Marie “Louise” Groves

September 7th, 1924 – March 18th, 2008

We are saddened by the loss of our Mom, Marie “Louise” Groves. She will be greatly missed us her children, Ian (Debora) Groves of Trinity Valley, B.C. and Karen (Wayne) Blanchard; her grandchildren, Dennis, Isobel and Amanda Blanchard, all of Edmonton, Alberta; two brothers, Ernie (Rona) Collette of Stony Plain, Alberta and Frank Collette of Wetaskiwin, Alberta and many other dear family members and friends. Louise was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas A. Groves and her sister, Isobel Bailey.

Louise leaves behind hearts touched in grandchildren, family and friends. Everyone who knew her loved her sharp wit and wickedly funny sense of humour. She was always ready with a grin and a great story. Louise had a big, wonderful heart that not only held dear family and friends but many charities as well. A great lover of animals and nature and a wealth of knowledge on many subjects, Louise was truly a fascinating person.

Cremation preceded a Celebration Of Louise’s Life which will be held at a later date in Alberta. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Louise to the charity of their choice.

Cremation arrangements were made with
