Former Stake President Passed Away

Former Stake President Passed Away

MAGRATH - At the age of 96, Grant Woolley passed away 21 August 2000 to join his wife. Hazel Woolley had passed away 19 January 2000.

Born 7 June 1904 in Magrath, Alberta, Woolley was the ninth child of Orson and Alice Woolley. He taught as a teacher in Magrath, eventually serving an eight-year term as the high school principal. He also helped coached high school basketball team to two provincial championships.

Woolley managed the Magrath Co-op from 1944 until he moved to the Southern Alberta Co-op (Lethbridge) in 1947. He also served three terms on the Lethbridge board of education.

Grant &Hazel married in the Cardston Alberta Temple (at that time called the Alberta Temple) in 1924. They later served twenty years as workers in the temple.

In 1951 Woolley was called as stake president of the Lethbridge Alberta Stake. He was later called as president of the newly-formed Lethbridge Alberta East Stake where he served until 1960. President &Sister Woolley were then called to preside for four years over the West Central States Mission out of Billings, Montana.

A funeral service was held yesterday in the Magrath Alberta Stake Centre, and Woolley was buried in the Magrath Cemetery.
