Clive village council approved

second and third reading of their

updated fire protection bylaw at the

regular council meeting on March 22.

Councillors previously approved

first reading of the revised Bylaw

#546-21, then publicly advertised it for

comment from residents.

There were no comments submitted.

During initial discussions councillors

As was mentioned in the discussion,

if such a requirement was in the

bylaw, all residents, including councillors,

would be expected to follow the

requirement, and if it wasn’t followed,

violation would be occurring.

Healthy outcomes

ECA Review

Alix village council approved their

2021 operating budget plus the property

tax bylaw and seemed happy

there would be no mill rate increase

this year.

The decisions were made at the

April 7 regular meeting of council.

The 2021 operating budget was presented

to councillors by Chief

Administrative Officer (CAO) Michelle

White, including changes that reflect

council decisions in the strategic plan.

She stated a part of the administration

expenses was reduced.

“Admin-Professional Fees has been

dropped to $15,000,” stated White.

“Prior years the budget for this line

was $25,000. This $10,000 reduction is

due to the recently established general

reserve which can be used for unforeseen

professional services such as

legal counsel.”

Further, White noted the purchase

of a new mower for the village will

impact actual tax revenue.

Councillors unanimously approved

the 2021 operating budget.

Property tax bylaw

The CAO presented the proposed

2021 property tax bylaw, noting it took

a bit longer to prepare because the provincial

government changed the

requisition amounts for things like

education after village staff already

completed the draft.

She said both the budget and

bylaw had to be re-jigged.

The CAO stated residential

and non-residential mill rates

will remain the same as last

year, which are actually the

same mill rates that date back

to 2017, the fourth year in a row

with no change.

Coun. Vicki Soltermann

stated she was content with


“I think we’re doing good,”

said Soltermann, noting the village

was holding the line but

also getting infrastructure

projects done.

Soltermann said Alix property

taxes were among the

highest in Alberta villages in

years past.

Mayor Rob Fehr agreed with

Soltermann, but added that the

village has completed plenty of

other projects that don’t get as

much publicity as


“Don’t want to lose sight of

that either,” said the mayor.

Coun. Tim Besuijen stated

the village staff worked hard to

In her report Hazelton

noted over two dozen different

on the property if the application

was approved by

included market garden,

wished to speak in favour or

against the application and

no one stepped forward.

Penalties waived on unpaid firefighting bill

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Stettler county council waived penalties

applied to a ratepayer’s unpaid

firefighting bill after it was claimed

there was confusion in the billing


The decision was made at the March

10 regular meeting of council.

A letter from a county ratepayer

explained they had a fire on their property

and ended up with a substantial

firefighting bill, plus their tax bill.

They paid their tax bill but didn’t

realize the firefighting bill also had a

penalty connected to it.

“We had a grass fire on April 25, 2020

which the Stettler Fire Department

was called in to assist with,” stated the

March 2 letter.

“July of 2020 we received an invoice

in the mail for the cost to have the

Stettler Fire Department out.

“We then consulted with our insurance

in regards to having the invoice

paid through them for which we were

advised that if we did so our yearly premium

would have a much larger

increase overall and it would work out

to be over and above the cost of invoice

from the county.”

The ratepayer explained they

intended to eventually pay the bill but

didn’t make it a priority due to financial

hardship and also didn’t know it

had a penalty connected to it and could

be rolled over onto their tax bill.

A staff memo in the agenda package

stated the ratepayer was correct. “In

December 2020, the fire invoice that

had incurred in July of 2020 was transferred

to taxes on Dec. 31, 2020,” stated

the memo from Sharon Larsen, tax and

assessment clerk.

“Once the invoice is transferred to

taxes it falls under the tax bylaw for

the February penalty of eight per cent.

“The accounts receivable invoice did

not show that the outstanding amount

can be transferred to taxes and could

receive a penalty.

“We are adjusting the accounts

New subdivision gets closer to reality

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

A new residential subdivision in the

Town of Stettler got one step closer to

reality as town council passed second

reading of a re-zoning application.

The public hearing and vote were

held at the April 6 regular council


After Mayor Sean Nolls called the

public hearing to order, Director of

Planning and Development Leann

Graham described the application to

re-zone lot 2, block 1, plan 1923086

located at 4501 57 Street from “P:

Public Use” to “R2: Residential

General” in order to make development

of a subdivision possible.

