YONDA: Mildred Elizabeth passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Wednesday, February 18, 2015. Born Mildred Elizabeth Ishenberg on September 9, 1924 to Albert and Julie Ishenberg. She attended school in Langford until grade nine then went to Neepawa for ten, eleven, twelve. After grade twelve she went to Normal school for one year to become a teacher. Mildred's first teaching job was at Hallboro, then Miami, Inkerman, Brookdale, and Oxford House. Leaving Oxford House she did something different and worked at a bank in Winnipeg. It was there she decided to take courses to teach business. Her first business teaching job was at a Winnipeg high school. She worked there until she married Walter Yonda in 1958 and moved to Portage la Prairie. Walter opened Active Refrigeration and Mildred opened her own business called Portage Business College. A daughter and son were soon born. In 1975 the family moved to Brandon where they would be closer to family. Mildred worked at ACC until she officially retired. A cabin was built at Sandy Lake where many enjoyable years were spent. Mildred got the most enjoyment playing cards with the many friends she made at Prairie Oasis, Valleyview, and Seniors for Seniors. She was a pioneer for working moms. Her career was very important to her as was taking care of her family. Her sharp wit, intelligence and humor was admired by all. The last couple of years her health was declining but not her mind. She was always up to date on world issues and sporting events. She will be sadly missed. Mildred is survived by daughter Myrna (Keith) Sowiak; grandchildren Jared and Devon; son Andy (Jennifer) Yonda; grandchildren Riley, Lucas, and Jacob; sisters-in-law Rose (Alec) Packan, Jean Gilbert, Mary Rohlfs, and Joyce Yonda as well as many nieces and nephews.

Steve was born on July 9, 1954 in Pictou, Nova Scotia. His fondest memories were spending time at the family farm in Port Elgin, Ontario. If you couldn’t find him, you could bet Steve was at the Saugeen River fishing. Much of his youth was spent playing music, working on his Roadster and enjoying woodworking. He also loved sports and was an avid Blue Jays and Maple Leaf fan. A defining moment for Steve was when he graduated from the RCMP Academy in Regina in 1974. His first posting was in Minnedosa where he met and later married Francis in 1977. Throughout his career, he was stationed in Boissevain, Amaranth and Arborg. Steve's last posting was at Crime Stoppers in Winnipeg before retiring in 1994, and made his final move to Rivers in 1995. These past few years, Steve was a worthy crib opponent and a constant source of amusement to the wonderful staff at the Rivers Hospital and Personal Care Home. As per Steve’s wishes, cremation has taken place and no funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Steve may be made to the Rivers Personal Care Home or Rivers Palliative Care, Box 428, Rivers, MB, R0K 1X0, Rivers United Church, Box 444, Rivers, MB, R0K 1X0, or to a charity of choice.

GREAVES: Our beloved sister and aunt, Winifred Greaves, passed away Sunday, February 22, 2015 at Dinsdale Personal Care Home in her 109th year. Born at Elva, Manitoba of parents Harry and Lilian Greaves, she is survived by her youngest sister Ruth and by many much loved nieces, nephews and grand-nieces/nephews. For many of the nieces and nephews (and their children), she was not just Aunt, but second mother as well. She was predeceased by her parents; by brothers and sisters Chris, Dorothy, Frances, Dick, Charlie, Herb, Mary and Margaret; by all of her brothers & sisters-in-law; and by several nieces and nephews. In her early years, she attended school to Grade 11 in Elva. During those years, with her oldest sister Chris, she was one of the earliest members of the Boys & Girls Club – forerunner to the present 4-H. During that time she actively participated in early provincial demonstrations competitions. After school and some time helping her parents on the farm, she attended Normal School in Dauphin in preparation for her life’s work. A teacher for 44 years, Winifred loved all of her students and treasured their life accomplishments. She taught at Browns (Melita area), Pinkerton (Treherne area), Treherne, and in Brandon finishing her teaching career at Fleming School. She retired in 1971. In her early retirement years, in addition to the joy which her family brought her, Winifred loved to travel, especially with her sisters. She visited exotic locations from the British Isles to Scandinavia, Europe, Hawaii and New Zealand. At home, she found great pleasure and peace in looking after her garden. She loved playing cards, especially bridge, with her friends. She knit mountains of mitts and acres of afghans. She also made sure that every niece and nephew received a unique hand-knit ‘billy bruin’ – a tradition started by her mother. Winifred was one of the first residents of Hobbs Manor and enjoyed her life and friends there for over 25 years. In her later years, one of her great pleasures was to have friends and family visit. She loved to read, and was as equally pleased to have someone read to her, the latest correspondence from family and treasured friends who included among their number many former students and teacher colleagues. Although she was never one to seek the spotlight, Winifred did enjoy the special attention that came her way surrounding the remarkable milestones of her 100th and later birthdays. She was honoured to be recognized by the Manitoba Retired Teachers Association on her 107th birthday acknowledging her status as the eldest living retired teacher at the time. She kept close to her a particularly treasured certificate of congratulations received from the Queen on her 108th birthday. The family thanks all who have loved and supported ‘Our Aunt Win’ through their visits and their correspondence. Memorial donations may be made to CNIB or to any charitable cause which is significant to you. A memorial service will be held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, on Friday, February 27, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Craig Miller of Knox United Church officiating.
