Columnist cruises home after ‘Celebrity’ wedding

I’m back! Percy and I, along with John and Jewel, daughter Hannah and Jewel’s parents Wallace and June Winter, motored to Vancouver

I’m back! Percy and I, along with John and Jewel, daughter Hannah and Jewel’s parents Wallace and June Winter, motored to Vancouver, leaving home Sept. 13.

We boarded the Celebrity Century cruise ship Sept. 16, and John and Jewel were married by the captain on Sept. 17.

We enjoyed a nine-day cruise up the inside passage to Alaska, stopping at Sitka, Hoonah, Glacier Bay and the Hubbard glacier, Juneau and Ketchikan, before returning to Vancouver.

The weather was perfect.

Lee Courothers has returned from a two-week holiday in England, visiting her sister and other relatives, making it a very enjoyable time.

Bill and Joyce Hansel, along with daughter Mary Lou and Stan Botting, took a three-day trip to Moose Jaw, Sask., where they experienced the mineral spa and tunnels. They celebrated Mary Lou and Stan’s anniversary while there.

Gordie and Shirley Reynolds and Margaret Connon travelled to Calgary to help brother Glen and Mary Ellen Reynolds celebrate their 50th anniversary. Glen and Mary’s daughter was up from Ontario, as well.

The next weekend, Gordie and Shirley went to Ponoka to visit Gordie’s cousin Ron and Ruth Airey. After returning home, on Sept. 15, they — along with Margaret and Nelson Connon and Yvonne Coleman — helped Helen Bailey celebrate her 95th birthday. Best wishes go to Helen.

It was great news to hear that Gene Derr is back home and recovering from his open-heart surgery.

Stan Quance is recovering from recent and successful knee surgery.

Bonnie spent the weekend in Vancouver visiting her son Colter and had a great time attending the Madonna concert while there.

Barb Carey has received word of the passing of her aunt, Marion Johnson. Marion’s late husband Bert and Barb’s mother Maxine were siblings. Funeral services were held Tuesday in Calgary, with interment today in Stettler Cemetery.

Marion was born Jan. 7, 1930, and passed away Sept. 20 in Calgary. She leaves four sons —Ross, Ralph, Donald and David — and one daughter, Vicki (Ross) Walstrom of Botha.

Sincere sympathies go out to all members of the family
