THIBAULT, Paul Emile

Paul Thibault, beloved husband of Joyce Thibault (Phillips), passed away in Lethbridge on Monday, August 2, 2021, at the age of 92.

Paul was born on December 12, 1928, in Ponteix, Saskatchewan and grew up on his parent’s farm in Aneroid, Saskatchewan.

Paul and his family moved to Lethbridge in 1966 where he worked as a pharmacist at the College Mall Woolco Pharmacy until his retirement in 1993. Paul had very fond memories of the people he worked with during his career at the pharmacy.

Paul was a committed husband and father and had a close relationship with his and Joyce’s brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews throughout his life.
