GERVIN: Winifred Kathryn. It is with deep sadness that the family of Winifred Kathryn Gervin announce her passing at her home in Boissevan on November 21, 2010. Winifred was born on January 30, 1918 at West Liberty, Iowa. She was the last surviving child of Albert and Winifred Anderson. Winifred was predeceased by infant twin boys, her two sisters, Marion and Jane, and one brother, Albert, her husband Alton, her son Pat and her son-in-law Howard Miller. Winifred’s family moved from Iowa to Drumheller, Alberta in 1927 where they made their livelihood farming. It was Drumheller, where Winifred met Alton and their courtship began. They were married in Calgary, Alberta on December 21, 1937, the first day of the winter solstice and the start of nearly 55 years of a wonderful union! In 1941 Winifred and Alton moved from Drumheller to Goodlands, Manitoba and lived there for 32 years, raising their family of 10 children. Even though our home was full, Winifred could always make room for an extra person or two at the table. In 1973 Winnifred and Alton moved to Boissevain where she resided at 712 McKenzie Street until her passing. Winifred was an active member of the U.C.W. at Goodlands for many years, and was always eager to lend a helping hand for any community event. After moving to Boissevain, she enjoyed her position on the board of the Boissevain Library. She was a proud member of the Boissevain I.O.D.E. Winifred used to joke that she was probably the only person who was a member of the International Order of the Daughters of the Empire AND a chartered member of the Daughters of the American Revolution! Winifred’s entire life centered around her home and her children. She measured happiness, success and strength through her family and their constant growth. The arrival of a new baby was her life’s delight! Winifred is survived by 9 children and their spouses, 28 grandchildren and 41 great-grandchildren. Winifred’s life was rich with family. She found joy in simple pleasures: a neatly tended flower bed, watching the song birds at a freshly filled feeder, conquering the challenge of her daily crossword puzzle. We will miss her dearly but more than anything we are grateful to have known her and for all the countless ways she enriched our lives. A graveside service celebrating Winifred’s life was held on November 25, 2010 at Goodlands, Manitoba. Active pallbearers were grandsons, Curtis Gervin, Patrick Gervin, Gary Gervin, Scott Sambrook, Matt Palmer, and James Miller. The remaining grandchildren were in attendance as honorary pallbearers.We want to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who joined us on November 25, 2010 to celebrate Mom’s life. Your comfort and support throughout Mom’s illness, on the day of her service and since her passing has been greatly appreciated. Thank you also to the Goodlands ladies for preparing the lunch and to everyone who has made donations in Mom’s memory. It is a great comfort to know that our Mother touched so many lives with her kindness and that many hearts will remember her with love.
From the Gervin Family.
Here She Comes
I am standing on the seashore A ship spreads her sails to the morning breezeand starts for the ocean.I stand watching her until she fades on the horizonand someone at my side says,“She is gone!”Gone where?The loss of sight is in me, not in her.Just at the moment when someone says, “She is gone!,there are others watching her coming.Other voices take up the glad shout,“Here she comes!”

