MARY ELLEN EVERS
1924 ~ 2014
Mary Ellen Evers of Lethbridge, beloved wife of the late Lloyd Evers, passed away peacefully on June 20, 2014 at the age of 90 years.
Mary was born on the family farm near Pukwana, South Dakota on May 14, 1924 to George and Mary Leiferman. She and her identical twin sister Margaret were delivered by their father and were the youngest of 7 children. Mary was married to her high school sweetheart on September 4, 1946 in Chamberlain, South Dakota.
Mary spent some of her early years teaching, but devoted the majority of her life to being a wonderful, kind, nurturing wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
One of Mom’s greatest passions was sports. She spent endless hours score keeping, cheering and supporting her kids in whatever sport they participated in, especially baseball/softball and basketball. She was a member of the Coutts CWL for many years.
Besides spending as much time as possible with her kids, grandkids and great grandkids, she had two dreams. She dreamt to someday see the Toronto Raptors play and also to go to spring training with the Blue Jays. Both of these dreams were realized when she was in her 80’s. It was also special that she was able to visit her twin sister Margaret in California every summer, and when she wasn’t traveling she enjoyed playing cards with family and friends including Pinochle, Bridge and Canasta.
Mom spent the last 9 years of her life at Garden View Lodge, where she made so many great memories. This truly was the perfect place for her to be and it made her so happy. They were a true blessing for her and she, a true blessing for them.
Mary is survived by her children Connie (Tom) Gilkison of Salem, OR; Dan (Sandy) Evers of Monmouth, OR; Randy (Lorri) Evers of Brasada Ranch, OR; Nancy Van Kasteren of Okotoks, AB, Kent (Susan) Evers of Portland, OR; Marilee (Clint) Hillmer of Magrath, AB; sister Margaret Healey of Anaheim, CA; ten grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Lloyd in 2005 and son Doug in 2008.
Prayers will be held at 7:00pm on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610 – 4 St S, Lethbridge. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 2:00pm on Thursday, June 26, 2014 at ST. BASIL’S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 604 – 13 St. N Lethbridge, with Father Nathan Siray, officiating.

MILES ROBIN KNEALE
1941 ~ 2014
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Miles on June 22, 2014 at the St. Michael’s Health Centre.
Miles was predeceased by his parents John & Edith Kneale, and his wife of 47 years, Jolene Kneale only eight months ago.
Miles was born on January 21, 1941 in Shanghai, China and spent his early years living in Singapore, Australia & England before residing in Canada (Drumheller, Vermillion, Calgary, & Lethbridge). Miles and his Mother Edith were liberated from the Santo Tomas Japanese Internment Camp in the Philippines in 1945 after surviving nearly 4 years there. Both Miles and his Mother were awarded the Pacific Star for the time they were interned.
Miles career path spanned many areas; Brewster Transport, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, the insurance industry, he ran a distributorship for Safeguard Business Systems along with his wife Jolene, and finally working for the Corps of Commissionaires in Lethbridge.
Miles spent twenty two years in the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves, Cadet Instructor Cadre. During this time, he worked with hundreds of young people who chose to join the Army Cadets. He retired from the Cadet Instructor Cadre as Captain with the Canadian Decoration and BAR. He then went on to be Provincial Treasurer of the Army Cadet League of Alberta for four years and was made a life member of the Army Cadet League of Canada.
Miles was a loving husband, father, father-in-law, aggravating big brother, and prankster uncle. He was a kind, humorous and gentle man who will be greatly missed. He was a lifelong Calgary Flames and Calgary Stampeders fan and met his wife Jolene at a Stampeders game. Over the last several months, Miles obtained his lifelong dream of spending time on Vancouver Island.
Miles is survived by his three children; David (Olive), Dianne (Bill), and Belinda (Mike); sister Jeanette (Jim) Jarvis of Annandale, Virginia, ; Grandchildren Robin and Nicholas Kneale; Grand-dogs Tess & Juneau Spiteri, three nephews, two nieces, lifelong friends Bob and Sue Waldenberger, Dennis & Jackie Bennett, and his beloved dog, Jack.
The family wishes to thank the staff of the Nanaimo Regional Hospital, The Chinook Regional Hospital & St. Michael’s Health Center for the care that Dad received. As per Miles wishes, a private family service was held, and then he will be reunited with Jolene.
