Born in Hardieville, Lucy grew up on a farm in the Sunnyside community. She was a resilient child, enduring polio and many stays away from home for medical treatment throughout her childhood. She met Joe and married on October 21, 1945. She enjoyed working at Western Canada Hardware and then for many years, until her retirement, for the County of Lethbridge.

She was affectionately known to many as “Grandma Lucy” and spent her time caring for her humongous gardens, sharing her love of gardening and flowers with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

She was a long-time member of the Catholic Women’s League and the Weaver’s guild and loved to gift her warm blankets to family and friends.

Lucy is lovingly remembered by her daughters, Pat (Ken) Anderson of Pincher Creek, Ann Duncombe (Ray Yezovich) of Lethbridge, and Joan (Jim) Peterson of Colorado Springs; her son-in-law, John Morgan of Foremost; and her brother, Francis “Punch” Bitango; as well as her grandchildren, Shawn (Coralee) Anderson, Clint (Elizabeth) Anderson, James (Andrea) Anderson, Paula (Dean) Palmarchuk, Chris Duncombe (Tara Semeschuk), Ryan Morgan (Mandy Pack), Ashley Morgan (Ryan Miller), Joe (Kat) Peterson, and David Peterson; and her great grandchildren: Levi, Lewis, Colton, Malina, Hallie, Cole, Mackenzie, Kahlan, Reed, Dalin, Bella, Tove, and Ryland.

Jaydean Visser

1994 – 2021

It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our eldest daughter, Jaydean Lauren Visser, on September 17, 2021, at the age of 27 years.

She will forever be remembered by her parents Darrell and Lorraine, her beloved son Jaxson and her sisters Dana and Amanda.

Jaydean was lovingly brought into this world on August 28, 1994, in Lethbridge, Alberta. She was funny, loving and had a creative soul. As a child, she was happy, inquisitive and resourceful, always playing detective and being the star of home movies. The family will fondly remember the name “Agent Flower” while looking back on memories of her childhood.

Her teen years were hard as her inquisitive and resourceful nature proved difficult as she entered the drug culture. Although treatment was sought, the drugs were always a force that pulled her away from us.

Now her struggle is over and peace is finally found. We now mourn not only the loss of our girl, but also what addiction took from her; the dreams unfulfilled, the goals unreached, and a life unfinished.

Flowers are gratefully declined, but donations may be made to Streets Alive Mission (Genesis Project).

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic there will be no formal service. We wish to thank all the first responders for their service.

My poem below is dedicated to Jaydean and to any families with loved ones who are struggling with addiction.

Quicksand

Often it is said that God doesn’t give you more than you can withstand.

But when the one you love is an addict, it’s more like walking on quicksand.

Every moment unsteady treading ever so light.

While your loved one falls deeper into the night.

This is not an easy goodbye, nor the way it should be.

But now is not the time for blame,

it is a time for kindness, forgiveness and mercy.

We love you our dearest Jaydean, our little beauty queen.

The addict is not who we will choose to remember,

instead our daughter’s memory will be treasured.

Love, your family.
