HOWEY: Constance May (Davidson), widow of the late Richard Howey, passed away at the age of 86 years in Brandon on January 29, 2012. Connie was born to Marjorie and Dave Davidson on the farm in the Lake Max district, sister to Peter and Garry. She took her schooling at Lake Max and Boissevain Collegiate where she received the B.J. Hales Scholarship to Normal School in Winnipeg and taught for 33 years in several Manitoba schools including Killarney, Morden, Lyleton and lastly in Brandon plus four years with Indian Affairs. She acquired her degrees from U. of M. and B.U. and was honored to be selected by the Canadian Teachers’ Federation to teach in Ethiopia and later to be a recipient of Honorary Life Memberships from the Brandon School Division, Delta Kappa Gamma and the Assiniboine Historical Society. She took an active part in church activities, choirs and Sunday Schools, W.I’s and 4H’s in the districts in which she taught. Teaching was her love and continued contacts with former students were so important to her as were the charitable organizations, which benefited from her generosity. Friends from the Boissevain area held special places in her life as did the farm. Connie married Richard Howey in 1974 and together they farmed in the Harding district till 1989 when ill health forced them to retire to Brandon. They enjoyed much travel and several tours in those years and spent their summers at Lake Manitoba Narrows. Connie researched and wrote the Centennial history for Lyleton and with Richard’s help the “Home to Harding” in 1981. Other publications illustrated her interest in history and her keen sense of humour. Richard, the love of her life and best friend, passed away suddenly in 2004 after years of loving support as Connie battled several sessions of cancer. Fortunately, many good friends were there to give her support in the last years. Connie was predeceased by her husband, Richard, her parents, her brothers Peter (Helena) and Garry (Mary), and nephew Pat Davidson. She will be missed by nephews David (Erica), Jim (Eleanor) and nieces Sandra (Frank) Burton, Valerie Andrey and their families. In keeping with Connie and Richard’s wishes, following cremation, the ashes of both will be interred together in the Howey plot at the Brandon Cemetery with a private family ceremony.

FOUILLARD: Henriette Suzanne Fouillard passed away very peacefully on January 31st with family around her at the Russell and District Personal Care Home. She was born April 11, 1937, the daughter of John and Gertrude Lefranc. She had 3 brothers and one younger sister. Ernest, Rene and Marcel Lefranc live in BC and her sister Rosaline lived in the community and passed away recently. Henriette attended school in St. Lazare at the convent where she gained the necessary skills to prepare her for a very fulfilling life. She married Paul Eugene Fouillard on January 5th 1953 and together they had 9 children; 6 boys and 3 girls. The family expanded over the years to include 23 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and a number of nieces, nephews too many to list. I’m sure we can all appreciate that mom seldom had a quiet day. This especially came to be when Dad, her husband Paul, passed away suddenly on February 12, 1990. This was a defining moment for mom as she suddenly, at the young age 52, had the weight of the family and the family business resting on her shoulders. As always was the case with mom, she stepped in with strength and determination providing nurturing, guidance and when necessary the odd kick in the backside keeping the family close throughout her life. She never gave up on anyone be it family or extended family and worked tirelessly to that end. Mom’s passions, aside from family which always came first, were gardening, needle point and making jams from wild berries picked by her and family. To define mom with one word it would be determination followed closely by patience. She was elegant, classy and while she never used the word freely she loved her family dearly. Prayers were said Friday evening. The funeral service will be held Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. from the St. Lazare Roman Catholic Church. Interment will follow in the St. Lazare Cemetery. If friends so desire donations may be made to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada. Braendle- Bruce Funeral Service of Russell, Manitoba (204-773-2747) in care of arrangements.
