Spring storms Wednesday and Thursday found people stuck in snow banks, some even stranded overnight in ditches.

Spring storms Wednesday and Thursday found people stuck in snow banks, some even stranded overnight in ditches. Snowplows stuck, buses cancelled and people unable to get to work … welcome to spring!

We are happy to hear that Barb Carey was able to be transferred to Glenrose Hospital in Edmonton, from the University. She will be doing extensive therapy before coming home. Way to go, Barb!

On Monday, March 18, the Derr girls headed to the Coronation Music Festival, where Shayla received gold for her dance solo. And the group, including Shayla, Keonna Derr and McKenzie Hankins, received silver.

Our local 4Hers have been busy earning medals — once again. This Sunday saw them at the regionals in Stettler at the Rec Centre.

Keyonna Derr placed first in intermediate and Shayla Derr third in senior.

On Friday, Shayla Derr participated in the CARS (Catch A Rising Star) Festival and received a gold for her hip-hop solo and a plaque for highest in her class. Her group, along with Shayla and McKenzie Hankins, earned a gold on Saturday night for their performance.

Congratulations to all who participated.

Best wishes to Wade and Ybiett Diegel on the birth of their baby girl, Isabella Susan, on March 22 at Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton. She weighed in at six pounds. A sister for Cassandra and Jasmin and Alijah. Proud grandparents are Gloria and Stan Diegel, and great-grandmother Maria Diegel.

Congratulations to Kyle and Danielle Chadwick on the birth of their baby boy, Davis. Proud grandparents are Tom and Leona Chadwick.

We are sad to hear of the passing of Barb Diegel.

Barb is survived by her husband, Marvin of Stettler, sons Steven (Shannon) of Red Deer and their family; Calvin of Stettler and daughter Shannon (Mike) Krzyezkowski of Grande Prairie, and their family. She’s also survived by many other family and friends.

Funeral services were held Saturday in Stettler. Barb was 65 years old.
