Joseph Morris Sanders died peacefully on Thursday 15 January at age 82, surrounded by family. Born Joseph Morris Srolovitz 7 October 1926 in Calgary, he was raised on a homestead farm near Scollard, Alberta, in a Jewish farming community. Morris attended Thompson and Rumsey schools. In 1941, his parents became proprietors of the Red & White Store in Rumsey, and Morris and brother Ralph continued farming until 1946 when they joined their parents’ business. From 1950 to 1959, Morris was a bulk agent of the British American Oil Company in Rumsey. He married Miriam Freedman of Calgary on 5 April 1959. From 1960 to 1975, Morris and Ralph owned and operated Drumheller’s Whitehouse Hotel (later Drumheller Motel and Hotel), which they expanded to include an adjacent motel and the Greyhound Bus Depot. Morris served as a City of Drumheller alderman 1969-1971. In 1975, he relocated to Calgary and became a commercial real estate salesman. Morris and Ralph entered the apartment business in 1976. Morris had a congenial smile, a joyous laugh, and a passion for life. He was generous, modest, and pragmatic, and he unhesitatingly helped the poor, visited the sick, and welcomed strangers to his home. He and Miriam loved to travel and saw the world. Morris treasured his family above all else. Morris was predeceased by father Harry Srolovitz (née Strulovici), mother Mary (née Rosenzweig), brother Ralph, and son Simon. He is survived by: his wife Miriam; son Barry (Shanno Sen) and children Yuval and Sapna; daughter Alias (Kelly Taylor); son Harry (Kirsten Olson) and children Jonas and Anna; sisters Shirley Corenblum and Helen Dlin; and two nieces and five nephews. Burial services were held 16 January at the Erlton Jewish cemetery with Rabbi Menachem Matusof officiating. The family extends profound gratitude to the Rockyview General Hospital and to his physician Dr. Jacqueline Lewis. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Rockyview Hospital Physiotherapy Unit in memory of Joseph Morris Sanders.
