HANSON: It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Linda Hanson, on Sunday, December 27, 2015, just six days before her 92nd birthday. Remaining to forever cherish her memory are her daughter, Janet Nylen of Oakbank, Manitoba; granddaughter, Tracy Nylen of Winnipeg; as well as her grandson and his family, James (Pennie), Jaime, Trinity and Chase Nylen of Erickson, Manitoba. She was predeceased by her husband Jack in 1986 and her son Bob in 2002. On January 2, 1924, Linda was born in Bacup, Lanceshire, England. Near the beginning of WWII, she met her future husband, when he was stationed in England and came to visit his cousins. After the war they were married and Linda crossed the Atlantic with many other war brides who came to Canada. Originally, thinking that they would move back to England in a year or so, they made their first home together in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, where Bob was born. In 1948, they moved to Brandon, Manitoba where they lived for over 40 years. They made many special friends in Brandon and Linda never regretted not moving back to England, although she did go back to visit there several times. Linda was a trained bookkeeper and had an aptitude for accounting, but in 1966 she went back to school to pursue her true passion; helping people; and she became a Welfare Worker. Linda truly enjoyed her work but took early retirement to care for her husband. Soon after her husband died, Linda moved to Oakbank to be closer to her children, but she always kept in touch with her Brandon friends as well as many friends she still had in England. Linda enjoyed traveling and her trips took her to Jamaica, Florida, California, Nevada, Arizona, the Maritimes, British Columbia as well as England. She was very resourceful and talented and willing to try different challenges which included building the much loved cabin at 5th St. N in Clear Lake, Manitoba, upholstering furniture, sewing wedding and grad dresses, to name but a few. Linda also enjoyed wallpapering, gardening, cooking her family’s favorites and up until the last 18 months or so, she kept active with current affairs, crosswords and of course her favorite, Sudoku. In compliance with Linda’s wishes, no formal Funeral Service will be held. A private family gathering will be held at a later date. The family would like to extend many thanks to the care and compassion given to our Mum/Grandma by the staff at Betel Personal Care Home in Selkirk over the last 11 months. In lieu of flowers, kindly consider a donation to a charity of choice.

BELL: It is with profound sadness that the family announces the passing of Shirley Agnes Bell of Fairview Home, Brandon, MB on Monday, December 7, 2015, at the age of 84. Shirley was born on the McTaggart family farm at Harding, MB on August 6, 1931, only daughter of Roy and Ivy McTaggart. She married Mervyn Bell on June 10, 1950, and they farmed together at Harding for 34 years. Upon retirement, they moved to Brandon in June 1984. Shirley was pre-deceased by her husband of 63 years in June 2013. She leaves behind their children: Myrna (Dan) Collens, Phyllis (Floyd) Miller, Carol Ann (Claude) Lepine, and Brian (Margaret) Shaw. There are 10 grandchildren and spouses: Jennifer (Kevin) Hyde, Leanne (Matt) DeVliegere, and Gordon (Zineta) Collens; Sherri (David) Kyle, Derek (Jodi) Miller, Regan (Natalie) Miller, and Naomi Miller; Jordan Lepine; Brian James Shaw (Gwenda Olson) and Brett (Chris) Purdy. Nineteen great grandchildren include Emily, Alex, and Isaiah Hyde, Paige and Brady DeVliegere, Taber, Selina and Malaina Collens; Michelle, Rylan, Logan, and Declan Kyle, Zane, Sage, and Reeve Miller, Hayden and Rory Miller; and Josh and Miranda Purdy. She is also survived by her brother, Clare (Peggy) McTaggart and sister-in-law, Marilyn Anderson, plus numerous nieces and nephews. Shirley was predeceased by parents, Roy and Ivy McTaggart, in-laws, Gordon and Annie Bell, one sister-in-law, Evelyn and husband, Ed Shaw, and brother- in-law, Lloyd Anderson. Shirley was devoted to her family and passionate about their wellbeing; she was modest, humble and caring. Rural farm life meant hard work and countless happy memories – raising children, cooking and baking, gardening, milking cows, hauling grain, driving a school van for many years, and building community. She always welcomed company into their home, first on the farm and then in Brandon, including her wee home at Fairview where friends and family dropped by her room frequently for much cherished visits. Shirley derived untold pleasure from the simple joy of knitting, so much so, that she grew her passion into a successful business upon “retirement” to Brandon. Quilting, sewing, embroidery and knitting were all done to perfection and shared with everyone who knew her. She lived her life one day at a time, steadfast and true. A tribute to honor Shirley’s life was held at Brockie Donovan Funeral Home on Friday, December 11, 2015. Following the funeral, Shirley and Mervyn were laid to rest together at Greenwood Cemetery, both of them returning “Home to Harding” as one. Pallbearers were grandsons, Derek Miller, Regan Miller, Gordon Collens, Jordan Lepine, and great grandsons, Rylan Kyle and Taber Collens - Honorary pallbearer was grandson, Brian James Shaw. The family wishes to extend their thanks and appreciation to all staff, 4th floor, Fairview Home, to Jeremy Lancaster, Funeral Director at Brockie Donovan and also to the ladies at Central United Church who provided a lovely lunch after the service. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Pastor Paul Stade for conducting the service and for his heartfelt support and guidance throughout. If desired, donations would be gratefully received at the Canadian Diabetes Association or the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.
