KISSOCK: With the loving support of his wife and daughter, Robert Lyle Kissock passed away peacefully on September 1, 2015, after a brief illness. The eldest child of John and Wilhemina Kissock, Bob was born in Carberry, Manitoba, on October 28, 1927. After receiving his schooling in Carberry, Bob went to work for the Manitoba Power Commission in 1944. Three years later, he began a new career, taking on the role of driver, and later heavy equipment operator, in the Base Transportation department at Camp Shilo. Bob remained in this department until his retirement in 1988. While others would focus on the many Driver of the Year awards Bob received, he preferred to remember his adventures on the road. His favourite stories included the time he backed the road grader over someone’s Toyota, as well as the time a woman threw a shovel at his snow plow after he filled in the driveway she had just finished clearing. When not on the job, Bob could often be found at the curling rink, his many trophies a testament to his skill at the game. Bob was the consummate people person. His outgoing, friendly nature allowed him to sit on a bench, wherever he was, and find a new friend to talk to. He loved having get-togethers at the house and always went out of his way to ensure that everyone was having a good time and that all glasses were kept full. Predeceased by his parents, four brothers (Alexander, Glen, William, Alan), and one sister (Evelyn), Bob is survived by his wife of 53 years, Charlotte, and two children, Heather and Peter. Bob was a member of the Brandon branch of the Army, Navy, and Air Force Club, as well as the Carberry branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. A private ceremony will take place.

WILLIAMS: Phyllis Dorothe Williams (nee Janz). Phyllis Williams, a long-time resident of the Souris area, died August 7, 2015 with her family at her side. Phyllis was born July 2, 1928 at Minitonas, Manitoba to Archie and Bea Janz. She was the youngest of their five children. She told us stories about helping her father on their farm and of the many childhood pranks she pulled with her sisters and brother. Tragedy struck her family when her brother, Henry, was killed in a farm accident at the age of seven. Mum left home at age 14 to accompany her sister Jean on her first teaching job at Rosa School, near Pine River, Manitoba. Both Jean and Mum told great stories about their life together at the rural school. Mum moved to Souris, to help her sister, Isabel Janz with her sons, Murray and Dennis. They have a strong bond with Auntie Phil as a result. In Souris, she worked as a seamstress and hospital aide. Here she met her husband and best friend, Ross Williams. They married November 13, 1948 and produced a brood of eight children; Lynne (Paul Merkeley), Cranbrook, B.C.; Gerry (Carole Campbell), Souris, Manitoba; Ginny (Ron Zdan), Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; Brenda (Gerald Puhach), Elphinstone, Manitoba; Holly (Ken White), Brandon, Manitoba; Kathy Hainsworth, Souris, Manitoba; Byron (Margaret McGowan), Winnipeg, Manitoba; and Guy (Rhonda Zimmerman), Souris, Manitoba.

She was blessed with two great grandchildren, Eli Puhach and Ryder Hainsworth. Phyllis and Ross worked their mixed farm near Menteith until their retirement in 1985. She was known for her hard work and beautiful vegetable and flower gardens. She was a skilled seamstress, using her talents to craft a diverse range of clothing from wedding dresses to uniforms. She was very active in the community teaching 4-H sewing, cooking, home design, and public speaking, being honoured with a 4-H Lifetime Achievement Award. She belonged to the Toastmasters Club, the CWL, the Whitefield-Breezelawn Guild, and the Souris Drop-In Center. Phyllis and Ross were both staunch, life-long supporters of the NDP. They were influential in raising funds to build the Souris Arena and the Souris Community Hall. Furthermore, they were passionate about the development of education, sports and music in their children. Both graciously welcomed and shared their home with others, always making room for that extra someone at their dinner table. Upon retirement Phyllis and Ross moved to Souris, where they spent many happy years together. After Ross's death in 1996, Phyllis continued to support her family, church and community, residing in their Souris home until 2011, spending her remaining three years in the Souris Personal Care Home. Mum is survived by her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, sister, Jean (Rocky) Forest of BC and sister-in-law Shirley (Carl) Mitton of AB, numerous nieces and nephews, neighbours and friends. She was predeceased by her husband, Ross, and two sisters, Isabel (Doug) Janz and Dornie (Gerry) Bouchard, and her brother, Henry Janz., Chas (Mae) Williams, Jack (Helen) Williams, Jean (Wally) Guy, Ken (Ruth) Williams, Ruth (Stan) Berry and Harvey Williams.
