AMY MARGARET LUMSDEN:
Aug. 8, 1916 – Sept. 3, 2013
Our family is saddened with the passing of our dear mom, Amy. Her long journey has ended here on earth and now she is in God’s hands and at peace.
Amy was the daughter of Mary and Mervyn Evans of Minnedosa, MB, and grew up on the Evans family farm in the Cameron District. In 1936 Amy married Max Lumsden, farming for 19 years until moving to Brandon, MB. Amy graduated as a Licensed Practical Nurse in 1968, nursing in Brandon until her retirement in 1981. Retirement brought Amy and Max to Lethbridge, AB in 1982 where Amy remained until Max’s death in 2005 when she relocated to Sparwood, BC. In 2008 Amy became a resident of the Rocky Mountain Village in Fernie, BC where she resided until her death.
Amy leaves to mourn her sons Keith (Linda), Bill (Barb), and Rob (Heather) and her daughter Sheila (John) Heide. Mom was blessed with 10 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her infant son John born in 1938, her husband in 2005, and her daughter Mary in 2011.
Internment will take place in the family plot at the Minnedosa Cemetery.
Special thanks to the staff of Lilac Terrace and Rocky Mountain Village for the years of good care and friendship to Amy.
