BRADLEY
  MRS. MAY BRADLEY (nee Cullen), beloved wife of the late Mr. Jack Bradley of Lethbridge, passed away at
the St. Therese Villa on Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at the age of 96 years.
May was born on December 18, 1917 in Lethbridge and completed her schooling in Bow Island. She attended
the University of Alberta for one year before entering the School of Nursing program at the Holy Cross
Hospital in Calgary. Learning the “art” of nursing as well as nursing as a science was reflected in
earning a medal for “Executive Ability” at her graduation. May said she was never sure what she did to
deserve it but it must have been something good. Making patients feel comfortable and secure served as
her mission in life for all the people’s lives she touched. After graduating in 1939 she began her
Stewardess training program in Winnipeg for TCA (now Air Canada). An RN designation was required at the
time for this career. On her second flight she met Jack Bradley, the flight captain. They were married in
1941 and settled in Montreal where their three children were born. Following Jack’s tragic death in 1945,
May moved back west settling first in Vancouver and then in Lethbridge in 1949. She returned to her
nursing career which spanned decades and included clinic work, Head Nurse at St. Michael’s Hospital and
teaching at the St. Michael’s School of Nursing. May retired in 1977 but her love of nursing stayed close
to her heart. Music was a major part of her life and her gift of singing and playing the piano will be an
unforgettable memory for all. From sing-songs to birthday parties to hymns during the church services at
Pemmican Lodge, it remained a therapy for both the player and the listener. May will be greatly missed by
her son Tim, daughter Jackie (Ed), grandchildren Tammy (Todd), Jeff (Chelsea), Shannon and Kirsten
(Felix) as well as five great-grandchildren. She will also be lovingly remembered by her sister Frances,
sister-in-law Fay and many nieces and nephews. May was predeceased by her husband Jack, son Joe, parents
“Minnie” and Louis, brothers Alan, Norman, Louis and sister Patricia.
A Memorial Mass will be Celebrated at OUR LADY OF THE ASSUMPTION CATHOLIC CHURCH, 2405 – 12th Avenue
South, Lethbridge on Saturday, April 8, 2014 at 1:00 P.M. with Father Nathan Siray, Celebrant.
A private family Graveside Service will be held at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Calgary at a later date.

IRVINE
It is with the utmost sadness that the family of RONALD DENNIS “SCOTTY” IRVINE announces his passing
after a short, but courageous battle with lung disease.
Scotty was born on the family farm near Barons, Alberta to parents Hazel (nee Mickleberg) and Billy
Irvine, where he spent the rest of his life farming. Married to Madeline Mifflin for nearly 60 years,
they raised four children: Terry, Gary (Brenda), Lee (Monica) and Barb (Chris). Scotty loved camping and
fishing in the mountains and spent many summers with the family near Spring Creek. In his later years, he
spent much of his time on the golf course at Keho Lake, perfecting his game. He loved being outdoors and
always “on the go” somewhere. Sharing a story or a joke at the local coffee shop was a favourite pastime.
He had a great sense of humour and made friends wherever he went. In his last days, Scotty was surrounded
by all of his family at his bedside, sharing stories and jokes right up until his last moments.
Scotty was predeceased by his mother Hazel (nee Mickleberg), father Billy Irvine, and brother Sonny. He
is survived by his sister Lorraine and wife Madeline. Scotty is the proud father of four children, six
grandchildren: Colby, Connor, Baylee, Carson, Brandon and Lauren. Scotty was a true testament to “family
first”.
A Celebration of Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South,
Lethbridge on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 1:00 P.M. with Pastor Glenda Wert officiating.
