MALONEY, William (Bill)
June 4, 1928 — July 15, 2012
Bill passed away on July 15, 2012 at the cabin at Pigeon Lake. His health had declined in recent months and the family is happy that he was able to leave this world from his favorite spot. Bill began his life in Mossbank, Saskatchewan. After working at jobs that took him as far away as Texas (threshing crew) and Sudbury (nickel mines), he left for the oilfields of Alberta in 1950. Bill married Joyce Anderson in New Norway, Alberta in 1951 and they made their home at many small communities throughout Alberta, before settling in Leduc in 1953. Bill and Joyce moved to Edmonton in 1966. Bill worked for Cascade Drilling for many years and later
at Panarctic Personnel before starting his own company Ardill Personnel, which provided staff for oil exploration in the high Arctic. He was a benefactor and mentor to many of the rig staff over the years and many lasting friendships developed as a result of
his career in the oilpatch.
Bill was predeceased by his son Larry in 2006. Bill has left behind a large family who will miss him dearly. His wife of 61 years, Joyce, daughter Shannon (Scott) Savage, daughter Maureen (Albert) Woolley, son Lynn (Cheryl) Maloney, daughter-in-law Pam (Larry) Maloney; seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Bill is survived by his sister Mearle Smith and family, as well as his brothers, Albert Maloney and Mervyn Maloney and many nieces and nephews.

It is with heavy hearts we mark the peaceful passing of mother, gramma, sister, and friend from this world to the next. Irene Wiens (née Dueck) was born 9 May 1933 in Gem, Alberta, and died 12 July 2012 in Edmonton.

Her husband John, daughter Edie, parents Nick and Anne, brother Herman, and sister Edna predeceased Irene.
Irene’s life was characterized by deep faith in God, gratitude, and her favourite question: “What can I do to help?” Even as dementia advanced, Irene found things to be thankful for, things to enjoy, and occasions to be helpful. She loved music, often harmonizing along with recordings, and sometimes performances. From her core she was grateful and positive and encouraged those around her. On her 79th birthday, in hospital with a broken hip, she celebrated surrounded by family and commented: “It doesn’t get better than this!” We continue to learn from her legacy of thankfulness and a life of loving others.
There will be a viewing on Sunday, 22 July 2012 at 7:00 to 8:00 p.m., with family in attendance, at Serenity Funeral Service (5311–91 Street, Edmonton). We will celebrate her life and mourn her passing with a memorial service Monday 23 July 2012 at 1:30 p.m., at Lendrum Mennonite Brethren Church (11210–59 Avenue, Edmonton), followed by interment at Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