It was stated at a previous council

meeting this parcel of land is known

in Stettler as Rotary Campground,

and lies immediately west of the

Stettler Agriculture Society grounds.

“The applicant (Tracy Peters) has

requested the rezoning to accommodate

the development of a 20 +/- lot

residential subdivision including multifamily

housing (duplex) as well as

single family housing,” stated Graham

in her presentation, who also noted the

re-zoning and subdivision applications

are being processed by the town at the

same time.

“The proposed rezoning is in accordance

with the Town of Stettler

Municipal Development Plan (Bylaw

2041-13) which was adopted in 2013 and

identifies this land as future


Graham stated she received three

letters which appeared to all be

opposed to the application.

The first, from neighbourhood resident

Ryan Bolin, included concerns

about flooding.

“I’m concerned about the drainage

issues that will arise from taking out a

large green space that acts as a buffer

for flooding when the Red Willow

Creek is at capacity,” stated Bolin’s


I’m concerned about

drainage issues that will

arise from taking out a

large green space that acts

as a buffer for flooding.


“Having lived in our current residence

since 2007, I have a lot of

evidence of prior flooding. Removing

green space that is able to soak up

moisture and replacing it with asphalt

and houses will surely create issues for

all residences in the area.

“Has a stormwater management

report been completed in regards to

this subdivision application?”

Bolin also stated he didn’t see any

need for more residential lots in

Stettler right now and was also

concerned the effect this proposed subdivision

would have on the agriculture


The second opposition letter came

from Melissa Huraj, who stated she

was a resident of 54 Street. “...I am concerned

about the following,” stated

Huraj’s letter, which stated, “Sheltered

green spaces are hard to come by in


“The lot has potential to be

enhanced to further beautify this area

of town, in a park-like setting.

“The trees are not only beautiful,

but as you know this area is low-lying

and therefore the water table is high...

can it be anticipated that water/

flooding won’t be more of future issue

once all the trees are destroyed?

“If the development goes ahead, how

will this impact the agriculture


Huraj also stated there were other

residential options in Stettler and construction

would have a negative effect

on the neighbourhood.

The third opposition letter came

from the Stettler Agriculture Society,

which noted removing trees on the site

would reduce the sound barrier.

The society stated they were concerned

about conflict with neighbours,

and stated the society was already

having conflict with some neighbours

who apparently phone the police to

complain about events going on at the


The society suggested, if the subdivision

goes ahead, that a berm be built to

block sound.

this last year,” added the memo.

Larsen noted in the memo that the

penalties on the firefighting bill added

up to $148.

During discussion Chief

Administrative Officer (CAO) Yvette

Cassidy noted the County of Stettler

will be using a portion of its Municipal

Operating Surplus Transfer (MOST)

grant from the provincial government

to offset unpaid taxes and penalties.

The MOST grant was offered to

municipalities by the Alberta government

to address lost revenue or

expenses caused by the pandemic.

Councillors unanimously approved

the ratepayer.

concerns, such as water management,

aren’t part of the re-zoning process

and would be addressed when subdivision

and development occurs.

Coun. Gord Lawlor asked if home

buyers can be reminded an agriculture

society is in the neighbourhood.

Graham stated the town has no control

over purchasing agreements.

Coun. Scott Pfeiffer asked what

could be done about noise concerns.

Peters, who was at the public

hearing, stated she spoke to Bolin

directly about a berm and other details

and he seemed reasonable and open to


Peters noted she also spoke to the

Agriculture Society and those discussions

also seemed promising and


Coun. Malcolm Fischer asked about

the layout of the subdivision, and

Peters answered the development

and backyards against the agriculture

society lands.

Peters pointed out many of the trees

on site are poplars and are near the

end of their life span, and while she’d

also like to keep as many as possible,

that may not be an option.

She noted planting new trees is a


Coun. Cheryl Barros stated she

doesn’t have strong memories of many

people using that area as a park.

The public hearing closed, followed

to a future meeting.

MOST funds

Councillors were updated on the

Municipal Operating Support Transfer

(MOST), a provincial government

grant program offered to municipalities

to offset expenses or lost revenue

due to COVID-19.

Clive council, like many councils in

the region, have made MOST funds

available to organizations in the community

with a deadline of March 31.

