SLOBODA, Pheona PHEONA SLOBODA 1945 – 2023 Well mom, today (Oct 27, 2023) you finally did it. You escaped from here as quietly unassuming as you lived. Who would have guessed that you Pheona Sloboda (nee Kuehn) would have snuck out of the Milk River Health Care Center as simply as you did? “See you tomorrow” you said; little did we know you were referring to Grama Dorothy (nee Woitte), Grampa Wes (Kuehn) and Uncle Harold (Kuehn)!
Family and friends are invited to join us in remembering Pheona at 11:00 am, Tuesday November 7, 2023, at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610, 4 STREET SOUTH, Lethbridge, Alberta.
