In Loving Memory of Corinne (Boyd) Rutberg. Sunrise: May 6, 1927 Sunset: January 3, 2017 On January 3, 2017 Corinne passed away at the Grande Prairie Care Centre at the age of 89. Mom was born May 6, 1927 in her childhood home at the family farm in Crystal Creek, Alberta. In 1949 she married the love of her life, Bill Rutberg. Together they had four children. They lived in a little house in Grande Prairie; and in 1961 they moved to an acreage close to Mom’s childhood home. Our family went on to love the country life. We made lifetime memories and friends with all of our neighbours, who showed their love in many ways. We will lovingly remember Mom’s devotion and her unconditional love towards her husband and her children. We will be forever grateful. Corinne is survived by her sons Dennis (Carol Ann) and Rod (Debbie); her daughter, Judy (Barry); her nine grand-children and many great-grandchildren; her sister, Iris Nelson (Bert); and her brother, Harmon Boyd. Corinne is predeceased by her husband, Bill; son, Gary; parents, Fred and Faye; Sister, Mavis; brother, Marshall; and great-grandson, Avery. As Mom had requested there will be no funeral service. The family would like to extend many heartfelt thanks to the staff at the Grande Prairie Care Centre for their compassion and care. Thank you for loving our mom. Thank you to Dr. Zumani and to Dr. Iziguzo. God saw mom getting tired so he whispered, "Come to Me." Care entrusted to Bear Creek Funeral Home 780-830-7742
