pemberton North Improvement District. Aside from working for the railway, he also had a successful hobby farm in Pemberton and eventually purchased his dream property in Devine in 1975.There he built a beautiful home, employing local tradesman and building a successful, renowned orchard.
He was predeceased by an infant son, his parents, Arnold and Christina Oberson, his sisters, Dororthy (Ted) Wheeler and Kathleen (Gordon) Wright and nieces, nephews and close friends. He will be profoundly missed and is survived by his wife, Audrey; sons, Dean (Karen Howe) and Drew (Corinne) and daughter, Jan (Barry Peterson) and grandchildren, Braden, Aaron, Austin Oberson and Aja and Riley Peterson. He is also survived by his sisters Edith, Jeanie and his brother, Bruce and their families.

There will be a gathering to remember and celebrate Warner’s life at St. David’s United Church on September 26th at 3:00pm followed by a reception at the Pemberton Legion.

The family would like to express heartfelt appreciation for all the loving support and care that Warner and Audrey received at their home, in the hospital, at Hilltop House and through the Hospice Society.
