May Ann Gollinger (Meers)

June 10, 1960 – August 11, 2017

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother. She passed away peacefully in the Milk River hospital with family by her side.

May is survived by her daughter Laura Gollinger and son Garrett Gollinger; sister Mary (Ray) and their children Ryan and Eric Green.

May enjoyed being a wife and mother. Her daily rituals consisted of walking and her love to knit; both were very therapeutic to her. Many people near and far received her generous knitted socks or a lesson in knitting. She made many friends in the fibre world – they bonded on their love of travel and the search for exquisite yarns took them around the world.

She is predeceased by her parents Clarence and Beryl Meers and husband Terrence Patrick Gollinger.

Those who wish, memorial donations may be made to the Milk River Health Centre, 517 Centre Avenue, Milk River, Alberta T0K 1M0.

A private family graveside service will be held at a later date.
