CHRUPKA, Rose CHRUPKA, Rose 1933 – 2024 Rose Chrupka, age 90, passed away on June 11, 2024 at Chinook Regional Hospital surrounded by loving family.
Her legacy will be cherished by her children, Gail (Doug) Kirkman of Coleman AB, Randy Chrupka and Kelly (Terri) Chrupka both of Turin AB; as well as her seven devoted grandchildren: Mat (Jacklynn) Elfring, Stacey (Tyler) Olsen, Kerby (Pat) Pyne, Kelsey (Nic) Chrupka, Kevin (Tanya) Chrupka, Ian (Jalene) Chrupka, and Eric Chrupka. Rose is also survived by ten great- grandchildren, whom she treasured dearly.
She was predeceased by her husband Louis in 1989: and her siblings: Frank (Emily) Bilcik, Arnie (Bob) Kemmet, Agnes (Dennis) Dudley, Helen (Tony) Mikula, and Marie (Eric) Smith.
Rose was born August 3, 1933 in Tilley, AB to Michael and Mary Bilcik. Michael later purchased a farm in Turin and the family made Turin their home. Rose and her 5 siblings worked hard on the family farm. Rose, being the youngest, spent a lot of time with her mother in the kitchen. She became an excellent cook, as anyone who had a meal at the farm will attest to.
In 1954, she married Louis Chrupka and became a Farmer’s Wife. She loved life on the farm and was proud of this fact to the very end. Farm life brought with it long winters, where Rose and Louis spent countless nights playing cards with their many friends. Rose was an excellent poker player, and she was proud of getting a “perfect hand” in crib.
Rose and Louis retired to Coaldale where they expanded their circle of friends. After Louis passed in 1989, Rose spent time travelling with friends. She enjoyed visiting family and taking long walks. She loved her walks and was disheartened by bad weather when she couldn’t get outside. She also loved going back out to the farm – farming always stayed with her.
Our mother was a beautiful woman, both inside and out. We will remember her by her quiet strength and dignity.
She rests forever in all our hearts. A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. For those who wish to share condolences, please visit http://www.generationsfh.ca
TORSHER, Sheila TORSHER, Sheila Marie October 26, 1932 – June 14, 2024 Sheila Torsher passed away on Friday, June 14, 2024, in Calgary, after a life well-lived and more recently, a struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.
She was born in Southern Alberta in 1932, growing up on a farm in Bow Island, Alberta, as a proud farm girl. She attended school in Bow Island, Medicine Hat, Pincher Creek, and Calgary. She was recognized for having the highest scores in the Government of Alberta Grade 12 departmental exams, winning both the Governor General’s medal and the Calgary Separate School medals for her achievement. She went on to graduate with a BSc in Food Science and Home Economics from the University of Alberta, and completed internships in Toronto, Spokane, and Vancouver, before starting work in Calgary, and later in Bow Island, as a dietician. The arts were always important to Sheila, earning her Royal Conservatory Grade 9 piano, singing in the University of Alberta Mixed Chorus, embracing new skills such as weaving (she was a founding member of the Celebration Weaver’s Guild), and encouraging a love of music in all her children.
She met her future husband, Edward Torsher, as a child in Bow Island, but they didn’t start dating until they reconnected in Calgary, in the mid-1950s. They were wed in 1958, and when Sheila’s father died suddenly, they moved back to take over the family farm. They farmed successfully for 38 years. In addition to her years as a partner to Ed on the farm, she was as dedicated musician, Canada census worker, and a dedicated volunteer serving as a 4-H Sewing Club leader, a member of the University of Lethbridge Senate, and on the Alberta Health Long-Term Care Review Committee. In her later years, she retired to Calgary, where she enjoyed new friendships, playing golf, bridge, and travel. She was an extensive world traveler both before marriage and later in life.
Family, friendships, and her faith were very important to her. She was a devout Catholic, a lifelong member of the Catholic Women’s League, a member of the St. Bonaventure Parish Bereavement Committee, and a longtime supporter of the Sisters of the Faithful Companions of Jesus. She and Ed always valued education and a broad international outlook.
She was predeceased by her husband, Ed Torsher (1996), and sister Sr. Patricia Halpin (FCJ) (2023). She is survived by her children, Laurence (Lynn), Daniel (Marie-Hélène Côté), Maureen (Laurent Dumaine) and Kevin (Lynn Wright); and grandchildren, Alexa, Camille, Eric, Evelyn, Guy, Hugo, Jill, Luke (Kayla), and William. She is also survived by brothers, Roger (Gayle) and Tim (Evi).
Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael’s Catholic Church (1113 – 1st Street East, Bow Island, AB), on Saturday, August 24, 2024, at 12:00 p.m. Graveside service to follow at the Bow Island Cemetery.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to The Alzheimer Society of Alberta and the Northwest Territories at http://www.alzheimer.ab.ca or to the charity of your choice.
