BARBARA EDNA DAVIES
Barbara Edna Davies (nee Black), beloved wife of the late George B. Davies Jr. passed away peacefully on her 85th Birthday on Tuesday, May 20th, 2014. She was surrounded by her four children: Bart Davies, Sharon Fogtmann, Edward Davies and John Davies.
Barbara was born and raised in Vancouver and spent her childhood summers at Hopkins Landing at the family cottage. She met her late husband George when she attended UBC and was married in Vancouver on October 1, 1952. George and Barbara settled in Lethbridge where her husband George was born and raised. She and George also spent many memorable summers with their four children at Hopkins Landing near Gibsons, B.C.
Barbara enjoyed the YMCA where she was a long time board member and swam on a regular basis. One of her greatest loves was swimming in the ocean both at Hopkins Landing and on Maui every winter. She spent numerous vacations on Maui with her childhood friend Virginia Young from Hopkins Landing, B.C. and then the past three years with her friend Susan Campbell from Cranbrook, B.C..
Barbara enjoyed her home in Lethbridge with a view of the coulees and she loved her summers in Fernie, B.C. at her condo on the golf course. There the majestic views of the mountains reminded her of her childhood growing up in Vancouver, B.C..
In recent years, Barbara looked forward to playing bridge with her friends and made a point of keeping in touch with numerous friends. She kept in close touch with her longtime friend Joyce Arnold over a span of 55 years. She also maintained a lifelong friendship with her two childhood friends on the west coast: Bernice (Bell) Barr and Virginia Young. Barbara’s generosity and kindness shown to her many friends and charitable causes was unparalleled. She touched and enriched so many lives!
Her family was the most important part of her life and she loved family gatherings. In a letter she left to her family upon her passing she said: “Lastly I want all of you to know how much you have enriched my life: my four children, their spouses and the grandchildren. I am so very proud of you all and love you always”.
Barbara leaves behind her four children: Bart (Cynthia) Davies, Sharon (Paul) Fogtmann, Edward (Carol) Davies, and John Davies (Penny Davis). She also leaves behind her ten grandchildren: Dylan Davies (Jan Fitzpatrick), Suzanne Davies (Joe Ross), Kristy (Jacob) Togo. Taryn (Dave) Wilson, Alison Fogtmann (Donald Elliot), Russell and Colleen Davies (mother Karen Davies), and Taylor, Cameron and Jack Davies. She is also survived by three great grandchildren: Jaylyn, Ellarie and Bentley.
Barbara leaves behind her two deeply loved sisters in Vancouver, B.C., Runa Oughtred and Daphne (Stan) Avis who she was in contact with on a weekly basis. She also leaves behind numerous nephews and nieces.
Besides being predeceased by her husband George, Barbara was also predeceased by her grandson Zachary Davies.
After Barbara lost George in 2003 she adopted a wonderful cat named Rylie. She became a cherished companion for Barbara and she affectionately referred to Rylie as her “queen bee”.
Barbara’s children would like to thank the ICU at Chinook Regional Hospital. Your wonderful care of Barbara was extraordinary. Thank you also to Dr. Morley Wong for his heartfelt support, guidance and concern during this difficult time.
As per Barbara’s wishes there will be no funeral service.

Dorothy Winberg
1921 – 2014
³In the depth of winter – within me
there lay an invincible summer²
Albert Camus
Dorothy Winberg, beloved wife of the late Harry Winberg, passed away peacefully in Taber on Friday, May 23, 2014 at the age of 92 years. She had a long struggle with dementia which robbed her of much, but never her gentle soul.
The Funeral Service will be held at St. Theodore’s Anglican Church, 5120 – 44 Avenue, Taber on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at 11:00 A.M with Reverend Erin Phillips officiating. Burial to follow at the Taber Memorial Garden. Condolences may be forwarded by visiting our website at http://www.southlandfuneral.com <http://www.southlandfuneral.com&gt; .
Dorothy is survived by her three children, son Blake Holtman of Taber and his three children Jay (Lucy) Holtman (family Mindy, Fraser and Mateo), Janene (Troy) Moch (family Brooklyn and Brett) and Andrea (Trevor) Stroeve-Sawa (family Taylor, Treven and Tanae); son Jerry (Sharon) Holtman of Taber and their two children Holly Holtman (Doug Gruner) (their family Quinn, Skyler and Nicolas) and Scott Holtman; daughter Patricia Davies of Lethbridge and her three children Merran (Dan) Tellier (daughter Ashley), Kristin Davies and Sarah Davies (son Parker).
Dorothy is also survived by Harry¹s two daughters, Karen (Ron) Gurba of Winnipeg (their two children Brent (Colleen) Gurba and Kristin McDonald) and Myrna (Marvin) Guenter of Calgary (their two children Jason and Todd); Harry¹s brother Howard (Edi) Winberg of Vauxhall and sister Peggy (Jack) Slowoniuk of Seattle, Washington and their families.
Dorothy was predeceased by her first husband Billy Holtman and her second husband Harry Winberg; parents Albert and Wilhemina Green; brother Leonard Green and sister Margaret Green.
Dorothy was the second child born to Albert and Wilhemina Green of Taber. She was born in the family home on September 5, 1921. Her childhood was surrounded by ranch life with sheep and cattle and lots of room to roam the range. This was the first education she received. Her education continued at the old Central School in Taber and she furthered her education at a girl¹s boarding school in Calgary.
A lifetime Anglican, Dorothy supported her church wherever she lived. She lived her life with humour, dignity, wisdom, style, emotion and love. Her spirit is finally free and we will remember her as she once was, happy, loving and her camera in hand at all of her grandchildren¹s activities.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Dorothy¹s name may be made directly to St. Theodore¹s Anglican Church, 5120 – 44 Avenue, Taber, Alberta T1G 1A9.
The family would like to express their gratitude to Dr. Wedel and the many caregivers at Linden View.
Arrangements in care of Southland Funeral Chapel, Taber. Telephone: (403) 223-8778.
