New Year Blows in With a Storm

Photos by Karen Mitchell
S tudents in a number of school divisions, including
Rolling River, enjoyed a bit or an extended Christmas
holiday when the rst big snowstorm of the year roared
in. e Manitoba blizzard began Sunday, January 6th,
just one day before schools were set to open after Christ-
mas break.
Heavy snowfall and erce winds continued to worsen
as the day went on and through the night leaving a mess
of heavily snow covered, packed and drifted roads Mon-
day morning. e storm and poor road conditions forced
the closure of numerous schools throughout southern
Manitoba for one more day. However, Mother Nature’s
wrath was not nished yet and the storm picked up again
Monday with strong winds making visibility di cult in

some areas. Schools in Rolling River were again closed Tuesday as a blowing snow advisory saw gusts of over 50 km/hour. Out in the rural areas, roads drifted back over almost as fast as plows cleared them making travel in some areas di cult or impossible. Severe windchill also plagued the area making the outdoor temperature which fell to under -20 feel closer to -30 degrees Celsius. e clean-up continues after this seasons rst, and hopefully only big winter storm!

Top: Heavy snow accumulated along streets and roads making travel and parking a bit di cult for some drivers before the cleanup began. Inset: Residents and snow removal crews have been kept busy with snowblowers and shovels as we dig out from the storm.

Erickson Main Street to Welcome New Daycare

By KAREN MITCHELL

C ome spring, a new light shines hope on

families struggling with the lack of child care spaces in and around the commu- nity of Erickson. Chrystal Shellborn, mother of two young chil- dren, realized a need in the community and took ac- tion on finding a solution. “In the winter of 2017, I approached the Clanwil- liam-Erickson Assistant CAO and asked about their abilities to have a community childcare cen- tre,” said Chrystal. “At the

time, I was familiar with the struggle for working parents to find acceptable childcare options and even more so in our rural area. The response they found out was that community

centres have not been completed by municipali- ties but rather volunteers within the community. My goal was to provide a safe, affordable and qual- ity form of childcare in our rural area as I strongly feel the options are lim- ited, creating unnecessary stress on young families - in addition, I had hoped this would add to the rural Main Street and enhance our local economy.” Shellborn reached out to other area families to see if there was interest for community members in the surrounding area to band together and make this valuable initiative a reality. Receiving reason- able uptake from local parents, an initiative was formed and a board was created in January of 2018.

“Since that we have put on several fundraisers includ- ing Little Ceasear’s Pizza, paint nights and Purdy’s Chocolate,” explained Shellborn. “In addition, we have requested donations from community mem- bers/businesses and are

grateful for those that have contributed financially and material items for the center. We have been for- tunate enough to have our town council support us throughout the stages of making this a reality and could not have managed without their help.” During the summer

of 2018, the former RBC

Royal Bank building on Erickson’s Main Street was purchased and posses- sion obtained. “We opted

to buy this building as it is very spacious, well-built and has amazing access

to natural light which is a

requirement for child care centers. In addition, there was appropriate space in

the rear of the building

to have a fenced in back

yard large enough for the amount of licensed chil- dren in the centre,” said

Shellborn. Renovations are in full swing currently, starting in middle of December 2018. The goal for completion is sometime this Spring. The building is being gutted on the inside to develop

a separate infant room

space, add in bathrooms

for the infant room, create

a staff room and preschool area. In addition, we have to develop an outdoor area

as well as add a sprinkler system. All renovations

Renovations are currently underway at the former RBC Royal Bank building in Erickson. The building will soon house a community daycare.

