Ruth Violet Block

Mom went to be with her Lord and Savior, with her children beside her at the Neepawa Hospital on June 3, 2008.

Mom was born January 19, 1928 in the Tupper District of Manitoba. Mom married her sweetheart Ernie on May 23, 1953 in Plumas. Mom and Dad then moved to Winnipeg where their 3 children were born. In July 1967 we all moved to the farm in Ogilvie. Here they enjoyed raising their children and loved being back surrounded by their families. After dad died in 2003, mom moved a year later into Plumas. Mom always enjoyed going back to the farm though.

Mom’s hands were always busy – in the vegetable and flower gardens, doing farm work, baking, cooking and sewing. She dearly loved her children and grandchildren. Times we spent together were always special. Mom was an active, faithful Lutheran her whole life. She was a great example to us and kept us always in her prayers. Mom’s faith was strong and carried her through her fights with cancer.

Left to cherish her memory are her children and grandchildren Cynthia Tretiak, Allison & Nick Sirdar, Pamela Tretiak, Alden & Darcine Block, Joshua Block, Susan Kenny-Tarrant & Ken Tarrant, Christopher, Nicole & Jonathan Kenny. Mom is also survived by sister-in-law Irene Besser; brother-in-law Richard Block; as well as several nieces and nephews.

May (Maisie) Emily Lewis

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Maisie Lewis, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend, at the Third Crossing Manor, Gladstone on Thursday, June 12, 2008.

She was predeceased by her parents Fred & Daisy Williams; brother Gordon; sister Freda Nelson; parents-in-law Albert & Elizabeth Lewis; brother-in-law Bennett Lewis and Wes Nelson.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband of 57 years, Fred; her children Carol (Bill) Main of Victoria Beach, Eleanor (Doug) Harrison of Winnipeg and Ken (Nancy) Lewis of Gladstone; grandchildren Kim (Erik) Dickson, Scott, Sharla (Bryan) Zelmer, Melanie, Andrew and Karleigh; sisters Grace (Russell) Strath; three nieces, two nephews and their families.

Maisie was born in Elkhorn, Manitoba on May 14, 1925. She received her education in Elkhorn and went on to receive her teacher training at the Winnipeg Provincial Normal School. She taught in rural schools near Brandon, Oak Lake, Minnedosa and Gladstone. It was at Golden Stream that Maisie met and married Fred Lewis. They were blessed with three children. In 1952 they moved to Reston where they farmed for 12 years. They returned to Gladstone where Maisie taught at Golden Stream from 1964 – 1968 and then Gladstone Elementary until her retirement in 1980.

Her personal life philosophy was “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well” and “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This was evident in her everyday life.

Mom enjoyed music and sang in the church choir for many years. She was an active member of the U.C.W. and served on the church board. She and Fred enjoyed square dancing and traveled extensively to attend functions in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario. Maisie loved gardening and shared her produce and flowers with others. Maisie and Fred spent many hours visiting and sharing baking with seniors, those who were ill and those who had lost loved ones. Her greatest joy was attending any activity in which her grandchildren were involved. Animal pets, Lassie and Tiger were very dear to her heart too.

We would like to thank the Doctors and staff at the Seven Regions Health Care Unit and staff at Third Crossing Manor for the excellent care and compassion given to our wife and mother. Also thanks to Valerie Emerson, JoAnn Beavington and the palliative care workers, Betty Cogar, and the home care staff for all of their caring support over the course of Maisie’s illness. Thanks to Donna Cymbalist for taking such good care of Lassie and Tiger during Maisie’s illness and taking Lassie to visit her in hospital and Third Crossing Manor. All of your help over the past months has been greatly appreciated.

A celebration of Maisie’s life was held on Friday, June 20, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. in the Gladstone United Church with Rev. Ian Olive officiating. Interment followed in the Gladstone Cemetery.

Dad was involved in the community as a member of the Lions Club, the Katrime Cemetery Committee and the United Church. He attended the Saturday morning breakfasts with the church men. Dad is remembered as a gentle soul, a kind, generous, friendly man who always had a smile, a wave and time to talk.

Stanley Borden (Dick) Carrothers

With sadness we announce the passing of Stanley Borden (Dick) Carrothers, husband , father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend at Gladstone Hospital on Saturday, June 28th 2008.

