ATKINSON: Arthur Sheridan (Sherry) Atkinson, with his daughter and grandson at his side supporting him on his final journey passed away peacefully at the Assiniboine Centre on Wednesday, June 29, 2011 (granddaughter Victoria’s 29th Birthday) at the age of 83 years. Sheridan was born on November 14, 1927 in Winnipeg; he was the eldest son of Henry Sheridan and Constance Gladys Atkinson. Sherry is survived by his younger brother, Terrence and sister-in-law Florence. After graduating from high school, Sheridan attended the University of Winnipeg he then began his working career with the CIBC in Elgin, MB. In the 1950s, Sherry moved to Saskatoon with the CIBC, where he attended the United Church and met Della Holmes. Sherry and Della were married in Saskatoon and shortly after moved to Richmond, BC, where Sherry took a job with the Canada Revenue Agency. The couple were blessed with two children, Linda in 1962 and Dan in 1964. They resided on Ainsworth Crescent, the neighborhood which held 75 kids, all just a couple of years apart in age. With the great climate of the lower mainland Sheridan grew a variety of fruit trees, and he generously shared the harvest with all his neighbours. He became known in the area for his outstanding rose bushes, which he pampered. People would often come to get his gardening secret, and often took home cut roses. He claimed the secret was in the compost that he maintained all year. He always found the time to be involved in his children’s activities; including Dan’s soccer, being a Cub Leader and also coaching the softball teams that Linda played on. Sheridan was always encouraging, and he never hesitated to help in any way that he could manage for both his kids. This quality never changed with Dan, Linda or anyone else. Sherry and Della took in one of Dan’s friends after moving to Manitoba, and to this day that man remembers fondly the care and welcome that was given to him so freely. Sherry and Della were avid curlers and belonged to the Gulf of Georgia Curling in Richmond for many years. They both sang in the choir at the South Arm United Church and participated in many forms with many of the church organizations. In 1975, Sheridan took a job as area manager for Health and Welfare Canada in Brandon, MB. Sherry and Della joined the Central United Church and again lent their voices to the choir and served in many volunteer areas. One of Sheridan’s passions was stamp collecting and he was a member of the Philatelic Society in Brandon. This interest soon became a family affair. Sheridan was a volunteer with the museum at the Brandon Airport for many years, and helped with the Boundary Commission when it was in its infancy. He was also an active member with the Brandon Rotary Club for many years. Sheridan retired from the government when he was 55 years old and became even busier then before, and was the manager of the newly developed Library Arts Building in Brandon. Sherry and Della were blessed with four grandchildren; Victoria, Blake, Sarah and Sadee. In December of 1993, Sherry sat by Della’s side while she passed away from ALS. Sherry while enjoying one of his favorite activities, swimming, met Margaret Majcher and they were married in 1995. Sheridan welcomed his new family with open arms, Margaret’s son Will Majcher and wife Susan, and daughter Jan and husband Wayne Johnson, as well as gaining an additional four grandchildren; Andrea, Mark, Natalie and Blake. Sheridan and Margaret enjoyed golfing, playing cards in a fun league, and during the summers they loved to tend to their yard and travel in the winter months. In 2007, Sherry was devastated at the passing of his son Dan. Sheridan was a man who always had a kind word, a smile and a laugh that was contagious. He was eager to help his grandchildren with whatever they needed, but was stern and diplomatic when they stepped out of line. He will always be remembered for being honest and compassionate. Prior to his passing he spent much of his time chatting with the budgies on the third floor of the Assiniboine Centre and with the sparrows outside. He certainly had a special way with birds, including the ones in his backyard. A celebration of his life was held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel on Wednesday, July 6, 2011 with Mrs. Bonnie Zimmer of First Presbyterian Church officiating. Interment followed at the Brandon Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Manitoba Lung Association, 8-940 Princess Avenue, Brandon, MB, R7A 0P6 or to the ALS Society of Manitoba, 493 Madison Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3J 1J2.

