August 1, 1942 – July 18, 2018
Naomi Rose Regnier of Alder Flats, Alberta passed away at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre on Wednesday, July 18, 2018 at the age of 75 years.
Naomi was born on August 1, 1942 in Toronto, Ontario to Elliot and Laura Land, the third eldest of eight siblings. When she was three, the family loaded up the children in the back of the old truck and headed west to the Halkirk area farm.
Naomi took her first employment in Lake Louise working at the Post Hotel, which is where she met the love of her life, Richard Regnier. They were united in marriage on April 26, 1963. Naomi and Richard moved around quite a bit working in Jasper, the Ya Ha Tinda Ranch, the Yukon, Alix, Caroline, and then finally settling in Alder Flats. Shawn joined their family in 1969, and the family was complete.
Naomi was the most amazing cook…she was ‘the kitchen magician’! When she and Richard owned the Boundary Store, people from all over would come for her fresh-baked bread and cinnamon buns. Naomi loved and took great pride in her family, as they were her greatest joy. When her grandson, Brayden was born, he quickly became the light of her life.
Naomi welcomed many children into her heart and they loved her as a ‘special grandma’. Her siblings and in-laws, as well as their children, were all very dear to her heart. Naomi was a hard-working woman who gave her all in everything she did in life. She always put other’s needs before her own, and would do everything in her power to make things better for them. She truly had a heart of gold.
Naomi will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by her beloved husband of 55 years, Richard; her son, Shawn (Elaine); and her precious grandson, Brayden. She will also be lovingly remembered by her siblings: Ken Land, Alice (Jack) Nephin, Elliott (Sharon) Land, Fred (Sandra) Land, Darius (Nancy) Land, Roger (Shelley) Land, and Laurie (Rob) Bullick; in addition to numerous nieces and nephews, other extended family, and several dear friends.
Naomi was predeceased by many relatives and close friends.
A Celebration of Naomi’s Life will be held at the Buck Lake Community Centre, Buck Lake on Saturday, August 11, 2018 at 1:00 p.m.
Cremation took place at the Central Alberta Crematorium, Red Deer.
