HOLOWICK: With family at her side, Diane Holowick peacefully passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Thursday, May 21, 2015. In Dauphin, Manitoba, Diane was born on July 17, 1954, daughter of the late Mary and Peter Merko. After high school in Dauphin, she made her home and raised her family in Brandon. Diane always welcomed you with open arms, ensured that you were very well fed and insisted on having a doggy bag and ample snacks for the road. She loved cooking and sharing the fruits of her labour. Travel to Chicago, Toronto, Las Vegas and Alberta was always a true adventure. She enjoyed gardening, all sorts of puzzles, watching curling, reading and 1980's music. Diane was a gentle, caring person with a very generous heart, and an amazing sense of humour, even after her dire diagnosis. While in hospital, Diane always greeted us with a smile and expected a smile in return. She was remarkably courageous facing an incurable disease ; never complaining about anything. Forever cherishing her memory are daughters Melanie (Kevin) Headland, Amber (Rob) Pink, Megan Holowick, and sister Shirley (Peter) Brezden. She will be dearly missed by grandchildren Ashley Holowick, Kennedy and Sydney Headland and Hunter Pink. Deeply saddened are nephews Noel (Maureen) Brezden and children Emily and Mabel, and Julian (Nelly) Brezden and children Isabella and Maxwell all of Edmonton. Diane leaves behind numerous devoted and compassionate friends. At Memories Chapel on Wednesday, May 27, 2015, a Funeral Service was held, officiated by Rev. Peter Brezden, with interment at Brandon Cemetery. Reception and fellowship followed. To honour Diane's memory, a donation could be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 415 1st Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 2W8. We are grateful to everyone for their support, compassion and prayers which gave Diane courage; and strengthened those who love her. May Her Memory be Eternal! Rest in Peace, dear Diane.
Meet You At The Gate
A beautiful garden now stands alone,missing the one who nurtured itBut now she is gone,Her flowers still bloom, and the sun, it still shines,But the rain is like tear drops, for the ones left behind,The weeds lay waiting to take the garden’s beauty away,But the beautiful memories of its keeper are in our hearts to stay,she loved every flower, even some that were weeds,So much love she would plant with each little seed,But just like her flowers, she was part of God’s plan,So when it was her time, he reached down his hand,He looked through the Garden searching for the best,That's when he found Diane, it was her time to rest,It was hard for those who loved her, to just let her go,But God had a spot in his garden that needed a gentle soul, so when you start missing Diane, remember if you just wait,When God has a spot in his garden,She'll meet you at the gate...

GREGORY: At the Assiniboine Palliative Care Unit, on Saturday, May 16, 2015, after a short and sudden illness with cancer, John Roy Gregory left us, with his brother Larry and sister-in-law Marg by his side. Roy was born in McConnell, Manitoba on January 21, 1933 and was the fifth child to Jack and Helen Gregory. At a very young age, Roy moved with the Gregory family to Hamiota, Manitoba where he became older brother to best sibling Larry. Roy attended school in Hamiota and in 1955 he joined the Canadian Armed Forces. While on leave, before going overseas, Roy met his future wife of 57 years Sonia. While overseas Roy courted his future bride with plenty of letters being exchanged between them. They married on April 19, 1958 and the next year their first and only child was born at the Hamiota Hospital. In 1971, Roy and his family left Hamiota and moved to Thompson, Manitoba where he was employed at INCO and later Indian and Northern Affairs. In 1974, Roy and family moved once again, to Brandon, Manitoba. Here he was self-employed as a carpenter and remained here for the rest of his life, building himself a garage at the age of 80 years. Roy is survived by his daughter Barbara (Morley), grandchildren Shea Wiley, Aaron Wiley, Rhianan Gregory (Justin), Rachel Robertson (Cody), Emmett Robertson, great-granddaughter Helena, brother Larry (Marg) Gregory, sister-in-law Olga Harapiak, ten nieces, five nephews and numerous great nieces and nephews. Roy was predeceased by his wife of 57 years Sonia (by 48 days), parents Jack and Helen Gregory, brothers Lyle, Bernie, Glen (Ruth), sister Eunice Everett (Wilfred), in-laws Mary and Mike Harapiak, brothers-in-law Stanley (Arlene) and Orest Harapiak and nephew Dean Harapiak. Over the years Roy enjoyed golfing and fixing antique cars of which he had quite a few. Roy's attitude was if it needed to get done nothing would wait with him. Everyone will miss him and his dry sense of humour. No formal funeral service will be held. If friends so desire, donations in memory of Roy may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 415-1st Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 2W8.
