Remembering our Rural Ministry Heritage -
Memorial to Dr. R.F. (Bob) and Janet Schnell
Dr. R.F. (Bob) Schnell was Professor of Old Testament and Principal of St. Andrew’s College from 1943 – 1978. The lives of Bob and Janet Schnell were rooted in rural Saskatchewan. They are remembered for the way they shared with everyone a love for people, a love of music, and a tender, thoughtful and gracious quality of spirit. Students and colleagues and members of church and (Saskatoon) community found their lives enriched by his scholarship and their deep sense of ministry.
