On Thursday, January 10, 2008, Elizabeth Otterman passed away at the Bengough Health Centre, Bengough, at the age of 90 years. Liz was predeceased by her parents, Issac and Camelia Howe; her husband, Henry Otterman; brothers: Leonard, George, Bill and Ed Howe; and daughter-in-law, Linda McCabe. Liz will be lovingly remembered by her two sons, Herb McCabe and his two children, Troy (Kassi Myren) McCabe and Tania (Bernard) Novak; and Merv (Bev) McCabe and their three children: Kathy (Kevin) Eden, Shawna (Troy) Verboom and Michelle (Brian) Meston, five grandchildren and ten great grandchildren; one sister, Evelyn (Dave) Gerrans; as well as numerous relatives and friends. Elizabeth Howe was born October 23, 1917 to Isaac and Camelia Howe. She was the 4th of six children. She had four brothers: Leonard, George, Bill and Ed and one sister, Evelyn. She grew up on the family farm southwest of Dahinda, walking about a mile and a half to the Adell School each day with her siblings. Times were hard growing up, and Liz recalled gathering weed seeds from the threshing machine to burn in the heater in the winter. Growing up, Liz took part in sport, attended community dances and helped her mother with household chores and taking care of the family. She and Ev would take turns putting cow chips in the stove to keep it hot while their mother baked. She must have been a good teacher because Liz became a good cook herself. When she finished her schooling, Liz went out to work for neighbors. Music and dancing were something she loved all her life, she even played the harmonica. In 1939 she married George McCabe. While living on the Bow farm in the Adell district, they had two sons, Herb in 1942 and Merv in 1945. Two years later, they moved to Ogema where they ran the cafe for a year, and in 1948 settled on a farm in the Dummer area. She was a dedicated farm wife, looking after the boys, hauling all the grain each year. She also worked at the Dummer store and belonged to the Dummer Ladies Community Club. When she wasn't working outside, Liz loved to cook and bake for her family and was always busy canning fruits and vegetables from her garden and stocking her deep freeze with pies, cookies, pastries and all kinds of goodies. Her grandchildren also enjoyed that well stocked freezer full of tasty treats. When Liz wasn't busy working, she loved to play cards, socialize with friends, go to dances and had many hobbies like knitting, crocheting, cross stitch embroidery and sewing. One of her favorite pastimes was curling and she participated in league curling and many bonspiels throughout her life, with a case full of trophies to show for it. After raising her boys, Liz left the farm in Dummer, and was eventually remarried to Henry Otterman in 1967. They farmed in Dahinda until 1974 when Henry's brother Bill passed away and they moved to the Otterman homestead south of Glasnevin. There, they continued to farm and to raise cattle, horses and chickens. Along with farm work, Liz also worked in Bengough at Ridell's Store. She loved to be out and about and around people as much as she could. She loved to entertain, and always had a pot of coffee on for company, along with a plate full of baking. She and Henry traveled to England in the early 70's where she was able to meet her extended family for the first time, and in 1981 they traveled to the Phillipines, Hawaii and Hong Kong. Liz was known for her quick wit, her one-liners and her tendency to be stubborn, and as a grandmother, she was fun and playful. Even her great grandchildren enjoyed having her get down on the floor and play with them. Liz and Henry moved into Ogema in 1984, and eventually retired from farming. Aside from her family, her greatest pleasure was her yard, she took such pride in her perfectly manicured lawn, garden and flowers. She had one of the biggest corner lots in town and in her 80's, she was determined to maintain it herself. She took great pride in winning several awards for the best yard in town. Liz continued to curl well into her retirement and also discovered bowling, participating in three leagues, ladies, mixed and golden age, along with shuffleboard. She was very proud of her collection of trophies for all her participation in sports over the years. She entered the Bengough Health Centre in 2004 when her memory began to fade and her health concerns worsened, but she quickly made friends with the health care workers and fellow residents, doing what she could to care for others . To say Liz lived a long, happy and fulfilling life is an understatement. She lived every day with great passion and her 90 years were chalked full of wonderful memories, surrounded by a loving family and great friends - a life truly worth celebrating. A memorial service was held Monday, January 14 at 2:00 p.m. from Ogema United Church, Ogema, with Rev. Isabella Frank officiating. Interment will be at a later date. Donations may be made in memory of Liz to the Bengough Health Centre Auxiliary. Arrangements were entrusted to Fletcher Funeral Chapels Ltd., Weyburn & Radville (842-5432 & 869-2566)
Barbara Marie Loos

She was their third - three more girls and two boys would complete this pioneer family. The girls worked hard on the farm. Barbara's school days were spent at Mukamore School - Reading, Writing and Arithmatic and Home Ec. She often told us she had a first ribbon in making button holes at the age of 11. She met the love of her live when they got new neighbors - the Loos boys and their mom. Cupid came calling and not one but two romances blossomed. Two Loos boys married two Krumenacker girls - John and Barbara was on November 25, 1930. They farmed at Grassdale and Ralph for several years and then moved to town.

