VALERIE ANN BROWER

1950 ~ VALERIE ANN BROWER ~ 2023
It is with sadness in our hearts we announce the passing of beloved aunt, friend, and teacher, Valerie Ann Brower, in Medicine Hat on December 16th, 2023 at the age of 73 years. Valerie was the eldest child born to Lynn and Florence (Reierstad) Brower of Etzikom, AB on February 10th, 1950. She was predeceased by both of her parents as well as her brother, Roy Brower. Left to cherish her memory are her niece, Pearl (Dean) Jones; nephew, Gordon Brower; her chosen extended family, niece, Randi L’Heureux; son, Chan Phon; and her beloved cat, Miss Muffet.
Valerie was raised in Etzikom and spoke often of her memories growing up behind the counter of Brower’s General Store. After completing high school in Foremost, she completed her Bachelor of Music and decided that the best way to share her gift of music was to become a teacher. Many students learned to play on her beautiful grand piano, and many school productions included her hand bell choir. She spent several years teaching in elementary schools all around the province, and even came out of retirement to teach the Music for Young Children program through the Conservatory of Music & Dance. Her love of children was unmistakable throughout her career, and she often reflected that she did not need to have kids of her own because her students had been her children. This was evident when going through her photos and finding her class pictures from every year she had taught, as well as every individual student photo that she had been gifted.
Valerie touched the lives of all who met her. Her infectious smile lit up the room and was often accompanied by her little giggle. She was a very social person and almost never went anywhere she did not come across someone she knew. On the rare occasion she did not know someone, she would strike up a conversation and would visit as if she did. When scheduling errands, extra time was always allowed for, as one never knew just how long those visits would take.
She loved to travel and treasured the special times she spent with friends and relatives touring throughout the USA and around the world. Her house was filled with pictures and mementos from those trips, and if ever there was a question about any of her previous destinations, the books lining the shelves of her office housed all the answers.
Valerie was a long-time member of both the Eastern Star Murray Chapter No 58 and the Sons of Norway, when it was still active in Medicine Hat. She truly enjoyed the friends she made and the events she was able to attend within both groups.
In her later years, she was tasked with taking care of the family ranch after her brother passed away. While country life had always been in the background for her, she often liked to joke that she was a ‘cow lady’ now, and she enjoyed all she learned from Dean about innovations and improvements to ranching throughout the years.
There will be a private memorial celebration of Valerie’s life in the New Year. The family will reach out with details of the service once arrangements have been made. Anyone wishing to make donations in Valerie’s name may do so to H.A.L.O., Southern Alberta Medic Air Society 666 – 5th Street SW Medicine Hat AB T1A 4H6. Condolences may be sent through http://www.saamis.com or to condolences@saamis.com subject heading Valerie Brower. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to

RONALD “RON” DYKSHOORN

RONALD “RON” DYKSHOORN 1951 2023
Mr. Ron Dykshoorn of Foremost, Alberta, beloved husband of Lorinda, passed away suddenly in his home on December 22, 2023, at the age of 72 years.
Ron was born on the farm to Dirk (Dick) and Wandreina (Dena) Dykshoorn in Foremost on November 7, 1951. He called Dykshoorn Farms his home for the entirety of his life except for two winters in early adulthood that were spent living in the lower mainland with friends and cousins. Ever since he was a boy, Ron loved animals, especially his horses. Being a true cowboy at heart, he treasured the time he spent in the saddle. Ron loved his community and gave generously of his time, serving on council at Burdett Christian Reformed Church numerous times, being an integral part of Foremost Rodeo, being a school team bus driver for Foremost School, and serving on various boards in the community. Ron was a faithful friend and was well known for his kind and gentle smile that he freely gave to everyone he met. Though he never wanted to be centre of attention, he loved to visit and spend time with his friends. Ron’s love of learning never waned, and he took time to continue to educate himself, making him a rich source of wisdom and knowledge for those who would ask.
The thing Ron loved most was his family. And above all, his bride of nearly 44 years, Lorinda (nee Whittle). Married February 9, 1980, Ron and Rin lived a life surrounded by family, boasting five children and their spouses and eleven grandchildren. Though Ron experienced success in many areas, his family was his source of pride. Ron taught them the values of hard work, honesty, humility, and above all a deep and genuine faith in the saving power of the Lord.

