REID, Zoe Diana

January 7, 1925 – St. John, NB
December 30, 2013 – Calgary, AB

It is with great sadness that we announce Zoe Diana Reid, passed away on Monday, December 30, 2013 at the age of 88 years.

Zoe was born on Wednesday, January 7, 1925 in St. John, New Brunswick. She married her husband Lyle on Saturday, August 30, 1947 and they shared 66 years of marriage. Zoe graduated as an R.N. from the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal on January 28, 1947.

Zoe was a people person, family always came first, then her church then whatever volunteer organization she could immerse herself in. P.E.O., Beta Sigma Phi, she sang in the church choir and was always involved in Women’s Church Organizations. Zoe worked at Lakeview United Church until her retirement. Her wry sense of humour endeared Zoe to all those she encountered, if she didn’t win you over with her sense of humour, her cooking would. Most of life’s problems were solved at a family get together over a good meal.

Zoe will be lovingly remembered by her husband Lyle Reid, three children Doug (Kate) Reid, Kathy (Irv) Sandulak and Lou (Jean) Reid, her three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

A Celebration of Zoe’s Life will be held at Grace Presbyterian Church (1009 – 15th Avenue S.W.) on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through Zoe love children so in lieu of flowers, we ask that memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, 2888 Shaganappi Trail N.W., Calgary, AB T3B 6A8, Telephone: (403) 955-8818. The family extends sincere gratitude to the staff at Chinook Care Centre for their kindness and compassion.

In living memory of Zoe Reid, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-

    Both my father and I will miss Zoe at Chinook Park nursing home. She befriended both of us, sat outside with us on occasion, and even last week said hi to me, as I walked past her. Our thoughts are with her family at this difficult time.

    We are so sad to see Zoe go but she’s with the angels now and singing in their choir. Loved the obit and true about her wry sense of humour, but you should have included that it always came with her beautiful, engaging, bright smile. We are looking forward to celebrating her life with you, and remembering a life truly well lived and loved.
