The Endiang community was shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Eugene Rabb on Jan. 9. Eugene and his wife Gloria retired in Endiang a number of years back and were most welcome additions to the community. They took great pride in their well-kept yard and home, and it was a jewel of the hamlet. Our thoughts of sympathy are with Gloria and family in their sad loss. A private family service will be held in Medicine Hat.

June Mattheis has returned home from an enjoyable three-week visit with her family — first with daughter Kimberly and family in B.C. then with son Tyler and family in Nova Scotia.

Our thoughts are with his wife Julie, children Sandra, Steven, Brent and Nancy and their families and other relatives in their time of loss.
