It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our wife and mother, Andela, Thursday, Oct. 18, 2007 at the age of 83 years, at Bethesda Place, Steinbach.

Remaining to forever cherish Andela's memory are her husband Peter, daughters Marion Parisien, Darlene Johansson and husband Ken, Shirley Allen and husband Keith and sons Peter and wife Janet, Dennis and partner Sharon, and Jeffrey and wife Laurel. She will also be sadly missed by her 14 grandchildren, her six great-grandchildren, as well as nieces, nephews and friends. She was predeceased by her parents, Frank and Veronika Riha and brother Frank Riha.

Andela was born in Czechoslovakia Feb. 25, 1924 where she lived until age 15 when she immigrated to Canada. At age 18 she went to work at the Victoria Hospital in Winnipeg until 1946 when she married Peter Illchuk on June 8 of that year. She had the Post Office in Carrick for 10 years before she went to work in Steinbach at Friendly Family Farms. She worked there for 18 years and retired at the age of 67.

She was dedicated to her family; a loving mother who always put everyone else before herself. Her quiet strength and fortitude resulted not only in a tight knit family but instilled in us the confidence and work ethic that has been passed down to generations.

The funeral service, officiated by Father Albert Frechette, was held at Birchwood Funeral Chapel in Steinbach Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 11 a.m. Interment at Woodridge Cemetery.

The family would like to extend special thanks to all of the staff at Bethesda Place for the friendship and wonderful care and compassion shown to our mother during her stay.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba,

Dec. 1, 1941 - Oct. 19, 2007

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Noel Catellier of Vita, MB Friday, Oct. 19, 2007 at Bethesda Hospital, Steinbach, MB at the age of 65 years.

Noel was survived by his loving wife Rita, his children: Jackie, Bruce (Kim); four grandchildren: Sarah, Jordan, Kaitlyn, and Samantha. Also surviving him are seven sisters: Lucille, Imelda, Beatrice (Rolland), Carmel, Yvonne, Lena (Richard), Eveline (Dave), and three brothers: Laurent (Elsie), Aurthur (Alice), Firmin (Evelyn).

He was predeceased by his parents Marcel and Donalda, his brothers Severe and Rosaire and his sisters (little) Imelda, Marceline, and Therese.

Noel was born in St Malo, MB and grew up north of Vita along the Rat River. He later raised his family on the same land. He will always be remembered for keeping his door open to all family, friends and neighbours. Noel loved to teach children about the farm and would often invite families to spend the weekend there.

His hobbies consisted mainly of outdoor activities. He could often be found fishing with family or friends along the river, in the bush during hunting season, or just working outside on the farm. Noel also loved quiet drives through the countryside. Even when he traveled he preferred to see nature above anything else. His main indoor activities were watching the blue jays or entertaining company. The love he had for others was obviously returned by the countless visitors he had during his last few weeks.

The family would like to thank all those who kept him company and helped him feel comfortable.

Cremation has taken place and a memorial service is to be held at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church in Tolstoi, Friday, Oct. 26, 2007 at 2 p.m., with interment to follow at the St Isadore cemetery, Vita, MB. We will then have lunch at the hall in Vita.

Suddenly, Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2007, Edwin T. Plett passed away at the age of 74.

Edwin was born July 1, 1933 at home in Blumenhof. He was baptized upon his faith at the age of 17. On Sept. 10, 1955, he was married to Esther Wiebe and they began their life together in Winnipeg.

He is survived by his wife Esther of 52 years. Sons Ric (Jacque) and Doug (Grace); daughters Cindy, Brenda (Dave) and Sheila (Roger); 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Also left to mourn are brothers Wilbert, Henry, Ken and sisters Betty, Mary, Katherine, Amelia and their families.

He was predeceased by his parents David R. and Katherine Plett, stepmother Gertrude, two brothers David and Gordon and one sister Joyce.

