Our sweet Joanne, wife, mom, and grandmother, returned to her heavenly home on Tuesday August 4, 2020. Joanne was a loving and supportive wife to her husband, Ron, mother to 4 children: Susan (Greg) Peterson, Linda (Dallas) Sherwood, Karel-Lyn (Gary) Snedden, and Darcy (Shanda) Heggie. Joanne was a grandmother to 13 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren (12 in October). Her grandkids all thought they were gramma Jo Jo’s favorite because she made them each feel so special. Joanne was born August 30, 1940 to parents Cestton and Dorothy Sudo. Joanne was proud of her Japanese and Belgian heritage. Joanne was the oldest of 5 children and took her role as the oldest very seriously. She felt a lifelong love and responsibility for her younger siblings. She was blessed with great aunties and loved them all dearly. Joanne was the oldest child on the farm and worked from a young age alongside her little brother, Donny, moving hand pipes, hoeing beet rows, and stacking pea vines and hay. This hard work and responsibility served Mom well for the rest of her life. Through her fine example, she showed her children and grandchildren the value of a great work ethic. She married Ron and gained 2 wonderful supporters and mentors, in-laws Avilda and Bob. Aside from her exemplary homemaking role, Mom was an equal partner to Dad in founding R.K. Heggie Grain Ltd. in 1959. Mom was the original office manager, the backbone of this business, and as it grew she was always the voice of reasoning. She tirelessly supported Ron as he expanded his business and developed other successful ventures. She supported Ron as he became the co-founder and integral part of getting the following businesses started: Hiway 52 Feeders, Transmark Ltd, Lethbridge Inland Terminal Ltd., and Alberta Midland Railway Terminal Ltd. Together they 2 built homes, the last being a beautiful acreage west of Raymond. Joanne and Ron spent thousands of hours in their yard, and their kids and grandkids spent many happy times together as a family in their beautiful yard. They had immaculate flower, fruit, and vegetable gardens. At the end of the growing season Joanne would can and preserve all the fruits of their labors. Joanne loved to camp and downhill ski, hike in Waterton, and walk or ride her bike on the country roads in the early morning hours. She was able to do all of these things until well into her 60s. She enjoyed the company of many good friends and family. Laughter was always present. Joanne served in many callings in the LDS Church and grew to know, love, and serve many people this way. She loved all the Young Women she served over the years and had a special place in her heart for them. Joanne and Ron were called as Stake Missionaries and served in the Del Bonita Branch. There, they also made many lifetime friends. Joanne was called to serve as an ordinance worker in the Cardston Alberta Temple and although initially nervous about this new calling, Joanne was blessed to be able to accomplish all that she needed to serve in this capacity. Joanne had the humble privilege to provide support and guidance to so many beautiful brides on their special wedding day. She always kept a special place in her heart for these women, and over the years the family has enjoyed hearing how much her love and guidance helped these brides on their special day. Gramma Jo Jo always remembered her grandkids’ birthdays, her kids always enjoyed an angel food cake with her special fondant icing for their birthdays, and we are pretty sure she kept Carlton Cards in business. Joanne had an amazing sense of humor and kept this until the end. She was a loving, compassionate, and humble daughter of God. She served a divine mission during her time on earth. She will go on now to renew her acquaintances with those who passed on before her: her parents, Cestton and Dorothy; Ron’s parents, Bob and Avilda; her beautiful granddaughter, Kenzie; and Ron’s brothers, Alan and Ray. We are blessed and comforted beyond measure to know that families are forever. We are grateful for all those who provided loving care for mom during her years at home, and for the wonderful care she received from the doctors and nurses of Raymond hospital. A Private Family Service will be held at a future date. Her funeral service may be viewed online following the service.

