The latest from Byemoor/Endiang

By Les and Rosemary Stulberg

Keep in mind the Endmoor Thunder Mites hockey team is hosting their home tournament on Jan. 29 at the Endmoor Arena in Byemoor. Come out and support the young hockey players.

Clearview Public Schools has announced a free online family literacy program that may interest parents with pre-school age children.

The program caters to the little learners with a half-hour of play, early literacy, numeracy and songs.

The program goes each Friday from Jan. 14 – Feb. 18 at 9:30 to 10 a.m. Register by email at jmc.mcmahon@gmail.com and a Zoom link will be sent to the registered families. New families are welcome to join throughout the program.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Evelyn Walker who passed away on Jan. 12 in Stettler at the age of 84 years.

Evelyn grew up at Byemoor, one of ten children born to Emil and Pauline Kobi. Evelyn married Bob Walker of Endiang. They purchased the Crawford farm east of Byemoor where they raised four sons – Wes, Les, Clint and Lyle.

Evelyn was an active community member and even after retiring to Stettler still returned often for many Endmoor events.

Our thoughts are with Evelyn’s sons Wes (Robin) Walker, Les (Jill Hayden) Walker, Clint (Tammy) Walker and Lyle Walker and their families in their sad loss. Also, condolences to her brothers Bill (Theresa) Kobi and Gordon (Della) Kobi and her sister Mary (Lawrence) Wilkie as well as many other relatives and friends.

Evelyn will be long-remembered for her friendly personality and always having time for everyone for a visit.

Ron and Marguerite Brown have recently moved from their farm to the Paragon Place senior’s lodge in Stettler.

We hope the Browns are enjoying their new location.

Happy 75th Birthday wishes are sent to Wayne Nixon who celebrated his milestone birthday on Jan. 15 with best wishes for many more.

Folks are enjoying the much warmer temperatures, a welcome break from the long stretch of frigid weather we endured.

Happy 80th Birthday greetings are sent to Deanna Johnson who will be celebrating her special milestone on Jan. 26.

We hope you enjoy your special day, Deanna.
