BRUNSDON, Edward “Ted” EDWARD “TED” BRUNSDON 1937 – 2024 After increasingly frail health, Ted passed quietly from earthly life to eternal life in the early hours of Friday, March 8, 2024, at the age of 86 years.
Ted was born May 25, 1937, in Prince George, B.C to parents Edward and Myrtle Brunsdon. His sister Beth arrived a few years later to complete the family. The vocational choice of his parents meant frequent moves and school changes. He graduated from Bedford Road High School, in Saskatoon, then earned the designation of Chartered Accountant from Queens University, Canada.
Ted married Beulah Jackson in Toronto on June 12, 1961. They would have celebrated their 63rd anniversary in several months. As his parents did, Ted also made vocational choices that meant numerous family moves. He experienced life in 5 provinces as well as the state of Oregon. Vacations always meant travel, most often throughout Canada, most often by road.
Unlike many, Ted realized his teenage dream of being a long- distance truck driver. For the last 12 years of employment he worked for H&R Transport and wore his “1 million accident-free miles” jacket with pride.
Throughout his entire life, Ted was a volunteer, often using his accounting skills to help others. He would volunteer on church boards, with service clubs, and performed personal acts of kindness as they arose. Most recently that included Habitat for Humanity, The Rio Vista Condominium Board, LSCO as a bus driver and the Gospel Messenger choir. Then of course coffee three times weekly with the Smitty’s coffee group had top priority!
Besides his loving wife, Beulah, Ted is survived by his 2 sons Edward Stanley “Ward” and Douglas Gregory “Greg” (Dana); several grandchildren and great grandchildren; sister Grace Elizabeth “Beth” Coulter (Howard); and nieces Deborah Blackman and Leanne Colledge.
He was predeceased by his parents Edward and Myrtle.

DOE, Barbara DOE BARBARA EMMA CHRISTINE DOE, of Lethbridge, beloved wife of the late Horace “Holly” Doe, passed away peacefully at St. Therese Villa on Friday, March 8, 2024 at the age of 97 years.
Barbara is survived by her son Donald, (Jimena) and grandchildren Mathew and Braedan; son David (Konny); sister-in-law Julie Lastuka; brother-in-law Jack Harmon, and numerous very special nieces, nephews, as well as great-nieces and nephews.
Besides her husband Holly, she was predeceased by her sister and brother-in-law Anne and Vince Bobinec, her sister Dorothy Harmon, and by her brother Ed Lastuka.
She was born on December 24, 1926, to Nick and Mary Lastuka. She came into this world prematurely and weighed only three pounds. Her mother Mary cared for her at home, keeping her warm in front of the open oven door.
Barbara grew up on the family farm east of Stirling, Alberta. These were happy times for Barbara, as she often talked about her time on the farm, feeding chickens and tending to the yard. She would speak of how she and her older sister Anne would ride a horse to school in Stirling.
Upon graduation from high school, Barbara attended secretarial college, and this would lead to employment with the Royal Bank and then the City of Lethbridge. Living and working “in town” was something a bit out of the ordinary for a woman at this time, considering her traditional Ukrainian background. She fully enjoyed her life as a single gal in Lethbridge, and there are many pictures of her laughing it up with friends at dance halls, work parties, and on various trips to Waterton and the West Coast. Barbara was very meticulous about her appearance when going out and about, and the pictures show a vibrant and fashionable young lady. It was during this time that she also became the “Cool Aunt” to her nieces and nephews, and to this day they still speak of how she would buy them toys and take them out to the movies.
It was while employed as a Secretary at the City of Lethbridge, she met her future husband and lifelong companion, Horace “Holly” Doe. They were married in the Anglican Church on October 7, 1961. On December 4, 1962, they welcomed their first-born son, Donald, into the world, followed by David, on May 14, 1965. With two children at home, Barbara gave up her career at the City of Lethbridge to become a fulltime homemaker for her husband and two children. Barbara and Holly raised their children in the family home, always putting them first. There were fun filled family trips to places such as Vancouver, Montana, and Disneyland, and of course, fishing and camping at Duck Lake. Barbara also supported the boys in their time playing hockey and baseball. She even put up with her glass figurines vibrating off the coffee table when one of the boys started a rock band in the basement.
