January 18, 1964 – September 23, 2012
Faced with serious health challenges, the Creator decided it was time for our beloved Choose to go home. Even though we are sad she left so soon, we take comfort in the fact she is now free of pain and suffering.
Choose was born in Calgary and raised in Morley. As a child, she briefly went to school in Washington through the Mormon placement program. Upon her return, Choose continued her education in Morley and Exshaw. Choose was a strong woman who was not afraid to say what was on her mind. She cared about her family and especially loved her nieces and nephews. Choose also enjoyed spending time with Blair, her partner of 22 years. They took care of each other and liked making crafts together.
In addition to Blair, left to mourn is her brother, Lionel (Lana), her half brother Clayton, and half sisters Margaret (Terry), Wanda (Felix), Koko (Fred), Corrina (Lenny), and Marci (Dave). Choose will also be missed by her nieces and nephews, as well as her aunts, uncles and cousins. We are sorry if we’ve missed anyone. Choose is now with family members that went before her, including her dad, Lawrence, mom, Mary-Ann, brothers Barry and Orrin, sisters Verena and Rosie, grandparents, and various aunts, uncles and cousins.
Wake services will be held at the residence of the late Mary Ann Fox (Morley, AB) on Wednesday, September 26, 2012, at 1:00 pm. Funeral services will be held at Morley United Church on Friday, September 28, 2012 at 1:00 pm. Graveside service to follow at the Chiniki Cemetery (Morley, AB). Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. Thank-you to the doctors and nurses at Foothills Hospital ICU who kept Choose comfortable in her final days.
