CAMPAGNOLA

ELIZABETH CAMPAGNOLA (nee Couch), beloved wife of Louis Campagnola, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 21, 2015 at the age of 84.

She is survived by her husband and three children, Gary (Debbie) Campagnola of Edmonton, Diane (Kerry) O’Bray of Calgary, and Christine (Doran) Anderson of Lethbridge. She is also survived by her brother Derek (Lois) Couch of Sudbury, Ontario and son in law Gord Jones of Chestermere. She was predeceased by her parents, Thomas and Phyllis Couch, two sisters, Pamela Couch and Audrey James, a daughter, Judy Jones, a son Kevin Campagnola and daughter-in-law, Pat Campagnola. She was blessed with 11 grandchildren, and 18 great- grandchildren who will all miss her unconditional love and her candy drawer.

She loved flowers, knitting, reading books and family time. Her membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was evident in the way she lived. Her example will live as a legacy for the generations that follow. She loved to serve in her callings, particularly as a Gospel Doctrine teacher, and leading choirs in her younger years. A highlight for her and her husband was serving a mission in Salt Lake City at the Family History Center.

We will miss her, but are so grateful she is at peace, and reunited with loved ones who welcome her return to her heavenly home.

SHEETS

1926 – 2015

JANETTE ALEXANDRA MCLEAN SHEETS, (nee Munro) beloved wife of the late Melvin Lee Sheets of Lethbridge, passed away peacefully at the Coaldale Health Centre, on Wednesday, July 22, 2015 at the age of 89 years.

She is survived by her children David (Phyllis) Sheets of Sparwood BC, Alyson (Ben) Fink of Canmore, Janet (Paul) Ennis of Calgary, Neil Sheets (Marda Schindeler) of Lethbridge, seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren. She is also survived by sisters Hyacinthe Wade-Howard (Lou Howard) of Ottawa and Anne Atwood of Vancouver, sisters-in-law Lucille Munro of Everett WA, Lura Mae Porkka of Lethbridge and Maxine Porkka of Red Deer. Janette is also survived by “Oma” Erna Bogdan and “Auntie” Doris Balcovske.

She was predeceased by her loving husband Mel, brother James “Jim” Munro, and brothers-in-law Ernie Wade, Ernie Porkka, and Roy Porkka.

Janette was born on April 24, 1926, the second of four children born to Alexander and Rhodina Munro of Calgary. As a child, Janette loved school, was a dedicated Girl Guide, enjoyed track and field and was a competitive highland dancer.

In 1943, she graduated from Central High school in Calgary, attended Normal School for three months and then began her teaching career in a one room school near Rocky Mountain House, Alberta at the age of seventeen.

After several other teaching assignments, Janette was teaching at Barhill School, where she met Melvin Sheets. They were married on June 20, 1947 in Calgary. Mel and Janette bought a half section of irrigated land eight miles north of Picture Butte and farmed there until 1973. Janette continued to teach and help with the farm while raising four children. After many years teaching in the County of Lethbridge, Janette was chosen to set up many of the school libraries in the County, during the late 1960s. She then attended the newly opened University of Lethbridge and completed her Bachelor of Education with Great Distinction in 1973.

Mel’s health took a turn for the worse and the family moved to Lethbridge in 1973 where Janette, after a short stint as a real estate agent, took a faculty position at the Lethbridge Community College. Janette ran the Developmental Studies Centre at the College for fourteen years. She and her staff touched many lives through their work developing and delivering individualized upgrading programs to help thousands of LCC students succeed. In 1990, she received a Leadership Award from the Association of Canadian Community Colleges for her work at the College. She was also nominated for a Women of Distinction award during this period.

Janette retired from the College in 1991 and became active in numerous organizations in the city including the University Women’s Club, United Church Women, Ladies of Kiwanis, Meals on Wheels, the Lethbridge Soup Kitchen and many other organizations. She loved to read, travel and to attend community events, concerts and theatre.

The family would like to thank all of the dedicated, friendly, and professional staff at the Coaldale Long Term Care Centre, Columbia Assisted Living, the GARU and ER units at Chinook Regional Hospital, the PARP and Bridges programs at St. Michael’s and all the other caregivers, medical staff, and physicians who have helped care for Janette as her health declined over the last few years.

A Celebration of Janette’s Life will be held at MCKILLOP UNITED CHURCH, 2329 – 15 Ave South, Lethbridge on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at 2:00 P.M. with Reverend Aldeen McKay officiating.

Following the Celebration of Janette’s Life, friends and family are invited to stay for a reception in the church hall.

STANNARD – Bruce Allen
