Logan Boulet

1997 – 2018

With immense sadness we announce our hero, Logan Alexander Boulet, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 7, 2018, due to injuries sustained from the Humboldt Broncos tragic bus crash.

Born on March 2nd, 1997 in Lethbridge, he was the son of Bernadine and Toby and the brother of Mariko. Logan attended Dr. Probe Elementary, G.S. Lakie Middle School, and Winston Churchill High School. Sports were a huge part of his life as he played hockey, rugby, badminton, soccer, and curling growing up. He spent his last three hockey seasons playing in the Saskatchewan Junior ‘A’ Hockey League. Logan started as a Kindersley Klipper and continued the majority of his career as a Humboldt Bronco. He was accepted to attend the University of Lethbridge this fall, following the footsteps of his parents and older sister. He was seeking to be an educator like his mom and dad.

Logan always wanted to be defined as more than just a hockey player. He was a son, a brother, a grandson, a nephew, a cousin, a best friend, a student, a teammate, an overall wonderful human being, and yes, also a hockey player. Logan will be remembered as a creative soul who loved adventures both in his own backyard and across the world. He was drawn to art and music and took time to look, listen, and create with his talents. He was a quiet guy, yet never failed to light up the room with his quick wit. He is remembered by those who knew him best for his antics to bring laughter to any moment in time.

He will be joining great-grandparents, great aunts and uncles from the Boulet and Higo families, beloved life mentors, as well as teammates and staff of his Bronco Family.

He is loved by so many and will be incredibly missed.

A Celebration of Logan’s Life will be held at 1:00pm on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at NICHOLAS SHERAN ICE CENTRE, 401 Laval Blvd. W., Lethbridge, AB.

For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to Kidsport – Logan Boulet Fund (Lethbridge & Taber Chapter), 1001 – 3 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB., T1J 0J3.

Anna Mamula

1923 – 2018

Mrs. Anna Mamula nee Zacchini passed away peacefully with her family by her side, at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Monday, April 2, 2018 at the age of 94 years.

Anna was born in a small town of Libano Italy on July 26, 1923 to her parents, Nazzareno and Angela Zacchini. She was raised in Italy with her 2 brothers, Nello and Franco and her sister, Maria until she broken-heartedly left her family to move to Canada.

In the 50’s, Anna travelled across the ocean and settled in Taber Alberta and later moved to Lethbridge to raise her five children on her own. She struggled with pride and never excepted help from anyone. Later she worked at Southland nursing home and she enjoyed and cared about her job. She never complained about anything, she was happy to have a job and support her family. In those days it wasn’t easy.

Mama was full of life and energy, was an incredible cook (one of her many traits) and she was always happy. A selfless woman explains her well – always putting other peoples feelings ahead of her own. She enjoyed many things such as: crocheting, traveling, her deep faith which carried her and music which really lifted her. My goodness she was very funny and anyone that met her fell in love with her. This woman you will not find again! God made only one! We were so lucky to have been picked to be her children. Through tough times and special moments.

Her children and grandchildren were her life – that says it all! She left us five children behind for now, to join her parents, one brother and one sister.

Anna is survived by three daughters, Grace (Dan) Ell, Marta (Ed) Mumford and Georgia (Matt) Rickson; two sons, Gabriel (Gaya) Mamula and Michael Mamula; as well as ten grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren.

You are our Angel Mama, Our Friend! We love you! Memories will never fade, for the impact you have had on us will forever be strong in our hearts. Please come visit us when you can in our dreams! Your family is there with you and we will be with you again

Gabby – Grace – Mike – Marta – Georgia XO

NEIL MATHESON MCDONALD passed away peacefully in Lethbridge on April 6, 2018 at the age of 85 years.

Neil was born September 16, 1932 to Mr. & Mrs. J.M. McDonald in Eckville, AB where he grew up. He had an interesting and adventurous life that took him from working in a creamery in Alberta, to drilling for salt in Windsor, ON, and then to drilling for oil both in Canada and in the Arabian Sea in the 1960s. During his time working in the Middle East he traveled extensively to places ranging from England to Japan. He returned to Canada and completed his education at Horticultural College in Olds, AB. He then settled into a career as a Fruit and Vegetable Inspector for the Federal Government which moved him from Edmonton to Lethbridge. However, he still had other interests on the side, including being part owner of a hotel/bar.

Neil married Darlene in 1975 and had an instant family with her children Dean and Danni. Neil and Darlene were avid square dancers until Multiple Sclerosis took Darlene’s mobility. Neil was a very good step-father and introduced his new children to many things ranging from skiing and travelling to playing bridge. Sadly, Darlene passed away in 1997.

After Darlene’s passing, Neil’s passion for playing duplicate bridge grew and he would play several times a week continuing up until his recent health problems a few months ago. Neil accomplished the challenging goal of becoming a Bridge Life Master. Going to coffee with him often meant replaying some of the hands of bridge he had played the night before after first catching up on the latest news about all his “kin-folk”.

Neil met Loretta Schwartzenberger and they have been companions for the past several years. They were able to do some traveling and enjoy life. Loretta’s family was always very good to Neil and included him in all of their activities.

Neil is survived by Loretta Schwartzenberger, step-children, Dean (Bev) Gallimore, and Danni (Pete) Bendkowski, grandchildren Lauren Gallimore, Amanda Gallimore and Luke Bendkowski and sister Margaret Ferguson along with many nieces, nephews and cousins. Neil was predeceased by his wife Darlene, sister Phyllis Andrews and brothers Donald and Ewart McDonald.

A Funeral Service will be held at ST. ANDREW’S PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, 1818 – 5 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 11:00 A.M. with Reverend Hugh Jack officiating. A Reception for family and friends will follow in the Church Hall.

In lieu of flowers and in memory of Neil, please feel free to make a donation to a charity of your choice.

John Miller

1948 – 2018

Mr. John Richard Miller of Lethbridge, passed away at the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary, AB on Tuesday March 6, 2018 at the age of 69 years.

He was predeceased by his parents, sister Carole and daughter Taja.

He is survived by his wife Donna; son Brett (Eddie); daughter Senta; grandchildren Daxon, Chelsea, and Max. Also left to mourn are his sister Marilyn; nieces Tane and Tarin; and nephew Scott.

John was a man who always said what he thought. He was clever and opinionated, but fair. He hated injustice of any kind – on the other hand, John had a soft heart which made him always available to help anyone who was in need.

Besides his family, John loved the Boston Bruins (from the age of 6). He also loved golf, college football, Fox News, and his dog Patriot.

Above all of that, John loved the Lord. It was his faith that gave him strength to endure the pain and weakness that he suffered the past few years. He is with the Lord now, and we shall see him again.

A Celebration of John’s Life will be held at 3:00pm on Friday, April 20, 2018 at COUNTRY KITCHEN CATERING, 1715 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB.

There was a special place in his heart for Veterans and Military personnel. He asks that any memorial donations be made to Wounded Warriors, 310 Byron Street South, Suite 4, Whitby, Ontario, L1N 4P8.