PASKEWITZ: Reynold John. With family by his side, Rey peacefully passed away on Thursday, February 17, 2011 at his home in Rideau Park Personal Care Home, Brandon, MB, following a battle with Parkinson’s disease. Rey was born on June 24, 1927, in the RM of Strathcona, the third son of John and Olga (Goltz) Paskewitz. He grew up on the farm where he developed his love of the outdoors and nature. He started school at Pelican Lake School, also attending school at Ninette, Manitoba, and St. Paul’s College in Winnipeg. He was rather proud of the fact that he, and his brothers, also attended St Michael’s Academy (for girls) in Brandon for two weeks preparation for their first communion. After trying a few varied jobs, Rey decided to farm. About the same time he met the love of his life, Phyllis Brown. He and Phyllis were married on Wednesday, July 16, 1952 at St. Augustine’s Roman Catholic Church in Brandon. While they farmed in the Ninette area, their four children arrived; David, Vincent, Moya and Neil. In 1966, the family left the farm, and following a camping trip to the West Coast they settled in Brandon. Rey began working for MacLeod’s Store with the idea of a family business percolating in his mind. The resulting idea was the establishment of Meadowlark Campground in 1967. For Rey this was a dream come true, a family business and the outdoors, all in one and an outlet for his inventive mind. While family was of prime importance to Rey, so too was his church being a faithful parishioner at the Dunrea Catholic Church and the St Augustine’s Roman Catholic Church. Rey and Phyllis enjoyed camping throughout Canada and the United States, and Rey grabbed the chance of a lifetime when he joined his brother Gene and travelled to Hong Kong and China. In their retirement years, Rey and Phyllis cherished summers spent at their cottage on Pelican Lake surrounded by family and friends. Shortly after the death of his beloved Phyllis, and with failing health, Rey chose to move to Rideau Park Personal Care Home where he was well cared for by the staff. Rey was predeceased by his wife, Phyllis; his parents; brothers Alban and Eugene Paskewitz; their wives Vera and Gerry; his brother-in-law “Mac” Brown and his wife Vicky. Rey is survived by his children; David (Fay), Vincent (Diane), Moya (Neil) Tarr, and Neil (Nancy); grandchildren Amanda, Ken and Christie (Jason Smith) Paskewitz, Scott, Holly and Meghan Paskewitz, Keith (Andrea) and Carey Tarr, and Taylor Paskewitz; great- grandchildren: Emery Smith and Jaxon Tarr; his sister-in-law Janette Brown; as well as many nieces and nephews and their families. Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, February 26, 2011 at 11 a.m. at St. Augustine’s Roman Catholic Church 327-4th Street with Father Dominic Yuen as Celebrant. Interment will follow at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, P.O Box 767, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R7C 2L4 or to a charity of your choice.

ANDERSEN: Albert (Ab) Peter. It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Ab Andersen, loving husband, father and grandfather at the age of 80 on February 19, 2011. He adored and was adored by his wife of 46 1Ž2 years, Elaine. Also left behind to celebrate his life are: his daughter Sandra (David) and grandchildren Zachary, Meagan and Dalen; and his son Glenn “Boss” (Shannon – his Ray of Sunshine) and grandchildren Hannah and Ella. He was predeceased by his parents Andrew and Hansine, brothers John and Hans, and sisters Johanna McInnes, Kathleen Westwood and Olga Nichols, and survived by his brother Andy (Roya). Ab was born on March 9, 1930, in Moline, Manitoba. He retired from Fort Ignition in Brandon, Manitoba (formerly Sharp’s Auto Electric) after 17 years of dedicated service. He will be remembered for his quick dry sense of humour; for his deep blue eyes; his dependability; his hard work; and his manicured lawn and trees. Dad was a fiercely independent and proud man – who worked so very hard and sacrificed so very much to support his family to ensure they had everything they ever wanted and more – the mark of a great man, wonderful husband and best dad. His family was his hobby - whether it was chauffeuring his kids around to activities, doing our paper routes when we were “too busy”, taking us fishing, bowling, or inviting us to join him in his favourite sport – golf. Dad and I (Glenn) must have played over 300 rounds of golf together over the years – though neither of our scores seemed to be indicative of that. Sandra treasures the many memorable hours she spent with dad in his greenhouse and how it sparked her continued love of watching plants grow. He will be remembered by his grandchildren as a silly grandpa who made them laugh – usually at his own expense, and who went to their karate tournaments, soccer games, water polo games, dance recitals, ringette games, graduations from high school, film school, and the military – despite (as he says) being deaf as a post and blind as a bat. They have fond memories of the many sleepovers at grandma and grandpa’s house and how grandpa was able to pamper each in a way that made them feel extra special. He will be remembered by his wife as the love of her life, soul mate and partner in every sense of the word. He was so strong – and he fought his horrible cancer with grace and dignity. We want to thank the doctors and nurses at Cancer Care Manitoba, the Palliative Care Program, and Riverview Health Centre for helping him keep his grace and dignity during his courageous battle. Additional thanks to Dayna – student nurse at Riverview - for making him smile and nicknaming him the Silver Fox. Thanks to all our friends for your overwhelming support, with a special thank you to our dear friend Susan Cull, who truly went above and beyond to help us give dad the best care. Dad, you were right - you will be golfing again this summer! We miss you so much. A memorial reception to honor Ab’s life will be held at Thomson “In the Park” Funeral Home on Friday, February 25 from 2:00 – 4:30, with the eulogy being read at 3:00. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Ave., Winnipeg, Manitoba R3E 0V9 or to The Heart and Stroke Foundation, 200-6 Donald St., Winnipeg, Manitoba R3L 0K6 Thomson “In the Park” 925-1120.Condolences may be sent to www.thomsoninthepark.com

ELLIS: Frank Ernest Ellis. April 3, 1915 – February 16, 2011. Frank Ernest “Ernie” Ellis was a man who loved his family, his friends, and his country. He married Alyce Meddin 1946.

