EDWARDS: Marion Eva Edwards, beloved mom of Maureen Miller and David Edwards, passed away peacefully at her residence, Hillcrest Place, on Wednesday, July 20, 2011 at the age of 86 years. Marion (née Watson) Edwards spent her final days at Hillcrest Place, on the second floor. Unfortunately, her health had declined by the time of her arrival and she was unable to fully integrate into the activities there. She was born in Heathfield, Sussex, England on September 2, 1924. She was the second eldest of four sisters (Margaret, Gwen, and Freda) and she also had an older step sister (Molly). She spent much of her young life in Streatham Common, a suburb of London. Her formal education ended in 1940, due to the heavy bombing London was experiencing. She was offered and accepted a position with the London Power Company, which was considered an essential service. Two years later, she was conscripted into the Ministry of Information, where she worked with the censors in the Photography Department. She took a volunteer position with the Canadian Soldiers Club, off Trafalgar Square, where she met her future husband Phil, a Saskatchewan farm boy, serving with the Canadian Headquarters (CMHQ) in London. They were married in March 1946, just before he was returned to Canada. She was shipped to Canada, with a large number of war brides, in September. They settled in Reston, MB, where they welcomed Maureen in 1949. In 1951, they moved to a small home on 27th Street in Brandon. Marion and Maureen travelled to England in 1954, where Marion saw her parents for the last time. A son, David arrived in 1956. Marion worked part time at the Wheat City Arena on 10th Street and Victoria Avenue, from 1953 to 1964; doing bookkeeping and handling ticket sales, especially for the Wheat Kings. In 1966, Marion became a secretary at Brandon University in the Faculty of Education. There she acted as an unofficial guidance councellor, where she helped many future teachers solve problems with their programs. She retired from the University in 1985. Marion was an active member of the Canadian Order of Foresters, and was a key member of the War Brides Association that was organized in southwest Manitoba. She deeply regretted that the War Brides eventually disbanded as age overcame the ladies. Marion maintained close relations with her sisters and managed about a dozen trips back to Britain. Her company was much loved by her sisters and their children. She also became a traveller to other locales after her retirement, including trips to Hawaii and the continental United States. Marion is survived by her daughter, Maureen Miller of Brandon and son, David of Calgary. Maureen has three daughters, Jodi (Jeff) Hrymak of Minnedosa, Jenifer McClure of Brandon, and Jillian (Jason) Lawrence of Douglas. David has a son, Geoffrey and a daughter Megan, both of whom live in Calgary. Marion had seven great grandchildren, Emma and Bria (Jodi), Tyson, Abby and Kate (Jenifer) and Tucker and Tristan (Jillian). Marion was predeceased by her husband, Phil in June of 2001. A Celebration of Marion’s life was held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, on Monday, July 25, 2011 with Mr. Lawrence McInnes officiating. A private family interment took place at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. The family would especially like to thank the second floor nurses at Hillcrest Place for their outstanding care. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Marion may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 415-1st Street, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 2W8.

KOKONAS: Mario John Kokonas, beloved husband of Fotina and dear father of John and Agelo, died peacefully with family by his side on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 at the Assiniboine Centre, at the age of 67 years. Mario moved to Canada in 1958 at the age of 15 to reside in Saskatoon with his brother, Spero, and father, John. His father went back to Greece and his brother, Albert, came shortly thereafter. They helped each other adapt to our beautiful country of Canada, a land filled with opportunity for those willing to work hard and make sacrifices for a better life. In this regard, all three brothers flourished. With the marriage to his wonderful wife, Fotina, on November 4th, 1971, and the birth of his sons, John and Agelo in 1974 and 1976 respectfully, he was finally complemented and the origins of his legacy of family business were on the horizon. After several smaller ventures in the restaurant and service industry, Mario matured into the Brandonite and restaurateur we all knew and loved. Mario was never formally educated, although, he learned through the school of life, graduated with honours, and truly became a professor to many. Mario lived in many towns and worked various jobs to realize his dream of self-employment. He was known in the community for the Voyageur restaurant in Minnedosa in the early 70's with his brothers, Albert and Spero. He then became involved with Kokonas Restaurant in Brandon in 1974, which he started with his brother, Albert. He finally realized his true calling with pizza in 1981 with Romana Pizza, his own business, and the rest is history. After his first attempt at retirement in 2000, Mario embarked on his last venture; a retirement project with his family called Marino's Pizza. For those who don't know, Marino is Greek for Mario, and we all spent his last handful of years there together in his home, not his workplace. Mario was a simple, modest, hard working man, who participated in life unconventionally to successfully have a hobby for his job. When he wasn't working at his hobby, he enjoyed his apple trees, day trips to Clear Lake and the outdoors in general. Mario is survived by: his wife Fotina, sons John and Agelo, his mother Chrisoula in Greece, his sister Marina in Greece, his sister Matoula (Nick) in Chicago, his brother Spero (Sophia) in Toronto, his brother Albert (Violeta) in Brandon, his brother-in-law Bill Galanis, his brother and sister-in-law Peter and Toula in Greece, and a plethora of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family that are typical to a Greek family. This includes all the people we were lucky enough to interact with throughout his time on earth. Our employees were our family, and our customers were our relatives. He was predeceased by: his father John from Greece, his brother-in-law Manoli from Greece, his father and mother-in-law Agelo and Eleni from Greece. Thank you to all the people who helped Mario and our family over the years in and out of the restaurants. Thank you to all the good staff at the hospital who helped us through our many days there. Thank you also to Dr. Egan and the Issigonis family for going above and beyond to extend his time on earth. Thank you to everyone we interacted with and participated with over the years that allowed us to be part of our community of Brandon. Thank you to all for the prayers and well wishes for Mario – we hope that life will reciprocate those thoughts and feelings to all of you and your families in this lifetime. Prayers were held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, on Friday, July 22, 2011. The Funeral Service took place at the Brockie Donovan Chapel on Saturday, July 23, 2011 with Fr. Spiridon Vandoros officiating. Interment followed at the Brandon Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Mario may be made to a charity of choice.
