Alida Hess

1936 – 2017

Mrs. Alida Hess of Lethbridge passed away surrounded by loving family on August 18, 2017 at the age of 80, at Chinook Regional Hospital. She was born in Sneek in the Netherlands on September 1, 1936 to a mother who died of cancer 6 months later. She was the youngest of 11. Her father encouraged her to move to Canada, so at 20 she bravely left on her own and made a life for herself here. She met her beloved husband Fred while working in the Dominion Stores Bakery in Calgary. They married in 1959. Together they owned several businesses; the best known was ‘Fred’s Bakery’ in Lethbridge. She and Fred lived on a small farm in Sunnyside where she hosted Pancake Breakfast trail rides, Easter Egg Hunts, weddings, and many foreign visitors. She loved to cook and entertain. Since Fred’s passing in 2015, life was difficult for Alida. She was also predeceased by her 10 siblings. She leaves behind her daughters Jacqueline (Gordon), Ingrid, and Monica (Anthony); grandchildren Heather, Jennifer, and Dustin Kuhl, Remko, Apollo, and Til Hess, Ryan and Kali Sayers. At her request, there will be no service. Those who wish may make memorial donations to: The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT, P.O. Box 4500, Station South, Edmonton, Alberta, T6E 6K2.

Grant Kristjanson

1943 – 2017

Mr. Grant Kristjanson of Lethbridge, beloved husband of Mrs. Elaine Kristjanson, passed away at St. Michael’s Palliative Care on Sunday, August 20, 2017 at the age of 74 years. Grant leaves to cherish his memory his wife, Elaine, and daughters Donna Ackerman (Mike) of Lethbridge and Karen Mason of Calgary. He is also survived by his grandchildren Kevin (Amber) Jordan, Matthew Jordan, Devon Mason and Alexandra Mason. Grant was also so proud to be great-grandpa to Olivia and Hudson Jordan. He will also be missed by his sister Wendy (Lynn) Hayes. Grant was born on March 2, 1943 in Quill Lake, SK to Stan and Mary Kristjanson. He moved with his family to Lethbridge in 1955 where he met friends he remained close to all of his life. He was an original member of the LeBarons Car Club. He was a dedicated employee of 56 years at Enerson Motors/Davis GMC where he continued to work as shuttle driver until his health no longer allowed him to, and he was very proud of his achievements there. Grant and Elaine enjoyed several years travelling to Mesa, AZ in the wintertime, and anywhere they went there wasn’t a classic car show-and-shine or an aviation museum that was missed as those things were his passions. We know Grant was loved by many, but it was his wish to have no funeral service. The family thanks everyone who was so good to us during his illness and for the many, many visitors that came to see dad in hospital. He will be dearly missed and never forgotten. The family wishes to decline the offering of flowers and asks that any donations in Grant’s name be made to St. Michael’s Palliative Care, 1400 9 Ave S, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 4V5.
