JACKSON: Richard (Dick) Jackson. Dick passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family on Saturday July 7, 2012, at the age of 87 years. He is survived by his children, Lynda (Jean-Paul) Lebel, Leona (Bill) Guy, Roger, Judy Anderson, Vincent, his sisters Dorthea (Al) Dane, Marjorie (Tom) Norman, brothers Bob (Leanne), Tom Evelyn), thirteen grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased: by his parents Bert and Gertrude, his infant daughter Gloria Ellen, his sisters Helen (Allan) Bond, and Marion (Will) Wensley. Dick was born on the family farm near Hartney, MB. They later moved into town, where he attended school. During this time, at the age of ten years, the Silver Cross for Gallantry, was awarded to him, by the 1st Hartney Cub Pack, on Nov. 29, 1934, when he rescued a local boy who had fallen through the ice into the river. Upon leaving school in 1942, he moved to Portage, where he worked for his maternal Grandfather, J. T. Lee, painting, for fifty cents a week, plus room and board. He also worked at Southport for Clayton & Co. driving a truck for construction. Joining the R.C.A.F. in Aug. 1943, at the age of 18, he became an aero-engine mechanic. His training took place in Brandon MB, Moose Jaw SK, London ON, and P.E.I. We are so proud that he served, and so thankful, that the war ended before he was sent to the front. He married Eva Sharp on Oct.9, 1946. They lived with his parents while he worked with his Dad as a bee keeper. Together they had six children. In 1948 he started working for Hay Decorating Co., became a partner in 1971, retiring in 1983. He liked to travel, and once retired, he drove south, and began a twenty- year adventure as a “Winter Texan / Snow Bird” for five months of the year. He settled in Magic Valley Park, where two of his sisters and their husbands also stayed. While he was still in good health: Dick was an active member of the Knights of Columbus council # 4250 since 1960, a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and Army Navy Air Force Club since 1983, a practicing member of St. John’s and Good Shepherd Catholic Church. Our family would like to thank: all his friends and relatives who consistently visited him at the manor for the last eight years, all those caregivers who played along with his shenanigans and teased him back (to his great delight), all the Knights who turned out in numbers for his birthday celebrations, all the Sharps, who entertained at the manor, as it reminded him of your Dad, all the eucharistic ministers who prayed with him, and Father Eric for his blessings. Mass in his memory will be celebrated at The Good Shepherd Catholic Church at 1:30 p. m. Saturday, 28th July 2012, with fellowship in the parish hall to follow. A private family burial is planned for a later time. In lieu of flowers donations can be made directly to the Knights of Columbus, P.O. Box 421, Portage la Prairie, MB, R1N 1B5, or to a charity of your choice, in his name.

HEPPNER: Kathleen (Kay). Peacefully on Thursday, June 14, 2012, Kathleen Delores Heppner passed away at Fairview Home, at the age of 82 years. Kathleen will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Joanne (John Townsend) Heppner of Whistler, BC, Cheryl Heppner of Brandon, MB, and Myrna Heppner of Portage la Prairie, MB. She was predeceased by husband, Art in 2003, and son Duane in 2010. Kathleen was born on November 28, 1929, 2nd child of Andrew G. and Justina Blatz. Her education was in the Hopeland School District. She was a telephone operator in Morden when she met and married Art in June 1953. Together they raised 4 children. The summers of 1968 through 1972 were spent as camp cook at Sherwood Forest Camp near Beausejour. Mom was thrilled to become a nurse at the age of 46. She worked at Morden and District General Hospital. With Dad’s transfer to Brandon in 1982 came a huge move for the family. Mom was a nurse at Fairview Home until her retirement in 1995. As a result of a stroke in 2006, mom moved to Fairview Home where she resided until her passing. Despite physical challenges, she lived life to the fullest! She went on many outings, including visiting Myrna and Duane at MDC in Portage, shopping, out for meals, and attending a Daniel O’Donnell Concert in Winnipeg. Visitors were always welcome, as well as making many phone calls to keep in touch with family and friends. Throughout her life, family and a strong faith in God remained strong. Mom met challenges head-on and had a positive attitude. Through conversation and her lifestyle, mom was an inspiration to many people. From an early age, Mom developed skills as a fantastic cook, seamstress, quilter, and loved learning new crafts. Through these activities Mom met and bonded with people of all ages, whether it was learning or teaching. Fond memories are of mom doing activities with Joanne’s young students in school: candy-moulding; quilting; and grinding wheat to flour and making bread. Mom was part of these organizations: ladies’ groups at Morden MB Church and Richmond Park Church; parent committees for Morden Children’s Choir and Girls’ Choir; C.A.M.R., Morden and Manitoba Branches; Family Support Group at MDC; A.C.L. member in Brandon; and UCT Ladies Auxiliary member in Brandon. A time of visitation was held at Brockie Donovan Funeral Home, Brandon, on Monday, June 18, 2012. The graveside service was held at Rosewood Memorial Gardens, followed by a Celebration of Life at the Brockie Donovan Chapel. Pastor Ben Kramer of Richmond Park Mennonite Brethren Church officiated. Donations in memory of Kathleen may be made to The Gideons International in Canada, P.O. Box 3619, Guelph, Ontario, N1H 7A2 or to a charity of your choice.

Don`t Cry for MeDon’t cry for me, I’m everywhere; I’m in the breeze that blows your hairDon’t cry for me, I’m all around; I’m in the dirt that covers the groundDon’t cry for me, I’m all over the place; I’m in the sun that kisses your faceDon’t cry for me, I’m in the sky that gives you strength, when you cryDon’t cry for me, I’m in the grass that tickles your toes when you passDon’t cry for me, I’m in the flowers that drink the rain in sunny showersDon’t cry for me, I’m in the trees, dancing prettily, in the breezeDon’t cry for me, I’m in the birds that sing a song, but need no wordsDon’t cry for me, I’m in the rock that somehow listens, when you talkDon’t cry for me, I’m in the rain, running with you down the laneDon’t cry for me, I’m in the water that cools you down as the sun gets hotterDon’t cry for me, I’m in the snow, that you make angels in, cheeks aglowDon’t cry for me, I’m in the fire that warms your body, flames going higherDon’t cry for me, I’m in the tune, dancing with you under the moonDon’t cry for me, I’m in your heart, Always, and forever, when we’re apartForever in our hearts,Your girls
