Obituary of Mabel Difley

We are sad to announce the death of long time Moose Jaw area resident, Mabel Difley, on June 19, 2020. Born Mabel Church, June 10,1936 in Chamberlain. She was predeceased by her husband, Gordon Difley; daughter Tracy Hoium; sister Darlene Emes and her parents Cliff and Ida Church. She is survived by her son Brent Difley; daughter Tara Leicht (Jeff); grandsons Jordan Hoium, Tyler Difley and Bryce Difley; great granddaughter and light of her life, Riley Hoium. Family meant everything to Mabel and she treasured her role as Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Daughter. She had a nurses’ heart, a graduate of the first nursing class at the University of Saskatchewan in 1957. She was a caregiver her entire life, spending her nursing career at the Union Hospital. She sacrificed a lot to care for family that went on before her. She was a caring and compassionate person with an indomitable spirt, strong and stubborn. She had a deep appreciation for nature, the livestock and all that ranch life entailed. Mom treasured her time at her home on the ranch at Buffalo Pound Lake and even late in her life, that’s where she wanted to be. Her ashes will be spread in the valley, in a private family ceremony, and she’ll again be in the company of her beloved husband, Gordon and daughter Tracy. The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all of the staff at West Park Crossing and Dr. Kerrie Hetherington for their kind and compassionate care over the last two years. Her care and quality of life far exceeded our expectations and for that we will always be grateful.

In living memory of Mabel, a memorial planting will be made by Jones - Parkview Funeral Services.