will meet all up-to-date coding to create the safest space possible for the chil- dren. At present, the daycare will be licensed for eight infant spots as well as six-

teen pre-school spots. In the future the committee is hopeful to create a before and after school program, as this is very much need-

ed for the area. “Although the centre will be located on Main Street in Erickson, the cen- tre is really much more than that for all of our surround-

ing communities,” Shell- born explained. “There are limited childcare op- tions in both Onanole and Erickson (maybe one to two home daycares) and Sandy Lake has none that I am aware of. Rolling River First Nation does have a childcare centre which has a great uptake I have been told but also limited spac- es as in any centre. This, in my mind, has and always will be a center not just for members of Erickson but the children and families of the surrounding areas

including Minnedosa.” Currently the com- mittee members include Chair: Chrystal Shellborn; Co-chair: Jen Winthrop; Treasurer: Val Smith; Sec- retary: Candice Horn; Members at large: Scott Gray, Tami Johnson, Me- lissa Davies and Jackie Rempel. The committee is always grateful for mone- tary or material donations and are open to fundrais- ing ideas as well as fund- raising partnerships if any- one is interested.

Almost 50 Curlers Take in Second Annual Family Fun Spiel

By KAREN MITCHELL

O n Sunday, December 30th, a dozen rinks

took part in the second annual Minnedosa Curl- ing Family Fun Spiel at the local curling rink. Teams came from Minnedosa and surrounding area includ- ing Shoal Lake and Bran- don. Approximately 31 of the 48 curlers were un- der the age of 15, with the youngest being five-years- old.

The bonspiel consist- ed of three games for each rink in the one-day event. Each game was one hour or four ends in length, whichever came first. No scores were tracked during the day and every curler walked away with a prize. Along with the curling, there were raffle prizes, a blind gift game and several kids enjoyed tobogganing behind the rink. Several local businesses were gen- erous enough to donate to the raffle table or offer great discounts to the club. “It’s a fairly fast paced day with short games so kids seem to

have a great time,” stated organizer, Kathy Tomlin- son. “There are basically no rules, a lot of teams took turns skipping, including the kids. Often rotating positions each end. There are definitely no losers at the bonspiel, it’s really re- ally fun to be a part of and heartwarming how every- one helps each other. If you want to be active and spend time with your kids, this is a great way to do it. I’d recommend every fam- ily try it at least once.”

2018 A Busy Year For Minnedosa

By DARRYL HOLYK

A s we kick off a new year, we take time to reflect back over the past 12 months and the hap-

penings in our community. From time to time we hear someone say there is nothing happening in Minnedosa, well by flipping through the pages of the 2018 editions of the local community newspaper, we can definitely prove that statement incorrect! First off, the good news stories of the year. Skate the Lake and Minnedosa Minor Hockey earned a provincial Travel Manitoba Partnership Award while Rayna Topham and Dirty Lake Outfitters were hon- oured with Westman Tourism Award. At the local level, Dan Johnson received the Dedication to Sport Award at the Sports Dinner. Local athletes also cel- ebrated a number of local, regional and provincial achievements and titles throughout the year. Minnedosa celebrated a number of community growth success stories in 2018, the biggest one being the completion and opening of the new medical clin- ic, the Dr. Ajai Khandelwal Primary Care Centre. A number of new construction projects were also seen including the start of three new multi-unit housing complexes. Two of these are located by the old fair- grounds with another one at the old hospital site. We were also fortunate to welcome back numerous resi- dents to the completely revamped Town View Manor. The community daycare announced its plans to expand its building by the arena and our commu- nity welcomed a number of new business ventures throughout the year. Some of these new businesses include Farmhouse 50, Serendipity Paint Company and Theradream Therapeutics. 2018 marked a number of anniversaries for our community. The Town of Minnedosa and The Minnedosa Tribune both celebrated their 135th an- niversaries. Basswood Women’s Institute celebrated 100 years of service, Minnedosa Rotary Club marked its 75th anniversary and the Minnedosa Lions Club celebrated four decades of community service. Alan and Barb Dalrymple and family celebrated 30 years of their greenhouse business, Rockin’ the Fields of Minnedosa celebrated 15 years of its successful Au- gust long weekend music festival and the 50+ Centre celebrated 10 years of service. May 4th, 2018 marked

