Jean Olive Dick (Tucker), beloved wife of Orm, passed away peacefully after a short illness on Friday, October 20, one day before her 93rd birthday. Jean was born in Roblin, MB, on October 21, 1924. She grew up on the family farm alongside her 5 siblings. Jean chose to leave the farm and seek a career in nursing, where she took her training in Dauphin, MB. In 1946 she married Orm, and together they raised 4 children. Throughout their 71 years of married life they resided in Carmen, Brandon, Abbotsford, Blind Bay, BC, and finally made their home in Medicine Hat. They loved to travel and took many vacations to Florida, Texas, and Mexico where they made lifelong friends. In Jeans younger years she was an accomplished seamstress. Caring for and spending time with her family was most important to her. Many hours were spent in the kitchen baking and cooking, and even in her later years no one could hold a candle to the meals she prepared. She was dearly loved and admired by her family. Left to cherish her memory are her husband, Orm; her children Randy (Leslie), Jan Morgan, and Brad (Judy); grandchildren Shannon (Sean Buckles), Krista (John Nachuk), Jacquie, Jeff Morgan (Ashley), Tara Morgan, Cody, and Brett; and 5 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her son Brent in 1988. As per Jeans wishes, no formal service will be held. A private family celebration of her life will take place at a later date.

It is with heavy hearts the family of Howard Ernest Becker announces his passing on October 16, 2017. Howard was predeceased by his wife, Verna Marjorie (Kurpjuweit) Becker; parents, Philip and Emma (Jeske) Becker; infant sister, Elsie; older brother, Gilbert Becker and sister-in-law, Anne (Hermann) Becker. He leaves to grieve his passing his children, Stanley Wayne Becker (Marie) of Irvine, Sheila Mae Thurber; his grandchildren, Lacey Nicole Doyle (Peter) and Shay Philip; great grandchildren, Isis Eve Doyle and Corbin James Doyle, as well as dear friend, Melissa Jacober (and fur baby Belle) all of Medicine Hat. Dad was born May 18, 1932 in Medicine Hat. He was raised on the family farm and received his education in the Schuler area. Dad and mom were married October 19, 1956 and purchased our family farm south of Medicine Hat just off the Black and White Trail. It was there that they managed the farm and ranch for the next 30 plus years, raising 2 adopted children, Stan (1962) and Sheila (1964). Dad also took great pride in being an independent school bus driver for 23 years, sharing the driving with mom when responsibilities during calving, seeding or harvest demanded his time. Dad was a soft-spoken Christian man whose entire life was dedicated to the church and his family. His faith in God and unconditional love for his family were undeniable. As a proud farmer/rancher, with endless work to be done, church service and prayers were never missed, neighbours were always offered help, volunteering was a priority and friends were always acknowledged. After moving into Medicine Hat, while continuing to farm, mom and dad enjoyed many extended vacations, which included driving the motorhome to Arizona, cruising to Mexico and simplyadventuring countless destinations across Canada and the US. Dad simply loved the open road and if there was map he would drive. His flawless driving record and skills were undisputed making every passenger in his company feel safe. When he retired from his farm duties and they moved into Chinook Village, Dad continued to volunteer in many capacities and looked forward to his daily pool matches with friends. Over the past four years, dad’s health deteriorated, and he could no longer be in his own home. Without complaint, dad moved into continuing care where he remained until the time of his passing. Family and friends who wish to pay their respects may do so at the PATTISON FUNERAL HOME on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The funeral service will be held in the PATTISON CHAPEL on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. with Rev.

Vera Henderson passed away at the age of 90 glorious years on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital. She will be remembered with love, by her son, Dr. Scott Henderson (Nadine Yeo), her daughter, Kim Bernbaum (Harvey) and granddaughters, Talia Bernbaum (Robert Birrell) and Piper Bernbaum, who were totally cherished by their “Granny”. She will be deeply missed by her elder sister, Joyce Deiner of Brandon, Manitoba and also leaves behind a legion of terrific nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews as well as many loyal friends and neighbours. She was particularly attached to the large and robust Henderson side of her family who always supported and enjoyed the company of Vera and Larry throughout their married life. Vera was predeceased by her husband of 66 years, Dr. Larry Henderson, daughter in law, Patrician Henderson and grandson, Mathew Henderson, sister, Florence Maynes (Dr. Earl Maynes), brother, Don Featherstone (Lee), and brother-in-law, Lloyd Deiner. Vera was born in Lemberg, Saskatchewan, her father a car dealer, having emigrated from England. Her career as an educator began in a one room school house in the Qu’appelle Valley of Saskatchewan teaching grades 1 to 9, culminating in her dream job as an elementary school teacher/librarian for 12 years at Vincent Massey School in Medicine Hat, retiring in 1986 when she became a member of the Medicine Hat and District Retired Teachers Association. She loved her career and was a born educator with a well deserved reputation for an acute memory of facts, names, dates, relationships and sports. She received the coveted ‘Honoured Educator Award’ in 1992 from the Medicine Hat School district. She was an unstoppable Westminster United Church supporter where after years of working on committees and bake sales, she turned her attention to her new love – crocheting prayer shawls, despite having lost her sight. It was an integral part of her life to support her husband Larry in the numerous committees and volunteer organizations of which he was a forceful yet subtle participant. They were a team in and out of the house and everyone knew that if they engaged one, they would automatically get both their tireless efforts. Vera will be missed by all. A celebration of Vera’s life will be held in Westminster United Church (101 6th Street SE) on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Jan Stevenson officiating.