CAO Kenney noted two groups, the

Minor Hockey Association and Morton

Historical Centre, haven’t supplied all

of the documentation necessary in

order to receive their entire claim.

Kenney noted Clive was eligible for

about $77,000 in MOST funds, and all

but about $500 was spoken for.

Councillors discussed the possibility

of allowing MOST funds to help cover

a large water bill incurred by the community

hall board, but that was

defeated in a vote.

Councillors unanimously agreed to

use the remaining Clive MOST funds

to purchase COVID-19 barriers for the

village office.

He suggested the village invest in

creating a small walking park filled

with benches, tables, sidewalks and

a place for outdoor enjoyment.

He also suggested having this park

south of his cafe as the space is currently

empty grassland.

to make this project about furthering

having an outdoor space people can

moment, mentioning if this was a real

option, he would start fundraising to

get it going.

ECA Review

Premier Jason Kenney was always

reluctant, and from a public health

standpoint always late, to impose fast

and hard circuit breakers when a

known COVID wave was just about to

crest. He was slow and reluctant to

penalize grievous violations of public

health guidelines; rather, his inactions

affirmed that the right to assemble

(anti-mask rallies), religious freedoms

(Stony Plain church) and individual

rights (packed bars) had primacy over

health and safety.

Jason Kenney received a lot of flak

and a lot of scorn for his lacklustre

approach and Alberta’s dismal COVID

results, but he took it on the chin for

us, his rural and libertarian base. He

never lost his

focus, either, to

slay the deficit


$52.50 in Canada; $98.70 in US;

$183.75 Overseas.

Kenny knows citizens

travelling between areas

with restrictions and those

without would continue,

and would in all probability

increase travel to nonrestricted

rural areas.

even as the

pandemic continued

to rage.

So, what did

rural Alberta

MLAs do for

him—16 turned

on their leader

and broke rank

to deny the seriousness

of the

third wave.

I don’t believe

for a minute

that Premier

Kenney wanted

to do this third

lockdown. I

believe in his heart he continues to

hope and pray that this virus will start

acting like a simple flu, run its course

and go away.

Unfortunately, as Premier, he daily

sees evidence of rising inflection rates,

a growing shortage of hospital beds,

medical staff burnout and deaths,

numbers that 16 MLAs and many in

rural Albertans are just not prepared

to consider. We just want our individual

freedom to do whatever we

want, whenever we want, however we


Unfortunately, our Premier could no

longer ignore reality. Even as his 16

MLAs are demanding regional lockdowns,

he knows citizens travelling

between areas with restrictions and

those without would continue, and

would in all probability increase travel

to non-restricted rural areas.

Kenney reluctantly accepted that

our medical professionals and health

care providers aren’t widgets that you

can push and push for more production

without major consequences. He’s

learning that these medical ‘widgets’

aren’t just reproduced when you need

more, that actually those working in

ICUs have multiple years of experience

to reach their current levels of


Lockdowns are not only intended to

save lives, but are intended to keep our

hospitals functional so that elective

surgeries can continue—and that

includes elective surgeries for rural

and libertarian patients.

Kenney wasn’t prepared for a hard

run. After being in Ottawa for decades,

he thought Alberta would be a cake

walk only reinforced by his overwhelming

election victory. Pander to

rural Alberta, bow to the oil industry,

slash the budget, take out unions and

professional associations (doctors,

nurses, teachers) and hammer Justin

Trudeau. A winning strategy, guaranteeing

his name would join the ranks

of our beloved former premiers, Peter

Lougheed and Ralph Klein.

What he forgot was to live in the

present, rather than the past—or the

future. Both Klein and Lougheed operated

in the present, not the ‘hopeful’

world. Both made

good decisions and

some bad decisions,

but their

success came

through righting

bad decisions or

making complete

U-turns when


Neither man

had a carved-instone

master plan

that couldn’t be

adjusted when circumstances

changed. What

Premier Klein

promised in an

election during a

boom was significantly

different in practice when bust

years unexpectedly swamped Alberta.

The reason we are in the mess we

are in today and the general malaise

that has settled over the province is

because Kenney tried so hard to play

down the virus to please his now 16

dissenting MLAs, libertarians and his

rural base—and failed.

Turns out Premier Kenney isn’t

more powerful than the virus, and so

today he finds himself in the unenviable

position of pleasing no one.