Throughout his life, Dad had many different jobs but they all seemed to involve working outside in some way. Whether it was working in the saw camps or family farm as a young man, being the greens keeper for both the Falcon Lake and the Steinbach golf courses or operating the cherry-picker in the saw mills for Southeast Forest Products.

Dad attended church along with mom at the Southland Community Church with a usual routine of A&W for breakfast with some of their children and friends, followed by lunch at Chicken Chef. Dad enjoyed his bike riding tours around Steinbach, stopping in almost everywhere to either greet or help out anyone that was in need of assistance.

Dad will be remembered and missed by the many people he encountered through his daily activities. Whether it was visiting around Steinbach, visiting friends in the hospital, or venturing out on odd jobs like picking up and delivering new cars for local dealerships, Dad was always eager to help anyone out!

Dad's greatest past time came from spending time with his good friends Art Schultz and Henry Wall. They spent a lot of time together gardening, picking strawberries, cutting grass, yard maintenance, and going out to the bush to help with the winter wood supply for the kids. It was there that Art and Dad ventured out for the day to Sandilands Provincial Forest to help retrieve wood slabs. It seems so fitting that Dad was with his close friend and in such familiar surroundings when he passed away and the family is comforted by that.

We would like to thank the emergency response team in the Vita district and a special thank you goes to Louise at the Vita Hospital for compassion and concern upon our arrival. Thanks to Birchwood Funeral Chapel and Southland Community Church for making these arrangements easier.

The funeral service will be held Friday, Oct. 26, 2007 at 2 p.m. at the Southland Community Church, Hwy 52 W, Steinbach, MB. Interment at Heritage Cemetery in Steinbach.

Arrangements by: Birchwood Funeral Chapel, Steinbach and Winnipeg, MB, 1-888-454-1030 or 346-1030.


Maria Martens Peters' struggle with cancer ended Sunday, Oct. 21, 2007 when she was mercifully taken into glory at the age of 87. She was born in the Grunthal, MB area Mar. 27, 1920 and later moved to Niverville where she spent the rest of her life.

She was predeceased by her husband Jacob W. and grandson Christopher Derksen.

She is survived by her son Frank (Sharon), daughters Mary (David Doern), Margaret (Michael Derksen) and her son Theodore (Lise).

Twelve grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren will also miss the love of their grandmother Maria.

Many visits from friends and relatives made a well-worn path to her door at Silver Courts. Very important to her were the adult day programs. All visits and appointments had to be scheduled around Mondays and Thursdays. If she happened to have company Tuesday, they would have to join her for lunch at the Friendship Centre.

Maria's family thanks the staff and volunteers of the Adult Day Program at the Niverville Friendship Centre. Susan Bergman and Linda Klippenstein were always there to greet her with a hug and a word of welcome. Liesa Funk made sure that Maria would get her Tuesday lunch even when she was sick and could not go to the Friendship Centre. She loved the special music and entertainment every week. The many volunteers made the Program fun and enjoyable.

The family thanks the loving staff on the first floor of Steinbach Bethesda Hospital, which was Maria's home since May 2007; a special thank you to Dr. Krahn for his compassionate care and to the Home Care staff.

The funeral service was held at the Word of Life Mission Church, 233 Third St. S, Niverville Thursday, Oct. 25 at 2 p.m. with interment at the Niverville Heritage Cemetery.

Donations may be made to South Eastman Health Authority (SEHA)-Bethesda Hospital Foundation, Box 939, Steinbach, MB R5G 1A3

Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2007 at the Repos Jolys in St Pierre, MB, Michael passed away at the age of 85 years.

Michael was born June 6, 1922 in Selo, Rozdil, Mykolaiv Rajon, Lviv'ska Oblast, Ukraine as the eldest son of Nicholas and Katharina.

