Noreen was an active member and volunteer in many community organizations through the years. She was very interested in family genealogy and spent hours doing histories of the curling and golf clubs in the Town of Claresholm.

Family was the most important thing in Noreen’s life, and she was very proud of her children and grandchildren. Noreen will be deeply missed by her family and many friends.

CARTER

MR. JOHN “JACK” CARTER, beloved husband of the late Irene Carter, and father, grandfather and friend, passed away peacefully with his family by his side at St. Therese Villa on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at the age of 83 years.

Jack is survived by his daughter Lisa, son in-law Dean and grand children Forrest, McKenzie and Chance and numerous nieces and nephews, sister in-law and cousins.

Besides his wife, he is predeceased by his parents Chesley and Alice Carter, brothers Ben & Dale Carter, sisters Joan Woitte and Brenda Carter.

Jack was born on February 6, 1935 at Passburg (Hillcrest), Alberta. At a young age, he moved to Lethbridge and on his second day there, met Al Mervyn who became a beloved friend of over 65 years. He loved cars and worked at Enerson Motors, where he met his wife of 55 years. He worked for another 32 years at the Lethbridge Correctional Centre until his retirement.

Jack loved all sports, especially hockey and baseball, but nothing made him smile more that supporting and cheering on his grandchildren at their sporting events. He loved fishing with family and friends and played racquetball well into his 70’s. He wintered in Mesa, Arizona for over 20 years where he golfed, hiked and made many new friendships over the years.

Jack was a man of few words but when he spoke it was from the heart, he will be deeply missed by his family, friends and everyone who knew him. We are blessed to have had him in our life and know that he is now in a better place.

A Celebration of Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB, on Friday, June 1, 2018 at 12:00 Noon with Reverend Eva Stanley officiating.

Jack will be laid to rest with his wife Irene in a Private Graveside Service.
