Alvina "Winnie" Knecht
September 30, 1915 - February 13, 2005
Funeral arrangements by
Glen Eden Funeral Home (Winnipeg)

It is with much sadness that we have to announce the passing of Alvina Knecht on February 13, 2005,

In early years the family resided on Alexander Avenue and then moved to Gallagher Street, where Winnie grew up with her two brothers Ted and Ernie, who have since predeceased her as well as her parents Peter and Elizabeth (Koch) Knecht.

As a self taught and determined lady, Winnie worked as a domestic, as a laundress and then worked at Investors Syndicate where she remained until her retirement. She loved traveling but enjoyed being home with her pet dogs. Winnie was exceptional when it came to crochet. He unique designs and many works of crocheting were of her own imagination and made with little effort. It landed her first place at the exhibition. All of us have something to treasure and remember her by and shall keep and use them always. When Winnie's health failed, she resided at the Golden Door on Pembina Highway. She was the only lady who controlled the hallways with her electric wheelchair. Her chair peeled rubber as good as a Mustang. Never used a horn - just hollered BEEP and everyone moved. She didn't believe in speed limits. When not riding around, she was consumed with her crocheting. Winnie was one of a kind.

Thank you Golden Door staff for all the kindness, care, patience and understanding throughout Winnie's stay.

Winnie is going to be very much missed by her best friends; Marilyn Brown (Les) (Marnie), her life long childhood friend Mary Neilson, Debbie Urbanski (Chris), the Gallagher girls and her pet dog Holly.

Winnie is survived by her sister-in-law Kae Knecht; nieces Bonnie and Barb; nephews Brian and Jim.

At Winnie's request, no funeral service will be held. Cremation has taken place. Interment will take place on Friday, February 18, at 1:30 p.m., at Brookside Cemetery next to her mother. Luncheon will be served at Golden Door, 1679 Pembina Highway prior to interment at 11:30 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, please donate in Winnie's memory to Darcy's Arc Animal Shelter on Portage Avenue, or to a charity of one's choice.

William Malynyk
March 09, 1917 - January 27, 2005
Funeral arrangements by
Glen Eden Funeral Home (Winnipeg)

On the evening of Thursday, January 27, 2005, William (Bill) Malynyk, aged 87, passed away peacefully surrounded by family.

Predeceased by his wife Elizabeth in 1988; brother Nick. Bill leaves behind his son Lyle (Pat); his daughter Brenda; and his precious granddaughter Jessica; brother Harry and sister-in-law Judy, with whom he shared a close relationship. He is also survived by Dick and Bernice Sheppard, his former neighbours whom he considered his greatest friends. He is also survived by his sisters, Lena, Mary and Rose and their families.

Bill met Elizabeth while working for her father in Woodridge, and marriage soon followed. He served overseas as a Gunner in the Army and upon his return they built a house and raised a family in East Kildonan, which was home until a few short years ago. His entire working career was spent as an appliance repairman with Eatons. Many conversations were held around the kitchen table about the good old days. Many of his customers shared a special friendship with Bill after his retirement and he cherished those visits and telephone calls. Even after retirement, you could always find Bill in the garage, tinkering and repairing something; turning nothing into something - that was his specialty. Some of his inventions were pretty creative, and we shared many good laughs over them.

There was no greater enjoyment to Bill than to spend a day fishing with his wife and family. He was quite the swimmer in his younger years and could out swim his son any day! He was also a great bowler, and for many years bowled on leagues at Billy Mosienko Lanes. His basement was lined with dozens of trophies. Another love of his was ceramics. Bill's entire house was filled with ceramics he made over the years. Bill spent the last number of years residing at Kildonan Personal Care Home due to Alzheimer's Disease.

The family would like to thank staff for their kindness and compassion over the years. The family would also like to thank Dick and Bernice Sheppard for all their love and support over the years.

Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will take place at Glen Eden Memorial Gardens on Saturday, February 5 at 1:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, 10 - 120 Donald St., Winnipeg, MB.

BACK AGAIN Time has taken me from you, Although not very far. I'll be watching through the sunshine And through the brightest star. I'll be watching all of you, From the Heavens up above. So take good care of each other And carry all my love. If you're ever wondering if I'm there Here's where you can start Take a look inside yourself Deep within your heart. I'll always be your Father and your Best friend, So anytime you need me, Close your eyes, I'm back again.

Goodbye, our Dear Father and Grandfather VICHNAYA PAM'YAT
