July 23rd, 1923 ~ July 6th, 2019
Ruth went to sleep just 17 days short of turning 96 years of age. She was born on the homestead in Ridgewood, Alberta to C.W. (Billy) and Margorie Long. Ruth was the oldest of six children. She married Bruce Lee on September 18, 1944 and made Penhold, Alberta her home for many years. After Bruce’s passing in 1977, Ruth made Red Deer, Edmonton and then Medicine Hat her place of residence. Her spunk and true desire was to travel to distant lands or to house sit for friends so that they too could travel. She was baptized March 9, 1963 as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and made it her goal to share her faith in Jehovah God with any that would listen. However her declining health took away her ability and energy to help others. Ruth will be lovingly remembered by her four children: Les and Anne Holm, Medicine Hat; Richard and Debra Lee, Lockeport, Nova Scotia; Alan and Lorraine Lee, Red Deer; and Chris and Dixie Lee, Medicine Hat. Also remembering her are 14 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren, two surviving sisters, Florence (Bonnie) Million and Marjorie (Marwin) McLeod of Edmonton and one brother, Willard of Iona Station, Ontario. Our appreciation and thanks go to Park Place Meadow Ridge and Valleyview Age Care centers who took such great care of her in her time of need. Honouring Ruth's wishes, no formal funeral services will be held. Condolences may be sent through or to subject heading Ruth Lee. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and aunt, Teresa Gail ‘Terri’ Watters (nee Larkins). Terri passed away after a courageous battle with cancer at St. Joseph’s Home – Carmel Hospice in Medicine Hat on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, at the age of 60 years. She is survived by her loving husband, Reg; children, Kyle (Cassy), Kevin (Salena Fieldberg); granddaughters, Kyptin and Kinzley as well as her brother, Jeff (Lisa) Larkins and their sons, Connor, Liam and Ethan. Terri was predeceased by her parents, Don and Jackie Larkins. Terri was born in Vulcan, Alberta and grew up in Calgary, graduating from Dr. E.P. Scarlett High School. She met Reg while working at Allwest Supermarket in 1973 and they married in 1979. She became a bookkeeper for a number of small businesses until they moved to Medicine Hat in 1994 to operate and manage one (then two) Petro Canada gas stations. Terri loved weekend visits to Calgary to play cards with Case and Karla and trips to Mexico (or any place with a beach) with special friends, Trish and Blaine. She always had a book to read (she loved her novels), putzing in the garden, taking her granddaughters shopping and making sure her boys ‘towed the line’. Terri will be remembered for her quick wit, unselfishness and unconditional love for her family and friends. She cherished every moment with her children and grandchildren. The family would like to especially thank Tanya at the Cancer Clinic; Rhonda with Palliative Care as well as the St. Joseph’s staff for their special professional care and consideration given to Terri during her time of need. In following with Terri’s request, no formal service will be held and family will privately remember her life.