Condolences and memories may be shared with Sheila’s family at http://www.MHFH.com. In living memory of Sheila Torsher, a tree will be planted in the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area by McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes.
ROBERTS, Phyllis ROBERTS It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Phyllis Ann Roberts of Lethbridge on June 15, 2024, at the age of 82. Phyllis married the late Joseph (Clark) Roberts in 1962, living together throughout Alberta until 1976 when they put down roots in Lethbridge.
Phyllis is survived by three children, Clark Roberts (Rosalind) and their daughter Tianna of Sherwood Park, Alberta, Traci Lengyel (Richard) and their children Richard and Kendyl of Lethbridge, Troy Roberts of Lethbridge; son-in-law Darcy Sherman and grandson Levi (Jordyn) Barry of Lethbridge, a sister Sharon (Myles) Pyne of Black Creek BC, two brothers, Doug (Eveline) Heinzlmeir and Jim (Barb) Heinzlmeir, of Red Deer, AB, a sister-in-law, Bev Ursan of Maple Ridge, BC, and life long friend and cousin Bill Borgen of Vancouver, BC; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Phyllis was predeceased by the love of her life Joseph (Clark) Roberts, her eldest daughter Terry Lynn Sherman, her parents, John and Lucille Heinzlmeir, mother-in-law Winnifred Severinson, her brother Marvin Heinzlmeir, sisters Doreen Wallace and Patricia Forsythe, nephew Kelly Pugh, sister-in-law Arlene Heinzlmeir, brother-in-law Bobby Hales, sister-in-law Marj Hales, brother-in-law Dave Forsythe, and special aunt and uncle Eva and Bill Borgen.
Phyllis was born in Calgary, Alberta on June 14th, 1942 and resided with her family in the Rockyford and Rosebud areas until her family relocated to Red Deer in 1954. In 1956 Phyllis met her future husband while attending school.
Phyllis was a loving wife and mother. She instilled in her children that family comes first, both in times of celebration and tribulation. A visit to her home was always filled with amazing meals and an array of baked goods. Grandchildren, nieces, and nephews would be known to visit the “storage” room to survey the bounty found within the giant freezer and pantry. Never shy of hardwork, countless hours were spent making costumes, fixing sports uniforms, caring for her garden and home and supporting the community by working at local elections. Phyllis made inumerable friends through her many years at Persnickety. Phyllis and her husband enjoyed spending time with their friends, travelling across Canada and the US, attending countless sporting events and taking the occasional trip to Las Vegas. In her later years, Phyllis’ love of travel continued, she was able to visit 34 countries over the course of her travels. Cruises, Hawaii, and Australia were among her favorite destinations. A trip to England and France with her 4 children is one that she cherished as it held many special moments.
Phyllis enjoyed life to the fullest and she will be greatly missed by those she has left behind. We take comfort in knowing she is once again with her husband, daughter, and other loved ones she so eagerly wanted to see in her last few months.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests you donate to a charity of your choice. A private family interment service will be held at a later date.
LOHUES, Mary “Maria” LOHUES MARY (MARIA) THERESIA LOHUES, of Coaldale, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, passed away peacefully at Sunny South Lodge, on Sunday, June 16, 2024, at the age of 90 years.
Mary is survived by her children John (Shelley) and their children Shaun (Christina), Katie (Lance) Rosen, James (Basia), and Isabelle; Mary-Ann (Ward) Gajdostik and their children Megan (Clayton) Martineau, Caitlin, and Rianne; George (Angela) and their children Connor (Krysten), Natasha, and Miranda; Laura (Gord) Elliott and their children Josh, Carissa (Mitch) Brummelhuis, and Kody (Natalie); Mark (Patricia) and their children Jessica (Cody) Nelson, Christopher (Grace), and Zachary. She is also survived by 19 great-grandchildren and her siblings Riek Vercammen, Ann Janssens, Fenny Vanden Dungen, John Stroeve, Joe Stroeve, Ria Pickering, and Wilma Gerlock, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and in-laws including Jerry Lohues.
She was predeceased by her beloved husband Hank, her infant granddaughter Annie, and her siblings Ben, Herman, Jerry, Theresa, and Diane and other special Lohues and Stroeve relatives.