During WWII Mike was forced to leave home to go to Germany where he worked for the American Police Guard in the UNRRA Displaced Persons Camp in Cornberg. This is where he met Anastasia (Mary) Zinkewicz, the love of his life. They were united in marriage Oct. 25, 1946.

In 1949 the couple immigrated to Canada settling in Carey and Dufrost where Mike worked for the railroad. Rosa was where the family finally settled. Mike farmed there until his retirement. In 2006, due to illness, he made his final move to St Pierre.

Dad was predeceased by his parents, wife Mary, infant son Nicholas, one infant grandson, and grandson David.

Dad will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by his children Roman (Judy), Tony (Denise), Elsie (Reid Runka), and Jarvis (Cindy), five loving grandchildren Michael (Sara), Melissa, Erin, Adam and Glenn, three great-grandchildren Tyler, Brendan, and Anastasia as well as one brother Roman (Sophia) and family living in Ukraine.

He was a devoted parishioner of the Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church in Rosa. His deep voice was heard for many years in the surrounding Ukrainian communities as church Cantor (Dyack). He was extremely proud of his heritage and ensured that his children and grandchildren carry on those traditions.

Dad will always be remembered for the cigarette hanging from his lips, requesting instant kava and his quirkiness with words. Sharing his life stories built bridges between generations. And you could always tell when Dad was joking by the mischievous twinkle in his eye.

Mass was celebrated Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2007 at 10 a.m. at Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church in Rosa with interment at the church cemetery following the service.

In lieu of flowers donations in Mike's memory can be made to the Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church, Cemetery Fund, Rosa, MB.

The family would like to express their sincere thanks to the staff of the DeSalaberry District Health Centre and all his friends that came to visit him. A special thank you to Janine and the staff of the Repos Jolys for your care, support, guidance and most of all for making Dad's last days happy ones.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our son, Kory Riley Edwin Wiebe, Friday, Oct. 19, 2007 at the young age of 17 years old.

With family surrounding his bed, and just one hour and 34 minutes past his 17th birthday, Kory took his last breath here on earth and fell into the arms of Jesus. Even though Kory's time with us was much too short, Kory's happy life was lived to the fullest.

When Kory became very sick Sunday, Oct. 14, 2007, we, as a family, decided that Kory needed to go home. He has been set free of cerebral palsy, seizures and any other pain that he has endured. He is once again whole and joined with his twin brother Kyle, who had previously died while he was still within his mother's womb.

Kory was predeceased by Kyle on Oct. 18, 1990, great grandpa Klaus P. Unger, great-grandmother Nettie Unger, grandpa Edwin Wiebe, grandma Bernice Wiebe and grandpa William Kelly.

Kory leaves behind his loving parents, Riley and Carolyn Wiebe, sister Courtney and brother Brett, his friendly puppies Abbie, Emily, Amiee and Buddy. He also leaves behind his only Nana, Faith Scott, who was there for Kory each step of his life. He is also survived by Papa John Scott, Grandma Eleanor Wiebe, Great-grandmother Helen Hansen, very special Auntie Brenda and Uncle Doug, and cousins Dillan and Kelly Pistun, Uncle Darian and Auntie Helen (Blake, Erica) Wiebe, Auntie Carmelle and Uncle Greg (Shane, Tiffany, Cole) Recksiedler, Uncle Jared and Auntie Terri Lynn (Justin, Brooklynn) Wiebe, and Uncle Jason (Vienna) Wiebe. In addition, he will also be missed by many other relatives and friends.

Kory was born Oct. 18, 1990 in Winnipeg, MB He lived with his family until the age of four, and then moved into his second home at the St Amant Centre. Although Kory did not reside a long time with his family, he enjoyed spending a lot of time with us during home visits. He was so special and loved by all who knew him, including his second "family" at St Amant.

