REINHARDT, Fay Madeleine (nee Rothwell)

December 25, 1942 – Calgary, Alberta
May 6, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Fay passed away on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at the age of 75 years; a year and a day after her beloved husband Oscar’s passing.

Fay possessed amazing powers of positivity. After growing up on a farm in Didsbury, her family moved to Calgary where she completed her B.Ed. while starting a long career as a math teacher for the CBE. After finally deciding to start a family she found her true passion in adult education, becoming the favourite teacher of many. Fay will be lovingly remembered by her two daughters as a devoted and caring mother, the BEST MOMMY EVER!!! She loved spending time with her family, particularly summers at their little cabin on Chestermere Lake, and boating on Lake Okanagan. Feisty Foxy Fay Flew Away.

Fay is survived by her daughters, Sheryl Reinhardt (Philip Lijdsman), Heather Reinhardt (Kevin Kwok) and her sister, Diana Purves (Ross Purves).

A Celebration of Life for Fay will be held at McDougall United Church (8516 Athabasca Street S.E., Calgary, AB) on Monday, May 14, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Reception to follow at the Church. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Fay Reinhardt, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, CALGARY, AB, T2E 2V6, Telephone: 403-276-2296.
