STETTLER TOWN COUNCIL

Approved $348k worth of new vehicles

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Stettler town council approved the

purchase of over $340,000 worth of new

vehicles after examining the results of

two tenders. The decisions were made at

the July 6 regular meeting of council.

The results of two tenders for new

vehicles were presented one at a time by

Director of Operations Melissa Robbins.

Robbins presented the results of a

tender for a new municipal sidewalk

tractor for which $160,000 had been

budgeted by council in the 2021 capital

budget.

“The request for proposal was

posted on Alberta Purchasing

Connection and the following submissions

were received for a base model

municipal sidewalk tractor,” stated

Robbins.

Robbins stated four bids were

received: a Willie brand vehicle from

Superior Truck Equipment Inc. for

Church

$130,790 with a trade-in value for the

old vehicle of $17,500; MacLean brand

vehicle from CubeX Equipment Ltd.

for $125,647 and a trade-in offer of

$8,000; Trackless brand vehicle from

FST Canada Inc. for $142,935 with a

trade-in offer of $12,500; and lastly, a

Holder brand vehicle from Westvac

Industrial Ltd. for $174,013, who also

declined to take the old vehicle on a

trade-in.

“Staff evaluations of all machines

were completed, and the Willie was

the preferred model because of

pricing, serviceability, ride functions

and overall operations,” stated

Robbins.

Robbins stated the final price,

including attachments and trade-in of

the old unit would be $152,520

excluding GST, below the budgeted

amount and it was her recommendation

that the town accept this offer.

Councillors unanimously approved

the offer from Superior Truck

Equipment Inc. for the Willie vehicle.

Can’t wait to travel outside of North

America? Re-book your vacation to

New Zealand or Australia? Check off

your bucket list those trips you’ve been

dreaming about–a cruise on the

Yangtze River in China or reaching

the heights of Machu Picchu in Peru?

Or maybe your dream is a safari or big

game shoot in Africa?

These trips, however, won’t happen

safely until a lot more people in the

world get their

COVID jabs.

Families and

communities in

low-income countries

have

received less

than one per cent

of all vaccines

administered to

date. Yet these

are the countries

that endanger

not only our

return to safe

international


In order to stop the

mutation of COVID-19,

wealthier countries must

get vaccines into the arms

of all eligible peoples of

the world.

travel, but they are the countries that

will unintentionally, and with disastrous

human cost, keep breeding

variants of concern until they can

reach some level of herd immunity.

I’m not a scientist, but I do readily

accept the professional explanation for

how viruses mutate. They are a hardy

bunch and until herd immunity is

reached worldwide, we’ll be living in a

yo-yo world of health scares, public

health restrictions, overworked health

care workers and economic fallout.

We need only turn on the news and

hear about Tokyo, Britain, Israel,

California, Missouri, Taiwan,

Australia, Belgium to understand this

virus is tougher than any political

spin. What we so desperately want—no

masks, no restrictions on in-door

crowds and no COVID concerns—

might be fleeting at best.

Viruses happily mutate into stronger

and more transmissive varieties in

areas where vaccinations are few,

social distancing is difficult and

proper hygiene is challenging. These

stronger viruses then get on airplanes

and ships with unsuspecting traffickers

(those without symptoms,

including some fully vaccinated) and,

viola, they arrive in first world countries

to re-ignite yet another COVID

wave.

The key to the whole COVID

problem is to get ahead of new and

more infectious variants of the virus.

If we don’t, our current vaccines will

become less effective or ineffective

over time.

In order to stop the mutation of

COVID-19, wealthier countries must

get vaccines into the arms of all eligible

peoples of the world. To not do so,

will only breathe oxygen into future

variants of concern.

Remember the logistics that

provinces went through to get distribution

systems in place to effectively jab

as many people as possible, as quickly

as possible. No small task for a rich

country. Then envision how much

more difficult this process is in poorer,

more densely populated countries of

the world.

And here’s where Canadians can

personally help. The Canadian government

and UNICEF, a global leader in

vaccine distribution to high-risk

groups in lower-income countries,

have signed a donation matching

agreement.

Every dollar we

donate to

UNICEF, the government

will

match. Twenty

people for every

$100 donation

will get vacinated

which

means your $100

will enable 40

people to receive

COVID

protection.

