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 www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
