Adèle Salé Obituary

Adèle Marie Lorraine Salé (nee Patry) was born March 23, 1935 in Athabasca and passed away with family by her side on February 26, 2023 at the age of 87. Adèle is survived by her husband Norman and their six children (Lorraine and Morley Knudslien, Paulette and Wes Nimco, Theresa Salé, Yvette and John Haggerty, Loretta and Bruce Ford, and David Salé), cherished grandchildren and great grandchildren (with another on the way). Adèle was pre-deceased by her sisters: Sister Yvonne Patry and Annette Lehmann.

Adèle was raised on a farm west of Athabasca and trained to be a Registered Nurse at the General Hospital in Edmonton. She was a nurse in Wetaskiwin/ Westlock for three years after marrying Norman in 1959. They purchased and moved to the Salé family farm in 1963. Adèle worked hard on the farm alongside Norman and always had a large garden. She returned to nursing in 1974 at the Athabasca Hospital until she retired in 1994. Adèle was known for her love of gardening, good cooking (especially fish and moose), baking cakes and pies, and chuck wagon racing. She had many stories of her years growing up which she was able to recall right to her last day.

Thank you to Dr. Coulson (Westlock) and Dr. Schaub (Athabasca) for caring for our wife and mother over the years. Special thank you to the staff of Athabasca Hospital and Extendicare Athabasca for their care.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Athabasca Health-Care Auxiliary Association or St. Gabriel's Roman Catholic Church.

Please join her family for prayers at the Athabasca Community Chapel the evening of March 3 at 7 pm. The funeral will be held at St. Gabriel’s Roman Catholic Church on March 4, at 11:00 am. A lunch will be served in the church basement following a private family internment.
