GOUGH, Sister Francis FCJ (Margaret)

February 19, 2015 ­ Calgary, AB
Sr. Francis (Margaret) Gough, a beloved member of the Sisters Faithful Companions of Jesus (FCJ) for 73 years, died on February 19, 2015 after a blessed 92 years of life. Sr. Francis was born in Okotoks, Alberta on June 21, 1922. She loved her early days on the farm, especially times with her horses. The family later moved to Midnapore. Sr. Francis enjoyed her school years at Father Lacombe School and Sacred Heart Convent. Her great devotion to Mary was evident even in those early years. She entered the convent in Calgary on February 2 1942, received her Teacher Training at Normal School and began her teaching in a grade one classroom. Aside from four years in England and Switzerland, Francis was missioned in Western Canada. She was in primary education ministry until 1978 and also helped out during those years in community with cooking and as infirmarian. In 1978, she went to Lethbridge where she spent many happy and blessed years in ministry in Catholic Central High School Library and in St. Basil¹s Parish. In 2005, Francis returned to Calgary where at Sacred Heart Convent she continued her apostolic endeavors through her letter writing, phoning, cooking and knitting. Sr. Francis was a courageous woman and that was evidenced in the way in which she dealt with her illness and incapacity. She never let her zeal be dampened. Francis had a deep love for her family and rejoiced in having time with them. Family reunions were always very special times for her. She maintained her interest in the people she had ministered to and with, and her prayers were far-reaching. She is survived, and will be sadly missed, by her FCJ community and by her beloved sisters Bernice Williamson, Muriel (Al) Devitt and Eileen (Cookie) Gough and by her cherished nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews and their families. Sr. Francis was pre-deceased by her parents Francis Vivian and Meta (Logan) and by her four brothers, Harold, Patrick, Francis, Walter and sister, Kathleen Halford.

JAKE DOGTEROM
1926 ~ 2015
We are sad to announce the peaceful passing of our father Jake Dogterom on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 at the age of 88 years. Jake is survived by his daughters Coral (Bill) East, Jan (Jim) Kuhn, Nancy Dogterom; son Dave (Donna) Dogterom; seven grandchildren; one great- granddaughter; sister Muriel Zasadny; sisters-in-law Fran Dogterom, Thelma Coutts and Pat (Les) Bull; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and their families. Jake was born in Lethbridge on July 26, 1926 and was one of 7 children. He grew up on the farm east of Lethbridge and brought his wife Irma there in 1950 where they raised their family. Dad worked the farm with his dad Jacob and his brother Ray. In 1988 he and Irma bought a house in Lethbridge but Jake continued to commute to the farm. Jake also golfed, curled and was an active member of the Probus Club. He and Irma square danced for many years and had an enormous circle of friends. They enjoyed traveling and Jake was especially thankful to visit Schoonhoven, Holland where his father was born. Eventually they had to leave their house and make a home in Black Rock Terrace. In spring 2014 Jake was embraced by the caring staff of Legacy Lodge and Home Care. We wish to thank everyone for the exceptional attention he received there. Family and friends were always most important to Jake and he will be greatly missed. A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 pm on Monday, February 23, 2015 at the MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610-4 Street South, Lethbridge, Reverend Eva Stanley, officiating.
