BEAULIEU (MELTING TALLOW) 
With heart breaking sadness and shock that we announce the passing of our Dear mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, great aunt, niece, and cousin LEANNE TERRI BEAULIEU (nee MELTING TALLOW) on May 28th, 2013 at the age of 43 years.. 
Leanne and her twin brother Leon were born to Mildred and (late) Clarence Melting Tallow on September 19, 1969, a wonderful surprise to siblings Jeff, Debbie, Sonny, Andrew (Cindy), Barry, and Todd. Leanne and Lee grew up in a huge loving family as everyone pitched in for diaper changes and all. The twins attended elementary and Jr. High school in Cardston; and Leanne graduated from Kainai High in 1988. Throughout her Jr. & Sr. High school Leanne excelled in sports and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her childhood friends and family. After graduating grade 12, Leanne was hired on to work as an Assistant Accountant at the Kainai Community Corrections. With this, it inspired her to further her skills in accounting, however,she had to hold off for a couple of years as she and her high school sweetheart welcomed their son, Byron. Byron was the love of her life, and as her relationship ended, she continued raising her son as a single parent, of course, with the help of her mother and step-dad John Tallow. In 1994, she moved to Edmonton to attend NAIT, specializing in the Accounting Program. After graduating in 1996, she immediately found employment at an elementary school in Edmonton. During then she met her future husband, Bruce Beaulieu and together they welcomed twins Taylor Jade and Tasha Jewel. They resided in Edmonton until 1999, they moved to Cardston, to be closer to home. Then with her expertise in Accounting she gained employment with the Kainai Board of Education in 2000. In 2003, she was devastated when her marriage ended – this changed her life drastically and she couldn’t move on as “her marriage vows” were so sacred and were supposed to be forever! She missed Bruce so much that nothing mattered. She prayed, using her faith in Jesus Christ that her family would reunite, she moved to St. Catherines to attend the Celebration Bible College for a year to help give her hope and strength to repair her marriage, but unfortunately it didn’t and eventually got sick and couldn’t take care of herself. She attended Kapowan Treatment Center in 2011 and met her special friend Jack Chalifeaux. She resided in Grouard, Alberta, until March of this year as her first grandchild, Michael Merlin, was born to Tasha and Jeremy Bevans; she wanted to be there for her daughter. 
Leanne had a huge extended family besides her Mom, children, son-in-law, grandchild, siblings, and adopted sister Sheryl Day Chief. She was a niece to aunts Clara (Mike) Sigurdur, Sylvia (late Punch) Tailfeathers, Rosanne Many Fingers, and Marie (Don) Shade. Uncles: Les Tallow, Herbert (Myrna) ManyFingers, and Burton (Virna) Many Fingers. Numerous nieces and nephews; lots of cousins and very close friends especially Annette & Rennie Soup. She was predeceased by her Dad, Clarence, her sister Karen, brother Todd, nephew Ramsey,her dog Cinnamon, her maternal grandparents Albert and Margaret (Soop) Many Fingers and her paternal grandparents Paul and Jenny (Healy) Melting Tallow. Her uncle and aunt Gordon and Loretta Many Fingers and aunt Mary Rose. Her uncles Albert Many Fingers Jr. and Evans Melting Tallow. Her cousins, Kimberly, Lacey, Brielle, Sheldon, Sharla, Tweedy, Lyndsey, & Jessica Many Fingers, and William Morin.

MORWEN SMITH
(NEE JENKINS)
September 21, 1928 – May 30, 2013
Morrie passed away peacefully at the age of 84 in the early morning of May 30th at Coaldale Health Centre where she resided.
She was predeceased by her loving husband of 44 years, S. K. (Ken) Smith (June 18, 1995). Our Mom and Nana will be missed and lovingly remembered by her two daughters, Jennifer Smith (Vaughn Foster) of Edmonton and Sian Townsend; grandchildren Shandra Townsend (Matt Gregory) and Cole Townsend (Sara Champagne) of Lethbridge, and the newest editions to her legacy – great grandchildren London Mae Gregory and Greyson Smith Townsend. Morrie‘s sisters Gwyneth Hughes and Megan Rees (pre-deceased) and nieces and nephews in Great Britain always held a special place in her heart.
Mom was born September 21, 1928 in Tylorstown, Rhondda Valley, South Wales and married the love of her life, Ken in 1951. In 1958 their adventurous spirit carried the two teachers and their girls from Great Britain to the village of Manyberries in the “County of 40 Mile”. They embraced their adopted land through the warm generous spirit of the people within the communities who became lifelong friends. They moved from Manyberries School to teach in Medicine Hat, Bow Island and Lethbridge. Teaching was mom’s passion. She was well respected by her colleagues and was instrumental in motivating countless young lives throughout her career. 
Mom and Dad loved nature, picnics, good humour and spending time with family and friends but mostly they enjoyed being with each other. Music and singing were important to Mom in all its forms whether it was singing in United Church and community choirs, directing school choirs in festivals throughout her life or whistling. Her claim to fame was singing duets with Richard Burton’s wife in Wales.
Mom was Morwena Regina in our Father’s eyes, a wonderful role model, friend, confidante and mentor to us. Forever in our hearts Mom……enjoy your celebration with Dad….. We love you. 
Our family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Coaldale Health Centre, Mom’s special caregiver Rita Gensorek and Dr. Luykenaar for the outstanding care of our mother over the past four years. Laughter and hugs were in abundance. We could never have asked for more!
A Memorial Service will be held at SOUTHMINISTER UNITED CHURCH – 1100 4th Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 1:00 P.M. with Pastor Ruth Schilk officiating.
In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations could be made directly to any youth support organization.

The Funeral Service will be held at Southland Funeral Chapel, 5006 – 48
Avenue, Taber on Saturday, June 8, 2013 at 11:00 A.M. Burial to follow at

Besides his devoted companion, Grace Marko, John is survived by his
daughter Sherry (Wayne) Schmirler of Calgary and his son Robert (Diana)
Moyor of Kelowna; twelve grandchildren, thirteen great grandchildren and one
great great grandchild. He is also survived by his sister Irene James of
Calgary and by numerous  nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was predeceased by his youngest son, Jimmy Moyor, in 1987.
John was born April 2, 1921 in Megyaszo, Hungary. At the age of six, he
immigrated to Canada with family. They settled in Taber which he has called
home ever since and consequently, many wonderful friendships have been
developed over the years. Morning coffee was a normal routine with his
buddies!
After serving in WWII, John was a loyal Royal Canadian Legion member and
officer. He also served on various other committees including the Air Cadet
League, Taber Golf Club, Taber Museum Society and with the Clearview Lodge.
As with many of the youth in Taber, John worked at the canning factory and
part time with the Alberta Liquor Control Board. He eventually became the
manager of the ALCB, retiring in 1981 after thirty two years.
Hunting, fishing, gardening and playing his guitar were his passions until
the Taber Golf Club opened. Then it was golf, golf and more golf! His yearly
trips to Mexico and the United States were also a highlight. Many exciting
stories were told of his trip to China to visit Sherry and Wayne.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in John’s name may be made
directly to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #20, 5205 – 48 Avenue, Taber,
Alberta T1G 1S8.
