A trio of snowmobilers make their way up Boulder Mountain on their vintage snowmobiles on Saturday. About 60 people signed up for the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club’s Vintage Ride, a fun day in the mountains that saw riders tune up their old machines, and break out their classic garb as well. On Sunday, the club hosted drag races at the Frisby Ridge parking lot, with about 50 people entering the fun competition. See more photos online. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review

Visual arts centre moving ahead with exterior plans Visual arts society aims to make Farwell gallery a destination for residents and tourists ALEX COOPER

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

The Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre is moving forward this summer with its big re-development plans, that include a community garden, new landscaping, retail expansion and more. “We’re working on developing ourselves and our grounds as

a major attraction at the west end of town," Ken Talbot, the president of the Revelstoke Visual Arts Society told council on Tuesday, Mar. 10. Talbot and Jackie Pendergast, the society's executive director, spoke to council to talk about the society's successes last year, and their plans for the coming year. The gallery had 21 exhibits last

year, with 2,437 visits. 127 people signed up for art classes last year, 44 people took advantage of the wood shop, 28 joined the potter's guild and the society's membership increased to 165. Eight artists rent out studio space in the building, which helps cover utility bills. The society has five goals: — Create a more user friendly experience; — create a viable staff, volunteer and membership base for the centre; — become operationally and

financially sustainable by increasing revenues, maintaining the building and grounds, and increasing energy efficiency; — developing relationships with arts and culture organizations in Revelstoke and the surrounding area; — and promoting the gallery as a destination. This year, the society plans on opening the gallery for 10 months of the year — up from nine last year. They also intend to expand the shop by 300 square feet and,

Featuring Tributes To These Great Artists!

The mountain community is mourning the death of well-known guide Robson Gmoser, who died after being caught in an avalanche near Rogers Pass last week. Gmoser, 45, died after being caught in a slide while guiding at Sorcerer Lodge on Tuesday, March 10, at around 5:30 p.m. "Robson was a warm hearted, charismatic, and genuine man, a loving husband to his wife Olivia Sofer, and a wonderful father to their three-year-old son Max," wrote Peter Tucker, the executive director of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides on Facebook. "He was a gifted and talented skier, who made the worst snow conditions look effortless — as some would say, he was ‘poetry in motion’." According to the Globe and Mail, Gmoser and an assistant guide were setting a skin track along a route called the Heinous Traverse in preparation for the next day's ski. Gmoser was skiing back down the slope when the avalanche occurred. He was buried under 1.5 metres of snow. The assistant guide dug him out and he was flown to the Golden hospital, but he could not be revived. Gmoser was the son of Margaret and Hans Gmoser, the legendary guide and founder of Canadian Mountain Holidays. He followed in his father's adventurous footsteps, first becoming a sea kayak guide on the Pacific coast, then becoming a ski guide in the mid-1990s. Gmoser divided his time between Canmore, Alta., and Golden, B.C., He ran Battle Abbey Lodge with Roger Laurilla, and ran the company Wild Trip Mountain Adventures with his wife. "Robson truly was a “people” person, and this will not change," said a post on the Battle Abbey Facebook page. "There is no question that Robson lived his life to the fullest, and you could see it the most when he was enjoying his life with Olivia and Max by his side."

A long stream of comments honouring Gmoser followed the posting. "A huge and tragic loss to the mountain community, Robson's laugh, too quiet here, but surely now echoing through the halls of the mountain kingdom," wrote one person. The Glacier National Park avalanche bulletin rated the hazard as moderate that day and warned "warm temperatures, high freezing levels and solar radiation will make pockets of windslab more reactive and may weaken cornices." The BC Coroners Service is investigating the incident.

They also plan on painting the exterior of the building red and creating a public art installation on the front of the build-

ing to make it more attractive to people passing by. Walkways will connect the gallery to Victoria Road. Pendergast said they hope the development will make the gallery an even bigger draw for Farwell and Columbia Park residents, as well as visitors staying at hotels near the Trans-Canada

Highway. Talbot said funding was in place to finish all the professional design work and they hoped to finish the gardens this summer. “The goal is that by August we should have a grand opening,” he said.