Governments

are contributing doses and dollars to

COVAX to help the world get vaccinated.

But now we as individuals can

do our bit.

UNICEF is a star performer. It vaccinates

more children for common

diseases than any other organization

and, as such, has more trained personnel

and distribution systems in

poorer nations than any other nongovernment

organization (NGO).

Today, those of us who desperately

want life to return to normal can help

ourselves by helping others. Go to

www.unicef.ca/GiveAVax to donate

any amount or text VACCINES to

45678 to donate $10. It’s a great feeling

to do our small part to curtail a virus

that has no intention of being defeated

as long as large swaths of the world

remain unvaccinated.

ELNORA COUNCIL

Pumphouse application denied

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

CAO Sharon Wesgate shared with

council that the application for the

massive upgrades to the village pump

house was denied.

The application to the Alberta

Municipal Water/Wastewater

Partnership (AMWWP) was submitted

in late November of last year.

Infrastructure Technologist Denette

Leask responded saying no new

approvals will be given due to ‘recent

provincial budget constraints’ for the

2021/2022 fiscal year.

The project will remain in their

system for further consideration once

future budgets are set.

Dry Island Developments

An accumulation of uncut grass and

weeds has emerged at one residence in

Elnora after an inspection took place

on June 8 around the village.

The undeveloped property owned by

Rick Cloutier of Dry Island

Developments received an Unsightly

Premises notice from the village to

have the property cleaned up.

In response to this, a letter of appeal

was made to council after a conversation

with Stephen Poburan of the Red

Deer County Bylaw Office who advised

for a letter of appeal.

Cloutier stated in this letter that he

has lived in Elnora for 14 years and

this property has never been

developed.

“We purchased this property in

February 2016 and it had never been

required to mow the grass, control

weeds or remove deadfall prior to that

date,” he stated. “While it was the

intention of Dry Island Developments

to develop that parcel of land in cooperation

with the Village of Elnora, that

agreement was deemed null and void

by yourselves (the Village of Elnora)

and nothing has been done to further

this development.”

He noted it is still vacant, undeveloped

land which begged the question

as to why they must keep it mown if

there is no danger to public safety and

not a large presence of weeds there.

“Dry Island has complied with your

requests in the past to keep it mown

because it seemed the right (and

respectful) thing to do.”

He added that other properties

within Elnora have been abandoned

and ‘totally neglected and the buildings

on site are falling apart.’

Council ultimately passed a motion

that the appeal by Dry Island

Developments Ltd. be denied and compliance

with the unsightly premises

notice issued on June 8 to mow the

grass and weeds be undertaken on or

before July 31, 2021.

Robblee stated during the meeting

HANNA COUNCIL

Poppy project approved

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Hanna town council approved a

request from Cheryl Stevenson representing

the Community Poppy Project

to install a 20’ x 2’ x 10’ metal sculpture

to honour war veterans in Legion

Park.

At the regular meeting on Tues.

June 13, the structure will be made at

a cost of $14,200 through donations and

$4,500 provided by the town.

With positive comments made

online, Stevenson took the initiative to

proceed with the project, including

contacting Sean Olmstead of Metal

Workz to see if he would be interested

in designing and constructing a similar

type of sculpture, to which he

agreed.

“I started this because of Charlie

[Fielding] and what he did for our

school and community,” said Cheryl.

In the meantime, there was some

formal and informal fundraising happening

for this project, with COVID-19

delaying the progress of this initiative.

The Legion originally agreed to

receive and manage the funds for this

project but then chose to have the town

office facilitate as to not confuse where

donations were going.

This group indicated their approval

of the design which had changed significantly

from the beginning,

primarily as a result of more funding

being available than originally

anticipated.

As the project increased in size the

group approached the Special Areas

regarding placement of the sculpture

on their green space adjacent to Legion

Park and west of their administration

building.

Special Areas, although supportive

of the project, did not want the sculpture

located on their property and

indicated that they would provide inkind

support for building it.

The sculpture is a metal cross

approximately 9.75’ high and 5’ 7’ wide

with one large poppy at the apex of the

cross and smaller poppies decorating

the remainder of the cross.

There are two panels on each side of

the cross that will have pre-drilled

holes to accommodate plaques which

will display and recognize the names

of veterans.

