BLOCK, May
1928-2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Selma May Arline Block (nee Mandelin) on June 8, 2018 at the Hanna Long Term Care Facility in Hanna, AB at the age of 90 years.
Predeceased by: her husband and soulmate Siegmund; parents Albert and Selma; brothers Ervin, Melvin, Norman and Eldon; sisters Florence, Evelyn, Mabel and Elsie; and a granddaughter.
May is survived by her son Trevor (Polly) and brother Clifford Mandelin. She leaves behind 3 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. May also will be remembered by her niece and nephews.
May was born May 26, 1928 on a farm near Cutbank, SK and spent time throughout her life living in Alberta and Saskatchewan. May was an accomplished cook and ran a boarding house in Calgary, along with her sister, prior to meeting the love of her life, Siegmund Block. She and Siegmund worked tirelessly to establish the family farm near Hudson Bay, SK, where she spent many long and happy days tending to her extensive garden, caring for everyone on the farm and providing a secure and loving home for her son. May’s hobbies included composing stories, poetry and songs, some of which were recorded. May’s faith was of great importance and she spent much time learning about and reflecting on the word of God.