the 70th anniversary of the spillway collapse and downtown flood. Some exciting changes took place in civic elec- tions across the province and locally, Pat Skatch was acclaimed as Minnedosa 40th mayor and the third fe- male to hold this position since 1883. Doug Dowsett was acclaimed as the new Reeve for the Rural Munic- ipality of Minto-Odanah. On the other hand, there were also a number of unwelcome news stories in 2018. The biggest of the year across Canada was the Humbolt Broncos bus crash which affected hockey families, fans and com- munities across the nation. Locally, three people lost their lives in a Valentine’s Day car crash on High- way #10 southwest of town. In August, Cpl. Graeme Kingdon was wounded in a shooting incident near Onanole. On the business front, Minnedosa sadly experi- enced a few business closures over the past year and joined others across the country who mourned the loss of Sears and Greyhound bus services. These are just a few or the many newsworthy happenings and events that filled The Tribune’s pages throughout 2018 and we look forward to the exciting news we will get to report to our readers this year. With today’s edition, the first of 2019, The Tribune be- gins another year of recording our community’s rich history.

Food Safety – Where is the Regulator?

By Jon Crowson, Hamiota, MB

T he latest case of Ro- maine lettuce, con-

taminated with e.coli bac- teria, cleared the grocery store shelves, and left us wondering just how do you concoct a salad without lettuce? The Californian source was tracked, and hopefully dealt with (most likely contaminated wash water at the packing plant). Several weeks on and we are pretty much back to normal, and the carrier for our salad dressing has been restored. Health Can- ada issued recalls for just

3 of the 6 Canadian Prov- inces affected – a gesture I guess. My sympathies to any affected families, but in the bigger scheme of healthy food this was pret- ty small potatoes. Health Canada is the federal agency charged with ensuring food safety for all Canadians, through its branch the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. One has to wonder just how much they are con- cerned about their de- clared mandate versus keeping Canada’s food industry happy, and mi- nimising regulation. There are many instances where the agency is late to the table, lukewarm in any regulations it does pass, and frequently missing in action altogether. Added sugar in break-

fast cereals is an old story. We all know it. We all know the health consequences. The problem has been known about for years, it’s fixable by legislation, so it’s high time for our regu- lator to play hardball with the manufacturers, be they domestic or otherwise. Then there are some very dubious practices which our food indus- try engages in, which di- rectly threaten the health of those who consume their products. A recent investigative piece by The Guardian (29 Dec. 2018) highlights the growing evi- dence of the health risks of using nitrites to cure meat products like bacon and ham. When ingested the nitrites produce nitrosa- mines, which are known carcinogens. A coalition of U.K. scientists and parlia- mentarians is likening this situation to that of the to- bacco industry, when the real truth came out. Profes- sor Chris Elliot (Food Sci- entist) says the evidence indicates these chemicals result in 6,600 bowel can- cer cases each year in the UK (Four times the death toll from car accidents). A 2015 report by the World Health Organisation linked processed meats to 34,000 cases of colorectal cancer worldwide. Nitrites are also linked to increased breast cancer risk, and as well the onset of mental health problems.

Nitrites give bacon that nice pink colour. The processors will plead that they need it to combat botulism etc., and that it is not that harmful. How- ever there are alternatives. Some Parma ham pro- ducers have not used ni- trites for 25 years. Various processors have more re- cently adopted nitrite free substitutes, so clearly it is possible. Where is Health Canada in this important health debate? Then there is the is- sue of overuse of antimi- crobials (antibiotics) in meat production in this country. Historically an- tibiotics have been used for livestock production in three ways: for treatment of disease, for prevention of disease, and for growth promotion. It has been a widespread practice here. In 2014 1.5 million kilo- grams of antimicrobial ac- tive ingredient was used in Canada. Much of that used as a feed additive for growth promotion. The well documented concern is the link between excessive antimicrobial use, and the development of the so-called “Super- bugs” (C.difficile, MRSA, VRE, etc) that have serious implications for human health and disease control. Many countries have long banned the use of antimi-