The placing of names on the panels

in terms of who manages this and sets

the policies will be determined soon.

Columbarium purchase

Two quotes were obtained to address

a request to put in a third columbarium

within the Hanna Municipal

Cemetery. Council was tasked with

deciding between Sunset Memorial &

Stone Ltd. for the purchase of a 30

Niche Canadian Mahogany Legacy

Columbarium in the amount of $20,955

or local business Dawn Memorials for

$23,173 offering a slightly smaller size.

Approved in this year’s capital

budget was $17,000 for this purchase.

Council ultimately agreed to go with

Sunset Memorial. “I know we want to

support local but when it’s $2,200, it’s

taxpayers money at the end of the day,”

said Mayor Chris Warwick.

Doug Todd Memorial Park

Gayle Smigg approached the town

with an idea to recognize and honour

Doug Todd for his volunteer commitments

and service to the Town of

Hanna and its residents.

Smigg suggested that Hanna

Crescent be renamed as Todd Crescent

as it is the street where Doug and

Marilyn Todd lived for several years,

and Mrs. Todd still resides in the

crescent.

Administration then suggested that

the green space in the center of the

crescent may be more suitable with

something to dedicate to the park like

signage, a memorial tree or bench

which she agreed with as changing the

legal name of an existing street can be

time consuming.

Administration received all being

positive comments from neighbours

towards the situation.

Administration has also been in discussion

with Mrs. Todd who indicated

she and her family were honoured that

this was under consideration and indicated

strongly that if there were any

concerns expressed that she would not

want it to proceed.

Council approved a green space

located in Hanna Crescent be designated

as the Doug Todd Memorial

Park in recognition of the contributions

he has made during lifetime as a

lawyer and advocate for the Town of

Hanna. Design options and cost estimates

for a sign will be presented next

meeting.

Alberta Transportation and that he

contacted the provincial government

department to find out if the contractor

involved was returning

because it appeared the work wasn’t

finished.

Robblee, who noted the material in

question was described as “microsurface,”

stated there is paving material

built up in gutters and patched

potholes.

“They’re full of tar,” said Robblee,

referring to drains.

Robblee reported Alberta

Transportation forwarded the concerns

to the contractor in question.

Coun. McDougall stated he was concerned

about the quality of paving. “I

just thought it was kind of a crappy

job,” said McDougall.

Mayor Richard Elhard agreed,

saying, “It seems rough. It doesn’t

seem like a finished product.”

Coun. Rod Zinger said the work has

pros and cons. “It looks pretty but it

sure is rough,” said Zinger. Zinger

noted that he thought microsurface is

a material used to fill in ruts on

highways.

McDougall stated if you don’t speak

up about concerns, then it’s assumed

you don’t have a problem with the

work. Robblee stated the town will

wait and see what response comes

from the contractor.

Handi-van request

Councillors turned down a request

from the local handi-van group to use

the former fire hall as storage or

parking for the group’s vehicles.

Coun. Kilner stated she had an

interest in this topic as it could be connected

to the lodge, and excused

herself from the discussion.

Councillors discussed the request,

including how much it would cost the

town rather than renting out the

21074he0

facility, which would generate revenue.

Arena facelift

Councillors instructed Robblee to get

quotes for painting of the arena’s exterior

after reading a memo on the

subject.

Robblee stated councillors recently

toured the arena and were aware the

north and south interior walls require

painting.

A quote for the work was just slightly

over $20,000.

“The budgeted amount for this

project was $10,000,” stated Robblee’s

memo, who further noted that was for

painting of the arena exterior.

He stated the rest of the money

would have to be approved by council

to be moved from the unrestricted surplus

account.

Instead, Coun. Zinger suggested the

town get quotes for painting just the

arena exterior, which he guessed

would come in at less than $10,000.

Councillors unanimously passed a

resolution to that effect.

Thank You

The Devereux family would like to

thank all those who expressed kindness

to us after the passing of Harry. Your

visits, phone calls, cards, food and

4 J uly 22'21 HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB. ECA REVIEW

Bashaw home owner says town won’t

deal with bad drainage problem

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism

Initiative reporter

ECA Review

A Bashaw property owner

wants the Town of Bashaw to do

more with a serious drainage

problem on her property.

