Gertrude Sampson Gertrude "Buddy" Esther Sampson (nee Haenni) also known as "Gertie" passed away peacefully on the warm, sunny morning of September 5, 2021 at the age of 90 years. Buddy is survived by her two daughters Lynn and Janice and son in-law Mike Deans. Grandchildren Dayle and Tanner who were the apple of her eye. Whom she spoke of with great enthusiasm and pride and loved helping them grow into the wonderful young people they are today. Buddy graduated from the Weyburn Collegiate with honors in 1948, receiving a hardcover Emily Bronte - for her academic achievements. Buddy went on to marry Keith Sampson on August 30 1958, moving to Calgary where they began their life together. An accomplished gardener - her vegetables, flowers, and lawn were always a delight to experience. Her career spanned decades ranging from Banking to customer service, with a focus on integrity and thoroughness. A devoted confidant to her family and life long friends there was plenty of laughter and affection while sharing many adventures. Buddy had a great sense of humor and loved jokes. She enjoyed going to sporting events, equestrian show jumping, Bingo, the casino and afternoon drinks with friends. She loved all music, especially hymns which she knew too many to count by heart. It is no surprise that the final melody she hummed was "Jesus loves me". As per her wishes she will join her husband and family back in Weyburn Saskatchewan. In her honor please pour yourself a rum and coke and reflect on a happy time or two. In living memory of her, a tree will be planted in the Ann and Sandy Cross Conservation Area by McInnis and Holloway Funeral Home.
