In Loving Memory Of

Russell Ames


Russell Fred Ames, born May 17, 1928 in Bezanson, AB, passed away surrounded by family on Saturday, November 14, 2015 at the QEII Hospital, at the age of 87 years.

Russell enjoyed life, was a man of great work ethic, and was blessed with many talents. He and Joan loved to dance and have several medals won at various Provincial Seniors Games.

We will remember him when we hear some beloved dance music, or in the fall when the crops in the fields are ripe for harvest, or see a shiny red GMC pick-up truck. We will remember and love you forever.

Russell will be greatly missed by his wife of 67 years Joan, son Danny (Donna), daughter Terry (Roland) LaCroix; grandchildren: Tammy (Wayne), Darcy (Shelley), Renee (Darryl), Holly (Brady) and Jennifer. His 13 great-grandchildren: Kalyssa, Naomi, Braeden, Tristan, Josie, Reid, Brinley, Trey, Quinn, Cohan, Chloe, Alexa and Lily were a source of great pride and joy. Russell is also survived by his sisters Edith (Milfred), Fern (Ron), and Ruby; sisters in-law Betty and Jean, brother in-law Allan, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents Fred and Edna Ames, parents in-law Ira and Nellie McLaughlin, as well as many brothers in-law and sisters in-law.

An informal Open House Memorial Tea will be held on Friday, November 20, 2015 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm at the Golden Age Centre in Grande Prairie (10222 101 Ave.) Cremation has taken place, and a private family burial will take place at a later date.

Memorial Donations may be made to the Grande Prairie Golden Age Centre (10222 101 Ave, Grande Prairie, AB, T8V 0Y5) or to a local charity of one's choice.

In Loving Memory of

Russell Ames
