SHARRATT: Mrs. Joyce “Joy” Sharratt of Oxbow, SK. passed away surrounded by her adoring family at the Galloway Health Centre, Oxbow on Friday, April 27, 2012 at the age of 83. Joy Woolfitt was born at Virden, MB. in 1928 to Jack and Mary Ann, she grew up on the farm south of Reston, MB. Joy was schooled at the small country school across from the farm. She later boarded in Virden, and attended school there. Her teacher kindly recommended her for a job at the bank in Kenton, MB. It was there that she met a tall handsome man named Everett Wallace. Joy and Everett were married in Brandon in 1948, and then made their home in Kenton. Deanna and Donald were born in Hamiota and the family appeared to be complete. The couple raised mink which was not as lucrative as expected, so they moved to Yorkton and operated a paint and decorating store. Lauree made a surprise appearance and it was about a year later the family moved to Oxbow in 1964. Sadly Joy lost her husband Everett in 1965. Joy was employed in the Tripp Building on Main St. at the Royal Bank, and later moved to its new location, kitty corner to the Tripp Building. For twenty -three years she enjoyed working with the people of the community and her interesting and fun co-workers. She did books for the United Church, Oxbow Tire Centre, and Donor’s Choice for many years, as well as helped with the U.C.W. as work would allow. Joy was a very generous person with her resources, time, wisdom, humor, and her love. In 1974 Trev Sharratt married Joy and the families combined with three daughters, two sons, fifteen grandchildren and six great- grandchildren. Joy and Trev lived a happy and content life together. Trev left us in 2010 and Joy continued to live her life well with his memory never far from her mind. Joy lived life, and lived up to her name as all who loved her can attest. She will be missed but remembered with tender hearts and smiling faces. Joy was predeceased by her parents Mary Anne and Jack Baldwin; her first husband Everett Wallace, her second husband Trev Sharratt; in-laws Arthur and Georgina Wallace; all of her siblings and spouses: Ben (Nan) Woolfitt, Charles (Gertie) Woolfitt, sister Ellen Clark, Shirley (Cyril) Hunt, Fred Cooley, and Bob Wallace; step-daughters Delphie Bartel and Alana Sharratt.

HOLT: Muriel Irine, 1928-2012. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother and grandmother on Friday, April 20, 2012 at the Valleyview Care Centre at the age of 83 years. Beloved wife of the late Thomas Holt of 66 years. Left to cherish Muriel’s memory are her children Darlene (Doug) and Lynda both of Alberta, Donna (Lawrence) and Ernie (Audrey) both of Brandon, Ruth (Eric) (predeceased) and Trina (Kevin) of Winnipeg. Grandchildren Trevor (Linda) of Alberta, Laurie (predeceased), Keri (David) and Jodi (Jim) both of Alberta, Cindy (Randy) of Saskatchewan, Tracy (Barry) of Manitoba, Tim (Donna), Jack (Shelly) and Trina (Kevin) all of Winnipeg, great grandchildren Nicole, Natasha, Nalissa, Rian, Emma, Alexander, Andrew, Morgan, Bradley (Jazmine), Megan, Selena, Scott (Kimberley), Kyle, Andrea, Brandi, Colin, Brody and great great grandchild Taysen. Muriel was born in Brandon, MB on April 28, 1928 to parents Bill and Grace Randall (deceased). She had two brothers, Fred and Jim (both deceased) and two sisters, Sylvia Glover of Alta. and Gladys Cameron (deceased). Muriel grew up in Brandon and after her schooling she worked at the Prince Edward Hotel until meeting the love of her life, Tom. They were married in 1946 and from then on were devoted and inseparable. Mom had a golden protective heart and an unlimited supply of love for children. While raising her own family she decided to be a foster parent with Children Aide. She did this for 18 years, always saying her only wish was that she could have kept every one of the babies that came into her home. Family meant everything to her and she had a motto, “Life isn’t always easy but we’re all in this together.” Mom had a generous spirit, was a loving wife, and a strong supportive mother that inspired us all. She was often seen putting the needs and comforts of others before her own. Mom took pride in the way she looked, nice clothes and hair done to perfection! She loved to bake and cook for everyone. Mom enjoyed putting puzzles together, reading magazines, playing cards and bingo, but knitting was her specialty! She enjoyed taking the grandchildren to Saturday matinees, summer vacations to Alberta, Nashville and the Minnedosa cabin, going shopping, attending dances or just going out for Sunday drives and ice cream. Upon retirement, Muriel and Tom resided in the Lions Manor where she joined the committee. Here she made many friends and when illness struck any of them, she didn’t hesitate to visit them in the hospital. From there, they moved into Valleyview Care Centre. Even though mom’s health had failed her, she fought hard until the very end. The special life we shared with her, the times she laughed, gave advice or simply listened, will be treasured and live on in our lives and memories forever. The family gratefully acknowledges Dr. Large and sincerely appreciates the respectful and professional care that our mom received from the staff at Valleyview Care Home. Following mom’s wishes, cremation has already taken place and she was buried alongside her loving husband, Tom. A family interment was held at Rosewood Memorial Gardens on Thursday, April 26, 2012.

HEAMAN: William Clifford (Cliff) Lyle. It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Cliff, on April 24, 2012 at the age of 81 years.

