Carl was born at Brant Colony and lived there during his early childhood. As an older child, he grew up at Mialta Colony. He was a very hard worker, working in farming, oil and gas, mining and driving. His childhood dream of driving semi was his main career. In his 203, he chose to be a father. He always put his son before himself ever after and was a best friend in every way to his boy. He spent every day he didn’t work with his son and often took his son to work. He achieved his dream job at the company he always wanted to work at, Randa Transport where he will be missed and drove a truck he was proud to drive. He greeted strangers and friends alike with a smile, nod and hello. Carl didn’t ask anyone for anything and when he was given to, was always humble and grateful.

Jean Moreland

1933 – 2015

Our hearts are broken and it seems as though even the angels are weeping. A beautiful, gentle soul left this earth and entered the garden of the Lord. Our angel, Margaret Jean (Jean), beloved wife of the late John Moreland, passed away in Auckland, New Zealand on March 8, 2015 while on vacation in Fiji. Left to cherish her memory are her daughters Charlene (Jarel Nelson), Joanne (Harry Critchley), Beverley (Tim Gross); her grandchildren Bradley and Alyssa Critchley, Brodie (Kerry), Colton (Jenny) and Sydney Gross and one great- grandchild, Kinley Gross. She also leaves to mourn her passing her brother Ken (Shirley) Markland, her sister Audrey (Jack) Fetzko and their respective families, and many, many friends. Mom was born and raised in Fernie, B.C. She moved to Lethbridge to attend the Galt School of Nursing graduating 1956. While there, she met the love of her life. John and Jean were married on a snowy day in Fernie on January 12, 1957. For 33 amazing years, they together experienced the ups and downs of life on the farm, raised and educated a family, discovered the paradise of winters in Fiji and established a wide-reaching circle of incredible friends. Through all of the many memorable family trips whether to Waterton, Disneyland, or Fiji, touring with the antique car, hauling us around to horse shows, snowmobiling, or just keeping us all well-fed and watered, Mom was an enthusiastic participant. After Dad’s passing in 1990, she remained on the farm until October 2014, when she moved into her beautiful condo in Lethbridge. She loved her family unconditionally and was proudly supportive of all our endeavors and achievements. She would always see the bright side of things and had a way of making those around her feel special. Her concern and compassion for others was heartfelt and genuine. She was as strong and independent (yes, I do want a new car!) as she was gentle and thoughtful (are you sure you’re O.K?). She enjoyed her gardening, especially her flowers, which always seemed to respond to her gentle touch and TLC. She was fond of cross-word puzzles and Sudoku (gotta keep the mind up!), liked to watch the birds especially the owls fly through the trees (just not in the house please!) and appreciated phone calls and visits from friends and family. She was a beautiful and dignified woman who celebrated life each day. We all miss you more than words can say. We love you mom. Cremation has taken place. A private family interment will be held in the Wrentham Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00pm on Friday, March 20, 2015 at the ST. AUGUSTINE’S ANGLICAN CHURCH, 411-11 Street South, Lethbridge, Alberta with Canon Allan McCuaig, officiating. As mom supported numerous charities, in lieu of flowers you may consider donations to a charity of your choice. Visit http://www.mbfunerals.com to send a private condolence.