It is with tremendous sorrow and broken hearts that we, the family of ANDREW “ANDY” JOHN & STACY JO-ANN (née Csabay) QUIRING of Scandia, announce their sudden passing from a motorcycle accident. Andy passed away on Sunday July 5, 2020 at the age of 52 and Stacy passed away on Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at the age of 49 as a result of injuries sustained in the accident. They are survived by their three children: Dalton, Cassidy and Laci, all of Scandia.

Andy and Stacy are survived by their parents, Al & Lily Quiring and Jim & Marlies Csabay, and their respective siblings: Andy’s include Charlene (Glen) and Jackie (Don), and Stacy’s include Barb (Emilio), Alisa (Dan), and Jeff (Ruby). They are also survived by numerous nephews and nieces.

Andy grew up on a farm in the Strathmore area. He was adopted at the age of nine months by Al & Nettie Quiring. Andy learned to work at a young age and drove tractor on the farm like many farm children did at that time. His interest/love of animals started early which eventually led him to custom wrangling and roping. In his school years, he was involved in school sports and worked as a wrangler at Camp Evergreen.

Stacy grew up on a farm in the Readymade district living next to the old Readymade school, and was lucky enough attend school there for six years; she was part of the last group of students who attended the old school. From there, she attended RI Baker, Kate Andrews and Caronport High School for two years. After high school, she went to Provo, Utah to obtain her dental assisting credential. She lived in Slave Lake for a number of years, working at a local dentist’s office. Upon her return to Southern Alberta she became reacquainted with someone she met when she attended Camp Evergreen many years ago.

The journey of Andy and Stacy’s life together began on June 26,1999 when they were married at Stacy’s parents’ farm. They were blessed with three beautiful children who always made their parents happy and filled their hearts with joy. The early years of their marriage were spent working as a team on parcel of land on the Rolling Hills road. Eventually they outgrew it, and went on to purchase their current location where they built their dream home. As all parents do, they watched their children move from toddlers to children who participated in 4-H, school sports, and community events. They were always there cheering and supporting the many teams that Dalton, Cassidy and Laci played on. Stacy was always willing to volunteer for numerous events at the schools the children attended.

Andy started his sales career with Southland International Trucks 27 years ago and was employed there at the time of his passing. Prior to that, he was on the road hauling cattle for Vanee Livestock for several years. Andy was a great salesman, believing in a firm handshake and taking great pride in remembering his client’s names.

Stacy worked as a dental assistant in Slave Lake and Lethbridge. When she moved to the Scandia area she drove school bus for the Grasslands School division until her passing. She took numerous students on field trips and was a conscientious driver. Stacy was the full time farm hand in the Quiring operation. There was nothing that she wouldn’t try, from pulling calves to priming a pump to driving a tractor or quad.

For many years, Andy and Stacy would spend their summers camping and boating at the Rolling Hills reservoir and other favorite locations in Alberta, BC and Montana. They enjoyed weekend getaways with their friends in the Corvette club. Their favorite place was Mexico where they spent many happy days on the beach in Nuevo Vallarta making friends with local vendors and fellow vacationers. In recent years, Andy took up the game of golf and Stacy would happily ride the cart when on holidays.

How do you capture what these two people meant to not only their children but their families and the many and numerous friends that they had? Words are not going to suffice. There will forever be two holes in our lives. We would like to thank the First Responders who attended the accident scene, STARS Air Ambulance, the HOPE Organization and the many doctors and nurses who have been on this journey with the family. We would also like to thank the Scandia community for their support of Dalton, Cassidy and Laci; the food, donations, calls and outpouring of love and concern have been overwhelming.

A private celebration of their lives and church service will be occurring by invitation only due to COVID-19 restrictions.

In memory of Andy and Stacy, donations may be made to STARS Air Ambulance (www.stars.ca/ways-to-donate/ab), Southern Alberta Organ & Tissue Donation Program (c/o Foothills Medical Centre, 403 – 29 St. NW, Calgary, AB T2N 2T9), or Human Organ Procurement & Exchange “HOPE” Program (#9423, Aberhart Building, 11402 University Ave., Edmonton, AB T6G 2J3).
