In 1941 at 26 years of age, Elsie moved to Birtle to work in the T.E. Morris General Store and later for Leroy Dutton in the Drug Store. Elsie met Arthur Wilson Berry when she was working in the grocery store. She told him when they started dating that if he did not learn to dance and play cards; she would not go with him. He learned to do both very well. They married on April 5, 1944 at the farm at Strathclair and took over the farm North of Birtle from Art’s parents, Ernest and Minnie Berry who were moving to BC. Diane was born in 1947 and Pat in 1949. The family remained on the farm until 1959 when they moved into Birtle. Elsie worked for John Kines in The Macleod’s Store from 1959 to 1972. Art began full time carpentry. As Pat and Diane were growing up, Elsie was a leader in their activities, 4-H, Sunday School, and C.G.I.T. She was a member of the Women’s Institute for 50 years. She was instrumental in reviving the Birtle fair while she was the secretary of the Agriculture Society. When Art found work as a civilian carpenter at Shilo Armed Forces Base in 1972, they built a home at 15 Elviss Crescent in Brandon. Elsie worked at Kmart for 5 1Ž2 yearsin ladies wear. She took great pride in being honest with the customers and loved working retail. After retirement in 1978, Elsie and Art took bus trips, lawn bowled, floor shuffled, golfed and played cards at the Senior Centers. Elsie made many beautiful needlework pictures and quilts for the family. They had showy flowerbeds and a large garden. Summer weekends were spent at their cabin at Sandy Lake, called The Berry Patch. Lions Manor became home in June, 1996 where they enjoyed all the social activities. Elsie continued her quilt making donating many quilt tops to the Manor for quilting. Sadly, Art passed away on January 5, 2002, at the age of 88. Ten years later on February 11, 2006, because of failing memory she moved into Rideau Park Personal Care Home where she enjoyed the staff and the meals.

TYERMAN: Arthur (Art) Ernest; March 15, 1922 - October 12, 2010. He was born in Dauphin, Manitoba, spending most of his growing years near Tisdale, Saskatchewan on the farm, leaving the prairies for the first time to join the forces and fight in WW2. Upon his return, with his Scottish bride Catherine Stewart, Art took his first step into the trucking industry and never looked back. He bought a truck and started hauling logs in the bush of Northern Saskatchewan, where, for many winters, Catherine (Scottie) joined him as the camp cook. Art was a ‘trucker’ (transport driver) all of his working life; he was fortunate to find his passion and truly enjoyed his work. He met lots of people and travelled many miles over his lifetime, while ‘Scottie’ held the fort at home raising their three children, Gordon, Margaret, and Sheila. He and ‘Scottie’ had a good life, both challenging and rewarding. At his retirement they moved back to the country, to an acreage in Kemnay where he continued to tinker with vehicles and equipment and watch the semis travelling down the highway. He said his best TV show was his view of the highway out his front window. Art is predeceased by his wife Catherine, son Gordon, daughter- in-law Donna, brothers Ralph and Raymond, his Father Jack and Mother Hilda. He will be greatly missed by his brother Lawrence, sister Audrey (Murray), sister-in-law Frieda, daughters Margaret Tyerman and Sheila Reynolds (Barry), grandchildren Jason, Amber, Christen, Alissa, and Bradley, his 10 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends. Art will be remembered for his capacity as ‘Mr. Fixit’ and finding a use for everything. He will also be remembered for his stories, of the war, of the prairies in the early days, and of the many adventures he had throughout his life. If a song was dedicated to Art it might be one of Frank Sinatra’s tunes … ‘I Did it My Way’. That he did and he did it well. A graveside service will be held at the Brandon Cemetery on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. with Arlene Robertson officiating. Donations in memory of Art may be made to a charity of choice.
