Marion graduated in 1943 at Guelph, ON, as a nurse and came to Magrath in 1944 where she worked and later became matron of the hospital for 17 years.

The family would like to thank the staff of Greystoke’s for their excellent care and love. Because of their service Marion’s wish of being able to stay in her own home was fulfilled.

She was predeceased by her son Brian Hayden, daughter Shari Smith, parents Annie and Tony Bugajski and brother-in-law Gordon Simonson.
Anne was born in Mapleleaf in the Crowsnest Pass, where she lived until she was twelve years old. She then moved with her parents to Shaughnessy to live on the farm. Anne went to school in Nobleford where she met her husband and soulmate Jack Hayden. They just celebrated their sixty fourth wedding anniversary.
Her family was her most important love, whether it was holidays, reunions or birthdays, being together meant the world to her. She loved having them visit, but just don’t wrestle in the living room, her all time rule! Anne was always there for all the kids, whether watching hockey, going to grads, weddings or any major achievements, you could count on Nanny.
She was strong and organized, always planning or participating in any functions, whether it was for the Vauxhall Royal Canadian Legion, Vauxhall TOPS, Vauxhall Seniors or Minor Hockey at any level, she was at the front of the line. Planning military wist tournaments was her passion in later years. She held many positions, such as president, secretary, treasurer and even league statistician in any or all of the above.
Anne found her twenty one years as school secretary at St. Mary’s School, very dear to her heart. To this day, many former students will stop for a chat or tell stories of their experience with Mrs. Hayden.
She also enjoyed her crafts, ceramics, crotcheting and best of all cross stitching. Each grandchild was presented with a special one of a kind cross stitched wedding announcement. These will certainly be cherished forever.
Anne was so proud of her induction into the Alberta Hockey Hall of Fame, received for all her hard work and dedication to the sport of hockey, both locally and provincially. Many hours were spent at a hockey rink around the province, especially watching her own children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren as of late.
Many summer weekends were spent enjoying family and friends at their lot at the Cowley Boat Club. How she loved people stopping for a visit. Camping was truly another passion of hers.
Even though her passing was sudden, she was surrounded by many family, the room was full, we know she would have loved that. She will always be with us, so many memories. We will miss you Nanny. Love forever.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Anne’s name may be made directly to the Vauxhall Seniors, P.O. Box 751, Vauxhall, Alberta T0K 2K0.
Arrangements in care of Southland Funeral Chapel, Taber. Telephone: (403) 223-8778.

Mr. Enzo Piccini

1934 – 2016

ENZO PICCINI, 81, of Lethbridge AB, passed away peacefully on Monday, March 14, 2016 at St. Michael’s Palliative Care.

Enzo was born in Michel, BC on November 15, 1934 and was the fourth son of Peter and Elvira Piccini. His family moved shortly thereafter to Creston which became their childhood home. During this time, he developed his great love for sports, strong sense of community and most of all, his deep love and commitment to family and friends.

He met his loving wife in Creston in 1954 at a dance where he saw her playing piano. He knew right away that she was the one. They were married in Cranbrook on June 29, 1957 and soon after they settled in Lethbridge.

Enzo joined Mutual Life (Sun Life) as a life Insurance underwriter until his retirement in 2008. He was one of the hardest working and dedicated individuals, highly respected by all of his co-workers. His career also took him and his family on many trips across North America where they shared unforgettable experiences that became precious memories.

His love of sports led to many days spent at the YMCA playing racquet ball and golfing at Henderson Lake. With friends, he shared countless laughs and fun. Enzo and Verdelle also had a great appreciation for music and theatre as well as enjoyed all of their trips to Whitefish and Phoenix.

Enzo loved the Lethbridge community becoming a member of the Lions Club where he won the Melvin Jones Fellowship award, the highest form of recognition for becoming a model of exemplary service to his club and the community.

Enzo was a gentle man of few words but his charisma and positive outlook led to an overwhelming number of life-long friends that he treasured as much as his family. Their generous support shown throughout his life including the latter part, was a gift that he appreciated more than words can say.

His exemplary character was most evident though in his role as a loving and supportive husband, father and grandfather. Each member of his family and extended family held a special place in his heart and his eyes would light up every time one of them entered the room. His genuine affection, warmth, infectious laugh as well as his love for life shined thru his every action. He made each of us feel like we were #1 and could accomplish anything we wanted knowing he would be there to encourage and cheer us on. He was always there thru thick and thin – our steady and solid ROCK.

Enzo is survived by his loving wife Verdelle, daughters Susan (Darwin Sauer) and Ciana (Marlon Montoute), grandchildren Brendon, Matthew, Jarrett and Quincey Sauer, step grandson Kevin Loman (Sage), brother in-law Dean and countless nephews and nieces. He was predeceased by his parents, brothers Joseph, Aurelio (Slim) and Orlando (Pic) and in-laws Harry and Eleanor Thompson.

The family would like to say thank you to Dr. Benke, Dr. Shields, Dr. Leam and all of the staff at the Palliative Care facility for their kindness, dedication and compassion with Enzo.

Family and friends are invited to pay their respects between 4:00pm-5:00pm on Sunday, March 20, 2016 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610 4th Street South, Lethbridge.

She is lovingly remembered by her two boys, Merlin (Lavern) Red Young Man and Justin (Krystal) Aberdeen; adopted son Todd Red Young Man; grandchildren: Ally, Brandon, Anthony, Skyler, Tanisha, Elijah, Sara, Cassius and Teylin, Blake, and her brand new addition, baby boy Brendan; her adopted father, Gilbert Provost; sisters: Gloria (Gary) Red Young Man, Jerriann and Carlene Hammond; adopted sisters: Mae and Doreen (Stanley) Red Young Man; brothers: Charles (Jenny) and Grant Red Young Man; adopted brothers: Lee and Ira (Ruth) Provost, Phillip (Myrna), Jimmy and Edward Red Young Man; her two aunts: Louise English and Catherine Crow Eagle as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Brenda grew up in various foster homes in her early years. She attended St. Mary’s Boarding School then later went on to Pincher Creek Canyon School to finish up her elementary grades. She went to Piikani School until she married her first husband then lived on the Peigan Reserve. She then moved to Lethbridge, AB where she raised her two older children, Sonny and Christina Red Young Man. Later, she met her second husband and moved her family to the Standoff Reserve where she had Ashley, Amanda and Justin. She eventually moved her family back to Lethbridge where she met the love of her life, Norman Calf Robe. Norman took her children as his own and helped her raise them. Brenda never moved back to the reserve as Lethbridge became her home up until her passing. She loved her children and her family with a big heart. Brenda had a lot of friends in Lethbridge and surrounding areas. She enjoyed laughing and was always joking around with everyone she knew and loved. Brenda was shy and if you knew her, you would see her bashfulness when she had to speak to someone that wasn’t related to her. Her biggest accomplishment was the love for her family; she was very easy to talk to and the one person that we could all be ourselves around. Brenda loved us all unconditionally and had a special bond with each and every one of her family and friends. She will be forever missed and not ever forgotten.
