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