More than anything else, Barbara loved spending time with family. The house was often full of extended family at Christmas, New Years, Easter, and Thanksgiving. She loved baking and, of course, all family members benefited from this. She would spend hours on the phone speaking with her sisters, Anne and Dorothy, and often visited her brother Ed, who continued to work the family farm where she grew up.
After Holly’s passing in 1995, Barbara soldiered on in the family home, keeping the yard and garden up with help as best she could. It was during this time that she became a grandmother to Mathew and Braedan, and of course nothing made her happier than this. In 2005, she became the adoptive mother to a 100-pound Doberman Pinscher named Genghis, who became her friend and protecter for the next eight years. Genghis always got his toast with butter while she drank her morning coffee.
In 2016, it became impossible for Barbara to stay at home. She became a resident of the View in Lethbridge for the next four years. Her favorite thing here was getting dressed up for lunch and dinner where there was always “her place” at the table with her friends. In 2020, due to declining health, Barbara moved to St. Therese Villa, where she very much enjoyed the gardens. She resided here until her passing.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to all the staff of second floor east at St. Therese Villa, who went above and beyond in providing her care over the last four years. We would also like to thank LPN Ashlee and Dr. Mark Cahill who offered compassionate support and comfort at the end of Barbara’s life.
A Viewing will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, on Saturday, March 16, 2024 at 12:00 P.M., followed by a Funeral Service at 1:00 P.M. with Reverend Steve Bateman officiating. The Funeral Service will be live-streamed and may be viewed through Barbara’s obituary on the Cornerstone website.
Following the Funeral Service, Barbara will be laid to rest next to her husband Holly in Mountain View Cemetery.

HEWITT, Joyce HEWITT JOYCE EVELYN HEWITT, of Lethbridge, passed away at St. Therese Villa on Saturday, March 9, 2024, at the age of 91 years.
Born in 1932 in High River, AB, to Fredrick and Katherine (Teare) Rockafellow. Fate brought Joyce her beloved husband, Arthur “Art” George Hewitt, during her nursing service at St. Michael’s Hospital, where she cared for him during his recovery from an accident. In 1954, Joyce and Art exchanged vows in Blackie, AB, marking the beginning of a cherished partnership.
Following their union, the couple settled in Lethbridge, AB, where Art dedicated himself to work at the Lethbridge Agricultural Research Station. Together, Joyce and Art embraced the joys and challenges of raising six children.
Joyce’s dedication to serving her community and nurturing her faith was evident through her involvement in a number of churches and missions in Lethbridge and surrounding area. She actively contributed to the spiritual enrichment of others through her participation in St. Augustine’s Anglican Church, Women’s Aglow, New Hope Christian Centre, The Miracle Channel, ROC Christian Ministries, and Joyful House of Prayer. Her commitment extended beyond the confines of the church walls as she devoted her time and energy to volunteering at the Lethbridge Senior Citizens Organization, St. John’s Ambulance, and the Lethbridge Regional Hospital. Joyce’s profound faith led her on two meaningful journeys to Israel, enriching her spiritual connection and deepening her understanding of her beliefs. Additionally, her compassionate spirit extended to sponsoring numerous children from underprivileged countries over many years, embodying her commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of others.
In Joyce’s later years, Jean F. was a faithful friend and care-giver for Joyce following her beloved husband’s passing in 2016.
Joyce is lovingly remembered by her children Glen (Xingyu) Hewitt, Roy (Ruth) Hewitt, Jane (Jerry) Friesen, Larry (Sandy) Hewitt, Mary (Troy) Hewitt, and Judy (Mark) Ross. She also leaves behind nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
A Celebration of Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825-32nd Street South, Lethbridge, AB on Thursday, March 14, 2024 at 2:00 P.M. with Pastor John Syratt officiating.
