BALDROW: Irma Constance (Watson) beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away peacefully at her residence in Fairview Home on Thursday October 25, 2012 at the age of 89 years. Irma is lovingly remembered by her children Arline (Ken) and Keith, grandchildren Craig (Christy), Lindsey (Tim) and Laird, great grandchild Olivia Rose. Irma was predeceased by her husband Harold (Bud) in 1995 and her son Warren (Rusty) in 1979, her parents Agnes and William Watson, her four sisters and one brother. Irma was born on January 02, 1923 in Truro N.S. When she was eight her mother passed away and she moved to Manitoba to live with her Mother’s sister Aunt Annie and her husband Uncle Harry on their farm near Shoal Lake, MB. Over the years, Irma kept in close contact with her sisters. There were lots of letters written, many phone calls and trips to Nova Scotia to visit. Irma attended school in Shoal Lake and worked as a telephone operator with MTS in Shoal Lake. She met her husband Harold (Bud) Baldrow in Shoal Lake and they were married April 14, 1948. They resided in Brandon and raised their three children. In 1979, she faced a tragedy when her eldest son, Warren, was killed in a plane crash. Mom was a wonderful homemaker who loved nothing more than caring for her family, making delicious meals, and her baking was enjoyed by all. As her family grew up, she went back to work first at Woolco in their sewing centre and later to The Bay and Zellers. After Dad passed in 1995, Mom remained in her home until 1997. She moved to The Towers and then to The Colonial Estates. In the spring of 2009, after a brief stay at the Assiniboine Centre, she moved to Fairview Home. We would like to thank Dr. Blyth and the staff on the first floor at Fairview Home for their professional and compassionate care of Irma. A private family interment took place at the Brandon Cemetery with Rev. Craig Miller officiating. Donations in memory of Irma may be made to a charity of choice.

TAYLOR: William “George” Taylor passed away peacefully with family by his side at his home in Valleyview Care Centre in Brandon, Manitoba on October 24, 2012 at the age of 92 years. George was born at Clearwater, Manitoba into the family of John and Bertha Taylor. There were 12 children in that family and he was the last surviving member. As a young man, he began work as a mechanic – working with his brother, Johnny, at a garage which they operated in Ninga. Unfortunately, that garage burned down and George continued for a while working at another garage in Ninga. It was while in Ninga that George married Doris Halliday on November 7, 1951. They were married at Fairfax, Manitoba. George and Doris shared nearly 60 years of married life. They moved to Boissevain where George continued working as a mechanic at Massey Ferguson dealership operated by John Sushelnitsky. After some time in Boissevain, they moved to Brandon where George did mechanical work for Mazers Group for several years, and then moved over to H.E. Wright Equipment for a number of years. Finally, George worked for Canadian Pacific Railroad in Brandon until his retirement. George and Doris enjoyed many years of camping, fishing, and many trips together. George will always be remembered for his phenomenal memory, his ability to know correctly, although blind, where he was on a drive, what was just ahead or around the corner – who lived there and whatever George’s mechanical talents had been required at that farm. He loved to dance and sing and he sang the best rendition of “Waiting for a Train.” He was a master shuffleboard player. George was predeceased by his wife Doris on January 13, 2011. His parents John and Bertha Taylor and his family Mary and Walter Saunders, Alex and Jean Taylor, Sadie and Earl Preston, Johnny Taylor, Inez and Bill Stuart, Margaret and Ralph Mickle, Jeannette and Sam Beavis, Mildred and Ian Collins, Madelaine and Clarence Hodgson, Pat and Charles Baker, Archie and Mabel Taylor, and foster brother Raymond Dennett. He was also predeceased by Doris’ parents Bill and Stella Halliday, brothers-in-law Melvin Blanchard, Alvin Cruse, Alex Wilson and Russ Peterson. He is survived by sisters-in-law Elsie Taylor, of Barrie, ON, Madge Cruse of Boissevain, Phyllis Wilson Peterson of Gilbert, Arizona, Violet (Lloyd) Burton of Brandon, Edith Blanchard of Boissevain and brothers-in-law Bill (Pat) Halliday of Brandon and Jim (Patricia) Halliday of Boissevain. George is also survived by many nieces and nephews and their families. A memorial service was held at the Brockie Donovan on Friday, October 26, 2012 with Rev. Harvey Hurren officiating. Interment followed at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. The family wish to thank the very caring staff at Valleyview Care Centre.

ROSCOE: Peacefully on October 18th, 2012 in his 91st year of life Joe passed away. Joe was born in Brandon, MB on May 19 1921, the son of Sophie & Frank Roski. At 19 years of age in June 1940, he enlisted in The Royal Winnipeg Rifles and served proudly in World War II until his discharge in September1945. Shortly following his return from the war he met Doreen Sheardown. They were married in 1948 and shared 50 wonderful years together. In 1956 they purchased their first, and last home where they lived for the rest of their lives. They loved to travel to Mexico and Las Vegas in the early years of their marriage. In 1948 they welcomed their first son Danny, and son Terry followed in 1952. A proud father who enjoyed coaching his sons sports teams, Joe worked at both CNR, and the Dutch Bakery prior to his 25 year employment at Canada Post. Throughout his well deserved retirement, he loved to spend time with his family and friends. He was a home body, and always joked he had walked through Europe for 5 years and that he had travelled enough to last a lifetime. He enjoyed spending time at the Legion where he was very involved, and an extremely proud Veteran. He was also a very proud Grandfather who never missed a recital, Christmas concert, birthday, graduation, or any important milestone in his Grandchildren's lives. His presence always brought joy to a room, as he was quite the charmer. His famous dance moves, singing, and hysterical comments were always memorable. He was always up on the latest health information and was the first to tell anyone who visited him or whom he visited his newest health tip. His grandchildren remember well that every time they left grandpa's house he would present them with a chocolate, a werthers, or a loonie. Joe was predeceased by his wife Doreen in 1998, parents Sophie & Frank. Siblings Emily, Ann, Mickey, Pete, and Bill and beloved Granddaughter Trish. Left to remember Joe are his sons Danny Roscoe (Cheryle), Terry Roscoe (Donna), grandchildren Logan Armstrong (Rory) Stephanie Roscoe, Terry Brown, Jordy and Great Grandchildren Ashley and Jade. A private family graveside service was held in the Veterans' Section of the Brandon Cemetery. Honor Guard was provided by Legion Branch #3 members. Officiant was Legion Padre Chris Arthur. A Come and Go reception to honor Joseph's life followed at Memories Chapel. Donations in memory of Joseph may be made to Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Winnipeg Chapter, P.O. Box 21008 RPO Charleswood, Winnipeg, MB R3R 3R2 or The Canadian Cancer Society, 415-1st Street, Brandon, MB R7A 2W8. A special thank you to the wonderful nurses at the Assiniboine Centre in Palliative Care for taking the time to be so compassionate and caring. The four nursing students from BU were especially wonderful, and in particular Kaitlyn, who really touched all of our hearts. These wonderful girls made Grandpa's days so wonderful and told him they would wear poppies in his honor on Remembrance Day. Such a gesture meant the World to him.
His favourite salutation was......."May the good Lord take a liking to you" and Dad/Joe/Grandpa........"May the good Lord take a liking to you!" Bye for now.
