Condolences to the family of Robert Mitchell Herzog


Robert Mitchell

October 28, 1961 - November 19, 2023

Mitch, a dedicated farmer and member of the Delia community, was surrounded by his family when he passed away peacefully in Airdrie at the age of 62 on November 19, 2023.
Mitch was born to Bob and Gloria Herzog. Mitch grew up on the family farm just north of Delia with his three sisters, Janet, Susan, and Jennifer. A skilled amateur motocross racer growing up, Mitch had a passion for anything with an engine and wheels. From dirt bikes to snowmobiles, and muscle cars, Mitch always sought thrill and excitement.
Spending his life working on the family farm under his dad’s guidance, Mitch eventually took over the operation in the late 90’s to continue the Herzog family legacy. Between tending to cattle and crops, Mitch loved spending time with his family and friends. Mitch was a kind and loving father and husband who took pride in being an excellent friend and neighbour. Whether helping a fellow farmer move their cattle to a new pasture or hopping behind the wheel of a combine to get their crop off before the first snow, Mitch could always be counted on in a time of need and wasn’t one to keep score.
After gracefully transitioning into semi-retirement, Mitch settled with his loving wife Karen into their cottage at Ghost Lake in 2017. A cheerful touch to this peaceful life was their loyal furry friend, Abby, whose playful presence and need for adventure added joy to Mitch’s daily life.
Mitch will be deeply missed by his loving wife Karen; his children Grant (Maria), Jeffrey (Jordan), Kaylin (Braeden), and Ashlyn (Quinten), his stepchildren Melissa (Andrew), Rob (Mackenzie), his grandchildren Palmer, Reese, Millie and step-grandson Henry, his sisters Janet, Susan (Ralph), and Jennifer (Tom). Also remembering Mitch are numerous extended family members and a lifetime of friends. We will miss Mitch’s contagious laugh, his witty jokes, his love of life, putting everyone first and total selflessness.
Mitch was predeceased by his parents Robert (Bob) and Gloria Herzog, nephew Jordan Larkam, and numerous other family members.
The family wishes to thank the wonderful and dedicated staff at Bethany Airdrie for their compassionate and respectful care of Mitch, companions from Home Instead, A Friend Indeed, Dr. Cook and his colleagues. Mitch had a rare condition called P.C.A. (Posterior Cortical Atrophy) Alzheimers which he battled with courage and dignity.
A Celebration of Life service for Mitch will be held Saturday, December 2, 2023 at 1:00 P.M. at the Delia Community Hall. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to D.O.R.V.A. (Drumheller Off-Road Vehicle Association) a not-for-profit organization, Airdrie Bethany (Recreation Aspen Unit) or the charity of one’s choice.
Courtney-Winter's Funeral Home in care of arrangements. 403-823-2666.

Condolences to the family of Doris Doreen Buhler


Doris Doreen

December 29, 1945 - November 9, 2023

Doris passed away peacefully, with her children and some grandchildren by her side at the Calgary Foothills Hospital at the age of 77.
Doris was raised on the family farm near Carbon, Ab where she went to school, and later met her Husband, Elmer Buhler. They were married on August 1, 1964 and had 5 children. Doris was busy raising their 5 children along with doing chores on the farm even while Elmer was trucking. Somehow, Doris had made time to start a Ziegler family history book and in later years, her love for family history would come up again, which inspired her to start a Buhler history book.
In 1979, Elmer & Doris and their children, moved to an acreage in Peace River. A few years later, heartache struck the family with the death of their son, Clinton. Elmer
eventually started his own trucking company, Buhler Transport, while Doris dispatched for him. As the years went on, they travelled around Canada and the US in the truck and had many stories from their travels.
Doris loved to crochet and she even taught her grandchildren as they grew older. She has made many blankets for her children, grandchildren and great-granchildren. When her husband passed 22 years ago this month, her heart was broken. Doris poured her heart into writing and publishing 4 books (Pen name: Risel Buhler) and had a love for country style art that was seen around her home.
Doris is now at home with the Lord and beside Elmer once again rejoicing.
Doris is survived by her children: Vic (Nancy) Buhler, Carolyn (Richard) Terpstra, Darrick (Raelene) Buhler, Melanie Hewitt. Grandchildren: Kohl Lloyd, Jenna Armstrong, Alexandria (Zach) Armstrong, Chanell (Cassidy) Christoffersen, Kyle (Alexandra) Hewitt, Victor
(Carley) Buhler, Clinton Buhler, Ryan Hewitt, Jadon Hewitt, Casey Buhler, Sage Buhler. Great-Grandchildren: Ronan Hewitt, Mazie Armstrong-Wilkins, Emery & Elijah
Christoffersen, Kruz, Avery and Kase Lloyd.
Doris is predeceased by her husband: Elmer Buhler, Son: Clinton Buhler.
Funeral Service will be held on Friday, November 17 at 2 pm at the Zion Baptist Church near Drumheller, AB on Hwy 9. Kneehill Funeral Services Ltd in Three Hills, AB

In Doris’s honour, memorial tributes may be made to: Gideons International or Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada in lieu of flowers.
