SCALE: With immeasurable sadness we mourn the tragic and sudden death of Richard Davies Scale, on 2nd October 2010, aged 60 years, near Boissevain, Manitoba. He leaves behind his heartbroken family; Nichola, his adoring wife, loving sons, James, Joseph and Francis, daughters-in-law Jana and Emily, sister and brother- in-law Kate and Glynne, and grand-daughter Evelyn. Richard will be remembered by all as a giant in stature and character; a strong man whose presence was truly felt by those around him. With his big grin and the twinkle in his eye he could instantly bring warmth and a jovial atmosphere to any gathering; a larger-than-life character who could not go unnoticed. He fiercely loved and protected his family, greeting every day with an iron handshake and a happy determination to provide for them with seemingly unlimited energy, strength and infectious enthusiasm. He lived by the firm belief that through a thoughtful approach and hard work anything was possible, and he was not afraid to think and dream 'big'. He was a generous and fun host, and a great friend to many; never too busy to lend his considerable help and advice to others, always ready for coffee and a chat, and with an enviable memory for detail that made every encounter truly personal. Richard was born in Haverfordwest, Wales, on January 27th 1950, to George and Margaret Scale of Syke Farm, Walwyn's Castle. He and his sister, Kate, grew up surrounded by the warmth and fun of Pembrokeshire's extensive farming community, and he became involved with many rural organizations and activities during his childhood and youth. These included Pembrokeshire Pony Club, Tiers Cross Young Farmers, North Pembs. Hunt, and the local jalopy racing club. Richard was educated first in the local village, moving on to Selwyn House Prep. School in Tenby and then to Wrekin College in Shropshire where he boarded for his senior years. He worked tirelessly with his father on the busy family farm, moving to his own farm near Pembroke aged 21. Originally his grandmother's charming smallholding, Ford Farm became a thriving, well-run business and a notable landmark under Richard's ownership and management, adding Poyerston dairy farm and a herd of award-winning pedigree Simmentals in later years. Amongst other achievements, his endeavours gained him selection to join the Worshipful Company of Farmer's course at Wye College in 1981. Still making time for off-farm pursuits, Richard was ardently involved with Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society, becoming chief ring steward at the County Show for some years, as well asmaking many new 'town' friends during his years in Pembroke Round Table, of which he became President in 1991. The births of James in 1979 and Joe in 1982, brought the joy of fatherhood to Richard's life, and added new supporting roles in activities such as mini-rugby, motocross, shooting and family trips, with Richard becoming the driver and supervisor of many fun rugby tours and birthday extravaganzas! In 1991, Richard and Nichola met in a real "love at first sight" moment, forging a bond of true life partnership, deep love and respect which prevailed in their future lives together with James, Joe and Francis. Their subsequent marriage and the decision to leave the confines of Welsh Farming in 1996, seeking opportunities under the massive Manitoba skies, heralded his happiest years of adventure, freedom and possibilities, and consolidated the family as they settled on the Minnedosa farm and into Canadian culture. In 2002, Prairie Silage Services was established, for which Richard has been most widely known in recent years, spending hardworking summers with 'the team', travelling throughout southern Manitoba and Eastern Saskatchewan. As the children moved on with their own lives, Richard and Nichola began to travel more, visiting the boys on the West Coast, as well as indulging theirnew-found enjoyment of winter vacations in hot, sunny countries. Richard would surely say that one of his dreams come true was visiting Joe and Emilyin Uganda last January incorporating a tour of six African Countries! Being 'Grandpa' to Evelyn also brought a new joy to Richard's life and an appreciation to the family for the continuation of life that makes this terrible loss bearable. Richard's funeral service, attended by hundreds of both local and overseas mourners, was held on October 9th at St Marks Anglican Church, Minnedosa, with his interment following in the beautiful hilltop surroundings of Minnedosa Cemetery, where his resting place aptly overlooks fields, the town and the lake. A memorial service will also be held at Carew Cheriton Church, near Pembroke, Wales, on December 22nd at 6:00 p.m. Richard leaves a legacy of wonderful memories, love and respect for his family, strong character and ideals in his three sons, and warmth and friendship for his friends and colleagues. This is truly reflected in the huge kindness that has been shown to the family at this difficult time, and they would like to give their heartfelt thanks to all those who have helped by continuing the silage business, helping in the fields, dropping meals to the house, or simply offering their support and good wishes. Donations in Richard's memory may be made to St Mark's Anglican Church Memorial Fund, Box 784, Minnedosa, Manitoba, R0J 1E0, or in Britain to St. James' Church, Walwyn's Castle, c/o Mr H. Scurlock, Gordy Hall, Littlehaven, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, SA62 3TT.

