October 29, 2023 - Calgary, Alberta
It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of our beloved wife, mother and grandmother, Louise Anne Hacock (nee Spankie), on Sunday, October 29, 2023, at the age of 87 years.
Louise was born in Innisfail, AB on December 8,1935 and grew up in Calgary, AB where she met her husband, Robert, of over 60 years. Louise was an academic and a lifelong learner and one of the smartest people you will ever meet. She enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, singing, golfing, camping, volunteering in the community and at her church. Louise joined the United Church and was a proud member of the congregation and choir throughout her lifetime.
The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Louise and she led her life as an example of service, patience, kindness, forgiveness, acceptance, and always encouraged others to do the same. Louise had a long career in the oil and gas field as a Geophysical Technician, however, she cherished her role as a grandmother to her three grandchildren the most.
Louise will be lovingly remembered by her children, Robert, Leslie (Tim) and Randy; and her grandchildren, Kirsten (Jeremy), Douglas and Jonathan. She was predeceased by her husband Robert, parents, Mildred and Alexander Spankie; sisters, Helen (Bev) Bording and Marie (Bill) Dustan; and brother Ron (Janet) Spankie.