Besides his loving wife, Lorinda, Ron is survived by his children Shellie and Jerry Wolverton, Chet and Tania Dykshoorn, Beckie and Justin Elway, Kristy and Mark Johnson, and Sam and Michelle Dykshoorn; his grandchildren, Jaida, Kayleigh, and Coehn Wolverton, Maddyson, Lucas, and Elizabeth Dykshoorn, Noah, Lucy, and Ethan Elway, and Jaden and Jax Dykshoorn; and, his sisters, Marion (Bryan) Wilde, Leona Heppler, and Wanda (Gary) Williams.
Ron was predeceased by his parents Dick and Dena (Jansen), and his infant brother Peter.
A Funeral Service will be held at 2:00 PM on Friday, January 5, 2023, at BURDETT CHRISTIAN REFORMED CHURCH 121075 TOWNSHIP RD 82, Burdett, Alberta with Pastor Rick Roeda officiating. Ron will be laid to rest in Highfield Cemetery at a private graveside service.
Flowers are gratefully declined. Those who wish, memorial donations may be made to Village of Foremost, designated to the Foremost Firefighters Association.

LORRAINE “LORI” JANS

1958 ~ LORRAINE “LORI” JANS ~ 2023
It is with heavy hearts that we have to say goodbye to a loving Wife, Mom, and devoted Grandma. Lori left us suddenly on December 22, 2023 but forever will remain in our hearts and memories. She loved her family fiercely and made sure that holidays were a special occasion and a reason for the family to come together. Lori loved her community, her school bus kids, and her ducks. Many years of her life were dedicated to 4H as a member, leader, and volunteer. She worked for the Curling Club in Medicine Hat, had a successful children’s consignment store called Stuff for Kids and upon moving to Schuler, started the Schuler Corner Store with Dale. Lori loved the community of Schuler and became involved in the Community Association, helping on various committees for events and anniversaries, and never missed the bike parades. Lori drove school bus and loved her school bus kids as her own, she helped them with homework, and attended their extra curricular events, graduations and even weddings. Schuler school and its students held a special place in her heart and she wasn’t planning on retiring until the end of June. Lori worked over 20 years as a gate attendant with the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede and loved her summer gig. Most recently, she and a neighbor opened Pebblers Kitchen at the rink and she loved her time there being able to cook and allow a place for the community to gather. She absolutely adored her grandchildren and was their biggest cheerleader, the calendar was filled with all of the kids activities, having time with them was important and she wanted to be there to support them, she was so proud of their achievements. Whether it was crafts, baking, cooking, puzzles, sleepovers or playing dress up, Grandma made it special. Family was everything to Lori. Easter egg hunts, the wonderful Thanksgiving meals and the Christmas village complete with each Grandchild’s individual handmade penguin that hung on the wall. We can only hope she knows all of it meant as much to us as it did to her. Lori made beautiful quilts, many that were donated to the hospital and other organizations. Spending time on the lake in the boat, fishing and camping brought a smile to her face and having the kids and grandkids join were even better. Lori and Dale loved their flowers and garden and always had a project on the go. Lori is cherished by her husband, Dale; daughter, Adele Hider, and her children, Eve and Gus; son, Chad (Jessica) Johnson, and their daughter, Shyra; daughter, Jolene (Trevor) Warburton, and their children, Tenley and Tripp; son, Bryce (Laura) Jans, and their children, Kyptan, Kaelyn, and Kolt; daughter, Naomi (Barry) Jensen; son, Gerritt (Ashley) Jans, and their children, Masen and Emeree; parents, Paul and Dorothy Noga; siblings, Tim (Amanda) Noga, Dan (Deb) Noga, Allen (Pat) Noga, Ron (Lynn) Noga, Marilyn Noga (Marj) and their families. And now, these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Corinthians 13:13 We invite you to help us celebrate a Wife, Mom, Grandma, Daughter, Sister and friend at the Cypress Centre, Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede Grounds, 2055 – 21 Avenue SE Medicine Hat, AB on Wednesday, January 3rd, 2024 at 11:30 am with Pastor Roland Weisbrot officiating.
