BROWN: Leannie Brown, 1917 – 2014. On March 7, 2014 at the age of 97, our much loved Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma and Great Great Grandma left this earth to be with her Lord and Savior. Her children were with her all during her weeklong stay at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. She had never been alone during her life and we wanted to be with her to ease her journey into the next world. Mom was born January 20, 1917 in Mountain Lake, Minnesota to Gerhard and Marie Krahn, moving with her parents to Saskatchewan at age one. Three sisters and six brothers soon joined the family. Mom leaves to mourn and will be dearly missed by two brothers Gerry and Pete and their families in California and one very special sister Myrle in Arizona. Mom was predeceased by our dad, Joseph Brown in 1986. He always told mom his life began when he and mom married and they raised their large family. Their daughter Shirley died tragically in 1952, grandsons Brent in 1999, Michael in 2005, and Barry in 2012. Mom will be dearly missed as she was loved and adored by her large family: Marlene (Richard), Ken (Mary), John (Darlene), Betty (Dick), Stephen (Karen), Edna (Herb), Beven (Connie), Beverly (Bill); nineteen grandchildren; twenty-eight great-grandchildren and two great great grandsons. Many nieces and nephews also survive. Mom came to Manitoba to work for a young farmer, meeting and marrying our dad in 1940. They spent the next twenty-seven years farming and raising their family in the Helston District of Manitoba, retiring to Gladstone in 1967. Mom worked at the hospital in Gladstone until moving to Brandon in 1972 where she worked at Twin Pines Motel for a couple of years. Mom was thrilled to be able to travel to Europe for two weeks, do an Alaskan Cruise, and visit California, B.C., Alberta and Ottawa many times. After her travelling days were done she really enjoyed road trips around Manitoba. She and her girls, and usually a friend, would take a yearly trip down memory lane around the old farm and surrounding country. Lunches out were another large pleasure for her. Mom was a long term member of McDiarmid Drive Alliance Church enjoying the fellowship of her church family. She took part in the Bible Study for many years, her last Bible Study being Tuesday, the day of her fall. Mom moved into Lions Manor ten years ago and enjoyed friendships with morning coffee girls, six days of the week as well as the sing-a-longs, special performances by visiting groups and in house entertainment. Thank you to all the “Lions’ Folk” for their kindness and friendship to mom through the years. Thank you to Dr. Deong for her kindness and compassion through the years. Funeral Service was held at McDiarmid Drive Alliance Church on Tuesday, March 11, 2014. Pastor Earl Ricalton officiated. Interment followed at Gladstone Cemetery.

SEDGWICK: Eleanor Margaret Sedgwick, November 26, 1924 – February 23, 2014. With family by her side, Eleanor Margaret Sedgwick’s life journey ended on Sunday, February 23, 2014, at the age of 89 years, Hamiota, MB. She will be sadly missed by her husband of 66 years, Thomas, daughters Sandra Todd (Barry)Winnipeg, Marlene Smith (Allan), Hamiota; grandchildren Stacey Wan (Carl), Ottawa Heather Flett, (Tristan) Winnipeg, Kent Smith, (Yvonne), Winnipeg, and Michael Smith, (Kim) Brandon, along with great- grandchildren Audrey Wan, Adrian & Brady Flett, Kennedy &Mikaela Smith, and her sister Mary Hamilton, Carnduff, SK. She was predeceased by her parents, Gus and Olive Shier and infant grandson Mark Smith. Eleanor was born Nov. 26, 1924, and raised on the family farm at Carnduff, SK. She journeyed to Winnipeg to continue her education at Angus Business College. While in Winnipeg she met her future husband, Tom. They were married in the evening of June 26th, 1947, at Young United Church, Winnipeg. Five years later, Tom and Eleanor left their city jobs to pursue their dream of farming. They returned to the Hamiota area where Tom was raised. While farming, Tom and Eleanor were a true partnership. Tom excelled at crop production while Eleanor managed the farm accounts and household. Their success was built on a foundation of hard work and determination. Once the children were in school, Eleanor worked as a legal secretary in Hamiota. Even so she always found the time to maintain an immaculate home, grow a bountiful garden, and nurture lovely flower gardens. She loved the frequent visits of grandchildren who have fond memories of those visits, including games of checkers and monopoly, rounds of golf and fun days at Hamiota Fair. She also enjoyed entertaining and socializing with friends and neighbours. In her spare time she loved to knit and read. Eleanor was well known for being efficient and for being able to get the job done. She believed that there was a place for everything and everything should be in its place. Eleanor was an avid traveller and together she and Tom visited many parts of Canada as well as many countries in Europe and beyond, including their favourite destination of Australia where they enjoyed extended winter vacations in later years. Eleanor contributed to her community through various roles with the Grace Rebekah Lodge, Red Cross Society, United Church Women’s Group, and for establishing the Hamiota Donor’s Choice - a method of raising funds for charities which is still in use today. For the past four years, due to progression and complications of Parkinson’s disease, Eleanor resided at Birch Residence Personal Care Home where she received care and support from the devoted staff. Eleanor’s life was honoured at a funeral service on Saturday, March 1st, 2014, at Hamiota United Church, followed by internment at Hamiota Cemetery. Grandchildren Stacey Wan and Kent Smith reflected on their Grandmother’s life. Grandaughter Heather Flett did a reading and Grandson Michael Smith carried her urn to its final place of rest in Hamiota Cemetery. Campbell Funeral Home capably and compassionately managed the arrangements. The family extend a special thanks to Dr. Karen Juce and the entire staff of Birch Lodge for their compassionate care. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Birch Lodge Equipment Fund.
