FINLAY: Emily May Chappell Finlay (July 19, 1921- March 2, 2015) of Virden passed away peacefully at Brandon Regional Health Centre at 93 years of age. Emily was born as the youngest of two to William and Sarah Chappell in Hamiota where she grew up alongside her brother George. Emily embraced her mother’s Irish heritage and developed a natural enthusiasm for education through her father’s own career as a university professor in England. These two family legacies meant a great deal to Emily, and she passionately pursued her own education with great sacrifice, including moving away from home at a young age to work for room and board in order to attend school. In 1941, she achieved her Teacher’s Certification at Normal School in Brandon and from there went on to teach at the one-room schoolhouse of Blair District, south of Lenore. There, she met Ross Finlay and they were married July 18, 1942. It was during this time that she put her teaching career on hold to help run the farm and raise a family. In 1953 and 1963, Emily became a mother to Donald and Norman. She was very proud of her sons’ educational and musical endeavors. After 30 years, she returned to teaching with great zest, substitute teaching for another 20 years in Virden and Oak Lake. She was personally invested in all of her students and the young people in the community, attending graduation ceremonies for many years into her retirement. Emily was recognized for her community involvement with St. Paul’s United Church, the Hospital Auxiliary, the Horticultural Society, and many other volunteer groups. She was also well-known for her natural green thumb and her extensive knowledge of flowers and plants. In 1984, 2000, 2005, and 2006 Emily became a grandmother to Jamie, Cailin, Claire, and Patrick. Again, nothing made Emily more proud than tofollow her grandchildren’s educational and extra-curricular endeavors. In 2013 she became a great-grandmother to Kaliyah and had been eagerly awaiting the arrival of two new twin great-grandchildren this May. On March 10, Emily’s life was celebrated in Virden at St. Paul’s United Church and she was laid to rest in Johnston Cemetery. She is now reunited with her parents William and Sarah, brother George, and husband Ross. Those left to cherish her memories include Donald Finlay (Patrick Finlay; Jamie & Joshua, Kaliyah Rist) and Norman & Jodi Finlay (Cailin, Claire Finlay) along with many other friends and family. Emily’s family would like to thank all the doctors and nursing staff at BRHC for their exceptional care, as well as all who showed their support and took part in the celebration of Emily’s life. Thank you to Reverend Janis Campbell and the G. R. Carscadden Funeral Chapel for your help and understandingduring our families' time of sorrow.

HARRIS: It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden and tragic passing of our beloved son, brother, uncle, Bradley Dean Harris. Brad passed away on Monday, March 16th 2015 at the age of 51 years old.He is survived by his mother Georgina Harris, his siblings Jim, Linda, Ann Marie, Brenda (Marcel), Kathleen (Joe), Richard, Gregory, Vincent, nieces and nephews Jesse, Dustin, Corey, Jennifer, Michael, Rikki Lee, Tashina, Cerina, Reed, brother-in-law Billy Joe Green and extended family. He was predeceased by his father Charles "Buster" Harris who passed in March 1977. Brad's outgoing personality and easy going nature made it easy for him to become friends with almost everyone he met. Brad lived and worked in Calgary for many years as a roofer, following in his fathers footsteps. After Brad became ill with diabetes and was unable to roof, he found a new path in life. He had always liked to draw and this passion had become therapeutic for him. It helped him to cope with the debilitating illness that had hit him hard and fast. He lost his leg to diabetes in October 2013. This was very hard for him to deal with but being a person who was always positive, never down and had a good outlook on life he overcame this hardship. Brad was very active and always kept himself busy with his many art projects. He was very artistically talented and gifted, mastering many mediums of art from painting, carving, making star blankets and jewelry. Brad erected a tipi in Grand Valley where he liked to work on his many projects. At the first signs of spring, Brad would spend his days at the tipi where he was most at peace and where his creative ideas would become a reality. Memorial service will be held at Brockie Donovan Funeral Home in Brandon, Manitoba on Monday March 23rd 2015 at 2 o'clock PM. Reception to follow.