Hazel Brooks, 82, who’s lived

at her current property since

2011, told the ECA Review in a

July 15 phone interview that she

owns two adjacent lots which

had no serious drainage issues

before the construction of a

major new building in town.

“Before this new school was

built, there was no problem,”

said Brooks, who added she

never noticed water problems

on her property until

2016.

Brooks said the

problems started

when Battle River

School Division

began construction

of the new school in

2016, which included

the demolition of the

old building.

Brooks said during

construction “they

brought in a lot of

dirt” and two drains

were placed that run

down 25 feet.

She stated the culvert

sits “at quite an

angle” so when it

rains or snow melts the water

really moves, bringing with it

sand and gravel which resulted

in a ruined garden, including

shrubs and perennials.

As the water runs across her

property, stated Brooks, it eventually

arrives at a row of trees

which divide Brooks’ two lots

and then seems to disappear.

She said she’s worried because

water doesn’t just disappear.

In the summer of 2020 Brooks

stated heavy rain caused water

to run across the property and

threaten her home and the only

thing that stopped it was a pile

of lumber which Brooks had sitting

there waiting to be

assembled into a deck.

The senior citizen stated that

Water accumulating as a result of a drainage issue on Bashaw

resident Hazel Brooks’ property. ECA Review/Hazel Brooks

the damage to her property is

obvious when anyone looks at

the drain that comes down

between 51st Street, which runs

along the east side of the school

property, and the municipal

sidewalk that runs by the

school. She noted the drain is on

town property.

Brooks stated she’s complained

to the Town of Bashaw

on several occasions about the

situation and did have some discussions

with the town on

fixing the problem.

She noted the town offered to

purchase one of her lots, but she

said the town’s offer wasn’t fair.

Brooks stated the Town of

Bashaw offered to buy the

vacant lot for $18,500 but that

Brooks had to

pay all

expenses,

including construction

of a

berm.

Brooks stated

that she feels

$30,000 would

be a fair offer,

which would

cover expenses

related to the

drainage

problem.

As she

declined the

town’s offer in

September 2020,

Brooks stated it

appears the town’s offer was

final.

Brooks stated she doesn’t

really want to sell the

vacant lot but is worried

about her house.

The offer was confirmed

in an email to the ECA

Review from the Town of

Bashaw July 16.

Scapa’s St. Peter’s Lutheran

Church celebrates 100 years

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative

reporter

ECA Review

It’s not often you see 100

year anniversaries celebrated

in Alberta, but one church

community in Special Areas

4 is gearing up to do so. St.

Peter’s Lutheran Church near

Scapa, Alta. is marking its

100th summer in that area

with a much-anticipated

get-together Aug. 7. There will

be a service at 2 p.m. with

former Pastor Colin Millang

of Sherwood Park conducting

the Centennial service followed

by lunch, refreshments

and fellowship. Open to all

interested in attending.

Church member and volunteer

Les Stulberg stated the

COVID-19 pandemic loomed

over the congregation’s’ 100th

anniversary plans all this

year, but with the provincial

government lifting restrictions

July 1, the party is now

on.

“It’s been in the planning

stages for some time,” said

Stulberg by phone July 8.

Interesting history

Stulberg stated St. Peter’s

Lutheran Church, which has

been declared a historic site,

has quite an interesting history,

as the church was

originally built in

Wetaskiwin in 1911 but within

10 years the congregation disbanded

and mostly returned

to the United States.

At that time Scapa didn’t

exist, and in fact there wasn’t

even a rail line in the area.

However, Rev. Julius

Zaetschky travelled through

the Scapa area holding

Lutheran services in homes.

The reverend heard St.

Peter’s was vacant, so he

made arrangements to move

the building to what was

called the Dowling Lake area

at that time.

A group of men went to

Wetaskiwin and disassembled

the church, including

cutting the steeple off, and

moved it south where the

parts were picked up by volunteers

in the Craigmyle

area.

The parts were then taken

to the Dowling Lake area and

reassembled in April, 1921;

the volunteers likely oblivious

that the church would

stand in that spot for a

century.

100th anniversary

Stulberg stated the celebration

will be a one-day event

Sat., Aug. 7 at the St. Peter’s

Lutheran Church grounds

near Scapa.

He said the schedule calls

for a church service at 2 p.m.

followed by lunch, fellowship

and visiting. Plus, volunteers

hope to have a history booklet

available on the church’s

100th anniversary and tours

of the church itself. The event

is casual and no invites are

required.

