Condolences to the family of JOHN CHARLES WILSON (JACK)


WILSON, John Charles

August 29, 1941 - September 12, 2016

John (Jack) Wilson was born August 29, 1941 in Edmonton, Alberta to Mike Wilson of Alberta and Ann Clark of Scotland. Jack spent his life in Alberta and proudly called the Valley his home for over 30 years. He married Karen Arlene Stuart on May 12, 1989, where they happily lived amongst friends in East Coulee. In early 2014 Jack’s world was turned upside down losing Karen to a brief battle with cancer. It is heavy hearts that we say good-bye to our spirited friend, full of wise-cracks and opinions. It is with happy hearts that we dream of how he longed to re-unite with the love of his life, Karen. Jack is mourned by all who knew his genuine character. He will be missed by his friends, family and old colleagues who still reside in the Valley. No funeral service will be held to respect Jack’s wishes.

ZIEGLER, Lloyd Edward

March 17, 1958 - September 6, 2016

We are truly saddened to announce that on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 Lloyd Edward Ziegler had passed away. Lloyd was the second youngest born to the late Martha and
Reinhold Ziegler on March 17, 1958 in Drumheller, Alberta. Having lived in the Drumheller and Carbon area, many would have known Lloyd as a parts man for many years before he found a passion for driving in his later years. You might have also known Lloyd as a volunteer firefighter having worked with the local fire department. While living in Drumheller, he was involved with many social activities such as playing on a softball team, and being a part of the local pool league. Outside of these activities, he enjoyed working on project vehicles, golfing, playing cards and board games with his friends and family (only if he won), and spending time with his 3 grandchildren. Lloyd leaves to mourn his wife Raylene. Children Darcy, and Cory. His daughter Jennifer with her husband Jason and their 3 children Cadence, Averie, and Bentley. As well as step children Mathew, Bobbi and her partner Justin. Lloyd leaves behind 3 brothers James, Harvey and his wife Marilyn along with 2 children Stephanie and Ashley, David and his wife Lillian and their 3 children Joyce, Charlene and Clayton. Lloyd also leaves a sister, Twylia and her husband Marvin along with their children Rhonda, Timothy, Reed, and Drew. Also left behind are many great nieces and nephews, uncles and aunts, as well as several cousins.
