ROBERTSON: Garnet Austin Robertson of Brandon, passed away on November 12, 2011 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre – Assiniboine Centre. Garnet was born June 12, 1925 in Winnipeg, MB. He was the son of Jack and Eva Robertson. He was predeceased by his parents, wife Della, baby daughter Marsha Lynn, brother Ross and sister-in-law Yvonne. Garnet spent most of his growing up years in Isabella and took his schooling there. His dad showed hackney horses and this is where Garnet developed a love for horses. He went on to show horses himself. Garnet joined the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of 17 and completed 32 missions. Although he returned to Canada physically unscathed, the war years defined him for the rest of his life. He didn’t talk much about the war, but he was able to write about his memories and shared them with his children in a booklet called Ghost Squadron. Garnet married Della Lints in 1946 and began his career as a station agent. This career resulted in many moves within Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Two communities became “home” to Della and Garnet– Wawanesa and Maryfield (where they made a home for over twenty years). Garnet had many interests over his lifetime including curling, fishing, carpentry and gardening. All through the years, Garnet had a green thumb. Everywhere he moved his yard became a showpiece. Garnet is survived by his children Terry (Alma), Harvey (Cheryl) and daughter Donna (Ed). He will also be greatly missed by his grandchildren Troy (Dani) Robertson, Ryan (Krista) Robertson, Jarrod (Christine) Robertson, Rhonda (Mike) Hunter, Justin (Nashly) Epp and James Epp. A Celebration of Garnet’s life was held at Brockie Donovan Chapel on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. Interment was at the Brandon Cemetery. Donations in memory of Garnet may be made to a charity of choice.

LYTYWN: It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mom, mom-in-law, grandma, sister, sister-in-law and aunt, Hazel Margery Lytywn, on November 9, 2011. Mom was the eldest daughter of Bert and Reba Laminman. She was born May 1, 1927 in Deloraine and grew up in a family of five: Charlie, Bill, Lloyd and Florence. They farmed in the Brock and Regent districts. Growing up mom was said to be her father’s shadow and acquired much of her knowledge of building, fixing, and repairing things from him. In 1958 mom married our dad, Alex Lytywn and lived in Virden for a short time until they returned to our family farm at Regent. Mom loved the farm - everything from milking cows, raising chickens, turkeys and pigs to gathering and selling eggs (The Egg Lady), gardening and painting anything that needed. She could do all of this while waiting for the combine to fill so she could pick up a load of grain in harvest time - her favorite time of year. There were also A LOT of haircuts and perms given in her kitchen. There was never a task mom would not attempt. During the winter mom loved to curl. It has been told to us often, Hazel never worried about her rink winning, the game was only for fun. With some crazy shot making and absurd game plan, they surely had a lot of fun. Mom cherished her friends, neighbors and their families. She was always happiest when she had the kitchen full of neighbors and as many children as she could fit in our house! They were all so very important to her and even in failing health she would ask about her Regent friends. Rest assured, the coffee pot or whatever you wished was always on at “Razzel Dazzel’s” house. Mom will be lovingly remembered by her husband Alex, her daughter Karen and son-in-law Murray Combs and their children Lauren (Hazel’s little girl), Nicolas and Joshua. Her son Dale and daughter-in-law Nikki (Keir) and their children Dyson and Katryna. Her children were her pride and joy - Her love will remain in our hearts forever. Mom will be sadly missed by her sister and best friend Florence Brigden and her husband Gerald and their sons Gord (Robin) and their family and Kevin (Colleen) and their family. Sister-in-law Phyllis Laminman (deceased Nov. 14, 2011) and her family Brenda, Randy, (Jean), Ron (Jen), Bobbi (Rick), and families. Sister-in-law Alice Laminman and her family Linda, Shari (Kelly Lee), Brent (Yolanda) and Darren (Crystal), and families, and Robert (Linda) Laminman and family. Moms nieces and nephews and their families held a very special place in her heart. Mom is also survived by a special cousin Evelyn Pearen and the Kirkwood and Webster families. She will also be missed by Mary Emily Paterson and John Smith who were like family to her. Mom was predeceased by her parents Bert and Reba Laminman, her in-laws John and Gunvor Lytywn and her much loved brothers Charlie, Bill and Lloyd. Mom loved her family, friends and neighbors. She always had a joke or story to tell, a prank to pull, a twinkle in her eye and that wonderful smile we will never forget! She loved life and all it had to offer! A celebration of mom’s life was held at the Deloraine United Church on November 14, 2011. Interment at the Deloraine Cemetery. Her precious nephews and great-nephews acted as pallbearers. Her nephew Gord Brigden gave a very fitting tribute to mom. Arrangements were made by Wheatland Funeral Services. Donations in memory of Hazel may be made to the Parkinson’s Society or own choice.

