BRIGGS: On July 8, 2014, Ken lost his final battle with pneumonia after several bouts in the last year. Ken was born in Brandon on February 27, 1940 to Henry and Elizabeth Briggs, although he did not meet his own father until his return from WWII. Ken was raised in Brandon, and married Muriel Bridgeman in 1960. They had 4 children, Michelle (Eric), Gary (Joanne), Karen (Rodney) and Sheri (Kevin). Ken became a psychiatric nurse and began his career at the Brandon Mental Health Centre (BMHC). Ken was a hard worker and attained other jobs in addition to his career to help support the family, including real estate, truck driving and moving, etc., often in addition to night shifts at BMHC. In 1974, Ken and the family moved to Reston, MB to begin a new program with the provincial government and he became a community mental health worker. It was designed to be an early intervention and treatment of mental illness in the community with clients in their own homes and communities before they became serious enough to require hospitalization. Because of his work, Ken's family grew up knowing that nobody is immune to mental health issues and gained a deeper understanding of those who are dealing with them. One of the cornerstones of the work was confidentiality, and Ken was exceptional at doing his work and flying under the radar. In 1982, Ken, Muriel, Karen, and Sheri, moved to Hamiota, MB to continue the work. Ken was active at the Hamiota Health Centre in his work and as a volunteer ambulance attendant, and soon was elected to town council. Ken was a member of the Lions Clubs in Reston and Hamiota. Ken enjoyed fishing, air shows, and military history. He was also interested in religion and psychology, and attained a Bachelor’s degree from Brandon University in 1986 after several years of driving to Brandon to attend night classes. Ken continued to work in Hamiota until 1996, and then retired after 36 years of service. He continued to serve on the village council until 2002, when they moved to Brandon. Ken was pre-deceased by Muriel in 2005. He is survived by Michelle and Eric Thiessen, and their children Angie and Craig West, (Erica and Elizabeth), Jeremy and Angie, (Carolyn and Leighton), and Trevor; Gary and Joanne Briggs, and their children Dean and Joel; Karen and Rodney Walliser and their children Landon, Carson and Rachel; and Sheri Briggs (Kevin Choy), who has doubled as Ken’s very dedicated and loving caregiver day in and day out over the last 9 years. A memorial service will be held at the First Baptist Church, 3881 Park Avenue, on Saturday, July 12, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. with Pastor Paul Stade officiating.

LILLEY: On July 5, 2014 in extra innings, Lorne Lilley was pulled from the game. Lorne was born in 1934, and grew up in his home town of Rapid City. Lorne married Joanne Ironside in 1960, and together had three children, Sharon, Susan and Robert and two grandsons, Dustin and Dallas. Lorne started working for the creamery in Rapid City. He continued his career in Melita, eventually taking a job with Modern Dairies in Brandon, where he continued until they closed. Lorne finished off his working life employed with Heritage Co-op until his retirement. It was during his retirement when he took up lawn bowling. He took great pride in competing at both the local and provincial levels. Lorne’s love of baseball began at an early age in Rapid City and continued on all of his life as a player and coach. In 1958, through hard work and dedication to the game, he was awarded the opportunity to attend Chicago Cubs Ball Camp in Mesa, Arizona. This rewarding experience not only enriched his game, but later on his coaching skills throughout minor, intermediate and senior league ball. He was extremely proud to have been inducted into the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame. Hockey was also a big part of Lorne’s love of sport, again as both a player and coach. Believing that all kids should have the opportunity to play, he was a strong advocate for hockey at the community centre level. Lorne coached for several years at the East End Community Centre, where his son Rob played. He loved watching his kids play sports and later on his grandsons. Lorne also enjoyed broomball, bowling and ice fishing. Throughout his life, family remained most important to him. He will be greatly missed by his wife Joanne, children Sharon, Susan (Wayne) and Robert, grandsons Dustin (Cory) and Dallas (Jessica). He is also survived by cousins Alva, Mulvey and Vernon. Lorne was predeceased by his mother Marie Rolfe, grandfather, stepfather William (Pop) Rolfe and his two aunts and uncles, Agnes and Gordon Kroft, Laura and Manus Ewing and cousin, Vanetta Struthers. The family invites you to join them at the East End Community Centre to share a memory and a Coke, on Friday, July 11, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. A private interment will take place at a later date.
