 LOW
Byron Y Low, age 84, left this earth on July 25th, 2015 to return to his heavenly home. His devotion to his family here on earth and his quiet spiritual strength were evident throughout his life and sustained him to the end.
Byron will be deeply missed by his wife of 60 years, LaPriel Butler and his four children, Shelly (Dennis) Hill, Todd (Robbie) Low, Shannon Low, and Desiree (Jeremy) Harris. His 12 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren will miss arm wrestling and playing games with him. He is also survived by his devoted sister, Mildred Jensen.
Byron was born in Cardston, Alberta to Brigham Young Low and Hannah Antris Gedlaman. He was the youngest of 6 children, and will be happy to meet up with 4 of his siblings, Mary, Ross, Doug and Laura who have gone ahead.
Byron graduated from Utah State University in 1960 with a degree in Engineering and could build or fix anything put before him. After 20 years working for Hewlett Packard in the U.S., Byron and LaPriel returned to Lethbridge to start his own business, Hi-Lo Machine and Tool, and to be closer to family. He built a wonderful home in West Lethbridge and they stayed there the remainder of their time, until moving to Claresholm very recently so they could be closer to their daughter, Shelly.
Byron was a hard worker, patient with all and very faithful in his responsibilities within the LDS church. He was generous, happy and loved family times together. He was always the first to offer to help anyone who was in need. He made a difference in the lives of many and will be remembered for his legacy of love, patience and humility.

 Erna Siemens
1934 – 2015
Mrs. Erna Siemens of Coaldale, passed away in Lethbridge on Saturday, July 25, 2015 at the age of 81 years.
Erna was born to George and Helen Barg, March 9, 1934 in Coaldale, Alberta where she lived for all but one of her 81 years. She attended school in Coaldale through grade 9, following which she was sent to work as a live-in housemaid for various families around Southern Alberta. She worked for a time at the Eaton’s lunch counter. On May 20, 1956 she married Peter C. Kopp and they raised four sons (two other children passing at birth). Erna was devoted to her family and was determined to raise sons who knew the values of honesty and hard work despite the limitations of living in town rather than on the farm. They were taught to do laundry, clean properly, help with cooking, and sent to find part-time jobs at 13, in the absence of real farm chores. Once the youngest son was in school, Erna re-entered the work force, first at a flower shop, then Prairie Meats, and then as a cook at the Coaldale Hospital, where she said “I worked for twelve and a half years doing what I love; messing around with food.” During retirement, Erna settled into doing things she loved most, such as blessing others through hospitality and hospital visitation.
Peter and Erna enjoyed 50 years together. Peter passed away in 2006. Erna did not adjust to being a widow very easily, as she had left all aspects of the household, except cooking, to Dad, and she hated driving. During this period, God blessed her with many friends who stood by her. She was both delighted and surprised when Leo Siemens contacted her. Leo and Erna were married on July 18, 2009 and they made a fresh start with great hopes and plans for adventure. These plans suffered a blow when Erna was diagnosed with cancer within five months of their wedding. This began a five and a half year journey that required all of her determination and strength. She passed from this life to the next on July 25, 2015.
She is survived by her husband, Leo and his daughters Lorrie; children Micah & Janna and Elaine (Steve); children Danae (Brayden), Damien, Dezrae and son Mark; sons Lawrence (Wanda), Allen (Allison), Murray (Lorna) and Wes (Ruth) ten grandchildren, Joelle (Bryson) Duda, Jeneva (James) Moxon, Jonathan, Jacquelyn, Qualan, Atlee, Sajal Coral, Alexis and Téa; one great-grandson Atlas; brother Peter; sisters Mary and Dora.
A Visitation will be held from 7:00pm to 8:00pm on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610-4 St. South, Lethbridge, Alberta.
A Graveside Service will be held at 10:00am on Thursday, July 30, 2015 at the Coaldale Cemetery, with a Memorial Service to follow at 11:00am at the COALDALE MENNONITE BRETHREN CHURCH, 2114-18 St., Coaldale, Alberta.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Mennonite Brethren Mission, (#300 – 32040 Downes Road,
Abbotsford, BC V4X 1X5)
