NAAEOWAAPIAAKII (HOLY WOMAN)
Annie Helen Red Crow – Blood, age 52, of the Blood Reserve passed away peacefully at her home in Lethbridge, AB on Saturday, August 31, 2013. Annie leaves behind her beloved husband, Constable Michael Blood of the Blood Tribe Police Services and her children whom she loved with all her heart, Marc Peter and Lucinda Marie Red Crow. Also her special pets, cat Cederic and her dog Spikey which she considered as her “babies.”
Annie was the youngest daughter (three older sisters and two brothers) born to the late Andrew Allred and Dinah Red Crow of the Blood Reserve. She attended secondary and high schools in Lethbridge. Annie graduated with an Office Assistant diploma from Lethbridge Community College. Annie married her husband in November 1981 at the St. Catherine’s Catholic Church in Standoff, AB.
Annie’s passions were her family, her animals, her music and friends. She loved and was extremely proud of her husband and children, spending most of her time with them. She was friendly, outgoing, and had an infectious laugh which warmed the hearts of her family and friends, young and old. Annie easily bonded with the youth and developed strong friendships. She touched the minds and hearts of her family and friends by making them feel special and loved. In her spare time, Annie enjoyed going to the Casino to visit with friends and play a few rounds. Annie loved metal rock music and attended many concerts with her children. She was a strong Calgary Flames fan and attended many hockey games in Calgary.
Annie was employed at a number of places, with her most recent position with the Blood Tribe Housing Department as a receptionist. As a front-line worker, Annie showed exceptional service by ensuring messages were relayed to appropriate personnel and that the public needs were addressed. She was sociable and enjoyed sharing funny stories and laughs with the public while they waited for their appointments. She was missed terribly when Annie went on disability leave and many had inquired when she was returning to her job.
Annie was a firm believer of the Traditional Catholic (Vatican 1) doctrine and teachings. Her family travelled to Spokane to visit the St. Michael’s Parish and witness the Traditional Catholic Masses.
Besides her loving husband and children, Annie is survived by her siblings: Jacqueline Red Crow, of Cardston; Delphine (John) Pipestem Sr. of the Tsuu T’ina Nation near Calgary, Alvin (Sheila) Red Crow of the Blood Reserve and Norbert (Mandy) Red Crow Sr. of Browning, Montana, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and their families.

Her in-laws: Wilfred (Martina) Blood, Charles (Rhonda) Blood, Dewey (Carolyn) Blood, Blaine Blood, JoAnne (Erik) Lemieux, Manual Blood, Cynthia Blood (Hiram Big Swan) and Yolanda (Robert) Eagle Tail Feathers. Also aunts and uncles, cousins, and friends, too numerous to mention.
Annie was predeceased by her parents Andrew Allred and Dinah Red Crow, her sister, Melva Lois Red Crow, her niece, Shannon Red Crow and nephew Andrew Red Crow as well as great nephews Okan and Boy Pipestem. As well as her father-in-law Alfred Blood and sister-in-law, Beverly Little Light and many other relatives.