crobials as a feed additive due to this linkage. Canada has not and the govern- ment says it has no plans to do so. Canada has how- ever finally implemented the requirement for vet- erinary prescriptions for livestock use of antibiotics. It remains to be seen if that accomplishes very much, perhaps what was formerly for “growth promotion” will simply show up under the heading “for disease prevention”! Ironically one signifi- cant player, Maple Leaf has very quietly been moving towards antibiotic free sta- tus in the production barns it owns, so we know it can be done. This presumably because it can foresee that business as usual (using antibiotics as a growth pro- motant), is not going to be successful once the great Canadian public realize that it is, a) not necessary and, b) a serious and grow- ing public health hazard. If that pork were segregated through the plant it could proudly bear the sticker “Raised without the use of antibiotics”, as sanctioned by Health Canada. Then of course you would need another sticker for the other stuff, which was not “raised without” That leads me to the advertizing used by our own Manitoba Pork Coun-

cil. The latest version is “never contains any anti- biotics”. It’s subtle, but it is deceptive to the consumer. The statement would sug- gest the product has had no association with antibi- otics of any kind. Were that the case they could use the Health Canada sanctioned statement “Raised without the use of antibiotics.” But for much of it that is not the case. “Does not con- tain significant antibiotic residues”, would be more truthful, but a whole lot

less appetising. The regula- tor should have something to say about this deceptive advertizing. Where is the regulator? Inevitably, if we live long enough, the truth will come out on these vari- ous issues, and our regu- lator will have to come out of hiding and take ac- tion. Winston Churchill reminds us: “Truth is in- controvertible. Panic may resent it, ignorance may deride it, malice may dis- tort it, but there it is”.

D ecember 25th saw the ninth annual Christmas Day Dinner come and go for another year. The dinner

proved to, yet again, be a huge success with over one- hundred fifty people attending for the sit-down meal and

forty take-out meals prepared. This year bringing out the largest attendance to date! Once again, the volunteers behind the scenes are the key to all things great! Ray Baloun, aka Ray the Dinner Guy, explained, “Barb Hanishewski, our emcee for the day, highlighted how everyone at the dinner was also a part of the big picture we call community. Everyone is

a different shape with different things they add to make

a great community. Some are edge pieces and some like

to be in the center of things, however when one piece is

missing it is definitely noticed. Every single piece is im-

portant!”

Anita Holdaway and volunteers worked tirelessly to prepare another great meal, the Handivan transported those who needed a ride and Woodman the Butler and Keith Hyde were decorated up for the day! Along with the weather cooperating, this was a slam dunk for sure! The front foyer of the Minnedosa Community Conference Centre was beautifully decorated by Gail Baloun, with a scene of a sitting room from years gone by that drew in- stant memories from the almost forgotten past. Santa even made it for a quick visit and read aloud

a couple of the names from his naughty list! As you can

imagine, Woodman the Butler managed to keep off this list yet again - good job Woodman! Throughout the day, Barry McNabb, delighted those in attendance with his piano talents, playing songs of the season and ten lucky winners walked away with bright red Poinsettias to take home. “The volunteers of all ages, combined with the guests, made a great picture of what a good home Minnedosa is! And the best part of it all is that no one there was alone On Christmas Day!” reflected Ray.

Craving Change in 2019?

SUBMITTED

A s we ring in a new year, people may find them-

selves making resolutions for the year ahead. Often these resolutions center around goals of improved personal fitness and nu- trition. If finding ways to improve your eating tops

your list, Prairie Mountain Health (PMH) wants you to know about the Craving Change™ program and how you can get involved. Craving Change™ is

a 3-session course de-

veloped by a registered dietitian and clinical psy- chologist to help people understand their triggers

for problematic eating, discover ways to control cravings, and to maintain healthy changes! Sherrill-Lee Hyra, a Health Promotion Coordi-

nator, with PMH is one of the facilitators who leads Craving Change™ in the region. “We live in a so- ciety where outside fac- tors greatly affect our eat- ing. The Craving Change™ program takes a look at our eating environments as well as explores how emotions and learned be- haviours influence the de- cisions we make around food,” Hyra says. “This is a

necessary first step when working towards sustain- able changes to our eating behaviour.” If you have ever strug- gled to maintain healthy eating habits and want to feel more in control of your eating, attending a Craving Change class series might be for you. “The program

is not about dieting. It is

about understanding and controlling thoughts and behaviours that can lead to overeating,” adds Hyra. “Having other participants in the class to share and learn from is also helpful.” Prairie Mountain

