MacPherson, Dorothy
Dorothy Hilda MacPherson (nee Cameron), born in Lethbridge, Alberta on August 7, 1926, passed away in Edmonton, Alberta on April 29, 2014. As a young adult, Dorothy proudly served her country as a member of the CWAC. Dorothy went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Education from the University of Alberta. She added to her career with specialized training in Guidance Counselling at the University of British Columbia. Dorothy taught school for 35 years, spending most of those years at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute as a Guidance Counsellor. Many students remained in contact with Dorothy over the years, sharing their life successes, which she loved hearing. Dorothy married Ray Douglas MacPherson in 1955 and they were blessed with one beautiful daughter, Jane Dorothy. Jane was truly the apple of her parents¹ eyes and all three remained very close throughout their lives. Ray passed away in 1999 and Jane in the spring of 2014. Dorothy is also predeceased by her parents, Archie and Hilda Cameron. Dorothy was well known for her beautiful singing voice. As a young woman she was a member of choirs, and received much praise and accolades throughout her life for her choral and solo performances. She was a gourmet cook and wonderful hostess. She liked nothing better than to entertain family and friends, serving a lovely meal followed by a sing-along around the piano, which she also played well. Dorothy was a gardener extraordinaire, with a flair for roses and tomatoes. Really all living plants flourished under her care, and her beautiful garden was the site of many social events. She loved to read and do crosswords daily; was an exceptional writer; and had a soft spot for animals, particularly dogs. Dorothy also enjoyed skiing, golfing, travelling, and photography, with holidays and special events captured and shared with many. We invite family and friends to celebrate Dorothy¹s life at one final social event in her beautiful garden on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 2:00 p.m., 7716 ­ 155 Street, Edmonton (please bring a chair).

VIANI
Friday September 12, 2014 was a very sad day for the Viani Family. GIUSEPPE VIANI passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 84 years. His battle with Alzheimers is finally over. The Viani Family lost a husband to Giuseppina, a father to sons Angelo (Pam) and Tony (Linda), a grandfather to Bryan and Kimberley and a great-grandfather to Kyeler and Lexi. He is survived by brothers Giovannino (Maria), Michele (Anna) and Felice (Denia) and sister Vincenzella (Nicolino) in Italy. He will also be dearly missed by his many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his brother Tony (Delores) Viani. To his many Canadian friends he was known simply as ³Joe². Joe came to Canada in 1962 to make a better life for his family. 4 years later his wife and two small children joined him to reunite his famiglia. Joe worked at Nord Precast for many years and later began his 20 year commitment to Canbra Foods. Joe loved sharing meals with his family and friends. He took great pride in making his renowned homemade wine. To his close friends in the Italian community in his new country he was affectionately called ³Peppe². He was very proud of his heritage regularly attending functions with his paesans in the Italian Canadian Club where he loved to dance and be the life of the party. Perhaps his favorite hobby was devoting endless hours tending to his vegetable and flower gardens. The back yard was a sight to behold with a perfectly manicured lawn, rows of vegetables, varieties of flowers, apple trees and a spectacular canopy of grapes. Joe¹s strong love and devotion for his family was evident early in his young life in Civitanova del Sannio. He was born February 10, 1930, married February 14, 1955 and shortly after his second child was born, he sacrificed watching his young children grow up to move half a world away on his own to create a better life and future for his family. He travelled back to the old country many times to visit his extended family and tour around the country. Giuseppe ³Joe² ³Peppe² Viani had a full life and was taken away from us sadly just shy of his 60th wedding anniversary. A Prayer Service will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME – 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 7:00 P.M. with Len & Sandy Whyte officiating.
