Archie was born in Acme on March 10, 1938. After John and Archie were married, they lived the majority of their years in the Taber/Vauxhall area before moving to Carmangay and later Claresholm. Archie adored John and he made sure to always spoil the love of his life. After John’s passing, Archie lived in Olds before returning to Taber where she remained until her passing.
Archie was a spunky woman. She was an incredibly hardworking individual and operated her own businesses over the years. She would deal with the challenges life presented and then go shopping! Her appearance was very important to her and she took great pride in always looking her best.
