Antonetta “Netta” Baer

1928 – 2021

On Monday, August 23, 2021 ANTONETTA (NETTA) BAER passed away at the age of 93 years at St.Therese Villas, leaving the world with a great deal less magic and grace.

Born June 20, 1928 to Anthony and Anna Maria Linders in north Lethbridge, she grew up in a strong Catholic family of six girls with her father after her mother died very young. She attended high school and obtained her certificate from Garbit Business College. During this time she was smitten by a handsome young man called Fred Baer. They married on September 3, 1947. And they created Ricky Baer who was a lucky son who enjoyed adventures and encouragement. Because of Fred’s employment with John Deere, she moved from Lethbridge to Medicine Hat to Edmonton to Grande Prairie to Camrose and back to Grande Prairie. In 1981 they moved to Burlington and back to Lethbridge in 1988 to retire.

Family was everything to Netta, especially her relationship with her five sisters and their families. She had such great times at the Newcomers Club in Burlington and met life-long friends Louise and Glen Carther, Doug and Dora Laurie, and Eve and Bill Liston who lived next door. Golfing, cross-country skiing, travelling to Myrtle Beach and Florida as well as Barbados and Puerto Rico, Netta and Fred had so much fun. Adventures with Rick and Barb at Shuswap Lake houseboating and Tofino cabining by the ocean are brilliant memories.

Our Netta created adventures in her home on every special occasion and event. She was an artist in every hobby. She was the best dressed for every occasion and every season. She was magical!

She is survived by her most special son, Rick and daughter-in-law, Barb; her beloved sisters Vera Linders and Louise Reiter; her sister-in-law Barb Martens, Marlene Krogstad of Chicago, brother-in-law Max Baer of Chicago, brother- in-law Art (Pat) Baer of Carson City; her nephews Kevin (Cathy) of Picture Butte, Ward (Robin) of Iron Springs, Ray (Karen) Martens of Medicine Hat, James (Jane) Kerr of Toronto, David (Andrea) Krogstad of Chicago, Brett (Laura) Krogstad of Chicago, Raymond Baer of Chicago, Danny Baer of Carson City; her nieces Barb (Kevin) Viergutz of Coaldale, Caroline Linders of Lethbridge, Gaetanne (Sean) Murphy of Edmonton, Erin (Terry) Johnson of Picture Butte, Michele (John) Tavernini of Edmonton, Ann Marie (Danny) Joyce of Toronto, Marlene (Bob) Tobin of Chicago, Shirley Baer of Tempe.

She always will remember her grand and great nephews and nieces as well as their families who brought such joy and wonder to her life. She had all their pictures on her very crowded bulletin board in her sewing room and talked lovingly of how lucky she was to have these children who shared her imagination.

She is predeceased by her soul mate, Fred; her sisters Lindy Kerr, Ricky Poirier, Nellie Hutton; her nephews Scott (Ruth) Reiter, David Hutton, Terry (Donna) Hutton, Mark Poirier, Brian Kerr, Jimmy Baer; her niece Laurin Belcher; her brothers-in-law Barry (Louise) Reiter, Jim (Nellie) Hutton, Dave (Lindy) Kerr, Gil (Ricky) Poirier; and special family member Corne (Barb) Martens.

A Memorial Mass will be held at 10:00 am on Saturday August 28, 2021 at St. Basils ROMAN Catholic Church, 604 13 Street North, Lethbridge, Alberta with Father Kevin Tumbak, Celebrant.

Kim Prindle

1958 – 2021

Kim Prindle, beloved husband of Gayle Prindle, father and grandfather to Jamie (Stewart) and their children Cecelia and Gavin, Sean (Justin), Robbie (Karly), passed away suddenly on August 21, 2021 with his family by his side at Chinook Regional Hospital in Lethbridge, Alberta.

Kim was predeceased by his mother Nancy Prindle and in-laws William and Lillian Norris.

He is lovingly survived by his father Lee and Lucelle Prindle; his siblings, Kevin (Carmen), David (Michelle), Meridee (Allan), Colleen (David); sister and brother-in-law Judy and Arlo, stepbrothers Aaron (Shannon) and Jeremy (Rona) as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Kim was born in Shelby, Montana, the oldest of five children. Before permanently settling in Lethbridge, Kim with his family lived in Sandpoint ID, Forsyth MT, Conrad MT, Laramie WY, Walnut Creek CA, and Pullman WA.

Kim excelled at many sports including football, basketball, baseball, fishing and golf. Kim attended the Lethbridge Community College where he met his wife, Gayle Norris. After he graduated from the University of Lethbridge with degrees in City/Urban, Community and Regional Planning and Geography, he and Gayle married on July 14, 1984.

Kim and Gayle worked in Lethbridge for a few years before continuing their journey to the United States, where he enlisted in the United States Army. The career took them to numerous states, making many lifelong friends. Kim initially learned Spanish at DLI in Monterey, California, then moved on to Goodfellow AFB in Texas, followed by Savannah Georgia. He was finally stationed in Orlando, serving in Intelligence as a 98G2L Electronic Warfare/Signals Intelligence Voice Interceptor during Desert Storm. Kim was proud to serve in his role as a Sergeant within the United States Military Intelligence Battalion. Through this role, he earned numerous achievements/commendations, notably The Good Conduct Medal and The Army Achievement Medal for which he distinguished himself by meritorious achievement. On November 1, 1990, he received a Certificate of Appreciation for his role in providing support to the President of the United States.

In August 1986, Kim and Gayle welcomed their first child, Jamie, followed by Sean in 1990 and Robbie in 1992.

As proud as Kim was with his role in the Army, his true devotion was to his family. Kim and Gayle decided to move off the military base and return to Southern Alberta to be close to family, raising their growing children. Kim was a tremendously loving father and family-man who always had his loved ones in mind when making decisions.

Kim and Gayle, with family in tow, spent time in Lethbridge and area before moving to Pincher Creek to open a new restaurant. In his spare time Kim earned his EMT and worked with the volunteer Fire Department. Eventually they returned to Lethbridge to settle and continue to raise their family. Kim took a position with American Eye Instruments in Gold Beach, OR. Kim commuted between the United States and Canada, continuing to ensure his family could enjoy all the west coast had to offer, ensuring strong bonds were forever created within his family. His pursuit of excellence allowed him to quickly move up the ranks to his current position of Sr Director of Sales with NovaEye Medical, based in Australia. This position opened up a world of traveling opportunities and Kim and Gayle enjoyed many trips all over the country.

Kim and Gayle created a second home in Mesa, Arizona where they made and welcomed many friends and family members.

Kim was an incredible man who truly lived each day of his life and will be missed by all who had the opportunity to know him.
