WILDEMAN, Corilla Ann

June 16, 1961 – May 6, 2013

Corilla (Cori) Ann Wildeman (nee Mason) Born June 16, 1961, Died May 6, 2013. Cori left us all too soon after a significant struggle with an illness that had such an unfair advantage.

She leaves behind her loving husband John; her cherished children Jeffrey, Scott and Jennifer; parents Blair and Marlene; brothers Cameron (Angela), and Paul (Marina Susan); nieces Katherine and Francesca; nephews David, Steven, and Christian; in-laws Fern and Lorne; brother-in-law Tyler (Marnie); Aunt and Uncle Dorene and Gib Stiles and the Stiles family; Aunt Diane and the Lawford family, the extended Wildeman family, Gronsdahl family and numerous friends throughout Canada and colleagues at the Children’s Hospital. Her sister-in-law Carla predeceased her in 1981.

Cori was born in Calgary and was educated at Sunalta School and Western Canada High School where she first met John. She went on to receive her BSC in Speech Pathology and Audiology from University of Alberta in 1986 and a Masters in Clinical Sciences at the University of Western Ontario in 1988. John and Cori were married on March 6, 1993. Cori was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She was multi-talented whether she was demonstrating athletic prowess on the ski hill or in track and field with City and Provincial championship victories, showing off her artistic flair in public speaking competitions, or achieving academic excellence throughout her education. Cori’s best times were spent with her family. She was immensely proud of her husband and children and her time with them at the farm in Priddis, the cabins in Windermere, on family vacations in Hawaii and on skiing outings in many places were always being recounted to family and friends. Her work as a speech pathologist at the Alberta Children’s Hospital was an integral aspect of her life too. She was compassionate and caring for all of her patients. Her joy at being able to help children with speech and hearing challenges was real and profound. She also contributed to the greater good of her profession through her extensive involvement with the Speech and Hearing Audiologists of Alberta, now the Alberta College of Speech Language Pathologists and Audiologists including acting as the president of that association. Her sly sense of humour, infectious giggle and beautiful smile filled many rooms and our hearts.

Funeral Services will be held at Scarboro United Church (134 Scarboro Avenue S.W., Calgary, AB) on Monday, May 13, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation Brain Health Program.

In living memory of Corilla Wildeman, 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: 403-243-8200

Offer Condolence for the family of WILDEMAN, Corilla Ann

    Dear John , you don’t know me or my family but I knew Cori. She was our son’s speech pathologist at the Children’s Hospital in 1989/90. We knew her as Cori Mason. Over the years, I have crossed paths with her, knew she married and had children of her own. I am pretty sure she (you) are or were members of the Glencoe Club. I was very saddened to hear of her passing. This is a huge loss for you and your family.

    To John and kids and the Mason, Wildeman & Stiles families: my sincere condolences for your very devastating loss. Because I have lived outside Calgary for many years, Cori has always been that confident, cute, hardworking girl with the great smile, frozen in time from the late 70’s and 80’s. A bubbly cheerleader at Western Canada sporting events. I remember Cori as always surrounded by a multitude of cousins, siblings and friends at Lake Windermere; she was active on the water and could zip down the Panorama ski hill in perfect downhill style. She will be so greatly missed. My thoughts are with all her family at this very saddest of times.

Cori was a dear friend and colleague who motivated me in University with her enthusiasm to learn and her need to question and search for answers. Although we did not see each other frequently in recent years, whenever we ran into each other at conferences we would chat as if no time had passed. She would fill me in with what was happening with her immediate and extended family. Her family stories were filled with love and pride. May the loving memories of Cori comfort you in the days ahead.

I will always remember with fondness my highschool days playing football or running track and having Cori and the cheerleading squad cheer us on to victory. While in recent years conversations were usually limited to a few words, I will always cherish the memories of her friendship, support and laughter while at Western. We all shared a time that can never be erased. Cori’s memory will live on in all who were blessed to know her. Rest in Peace Cori!!
