Memorial
Lois passed away peacefully Nov. 24, 2009 in Calgary at the age of 77. Lois was one of 5 children of Rev. & Mrs. Hugh McVety (Ruth Gulbransen). She will be sadly missed by her sons, Garry Reimer (Leigh), Clyde Reimer and daughter, Nancy St. Aubin (Bill) but we look forward to seeing her anew in heaven with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Lois leaves behind 4 grandchildren (Amanda, Joe, Daniel and Natasha), 4 great grandchildren, her brothers, Dr. Kenneth McVety and Rev. Albert McVety as well as many relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her brother, Dr. Elmer McVety and sister, Jean Rempel. A family memorial is planned for 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 7, 2010 at Stanley Park in Vancouver, B.C.

This site is still under construction and will remain that way as long as friends and family wish to add to it. Please check back regularly to see what photos and comments others have added.

Please feel free to add your own memorable stories and photos of Lois for everyone to enjoy and don't forget to sign the guest book. I know it isn't always easy to think of what to say; just signing it says a lot.

Also, please don't worry about sending flowers, especially as there is no formal service planned, but if you are so inclined you can check out the "Donate" tab for some great opportunities relating to Clyde and Natasha in honour of Mom.

Thank you!

Hi all, Not sure who if anyone will read this but just wanted to say a few words. Some of you may or may not know that Mom donated her body to science. This was something that Mom had wanted to do for a very long time. I believe that it was something she wanted to do because she had several illnesses/conditions that she hoped that perhaps donating her body would help others. Mom's body was at the U of C for almost 6 years now and because they have finished learning/teaching whatever they could with her body the time has come to lay her ashes to rest. I will be doing this tomorrow(Sept.24th) along with all the other families of others who also donated their bodies. When Mom and I moved to Calgary way back in 1972 we found a great pizza place near the apartment we lived in called Tom's House of Pizza on MacLeod Trail. We went there often and shared an amazing pizza with Italian Sausage, Mushroom and Black Olives(if you ever are in the area try it, it's really tasty). Anyways in honor of Mom I will be having lunch there tomorrow before heading to the memorial service which will give me time to reflect. Mom and I had a life of ups and downs together and I'm hoping that doing this I will finally have complete closer. Take Care All and God Bless!!

Garry I am really late in responding but I just received your wonderful memorial. I remember Lois very well since we all grew up together in Regina. Our families spent many Christmas dinners etc. together. She had a beautiful singing voice and an infectious laugh. It is sad that our families lost contact over the years. Perhaps your Memorial will help re-establish communication and bring back some of the warm, wonderful memories we all share.

Hi Gary, this is a little late getting to you as I had just found out recently the sad news about Lois' passing. Even though I new your Mom we never realy kept in touch, but I did think of her often and of course wondered how you and your family were doing, and what you up to these days. I hope to get to Van for your Mom's memorial, I'll try hard. I always remember Lois as a very nice lady. I knew her mostly during my times in Calgary, very nice memories for sure. Hope to see everyone in Aug. All my best wishes ...Cousin Larry
