Condolences to the family of Gregory James Goudy


Gregory James

January 5, 2023

Gregory James Goudy of Michichi, beloved husband of Christine Susan Goudy, passed away suddenly on January 5th, 2023, at the age of 63 years.
Greg grew up in Drumheller and later in life moved to Calgary. He owned his own company TAG Mechanical where he serviced large machinery as a heavy-duty mechanic. Greg had a love for motorcycles and 4 wheelers. Greg and Chris decided to buy some land on the outskirts of the Hamlet of Michichi. This is where they set up camp with a holiday trailer. Camping and fishing was in order for the next few years and their land was visited by many families and friends on long weekends in the summer. In the summer of 2017, a mobile home was moved to the location in anticipation of retiring there in a few years. Greg also had a love for travelling and made quite a few trips to Mexico where he enjoyed some deep-sea fishing. He will forever be in our hearts.
Besides his loving wife, Chris, Greg is survived by his three daughters, Chantelle McElwain (Chad), Samantha McElwain, Amber Meszaros (Christina), grandchildren, Roman, Rylence, Lexis, Madelyn, Cecilia, Hadley and Lucas, sister Tracy Shannon (James), niece Melissa Samuel, nephew Jesse Samuel (Melissa) and great niece Emily.
Greg was predeceased by his parents James Goudy and Darlene Von and daughter, Brittany Meszaros.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 pm at the Michichi Cemetery on Saturday, July 8th, 2023. Please feel free to join Chris after the service for a lunch at her house in Michichi.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to MPN Canadian Research Foundation or the Canadian Lung Association.

Betty/M. Elizabeth

January 31, 1927 - April 19, 2023

BETTY/ M. Elizabeth Gallagher passed away April 19th, 2023 at the Drumheller Health Centre with family by her side.
Betty was born at the Drumheller Hospital January 31, 1927 to Robert and Jane Steel (Howe). She grew up on the farm in the Orkney area and spent her time with friends and family riding, working and attending the local school and then living at the Drumheller High School Dorm and attending High School.
Betty married Edward Gallagher and together they raised seven children.
Betty began to work when her eldest child was about 14 and she loved working with people and taking care of them, which she did at the Drumheller Auxiliary Hospital. Later she moved on to the physiotherapy department. She loved to go out for coffee with friends and continued that tradition to within about 3 weeks of her passing. She was an avid gardener taking great pride in her flowers. Betty was strong, self-confident, and conscientious of others. She often drove around and checked on what each of her children were up to. Betty’s door was always open, enjoying family and friends.
Betty leaves behind 7 children; Elizabeth Jane/BJ Gallagher, Paddy Hunter (Wilf), Reg Gallagher (Debra), Susan Hodgson (Keith), Debby deGraaf (Jack), John Gallagher (Brenda) and Joe Gallagher (Charlene), 19 Grandchildren, 27 Great-Grandchildren and 5 Great-Great-Grandchildren.
Betty also leaves her best friend Ron Stanger who added much to her life with his friendship, rides in the country, morning coffee, dinners out, etc. We will be forever grateful to Ron for the time he spent with Mommy enriching her life the way he did. Best friends are so important.
Betty was predeceased by her husband Edward, infant son Martin, granddaughter Brittany Gallagher, parents Robert and Jane Steel, sister Evelyn Sargent, and brother Robert Steel.
The family would like to express our extreme appreciation to the Doctors, Nurses, and staff at the Drumheller Health Centre for the wonderful care they provided during her final weeks.

Daniel Lewis

September 24, 1944 - April 22, 2023

Danny leaves to mourn his wife, Heather, of 35 years, her parents, Frank and Esther Dyck and his 6 children: Trish (Pat), Kari (Jack), Susan, Dan (Anna), Jen and Jamie, 12 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren. Also surviving are sisters Dianne, Debbie (Larry), and brother David (Marilyn), numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, friends, and neighbours.
Dan was predeceased by his parents, Bill Worman and Laura Worman, and his brother-in-law, Al Karakuc.
Danny enjoyed life to the fullest. Outdoors, in the sun, is where he loved to be. Fishing, hunting with his Labrador companions, playing sports, feeding and watching wildlife, gardening, yard work were some of his favourite hobbies. He passionately “couch coached” his Calgary Flames and Stampeders. Gathering collections to fill his “trunk of treasures” was another passion. Danny was part of the very first Corp of Officers to be hired to work at the Penitentiary, which he was particularly proud of. Danny enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He really loved and cherished his wife, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, his sisters, brother, and their children. To him family was everything.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Make a Wish (Canada) or the B.C. and AB Guide Dogs.
