BOYD, Sophie  
BOYD, Sophie It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Sophie Boyd (Baba) on Sunday, February 22, 2015 at 89 years of age. Although she will be sorely missed, Sophie truly had a wonderful life and was able to enjoy her family and friends and remain in her own home until the last few months of her life. Sophie was predeceased by her husband, Albert who passed away in 2008. She is survived by her sister, Mary Henderson of B.C., and three children; Barry, Robbie and Susan (Denis) O'Connor. Sophie is also survived by four grandchildren; Breanna (Ken) Hunt, Adam (Elisa) Boyd, Darylle (Chris) Shudra, Ashley (Jeff) Bajema and Carol Boyd-Meibock, mother of Breanna and Adam. She is also survived by five great-grandchildren, Madden, Peyton and Wyatt Bajema, Blake Shudra and William Hunt. Sophie was one of seven children and grew up on a farm near Opal, Alberta. She came to Edmonton as a young woman and that is where she met her future husband, Albert (Al) Boyd. Besides her enjoyment of family, Sophie was also an avid golfer and bowler in her younger years. She was a spectacular cook and made every family get-together truly special with her fusion of traditional North American and Ukrainian dishes. In her later years she remained an avid fan of professional golf, but her greatest passion was spending time with her growing family, especially her great- grandchildren who she just adored. She was a kind and gentle person who was loved and admired by everyone who knew her. The family would like to thank Sophie's caregivers at the Choice Program, Meals on Wheels, Angels for Seniors and the kind staff at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital and the Royal Alex Hospital. A celebration of Sophie's life will be held at the Evergreen Funeral Chapel, 16204 Fort Road, Edmonton on Wednesday March 4 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of floral tributes, donations in Sophie's memory are welcome to the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation at www.stollerykids.com , or to the charitable organization of your choice.

DENHAM, John C.  
DENHAM, John C. Born in Wynyard, SK on September 21, 1938 Departed on February 26, 2015 and resided in Wetaskiwin, AB Funeral and Reception: Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of John Cecil Denham on Thursday, February 26, 2015 at age 76. Born September 21, 1938 in Wynyard, Saskatchewan the son of Cecil William Denham and Jonina Gudrun Buason; remembered by his loving wife, Bernice Larsen; children: Brian (Corrinne), Brent (Diane) and Jennifer (Neil) McLaren; stepchildren: Kevin (Crystal) Larsen and Cathy (Dwayne) Fiveland; grandchildren: Courtney, Morgan, Taylor, Sandy, Stephanie, Jonathan, TJ, Tanner and Chandler; great-grandchildren: Brooks and Brody; step-grandchildren: Ashlynn, Patrick, Zachary, Shayla and Tyson; brothers: Hugh, Emil, Arnold, Leonard, Clifford, Donald and Keith; sisters: Myrna, Shirley, Linda, Elaine, Donna and numerous nieces and nephews. John was predeceased by his father Cecil and his mother Jonina; sisters: Lorna and Lorraine, brother Earl and first wife, Joyce. John was extremely proud of all of his children, grandchildren and siblings. He was a man of his word, believing in the value of hard work, the importance of giving back to his community and helping his family members, friends and associates whenever needed. John thrived on working with his valued customers over the years and up until recently, rarely missed a Saturday selling cars. With his integrity, strong work ethic and passion for creating long lasting genuine connections, John built many successful businesses, most notably, Denham Ford - the most award-winning Ford Dealer in Canada. John was born and raised on a farm in Porcupine Plain, Saskatchewan. As one of sixteen children, John learned responsibility and overcoming adversity at an early age. With six cents in his pocket, John left home at age 16 to seek employment in the Alberta oil industry. John worked on drilling rigs in the Olds-Sundre area and developed a lifelong interest in the oil industry. Although John enjoyed working on the oil rigs, he desired to create a business of his own. In 1960, John purchased the Ford dealership in Wetaskiwin at age 22, making him the youngest Auto Dealer in Canada. From its humble beginnings, the dealership evolved into one of the most respected Ford retailers in all of Canada, serving the community for over 50 years and winning more Distinguished Achievement Awards, Chairman's Awards, North American Customer Excellence Awards, President's Awards and Diamond Awards than any other dealership in Canada, forty-six awards in total. As a true entrepreneur, John's business portfolio has grown to include other dealerships, the hospitality industry and real estate ventures. Throughout his business life, John was truly appreciative of all of his employees in the organization. John has always been very involved