Reta Shaw (née: Middagh), aged 81 years of Moose Jaw, SK, passed away on Tuesday, May 14th, 2019. Reta was born to Viola Holtzman and Hugh Middagh in the town of Bursay, SK. She was predeceased by her parents, Viola Holtzman and Hugh Middagh; along with her sister, Irene and brother, Dave; sister-in-law, Marlene; and special friend Cliff Sjoberg.

Reta worked many years at the old Providence Hospital in the kitchen area, then moved into the care aide program assisting others in time of need. After retiring her years of work, she went back to school and received her grade 12 certification, and she was very proud of that achievement. Her many joys in life were baking and preparing family meals. She enjoyed playing cards with family and friends and the activities held at Chateau St. Michaels. A special thank you to the staff of Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital, as well as Chateau St. Michaels. In keeping with Reta’s wishes, a Private Family Service will be held at a later date.
