GUDMUNDSON, Vincent

GUDMUNDSON VINCENT COLLISHAW GUDMUNDSON was born May 13, 1941 and passed away peacefully with family by his side, on Tuesday, February 13, 2024 at the age of 82 years.
Vince will be remembered for his warm laugh, patience and kind heart. He loved the outdoors, nature, was an avid hunter and fisherman, and was a good friend to many.
Vince was born to Roseanne and Steini Gudmundson and grew up in Elfros, Saskatchewan in a small farmhouse with his sister Chris and brothers, Leo and Ernie. He and Leo rode horses to school. Some winters, the snow was almost as deep as the telephone poles.
He met his highschool sweetheart at a dance in Wynyard, Saskatchewan and she was smitten with his handsome looks and knew they would be together forever. He married Glory McLennan in 1967. They have four children.
Vince was a proud member of the RCMP and joined the force in 1965. He was stationed in Nelson, Castlegar and in Ocean Falls, BC, where he and Glory ran the police station and jail below their apartment. When Vince received his Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Alberta in 1974, he took his skills to the Forensic Science and Crime Detection Lab in 1969 and worked in the Hair and Fibre section of the lab for ten years in Edmonton and then ten years in Halifax. He was proud of his work.
Upon retirement, Vince and Glory opened two Tim Hortons franchises in Lethbridge, Alberta and heard many cop and donut jokes. They moved on from there and Vince worked briefly as a crop adjuster for AFSC, and then found a role he loved, working a dream job with his good friend Oscar Walter, helping and laughing with him on his farm in Lethbridge.
Vince will be missed dearly by his siblings and their spouses, Leo and Linda, Ernie and Cheryl, and Chris and Fred.
He will be especially missed by his wife of 57 years, Glory, as well as by his children, grandchildren and great granddaughter; Lori, Jaden (Ethan), Kian and Emma of Anmore and Port Moody, BC., Cam (Cherry) Ragnar, Gunnar and Brynjar of Fort McMurray. Kurt (Trina), Kyla and Griffin of Fort McMurray and Dori (Becky) Avery and Colten of Coaldale.
The last few years of Vince’s life were tough, as the cancer he fought hard against advanced after a 16-year battle. He continued to cherish his time with family and had his final coffee meet up with friends last week. His grandkids will certainly miss hearing all those old RCMP stories. He lives on in the hearts of all that knew him.
A Celebration of Vince’s Life will be held at a later date, with details to follow.

DAVIES, Shanda

DAVIES SHANDA MICHELLE DAVIES (née Green), passed away peacefully with her family by her side at St. Michael’s Health Centre – Palliative Care on Tuesday, February 13, 2024 at the young age of 50 years.
Shanda was born March 26, 1973 to Robert and Martha Green, the middle of three children. Lethbridge was always where Shanda called home, where she raised her family of three, and made deep impact on her community.
Entering the world of esthetics, beauty and skin care early, Shanda dedicated her life and career to helping those around her look and feel their best in their own skin and make their own mark of beauty on the world around them. Everywhere Shanda went and in every life she touched, she left an imprint of beauty, love and laughter.
Family is what mattered most to Shanda, and her children were the source of deep purpose and joy. Shanda raised one son and two daughters: Grayson Tyler Luke (26), Danica Angelina (23) and Nadia Arianna (17), all of Lethbridge.
Shanda began her fight with Ovarian Cancer in July of 2022. She faced this battle with fierce and fearless resiliency, refusing to allow it to shadow her ability to spread her passionate, bubbly, and radiant love and energy to the lives she was able to touch each day.
On the morning of Tuesday, February 13, 2024, Shanda went home to be in the eternal presence of her redeeming Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, while surrounded by her family.
Shanda was survived by her children: Grayson, Danica and Nadia; parents, Robert and Martha Green of Lethbridge; her sister, Kindry Khattab (Mohamed, and six children) of Flower Mound TX, her brother Jason Green (and two daughters) of Calgary AB.
The family suggests considering in lieu of flowers, a donation to assist her children in the costs of the funeral. All donations can be forwarded to Cornerstone Funeral Home.
A Funeral Service will be held at the THIRD DAY CHURCH 90-55 WT Hill Blvd South, Lethbridge, AB on Tuesday, February 20, 2024 at 11:00 A.M.
