Sympathy is extended to the family of Isobel Baker, who passed away last week.

The Bakers lived where Ross and Sheryl Bunbury now live. Isobel taught elementary school in Halkirk for many years until their retirement to Calgary in 1974. Their story is on pages 556 and 317 of the Halkirk history book.

The funeral service was held at the United Church in Castor, with interment in the Castor cemetery beside her husband, Harley.

Kevin Issac passed away on Oct. 20 in the Stettler hospital. He moved into town from Edmonton about five years ago. Sympathy is extended to his family and friends.

Sympathy is extended to Jacquie and Paul Dietrich on the sudden passing of Jacquie’s mother, Elsie Anderson, at age 91. She resided in Sidney, B.C.
