Funeral arrangements by
Chapel Lawn Funeral Home

On July 6, 2004, Evelyn Gertrude Williams passed away peacefully following a brief illness at the Victoria General Hospital. She had reached the age of 91. Evelyn is predeceased by her husband Thomas; parents Charles and Susan Foster; and brothers George, Arthur, Alfred and John. Left to cherish her memory are her sons Jack, Tom and Drew; and daughter Dale. Also surviving are her sisters-in-law Lillian and Bess Foster; along with many nieces and nephews. Evelyn was committed to raising her children and lived as a devoted wife and mother. She volunteered at the Riverview Health Centre Guild and for the A.C.W. at St. Alban’s Church. She also belonged to the Retired People’s Club of the St. Vital Y.M.C.A. and loved spending time with her friends at the bridge club. Evelyn’s parents were members of the original St. Alban’s Church, which her father helped build, and at the time of her passing Evelyn was one of its oldest member. She was very spiritual and always found strength in her belief in Christ. Throughout her life, Evelyn employed an active mind, loving to engage her friends in conversation and ever willing to share her views. Her children will fondly remember the summer holidays spent at Victoria Beach with their mother, who loved picking blueberries, watching the birds and staying on the beach until sunset. We will miss you Mom. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, July 27, 2004 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Alban’s Church, Rathgar and Osbourne. Interment will follow.

Henry Edwin Froese
April 02, 1946 - July 22, 2004
Funeral arrangements by
Chapel Lawn Funeral Home

With deep sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Henry with family members by his side at St. Boniface Hospital on July 22, 2004. On Tuesday April 2, 1946, Henry Edwin Froese became the second of seven sons born to David and Annie (nee Esau) Froese at Concordia Hospital. The family lived on a farm near Sperling, Manitoba where Dad learned the strong work ethic that followed him to the end of his time on Earth. In 1966, he started working as a Carpenter’s Apprentice, he then became a Job Estimator, and later, a Project Manager. His most recent employer was Bird Construction where he had many dear friendships. He was always willing, and eager to make himself available to spend time with his friends and family by going out or hosting gatherings. He was a humble man, full of strong and unwavering faith; always holding fast to his convictions and beliefs. He enjoyed reading books to help him grow as a person and to help enhance his spiritual life. Dad had been a baptized member of Portage Avenue Mennonite Brethren Church since July 13, 1969 where he had always been actively involved, from working with youth programs, to serving on many different committees. You would be hard-pressed to find a room in the church that Dad did not have his hand in at some point. He always believed strongly in the power of servanthood and doing his part wherever possible. Over the years he had always kept himself busy with one thing or another. He loved building things and working with his hands. Even a couple of months before his passing, he said (with a smile), “it would be nice to start a new project … without having to worry about a budget.” A number of years ago, he took up bird carving and won recognition for one of his pieces at a competition. He enjoyed being outdoors, golfing, working on the yard, going to watch the Blue Bombers, and travelling. Dad made many trips to the U.S., Saskatchewan, Toronto, Cuba, and fishing at Eagle Nest Resorts. In April 2004, Dad was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Although he had cause to focus on his own situation, he always prayed for his family and gave thanks to God for the Bible to read and study. He rested on the promises God gave us all to receive, the promises of eternal salvation and the fact that He will never allow us (his children) to endure more than we can handle. One of Dad’s favorite passages was Psalm 23. Henry was taken home to be with his Lord and Saviour at the age of 58, and will be dearly remembered by his sons Doug and Jackie, Jeff and Marcy, and their mother Judith; grandchildren Aaron, Rylie, and David; his parents David and Annie; six brothers and their families. The funeral service will be held at Portage Avenue M.B. Church, 1420 Portage Ave. on Monday, July 26, 2004 at 10:30 a.m. with John Unger and Claude Pratt ministering. Viewing will be Sunday July 25, 2004, 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Chapel, 4000 Portage Ave. Interment will follow the service at the Mennonite Memorial Gardens. Donations may be made to Cancer Care MB or Living Free Ministries. Many thanks to Dr. R. Wong and the staff on the 5th floor at St. Boniface Hospital, PAMB Church, and the many friends and family that prayed and supported him during his illness.

