Obituary

It is with much gratefulness for the love she gave each of us that we announce the passing of our Mom, Vi Houff of Medicine Hat on Friday, August 18, 2023, at the age of 92 years, beloved wife of the late John Houff.  She leaves to cherish her memory four children, Cheryl (Delvin) Heller, Sylvia (Steve) Clark, Debbie Houff and Don (Brenda) Houff, twelve grandchildren, twenty great grandchildren and five great, great grandchildren; one sister, Leona Leismeister, one sister-in-law Emily Howkins, as well as numerous nephews and nieces.  She was predeceased by her husband John, her parents Olga and Otto Sieppert, and three sisters Jean Vaughn, Arylene Schimpf and Minnie Houff.  
Mom and Dad were true partners on the dairy farm and it was often commented that she was as strong as, and worked as hard as, a man.  While she worked hard at her outside chores, she also made the time and somehow found the energy to be an accomplished homemaker.  She was particularly known as the best bread baker and pickle maker around.
Those who wish to pay their respects may do so at the PATTISON FUNERAL HOME on Wednesday evening from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.  The funeral service will be held in the Pattison Funeral Home & Celebration of Life Centre on Thursday, August 24, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. with Pastor Roland Weisbrot and Rev. James C. Bredeson officiating.  A private interment will take place prior to the funeral service at Hillside Cemetery.  The service will be live streamed.  Those who wish to attend virtually, please visit pattisonfuneralhom.com and select live streaming, then select the youtube (arrow).  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Red Cross or the Margery E.
