ANDREWS: Alice Patricia Andrews (nee Chisholm) was a wife, sister, aunt, relative and a good friend to all she met. Alice was born May 24, 1922 on a farm south of Lafleche, Saskatchewan. She passed away September 4, 2012. Alice was predeceased by her husband Ernest in 2002, her parents Duncan and Myrtle Chisholm, brothers Donald, Melvin, Allister, sister Margaret. Alice is survived by her brother Calvin of Edmonton, numerous nieces and nephews. Alice’s early education was in Lafleche, Saskatchewan. In 1944 she graduated from the Brandon General Hospital (BGH) School of Nursing and began her nursing profession as a General Duty Nurse at Deloraine Memorial Hospital. In 1945 Mrs. Andrews was appointed Head Nurse at BGH on a surgical ward and later was promoted to Head Nurse on a medical-surgical ward. During this period she was also on private duty at BGH. In 1951 Alice journeyed west to continue her nursing career as General Duty Nurse at the Royal Alexander Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta and at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, B.C. Alice returned to Brandon in 1954 as an assistant teacher in the School of Nursing (surgery and orthopedic nursing area). After 2 years in that capacity, her appointment to Evening Supervisor in 1956 followed where she remained until her transfer to Area Coordinator. In 1963 she received her diploma in Nursing Administration which was followed in 1968 by a diploma from the Manitoba Institute of Management. A third diploma was received in 1970 from ACC, Management Development in basic instruction. Alice belonged to several committees and was a member of the Board of Directors of the BGH Credit Union, including a 2 year term as President. In 1953 Alice married Ern Andrews. They were keenly interested in travel and after Alice’s early retirement in 1978, they visited several foreign countries, with Hawaii being their favorite. Alice, her sister Marg and (Marg’s) kids would travel to Edmonton and the mountains every year. The nephews still talk about the adventures of those trips and have many fond memories. Alice loved to ‘dress-up’ and either attend gala dinners or put on her own elaborate dinners. It was often said that “there wasn’t anything she couldn’t cook and do it great”. From turkey dinners to Oyster Rockefeller to Flaming Duck La Ronge and oh the cream puffs! Alice and Ern did not have any children of their own; the nieces and nephews were all their kids. For many of us who were involved in sports or others activities we can’t forget Alice in the stands as our number 1 cheer leader. It wasn’t hard to hear her give her opinion of a call made by an umpire or referee. The family would like to thank the staff of Fairview Home for the care Alice received as a resident.
WHITE: Mitchell James, (July 9, 1957 - December 10, 2012). Mitch passed away in Brandon, MB on Monday, December 10, 2012 at the age of 55 years. He was born on July 9, 1957 in Portage la Prairie, the second of three born to Alan and Hilda. He followed Murray, and was in turn followed by Tara. Mitch was always a sportsman, involved in hockey and baseball, winter and summer. Hockey started for Mitch at age four, and he was part of a number of city and provincial championship teams in his day. Highlights of his hockey years included playing for the Ft. Garry Warriors as a Pee-Wee, and representing Manitoba in the Western Canadian Pee-Wee tournament – which they won. He also played for Portage in Jr. B and Jr. A hockey. He was shortstop and 2nd baseman in baseball and softball, which occupied a lot of summers. When he got a little older, he enjoyed golf and water-skiing, as well. Mitch graduated from Arthur Meighan High School; but years before he graduated, he got his start in what would turn out to be a career with Canada Safeway. At age 19, work with Safeway took Mitch to Thompson, where he met Vickie Cooper. Dustin was born in August of 1981, three days after they moved to Brandon. Mitch and Vickie were married in May 1982 in Thompson. Michael was born in March of 1984 and not long after, Mitch found himself caught up in a slowdown at the Safeway. It was then that Vickie decided to go back to school, and she started studies to become a nurse. It was quite a role reversal for Mitch, to find himself being the primary parent; but he really took to it and was always there for his boys. When they got old enough for hockey, Mitch was at the rink, serving as timekeeper, or team manager, or goal judge. Both boys were goalies, Dustin playing until AA Bantams, and making the travelling team; and Michael playing into High School. Of course, Mitch knew everybody at the rink. Mitch shared his passion for hunting and fishing with his sons as well, and Vickie put up with his need to camp. Vickie tried to civilize him a bit by taking him out to see live theatre, which he was surprised to discover that he enjoyed. If Vickie put up with camping, and Mitch with theatre, they shared an interest in travel. There were three trips to Portugal, a few more to Mexico, a trip to the Maritimes, Cuba, Holland, and Vegas, always with friends. Last year, with Mike working in China, Mitch and Vickie were able to go all the way to Vietnam, where they met up with him. Mitch, who always had an interest in history, found that a really fascinating trip. As a parent, Mitch always wanted the best for his sons. He was proud of Michael’s success in school, and the way his career took him around the world. He was thrilled to be Poppa to Dustin’s daughters, Riley and Brooklynn, who were a real joy to him, especially in these last months. Mitch leaves behind his mother, Hilda, brother Murray and spouse Heather, sister Tara, Vickie, his wife of 30 years, and his sons, Dustin and Michael and his partner, Lesley. Mitch is also sadly missed by his granddaughters Riley and Brooklynn, and their mother Jen, as well as his in-laws, Al and Joyce Cooper, his sisters-in-law Debbie and husband Dennis, Penny and husband Lyle, Pam and husband Steve, his brothers-in-law Brent and wife Nancy, and Kim and wife Marilyn, and a countless number of nieces and nephews. Mitch made friends wherever he was, and from Portage, Thompson, Brandon and beyond, many will miss his company and treasure the memory of this man. A memorial service was held at Central United Church on December 15, 2012 with Rev. Joe Ball officiating. Interment will take place at a later date. Donations may be made to Central Plains Cancer Care Services, 318 Saskatchewan Avenue East, Portage la Prairie, MB, R1N 0K8.
