1921 – 2016

Mom was born on the homestead in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan on November 12, 1921. She passed away peacefully in the Red Deer Hospital on February 27, 2016 at the age of 94. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Edwin; daughter-in-law Lynn; brothers Michel and Hubert; sisters Genevieve and Edith; and nephew Richard. She is survived by her sisters Denise of Chicago, Illinios and Gabrielle of Waco, Texas; daughters Camillia Torney (Ralph) and Edwina Guenette; son Cameron Cuthill (Judy); grandchildren Jeannine Guenette, Virgil Dixon (Michelle), Justin Dixon, Sheldon Cuthill and David Cuthill (Amber); four great granddaughters Rayna, Chelsey, Shannon, and Emma; one great grandson Brody; as well as many nieces and nephews, all of whom she loved dearly. Odile was a Veteran who proudly served in the Second World War, initially in Algiers, then France and finally Germany in Field Hospital 425. After the War she returned to Canada where she met and married the love of her life, Edwin, whom she had met through her brother Hubert. Edwin and Hubert were both Veterans who had fought side by side through Europe and became best friends. Mom and Dad had a wonderful life together raising three children and had a lot of fun on the way. She loved to bake, sew, and knit, but her main love was keeping up with the world’s current affairs; always following the news. She was totally enjoying all the “entertainment” of the current US election. The family wishes to say thank you so much to: Nancy, who was so very good to Mom over the years and was so much help and support to mom, Ralph and Camillia; it meant so much. To Nettie, who took the bus many times to visit with Mom in the hospital; she so enjoyed it. To Toni, for coming up and cutting and doing Moms’ hair in the hospital; she felt so much better. To Harry, for all the help you gave us at Moms’ condo building. To Doctor Hopfner, a very special thank you for the excellent care and concern he always showed toward her; it was so much appreciated. To Doctor McCall, for successfully getting Mom through her surgery. To the nurses in ICU who cared for her, and to the incredible, warm, and caring nursing staff of Unit 23, whom Mom called her “Angels”. In lieu of flowers Mom has requested that if anyone wishes, they make a donation to the charity of their choice. A celebration of life will follow at a later date in Red Deer, after which Mom will be laid to rest next to Dad in Foam Lake, Saskatchewan.