CLISBY: Linda Ruth Isabel Clisby (nee Skinner) October 18, 1955 – March 14, 2015. As the sun was rising in the east, Linda’s spirit settled in the west and joined those loved ones who had passed before her. She left this world as she lived it graciously, privately, and courageously. Linda was a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. We are forever grateful for the time we had with her, a special person who embraced everyone she met with kindness, respect, and an openness of heart. She brought joy and laughter to every occasion with a sharp wit and an outlook on life that made you want to be near her. Those of us who loved and cherished Linda grieve her loss and celebrate the gift of her life to us. Linda is loved profoundly and mourned deeply by her husband Don and their son Frank and daughter-in-law Dee. As well, Linda is mourned by the Skinner family, her Mother Margaret, and her brothers Frank (Lorraine), Don, and numerous nieces and nephews. Linda was predeceased by her brother Michael (1969) and father Wendell (2001). Linda and Don were married in 1974 and they spent 40 years together sharing good times and bad, but always being best friends and strong supports to each other. Don’s devotion to Linda has never been as evident as these past few months as he walked along beside her in this difficult journey. Linda’s bravery and stoicism through this journey are admired by her many friends and it is evident that she gained this strength of character from her Mom who was with her every step of the way. Linda had a few passions for family, friends, golf, cooking, and a love of animals. First and foremost to Linda was family. In loving her family deeply, Linda’s major priority was to create a safe, secure and nurturing environment. One of her greatest joys was in bringing the family together and serving her famous roast beef dinners with Yorkshire pudding. It was during these times when she felt the most content, surrounded by the people she loved with all her heart. For Linda, the table was the gathering place, the source of nourishment, festivity, safety and satisfaction. It was where she could combine her love for family and cooking into one happy event. Linda’s passion for animals was developed in her early years of growing up on the farm in Alexander. She loved dogs and owned many throughout her lifetime including Jude, Suzie, and now Jessie. As well she was overjoyed when Frank and Dee introduced her to her “grand-dogs” Nashville and Benny, and she realized they are carrying on the same passion for animals as she. In Linda’s younger years she and Don liked to ski in the mountains and spend time at the cabin at Pelican Lake. She would entertain us with the many stories of her and Rosanna’s antics. Laughter and Linda were synonymous. Her home was the gathering place in the neighborhood and adults and children would travel across the city on Halloween to collect one of her famous “popcorn” balls. Long after the children were too old to go out for Halloween, these now adult children and their parents still showed up on Halloween to get her special treat! Linda always looked forward to these visits and opened her home to everyone. Golf and friendships went hand in hand. Linda developed many life-long friends when she was part of the ladies “Happy Corkers” golf league. These friends and the others that she developed along the way always felt special in her presence. While she took her golf seriously, Linda was always willing, when asked, to provide helpful advice to her partner to help them improve. She took great pride in the fact that son Frank had coached her in golf. Linda was a sought after golf partner and a great golf buddy. Linda’s favorite saying was “it will be a life changing experience.” Go softly dear Linda and know that you have made our time here “life changing.” We loved you. “May our hearts be filled with Linda’s laughter and warm smile and bring tears of happiness in having known her.” In accordance with Linda’s wishes, there will be no service, however, her ashes will be spread in her favorite places in the fall. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Brandon Humane Society.

John spent much of his life on the family farm by Dand, ten miles north of Deloraine.  John went to Dand School until it closed in 1970, and then attended school in Deloraine. John enjoyed time on the farm, driving the tractor, and the never-ending fixing of equipment. He loved hunting, fishing and snowmobiling. He worked in Brandon in various trades, including small engine repairs, heavy duty mechanics, millwork and cabinetry.

Brandon Regional Health Center became his home for the past 2 ? years. His life was touched by many doctors, nurses, and support staff while a patient there. John never regained his mobility, but his tenacity and courage never wavered.  Through it all, he maintained his sense of humour, always ready to tease, always laughing and always ready to share a joke. He is predeceased by his parents, Bill and Joyce, his brother, Jim, nephew Eric, and step-mother, Vivian.

