Grandchildren, Karli (Justin) Barsness, Taya (Dustin) O’Donnell, Chad (Rebecca) Keujer, Lexie, Chayne and Lawson Kinniburgh, and Bailey and Taylor Kinniburgh. And 4 great grandchildren, Hunter and Kenley Barsness and Jasper and Kessler O’Donnell. She is also survived by her sister, Kathleen (Leonard) Sanderson and many other family members. She was predeceased by her parents Albert and Edna Jones, and her brother Neil Jones.
Daisy was born June 16, 1948, in Medicine Hat. She grew up in Grassy Lake helping her parents run the family store. Her love of all animals was the reason she was drawn to country life. No matter whether she was in town, on the farm or on an acreage, horses always had a special place in her heart.
She met Fred in 1965 and started their family shortly there after then moved to Lethbridge. Mom spent many years holding down the fort and running kids to sporting events, 4-H, school and many other activities, while Dad was busy keeping the power on to keep the Pepsi cold in the fridge. It didn’t matter if it was for her kids, grandkids, or even great grand kids, she always loved tagging along to any activity or event. Mom LOVED to travel, and when she wasn’t doing that, golf, cards, bowling, or any other hobbies, that got her out of the house was enjoyed.
A private service will be held for Mom, followed by a reception where family and friends are invited to gather for Daisy’s final sip. In Lieu of flowers, if you so desire, donations can be made to Epilepsy Canada.
Come share one last Pepsi for Daisy with us at the Italian Canadian Club on Thursday April 6, 2:00 - 4:00pm at. 1511 St. Edward Blvd N. Lethbridge, Ab
