DEVINE
The creator called home KYLE OSBORN DEVINE on April 28, 2015 along with his girlfriend Clarissa Michelle English and her brother Dakota Julius English.
Kyle was born at the Foothills Hospital, Calgary, on December 17, 1987. He is survived by his loving parents Allen “Boyie” and Kristi Devine; brothers and sisters Geronimo (Kerri); Nathan; Ian (Melissa); and their children Kiara, Treyton and Derozen; Clifford; Erin “MaryJane”, Tamara (Safraz) and their children Joseph, Aisha and Amirah and Angel. Surviving paternal uncles and aunts are Homer (Gloria), Bruno (Shelley), Edna, Alice (Bernie), Rena and Agnes (Johnny), and maternal uncles and aunts Brent, Daniel (Randa), Wesley (Jody), Shelley, Noreen (Wes) Julie (Thomas), Beverly (Rick), and Sandra (Jason). He is also survived by his loving adopted parents Gary and Mary Allison.
He was predeceased by his loving mother Jaqueline Crazy Bull (’07), maternal grandparents John and Stella Crazy Bull, paternal grandparents Mike Sr. and Mary Devine, best friend/brother Allen Joshua (’08), triplet siblings Clayton, Clinton & Bonnie, paternal aunts Maryanne Smith and Dorothy Devine; paternal uncles Michael Devine Jr. and Gabriel “Gabby” Devine, maternal aunts Yvonne, Joanne, Marlene and Darlene Crazy Bull. In addition, Kyle has relatives all over the Blackfoot Confederacy; he was part of a huge family.
Kyle was a gentle young man, full of the joy of living. His Blackfoot heritage was a huge source of pride and he smiled from ear to ear when his Dad (Boyie) told him he was a direct descendent of Chief Red Crow. He was a talented grass dancer and once followed the powwow trail. He took great pride in his appearance, grooming carefully and choosing his clothing meticulously. The Chicago Bulls were his favourite team and he frequently wore caps and shirts sporting their logo. Kyle played basketball for his Coalhurst school and loved many other sports. Watching horse racing with foster Dad, Gary, was a cherished activity. He also loved the outdoors; he and best friend Jamie loved to hike when and wherever they could.
Kyle was a loving and devoted Uncle who doted on his nieces and nephews. He was the first to visit and hold nephew Derozen after his birth, even beating out the eager Grampa Allen. Kyle was extremely generous; he had a talent for picking out the perfect gift. His gentle and kind-hearted nature was evident in everything Kyle did and family members were amazed to realize that they never saw Kyle lose his temper. His gentle nature was obvious when Kyle interacted with animals, especially dogs, which were very important in his life.
Kyle was a very hard worker. He was employed at Flexahopper where he impressed with his diligence and received several promotions. The management of Flexahopper even lowered their flag to half mast when they heard about Kyle’s passing. His quiet charisma and humorous way of telling stories attracted people to Kyle who quickly trusted and befriended him.
Kyle will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. There are no words for “Good-bye” in the Blackfoot language; instead people say “Kitaakitamattsino”, which translates “See you again”. We know we will see Kyle again when he welcomes us into the heavenly place he now calls home.

WEILER
JULIET WEILER, beloved wife of the late Fred Weiler, of Lethbridge, passed away peacefully at St. Therese Villa on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at the age of 99 years.
She is the loving mother of Marilynne Tremel of Lethbridge, AB, Gerry (Jane) Weiler of Vancouver, B.C., David Weiler (Cynthia Radford) of Calgary, AB, Betty Weiler (Brian Alston) of Australia, Bill (Maria) Weiler of Lethbridge, AB and daughter-in-law Cheryl Weiler of Lethbridge AB as well as 10 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Florence Turri of Calgary, AB and numerous nieces and nephews.
Juliet is predeceased by her husband Fred, son Jim, son-in-law Casper Tremel, two sisters Frances Koole & Evelyn Lundgren and infant brother Romeo.
Juliet was born February 3, 1916 in Medicine Hat, Alberta, the eldest daughter of Antonio and Virginia Zanin. After completing high school in Medicine Hat and teacher training at the Calgary Normal School, she taught at southern Alberta one-room schools near Bow Island and Milk River. Juliet married Fred Weiler in 1940, and the following year they moved to L’Ancienne Lorette, now a suburb of Quebec City, to support the war effort. After the war, they returned to teaching in southern Alberta, living in Warner, Cardston and Taber before settling in Lethbridge. During this time, Juliet was devoted to raising their 6 children. She enjoyed working as a substitute teacher and teaching grade one and volunteered a great deal of her time to the Girl Guides and the Catholic Women’s League. She was always willing to serve when asked, such as when she took on the role of camp mother at Camp Columbus in Waterton, despite her fear of bears. In 1967, the family moved to Camrose, where for five years Juliet taught special needs children. This is the work that brought her the greatest satisfaction – her great patience and ability to listen made her well loved, and ex-students continued to correspond with her for many years after she retired. Her volunteer work with the Girl Guides and CWL continued in Camrose and she became president of the Bethany Ladies Auxiliary, supporting local nursing home residents through fundraising and volunteer activities. Juliet cherished her many friends and was an avid bridge player and square dancer. She loved having music in the family, making sure each of her children learned an instrument. She enjoyed singing with the Sweet Adelines, and playing clarinet in the Camrose Community Band. She always made her children’s friends feel welcome in her home, even to the extent of tolerating regular rock band practice. Juliet was passionate about gardening and also enjoyed attracting birds to her yard. In their later years, Juliet and Fred moved back to Lethbridge to be close to family there, including several grandchildren and great-grandchildren, whose company she cherished. For the last seven years of her life, Juliet was a resident of St. Therese Villa, where the staff and residents enjoyed her teasing and her positive attitude. Mom was a very honest and caring person, a wonderful big sister, devoted wife for 65 years, mother, grandmother and a friend to all who knew her.
A Prayer Service will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB on Monday, May 11, 2015 at 7:00 P.M. with Deacon Cliff Bogdan, Officiant.
