Thank you to Reverend Jo-Ann Hills of the Rosetown United Church for officiating an excellent Service of Thanksgiving for the life of our mother, Loretta Louise Simpson on Monday, February 12, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. The service was conducted in the Shanidar Funeral Chapel in Rosetown. We thank Brenda Hamilton for the music provided by her during the service. Carmen Ledding, we thank you for sharing your gift of song with us as you sang so beautifully “Ave Maria”, a song requested by Mom. We wish to express our appreciation to the ushers, Darren Wenzel and Brent Wenzel; the register attendants, Audrey Walker and Evelyn O’Shaughnessy; active pallbearers, Terry Bodnarchuk, Larry Wood, Jim Crossman, Warren Heatherington, Bill Mann and Kevin Sutherland; and the honourary pallbearers, Ken Hillacre, Norman Stevens, Al Linklater, Laurence Mutlow and Lewis LaFayette. We thank Shanidar Funeral Services for the excellent lunch provided by them.
Thanks to everyone for the baking, flowers and the donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association or a charity of choice. We appreciate the visits, phone calls and personal comments people made. A special note of appreciation to all those who attended the service on such a cold minus 43 winter day!
