FUDRA
Mrs. Annie Fudra peacefully rejoined her husband in heaven on January 28, 2014 at the age of 89 years old.
Annie was born on May 28, 1924 in Paczin, Hungry. She, her mother, and sister joined her father in Canada in 1934. At an early age she began working in the beet fields in Raymond, which is probably where she gained her resilient spirit. She married the love of her life, Steve Fudra Jr., on January 21, 1943 during one of the biggest snowstorms to hit the area. They celebrated 57 years of marriage before Steve’s passing. In 1961, with their 2 children, Frank and Louise, they moved to Lethbridge. Annie proudly welcomed all into her home in North Lethbridge for 52 years.
Mom was passionate, giving, fiercely independent, and never held anything back. She loved her family with every piece of her heart. Nothing made Mom happier than her family and friends. She showed everyone her love through food. Mom will forever be remembered preparing huge meals of cabbage rolls, fried chicken, perogies, and homemade soup. She could often be found baking homemade bread and wonderful Hungarian pastries. When she wasn’t in the kitchen she was busy tending to her garden.
Mom will be deeply missed by her daughter Louise (Gordon) Balderston, son Frank (Jean) Fudra, grandchildren; Tamara (Tony) Nelson, Raquel (Nick) Polychronopoulos, Nicole Balderston, Jeffrey Balderston, great-grandchildren; Britain and Taylor Nelson, Evan and Noah Polychronopoulos. She will be lovingly remembered by her sister Jean (Lorne) Kropinak, several nieces, nephews and many other family members and cherished friends.
Annie is predeceased by her parents Frank and Julia Sera, an infant son Jack Stephen, and sister Ethel Kasko.
Thank you to everyone for your love and support, many phone calls and visits to Mom. Warmest thanks to Lethbridge Home Care staff who kept Mom in her home for so long and the nursing staff at Edith Cavell who supported her at the end of her journey.
A Prayer Service will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB. on Sunday, February 2nd, 2014 at 7:00 P.M. with Reverend Larry Hankinson officiating.
A Funeral Service will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 1818 5 Ave So., Lethbridge, AB. on Monday, February 3rd, 2014 at 11:00 A.M. with Reverend Hugh Jack officiating.

MACDONALD
Malcolm “Mac” Duncan MacDonald, of Lethbridge, AB passed away at St. Michael’s Palliative Care Unit on January 24, 2014 at the age of 86 years, following a lengthy and hard fought battle with cancer.
Mac is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years, Jane MacDonald; his three children Susan McIntosh (Tom) of Coaldale, Sandra MacDonald (Filip Krotki) of Calgary, Bruce MacDonald of Lethbridge; four grandchildren Andrew MacDonald, Devon MacDonald, Mark McIntosh, Keith McIntosh; great-grandson Matyx MacDonald; siblings Norris MacDonald (Evelyn), Angus MacDonald (Audrey), Nelson MacDonald (Aileen), MJ Samuelson (Ken) and Kathy MacDonald; brother-in-law Bill Owens. He was predeceased by his son Brian MacDonald, older sister Florence Owens, parents Margaret and Neil MacDonald.
Mac, the third child of Neil and Margaret MacDonald, was born in Kimberley, BC on May 23, 1927 but spent most of his childhood in Calgary, AB. Mac attended the University of Alberta where he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriculture. It was during this time while working at a summer job in BC that he met Jane Elizabeth Moore. They were married in Victoria, BC on November 4, 1949.
Upon graduating, Mac began his career as a research scientist for the Canadian Government. He took a leave to pursue a doctorate in Genetics in Agriculture at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Mac returned to his career at the Agriculture Canada Research Centre in Lethbridge in 1956 where he worked in crop science, primarily with wheat and corn. He successfully developed new varieties of corn capable of reaching maturity in Alberta’s shorter growing season. Mac retired in 1988, after 38 years of service, but continued his work with corn for a number of years later.
Mac participated in sports of all types – football (coach and referee), curling, tennis, badminton, hockey and golf. He organized and participated in countless bonspiels and also earned his private pilot license and flew both airplanes and gliders. Mac was also keenly interested in entomology.
Above all, Mac was a loving and generous man who was always willing to help out. He was a humble man who never complained and loved a good laugh.
We lost a great one.
A Celebration of Mac’s life will be held from 5:30 P.M. to 9:30 P.M., with a Ceremony beginning at 6:00 P.M., on Saturday, February 8, 2014 at the VIEWING GALLERY, GALT MUSEUM, 502-1st St. S., Lethbridge, AB.

SCHLOTZER
It is with great sadness that we say good-bye to ANNIE SCHLOTZER, beloved wife of the late Michael Schlotzer. Our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away peacefully at the age of 89 years surrounded by her family on Sunday, January 26th 2014 at St. Therese Villa.
She will be lovingly remembered by her children Erika (Pete) Bosters and Annemarie (Ed) Thiessen, her grandchildren Kristopher (Leanna) Bosters, Daniel (Heather) Bosters, James and Evan Thiessen and two great grandsons Joshua and Zachary Bosters.
She is also survived by her niece and nephews, Johann (Rosi) Kremenik, Elizabeth (Peter) Kiefer, George Stimatz, Frank Freihaut and their families.
She was predeceased by her husband Michael, her parents Anton and Katharina Magosch, her sisters Eva Kremenik and Katharina Schunk , her niece Kathy Freihaut and stillborn twin granddaughters.
Annie was born on July 11, 1924 in Croatia, the youngest of three daughters. In 1944 her family moved to Austria where she married Michael Schlotzer in 1950 and in May of 1953 they immigrated to Canada.
Mom was a very gifted seamstress and worked at St. Michael’s hospital for many years sewing for the Sisters of St. Martha and the student nursing program. She also used her talents sewing draperies at Gast’s/Designer’s Furniture Gallery. She also spent many hours sewing treasured clothing and in her retirement quilted and crocheted beautiful projects for her family.
Gardening was one of her passions and the treasures of her harvest found their way into her cooking and our fridges. This love of cooking and baking led to the sharing of secret family recipes that have stood the tests of time. She also loved giving one-on-one cooking and baking lessons to the four hungry grandsons who were the greatest joy of her life.
Mom was a woman of great faith and enjoyed singing in the St. Basil’s Church choir. She took pride in being a lifetime member of the Catholic Women’s League.
