Condolences to the family of Ann Margaret Webster


Ann Margaret

June 4, 1935 - August 5, 2023

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Ann Margaret Webster on Saturday, August 5th surrounded by her family. Ann was predeceased by her parents Andrew and Margaret Toth, brother Bela (Kay) Toth, and granddaughter Erin Webster. Born on June 4th, 1935 in Lethbridge, Alberta, Ann grew up in Nacmine and the Drumheller Valley. It was there she attended school and would eventually meet her husband William (Flip), who worked in the same coal mine as her father. The two were married in September 1955 at St. Anthony’s parish in Drumheller and moved to Saskatoon shortly after where they lived and raised their two children, Bill and Susan.
Ann devoted herself to her family, her quilting (donating many to the SPCA) and was an active member of St. Francis Xavier parish. Ann and William shared many happy times with friends and family visiting the Drumheller Valley as well as Turtle Lake, Saskatchewan where they built a cabin in the 1970’s. Of special note is the life-long friendship Ann and William shared with Mike and Judy Behuniak (predeceased), having grown up together in the Drumheller Valley.
Ann also shared a special relationship with many of her grandchildren who lived down the street. This meant that grandma was never far off and these visits brought immense joy to Ann who served countless cups of tea and cookies providing that second home away from home.
Ann’s great love for her family will be remembered by her husband William, children Bill (Della) and Susan, and grandchildren Marie, Andrew, Thomas, Erin (predeceased) Matthew, Evan, and Maegan.
Family and friends and those who knew Ann are invited for Prayers taking place on Wednesday, August 10th, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. and the Funeral Mass on August 11th, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. both at St. Francis Xavier Parish in Saskatoon.
Condolences may be left for the family with Mourning Glory Funeral Services. (

Condolences to the family of George Hatfield



June 5, 1935 - July 21, 2023

George Hatfield of Drumheller, AB, beloved husband of the late Gail Hatfield, passed away on July 21, 2023 at the age of 88.
George was born June 5, 1935 at Calgary, AB to Wilmer and Ida Anne Hatfield. He was an athletic kid, enjoying basketball and hockey in his younger years. He and his close friends that he grew up with all attended university in the U.S. and all returned to Calgary to start careers and families. The group has remained life-long friends.
Dad met and married the love of his life, Gail Cundal, in 1964. Daughter Elin arrived in 1965 and son Sean in 1967.
George initially started in life insurance before settling into the car business at GM in 1963 which brought the family to Drumheller in 1974 where George owned/operated Western GM until 1977. He then learned the farming business and doing what he does best, sold farm machinery and equipment for many years. He was a businessman, but primarily a family man. He loved all aspects of family life and always said he enjoyed all the different stages of being a father and husband.
George and Gail loved to entertain and socialize with friends, were involved in the community – Kinsmen, K-40’s, combine crashes, and various community events. They both enjoyed playing crib on the porch and mom would occasionally let dad win now and then. Both mom and dad were number one fans at Shayne’s hockey games and Brandin’s sports and academic events. After mom passed, dad’s highlight of the day was a call to Sydney to chat about anything and everything.
Sadly, he said goodbye to Gail in March 2013. After that, he focused on a quieter life, enjoying his family and grandkids, residing on a nice, quiet street and neighbourhood in Nacmine.
George is predeceased by his loving wife Gail, father Wilmer, mother Ida, and sister Eleanor. He is survived by daughter Elin (Randy) and their children Brandin (Mark) and Shayne (Kendall) and son Sean (Andrea) and their daughter Sydney.
George will be remembered for his incredible sense of humour, his uncanny ability to share yet another story at any given moment, and his complete love of family. Dad will be dearly missed by all his family and friends.
Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, August 11, 2023 at 1:00 p.m. at the Nacmine Community Hall.
