HAMMOND: On Sunday, November 13th, 2011 at Fairview Home in Brandon, Melvin Lyle Hammond slipped peacefully away in the company of his loving family at the age of 89 years. Mel was born May 28th, 1922 in the community of Westhall, Manitoba, midway between Deloraine and Hartney, in the farmhouse built by his grandfather. He was the eldest child of Harry and Annie (Reid) Hammond, brother of Fern (Merle Maguire), Jack (Eva) and Marie (Jack Huxley). Mel farmed with his father until a new school teacher at Coxworth School caught his eye. He married Edna Jones of Brookdale on November 21, 1951 and the couple farmsteaded a mile south of Mel’s parents. Mel and Edna raised three children: Karen (Bruce Masterman), Keith (Barb) and Gwenda. They closely followed the lives and achievements of their grandchildren: Chelsea and Sarah Masterman; Alex, Sydney and Kelly Hammond; and Matthew and Hannah Gauley. When their daughters moved to High River, Alberta and St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Mel and Edna travelled regularly to visit. Edna’s work with the Manitoba Women’s Institute also took them on trips to Newfoundland, Kansas and Ireland, and their enrolment in Practical Politics took them to Ottawa and Washington (DC). They also enjoyed many trips to Hawaii, Florida, Mexico and Arizona over the years. Like his father, Mel became a regular delegate to the annual Manitoba Pool Elevator meetings in Winnipeg. He and Edna worked hard to improve their farm, building a new home in 1967, planting a “windbreak” of trees and winning a Farm Improvement Award. Farming was a lifelong passion for Mel. He was mechanically inclined and very adept at repairing and modifying machinery. Although Mel and Edna officially retired from farming and moved to Brandon in 1986, Mel continued to join Keith and Barb on the farm for seeding and harvest for many years. As a young man, Mel played hockey and baseball and continued to enjoy curling and golf long into retirement. He loved music, from Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman, to Tommy Hunter and Don Messer, and he and Edna always enjoyed a night of dancing with their friends. When Regent United Church closed, they joined Deloraine United Church where Mel became a steward. After retiring to Brandon, they joined Central United Church. Mel will be remembered as a kind, loving gentle man. Mel was predeceased by his parents and sister, Fern. He leaves to mourn his wife, Edna, their three children and spouses, seven grandchildren, brother Jack, sister Marie and many relatives and friends. Mel and Edna would have celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on November 21, 2011. The family extends heartfelt thanks to the caring staff of Fairview Home for the wonderful care they have provided since Mel and Edna took up residence. A funeral service will be held at Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Laird Russell-Yearwood of Central United Church officiating. Interment will follow at Rosewood Memorial Gardens, highway 1A west of Brandon. In lieu of flowers, if friends wish, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 415-1st Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 2W8.

HOLLYOAKE: Rowland William, 1918 - 2011. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rowland (Roly) William Hollyoake at the Brandon Assiniboine Centre unit on November 11, 2011 at the age of 93. Roly was born March 20, 1918 in Stony Stratford, England.  He emigrated with his family from England to Canada when he was 11 years old.  The family settled in Mannville Alberta on a farm, which was not Roly's cup of tea and as soon as he was able, he joined the Air Force in 1942. After training in Ontario he was posted to Dauphin Paulson Airport as an aircraft mechanic.  He spent his entire air force life at Paulson Airport and freelanced as the base projectionist to entertain the troops with movies. After his honorable discharge from the war (1945), he met his future wife Louise Musgrave in Dauphin. He decided to hitchhike to Hollywood where he would meet Bob Hope & Mary Pickford and stay with Roddy McDowall.  His story of this trip was told over and over again. After returning from Hollywood, Roly & Louise were married on June 25, 1946.  They had five children, 12 grandchildren and three great grandchildren. In 1949, Roly Joined the Dauphin Lions Club.  This was the beginning of a 60 year relationship with Lions and in 1984 he was elected District Governor of 5M12; this was to be his "other" family as we knew it; his Lion's family.  He was a devoted Lions member and served right up until his stroke.  Because of his devotion to Lions, he received many prestigious Lion's awards, was the first Lion elected into the 5M13 Hall of Fame, and helped to organize 17 Lion’s clubs during his term as governor. Before retiring to Souris in 1986, Roly enjoyed many years in the hotel business in Dauphin and Souris, as well as many other business endeavors. In 2007 Roly moved from Souris to Brandon where he resided at Victoria Landing.  He soon became an important part of that family and served as their bartender twice a week - his claim to fame "the oldest bartender in North America", which made the newspapers across the country and aired on CBC news radio. He will be lovingly remembered by his five children, Gary, David (Barb), Doug (Charlene), Janice (Ed Neufeld) and Mark (Marlene), also his 12 grandchildren Greg, Kevin & Corrine, Chris & Jeff (Lori), Megan & Alyssa, Blake, Jill & Katie Neufeld, Shane & Savanna, great grandchildren Brittany & Alex and Tayler, his brother's Reg & Dennis and sister Margaret. Roly was pre-deceased by his wife Louise in 2002. He was loved and respected by all who knew him and will be sorely missed. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at St. Paul’s United Church in Souris, Manitoba on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. followed by fellowship and refreshments in the church auditorium. Kowalchuk’s Funeral Home, Souris is in care of the arrangements. The family would like to express our sincere thanks to the Brandon General Hospital and the Assiniboine Centre for the care dad received. The family wishes to thank all those that who helped in our time of need. A private family service will also be held at Riverside Cemetery in Dauphin at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Roly's memory to the Lions Foundation of Canada Guide Dog program or the Lions Foundation of Manitoba & N. W. Ontario.