Committee to re-visit Kovach Park site plan decision ALEX COOPER

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Revelstoke council has formed a committee to look at its decision for a site plan for Kovach Park after neighbours protested the decision. At its Feb. 24 meeting, council voted for a new site plan for the park that would see a washroom built to the north of the walkway and the playground remain where it is — so-called site plan three. The alternate plan – site plan four – was to place the washroom where the playground is, and move the playground across the walkway. Laurie Donato, the director of parks, recreation and culture, told council that placement was recommended by a security expert and was only opposed by a few members of the Southside neighbourhood group, who wanted more sep-

aration between the skateboard park and playground. A report by Donato, which can be read online, said it would cost $10,000 to move the playground, but it would cost $6,000 to $7,000 more to service the washroom on the north side of the walkway compared to the south. She recommended site plan three be endorsed, which council did. The decision was criticized by several members of the neighbourhood group. In an e-mail to Donato and some members of council, John Teed wrote, "This is not yet a done deal." "I believe that council did not receive the full picture and certainly not the desires of the Southside Community group," he wrote. Daryl Ross, who's backyard adjoins the park, wrote a scathing letter to council on the decision. He

City endorses poverty reduction charter ALEX COOPER

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

After some hesitation, the City of Revelstoke has agreed to endorse a national poverty reduction agreement. Council voted last week to sign on to the National Poverty Reduction Charter that was developed by Vibrant Communities Canada (VCC). VCC is a national organization that works towards reducing poverty across Canada. The poverty reduction charter is a collaboration between various communities to help alleviate poverty across the country. “We envision all Canadians collectively committing to action that will significantly reduce and ultimately eliminate poverty in our communities,” states the charter’s vision statement. “We envision a Canada where everyone has access to adequate and affordable housing, income, nutrition, education, and oppor-

tunities to participate in community life.” Revelstoke is already a member of Vibrant Communities Canada; the Columbia Basin Trust is currently covering the $1,000 annual membership fee. Jill Zacharias, the city's social development coordinator, told council she had been in touch with the organization since 2011 when work began on Revelstoke's poverty reduction strategy. "They've never hesitated to share resources or research and they've been actively engaged in our poverty reduction work," she said. She said endorsing the Cities Reducing Poverty Charter would send a signal that poverty reduction was a priority for the city. "I think what the social development committee and poverty reduction group are looking for by asking the city to sign on to the charter is an acknowledgment that poverty reduction is important going forward for

the community, for the Columbia Basin and for Canada as a whole," she said. “Revelstoke is seen as leader for poverty reduction. We’ve already done so much, but really we’re just in the beginning.” Council was first asked to sign on to the charter in February, however they held off in order to get more information on the potential financial impact of signing on. A staff report said, "By endorsing the charter, there is a possibility that the city may raise expectations in the community that the city will address poverty reduction issues in the future, which may entail additional costs to the city." Still, council voted to endorse the charter at its March 10 meeting. Zacharias applauded council's vote. "It says that our local government is saying this is a high priority and it's important to us," she said.

and misleading in my opinion," Ross wrote. "The fact that a resident from the Southside Group was not invited to take part in the technical review process is not only an oversight, but in my opinion a deliberate tactic to remove any formal record of opposition from the process." He also wrote Donato never informed the group the vote on the plan would be going to council. At the latest council meeting, on Tuesday, Mar. 10, councillor Gary Sulz read out a brief statement responding to the e-mails. He said a committee, lead by coun. Connie Brothers would review the process followed to involve the community in Kovach Park. That committee is expected to report back to council on the site plan only.

Council gives go ahead for medical marijuana bylaw ALEX COOPER

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

The City of Revelstoke has received five inquiries from people interested in building a medical marijuana production facility in town. Dean Strachan told Revelstoke council this news in response to questions relating to a new bylaw that would regulate where licensed medical marijuana facilities could be built in Revelstoke. According to the proposed bylaw, such facilities would be restricted to light industrial zones in the City of Revelstoke. “Because the facilities are becoming quite complex and quite secure, planning staff feels its better to have them in an industrial area," said Strachan. The bylaw is in response to Health Canada regulations that put big restrictions on medical marijuana production. The regulations went into effect

April 1, 2014. Anyone interested in building a medical marijuana facility would have to meet Health Canada’s stringent regulations. They would also need a development permit and building permit from the City of Revelstoke. There would be no public hearing if an application came to the city, said Strachan. “All that is required is they meet the city bylaws for a permit to be issued." Strachan said the bylaw was spurred by a facility being built in Lumby, B.C. True Leaf Medicine is a publicly listed company that is currently waiting on Health Canada approval to begin medical marijuana production. The company also intends on producing pet food using the hemp byproduct from marijuana production. It was started by Darcy Bomford, the founder of a Vernon-based pet food company. Former B.C. Premier Mike Harcourt is the company's Chairman.