Kory attended St Amant School for many wonderful years. His best subject was music, which he loved, the louder the better. Due to his health, near the end, Kory's last outing was a surprise visit at his Aunt Brenda's and Uncle Doug's home. He celebrated Easter and Nana's birthday with his mother's side of the family. That day was very special to us as we remember it as his last happiest time ever. His cousin Kelly played the piano and Kory was laughing so loud that the sound and expression from him will never be forgotten.

We want everyone to know that he loved his family and friends with all his precious heart and that his happiest moments were spent with those he cherished the most. The family would like to say thank-you to everyone for their prayers and support. Even though Kory had to celebrate his birthday in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, he enjoyed having cake and music with his family and friends.

We would like to extend special thanks to his St Amant family, as without them Kory's life would not have been the same. Thank you's also must go out to Dr. Lipnowski, the Pediatric Special Care Unit, the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Dr. Drew.

Pallbearers are Dillan Pistun, Kelly Pistun, Blake Wiebe, Shane Recksiedler, Tiffany Recksiedler, Cole Recksiedler and Justin Wiebe. Honorary pallbearers are Bernie Wiebe, Doug Pistun, Greg Recksiedler, Jared Wiebe, Jason Wiebe, Erica Wiebe, Brooklynn Wiebe and Vienna Wiebe.

Celebration of Kory's life was held Tuesday, Oct 23, 2007 at 2 p.m. at the Southland Community Church, Steinbach with interment at Heritage Cemetery.

If friends so desire donations may be made to St Amant Centre, 440 River Road, Wpg. R2M 2Z9.

"We love you very much Kory…until we meet again."

Edna faced life and death with assurance of salvation in Jesus Christ who gave His life for her. She trusted Him, served Him, rejoiced in Him, prayed to Him, and even suffered pain if this was God's will for her.

Edna was born to Henry P. and Elizabeth Brandt Mar. 20, 1942. She enjoyed a happy childhood working and playing on the family farm southwest of Blumenort. She attended the Blumenort School.

Due to her mother's ill health Edna took responsibility for many household duties in her early years. When Edna's father remarried in 1968 she faced many difficult adjustments.

Soon after, Edna decided to step out on her own and took a secretarial bookkeeping course at Red River Community College. Later she got a job at the AK Penner office in Blumenort.

When a God given opportunity to learn sign language presented itself, Edna took up the challenge. Little did she realize that these studies would lead her to find her husband and life's partner. On Sept. 25, 1976 she married Levi Thiessen. Their daughter, Annette Lisa Joy, joined the family in 1981. Much later Edna enjoyed her role as grandmother to Kayden and Dylan.

Edna faithfully used her gifts to serve her Lord and church as long as she was able to. Many were encouraged by her friendly smile. Levi and Edna were instrumental in starting the deaf ministry in their church. They were thankful for those who became actively involved with the deaf ministry. Many times Edna interpreted church services for Levi and for the other deaf people who attended church. She also stood by Levi's side daily helping Levi enter into the hearing world and allowing the hearing to enter into Levi's world thru sign language. The nurses marvelled at how well she continued to communicate with Levi, as sick as she was.

Edna was admitted to the hospital June 27 due to pancreatic cancer and passed away Wednesday, Oct. 17.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Levi, daughter Annette, and grandsons Kayden and Dylan. She is also survived by two brothers Peter (Alvera) and Bob (Linda) and their families, as well as by Levi's five brothers and three sisters and their families.

She was predeceased by her mother in 1967, her father in 1984, her stepmother in 1998, a sister-in-law, and two nephews.

We would like to thank our friends and family for all their support through prayer, visits, food, flowers, and cards. Your support has strengthened us in this difficult time. We also thank Dr. Thiessen and the nursing staff at the Bethesda Hospital for their kind and compassionate care.

The funeral service was held at the Blumenort EMC Saturday, Oct. 20 at 2:30 p.m. with interment at the church cemetery.

Arrangements by: Birchwood Funeral Chapel, Steinbach and Winnipeg, MB, 1-888-454-1030 or 346-1030.