They loved to travel and with many siblings living east and west they alternated each year visiting sisters in Ontario and British Columbia. Barbara was left a widow in February, 1973. She took a class from Ivol Kruger with six or seven other ladies and then did home care in people's homes. She delivered "Meals on Wheels" taking her youngest granddaughter with her. She loved to sing. The grandchildren just had to listen to the hymns in church to know if Grandma was there. She and a group sang with the senior choir at nursing homes for years. Barbara was an excellent cook; her shmorta, apple strudel and cream of wheat dumpling soup was second to none. Barbara loved to crochet and to garden, growing flowers and vegetables. She made a lot of quilts as well and sewed a lot of her own clothes. Once a month her and three other ladies took turns being "hostess" and after dinner played "yahtzee". Three are still with us, one 103, one almost 100 and her, must be the yahtzee they played.

Ted Sliwka, late of Weyburn, passed away on Saturday, January 26, 2008 at the age of 93 years. Ted was predeceased by his parents Walenty and Marianna Sliwka; a daughter in infancy, Marisa Sliwka and five sisters. Ted is survived by his wife of 68 years, Gene (Genowefa) Sliwka; his sons: Wesley (Lenore) Sliwka, Thomas (Lucy) Sliwka; daughter-in-law, Renata Sliwka; four grandchildren: Lillian Sliwka, Claudia (Nathan) Richea, Brandie (Kent) Fisher and Nikkie Sliwka; two great grandchildren: Keira Fisher and Kai Fisher. Ted Sliwka was born on April 12, 1914 in the small Polish village of Poleska; he was one of six children born to Walenty and Marianna Sliwka. Being the only boy in a household of five sisters shaped Grandpa's life and the lessons learned from them would come in handy in the years that followed. Unfortunately one of those lessons was sorrow, which he learned early in his youth when he suffered the loss of his twin sister. Another profound moment in Grandpa's life was when he met and fell in love with our grandmother, this would begin a love affair that would last 68 years of marriage. They were married on April 29, 1939. That following September war broke out in Europe and Grandpa was called to serve with the Polish army. Prior to his deployment, his mother gave him a rosary that he carried with him throughout the war, this rosary was very special to him and provided him comfort during his five years as a POW. On two occasions during his imprisonment he was part of a group of men that had been tagged for execution; in both instances high ranking officers overturned this decision at the last minute. Grandpa always credited his ability to elude death by the protection that his special rosary provided and his strong faith. This rosary is now in the left hand pocket of his suit. After the war he worked in a coal mine in Holland where his best friend tracked him down through the Red Cross and convinced him he should move to Canada instead of Australia. Grandpa landed in Canada in 1956 and began working for a farmer in Oungre. Those early days in Canada were tough because he was separated from his family and everything was new and different. One day Grandpa decided that he was going to learn how to cook rice. He had tried it during the war and liked it and decided today was the day that we were going to learn how to cook it. He went to the store bought some rice and took it home and boiled some up, but it wasn't working; it was soggy and tough. Disgruntled, Grandpa went back to the store and wanted to know what kind of rice had this shop owner sold him?? Well poor Grandpa I can just image how red faced he got when he discovered that he had actually bought coconut instead of rice Things began to fall into place in Canada and Grandpa worked hard and saved his money. He eventually purchased land near Lake Alma and farmed by Little Goose Lake. Grandpa stayed on this farm until he was 90; he raised cattle until he was 89! Grandpa had a way with animals that you would have to see to believe, he could comfortably walk amongst his herd and when he needed to call them to feed he would simply honk his horn and they would come running. His love of animals did not stop there and he was often caught feeding stray cats and he received a lot of reward working with his beloved peasants and pigeons. During his years on the farm he raised his family, and became known as a good