Council gave its support to a proposed expansion of the Revelstoke firefighter museum. The Revelstoke Fire Rescue Society is looking to expand its museum to house more artifacts, including their 1938 Seagrave Fire Truck. They have received $45,000 from the Resort Municipality Infrastructure Program and $50,000 from the Economic Development Commission Fund. A staff report by fire chief Rob Girard says they are looking for another $55,000 in funding to cover the rest of the esti-

mated $150,000 museum expansion costs. Council had some reservations about backing the proposal. "My concern is the creep that goes onto the city for maintenance once all this is built,” said coun. Gary Sulz. Connie Brothers said she felt the visitor numbers – estimated at only 80–120 per year – weren't enough to warrant spending money on. Randy Driediger, the president of the fire rescue society, said they intended to work with Cathy English at the Revelstoke Museum & Archives to build visitorship. “We’re trying to make it more of an attraction with respect to not only the existing clientele, but also

firefighters from throughout North America," he said. Alan Mason, the city's director of economic development, said the project was backed by the city's tourism committee. Council voted to back the project, with only Brothers objecting.

AVALANCHE CANADA SIGNAGE REJECTED A proposal from Avalanche Canada to block off the windows to its Mackenzie Avenue office was defeated by Revelstoke council. "My concern is it's essentially taking a retail location and turning

it into an office space," said councillor Aaron Orlando. Avalanche Canada applied for a development variance permit to completely cover its windows in signs. The organization closed its building to the public some time last year in order to create more office space, but they said they still get people knocking on windows and trying to enter, which creates a distraction for staff. To alleviate the problem, they asked to place signs over the windows, including one that would display the day's avalanche conditions. The proposal was defeated by council.

LOUISE DICKSON Victoria Times Colonist

A new date has been set for the trial of a Victoria man accused of the first-degree murder of a young Revelstoke musician in August 2011. Joshua Bredo is charged with murder, sexual assault and unlawful confinement in the death of 20-year-old Daniel Jordan Levesque. Bredo’s trial began Jan. 28 in B.C. Supreme Court but ended in a mistrial last week. The reason for the mistrial cannot be reported due to a publication ban. The new trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 5 and is expected to last seven weeks. Jury selection for the trial has been set for Sept. 29 and 30. Bredo, who was 26 at the time of Levesque’s death, was initially charged with second-degree murder. The charge was stayed in December 2011 due to a lack of evidence. After further investigation, Bredo was charged with first-degree murder in December 2012, and with sexual assault and unlawful confinement in December 2013.

Rural Revelstoke director Loni Parker leads charge to have spouses expenses covered at banquets

revelstokeartscouncil.com

BARB BROUWER Black Press

A group of Columbia-Shuswap Regional District directors are backing a bid to allow their spouses to attend banquet dinners on the taxpayers’ tab. A CSRD policy that was put to bed last summer was hauled out again at the Electoral Area Directors meeting, with a majority of the directors agreeing to reverse the previous decision and bring the issue back for the approval of the entire board at the upcoming March meeting. Adopted in 1981, the travel and expense reimbursement policy that affects staff and the board had never been amended. This had raised concerns about what expenses were being claimed. As well, there was a lack of consistency in how expense claims were being processed. The new policy included limits on per diems, meal expenses, travel arrangements and partner programs and was taken to the board in August where it was approved unanimously – without debate. But Loni Parker, EAD committee chairperson, brought the policy back recently. As she had last summer, Parker pointed out that spouses are adjuncts to the director, do work on their behalf and deserve recognition. Parker made clear she was not asking for taxpayers to cover travel or meal costs, only banquets and reception dinners. “I think it’s important because our spouses are a part of what we do. When they come and give us support at conventions, it would be appropriate for spouses not to pay for dinner,” she said. “I know myself when my husband comes with me, he’s out there talking to people that I don’t get to because I am inside.” As well, Parker said spouses, “take the heat” for their political partners in there own communities. “It’s a nice recognition not to have to pay for their dinner,” she said, asking for the benefit for banquets and receptions at official functions such as the Union of B.C. Municipalities and the Southern Inte-

