Edward Wallace (Ed) Dubois

Edward Wallace (Ed) Dubois passed away at his residence in Revelstoke, BC, Tuesday, Aug. 29th, 2006 at the age of 79 years. A Memorial Reception was held at the family home on Thursday afternoon, Aug. 31. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the B.C. Heart & Stroke Foundation, 2nd Floor, 1212 West Broadway, Vancouver, B.C. V6H 3Y2, in memory of Ed.

Ed was born in Wampum, Man. on Aug 26, 1927 and had been a resident of Revelstoke for the past eight years, moving from Manitoba. He liked to hunt and fish in his younger years. Ed's passion in life was reading and he especially enjoyed non-fiction detective stories. He was a hard-working man who worked as a logger and in the nickel mines for many years.

Ed was predeceased by his parents, Dolphis and Hannah; a brother Allan Dubois and his infant son, Robert Dubois. He is survived by two children: Linda (Holger) Jarche of Revelstoke and Edward Dubois Jr. of Vancouver, BC.; two sisters: Joan (Alcide) Fortin of South Junction, Manitoba and Jeannine Nelson of The County of Roseau, Minnesota; nieces and nephews: Wendy, Robert, Charles, Bruce, Charlotte, Marlin, Heidi and Glenn; sister-in-law Gudrun of Nanaimo, BC. and uncle Walter Pederson of Vassar, Man.

Cremation arrangements were in the care of Brandon Bowers Funeral Home, Revelstoke.


Mom was born in Grunthal, Man. on June 1, 1918. In 1927, she moved with her family to Halbstadt, Paraguay, where she grew up and met Dad.

Mom and Dad were married Oct. 23, 1938. She and Dad ran a farm in the Chaco. All of their 12 children were born in Paraguay. In 1964, they decided to return to Canada, and five of their children remained in Paraguay.

After returning to Grunthal, Mom worked at many tasks in the Grunthal Menno Home, and then began a sewing career, which she worked at until retirement. After her retirement, she continued to do piece work for the sewing factory in the sewing room off the kitchen. Her servant heart and love for the Lord caused her to spend time working with the Nähverein at church, making quilts, volunteering in the MCC store and for Meals on Wheels. Mom loved reading, especially from her Bible. She and Dad had a routine of reading from the Bible together every morning. After Dad's eyes caused him to have difficulty seeing, she often read out loud to him. She also enjoyed knitting, crocheting, and going on senior bus tours. Mom was a gifted writer and wrote many articles for the Mennonitische Post.

Mom loved her family very, very much. (Good thing, because there are a lot of us!) One of the ways that she demonstrated her love for all of us was through her ceaseless prayers for her children and grandchildren, whom she prayed for by name. When Mom was 18 years of age, her mother passed away and she had to become the main caregiver for her siblings. Mom and Dad had 12 children, 43 grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren, with another on the way, and two great-great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her parents, three brothers, one sister, one son (who died as an infant), and three grandchildren.

Since 1997, Mom had been struggling with her health, and she spent many days in the hospital in the last few years. Saturday, Aug. 19, Mom was hospitalized once again, and her health gradually declined throughout the week. In spite of this, during the last week some of the family was able to be with Mom to sing hymns and visit. During this time Mom talked a lot about her own mother, and had a huge grin on her face. We believe God gave her a glimpse of glory! At 2 a.m., Friday, Aug. 25, Jesus called her home. She was at last at peace in the arms of her Lord.

The funeral was held Aug. 29, 2006 at Elim Mennonite Church in Grunthal, with interment at the Grunthal Cemetery. If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

1919 - 2006

Saturday, Sept. 2, 2006, Lloyd Hamblin passed away peacefully in the Morris Hospital, surrounded by his family. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 61 years, Dorothy (Binding); daughter Marian and Lyle Beattie and their daughters Heather and Colleen; son Don and Rhonda and their sons Brad (Kari) and Keith; son Lorne and Chris and their sons David, Kevin, and Doug. He is also survived by his sisters, Winnie Nisely and Irene Calder; brother Tom; and their families, and the family of his late brother Ed.

