WESTRUP (DENECKY), Mary

MARY WESTRUP (DENECKY) Mary Westrup, devoted wife of the late Neville John Westrup, passed away at Cornwall Community Hospital on Friday, February 3rd, 2023 in her 84th year.
She is survived by her three loving sons Marcus, Stirling, and Vaughan and her granddaughter Erica Westrup, as well as her brothers Nick and Steve Denecky.
Mary was born as Mary Denecky on September 19th, 1938 in Lethbridge County. She graduated from Coalhurst Highschool in 1956 and joined the RCAF in 1957 where she trained as a Weather Observer in Trenton, Ontario.
She met Neville Westrup while they were both stationed at an RCAF base in Resolute, Nunavut. They were married in 1960 in Louppy-sur-Loison in Meuse, France where they started a family. In the year that followed they travelled extensively, living (among other locations) in Comox, Osoyoos, Kitimat, Montreal, and Kelowna before finally settling down in Cornwall, Ontario, for the rest of their lives. They were also stationed in Germany.
Mary grew up to hard farm work and learned the value of helping others. To the end of her life she was still helping people. Always willing to give what she could, and never expected anything in return. She is one of the very beautiful rare special people on this Earth.
Mary did not want people to make a fuss over her passing, she was never an attention seeker. Her last wish was for her ashes to be scattered on a warm beach, under palm trees, where she would never be cold again.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, February 12 from 9 am – Noon in Cornwall, Ontario.

SZILAGYI, Thresea

SZILAGYI THRESEA “JOAN” SZILAGYI formerly of Lethbridge, beloved wife of Gyorgy “George” Szilagyi passed away peacefully at the Peter Lougheed Health Centre in Calgary after a brief illness on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at the age of 90 years.
Thresea Joan Walsh was born on December 17th, 1932 at home in Dunboyne, County Meath, Ireland to Martin & Theresa (Healy) Walsh. It was a Saturday.
Joan was the fourth child and first daughter of eleven children. Her father was a sergeant in the Irish Guards, and her family moved several times over her childhood. She spoke fondly of her freedom in those days: “running wild in the hills” with her brothers and her joy of being surrounded by nature. At the age of seventeen, Joan left for nursing school in Yorkshire, England. She subsequently received her midwifery degree and worked in the inner city of Glasgow, which she found very rewarding. Tired of the grey and wet weather, Joan decided to immigrate to Canada with a close friend. They departed on the SS Arcadia, arriving in Montreal on June 9, 1959, and proceeded by train to Alberta.
Joan was awestruck by the Rocky Mountains and decided to settle in Calgary. At the German Canadian Club, where Joan and her friends attended weekly dances, she met George Szilagyi, who had recently immigrated, from Hungary. On November 24th, 1962, after a three-month courtship, Joan and George married, honeymooned in Banff, and moved to Lethbridge. They started a family that grew to include four children.
Joan was the foundation of family home life, leaving an indelible, life-long and positive impression on all her children. The love she had for them was palpable; her default mood was cheerful and industrious, fun and warmhearted. By example alone, she taught the importance and power of caring and empathy, and not judging a book by its cover. She modeled strength and resiliency in the face of life’s challenges. Unfailingly polite and hospitable, she had a genuine interest in everybody she met, and showed great generosity of spirit. She loved to laugh, and laughed often, as much at herself as anything. Her children would go to her for encouragement, knowledge and advice. She was always their biggest supporter.
When grandchildren arrived, Joan felt too young to be a “granny” and became “Nagy mama”. She showed each of them the same devotion, always with a quiet word of appreciation, a gentle manner, and undeniable love. She will be deeply missed by her grandchildren: Adriana, Fiona, Andrew, Elijah, Rain, Grace and Cache.
Joan was a lifelong learner: she sought out new knowledge, experiences and adventures as a matter of course. She loved flowers, birds, gardening, walking, reading, crossword puzzles and sitting outside on the swing. Joan was a great conversationalist and was always ready with a relevant fact or anecdote over a cup of tea. Musical by nature, she was quick with a snippet of a song or a bit of verse as it came to mind and was an enthusiastic member in several church choirs. Joan was a woman of great faith, very active in her church community, and a lifetime member of the CWL. She especially enjoyed time spent working with the sisters at the Martha Retreat Centre. She tirelessly gave her time, energy and efforts to help others wherever there was a need.
After George’s passing last July, Joan moved to Calgary where she received compassionate care from the staff at Scenic Acres Retirement home and most recently at Holy Cross Manor. Although she was having memory issues later in life, she remained her wonderful self, and her family gratefully had her, and she had them, until the end. Her heart took its last beat, and she slipped away peacefully in her sleep in the early hours of January 28, 2023. She was ready. It was a Saturday.
Joan is survived by her children: Maria (Gene), James, George Jr (Sharla) and Martina (Jeff) Szilagyi, her siblings: Francis (Irene) Walsh, Maura Pedersen, Peter (Bridget) Walsh, Sal Connellan & Imelda Funk. She was predeceased by siblings: Dorothy Strom, Derek, Bernie, Bob, John and infant Martin Walsh.
Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear. Slán go fóill. (Bye for now)
A Prayer Vigil will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, on Sunday, February 19, 2023 at 7:00 P.M. with Sharon Hagel officiating.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at OUR LADY OF THE ASSUMPTION CATHOLIC CHURCH, 2405 – 12 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB, on Monday, February 20, 2023 at 11:00 A.M. with Father Kevin Tumback celebrating.
Both the Prayer Vigil and Funeral Mass will be live-streamed and may be viewed through Joan’s obituary on the Cornerstone website.
In lieu of flowers and in memory of Joan, donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

