Condolences to the family of Patricia Lynne Landon


Patricia Lynne

June 3, 2022

Patricia Lynne Landon of Drumheller, Alberta passed away at the Red Deer Regional Hospital on June 3, 2022 at the age of 64 years. Lynne
loved growing up on a small farm just outside of Torrington, Alberta with her parents, two brothers, and her canine companion named Mickie (she absolutely loved that dog). She enjoyed riding horses and taking care of the livestock on the farm, though it was a lot of hard work. Her brother Allen was a bullrider and her brother Wayne was a well-known artist. Lynne was extremely proud of them both and often looked up to them. Eventually Lynne moved to Mirror, Alberta, where she found love, got married, had two children, Natasha and Darcy, and a stepson, Dana. A few years later, Lynne and her family settled in Munson, Alberta. Mom always let us know how proud of us she was. We were truly lucky to have her as our mother. She was someone you could talk with for hours and she absolutely loved sharing old memories over a cold glass of rye and Pepsi. Boy, did she love her Pepsi. We love you so much, Mom. We are sure gonna miss your spunk, your smile, your hugs, that laugh, and most importantly we’re really gonna miss you giving us a hard time when we needed it the most. But we’re happy you are finally reunited with your parents and brothers; we know you missed them dearly. Us kids and grandkids will continue to make you proud. Watch over us. Love you always and forever. Lynne is lovingly remembered by son Darcy Landon Jr. and Dana Landon (stepson); daughter Natasha Deleeuw; and five grandchildren. She was predeceased by parents Gladys and Albert Schneider; brothers Allen and Wayne Schneider; stepdaughter Michelle Landon and grandson Dylan Landon. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be directed to the Alzheimer Society of Calgary, 800-7015 MacLeod Trail SW, Calgary, AB, T2H 2K6. Condolences for Lynne’s family may be emailed to

Condolences to the family of Richard Dean Blanchett


Richard Dean

October 9, 1960 - June 1, 2022

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Rick Blanchett, beloved son, brother, husband, grandfather, and friend, on June 1, 2022. Rick was born in Drumheller, Alberta on October 9, 1960, the youngest child of parents Muriel Jean Naegeli and Douglas Vernon Blanchett.
Rick’s roots ran deep in the Drumheller Valley, and his childhood was shaped by time spent with his family and friends exploring the Red Deer River, the Midland hills, and the family farm in Morrin. An avid outdoorsman, Rick was happiest when he was in nature, whether hunting, fishing, or camping in the wilderness.
Rick began his lifelong career working in the oil patch shortly after high school, and spent many years working in Northern British Columbia, before moving his career back to Drumheller. Once resettled in Drumheller, Rick met the love of his life, wife Rhonda Milton, and through this marriage gained a daughter, son, and five beautiful grandchildren. Rick loved Rhonda deeply and treasured each day they shared together until her passing in 2015.
Rick is predeceased by his wife Rhonda, father Douglas, step-father Bernard (Ben), sister Sherry, and niece Athena. Rick will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by his mother Jean, and brothers, Curtis (Dianne), Gregg (Neli), and Kevin (Shelley), as well as his stepdaughter Jody, stepson David (Andrea), grandchildren Kali (Bobbie), Maci (Justin), Sami (Chris), Joshua, and Dylan (Monica), and nieces and nephews, Jennifer (Jono), Michelle (Barry), Michel, Christopher (Shannon), Erin (Tyler), Matthew (Melanie), Mitchell, Mary-Jean (Donavan), Katie (Ryan), Kacey (Joseph), and numerous great-nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life will be held on June 11, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Newcastle Hall. Family and friends are welcome. Donations can be made in memory of Rick to Diabetes Canada or the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Condolences to the family of Tracy Warren Augart


Tracy Warren

My Brother

I am heart broken to have to inform all of the passing of my brother, Tracy Warren Augart.
Tracy was born July 9, 1966 in Calgary. He was the youngest of 3 brothers born to Elmar and Marlene.
When our parents separated, we ended up making our way to the Drumheller Valley where we resided in Wayne.
We did, over the years, move around from time to time; Munson, Smokey Lake, Olds; but we, for some reason, were always drawn back to the Valley. I suppose it was because of our friends and the community love that kept drawing us back and what peaked our interest in wanting to hang out with all of you!
Tracy was in possession of several different skills. He had no formal training, he just seemed to be a natural at a few different things such as mechanical (everyone knows he could fix damn near anything), love for his pets and his family and friends, the ability to always make one smile, chuckle, laugh and always somehow was able to pick himself up and put a positive spin on his life,
even when he was dealt with a crappy hand at quite a few different points in his life! (I truly have to admire him for that ability).
He was very proud of all his kids; Jeremy, Jordan, Ben, Dylan; and he should be. Tracy always made the effort to stay in touch with them and with the rest of us as well.
I just somehow know he’s going to press on and make the best of this situation in whatever way necessary because that’s what he’s trained himself to do.
I hope the rest of us can learn from you and do the same. We are all going to have a big hole in our hearts forever!
Love you Brother!
Already missing you,
Mom, Mikey, Kevin and All
A Celebration of Tracy’s life will be announced at a later date.
