Our sweet loving Mother worked so hard her whole life to provide a loving home for five children. She had the most beautiful gardens, with flowers and fresh vegetables. and canned lots of food for us. We never went without and my mother was always there for us with loving hands to hold us and sweet kisses of comfort. There was never any shortage of love in her heart for all her children. Words cannot express how deeply she will be missed. We will love her forever in our hearts and sweet loving memories will last us a lifetime. Thank you Mom, we love and miss much... We shall see you again in Heaven. The Funeral Service will be held at SAAMIS MEMORIAL FUNERAL CHAPEL, 1 Dunmore Road SE, on Saturday, February 8th, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. with Lt.

My mom Freda resides at the same care home where sweet kind Tillie lived in Medicine Hat. She and her daughters were some of the nicest people I had the privilege of meeting.
My mom and I send heartfelt condolences, prayers, love and comfort to Tillie's family.
Thank you for friendship and love. God bless you and keep you and may his face to shine upon you. God only picks the nicest flowers for his garden. Cherish the sweet memories.
With thoughtful prayers, Andrea and Freda Edel
