Madeleine Jobidon Cormier

1917 – 2017

Artist, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, photographer, gourmet chef and avid landscaper – true practitioner of Carpe diem.

Madeleine, the eldest daughter of Gustave and Eva Vandry Jobidon, passed on December 10, 2017 in St. Michael’s Palliative Care, after a long and full life in Lethbridge. She was married to Dr. Louis-Phillippe Cormier (Modern Languages, University of Lethbridge) who sadly passed in 2001. Madeleine is survived by one brother Louis Jobidon (Quebec city) and one sister, Josette Caya (Longueuil, MTL) as well as, her daughters Louise M. Cormier (David ‘Obrien, grandsons Aidan Cormier O’Brien and Olivier Cormier O’Brien and wife Jenn Liddell, Lethbridge) and Sylvie M. Cormier (Paul J.K. Smith, grandsons Winston Cormier-Smith, wife Kristy Closs, daughters Alexis Cormier-Smith and Isla Cormier-Smith of Airdrie, grandson Owen Cormier- Smith). Madeleine spent her early years in the small town of Chateau Richer, nestled between the coastal mountains and the St. Laurence River not far from Quebec City. She fondly remembered the fields, forests and rivulets that surrounded her, and they remained a source of inspiration for her throughout life. She was educated in Quebec City at the Couvent des SS. De St. Joseph de St. Vallier and the newly opened École des Beaux Arts in Quebec City (1937). After finishing, she continued working in the arts as a graphic designer and painter until her marriage in 1946 to Louis-Phillippe. She was a life-long learner in the visual arts and especially enjoyed her summers in Paris while Louis taught summer school to students from Michigan State University. In 1968, Madeleine made the move to Lethbridge where they built their dream home. In the west, Madeleine continued practicing her photography but was now smitten with the wide open spaces and the formidable plays of light which led to greater abstraction. She was also a lifelong member of ACFA (French Association) and the SAAG and firmly believed it was important to support cultural organisations as they support the non-mundane treasures of life. Good fortune smiled on Madeleine as she lived on her own until the age of 98 – the way she liked it. However, she needed help in managing daily living, she came to live with her daughter Louise. During these later years she was especially thankful for help from Marilou. We would like to offer our profound thanks to St. Michael’s, to Home Care (especially Carol Hudson, Marilou, Bambi and the many who helped), the ER and finally, St. Michael’s Palliative Care (especially Dr. Smuts and the many nurses and assistants who showed genuine care). Thank you. A Funeral Service will be held at 1:00pm on Friday, December 15, 2017, at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610 – 4th Street South, Lethbridge, Alberta with Reverend Eva Stanley, officiating. Interment to follow in the Mountain View Cemetery.

FIELDING

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather, DONALD IMRIE ANDERSON FIELDING, at the Claresholm Health Centre, on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at the age of 70 years.

Donald was born in Blackpool, England and spent most of his formative years in the Lake District. He immigrated to Canada in January of 1969, settling in the Toronto area. He met his wife Anne in November of that year, and they were married three months later. Their first son Chris was born in 1976, and their twin sons Michael and Andrew followed in 1979.

Donald’s flying career spanned many decades and continents starting with P.W.A. as a Second Officer in 1973, then continuing on with Canadian Airlines and finally retiring as Captain on the 767 with Air Canada in 2007.

Donald’s quick, quirky humour was legendary and usually caught most people off guard. No matter how long he knew someone, he always seemed to make a lasting impression. His fun-loving ways will be missed by all his family and friends.

He is survived by his loving wife, Anne, son Chris (Jackie) and their children Clara, Harrison and Hanna; and son Michael and his son Daniel. He will be especially missed by his daughter-in-love, Tina, and also by Carmen and Mel; nieces, nephews and numerous family relations.

Donald was predeceased by his parents, his sister Carole and son Andrew. Donald is now walking on streets of gold, glorifying the Lord and being repeatedly subjected to his mother-in-law’s poetry!!!

A Celebration of Donald’s Life will be held at THIRD DAY CHURCH, #90, 550 WT Hill Blvd. South, Lethbridge, AB, on Saturday, December 16, 2017 at 11:00 A.M. with Pastor Dick Deweert officiating. A Private Family Interment at Mountain View Cemetery will precede the service.

In lieu of flowers and in memory of Donald, donations may be made to Dominion Broadcasting Society, c/o Third Day Church, #90, 550 WT Hill Blvd. South, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 4Z9.
