Do not ask me to remember
Don’t try to make me understand.
Let me rest and know you’re with me
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand

I’m confused beyond your concept
I’m sad and sick and lost
All I know is that I need you
To be with me at all cost

Do not lose your patience with me
Do not scold or curse or cry
I can’t help the way I’m acting
I can’t be different though I try

Just remember that I need you
That the best of me is gone
Please don’t fail to stand beside me
Love me till my life is gone

C. LENORE BIDDELL

July 26, 1923 – May 15, 2020
The family of Constance Lenore Alvina Biddell are sad to announce her passing on Friday, May 15, 2020 at Medicine Hat Regional Hospital at the age of 96.
Lenore leaves to cherish her memory one son, Paul Biddell, six granddaughters, one grandson and numerous great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family.
She experienced times of sadness at the passing of her parents Samuel and Lillie (Ruby) Nesbitt, her husband, FH (Bud) Biddell, brother John (Jack) Nesbitt and her daughter Lynne Norrena who was very special to her and she missed dearly.
Gram had a long, full and happy life as the wife of an RCAF pilot and as a career woman working for many years at Rexall Pharmacy in Ottawa. She was a vibrant woman who loved to travel and kept her eyes open for new experiences. This was demonstrated in her willingness to move from Ottawa to Medicine Hat in her 80Â’s. She packed the things most important to her and flew across the country for a new adventure. Once in Medicine Hat, she comfortably settled into PaulÂ’s home where she stayed, with him by her side, until her passing. He made sure that in her later years she was surrounded by love and family, joined regularly by her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She also had a special feline friend, Harriett, who passed her days warming GramÂ’s lap and often amusing her.
A private celebration of life will take place with the family at a later date.
