CARL WARNER

1947 ~ 2017
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Carl Warner announce his passing in Medicine Hat on Friday, May 26, 2017, at the age of 69 years. Carl was born on June 11, 1947, in Sherbrooke, Quebec. At a young age, he travelled out West where he met the love of his life, Maureen, becoming a part of her family. Carl was a beloved son to Maurice (Red) and Segrid Dalzell. We are so grateful that he is now in the comfort of their arms. Carl and Maureen were married on November 30, 1974 in Kimberly, BC. Shortly thereafter, they welcomed two beautiful daughters into this world, Sonja and Kreste. The family was complete and there was no limit to Carl’s endless love and protection for his wife and girls. Carl was honoured to have two devoted sons-in-law, Corey and Tom. He loved to tease them and take on reno projects with them. As the family evolved, they were blessed with three wonderful grandchildren; Jaca, William and Jackson who were the apple of their grandpa’s eye. Countless memories with grandpa travelling, camping and just hanging out in the backyard together will last eternally. For 45 years, Carl dedicated his career to Local 496 Union of Pipefitters and Plumbers. He was very well known and respected among his peers. Carl was an honest man who always stood behind his word. He was sentimental and a great story teller with a very tender heart. Known to those close to him as a legend on his guitar, Carl was always the entertainer at gatherings. He was deeply passionate about his music and it became an everlasting part of so many memories. Being the solid rock of the family, Carl was know for his guiding hand during hard times. He will be forever missed and treasured by all those who loved him, including his special dog, Mickey. His legacy will live on in the hearts of his daughters and grandchildren. Everyone who longs for Carl is asked to celebrate his life in their own way. Listen to a song that brings back a memory or take a long walk and look up past the clouds. When you hear the melody of a bird in the distance or feel the warm breeze on your shoulder… think of him. Just as the family will, please hold Carl forever close, in your thoughts and your spirit.

DIETRICH

Steve Adam Dietrich, 92, died peacefully on Sunday, May 28, 2017 at Sunnyside Care Centre in Medicine Hat. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 71 years, Anna (Kuntz) Dietrich; his daughter, Alice Dietrich; his daughter-in-law Delores (Wist) Dietrich; grandchildren Kelly Dietrich, Steven (Cindy) Williams, Karla (Chad) Dietrich, Melissa (Peter) Heinisch, Kendra Dietrich, Christina (John) Williams, and Kerry Dietrich; five great-grandchildren, and many close friends and extended family. He was predeceased by his son Frank, his daughter Mary (Williams) and his son-in-law Oliver Williams; his siblings Barbara (Schell), Katherine (Hubert), Mike, Basil, and Eleanor (Hubert). Born of German settlers, Adam and Magdalena (Schanz) Dietrich, he was raised on the homestead south of Mendham, Saskatchewan. His early years were spent working on the family farm, doing community service, and playing his accordion. He met his wife, Anna – a local school teacher at the Keynote school – at a dance, and soon asked her to marry him. He farmed the family land with his father and brothers until he married in 1946. At that time, he and Anna moved into the family home on the farm, and Steve's parents moved into town in Leader. He continued to farm with his father and then with his brothers until 1961, when he went off on his own. Steve bought land close to Prelate, and farmed that for several years in his "free time" from the family business until he sold that to buy more land closer to Mendham. Steve and Anna moved from the farm into Mendham in approximately 1952 so the children could be closer to school. They moved into town the way only resourceful farmers do – they dismantled the family farmstead and rebuilt the house in town, re-using even the shingles on the roof. At that time, they served as the town’s dairy. Steve and Anna would milk the cows, and their children Mary and Alice would deliver the milk to the locals. This continued until about 1964, when pasteurization was required. A very proud family man, he ensured all of his children had the best educations, with Frank going to school in Battleford, Saskatchewan before taking over the family farm; Mary and Alice attending post-secondary school in Calgary, and ensuring all of his children and grandchildren knew they could do anything or be anything. Although he only had a grade 8 education, he was passionate about learning, stating several times that he would have loved to have attended university. He loved to travel, meet new people, and learn new things. Steve was always making something out of wood. Self-taught, he built church pews, kitchens, and numerous desks, cabinets, tables, chairs, etc. He would see something, look at it, and then say, "I think I can do that." and he would! When he wasn’t busy with his many other activities, he loved to golf, curl, bowl, and watch baseball or the local hockey team. A devout Catholic and volunteer, he was a 4th degree Knight with the Knights of Columbus. He served his communities of both Mendham and Medicine Hat with countless hours of community service. He also served on the board of directors for the Mendham Credit Union for many years. Those who wish to pay their respects may do so at the PATTISON FUNERAL HOME on Friday, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. or at the church on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 10:25 a.m. Family and friends will gather for prayers in the PATTISON CHAPEL on Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. The funeral mass will be celebrated in Holy Family Parish (1451 Strachan Road SE) on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. with Fr.
