MR. GORDON FOSTER, 89, passed away Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at Piyami Place in Picture Butte. Gordon was born on October 23, 1923 in Commerce, Alberta and spent his life on the family farm west of Picture Butte.
Gordon leaves to cherish his memory, his daughter Pat (Bob) Jarvie; grandson Jonathan Jarvie; granddaughter Kendra Jarvie all of Lethbridge; sisters Merle Atkinson of Lethbridge, Lorna Murray, Wilda Murray, sister-in-law Alice Foster all of Picture Butte; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Gordon was predeceased by his wife Dorothy; son Ken Foster; parents George and Ruth Foster; brothers Norman, Allan, and Art; brothers-in-law Jim Murray, Charles Murray and Bob Atkinson; sisters-in-law Jolly and Marge; also by Dorothy’s parents John and Margaret Watson.
Gordon has resided the last few years at Piyami Lodge in Picture Butte and it was truly “home.” The family would like to thank all the staff at the lodge for the excellent care bestowed upon Gordon. They not only saw to his daily needs but treated him and loved him as if he were their own. The compassion and care that was received from these caregivers cannot be surpassed. We truly thank you. Also thank you to Dr. Mohamed; companions Mia, Rachel, and Sandi; and home care coordinator Mona Dueck, for their care, concern and support.
Cremation and a private graveside service will follow at a later date.
Remember Gordon not with sadness, but with the memory of the “twinkle” in his eye and the “giggles” that were so much part of him these last few years.
