Carolyn Faye Wilderman
September 1, 1942 - November 10, 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Carolyn Faye Wilderman on Monday,m November 10, 2014 at Biggar Hospital, Biggar, Sask. at the age of 72 years.
Carolyn is survived by her siblings, Judith (Stewart) Valcourt of Chiliwack, B.C., Gerald (Darlene) Wilderman of Saskatoon, Sask., and Donna (Dan) Meek of Barriere, B.C.; numerous nieces and nephews and extended family. She was predeceased by her father, Leo (1985); and mother, Doris (2013).
Carolyn was born in St. Margaret's Hospital in Biggar in 1942. She lived on a farm north of Biggar with her family, until they moved into the Town of Biggar in 1972. Carolyn enjoyed camping and travelling to the United States for a few years. She enjoyed embroidering, cross-stitching, and took great pride in all her work. She had some award winning projects. After her father, Leo, passed away, Carolyn lived with her mother in Biggar, later moving into her own apartment in the seniors complex. She later moved into the Diamond Lodge in Biggar, where she spent the remainder of her life.
"We did not know that morning, God was to call your name.
He saw that you were getting tired and put His arms around you and whispered, "Come with Me."
You did not go alone, for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home."
The family would like to thank the staff at Biggar Hospital, as well as the staff in the Diamond Lodge for their compassionate care.
Grondin Funeral Services, Biggar entrusted with arrangements, "Our family serving your family since 1963".

HEATHER, Carol: June 6, 1942 - November 23, 2013
Whispers from Heaven
When I left this world without you
I know it made you blue.
Your tears fell so freely,
I watched; I know this is true.
While you were weeping,
Days after I passed away.
While all was silent within me,
I saw you kneel to pray.
From this wonderful place called Heaven
Where all my pain is gone,
I send a gentle breeze to whisper,
"My loved ones, please go on".
The peace that I have found here
Goes far beyond compare
No rain, no clouds, no suffering--
Just LOVE from everywhere.
You need not be troubled
Just stay close to GOD in prayer
Someday we'll be reunited
My love, HIS love surrounds you always,
…Till we meet again, Lovingly remembered and always missed, Ron, Sharalee, Danny, Brad and families

ZIPCHEN, Irene Helen: October 5, 1933 - November 21, 2013
"Time has a way of slipping by,
but love and memories never die.
Gone are the days we used to share,
but in our hearts you are always there."
Deeply missed and lovingly remembered, Pat, Cheryl and Neal; Murray and Charlene, Tegan; Tanner and Kelsey
