Gadsby lost another of its senior citizens this week with the passing of Connie Williams at 96 years of age.

Connie Rushton was raised in Gadsby where she took most of her schooling.

After living with her husband in Edmonton and Stettler, Connie moved back to Stettler into Paragon Place.

Connie was able to take part in Gadsby’s 100th anniversary celebrations last August, riding with her nieces and nephews and the Clarke family in the parade.

Funeral services were held in Stettler.

Sincere sympathies to the Clarke and Rushton families.

Get-well wishes to Frank Hadwin, Don Tuchscherer, Manuel Heer, to name a few.
