May 28, 1994 – March 1, 2014
Owen Joseph Pedersen passed away in a tragic car accident near Picture Butte, Alberta, March 1, 2014 at the tender age of 19. Owen was born, May 28, 1994 in Claresholm, Alberta to Wayne and Teresa Pedersen. He was the final touch that turned our family from good to fantastic. He is survived by his siblings, Leah (Travis) Bevan of Lethbridge, Kurtis of Calgary and Heidi of Picture Butte. He was the pride of his Grandparents, Garry and Loraine Pedersen of Claresholm and Albert (deceased) and Linda Tynan of Calgary and Great-Grandmother Evelyn Ewen of Claresholm. Owen loved his family; his Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Niece will miss his beanstalk skinny, 6’2″ (and growing) gentle kindness, dry humor, and continuous BIG smile. Owen enjoyed school in Claresholm and extra-curricular activities: yearbook, volleyball, and drama. He enjoyed his fellow employees at Wendy’s in Lethbridge while paying the bills and contemplating life’s next big decision. Owen enjoyed traveling in Europe with the WCCHS travel club. He volunteered four summers sweating, getting dirty and “rejoicing” at the Nauvoo Pageant for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Nauvoo, Illinois. Owen – Thank you for being a part of our lives and providing an extra push to endure to the end. We will join you on the other side; families can be together forever. The funeral service will be held on Friday, March 7, 2014 at 2:00 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (4924 – 3rd Street East, Claresholm) Bishop Joe Toone will preside. You are invited to meet with the family beginning at 1:00 pm in the Relief Society Room prior to the service. In lieu of flowers, donations in Owen’s memory may be made to the charity of your choice.
