Beloved husband of Diane and devoted father of Jodi (Oliver) and Allison (Mark); surrogate son Stephen (Rachel) Clark and special “Grrrandpa” to their children Raeggie and Avi. Son of Wilma Sexton; brothers Allan (Ramonalee) and Richard (Rosalind). Nieces and Nephew: Katrina (Roy) Justus; Jerilyn (Shane) Potts and Jeff (Marcie) Sexton.

Marty was born and raised on a farm in the Regent district and attended school in Deloraine, MB. He graduated from Brandon University with a Bachelor of Science and continued his education at the University of Manitoba obtaining his degree in Pharmacy. Diane and Marty were married in 1988 and resided in Crystal City, Manitoba. They moved to Dauphin in 1989 and entered into a partnership at Stitts Super Thrifty. In 1995, they purchased Interlake Pharmacy and moved to Stonewall. With hard work and entrepreneurial drive Marty became a prominent business man and was eager to contribute to his community. The volunteer hours he and Diane put in are countless. Their contributions helped the success of numerous organizations such as Ducks Unlimited, Delta Waterfowl, Veteran’s Memorial Sports Complex, and numerous sports programs. Marty always had a smile on his face and nothing made him happier than being involved with Jodi and Allison’s academic and extracurricular activities. He touched the hearts of so many female athletes and jumped at the chance to hear about and celebrate their accomplishments. Being raised in rural Manitoba fueled Marty’s passion for the outdoors. Waterfowl, upland birds, and big game hunting were many of his favorite past times. Anything that would bite a hook, he would happily reel in! Through hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities, Marty formed many close friendships. As Marty made friends wherever his adventures took him, he will be sadly missed by many people. A memorial service will be held on Monday, February 23rd, 2015 beginning at 2:00 pm at MacKenzie Funeral Home in Stonewall.

ROY: Marie Roy passed away peacefully at her residence, Fairview Home on Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at the age of 93 years. She was the second of nine children born to Leontine and Benoit Fouillard of St. Lazare, Manitoba and lived there until her marriage to Edgar Roy in 1946. After residing in Saskatchewan for the first 11 years of marriage, Marie and Edgar moved their young and growing family to Brandon and there put down permanent roots. Throughout her life Marie was blessed with wonderful neighbours and friends and in her senior years moved into Lions Manor where she especially enjoyed the many social activities. She always kept an open door for the many extended family members that she was happy to receive into her home. Several of Marie’s nieces and nephews would become part of her home, most attending school, and she developed a special bond with each of them. Marie was an excellent cook and was well known to present a wonderful meal at a moment’s notice. A naturally talented seamstress, she took great joy and pride in work. She encouraged others by patiently sharing her expertise and enjoyed all opportunities to learn new crafting skills. These were many. Marie became an active participant in Heart Rehab program at the YMCA and much like her full commitment to all she did, healthy living became her focus. Her strong commitment to family and faith gave her strength to persevere through life’s challenges right to the very end. Marie’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her life’s treasures and she took great interest in all that they did. Marie was predeceased by her husband Edgar; beloved son Damien; son-in-law Ross; sisters Sr. Rosalie and Corinne; brothers Denis and Paul-Emile and numerous in-laws. Left to cherish her memory are daughters Rose-Anne (Joe), Jacquie and Juliette (Ron); grandchildren Matthew (Loni), Stephen (Jen), Patrick and Melanie Thompson, Garrett (Jessi-Beth) and Laura Popplestone; great-grandchildren Emmalie, Aidan and Ava Thompson. She is also survived by siblings: Lazare Fouillard, Sr. Anita Fouillard , Ben (Clara) Fouillard and Jacqueline Lemoine, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. The family will always be grateful for the kind care that Marie received from the supportive staff at Fairview Home. Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church on Saturday, February 7, 2015 with Rev. Fr. Patrick Neufeld as Celebrant. Interment followed at the Brandon Cemetery. If friends so desire donations in memory of Marie may be made to a charity of choice.

PRESTON: Margaret Ann Preston (née McKay), born to Gordon and Florence McKay of Killarney, Manitoba on April 22, 1937, passed away suddenly at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Sunday, February 15, 2015 with Scott and Patti at her side. In 1955, she married the love of her life, Lorne Preston, and in 1960 they moved to Brandon where they began their family. Marg’s greatest joy in life was her family. Together, Marg and Lorne took great pride in keeping an immaculate house and yard. They had many good friends and were very socially active. They especially enjoyed going to dances and were a very graceful couple to watch on the dance floor. They travelled throughout Canada, USA, Hawaii and Mexico. There was no other mother, more proud of her children and grandchildren. She was supportive in all that they did, whether it be hockey, baseball or shopping trips to Fargo. She always worked hard and made holidays and Christmas extra special. Marg worked part-time for 16 years at the Brandon University, retiring in September 1994. After 45 years of marriage, Lorne passed away in March 2001. Marg remained independent and with help from Patti and Scott, was able to remain in the family home until her passing. Marg enjoyed baking and gardening and was so excited to go on her annual spring road trips travelling throughout Canada and the U.S. She loved to entertain and she always had the coffee on and baking to share. Left to mourn her passing are daughter Patti and son-in-law Doug Samborski, grandsons Brayden and Mitchell, all of Winnipeg; son Scott of Brandon; her 3 four-legged friends Ogilthorpe, Zoey and Zeus; and sister-in-law Linda Maloney of Killarney. Also surviving are two sisters-in-law Eleanor (Harvey) Bergen of Altona and Gail Merkley of Calgary, two brothers-in-law Russ (Aline) Preston of Lac du Bonnet and Doug (Brenda) Preston of Killarney, plus many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Marg was a doting wife, mother, grandmother and was a good friend to all. Rest in Peace. Cremation has taken place and an interment will take place at a later date. Special thank you to the Brandon Emergency Services and the Brandon E.R. staff. Also thank you to Ben, Shirley, Amanda and Melissa for helping Marg on Sunday afternoon. Flowers are gratefully declined, but for those who wish a donation in memory of Marg may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, #3-824-18th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 5B7 or the Brandon Humane Society, 2200-17th Street East, Brandon, MB, R7A 7M6.
