Stauble: (Kidd) Phyllis Lorraine
January 17, 1925 – Merid, Saskatchewan
March 22, 2020 – Calgary, Alberta
It is with heartfelt sadness we announce the death of our mother Phyllis Stauble, at the age of 95 years. She died peacefully surrounded by loved ones on March 22, 2020, in Calgary, after a courageous battle with cancer. We are eternally grateful for her life and the love she gave to us all.
Phyllis lived a full and vibrant life. She was known for her caring, kindness and her quick willingness to always lend a hand. She adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed her garden, spending time on her many crafts, creating poems and prose and was always ready for a round of cards or game of scrabble.
Phyllis is survived by her children, Lorridawn (Tim) Ivamy, David (Mary) Stauble, Joy (Mark) Van Marck and Karen (Doug) Ruzicki. She will also be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Cory (Larisa), Ethan and Eleanor Van Marck, Cara (Barry), Tristan and Gavin Tobin, Curtis Van Marck, Adam (Mary-Lynne), Emmett and Evelyne Stauble, Weston, Janae and Nolan Ruzicki, as well as many, many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
She was predeceased by her husband, Gordon (of 52 years) in 1999 and an infant son in 1961.
She was also predeceased by her parents, Will and Maggie Kidd, and her siblings and their spouses, Edith (Emile) Wauthier, Annie (Roy) Warrington, Harvey (Inez) Kidd, Vera (Lawrence) Ross, Audrey (Alvin) Cowie, and Gordon’s siblings and spouses, Marion (Alan) Jones, Luetta (Bert) Kitts, Weston Stauble and Rod (Meryle) Stauble.
A private family service will be held at the Alsask United Church and she will be laid to rest beside Gordon in the Alsask Cemetery. Condolences may be forwarded through www.ofsmacleans.com.