Dick was predeceased by his parents Tom and May Carrothers, daughter Donna Lee Slous, Father in law, Howard (Freda)McLaren , son in law Gordon Slous, Brothers Donald, Eldon, Leslie, Louis and sisters Isabel Enta, Violet Wright, brother in law. Harold Boughton, King Enta, Tommy Wright, Lionel McLaren. Sister in law, Joan Carrothers, Leone McLaren, Jean McLaren. Nephew Rick Mc Dougall and niece Pat Lindstead.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 61 years, Lillace, His children Pat Weber (Frank) of Gladstone & Jim Carrothers (Bev Taylor) of Stony Plains Alberta. Grandchildren Dale (Sue) Slous , Lori (Rick) Demeter, Boyd (Joyce) Slous, Dawn (Rob) Yaschuk. Shawn Weber, Heidi Nowicki ( Steve Nilsson), Nicole (Kayhan) Unal, Katherine Weber, Steven & Megan Carrothers, brothers Cliff (Gladys), Clarence (Marie), sisters Vera Hay and Grace Boughton. Great grand children Melissa, Andrea, Mitchell, Sara & Clayton Demeter, Kara & Stephen Slous, Gordon Yaschuk, Randi Jeanne & Jenna Nowicki, Selen & Taylan Unal, & Justin Weber as well as many nieces & nephews and their families.

Dick was born at home on the family farm, on the present day site of The Manitoba Agricultural Museum on October 1st 1917. He was the fifth of eleven children.

He received his education at Austin and then continued to farm alongside his parents.

In January 1942, Dick joined the army along with brothers Cliff and Les and was stationed overseas with the Canadian 3rd Division. He was part of the D-Day invasion of Normandy at Juno Beach driving an armoured halftrack delivering supplies to the front lines. He had many close calls with death but said he always had a guardian angel on his shoulder. He made many close friends in England, Holland, and Belgium but his letters were always filled with thoughts of home.

On October 6th 1946 he and Lillace McLaren were married and they moved into a little house he built on their land just east of His parents. He grew grain and had a herd of shorthorn cattle for many years.

He was a good dad, patient and quiet. He was an avid reader all his life.

For a while in the fifties Dick worked in Winnipeg for Sasaki Industries in St. Vital, alongside his brother in law and good friend King Enta, renovating restaurants and cottages. They would drive to Winnipeg early on Monday and return home to family for weekends. During this time in Winnipeg he also became a volunteer with the St. Johns Ambulance.

In the sixties he worked for Andy Giesbrecht building houses on location and to move. He also enlarged and renovated their own house and he and Lillace turned their yard into a park like setting. He liked to garden and planted thousands of evergreens over the years.

During the eighties Dick worked for Glen Thompson as his hired man. He worked harder until he was 75 than many a younger man and really enjoyed it.

Through the years, before the war and after, he was an avid hockey player and alongside his brothers Cliff and Clarence and later on Lou they made a formidable crew. Later, once son Jim was into Hockey, Dick coached the local teams and always encouraged his teams to play fair. Hockey was a big part of our family life. So was hunting season and every year brought big hunting parties to the house. Cousins Bill and Don McDougall were always there as well as Terry Tomlinson. On his 70th birthday he went antelope hunting in Wyoming with Jim and Don and for a while in the seventies he and Jim worked at Leaf Rapids as carpenters. Those times hunting, fishing, working and storytelling with the boys were real highlights in his life.

He had a strong sense of right and wrong. How many times did we hear him say, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” He also said, “ If we can’t help our seniors then we’re not much good are we?” Dad could always be counted on to help when needed. Family and friends were important to him. He had a keen sense of humour and the conversations around the kitchen table were special times. He loved the grandchildren and always had jars of pennies and smarties for them. They in turn helped keep him young with their energy.

In his spare time he learned to build furniture. We will treasure those things he made for us and pass them on.

For forty years Dick never saw or needed a doctor for ill health. Then in his seventies he had an operation for three aneurysms. The doctor said it would give him ten more good years and it did. Then he had a stroke and needed to learn to walk again, so he spent one summer working hard at Shoal Lake doing therapy. Veterans were able to help him with mobility aids and he returned home using a walker.

While in Carberry Hospital he fell and broke his hip, shoulder and back which made it necessary for him to move to the Care home. These past four and a half years, while difficult for him gave family lots of time to visit and let him know how much we loved him. He would always say, “I love you more.” It was the long goodbye.

Thank you to the staff at Third Crossing for your good care of our Dad and husband these past four and a half years and for the care and concern shown by the staff at the hospital this past week. Special thanks to Margaret White and Lois Lees for your comforting words and compassion at the time of his passing. We really appreciate all you did.

Cremation has taken place and funeral service was held in the Austin United Church on Saturday, July 5, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. Burial followed in the family plot at Austin Cemetery.

If friends so desire, memorial donations can be made to the Austin Community Hall Building fund or the charity of your choice.

Clarke's Funeral Home, Gladstone in care of arrangements.
