Condolences to the family of Arnold Edward Brown


Arnold Edward

October 4, 1956 - July 8, 2024

Arnold Edward Brown of Drumheller passed away peacefully at Drumheller Hospital on July 8 at 8:30 p.m. He was 67 years old.
He was born in Rosetown, Saskatchewan on October 4, 1956 to proud parents James E. Brown and Patricia A. Brown.
Arnold spent his childhood on the family farm in Valley Centre, Saskatchewan and as an adult he worked for Starland as a grader operator for over 20 years. It was an occupation he loved and was extremely proud of.
He also had a great love of rock and roll, garage sales and tinkering on vehicles whenever he could.
He was fun and laid back and enjoyed making people laugh--always the life of the party.
Arnold will be lovingly remembered by his children Amber “Willow” Rossiter and Jennifer Brown as well as his grandchildren Benjamin, Seth and Chloe Rossiter, his brother Bruce Brown and his sisters Bonny Brown, Twyla Eccleston and Sheila Bullen.
He also had many nieces and nephews who will miss their goofy Uncle Arnie.
Arnold was predeceased by his parents and his wife Sandra Brown.
A celebration of life is being planned for September 14 in Drumheller at a location yet to be chosen.

Condolences to the family of Winnifred (Winnie) Fay Peake


Winnifred Fay

October 12, 1943 - July 7, 2024
(Age 80)

It is with the greatest sadness and everlasting love that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mom, mother-in-law, grandma, great-grandma, daughter, sister, and aunt, Winnie Peake.
Winnie was born Winnifred Fay on October 12, 1943, in Bassano, AB to Jack and Jessie Kirkpatrick. She was the 4th of 5 children, growing up with her 3 brothers and 1 sister.
In June of 1962, she married Hugh Peake of Dorothy, AB, and their 62-year love story began. Winnie took great pride in her family and her home and asked for very little in return. She was very much respected by her husband, children, and grandchildren, as well as all those who were blessed to have known her.
Winnie is survived by her husband Hugh, and their 4 children; daughter Videll Arsenault, her children Chase (Chelsea), Mason, and Logan, as well as her stepchildren, Reid, Danae (Sarah), Kelsey, and their children, Kinley, Emmy, and Elliot; daughter Jackie Fraser (Geoff), their sons, Ryan (Becca), their children Cy and Wren, and Brendan (Erin); daughter Connie Williams (Clay); and son Ross (Karen), their children Morgan, and Laura. She is also survived by her sister, Sis Munro, and brothers Andy, and Dave (Judy), sister-in-law, Maxine Peake, brothers-in-law Ed Peake (Diane), and Jim Peake (Betty), as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
She was predeceased by her parents, Jack and Jessie, and her brother, Doug, just 26 days before her own passing. She was also predeceased by her father-in-law and mother-in-law Hugh and Claudia Peake, sister-in-law Shirley Kirkpatrick, and brothers-in-law Nick Munro and Russ Peake.
It is also necessary to extend our heartfelt thanks to the many doctors, nurses, and support staff, that helped make Winnie’s final days as comfortable as possible. An extra special thank-you to Dr. Olfert for his decades of care. He has continually gone above and beyond for our family, and we cherish him as a medical professional, a kind, supportive friend, and an overall compassionate human being.
A celebration of our wonderful Winnie will be held at 2:00 on July 19 at the Hussar Community Hall. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation to STARS, the Hussar Cemetery Fund, or the Drumheller Area Health Foundation.
