It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Solange Régina Desnoyers, beloved mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, neighbour, and friend. Sally passed away on Saturday, July 17, 2021, Regina, SK, at the age of 35 years. Sally was born in Moose Jaw, SK, on June 22, 1986. She was the youngest child of Jerry and Mabel (nee Hawkins) Desnoyers, and a sister to Joe and Denis. Sally attended school in Gravelbourg and received the Governor General’s Award upon graduation. She moved to Lethbridge, AB to continue her education and excelled in her schoolwork. Sally was blessed to be the mother of three beautiful children, Leila, Colt, and Rex. She cherished time spent with her children. Sally always ensured they felt her love and that they were well taken care of. She loved to draw, colour, paint, play, and have fun with them. They enjoyed ballgames, walks, and time at the farm together. Sally loved to cook and bake, especially for her children. Christmas was always dear to her heart and she loved celebration; much of this love was rooted in her faith. Sally made friends easily and gathered many, making many meaningful friendships. She loved to make people smile and had a gift for making others feel special. Sally had a caring heart and was always ready to lend a helping hand. She loved her community of Coderre and spending time at the Shamrock Park. She enjoyed playing softball and was a Braves fan. Sally was a bright light. Her love of life was boundless and contagious. Sally’s love for her children shone with the brightest of light, and family was everything to her. May we remember the great times spent with Sally and cherish those we love as deeply as she did. Sally will be forever in the hearts of her loving family and friends.