If you happened to drop by to visit Irma chances are you would find her in her garden where a guided tour a must.
Irma, God looked around his garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. Gods garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, so he closed your weary eyelids and whispered Peace be thine. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didnt go alone. For part of us went with you; The Day God Called You Home.Irma was a very active member of the Brandon Community volunteering with the Brandon Regional Health Authority Ladies Auxiliary, The Inner Wheel and The Nearly New Store.

STUART: Dorothy Stuart passed away after a courageous and lengthy battle with cancer. She will be greatly missed by her son Larry (Linda) Stuart andhis children Tammy (Jeff), Susan, Clint (Claire) and Tom; and by her daughter Cheryl (Roger) Winger and her children, Bart (Candice), Jordan and great granddaughter Suki. Dorothy will also be missed by her extended family, surviving friends and her faithful dog (Lucky). Dorothy was born on October 27, 1919 in Grandview, Manitoba. Her parents, aunts and uncles homesteaded in the Roblin, Grandview and Gilbert Plains area. She had one brother, George Irvan McCrae, who was killed in action in 1944. Dorothy received her complete education at the Grandview District School. In 1941 she married John Stuart. After the war, Johnny worked as a mechanic in Grandview and Gilbert Plains and then in Benito as an electrician. The family moved to Alberta where Johnny worked in the oil fields. In 1956, they purchased the Anglo gas station on the corner of #5 and #366 in Grandview. This became known as "Johnny's Service". Dorothy worked hard managing the station, caring for her children and taking care of her very large garden. In 1989, after Johnny passed away, she moved to Headingley, Manitoba where she lived in her "Granny House" with the Stuart family for 20 years. Her final years were spent in Brandon with Cheryl and Roger. Dorothy had a very positive attitude about life. She always said, " There is no sense in worrying or complaining about things", and she never did. She was also extremely hard working and always exceeded expectations in everything she worked at throughout her life. Dorothy was a very loving and caring person who enjoyed spoiling her family. While living in Headingley, she frequently prepared meals and had them ready as family returned home from work and school. Her grandson, Tom, lived in her home with her for many years. Dorothy loved to spoil him with breakfast in bed! She provided her grandchildren with music lessons and spent countless hours baking for her family and telling stories. She loved to reminisce about her life experiences. She led by example and encouraged her children and grandchildren to work hard, be positive and to be kind to others. Gardening and cooking were two of Dorothy's hobbies and she excelled at them. Fruit trees and flowers flourished in her gardens. She was a wealth of information and took such pride in being able to make even the most stubborn plants grow! Canning and preserving were a labour of love. She loved to pick her own berries and even in 2009 was out picking strawberries and black currants! She made the best pies, cakes, and jams and her family loved them. No celebration or holiday was complete without all of the fixings. Her Christmas pudding was a family favourite. Dorothy was intelligent and witty and always looked for new challenges to keep her mind active. When she wasn't cooking or gardening she enjoyed playing cribbage, spite and malice or a picture puzzle. She looked forward to the Winnipeg Free Press crosswords, crypto-quotes and in recent years even the sudoku puzzles. Dorothy was athletic. She played baseball in her younger years and was passionate about curling. She rarely missed watching the Manitoba curling teams on TV and was actively involved in the sport. She enjoyed curling with her friends and competing in bonspiels in Winnipeg and around the province. She was even in the Golden Girls Provincials when she was in her 70's! Dorothy remained physically active up until the last few months of her life. Even in her late 80s she enjoyed walking to get the newspaper, taking her dog "Lucky" out for a walk in the yard and when no one was looking even climbing on top of chairs to pick apples from her fruit trees. She was a strong woman in many ways and was always determined to continue to do as much for herself as she possibly could. She was very proud of her family and sang their praises every chance she got. They are all so grateful for the support she has given them over the years. She was always there with a smile, a pizza bun, a rhubarb pie or a word of praise. Grandma, we will keep you in our hearts always. You played such a big role in making us who we are. The way you lived your life and the person you were is an inspiration to us all. A service will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 6, 2010 at Memories Chapel, 330 - 18th Street North, Brandon, Manitoba.
