BOSNAK, Barbara Lynn
August 10, 1937 –
Lethbridge, Alberta
August 11, 2014 –
Calgary, Alberta
It is with indescribable sadness we share the passing of our beloved mother, Nana, sister and friend on
Monday, August 11, 2014 at the age of 77.
Barb is survived by her loving daughters Pamela (Ron), Kim, Robyn (Dean), her grandchildren Michael and
Danielle Wenzlawe and Taylor and Nicole Jensen. She is survived by her siblings Bonnie and Gary Kirk of
Lethbridge. Barb is predeceased by her loving husband of 25 years John Bosnak, her parents William and
Hazel Kirk and Barb’s dear friend and companion Eddie King.
Barb’s high school years proved to be of great significance as she met her best friend Donella and
pursued her calling in health care. Barb was the heart of the Bosnak household ensuring it was a safe
harbor to anyone who needed a cup of coffee or an understanding ear. She devoted much of her time with
her children and grandchildren sharing her love of music, dance, travel and chocolate ice cream.
Our family would like to extend gratitude and appreciation to everyone who invested care and comfort at
various facilities over the last three months. A heartfelt thank you to the angels at Rosedale Hospice
whose unreserved compassion, dignity and grace ensured Barb remained comfortable and respected.
A Celebration of Barb’s Life is to be held at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through

WIEST
RICHARD (DICK) ALLAN WIEST dearly loved husband of Karen Wiest, passed away at the Calgary Foothills
Hospital on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at the age of 76 years.
Dick was born June 13, 1938, at home on the Wiest farm, the youngest of 15 children of Clarence and Edith
Wiest. He received all his schooling at Enchant.
The only time Dick strayed from Enchant was in 1954, when he played for the Taber Junior Baseball Team
and 1958, when he played semi-pro ball for the Vauxhall Jets.
He continued his love for the game playing on the Old Timers team. He loved all sports and played for
many years on the local hockey and baseball teams.
Later, as his boys grew, he went on to coach some of their teams. His favorite pastime was to watch his
boys and grandchildren follow in his footsteps in their love for hockey and baseball. As his family grew,
he learned to expand his sport interests to include figure skating, volleyball, basketball and track.
December 28, 1961, Dick married Karen Odland. They lived in the “Honeymoon Shack” north of Lost Lake
until they purchased the old Herb Stevens house and barn in 1963, and had them moved to their homestead
where he resided for the rest of his life.
Dick always considered himself a real homesteader, as he had to break up all his land and plant each and
every tree. Throughout the years he also raised a variety of livestock such as cattle, chickens, emus and
even peacocks.
Dick has always been very active in his community and was always up for a challenge. He was instrumental
in bringing the following to Enchant: original park and golf course, skating rink, seed cleaning plant
and our local museum. He also served as a member of the Enchant and District Historical Society.
Dick is survived by his wife Karen, his 4 children and their families: Rachelle (husband Brian, children
Taryn & Jonathan Tycholis, Kyla, Eric & Holly, Chelsey) Steeves, Richard (wife Kandis, children Joshua &
Jenna (great grandson Jackson), Mikel, Jordan, Dallas McGrath, Joel McGrath) Wiest, Rodi (Shauna,
children Daniel, Brooke, Dharma, McKenzie) Wiest, and Ryan (wife Cherlynn, children Jaelynn, Kamryn)
Wiest. He is also survived by his brothers Cecil (wife Louise) Wiest and Phil (wife Caroline) Wiest; as
well as numerous nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his daughter Shannon Wiest; parents Clarence & Edith Wiest; siblings John Wiest,
Phyllis Howg, Wilfred Wiest, Lola Batalden, George Wiest, David Wiest, Roy Wiest, Mike Wiest, Charles
Wiest, Helen Wiest, Elsie Bryant and Reginald Wiest.
A Visitation will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge on
Monday, August 18, 2014 from 7:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.
The Celebration of Life will be held at the ENCHANT COMMUNITY HALL, 127 Center Street, Enchant on
Tuesday, August 19, 2014 at 2:00 P.M. with Pastor Jeff Frostad officiating.
In lieu of flowers, in memory of Dick Wiest all donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of
Alberta, PO Box 2211, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 4K7 or to the Southern Alberta Bible Camp, Box 99, Lomond, AB,
