LUCY DONNA PAVAN (nee Bitango), beloved wife of the late Joe Pavan, passed away at Park Meadows Good Sams on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at the age of 96 years.

Born in Hardieville, Lucy grew up on a farm in the Sunnyside community. She was a resilient child, enduring polio and many stays away from home for medical treatment throughout her childhood. She met Joe and married on October 21, 1945. She enjoyed working at Western Canada Hardware and then for many years, until her retirement, for the County of Lethbridge.

She was affectionately known to many as “Grandma Lucy” and spent her time caring for her humongous gardens, sharing her love of gardening and flowers with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She looked forward to visitors and her door was always open, offering a drink and some of her delicious baking to whoever stopped by. She was a long-time member of the Catholic Women’s League and the Weaver’s Guild and loved to gift her warm blankets to family and friends.

Lucy is lovingly remembered by her daughters, Pat (Ken) Anderson of Pincher Creek, Ann Duncombe (Ray Yezovich) of Lethbridge, and Joan (Jim) Peterson of Colorado Springs; her son-in-law, John Morgan of Foremost; and her brother, Francis “Punch” Bitango; as well as her grandchildren, Shawn (Coralee) Anderson, Clint (Elizabeth) Anderson, James (Andrea) Anderson, Paula (Dean) Palmarchuk, Chris Duncombe (Tara Semeschuk), Ryan Morgan (Mandy Pack), Ashley Morgan (Ryan Miller), Joe (Kat) Peterson, and David Peterson; and her great grandchildren: Levi, Lewis, Colton, Malina, Hallie, Cole, Mackenzie, Kahlan, Reed, Dalin, Bella, Tove, and Ryland. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and their families. She was predeceased by her daughter, Donna Morgan, brother Mike Bitango, grandson Jody Anderson, and her parents, Matt and Mary Bitango.

Her family would like to thank the staff at Park Meadows for their care of Lucy during her time there

A Celebration of Lucy’s Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, on Friday, June 17, 2022 at 2:00 P.M. with Father Kevin Tumback officiating.
