MANDEVILLE PearlPosted: January 8th, 2016
Nov. 3, 1931 – Jan. 5, 2016
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of PEARL VICTORIA MANDEVILLE at the youthful age of 84. After a brief but courageous battle with cancer, Pearl passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends at St. Michael’s Health Centre, Palliative Care Unit. She was predeceased by husband Harold Mandeville, son-in-law Neil Pederson, parents Edna and Reg Cansdale, sister Margaret (Norm) Stuppard, brother Reg Cansdale, brothers-in-law Bob Magrath and Cecil Braaten. Those left to mourn her are: son Bryan, daughter Vicky, grandchildren Travis, Julie and Chase, sisters Betty-Anne Magrath and Dorothy Braaten, brother-in-law Fred Mandeville, sister-in-law Dixie Lockhart, as well as all those who were like family to Pearl and are too many to name.
Pearl has been an accomplished cowgirl, devoted wife and mother, and doting grandmother. She will be lovingly remembered for her fashionable style, her grace, and her beauty inside and out. Pearl had the biggest heart, which allowed her love to reach out not only to her real family, but also her rodeo family. She was an icon in the rodeo world, being inducted into the Canadian Rodeo Hall of Fame in 2015 after her husband Harold who was inducted in 1998. After 58 years of marriage, Harold was undoubtedly used to waiting for his wife and will surely be happy to greet her at Heaven’s gate after waiting there for her since 2008.
Relatives and friends are invited to pay their respects prior to the Funeral Service at ST. AUGUSTINE’S ANGLICAN CHURCH – 411 – 11th Street South, Lethbridge, Alberta on Monday, January 11th, 2016 from 10:00 – 11:00 A.M.
The Funeral Service will immediately follow the Visitation at ST. AUGUSTINE’S ANGLICAN CHURCH, at 11:00 A.M. with Canon James Robinson officiating.
