Alta B. Fyvie
Alta B. Fyvie, aged 88 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 5th, 2021 at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital. She had declining health for the past three years and fortunately we had been able to keep her comfortable at home until her brief admission to the hospital. Alta is survived by her husband, Donovan; sons, William and Campbell (Bill and Cam); grandchildren: Jonathan, Andrew, and Caroline; brother, David (Sharon); and several cousins, nieces and nephews. She will be missed by us all.
Alta was born in Regina, SK to Ivan and Cammie (Cameron) Gall on September 2nd, 1932. She was their first born. Alta was predeceased by her parents, her sister Roxena, and her brother Bobby.
Alta studied Psychiatric Nursing at the Saskatchewan Training School (STS) in Weyburn, SK from 1951-1954, where she graduated and received her certification. She moved to Moose Jaw with STS in 1955 where she was promoted to Cottage Supervisor. She loved all of those who were under her care and made their well-being her top priority. After starting her family, Alta nursed in Psychiatry at the Union Hospital before moving on to become Clinic Nurse for Doctors Bromley and Beharry for many years. Later still, she returned to Valley View and worked casual shifts.
In keeping with Alta’s wishes, interment will take place at Rosedale Cemetery on a warm sunny day in May.
In closing Alta would want family, relatives, and friends to raise a toast and remember her kind heart, her love for her family, her love of dogs (especially Buddy), her strong sense of humour, her love of music and dancing, her passion for politics, and her fondness for sports, especially our Saskatchewan Riders, the Blue Jays, and the Seahawks/Vikings football, as well as her fondness for travel to Barbados where she had many Bajan friends and fellow visitors from Canada, the United States, and the UK.
