Bea passed away comfortably in her own home with loved ones by her side as she continued her life’s journey onward. Bea was born in Brandon on May 23, 1931 to parents Dave and Susan Lawson, being but one of eleven children. Bea is survived by many who loved her, friends and family alike who will miss her presence in their lives, especially her wit, stubbornness and loving spirit. Bea was consistently kind and reliable to every person and task she encountered, which showed in her many friendships, her employment at Woolworth’s, to her love for her husband, Murdock. Bea’s last years were a struggle as she battled cancer but nonetheless her gentleness, guidance and insight continually shone through. She will be gravely missed by those who have cared for her these past years, to whom were acknowledged by Bea as family. A special acknowledgement of Thanks on Bea’s behalf to Dr. Moller and the staff at the Cancer Centre for their devoted care and kindness, which shall never be forgotten.

GREEN: Murray Brian Green March 19, 1948 - November 23, 2012. Murray passed away after a 14 month long courageous battle with cancer with loved ones by his side. Murray was born in Kamsack Saskatchewan to Stan and Ann Green. Murray is survived by his wife and childhood sweetheart and soul mate, Judy (Woodward) of 44 years and son Darcy and daughter Jamie. Murray is also survived by his only sister Gloria (Tom) Strilchuk. He was a special “Papa” to Jordan, Justin, James, and Reid Green and will always be remembered by his many nieces and nephews and many friends. Murray was predeceased by his son Kelly Green, parents Stan and Ann Green, and brother Wayne (Carol) Green. Murray attended school in Kamsack. Loved hockey and baseball which he continued to play into his adult years. He started out his working career as a plumbers helper for Kamsack Plumbing and Heating. Murray and Judy were married in 1968 and moved to Yorkton Saskatchewan where he worked as a plumber for ACE Plumbing and Heating. He then spent 6 years at INCO in Thompson Manitoba as a pipefitter. In 1978 Murray and family moved to Brandon Manitoba where he worked at Simplot Canada as a pipefitter for the next 29 years. After his retirement in 2007, Murray and Judy moved back to Kamsack. He soon discovered retirement was not for him and got a job with the Town of Kamsack. True to form, he whistled off to work everyday with a smile on his face and ready to do whatever needed to be done. He was overwhelmed with the acceptance of his fellow town employees at his tender age of 61. He respected everyone he worked with and thought of them like family. He was very disappointed when his health forced him to give up working and never looked at it as retirement but as taking a break. He loved small town life and was happy to reminisce with old friends on the post office step and just chatting with everyone on his route. Murray will be most remembered for his friendly smile and his quick wit and his fast feet on the dance floor. His life was structured with always wanting to win the “big one” with his lottery tickets, and going to get the local newspaper, the mail and the flyers. He always loved his time at Madge Lake enjoying the nature and his long walks and time spent with family and friends. Funeral services will be held at Andrychuk Funeral Home at 11 am on Tuesday November 27, 2012. With Stephen Ruten officiating. With internment at Riverview Cemetery, Kamsack. The Green family then invite to share your memories with them at a time of fellowship and refreshments at the Kamsack Legion Hall.

They moved from the farm to care for her ailing parents, while dad farmed from town. She was employed at the Rendevouz Restaurant and at Deloraine Hospital until age 70. Anna is survived by sister, Eva Christensen, sister-in-laws Joyce Willox and Lillian Willox, children Carole (Ken) Woodcock, Bill (Phyllis), Bob, and Barb (Doug) Kauk.  8 grandchildren (Shelley, Tom, Brett, Brad, Angie, Bryan, Dayna, Devan, Kevin, and Bryan) and 13 great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

Mom was a member of the Deloraine United Church, UCW and taught Sunday School and volunteered at the Thrift Shop/delivered Meals on Wheels for many years. She received her 50 year pin from the Royal Canadian Legion last year. In her earlier years, she was a skilled skater, played women`s hockey, and enjoyed curling. During her later years she did a lot of cooking/baking for her shut in/in hospital friends and delivered it directly to them. She loved her Bingo and trips to Belcourt. In 2008 Mom moved to Odd Fellows Corner, Brandon and gave up her driver`s license at the age of 93. For the past 6 months, she resided at Dinsdale Personal Care Home. The character of our mother was best summed up by her granddaughter, Angie “Grandma was one of the kindest, gentlest, generous, caring and humble people I have ever known”. The most important thing in life to mom was her family and being with family was what she enjoyed the most. Her happiest times were spent at the lake, baking her butter tarts, chocolate chip cookies and apple pies which she shared with everyone. She will be missed. A special thank you to the wonderful staff at Dinsdale PCH, Chaplain Major Sharon McDonough, and Dr. Joanne Maier for being so caring and compassionate. Your support will forever be remembered.
