Daisy May Young of Fort Macleod, beloved wife of the late Mel Young, passed away peacefully Saturday, Oct. 31, five days before her 96th birthday.
Daisy is survived by her son Bruce (Pam) to whom she was devoted; two greatly loved granddaughters Cobi (Brad) Anderson and Cali Van Sluys; four light-of-her-life great granddaughters, Tayler and Gracyn Anderson and Breanne and Brynlee Van Sluys; her sister-in-law Rita Field, and numerous nieces and nephews and their families.
Besides her husband of 66 years, Daisy was predeceased by her parents Daisy and Charles Field and her brothers Charlie, Bill and Leonard (Skip) Field.
Daisy was born in Fort Macleod and lived there most of her life. For the past 13 years, Daisy called Macleod Pioneer Lodge home.
The piano played a huge part in Daisy’s life. She learned to play at an early age and gained renown as a player of popular tunes winning talent shows, and playing at dances.
Daisy loved to share her talent and willingly entertained whenever and wherever she was asked. She entertained for years at seniors’ residences throughout southern Alberta. There wasn’t a dance rhythm or a popular song that Daisy didn’t know or couldn’t play by ear after hearing a time or two.
Daisy also taught piano lessons, led a kindergarten class and sold furniture at Thornton’s Furniture Store. In her spare time, she was a devoted hockey wife, a member of a coffee klatch, supporter of Bruce’s and later Cobi and Cali’s activities, a member of the Hospital Auxiliary and was generally socially active. She had a special fondness for the 18th Street front step gang.
Daisy had a very generous spirit and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need — from stranded travelers to ailing friends and grateful family.
At Daisy’s request, there will be no funeral. A family graveside service will take place at a later date.
Flowers are gratefully declined but for those who wish, memorial donations may be made to the Willow Creek Foundation (Macleod Pioneer Lodge) Building Fund c/o P.O. Box 790, Fort Macleod, T0L 0Z0.
Funeral arrangements entrusted to Eden’s Funeral Home. Phone 403-553-3772 or visit www.edensfuneralhome.com.
