LISKE: Esther Evelyn (Kerbs)Esther was born on June 24, 1932 at Last Mountain SK to Godfrey and Ella Kerbs. She attended the Havelock school along with her sisters, Flora and Marie. Growing up, Esther loved gardening, drawing, spirituality but maybe most of all music - specifically playing the piano. Esther’s spiritual interests led her to baptism in the Seventh-day Adventist church in 1943. Her love of the Lord and music presented a wonderful opportunity for her to tour the Man - Sask conference playing piano for a series of evangelistic crusades. It was one such tour that led her to Manitoba where she met her husband to be. On Oct. 14, 1951 Esther married Roland Allison Liske and moved to Manitoba where they farmed together near Inglis. Esther and Roland had three children; Donna Marlene (‘52), Jerry Dean (‘57) and Thomas Roland (‘60). The couple lived and farmed there until Roland’s passing in 1977. After ‘77, Esther moved from the Inglis area, calling many places home as she ambitiously hoped to assist in some church “planting” projects. Upon her son Jerry’s urging, she happily returned to the Brandon MB area and immediately became an active and musical member of the Brandon SDA church. She was happy to be near some family again and to have close support of her son Jerry in her declining years. Early in 2016, Esther began to develop some health issues which eventually led to her passing on May 14, 2016. Esther died peacefully in Brandon hospital in the presence of her sons and a few close friends. Esther awaits the joyous reunion with her Savior and loved ones. She is predeceased by her parents - Godfrey (;77) and Ella Kerbs (’93), her sister Flora Clark (’76), her husband Roland (’77), and her daughter Donna (’84). Left to mourn are : her sister Marie McCalla of Meridian, ID, her son Jerry Liske of Brandon MB, her son Thomas Liske of Saskatoon SK, and (estranged) grandson Jason Liske of Sidney BC, along with her beloved Brandon SDA church community. The Funeral Service will be held at the Seventh Day Adventist Church, 3319 Park Avenue, Brandon on Friday, May 20, 2016 at 1:00 pm. Pastor Rick Harwood will officiate. A reception will follow. Interment will be in the Freefield South Cemetery, Inglis, Manitoba . In lieu of flowers please donate to ADRA Canada at www.adra.ca

HAGE: Marinus (Rien) Hage passed away peacefully at Rideau Park surrounded by his family on May 12, 2016. He was born in Nieuwerkerk, The Netherlands on February 23, 1926. He attended school until the age of 14, and began working on a neighbour’s farm plowing the fields with horses. During the war, when Holland was invaded by Germany, the province he was living in was flooded and the family was forced to evacuate to another province and it was here that he met the love of his life, Tetje (Tet) Postma. They were married in 1952 and two weeks later, they immigrated to Canada to begin a new, exciting chapter of their lives. After arriving at Pier 21 in Halifax, N.S., they boarded a train for Portage la Prairie, Manitoba where Dad worked on a mixed farm for four years. During that time, they had three children, all under the age of two. In 1957 they moved to Douglas, Manitoba where they had one more child. Dad was employed with Ross Farms for more than 25 years. Ross Mitchell was more than just his employer; they remained friends right until his passing and the family really appreciates all of his visits and taking Dad for drives as he so enjoyed that. Dad also worked as a Custodian at Elton Collegiate in Forrest, Manitoba with Mom by his side for 7 years before retiring and in the early 1980’s they moved to Brandon, Manitoba. He took great pride in his garden every summer. Mom and Dad did a lot of travelling. They returned to Holland 16 times, they travelled to New Zealand 3 times, trips to B.C. and Ontario to visit family as well as camping in Killarney, Manitoba in the summer. In 2009 they made a trip back to Pier 21 in Halifax and it was wonderful to hear them reminiscing about what the initial trip was like, about how excited and nervous they were. Rien is survived by his wife, Tet. Four children: Tina (Dale), Arthur (Camy), Faye (Art), and Dick (Cathy). Seven grandchildren: Regan, Kerry, Robert, Mila, Stacey, Jeff, and Chandra. Five great grandchildren: Kristina, Broc, Cruz, Katelyn, and Owen. He is predeceased by his father, mother, brother and sister.
