MEHEW, CarolynPosted: October 1st, 2020
CAROLYN EDITH (LOOSE) MEHEW, beloved wife of the late Wayne Mehew, of Magrath, passed away surrounded by her four daughters at the Prairie Ridge Good Sams in Raymond on Monday, September 28, 2020 at the age of 79 after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s.
Carolyn was born to Ervin & Hope Loose of Magrath, AB on November 22, 1940. She grew up on the family farm and completed school in Magrath. She then attended the Calgary General Hospital Nursing program for one year. In 1960, she married Leonard Wayne Mehew. They lived in Welling, AB before moving to the Del Bonita farm in 1963 where she raised her four daughters.
She is survived by her daughters, Kate (Carl Coventry) Clarke, Pam (Mike) Lloyd, Gwen (Robert) Holzwarth and Becky (Bruce) Tricsli. She was also blessed with ten grandsons and three great-grandchildren.
Carolyn was a feisty redhead who embraced life. She loved adventure and was a lifelong learner; there was always one or two projects on the go. Dad and his Harley were waiting for Mom on September 28, 2020, as Uncle Johnny said, “There was one heck of a party.”
A heartfelt thanks to the staff of Prairie Ridge Good Sams in Raymond for all the love and tender care she received.
A Visitation will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 St. S, Lethbridge, AB on Friday, October 2, 2020 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
A Graveside Service will be held at the MAGRATH CEMETERY on Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 11:00 AM with Patrick Siedlecki officiating.