rior Local Government Association. “I support the amendment but I think, personally, my wife is not coming, it’s just easier,” said director Larry Morgan, who was one of the most offended by policy changes because of the amount of work his wife was putting in on his behalf. Director Paul Demenok was adamantly opposed. “I don’t think it’s appropriate at a convention that’s off CSRD property; it opens the door to way too much negativity,” he said. “Having said that, I do agree spouses do spend time working for us and I think we should find another way to give them recognition on a less grandiose scale.” Demenok asked staff if they had investigated whether other regional districts cover the dinners and was advised that in B.C., seven do and 25 do not. Demenok and director Rene Talbot voted against the motion. The amendment will be taken to the March board meeting for approval.

LETTERS POLICY

Who is "Ozone" Dave Clark? That's a question I, and many other media, asked following the March 12, 2010, avalanche on Boulder Mountain that claimed the lives of Kurtis Reynolds and Shay Snortland. Five years ago, the national media was searching for Clark. He was the organizer of the Big Iron Shootout, the event that took place the day of the fatal avalanche. While reports indicate the Shootout was over by the time a group of more than 100 snowmobilers headed over to Turbo Hill, the avalanche, the Shootout, and "Ozone" Dave were all linked by the media, myself included. Last week, the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club posted a notice on their website about rumours Clark was attempting to get the BIS going again. The club was "in NO way affiliated with this event,” they advised. I wrote about this development in conjunction with an article about the club's events on the

weekend. I tried to call Clark, but the number I had for his sunglasses store wasn't in service. Much to my surprise, I showed up to work on Thursday with a message from Clark on my voicemail. We talked off the record for a bit, and he promised to get in touch when he got to Revelstoke. On his way here, he texted me a video of himself rocking out to ACDC in his truck. He was wearing sunglasses and a white cowboy hat. We finally touched base Friday night at the Grizzly Sports Bar. Clark showed up 15 minutes after I did and promptly ordered a glass of milk. He was wearing a different cowboy hat and had sunglasses over his forehead. He had the BIS trophy with him. Earlier in the day, he snowmobiled up to Turbo Bowl with some friends to place granite memorial plaques for Reynolds and Snortland. Clark showed me pictures of the plaques. They were made from granite, with each man’s name and hometown engraved. The words “Honour, family, purpose, freedom and nature,” were engraved in white. “We want to let the families know we haven’t forgotten about them,” he told me. I wanted to know who Clark was and how he turned the Big Iron Shootout into such a massive event that attracted about 3,600 snowmobilers at its peak

in 2006. Clark was hesitant to speak to me and pretty careful in some of his answers. Only after some negotiating did he let me turn on my recorder. According to Clark, the BIS started in the late 90s as an event called the Sled Head Cup. It was organized by he and his friends as a way of bringing people to Revelstoke. He had to be rescued twice by Search & Rescue, and this was his way of giving back. The Sled Head Cup grew and eventually became the Big Iron Shootout. According to Clark, the event boomed — from 50 people the first year, to 250 the second year, 750 the third year, 2,500 the fourth year, and 5,000 in 2006. Clark's numbers are exaggerated but it can't be denied it was a huge event that attracted many big names in snowmobiling and several movie companies, while furthering Revelstoke’s reputation as a top snowmobiling destination. As Clark tells it, the BIS was not a competition, but if people decided to race while they were up on Boulder, he couldn't stop them. He would lead them from zone to zone, and whatever happened up there was up to them. "If guys wanted to line up against each other, that was their decision and they took responsibility for everything that happened," he said, ignoring the fact there was an event trophy. "The

crowd, they do whatever they want. The BIS is me, myself and I. Wherever I go, that's where the BIS is." The BIS was never sanctioned, but in 2006, there was a two-page advertising spread in the newspaper and the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club and Snowmobile Revelstoke Society hosted a party at the community centre. After 2006, authorities cracked down on the event and threatened the society's management agreement if it didn't get controlled. They capped passes for the day at 1,000 to manage the situation. When I asked Clark if he ever tried to work with the club to sanction the event, he dodged the question. "My heart and my mind are with the deceased and with their families," he said at first. I asked again. "I think it's a very complex question,” he replied. “I think with myself, the club and the society everyone did the best they could with the information available." He chafed when I referred to the BIS as a "renegade event." "It's a free country. We're able to chose what we do and we don't want to do," he said. In 2010, Clark says he was far away from the scene of the avalanche when it happened. He helped with the initial response, but later, he took off before anyone could find him. He was sued

Everyone from the pre-Canskate kids who just learned how to skate, to the club’s coaches took part in the evening show. Pictured, are: 1. The Powerskate kids get ready to do their skate representing the movie Tron. 2. Jackie Bracken, Rhenna Secord, Ryan Howe and Zach Veninsky perform to Bohemia Rhapsody.

