Grace was born near Kinistino on August 5th, 1924. At the age of 16, she moved to Melfort and began work as a seamstress. Four years later at the age of 20, she married her husband Steve Haidey on Valentine’s day, 1944. They were married for 66 years. Together, they built a family farm and raised three children.

Central to Mom’s life was her commitment and dedication to her family. She instilled the values of an honest day’s work and above all, honesty with others. Mom was never one to complain, despite the many hardships, and she always kept the attitude of ‘making the best of things’. She always had a smile on her face.

Mom was a remarkably resourceful and self-reliant woman. To earn extra money, she knit siwash sweaters, sewed clothes, and once even raised turkeys for sale. She was a social person and had many friends. She was active in sports, curling for many years, and then later having bowled in a woman’s league.

Mom was admired as an exceptionally capable homemaker. Her home was always neat and tidy and the meals that she cooked for family were always highly anticipated. Mom always grew a garden, something she did for 75 years. She was an expert seamstress and as a younger woman, sewed many of her own clothes as well as for others. Mom was a talented quilter and she made certain that each family member received their own special quilt. Throughout her life, she lived with kindness, and thoughtfulness for others.

Mom showed us all how to live a life that is more caring and kind. She made our lives richer and we are all better for having shared our lives with her.

Mom, we are forever grateful for your life of unwavering commitment and service to our family. We will always miss your smile.

A Private Family Service for Grace will be held at a later date.
Friends so wishing may make memorial contributions to the Alzheimer Association of Saskatchewan or to a Charity of One's Choice.

I miss Grandma, Grace Haidey. Everything about Grandma, was goodness.
When visiting home from BC, I so very enjoyed our tea time and visits. Grandma was full of stories and laughter. I loved Grandma’s laughter! It was quite contagious. I couldn’t help but laugh along with her.
As a very kind person, I remember Grandma was willing to help people, and help with up to large events at the Resource Hall, especially. She was a “Resource Homemaker”. Along with other local women, she would serve so incredibly delicious cooked meals and baked goods/deserts.
Grandma was a highly skilled and talented person, which I know we all admired, and so greatly appreciated. I recall her keeping herself busy with her hobbies including: delicious cooking/baking; ceramics; knitting; sewing; bowling; teddy bear making; and, quilting. I also know that we were all grateful to have Grandma’s gifts, made with her own hands and love, which mine, I keep on a special shelf in my home - “Grandma’s Shelf”.
I feel so lucky to have had Grandma in my life. I will always love my Grandma, Grace Haidey.

My deepest sympathies to all of my Haidey Cousins on the passing of their Mother, Grandmother and my Aunt Grace. She was a wonderful Aunt and an amazing woman.
I will truly miss her, our talks and phone calls and specifically her hearty little laugh.
She will live on in my memories forever.

I first met Grace in 1977 and she became my mother-in-law In 1978. From the beginning she welcomed me into her home and always had a cherry pie waiting when we came to visit because she knew it was my favourite. She was a fantastic cook and all of her dishes soon became my favourite. Whenever my friends would complain about their mothers-in law I would smile and say that I had hit the mother-in-law jackpot when I married Christel. There is a large hole in my life now that Grace has passed, a hole that I will try to fill with fond memories.

My early memories of my mother were of a busy farm wife, always working at something. Mom was never idle. Always cooking, cleaning, baking daily, tending her garden during the summer, and canning in the Fall.
She loved curling, playing in Resource and Melfort and later becoming an avid fan of all televised games. At 93 yrs of age she played a game of base ball with us and made it to first base with much laughter. When the work was all done, crafting and sewing took over. From copper tooling pictures, making leather purses, sewing teddy bears from fur coats, knitting socks, Siwash Sweaters and dishcloths, and lastly quilting over 60 quilts. Mom's life revolved around her family and she loved everyone in it, deeply.
