Margaret Lorraine Beatty

It is with deepest sadness that Margaret’s family announce her passing on Saturday, May 16, 2009. She left us quietly on her 81st birthday after a long brave struggle with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. She was a loving wife and mother who will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Margaret was born May 16, 1928 in the Pine Creek District and received her education at the Elwood School. She then worked for a time as a Nurse’s Aid in the Portage Hospital with her sister Jean. She later worked as a hairdresser in Portage. After her marriage to Robert, they farmed at Helston and Margaret continued her hairdressing and Barbering from home. Margaret loved picking berries, playing crib and gardening. She was a wonderful cook and enjoyed being outside helping run the farm. She adored all her grandchildren and they adored her as did everyone who knew her.

Margaret was predeceased by her parents Alex and Agnes Livingstone; brothers Mervin, Jo (Marje) and Walter and sisters Olga (Leonard) Kennedy and Jean (Murray) Garychuk.

She is survived by her husband of 51 years Robert Edwin Beatty; daughter Evelyn (Tom) Wyatt of Penticton, BC and their children Caroline and David; Son Glen (Judy) Beatty of Medicine Hat, AB and their children Megan and Laurel; granddaughter Chelsie Ferguson of Winnipeg, MB; brothers Harold Livingstone of MacGregor MB and Ernie (Donna) Livingstone of Chilliwack, BC; sisters Edna (Harold) Rosling of Gladstone, MB and Grace (Bill) Lunn of Waham, AB. She is also survived by a large extended family of nieces, nephews and cousins.

Special thanks to her loving sister Edna Rosling, dear friend Sian Pollard, neighbour Edna Smith, and Dr. Berman Wong who took such good care of our mom.

A memorial Service was held on Monday, May 25, 2009 at 2:00 pm at the Gladstone United Church with Sandra Rex officiating. Interment took place in the Gladstone Cemetery prior to the service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society, 10-120 Donald St, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 9Z9, or to the Parkinson Society Manitoba, 171 Donald St, Suite 302, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 1M4.

Amy Leigh Wilson

Amy Leigh Wilson became the light of our lives the moment she arrived. She was born on September 7th 1987, fittingly on Labour Day. She became the heart and soul of the family and we were so blessed to have her with us.

Perhaps the defining moment in Amy’s childhood was the diagnosis of leukemia in December 1990 at the age of three. Amy fought a courageous battle against the cancer that culminated in the successful bone marrow transplant in February 1995. Amy was declared cancer free in the years that followed, indicating what a strong fighter she was.

Although she was growing into a beautiful young woman, Amy remained a child at heart. She had an extensive collection of stuffed animals and so very much enjoyed the company of children. This led to her decision to embark on a career in children’s education. In December 2007, Amy graduated from Assininboine Community College with her Level II diploma in Early Childhood Education. From there she landed her dream job, working with children at the Crestview Park Day Nursery, where she had worked for the last 14 months.

Amy loved to spend time with her family. Whenever there was a gathering of relatives, whether large or small, Amy always wanted to be there to visit. Socializing and chatting with her relatives, both old and young, was a fun time for Amy. Her love for children could frequently be seen at family gatherings when she was playing with the youngsters in attendance. She was a member of the Gladstone 4-H Handiworkers for ten years and held all executive positions during that time. Her favourite project was woodworking and in her final level of woodworking, she built her own futon.

Amy enjoyed travelling and she had the opportunity to go to Disneyworld as a youngster, to Sylvan Lake, Alberta for a family reunion, and to Quebec, Alberta and BC on school trips. Her last adventure was a cruise to Alaska with her family as a graduation present.

Music was a big part of her life. She would sing to herself when she was doing the dishes or driving in her car. She also used her favourite songs as a backdrop to a video presentation of her life as a gift to her parents.

While not the most athletic person you would ever have known, Amy did enjoy watching Goldeyes baseball games and cheering on her favourite curlers, especially Kevin Martin’s rink. She was an animated couch curler and would jump up in excitement whenever the rink she was cheering made a great shot.

Amy’s friends were always very important to her. As Amy spent time in a number of cities and towns in Manitoba, (Gladstone, Brandon, Neepawa, Dauphin and Winnipeg) she developed friendships in each of the various locations. Many a weekend would be spent driving around in someone’s vehicle. Amy would generally be assigned the navigator role, which likely explains why these road trips ended up with the gang getting lost.

Amy would stay in touch with these friends and her mom and aunt using the technology of the day - Facebook and texting on her ever present cellphone.

