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!

Ella loved camping, cooking, playing cards, Bingo, travel and knitting mitts for the local schools and hospital kids. A family celebration of her life has taken place in Brandon. Her generosity and fabulous food will be missed by the many grandchildren and great grandchildren. A special thank you to all the staff and volunteers who shared the last few years with Ella at the Fairview Home.
When I come to the end of the roadAnd the sun has set for me,I want no rites in a gloom filled room,Why cry for a soul set free?Miss me a little, but not too longAnd not with your head bowed low,Remember the love that we once sharedMiss me, but let me go.For this journey we all must takeAnd each must go alone,It's part of the Master's plan,A step on the road to home.So when you are lonely and sick at heartGo to the friends we know,And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,Miss me, but let me go.
