Elizabeth Ruth Penner

June 1, 1907 - March 22, 2003

With her daughter at her side, Elizabeth (Beth) Penner died peacefully early Saturday evening. Born in 1907 in Winkler, Manitoba, Beth was 95 years young at the time of her death.

In her ninety five years, Beth had many careers: a teacher in a one room school, a business woman, a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. To each of these roles she brought her own special blend of love, dignity and honesty. Beth embodied the very essence of Christianity. She always looked for and brought out the best in everyone she met. Those of us fortunate enough to know and love her will forever treasure the gift of her presence.

Beth met and married her life's partner Jack in Winkler, Manitoba. They moved to Kenora where they raised three children together. They established Penner's Jewellers and many of her customers and employees became life long friends. She was a member of the Donna Club at Knox United Church and the Business and Professional Women's Association. Beth enjoyed her years in the Gardner House and was an avid and competitive 500 and cribbage player. She enjoyed sharing meals and socializing with her many friends - old and new.

Predeceased by her husband Jack and three sisters, Beth leaves to cherish her memory: her brother John Elias, her three children, Joyce (Harold) Primmer of Thunder Bay, Fergus (Barbara) Penner and David (Joan) Penner of Kenora; her grandchildren: Paul Primmer, Janet (Dan Ek) Primmer, MaryBeth (Dan) Sherwood, Christopher (Shelley) Penner, Hilary (Henry) Floreal, Bradley (Jennifer) Penner, Aynsley Penner, and great-grandchildren, David, Nicholas, Kirsten, Kiefer, Amaia, Jackson, Wesley, Brooke and Kahia. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews in Saskatchewan and southern Manitoba.

A service to celebrate Beth's life will be held Friday, March 28th, at 11:00 a.m. at Knox United Church.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be made in her memory to the Lake of the Woods District Hospital CT Scan Fund or to Knox United Church.

Katherine (Kay) Olson

OLSON Katherine (Kay) born August 18, 1913 - passed away peacefully at Sherwood Manor, Abbotsford, BC on March 23, 2003. remembered with deep love by her children, Alma (Walter), John (Anne), Edward (Gayle); grandchildren and two great grandchildren, Robert (Crystal), Tina, Tia and Holly; loving sister, Nellie, and brothers, Victor (Helga) and Edwin (Colleen). Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Our heartfelt thanks to Dr. M. Ormston, Mom's caring physician, and the equally caring staff at Sherwood Manor who tended Mom during the past few months. Upon retirement in 1978, Mom moved to the west coast to reside with her daughter and son-in-law but her heart remained with her beloved former home in Kenora/LacLu, Ontario. A private remembrance will be held by the family at a later date. Mom loved flowers but, should friends desire, donations in her memory to the Alzheimer Society or the Heart & Stroke foundation would be appreciated.

When I come to the end of the road
and the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little - but not too long
and not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me - but let me go.
for this is a journey that we all must take
and each must go alone
It's all a part of the Master's Plan
a step on the road to home
When you are lonely and sick of heart
go to the friends we know
and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me - but let me go.
(Author unknown)

Prouden was born February 28, 2003 and passed into the arms of God March 1, 2003. Many family members surrounded our little boy, Prouden, in the time he was with us. His grandparents, Helen and Leslie Copenace; Bernice and Melvin Henry, were there playing with him. He was with us two more hours from the time the life support systems were taken off. We all played with him, taking our turn to hold him; with our tears streaming, he made us laugh with his little smile.

His parents, Wayne Crow-Moose clan, and Denise Johnson-Muskrat clan, cried, but they were brave as their baby left to be with the Creator, Wayne sang a traditional song to his son as he held him.

His great uncles and aunties on the father's side; Johnny Namaypoke, Pete Crow, George Crow, Allan Crow, Judge Joe Morrison, ada Morrison, Josephine Prince, Lulubelle Kabestra, Teresa Crow, and Betty Ann Crow; Bob Wesley, David Wesley, Steve Wesley, Joe Wesley, Mary Onabigon, Ann Wesley, Louisa Sanderson, Helen Wesley, Theresa Towedo, Francis Saggashie, Lucia Taylor, Alice Longboat, Yvonne Pangowish and Stella Wesley.

There are many family members that we did not mention, but we know their love is with us, and we love them too. Wayne and Denise would like to give a special thanks to Verna (Mona) White and Rodney Crow for their help and kindness in their time of need. They provided the transportation to bring family to be near them. As well they would like to give acknowledgement and appreciation to the staff at the Health Sciences Center, particularly to the doctors and nurses at the Children's Hospital and Women's Hospital, they were always truthful and caring to us.