ERICKSON
It is with full hearts that we announce the passing of HELEN DORIS ERICKSON of Lethbridge on September 4, 2013 of causes incident to age. She was in her 89th year at the time of her death.
Doris is survived by her husband Reed, with whom she recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary; her sister, Phyllis Krucik; four children and their spouses, Brian & Karen Erickson, Jan & Mark Mason, Val & Keith Walker and Ross & Lisa Erickson; 14 grandchildren; and 21 great grandchildren, as well as numerous other extended family.
She was born in 1925 to Eva & Leonard Coombe in a small log home on the family homestead near Whitney Lake in northeastern Alberta, leaving home after completing 8th grade so she could complete high school in Heinsberg, then Elkpoint and finally St. Paul, Alberta. She was trained as a Registered Nurse at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton, and recruited after graduation in 1947 to work as an RN in Raymond at the then Raymond General Hospital. It was in Raymond where she first met her husband-to-be, marrying in 1948. She and her new family settled in Lethbridge in 1952 when Reed began teaching for the Lethbridge School District.
Doris is known for her love of and pride in her immediate and extended family. She was always a strength, support and real partner to her husband and will be deeply missed while they are apart. As a mother she was involved in every activity and adventure of each of her four active children and found it particularly rewarding to continue that role with them and her grandchildren as that was possible. All of them knew of her high expectations and enjoyed the support, warmth and love that accompanied every good effort, activity and endeavor.
She was an individual who understood what it was to work, but also how to relax and enjoy. She had a wonderful sense of humor, even when the joke was on her.
Although not affiliated with formal religion as a young person, Doris was well acquainted with the Bible and the teachings of Jesus Christ and, after marrying Reed, became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Over her lifetime she continued in active membership, serving in numerous responsible positions and assignments in the Church including, most recently, service with Reed of a full-time mission at the Manila Philippines Temple and then, subsequently, at the Cardston Alberta Temple.
Before her passing, she had completed a comprehensive oral and written personal history for her family’s enjoyment and education. On reviewing that history it seems remarkable that someone who began life with so little has left it having amounted to so much to so many.
Friends may meet with the family on Sunday, September 8, 2013 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at CHRISTENSEN SALMON GENERATIONS FUNERAL HOME, 703 – 13 Street North and again on Monday, September 9, 2013 from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. prior to the service at the church.
The Funeral Service will be held on Monday, September 9, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, LETHBRIDGE ALBERTA STAKE CENTRE, 2410 – 28 Street South with Bishop Aaron Bridge officiating.
Interment to follow in the Temple Hill Cemetery, Raymond.

In loving memory
Rosemarie Theresa Erdos
(1930-2013)
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Rosemarie Erdos, beloved wife of Vincent Erdos of Hillcrest Mines, Alberta. Rosemarie was called to be with the Lord on September 3, 2013 while receiving care and kindness at the Chinook Regional Hospital in Lethbridge. She was 83 years of age.
Rosemarie was born on May 10, 1930 in New Dayton, Alberta to Clarence & Clara Kaupp. One of eleven children, Rosemarie was raised with a great appreciation for her family, friends, faith and to cherish what she had rather than want for what she had not. She was a kind and gentle young lady who was meticulous and caring; she captured the heart of a dashing young gentleman, Vincent Erdos, and they pledged their love in holy matrimony on April 2, 1959. They were further blessed with four children and eight grandchildren.
Rosemarie had many talents including sewing, creating stained glass art pieces and providing a wonderful home for her family. She enjoyed her time at the family’s campgrounds and fishing in the pond. She was a proud member of the Catholic Women’s League and Quad Squad and volunteered countless hours to community events. Rosemarie was devoted to her husband, adored her children, cherished her grandchildren, and was a loyal friend to so many. May she find salvation in the peace of Christ and may her memory continue to bless us with friendship and love.
Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life include her loving husband, Vincent Erdos; her children, Brian (Debbie) Erdos of Coaldale, Wayne Erdos of Lethbridge, Donald Erdos of Fort Saskatchewan and Patricia Livingstone of Kelowna; her grandchildren, Brandon, Tara, Christina, Corey, Bradley, Brittany, Scott and Matthew; her brothers, August (Ann) Kaupp of Raymond, Victor (Lavern) Kaupp of Lethbridge, Lawrence (Dian) Kaupp of Lethbridge; her sisters, Mary Biggers of Lethbridge, Mildred Shutty of Vernon and Imma Fowler of Vernon; and her numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
She was predeceased by her father, Clarence Kaupp; her mother, Clara Kaupp (nee: Thielen); her siblings, Clemence (Francis) Kaupp, Edmund (Cam) Kaupp, Anna (Louis) Pittman and Ruth Shaw; and her brothers-in-law, Boyd Biggers and Joe Shutty.
The Prayer Service will be held on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 at 7:00 pm at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church in Blairmore, AB with Rev. Renso Castellarin officiating.
