RUSSELL

CHARLOTTE IRENE RUSSELL, beloved wife of Fergus Russell, of Coaldale, passed away peacefully and with family at her side at the Sunny South Lodge, on Monday, October 22, 2018 at the age of 82 years.

Besides her husband Fergus, Charlotte is survived by her children: Duncan (Loretta) Russell of Edmonton, Heather Russell (Brad Gustafson) of Chestermere and Ian (Tanya) Russell of Skiff as well as three grandchildren, Kennidy Anderson, Kourt Russell and Ty Russell. She is also survived by her sister Sharon Karp of Courtney, B.C. and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her father George Gottleb Karp, mother Elise Katherine Karp and brother Walter Karp.

Charlotte was born in Leader, Saskatchewan in 1936. In 1937, the Karp family moved to Alberta. They resided in the Crowsnest Pass area, finally settling in Cardston, Alberta where Charlotte graduated from high school. She was then employed by the local school division. After the passing of her father in 1957, the Karp family moved to Lethbridge where Charlotte worked as a receptionist and book keeper at Smith Motors. It was during this time that she met Fergus Russell. The couple was married in 1962. They made their home and raised their family in Skiff, Alberta until retiring to Coaldale in 2007.

Charlotte was always loving and kind. She never uttered a negative word about anything or anyone. All were welcome around the kitchen dining table- family, friends and neighbours, as well as anyone hired to work on the farm. Charlotte was an excellent cook, always concerned with serving all dishes piping hot. Her meals were often accompanied by her delicious homemade bread or buns. If you entered her kitchen as a guest, you left feeling like family.

Charlotte was a hardworking farm wife. Along with raising three children, she always grew a large garden. She spent long days in her kitchen, canning and processing her harvest so it could be enjoyed through the winter months. Despite being raised in the city, Charlotte embraced the rural life and even learned how to drive the combine. She proved to be a very capable harvest hand. A favourite family story illustrates her ingenuity as one year she repaired a leaking combine hopper with her chewing gum. Charlotte kept laying hens and supplied eggs to many other families. She was also of service to her community as a long-standing member of the Skiff Ladies Variety Club.

Life on the farm wasn’t all hard work. Charlotte enjoyed old-time music and dancing. She and Fergus belonged to the Pemmican Club for many years, always attending the New Year’s Eve Ball. Potluck suppers, picnics and other community events were also enjoyed.

Later on, Charlotte took up other hobbies such as knitting, crocheting and quilting. Many family members and friends have afghans or quilts lovingly made by Charlotte. Also, there was usually a crossword puzzle underway on the kitchen counter.

There are so many lives she touched in a positive way. So many memories that bring a smile and show the wonderful person that she was. So many stories about how she made a difference or made someone’s day. So many hearts that are feeling sadness because she was here- because she loved. Alzheimer’s took you from us too soon, but you will be with us always.

A Private Family service will be held.

In memory of Charlotte, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society, #40, 1202 – 2 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 0E3.

Robert Spenceley

1966 – 2018

In the evening hours of Tuesday, October 23, 2018 a much-loved son and brother passed away suddenly in Victoria BC. Rob Spenceley, the son of Jim and Lynda Spenceley of Lethbridge, moved here with his parents and older brother Bill in 1973. He attended Lakeview Elementary, Gilbert Paterson Junior High, and graduated from the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute in 1984. Rob’s teachers were always finding nice ways to explain that Rob’s natural energy was sometimes “disruptive” in class! The fact is, for his all of his 52 years he was known for his quick wit, his ready laugh and his generous heart. He eventually studied at George Brown College in Ontario and became a refrigeration and heating technician, and this was his career up until the time he passed away. Family meant a lot to Rob, and he was forever grateful to his extended family in Alliston, Ontario–especially Aunt Trudy and Uncle Jack Solomon who helped him out so much when he apprenticed for his trade in his cousin Vern Solomon’s Environmental Systems Corporation. Rob also looked up to his big brother Bill, who fondly referred to his little brother as “Schnurf”. The last time the brothers spent together was a happy time in Rob’s favorite place, out on the ocean fishing. In fact, Rob was happiest out on the water, smiling into the wind piloting his beloved boat. Along with his love for hunting and camping, Rob was also an accomplished cook, and all of us will miss his laugh in the kitchen on Christmas Eve, helping Lynda with the schnitzel. Joining Jim, Lynda and Bill in a loving good-bye are his sister Susan Langdon, his sister-in law Shannon Spenceley, cousins Vern Solomon, Susan Kenney (Solomon), nieces Alexandra Cattoni and Burgess Langdon, nephews Eric Cattoni, Ted Spenceley and Spencer Langdon, and his uncle Frank Kyselka and family. A private family service will be held at a later date. For those who wish to donate flowers, please consider donating to the McKillop United Church “Building Fund” 2329 15th Ave S, Lethbridge AB T1K 0X5 or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada Box 2211, Lethbridge AB T1J 4K7.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Viktor Titov, beloved husband, father, and grandfather. He leaves behind Valentina, his wife of fifty-one years, his daughters, Olga Kovalchuk, and Lyubov Titova, his sons-in-law, Igor Kovalchuk, and Artur Teymurazyan, his grandchildren, Anna, Alexander (Sasha), and Gregory, and his brother, Vladimir. He was predeceased by his parents, Viktor and Lyudmila, and his brother George. He was born in 1946 in Ukraine. In 1967, he married his high school sweetheart, Valentina. Most of all in his life, he enjoyed spending time with his family. His daughters and grand-children will forever cherish their memories of him, especially all the games and long walks. Most of all, they will miss and remember his loving kindness and generosity. Always a scientist, he has inspired his children and grand-children to pursue learning, to always ask questions and never take anything for granted. Both his daughters and grand-daughter followed in his footsteps and became scientists. Viktor studied engineering and chemistry, receiving a Ph.D. in chemistry from the Moscow State University. Over his long and distinguished academic career, he has taught chemistry and biochemistry at three universities in Ukraine, having trained countless graduate and undergraduate students, many of whom stayed in touch with him over the years and will remember him fondly as a teacher and a mentor. In 2003, he moved to Canada. He and his wife made a new home in Alberta, which he came to love deeply. Here, he continued his career as a research scientist at the University of Lethbridge. He was the rock of the family, always there to help and support others, and will forever be in our hearts. Over the past fifteen months, he struggled with lung cancer. His family is enormously grateful to the medical teams at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, the Jack Ady Cancer Centre, and the Moffitt Cancer Centre, as well as the continuous support of his family doctor and the palliative care team. As we mourn, we ask that you kindly send donations in lieu of flowers to POET (Precision Oncology Experimental Therapeutics) program, either online at https://netcommunity.ucalgary.ca/ViktorTitov or through a cheque addressed to the University of or through a cheque addressed to the University of Calgary with the memo: POET, 2500 University Drive NW, Calgary Alberta T2N 1N4.
