ANDERSON
DR. ROY. E. ANDERSON passed away February 22, 2014 in Lethbridge at the age of 91. He is the loving
father of three daughters: Gail Sherlock of Calgary, Pam Anderson of Lethbridge and Deb (Rob) Cornelssen
of Cochrane. He has five grandchildren: Mark and Lisa Sherlock, Jamie (Derek) Williamson, Taryn
Cornelssen and Mike Anderson; two great grandchildren Ben and Adelyn Williamson. Roy was predeceased by
his beloved wife, Doris, his brother, Dr. Howard Anderson and his son-in-law, Rolf Sherlock.
Roy was born in Berry Creek, Alberta, on December 17, 1922. He attended Normal School in Calgary where he
earned his teaching certificate and proceeded to teach in a one-room schoolhouse. His teaching career was
cut short by his acceptance into the Army when he was chosen out of a select few to attend the University
of Toronto in the Engineering program. Roy achieved the rank of Lieutenant through his Officer Training.
While serving, he met the love of his life Doris Price at the Army base in Camp Borden where she was a
Red Cross volunteer. They were married on August 23, 1947 in Toronto and spent 59 years together as soul
mates.
After the war, Roy attended and graduated from the Chiropractic College in Toronto. He initially
practiced in Taber and then formed the Chiropractic Associate Clinic in Lethbridge in partnership with
Dr. Jim Speelman; they both retired in 1997.
Roy had a great love for people, a very calming nature and a positive philosophy about life. He was a
dedicated family man and cared greatly about the well being of his patients, friends and family.
Roy enjoyed all sports, especially a good golf game. He was well known for his wonderful sense of humour.
Thanks, Dad for the love and the laughter. We are really going to miss you.
The family will be having a private celebration of his life. In lieu of flowers, we respectfully request
donations be made to the Windy City Canine Rescue (www.windycityrescue.com) or Last Chance Cat Ranch.

DENA MARINO
1924 ~ 2014
Dena Lorraine Marino passed away February 19, 2014 in Lethbridge at the age of 89 years.
Dena was born to Charles and Wandah Parry on September 20, 1924 in Lethbridge Alberta. Her beginnings as
a child sparked her love for horses, with her daily duty of herding dairy cows along roadside ditches
even before she was old enough to start school. There was no such thing as a day without responsibilities
on the dairy farm. She attended White School and Olds College but returned home after suffering a knee
injury. As their father’s health was perilous, and with her older brother Bert overseas with the RCAF,
she and her little brother Don were needed to run the farm during the WW2 years.
It was then that Dena met Carl Marino of Montreal in 1942, while he was stationed at the Lethbridge
Airport, #8 Bombing and Gunnery School .Mom was a talented painter but also had an amazing talent for
writing, which landed her an invitation to move to Hollywood after two recordings, sung by Annette
Warren, and a lyrical debut adopted by the popular Juliette TV Show. She eagerly left it all behind, for
she had met the love of her life, here in Lethbridge: they were married, and settled on 40 acres on the
Jail Road. Soon it was wall to wall horses. No surprise there!! We four kids grew up there and loved it
with all our hearts, as did Mom and Dad. Family and friends were at the top of her list, along with her
passion for her horses. As an accomplished horse woman, and as a founding member of several horse clubs,
including the Remington Carriage Combined Driving Club, it was no surprise that she was still winning
competitions at the age of 66. She resided on the farm until she was 83 years old, then moved to South
Lethbridge.
Dena was predeceased by her husband Carl in 1990, brother Bert Parry, infant sister Lola, and
granddaughter Leisha Marino. She is survived by her brother Don Parry (Freda); as well as all four of her
children: Juanita (Wayne) McKenzie, Don (Dawn) Marino, Linda (Randy) Maxwell and Jamie (Barb) Marino: 10
grandchildren; Tyler and Dan Willis; Lisa and Neil Marino; Kim Punter, Natalie Guidinger and Kyle
Maxwell; Raina, Myriah and Ryley Marino: and 8 great-grandchildren, with “one on the way”.
We love you Mom! We thank you for your passion for life, and everything in it, as we would do it all over
again…..JUST LIKE THAT!
A celebration of her life will take place on Friday, February 28, 2014 at 1:00 pm at the ITALIAN-CANADIAN
CULTURAL CENTRE, 1511 St. Edward Blvd. North, Lethbridge.

HARVEY
December 8, 1928 – February 24, 2014
ALISTAIR MCLENNAN “MAC” HARVEY passed away at the Fairmont Extendicare in Lethbridge on Monday, February 24th, 2014 at the age of 85 years.
Mac was born in Glasgow, Scotland and moved with his family to Blackburn, England where he attended
primary and grammar school. On leaving school, he became a “farmer’s boy” for five years before attending
King’s College, Newcastle upon Tyne where he received a B.Sc (Hon.) in Animal Science and Agricultural
Economics. He was first employed in a government advisory service, and later by the agricultural division
of ICI mainly in northern England and southern Scotland. In 1969, he moved to eastern Canada with the
agricultural division of CIL, the Canadian division of ICI. After four years, to be closer to the
mountains he loved, Mac resigned from ICI and gained further experience in farm business and management
in Edmonton and Olds, then moved to Lethbridge in 1978 as Regional Economist with Alberta Agriculture at
the Lethbridge Research Centre. He took early retirement in 1985 to “become better acquainted with how
the 90% of the less fortunate of the world manage to survive”, becoming a consultant with CESO
international (Canadian Executive Service Overseas) travelling to many parts of the Third World in this
capacity.
Mac was an avid outdoorsman and world traveller. From early expeditions with the Barnsley Mountaineering
Club in Yorkshire, England, he continued his adventures in North America and around the world from the
Rockies to the Himalayas, the Alps to the Andes, the High Arctic to Antarctica, and to Australia, New
Zealand and parts of Africa. In Lethbridge, he joined the Chinook Outdoor Club and continued with his
hobbies of hiking, mountaineering, skiing and cycling, as well as photography and stamp collecting. Mac
always exuded an aura of positive cheer and optimism, and made friends wherever he went.
Mac was predeceased by his parents John and Jessie Harvey, and his sister Muriel Smurthwaite of
Queensland, Australia. Mac never married. His closest relatives are a nieces and nephews in Australia,
and a cousin in England. He will be missed by his friends Becky, Norman and Geoff, by the staff at
Extendicare, and his main care giver, Gilbert, of We Care.
A Celebration of Life for Mac will be arranged at a future date.
Donations in Mac’s name may be made to a charity of your choice, or to Meals on Wheels or MSF (Medecins
Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders), two of his favourite charities.