Because of you,our own small worldwill never be the same,and all our hearts arefilled with love when people speak your name.But though your facemay not be seenamong us here today,your heart is feltin all the heartsyou changed along the way.

TAYLOR (HOFFMAN): It is with great sadness that the family of Audrey Phyllis Taylor (Hoffman) announces her passing on November 14, 2011 at the Assiniboine Center in Brandon, MB. Predeceased by her parents, Emil and Edna Hoffman, she leaves to mourn her husband (of 52 years) Kelly, daughter Shelley (Ray) Drysdale of Brookdale, MB, son Robin (Ida) of Norway, son Joe (Venesa) of Calgary, AB, son Michael (Wendy) of Oak Lake, MB, and grandchildren Jocelyn, Teryl, Eirik, Tomas, Jillian, William, Alex, Georgia, Sara, and Amie. Also cherishing Audrey's memory are sisters Geri (Max) Colter of Regina, SK, Shirley Hamilton of Winnipeg, MB, Kim (John) Kelly of Winnipeg, MB, and Sandra Tait of Grande Prairie, AB; sister-in-law Corinne (Jack) Manson of Winnipeg, MB, brother-in-law Ted (Sharon) Taylor of Oak Lake, MB, along with many nieces and nephews. Audrey was born in Medicine Hat, AB on April 19, 1941. She began school at the age of six in a one-room school house in Blackfoot, AB. Her family moved and relocated many times within Alberta and Saskatchewan during her childhood years. Their final move found them in Virden, MB, where she completed high school in 1958, and obtained employment at Martin's Pharmacy. This would be where she met her lifetime partner, Kelly. Their relation grew as they enjoyed school dances, social functions, and most of all, sharing their passion for playing baseball and curling. On October 20, 1959, Audrey and Kelly were married in Virden, MB. They moved to the Taylor family farm in the beautiful Assiniboine Valley, where they raised their four children. Audrey was a wonderful cook and homemaker, and took great pride in her loving family. Audrey was an active member of the Oak Lake United Church, where she sang in the choir and helped with the United Church Women's group. Being very community minded, she volunteered her time on many boards, including Oak Lake Town Council, Economic Development Board, and the Oak Lake and Area Foundation Board. Time was also spent as a 4-H leader, garden club, figure skating club, and many years as typist and assembling of the Oak Lake Town and Country Newspaper. Her love of sports allowed her to cheer loudly in rinks and ball diamonds all across Manitoba. One of her most impressive talents was her artistic ability, both with crafts and painting. A highlight for her was owning her "Where It's At" craft shop in Oak Lake from 1996 to 2010. She felt joy from being able to teach both young and old, the finer points of painting ceramics. Her greatest achievement was being a magnificent wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, to all that knew and loved her. The Funeral Service will be held at the Oak Lake Community Hall on Friday, November 18, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. with Reverend Craig Miller and Reverend Harvey Hurren officiating. The family has requested that in lieu of cards and flowers, donations may be made to the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation for cancer services at the Western Manitoba Cancer Centre, 150 McTavish Ave. East, Brandon, MB, R7A 2B3 in memory of Audrey.
