We extend sympathy to the family of Margaret (nee Hogg) Groat on her passing on July 14 at the age of 81 years. Margaret was a long-time resident of our community before retiring to Hanna. Margaret was well known as a rural correspondent for the Hanna Herald and Stettler Independent as she wrote the Endiang news column for 41 years.
She was an active volunteer in community organizations and rarely missed a community function. Margaret managed to overcome the adversities life handed out and was a survivor. Our thoughts are with her family in their sad loss. The funeral and burial will take place at Endiang on Wednesday.
Get well wishes go out to Bruce Woelk who is back in Calgary taking treatments at the Tom Baker Cancer Clinic. We hope you are back on the road to recovery soon Bruce.
Get well wishes also go to Florence Tucker who had a stay in the Hanna hospital and Walter Schuler in the Stettler hospital.
