We Remember

LANGMO, Mabel (née Johnson)

January 23, 1929 – January 31, 2021

Our beloved mother, Mabel Langmo, 92 years, passed away peacefully at Hospice House Kelowna on January 31, 2021. Born January 23, 1929, in Halkirk, Alberta, Mabel was an extraordinary woman. There are many in the community who will deeply mourn her passing as hers was a life of love and compassion.

She will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Wendy (Bruce) Murdoch, Sherry (Richard) Dahle, and Jan (Dan) Hanna; her sons Alan (Susan) Smythe and Hugh (Shawna) Smythe; her grandchildren Shelley (Dean) Landmark, Kodi Lee Smythe-Jones, Logan (Alena) Murdoch, Keltie Murdoch, Austin Smythe, Colter Smythe, Dakota Smythe, Kyle Hanna, Korin (Nick) Yunker, and Alyson (Dave) Priede: her great-grandchildren Sheldon York, Ceanna Landmark, Hayden Hanna, London Hanna, Jack Yunker, Liam Yunker, Annett Yunker, Olivia Priede, Eila Palmer, Victoria Murdoch, and Anton Murdoch. Her memory will also be cherished by her sister Olive Taferner; her brothers Ike (Florence) Johnson and Paul (Margaret) Johnson; as well as by her son-in-law Larry York and many very favoured nieces and nephews.

She was sadly predeceased by her husbands Wentworth Smythe, the love of her life and father of her children, as well as Herb Schultz, and Jim Langmo; her daughter Carol York; her sisters Violet Bradshaw, Marion Yates, Grace Webster, Mary Johnson, and Dorothy Brennan; and her brothers George, Walter, Joe, Charlie, Pat, Carl, and Hugh Johnson. 

The family would like to mention their appreciation to all medical staff at Kelowna General Hospital, Cottonwoods, Hospice House Kelowna, and the Interior Health caregivers who came to her home, as well as the many wonderful friends and neighbours who also came by to offer their help.  And, to Dr. Hoppe, they would like to express their sincere gratitude for the above and beyond effort that went into Mabel’s care.
