January 4, 1928-January 29, 2020

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother AMY MARY WOOLFORD, on January 29, 2020 at the age of 92 years old.

Mom is survived by her five children, Trudy (Dennis) Hatt, Jack (Anna) Woolford, Rod (Trudy) Woolford, Lynda (Rick) Smith and Brenda (Frank) Pigat, as well as 11 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.

Mom was predeceased by our dad, Kenneth Woolford on July 14, 1999.

Mom was born to John and Edith Olshaskie on January 4, 1928. She was the first daughter born to them, later joined by sisters Eva (Lyle) Vance, and Jean (Kelvin) MacDonnell. She was a tomboy who loved to be outside, helping her dad run their farm.

She met the love of her life Ken at a Harrisville dance, and married him June 18, 1948.

Mom devoted her life to helping Dad on the ranch and raising her five children. In her later years she finally had the time to develop her artistic talents, painting many beautiful pictures and having them displayed in several art shows. She loved family history and spent many hours researching and documenting information.

The ranch was a welcoming place for friends and family. She will always have a special place in the hearts of her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Her last few years were sometimes a struggle, but she never complained, becoming a favorite resident at St. Mikes with her smile. We would like to extend our gratitude to the staff who treated her with dignity and respect.

The Funeral Service will be held at the South Hill Chapel, 950 Main Street in Cardston Alberta on Monday February 3, 2020 at 1:00 pm. Interment in St. Stephen’s Cemetery, Harrisville.

In lieu of flowers, donations gratefully accepted for St. Andrews United Church, Cardston.

My heart aches for you and your families; you have so many great memories of your parents, cherish them and tell all the stories, and there will be many, I am sure. I am sorry to not have come to Amy’s farewell as I didn’t find out until today that she had passed. I will hold her in my heart for a little while yet today and remember some very happy times.
