JOHN: William Albert. Peacefully on Friday, May 6, 2016, Bill John, of Brandon, passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. He was born September 1, 1948 in Brandon and attended school at McLaren and BCI. At the young age of 12, Bill moved in with the Johnson family. As a youth, Bill loved spending time on the Bread Truck with his dad, and the many trips to the north country (Flin Flon, Thompson). He also enjoyed spending time at the John Kane farm at Chater, and hopping the train to go to Chater to visit his grandparents. Bill met the love of his life, Doreen, in 1966. They were married August 30, 1969, and welcomed their daughter Donna in May of the following year. Bill had various jobs but his career was 32 years with Simplot Canada (Koch), retiring in 1997. Always an early riser, even when he was young, Bill enjoyed his early morning coffee runs to Timmy's on the hill at 4:00 a.m. with Jack and the guys and then headed to Timmy's south. When not socializing with his coffee pals, Bill enjoyed spending time at the cottage at Sandy Lake, with family and many friends. He also enjoyed fishing, 10 pin bowling, and traveling. During his retirement, Bill kept busy helping others, including building a garage for Al, helping the guys at the lake with their docks, building Mom a deck this past summer, helping Ken build his house in the country and helping the neighbours. Remaining to cherish Bill's memory are his wife Doreen; daughter Donna; mother Jean Johnson; sister Barb Lacey, husband Gregg, daughter Ashley; brother Ken Johnson, wife Edna, son Scott (Ashley), daughter Rikki; sister Sandy Brown, husband Bob, son Ali; sister Jacquie (Sheldon) and all of their families.

JACKS: Dorothy Elaine Jacks (Nee Macleay). June 2, 1925- May 12, 2016. In deep sorrow, we announce the loss of Dorothy Jacks, three weeks shy of her 91st birthday, at the Grace Hospital. She was predeceased by her husband of 58 years, Donald; parents Allan and Blanche Macleay; Don’s parents Douglas and Mary Jacks; and her daughter Beverley. She was also predeceased by Don’s brothers Milton and Dr. Quentin and their respective spouses, Lois and Marion, and her nephew Douglas. Dorothy is survived by son Allan (Evelyn) of Winnipeg, their children, Cordell (Tamara) and Donald; daughter Barbara (Greg) Davenport of Okotoks, AB, their children, Talia (Jason Macmurchy), great-grandchildren, Kai and Nash; Taylor (fiancé Neda Jafar); and Austin (Jessica); daughter Lori (Mark) Cullen of Edmonton, AB, their children, Jacqueline and Nicola; Beverley’s daughters: Becky Jacks, great-grandchildren, Gabriel, Makenna and Sloan; and Ashley Jacks, great-granddaughter Vaeda; and Becky and Ashley’s father, Jeff Swan. “Dotty” is also survived by sister-in-law and best friend Yvonne Millar and many nieces and nephews. Mom was born in Yorkton, SK. As an only child, she grew up in a one room apartment with her parents in Brandon, MB. She never had a room of her own, with only a sofa for a bed. In spite of this she often hosted card parties for her girlfriends, with these friendships spanning eight decades. In her early years, Mom attended secretarial school and worked in Brandon. She also enjoyed modelling the latest fashions at shows put on by the Joanne Shop. Mom loved knitting, painting and music, having self-taught on the piano. During the war years she enjoyed attending dances with girlfriends at the Commonwealth Air Training Base at Rivers. Having met Don at age 13, they resumed their courtship upon his return from WW 2 and they continued to love to dance together to big band music. In fact, in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s whenever she and Dad walked into any one of Winnipeg’s many piano bars, the pianists would always immediately recognize her by playing her favorite song: “Misty”! Once married, Dorothy and Don started their adventure together living in many cities across Western Canada and Ontario. She was always the perfect mother, homemaker and entertainer. Her hair was always perfectly styled, her nails beautifully done and she was always impeccably dressed, ever-ready for Don’s last minute announcements that he was bringing home clients, friends or colleagues in the next half hour. Mom and Dad enjoyed travelling around the world and spent many happy winters in Pompano Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, FL. They also enjoyed regularly hosting home-cooked feasts at their home on Yale Avenue as well as entertaining-out at the Winnipeg Winter Club and the Manitoba Club. In later years they lived and made numerous friends at the farm in Okotoks and their home in Erickson. Most of all, she loved summers at “the Cottage” on the North Shore of Clear Lake. It was the happiest meeting place for family, friends and new acquaintances. Each evening she enjoyed the traditional cocktail hour cruise to watch the sunset on the lake, followed by a late night, always-fabulous supper. Mom especially took simple pleasure in sharing a peanut butter and Spanish onion sandwich with a cold beer with Yvonne on a hot summer day. Mom enjoyed active participation in I.O.D.E in Burlington, and volunteered with Misericordia Hospital in Winnipeg. Most of all she really loved volunteering as an antique buyer for the Things Antique and Gifts Shop in support of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. No matter how rough the area might be, she had no fear in venturing out alone, in all seasons, in search of the best deals on the nicest items at auction houses and estate sales throughout the city. Mom adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and loved to snuggle, read stories and chat about their daily lives and adventures. (She was not quite so fond of pets, but cheerfully endured a lifetime of family dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, white rats, baby chicks, and various strays, as well as birds and a plethora of fish.) Mom specifically requested thanks be extended the many medical teams, health care aids, volunteers and cleaning staff that helped along her journey: including St. Boniface Hospital, CancerCare, Grace Hospital, Provincial Home Care, Shaftesbury Park Retirement Residence and many others. Special thanks to her physician, Dr. Rolly Hayward. At Dorothy’s request cremation has taken place. A private family gathering and interment will take place later this summer at Clear Lake. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare, The Canadian Diabetes Association or the Salvation Army, in Memory of Dorothy Jacks. The Coutu family in care of arrangements: E.J. Coutu & Co. Funeral Directors, 680 Archibald Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba. 204-253-5086.

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.