Roundhouse Society’s

role in fishing derby

Dear Editor,

There appears to be some misunderstandings

to the involvement of the

Hanna Roundhouse Society (HRS) in

last year’s Sept. 26, 2020 Carp Fishing

Derby at the Hanna CN Reservoir. I

will try to clarify.

The Hanna Roundhouse Society

property is adjacent to the CN

Reservoir and access to the reservoir

from the west cuts through the HRS


When I found out the HUB was

planning a Street Market for the

“Rodeo” weekend, I thought “how nice

it would be to have another event for

our community” and the fishing

derby was initiated.

Consultations were had with

Hanna’s chief administration officer

for use of the CN Reservoir; permission

by the landowner of property

along the reservoir and the east

access; with Hanna’s Fish and

Wildlife Officer, Mr. Neufeld for permission

and instructions to host a

fishing derby event; and the HRS

Board and members for volunteers for

the event.

Frightening answers

for lovers of freedom

Dear Editor,

What a difference a week makes!

Last week we assumed we were

Albertans “strong and free”, free to

politely accommodate those still afraid

of COVID, but also free to question the

increasingly contradictory COVID


How can “asymptomatic” people

(those without COVID symptoms) pass

on the virus?

Are “estimates of cases”the result of

the “false positives” and “false negatives”

of PCR (polymerase chain

reaction) testing?

Why must we fear the “potentially

more severe” new “variants” which

vary only 0.3 per cent from the original


How can we believe “experts” who

make conclusion about these variants

despite the “missingness” of data

because the cases so far are few?

Turn to Will, Pg 7




Marketing/Digital 403-575-9474

Support was given by all for


Generous donors provided for five

“Hanna Buck” draws, awarded to one

participant drawn from each of the

five fishing categories.

The expenses of property preparation

east of the HRS property and

along the spillway, gathering information

about the CN Reservoir and

Prussian Carp, private property signage

and participant instructions were

covered privately. There was also

business support and assistance from

the Hanna Hub.

Although no fish were caught, this

may have been due to the time of year.

However, this event filled a void in our

community and participants enjoyed

this space!

I had discussions with participants,

volunteers and the Fish and Wildlife

Officer about restocking the CN

Reservoir; all seemed very supportive,

with some offering to help.

So, this was how the HRS was

involved with the 2020 Hanna Carp

Fishing Derby and where stocking the

CN Reservoir came from.

The motivation behind it was: To

provide another activity with the

Hanna street market event since the

Hanna Indoor Pro Rodeo rodeo

weekend was cancelled due to COVID;

To provide an awareness of Carp in the

CN Reservoir and see if any Carp

could be removed; To see if there was

interest in fishing and stocking the CN

Reservoir and; To bring awareness to

the Hanna Roundhouse Society.

Even though the HRS was unable to

host events in our roundhouse, we

could still offer our property and volunteers

and host an event for our


If the CN Reservoir is stocked with

native fish, it is highly unlikely the

HRS would hold future fishing derby’s.

Will we bow down?

Cont’d from Pg 6

I submit that we have a serious

“missingness” of common sense!

Have you noticed the sudden change

in metrics to end this third lockdown?

Steps are based on “immunity

levels”. No longer will case numbers

be counted, but immunity – meaning

the number of Albertans who have

been vaccinated.

Do you think these numbers will

include those of us who have recovered

from COVID, or is the goal to just keep

Albertans locked down until all have

been vaccinated?

And just why is Alberta Health

Services (AHS) so angry with James

Coates and Grace Life Church? Is it

because the church has been open for

months with NO Covid cases?

The pastor’s statement that COVID

is just a seasonal virus and should be

treated as such, goes against the fearmongering

narrative of AHS, who are

desperate to control Albertans.

And what has happened to our

Premier who ran on the slogan of

Alberta “strong and free”?

It appears he has had a total brain

Recreation funding a sore spot for Castor, Coronation

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Castor Mayor Richard Elhard and

Coronation Mayor Ron Checkel visited

County of Paintearth chambers on

Tues. April 6 to discuss a letter sent to

council showing the serious shape recreation

funding is for the towns.

Their issue came down to where the

funding was being drawn from with

the small municipalities compensating

any leftover expenses.

The funding model hasn’t been

viewed or discussed in approximately

11 years.

