With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Joann Gladys Baldassi our loving Mom, Grammy, Sister and friend.
Joann is lovingly remembered by her two sons Aaron Baldassi and Jai (Katrina) Conners, her four grandchildren Devon Conners, Shalynn Wilkinson, Shelby Conners and Jace Conners, her brother Larry (Sandy) Whittiker and all her friends who were near and dear to her. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
Joann was born in Lethbridge, AB before her and her family moved to Nanaimo, BC. She later married and had two wonderful boys, Aaron and Jai that became her entire world. Once the boys had left home she had the opportunity to move around, she lived in Nova Scotia with Aaron and in Fort McMurray with both boys before moving to Lethbridge to get back to her roots. After getting back to her roots, she made the choice to move to Drumheller to be closer to her family and grandchildren. She got to spend a couple years enjoying her family and fun times with friends. She loved nights by the fire, going out dancing, drinks with friends and as always her family. No matter what she had going her family always came first. We always looked forward to the early morning or late evening phone calls just to chat, they will be greatly missed. She passed peacefully surrounded by family and more love than anyone could imagine.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday,September 7, 2019 at the Drumheller Royal Canadian Legion, 295 Centre Street, at 3:00 p.m. 35c November 28, 1937 - August 21, 2019
It is with heavy hearts the family of Patricia Ann Symowoniuk announce her passing on Wednesday, August 21 in Red Deer, AB at age 81, with family by her side. Patty was born in Drumheller, AB and was the daughter of Michael and Jean Boychuk. She attended school in Rosedale and as she grew into a young woman, had many wonderful jobs, the Bank, Bookkeeper for Andreasen Bros. and for the past 40 plus years she was the Post Master of the Rosedale Post Office.
On June 29, 1961 she married Walter Symowoniuk, they resided in Rosedale which is where they raised their 3 sons... Michael, John and Taras.
Patty had many passions in life, her boys were at the top of her list, she loved cooking for them and passed on her favorite recipes to Michael and John. Her vegetable and flower gardens were her pride and joy. She had a love for her ornamental roosters and chickens, they were on display throughout the house, this kept her memory alive of the chicken/pigeon coupe at the old house by the bridge. Her yard and post office would be seasonally decorated for herself and especially for the young children in the community. Her Saturday shopping trips with her sister Shirley were always something she looked forward to ... both looking for the best treasures around town. The bond between these two sisters grew year after year and especially this past year. Patty always said Shirley kept their lives interesting.
Over the years, the community residents became part of the family as she watched family after family, generation after generation grow up in the Rosedale Community ..... she was loved and respected by so many! She was the Ann Landers of Rosedale... giving all a beautiful smile and advice if they needed. The community is already missing this Angel of a Woman.
Patty will be fondly remembered by her family:
Sons John (Tracey & Kyle), Taras (Brandon, Janet, Cassie & Cody) daughter-in-law Tracy Symowoniuk.
Sister Shirley Los and her boys, Rocky and Vanda, Rod and Jacqueline, Rick and Neliana, Jason and families.
Patty was predeceased by her son Michael, husband Walter, her parents Michael and Jean Boychuk, as well as her baby brother Michael.
To honour Patty’s wishes a small gathering will be planned in the coming months.
In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, memorial donations can be made to the Symowoniuk Legacy Park , in memory of Patty and Michael. Tracy Symowoniuk Royal Bank, Box 2580, Drumheller, AB T0J 0Y0 tsymowo[email protected]mail.com for etransfer
