Keddie, Stephen

Stephen Keddie beloved husband of Evelyn (Ev) Keddie of Calgary, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 10, 2008, after a short battle with Leukemia, at the age of 69 years.

Stephen was born and raised in Flin Flon, MB and returned there each summer to enjoy the lake and the family cottage at Denare Beach, SK. Stephen retired from the Calgary Board of Education in 1998, after serving many years in various jobs, finally as principal of the Cluster Schools, Rundle Elementary and Colonel J Fred Scott Elementary. Stephen enjoyed reading, history and archaeology, collecting “everything”, helping Ev with her rock and alpine garden and “puttering” at the cottage. He had so much pride in both Corinne’s and Gwen’s accomplishments that he never hesitated to brag about them. He brought happiness, great debates and many smiles to those who knew him, and will be missed dearly.

Besides his loving wife of forty-five years, left to cherish his memory are two daughters, Corinne (Bruce Beck) and Gwen (Jason Hart) and their beloved children Alexandra and Brady Stephen Hart (who adored their Bompa). He is also survived by sister Diane (Harvey Fleming) of Denare Beach, brothers David (Betsy) of Winnipeg and Andrew (Susan Berry) of Edmonton and nieces and nephews.

    I extend my condolences for Stephen Keddie; he was a great man, small wonder his son Andrew is so well liked by all who knew him. You could always find whatever you needed in KEDDIE HARDWARE in Flin Flon. I plan on buying a cabin at Denare Beach, so I hope we’ll meet when Andrew makes the trip back to his family’s cabin there.

    This response is almost a decade late because I was unaware that Stephen had passed away. Working with him in the Cluster schools was a fabulous experience and he taught me the value of reviewing the progress of each student every reporting period. Years later teachers in my school responded to the superintendent that this practice was the reason why Bowcroft students were acclaimed the highest overachievers in the school district. In my opinion, Stephen was an educational giant.