Volunteers pointed out the

events open to anyone who

wishes to attend.

Special feeling

Stulberg stated St. Peter’s

Lutheran Church’s solitary

dignity gives its community

powerful feelings of comfort.

“It’s just sort of a pride for our

community,” he said.

“It’s a beautiful, quiet,

peaceful spot down there.”

St. Peter’s Lutheran

Church is located south of

Endiang; use Sec. Hwy. #855,

and the church is located to

the east at the intersection of

Twp. Rd. #334 and Range Rd.

#154.

Correction

A story that appeared in last

week’s edition of the ECA

Review requires correction. In

the story about St. Peter’s

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB July 22'21 5

Property owner tells council lagoon

problem wasn’t his fault

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism

Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Stettler county council heard

a presentation at their July 14

regular meeting from a property

owner who told them a

release of water from the Red

Willow sewage lagoon was not

his fault.

Glen Goertzen of Mike-Ro

Farms Ltd. appeared before

council to respond to a report

filed by county staff at the May

12 regular meeting of council.

At that meeting Director of

Municipal Services Andrew

Brysiuk reported the release of

treated effluent from the Red

Willow lagoon in the fall of 2020

and “...the outfall of treated

effluent did not fully follow the

established ditch and there was

some accumulation in an


adjacent wetland, so the

drainage was stopped...

Examination in the spring has

shown that the ditch may no

longer be consistent with the asconstructed

grades due to use

by farming operations that have

deposited cultivated soils into

the ditch.”

Goertzen stated he disagreed

with that assessment.

“There was no way the

farming operations (caused it),”

said Goertzen.

He noted that he’s seen high

points in the route where the

water was supposed to go, and

pointed out one spot he’s seen a

three and a half foot rise which

would obviously cause an issue

for running water.

Then in spring 2021 they met

in person at the site and saw

that the effluent would not have

followed the planned route.

The property owner pointed

out that statements in a previous

ECA Review story

covering the May 12 Stettler

county council meeting

claiming farming practises contributed

to the problem were

wrong and needed to be

corrected.

He also noted he never

received samples of the water

after it was released onto his

land.

Goertzen noted the County of

Stettler does not have an easement

on his property, then said,

“I don’t think I want to be the

holding pond for the Red Willow

sewage system.”

Goertzen then stated he was

disappointed the county staff

didn’t work with him on the

water release and without an

easement he doesn’t think they

could release water on his land,

which he farmed for many

years and which he now rents

STETTLER COUNTY COUNCIL

Buffalo Lake south shore

plan passes second reading

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Stettler county council moved one

step closer to adopting a new area

structure plan for a part of Buffalo

Lake along with rescinding a plan

connected to a controversial

development.

The move was made after a public

hearing held during the July 14 regular

meeting of council.

Councillors passed second reading

of Bylaw 1662-21 Buffalo Lake South

Shore Area Structure Plan (ASP), the

final approval of which would also

include repealing the Buffalo Lake

South Shore Intermunicipal

Development Plan (IDP) and the

Paradise Shores ASP.

The proposed Paradise Shores

camping development became a hot

topic several years ago when many

Buffalo Lake area residents opposed it.

The proposed bylaw is a solution to

Stettler county’s desire to accommodate

development near Buffalo Lake.

“It has been the county’s experience

that the current arrangement and content

of the Buffalo Lake South Shore

IDP does not accommodate types of

development that the county is prepared

to see in the area,” stated the

memo.

“Approval of all three municipalities

to change the Buffalo Lake South

Shore IDP has been difficult to obtain

and as a result the county has decided

to withdraw from the Buffalo Lake

South Shore IDP.”

Reeve Larry Clarke opened the

public hearing and asked Director of

Planning Jacinta Donovan if there

were any letters in support of the

bylaw, and she noted there was one.

He then asked if there were any letters

opposed, and she read six which

included the concern that the bylaw

goes against the spirit of the existing

south shore IDP which maintains

“lake lifestyle.”

A statement given to the ECA

Review July 14 by lake resident

Corinne Beke-Cruickshank stated,

“The south shore communities have

proposed a reasonable compromise to

close the unlimited density loophole.

