Roy Sydney Oseen passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at the St. Michaels Health Center palliative care unit in the late afternoon of Sunday January 29th at the age of 81 years.
He leaves behind his beloved wife of 58 years Shirley Oseen. Roy married Shirley, daughter of Clarence and Helen Holthe of Turin, Alberta in June 1958 and began farming in the Sundial district until they moved to Lethbridge in 1995.
Roy will be greatly missed by his three children, Terry (Russ), Lana (Chris), and Jay (Melinda). Also left to cherish his memory are his grandchildren: Jonathan, Jillian, Liam, Caitlyn, and Hannah, his step-grandchildren Grace and Niko and his brother Brian(Lousie), as well as his numerous nieces and nephews.
Besides Shirley, the other love of his life was his beautiful acreage and garden on the Little Bow River that he established and cared for over the past fifteen years.
A private grave-side service will be held for immediate family. A come and go reception will be held between 2:00pm and 4:00pm on Friday, February 3, 2017 at the GERMAN CANADIAN CLUB, 902 6 St. North Lethbridge.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, #200, 2424 – 4th Street SW, Calgary, AB T2S 2T4.
A special thanks to the staff of St. Michaels for the wonderful care.