Newdale News

By Raven’s Glen WI

A n evening of enter- tainment took place

at Harrison House before Christmas when commu- nity members came “a- caroling” singing Christ- mas carols, followed by coffee and treats with the residents. Former New- dale resident George Smith brought along his guitar to help entertain the residents and all enjoyed catching up on his hap- penings since moving from town. The Church’s Christ- mas Eve service was well attended December 24th with the service taken by Richard and Frances Walk-

er. Special musical selec- tions, with Wendy Rose on flute, Doreen Stapleton on piano and Carol Dal- garno on organ, were per- formed before and during the service. Special read- ings were given by Frances and Christine Walker, with the Angels, Shepherds and Magi surrounding the manger where Baby Jesus lay. Many old fa- vourite Christmas carols were sung and enjoyed. A bounteous pot-luck sup- per followed in the lower hall with a wonderful so- cial time finishing off our church Yule season. The congregation is very ap- preciative of all the hard work that goes into this

beautiful evening service every year. Visiting Grant and Shelley Zahaiko for the holidays, arriving Decem- ber 26th, were daughter Al- lison and Jonathon Wiens and boys Samuel and Ben- net from Winnipeg. The week they were here one of the highlights was when great niece Jamie came for an afternoon of ice fish- ing on Sandy Lake where everyone had a great day with lots of fun! A fish was even caught! Wendy Rose joined her family on December 22nd to celebrate with her sister Patti McTavish and family. Then on Christ- mas Day they gathered

Gordon and Enid Clark, David Clark and Carolyn Baker celebrated Christmas on Decem- ber 24th in Neepawa with their daughter Donna and Bryan Scott, along with the four grandchildren, Logan and Danielle Clark, Bryce Scott and Jordan Twerdun and girlfriend Amy Clarke. Our special day was host- ed by Garnold and Elea- nor Scott, Brian’s parents. Danielle was home from U/BC for holidays and flew back on New Year’s Day, Logan and Bryce return to

studies at BU. We send birthday wishes to Marguerite Wareham for January 3rd and hope you have many, many more! Marguerite also welcomed a brand new great, great grandson, born on January 2nd. He just couldn’t wait for Mar- guerite’s birthday but he was too late for the New Year’s baby! Congratula- tions to his parents Colin and Myrranda Holden, to grandparents Onalea and Rob Holden and to great grandparents Dennis and Theresa Wareham, all of Brandon. We all send our best wishes! Several curlers from town took in the Strathclair Mixed Bonspiel last week-

end, there were ten rinks that enjoyed the fun and a delicious pulled pork sup- per was served Saturday. We know where great grandpa Bill Zahaiko spent last Sunday afternoon as he watched great grandson Morgan Geekie playing hockey with the Charlotte Chatters against the To- ronto Marlies. The Chat- ters won 5-0 with Mor- gan scoring one goal for the Chatters. This league game was in the Ameri- can Hockey League where Morgan now plays in Char- lotte N. Carolina. Elgin Hall took the Sunday service as we now return to regular timed services for 2019.

Nicholls Helping with Hurricane Michael Clean-up

By Mark kihn

B rian Nicholls, Minnedosa, is on the

move again – this time heading to Florida to mop- up after the ravages of Hurricane Michael in early October. Previously, the retired school teacher had been in Houston last April to re-build after Hurricane Harvey had torn through that area. Nicholls’ taste of relief work, through Samaritan’s Purse (SP), had gone over well with him, and so he’s headed back for two weeks at the end of January. This time though, he’ll be tear- ing house walls apart, spraying on mould disin- fectants, and cleaning up rubble instead of re-build- ing and painting. “I’m not sure what to expect,” he said. “I have heard from others that it’s tough man- ual work, and the need is endless.” Next week then, Nich- olls jets to Panama City,

