Tamara "Martha" Yurkiwski
May 12, 1923 - September 30, 2004
Funeral arrangements by
Glen Eden Funeral Home (Winnipeg)

In memory of a loving wife, mother, grandmother who passed away tragically.

Left to mourn her passing are her husband William of 57 years; her daughters, Anne Marie Bell and Vicky Evans (Terry Ryder); and her granddaughters, Tamara and Larissa Evans; her sole surviving sister Rita Pauls (Henry); her many nieces and nephews and many friends.

Tamara was predeceased by her loving son Tony in 1997; and her sisters, Anne Woelke, Helen Eck and Maria Wiebe; and her four brothers.

Tamara was born in Ukraine on May 12, 1923 - the seventh child of nine children. In 1950, Tamara moved to Old Kildonan where she lived until her death. Tamara and William started and successfully ran a family business - McPhillips Construction Ltd. for over 30 years. Our mother loved to cook and bake - there was always a place at her table and in her heart for all who came. In the summer, her favourite times were spent in the garden and yard. A stroke in 2001 slowed her down temporarily and her "feisty" nature had her back in the garden within a month. A life filled with numerous hardships didn't diminish her indomitable spirit and she will be remembered as - always active, always caring, always giving.

Our thanks to the attending police and Health Sciences Centre emergency staff.

I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one, I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done, I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days, I'd like the tears of those who grieve to dry before too long, And cherish those very special memories to which I belong.

Visitation will be Monday, October 4 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the chapel of Glen Eden Funeral Home, 4477 Main St. Funeral service to be held on Tuesday, October 5 at 2:00 p.m. also in the chapel. Interment at Glen Eden Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 200-6 Donald St., Winnipeg, MB R3L 0K6.

Grant Earl Yetman
June 03, 1955 - August 06, 2004
Funeral arrangements by
Glen Eden Funeral Home (Winnipeg)

Sadly on Friday August 6th 2004 the passing of Grant Earl Yetman drastically altered the lives of so many people. Grant was a wonderful and generous person who took pride in absolutely everything that he did. This included the family business Yetman’s Ltd. where he worked endless hours to ensure that everything was running smoothly. There is not an employee there that does not care for him and respect him. He was also a devoted member of St. John’s Sportsmens Club and took great pride in doing the cabin bookings and being involved with the club and all of its great members.

Daddy loved to spend his extra time building jumps for my sport, equestrian so the other riders and I could continue to improve. Daddy had a dream of watching me compete at Spruce Meadows. Grant was such an amazing man who is loved and always will be loved by anyone who had the honour of getting to know him.

Grant has had so many positive and amazing influences in so many peoples lives; always encouraging dreams and goals no matter how far-fetched they may seem, and having faith and encouraging words when those dreams seemed so far away. He never gave up on anything or anyone, and you could count on him for absolutely anything and he would never let you down. He was an extraordinary person and not to mention he was the best father, husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend that anybody could ever have dreamed of. He loved more than anything spending time with his family whether it was on a vacation in Florida, fishing in the Whiteshell with his dad or just sitting at home talking about anything there was to talk about. Grant will forever be missed by so many people.

Grant is survived by his loving wife Mona, daughter Jaclyn (or J.R. as he liked to say), and family dog Lacey. As well as his two wonderful parents Earl and Dolores, brothers Norman (Lynne), and Keith, “L’il Sis” Carolyn (Mark), and his nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. He is predeceased by his brother Glenn, grandparents George and Norah Yetman and Norman and Doris Olson, Uncle Glenn, mother-in-law Freda, and brother-in-law Kas.

Daddy ‘O’, you have a smile and laugh that could light up the very darkest of my days. You are beautiful. I love you and miss you so much. You are the best Daddy in the world and you always will be. I will forever remember all the good times that we had together and I’ll look forward to more. You’re my hero and I love you. We all love you.XOXOXOXOXO (the X’s can be hugs and the O’s can be kisses, just how you like it.)

Celebration of life will be held Thursday August 12th 2004, 2:00pm at Glen Eden Funeral Home, 4477 Main Street with Reverend Debbie Voss officiating. Honorary pallbearers will be Norman and Keith Yetman, Mark Rozmus, Geoff and Carl Olson, Brent Michaleski, Wayne Hinkel, and Larry Stefishen.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to: The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 6 Donald Street, Suite 200, Winnipeg Manitoba, R3L 0K6. Memorial Fund Atlantic-Garden City United Church, 725 Atlantic Ave, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R2W 0S6 Or a charity of your choice.
