SHIER: Clarence Gerald Shier. Gerald passed away May 3, 2012 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre, after a short illness. Gerald was born January 1st, 1930 at home on the farm north of Crandall, MB. He attended school in Crandall, not quite finishing grade 11. He was a born farmer and worked hard there from an early age, stating that he had driven a “stook” team during threshing at the age of 11, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. After marrying he took over the mixed farm from his father, specializing in dairy cattle for about 10 years until 1973 and continued with beef cattle until 1982, then just grain farmed until 1992 when he rented the land, eventually selling the farm in the mid 2000. He loved dogs, his favourite being his last, a blue heeler named Oscar. He spent one winter, 1950-1951 at Wawa, ON at the mine. Gerald was a very community minded person, he helped build 2 rinks and worked at times upgrading the Community Hall. He served on the Crandall School and Pool Elevator Boards in the 60’s, and then was a member of the Bird Tail School Division for 9 years until 1980. During that time he was also the secretary of the Manco Creamery and Cheese Plant at Rossburn 1970-1974. He was in the Miniota Municipal Council, 1980-2002. When the Upper Assiniboine Conservation District was formed in 1996 he was one of the original board members and was still serving on this board and made many lasting friendships during these years. Gerald enjoyed sports, playing baseball, hockey and curling. He also umpired baseball and refereed hockey. He enjoyed hunting with the guys. Gerald and his wife spent many years after 1980 camping and fishing, he was renowned for his filleting and cooking skills. Other favourite pastimes were old time dancing, playing cards, playing pool, and visiting friends. Again Gerald and Nora enlarged their circle of acquaintances. Gerald was predeceased by his sons, Vincent and Gordon, brother Barry, father and mother, Clarence and Helen Shier, father and mother-in-law, Gordon and Lois Vickery, sister and brother-in-law Sheila and Frank Thiede.

DONOGH: Jaydon Andrew Donogh was born June 12, 1988 to John and Darcie Donogh. He was the third namesake to the J.A. Donogh title, preceded by his grandfather John Alexander Donogh and his father John Archibald Donogh. It is with immeasurable sadness we acknowledge his passing on April 16, 2012. Jaydon was raised near Souris on the fourth generation family farm in the R.M. of Glenwood. Jaydon had a deep love for this property and the family property at Terence. Jaydon was always a very active child and in his youth participated in swimming lessons - which he viewed as a life skill not a recreational sport, minor ball, Canskate and 4-star synchronized skating. He was an active member of Beavers and Cubs and remained supportive of the group even as an adult. He attended Sunday School at St. Paul’s United Church regularly. He also participated in Army Cadets. Jaydon was proud to be a graduate of Souris School. As a close family friend once so succinctly expressed, Jaydon “lives large!” And that he did! From the moment he was born until his tragic death, he pushed limits and climbed yet that next mountain to keep, as he would affectionately tell us, John and I, young. His hair-raising adventures knew no boundaries! Jaydon’s entire life was spent as much outdoors as he could arrange. His absolute pride and joy, his little motorized yellow scooter, gave way in time to bigger and, yes faster and LOUDER vehicles, including his Jeep, then the Silverado and then the Dodge. These were his “roadworthy” vehicles but there were absolutely hundreds of less auspicious and certainly not safetied vehicles that provided Jaydon with hours of entertainment and adventure. Jaydon loved to be needed and help others and believed he had something to share, and that he did. He had a sharp sense of humor and there was not a person, young or old, that he wouldn’t rush to their aid if he thought he could help. One of Jaydon’s most hair-raising adventures was when he rescued a woman’s cell phone from the crevice in the cement block patio in a hotel in Winnipeg. Of course, the rest of the story was that he rescued the cell phone by shimmying down from the tenth floor...and then owned up to his nerve numbing antics. An adventure last spring when Jaydon was attacked by a coyote through his open truck window resulted in the death of the coyote and a rabies series for Jaydon. He was tough, fearless and so he believed, invincible. He had developed new interests this year and was enjoying “sticks and pucks” at the Sportsplex on a regular basis, and had really improved his skill and strength on ice. He and his fiancé Meghan Houston enjoyed every Wheat Kings game they could possibly attend and especially enjoyed traveling to Winnipeg on the bus for the playoff games. He also had taken up ice fishing this winter and we loved to eat his catch as much as he liked providing it. Family was extremely important to Jaydon and he was so proud of his sister Chelsea and brother Brodie. His grandmas he loved dearly and he treasured the love of his life, Meghan Houston. Jaydon is survived by his parents, John and Darcie, and his sister Chelsea and brother Brodie; and fiancé Meghan Houston. Jaydon is also survived by his grandmothers, Marj Dandridge and Wilma Donogh; and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Jaydon was predeceased by grandfathers, Lloyd Dandridge and Jack Donogh. Jaydon’s service was held on April 24th, the same date as Grandpa Dandridge’s service in 1990. Jaydon’s zest for life is reflected in a verse on a wall plaque that he, no doubt with Meghan’s assistance, chose for us last Christmas.
Life is like a stroll on the beach, as near to the edge as you can go.” We love you Jaydon. You are one of our sunshines!
