Sept. 29, 1930 - April 18, 2013 On April 18, 2013 Edith Walker passed away, after a valiant battle against cancer, at the age of 82 years. Edith was an extraordinary leader in Falun and Wetaskiwin communities.

of Jim Monds

June 18, 1931 - April 24, 2012 His weary hours and days of pain His troubled nights are past And in our aching hearts we know He has found sweet rest at last. Nothing can ever take away The love a heart holds dear Fond memories linger every day Remembrance keeps him near. If tears could build a stairway And memory make a lane We’d walk the long road to reach And bring him home again. Every day in some small way Memories of you come our way Though absent you are ever near Still missed, loved , always dear. Your loving wife Marlace, Wayne ( Judy), Tim ( Patty) Bonnie ( Mark), Grandchildren and great grandchildren.

We would like to extend some huge thank-you’s to our family, friends and neighbors for all of the cards, emails, phone calls, flowers, food, memorial donations, hugs and precious memories bestowed upon us with the loss of our Mom & Grandma, Elsie Hoffman. Our deep appreciation to Dr. Bunting, Dr. Izac, all of the nurses and other health care professionals who helped care for and encourage her during her time in the Ponoka Hospital and Care Center. When the realization that her time with us was coming to an end you helped her leave us comfortably and peacefully. Thank you to Beatrix Schimer for visiting Mom in the hospital and leading us through her service of remembrance. To Marlon & Sheila - you are angels among us. Thank you so much for your guidance & friendship, and Sheila, for your beautiful voice. To Bob & Debbie, saying thank you seems hardly adequate and you are angels among us as well! The lunch was wonderful and we appreciate you both very much. To the staff at the Rimoka Golden Leisure Lodge, thanks for everything over the years. Mom called the Lodge her “home”, and you are all a part of what made it so special to her. Sincerely, Larry, Sharon, Justin & Jesse Hoffman; Stan, Debbie, Tyler & Kelsey Hoffman; Debbie & Lorne Nagel
