"INE" 2007 Obituary


INÉS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-11-28 published
GALBRAITH, Clarretta " Tom"
Clarretta 101, died customary Harmony on Friday, 'Tom' GALBRAITH, quietly, and with her grace and dignity, at Homes in Red Deer November 23. The youngest of three sisters, Clarretta was born in Lion's Head, Ontario, on May 2, 1906, and raised in Regina and Edmonton. She graduated from the Royal Alexandra Hospital as a Registered Nurse in 1929, working first as a public health nurse with the Travelling Clinic in Northern Alberta and later at the Olds Agricultural College. She moved to the Red Deer Health Unit in 1933 before winning a scholarship to the University of Toronto where she received a Diploma in Public Health in 1935. Returning to the Red Deer Health Unit, she married Philip GALBRAITH, the Publisher of the Red Deer Advocate, in 1936 and lived the rest of her wonderfully full and happy life in Red Deer. She and Philip were two peas in a pod, blessed with a wide circle of Friends in Canada and overseas. They entertained with panache and travelled widely to Europe, the U.S., Asia and the Middle East. On her travels she wrote a column for the Advocate, as did her husband, who was amused that she got more fan mail than he did. She continued to travel after his death in 1970. Known for her charm, taste and warmth, she was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, a gracious hostess and a keen observer with a great sense of humour. For six decades she welcomed a constant stream of visitors and family to her home. She is survived by her daughter Mary LAUGHREN (Grant) of Calgary and son Michael GALBRAITH (María INÉS) of Singapore; and grandchildren Jessica LAUGHREN (François TREMBLAY) of Sugarland, Texas, Olivia LAUGHREN of Edmonton, Veronica GALBRAITH of Hong Kong, and Andrew GALBRAITH of Shanghai. A private funeral service will be held on Wednesday, November 28, at the Eventide Funeral Chapel in Red Deer. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice. Condolences may be forwarded to the family at Service and Interment Providers: Eventide Funeral Chapels 4820 - 45th Street, Red Deer. Phone 347-2222.
