Marvil Albin Foss, the husband of the late Bernice Foss, sadly passed away on Sunday September 6, 2020 at the age of 94.
He was born on April 14, 1926 on the Foss homestead in Frontier, Sask. He grew up on the farm helping his dad. He attended school at Paradise Valley and eventually took over the farm. He grew different types of crops, raised pigs, chickens and Herford cows. He loved the farm and built it up to be a very comfortable life for him and his family. Marvil greatly enjoyed attending rodeos; he always had a big smile on his face while there. He was an avid sports fan. He loved playing baseball and was a fine back catcher. He drove down to Seattle to watch a couple MLB games and talked about how much he enjoyed it. You could always find him in front of the TV watching baseball, hockey or the news. He married the love of his life, Thelma (Anderson) on January 1, 1950. They were inseparable. They enjoyed farm life to the fullest. In 1999, when they retired, they moved to Lethbridge and built a new house which he was very proud of and loved having family visit. He loved to keep busy by working outside. He took pride in making sure his yard looked good. He enjoyed mowing his lawn, helping with the flower beds and would always make sure that not only his sidewalk was shoveled in the winter, but his neighbors as well. In 2016, Marvil and Bernice moved to Medicine Hat, AB where they lived for a couple of years before having to move to Maple Creek, SK to get the care they needed, while still being able to be together.
