ARSENE Mar 25, 1924 – Feb 3, 2018

Rene Arsene, aged 93, passed away peacefully and comfortably in her home at Cedar Creek, Lethbridge. She was predeceased by her husband George, and survived by her three children, April, Colly (Chuck), George Harris, granddaughter Amy, and great grandson Adam. Rene was born in Gainford, Alberta, a small town outside of Edmonton. She spent her early school years in the Edmonton area, and then started her career path as a student nurse at the Misericordia School of Nursing (Edmonton). Following her graduation, she and her good nursing friend travelled extensively throughout the United States for almost 5 years, working in obstetrics, surgery, emergency, and as an emergency air transport nurse. Along the way, she met her husband George, and moved to Lethbridge to spend her days as a wife, mother, and a nurse. Once settled in Lethbridge, Rene nursed at the Galt Hospital, the Bigelow Fowler Clinic and then finished her career in the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital. Here, she enjoyed the challenges of being head nurse of the Surgical and ICU departments, a director in her professional association in Edmonton, and shortly before her retirement in 1985, took a leadership role on the steering committee for the building of the new Chinook Regional Hospital. Her chosen career was one of her true passions and she served it well. Rene and George enjoyed their retirement together – and when they were not travelling “down south” they were enjoying many picnic filled road trips to visit family and friends. They both shared a love for community volunteer work and Rene especially cherished her volunteer time as President of Meals on Wheels, and her years with the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Rene’s love of dogs, and of being outdoors endured to her last days. Her generosity of spirit and appreciation of kindness and for the simple things in life were never far from her. She loved her family and friends fiercely and taught those around her the value of hard work, commitment to their chosen pathways, and above all….grace and courage in the face of adversity. The family would like to thank all the special staff and caregivers at Cedar Creek for their kind and devoted care of Rene during her 4 years with them. A service will be held at a later date and will be announced on the Christensen Salmon Generations website. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta would be appreciated.

VANDER HEYDEN

JOHN VANDER HEYDEN, beloved husband of Mary Vander Heyden, passed away peacefully at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Monday, February 12, 2018 at the age of 85 years.

John was born September 12, 1932 in Gemert, Netherlands. The second son of Leonardus and Hendrica van der Heijden, John was raised on a farm in Holland with his six brothers and three sisters. Of these, he is predeceased by his parents, his brothers Leo, Piet, and Martien, and his sisters Diny and Christine, whose spouses Tiny, Leentje, Wim, and Theo, are still with us. He is survived by his brothers Henk (Trude), Anton (Annie), and Gerard (Elly) and his sister Marie.

In 1957, along with many other adventurous young bachelors from Holland, John went by boat to immigrate to Canada to settle in southern Alberta’s farming community. In 1959, he returned to Holland to marry and bring back his loving wife, Maria Loman.

In Picture Butte, John and Mary bought a farm and together they raised six children. John is survived by his wife, Mary, his sons Peter (Manon), John (Brenda) and Robert (Angie); his daughters Marlene (Brad) Mariette (Dave) and Pauline Simpson; 20 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, with his family continuing to grow in size…

John was always very active in community building. John became a passionate supporter of the beef livestock industry and was a delegate on the Alberta Cattle Commission for over ten years. He was a founding member of the North County Interfaith Food Bank. John was instrumental in fundraising to build the North County Recreation Complex and with his playful sense of humour he secretly built a family of log people that quietly appeared in front of the Rec Center, one by one in the year 2000 and which for a long time remained a mystery as Picture Butte’s Millennial Family. John was the only Albertan to ever receive a license from the Alberta Government to capture red squirrels and he built large cages for them which he installed at various seniors centres including the Piyami Lodge, all for research into recreational therapy.

As a Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus, John was one of several people who received the International Patriot Award for his 1995 work to honour the Canadian Soldiers who helped liberate the Netherlands in World War II, a war he lived through as a young boy. In 2006, the Picture Butte Chamber of Commerce presented John with the Murray Kane Achievement Award, an award the Town of Picture Butte presents annually to a deserving resident to recognize their achievements and contribution to the community.

John Vander Heyden Sr. is now in our Lord’s hands and is dearly missed and forever remembered by his family and friends.

A Prayer Service will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB, on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 7:00 P.M.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at ST. MARTHA’S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 355 Columbia Blvd. West, Lethbridge, AB, on Friday, February 16, 2018 at 10:30 A.M. with Father Roque Pereira celebrating.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the North County Interfaith Food Bank, 326 Highway Avenue, Picture Butte, AB, T0K 1V0.

WHITE

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Darrell Fredrick White, beloved husband of Ruth, and father to Amanda (Clinton) Cervo and Ella White on February 5, 2018 at the age of 61. Darrell is survived by his mother, Marion, his brothers Dennis and Gordon, his sister Janice, their families and numerous extended family. Darrell was born in Hartney, Manitoba and raised in Hay River, NWT until the family moved back to Hartney to the family farm. In adulthood he moved back to Hay River where he met and married his wife Ruth. They and their new family lived in Hay River until relocating to the Lethbridge area in 1988. Darrell was a passionate man. He loved and was committed to his family and his friends. He loved his golf (most of the time) and even curled his way to the provincial finals more than once for the NWT team. There was nothing he was not willing to try to fix and he loved working with his hands. He enjoyed being outdoors whether it was camping, fishing or even just to mow the lawn. When inside Darrell could be found restoring his antique truck or watching golf, curling or whatever sport was the flavor of the moment. Darrell loved to travel and he and Ruth enjoyed many trips over the last number of years seeing new places and making new acquaintances. He was a volunteer firefighter with the Coalhurst Fire Department for many years, and while in Hay River, a proud member of the Elks, committing many hours to the community. Darrell will be sorely missed by family and friends, but definitely not forgotten. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the MS Society of Canada.

The Funeral will be held at the Evangelical Free Church of Lethbridge, 4717 24 Ave S on Saturday February 17th at 1 pm.
