BRENNAND: AJ, August 13, 1922 - January 08, 2015. Alexander James passed away at the West-Man Nursing Home in Virden in his 93rd year. He was born in the Archie Municipality to Frank and Mary Brennand on the 13th of August, 1922. He grew up on the farm with his eight siblings. At age 18 he joined the army and became part of the 13 Field Artillery Regiment, serving overseas from 1941-45. He took part in the D-Day assault, landing in Normandy and attained the rank of Sergeant. His oldest brother George was wounded in the Dieppe raids and Alex was with him when he died. Alex has written a story of his war experience and it is being processed by the Legion. It was very hard to return to civilian life. Alex spent two winters at a lumber camp at Vermillion Bay ON then began farming. In 1950 he married Cora McKibbon and they had two children, Dale and Glynis. They were involved in Manson and community affairs. Alex drove a school van, was on the school board and also tried his hand at auctioneering. Cora passed away in 1963. In 1966 Alex married Peggy Whitton of CJATC Rivers who had two children, Cheryl and Bill, and they soon became one family. They continued to farm until 1976 when they moved to Elkhorn. Alex opened Brennand’s Billiards and Barber Shop, but sold the pool hall to his son-in-law “Bubba the barber”. He would rather play pool than operate a business. Alex next tried cottage life in Oak Lake, where he spent a few summers fishing with his Uncle Jim Mundell, but that was not enough action for him, so he then began to travel. Alex was an active working member of the Legion and received his 60 years pin. He had held most of the offices, including that of Zone Commander. The Brennand family was a gregarious lot. They had many family reunions and get-togethers. Saturday night was pub night and along with their friends they had a great time. Alex and Peggy did a lot of travelling. He went back to Holland and retraced the route the 13 Field Artillery Regiment had taken. One memorable trip taken was with his brothers Morris and Gordon to England and Scotland to find their roots which they did. Alex never lost touch with his old Army buddies of the 13 Field Artillery Regiment and outlived all of them. Alex had a competitive nature whether it be curling, golf, horseshoes or challenging his grandsons to chin-up and arm wrestling. Alex and Peggy moved to Virden, although Alex spent his last years in the nursing home, he never lost his sense of humour. When the girls visited, it was always a hug and kiss; when his grandsons came, it was a click of the heels and a smart salute. Alex will be remembered by: Wife Peggy; son Dale; daughter Glynis (Ron) Lund; Grandsons Ash, Bob (Brigit); Great-Grandchildren Sofia and Oliver; step-daughter Cheryl (Dave) Climie; step-grandson Todd (Linda) Climie; step-great- grandchildren Scott, Darryl and Corey; step-granddaughter Brigette (Jim) McCarthy; step-great-granddaughters Kyra and Sarah; step-son Bill (Betty) Whitton; step-granddaughters Lori, Brenda (Keith), Maci B. and Marshall; brother Gordon and Evelyn Brennand; sisters Francie Stonehouse and Shirley McColl; sisters-in-law Muriel Brennand, Molly Treloar, Mattie Treloar; aunt Evelyn Mundell as well as numerous nephews and nieces. Alex is predeceased by: Wife Cora (McKibbon); parents Frank and Mary Brennand; brothers George and Morris Brennand; sisters and brothers-in-law Bertha and George Lewis, Mary (Eddie) and Dan Stonehouse, Myrtle Brennand and Lillias and Everett Westwood; sisters-in-law Georgina Brennand, Reta McMannis and Beryl McMannis; brothers- in-law Frank Stonehouse, Jim McColl, Doug Treloar and Bob Treloar; grandson Chad Lund. The service was truly a celebration of Alex’s life.
“Well done, thou good and faithful servant”

DEURBROUCK: Sergeant Ovide “Ollie” Louis Richard Deurbrouck passed away peacefully on Friday, January 23, 2015, with his loving wife, children and son-in-law by his side. Ollie died the way he lived, generously sharing his love, kindness and sense of humor with all who helped him and provided him support throughout his long journey. Ollie was born on March 20, 1932, to Ernest and Martha Deurbrouck, on a farm near Naicam, Saskatchewan and was adored by his older sisters Mary, Lea and Denise. He joined the military at the age of 16 and set off to serve his country. He was a radio operator during the Korean War and was stationed in many locations all over the world. Ollie met the love of his life while stationed in Winnipeg and married Bernice Mary Rutkowski on May 16, 1959. Ollie devoted his life to being Bernice’s kind and loving husband, and a wonderful father to Catherine (Jack Moes) and Michael (Dorothy Paszkowski). He supported all of their dreams and endeavours and was so proud of their accomplishments. He provided unconditional love and support through disappointments and difficult times. Ollie and Bernice were stationed in Shilo, Manitoba for eight years. Following Ollie’s retirement from the military in 1976, the family moved to Brandon and he enthusiastically embarked on other careers as a butcher at Brandon Frozen Foods and as a foreman and salesman for Burns Meats Ltd. During these days he made and nurtured many lifelong friends. Ollie touched the lives of everyone with whom he came in contact. Friends were so happy to see and chat with him because of his positive nature and enthusiasm. He was genuinely interested in everyone he met and gathered friends wherever he went. He had a way of touching peoples’ hearts and making them feel special. He was a kind and helpful neighbour, establishing lifelong relationships with friends from 20th Street, Hummingbird Lane and River Heights Terrace. A highlight of his day was spending time with the gang at A&W. Ollie had many interests and dove into them with all of his heart. He was known for his extensive and amusing collections, being lucky at the Legion meat draws, hosting gourmet dinners with Bernice, operating the sewing machine, cheering on the Wheat Kings with his friends in the arena southend, and enjoying country and western music. Our home was always filled with music, fueling the appreciation and vocation of music in his children and grandchildren. Ollie loved working for his community and helping others. He was a member of the Shilo Men’s Club and the Knights of Columbus. He led Boy Scouts, organized hockey tournaments, delivered Meals on Wheels, ushered at St. Augustine’s Church, organized fund raisers, and sold meat at the Sobeys ice table. Ollie turned his cancer diagnosis into something incredibly positive. He was a founding member of the Westman Prostate Cancer Support Group. Ollie threw himself into the role of President and for many years provided support and information to men and their families, making many more life-long friends along the way. He led Relay for Life Teams and supported the Canadian Cancer Society. Ollie loved being a Grandpa and tirelessly supported and delighted in the activities of his grandchildren: Aaron and Ainsley Check; Bobbie-Jean, Juliane and Brandon Deurbrouck and step- grandsons Noel, Will and Justin Moes. He also loved that Tyler and Danielle Gage called him “Grandpa”. We know Ollie appreciated the love and support of his many friends during his final days and we thank Dianne LeClerc, Linda Kennedy and Murray Gilmer, Deacon John and Carol McKenzie, Chaplain Evert Busink, Chaplain Joe Ball, nephew Ted Rusywich, niece Claudette Rusywich, Claudia Nieradka, Father Patrick, and everyone who spent time with Dad during his final days. There are no words to express our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the Angel Nurses and Aides on A3 Palliative who worked so hard to make Dad’s final days comfortable and provided such support and kindness to our family.
