1948 ~ HIRSCHE ~ 2014
Mr. Reid Hirsche of Foremost, beloved husband of the late Sherilynn “Sherry” Hirsche, passed away
peacefully at home on the farm with family by his side on Saturday, April 12th, 2014 at the age of 65
years. Reid leaves to cherish his memory five children, Dallas (Tamara) Hirsche of Calgary, Chad
(Marilynn) Hirsche of Foremost, Heather (Bruce) Clayton of Strathmore, Brett (Amy) Hirsche and Nicole
(Derek) Losey, both of Foremost; his mother, Alverna Mortimer of Langford, British Columbia; his mother-
in-law, Jeanne Roth of Foremost; thirteen grandchildren, Lyndsay, Evan, Tyler, Justin, Cole, Chase, Cyle,
Katelyn, Dane, Leah, Jack, Damon and Preslee; one brother, Lynn (Loretta) Hirsche of Foremost; three
sisters, Linda (Butch) Black of Gabriola Island, British Columbia, Wendy Lortie of Edmonton and Cherie
(Tim) Webber of Calgary; his sister-in-law, Janice (Blaine) Poberznick of Medicine Hat; his sister-in-law
Annette Roth of Boca Raton Florida; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Reid was preceded in death by
the love of his life, Sherry in 1999; his father, Arvin “Tye” Hirsche; his brother-in-law, Greg Roth; and
his father-in-law, George Roth. Reid was born on June 12th, 1948 in Lethbridge. He worked in the oil
patch in the early 1970’s, but moved back home to farm and ranch in Foremost. He lived in the original
homestead until the time of his passing. In addition to farming, Reid started a gravel business in the
1990’s serving the local community. Reid’s farm, gravel business and cattle were his passion while
honesty, integrity and hard work were the cornerstones of his personality. Although he was almost always
working on the farm or hauling gravel, Reid always welcomed his friends and neighbours into his home for
a coffee and a visit. Reid loved his family, and will be missed dearly by all. He fought a courageous 2 _
year battle with cancer. We take comfort that mom and dad are now together again looking down on us all.
We would like to send a special thank you to Dr. Lewke-Bogle and Milk River Hospital and Staff for their
excellent care of Reid. A Celebration of Reid’s Life will be held in the FOREMOST COMMUNITY HALL, 801 –
1st Avenue West, Foremost, Alberta on Saturday, April 19th, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. with Blaine Poberznick
conducting. A private interment will take place at Foremost Cemetery. Memorial gifts in Reid’s memory may
be made to the Milk River Hospital, 517 Centre Avenue, Milk River, Alberta, T0K 1M0. Condolences may be

on the Perrin family farm with her loving parents and grandparents and in 1995, Renae married Kim Wilson
of Crane Valley, Saskatchewan and shortly thereafter relocated to Lethbridge, Alberta.

Renae’s passing leaves a huge emptiness in our lives and in our hearts but her faith, devotion, and
