Stuart Cruickshank Milne

Stuart Milne passed away Sunday Evening, December 7, 2008 with his family by his side. Stuart had a fulfilling long life and enjoyed all it had to offer.

Stuart was born August 16, 1917 in his parent’s home in the Mekiwin District. His parents were Tom and Lile Milne. He had one sister Kathleen and one brother Ken.

Growing up on the farm, he attended Ayr School to grade eight. Many cousins, aunts and uncles were part of the community. He began working on the farm at a very young age and his appreciation and natural ability working with horses and any animals was a lifelong gift.

Stuart served in World War II in the Lord Strathcona Horse Regiment from 1943 to 1945. He served in England Mediterranean Forces and North-West Europe, countries of North Africa, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium and Holland.

He returned home to the farm at Mekiwin. Shortly after, he met the love of his life, Margaret Griffith. They were married on March 30, 1952. They had one daughter Karen. Margaret became ill with cancer when Karen was very young. Even though their time together was only to be 15 years, they crowded much joy and good times into these years. They were surrounded by good friends and a large family.

During these years, they were involved in the Mekiwin and Keyes Communities. Dad was a Board Member of the Manitoba Pool Elevator at Helston, Chairman and Elder of the Mekiwin United Church, Chairman of the Ayr School Board and also Member of the Keyes Community Club. He was a Member of the Gladstone Legion #110 for 40 years, served a two-year term as President and was Service Officer for a number of years. He was also part of the Colour Party for many years. He was very proud to be a Legion Veteran and appreciated his many friends in his club. His grandchildren often teasingly referred to the Legion Clubroom as his Office. He received his Lifetime Membership in 1998.

Stuart remained on the farm and raised Karen. In 1996 he moved to Whitelark Manor in Gladstone. Here he enjoyed 12 years of town living and his was a second home to his grandchildren while they were going to school. He loved to bake and often shared his buns and cookies with neighbours. Due to his failing health he was moved to Third Crossing Manor in January 2008. Here he adjusted to a new lifestyle again. He enjoyed and appreciated the staff and the excellent care they gave him. He also appreciated visits from friends and family. This meant a lot to him, especially these past few months.

His biggest pleasure was his grandchildren. He was their greatest fan. He rarely missed any of their events and became “Grandpa” to many friends over the years. He was at all their 4-H competitions, horse shows, rodeos, band concerts, and the list could go on. He taught them many life lessons by example and was very patient, open-minded and could relate to all age groups.

He loved jokes and had a great sense of humour, loved dancing, camping and just being with people.

He was so happy to see Gladstone’s 125th, his 90th birthday and his first grandchild’s wedding.

He was predeceased by his parents; Tom and Lile Milne; his beloved wife Margaret; sister Kay; brother Ken; parents-in-law Bill and Hazel Griffith; brothers and sisters-in-law Peter and Jean Hunter, Wib and Bernice Smith, Lionel Welbourne, Doug Kitson; and all his Milne cousins as well as nephew’s Danny Griffith and Randy Smith.

He will be greatly missed by his daughter Karen and Keith Lambert; grandchildren Chas, Holly-Lee, Stuart & Marianne and Zane; brother and sisters-in-law Doug and Jean Griffith, Joyce Welbourne and Joan Kitson, along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Funeral service was held in the Gladstone Fellowship Church, with Pastor Randy Fehr officiating. Family came in lead by Dan Jardine playing the Scottish Bag Pipes.