“Apply a 50 per cent limit on multiunit

development properties to each

plan area separately, leaving 438 units

available for one development east of

Sec. Hwy. 835 and 262 units west of it,

or apply a reasonable density limit of

three units per acre to all RV parks or

other multi-unit development

proposals.”

When Clarke asked if anyone

wished to speak in favour of the bylaw,

there were no takers.

When he asked if anyone wished to

speak against, much of the next 45

minutes were filled by these speakers.

Bruce Olson stated he spoke on

behalf of two organizations and both

had similar concerns, including unacceptably

high density of people and

insufficient lake access.

Julie Rattan spoke on behalf of the

Rochon Sands Heights Community

Association and stated Bayview

Street, which runs along the lake,

shouldn’t be exempt from road standards

and also opposed higher

population density.

A number of other residents also

spoke in person to oppose the bylaw

and stated their concerns included

increasing population density, possible

harm to the aesthetics of the lake and

the fact that the controversial

Paradise Shores was “still fresh in

everyone’s minds.”

The reeve then asked Parkland

Community Parkland Services (PCPS)

planner Craig Teal if he could address

those concerns.

Teal, who noted concerns from the

public consultation were taken into

consideration in the bylaw’s current

form, noted the bylaw protects natural

areas of the lake regardless of whether

population density goes up.

Teal also stated the possibility of a

public wastewater system increases if

population density goes up, which

would reduce things like septic tanks

which could leech into the lake. He

also stated the south shore area in

question is a development node and

was intended for development.

Coun. James Nibourg asked if the

proposed bylaw

ends the Paradise

Shores proposal.

Director of

Municipal

Services Andrew

Brysiuk

answered, “It

kills the regulatory

process.”

After Clarke

closed the pubic

hearing, councillors

debated the

bylaw.

Councillors

approved second

reading by a 6 to 1

vote and then

approved tabling

third to a future

meeting in order

to consider information

from the

public hearing.

Property owner Glen Goertzen showed this photo to Stettler County

council July 14 to show how water released from the Red Willow

lagoon didn’t go where it was supposed to. ECA Review/Submitted

OBITUARIES

Cheerful, positive and fun loving

Lawrence Edward George Letniak

April 30, 1951 – June 25, 2021

Lawrence Edward George Letniak

was born April 30, 1951 at the Consort

Hospital to James and Mary (Tym)

Letniak. He completed the family of

four children, joining siblings

Ron, Darlene and

Ellen.

He was to call the

Hemaruka, Alta. area home

until his passing on June

25, 2021 at the Coronation

Hospital at the age of 70.

After graduating from

Consort High School,

Lawrence received a

Science degree from Walla Letniak

Walla University, WA and it

was here that Debbie Siemsen from

Sandpoint, ID caught his eye and his

heart.

Love blossomed and after their marriage

on June 29, 1975, they both took a

one-year teaching assignment in

Zimbabwe, Africa.

Upon their return to Alberta, they

set up their home on the Letniak farm

near Hemaruka and the 45-year

farming adventure began.

Their lives were complete when two

beautiful children came to bless their

home, Ryan and Jodi.

They lived busy lives and life was

good for many years; Debbie caring for

the children as well as working in the

field of education, and Lawrence doing

Lived life to the fullest

Elmer Joseph Klein

Sept. 20, 1944 –

July 7, 2021

The Klein family would like to notify

you that Elmer Klein died on July 7,

2021 surrounded by his family. He had

a peaceful conclusion to his journey

with dementia.

He is survived by

Vicky, his wife of 52

years (and 11

months!), his son

Emery (Christina)

and his son Gage

and daughter-inlaw

Victoria.

He had the pleasure

of being

Klein

grandpa to five

beautiful grandchildren:

Eythan,

Amy, Janelle, Evan

and the very-long-awaited Kalissa.

He is known to his grandchildren as

Grandpa Fix-It, confirmed by a mug

that said, “If Grandpa can’t fix it, no

one can!”

The community has known him as

Santa Claus for 43 years and he is

known affectionately as Fudd by his

brother, Pat (Sylvia), and sister,

Audrey (Wayne).

Elmer came to Alberta from

Saskatchewan when he was fouryears-old

and resided on the family

farm near Delburne until the last year

of his life.

