CRISANTI: Vincent (Vince). With loved ones by his side, Vince passed away on Friday, May 22nd, 2015 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre, at the age of 54 years. Vince was born February 5th, 1961 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the only child of Giuseppe, (Joe), and Agostina Crisanti. He was raised in St. Boniface where he attended Holy Cross Elementary School and then graduated from Nelson McIntyre Collegiate in 1979. It was during his early retail career at Canadian Tire that he bravely asked for a first date with cashier, Marci Dillabough. They were married on July 9th of 1983 in Winnipeg and it was in August of that year that Vince accepted a job transfer to St. John’s, Newfoundland with father-in-law, Merv. During the next five years, life on “the Rock” brought great happiness, not only career wise but also in making lasting friendships. In 1985, the highlight was the arrival of son, Greg, who remained his pride and joy for the next twenty-nine years. Never could Vince have imagined that returning to Manitoba in 1988 and living in Brandon would be so rewarding and life changing. 1992 brought the exciting news of the arrival of daughter, Lindsay. The challenges and struggles she faced after birth only made the love and bond of this family of four grow stronger. After 19 years in retail with Canadian Tire, the dream of having his own business became a reality, when in 1999 Vince became a MTS dealer and opened Cellular Communication Plus Ltd. The opportunity of being self employed rewarded him with devoted employees, dedicated customers and the privilege of representing MTS, whom he deeply respected. In 2014, due to illness, the difficult decision was made to sell his much loved business. Vince measured his success by the wealth of love and respect he received from family and lifelong friends. Many of his friends became the chosen brothers and sisters he never had. Vince was amazed how his family, his chosen family and many devoted friends stuck by his side and supported him, especially during the past four and a half years. Vince had a heart full of treasured memories and truly was a happy individual. No man had a kinder heart. This was proven during the final year of his life, as while still struggling with cancer, Vince insisted on giving back to others by volunteering his time to the Helping Hands Soup Kitchen. His goal was to make a difference in the life of every person he met. During the last year of Vince’s life, great focus was made on completing his “bucket list.” This included spending as much time as possible at the cottage, cruising on Clear Lake in his much-loved pontoon boat named “Making Memories,” and fishing, golfing and partying with the gang. His travels included fulfilling a desired return trip to be with his Sicilian family, a vacation of the Crisantis, Dillaboughs and Pardys to Turks and Caicos, and most recently to a favorite holiday location on Marco Island, Florida. The greatest highlight and proudest moment for Vince was to share with his family the magical day when son Greg married Carrie on November 29th, 2014. Most recently he was able to enjoy, along with his daughter Lindsay, his beloved Brandon Wheat Kings success in making it to the WHL final. He also was thrilled when his favorite NHL team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, hired a new coach in a historic signing deal. He was extremely proud to know his best friends, Coach Brian and Lois Fowler, along with her team won the Senior Women’s World Curling Championship. Left to mourn with immeasurable sadness is his wife of almost 32 years, Marci; his cherished children Greg (Carrie) and Lindsay; his mother Agostina Crisanti; Mom #2 (mother-in-law) Gloria Dillabough; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Rhonda and Craig Pardy and their children Brad and Taylor; his brother -in-law and sister-in-law Allan and Darlene Dillabough and their children Jordyn, Robyn and Jayden; his many aunts, uncles and family in Sicily, Italy and numerous treasured friends. He was predeceased by his father-in-law Merv Dillabough (January 2011) and his father Giuseppe (Joe) Crisanti (October 2011). The funeral service to honour Vince’s life was held at Central United Church, Brandon, on Wednesday, May 27th, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Ken DeLisle officiating. Interment followed at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. Flowers are gratefully declined. In keeping with Vince’s wish to help others, donations in his honour may be made to the Helping Hands Soup Kitchen, 111-7th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 3S5.

She left her career in psychiatric nursing to raise her four daughters. Frances was an exceptional cook, and passed on her love of cooking and entertaining to her daughters. Time with family and friends was important. Holidays were always a special time that were full of traditions from generations past. She enjoyed company for a quick visit or an evening of cards with family and friends. Mom was loved by all for her caring nature. She was always there to lend an ear or shoulder whenever someone was in need. Mom collected quotes and sayings that were posted on her fridge to share, which offered a laugh or inspirational message. Frances will be missed dearly by those whose lives she touched. Frances is survived by her daughters Charlene Mutchler (Ken), Leanna Fardoe (Kelly), Tess Lelond (Darren), Corinne Kirkwood (Neil) and grandchildren Caelin and Josh Mutchler, Tanner Fardoe, and Mitchell Lelond, brother Ken Bellas (Lois), as well as many nieces and nephews.

Michael Tkachuk as Celebrant, assisted by Cantor Tony Yuriy. Donations in Memory of Frances may be made to charity of choice.
And the children said, "You will always walk with us mother even when you have gone through the gate." And they stood and watched her as she went on alone and the gates closed after her. And they said, “We cannot see her, but she is with us still." A mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence.

WEBSDALE: Marlene Websdale, beloved sister, aunt, storyteller, joker and family historian. Born in Smeaton, SK, April 16, 1936, Marlene moved to Flin Flon, MB in 1944 with her parents Jack and Nellie and brothers Jim, Keith and Ron. Her younger sister Margaret was born there. After high school, Marlene attended Normal School, which became the Manitoba Teachers College before she graduated. Her teaching career took her to Fort Churchill, Cranberry Portage and finally Shilo, MB, where she taught Grade 2 for many years on the military base. Marlene loved teaching and above all she loved children. She supported many foster children around the world and was always happy to spend time with her 15 nieces and nephews, 16 great nieces and nephews and two great, great nieces. She never turned down a request to help with babysitting or even extended periods of child care if a need arose. A few years after the death of her mother, Marlene sold the home they had shared in Brandon and moved to Winnipeg, where she lived for more than 20 years just down the street from her sister. She was a big part of the early life of Margaret’s children Liz and Nick and, living so close, enjoyed being part of an extended family that included Margaret’s mother-in-law Connie Edmonds, who lived next door to Marlene in side-by-side townhouses at Crescent Gardens. She was a student of the Bible and active member of the congregation at St. Andrews United Church, where she made many friends and found another home in Winnipeg. Her volunteer work included delivering Meals on Wheels, helping out at Grosvenor School and working with the Brownie Pack at St. Andrews. Despite eyesight problems that grew worse with age, she enjoyed reading, travel, her collections of spoons and elephants, and was rarely seen without a bag of knitting by her side. There are few family couches across Canada without one of her Afghans to snuggle under. “Aunty,” as she was called by her family, couldn’t give a birthday card without including a poem written specially for the occasion. She lost her battle with cancer May 15 at St. Boniface Hospital. She will be remembered by family and friends at a service starting at 1 p.m., May 30, at St. Andrews on the corner of Oak Street and Kingsway Avenue in River Heights.