Mayor Elhard mentioned that there

was a misconception that the letter

came from Castor

this was actually

ECA Review

Forestburg council, at their regular

meeting on Thurs. April 8, discussed

the recent choice of the provincial

COVID-19 rules, pulling back to Step 1.

In Step 1, restaurants and taverns

are no longer allowed to hold dine-in

services, being restricted to patios and

outdoor settings as well as takeout.

Council agreed they wanted to do

their part and help as much as they

could in alleviating hardship for small

businesses on a local level.

No motion was made but council,

through Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Dwight Dibben who also acts as

development officer, directed him to

assist business by issuing development

permits to allow use of public sidewalks

for outdoor spaces through their

land use bylaw.

The village and businesses will also

work with the Alberta Gaming, Liquor

and Cannabis Agency to get alcohol

served outdoors in these areas to ultimately

gain revenue to stay afloat.

Plot layout changing

A request from the Forestburg

Cemetery Society has asked council to

consider a possible layout change to

the Baptist Cemetery.

Council agreed to this request which

will have future plots spaced differently

from the existing setup.

According to the Cemetery Society,

the existing layout consists of a series

of head-to-toe plots separated by a six

foot walkway.

Each plot on the right would have

approx. 2.5’ - 3’ x 5’ column of earth to

support a monument.

The proposed change will be to move

the left-hand row of plots ft. into the

existing six foot walkway, creating a

three foot walkway between each row

of plots.

Doing this will provide a more stable

column of undisturbed ground to support

any monument placed on the

right-hand plot.

The column of earth would be

approx. 5.5’- 6’ x five feet of undisturbed


This increased size for the column

will lessen the potential for column

Updated land use bylaw replacing old one

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

It’s out with the old and in with the

new with Bylaw 698-21, the new Land

Use Bylaw set to replace the outdated

one which has officially undergone

first reading.

Todd Pawsey, director of community

services gave highlights of the adjustments

made to the 130 page document

including sections concerning cosmetic

matters and legality while at

County of Paintearth’s regular

meeting on Tues. April 6.

As many sections have been added

or entirely changed the decision to

replace the old bylaw was made.

An open house will take place on

April 20 to hear opinions from residents

on this revised version.

Under Solar and Wind Energy

Conversion Systems (SECS/WECS)

minimum standards were already set

in place but have been revisited under

the new bylaw.

Of note, changes include minimum

separation distances of turbines from

any road – 330 ft. (100 metres) or the

greater of blade length and 20 metres

or from any leased or non-leased property

boundary line.

From any dwelling on lands leased

for wind energy developments – the

greater of 500 m (1640 ft.) or as meets

AUC Rule 12 permitted levels from any

dwelling on lands not leased for wind

energy developments – the greater of

1000 m (3280 ft.) or as meets AUC Rule

12 permitted levels.

Provincial and federal agency

approvals are now to be expected of


Before construction commencing at

the provincial level, the Alberta

Utilities Commission (AUC) approval is

needed prior to applying for development

permits and will include all other

provincial department circulations

and referral approvals such as the

Alberta Electrical Systems Operator

(AESO), Alberta Environment and

Parks, Alberta Transportation,

Alberta Health Authority and any

other provincial government department

or agency.

Current reclamation plans are to

meet at a minimum the AER requirements

of removal of all improvements

to a depth of 36” for subsurface


New mapping has been created to

help modernize the document as well.

Through engagement with

landowners through their recent

survey, it was found that many discretionary

uses needed to be changed to

give more power back to landowners in

what they do on their property, which

is now reflected in the new bylaw.

Discretionary use means a use for

which a development permit may be

issued at the discretion of the

Municipal Planning Commission.

Licensed Marijuana Facilities (LMF)

for production and/or retail usage has

been introduced to the land use bylaw.

Any LMF under 200m2 is proposed

to be defined and allowed as a discretionary

use within all districts except

for hamlets, residential areas and recreational

districts whereas a large

facility over 200m2 will require a

development permit within and contain

all measures created by the

Municipal Government Act (MGA).

Companies could possibly build one

of these facilities within Agricultural

Districts, Airport Fringe Districts,

Hamlet Industrial Districts, Natural

Resources Extraction Districts, Rural

Commercial Industrial Districts and

Crowfoot Crossing.

Tags have been added to stop orders,

penalties and fines as a way for administration

to still enforce the bylaw to

‘give it some teeth’ while not going to

extreme lengths that stop orders and

other compliance measures covered

for large operations.

