FEHR: Valine Letitia, January 29, 1947 – January 26, 2014. Just days shy of her 67th birthday, Valine Letitia Fehr passed away peacefully with her children by her side. Mom was a happy go lucky woman, and a very hard worker. She was quick to lend a hand to family and friends whenever they needed it, and never asked for anything in return. She loved to spend time outdoors especially in her flower beds and in her garden. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and she liked to brag somewhat about them whenever she could. Mom’s husband and best friend Rick passed away earlier this month, and it was more than she could bare. It seemed as though she didn’t want to be without him and now they are together again. Mom leaves to mourn her children, Donna Bellow (Tim), Kevin Bartram (Donna), grandchildren Megan Bellow (James), Zachary Bartram, and Madison Bartram. She also leaves behind Rick’s family Ken Fehr (Judith), Tom Fehr (Phyllis), and Dan Fehr (Marlo), as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. At mom’s request, there will be no service but rather a celebration with family and friends at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Valine may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 415 - 1st Street, Brandon, Manitoba R7A 2W8 or to the Manitoba Lung Association, 8 – 940 Princess Avenue, Brandon, Manitoba R7A 0P6.

BOLDUC: Blair Louis Bolduc - With great sadness Shaye and Emilee announce the passing of their Dad on October 21, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer. Blair was born September 8, 1964 in Deloraine, MB to Polly and Willis, the youngest of six children. He attended school in Deloraine, even though it was not his forte, his love of music was, and began in those years. He played in several bands and the highlight was when their band, Sentinel, was chosen to play the high school grad. Blair began his working years with his Dad at Bolduc Construction, where eventually he and his brother Barrie took over the company. In 1988, Blair married Tannis Fisher and together they had their two daughters, Shaye and Emilee. The girls were his pride and joy and their well-being was always his main concern. He was so proud of the young women they had grown into. Tannis continued to be a huge part of Blair's life and they remained close, especially in the past few months. Blair met Carolyn Gwyer when she sang back up on his Sauntry CD. They were married in 1997. Their "children" were their miniature Dachshunds, Angel and Boz. Blair loved those dogs and they brought him much peace in his battle. Blair's biggest concern while in the hospital was always who was looking after the dogs. You knew you were important to Blair if he allowed you to look after the dogs. Over the years, Blair developed a love of performing. He played Rooster in Annie, had the lead role in The Music Man, gained more Brothers when he was in Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat, they continued to be his Brothers to the end. He also performed in Art and the Drawer Boy. Blair decided to switch careers and enrolled in a computer course at ACC. After he graduated, he worked at BRHA in IT. He had made several great friendships during his 10 years there. In February 2013, Blair was diagnosed with Lung Cancer. He met this challenge head on with a determined smile and his sense of humor. Blair found the best way to keep everyone up to date with his treatments was to start a twitter account which he named, “Bbs Journey thru C,” and would post faithfully about his “tweetments.” During his illness, Blair was surrounded my so many people encouraging and supporting him. He was so thankful for all the visits, meals, tea dates, Starbucks trips, and Winners purchases. The people surrounding him with love and encouragement was what made the last few months of his battle more enjoyable. He was also so appreciative and humbled by his friends and family for organizing and holding a social in his honor to raise money to cover his medical expenses. It meant so much to him and his family to see all the love people had for Blair. Sadly in the early hours of October 21, Blair passed away with his family with him. A celebration of Blair's life was held October 25, 2013 at Central United Church with Colleen Gareau officiating. Music was provided by the Central United Choir, longtime friends Steve and Coral Meggison, and Prairie Blend Choir conducted by Blair's dear friend, Deanna Ginn. Eulogies were provided by longtime friends Ron Murias and Bob Wells. That evening, we held a celebration of music where friends and family had a chance to share memories, sing a song or just visit with other friends. His longtime music friends resurrected Sentinel and added new friends from the present. It would have been a celebration Blair would have approved of. Blair is survived by his daughters Shaye and Emilee and fur-children Angel and Boz, their mother Tannis, parents Willis and Polly, siblings Greg, Janice (Gord), Barrie, Joanne (Kevin), Lisa (Tryggve), nephews Cory (Melissa), Matt (Rhonda), Taylor, Soren, great-nephews and nieces Nate and Andrew, Charlee and Logan, Carolyn Gwyer, and several aunts, uncles and cousins. Blair was laid to rest in a private ceremony in Deloraine with his family and close friends. Donations in memory of Blair may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 415-1st Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 2W8 or to the Brandon Humane Society, 2200-17th Street East, Brandon, MB, R7A 7M6.

