BATTERSBY: Bernice “Bunny.” After a short but hard fought battle against cancer, Bunny passed away peacefully in her sleep in the early morning hours of August 22, 2012. Bunny was born on December 18, 1942 to parents Melvin and Eva McLaughlin of Crawford Park, MB. Bunny was the seventh child of nine children who grew up in a tiny house on the south edge of Riding Mountain National Park. Family was always important and coming from such a large family made for many fond memories of crowded houses at Christmas, early morning breakfasts on the north shore of Clear Lake and bonfires at Ditch Lake. During her fight against cancer, it was family by her side that made the difference in her days and nights. Not wanting her to be alone, her family sat vigil with her through long days and nights spent in uncomfortable chairs, and she was not alone in her final hours. Bunny spent many years hairdressing, working in several shops, in her basement at Chater, teaching at Classic Hair Styling Academy and finally starting her own shop from scratch, Erickson Haircare Centre, until her retirement from hairdressing. Never one to sit idle, she soon took up working during the summers at Sea Gulls and Sand Castles in Clear Lake. After moving back to Brandon, she started to work at Mark’s and loved seeing her friends drop by, sometimes just for a visit. When retirement finally set in, Bunny would spend her time going on walks with her friends and her ever-faithful companion, Brandy. She would cheer on her grandchildren at their baseball and softball games, gymnastics and hockey. Coffee visits, sleepovers and daily phone calls from her daughter Pam kept Mom up to date. Coffee and lunches with Brent, although far between, were always spent with lots of laughs. Bunny spent years fighting for all things better for Pam and others with disabilities. She was a long time member of Brandon Community Options and was very proud of the work that was accomplished in the beginning. Bunny was predeceased by her parents, brothers Earl and Marlin and by sisters Fern Kirkby and Vivian Kelly. Bunny is lovingly remembered by daughter Pamela Battersby, son Brent (Cheryl), granddaughter Brynne and grandson Mitchell. Brother Bruce McLaughlin, sisters Eunice Scott, Margaret (Vint) Smith and Debbie (Mervin) Hall. Numerous nieces and nephews and a lifetime of friends. A graveside celebration of Bunny’s life was held on August 28 in the Brandon Cemetery with Rev. Shannon McCarthy officiating.
Holding my hand, many times Mom would say,“Don’t be sad when I’m gone.” I would smile,squeeze her hand back, “I won’t, I won’t.”I am trying, trying so hard but for now,I have to be sad.

GEORGE: It is with great sadness we announce the loss of our best friend and beloved husband, dad and grandpa, William "Bill" Frederick George, which occurred Saturday, September 1st, 2012 at Brandon Regional Health Centre. Bill was born in Deloraine, MB, the only child of Art and Kathleen George. Bill's father was a dairy farmer and his mother a registered nurse. When Bill was five years old he moved with his family Art, Kathleen and grandparents Fred and Sarah, to Oak Lake where they continued to farm. Bill attended Oak Lake schools. Bill's first jobs were with Don Fuller Trucking at Oak Lake and at Bill Baird's Butcher shop in Virden. Later Bill and his Uncle Harold Johnson worked in the oil fields in Estevan. Bill joined the Brandon City Police Department in 1959. Assigned to the "Traffic Division," riding the police motorcycle was part of his job. Later, Bill worked for the Manitoba Government, Motor Vehicle Branch. Bill was always a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He always greeted everyone with a warm friendly smile and during his careers, he treated everyone with respect and in a sincere and genuine manner. Bill will be remembered for being a very social person and for his humor and quick wit. Bill married the love of his life, Norma and recently celebrated their 52nd Wedding Anniversary. Bill and Norma have one son, Perry, who Bill cherished immensely. Many wonderful times were shared at their cottage at Oak Lake Beach. Bill loved to travel and made sure that every year he took his family on a holiday - B.C. being a favorite. They enjoyed RV travelling and later Bill and Norma discovered flying and car rentals worked well. Many different destinations in Canada and the U.S. were explored. Florida was a favorite. The Florida Keys were great even in July. Bill saw life as a wonderful adventure and loved the great outdoors. He loved all sports and pretty much did them all, boating, fishing, snowmobiling, hunting, archery, water skiing with his favorite being motorcycling. Bill and Perry rode many miles together. Bill was a regular participant at local gun and pistol clubs and was a true marksman. He was well read in his hobbies and was well known for his ability to "sight in a gun". The last few years, Bill experienced a number of health issues. Despite all the pain, to Bill everyday was a good day and he lived it with a smile on his face and with a kind and gentle heart. When life's road became more difficult, Bill picked Dinsdale Care Facility to help him along his life's way. Bill appreciated all the love, compassion and wonderful care provided by every staff in every department at Dinsdale, and in turn, all the staff and residents at Dinsdale enjoyed Bill for the person he was. His doctor told him one day that she needed to put him on the payroll because he made everyone's day with his wit, humor and friendliness. He provided wellness and joy to everyone. Predeceased by his parents Art and Kathleen, stepmother Ethel, cousin Jack George and brothers-in-law Olee and Earl Jorgensen. He will be truly missed by his loved ones, wife Norma, son Perry (Judy), granddaughter Kayla, brother-in-law Kris (Gwen) Jorgensen, and sisters-in-law Evelyn Jorgensen and Marie Jorgensen (Elwyn), and his cousins.