Maurice "Moe" Albert Joseph Hamonic
September 03, 1940 - July 16, 2004
Funeral arrangements by
Chapel Lawn Funeral Home

With heavy heart, I announce the untimely passing of my cherished husband, Maurice, on July 16, 2004 at 9:12 a.m., at the Winnipeg Health Science Centre, after a courageous three and a half year battle with the complications of advanced prostate cancer. Maurice suffered a stroke on the evening of July 15. He was surrounded by his loving family at his bedside and the incredible spirit and prayers of so many special friends as he began his next journey. His memories will be cherished by his loving wife, Joyce; his sisters Gertrude Hamonic Desharnais, Winnipeg; Jeannine and husband Jack Henderson, South Africa; brother Henri and wife Madeleine, St. Malo; nephews Sean Henderson, Robert Gobeil, Lucien Hamonic and niece Joele (Gerry) Friesen; great nieces, Jessica and Amber Friesen; loving mother in law Lena Kelm, Winnipeg; sister in law Bettiann Kelm (Barry Baker), Calgary; brother in law Ernie Kelm, Ottawa and Ernie's sons Greg, Quebec City, Jeff (Catherine), Ottawa, their mother Yvette Kelm, Regina; and a large circle of friends and relatives. He was predeceased by his parents Marguerite and Robert Hamonic and brothers in law Kenneth Kelm and Henri Desharnais. Maurice was born in Winnipeg on September 3, 1940 and was raised in La Rochelle, St. Malo and Moose Jaw. He received a bilingual education in Manitoba. He was Marguerite and Robert's oldest child and the first grandchild of the Breton and Hamonic families. His four proud grandparents came from Brittany, France. We were married in St. Mary's Cathedral in Winnipeg, on August 2, 1969. We spent almost thirty five wonderful years of marriage in love, devotion, friendship and partnership. We built and moved to our home (the North 40) in Headingley in 1975. Maurice loved life and nature. He gardened (especially multiplier onions, tomatoes, and roses), whipped around on his garden tractors, tended his many bird feeders and bird baths, barbecued summer and winter and rested and read sports news on the decks and in the sunroom - all the while fending off the deer, rabbits and squirrels!!! He loved the magic of Christmas and delighted in sharing this spirit with his neighbors by decorating the stately evergreens in his front yard with literally hundreds of lights each December. Indoors, he set up his miniature village, purchased poinsettias and decorated the family tree. Maurice enjoyed spirited gatherings of family and friends. He helped shop, chop, wash, and cook for so many “feasts”. Our home was filled with so much love and laughter. Travel, camping and holidays also gave us many happy moments. We travelled across Canada many times, the U.S, Hawaii, Barbados and Great Britain twice. Our trip to Ireland and England in 2002 was great! Before our marriage he had travelled to Africa and Europe. Maurice had a varied working career. He served in the Armed Forces, worked on the Northern DEW line and in home entertainment and hardware sales for many years. Here he made life long relationships. Larry, Mike, Don, and Barry at BDM, you were a great team! Maurice was a sports enthusiast-hockey, baseball, golf, football!!! He attended three baseball spring training camps in the U.S and played in an old time hockey tournament in Arizona. Last year's trip to Florida with Wally and Bob was a great time!. Many happy competitive hours were spent on his hockey pools. He faithfully checked the Internet at 6:30 a.m. for the hockey results. Moe is now busily organizing hockey pools in heaven! Maurice was a friend, a gentleman, a giver - an all star! Friendship was his hobby! His kind nature, infectious laugh, joie de vivre and positive attitude to life were easy to return. His inner fortitude and faith in God shone through even through his illness. Remembering him is so easy, but missing him is so hard! The support and unity of his many friends at his Thursday breakfast group and in the H and H group throughout his lifetime meant so much to us. The hockey awards you gave him, Rookie of the Year, Most Improved Player, Best Defense Player, “Fighter” of the Year when he was first diagnosed with cancer and the Do Right Award this May were always on display in our family room. They touched his heart and soul! The acts of kindness by our family (especially Bettiann), friends, neighbours (especially the Johnstons), the medical staff and Father Barry Schoonbaert are deeply appreciated. I sincerely thank Tom Townsend, a long standing friend, for delivering Maurice's Funeral Eulogy and for all his computer aid throughout the years so Maurice could run his hockey pools so effectively. In lieu of flowers, should friends so desire, donations may be made for a park bench in the Assiniboine Park in Maurice's honour. Moe spent many hours of enjoyment and reflection here especially during his illness, Maurice Hamonic Park Bench Account, Bank of Montreal Charleswood Centre. At Maurice's request cremation has taken place. Funeral liturgy will be held on Thursday, July 22, 2004 at 1:00 pm at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, 4588 Roblin Blvd (parking access from Grant) with Father Barry Schoonbaert officiating. Interment will take place at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens following the reception. “.... Hey, who blew out the candle? 'Don't be afraid', said Death, 'It was only a draft from the door. Come outside and pick yourself a star” G. Sewell Arrangements entrusted to: CHAPEL LAWN FUNERAL HOME CREMATION AND RECEPTION CENTRE 885-9715
