ANNE M. COWAN (NEE BEERS)
APRIL 29, 1922 ~
MARCH 2, 2014
Anne Cowan, beloved mother, grandmother and great- grandmother, passed away peacefully at the Beverly
Center in Calgary on Sunday, March 2, 2014 at the age of 91 years.
Mother was one of sixteen children born to Mary and Purl Beers in Emerson, N.B. She was an active member
of the First United Church, Maple Leaf Chapter No. 7 O.E.S., 702 Wing Air Force Association, Royal
Canadian Legion, Steward Branch #4, and Lethbridge Senior Centre. Mom golfed for many years at Magrath
Golf and Country Club. She clogged well into her seventies which helped keep her attitude young and her
bones strong. Alzheimer’s claimed mother’s mind years ago but not her spirit. She was well-loved and will
be missed and remembered for her strength and her wonderful, self- deprecating sense of humor.
Anne is survived by her daughters Carolyn Cowan, Wendy Thomas and Donna (Jim) Smith; grandsons Tyler and
Lucas Thomas; great grand-children Peyton and Bronwyn Thomas, as well as hundreds of nieces and nephews
(remember the 15 brothers and sisters). Mom was predeceased by her husband George, sister-in-law Margaret
Meidinger, son-in-law Chris Thomas, mom’s parents and all her siblings.
A Memorial Service will be held for Anne Cowan at 3:00pm on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at Mountain View
Cemetery in Lethbridge. The service will be held at the graveside of George Cowan where mother will be
laid to rest.

will miss her strength and guiding presence. A special thank you to all of those at the Dialysis Clinic

SHARON FRIZZLEY
(FORMERLY WHALEN)
It is with profound sadness that the family of Sharon Mae Frizzley announces her passing, which occurred
on Wednesday, July 16, 2014, at the age of 64.
Sharon was born on March 11, 1950 in Treherne, Manitoba, where she was raised and attended school,
eventually earning a clerical diploma from Red River College in Winnipeg. It was while residing in
Manitoba that she gave birth to her five children, for whom she went on to sacrifice so much.
In 1980 the family moved to Coaldale, Alberta. Sharon was instrumental in establishing ringette in
Coaldale, and received a Government of Canada Celebration 88 medal in recognition of her community
involvement. In her late thirties Sharon bravely began pursuing her lifelong goal of teaching, beginning
with earning her high school diploma. In and amongst continuing her education she held her family
together through a major crisis, at times working three or more jobs at a time. In 1995 she graduated
from the University of Lethbridge with an Education degree, majoring in History and Art. So began a three
year period spent searching for her first teaching job. A period which, in 1997, included her initial
cancer diagnosis.
Sharon began her career in Fox Lake, Alberta before moving on to North Tall Cree, Alberta. On November
11, 2000 she met Randy Gurtler. Sharon and Randy hit it off right away, and their romance was born. In
2002, while working on renovations for what would become her and Randy’s dream home, Sharon suffered a
fall, which led to the X-ray that revealed the cancer had returned.
Prior to the start of the 2002/2003 school year, Sharon was hired to be the lone teacher in a one room
school at Breaking Point School, outside of Manning, Alberta. She loved her new environment and
especially the children, and was devoted and passionate, remaining so for the entire 8 plus years she
taught “her” kids. She had the partner, home, and job she always wanted. On November 11, 2010, ten years
to the day of meeting, Sharon and Randy were married in the Deadwood Church. She went on to teach at
Dixonville School, showing that same devotion and passion right up to the end of this past school year,
which proved to be her last. While her disease at times caused her to be physically absent from class,
her school, classroom, and students were never far from mind. In the years following her second
diagnosis, Sharon travelled to Seattle, New York, and Chicago, attending major league baseball games in
each city. She never let her disease limit or define her, fighting a very private battle. On the morning
of Wednesday, July 16, 2014, Sharon passed away surrounded by family, on her deck, overlooking her dream.
Sharon is survived by her husband Randy Gurtler, her children Marty, Troy (Amey), Trent (Amber), Kristy
(Brian), and Curtis, grandchildren Isabelle, Haley, Luke, Leah, Abigail, and one more soon to arrive,
sister Lynn Clark (Wayne) and brother Bill Frizzley (Jean), as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents Joseph and Doreen Frizzley, nephew Mark, and by her very well cared
for and beloved dog Luther.
