Rochelle Carolle Goldade, beloved wife of Darrell Jones of Calgary, AB passed away peacefully on Monday, July 7, 2014 at the age of 53 years.
Rochelle was born on May 26, 1961 in Prelate, SK to Florence and Sam Goldade. The family moved to Calgary shortly after her birth. Rochelle always had a passion to be a teacher and taught in the Calgary Separate School system for twenty-eight years, teaching Physical Education and coaching all sports. She was a dedicated teacher and coach that was adored by everyone for her compassion for life and never ending smile and hearty laugh. Rochelle was a natural athlete and excelled at all sports. She loved playing baseball and was successful at the provincial and national levels in Ladies and Mixed. As time went on, she moved to curling and golf, winning bonspiels and was credited with two “hole in ones”.
Besides her loving husband Darrell, she is also survived by her step-children Josh (Leah) Jones; grandchildren, Scarlett and Vera of Duncan, BC, Colby Jones of London, England, and Rheann (Kyle) Clay of Calgary; her parents Sam and Florence Goldade; sister Ronalda (Howie) Scott; brother Bravin Goldade; nephews Landon and Tyrell Scott, and Jared Goldade; nieces Seirin and Kalida Goldade all of Calgary; and father-in-law Vernon Jones of Stettler, AB; brother-in-law Larry (Laurie) Jones of Stephenville, Texas. She also has numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and oh so many friends and teaching colleagues.
We already miss her energy, zest for life and that never ending smile.
