1910 - 2002

Thursday, July 25, 2002, Viara McVicar passed away peacefully at the Morris Hospital in Morris, Man. at the age of 92.
Vi was born April 20, 1910 at Kingsley (near La Riviere), Man. Following completion of "Normal School" (teachers' college) in Manitou, Man., she embarked on a long and rewarding teaching career, beginning with assignments in several small Manitoba communities. In about 1932 she accepted a teaching position in Arnaud, Man. It was there that she met Donald McVicar and they were married in 1935. Vi put her teaching career "on hold" in 1940 so that she could focus on raising her children. In 1944 Viara and Donald moved to Dominion City, Man., where they lived and raised their family throughout most of the next 40 years. In 1954, with her youngest child now of school age, Vi resumed her teaching career. She taught in Dominion City for the next 12 years, and then in Winnipeg, Man. for an additional six years. She retired in 1972, leaving a legacy of grateful students, many of whom remember her as "Super Teacher."
In 1984, five years after Donald's death, Vi began a new lifestyle - making her home in Winnipeg in the summers and in Alamo, Texas in the winters. In Texas she met and made many new friends from all over North America. One of those new friends was John Wilson of St. Paul, Minn. and they soon developed a very special and dear relationship. Throughout the last 15 years Vi and John had been constant and close companions, traveling and enjoying their many interests together, in Texas in winters and up north in summers. In 1990 Mom chose the Meadowood Manor in St. Vital to be her new Winnipeg residence, and in the ensuing 12 years she established many more dear friendships with her fellow residents, the staff and caregivers at Meadowood.
Vi's many relatives and friends will miss her and cherish their memories of her, especially her children, Carol and Vernon Wilkinson of Ridgeville, Man., Earle and Jeanine McVicar of Calgary, Alta., Leona and Brian Scobie of Sherwood Park, Alta.; her grandchildren Tim and Debbie Wilkinson, Rick Wilkinson and Laura St. Vincent, Mark McVicar, Tyler McVicar and Jill Sutherin, Corey and Isabel Scobie, Jana Scobie; her two great-grandchildren, Annette and Savannah; her brother Cecil Horn and his wife Peggy; and her dear friend John Wilson and special companion Anne Nickel.
Vi was predeceased by her parents, Elizabeth and Fred Horn; her sister Alma and her brother Walter.
Funeral services were held Monday, July 29, 2 p.m. at the Dominion City United Church, Dominion City, with Reverends Myrna and Bob Stark officiating. Interment followed at the Dominion City cemetery.
Friends wishing to do so may contribute, in lieu of flowers, to the Dominion City United Church Memorial Fund or to a charity of their choice.

(1932 - 2002)

Agatha was born near Glen Kerr, Sask., March 19, 1932, a few months after her father passed away. She lived with her mother until she moved to the La Broquerie, Man. area at the young age of 16. It was here, while employed as a housekeeper for her brother Dave and his wife Susan, that she met and married our father at 18 years of age. Their wedding took place March 16, 1951 in Giroux, Man. God blessed our wonderful parents with nine children.

During our parents 51 1/2 years of married life, our mom faced and overcame many challenges. Dad became a pastor in 1968 and has since pastored three churches. Throughout all these years she faithfully and unselfishly served as a pastor's wife, while pouring her love and life into her family.

Being the mother of nine children and raising seven of them to adulthood was no easy task. Waking up, packing lunches and getting seven children ready for the bus by 8:20 a.m. was only one of her many daily tasks. Our parents would sometimes jokingly say, "There go our seven dwarfs." I guess that would make our mom "Snow White." One of our fond memories coming off the bus was the smell of Mom's home cooking. We were so blessed to have our mom waiting for us and looking after us.

Our mom loved Jesus. She told us that when she was 12, her mom was deathly ill. It was at this time that she cried out to Jesus and He answered her prayers and spared her mom's life. She later rededicated her life to the Lord shortly after the death of her infant son Marvin. After being baptized, our parents have faithfully served the Lord all these years.

After overcoming many challenges, at age 59 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. This prompted immediate radical surgery. About five years later the cancer had metastasized into her bones. Mother courageously endured more surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation treatments, bone therapy and numerous medications.

During these difficult times our mother blessed us and many others with her grateful and positive spirit. She was always so thankful to all those who helped her and prayed for her. We will always cherish her final words, thanking her family for being there for her.

Our mom passed away peacefully at home on Sept. 18, 2002 with family at her bedside. Her wish was to go to glory from her home of 48 years and God granted her wish. Mother will be greatly missed by her husband, two sons and five daughters. Left to mourn are her beloved husband Peter; sons, Allen (Sharon) Broesky, Gerry (Diane) Broesky; daughters, Elaine (John) Warkentin, Myrna (Greg) Penner, Karen (Jack) Martens, Teresa (Eric) Wiens, Beverly (Barron) Friesen; 16 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She will also be missed by many friends and relatives.

Mother was predeceased by two children in infancy, Laura and Marvin; her parents; five brothers and five sisters.

Funeral service was held Sunday, Sept. 22, 2002, 2:30 p.m., at Emmanuel Evangelical Free Church in Steinbach, with Mr Gerry Broesky and Pastor Jim Humphries officiating. A private family interment followed in the Steinbach Heritage Cemetery.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Roger Gingerich, Dr. Wilfrid Kaethler and nurse Anne Plett for helping our mother and us through this difficult time. We are also grateful to the staff at Bethesda Hospital, Health Sciences Centre, Victoria General Hospital and St. Boniface Hospital.

We also want to thank Bill Dyck and the staff at Loewen Funeral Chapel, the Evangelical Free Church for the use of their facilities, Pastors Jim and Irene Humphries and all those who helped us celebrate our mom's home-going.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Agatha Broesky Memorial Fund, c/o Gospel Chapel, Box 309, La Broquerie, MB R0A 0W0.
