Esther How

1925 – 2016

Esther (Kwai Shin) How (nee Yue) passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 16, 2016. Esther was born, raised, and educated in Hong Kong. After post-secondary training, she taught physical education at the elementary and high school levels and went on to work in an administrative capacity for the Ministry of Health in Hong Kong. She met and married her husband, Roy How, in 1950 during his extended stay in Hong Kong. Following their marriage, they moved to Taber, Alberta, Roy’s home town. The resulting cultural, economic, and geographical shift presented significant challenges but Esther’s indomitable spirit rose magnificently to meet them. Importantly, her commitment to God gave her strength and security in joyful and troublesome times. Esther had a strong faith in God’s goodness and His divine intervention in her life, and enthusiastically shared this with those whose lives she touched. After Esther and Roy moved to Lethbridge in 1977, the congregation at Park Meadows Baptist became a community that was an ever constant support in her devotion to God.

Esther was a devoted wife to Roy, and they journeyed over 40 years together through good times and bad, particularly in his last years when he faced numerous medical crises. Esther’s greatest joy was her four children, Angela, Rachel, Benjamin (Sandra), and Jennifer, of whom she was very proud. She was a fiercely dedicated mom willing to sacrifice all to promote their health, welfare, and future success. Her grandchildren were also a source of great pride and she supported and championed each one of them.

In addition to her involvement with her family, Esther enjoyed several other interests. Esther and Roy travelled extensively across the globe, which left her with many memorable experiences. Esther had a flair for artistic creativity and throughout her life dabbled in various art forms, creating original and unique projects.

In her fifties, Esther discovered a passion for traditional Chinese black ink and watercolour painting. Her talent was immediately obvious and a number of her paintings were purchased by the Lethbridge Regional Hospital, the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, and numerous private collectors. She was especially honoured and thrilled that the Alberta Art Foundation chose to purchase one of her paintings for their collection. Her family was and still is extremely proud of her talent and the commitment she demonstrated to developing herself as an artist.

Esther was predeceased by her husband Roy and an infant son Jonathan. She is survived by her loving children and six grandchildren, Laura, Aaron, Nathan, Linnae, David and Lindsay. Mom will be deeply missed by her entire family, but they are comforted by the fact she is now at peace in the loving arms of God.

Esther’s family wishes to thank the nursing staff and the hospitalists at the Chinook Regional Hospital for their compassionate and expert care. They also wish to thank Greystoke Home Health for their services which allowed Esther to be cared for at home until her last months of life. Finally, they wish to thank Dr. Mona Cassis, her family doctor, for her many years of care.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610-4 St. S., Lethbridge, AB.

In lieu of flowers, a donation in memory of Esther can be made to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

LAUGHLIN

HAROLD REECE LAUGHLIN, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather passed away in Lethbridge on Friday, January 15, 2016 at the age of 87. Harold is survived by his devoted wife, Marion, his daughter and son-in-law, Cheri and Larry Langhofer and their children Tracey (Troy) Thompson and Shane (Telsa Riley) Langhofer, and his pride and joy, great grandchildren Taylor and Tanner Thompson and Nash Langhofer. He is also survived by his two sons, Gary of Vancouver and Hal of Lethbridge. Dad was born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan and moved to Lethbridge in 1950 to pursue his career in the auto body industry and worked for several local shops before retiring in 1992. He was a very hard worker and took pride in a job well done. After his retirement Dad and Mom enjoyed spending time with their great grandchildren and working in the yard. He always looked forward to spring when he and Mom could plant their garden and he was able to do this until just a few years ago. Harold was a good man with a wonderful sense of humor who lived his life on this earth well. He worked hard, provided for his family and knew how to enjoy what he had. He was a kind and generous man who loved to have the house full of people and he and Mom had an amazing 65 years together. He loved his family, was loved in return and even though we will miss him greatly we have many wonderful memories. Cremation has taken place and a family celebration of life will be held at a later date.

TREBER Sharon Elaine Treber (nee Grismer)

March 4 1950 – January 15 2016

Sharon Elaine Treber, beloved wife of Bill Treber passed away at LRH on January 15, 2016 at the age of 65. Sharon was born in the Galt hospital in Lethbridge to Stella and Joseph Grismer. She was predeceased by both her parents and her brother Kelly Douglas Grismer. She is survived by her husband Bill. She attended Winston Churchill High School and after graduation worked in the banking field for a number of years. She rose through the ranks, and transferred to Calgary for management training, but found she did not like the city living. Sharon was an avid skier, and her family had a cabin they called the Shack at Beaver Mines near Westcastle. She left Calgary and lived at the Shack and worked in Pincher Creek doing park maintenance, then worked at the ski hill in various positions. She moved back to Lethbridge and worked for the City of Lethbridge in the Parks department. She was very proud of her involvement in the Urban Parks project, developing the parks and trail systems in Lethbridge. When the parks project ended, she went to the City’s Out of School program. In 1996 her health problems forced her to leave work. Sharon volunteered on the Canadian Ski Patrol for many years at Westcastle. This was part of her lifelong desire to help other people. She skied from 1970 to the mid 80’s. Again her health forced her to give up skiing. She loved flowers and together with Bill, maintained their yard as their private park. She also loved pets and animals, and is sadly missed by her dog Mattie and cat Boogie. Winter bird feeding was standard and Shar would remind Bill to “feed our birds”. She became wheelchair bound in 2010, and as soon as she was able, was out and about town on her red power chair. She loved to shop and go to Starbucks and Chapters for a coffee break. She inspired everyone she met with her indomitable spirit, sense of humour and cheerfulness despite her life-long battle with Scleroderma. Sharon was most appreciative of the help she received from so many compassionate home care workers and other medical personnel over the years. Sharon loved flowers, but would also appreciate if donations were made to the Scleroderma Society of Canada. The Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. at CHRISTENSEN SALMON GENERATIONS FUNERAL HOME, 703-13 Street North, Lethbridge, with Reverend Canon Erin Phillips officiating. A viewing will be held prior to the service from 1:00 to 1:45 p.m.