REGHER, Katherine “Tina”

REGHER 1922 – 2023 We are saddened to announce the passing of KATHERINE “TINA” REGEHR, at Olds Long Term Care, on Friday, February 3, 2023, at 100 years of age.
She will be greatly missed by her daughters Carolyn and Connie and grandchildren Danielle (Jack) and Justin (Jen) and great grandchildren Sawyer, Carver, Miller, Freya, Walker, Jasper, Levi and Benjamin.
Tina Regehr was born in Suworowka, Orenburg, Russia, on September 18, 1922 to Abram and Katherina Pauls. The family came to Canada November 11, 1926 and settled on a farm 15 miles south of Grassy Lake Alberta. She attended the Hudson one room country school for grades 1-9. She spent a year at Coaldale Bible School and took her Grade 10 at PBI in Three Hills.
The next three years were spent working in the Post Office and store in Purple Springs. She worked in the Del Monte Store in Coaldale for six years, where she met Henry Regehr and they were married in 1953. They farmed east of Broxburn and she went to work at the Coaldale IGA for John Martens, in Picture Butte for Dan and Tom Fletcher for a year and a half and Martens Hardware for Will Martens for thirteen years. In 1972, they moved into Coaldale. Henry died in 1975 and Tina and Connie spent three years in the Sunny South Lodge before relocating to Olds, Alberta, to live with Stewart and Carolyn. Here, she was able to watch her great-grandchildren grow and be part of their lives. In November 2021, she moved to Long Term Care in Olds where she celebrated her 100th birthday.
Tina enjoyed bus tours in Canada and the US, and Waterton and Henderson Lake were favorite local destinations. Tina sang with her family group, Praise and Share, at Senior Centers and with the Chapel Singers, at the Lethbridge Correctional Facility and for special events. Hospitality was a big part of her life, and though her house wasn’t big, she hosted many family get-togethers on the farm and her table was never short of baking. She enjoyed her yard and flowers, and summer saw her freezing and canning from her garden. She was a faithful member of the Coaldale Mennonite Brethren Church and said she felt very blessed by her Bible Study group. She enjoyed coffee with friends and maintained that chocolate and ice cream were staples of any good diet. She was competitive in games and preferred a book or puzzles to TV. She was sensitive to the hurts of others and not given to complaining. Mom also spent time helping Henry’s parents, Peter and Anna, and her parents Abram and Helen, in their senior years.
Tina was predeceased by her husband Henry, her brothers Abe, John and Peter, her sisters-in-law Grace, Pat, Grace and Anne, her sisters Margaret and Helen, her brothers-in-law Frank, Stanley and Dave, and her son-in law Stewart
She is survived by her brothers Corey and Dave (Iris) and her sisters Anne, Lydia (Alvin) and Janet and sisters-in-law Eva and Anne and many nieces and nephews.
A Graveside Service will be held at COALDALE MENNONITE CEMETERY, Coaldale, AB, on Friday, February 10th, 2023 at 1:30 P.M. The Celebration of Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, at 2:30 P.M.