Florida, via Winnipeg, Minneapolis, and Atlanta. Once there, he’ll head to the Panhandle town of Wewahitachi (the size of Minnedosa, apparently) where Samaritan’s Purse has established a base camp at a Baptist Church. He’ll work as part of a crew of about 12 from all parts of Canada. The military-style base camp means routine and regimen. Wake-up is usu- ally at 5:30 a.m., breakfast at 6 a.m., an assembly at 7 a.m., and then head out to the work-site. Supper is served at 6 p.m., an as- sembly at roughly 7 p.m., quiet time at 9 p.m., and lights-out at 10 p.m. The modest accommodations of Men and Ladies’ dorms may include the luxury of bunk beds, or just have mattresses on the floor. “We’ll make do whatever it is,” Nicholls said. With disaster relief, SP was busy in 2018. There were tornados in central

Iowa, wildfires in Califor- nia, flooding in central Wisconsin, another hurri- cane encroached the Caro- lina coast, then Hurricane Michael. In all of these situations, SP immediately set up volunteer help cen- tres and began clean-up work and re-build efforts. The faith-based orga- nization has main offices in Calgary and Boone, North Carolina. Frank- lin Graham, the son of the late evangelist Billy Graham, leads SP. Many people know the group through their “Shoebox” campaigns in Third World Countries, especially at Christmastime. Nicholls is respon- sible for most of his ex- penses. Those wishing to contribute, please mail any cheques his way (pay- able to Samaritan’s Purse) at Box 2117, Minnedosa, MB R0J 1E0. You will re- ceive a Samaritan’s Purse tax receipt from the relief agency.

Garbolinsky Feels Right at Home on the Ice

By KAREN MITCHELL

and we carried on all the

way until they graduated.

I absolutely loved my time

with them, they are a great group of girls. I have al- ways been interested in the junior curling. Being able to see the kids come up through the ranks and how they progress. Just overall watching them develop as

a person as well as a curler,

what a treat.” Jean’s competitive curling career has not been for the faint of heart, hav- ing seen her fair share of ups and downs. On several occasions Jean’s rink made it to the finals during pro- vincial bonspiels, loosing shy of taking home the tro- phy. In 1990, Jean played third to Gerri Cook’s rink, loosing the final in the Manitoba Scots in Bran- don. A highlight for Jean is winning the Senior Ladies Provincial in 2008, which moved her on to the Ca- nadian Senior Curling Championships in Prince Albert Saskatchewan. “We had made it to finals two or three times for the Cana- dian and lost out, so it was such a treat to finally make it!” exclaimed Jean. “The Minnedosa Curling Club has always been so sup- portive of their competi- tive curlers. When we won

so sup- portive of their competi- tive curlers. When we won the Provincials to head to

the Provincials to head to the Canadian, the club had a reception for us. They’ve always been so amazing.” For the last twenty plus years, Jean has been the Treasurer of the Curl- ing Club Inc. A board that has representation from all of the local leagues to over- see the curling club, and for six years she belonged to the Manitoba Curling Association Board out of Winnipeg. Along with that she has also taken all of her training for coaching and officiating. In 2016 she attended the Canada

Cup in Brandon where she worked with the statistics of the bonspiel. Jean officially hung up her competitive curl- ing hat in 2010 when she retired and her and Gary decided to spend the win- ters down south. However, from October to December

Photo by Karen Mitchell

she is still very active with the Ladies League and Day League in Minnedosa and the Curlettes in Brandon. Three days a week for three months is a nice way to keep this active lady ful- filled now and still allows her the time down south as well.

Jean’s latest win came on December 19th when her rink of Heather Lew- is, Wilma Jones and Joan Tegg defeated Sherri Fer- gusons’s rink at the Stream ‘N’ Wood Curlette League in Brandon. The Stream ‘N’ Wood Curlette League was started in the early 70’s to give people outside of Winnipeg a competitive league to practice for pro- vincials. This was the third win in the last five years for the ladies and a total over- all of six Curlette titles in their career. Hats off to you ladies on this fine achieve- ment!!! As Jean reflects back she stated, “Curling has been a very important part of my life. The friendships I have made through the years are second to none and the team dynam- ics I have experienced has been very rewarding. That’s what it’s all about, the relationships and the memories. An I have made several of both!

