when we were in high school she found out she had lymphoma.. it was so shocking and scary. But Liz took it in stride valiantly and was an amazing person throughout the years she survived with the illness. Still loved to laugh. Put up an amazing fight. She was never bitter or angry... a mensch.

There were sororities and frats at Wisewood where the cool kids joined.. we were never 'rushed' but we formed The Rejects in response and when sororities rushed with their posters promoting themselves we put up Rejects posters that said: Rejects: Acne. Obesity. Chastity. and then we laughed some more.

JOHNSTONE, Dennis Nicholson died on March 19, 2011 at the age 60. Born in Calgary on August 27, 1950, ""DJ"" never had the desire to live anywhere else. As a young man, he was crazy about the mountains - the hiking trails gave him new challenges to conquer and the beauty of his surroundings gave him a sense of peace. When he was a member of the Calgary Ski Club, DJ meticulously planned each hike and camping trip he led. This same attention to detail, a dedicated work ethic, a strong sense of competitiveness and an agile, analytic mind made him one of the top medical students at the University of Calgary and an award-winning pharmaceutical rep. To DJ, hospitals were places of hope, and for many years, you could see his smiling face as a volunteer in one of the gift shops at the Peter Lougheed Centre. DJ was a fiercely loyal, honest, compassionate, charming and generous friend. He made an indelible mark on the lives of those who knew him with his sage guidance, his off-the-wall imagination and sense of humour. An avid movie buff, he frequently escaped to dinner and the movies with his friends. He loved his friends and his ""kids."" Happy trails DJ. We love you too.

Spiritual and a believer in God, Lucy Anne charted her own faith journey, relying on her angels to guide her. She knew where she was going.

To all of Jim's classmates, I hope you have a wonderful gathering with both rekindled and new friendships. I wish Jim could have joined you for the celebrations. Jim spoke fondly of his high school football days (#68 Warriors). He kept a few mementoes including a copy of the 1966 Calgary senior high school football program.

If you remember Jim, please do drop me a line, I would love to hear any memories you might recall. Warm regards from his wife, Karin
James (Jim) Malcolm Martin October 28, 1949 - July 22, 2016 An inspiring, visionary leader has suddenly left this world to explore others. James (Jim) Malcolm Martin passed away peacefully in Victoria, BC on July 22, 2016 at age 66 from pancreatic cancer. A proud grandson of southern Alberta pioneers, Jim was born in Calgary on October 28, 1949. He was destined for a life in education, becoming one of Alberta's own pioneers in environmental education. Jim was first inspired by nature through childhood curiosity, exploring rivers and streams. These experiences grew into a passion for the environment. He graduated from Henry Wise Wood HS (Calgary), then earned his Bachelor of Arts (University of Calgary) and Master of Science in Education (Northern Illinois University). Jim spent over 40 years as an educator, helping people understand important connections between society, environment and the economy. Over his career, Jim presented to tens of thousands of learners. One of his favourite times was spent building canoes with First Nations students in northern Alberta, then paddling these canoes on lakes and rivers to share the natural world and how humans interacted with it. Jim helped found and lead several nonprofit education organizations, most notably Friends of Environmental Education Society of Alberta (FEESA), now Inside Education. His vision was to provide bias-balanced natural resources education to Alberta schools. In 2011, Jim was honoured with an Alberta Emerald Award for individual commitment. In his private life, Jim was a quiet naturalist who loved bird-watching, hiking, mystery novels, football, cooking, walks by the sea with his pup Sieva, and travels abroad. Some of his fondest journeys were to Crete, Vimy Ridge and Paris. He was a passionate conversationalist, friend and mentor who left a tremendous impact on our lives and hearts. Jim will be deeply missed by his wife Karin Hedetniemi; brother John Martin; sister Diane (Jim) Bailey; daughter Lisa (Dale) Keller; lifelong friends Brian (Anne Marie) Ogston, Steve McIsaac; and many more family, friends and colleagues. Perhaps in the great beyond, Jim is reunited with parents Don and Mabelle; brothers Donald and Bill; and previous wife Wendy Gow. Jim supported many charities close to his heart. If so desired, donations may be made to InsideEducation.ca, Jim Martin Legacy Program, to benefit more young learners. More than this, Jim would encourage you to introduce a child to something new in nature, to spark awareness and help build their understanding of the world we live in.
Jim was sort of a gentle giant. He could realy fire the shot put and the discus. He was also a great sprinter. He had asthma so long distance was not possible. Not sure, but I think he went to Milton Williams Junior.

