On October 23, 2019 Colin passed away peacefully, after a long hard battle.

He touched the lives of many, anyone who ever met him knew he had a story, a fix and would always be a friend. A man of many trades and hobbies, he loved to keep busy fishing, hunting and lending a helping hand.


Ada Rose McLean (nee Moore)

April 24, 1938 ~ October 28, 2019

On October 28, 2019 Ada passed away peacefully in her sleep.

Anyone who met Ada knew she was the kindest and most generous person you would ever meet. She always had time to chat or have a coffee. If you ever stopped in she always had something to fill you up, if it was supper time she would always tell you not to worry I’ll throw another potato in the pot.


Colin and Ada (nee Moore) McLean


Colin and Ada left behind to cherish their memories their children, Kevin (Deb), Colleen (Glen), Karen (Larry), 14 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, brothers, sisters, in-laws, outlaws and numerous extended family members. Colin and Ada enjoyed doing many things together including camping, fishing and traveling. Their travels, whether with family or friends, was always something they loved. When they returned, they would tell many stories and talk about the antics that took place for a long time after. Their travels took them too many destinations including Hawaii, England, Florida and Jamaica just to name a few. They both enjoyed volunteering at the Legion, museum and were actively involved in the community. Colin and Ada both received volunteer of the year from the Town of Gibbons, which is a true testament to their dedication to the community. Colin and Ada enjoyed spending time with friends and their greatest joy was spending time with their family whom they were extremely proud of.

Roger George Tieulie
April 14, 1939 – September 29, 2019


It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that the family of Roger George Tieulie of Legal, Alberta announce his passing on September 29, 2019 at the age of 80 years.


Left to cherish his memories are his three daughters, Christine, Michelle and Jackie; his three grandchildren, Chad, Daniel and Cayla; as well as three great grandchildren, Carsen, Christian and Linden; four brothers, Maurice, Gerard, Louis and Paul; two sisters, Fernande and Suzanne; along with many nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends.


He was predeceased by his parents, Jean and Mary Ange; siblings, Lorraine and Marcel.


Roger was an amazing man and loving father with a temper like a firecracker. He taught his daughters and grandchildren many things throughout his life. He did not always live an easy life but he certainly lived a full one: from fancy cars, to raising and barrel racing horses, to traveling in his big rigs across the country side. This man could fix anything and if he couldn’t fix it he would jimmy rig it somehow to make it work. Roger will be missed dearly.



 You’ve been our dad
You’ve been our teacher and our friend
You’ve loved us, we all know
We would like to hold onto you now
But we know you have to go

Your time on earth is over
With God you will now reside
And as we walked through our own lives
You’ll be there by our side

We love you and we will miss you
But you will hurt no more
And when our time is over
You will open up the door

To let us join our loved ones
Now living up above
And once again we will all be holding hands
And share again our love



Lillian Marie Martens

January 21, 1943 – September 26, 2019 

With profound sadness we announce the passing of Lillian Marie Martens on September 26, 2019 at the age of 76 years. A loving devoted mother, grandmother and friend to all whose lives she touched.

She was born January 21, 1943 in Erickson, Manitoba to Steve and Anne Katchur. She is survived by and lovingly remembered by her children, Alvin, Debbie, Dwayne, and Cheryl (Jim); grandchildren, Chelsea, Aaron, Riley and Taylor; and all those she loved and touched deeply.

Lil lived a full life as a wonderful mother, homemaker and worker in the property management sector while still a farm girl at heart. Most of all she loved her family and instilled in them strong values that have served them well. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

Those who knew Lil know she hated being fussed over and would rather give than receive. In lieu of funeral services and to honor Lil's character we ask that all who wish to participate make a donation to your favorite charitable organization on the 77th anniversary of her birth January 21, 2020.
