Eileen Mhairi Dunlop McFadzen March 8, 1937 – June 19, 2021

Eileen died on June 19 following a brief illness.

Eileen was born and raised in Hamilton, Scotland and came to Canada fifty years ago. She and her husband, Iain, settled in Lethbridge and proceeded to make a life for their family. She trained as a social worker in Scotland and continued those studies in Lethbridge, instilling in her children a love of learning. She also worked as a research assistant at the University of Lethbridge.

Eileen was an intelligent, funny, and articulate woman who was known for keeping those around her on their toes. She was a proud grandmother to five much-loved grandchildren. She passed on many traits her children are proud to carry forward, the least of which is fierce loyalty.

Eileen was a lover of books and there are countless bookcases in the house. She would have been happiest if each wall was floor to ceiling books. Her garden brought her great joy and she loved pottering about amongst the riotous colours of the flowers.

She will be missed in immeasurable ways.

She is survived by her husband Iain; children Kae, Jan (Ted), Lyn, and Kevin (Michelle); grandchildren Aidan, Isla, Keelin, Niamh, and Liam; sister Ishbel (John) and their children Iain and Helen; sister-in-law Patricia.

At Mum’s request, there will be no funeral.

1924 – 2021

Our beloved father, Byron Henry Wolsey, passed away on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 20th, 2021, in Cardston, Alberta, Canada at the age of 96.

Byron was born in Cardston, Alberta, Canada, September 26, 1924, to Edward Peter Wolsey and Esther Rees who had emigrated from Sanpete County, Utah. He was raised on a farm and ranch south of Cardston in the small community of Taylorville.

He started his career as a carpenter but eventually he gravitated back to his love for farming and ranching. He purchased his parent’s property, expanded the operation, and worked in that industry the rest of his career. He loved working with cattle and always enjoyed the great outdoors.

To supplement his income, he purchased his own school buses and drove for the Cardston School Division for over 35 years. He was proud of the fact that he drove all those years accident free. He loved the students he served, and they loved him.

Dad is survived by his children: Mell (Genna Vee), Dana Stewart (Robert), Murray (Valerie, deceased), Todd (Lori), Wes (Julie) and Elizabeth Allen (Richard). He has 33 grandchildren, 55 great grandchildren, and 13 great, great grandchildren.

He was predeceased by his wife: Edna, his parents: Edward and Esther, his two sisters: Mildred Hinds and Eliza Bennett, and his seven brothers: Edward, Wendell, Hugh, Eldon, Elmo, Dean, and Morgan. We are happy for Dad and the joyous reunion he is having with mom and the many other loved ones that he has longed to see for many years.

Dad leaves a legacy of faithful devotion to God and his family. Byron labored tirelessly as a loving, devoted husband, a provider for his family, a father, a grandfather, a son, a brother, a friend, and a servant of the Lord. He faithfully served in several callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints including a full-time family history mission with his wife. He especially loved his many years of service in the Cardston, Alberta Temple.

All who knew Dad will miss his quick wit and humor, his strength, his positive attitude through trials, his kindness, his wise guidance, his caring nature, his love, and his acceptance of others.

The Funeral Service will be held at the Legacy Funeral Home in Cardston, Alberta, Canada. Due to Covid restrictions we are limited to 20 family members attending. If you would like to view the service, we welcome you to watch it online live, or later as a recording. The funeral will be Saturday, June 26th, at 11:00 a.m. Respects may be paid in person to Byron and his family from 10:00 – 10:45 a.m. prior to the funeral, in groups of 20.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Humanitarian Fund -The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