Local youth to star in MACHiNOiSY dance performance IMOGEN WHAL

Special to the Times Review

MACHiNENOiSY, a dance group created in 2002, is in Revelstoke debuting PROX:iMiTY RE:MiX (Remix), a production featuring and created by Revelstoke youth. The brainchild of artistic directors Delia Brett and Daelik, Remix is an interactive format where performers use technology systems to trigger specific cues to sound and video while onstage. Remix stemmed from a production Brett and Daelik created in Vancouver with youth aged 19-24, which was based on youth identity issues. After its success, Daelik and Brett wanted to go to other communities. “We couldn’t apply for the grants out there because we didn’t want to tour a youth performance,” Daelik says. “We wanted instead to go to communities and create unique projects with the local youth.” When the BC Arts Council created a Youth Engagement grant, the game changed. Currently, PROXIMITY:REMIX is headed for three communities around B.C. Revelstoke is the first stop. “It’s been a learning curve,” Daelik laughs. “In Revelstoke, the youth involved are younger, from 13-25, and we are discovering the

different things that affect them.” They could never have made it here, Daelik emphasizes, without the support of Miriam Manley, manager of the Revelstoke Performing Arts Center (RPAC). While Remix offers the majority of the funding through its grant, the community needs to offer a place to rehearse and perform. Man-

ley ensured both were available by accessing a youth funding opportunity through the BC Touring Council in her efforts to bring youth programming to the RPAC. “It allows for large blocks of time for youth and will hopefully lead to more projects,” Manley explains. “I like to see youth residencies. I would like the RPAC to

be more than a rental performance space but instead a living breathing production house.” Manley and Daelik both praised the group Made in BC — Dance on Tour, a not for profit that describes itself as “a network of presenters, an arts service organization, and a provider of dance arts outreach activities throughout the province,”

for connecting Manley and Remix. Meanwhile, 10 local youth are currently involved in an intensive two week performance practice schedule. Brett and Daelik, whose experience stems from theatre as well as dance, incorporate theatre and voice exercises. “We work with the bio of each person,” Daelik elaborates. “We like to find the unique movements of that participant, exploring his or her capacity for movement, not necessarily teaching technical dance.” Brett and Daelik do their best to select participants they feel will benefit from performance with a sense of increased self worth, while gaining experience and confidence. In the theatre, the group practices movement and voice. Watching them work together, aware of each other and the space around themselves at a rehearsal while Brett offers creative advice, is a captivating experience. With groups like Remix working with members of the community, not only are new art makers being encouraged, but a new audience for the arts develops. This new audience, in turn, can help supports more arts coming to the community. Be sure to check out the performance at RPAC on Saturday, Mar. 21, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the Visitor Centre, Art! First and online.

RSS students starred in the Snow Queen AMELIA BROWN

Revelstoke Secondary School

Beginning on February 26, the Revelstoke Theatre Company (RTC) put on the dazzling production, The Snow Queen. With a rich and colourful set and an expressive cast of well-developed characters, this familyfriendly play was a sheer delight to behold. Set in a fantasy land, The Snow Queen follows brave, selfless young Gerda as she travels through the seasons in search of her best friend, Cei, who was taken by the Snow Queen. Along the way she meets many other colourful characters who help

her to succeed in her quest, from adorable flowers in a spring garden to tough robbers running the autumn forest. Many students from Revelstoke Secondary School (RSS) had roles in this play, including two of the main parts. Grade eight student Frankie Howe was mesmerizing as the protagonist, Gerda, and grade 12 student Matt Kurtenbach gave a strong performance as Cei, in this captivating adaptation of the classic fairy tale. “It was such an amazing experience, working with actors of all ages,” said Howe. “I would highly recommend anyone getting into the arts because it’s so

rewarding.” The Snow Queen boasted a cast and crew of about 80 people, and was produced on a relatively short timeline, so everyone involved had an extremely busy few months to make it all come together. The time and commitment from all of the cast and crew members was evident when they finally took the stage to perform. Thanks to the time and effort of approximately 80 people, the Revelstoke Theatre Company put on The Snow Queen, and captivated audiences with it’s charm and hilarity. All members of cast and crew deserve a heart felt “well done” for all their hard work and dedication to the project.

