It is with a heavy heart that the Living Waters Board of Trustees and Central Office staff must share with you the recent loss of their Whitecourt Ward Trustee, Irene Sawyer. After a short battle with cancer she passed away in the afternoon on Sunday, September 8th in her sleep surrounded by family and friends.
Irene served our Living Waters Catholic School Division as a dedicated trustee for 12 years and was a strong advocate for the most vulnerable child. She was a voice for those who were struggling and for those who were most challenged. In taking her trustee role seriously, she fulfilled her duties relentlessly as a servant for our students and for education across the waters.
Keep her and those closest to her in your thoughts and prayers.
Irene is to be cremated, therefore arrangements for a Memorial Service have not been finalized at this time.
