STANICK: Jeffrey James Stanick, Brandon, Manitoba, 45 years of age September 9th, 1970 - August 19th, 2016. We are very sad to announce the passing of Jeff on Friday, August 19th in Brandon Manitoba. Jeff’s passions were many and in no order he loved his family and friends. He would go to great lengths to ensure you were aware of his reliability when needed for anything at all. Jeff was an all around outdoorsman. He never turned down an opportunity to go hunting, fishing, quading, or sledding. He would love nothing more than to have people to his cabin and take them all around the lake. All the while be very guarded with his fishing spots. He organized numerous fishing and hunting trips with family and friends and became well known and respected as the General. Jeff came across as a big tough guy but really just had a big heart. His kindness was as big as his presence when he entered a room. Jeff had good morals and demanded the same from his family and friends, and in no uncertain terms would he miss the opportunity to set you straight if you fell short. Jeff had a natural entrepreneurial drive and was very successful at every business adventure he approached. Jeff started work at the Brick in Brandon and remained at the top of the charts for top sales across Canada. He realized his own potential and not long after opened his own Brick Franchise in Thompson, Manitoba in 2006. Throughout this time Jeff was able to purchase and develop properties including his pride possession in the Grand Valley. Jeff saw this land and home as his paradise. Jeff is predeceased by his mother Cindy Stanick and will be missed by many but it’s impossible to measure the sadness from his family. He is survived by his Dad, Brian Stanick, his brother Michael Stanick and daughter Abbey, his sister Raquelle and husband Brian Baker and children Tyler, (daughter Paisley) and Camryn, his sister Shannon and husband Chad Daciuk and children Payton and Macy. Funeral Service was held on Thursday, August 25th at 2:00 p.m. at St. Augustine’s Roman Catholic Church. Interment at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. Fellowship followed at the Victoria Inn Imperial Ball Room. In lieu of flowers the family ask that you make donations to Westman Opportunities Inc. 1544 10th Street Brandon, Manitoba R7A 4H7.

McCALLUM: With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Gloria McCallum on Monday, August 22, 2016, at the age of 76 years. Youngest daughter to Frank and Elsie Bullied of Brandon, Gloria was born on September 16, 1939. Family was a big part of growing up and many times were spent with aunts, uncles and cousins in day to day life. Gloria and her sisters spent many a summer out on the farm just south of Brandon, helping with the care and harvest of the family gardens. On August 6, 1960 Gloria married her “Lovey” Keith and they began their life together. The first few years of marriage saw moves to places like Regina and Flin Flon as Keith’s retail career took them to different locations. In 1964 they made the move back home to Brandon and purchased their jewellery business. Working at the store while raising their three children, Gloria also enjoyed the active social life that came with Keith’s involvement in the hockey community. They developed numerous enduring friendships during those years and were blessed with countless wonderful memories. Prior to Keith’s sudden passing in 2013, they had also enjoyed many wonderful vacations with both family and friends, and had spent the previous 18 winters under the Arizona sunshine. Whether it was lifelong friends, hockey friends, or “the girls” who spent decades getting together multiple times a week to “get some exercise”, Gloria held her friendships very close to her heart and they meant the world to her. And her creativity was demonstrated as she came up with many ideas for inventing and sewing costumes, crafting, decorating and gourmet cooking. Gloria was predeceased by husband Keith, her parents Frank and Elsie Bullied, and eldest sister Ann Bullied. She leaves to mourn and cherish her memory: son Brent (Donna); daughters Jodi (David) and Kellie; sister Billie Kezin (Bullied); sister-in-law Cheryl McCallum, and several loving nieces and nephews. A Celebration of Gloria’s life will be held on Monday, August 29, 2016 at 2:30 p.m. at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332- 8th Street, with Kim Lewarne, Certified Funeral Celebrant, officiating. A private family interment will follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make a donation to the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation ‘Cancer Services’, 150 McTavish Avenue East, Brandon, MB, R7A 2B3; Funds for Furry Friends, 208-740 Rosser Avenue, Brandon, MB, R7A 0K9; or Brandon Humane Society, 2200-17th Street East, Brandon, MB, R7A 7M6.
