CONDOLENCES to the family of Isabella Scott Grenier

Best Mother in the World!



Isabella Scott

February 21, 1917 - December 31, 2018

Isabella Scott Grenier (Granny) passed away in palliative care on Monday, December 31st, 2018 at the age of 101 surrounded by her loving family. Isabella is predeceased by her loving husband Henry Philip Grenier (October 9, 1978), parents Andy & Helen Armstrong, siblings Meg, Violet, Ruby, Tom as well as grandchildren Scott Heptonstall and Amanda Long. Isa is lovingly remembered by her children Philip Grenier (Pat), Elaine Heptonstall, Glenn Grenier, Darlene Shannon, grandchildren Jolene, Carrie Anne, Dale, Terry, David, Candida as well as great-grandchildren Haylea, Brayden, Azarie, Madison, Olivia, Daenen, Teagan, Meadow, Tia, Corbin, Charlie, Sam, Rowen, Ava, Brooklyn and great-great granddaughter Spencer. Isabella was born in Scotland, February 21, 1917 and came to Canada at 2 years of age on the Minadoso sailing ship. Isa’s family was her heart and joy. Her life was a living example of a great Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32, “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ”. Isa had a passion for the outdoors looking to the sky, climbing the Drumheller Valley hills, walks with her family, spending time gardening, baking, reading, going to That’s Crafty, yard sales and eating jelly beans.

If tears could build a stairway, we’d walk right
up to heaven and bring you home again.
Thank you for giving us the most wonderful
years and the most beautiful life.

And the story goes on ~
until we meet our Mother again.
We love you and miss you.

A Funeral Mass was held Saturday, January 5, 2019 at Saint Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church, Drumheller at 1:00 p.m. with Father Fernando Genogaling officiating. Interment followed at the Drumheller Cemetery.
The family wishes to thank Acute Care, Continuing Care, Charlotte Chernoff, your care and compassion is
much appreciated. Also, thank you to Sean and the staff at Courtney-Winters Funeral Home. If desired, memorials may be sent to Continuing Care, 351 9 Street NW, Drumheller, Alberta T0J 0Y1.

Brian Alan Zacharuk (Zach) passed away peacefully, with his loving family by his side on Sunday, December 23, 2018 at the age of 72 years. Brian was born in Drumheller, Alberta on April 20, 1946 to Steve & Francis Zacharuk. Brian graduated High School in 1965, then attended carpentry training in Calgary, worked for Poole Construction and Greene Construction, and was also a devoted volunteer at the Drumheller fire department. Brian built his first home in lower Midland in 1967 where he raised his family. In 1972 he began working at the Drumheller Penitentiary.In 1979 Brian started up his own company called Brian Zacharuk Construction Ltd. and in 1983 opened a family business, Mom’s Laundry. On February 28, 1993 Brian bought the acreage for his family where he and Linda made their final home. Pig roasts, Black Label beer, Merle Haggard, activities on the river and fireworks are a few of the things Brian loved, and he always spent his days doing what he loved the most. Anyone who knew him will greatly miss the stories and his gift of knowledge. Even with his Jekyll and Hyde personality Brian was generous, hard working and loved by many. Brian is survived by his wife Linda of 53 years, his dog Clyde, his two daughters, Mary James (Randy) and Marnie Zacharuk (Bob Ball). His grandsons Dustin Zacharuk (Jennifer) and Ryan Zacharuk.
