It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our mother, MARGE ALLAN. Mom passed away with family by her side at St. Therese Villa, on Friday, January 19, 2018 at the age of 87 years, four days shy of her 88th birthday.
Mother leaves to mourn her sons Bruce (Jane) Allan and Donald (Linda) Allan; daughters Barbara Allan-Layton, and Ronna (Keith) Broadbent; seven amazing grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her loving husband, Ted, in 2004 and her younger brothers Ronald Minion in 2008 and Dennis Minion in 2009. Mom always said her only real accomplishment in life was her family.
Mother was born in Magrath at her grandparents’ home (Peter and Minnie Dow). When she was three months old, she moved to Rocky Mountain House with her parents, Roy and Irene Minion. These were the depression years. Times were tough and money was scarce. But she spoke often and fondly about the years spent in “Rocky.” She always referred to them as some of the happiest times of her life. Being a farm girl and her dad’s helper was just the best.
When she was nine years old, the family returned to Magrath for a year, before settling in Raymond. Marge finished school there and spent four years working for the Bank of Montreal. It was at that time that a young Raymond boy returned home from the Air Force. As they say… the rest is history. Ted Allan and Mother were married in 1949 and raised their family there. In 1965, they made the decision to move to the big city. That was where Mom began her second career. After eighteen years, she retired from the Royal Bank on Mayor Magrath Drive. She made many fond memories of staff, customers and friends from “The Good Old Days.”
At Mother’s request, there will be no formal funeral service. A Private Family Celebration of Life will be held in the spring. Flowers are gratefully declined.

OLIVIER, ROGER SYLVAIN passed away on January 17, 2018 at the Lethbridge Hospital at the age of 59.
Born to Cecile and Paul Olivier in Trois -Rivieres, on Feb 12, 1958, Roger spent his child hood years in St. Paul, Quebec amongst his nine siblings.
Roger came west from Quebec in 1978 right after high school, making his first home in Edmonton, Alberta. He spent the next forty years working at numerous ranches, feedlots, and farms throughout Western Canada. Since 2000, Roger made his home in Coaldale, Alberta where he met his wife of 11 years, Vickie. The pair moved to Claresholm this past year.
His passion was horses and he devoted himself to being a great horseman and ferrier. Roger loved all things outdoors and soon his second passion was born building his top notch fly fishing skills. He spent his holidays searching for new lakes and rivers in Alberta and BC chasing the “big one”. At age 50, Roger found a new challenge learning how to downhill ski. When the lakes and rivers were covered with ice, Roger found himself flying down the ski hills in the mountains in his free time.
Roger is survived by his wife Vickie Keam, his father Paul Olivier, and his nine siblings Jean, Gaetan, Rene (his twin), Martin, Danielle, Suzanne, Denise, Marie, and Serge and their families, as well as his step-daughter Nicole Thom from a previous relationship and her two children Callum and Thomas. Roger is predeceased by his loving mother Cecile Olivier.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, January 24, at 1pm at Hays Civic Centre, in Hays, Alberta. Dessert, coffee and tea will be provided.
In Lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to STARS,1441 Aviation Park NE, Box 570, Calgary, Alberta,T2E 8M7. Condolences can be sent to http://www.evergreenfh.ca