Amy was a kind and generous person who was fond of giving surprise gifts. She would frequently overspend the budget she and her aunt had set up because she wanted to buy someone a special gift. A maxed out credit card became the norm but it was worth it to Amy to see the delight in the eyes of the other person when they opened her gift.Her caring nature was also evident as she volunteered at Third Crossing Manor from grade 7 to grade 12.

Amy’s final battle began on March 6th when she was admitted to hospital with pneumonia. During the period she was in recovery she thought about her kids at the day care and commented how much she missed them. Ultimately, however, the pneumonia returned and despite a valiant and difficult fight, she slipped away with her family by her side and her mother and aunt holding her hands.

Left to cherish her memory are her parents Roxy & Gordon Hayward of Gladstone and Brent Wilson of Neepawa; her grandparents Earl & Audrey Clayton of Gladstone and Adeline Newell of Neepawa; her aunts and uncles Debbie & Harold Dueck of Winnipeg, Barb Graham and Ron Brautigam of Hudson Hope, BC and Richard & Sylvia Hayward of Gladstone; her closest friends Shayna Nicholson and Justin Nichol; as well as many other great-aunts and uncles and lots of second cousins.

Amy was predeceased by her uncle Cam Clayton; her grandparents Kenneth Wilson, Arnold Newell, and Vic & Marg Hayward. She was also predeceased by many great-aunts, uncles and cousins.

The family thanks everyone for their thoughts and prayers during Amy’s battle as well as the thoughtful comments, cards and gestures, especially the hugs, through this difficult time. So many people have done such wonderful things for Amy throughout her lifetime that they can’t all be recounted here.

Our lives have been truly blessed by the 21 years we had with her. We are broken-hearted to have to carry on without her and we hope she has found a place where she is free from pain and suffering.

Thank you for your presence here today to honour Amy.

Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday, May 27, 2009 at 2:00 pm in the Gladstone Christian Fellowship Church with Rev. Ian Olive officiating. Pallbearers will be Justin Nichol, Darrin Cook, Don Sawchuk, Dwight Anderson, Drew Clayton and Dean Clayton. Interment will take place in the Gladstone Cemetery.

Verla May Lloy

It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Verla May Lloy at her residence in Neepawa, on Tuesday, May 26, 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Verla was born on May 19, 1930 in the Clarkesville District, at the home of her aunt Beatrice Wagar, a nurse and midwife. She was the second youngest of seven children born to Bert & Iva (Wagar) Eros of the Polonia District.

Following the accidental death of her father in 1935, her mother and the four youngest children moved to Neepawa in July, 1936, where Verla began her education at Neepawa Central School and graduated from Neepawa Collegiate in 1947. She began work as a secretary for local lawyer Jack A. Davidson, a job she thoroughly enjoyed, remaining in that position until her marriage to Ervine Lloy of Gladstone in 1949.

The couple lived on his farm for the next 15 years during which time their three sons Brian, Murray & Kevin were born. In 1964 Ervine accepted the position of Community Pasture Manager for P.F.R.A. at Ethelbert, MB and in 1974 at McCreary Community Pasture where they remained until his retirement in 1994. After a short stay in Neepawa they returned to Gladstone in 1996.

Verla was predeceased by her parents; infant brother Gerald; son Murray; brothers Ray (Ruby) and Elvin (Millicent); sister Hazel (Axel) Frosst; sisters in law Marge Eros, Jean (Ed) Brown and Dora (Ken) Hallas; in laws Ed & Mary Belle Lloy, brother in law Ted Lloy.

Left to mourn are husband Ervine; sons Brian (Jean) and Kevin (Monica); sister Irene Macdonald; brother Willard; brothers in law Jim (Jean) Lloy, Don (Vicky) Lloy; sister in law Joyce Lloy; grandchildren Clinton Lloy, Michelle (Blair) Ferguson, Steven Mulholland and Justin Lloy; great grandchildren Danica, Sciera and Taylor Lloy, Ryan and Grace Ferguson as well as numerous nieces, nephews and many friends.

Verla was a faithful wife, a loving and caring mother. She enjoyed her grandchildren & great grandchildren even though they were apart in distance. She loved to bake for them and often said she wanted the family to remember her home as smelling of apples & cinnamon. Over the years, many many “care packages” of baking & goodies were gratefully received by the children. Verla was a cheery, “people” person who had a smile and friendly word for everyone, including strangers.

Verla was an avid sports fan, especially of hockey, but also enjoyed dancing, sewing, quilting, crafts and anything that was a puzzle and loved shorthand. At an early age she realized she had a talent for writing and after the children left home she wrote a newspaper column for eight years but lately had been freelancing. She also had a love for her hometown of Neepawa and was happy when able to walk along the familiar streets.

