With overwhelming heartache and sorrow, we announce the death of Raven Leigh Regimbal-Garlock. Raven died suddenly at the University Hospital in Edmonton, AB on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at the age of 25.
Raven is lovingly survived by her precious daughter Mikaela Garlock; parents Christy Williamson-Regimbal and Ray Regimbal; sisters Jessalyn, Brittani, and Brooklyn; grandparents Dennis & Julie, Roland & Mable, Sharon, Pat, and Linda; aunts and uncles: Cari (Erik), Jason (April), Jon, Renee (Claude), Richard (Rosita), and Ryan (Angela), and her best friend and partner, Aaron Rowlinson as well as many cousins, extended family members and wonderful friends. She was predeceased by her birth mother, Robin Ann Ford.
Born in Dawson Creek, BC on April 8, 1991, Raven moved to Fernie with her parents in 1997. In 2009 she graduated from Fernie Secondary and went on to pursue her degree in Business Administration, and just recently, had been accepted into the Care Aid program.
When diagnosed with heart problems discovered during her pregnancy, Raven, with her “tough-as-nails” attitude and determination, confronted her life’s challenges head on and persevered in true Raven style. Though petite in stature, Raven was a force to be reckoned with! “And though she be but little, she is fierce!”
Raven embraced life! She loved anything outdoors; hunting, bow shoots with Mikaela and quad rides, but she especially enjoyed mud bogging! Quality time spent with family and friends was always a priority in her life.
Above all else, Raven was a loving and attentive mother to Mikaela. Together they spent evenings snuggling in their pj’s, watching their favorite movies. She was also a very proud dance mom, attending every recital. Mikaela’s greatest cheerleader, Raven encouraged, supported and loved her daughter with her whole being.
Raven will be forever remembered for her zest for life, her beautiful, sparkling blue eyes, and her radiant smile.
“In the midst of Winter I found there was within me an invincible Summer”.