Cliff married Bernice Clair Alexander on August 8, 1959 they made their home on the farm he was born on in the Harmsworth District. Cliff and Bernice farmed as partners for many years. Cliff was still very active and interested in the farms right up until his passing, helping his son and grandson. He moved to Oakner in 1994, then to Hamiota where he was very involved in the lives of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Cliff was a member of the Legion and Forester’s Club. He worked very hard all his life but also knew how to have fun. He was an avid fastball player and until he turned 80 could claim he had pitched in every decade of his life, he curled many games in many rinks, played many games of cards at the Legion and with family and friends over the years. Cliff was a hardcore fan of his grandchildren’s sporting events and spent lots of time watching them play sports as well as at Christmas concerts, etc. It wasn’t very often that his grandchildren could look out in a crowd at anything they were doing and not see grandpa’s face. Cliff was truly a devoted family man and a great friend who will be missed by many. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of choice for anyone wishing to do so.
HARROWEN: Nancy Isabel Harrowen began her journey in this world on June 26, 1922 in Souris Manitoba, the daughter of Jerry and Lilly May Suddaby. Her only sister, Helen Mary, died shortly after birth so Nancy grew up in the midst of her five rambunctious brothers Jerry, Reg, Harry, Jack and Gordon. She was always her daddy’s girl and although she lost him at a very young age, her eyes gleamed with delight any time she recounted stories of her father…him teaching she and her brothers to swim in the Souris River or waiting for him, an engineer on the railroad, at the train station in Souris to return from a run with a special treat. She also loved to reminisce about the train trips she and her mother would take to Ontario in the summers to visit relatives….friendships were made during those trips that lasted a lifetime. The one sad story she recounted from her early years was the sorrow of losing her brother Gordon in combat during WWII. In his remembrance a picture of him, in his uniform, remained on her dresser from the day he died until the day she died. Anyone that knew Nancy would tell you that she was an extremely talented pianist. She had a beautiful voice and the Harrowen household was always filled with music…her piano took a prominent position in the living room. She also loved to dance and it was at a dance in Souris in the early 1940’s where she met her future husband George. Soon after that, at the ripe old age of nineteen, she and George were married and she moved to Brandon where they resided together for the next sixty one years. Their love of dancing continued throughout their entire married life. Nancy spent much of her of her life taking extremely good care of those around her…she was an outstanding cook and baker…no one could make maple fudge, apple crisp, lemon meringue pie or Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding like Nancy. She was also a lovely knitter … when her first grandchild Mellissa was born she had more hand knitted blankets, booties, sweaters and bonnets than she could ever begin to wear. Once all of her children became more self reliant she decided to venture out into the workforce and worked first at Black Bond Books and later as the Activity Director at the International Nursing Home. She really enjoyed this time in her life and continued to work after George retired. At that point they did a real role reversal - she was out in the work world and he was at home doing the cooking and cleaning. Nancy always had a flair for personal style and fashion and she also loved decorating her home…which was always fastidiously neat and tidy!! She loved to have a glass of wine while watching her “plays”. She was also a professional golf and hockey coach (at least in her own mind) always offering arm chair advice and encouragement to Tiger Woods and Wayne Gretzky her two all time favorites!! For more than sixty years Nancy and George spent their summers at their cabin in the Old Campgrounds at Clear Lake. Saturday nights were always spent having a great time with friends until the wee hours and usually ended up with a good old fashioned sing song in the Jamboree Hall at the end of fourth street north!! In addition to their leisure time spent at Clear Lake they also enjoyed travelling to locations such as Florida, Hawaii and Mexico. Nancy was a devoted member of St. Matthews Cathedral for many years and was involved in many volunteer church activities. After retirement she also spent time volunteering at several of the personal care homes in Brandon playing the piano and leading sing songs. About a year after George passed away in 2001, Nancy moved to the Village Green Seniors Residence. Living at Village Green was a great transition place for Nancy and she enjoyed meeting many new acquaintances and friends. She especially liked to attend the monthly dinners that always included wonderful entertainment. Nancy resided happily at Village Green until late in 2010 when health concerns required her to move to Fairview Personal Care Home. We, her family, were very happy to know that during the time of her life when she needed assistance that we could not provide that she resided amongst some very lovely people in a place with some very caring staff. If she had been able to verbalize this, we know that she would have wanted to us thank them for their kindness and compassion. After a life very well lived, Nancy departed this world on Saturday, April 7, 2012 in her 90th year. We will always miss her beyond what words can express but we are comforted by our wonderful memories and our belief that she is in now the hands of God and reunited with those she loved that left this life before her. She is survived by her daughters Marsha Giles, Vicky Deprez (Doug) and Donna Harrowen. Her grandchildren Mellissa Giles Sinclair (Scott); Ryan Deprez (Lisa) and Jenna Deprez (Daryl Steinthorson) and great grandchildren Jaxton and Calla Sinclair. She is also survived by good friend Peter Eves who she could always rely on to do all the jobs that she felt only a man could do properly; sisters-in-law Dorothy Haynes, Hazel Suddaby and Janet Suddaby; and several nephews and nieces. A private family service honouring Nancy’s life was held on Saturday, April 14th at St. Matthews Cathedral and her ashes interned in the Columbarium according to her wishes.
