Robert and Alberta raised son Wayne and daughters Judy and Joyce. They farmed in the Red Willow area, enjoying the community and the farm lifestyle immensely. At retirement, Robert and Alberta, built and moved into their home in Stettler. They both thoroughly enjoyed those great years together. Many bus trips, to casinos, and exciting destinations were enjoyed; it seemed you could hardly catch her home!!
In 2004, Alberta, a widow of 4 years, moved into Paragon Place. What a wonderful time she had there!! She thoroughly enjoyed the activities in the lodge, as well as her Legion buddies and coffee – walkers. As she slowed down, her scooter kept her going!! Nothing much held her back. At age 97, Alberta truly lived a long, happy life. She enjoyed all life offered to the fullest! We miss you already Mom.