F rom the age of 19, Jean Garbolinsky has been

no stranger to the curling ice. Moving to Strathclair with her husband Gary, it was definitely the winter thing to do. “Everyone in town curled, so I figured I would to” explained Gar- bolinsky. And the rest as they say, is history! Moving to Minnedo- sa in 1975, Garbolinsky has been a part of the Minnedosa Curling Club ever since in one capacity or another. Bringing her children up playing and now her grandchildren, this is definitely a family sport. Between regular league curling, competi- tive curling and coaching, the winters were sure to fly by for Jean, which is exact- ly how she liked it. In the 80’s Jean and Donna Dill- abough started up a junior curling league. Starting off with grades four to six and then grades three to five, Jean loved the coaching aspect. A love that she con- tinued on until recently, as she dedicated six years to coaching and cheer- ing on the Jennifer Curle rink. “I started coaching these young girls when they were in grade eight

Florence Emily Swiscoski, loving wife, mother, grand- mother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend passed away in the early morning with family by her side. Florence was born in the Clanwilliam Municipality to John Emil and Emmy Larson and was raised on the family farm at Hill- top along with her ve siblings. After completing high school in Erickson, she began her nursing degree at Brandon General Hos- pital in 1953 and graduated as a registered nurse in 1956 with a gold medal for receiving the highest marks in her class, a distinc- tion of which she was very proud. In 1963, she accepted the position of Director of Nursing at Erickson Hospital which she held for 27 years. During the nal stage of her career Florence was instrumental in helping to plan the new Erickson Health Centre where she worked for the nal year of her nursing career, before retiring in 1990. While nursing in Kamloops, Florence met and married Daniel McDonald with whom she had three daughters; Sherri in 1961, Wendy in 1962 and Melanie in 1965. She raised her girls with love and devotion as a single mother, busy in their activities of gure skating, 4-H, curling, and school sports. Florence’s family were thrilled when she married Fred Swiscoski in 1983 and together, they built their home in Erickson where so many family and friends gathered to enjoy holiday celebrations, reunions and simple drop in visits. Florence enjoyed travelling throughout the years across Canada and many trips abroad. She and Fred also enjoyed many summers camping in their 5th wheel, often joined by their grand- children to enjoy shing and spending time with Gramma and Poppa. Other hobbies included reading, cooking, gardening, shopping for the newest fashions, and keeping her home welcom- ing to all. Florence was deeply involved in the Erickson community as a volunteer, 4-H instructor, Legion member, hospital auxiliary executive, palliative care board member just to name a few. She was always so proud to represent the community she loved. Florence had incredible strength during all the many health challenges she had to face. She accepted these with grace and calmness, which was so admirable. Protecting her loved ones from the hurt was her unsel sh way. Florence was pre-deceased by her parents Emil and Emmy, brothers Roger and Lawrence, and her sister Edna, along with Fred’s parents John and Nellie, brother Alex, and sister Rosie. She will be greatly missed by her loving husband of 34 years Fred, daughter Sherri (Brian) Fleming of Brandon, MB and their children Brad (Krystal) Fleming and son Daxon, Dani (Jason) Wood, their daughter Hadley and son Nash, and Teighan Fleming; daughter Wendy (Jim) Stolk of Taber, AB and sons Mack and Cade Arnold; daughter Melanie McDonald (Allan Arnsdorf) of Saskatoon, SK and son Holden McDonald; brothers Gerald (Marilyn) Larson of Edmonton and Del (Nora) Lar- son of Winnipeg; sisters-in-law Leona Smith, Gertie Levandoski, Alex’s partner Evelyn, brothers- in-law Dave (Glenda) Swiscoski, John Swiscoski and partner Pat, and Reg Eamer along with many loving nieces, nephews and community friends.

