Frank was a private and quiet man. To him, family was first and foremost. He loved and cherished many memories of time spent with family and being home on the farm. He enjoyed hobbies, such as: woodworking, visiting the mountains, watching classic movies and seeing his beautiful garden grow. He had a love of horses and enjoyed raising hogs and cattle.

He had many different jobs as a young man. He drove trucks and semi trailers up the Alaska Highway and all over northern Alberta, British Columbia and the Yukon Territory. It was up on the Alaska Highway where he met his wife, Kaye. In later years, they drove up into the Yukon Territory together to bring back memories and visit relatives. Frank and Kaye went down to Australia so he could meet her family in late 1972. They mined sapphires in central Queensland for a year before returning to Canada. In addition to raising livestock, Frank worked a number of years in highway maintenance. He got to live on “the farm” he loved for 30 years.

1922 – 2018

Our dear Eva passed away peacefully in her sleep at St. Therese on May 13, 2018. She was 96 years of age.

She was predeceased by her husband, Dan Pengilly, her son Richard Pengilly and her daughter-in-law Lee Pengilly.

She is survived by her daughter Diane (Ian) Reed, their children Kurtis (Lisa) Reed, Kristin (Brad) Gathercole, Karen Reed and Kent (Kristin) Reed; her son Ben Pengilly, his children Carrie Pengilly and Daniel (Katie) Pengilly; Gordon Pengilly (Connie Zerger) and her son Doug (Elaine) Pengilly and their children Nick and Skyler Pengilly. She is also survived by 7 wonderful great grandchildren.

Eva was born in Blackie, Alberta in 1922. She married Dan in 1945 and they farmed outside of Stirling for about 40 years. Even though she as the mother of five children, a farmer’s wife and an active member in her church and community, she still found time to be the full-time secretary of the Stirling School.

She was a kind, generous and funny person who will be fondly remembered by her grandchildren as “Hummy”. We always felt that she was our favorite comedian. She was renowned for being able to feed the multitudes at a moment’s notice. Eva was a very staunch supporter of her sons in high school basketball and infamous for giving the refs a hard time. Dan would have attested to that!

A graveside service for immediate family will be held at the Stirling Cemetery.

Friends and family are invited to a Memorial Service at 2:00pm on Saturday May 19, 2018 at the LDS FAIRMONT CHAPEL- 205 Fairmont Blvd S, Lethbridge, AB.

The family wishes to thank the staff of St. Therese for their wonderful care and consideration. They all knew Eva by name and treated her with dignity.

In Lieu of flowers, feel free to make a donation to the charity of your choice on her behalf.

Mrs. Sheila Ryan

Mother, Grandmother,

Sister, Aunt

1934 – 2018

Mrs. Sheila Ryan of Lethbridge, beloved wife of the late Ed Ryan, passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Friday, May 11, 2018, at the age of 84 years.

Sheila was the youngest of eight siblings born on April 13, 1934 in Lethbridge at the Galt hospital – one of the Galt babies – to Charles and Louisa (Appleton) Hulley. A competitive basketball player at Central School, she possessed inner strength and unwavering support for others that continued throughout her life. Following her school days, Sheila lived in Calgary with her sisters, and worked as a typesetter for the Royal Canadian Air Force. Then, in 1954, she began her career as a copyeditor for CHEC radio and later moved to CJOC. Through radio, she met and married Ed on May 15, 1956. Career highlights included working with remarkable people, being challenged creatively, and the many awards she accrued for creative copywriting excellence from the Radio Bureau of Canada – many of these for the Canadian Crime Stoppers Association. Sheila advocated to have CJOC become the first radio station in the Selkirk chain that negotiated the use of word processors in a copy department, supporting writers and alleviating heavy workloads. She also recalled fond memories of teaching a journalism course at Lethbridge College. Throughout the years, Sheila was a tenacious defender of women’s pay equity in broadcasting and human rights, and fought against gender stereotyping. Together with her husband, Ed, they raised their five children to stand up for their beliefs and principles.

In the mid-1970s, Sheila initiated the family’s move to an acreage east of Lethbridge. The acreage was her paradise on earth. It was here that Sheila and Ed were able to transform a piece of the southern Alberta prairie into an oasis and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the country. Sheila enjoyed the time and space to garden, entertain family on special occasions, and share her love of horses.

Outside of work, Sheila was passionate about reading, writing, cooking, and following current events. She also loved her favourite pets, Kelly, Otis and Stevie. She enjoyed our large family gatherings and inspired and supported her children and grandchildren to follow their dreams.

Sheila is survived by her four daughters and one son, Robin (Glenn) Bright – Amy and Erin, Louise Ryan – Zoey, Susan Ryan, Kerry (Jed) Snatic – Bridget and Madelaine; son Sean Ryan – Dezmond; sister Betty Kasperski; nephew Tom (Val) Hulley – Alexandra, Connor, and Dylan; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and their families.

A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610 – 4 Street South, Lethbridge, Alberta, with Shelly Dawn Bassett officiating.

A private family interment will be held in the Mountain View Cemetery.
