Tina Dyck

Peacefully in the afternoon on Monday, August 24, 2009, our beloved mother, Tina Dyck passed away at the Seven Regions Hospital Palliative Care Unit at the age of 80 years, 4 months and 16 days.

Mom was born in Aberdeen district in Saskatchewan on April 8, 1929. In 1946, at the age of 16, she lost her mother and infant brother in child birth. She then helped look after her siblings until her dad remarried in 1947. She was baptised upon the confession of her faith in 1948 at the age of 19 years. In June of 1953, mom moved to St. Laurent, Manitoba with her family. Here she met dad and they were married on June 26, 1955. They farmed together in the Muir area where five of their children were born. In June of 1962, they decided to move to Bolivia with friends. After two months things didn’t work out well so they decided to move back to Manitoba. They continued farming on their Muir farm where three more children were born. In April of 1985, they sold their farm and moved to Austin where they resided until dad was put into the MacGregor Care Home. Mom then sold their place in Austin and moved to MacGregor to be closer to dad, where she resided until she was admitted to palliative care in Gladstone.

Mom had many struggles in her life, but her strong faith and her trust in the Lord carried her on everyday. She was a faithful and strong loving Christian wife and mother. Her children were what kept her going throughout the many years of hardship.

In July 2005, Mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. On August 5th she had surgery to remove the tumour. She was then cancer free until 2009 where it showed up in her lungs. The cancer then spread to the rest of her body. Mom went into palliative care, where she spent the rest of her days until her passing.

Mom leaves to mourn her passing, her 6 sons and 2 daughters; Henry (Jane) of Edrans, Manitoba, Herman (Peggy) of Gladstone, Manitoba, John (Judy) of Rosthern, Saskatchewan, Eva (Menno) Janzen of Hague, Saskatchewan, Peter (Susan) of Gladstone, Manitoba, Martha (John) Wiebe of Stuartburn, Manitoba, Ed (Darlene) of MacGregor, Manitoba, Abe (Lisa) of Edrans, Manitoba ; 48 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, her stepmother, 8 brothers, 5 sisters, numerous in-laws, nephews and nieces. She was predeceased by her husband, her parents, 3 sisters, 2 brothers and numerous in-laws.

We the family would like to thank each and everyone who showed their love and support in prayer and visitation for our mother. A special thank you to the staff of the Seven Regions Health Centre for all their care and support.

Moyra Patricia Wallwin

It is with sorrow that we announce the passing of Moyra Patricia Wallwin on September 2, 2009.

Moyra was born on March 8, 1919 to James and Alice Watson in Manchester County, England. At 3 months of age she came across to Canada with her family and settled in Montreal near her father’s family. Although her father died early in her life, Moyra had fond memories of growing up with her sisters amid the love of her mother and her father’s parents, his brothers and 1 sister. She was bilingual at the time of her marriage and was still able to communicate reasonably well in French after 50 years of living in western Canada. This was a skill she was proud of maintaining.

In 1945, Moyra married William Charles Wallwin and returned with him to his home province of Manitoba. Most of their married life was spent in the northern towns of Bissett and Lynn Lake where she raised their 4 children and fully participated in community activities. Adapting to life in isolated communities was a challenge for a young woman from a large city but Moyra met those challenges head on and the humorous stories she told of those early days kept the family entertained through many mealtimes. In the early years closer to Moyra and Bill’s retirement, the family lived in Ochre River and Dauphin.

Moyra, along with her husband Bill, worked hard to give their children the best life possible. This led her down many varied and interesting career paths. The one she identified with the most was her work in optometrist offices. This was where she worked in Montreal at the time of her marriage and she found it very satisfying when she was able to pursue this later in life. At other times she worked in a bakery, at a theatre, as a cosmetologist and as a store clerk where she also coordinated and commentated at fashion shows.

Her talent for writing was well known in the communities Moyra lived in and her poems were often the highlight at birthday parties and other events. She wrote a column for the “Lynn Lake Lyre” that was not just a social column but also provided commentary on life as Moyra saw it – sometimes humorous, sometimes controversial. She continued writing pieces right up until a few weeks before her passing.

Moyra’s interest in people was life long. She hated to think of people being alone and many Christmas meals were shared with those loved ones who were far away. She also took an interest in the well being of the neighbourhood children and hosted baking classes, square dances and other activities for them in her home. At the care home in Gladstone where she spent the last 4 ½ years of her life, she took time to talk to or to hold the hand of fellow residents she felt were lonely or sad.

Moyra was predeceased by her husband Bill and was the last surviving member of her generation in both families. She is survived by her children Lee (Ian) Watson, Jack Wallwin, Pearl (Ron) Morris and Noreen Wallwin.

She is also survived by her grandchildren of whom she was very proud, Paula Watson, Bill (Danielle) Morris, Nancy Morris and great grandchild Nicholas Morris.

If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

“A life well lived leaves a lasting impression on everyone it touches”

Moyra’s life was a life well lived.

Jim was born in Portage La Prairie on June 9, 1936 the oldest son of Hector and Adeline MacDonald.

Jim spent time with his grandchildren, driving around visiting neighbours, helping whoever needed help whether they wanted it or not. Jim worked at many different jobs over the years too many to list and in many different places. He enjoyed 20 years at the Esso Service Station where he met many different and interesting people.

He loved to hunt, especially after his grandchildren were old enough to go with him. He was always interested in what his family was doing and helped them whenever he could.

Viewing was held on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at Clarke's Funeral Chapel, MacGregor. Funeral service was held on Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. in the MacGregor United Church. Interment followed in the MacGregor Cemetery.