in his community. He spent many years as a director of the Wetaskiwin Chamber of Commerce. He was also elected by the members of the Chamber to serve as the President of the Chamber of Commerce. John spent twenty years as a member of the Kinsmen Club of Wetaskiwin, serving on many different committees and as the club's President. John spent ten years with the North American Snowmobile Racing Association and was Chairman of the Board for five years. John's companies have been sponsors of many community organizations such as hockey, baseball, 4H clubs, rodeos and regularly donated to many local charitable organizations. John's hard work and leadership in the community was recognized by the local chapter of the Jaycees, who appointed him one of The Ten Most Outstanding Young Men in all of Alberta. Time Magazine awarded John their highly coveted Dealer of the Year Award for his dedication to his community, success in business, and involvement in the Motor Dealers Association of Alberta. One of the proudest moments for John came when the Wetaskiwin Chamber of Commerce named him Citizen of the Year for his outstanding contribution to his community. John will be remembered as a role model and mentor to many, a business leader within the community and a loving husband, father and grandfather. John was greatly loved and will be missed by all the people whose lives he impacted. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at the Calvary Baptist Church in Wetaskiwin, Alberta with a reception to follow. Memorial tributes may be made directly to the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation – Palliative Care Unit for those who wish to make a donation. Baker Funeral Chapel, Wetaskiwin in care of arrangements.

EARL, Diane (Crowe)  
EARL, Diane (Crowe) I was born in Truro and raised in Brookfield, Nova Scotia. I was living at Jackfish Lake in Parkland County, Alberta at the time of my death. I left this earth on February 25 to join my fur children Carly, Simon and Annie; my mom Lenna Crowe; my brothers James and Michael Crowe; my sister and best friend Karen Watcher; my sister-in-law Penny Crowe; my uncle Bernie; my aunts Betty, Ileen, Thelma and Kay; my cousin Rob and my nephew Michael John. Left is my husband Kevin, a great man and the love of my life for over thirty- seven years and our fur children Jade and Tucker. Left also are my father Bernard Crowe and my brothers Colie (Donna), David (Kim) and Reg; my sisters-in-law Belinda Crowe, Bev Samson, Debbie Yuill, Dolly Crowe, Kerry Fitch (Gary) and Tracey Bowden (Tom). I leave also my aunt Joan and my uncle Vernon, cousins, nieces, nephews and my wonderful friends, all of whom I loved dearly. Proudly, I represented my hometown, province and country in wheelchair sports and was a member of the first women's Canadian wheelchair basketball team. I was honoured to be inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame for athletics and the Canadian Wheelchair Basketball Association Hall of Fame. It was always my belief that we should all leave our community a better place than we found it, and to that end I tried to live a good life and give back when I could. Two life accomplishments made me particularly proud. One was being the first person in Canada using a wheelchair for mobility to be accepted into the Bachelor of Physical Education Program at Dalhousie University and to graduate with a Bachelor of Physical Education Degree in 1975 from the University of Alberta. Today when a person with a disability wants to enter their particular field of study I believe there are fewer questions and obstacles, and that is as it should be. In the 1970s that was not always the case, and I commend my universities for taking a chance on me. I recognize Dick Loiselle, Carolyn Jacks (Dalhousie) and Bob Steadward (U of A) for their support. Secondly, along with a great team at Alberta Transportation and Utilities, 1987-90, we developed and implemented a Barrier Free Transportation Policy for the province of Alberta. That was really important work at the time and Alberta was one of the first provinces in Canada, if not the first, to develop and implement such a policy to help eliminate public transportation barriers for people with disabilities. I was indeed fortunate to have the best family physician possible and I thank Dr. Tom Ranieri for his years of dedication and caring support. It was always my decision and wish that no formal service be held, but I ask you, my family, friends and former colleagues, to remember the good times we spent together. I hope those memories make you smile or laugh and make you glad that we knew one another. My last wish for you is to live every day to the fullest. If you wish, a donation to any organization that helps animals, to an organization that provides support or sports for persons with disabilities, to the Northern Alberta Urology Foundation or to the Alberta Cancer Foundation will be appreciated.