neighbor, he would always help someone in need. He was a community man and was active with the Knights of Columbus. His warm smile and great sense of humour could be seen over a good game of cards. Later in life he enjoyed his grandchildren and great grandchildren. We often spent our summers on the farm and one summer I found out what a truly youthful spirit he had. I bet my grandpa that I could run faster then him, he said okay prove it, ready set go! He took off like lightening, I couldn't catch up to him if I tried. What struck me about that moment was that I didn't think he had it in him and wow, he didn't even let a little kid win! His youthful spirit amazed a lot of people. This spirit became evident when Grandpa and Grandpa moved into town. He became the chauffeur for some of the elderly ladies at the Legion Tower. He would say they need help, they were getting old, meanwhile he was 90 at the time. Good thing those ladies wore their seatbelts; that man could have a lead foot, he put his sunglasses on and hit the pedal to the metal. The ladies also liked that he could still cut a mean rug; he was the only man who would still dance. Up to his death he kept his sense of humour, he was never a man to complain and often he would scluff off his ailments so that the conversation could move to a lighter tone. He hated hospitals; he said they were for sick people so why should he go? He even joked about death saying, hey it's cold this time of year to put someone in the ground, remember the long Johns. Well Grandpa we remembered. This is a sad day for the Sliwka family, a day in which we need to say good bye to a man who has truly touched our hearts in so many ways. Although we will miss him we know that he will be watching from heaven and we know that he has found peace by being reunited with his family and friends. We are sad he is gone but we know that heaven is even a better place today because he is in it. We love you Grandpa and rest in peace. Prayers were held at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, Weyburn, on Tuesday, January 29 at 7:00 p.m. The funeral mass was held at St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church, on Wednesday, January 30 at 10:30 a.m. with Father Gerry Bauche celebrant.

Barney John Gunia
Barney John Gunia was born December 3, 1913, the eldest of five children born to Polish immigrants who had settled in the Cedoux area. He was an excellent student, obtaining his grade 9 by correspondence, but like many from his generation it was necessary for him to leave his schooling for work. Barney enjoyed music and dancing, although you would never see him on the dance floor, he was content just to be there watching the festivities. As a young man he worked on the family farm and other neighbouring farms. In 1979 he was recognized by the RM of Wellington for 30 years of dedicated service, with the majority of that time as a bridge and culvert foreman. Barney was a natural handyman never satisfied until the job was done just right, sometimes much to the dismay of those less patient. He was always interested in repairing anything that needed attention and was happy to be called upon by family or friends to help with renovation or construction projects. He delighted in taking something someone else had discarded and restoring it to working order. He was a man of few words, and easily entertained. Not wanting to be the center of attention, he was quite happy to observe and enjoy the fun from a distance. Barney spent most of his life in Cedoux, retiring to Weyburn in 1982. Due to declining health he entered Hillview Manor in Estevan in the summer of 2001 and in 2005 made the move to the Weyburn Special Care Home where he would be closer to his family. On Wednesday, January 23, 2008, Barney left this world just as he had lived his life, quietly, peacefully and without any fuss. Barney was predeceased by his parents, John and Irene Gunia; brother Edwin, brothers-in-law, James Strange and Sidney Wilson. Barney will be lovingly remembered by his three sisters: Wilhelmina Wilson of Weyburn, Adele Strange of Brownsburg, Indiana, USA and Phyllis (John) Leck of Shellbrook, one sister-in-law, Mary Gunia of Weyburn, and many nieces, nephews, and friends. The funeral mass was held Monday, January 28 at 11:00 a.m. from St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, Weyburn, with Celebrant Father Gerry Bauche.
