1926 ~ YVONNE LIBOIRON ~ 2021 1926 ~ HENRI PAUL LIBOIRON ~ 2021

Henri Paul (Bobby) and Yvonne Liboiron both passed away peacefully at their home at Sunny Side at the age of 94 years. Bobby passed away January 17, 2021 and Yvonne followed the love of her life passing on January 19, 2021. A “story book” love story, they spent 73 years together as man and wife and not much time spent apart before reuniting in heaven. The couple lived most of their married life in Ponteix, SK until they moved to Medicine Hat in 1998 to be closer to family. We were never sure how Henri became to be known as Bobby but that’s how everyone knew him. He was born in the district of Gouveneur by Ponteix, Sask. on June 16, 1926. He was predeceased by his parents; 11 siblings; and numerous brothers and sisters-in-law. Bobby will be remembered for being a school bus driver and then custodian at the school in Ponteix. He loved camping, fishing and “wheeling and dealing”. He was a strong man who had many health issues but always seemed to bounce back stronger then ever. Bobby loved his family and was constantly keeping us on our toes with ideas he would come up with. He always boasted that Anna was his favorite daughter-in-law…guess it was safe as she was the only one. Yvonne was a gentle, petite, loving lady. Born March 12, 1926 in Gravelbourg Sask. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Bobby; her parents; 12 siblings; and numerous brothers and sisters-in-law. Grandma taught herself to sew and could make beautiful outfits and blankets from old clothes or scraps. She loved to bake and cook…we can still taste her apple pies and cream puffs. She stayed at home to raise their family then worked at the Convent and Foyer St Joseph in Ponteix. Yvonne had a heart of gold and loved her family unconditionally. When she didn’t agree with one of Bobby’s ideas she’d always say, “I put my foot down but he put his foot over mine and his is bigger”. Unfortunately, mom developed dementia and it worsened over the years. As her dementia progressed, they had to be separated but they were in the same building and grandpa would go down and see her everyday. In later years, they were placed in the same unit and they would spend time in grandpa’s room together. It was not uncommon to see them sitting together holding hands, a true testament of the love they had for one another. Bobby and Yvonne leave behind to cherish their memory their four children, Roger, Adele (Maurice) Laventure, Irene Wilson, Emile (Anna Marie) Liboiron; eight grandchildren, Nicole (Jeff) Vaagen, Lina (Ben) Weeks, Celine (Rodney) Danko, Carolyn (Brennan) Oliver, Damien Wilson, Anita Wilson, Michael (Nicole) Liboiron, and Joel (Tammy) Liboiron; 15 great- grandchildren; five of Yvonne’s siblings; numerous brothers and sisters-in law; as well as many friends. We would like to thank the staff at Haven and the Sunny Side Nursing home for the years of care and compassion they provided. We are forever grateful. A wise person once told me, “you never say good-bye for good-bye is forever, instead you say see you later”. All our love, we miss you. The Funeral Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, January 30, 2021, at SAAMIS MEMORIAL FUNERAL CHAPEL, #1 Dunmore Road SE, Medicine Hat T1A 1Z5 with Pastor Shane Hein officiating. Interment will take place at SAAMIS PRAIRIE VIEW CEMETERY. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions the service will be by family invitation only.

1938 ~ ROSEMARY SAILER ~ 2021

It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Rosemary Sailer on January 22, 2021. Rosemary was the beloved wife of Eugene (Gene) Sailer; loving mother to Nancy (Jim) Burgess, Wayne (Carrie Berthelette) Rossler, Scott Rossler, Greg Rossler; sister Mary Brettle of Hanna; as well as her dedicated dog Mandy. Rosemary was born July 19, 1938 in Hanna, Alberta and grew up on the family farm in the Lone Butte area. After graduation, she worked in Hanna Alberta as an Administration Assistant until marrying her first husband, Chester Rossler, at which time they relocated to Vancouver, BC. It was here where their daughter, Nancy and sons, Wayne and Scott were born. In 1966, the family moved to Medicine Hat. In 1968, their youngest son, Greg was born completing their family. Mom stayed home to raise her family only returning to work when her youngest was in High School. She worked as a Teachers Aid and then for the ATA in both the Public and Separate school systems until she retired. In July of 1989, she married Gene Sailer and they moved to a small farm outside of Medicine Hat. These were some of their happiest times being back on a farm. In June of 2007 they left the farm to move back to Medicine Hat. Rosemary loved reading and playing Scrabble and Rummoli. She loved to garden taking special pride in her flowerbeds, vegetables and her rose garden. She also enjoyed feeding the birds in her yard year round. Spending time with her family was her most cherished pastime and we all enjoyed our time with her just as much. Rosemary was predeceased by her parents, Tom and Margaret Owens and her brother, Tom Owens Jr. and his common- law wife, Mary Thuroo. As per her wishes the family will hold a private interment service at a later date. The family would like to sincerely thank the staff of the Margery E. Yuill Cancer Centre of Medicine Hat and the AHS Homecare and all the other palliative and support teams that made it possible to keep Mom at home so we could be with her during her final days. We would like to extend a special thank you to Cara, Jamie and Debbie from Home Care as mom took great comfort in your loving care. Condolences may be sent to subject heading Rosemary Sailer.