EDWARDS: The family of Mae M. Edwards (nee Noakes) are saddened to announce the passing of a beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother on July 11, 2011 at the age of 98 years. She was born on November 5, 1912 in Winnipeg to William and Mabel Noakes, moving to Brandon in 1921. As her father was a newspaper editor, she also lived in Ottawa and Regina, prior to the move here. She married Jack Edwards on June 11, 1938 and together they worked hard raising daughter, Marguerite and son Bill. They lived approximately half of their married lives at 20th and Princess Ave. and the remaining time on 23rd Street. Mom was very independent and still lived on her own, right up till her hospitalization nine weeks ago. Mom worked her whole life with the public; first at Woolworth's, then for decades at Eaton's in the "Notions" and sewing department. Many seamstresses or those "in training" got valuable assistance from her over the years. She loved people and was very involved in community most of her life. From the West End Community Centre to Rebekahs, A.C.W. and U.C.T, she volunteered extensively. Mom and Dad were instrumental, along with two other couples, in starting U.C.T's Travo bingo and she rarely missed a night selling tickets well into her 80's. Different venues around Brandon also found her as a bingo player 2-3 times a week. She was quite lucky but mostly enjoyed the socializing. She found another passion in her later life and that was her "slots"; always a winner even if she spent much more than she made! Following Dad's retirement, they discovered Hawaii and made several trips there before health issues became a concern. The true love of her life though was her family and she was a wonderful parent and Mom-in-law to us. When her only grandchildren, Kristal and Todd came into her life, there were few people who didn't see or hear of their many awesome features and feats! That joy just kept increasing as the grandkids married Daryn and Brenda and then added four precious great-grandchildren: Brittany and Brendan Laminman and Dylan and Halle Edwards. Mom was predeceased by her parents, our Dad in 2000, Marguerite in 2005, all of her brothers and sister-in-laws: James Noakes (Mary), William, Edward (Eleanor), Harmon (Betty), Art (Jessie). Also pre-deceasing her were all of Dad's family; Gordon (Mary), Len (Doris), Tom (Thelma, Jean), Daisy (Jack) McLeod and Dolly (Ed) Bond. Numerous nieces and nephews survive, including Don and Louise Edwards, who assisted Mom over the years in many ways. The family would like to thank her dedicated home caregivers as well as special neighbours, Sheila and Dot, who all helped in enabling her to stay in her own home all these years. A celebration of Mae's life will be held at Memories Chapel, 330 - 18th Street North on Friday (today), July 15, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. Arlene Robertson will officiate. A private interment will be held at the Rosewood Memorial Gardens. Flowers are gratefully declined, but if desired, donations to either the Manitoba Lung Association, 8 - 940 Princess Ave. Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 0P6 or charity of choice would be welcomed.

SCOTT: 1961 – 2011. Surrounded by family and love, Callum Scott passed away on Monday, July 11th, 2011. Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife, Lorna; his son, Jamie; his daughter, Vanessa and her husband, Stuart; special grandson, Cade Bonneville. He will also be deeply missed by his parents, Mary and Walter Scott; his brothers, Alan and his wife, Dorothy, and Glenn and his wife, Linda; his Grandmother Jannie Campbell; brothers -in-law and sisters-in-law, Val and Ray Leronowich, Karen and Brent McEachen and Gerald and Erika Bodnaruk. Also surviving are many nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Callum was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Nana and Dide Morrison; and his father-in-law, Oscar Bodnaruk. Callum was born on January 14th, 1961 in Aberdeen, Scotland. He spent his first seven years living in Scotland and England before moving to Canada with his family. Callum attended elementary school in Loughborough, England, New Pitsligo, Scotland, Regina, Saskatchewan, and after moving to Brandon, he attended Fleming Elementary School, Earl Oxford Junior High, Neelin High School and Assiniboine Community College. Callum was an avid athlete and excelled at baseball, hockey, volleyball, basketball, soccer, and golf. He was born a leader and took his responsibility seriously whenever he was named captain of a team, which happened often! In 1979, he married his high school sweetheart, Lorna, and they were overjoyed with the births of Jamie in 1980 and Vanessa in 1982; and words cannot describe his excitement at the birth of his grandson, Cade in 2009. Callum carried his leadership qualities into both work and volunteer life. He started his 28-year career in media advertising in 1981 at the Brandon Sun. In 1986, he moved on to TV sales at CKX-TV for 3 years, returning to the Brandon Sun in the positions of Sales Rep, Commercial Print Manager, Classified Sales Supervisor and Advertising Director. In 2001, Callum moved to the position of Ad Director at the Medicine Hat News, at the Red Deer