SKOBLACK: Nellie Skoblack passed away on March 11, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. at the Assiniboine Centre in Brandon.
Nellie was born in Ethelbert, MB on January 25, 1911. She spent her early years on a homestead in that area where her parents settled after emigrating from the Ukraine.
Nellie was predeceased by her husband Tom in 1972, six sisters and five brothers. She is survived by three sisters, Stella, Mary and Kay; her daughters Josephine (Galipeau) of Parksville, B.C., Marion (Kelleher) of Thunder Bay, ON and Shirley (Thompson) of Nanaimo, B.C.; five granddaughters, two grandsons, eight great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter and many nieces and nephews.
Nellie was a skilled, self-taught seamstress, her family, friends and many residents of Brandon benefited by those skills. She was an honest, hard-working woman her entire life. She had to accomplish something every day. Her garden, sewing and handicrafts were the joys of her life.
Her family was very important to her. She made her last trip to the West Coast in January of 2009 and was able to have her "five generation" picture taken there – one of her last goals.
She leaves a space in our lives that can never be filled.
It seems so strange that those we need,
and those we love the best,
Are just the ones God called away and
took them home to rest.
But every time we think of them
we seem to hear God say:
"Have faith and trust my promise;
You’ll meet again some day."
The family would like to express their appreciation to the many friends and neighbors who supported her over the years and enabled her to stay in her home to the end. We would also like to thank Dr. Groves and the staff at the Brandon Regional Health Centre and Assiniboine Centre for their thoughtful and tender care.
Cremation took place on March 12, 2009 and a Memorial Service will be held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, on Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 2:30 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Nellie may be made to the Brandon Humane Society, 2200-17th Street East, Brandon, MB, R7A 7M6 or to a charity of choice.

STEWART: Nicole Stewart (née Campion) passed away suddenly in Shilo, Manitoba on December 16, 2008 at the age of 22 years. Nicole Joy Campion was born on March 19th, 1986 in Brandon, Manitoba to parents, Kelly and Greg. She was a busy little girl and talked very early on in her life to the amazement of all around her. Her early years were spent in Pipestone, Boissevain, Brandon, Cross Lake, Treherne and Souris. She was the first grandchild on both sides of her family and her birth brought "joy" into the Campion and Woods households.
Nicole always took the road less travelled. Her zest for life sometimes got her into some sticky situations but she always learned from her actions and rose up as a stronger and wiser young woman. She attended high school in Souris and graduated from Reston High School in 2004. Her future was bright and she headed into Brandon to university but soon realized that her calling was working with small children. She left university to work in a daycare and she began her training in childcare at A.C.C. She loved her job working with children. Her soft heart and unlimited patience with the little ones was her strength and they in turn, loved her.
In 2006, she met Robert Stewart, "Stewie" and had finally met her soul mate. Together they could conquer the world. True to form, Nicole said to her mom one Friday in April, "Robbie and I are going to get married on Monday." She knew what she wanted and when she decided, there was no changing her mind. A beautiful wedding with the people she loved was held that following Monday. Robbie was her best friend and she always said that she had no doubt in her mind that they would be together forever. They both enjoyed the same sense of humor, games, movies and just being together. After they were married, the two of them moved to Shilo, where she took great pleasure in fixing up their home. When Robbie was deployed to Afghanistan, Nicole held their little family together waiting daily for phone calls and preparing for the day her Robbie would return home safely.
Nicole’s greatest triumph in life was the birth of their sweet daughter, Jordyn Kelly Stewart on November 22, 2006. She had found her ultimate calling and she loved being a mom. She was determined to be the best mom in the world and she was so proud of her little girl. The most important thing to Nicole was to spend time with Jordie and they spent literally hours of every single day singing, playing, reading books, drawing and coloring. In an effort to help Jordie learn, Nicole moved their dining room furniture out to the back shed and created a wonderful playroom. Her theory was, "who needed a table and chairs to eat at when you could play all day and have fun picnicking on the floor!!!" Jordyn is and will always be Nicole’s sweet and wonderful legacy.
Nicole was the most thoughtful person and she remembered everyone’s birthday and the whole family could count on a card with some artwork from Jordyn. She went out of her way to keep in touch with her brothers, Ryan and Daris and her grandparents, to make sure they were always kept up with the family news. Nicole loved her family, and enjoyed reminiscing with home videos and pictures of the past and present. She especially loved the holidays and family celebrations when everyone got together. She was so excited and looked forward to this Christmas because Jordie was old enough to understand how special these times were.
