McCANN, Lyle and Marie
Lyle and Marie McCann, in the golden years of a rich and beautiful life, tragically disappeared on July 3, 2010. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, July 30, 2011, which would have been their 59th Wedding Anniversary.
Lyle and Marie are survived by their three children: Bretton (Mary Ann), Lance (Irene) and Trudy; five grandchildren: Brett (Selina), Nicole (Casey), Russell, Mika and Morgan; and two great-grandchildren: Benson and Chantelle.
Lyle was born near Red Deer, Alberta on August 24, 1931 to Tom and Estella McCann. He is survived by three brothers: Grant (Viola), Jack (Betty) and Clifford (Mary Lou); and a sister: Maxine (Fred). Lyle was predeceased by a sister: Lois.
Marie was born in Torrington, Alberta, October 15, 1932 to Emil and Anna Waltz. She is survived by two sisters: Lydia (Tony) and Alice (Tom). Marie was predeceased by two brothers: Victor and Don; and two sisters: Alvina (Alfred) and Verna (Fred).
Lyle and Marie were married July 30, 1952 in Torrington, Alberta. They resided in St Albert since 1964.
Lyle was a long-haul trucker for most of his working career regularly travelling to points in Alberta, British Columbia and the rest of North America. In their later years, Lyle and Marie loved travelling with their motor home. For many winters, they would travel to the United States for several months. In summer months, they would take weekend trips to points within Alberta. They particularly loved to fish at a favorite campground near Athabasca.
In a celebration of their life, a Memorial Service will be held at the St. Albert Catholic Church (7 Vital Avenue) on July 30, 2011 at 11:00 a.m.
As a family, we wish to express our gratitude for your many kindnesses and support, and welcome your attendance at the Memorial Service.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Search and Rescue Association of Alberta ( ).
