Alina "Ala" Verrey passed away on Saturday, July 28, 2012 at the age of 60 years after a courageous battle with cancer. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Mark Verrey; daughter Ania Verrey; grandchildren, Carly, Camille, and Coda; as well as her brothers and nephews in Poland. Alina immigrated to Canada just in time for the Calgary Winter Olympic Games and was married on March 12 of that year. She loved skating, swimming and sailing, but one of her main loves was for her daughter and "the girls", and her best buddy "Pogo" the Pyrenees/Border Collie-cross family dog. She originally worked at Aon and previously at Pembina; at both locations she created a lot of close friendships. Foothills Alliance Church became her extended family who supported her in unbelievable ways especially towards the end, and through them she found her way to the good Lord. Grateful thanks to the Tom Baker Centre and to the superb assistance of the palliative care nurses. A Memorial Service will be held at Foothills Alliance Church (333 Edgepark Boulevard N.W.) on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting www.leydens.com. Arrangements entrusted to LEYDEN'S FUNERAL HOME and CREMATORIUM (304 - 18 Avenue S.W., Calgary, AB). Telephone: 403-228-4422.