Her favorite places to visit were her family farms and the lake. She was very close to her mom and they spent many days puttering around the farm and this summer camping at Oak Lake. She also would take Jordie out with Grandpa Greg to do chores and see the cows. Nicole was proud of her parents and where she came from. She was a real "country girl" at heart. This summer she spent time with Aunt Heather and Uncle Rob, Derek and Taylor and her cousins Emma and Elise at Denolf’s cabin and travelled to Falcon Lake to spend time with Uncle Mike and Aunt Marcie, Amy, Ben and Katie. Nicole and her constant side-kick, Jordie, were beach bums every chance they got!
Nicole loved a challenge and an adventure so, as well, this summer she and Jordyn bravely set out for Calgary, travelling by train and bus to visit Uncle Dale and Aunt Teri, Emma and Elise. She was exhausted but so happy when they returned home from their trip.
Nicole also took great pleasure in being part of the Stewart family. Although they lived a distance away, she kept in touch regularly with Robbie’s mom and dad, Dan and Sharon, through cards and telephone calls. She was especially happy that Rob, herself and Jordie got to spend time with Rob’s brother Chris and wife Lisa along with nieces, Samantha, Erica and Allyssa and many of Rob’s relatives that came out to wish them well at Christmas last year. She also enjoyed spending time with Robbie’s brother Johnny, whom she considered a close friend as well as a brother.
Nicole knew many friends and her photo albums were filled with fond memories, present and past. She was especially close to her best friend Amy and they shared many laughs and tears together. Later on in Shilo, she made some really special friends in Michelle, Jen and Wendy, taking part in bellydancing, swimming and many, many fun "playdates." She will be lovingly remembered as a caring, warm, generous and funny friend.
Nicole will always be remembered for her beautiful smile and her wonderful sense of humor. She was so funny and she could easily find something to laugh at especially if it was something silly she had done herself. She loved the adventure of camping, swimming and being outside during the summer months and tobogganing in the winter. She loved the little things in life and was satisfied and content just to love and be loved.
She had often remarked to family and friends how happy she was and it is a great comfort to her family that in her last years of life she found true love, joy and happiness, things that some people search a lifetime to attain.
She was predeceased by her grandmother, Joy Woods, whom she was very close to as a little girl, as well as her great grandmothers, Reva Campion, Muriel Woods and Vera McDougald and great-grandfather Foster McDougald.
She will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her husband, Robert and baby daughter Jordyn. Her mother and stepfather, Kelly and Reid, her father, Greg and brothers Ryan and Daris, Papa Keith Woods, Grandpa Garth, Grandma Bev Campion and Allan and Gwen Cowieson. She had several aunts and uncles and cousins that she also leaves to mourn her loss including, Mike and Marcie Woods (Amy, Ben and Katie), Dale and Teri Campion (Emma and Elise), Heather and Rob Denolf (Derek and Taylor), Trevor and Sandra Cowieson (Alicia and Kirsten) and Dean Cowieson.
A service of remembrance was held to honor Nicole’s life at the Central United Church on December 23, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Harvey Hurren of Trinity United Church officiating. Interment will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a trust fund set up for Nicole’s daughter, Jordyn, at any R.B.C. Royal Bank, Manitoba location.