PHILLIPS: It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of John Thomas Phillips know to many as “Jack”. John was born September 5, 1934 at the family farm in the R.M. of Cameron, Manitoba and he was the youngest of seven children born to George Trineer and Lela Maude (Graham) Phillips. John passed away on March 9, 2015 at the Hartney Community Health Centre Hartney, Manitoba at the age of 80 years. John leaves to mourn his loving wife of 33 years Patricia “Pat”, son Patrick (Edna) Phillips and their children Madison and Jessica, daughter Alanna Phillips. Also left to grieve are Pat’s children: Brian Herman (his daughter Zoe), Gary Herman, Cheryl Kovac (her son Nick), Jim Herman and Cathy (Leonard) Lipscomb and their children Devon, Linzey and great granddaughter Olivia. John’s sister Norma (Watson) Roper, his brother Clare “Buster” (Donna) Phillips, his special cousin Keith (Joy) Phillips, sister-in-law Teresa Pidskalny as well as many nieces and nephews. John lived life to the fullest. He was a loyal and committed person in everything he did. He spent all of his professional life working for Manitoba Telephone Systems which took him to many places around Manitoba including The Pas where he would meet his wife (and her 5 children) and then off to Thompson where he would end his career. Upon retiring in 1989 he decided the call of the south was too strong and they moved “home” or as close to it as possible as he always called Lauder home. Pat continued to work and John enjoyed puttering around the yard at their first home in Hartney and of course at the “Lot” where eventually their trailer would be. He would spend many hours riding the lawn mower (even in the neighbour’s yard) and trimming trees (there definitely was a lot of those). John loved to tinker and work on projects and his vast collection of tools (sometimes 2 or 3 of the same kind) reflected this. John enjoyed travelling with his wife Pat or Patty as he called her throughout the years. Even in his failing health he was still able to take a trip to Yellowknife in the summer of 2014 to see his second oldest granddaughter graduate from high school. He was so proud of all his children and grandchildren for all their accomplishments. Family was always very important to him. John was predeceased by his son Bryan Phillips, his parents George and Lela Phillips, brother Gordon (Jigs), brother Harold (Howdie) sister-in-law Margaret (Peggy) Phillips, sister Dorothy (Dot) brother-in-law Elmer Hicks, sister Eva Irene Phillips (in childhood), brother-in-law Orest Pidskalny and mother-in-law Mary Polowy. Funeral service was held at the Faith Community Baptist Church, Souris, Manitoba on Monday, March 16, 2015 following the interment in the Lauder Cemetery, Lauder, Manitoba. In memory of John, donation may be made to the Hartney Community Health Centre, the Souris Health Centre c/o Prairie Mountain Health Box 10 Souris, Manitoba R0K 2C0 or to the Faith Community Baptist Church ~ Mission Project.

FEE: Vera Kathleen Fee (Muirhead). In the fading hours of March 15th, our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Vera surrendered her last breath and entered into rest. She will be remembered with love by her children Daryle (Cynthia) McCaw and Doreen (Vernon) Caithness, by grandchildren Christie (Chris), Tamara (Tony),  Dawna (Michael) and Karen (Rob) and by her great-grandchildren Christopher, Sam, Dylan, Abigael, Colin, Braden and Taylor. Vera was born at the farm of her parents Annie and Richard Muirhead in Ingelow and grew up there with her siblings Charlie, Aileen, Gordon and Gerald. She was a striking young woman who caught the attention of Roy McCaw and they were married in 1943. In 1944 they welcomed their first child Shirley, who died within her first year.  They went on to have two more children, Doreen and Daryle. Roy's work took them from Ingelow, to Ontario, and back to Manitoba, first to Miniota and then to Carberry where they opened a furniture store and raised their family. Vera was an industrious woman who spent few idle moments. In addition to working at the Solo store, and later at their furniture store, Vera was an accomplished gardener, seamstress and knitter and entertained her family many evenings with playing the piano or organ. Roy passed in 1973 but remained forever in her heart. A new chapter of Vera's life opened in 1975 when she married Stan Fee and she welcomed Terry (Barb), Carol-Anne (John) and grandchildren Gary, Jared, Jennifer, Michael and Lindsay to the family.  Initially Stan and Vera lived in Winnipeg, but later retired to Carberry. During this time Vera and her family spend many wonderful days at their cottages at Pelican Lake. Vera was the designated "spotter" while Vernon, Karen and Dawna waterskied, with Captain Snoopy at the wheel while evenings were spent around the campfire. She still loved campfires, and had to be pulled away from the last fire of last summer sometime in the early morning hours. Stan passed in 2007, and Vera once again opened a new chapter. In her later years  Vera and her circle of close friends were often found out on the highways of Westman enjoying restaurants or shopping or enjoying each other's company over coffee. Vera spent much of her life in service to others, and will be remembered for her generosity, her sense of humour and unconditional love. She valued her family, her friends and her health and did not believe in complaining about the trials life brought, but in being thankful and using the blessings that you still had. She has left this world to join those that have passed before, her parents, her siblings Charlie, Aileen, and Gordon, her husbands Roy and Stan and her daughter Shirley. A graveside service for Vera was held on March 19th at the Carberry Cemetery.
