Obituary for Rae Emma Little (Smart)

Rae Emma  Little (Smart)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mrs. Rae Emma Little at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre, Red Deer, Alberta on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at the age of 93 years. Rae was born in Shawville, Quebec on August 26, 1925. After graduating from Shawville High School, she taught school in Silver Creek, Ontario. In December 1943, she enlisted with the Royal Canadian Air Force as a clerk and accountant. Upon discharge in February 1945, Rae returned to Shawville, where she dated, and married, a young soldier named Clarence. Together, they farmed for forty years, with the help of their seven children, who loved growing up on the farm and each one has many happy memories. In 1975, Rae and Clarence sold their farm and moved to Fort McMurray, Alberta. There Rae worked at Alberta Motor Products and later Keyano College, until Clarence retired in 1985. They became snowbirds, spending winters in Port Charlotte, Florida, and summers in Fort McMurray. In 2004, they moved to Red Deer, Alberta. Mom was always busy; quilting, crocheting, sewing and kitting. Her specialties being socks, toques, afghans and wraps. Fiercely independent, she lived in her own home until the end. She lived life to the fullest. A special thank you to the doctors and staff of Unit 33 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre for their kindness and care shown to our mother. Rae will be deeply mourned by her children, Suzanne (Bob), Jane, Connie (Paul), Molly, Bob (Tuin), Nancy (Bob) and Richard (Lana). She will also be sadly remembered by her grandchildren, Annette (Scotty), Tammy (Barry), Rob (Jenny), Kelley (John), Kristy (Brian), Kathy (Scott), Greg (Christine), Jennifer, Craig, James (Andreea), Angela, Katie (Mark), Jesse, Sarah, Tracy, Jason, Brett (Denise) and Morgan (Riley). Rae was treasured by her great grandchildren, Paige, Faith, Deana, Teyah, Ella, Maggie, William, Callum, Sammy, Kenadee, Tira, Mia, Winston, Cordelia and Gyanda, sisters, Isobel (Gerald), Norma (Grant), her brother, Lyall (Loretta), sister in law Grace, brother in law Doug, and her dear friend Phyllis. Rae was predeceased by her husband, Clarence, parents, Irwin and Ethel, brother Allan and sister Betty. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 2:00p.m. at Parkland Funeral Home and Crematoium, 6287 – 67 A Street (Taylor Drive), Red Deer, Alberta. If desired, Memorial Donations in Rae’s honour my be made directly to the Heart and Stroke Foundation at or to the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #35, 2810 Bremner Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta or the Royal Canadian Legion of your choice.
