REED, George Armstrong

George Armstrong Reed - July 19, 1928 – 2014~On Monday, February 24, 2014 'Papa' George slipped into the tender arms of his heavenly Father, after cheerfully dealing, for an extended time, with cancer and dementia. We have the firm hope that we will see him wholly restored in heaven. Born on July 19, 1928, he began his life on a farm on the Ghost Pine Creek southeast of Three Hills, as one of 12 children of Francis and Ella Reed. He attended Sarcee Butte before enrolling at Prairie High School. As a young man he sold popcorn and Christmas cards in the fall, as he rode his horse Shorty around the community. His love of nature and the outdoors began in the Carbon-Ghost Pine Boy Scouts with gifted Welshman Isaacs, and later he led his own Lone Scouts troop. After high school he worked as a bookkeeper for a coal mine south of Three Hills, at a garage in Innisfail, and on the farm for Ray and Margaret Dau before beginning a job as office administrator and bookkeeper at Kirk's Furnaces. In 1949 he married his sweetheart Ruby Ruggles of Turner Valley and they would have celebrated their 65th anniversary this year. He opened Laurel Agencies on Main Street, Three Hills, where he offered accounting, insurance, and real estate services. He was a master of mimicry and in his retirement years he entertained children and seniors with a short program of animal sounds and bird calls. He took pleasure in sharing hikes along Bay Coulee with students, teachers, family, and friends. Chickadees , nuthatches, and squirrels would come to his hand to eat seeds. He loved to sing praises to His Lord. George was predeceased by his parents, Ella and Francis, his sister Iris, his brothers Lawrence and Kenneth, and his daughter Judy (Martin). He leaves to mourn his passing, his dear wife Ruby; his children Terry (Val), Joy (Rod), Laurel (Terry), and Kevin (Yvonne); his grandchildren Erin (Russell and family), Tiffany (Christopher and family), and Jordan (Tara); Remington (Dory and family) and Quinton; Dean (Christie) and Dale; Lauren; Christie (Mthoko and family), Andrew (Crystal), Ethan (Megan), and Kathy; his brothers Leslie and Hugh; and his sisters Eleanor, Kathleen, Lois, June, Grace, and Lorraine. We would like to sincerely thank Dr. Reedyk and Dr. Savage and the extended care staff for the tender loving care that was given to our Papa George these last months. A Memorial Service will be held at the Bethel Evangelical Missionary Church (123 - 4th Avenue South) in Three Hills, AB on Thursday March 6, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. with Harold Hunter officiating. A private committal service will be held at a later date for the family.
