Josephine was born in Donja Obrijez, Croatia. She and Albert moved their two sons, Joseph and Bronco, to France where they settled long enough to welcome baby John into the world. Wanting to find a better life for their young family, they decided to immigrate to Canada in the winter of 1959. Josephine and Albert settled in Taber to raise their sons and remained there until retiring to Lethbridge. While Albert worked as a carpenter, Josephine ran the household and made sure that her boys were well fed and cared for until they moved away and had families of their own. Although she loved life in Canada, she missed home and was so happy when her relatives from the “Old Country” would call. Josephine loved to garden and always had the most impressive flower beds in the neighbourhood. The world seems a little less colorful now that she is gone. She has returned home but will never be forgotten.

Joseph Thomas Pard, beloved husband of Theresa Pard, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Thursday, January 17, 2019 in Lethbridge, Alberta at the age of 74.

He began his life on his mother and father’s homestead on the Piikanii reserve and attended Sacred Heart School. He learned his love for farming and ranching on his parent’s farm which he pursued throughout his entire life. He worked for various farmers and pursued available opportunities as they came. He did this until he met the love of his life (Theresa) and began his own farming operation in 1970 and did this until the early 2000’s. His family grew and so did his love for farming which he continued to build on by adding cattle and many other endeavours as well. He enjoyed farming and the cattle ranch; from seeding and cattle brandings in the spring, haying in the summertime, to taking off the crops in the fall, and the yearly round ups in the fall, and using his tractor to remove snow from the roadways and feed his cattle in the winter. He was well known in his younger years for enjoying fishing and hunting with his friends and family. He was always ready to help his community, friends, and family. He served as a member of the Piikanii Chief and Council (1982). As his son (the late Dan Pard) got older, they developed a strong team which was evident in their success in the horse racing industry, cattle ranching, and farming. He also worked along side his son (Troy) with mechanics and farming. He had a very close relationship with his daughter (Cathy) who worked with him in ranching. When he was not working on the farm, he would spend all his free time with family and friends but enjoyed family gatherings through the year where he would be with all his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

Joe Pard was predeceased by his sons Dan and Thomas Pard; parents Albert and Rita Pard; grandparents Tom and Marion (Baptiste) Little Plume, Run Among Buffalo; siblings: Isadore and Bernadette, Leo and Louisa, Camilla, Clint, Rose Marjorie, Iris Mary and Stephen; aunties, uncles and close relatives; Molly/Billy Strikes With A Gun, Lucy/Pat Yellow Wings, Ben/Louise White Cow, Philomene, Delphine, Lena, Linda, Willie and Thomas Little Plume, Dick/Kate Pard, Kate, Mary, Martha Runs Among Buffalo, Sam/Agnes Yellow Face, Joe Scott, Gus Weasel Bear, Pete, Paul Smith, Leonard Little Mustache, Laura Black Eyes; close relatives; Joe Scott Family, Paul Smith Family.

A Prayer Service will be held at Snodgrass Funeral Home, Pincher Creek, at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, followed by the Wake at Joe and Theresa Pard’s residence and will continue into the morning of January 24.
