KORPAN: (Nee Hunter) Goldie Grace. December 27, 1924 - August 21, 2010. It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, and sister, Goldie Grace Korpan on Saturday, August 21, 2010 at the age of 85 years. Goldie was born and spent her early years in Mortlach, Saskatchewan. She received her registered nurse's training at the Winnipeg General Hospital and graduated in 1947. She nursed in hospitals in Georgia, Colorado, Vancouver and Dauphin before marrying Walter (Wally) Korpan in 1951. Wally was her life partner and constant companion. Together they made their homes in Estevan, Willow Bunch, Ashern, Dominion City, Flin Flon and Brandon as Wally's career with CIBC progressed. Wally devoted much of his life to community service and Goldie was always there a tower of quiet strength and the quintessential hostess, always prepared to entertain whoever dropped by. They loved to travel. First there were road trips and camping with the two girls and then winter holidays. Hawaii was a favourite location as was spending time with friends and family in Florida, Texas, Arizona, California and Mexico. The trips to Australia, New Zealand, Bali and Hong Kong satisfied their desire for more exotic adventure and just a year ago, Goldie sailed through the Panama Canal. Left to cherish her memory are two daughters, Denise (David Koss) and Wanda (Fred Seeley); grandchildren, Vance, Shane, and Lisa; brothers, Doug, Wallace, Kelvin (Helen) and Ron (Carol); sister Laura; sisters-in-law, Clara and Betty; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Wally of forty-nine years; parents, Ethyl and William; brother Bruce; and sisters, Etta, Olga, Alma and Velma. A Celebration of Goldie's Life will be held at McInnis Holloways Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB) on Saturday, September 4, 2010 at 2:00 p.m.

GOMPF: Mary Charlotte (McLaughlin) Gompf passed away August 3, 2010 at the Souris Health Centre at the age of 90. Husband, Charlie Gompf passed away October 20, 1995. Mary Charlotte Gompf was born the third child and only daughter to Jane and William Laughlin McLaughlin, also fondly known to friends and family as Jean and Lockie. Jean passed away October 22, 1953 and Lockie on April 10, 1972. Mary was born at her Grandma Collies home in Hamiota on January 19, 1920. She had two brothers, William, known as Bill, born in 1915, who was a mechanic by trade and who passed away August 7, 1947 and George, born in 1917, who was a machine gunner with the Winnipeg Grenadiers during WW2. George died in a Tokyo prison camp December 20, 1943 and is interred in a cemetery in Yokahama, Japan. Mary is survived by good friends, Don & Flo MacMillan, Louise and Don Jay, many nieces and nephews on the Gompf side, Collie and McLaughlin cousins and many friends and acquaintances. In her growing up years in the Hamiota area, Mary was known to many families for her willingness to help and care for neighbours and friends. If someone needed a hand as a nanny, she was there to help out. Many members of the community who suffered from illness, frailty or failing health felt the help of Marys caring hands with housework or babysitting. She was always more than willing to do whatever was required of her. She was certainly not afraid of hard work and took great pride in all of her endeavors. Many describe Mary as a woman of few words, but when she spoke her mind, she meant it. She was gentle and kind, despite a life that held many adversities. Mary received her education at Hamiota. She worked several years as farm help and later in the laundry department at the Hamiota Hospital. She was a dedicated daughter and cared for her ailing father in his later years after her mother passed away. Mary married Charlie Gompf December 17, 1983 in the Hamiota United Church. They lived there for a few years and then moved to Brandon, Manitoba where Charlie worked as a part time chef. Mary and Charlie moved to Souris to care for Charlies brother Bill Gompf. After Uncle Bills death they purchased their home in Souris. Mary continued to live in her home for a few years and then moved to Victoria Park Lodge in Souris. Mary never had a drivers license but kept mobile by driving her motorized scooter around town. Mary loved visitors and kept busy doing puzzles, crocheting afghans, blankets and vests and knitting slippers. Mary was a faithful member of the Ladies Unit at the United Church and could always be counted on to bring the fruits of her labours to all the bake sales and activities this group was involved in. She preferred to work behind the scene and could usually be found making tea or peeling potatoes in the kitchen rather than out serving the guests. We would like to thank Donald and Flo MacMillan for their caring, staff at Victoria Park Lodge and Souris Health Centre, Dr. Cram, Shirley McBurney for her kind words and Kowalchuks Funeral Home for arrangements. Interment of ashes has taken place at Hamiota Cemetery. In memory of Mary, donations may be made to the Heart & stroke Foundation.
