It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Gloria Whitelock on March 28, 2015 at the age of 75 years.
Gloria was born December 11, 1939 to parents Alida and Floyd Booth in Rimbey, Alberta joining her siblings Delores, Floyd, Opal, Joyce and Jim. Earl and Bernard followed.
Gloria married Allen Whitelock on Jan 31, 1958. They made their first home on the Whitelock farmstead in Alsike. Later they settled in Rimbey where they were blessed with their children. Gloria and Allen lived in many different locations in Alberta finally settling in the Rocky Mountain House area.
She is survived by her husband Allen; children Kim (Kyla) of Leslieville, Kenny (Linda) of Ponoka and Linda (Dale) Howes of Rocky; grandchildren Dawson Howes, Travis (Calyshia) Howes, Sara and Jessica Whitelock; great grandchild Wyatt Howes; step grandchildren Carey Keil, Chris (Tegan) Keil, and Curtis (Janice) Keil and their families. She will also be missed by her brothers Earl (Gail) Booth and Bernard (Grace) Booth all of Rimbey, numerous nieces and nephews and their families, and her Whitelock and Gerwien brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law and their families.
Known for her always positive attitude, Gloria’s passion was her family, cooking and baking for all to enjoy. She loved to paint beautiful pictures and loved her flowers and garden. She also loved the animals and felt the place was never complete without them. She loved her many lifetime friends that enriched her life. The coffee was always on.
A celebration of Gloria’s life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, Rocky Mountain House on Saturday April 11, 2015 at 2 p.m. Cremation has been entrusted to the Rocky Mountain Crematorium, Rocky Mountain House.
For those wishing to make a memorial contribution in Gloria’s name, the family decided on the Good Samaritan Society in Rocky Mountain House and the Canadian Cancer Society.