Lloyd was born June 18, 1919 in the Woodmore, Man. area to Fred and Emily (Pott) Hamblin. The Hamblins moved to farm in the St. Jean area in 1935. He and Dorothy were married in 1945 and they continued farming, later bringing their sons into the operation.

Lloyd's life revolved around his family and the joy he found with them, sharing his passion for farming, fishing, hunting, and cribbage. He loved nature and all animals. He always had treats in his pocket, not just for his grandkids, but also for the pets in the family.

Lloyd was one of the founders of the Manitoba Stampede and Exhibition, and took pleasure in seeing the success of this event. He was honoured in 1984 with his inclusion into the Red Hat Club. He was also honoured as a Life Member of the Morris Curling Club, and recognized by Scouts Canada. He was a long-time member of the Masons and Eastern Star.

Lloyd had a wonderful sense of humour, and loved to play tricks on his numerous nephews and nieces, children and grandchildren. Anyone who played crib would have to have a watchful eye, as he was quick to pull a fast one if he could get away with it.

The family would like to thank Drs. Fraser and Loewen, and the staff at the Morris Hospital, for their care and compassion.

If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Valley Regional Library, Box 397, Morris, MB, R0G 1K0.

The funeral service was held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2006 at the Morris United Church. The funeral arrangements were in the care of Morris Funeral Home.


It is with deep sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of Garry Penner, on Sept. 3, 2006, at the age of 46. He leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife of 27 years, Deann; two sons, Jeremy and Jason; one daughter, Constance (David Andrè); his mother and father, Jacob and Margaret; four brothers: Jake (Barb), Allan (Doris), Danny (Carole), Dale (April); and two sisters: Margaret (David Dueck), and Linda (Randy Goertzen). He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Edith Baldwin; three brothers-in-law and their spouses; two sisters-in-law and their spouses; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by one brother, Andrew, in 1993 and his father-in-law Harvey Baldwin in 1985.

Dad was born in Steinbach, Man. on May 8, 1960 and lived near Grunthal, Man. his whole life. He started his trucking career in 1980 and continued trucking right till the end. Dad and Mom started their own trucking company in 1996, titled G.D.P. Trucking Ltd. He was very proud of his sons following his dreams in trucking. Dad always worked hard so his wife and children could enjoy the toys that he brought home for them as well as family vacations, most of which were all last minute decisions. Money had no value to him and family was very important. He helped out his children financially whenever needed and loved to travel and see all the beautiful scenery he could. Dad loved to go hunting, camping, fishing, boating, snowmobiling, and especially watching his sons race at Gimli. He also loved to ride his motorcycle and was proud to ride with his kids. Dad always made time to visit and have coffee with family and friends. His home and heart were always open to everyone. Dad generously shared one Christmas Eve when he gave his brothers and brothers-in-law G.D.P. jackets and hats, and later on gave them each a swinging park bench.

Dad and Mom took their last trip together with friends to visit his daughter and son-in-law's soon-to-be residence near Prince George, B.C. Dad was happy to see where his little girl would be moving and was at peace with her move, knowing that he would be with her wherever she lived. His last day was spent at the races in Gimli doing one of the last things he enjoyed. He loved the Lord with all his heart and made sure he lived life to the fullest. His memories will forever and always live on in our hearts.

I did not know the time or hour that God had set to be
When angels came and whisked me to a place prepared for me.
And there it was - the brightest light and on my knees I fell
I asked the Lord, "Is this the place You made for us to dwell?"
He welcomed me with open arms as a Father greets his son
Then I asked, "Why me, oh Lord? You know I am so young."
He turned to me and then He said, "Your job on earth was done.
A purpose new I have for you - Your life has just begun."
I know right now that your heart aches, but it will not always be.
So do not stand at my grave and weep - I am not there - I do not sleep.
I'm in a thousand winds that blow - I'm in the diamond glints of snow
I'm in sunlight on ripened grain - I'm in the gentle autumn's rain
When you awake in morning's hush - I'm in the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight - I'm in soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there. I did not die.
(By Rachelle Catellier and Annette Bouvier)

Arrangements entrusted to Vita Funeral Homes, `St Pierre Chapel', St-Pierre-Jolys, Man.