BJARNASON: It is with great sadness the family of Carl Bjarnason announces his passing in Victoria, British Columbia, on January 30, 2014. A prominent educator and academic in his native Manitoba, his life-long commitment to excellence in education - public education, in particular - won great admiration from friends, family and professional colleagues. Born in Brandon, Manitoba on August 20th, 1915, Carl grew up in a Canadian-Icelandic culture that traditionally put great value on learning. As a youngster he developed a fascination with history that stayed with him throughout his life. He was especially intrigued by the lure of ancient Rome (he taught Latin) and felt the Romans had lessons for us today in culture, politics and the arts. He found something of value and interest in a vast array of themes ... from American history to the Carolingian kings who ruled central Europe in the eighth and ninth centuries. Carl felt one of the giants of history was the greatest of the Carolingians: Charlemagne, who although basically illiterate himself, promoted public education and learning. He was intrigued by mathematics (which he also taught) and was enchanted by its poetic and elegant symmetry. As a young man he devoured the works of mathematicians Bertrand Russell and Alfred North Whitehead. Education, Carl felt, was the key to almost everything. He literally saved nickels and dimes to send himself to university where he earned a BA at Brandon College; and earned degrees at the University of British Columbia; the University of London, London, England; and earning finally a PhD from Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich. His career started as a school teacher in rural Manitoba; interrupted by service in the RCAF during World War 2; then a high school teacher in Brandon, where he soon was promoted to a school principal, then superintendent of all the city’s schools, and in 1966 became dean of Education Administration at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg until his retirement in At teacher training college he became best friends with Ray Spafford and in October 1941 married Ray's pretty young sister, Edna. For the next seventy years, Edna and Carl made a lethal, take-no-prisoners Bridge team, until Edna’s death in 2011. Together, they loved relaxing at the cottage they built at Lake Killarney in Manitoba. They traveled frequently through the US and Europe and Iceland. (Carl worked valiantly to learn Icelandic over the years, with modest success). And both would unwind on occasion with a smooth Scotch, although Edna could opt instead for her favorite rye (on the rocks). Carl had a great love of and pride in his country and felt it was capable of great things. The key to a democracy’s greatness, he argued endlessly, was its commitment to public education. He had no patience with the argument that private schools are better. If they’re better, he said, the moral imperative is not to simply accept it, but rather to make the public system the best. He argued that case all his life. A memorial celebration will be held in Victoria at a date to be announced. Carl was predeceased by his wife, Edna; Icelandic immigrant parents, Gurun and Sigurdur; and by sisters Dora, Helen, Margaret, Runi; and by brothers Herman, Joni, Kay, Marty, and Allan. He is survived by sons and daughters-in-law Dan and Nance of Toronto; David and Linda of Brandon, Manitoba, and grandson Jeff, of Brandon.

Gail McIvor of Winnipeg, Joy’s niece, and her adult children Shelley and Bruce and their families are also left to mourn. Joy lived a very full life. She was born in Winnipeg August 26, 1928, the fourth and youngest offspring of Daniel and Elizabeth. Joy attended grade school and high school in Winnipeg. She continued to live there after school, where she met and married her husband Mert. They subsequently moved to Regina, where their son Mark was born, and finally Brandon, where Joy and Mert resided from 1958 until Mert's passing in 2010. Joy really enjoyed working in the jewelry business at Reesors alongside her husband Mert. She was an active member of the Brandon community for decades, happily involving herself in many community events. Joy was also very proud of her involvement with a small group of Brandon friends in the establishment of Brandosa Beach in Minnedosa. Joy has resided the past three years, until her passing, in St. Albert, Alberta to be close to her son Mark and his family. Joy will be remembered as a happy, fun loving woman who enjoyed life and was very proud of her family.

LAWSON: Douglas Cunningham. It is with deep sadness we announce that Doug passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Thursday January 30, 2014 at the age of 97 years.

Doug was born November 22, 1916 in Hayfield Manitoba. In 1934, Doug and his father Frank joined forces and started Frank Lawson and Sons on Pacific Ave. Doug’s brothers Cecil and Glenn also joined the company and growth was such that a relocation was necessary and in the early ‘40s established their headquarters on the corner of Ninth and McTavish. Frank Lawson and Sons was the Oliver implements dealer and also added a number of short lines manufactured by local and regional firms. During the advent of rural electrification they were the outlet for Windcharger, a system which used a windmill to generate electricity and Doug wired over 100 farm homes in the Brandon district. Doug has been involved with several different business ventures since his start in 1934 and after 42 successful years retired from the farm implement business. After his retirement in 1976 he maintained an interest in Westman Tire until 1995. Doug was elected to the board of the Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba which began a relationship lasting over 40 years, including incumbency in virtually every aspect of the administrative work, from the various committees to the presidency. Doug became involved and a strong supporter in the campaign to replace the Wheat City Arena with the Keystone Centre and served as chairman of the Keystone Building Committee. After the Keystone Centre was completed, Doug served as the first president of the Board of Directors (1971/72). His work on the Board continued for more than 20 years. Throughout his 61 years as an active Brandon investor and employer Doug was always innovative in his approach and excited about the growth, development and future of Brandon. Doug was full of life with a contagious smile and he will be greatly missed by family, friends and those that knew him. Our family wishes to extend thanks to the caring staff at the Brandon Regional Health Center for their kindness and support. In compliance with Doug’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral service, a private family gathering will be held at the Brandon Cemetery Columbarium.