BROWN: Ronald Stephen Brown passed away peacefully at his residence, Fairview Home, on Saturday, October, 21, 2006 at the age of 90 years. Ron was born in Edmonton on September 15, 1916 and received his schooling there. He joined the RCMP in 1938 at the age of 22 and throughout his career he saw 35 postings in 14 locations throughout Manitoba and Ontario including Beausejour, Whitemouth, Winnipeg, Treherne, Ottawa, Selkirk, Kenora, Thunder Bay and Portage la Prairie. It was during one of these postings in Winnipeg Beach that he met Angie Russin and they were married December 4, 1947. Ron was a wonderful husband to Angie and father to his four children, Patricia, Reid, David and Stu. Together the family traveled down many roads and now share many wonderful memories of their times with Ron. One of Ron’s favorite postings was to Kenora, Ontario on beautiful Lake of the Woods. Ron purchased a cottage lot on the Lake in 1961 and over the next 40 years lovingly pounded every nail himself producing a wonderful summer home which his family still enjoys today. Ron loved the lake and continued to spend time there well into his 80’s. Ron was a very dignified Mountie and wore the colors proudly. He retired from the RCMP with the rank of Staff Sergeant in 1967 with 30 years service. His final posting was in Portage and from here he moved to Brandon gaining employment with the Manitoba Department of Finance where he worked for 15 years, retiring in 1982. After his retirement Ron was very active with numerous groups including The Manitoba Toastmasters, Masonic Lodge, Canadian Legion and numerous charitable organizations. He was a lifetime member of the RCMP Veterans Association where he embellished his role as Historian keeping meticulous records of current and past RCMP issues. He wrote and published many stories pertaining to the RCMP and all who knew him will no doubt have heard one of his numerous tales that he loved to tell again and again. Ron was awarded the Queens Golden Jubilee Medal in 2004 for his many accomplishments and was an extremely proud and deserving recipient. Ron was a gentle man and loved all animals. He had a special fondness for dogs and horses and after his retirement he enjoyed many years following the Manitoba Harness Racing Association. He was also an avid and enthusiastic curler and was still curling at the age of 85 years. Ron moved into his most recent home at Fairview in August 2004. He was a people person and made many new friends and enjoyed many good times and visits with family during his stay. An unfortunate fall and subsequent hip fracture this past July slowed him somewhat but he modified his routine and remained the dignified and gracious friend and father we all knew. A final highlight for Ron occurred this past September when family gathered to celebrate his 90th Birthday. It was a very happy day for Ron and he enjoyed the festivities with many smiles. Ron was a very loving and devoted husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather and great- grandfather. He set an example of honesty, gentleness, commitment, responsibility and gratefulness that touched all who knew him. He was not only a peacekeeper in his life but also a peace maker. He was very easy going and we always knew his response to anything we asked would be "not bad". Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife Angie of Brandon, daughter Patricia (Peter) and son David (Karen) of Winnipeg, and son Stu (Donna) of Brandon. He is also survived by granddaughters Tracey Falconer (Jordan, Carson & Courtlyn) and April Stevenson (Mike), all of Winnipeg, and by his sister Margaret Rolstone of Victoria, BC. Ron was predeceased by his son Reid in 1953 and by his brothers Les in 2000 and Percy in 2001.

BEEVER: Kenneth (Ken) Beever, beloved husband of Joyce (Dawson), loving father of Kathy of Calgary, and Karen of Winnipeg, passed away peacefully at Fairview Personal Care Home on October 7, 2006 at the age of 83 years. Ken was born in Lincoln, England on August 30, 1923 to Richard and Maude Beever. He moved with his parents to Canada in 1924.

Ken served as a trustee on the local South Brandon School Board before schools amalgamated. From 1972 to 1986, he was a trustee with the Brandon School Board, Division #40. Being a member of the School Board provided Ken with many years of enjoyment, lasting friendships and privileged opportunities. One of Ken’s proudest moments was meeting Princess Anne. Ken was a hardworking man. Despite the constant demands of operating a mixed farm, he would (as much as possible) reserve Sunday as a family day. The family enjoyed drives in the country, swimming and picnics at Souris and Oak Lake, and visiting with friends and neighbours. Ken appreciated the splendor of God’s creatures and would gather the family to take them to his latest discovery. Raccoons in a tree, a mother kill-deer and her young, a porcupine, or fox on the old railway tracks, Ken enjoyed showing his family the beauty of nature and the importance of protecting it. Ken would often "spill" a few oats outside the granaries to help the wild animals get through the winter. Farming and agriculture where very important to Ken. Ill health meant a big change and he and Joyce retired to Brandon in 1987. Ken would make walks to the mall, sometimes two or three times a day. While he liked the fresh air and exercise, he especially enjoyed meeting friends for coffee and chatting with the greeters and clerks in the mall. Other interests were curling, bowling and baseball, his favorite team being the Blue Jays. Ken was well known for his keen sense of humour and quick wit. He was a gentleman, a generous person and a man of good values. He was predeceased by his parents, Richard and Maude Beever and sister, Pauline Mellis. Left to mourn are his wife Joyce and daughters Kathy and Karen Beever. A Celebration of Ken’s Life was held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel on Thursday, October 12, 2006 with Lisa Hammond, Funeral Celebrant, officiating.
