ANDREW “ANDY” ALM
1924 ~ 2014
Andrew (Andy) Alm of Lethbridge, passed away suddenly at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 in his ninetieth year. Just recently, on April 22 family and friends gathered to celebrate Andy’s 90th birthday. Andy was absolutely delighted to have had the time reminiscing with old and new friends.
In 1941 Andy left Iron Springs to join the 39th Battery Royal Canadian Artillery in Lethbridge. After a few months of basic training, he was sent to England in April 1942 where he served with the 3rd Medium Royal Canadian Artillery. After WWII he answered the call of his country a second time, and served in the Korean War with the 2nd Canadian Horse Artillery. Andy was very patriotic and took every opportunity to wave the Canadian flag he was so proud of.
Throughout the years Andy has been committed to giving his all to the community and/or interests whether it was with the Boy Scout troupe in Iron Springs, VASA Lodge, Pottery Guild, Korean Veterans, the Legion, Norbridge Seniors, Korean Veterans, the Sons of Norway and most recently with his passion for Paper Tolling. Andy believed that one should not just be a member of a club or organization, but an active participant.
Andy is predeceased by his wife Anne, and is survived by his three daughters, Sandra Jamieson (Acadia Valley, AB), Karen Alm (Lethbridge, AB) and Teresa Alm (Kingston, ON) and two Grandchildren, Nicole Staddon (Plattsville, ON) and Matthew Jamieson (Dutton, ON) and five Great -Grandchildren, Wyatt and Trent Staddon and Emily, Elizabeth and his 6 month old great grandson name after Andy, Everett Andrew George Jamieson. Andy is also survived by his sister Ellen Suelzle (Sundre, AB) and by nieces and nephews.

Betty Mae Stewart
It is with great sadness that the family of Betty Mae Stewart announce her passing on Thursday June 5, 2014 at the age of 81 years.
Betty Mae Bannink was born on August 19, 1932 in Lethbridge; the eldest child of Everett and Nettie Bannink. Betty Mae and her siblings Doug, Donald, Jean and Linda grew up in the Monarch area and attended school in Nobleford.
Times were lean on the farm but there was never a shortage of love and support in the Bannink household. Perhaps inspired by her mother’s dream of being a teacher, Betty Mae graduated from the University of Alberta (Calgary) Faculty of Education in 1952. She then accepted her first teaching position at the McNally School.
Betty Mae found true love and married her lifelong partner Gordon in 1954 – a union that flourished over 54 years. Their family life would begin soon thereafter which saw Betty Mae trade in her teaching career for her made-to-measure role as “Mom”. There was no greater supporter of her daughters in education, sports, music and career. She dedicated herself to ensuring her children would take pride in achievement and independence. Her installation as Worthy Matron, Order of the Eastern Star (Heather Chapter) was just one of her own proud moments.
While busy with all that entails being a farmer’s wife and mother to three daughters, Betty Mae would work with her mother to help create the Monarch Beavers Club. For many years this Club and its volunteers would entertain hundreds each year through fundraising activities whose proceeds would be dedicated to local charities. She returned to teaching on a substitute basis once her daughters were all in school. She was admired and respected by all students who enjoyed her days in the classroom. Throughout her life, Betty Mae remained a valued community supporter. Her kitchen table was often a welcome gathering place for conversation or comfort for those in need. And all were rewarded with her infamous baking.
Later in life, her three granddaughters Emma, Jillian and Hope provided enormous joy – another generation of budding pride.
Betty Mae leaves to mourn her three daughters – Laurie Hacker (Bob Hacker), Barbara Stewart and Patti Stewart (Peter Marshall); granddaughters Emma Hacker, Jillian Hacker and Hope Stewart-Marshall; brothers Douglas Bannink (Dona) and Donald Bannink (Marilyn); brother-in-law Andy Veres (Louise) in addition to numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, friends and neighbours. She was predeceased by husband Gordon; parents Everett and Nettie; sisters Jean Veres and Linda Keller; and son-in-law Ron Poole.
A Funeral Service will be held at MCKILLOP UNITED CHURCH – 2329 15 Ave S, Lethbridge, AB. on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 at 2:00 PM with Reverend Trevor Potter officiating.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alberta Heart & Stroke Foundation or The Canadian Cancer Society.

Born on October 12, 1946 to Don and Mary Wagner in Toronto, ON, Jay moved first to Vancouver, then to Calgary and finally settled in Lethbridge in 1989. Jay was an avid golfer who achieved two holes-in-one during her playing “career”. She loved organizing games nights with her family and friends, playing bridge in various clubs and was an active member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. She worked for many years as a legal assistant at MacLachlan McNab Hembroff, retiring in 2011. Jay was a devoted member of Southminster United Church, sitting on various committees.

LEO MATTEOTTI
1950~ 2014
Leo Giuliano Matteotti of Lethbridge, beloved husband of Kathleen, father of Christina and Garret, son of Bruno and Emilia, and brother of Rose Marie and Ralph, passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on June 3rd, 2014.
He was born in Dro, Italy on January 9th 1950. The family immigrated to Canada in June 1950 and settled on Lethbridge’s north side. His fondest times were those spent with his family. Growing up, he worked in the garden with his mother and climbed mountains with his father. He loved the camaraderie of baseball, broomball, and hockey; was an excellent cook and an avid golfer; and loved starting the day with a crisp newspaper.
Leo was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2007. Following this diagnosis, he was even more determined to live life to the fullest. Leo and Kathleen loved travelling together: with his brother and sister, they visited his extended family in his native Italy; went to the beaches of Dieppe; journeyed to London for Christina’s PhD graduation; and golfed in Arizona during the Canadian winter. He was always up for a project, helping Garret build the basement in his first house. He loved following the progress of his New York Yankees, Green Bay Packers, and Montreal Canadiens, visiting Yankee Stadium with Kathleen and Lambeau Field with Garret. More recently, he took up duplicate bridge and relished the sense of community and the chance to build up his master points. And, of course, time spent on the golf course, especially with the Orfuns, was always a highlight.
He and his family are grateful for the excellent care he received throughout his courageous battle with cancer. In particular, we would like to thank Dr Bahlis and Dr Neri at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary, the extraordinary nurses and Dr Benke at the Jack Ady Cancer Centre in Lethbridge, and all of the staff at the Chinook Regional Hospital.
He was immensely proud of his family and very grateful for his friends. We will remember his kind and gentle nature, his tremendous depth of thought, strong moral compass, his devotion to those he cared about, and his thirst for life. He led quietly and powerfully by example and enriched the lives of all who knew him. He will be greatly missed and very fondly remembered.
Friends are invited to join the family for a Prayer Service, which will be held 7:00 P.M., on Friday, June 6, 2014 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610-4th St. S., Lethbridge, AB.
A Funeral Mass will be Celebrated at 11:00 A.M., on Saturday, June 7, 2014 at OUR LADY OF ASSUMPTION CHURCH, 2405-12th Ave. S., Lethbridge, AB, with Father Kevin Tumback, Celebrant. Interment to follow in Mountain View Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Leo’s memory to the Canadian Cancer Society, 317-10th St. S., Lethbridge, AB, T1J 2M7.
