FRANK EDWARD MARYNOWSKI
March 7, 1950 - June 18, 2005
June 18, 2005 at 3:05 a.m., at the St. Boniface General Hospital, my beloved husband Frank was gently lifted by angels' arms and peacefully whisked away to meet his Creator.
He leaves to mourn his wife and soul mate of 33 years, Ghislaine. He also leaves behind his mother, Mrs. Annie Marynowski; sister Mary Arseny (Bill); brothers: Bobby (Gwen), Eugene (Marion), Paul (Marilyn), Rose Naherniak (Rev. Oris), and Russell (Marilyn). He will also be greatly missed by brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, many nephews, nieces and dear friends. He was predeceased by his father, Walter, Sept. 2, 1975.
Frank was born March 7, 1950 on the family farm in Zhoda, Man. He was the fifth of seven children.
Frank went to work in Winnipeg, Man., but would always return home on the weekends to help his parents, and continued to help his mom right to the end.
He married the love of his life and soul mate, Ghislaine (nee Balcaen), May 6, 1972.
Frank was a kind, gentle and loving man. He would help anyone who was in need. He was deeply loved by his nephews and nieces and he in turn deeply loved them. He enjoyed teasing, playing and teaching them many of life's lessons. They could not wait to see their Uncle Frank. He would always have some kind of treat hidden somewhere for them.
Frank loved to go out to the cottage at Dorothy Lake. He was an avid fisherman and hunter. He just could not wait to get out onto the lake to catch the "Big One". He would begin to prepare for the hunting season months in advance! It was not the actual hunting or fishing; it was the enjoyment of spending time with his friends.
Frank started out in the construction industry at an early age and proceeded to work his way up to become general manager of a well-respected water works company. Then in 1990, he decided to venture out on his own, became an entrepreneur, and created Franlaine Construction. Being the perfectionist that he was, he soon had many loyal customers who would rather wait for him to do the job than go elsewhere. Many of those customers became good friends. His friendly, sociable, and outgoing personality attracted people to him. He was everyone's friend and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
Special thanks to George Maneluk, Jarvis Swereda, Roy Naurocki, and Jarvis Korchak for always being there for Frank during his illness. Also a thank you to all the nurses at St. Boniface Hospital Oncology Department for the wonderful and compassionate care they provided.
Funeral services were held at St. Joachim Roman Catholic Church in La Broquerie, Man., Wednesday, June 22, 2005 at 10:30 a.m., with viewing one hour prior to the service. Burial took place at the Zhoda Community Cemetery.
Rest in peace, dear Frank.
We will always miss you and love you!

ISAAC N. HILDEBRAND
Feb. 22, 1920 - June 21, 2005
Peacefully in his favorite rocking chair, Isaac N. Hildebrand left his earthly home to spend eternity with his heavenly Father.
He will be lovingly remembered by Margaret, his beloved wife of 63 years; his children, Rose and Henry Peters, Norman and Lydia Hildebrand, Walter and Martha Hildebrand, Gladys and Terry Terichow, daughter-in-law Elviera Hildebrand, Jim and Diane Hildebrand, Charles and Lillian Hildebrand, and Eleanor Guderian; as well as 27 grandchildren; 38 great-grandchildren; three brothers, two sisters, and their families; the Krahn family and many friends.
He was predeceased by two sons, John Albert in infancy in 1945, and Edwin Abe in 1985; two grandsons; three brothers; one sister; and his parents.
Dad was born in the Glencross School District on his parents' farm. During his childhood and youth Dad developed a life-long love for animals, especially horses and cattle.
In February 1941 Dad accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord during special evangelical meetings in the Glencross church. In June 1941 he was baptized and became a member of the Glencross Rudnerweider Church (now EMMC). As a result of the evangelical meetings 19 young people were baptized that day. One of the young women who was baptized the same day was an attractive, dark haired teenager, Margaret Krahn, who soon became his sweetheart and wife. They were married May 3, 1942.
Dad and Mom raised their eight children on a farm in the Valleyfield School District. They moved to Morden in 1976, but Dad never fully retired. Even on the day of his death he checked the cows on the "Wiebe farm". Whenever Dad checked the cows and called out "Come Boss" the cows and their calves came running towards him. The cows and calves will miss him.
Dad and Mom had a beautiful outing the day of his death. They drove to Altona and Gretna to see the storm damage from Sunday's storm. They visited Mom's birthplace in Rosetown to see if the old trees were damaged, and had lunch at Chicken Delight in Winkler.
One of Dad's greatest interests was spending time with family and friends. He leaves a great legacy of helping others. Everyone who knows him can relate stories of how he helped them. His optimistic and positive attitude and genuine love for people was evident every day of his life. Dad and Mom shared a love for Bible camps and Bible schools and enjoyed seeing their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow in their spiritual journeys.
Although Dad's unexpected and sudden passing will leave an emptiness in the lives of those who love him so much, we take great solace in knowing that he is now with God and other loved ones.
"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." Revelation 21: 4
A celebration of his life was held Saturday, June 25, 2005 in the Glencross Mennonite Church, with burial in the Waldheim Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the Winkler Bible Camp, Box 2340, Winkler, MB, R6W 4C1.
"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing." II Timothy 4: 7-8

Peacefully, in the presence of his wife, Abe Fuchs passed away June 28, 2005 at the age of 77 years. He will be lovingly remembered by his soul mate of 50 years, Agatha; two children, Jim (Krystal) and Beve (Norm); grandchildren: Nikki, Kendra, Rae-Dawn, Victoria, Dylan; siblings: Minnie, Leonard, Viola, Marianne, Karl (Evelyn), Helen (Jake) and Waldo (Marge); two special aunts, Minnie and Agnes.
Abe was born Nov. 9, 1927 on the family farm in Lowe Farm, Man. to Emil and Annie Fuchs. His construction career began with 10 years for Paul Braun Const. and the Department of Highways. He was renowned for his exceptional skills as a grader operator for 35 years with the R.M. of Hanover.
He wed Agatha Friesen Sept. 10, 1955 and they became inseparable. Retiring in 1991, they took immense pleasure in camping and maintaining their acreage in Kleefeld. The granddaughters have fond memories of frequent sleepovers. This blissful period abruptly ended in 2004 with a fall resulting in renal failure. Abe struggled valiantly to recover. He kept his amazing foresight and analytical mind to the end. It was these skills and the devotion of his wife that enabled him to prolong his life for more than a year while we learned how to let him go. The family is grateful for the gift of each one of these days.
A celebration of Abe's life was held Monday, July 4, 2005, 11 a.m., at the CMC church at 479 Hanover St., Steinbach, Man., with viewing from 10 a.m. prior to the service. Interment at the Steinbach Heritage Cemetery followed. Active pallbearers were his nephews: Edward, John, Travis and Russell Friesen, Patrick Fuchs and Richard Chomokovski.
Flowers gratefully declined, but donations in Abe's memory to The Kidney Foundation of Canada, Manitoba Branch, 730 Taylor Ave., Winnipeg, MB, R3M 2K8 would be appreciated. Special thanks to the many friends, family, United Church and staff at HSC and St. Boniface hospitals for their care and support during Abe's illness.
Don't grieve for me, for now I am free
I'm following the path that God laid for me,
I took His hand, when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found my place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembering the joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all that brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me
God wanted me now, He set me free.
So long, farewell, till we meet again.
