James "Jim" McKenzie Adams
June 12, 1923 - February 04, 2005
Funeral arrangements by
Chapel Lawn Funeral Home

With great sorrow we announce the peaceful passing of Jim on February 4 with his family at his side after a courageous fight with lung disease and cancer. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his mother Velma Irene; wife Irene and their daughter Melanie (Jeremy) and grandchildren Danielle, Brittany and Gavin; son Jim (Corrine) and grandchildren Aaron, Marshall and Tessa; daughter Penny (Rick); sister Luella - Tiny as he called her (Jack); foster daughter Joy-Ann (Preston); sister-in-laws, nieces & nephews, extended family and numerous friends. He was predeceased by his father, brother Dean and most recently his mother-in-law Anne, brother-in-law Mike and grand-nephew Liam. Jim was born in Winnipeg on June 12, 1923 and grew up in Regina. At age 7 the family moved to St. Elizabeth where he got his introduction to softball as batboy for the local team his father managed - so began his lifetime love of the sport. In 1936, the family moved back to Winnipeg where Jim completed his education and on June 17, 1942 he enlisted in the RCAF serving his country until Sept. 8, 1945, including overseas duty during the Second World War. After the war, he worked as an electrician's helper - then started his career with Transport Canada Air Services where he retired after 35 years of service. His work afforded him the opportunity to travel extensively throughout Western Canada, NW Ontario and the Arctic. Sports were a large part of Jim's life. Softball was the sport of choice and he dedicated many years as a participant, coach, builder and fan. He was President of the Winnipeg Men's Industrial Fastball League and Softball Manitoba and was very proud of his inductions into the Softball Manitoba, Softball Canada and Manitoba Sports Halls of Fame. He was the first Honorary Life Member of Softball Manitoba and until his illness progressed, was actively involved on the Board of The Manitoba Softball Hall of Fame and Museum. He cherished the many friends he made while involved in the sport. His greatest happiness in his later years was his relationship with his beloved grandchildren and he took great pride in their accomplishments. He appreciated each of them for their uniqueness and the joy they brought to his life. Jim was a man who lived and died on his own terms. He was a firm believer that you put back into life what you receive. His friendly nature, helpful ways and unique sense of humor endeared him to many people, not to mention the pocketful of "Worthers" he always carried around to share. The family would like to thank all the medical staff who cared for him during his illness. Our special thanks to his home nurse, Dale, for her care and compassion. In respect of his wishes, there will be no formal service. Cremation has taken place and he will be laid to rest in the family plot at Chapel Lawn at a later date, along side his beloved father and brother Dean. In lieu of flowers, donations to any children's amateur sport group or community club would be appreciated. We will miss you and cherish forever the beautiful memories you left us. Rest in Peace Grandpa - We Love You Arrangements entrusted to: CHAPEL LAWN FUNERAL HOME CREMATION AND RECEPTION CENTRE 885-9715

Funeral arrangements by

It is with deep sorrow and regret that we announce the peaceful passing of our dear Mom and Nana on Monday, January 31, 2005 at the Grace General Hospital. She was predeceased by her husband Dennis; her parents; and sisters Joyce and Wilma. Irene leaves to mourn, her son Dennis and his wife Lynn; grandchildren Kimberley and Cameron of Vancouver, BC; daughter Donna and her husband Tom; and grandchildren Tom and Dan of Winnipeg.

It was in Winnipeg that she met and married Dennis, her loving husband for 47 years. She worked at the Hudson Bay Company and in later years worked as a Beauty Councillor of Canada representative, a Welcome Wagon Hostess and then Sears at the catalogue department. In her youth, Irene was extremely active and though she slowed down somewhat in later years, she always had a real smile and loved a good time. Mom’s greatest pleasure was being surrounded by her family and friends. Mom was devoted to her family and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. God saw you getting tired When a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you, And whispered, “Come with Me.” We would like to thank the staff and her friends at the Westhaven on Portage Avenue where Mom spent the last 15 years of her life. These people became her “extended family” and made her life a real joy. We would also like to thank Dr. Colin Fletcher of the Assiniboine Clinic for helping Mom attain a good quality of life over the past several years. Our thanks as well to the nursing staff on the 2nd floor of the Grace Hospital for the care and compassion they gave Mom in her final days. Memorial service will be held on Friday, February 4, 2005 at 12:30 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Avenue. According to Mom’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private interment will be held at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens at a later date. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations may be made to the Manitoba Lung Association, 629 McDermot Ave, Winnipeg, MB R3A 1P6 or a charity of one’s choice.

In 1964, she and Andrew moved to Winnipeg. To her grandchildren, she was “Baba” and to her great-grandchildren, she was “Ganzee”. She kept us well supplied with perogies and woolen slippers. She loved being with friends and family - dancing, singing or playing cards. Because of Alzheimer’s disease, we slowly faded from her memory, but we will never forget our mother, “Baba”, and “Ganzee” and her love for us. Cremation has taken place and a service in celebration of her life will be held in June 2005 in Thalberg, MB. A further notice will follow.

Funeral arrangements by

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of our father and friend, Dr. Gordon Reeves on January 29, 2005. Born to Frank and Caroline Reeves, Gordon was predeceased by his loving wife Florence and his elder sister Margaret (Peggy) Christianson of LeSueur, Minnesota. He leaves to mourn his sons Robert (Shari), of Penticton, BC and James (Susan) of Winnipeg, and his beloved grandson, Landon (BC). Upon graduation form the College of Optometry of Ontario in 1938, Gordon began a career of service in that profession in Winnipeg which lasted until his retirement in 1988. During that time, he dutifully applied his skills for the betterment of the vision of a multitude of people and worked as well in the service of Manitoba Optometry. His legacy will not be forgotten. An avid golfer, Gordon was a longtime member of Southwood Golf and Country Club and leaves many buddies there. His work as an amateur photographer produced images that have graced the walls of the Smithsonian Institution and many a friend's wedding album. Above all, Gordon loved people. At Gordon's request, a private family service will be held and internment will take place at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens, 4000 Portage Avenue. Friends who wish to honour his life are asked to make a donation to the charity of their choice in his name.