“It gives enforcement but we don’t

have to go the full length of a stop-work

order,” said Pawsey.

When a municipal tag has been

issued under this bylaw, the person

getting the tag instead of being prosecuted

for the offence, will pay to the

county the penalty specified on the

Municipal Tag which can vary in

amounts depending on the offence.

A schedule of fines and their prices

were added as well, ranging from $250

to $2,000.

County residents will soon be able to

pursue beekeeping for domestic or

commercial honey production provided

the location and placement of

hives is per the regulations and guidelines

made for certain districts.

Administration added that the

spaces they would most likely permit

include wide open spaces away from

residential areas and that this portion

was added as more interest has come

up for beekeeping in recent years.

Homemaker: A deeply fulfilling role for Reid

at the Stettler hospital, at age


Ruby is survived by her

daughter Merinda (Dave) of

Rimbey and son Doug of

Elnora, as well as her three

grandchildren Emily (Brett)

Speight, Winston (Jolynn)

McNiven, and Serena (Grant)

Senchuk and six great-grandchildren

Janet Isobel Grice


Janet was born on Jan. 20, 1927 to

parents William and Jeanie Lyon in

The Pas, Man.

Growing up in the north with three

sisters, Helen was the elder with Billie

and Pat her younger twin sisters, was a

lifestyle that would provide experience

that would serve her well all her life.

She learned many skills such as gardening,

canning, sewing and knitting

as well as helping her dad in his woodworking/construction


Janet was the tomboy in the family.

Janet left school early at the age of 15

and began working in a bank

making her way from messenger

(because messages

were hand delivered

throughout the town), to

clerk/cashier. She was

always amazing at math,

adding columns of numbers

in her head.

Janet met Alan Grice and

they enjoyed many of the

same things. Dancing, badminton

and playing cribbage


were things they loved to do together.

They married on Aug. 19, 1948 and

began a family early in their marriage.

Gordon was born in June of 1949,

Glenis in September of 1956, Bob in

January 1958 and Kevin in September

of 1960.

In 1951, they moved even farther

north and settled into the mining community

of Lynn Lake, Man. Their first

house had plywood walls and a canvas

roof. Needless to say it took a lot of

chopped wood to keep warm during

the 60 below weather that was all too

common north of the 56th parallel.

They followed the mining community

all of their working lives moving

to Frazer Lake, B.C in 1966 and Hinton,

Alta. in 1969.

Family holidays were often spent

travelling to visit extended family in

The Pas, Winnipeg and Vernon B.C.

with a couple of forays into the U.S.

Janet and Alan enjoyed travelling

and visited Australia, New Zealand,

Papua New Guinea and Fiji after they


During retirement, Janet and Alan

kept busy gardening and taking homemade

jams and jellies to farmers


Janet knitted toques; Alan made the

pom poms which they sold or gave to

the grandkids. She also sewed her own

design of purses and lovingly became

known as “The Bag Lady”.

Even during their retirement they

loved to move, living in High River,

Alix, Hinton (again), Jasper,

Wetaskiwin and New Norway and

after Alan passed away she stayed

involved with the Seniors Centre until

she moved to the Paintearth Lodge in

Castor, Alta.

The children often joked that our

Janet and Alan were always firm

believers in Christianity and church

membership was important. Later on

in life they made an even deeper commitment

to serving Jesus and held

home Bible studies for years,

After a short struggle with

dementia and severe arthritis

in her back, Janet passed

away peacefully on Mon,

March 29, in the evening.

Janet was predeceased by

her parents William and

and Pat Ambrose; brothersin-law

Clyde Ambrose, Jim Kneale,

Women’s League.

Over the years Louise

treasured the many vacations

she and Doug took and

especially the winters spent

in Hemet, California.

Louise will be remembered

for being generous,

loving, fun, stubborn, direct

and resilient which was

never more evident than

when battling her health

issues. She rarely complained

and continued to be

loving and supportive to

Doug and the family.

We will all miss her, but

no one more than her

beloved Doug. They were

inseparable during their 62

years together and their love

story is an inspiration to all.

A private celebration of

Louise’s life was held on

Tues. April 13, 2021 at Our

Lady of Grace Catholic

Church, Castor, Alta. at 1


The interment took place

at Our Lady of Grace
