Felicia Magor Louden
June 12, 1926 - June 25, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother Felicia (nee Magor) Louden. She will be lovingly remembered by her children Doug Walsh, Elaine (Terry) Osborne, Heather Bartzis (Bruce), Robert Louden, Don Louden, Bruce Louden and Brian Louden (Karen). She is also survived by twelve grandchildren, fourteen great grand children, and one great-great grandchild along with many nieces, nephews and other family members.

She is predeceased by her great grandson John Charmont, grandson-in-law Chris Charmont, all of her six siblings June, John, Lincoln, Martha, Robert, and Murray along with her parents, Robert and Marion Magor of Montreal.

Felicia led a long and interesting life. She had fond memories of her childhood growing up in the Mount Royal area of Montreal, and especially loved the trips to the Lac Echo family cottage where she spent hours cross-country skiing and canoeing with her dad.

Mom was especially proud of her father, RJ Magor, who was an avid sportsman, a political advisor, and a successful businessman. He was president of The National Steel Car Corp which expanded into the development and manufacturing of airplanes and parts used in the second world war.

Mother’s family was, and is, well-represented in the fine and performing arts. She often attended performances at the Lincoln Centre/Metropolitan Opera House in New York where her grandfather had also performed as a well-liked opera singer. Mom became an accomplished pianist, influenced by her mother, Marion Stoddard Ferguson Magor, who had been trained as a concert pianist.

As a daughter of Montreal elite society Felicia was ‘presented’ to society and to the King’s representative in Canada. After graduating, she volunteered in a nursing capacity as part of the war effort. She also attended ‘finishing’ school, whereupon she was expected to marry well and take her proper place in society.

Our mother decided, however, that she was not at all ‘finished’ and travelled west to attend the San Francisco Art Institute and later the Banff School of Fine Arts. She married William "Scotty Bill" Louden, an accomplished writer, teacher, musician and chess master. Calgary became their home where they started a family. They lived in Calgary and in Hawaii for about twenty years before separating. He remained in Hawaii until his passing. She moved her family to Rocky Mountain House in 1967. In midlife, she returned to Calgary to finish her Fine Arts degree. Being a lover of nature and the west country, she returned to her home in Rocky Mountain House for her final years.

Far from being an ‘apple pie mom’ our mother was an adventurer with a pioneering spirit who lived life on her own terms. She was a beautiful, vibrant, intriguing, unfaltering, creative soul with an astute sense of humour, deeply spiritual, and especially sympathetic to the plight of the First Nations and Metis Peoples. In her later years, she drew great comfort from drawing closer to her family.
