With great sadness and a touch of relief, we announce that Zola Ann Johnson Haws, of Brooks, Alberta, has been released from the confines of her 96 -year -old body. Her spirit and cognition remained ever vibrant and youthful. Zola left this world on Thursday, July 12, 2018 in Brooks, after a somewhat arduous struggle. She was predeceased by two youngsters: Geraldine and Dean, by her husband, Ellis Dean Haws and son-in-law Gary Schmitz. She was also predeceased by her parents, Myrtle and Leith Johnson and six of her 11 siblings; namely: Gayle Johnson, Beth Gibb, Dean Johnson, Wayne Johnson, Julie Dalton, and Bryon Kaye Johnson. She is survived by five of her seven children: Dixie Schmitz, Jane Marsh, Joseph (Pat) Haws, Michael Haws, and Corrine (Max) Tateson. Zola felt blessed to have 19 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren, and posed for five, five-generation photos. Also surviving are four beloved sisters: Letha Lamb, Jackie Farnsworth, Peggy Hiatt, and Rita Simmons. Zola was well known and respected for her personal integrity, and her strength of character. She brought skill and talent to any project she touched; and could be counted on to face any situation, good or bad, head on with a stalwart spirit. She carried more genealogical information in her head than most, and was lucid and bright almost to the end. She loved her children, her family, and her Church adamantly. During Zola’s 96-year-old life span, she went from sleeping three or four deep in frigid-cold beds, to cooking for threshing crews at age 16, to raising four kids in a two-roomed shack with no amenities, to working at the lab at Vauxhall Foods and finally, to pumping out many crocheted afghans in between visits from the Tateson kids, while she lived in Newbrook Lodge, Brooks the past 10 years. Mom’s life was not without its challenges, but she remained graceful and gracious throughout. Funeral services will be held on Friday, July 20 in two parts: The Church Service will be at 11:00 AM from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Brooks Ward, (40 – 10 Street West) with a luncheon to follow. The interment will be in the Barnwell Cemetery, Barnwell, Alberta at 3:30 PM in the family plot. In memory of Zola, if friends desire, memorial tributes may be made to the Charity of one’s Choice.

MILLER, Richard Dale February 14, 1956 – Shaunavon, Saskatchewan July 13, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Dale Miller was born on Valentine’s Day, 1956 in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan and passed away, surrounded by family on July 13th in Calgary, Alberta. Dale grew up in Southern Alberta, moved to Calgary after getting married in 1980 and began articling at Price Waterhouse. Dale was a proud CA who held executive leadership roles in various Oil and Gas ventures over a successful 34 year career. Dale was often found on a ski hill volunteering for his children’s races, boating at the lake or puttering around the yard with its perfectly manicured lawn. After retiring, Dale and Maria enjoyed the Canadian winters from Arizona where music, sports and poker were constants. Dale is survived by his loving wife of over 38 years, Maria, children Nicole (Nick) and Christopher (Nicolette), sister Terry (Don), nephews Sean (Casey) and Curtis, step-siblings Scott (Sharon), Carol (Russ) and Patricia, in-law’s Helga (John), Martha (Armin) and Martin (Marian), nieces Jennifer (Bryce), Melissa (Ken), Mandi (Troy) and Mark, as well as countless others in his extended family. He was predeceased by his mother Elaine, father Gene, brother Allen, step-mother Shirley and step-brothers Glen, Craig, and Colin. His integrity, quick wit, sense of humour and fun-loving nature will be sorely missed, even more than his famous Caesar salad and ability to instantly add everyone’s dart scores with only a glance at the board. Dale always prioritized his family and friends above all else and was treasured by both in return. Dale’s family sincerely thanks everyone for their ongoing support. As per Dale’s request, there will not be a funeral but donations in memory of Dale Miller may be made directly to the Terry Fox Foundation, supporting a pan-Canadian project aiming to customize future pancreatic cancer treatments. In living memory of Dale Miller, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. CALGARY, AB, T3G 2T3, Telephone: 403-241-0044.
