CARMEN SMITH

CARMEN SMITH 1942 ~ 2024 Carmen Veronica Smith was born in Calgary on July 5, 1942, to Hugh and Bessie Smith and passed away at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on Sunday, June 30, 2024, at the age of 81 years.
Carmen enjoyed many great adventures with her first husband, William (Bill) Lewinske, as they motorcycled across Canada and the United States. They divorced in 1986. Her adventures didn’t stop there though as she continued to travel around the US with her partner, Don Sorensen until settling down in Creston, BC.
Carmen created beautiful pictures by needlework and cross-stitch. She loved to knit and thankfully most of the members of her family have at least one pair of gorgeous socks to remember her by. She was an avid gardener and took great pride in growing beautiful roses and not having a single weed competing with her flowers.
Carmen is survived by her two daughters, Brandi Lewinske and Tannis Lewinske; her grandchildren, Jessie Lewinske-Jones and Bronte Lewinske as well as her beloved mini Dachshund, Bella.
Dignified cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held in her honour at a later date. (Condolences may be expressed by visiting http://www.cooksouthland.com) Honoured to serve the family is

TED BIERBACH

TED BIERBACH 1940-2024
Ted Bierbach, beloved husband of Judy, passed away after a tragic ranching accident on June 30th, 2024. He is survived by his wife Judy, sons Jason (Carmen, Jenna and Evan), Wade (Jayda, Anya and Annika). He was predeceased by his parents Emanuel and Elsie, brothers Walter (Mary) and Leonord (Marie).
Ted, known more as Teddy, was born in Roseglen, Alberta on May 26, 1940. He was raised in the Bowmantan district in his early years. The family moved to Medicine Hat in1953, for Ted to be closer to school. He was an average student but excelled with a strong mechanical aptitude. Ted played high school sports, most notably hockey and football. He spent his spare time driving a young Judith Northam around town and leading her down the garden path. Ted graduated from Medicine Hat High School in 1960, and went on for an auto mechanics diploma at SAIT. Ted and Judy continued to date while attending post-secondary school. They returned to Medicine Hat and he became a mechanic at Gardner Motors, eventually attaining shop foreman. Ted continued to be involved with farming a small half section of land during this time. Ted and Judy were married in 1964, and had their first son Jason in 1967. Shortly thereafter another son, Wade arrived in 1970. Ted continued to work at Gardner Motors until 1993, but his true calling was to return to the home farm when his middle brother Leonard passed away. Ted returned to his true passion, being a steward of the land and working with cattle. He was happiest being with his hunting buddies, family camping, fishing, and boating. Ted had a smile on his face while spending quality time with family and friends enjoying a nice meal, stories and laughter. The funeral service will be held in VICTORY LUTHERAN CHURCH (2793 Southview Drive SE) on Saturday, July 6, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Roland Weisbrot officiating.
