MARGARET LUCEAL GREEP HALL, beloved wife of the late Bert R. Hall, returned to her Heavenly Home on May 18, 2020 at the age of 92 years.

She will be greatly missed by her loving children: Morris (Sheila Meeks) of Lethbridge – Kelly Marie (deceased), Cory (Lori) Hall, Ryan Hall, Jesse (Kim) Hall; Bryce (Becky) Hall of Calgary – Clayton (Aimee) Hall, Kristin Hall, Blake (Britta) Hall, Brock ((Karli) Hall, and Kayla (Jeff) Kenly; Mary Ann (Scott Slater deceased) (Kevin Hill) Hall Slater-Hill of Marriott Slaterville, Utah – Chelsey (Mark) Westergard, Jordan (Stephanie) Slater, and Sharlee (Trevor) Arave. Dearly loved and treasured also are her 13 grandchildren and 33 great grandchildren.

Margaret was born January 10, 1928 at home in Raymond to Stanley Stuart Greep and Tilda Christian Greep. She was raised in Raymond in a loving family with four siblings: Pearl Perry (deceased), Mary Powlesland (deceased), Ilene Greep (deceased), and Stanley (Carmen) Greep of Temecula, California.

She was sealed to her eternal companion, Bert, in the Cardston Alberta Temple. Together, they raised their children in Raymond. In later years, they moved to the farm east of Raymond. The farm became Margaret’s life. She worked, tirelessly, as a dedicated farmer’s wife, and was a leader in her church and community. She was a faithful and active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in a variety of callings. Margaret was a great cook – homemade rolls and bread, sloppy joes, her famous potato salad, July 1st Root Beer, and Christmas cabbage rolls were her trademark favourites. She willingly served others, and many were recipients of her love and caring. The family shared countless treasured times in Blaine Lake, Montana.

Margaret fought valiantly to remain on the farm that she and Bert cherished. She was aided by so many people in her own family, and in her dedicated church family as well. She also had numerous devoted and faithful friends who blessed her life. Margaret was one of a kind. She could sing “Popeye the Sailor Man” while changing her voice for the different character parts. She danced and sang with her grandchildren. There was always fun, teasing and happiness. Her family remember her as hilarious, spunky, and strong willed – but, always loving, and always beautiful.

Special thanks and remembrance to medical caregivers, and to forever friend Rose Forsyth. Sincere love and gratitude to Morris, who has faithfully cared for his mom enabling her to remain in her home as she wished.

A Family Graveside Service will be held on Saturday, May 23, 2020 in the Temple Hill Cemetery in Raymond.

OLGA ROSE KLEIST, beloved wife of the late Byron Norman Kleist of Iron Springs, passed away peacefully at the Citadel Care Center in St. Albert, on May 19, 2020 at the age of 95 years.

She is survived by her daughter Sandra and son-in-law Theo, grandchildren Rod (Bobbie Geo) Gschaid, Jennifer (Brad Hansen) Marsh, Crystal (Cam) Smith, Keith (Jennifer) Bruinsma; great- grandchildren Madison Marsh, Liam and Peyton Smith, Brooklyn and Baron Bruinsma, and Rylan, Rustin and Rigdon Gschaid; sister Emily Bilcik, brother Charlie (Valane) Chervenka, sisters-in-law Gertie and Eva (Jesse); as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and their families.

She was born May 5, 1925, to Walter and Mary Chervenka. The family immigrated to Canada when Olga was six years old.

Her love for planting started at an early age, when the family homestead in Sunnybrook, Alberta. They pioneered farmland and later moved the family to Southern Alberta. Olga was the oldest of six: a sister Mary, brother Stanley, brother Joe, sister Emily and brother Charlie. She always had a deep nurturing spirit caring for others. During the winter months, as a teenager, Olga found a job working at the Crowsnest Hospital. In the kitchen she helped prepare special meals for the patients. She worked alongside the Hospital Dietitian as an Aide. Her skill propelled her to a special love for cooking. Later she would host large parties for family and friends and serve up incredible gourmet meals.

She married her first husband Tommy Joss and had two beautiful daughters, Angie and Sandra. Years later she remarried her second husband, Norman Kleist, and lived on a farm in Iron Springs raising 600 turkeys and countless other birds and animals. Olga and Norman retired from the farm life and moved to an acreage north of Picture Butte where she pursued her interests. Sewing and quilting among many other crafts, nothing was too big or small.

But the love of planting and beautiful gardens took center stage. Her remarkable design skill displayed an array of flowers that showcased incredible colours that attracted people far and wide. The flower arrangements that represented Canadian flags, Southern Bells and Gentlemen were just a few of the beautiful presentations. People would be in awe dropping in as they drove by the acreage in admiration. She proudly invited them in for a drink and a sweet. Extremely accomplished, Olga’s green thumb won many local competitions through the Community Horticulturist Society. Olga’s landscape presentation sparked interest in others as she eagerly explained the do’s and don’ts.

Olga lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; gardening, cooking, crafts and spending time with her family and friends. Olga was also spiritual, involved in many activities with the Catholic Church. Her huge generosity helped many. She had a bright energy and a contagious smile that lit up a room. Many of the Seniors and Nurses at the Citadel have funny stories about Olga. She loved to dance, she played her old LP’s on her record player and tried convincing her grandchildren to do the waltz or polka.

The greatest pain a mother can endure came on August 20, 2013, when Angie, Olga’s oldest daughter passed away. Angie took with her a piece of Olga’s heart that could never be replaced.

A beloved daughter, wife, mother, nana, and great-nana, they all treasured her. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her and loved her. Olga’s legacy will live in a small place in all of us.

A Private Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church, with Interment to follow in Mountain View Cemetery.
