SCHILBERG, Charles (Charlie) Norman
September 16, 1932 - February 16, 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Charlie Schilberg, beloved husband, father and Opa, on February 16, 2021 at the age of 88 years.
He was born in rural Saskatchewan where he spent part of his childhood. Later moving to Prince Rupert, during wartime, his family eventually moved to Edmonton, where he met his wife. As they raised their children, Charlie served as a municipal treasurer in various Alberta and BC communities until finally settling in Squamish BC.
Charlie loved Squamish and took great pride in serving his community as District Treasurer until he retired. In retirement, he was a Senior Citizens’ Counselor with Social Services, volunteering his time to help senior citizens with their financials and taxes. He held various posts on volunteer committees and was a regular donor to the Squamish Hospital Foundation.
Charlie lived a full, healthy and happy life. He was an avid gardener, birdwatcher, woodworker and life-long learner. His passion lay in marquetry and photography. He will be remembered for his devotion to his family and his conscientious contributions to his community.
He was predeceased by his mother Sophie and father, Frederick, his sister Lena, and brothers, Lloyd, John, Robert, Victor and Jerry. He is survived by his wife Rosemarie, his children Krista (Raymond) and Laura, and his two grandchildren, Henry and Charlotte.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Squamish Hospital Foundation (firstname.lastname@example.org – 604-892-6060).
A celebration of Charlie’s life will be held closer to the summer due to COVID 19. He will be greatly missed.
