January 7, 1962 – March 13, 2016

Sharie Delene Cousins-Markle, born January 7, 1962, in Fort St. John, BC, died peacefully after her third and very hard battle with breast cancer, on Sunday, March 13, 2016 in Claresholm, Alberta.

Sharie leaves behind her husband Collin Markle, step-children Claire and Logan; parents Kay and Orvan Cousins; sister Sandy (Steve) Hiebert, nephew Shayden, niece Staysha, and many much-loved cousins, aunts and uncles.

Sharie cherished life, family, friends, learning and teaching. After high school, she attended Canadian Lutheran Bible Institute in Camrose. In 1985, determined to obtain a career as a Fish and Wildlife Officer, she attended Lakeland College and then Lethbridge College. In 1989 she achieved her dream career as the second female Fish and Wildlife Officer in Alberta, working first in the Crowsnest Pass and then in Lethbridge. In 2001 Sharie left the Fish and Wildlife Division to teach future Fish and Wildlife officers at Lethbridge College. While teaching and battling cancer, Sharie attained her Masters Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of the Fraser Valley. Along with a strong devotion to her career, Sharie gave much of her time and talents to a variety of activities such as cowboy poetry, dragon boat racing, rock hounding, camping, horse riding/packing, and playing leadership roles in many student and faculty clubs and events. Her artistic talents were endless; she enjoyed bird carving, beading, painting, lapidary, photography, and so much more. Music also played a huge part in Sharie’s life; she played the piano and organ as a youngster, then for her first job, and then at the Peace Lutheran Church where she and Collin attended.

Sharie was a devoted wife, daughter, sister, cousin, auntie, and friend. She touched the lives of every person she spoke to and made friends everywhere she went. She will be deeply missed.

A Memorial Service will be held at the Claresholm Community Centre (corner of 8th Street and 59th Avenue West, Claresholm) on Saturday, March 26, 2016 at 2:00 pm.

We announce with sorrow the passing of LeRon Franklin Low, of Coaldale, on Friday March 11. His wife and five children are left to mourn his loss, but celebrate his great life. Ron was the oldest son and third child of Solon Earl Low and Alice Fern Litchfield. He was predeceased by sisters Lorna, Jesse, Carol and Sharon, and is survived by brothers Morton, Ken and Eric. Growing up in southern Alberta, Edmonton and Ottawa, LeRon was deeply influenced by his politician father and his widespread family. He was well-rounded and accomplished- but always modest. He took to music and sports but his passion was people- always people- as any who knew him would attest. LeRon attended the University of Utah- graduating in pharmacy in 1950, newly married to a pretty Utah girl– E. Jeanne Bagley. He persuaded her to give Canada a try, and she set off on a wonderful adventure with this witty and gentle Canadian. By 1961, the family had arrived at their present home- Coaldale. LeRon was active in professional, civic and church service. He served on school board, town council and as interim mayor. He was the first bishop of the Coaldale LDS ward. He organized and coached sports- especially basketball and slo-pitch. He loved playing piano and organ. His chosen profession would become a cherished opportunity to serve. Many will remember him as the purveyor of Low’s Pharmacy on main street, and later as manager of the Woodward’s pharmacy. The golden years were sweet- church missions leading to a role as temple sealer. Many young couples were married by Grandpa Low- including most of his grandchildren. He would consider this his life’s greatest blessing. All the while he was building legacy and teaching about marriage and family. LeRon and Jeanne were blessed with five children. Kathy Galbraith, Patricia & Neil Harker, Richard & Gayle Low, George Low and Steven & Jayne Low. Eventually 29 grandchildren followed and now there are 48 great-grandchildren. Numerous in-laws total this posterity at 107. He was able to visit with most of them in his final days. His death, like his life, was noble and joyous. We know he has gone to prepare mansions ahead. Through unspeakable pain and constant treatments, he remained gracious and kind. LeRon had confided once to a granddaughter that his life’s goal was to never become a grumpy old man. Mission accomplished, Grandpa! He knew that kindness begets kindness. We thank all those who cared for, and nurtured him: Dr Stan Benke, the incomparable staff at the Regional Hospital – especially on 5a.- and the Sunny South lodge, Dr Eric Mueller, all of Ron’s special friends in the outpatient/dayPro departments. We thank the generous blood donors who sustained this life for 7 years. You know who you are. If you could have known this man! He loved you all. Pharmacist, sportsman, musician and coach–bishop, sealer, patriarch and grandfather. Ron was 88. He was, is and ever will be our family’s hero. Funeral service- Saturday March 19, 2:00. Meet the family, 1:00- Coaldale Ward building, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints- 2216, 21a Ave. Interment that morning, 10:00 am, Cardston cemetery
