REID, Josephine 1920 - 2017 On Friday, November 17, 2017 we lost our matriarch; our mom, our Grandma Jo, our GG, who passed away peacefully at Timberstone Mews, Red Deer, Alberta. Josephine was born August 28, 1920 in Wetaskiwin, the only daughter to Carl and Sarah Jevne. She and her 4 brothers, Clarence, Freeman, Tustan and Pat enjoyed playing many sports, including fastball, where Jo pitched for the boys team. They participated in the community bands and choirs, and kicked up their heels at country dances. Jo left home for the big city, taking her nurses training at the Grey Nuns. She met Stan Reid in Edmonton and the two were married in 1948. They soon moved to Red Deer with their young family. Jo had her hands full with three rambunctious boys, but despite their best efforts, she survived those years with sanity and sense of humour intact! She worked in Public Health known as the “needle nurse,” terrifying children all over, but none more than her eldest son! In 1975, Jo gently nudged her boys to invest in some land out west. That decision would bring “The Land” into fruition, grandma’s favourite place in the world and a sanctuary for the family and so very many friends. Jo was pre-deceased by her husband, Stan in 1993 and well, “pretty much everybody else”, according to her. She leaves to mourn her sons, Jim (Maggie) Reid, Bill (Juanie) Reid, Pat Reid; her grandchildren, Sarah (Scott) Martin, Nicki (Ryan) Engler, Jamie (Dusty) Mcgillicky, Whitney (Scott) Klaus, Shelby Reid, Courtney Reid and James Reid; her great grandchildren, Loranna and Alandra Martin, Vayda and James Engler, Louis and Miles Mcgillicky, Ayla Klaus and Easton Reid; and countless extended family and friends she loved like family. Please join us in celebrating Jo’s life at a memorial tea; December 12, 2017 at the Red Deer Legion, 2810 Bremner Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta from 1-4pm. In lieu of ﬂowers, please donate to the SPCA at www.albertaspca.org or the Red Deer Hospice at www.reddeerhospice.com. Condolences may be sent or viewed at www.parklandfuneralhome.com.

WILTZEN, Braden Matthew 1982 - 2017 Our sweet darling boy, Braden Wiltzen, was taken from us tragically on Saturday, November 18, 2017 in Calgary AB at the age of 35 years. Braden was raised and completed his schooling in Red Deer, ﬁrst at Koinonia Christian and then Hunting Hills. He worked in the Financial Industry, his last six years at Canoe Financial where he made so many good friends. Braden was a gentle soul with a great and tender heart. There was nothing he would not do for those he met, and it is shown in the amazing outpouring of grief from around the world since his passing. Braden was tall and handsome with an incredible smile and laugh that shielded a ﬁercely competitive drive where he strove to be the best at all he did and where coming up short just meant you had to be better next time. He excelled in sports, be it hockey, golf, badminton, or even ping pong. Braden was the type of man that people gravitated to and wanted to be with, from little kids, to seniors, and everyone in between. Braden leaves to mourn his mom and dad, Wendy and Tim; his loving sister and best friend, Lori and very special brother in law, Chad Frank and their children, Avari, Lyric, and Petra who he absolutely doted on, and they him; his gramma, Mollie Gyori, as well as many uncles and aunts and cousins. He was predeceased by his brother Matthew Timothy; uncle Bill Gyori and three of his grandparents. He gave his heart to the Lord as a young boy, and it is in this knowledge that we know he is in the arms of Jesus Christ. A Funeral Service will be held in the main auditorium of CrossRoads Church, (SW corner of 32 St and highway 2), 38105 Range Road 275, Red Deer County, AB on Monday, November 27, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of ﬂowers, memorial donations in Braden’s honor may be made directly to Suicide Information and Education Services, 4101 - 54 Avenue, Red Deer, AB T4N 7G3.
