SHEPPARD: Bertha Florence Sheppard passed away on September 20, 2012 after a brief illness. Born in New Harbour, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland on February 21, 1926, Bertha was the youngest of 4 children. As a child she loved books, had a thirst for knowledge, and did extremely well in school. Unfortunately, her father passed away and she was forced to quit school before she had planned, and went to work to help support her family. Newfoundland was part of the British Commonwealth at that time. Bertha was a very proficient knitter, embroiderer and crocheter. She was contracted by Mary Maxim to produce their sample items. At the age of 18, Bertha moved to St. John's and found employment as a housemaid. It was in St. John's that she met her future husband, Calvin Sheppard. They were married in 1945. Calvin was enlisted in the Newfoundland Army Regiment and later into the Canadian Armed Forces. In 1952 he was posted to Winnipeg. He went on ahead, and Bertha followed by boat and a very, long train journey with five children under the age of 7. It was in Winnipeg that the sixth member of the family was born but passed away at the age of 21 months. In 1957 Calvin was posted to CFB Shilo. Having been uprooted from the city of Winnipeg, she felt isolated and homesick upon her arrival by train to Douglas and then Shilo. It took her awhile to adjust and settle into rural prairie life. Bertha worked at the Officers Mess in Shilo and the Brandon Woolen Mills for a number of years. In 1972 she worked at the Brandon General Hospital in the housekeeping department until her retirement in 1988. Bertha enjoyed reading, knitting, gardening and listening to CBC radio. She was able to enjoy and visit with her family who were living all across Canada. Bertha and Calvin also made many trips back to Newfoundland to renew old acquaintances and family ties. After the death of her husband, Bertha moved to Colonial Estates in Brandon, Manitoba. Six years passed when health issues forced her to move to Fairview Personal Care Home until her passing. Bertha is survived by her children: Vivian (Brian) Cyr of Winnipeg, MB; Chesley (Karen) Sheppard of Shilo, MB; Neil (Barbara) Sheppard of Red Deer, AB; Sharon (Pierre) Rioux of Quebec City and Brian Sheppard of Brandon, MB; eleven grandchildren; twenty- three great-grandchildren and four great-great grandchildren. She was predeceased by husband Calvin Sheppard; daughterMargaret Grace; parents William John Clarke and Agnes (Pinsent) Clarke; brother George Clarke; sisters Edna Clarke and Mary-Ellen Higden. Bertha's funeral service was held at Memories Chapel on Tuesday, September 25, 2012. Rev. Barb Jardine officiated. Urn Bearer was Chesley Sheppard. Interment followed in the Veteran's Section of the Brandon Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Bertha may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 3-824 18th Street, Brandon, MB R7A 5B7. Bertha will be greatly missed and will forever remain in our hearts.
Mom, we love you. Rest in peace.

When I'm Gone
When I come to the end of my journeyAnd I travel my last weary mileJust forget if you can, that I ever frownedAnd remember only the smileForget unkind words I have spokenRemember some good I have doneForget that I ever had heartacheAnd remember I've had loads of funForget that I've stumbled and blunderedAnd sometimes fell by the wayRemember I have fought some hard battlesAnd won, ere the close of the dayThen forget to grieve for my goingI would not have you sad for a dayBut in summer just gather some flowersAnd remember the place where I layAnd come in the shade of eveningWhen the sun paints the sky in the westStand for a few moments beside meAnd remember only my best Author Unknown

LEWANDOWSKI: Sister Mona Lewandowski died peacefully at Rideau Park Personal Care Home in Brandon on September 24, 2012. Mona was born February 6, 1936 in Bethany, MB. Predeceased by her parents, John Lewandowski and Josephine Swiscoski (née Kozoroski), her step-father Albert Swiskoski, her brothers Donald Swiskoski, and Henry Swiskoski, Mona is survived by her sisters Beatrice Coulthard, Dorothy Levandoski, Ann (Leroy) Berehulka, Shirley (Bruce) Wareham, her brother Rod (Evelyn) Lewandoski, her sister-in-law Geraldine Swiskoski, numerous nieces and nephews, and her religious family, the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions (RNDM). Mona completed her secondary education at St. Michael's Academy in Brandon, which was operated by the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions. It was at St. Michael’s that Mona had a sense of God calling her to religious life, and she applied to become a Sister. In the autumn of 1961 Mona entered the RNDM novitiate in Regina, SK and after three years, made her first vows. She furthered her education at both the University of Regina and Brandon University, completing Teacher training and a B.A. degree. She taught at St. Augustine's and Sacred Heart schools in Brandon from 1967- 1971. On September 4, 1971, Mona made her perpetual vows as a Sister of Our Lady of the Missions at St. Augustine’s parish in Brandon. She was subsequently missioned to be the Religious Education Coordinator for St. Augustine’s. For the next eight years, she wholeheartedly took on this work, and made numerous friends in the parish. After a Sabbatical year in Rome, she returned to Canada to live in Ste. Rose du Lac, and served as Religious Education Coordinator for the Dauphin Deanery from 1980 -1988. In 1989 she returned to Brandon, and took on leadership and administrative responsibilities for the RNDM community at St. Michael’s Academy, until the Academy closed in September 2005. Throughout her life, Mona was active in various social justice initiatives with Chilean and Nicaraguan refugees, with Development and Peace, and with the Westman Association for Terminal Care in Hospice. An explorer at heart, she lived her life with a pervasive sense of wonder, curiosity and humour. In February of 2010, Mona fell and sustained a hip-fracture from which she never fully recovered, and then moved to Rideau Park Personal Care Home. The Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions and Mona’s family are most grateful to the staff at Rideau Park Personal Care Home for their outstanding competence, care and compassion.