Mary was born to John and Anna Stroeve in Gramsbergen, Holland, on March 12, 1934, becoming the eldest of eventually 13 children. Mary was an excellent student and she was sad to have to leave school at the age of 12 to help take care of her siblings and her mother since she had wanted to become a nurse. The war years left an indelible mark on Mary in the need to be discreet and private. She was devoted to her family, and her sisters became her best friends throughout life. In 1956, she married Hank Lohues and they emigrated to Canada with all of Mary’s family. Life was hard as a farm labourer’s wife in Picture Butte and Coaldale since there were wood stoves for cooking and heat, little insulation, and no running water in the shacks they lived in, but that changed for the better once they rented a farm in McNally with a beautiful old home. John, Mary-Ann, George, and Laura were born in these years. Uncle Jerry Lohues emigrated to Canada in 1960 to farm with Hank and became part of the family. In 1969, Mary found an ad in the paper for the farm in Chin and, with Uncle Jerry, they were able to fulfill their dream of owning their own farm, where their last child Mark was born. As her mother aged, Mary became very involved in caring for her and her sister Diane in addition to the cooking, cleaning, gardening, and preserving that was required of a farm wife. In 1991, they retired to Coaldale, where they hosted their growing family every Sunday after church. She was so happy to become a grandmother to 16 precious grandchildren.
After Hank and Diane died within weeks of each other in January, 2001, Mary became a relatively young widow, and, for the first time in her life, she was without someone to take care of. It was a novel situation for her. She took solace in reading, arranging the flowers at church, hosting the family on Sundays after mass, and, above all, immersing herself in her Catholic faith, which had always been the center of her life. Mary’s unwavering devotion to God and her very rich prayer life gave her so much peace. Her beautiful spirit shone in her and many of the healthcare assistants who devotedly took care of her at Sunny South Lodge where she lived for the last two and a half years of her life often remarked on it. Although she could be tenacious about receiving the best healthcare possible for herself, she also had an amazing ability to accept with complete grace whatever situation God had planned for her.
Mary was a true example of someone who devoted her life to the service of family and God.

KOWAL. Ralph KOWAL Leaving a hole larger than his big personality; RALPH ALLEN KOWAL, husband to Darlene, passed away in Lethbridge on Friday, June 14th, 2024 at the age of 65 years.
Ralph was born on August 10th, 1958, in Lethbridge to Mary Kowal and Ralph “Bud” Remington. He was the first child of what would later become a large, blended family of nine siblings.
Ralph grew up in Lethbridge, a mischievous, humorous kid. He attended Galbraith Elementary, Wilson Junior High and Winston Churchill High School. At age 18, he met the love of his life, Darlene while working at Canbra Foods. Together they journeyed almost five decades side by side, reaching their 47th anniversary on June 11th. Two souls blurred into one, happily trying each others last nerve until the end with Ralph passing the day before they needed to trim the hedge. Their proudest legacy, raising five children and welcoming twelve grandchildren.
Ralph was a social butterfly, floating daily amongst loved ones. His personality was too large to be alone; to meet him was to make a new friend. He enjoyed the simple things; good food, fast cars, a belly laugh and making an honest living. He worked as a class 1 Truck Driver for decades, operating his own trucking company and also worked for Ken French Livestock, Randa Transport and RCS Cartage. His favourite place was on the road with the radio on. When the kids were young, they often found themselves along for the ride; their favourite place to sleep. As they got older, they became accustomed to Dad’s late-night phone calls warding off the highway blues. He loved drag racing, cruising and the smell of the track. If missing, he could be found in a garage, tinkering, building and mostly bs’ing. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle, here, there and everywhere. Ralph loved to join family for coffee that he didn’t drink simply because he loved “the tea”. As Grandpa, he was always there to give the kids a last-minute ride, cheer on their activities, take them to scary movies or sneak them away for a drive thru treat. He was the best Santa Claus.
Along with Darlene, he is lovingly remembered by his five children: Jennifer Kowal (Dallan Brooker), Jason Kowal (Nicole), Catherine Kowal (Jason Whitmore), Breanne Kowal and Bailey Kowal. He will be especially missed by the joys of his life, grandchildren: Hannah, Kaylee, Declan and Ember Ellerman, Brynnley, Callie and Emslea Kowal, Kaleb and Alexis Venhuis, Parker Whitmore and Carter Pemberton (his dad, Max).
Also left to mourn, his mother Mary Kowal, father Ralph (Laurie) Remington and siblings, Wendy Milligan (Dave Martin), Patricia (Alvin) Mainzer, Doug Kowal, David (Amy) Kowal, Shannon Remington, Derek Remington, Timothy (Bobbi) Remington and Angie Olsen; numerous nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind his siblings-in-law, Diane (Don) Tedesco, Violet Knox, John Nagy and families.
Ralph was predeceased by his stepfather John Kowal, his special uncle John (Carol) Toth, father-in-law, Alex (Ethel) Nagy, mother-in-Law Mary Nagy, and brothers-in-law, Leslie Nagy and Dennis Olsen. The family feels peace knowing he is reunited with his precious granddaughter, Madison Pemberton.
Join us for a celebration of Ralph’s life at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32nd Street South, Lethbridge, AB, on Tuesday, June 25th, 2024 at 1:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations would be warmly welcomed to the Ronald McDonald House, Calgary (rmhcalberta.org).

Isabella dedicated her life to her family and friends, and absolute love of helping others as a Health Care Aide. She loved swimming competitively in her youth alongside her siblings.