Sheena Bell helps run a youth mentoring program where high school students at Revelstoke Secondary School in grades 10-12 can mentor elementary students in grades 1-7. Sheena started this program because when she was in university she volunteered at the brother sister program, but when she moved to Revelstoke, she found that there was no mentoring program and she sees it as a good opportunity for youth to be connected. The mentees are chosen by teacher and parent referrals. The mentors and the mentees are matched based on their interests and there are about 20 matches so far. They do many activities together such as swimming, playing sports, art, crafts, games, going to museums, cooking, riding bikes, etc.

Ski racers perform well at Red Mountain Keurig Cup event MARY CLAYTON Revelstoke Ski Club

This past week saw some strong results from our Revelstoke FIS racers, who were competing at a Keurig Cup event at Red Mountain. The girls, especially Emily Unterberger, performed very well the whole week, reported FIS coach Gregor Druzina. Emily placed consistently near the top in nearly every race, earning fourth and sixth place in two GS races and a fifth in the slalom. “She had some really good runs and scored some good FIS points,” explained Coach Druzina. “As a result she has been invited to travel with the BC Ski Team to the Canadian Nationals in Mt St Anne, Que-

four western provinces will gather at Revelstoke Mountain Resort for four days of racing, March 19 – 21. Thursday and Friday will be GS races; Saturday and Sunday will be slalom. All events will be held on Hollywood and every day will have an awards ceremony at the plaza at the base of the mountain. Come out and cheer on our Revelstoke racers. RMR has some of the best snow in southern B.C. and this will be a great opportunity to show off our home hill and our home town. Go Revelstoke!

bec, at the end of this month.” Jamie Park placed 13th in GS and 15th in slalom and first-year FIS racer Ravi Vliet got the “most improved’ award on the first day of GS racing. “Ravi is improving a lot,” said Coach Druzina. “I believe that she has huge potential. She is working hard and is on the right path.” Mitch Smith also had a good series, with a sixth in GS and a sixth and eighth in slalom and was on the podium among the U18 skiers in slalom and GS. The FIS team is now training at Silver Star for the remainder of the week. Coming up this week in Revelstoke is the club’s biggest race of the season—the U14 CanAms. The best 12 and 13-year-old skiers from

MURRAY Shirley Temple 1936 – 2015

Shirley Temple Murray of Red Deer, Alberta breathed her soul away into her Savior’s arms on Monday, March 2, 2015 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre at the age of 78 years. Shirley was born on July 1, 1936 in Grimsby, Ontario. She was the fourth child of five, to Lloyd and Elsie Townsend. She met the love of her life, Jerry, at age thirteen, and married him five years later. In 1970, Shirley and Jerry moved their eight children to Alberta. When Jerry passed in 2010, they had been married for fifty six years. Shirley was a woman of character, wisdom, grace and loyalty. She will be remembered for her unwavering faith in God, fierce love for her family, amazing ability to forgive and her wholesome approach to life. Shirley will be lovingly remembered by her four sons; Gordon Murray (Karen) of Blackfalds, Douglas Murray (Kim) of Salmon Arm, B.C., Robert Murray of Canoe, B.C., Anthony Murray (Tami) of Revelstoke, B.C., three daughters; Wanda Murray of Edmonton, Cheryl Wohlgemuth (David) of Edmonton, Temple Murray of Red Deer, twenty two grandchildren, thirteen great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren, as well as brother Louis Townsend (Bernice) of Hythe and sister Joan Fisher of Sherwood Park. She was predeceased by her Husband Gerald Murray, sons Norman and Joseph Murray, her parents and two older brothers. A private Celebration of Life will be held in the summer of 2015. If desired, memorial donations in Shirley’s honor may be made directly to the Red Deer Hospice Society, 99 Arnot Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta, T4R 3S6. Condolences may be sent or viewed at www. parklandfuneralhome.com.
