Community mourns Brennen’s sudden passing



The village of Gadsby, family and friends were all shocked and saddened at the sudden death of Mary Brennen. Mary and her daughter Tammy and granddaughter Alison were in Canmore, enjoying a three generation scrapbooking weekend, when Mary collapsed. Sincere sympathies to Tammy and Darcy Fleck, Jackie and Alison, as well as many other nieces and nephews and relatives. Funeral services will be held in Stettler on Saturday at 2 p.m.

Mary was the president of the Gadsby District Hobby Club and a manager at Sobeys bakery in Stettler. She will leave many empty spots in our lives. Mary was 59.

A village meeting took place last Tuesday concerning a fire-protection plan. Available monies, costs per taxpayer and town responsibility were among the topics. A good turnout of property owners helped settle the issues. Coffee and sweets ended the evening.

Don’t forget the crib tournament this afternoon at the church in Gadsby. Games start at 1:30 p.m.

Get well wishes to Don Jacques, who is in hospital. Daughter Kerri and James have been busy supporting both mom and dad the past few weeks.

Bill and Joyce Hansel enjoyed their great-granddaughter McKenna when she stayed with grandpa and grandma for a weekend. Joyce also helped with the Kinettes’ rummage sale in Stettler and reported a well-organized and well attended event.