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Jackie Saltman who died suddenly at the age of 69. Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Jackie lived much of her life in Los Angeles, where she reveled in the fact that she could always wear sandals and need never put on a winter coat again. Jackie caught the travel bug when she worked as an Air Canada agent while in university and went on to work as a successful travel agent serving a loyal clientele for many years. Jackie lived her life on her terms. She traveled the world, had a great sense of humour, unashamedly ate her unique diet, enjoyed a good bet, and cherished her good friends. Jackie was predeceased by her parents, Leah and Sherwood Saltman and will be missed by all who loved her. A funeral service was held in Calgary, Alberta on Tuesday, December 31, where Jackie was laid to rest in the Chevra Kadisha Cemetery. Those wishing to honour her memory may make a donation to a food bank or humane society, as those were causes Jackie supported, or to any charity of your choice. May her memory be a blessing for all who knew and appreciated Jackie Saltman.
STEWART QC, Charles R. (Charlie)
January 25, 1950 - December 14, 2012
Charlie Stewart beloved husband of Christine of Calgary, passed away on Friday, December 14, 2012 at the age of 62 years. With sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of Charlie after a year and a half courageous battle with cancer. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Charlie came to Calgary to settle in the 'new' community of Meadowlark Park. After a childhood and adolescence filled with mischievous fun, Charlie attended the University of Alberta, graduating in 1975 with a law degree. He proceeded to London, England, earning a Masters of Law from the London School of Economics. During this time and for many years after, Charlie's sense of adventure saw him explore countries far and wide, including Ecuador, Kenya, Nicaragua, and most of Europe. He was a natural athlete; skier, mountain climber, and cyclist. Despite the nickname 'Vacation Stewart', amusingly conferred upon him by several justices, Charlie was passionate about his career as a criminal defense lawyer. He was the ultimate barrister taking on unpopular causes in the fight for justice. He was diligent, hard- working and all of his clients knew it and felt confident with Charlie as their counsel. He was a force in the court room and commanded the respect of all other parties and the judiciary. He always maintained excellent relationships not only with opposing counsel, but with the police, investigators and witnesses. Charlie was a mentor to many young lawyers and a teacher to police agencies. Charlie was devoted to his family. He will be lovingly remembered and missed by his wife Christine, daughters Emilie and Brigitte, sister Elaine (Cal) Todd, sister-in-law, Elizabeth Sazie (Ken Brown), mother-in-law, Marie Sazie and nephews Timothy, Nathaniel and William. Charlie is predeceased by his mother Isabel, father Crawford and father-in-law Jack Sazie. Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY'S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Friday, January 4, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers and because of Charlie's love for western art and the beauty of Southern Alberta, donations may be forwarded to the Leighton Art Centre at www.leightoncentre.org and click on the 'support' link or mail to Leighton Centre, Box 9 Site 31, RR 8 Calgary, AB T2J 2T9. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to the staff at Agape Hospice for the compassionate care given to Charlie. In living memory of Charlie Stewart, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park
TIBBLE, Terry Douglas
July 18, 1950 - May 6, 2013
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our brother Terry, from complications due to liver disease. The most important things in his life were his family, his bikes and time spent in the mountains. He was an avid outdoorsman and was happiest biking, hiking and cross country skiing. He was a member of the Elbow Valley Cycling Club and had many memorable biking trips including Italy and New Zealand. He worked in the oil patch for all of his career lately with Devon Canada - a company the family is grateful to for their support and understanding over the past couple of years. Terry was an off the wall wit who was always ready with a one-liner. He was a devoted brother and generous uncle who never forgot a birthday or anniversary. He is survived by his brother David Tibble (Alison) and sister Barbara Lamoureux; nieces and nephews, Erin, Corey (Kim), Heather (John), Kent (Jacqueline), Brett (Crystal) and great-nieces and nephew Aiden, Makenna, Macie, Kyra, Mary and Sarah. He was predeceased by his parents Mary and Frank Tibble. We would like to thank the staff of Unit 94 at the Rockyview Hospital for their expert care of Terry and the staff at Southwood Hospice for their care and compassion of both Terry and the family. Family and friends are invited to the home of his sister for an open house on Saturday, May 11, 2013. Please drop by anytime between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. when we can share stories of Terry and raise a glass. Address is 1403 - 89 Avenue S.W. All are welcome. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations would be appreciated to the Canadian Liver Foundation. In living memory of Terry Tibble, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park.
TIDSBURY, Kenneth G.
April 14, 1937 - June 10, 2017
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Ken Tidsbury on June 10, 2017. He is survived by his wife, Dani; and his daughter, Brenda McLean, and her husband, Scott; and grandchildren, Jordan, Tait, Kyle and Ty. He was predeceased by his beloved daughters, Terri Jo and Jodi; his parents, Margaret and George Tidsbury; and his brother, Bob. Ken was born on April 14, 1937 and raised in Calgary. He attended Balmoral School and Crescent Heights High School. He was a lifetime athlete, and played hockey and football in Calgary. He cherished the summers that he spent on his aunt and uncle's farm in Manitoba. The family moved to Saskatoon when he was sixteen. He attended City Park High School and captained the Hilltops football team. He received his Bachelor of Education from the University of Saskatchewan where he played football for the university football team, the Huskies. During his life he played a variety of sports, including tennis and golf. He obtained his Masters of Education from Oregon, and returned to Calgary to teach at Henry Wisewood High School. He moved to SAIT as Athletic Director. He was instrumental in the creation and design of the SAIT Campus Centre; and was the Director of Student Services for a number of years before his retirement. A lifetime pleasure for him were the times that he spent at the cottage at Waskesiu Lake, Saskatchewan, beginning as a life guard in 1958. His love of that area never wavered. In later years, he also enjoyed the family cottage at Fairmont, BC. His grandchildren are especially grateful for the time together in both places as he taught them many life lessons, most importantly to keep life simple, fish, golf and cherish the sunsets. Throughout his years in Calgary, he spent many enjoyable hours at the Calgary Winter Club participating in a variety of activities. His passion was working out in the gym; he could be found lifting weights even in his final days. Ken made a significant contribution to education in Calgary. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Calgary Winter Club (4611 – 14 Street NW) on Friday, June 16, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Ken's family at www.evanjstrong.com.