FORMAN: After a brief illness and with family by his side, Barry William Forman passed away peacefully at his home in Victoria, BC on November 17, 2011. His calm and courageous acceptance of the cancer that so quickly overtook his body made his last weeks a memorable time of family togetherness; sharing stories, tears, joys, and above all, love. He left us in peace. Barry was born on July 30, 1943, the only son of Lorne and Minnie Forman and was raised in Rivers, MB with his sisters Nanette, Lorna, Judy and Denyse. On June 20, 1964 he married Bette Anderson and together they raised three gifted children, Kent (b.1965), Shauna (b.1968), and Jason (b.1971). Barry and Bette also lovingly accepted the responsibility of raising Bette’s two younger sisters, Vicki and Suzan, who lived with them at their home in Rivers from 1966 until their high school graduations. Barry attended Rivers Collegiate and obtained a B. Science and B. Education from Brandon University while moonlighting on the CKX noon TV show with the band, The Country Gentlemen, and later, The Western Union. He entered the field of education as a science teacher with the Rolling River School Division at Rivers Collegiate, and soon became the division’s Science Coordinator. Music played a large role in Barry’s life. He was a skilled fiddler, bass guitarist and accordion player: a sought-after performer and recording artist who toured frequently with son Kent as a fiddling duo. Kent was, for a time, a professional violinist and Barry’s daughter, Shauna, thrives at song writing and mentoring young musical talent. Forman Motors (“Not that far from you”) was launched in 1973. Barry worked tirelessly for his fledgling business, which would eventually grow to include Forman Ford in Dauphin (1983) and Northland Ford in The Pas (1993). Barry’s passion for aviation led to his acquiring his Pilot License and first private airplane in 1976. Ever the educator, he passed on his love of flying to his youngest son, Jason, now a Senior Captain with Cathay Pacific Airways in Hong Kong, and his love of business to his oldest son Kent, owner of Forman Honda and Forman Mazda in Brandon, MB. In 2009, Barry retired from business and relocated to Victoria, B.C. Barry was predeceased by his father Lorne (1978), his mother Minnie (1991), and sister-in-law Vicki Broughton (2005). Left to mourn this great loss are his former wife Bette Anderson of Victoria with whom he had reunited, son Kent (Naomi) and their daughters Ava and Anne of Brandon, daughter Shauna and her son Joshua Graham of Calgary and son Jason of Hong Kong. He will also be sadly missed by his four sisters: sister Nanette of Victoria and her children Maureen Landa-McGavin (Doug) and Ryan Landa (Valerie), sister Lorna Short (Gerry) of Rapid City, sister Judith of Victoria and her daughter Sarah Svensson, and sister Denyse of Virden and her daughter Alexandra. He also leaves to mourn Suzan Ramsey (Don) and their daughter Lexa, nieces Brodie Anderson (Brock) and Jena Banville (Bert), step-daughters Marcia Kyle and Gennyne McCune and their mother Lesley, four great-nephews, many cousins and extended family. A memorial service to celebrate Barry’s life will be held at Central United Church, 327-8th Street, in Brandon, MB on Monday, November 28, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. In memory of Barry, please tell your loved ones over the age of 50 that a routine bi-annual colonoscopy saves lives. It would have saved his.

ADAMSKI: On November 12, 2011, Ramona Caye Adamski peacefully passed away and ended her hard fought battle with Cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Mom was born on July 26, 1928 in MacGregor, Manitoba to Gordon and Marjorie Atkins. The Atkins family relocated to Carberry, Manitoba early in Mom's life. Even from a tender age, Mom was a hard worker, delivering milk from a hand pulled wagon to help support the family through the difficult depression years. As a young teenage girl, Mom left the nest and moved to McCreary and was employed as a live in Nanny to a set of young twins. Time passed and at the age of 15, Mom was ready to venture out once again and she moved to the big city of Brandon, MB and soon found work at the Brandon Mental Health Centre in the kitchens. While working at BMHC, Mom recognized her true calling and successfully completed the set of Psychiatric Nurses courses and began working in the wards with the patients. It was during this time, while she was living in the Nurses residence, that she met and fell in love with her lifelong partner, Tom. Their courtship involved skating at the hospital rink, dances at the Palladium and the Esquire, and fishing (Mom would always catch more fish despite only using a willow stick outfitted with some fishing line)! Mom and Dad made it official and tied the knot on October 1, 1949 at St. Hedwig's Church in Brandon. Soon after they welcomed their first child, Marjorie and then their only son, Tom. While raising two toddlers, Mom and Dad also raised the roof and built the one and only family home. Mom was always so proud of the home they built together which was always full of friends, good food and fun. Later in life, Mom and Dad brought home their last child, Julie. Mom's first passion was her family. She had endless patience for her children - always letting us be involved in whatever she was doing, even if that meant it took her ten times longer to complete her task. Family time was spent going to the Drive-In in our pj's, taking Sunday drives after Church, spending time on the Kaminski farm in Dauphin or just staying home with the extensive Adamski clan. Her second love was her garden, which encompassed the entire yard. Mom always knew we could never eat everything she planted but that was not a concern because she always made sure to pass on fresh veggies to those who did not have them.As much as Mom loved her home, she also loved to travel. There was many a family trip to Hawaii or Disney or a road trip in the station wagon with Mom making sandwiches and handing out cookies from the cargo area.Mom eventually retired from BMHC after a total of 47 years of service, but retirement never slowed her down. She continued to live life to the fullest chasing after her youngest grandchildren well into her late seventies. Mom you gave the warmest hugs and the softest kisses and we miss you dearly.Mom is survived by her husband, of 62 years, Tom, daughter Marjorie (Leo) Bojarski, son Tom (Louise) and youngest daughter, Julie (Darren) Hughes. Grandchildren, Dennis Bojarski, Paula (Clayton) Canart, Aiden and Noah Hughes. Her brothers Jim, Melvin, Morris and sister, Emily Coutu. She was predeceased by her parents, Gordon and Marjorie Atkins, sister Sylvia Espey and father and mother-in-law, Peter and Rose Adamski. Mass of Christian Burial was held on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at St. Augustine’s Roman Catholic Church with Fr. Dominic Yuen as Celebrant. Pallbearers were Michael Adamski, Mark Adamski, Dennis Bojarski, Darren Hughes, Clayton Canart and Aiden Hughes. Interment has taken place at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. Donations in memory of Mom may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, 4B-457-9th Street, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 1K2.
