WILLIAM "BILL" HORACE GILCHRIST

1922 – 2017


William “Bill” Horace Gilchrist of Medicine Hat, passed away peacefully in Palliative Care at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017 at the age of 95. He was the beloved husband of the late Carrie Gilchrist. Bill was born on May 21st, 1922 in Coldwater, Ontario to Roland and Ellen Gilchrist. He grew up on the Shepherd farm where his father was employed, with his one brother and two sisters. At the age of 20, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force, and he earned his 3rd year, Motor Vehicle Repair in 1946. Bill’s passion for airplanes took him to many places including Sardinia, Gander, Newfoundland and Bournemouth, England. He remained a career military man as a Civil Servant for the Armed Forces stationed in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba. Bill met and later married his “lovely wife” on September 15th, 1979, and together they resided in Portage until his retirement in 1987. Upon his retirement, they moved to Medicine Hat in 1988 to be closer to family. Bill enjoyed being an active member of the Medicine Hat Church of God (Pentecostal), camping, tinkering with small engines, learning to use a computer to research subjects of interest, walking his dog and watching his grandchildren, and later, his great- granddaughters grow up.
Bill was a quiet, meticulous, steadfast man who could figure out any problem given enough time. Once he set his mind to something he didn't quit until he fully understood all of the working parts. Bill was also very generous, and would extend a leg up to anyone in need.
Bill will be lovingly remembered by his step-children, Rhonda (Darryl) Shoemaker and T. Lindsey (Sharon) Reid; his grandchildren, Marissa (Derrick) Jordan, Gordon (special friend Jenn) Shoemaker, Claudene (Dan) Watt, and Trevor (Laura) Baker; and great-granddaughters, Marlee and Lara Jordan and Khloe Baker; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Bill was predeceased by his wife, Carrie (2016); step son, Ron Reid (2009); granddaughter, Cynthia Baker (1990); as well as his parents, Roland and Ellen; and siblings, Fred, Aida and Grace.
The Family wishes to extend special thanks to the wonderful staff on the Palliative Care Unit and all of the nursing staff who looked after Bill over the past few years.

ZIEGENHAGEL

October 12, 1937 –
September 14, 2017
Adeline Ziegenhagel, beloved wife of Arthur Ziegenhagel, passed away peacefully on September 14, 2017, at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital. She is survived by her husband Art, and her sister, Louise (Ewald) Reisdorf. She is also cherished and missed by her three children; Larry (Bernie) Ziegenhagel and their children, Nathan and Kirsten (Shaun) Lal; Patty (Ryan) Renke and their children, Dayton (Whitney), Tanner (Jenny), and Danica; and Mark Ziegenhagel. Adeline married Art in 1957 and together they farmed in the Robinson District north of Elkwater. She loved the farm and her favourite activity there was gardening. This carried over to their house in town when they moved into Medicine Hat. She was a humble and kind person and her kids and grandkids were number one. No one was able to leave her house without some kind of care package. Grammy was a classic German cook and made the best homemade dishes and baking, which she was generous in sharing with her family. Adeline had a strong sense of faith that she carried with her, and you could always count on her for words of wisdom in times of need. We look forward to seeing her again one day. The funeral service will be held in the PATTISON CHAPEL on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Mark Bolender officiating. Interment will follow in the Hillside Cemetery. To e-mail an expression of sympathy, please direct it to: pattfh@telusplanet.net subject heading: Adeline Ziegenhagel, or you may visit http://www.pattisonfuneralhome.com and leave a message of condolence.
Funeral Arrangements are by the PATTISON FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORIUM 540 South Railway St. SE, Medicine Hat T1A 4C2
