Condolences to the family of Irene Albright (nee Mundy)



Irene (nee Mundy)

July 29, 1938 - May 13, 2018

Albright, Irene (nee Mundy) passed away peacefully with family by her side on May 13, 2018 in Drumheller, AB at the age of 79 years old. Mom was born to Thomas and Lizzy Mundy on July 29, 1938 in Bashaw, AB. Mom enjoyed visiting with family and strangers alike. Holding all the little babies gave her such great pleasure; no little kid went unnoticed with Mom around. Playing at the playgrounds with her grandkids or walking with them to the corner convenient for an ice cream would make her day. Mom had a strong faith in God and enjoyed Sundays worshipping. She would always say an extra prayer for anyone who was sick or struggling. Mom took pride in her garden, flowers, feeding a full table and life on the farm. Mom was always available with an ear, a hug, her famous brownies or chicken noodle soup. She left foot prints on the hearts of many and is sure to be missed by anyone that had the opportunity to know her. Mom will be deeply missed by her husband Jack of 57 years as well as her 3 girls: Phyllis (Wade), Janet (Owen), and Karen (Darren). Irene’s grandchildren always put a sparkle in her eyes and she was guaranteed to put a smile on their faces. Mom will be greatly missed by her grandchildren: Justin (Chole), Spencer (Morgan), Chelsea and Christina. Great Grandma to: Beau, Luke, Scarlett and Max. She leaves behind 3 sisters: Betty, Lillian, Grace and one brother, George. She also had several sisters and brothers-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews. As per Mom’s wishes, there will be no memorial. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Kidney Foundation. Condolences may be sent or viewed at Arrangements in care of Hanna Funeral Services Ltd., Hanna, AB, 403-854-5956.

She grew up on the MacIntosh farm at Munson, Alberta and was educated at Munson and Olds, Alberta. Alice married Elam (Ole) Martin in 1950 and moved to the John Chambers farm east of Morrin, in the Sunbeam school district. She enjoyed every aspect of farming and livestock. She loved riding her horse to take lunches and coffee to the field for many years. Alice was also a longtime member of the Sunbeam School Society and she and Ole drove school bus for 40 years in that area. In her later life she enjoyed skiing and golf and loved to work in her yard and took great pride in its appearance. Alice was fortunate to spend the last 7 winters in Mesa, Arizona with her son Terry and a new community of friends which she enjoyed. Alice leaves to mourn, her daughter Diana (Rick) Wolf and son Terry Martin and numerous nieces and nephews in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario.

Our family wishes to extend our gratitude and appreciation for the compassionate care given to Alice by Dr. Dayo, Dr. Mateer, Nurses and Staff of the Drumheller Hospital. We would also like to thank our family and friends for the visits and kind gestures.

Condolences to the family of David William Pentelchuk



David William

January 6, 1959 - May 23, 2018

We Have But A Moment

David was born January 6th 1959. He passed away with his loving family at his side at 4:50 pm on May 23, 2018 at Peter Lougheed Hospital in Calgary, Alberta. He was born in Drumheller and spent his early years on the farm with his family in the Wintering Hills, southeast of Dalum. Some of David’s fondest memories are from his days on the farm and his childhood friends. David was baptized and confirmed at Grace Lutheran Church. His accomplishments include receiving a welding ticket and his journeyman in mechanics. We are proud to say he was a committee member of the Red Seal Interprovincial Standards Association for Motorcycle Mechanics and was a certified Harley Davidson Mechanic. Dave was remembered by his family and friends for his bravery, loyalty, and love of family, friends, life, fun and adventure. The mountains were very special to Dave. We will miss his singing, guitar playing, enthusiasm for the little things, sense of humor, compassion and kindness. He had an entrepreneurial spirit and had his last motorcycle shop in Whitehorse, Yukon. Some of his most treasured memories are the times he spent with his kids: camping, taking them for rides on his motorbike, cooking, sitting around the fire pit out in Dalum, and their visits and phone calls. He took pride in his tomato plants, pepper plants, and cooking. He loved to see the deer from his home. No one could take a small event and turn it into a moment quite like Dave. We shall miss him dearly forever. David is predeceased by many friends and family including his father Nicholai in 1969. He will forever be in the hearts of his family: his mother Elsie, his children, Kevinee, Tasha (Michel), and Nicholas (Kristina); grandchildren Tyree and Draiton; sisters, Karen (Rob) and Christine. He leaves behind many aunts, uncles and cousins. We request that in memory of Dave, lend a hand to someone in need. Celebration of Life is Thursday, May 31, 2:00 p.m. at Grace Lutheran Church, Drumheller. Interment at the Drumheller Cemetery and lunch to follow at Grace Lutheran Church. We would love to see you there.
