Tragically, on October 13, 2011, Jolene Côté’s life was ended, the victim of homicide at age 36, leaving her family, including her husband and two small children, many friends, students, colleagues, and teammates, devastated and overwhelmed with the loss.
Jolene’s two small children always came first in her life; she was a kind and gentle mother, a loving and adored wife, a cherished daughter, sister and friend to so many. Mrs. Côté was a dedicated and popular teacher at Greystone Centennial Middle School, and prior to that, she taught at Mayerthorpe Junior High School for many years. Jolene had a love for sports; she coached several athletic teams, such as basketball and golf and played on many teams over the years including slowpitch, curling, team handball, and soccer. Jolene dedicated her life to helping others and enriching the community she lived in, and now it is our turn to give back to her.
We are hosting two nights of comedy on Monday, December 19 and Tuesday, December 20, 2011, at the Horizon Stage in Spruce Grove, Alberta. Host, Graham Neil (CTV), and headliner, Kenny Valgardson, have graciously volunteered their talents. In conjunction with each of these comedy shows, we will host silent auctions. All funds raised from the two evenings will go directly to the Jolene Côté Memorial Trust Fund.
