BATTLE

EVELYN LEONA BATTLE, of Lethbridge, beloved wife of the late Russell Battle, passed away peacefully at Martha’s House on December 31, 2017 at the age of 76 years.

How do you recap the life of someone who was so loving, caring, giving, strong, talented and intelligent.

Mom loved people, she liked to interact and make new friends. When she moved here she soon had “Coffee Friends, Church Friends, & Curves Friends”.

Mom loved completing craft projects and could master any that she tried. From sewing to painting she could do it all. She saved us many times with her skill of finding creative solutions for projects.

She had to endure much heartbreak in her life through the losses of close family members but she was always the strong one comforting the rest of us.

Left to miss her are her mother, Eva O’Donnell, daughters and sons-in-law, Lynnette (Ed) Kalegaric and Melanie (John) Beattie, her grandchildren, Jennifer (Clinton), Stefanie (Jonathan), Anthony (Amanda), Matthew (Roxanne) & Samantha (Keith), her newest joy and first great-grandson, Owen Russell, her niece Adena (Keith) Heppler and family and nephew Martin (Roberta) O’Donnell.

Waiting for her in heaven are her husband Russell (2000), her son Gary (1996), her father Elmer (1992), her brother Earl (2003), and her sister-in-law Vicki (2009).

Evelyn collected angels and now we have lost our angel.

A Celebration of Evelyn’s Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, Alberta on Friday, January 5, 2018 at 10:00 A.M. with Pastor Glenda Wert officiating.

CAMPBELL

ERIC CAMPBELL, beloved husband of the late Lil Campbell passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital on December 29, 2017 at the age of 93.

He is survived by his two sons; Ken (Catherine) Campbell of Kelowna, BC and Mark (Sharlene) Campbell of Lethbridge. He is also survived by eight grandchildren: Dalyce, Reid (Destinee), Caylee (Ken) James, Jessica (Dan) Chisholm, Nyssa Hjelm, Mike (Christine) Sphar, David (Jessica) Inglis and Kristie (Dan) Laux and 7 great-grandchildren: Dylan, Gavin, Brooklyn, Mason, Charolette, Brinley and Kinsley.

Eric was born in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia on February 29, 1924 and was looking forward to his 27th birthday in 2021. He married his high school sweetheart, Lil, in Lethbridge in 1950. They were married for 57 years. Most of his working life in Lethbridge was with McGavin’s Bread.

Eric loved life. He was the epitome of the hospitable quality that Cape Bretoners are renowned for and had a tremendous sense of humor, able to put a smile on the face of everyone he met which is why he had a vast network of friends.

Traveling was a big part of Eric & Lil’s life as they would make yearly trips with dear friends to a warm, sandy beach in the middle of a cold Canadian winter (this would have been a perfect year for that) or make a trek to their beloved Cape Breton in the spring or summer.

Eric loved music and loved to sing. Many patrons of Martha’s House, where he spent his last 11 years, would often get an impromptu serenade in the elevator.

Eric made a positive impact on many lives during his 93 years on earth. He will be missed by his family and many friends.
