Hancock -- Freda Addison Hancock was born on September 6, 1927 at "Glenville", Bowness-on-Windermere among the mountains of the English Lake district. Tragically when Freda was six, her mother died from Tuberculosis and for the years following she was brought up by her father, (affectionately known as "Pop") and her rather stern paternal grandparents. At age eighteen she began nursing training at Barrow-in-Furness and at the same time by all accounts quite a social life. The social life and the nursing exams did not mix very well and following her failure in the exams she moved to The Victoria Hospital, Blackpool to start the course again. At Blackpool there must have been more application to her studies because she passed and won the prize for the best student! Midwifery training at Wyberton West Hospital, Boston in Lincolnshire followed and she moved back to Barrow taking a post as the Municipal Midwife in 1954.In April 1956 she was taken by the wanderlust and sailed from England for Fort William (Thunder Bay) Canada, to begin work at the McKellar Hospital. In Fort William she met Travers Hancock and shortly afterwards they set up home together and moved to Toronto. The now, Mrs. Hancock worked in The Doctors Hospital, Toronto, The Northwestern Hospital, Toronto and then the special baby unit in The Grace Hospital, where she worked for 12 years. During the holidays she and Travers toured round much of Canada and an extensive photographic collection of remote and wild places remains a testament to their adventurous spirit. During the late 1970Ős and 1980Ős Freda and Travers were seized by the wanderlust again and they made their way out to Western Canada and arrived in Carbon, Alberta via Calgary and Strathmore in 1984. In 1989 he was taken in to long term care in Drumheller and from then until her death on the 16th of August, 2000, Freda routinely visited him two or three times a week. She had always been an avid letter writer and she had kept all her correspondence since her arrival in Canada in 1956. Her large collection of books reflecting her interest in Canadian History, detective stories, gardening and wildlife she left to the Carbon Public Library.

Richardson -- Mom passed away November 15, 2001 with her family by her side, at the Drumheller Nursing Home. Our Mom, Doreen Richardson, was born in Iddesleigh, Alberta on the ninth of March, 1918, the third of six children born to Charles and Anna Lindholm. In 1922, after numerous crop failures, the Lindholm family moved to Wetaskiwin area. They established themselves on a new farm in the spring of 1923, 6 1/2 miles west of New Norway. This original farmstead is still in the Lindholm name and is being farmed by her youngest brother Ernest and his children. Mom received her elementary schooling, grades 1 - 8, at the Hoover School, just a few miles from their home. Grades 9 - 12 were received in New Norway. After graduating from high school, Doreen attended the Camrose Normal School where she received her teaching certificate. Her first teaching jobs were for the Wetaskiwin School District in several small country schools. It was while she was teaching at the Rose Brier school, that she met our father, George Richardson. Mom and Dad married on July 9, 1941 in Calgary. They moved to several small towns in Alberta where George was employed as a Grain Buyer. Their longest and last employment was at Delia where they resided for 35 years. Here they raised their 12 children, much to the "delight" of the Delia community. Mom taught junior high school and then settled in the Grade two room for ten years. Due to failing health, Mom and Dad moved to Drumheller in 1990. After Dad's passing, Mom moved to the Sunshine Lodge and then the Nursing Home where she spent the final years of her life. Mom's incredible love for children was evident throughout her life, as was shown in her professional as well as her personal life. With twelve children of her own, our home was always busy, but the door was always open for all of our "stray" friends. Her ability to overlook our many faults and imperfections was only surpassed by Dad's inability to overlook them. One of her most important roles, was playing the mediator in each and every family dispute, a full time job in itself. Even with the demands of a full time career and a family of this size, Mom still found the time to pursue other interests that were dear to her heart. Mom was an avid gardener with a passion for flowers. She took classes to learn how to oil paint, she was a top-notch seamstress and was an ardent book lover which gave her great enjoyment in her later years. Mom was actively involved in the Ladies Auxiliary to the Legion, the United Church Women and was a very devoted member of the Order of Eastern Star. Mom was predeceased by her husband George in 1992; her parents, Charles and Anna Lindholm; her siblings, Alfhild, Evert, Lennart and his wife Margeurite, and Linnea and her husband Clarence. She is survived by her loving brother Ernest and wife Kay of New Norway; a sister-in-law Betty of Dewinton; and numerous nieces and nephews. She leaves to mourn her passing her 12 children, Ann (Bob) Millar of Toronto, Karen Snodgrass of High River, Rosalyn Richardson of Calgary, Brian (Wendy) of Munson, Nigel (Merridell) of Singapore, Marie (Glenn) Kelm of Leduc, Linda (Van) Reed of Delia, Wendy (Dale) Smigelski of Stony Plain, Wade (Bonnie) of Hanna, Harley (Vicki) of High River, Bradley (Karen) of Hanna, and Valerie (Tyler) James of Drumheller.
