WILSON: John (Jack) Edmund Norris Wilson of Russell, Manitoba passed on  October 16, 2014, at the Russell Hospital, with family by his side.  He left to join the love of his life, Grace.  He is survived by his daughters  Jacquie (Ed) Zimmer, Valerie (Terry) Kearns, and son Jim (Janice).  He is also survived by 4 grandchildren, Christopher (Angela), Trevor, Jeffrey,  and Jennifer and 6 great grandchildren, Hannah, Madelyn, Siena, Ava, Carmen and Owen.  He was predeceased by his parents, William and Bertha (Cairns) Wilson, his 5 older sisters, Marjorie, Eileen, Wilma, Elmer, Gwen, and his beloved wife, Grace (Simms). Dad was born on September 25, 1925 in Russell, Manitoba. In 1944 he proudly served on the HMCS Ft. Erie as a radioman. He married his schoolmate Grace Simms in 1947 and they were together until her death in September, 2009.  Dad graduated from law school in 1950 and practiced law with his father, in Russell, until 1964. He took over his father's practice and continued until his retirement in 1989.  Dad was a voracious reader, mostly of local history books, WW1 and WW2 material.  Reading was his passion and he had the most remarkable memory. Dad was devoted to his hometown of Russell and was always proud to serve his community.  He was a sportsman in his youth playing baseball, and a devoted curler and golfer most of his life. He enjoyed the outdoors, friends, music, and a good story.  Dad spent much of his time at the family cottage at Silver Beach and referred to it as heaven on earth. He loved to fish, play horseshoes, explore the countryside, cross country ski, spend time with family and his annual chicken shoot. He often commented that "such are the vicissitudes of life" and I guess this  is your final transition Dad. We would like to express our appreciation to the staff of the Russell PCH for their wonderful care of him the last 6 years. We would also like to thank the many friends and family in Russell who have extended kindness and compassion to Dad over the past few years. We will never forget the many ways you enriched Dad’s life as well as ours. His love for his community never wavered. A celebration of life was held in Russell on October 21, 2014 and his ashes were interred with his wife Grace, at the Russell Cemetery. Honorary pallbearers were Jack Dow, Peter Haliuk and Jim Hamilton. If friends so desire donations can be made to the ALS Society of Manitoba.
You are loved by many and will be greatly missed Dad.

LAMONT: Cherri Maria Lamont (Cliffe) of Brandon, Manitoba, passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on October 22, 2014 at the age of 49 years. Cherri was born, June 4, 1965 in Brandon. She attended school in Brandon at King George, till they moved to Ste Rose, when she was 11 years old. She attended school in Ste Rose for one year before moving to Dauphin. In Dauphin, she attended Barker, MacKenzie and DRCSS. Over the years she spent in Dauphin, Cherri made a lot of life-time friends that are still very much an important part of her life. While Cherri lived in Dauphin, she was employed at Stickie's Restaurant. Cherri then moved back to Brandon in 1984, where she found employment at San Francisco Gifts, Hair Today, Vinnie's Salon, Chatter's Salon and A&W. She was also employed at Brandon University, Sweet Temptations and her last place of employment was Tender Cuts Meat. Over the years that she was employed, she made a lot of friends that have been there to the very end. Cherri had also moved back to Brandon to look after her Grandmother, who she lived with. She looked after her grandmother both at home and in the Assiniboine Centre until she passed away. Cherri made daily trips to the Assiniboine, making sure she was comfortable in her last days. In 1989, Cherri met Ron Lamont and they started dating and then living together. In 1992, they were blessed with their first child, Dallas. Cherri and Ron were married on Dallas's first birthday. They were then blessed with their second son, Dustyn in 1996. As the boys grew up and were involved in sports, it was a family affair. Both Cherri and Ron were coaches with the boys as they played baseball. Then when the boys got involved in football, Cherri was an important part of the fund raising, looking after the canteens, organizing other fund raisers, like socials and such. This all helping the boys and their friends develop in the sport they loved. She assisted in the WMYF being able to send teams to Thunder Bay and teams playing in the Winnipeg League. When the boys moved up to High School Football, so did Cherri. She helped run the canteen at both Crocus Plains, where Dallas attended, and Neelin, where Dustyn attended. She followed the boys to games all over, supporting them and their many team-mates. Many of them referred to her as “Mom” or “Momma Bear.” She was very protective of her cubs, and as such, she gained the respect of many, old and young ones, that have been friends for years. She was a great part of the WMYF, Crocus Plains and Neelin Football families. Cherri is survived by her husband Ron, her two sons Dallas and Dustyn, and grandson Malakai. She is also survived by her sister Canda Chafe, her husband Geoff and their two children Mitchell and Brookelyn. She has one surviving Uncle, George Peary and his wife Sylvia and one surviving Aunt, Joyce Brown and many cousins. Cherri was predeceased by her parents Victoria Yakemishin and step father William, her Aunt and Uncle Charles and Ethel Hean and her Uncle Stan Brown.
