April 16, 1925 - February 3, 2018
With much sadness we announce the passing of our Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother Eliza (Lolo) Slater on the evening of February 3rd, 2018. Lolo was born April 16, 1925 in Tarbrax, Scotland, the middle daughter of five girls and one brother. Lolo immigrated to Canada with her parents John (Jock) and Elizabeth Pennycook at the age of three. They settled in the Drumheller Valley where she grew up and eventually met and married Claude (Butch) Slater, raising a family of three. Lolo is survived by her children Claudeen (Patrick) Swain, Stacy Slater, Todd Slater (Liz), grandsons Garrett Swain, Ried (Amanda) Swain, great grandchildren, Paige, Claire, and Edwin, sisters, Essie Lepard, Jean Warkentin and Wilma Payne, sister-in-law Lillian Pennycook, plus numerous nieces and nephews. Lolo was predeceased by her husband Butch, her parents Jock and Elizabeth, sister Catherine Yemen, brother Stewart Pennycook. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Her family would like to thank the staff at the Drumheller Health Centre (Continuing Care) and Dr. Liknes for their compassion and care.
Mother, you will be missed, Peace Be With You.