He was predeceased by his parents, seven brothers and sisters, and one infant son, Percy John Ernest Ellis. Ernie enjoyed life. His irrepressible sense of humour, genuine love of people, sharp wit, and his joie de vivre permeated every activity in which he participated. His interest in people of all ages and from all walks of life made him many friends with whom he shared tours, parties, pit barbecues, meetings, conventions, and many community events.He farmed just north of Wawanesa all his life, and established a seed cleaning and fertilizer business entitled Ellis Farm Supplies, on the south side of Wawanesa. His commitment to land conservation and his love of nature led him to serve on the boards of many farming organizations (the Wawanesa Crop Improvement Club, the Wawanesa Cooperative Elevator Assoc., the Wawanesa Consumers Co-op Assoc.) He wrote a column called “The Rural Scene” in the local paper, the Wawanesa Optimist, as well as a column called “On the Manitoba Range” for The Canadian Cattleman.A strong belief that agriculture flourished under the conditions of competition and freedom led Ernie, along with other like-minded farmers to establish the Manitoba Stock Growers’ Assoc., now called the Manitoba Beef Growers’ Assoc.Ernie worked to promote excellence in farming and the production of good seed. He served on the board of the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair, where he annually presented a trophy to the winner of the Manitoba Flax Championship. He was a member of the Canadian Seed Growers’ Assoc. for over twenty years and produced pedigreed seed on his farm.Hewas committed to active participation in democracy. He was president of the Brandon-Souris Liberal Assoc., president of the Souris-Killarney Assoc., and ran as the Liberal candidate for the position of MLA for the Souris-Lansdowne Constituency. He alsoserved on the Oakland Council for eleven years. His love of Canada was always the bedrock of his convictions.Ernie’s community work started at the age of thirteen, when he helped build the rink at the corner of Park and Fourth Streets in Wawanesa. Fifty-three years later, at the age of sixty he was elected chairman of the first Board of Directors of the newly opened Wawanesa& District Recreation Centre. His fundraising for this new rink included skating around the rink with a 100 lb. bag of grain on his shoulders.In 1989 when Wawanesa celebrated its Centennial, Ernie and Alyce spent countless hours researching and writing the history of the Village of Wawanesa for Sipiweski, Light through the Trees, the book published for this occasion. This book continues to be a major resource of information about the community.Ernie had a major interest in the standard of health care in Wawanesaand rural areas. He was a trustee of the governing board of the Wawanesa & District Hospital for twenty years, serving as chairman for the last twelve years. He was elected to the Board of Directors of the Manitoba Health Organization. In these capacities he wrote briefs and made presentations advocating for the additional facilities needed for those who required long term personalcare. His greatest concern was the need for effective representation of the rural area so that suitable health programs would be developed for its needs. Classical music was a constant source of enjoyment and solace for Ernie. He played the trombone in the award-winning Wawanesa Band from the age of thirteen until it disbanded during the war years. He continued listening to music for the rest of his life. His collection of CDs numbered in the hundreds.Ernie had a creed by which he lived:
“This above all: to thine own self be true,And it must follow,as the night the day,Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
(Hamlet).The family would like to express their sincere thank you for the loving care that Ernie received at the WawanesaPersonal Care Home. They deeply appreciate the personal quality and the high standard of health professionalism that the staff provided. A tribute in Ernie’s memory will be held at a later date.
