July 1, 1944 - July 4, 2021
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our Mom.
She was born in Stettler, Alberta on July 1,1944 then passed away at home July 04, 2021.
Mom was raised by her father Alvin Nighswander and stepmother Rita.
She later in life married Leslie Gross and the had 6 children; Brent (Abby), Brenda, Bonnie (Bruce), Bobby (Anna-Marie) and Jeff. They also had a daughter Laura who passed away in 1977. Mom leaves behind several grandkids and great grandkids.
She worked at a few different jobs in her career. She worked at the Napier Theatre, the Travel Lodge and finally at Super 8 where she retired.
We will remember her in healthier times. We will miss her laughter and our many visits at the table playing scrabble and drinking green tea. She was a great cook. We all knew that 5:00 sharp was supper time. Sunday supper was the meal nobody missed growing up.
She loved when the grandkids came to visit. Her house was always busy with kids coming and going. She loved collecting angels, candles and had many plants. She definitely had a green thumb.
Mom had a few extra special friends who were so good to her; Penny, Elaine and Angela.
A special thanks to Jeff and his friend Katherine for taking such good care of Mom in her failing years and making sure she was okay.
Rest in Peace Mom. We love you and will miss you dearly
