DUNCAN, Emily May (nee Gauthier)

Emily Duncan

(1926 – 2020) It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Emily on March 22, 2020. She passed away quietly in her sleep with her daughters at her side. Mom was born in Trochu and raised on the Gauthier family farm west of Huxley. She was predeceased by her sister Gertrude and brother Frank. While working in Calgary in the late 1940’s she met and married our father, Charles Matthews. Together they had four daughters, Patricia, Deborah, Barbara and Sharon. Mom was predeceased by our father in 1967. After Dad’s death, Mom married Eddie Duncan in Trochu and adopted our brother, Michael. Unfortunately, Mom was again predeceased by both Eddie and Mike. She is survived by her daughters Patricia Matthews, Deborah Rowland, Barbara Fuller and Sharon Gautreau; grandsons David and Tom Rowland, Jesse and Charlie Fuller and granddaughters Nicole and Lindsay Gautreau; great grandchildren Kayden and Adrenna-Lyn. She is also survived by her cousin Arlene Duncan and sister-in-law Myrt Matthews. A memorial service will be held in Trochu, the date and time to be determined. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Autumn Glen Lodge in Innisfail, Alberta. The family is sincerely grateful to the staff of the Lodge and the staff and doctors of the Innisfail Hospital for their compassionate care for Mom. She will be greatly missed.
