CAROLE HURKENS (NEE WEIKEL)

February 29, 1940 – December 28, 2020
Carole Hurkens of Lethbridge, beloved wife of Henry Hurkens, passed away after a lengthy illness on December, 28, 2020 at the age of 80 years.
Besides her loving husband, Carole was survived by her daughter Sheila (Sandy) Cook of Picture Butte, son Garry (Colleen) Hurkens of Medicine Hat, and daughter Sandra (Rob) Price of Lethbridge. She was also survived by seven grandchildren: Nicole (Justin) Gatner, Karen (Brent Edwards) Cook, Melissa (Rick) Holmes, Jessica Cook, Kara (Jared) Brake, James (Shaelene Ascione) Price, and Daniel Price and fourteen great grandchildren, as well as her sister Patricia (Norman) Spencer, brother Douglas Weikel, and sister Lynne Aitken. She was predeceased by her daughter Susan Hurkens.
Carole’s deepest love was her family. Not only was she a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, but she played an active role in the lives of those she loved. She provided childcare for each of her grandchildren, attended countless in-school and after-school activities, cared for them when they were sick, and spent hours mending clothes, replacing buttons and sewing costumes and pajama pants. Carole was also a mother and grandmother to all that met her, from her own family and their spouses to her friends and their families to the dozens of new friends that all these people brought into her life. Once you entered her home, you were family. Carole will be lovingly missed by all who knew her.
The family would like to thank the staff of the Linden View Lodge in Taber for providing such wonderful care to Carole in her final months.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family would request that you support the Susan Hurkens School Memorial Award as originally set up by the Hurkens family. Email money transfers can be sent to Sheila Cook at Cooksa@shaw.ca for credit to the Award. Cheques may also be sent to or dropped off at: Scotiabank, 420 Highway Ave (PO Box 190) Picture Butte, AB T0K 1V0. Cheques should be payable to Sheila Cook and the memo line should say in memory of Carole Hurkens.

After he accepted a position with IXL Brick, the couple settled in Medicine Hat. Reg enjoyed a fulfilling 38 year career with IXL. Still with IXL, Reg and Mary bought a farm near Medicine Hat which they enjoyed well into retirement. During those years, they also began to travel, having adventures beyond our dreams. Sadly, Mary became ill and the couple were forced to sell the farm and return to the city in 1992. Reg continued to travel with family and friends for years. He was a role model and patriarch for the entire family, guiding with integrity and honesty. Papa lived a long and fulfilled life having just celebrated his 101st birthday!