She later met Joe Burton and they were married on October 19th, 1951. Mary worked in the Neepawa hospital for a few years and then decided that working with her husband on the farm and raising a family was what she really wanted to do. Mary had a great love and passion for many things in her life. She enjoyed painting and spent many hours creating beautiful pieces for family and friends to enjoy. Her love of knitting and quilting kept her busy for many years. She was always busy with a project for her family or for someone in need. is passion eventually led to her teaching a knitting class on Tuesday after- noons and she took great pride in passing along her knowledge and tricks of the trade. She spent many afternoons and evenings at the Minnedosa bowling alley with her friends. If you were ever trying to nd her on a Wednesday afternoon you didn’t have to look further than the bowling alley. Mary was quite the “social butter y” and enjoyed her time spent with the Red Hats group. She took great pride in being a member and they became like family to her. Her zest for life was contagious and she always had an open ear for anyone who needed. Family meant everything to Mary and her children and grand-children were a great source of pride and joy. She rarely ever missed a family gathering and was always teaching them some- thing. Whether it was how to garden, knit, paint, bake and even golf and drive the cart. Her grand- children spent many summers with them at Sandy Lake, camping and loving lake life. Mary made a huge impact on anyone who had the pleasure of meeting her and she will be dearly missed by all. White’s Funeral Home – Minnedosa in care of arrangements.

She returned to nursing in Erickson in the early 1960’s and to school in the 70’s to obtain her Registered Psychiatric Nurse diploma. After retirement in 1982, she divided her time between the farm, the cottage at Sandy Lake and as Ernie became ill, Brandon. After Ernie’s passing Ruth eventually moved back to Brandon’s East End, residing at Lion’s Manor. Ruth’s next move was to Lindenwood Manor in Winnipeg, then to St. Norbert PCH. Cremation has taken place, a burial service will be held in Erickson in June. NEIL BARDAL FUNERAL CENTRE

FRANCES IRENE MCDOWELL PENGELLY February 13th, 1924 – December 30th, 2018

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden pass- ing of Fran Pengelly. Fran was born in Gleichen, Alberta, the rst child of Agnes and Willard McDowell. Life was di cult on the homestead at Sunnynook, AB; due to many periods of drought they moved to another farm near Delburne, AB. Fran completed her high school here and worked in a local bank before enlisting with the R.C.A.F. in November of 1942. She served in Halifax, N.S. and Summerside, P.E.I. until the end of W.W.II. She received her discharge papers on February 2nd, 1945. On September 7th, 1944 she married her high school sweetheart, Pilot O cer David Pengelly, when he returned from active service in Europe. When both were discharged they moved to Edmonton, AB where Fran opened a dress shop and Dave pursued higher education. ey moved to Guelph, ON in 1950 where they lived for 32 years and raised their 4 children. In 1982 they “retired” to Erickson, MB to farm with Harvey and Carol. Fran and Dave built their own home; drove tractor, grain truck, and combine; cared for grandchildren; quilted and crafted; collected insects and square danced. ey were active with the Legion, Kerr Lake Hall and travelling. Fran moved to Victoria Landing Retirement Home in Brandon in 2015. She always enjoyed visiting Ontario and Erickson to see family and friends, all the while lamenting not being able to help as before. Fran will be missed by children Doug, Harvey (Carol), Murray (Liz) and Lyanne (Al), ten grandchildren, ve great grandchildren, sisters Doreen and Bernice and brother Jack, numerous relatives and friends. She was predeceased by husband Dave, daughter-in-law Daele and grand- daughters Candice and Rachel. As per her wishes cremation has taken place and a private family burial will be held at a later date. If desired a donation in her memory may be made to the Commonwealth Air Training Plan Foundation, Box 3, Grp.520, R.R.5, Brandon, R7A 5Y5 or charity of your choice.

Congratulations to Malcolm and Shirley Rose on the arrival of their first great grandchild, a wee girl was born in Brandon on December 28th.