He completed his journey under the

care of the exceptional staff at

Timberstone Mews in Red Deer who

looked after him with genuine affection

and kindness.

He lived his life to the fullest, finally

exceeding the nine lives he always

seemed to have and we are grateful for

all the memories we will carry with

us.

In keeping with Elmer’s wishes, we

will celebrate his life among family

and friends.

A mass will be held at St. Mary’s

Catholic Church in Red Deer on Thurs.

July 22, 2021 at 11 a.m., followed by a

gathering at the family farm. A private

interment will take place at a later

date.

Grandchildren her passion

It is with heavy hearts we

announce the peaceful passing of

Helen Annie Dean at the age of 88 on

July 12, 2021 in Strathmore,

Alta.

She was born in Castor,

Alta. on May 29, 1933 and is

survived by her four children,

14 grandchildren, six

great grandchildren with

one more on the way and

numerous extended family.

Helen is predeceased by

her son, Terry Sitter and

Dean

granddaughter Shelby

Sitter.

Helen was a strong independent

woman who raised her five

what he loved most...farming.

However, sadness struck their home

shortly after Debbie’s retirement.

Bravely, she battled cancer but passed

away on Jan. 6, 2018. Lawrence and

Debbie had been married for over 42

years.

Lawrence continued to farm

and in time he became

acquainted with Sheri

Parchment Townsend from

Lacombe.

Once more, wedding bells

were to ring and Lawrence and

Sheri pledged their love to each

other and were married on

March 8, 2020.

Several months later,

Lawrence’s leukemia symptoms

seriously surfaced and during

the next year, Sheri lovingly cared for

him. He continued farming duties to a

lesser degree, but always took joy in

doing whatever he could do right until

his final day of life. Lawrence and

Sheri had been married almost 16

months at the time of Lawrence’s

passing.

Lawrence had a cheerful, positive

and fun-loving way. He had a genuine

interest in people. He often listened

without judgment and this allowed

him, when appropriate, to give encouragement

and timely counsel as well.

Taking time to be involved in the

broader community was important to

him; he helped where needed,

children as a single parent in Calgary,

Alta.

Her passion was caring and raising

her many grandchildren,

socializing and spending time

with her friends.

She will be deeply missed by

her daughter-in-law Corinna

Werth and son Glen Sitter who

was with her until the end.

“All your pain is over now

mom, you can truly rest in

peace with Terry.” Love forever

Glen.

A graveside service will be

held in Castor, Alta. on

Tues. July 20, 2021 at 1 p.m.

including serving on the Special

Areas and Medical Centre Boards for

many years.

Two elements were central to

Lawrence’s life: his love for God; and

his love for people, beginning with his

family. He was a devoted husband,

father, brother, grandfather, uncle and

friend.

Lawrence lived his life with genuine

authenticity being the same at home,

at work, at church, or in the community.

He walked through life

courageously, facing many trials and

difficulties over the years, including

advanced leukemia in the last year.

His faith in God enabled him to

carry on and express gratitude even in

adversity. His joyful spirit, his kind,

gentle and encouraging ways will be

greatly missed.

Lawrence is survived by his loving

wife, Sheri; children: Ryan (Trina)

Letniak of Edmonton; and Jodi

grandchildren: Chloe and Braden

Advertorial

Tandem in demand

Cont’d from Pg 1

Tandem truck

The director of operations presented

the results of a search for a new

tandem truck for the Town of Stettler,

complicated by the scarcity of 2021

models.

“Because of the known delivery

delays with obtaining a new 2021

tandem, optional proposals were

accepted for in stock tandems,” stated

Robbins, who added that council had

previously approved $200,000 in the

2021 capital budget for such a vehicle.

“Industrial Machine Inc., Viking

Cives Ltd., Glover International

Trucks Ltd., and New West

Freightliner all submitted multiple

proposals.

“...administration is recommending

the purchase of a new HX615 2020

tandem, with Renn gravel box with

sander connection capability from

Glover International Trucks Ltd.

The truck was viewed in Red Deer

and meets all our required specifications

and has a one month delivery.

The truck price is $186,096.25

excluding GST.” Robbins stated in her

report Glover declined the take the old

2009 truck on trade, so the town will

sell it themselves.

Councillors unanimously agreed to

purchase the International for a total

price of $195,635.25, including extra

warranty, plus tax.