According to Verla’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family committal service was held on Thursday, June 4, 2009 at the Riverside Cemetery with Pastor Randy Fehr of Gladstone Christian Fellowship officiating.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that friends, if they so wish, may make donations to the Central Plains Cancer Care Services, 318 Saskatchewan Ave. E., Portage la Prairie, MB, R1N 0K8 or to the ALS Society, 265 Yorkland Blvd., Suite 300, Toronto, ON, M2J 1S5.

Arni George Hanneson

George was born at the home of his parents in Langruth, Manitoba, on September 4, 1915 and died as quietly as he had lived on May 28, 2009 at the age of 93 years.

George was predeceased by his loving wife Irene; his parents Helga (Erlendson) and Jon Hanneson; as well as his sisters Margaret, Beatrice, Norma and Frances. He was survived by his only brother who was his close friend and business partner Leonard (Nora), of Winnipeg, who passed away on June 2, 2009.

He is lovingly remembered by his children Arni, Bruce (Mervine), Brian (Vivianne), Claire (Michael), and Helga (Ed). George leaves 12 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.

As a young boy, Dad was only able to speak Icelandic but upon attending school, he quickly learned to converse in English. As a teenager, he had the privilege of attending the Jon Bjarnason Academy in Winnipeg.

Jobs were scarce during the Depression but Dad managed to find employment as a grain buyer. In 1939 at the age of 24, with $30 in his pocket and a borrowed car, he and Mom (Irene Hutchison of Langruth) were married. With the advent of WWII, Dad volunteered his services and joined the RCAF where he became a pilot. Upon his return home, he and his brother Len, decided to rebuild their father’s hardware store. The three men successfully ran Hanneson Bros. Hardware for many years. The love of flying instilled during the war years was rekindled when he purchased his cherished Piper Cherokee airplane. He enjoyed showing family and friends the spectacular aerial views over the shores of Lake Manitoba and the Great Marsh. In 1949, Dad and Len purchased farmland, which they worked for the next 25 years.

Dad was always an active member of the community and was a lifetime member of the Elks Lodge and the Langruth Legion. Having begrudgingly learned to play the piano in his youth, this talent stood him in good stead in later years where he and a group of friends would play for fun-filled Saturday evenings of music and dancing at the Legion.

After selling the store in 1974, Dad became a crop insurance adjuster. Since this was a summer occupation, it allowed our parents time to cruise and travel south for their winters. Following Mom’s death in 1982, Dad continued his travels south as well as touring Europe and North Africa.

Dad retired and moved to Portage la Prairie where he made many great friendships. In 1997 he made Neepawa his home and later, after losing his vision, became a resident of the personal care home. The family would like to thank the care home staff for the kindness and compassion shown to our father.

Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 2:00 pm at Grace Lutheran Church in Langruth. Flowers are gratefully declined. If friends so desire, donations may be made to Grace Lutheran Church, Box 238, Langruth, MB, R0H 0N0 or to the Central Plains Cancer Care, 318 Saskatchewan Ave. E., Portage la Prairie, MB, R1N 0K8.

Raymond Donald McDonald

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Raymond Donald McDonald on Friday, May 29, 2009 at the Neepawa Health Centre at the age of 79 years.

Ray was born on March 15, 1930, the second eldest to Daniel and Margaret McDonald of Forrest, MB. In 1933 the family moved to the Glenella District and Ray received his education at Camperdown School. In the late 1940’s, he helped haul lumber with horses from the Riding Mountains. The lumber was used to build their house, barn and granaries. While staying up in the mountains getting lumber, they lived in a shack, which they took up on their sleigh. After this he joined the threshing gang where he continued to help out until he was in his twenties. About 1954, he started working for Griffith Bros. Diamond Drilling around Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Ontario until he was ready to settle down.

Ray married Joan Fuglsang on December 29, 1962 and together they took over running the family farm. They continued to farm until his retirement to Neepawa in 1996. Ray centered his life around his family and his farm. He enjoyed fishing, boating, camping, curling and most of all his grandchildren.

Ray was predeceased by his parents Daniel and Margaret McDonald; his sister Shirley (Steve) Sulik and brothers Glen, Gib and Allen.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 46 years, Joan of Neepawa; children Sheldon (Leanne) Josh, Kolby and Rebecca of Glenella; Brenda (Alan) Rossnagel, BJ, Tyler and Meagan of Neepawa; Dale (Shelley) of Glenella; Gayle (Ryan) Kuyp and Abby-Gayle of Neepawa; brother Jack (Donna) of Mitchell, Ont; sisters Joan (Paul) Kerkowich of Arden, Marie (Vic) Jones of Chilliwack, BC; Joyce (Bill) Murdoch of Missisauga, Ont and many nieces and nephews.
