DOT MEN “JACK” LEE
1924 ~ 2014
Mr. Dot Men “Jack” Lee of Lethbridge, beloved husband of Helen Lee, passed away on Thursday, January 16,
2014 at the age of 89 years.
Jack was born on March 31, 1924. At the age of 4, Jack moved to China for Chinese education and returned
to Canada at age 15 to work in the family dry cleaning business. When Jack turned 18, he enlisted into
the Canadian army; after basic training he was sent to England. From there he was sent to Europe where he
joined up with the South Saskatchewan Regiment; that took him through Belgium, Holland, and Germany.
After the war, Jack came home and did guard duty at the POW camp in Lethbridge for 6 months. Jack then
met Helen and they were married on January 30, 1949 and they had 3 sons. Jack then had a wonderful
opportunity to do skin diving in Cozumel, Micronesia, Hong Kong, and places too numerous to mention.
Jack was an avid sportsman- he played racquetball, tennis, ping-pong, golf, weight-lifting, etc. For many
years he volunteered at the Senior Centre doing different things and also was a Tai Chi instructor. In
1951, he joined the Militia (engineers), then over to the artillery shortly after. He then began teaching
young soldiers and he gained the rank of WOI (RSM) when he retired. In 1979, he was called out of
retirement and was posted to camp Shilo, Brandon, MB. for a few months in the summer. That was his last
posting and then he was “officially” retired. Jack was a member of the Chinese Cultural Society as well
as the K-Ying Po. He was always busy and loved his garden flowers, grapes and especially his Goji plants
and his every day activity in the summer was golfing for the past 30 years.
He achieved his greatest wish which was to attend his granddaughter’s wedding this past November in
Toronto. We thank God for the blessing.
Besides his loving wife Helen, Jack is survived by his sons Ricky (Floss) of Calgary, Terry Lee of
Lethbridge and Corey Lee of Sherwood Park; grandchildren Nicole (Patrick) Moyer of Toronto, Christie
(Jeremy) Froese of Winnipeg, Lucas Lee and Aiden Lee both of Sherwood Park; great- grandchildren Jack
Froese and Peter Froese of Winnipeg; sister Margaret Mah of Red Deer; brother Harvey (Ruth) Lee of
Lethbridge; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and their families.
Jack was predeceased by his parents Duck Lee and Yet Soon; his brother Jim and sisters Jean and Betty.
A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00am on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW
CHAPEL, 610 4th Street South, Lethbridge with Mr. John Chan officiating.
Flowers are gratefully declined. Those who wish, memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke
Foundation, Box 2211 Lethbridge, AB T1J 4K7 or the Cancer Research Society, 305 200 Isabella Street,

SKRETTING
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beautiful mother, grandmother and great
grandmother Mary Skretting. She passed away peacefully at the age of 95, on Monday, January 13, 2014 at
St. Michael’s Palliative Care Centre. She will be lovingly remembered by her children; Ken (Josie)
Skretting of Cranbrook, B.C., Jean (Jim) Fritz of Fraser Lake, B.C., Allan (Patti) Skretting of
Lethbridge, A.B., Stan (Linda) Skretting of Duncan, B.C. and son-in-law Ken Nyhoff of Lethbridge, A.B.,
13 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mary was predeceased by her loving husband Hans of 57 years, her parents Peter and Elizabeth Dyck, her
daughter Linda Nyhoff, sisters Helen Schmitz and Tina Gygie and her two brothers, Aaron and Peter Dyck.
Mary was born in Morris, Saskatchewan on March 16, 1918. At an early age, her family moved to Herbert,
Saskatchewan where she attended school. Mary met Hans while visiting her sister in Barons and after they
were married, they worked on the farm in Circle Hill, Alberta. After a few years of farming, they moved
to Vancouver Island but because Mary was home sick, they moved back to Alberta.
Mary worked as a cook and baker in Claresholm and Woolworth’s in Lethbridge, where she made lots of
lasting friendships. She loved reading a good book, camping with family and friends, doing jigsaw puzzles
and especially word search puzzles. She enjoyed her weekly coffee visits with her friends at Pop’s Pub
and meeting friends at the Army and Navy. Mary loved to bake and we will miss her homemade bread and
especially her Saskatoon pies. Mom was fortunate to live in her own home right up to one month of her
passing.
A special thanks to the staff of St. Michael’s Palliative Centre for the wonderful care they gave Mary
and to The Lethbridge Society for Meals On Wheels who provided Mary with a meal three times a week. She
looked forward to the volunteer’s visit each time.
A Private Family Service was held at McKILLOP UNITED CHURCH on Saturday, January 18, 2014 to celebrate
her life.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Mary’s name to St. Michael’s Palliative Care Centre, 1400 –

Marie Ficek
1958 – 2014
It is with deep sadness that we announce that Phyllis Marie Ficek (nee Turk), beloved wife of Ron Ficek, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones in Taber on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at the age of 55 years, after a brief battle with cancer.
Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers at Southland Funeral Chapel, 5006 – 48 Avenue, Taber on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at 7:00 P.M.
The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Augustine¹s Catholic Church, 5009 – 48 Avenue, Taber on Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 11:00 A.M. with Reverend Roque Pereira, Celebrant. Burial to follow at the Taber Memorial Garden. Condolences may be forwarded by visiting our website at http://www.southlandfuneral.com.
Besides her loving husband Ron, she was the proud mother of Raymond Ficek of Taber and Michelle (Doug) Cranston of Taber; a devoted and loving grandmother to six grandchildren Chancelor, Kaya, Brooke and Chase Ficek, Jaiden and Taryn Cranston. She will also be missed my many extended family members and friends.
Marie and Ron moved to Taber in 1976 where together they raised their two children. The love for her family is what defined Marie, becoming the essence of her being. Throughout her lifetime, she exemplified the utmost devotion to her family which was never ending. Marie was the biggest fan at sporting events and could be found driving to and from activities. She always kept the door open for her children, grandchildren and friends who know they were always welcome to drop in unannounced. The front steps of their home was most often where they could all be found, enjoying their time together. Along with her dedication to family, Marie was a faithful long term employee at Frito-Lay. Her work ³family² became a meaningful extension to her life and often she would arrive an hour before her shift started, to visit and enjoy the company of her co-workers. From text messages, phone calls, face times, to snuggles on the couch, ³Now I lay me down to sleep² and giggles, she was always there. A listening ear, advice offered now and then and sentences ending with ³…and that². Marie was the matriarch, a role model, best friend and an unwavering support to so many. When the time came for Marie to be in the hospital, she continued to develop meaningful relationships with the doctors and nursing staff. Of particular importance to her was Dr. Jeff Hughes. Marie enjoyed his quick wit and energy, his never ending willingness to help and his caring nature that went above and beyond the call of duty.