Advocate (2005-2007), and the Saskatoon Star Phoenix from 2007 until his illness meant he was no longer able to work. Always on the lookout for new ideas, he was known for seeking out newspapers wherever he travelled. Callum enjoyed community sports and community service. He played and was Secretary Treasurer of the Brandon Senior Soccer League and managed Jamie's Atom and Midget "AAA" hockey teams. He joined the Masonic family at Fenwick Lodge #158 in Brandon where he was Past Master and served as District Deputy Grand Master of the 7th Masonic District. He was a member of Valley of Scottish Rite and Brandon and District Shrine Club and the Sunrise Rotary Club in Medicine Hat. He volunteered on organizing committees for various golf tournaments including Optimist Youth Golf Tournament in Brandon and the Energy Services Invitational in Medicine Hat. Callum's greatest and fondest moments were spent with his family. He loved spending time at the hockey rink with Jamie, and never missed seeing Vanessa at a dance recital or festival. Extra special memories were caddying for Jamie at the Canadian Amateur Golf Championship and presenting Vanessa with her gavel when she was installed as Honored Queen. He enjoyed sharing his love of golf with many family members. He knew his hole-in-one was special, but said he was more excited to see Lorna get her hole-in-one. A special memory for him is the rounds played at the Fraserburgh Golf Club in Scotland and the trip with his family to Carnoustie Golf Links and the Old Course at St. Andrews. Callum and Lorna were dedicated very much to each other and were truly best friends. They enjoyed travelling together and shared many wonderful memories of Mexico, Scotland, Ireland and Dominican Republic. Callum was very much a family man and his values of honesty, unconditional love and support will live on through his children and family. He was ecstatic to be a Grandad and was especially grateful for time spent with grandson, Cade, the ray of sunshine in his life. Callum had impact on the lives of everyone he met, especially his wife, children, grandson, and even though he left us too early, we treasure every moment with him. To honour his memory Callum asks that you use the love and happiness in your heart to care for others to make the world a better place to live. “Play it where it lies” We would like to thank Dr. Haider, Saskatoon Cancer Clinic, and Dr. Mettle for their wonderful care of Callum during his illness.

DOBSON: Kenneth Leslie Dobson Jan. 9, 1932 – June 30, 2011. “Don’t be sad that I am gone, be happy that I was here”With the sun reflecting off the waves and the breeze rustling through the trees we remember with much love a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Kenneth Leslie Dobson. Ken was born in Fairfax Manitoba, the only son of Murray and Arva Dobson. He attended school in Fairfax and completed a degree in Agriculture at the University of Manitoba. He farmed near Fairfax until 1970 when he and his family moved to Carberry. He worked for Simplot until his retirement. He is sadly missed by his wife of 57 years, Donna, his children Brad (Bonnie), Karen (Egidio), his grandchildren Mitchell (Halle), Diana, Laura, Brian (Brenda), great- grandchildren Jonny and Celeste and by his faithful companion Benji. He loved all his family and friends dearly. Ken possessed an amazing gift of being able to create or repair almost anything. His mechanical skill appeared early in life – if some piece of equipment or tool he needed didn’t exist, he would make it. His home workshop became the source of beautifully crafted furniture, pictures, and decorative items his family and friends will always treasure. His summers at Clear Lake among his family and many friends have created treasured memories for all of us. He spent countless happy hours repairing cabins for neighbors as well as building his own. Everyone was welcomed to happy hour on the deck. His golfing friends will always remember their many hours spent on the course and in the clubhouse. He loved working in his yard looking after the lawn and garden while Mom tended the flowers. He loved to travel to new places and always had stories to tell of trips to Mexico, Jamaica, Hawaii, Costa Rica and throughout Canada and the US. A memorial service was held in Carberry United Church on July 4 with interment in Carberry cemetery, Rev. Peggy Reid officiating. If friends so desire, donations may be made in his memory to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Carberry Palliative Care Services.
When I’m Gone
When I come to the end of my journeyAnd I travel my last weary mile,Just forget if you can, that I ever frownedAnd only remember the smile.Forget unkind words I have spoken;Remember some good I have done.Forget that I ever had heartacheAnd remember I’ve had loads of fun.Forget that I’ve stumbled and blunderedAnd sometimes fell by the way.Remember I have fought some hard battlesAnd won, ere the close of day.Then forget to grieve for my going,I would not have you sad for a day,But in summer just gather some flowers And remember the place where I lay,And come in the shade of the eveningWhen the sun paints the sky in the west.Stand for a few moments beside meAnd remember only my best.
