Recently, Muriel Ferguson celebrated her 99th birthday at Lacombe. Her daughter Glenna Stafford of Olds and son Jim Ferguson of Edmonton, her grandchildren and several nieces and nephews attended. Della and Bob Jones were among them. Muriel was a teacher in this area and she and her late husband Ross Ferguson farmed north of Endiang in the Cornucopia area at one time.
On Tuesday evening, a potluck supper was held at the Endmoor Drop-in Centre as the crib players wrapped up their crib season. The trophy for best average low score of the season was won by Lawrence Wilkie. Ken Schultz got an award for having the highest score in a game, not what you want to get.
A memorial service for Lillian Boehlke, better known at Billie Boehlke, was held at the Endiang Hall on Wednesday afternoon. Born Lillian Lenore Schultz, youngest child of Ed and Lena Schultz, Billie grew up in the Endiang district along with her brothers Jack and Elmer Schultz and sisters Elsie (Moen), May (Kenny) and Bunnie (Boehlke). A fellowship luncheon followed the service and then the cremated remains were interred at the Endiang Cemetery.
The community extends sympathy to the family of Dan Mohl, who passed away in Hanna on April 21 at the age of 71 years following a lengthy battle with cancer. Dan was well known in our community as his mother Martha (nee Ziemmer) Mohl was raised at Endiang as was his daughter-in-law Kris (nee Schultz) Mohl. Our thoughts are with his wife Shirley, children David (Kris) Mohl, Audra (Darcy) Limpert, Kris (Murray) Orr and Jay Mohl, his grandchildren, siblings, other relatives and friends in their sad loss. The funeral was held Monday in Hanna.
On Thursday a number of the local floor curlers were off to Big Valley for a tournament. One of the Endmoor teams brought home the top prize; congratulations go to Shirley Bates, Joe Knowles, Marj Sorensen and Bob Green. Two other teams from Endmoor also participated and all reported a good time.
Get well wishes go out to Dot Wasdal, who is a patient in the Red Deer hospital. Hope you are on the mend and well soon, Dot.
On Sunday the local floor curlers had a potluck dinner at the Endiang Hall to wind-up the floor curling season. They concluded with an afternoon of floor curling. Floor curling will resume again in the fall.
