Kathi FARQUHAR

FARQUHAR Kathi – beloved mother, grandmother and sister, of Lethbridge, passed away at the St. Michael’s Palliative Care Centre on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at the age of 60 years. She is the loving mother of John Farquhar, Angel Farquhar, and Jesse Farquhar. The grandmother to Brandon Farquhar and Kristen Farquhar; sister to Wayne (Arlene) Wiebe, Vic (Eren) Wiebe, Valerie (Kip) Miller, Larry Wiebe, Sheila (Bob Setoguchi) Wiebe, Duane “Jeff” (Jeannie) Wiebe and Bryan (Laurie Smith) Wiebe. She is also survived by her uncle Len (Jessie Ann) Gamble, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and many great friends. She was predeceased by her father Victor Wiebe, her mother Freda Wiebe, her son Jason Farquhar and her grandson Roger. Kathi was born in Chilliwack, BC, on November 4, 1951 to Vic and Freda Wiebe. She was raised on a dairy farm in the Fraser Valley, BC where she resided until the early 90’s raising her family, and spent many happy hours coaching her children’s softball teams, eventually earning umpire credentials. She resided in Fort St. John for eight years, eventually deciding to settle in Lethbridge, AB. She graduated with honors from Lethbridge College’s Child and Youth Care Diploma program and had a positive impact on the young people and co-workers she worked with at McMan Youth Services. Her love of diamonds and for meeting people led her to successful employment as the manager of several jewelry stores, most recently Charm Diamond Centers. She took pride in achieving many commendations and excellence awards for sales and customer service, but more valuable to her were the friends she made in co-workers and repeat customers. Her other passions included Elvis, photography, gardening, spending time with her family and friends, the Atlanta Braves, collecting Coke memorabilia and cows, which reminded her of her childhood on the farm. Kathi maintained a cheerful and positive attitude for others no matter what her personal circumstances were, and her strong Christian faith gave her the determination to endure any hardships that came her way and to carry on with renewed faith that rarely faltered. She was unique, generous and kind and had a way of leaving a lasting impression on all who met her. She will be sadly missed so very much. A Service of Remembrance will be held at SEVENOAKS ALLIANCE CHURCH (Community Room), 2575 Gladwin Road, Abbotsford, on Saturday, March 17 at 1:00 p.m. with Pastor Ed Wiebe officiating. In memory of Kathi, donations may be made to the Jack Ady Cancer Society, 2A #101, 960-19 St. South, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 1W5 or to the St. Michael’s Palliative Care Centre, 1400-9 Ave. South, Lethbridge, AB T1J 4V5
