McMILLAN: Russell Stewart McMillan went to be with the Lord on Thursday, December 16, 2010 after a brief battle with pneumonia. He was 87, survived a number of strokes over the years and, sadly, was developing Alzheimer’s. Born to John and Eva McMillan on January 11, 1923, he grew up in Griswold, Manitoba, Canada. He was one of ten brothers and sisters, two of which survive him (Crawford and Yvonne). Russ is also survived by his ex-wife Barbara, son Richard and his wife Grace, and their three children; Kimberly, Russell and Katherine. Russ is also survived by his son Donald and daughter Linda and her children, Marshall and Kendall. Russ attended elementary and high school in Griswold, Manitoba. He was proud to have served in the Royal Canadian Air Force (R.C.A.F) during WWII. After the war, he attended the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg and the University of Toronto, where he graduated with a degree in dentistry (D.D.S.). He started a dental practice in Barry’s Bay, Ontario, where he married Barbara, who also graduated from the University of Toronto (as a dental nurse). Russ returned to school at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan where he graduated with both a Masters Degree and a Doctorate in Public Health. At the University of Alabama, he helped found the Department of Epidemiology at the medical school. In California he conducted air pollution research at the University of Southern California Medical School in Los Angeles. Russ was listed in the American Men of Science in 1966. He moved to Manitoba in 1968, to Gimli in 1993, and eventually retired there. Russ was an active member of the Unitarian Churches in both Gimli and Arborg and was a licensed chaplain in the Province of Manitoba. He spent many hours working on the restoration of the Gimli Unitarian Church. After a number of health issues, Russ moved into Betel Home on April 30, 2001 in Gimli. He and good friend Alex spent many summer outings going for ice cream and enjoying downtown Gimli, the people, and the views of Lake Winnipeg. He also enjoyed visits from his kids, relatives and friends. Nephew Dale and his wife Linda spent many summer days at the lake visiting. Russ especially enjoyed the water, which there is plenty of in Lake Winnipeg. He was an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous and helped save many lives both in California and Manitoba. Helping people back to health from alcohol addiction was a big part of his life. In his later years he turned to singing and was quite good at it. Russ is missed very much by his family and friends. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations are made in his name to USC, Alzheimer Disease Research Center. Please contact Elena Taylor at the USC Memory and Aging Center at 323-442-7674 or visit the website at http://adrc.usc.edu/giving/ Alcoholics Anonymous does not accept outside donations.

McBURNEY: With great sadness, we announce the passing of Shirley Annabelle McBurney, in the early morning hours of December 25, 2010. She will be greatly missed by her children, Sharon (Paul) Wedderburn, Doug (Russella) McBurney, and Carla (Ed) Rempel; by her grandchildren Donald (Shelley) Wedderburn, Shawn Wedderburn, Amber (Jamie) McBurney-Vann, Katelyn Rempel (Michael Howe), and Mitchell Rempel (Chelsea Wellborn); and her great grandchildren, Katie and Travis Wedderburn. Mom also leaves behind her sisters, Jean (Cliff) Dwinnell and Myra (Bud) Briggs; her sisters-in-law, Betty Saunderson, Jean McBurney and Bev Mitchell and brother-in-law Terry McBurney; and numerous relatives and friends. Mom was predeceased by her husband, Donald (1971); her brothers Wesley (1944) and Murray (1992); her grandson, Matthew (1993); and her husband, Jim (2004). Mom was born March 11, 1925 to Frances and Redge Mitchell at her Uncle Johnny and Aunt Bessie’s home in the District of Melgund, Manitoba. Mom grew up on the family farm in the same District, acquiring her elementary education at the country schoolhouse across the road. Mom then moved to Hartney to attend high school. After leaving high school, Mom worked as the bookkeeper for the Hartney Co-Op for a while before marrying our father in 1946. Mom and Dad enjoyed life in Sanford, Osborne and Gordon Siding as Dad was transferred about with Manitoba Pool Elevators. It was during this time that Mom and Dad started their family and by 1952, Mom, Dad, Sharon and Doug moved back to Hartney as Dad had purchased the McBurney family farm. Mom and Dad farmed the family homestead until 1966 when they sold and moved the family, which now included Carla, to Minnedosa where Dad managed the U.G.G. Elevator. After Dad’s sudden passing in 1971, Mom moved to Brandon. In 1987, Mom married ‘Jimmy’ Morden and they enjoyed their retirement years spending time with family and friends, traveling around Manitoba and to other points within Canada and the States. We will remember our Mom as a gentle and generous lady, who had a quick and warm smile. Mom loved and loved being with her family. She was immensely proud of her children, her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. Her favorite times were when she was surrounded by family and friends, and could often be found in the midst of some good-natured teasing. We want to thank the staff at Hillcrest in Brandon for the years of care and attention they provided to our Mother. A service will be held at the Kowalchuk Funeral Chapel in Souris on Wednesday, December 29 at 1:00 pm with internment in the Hartney Cemetery to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook St. Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 2B7.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Cindy Falloon of Russell, Manitoba who passed away December 15, 2010 at the Russell District Health Centre at the age of 45 years. Cindy was born in Birtle, Manitoba on April 3, 1965 and grew up with sister Lorrie in Solsgirth, Manitoba. Cindy loved to sew, read, figure skate, and play sports, especially volleyball. She graduated in 1983 with the highest mark in her class from Birtle Collegiate. After graduation, Cindy worked in Winnipeg for a time but soon moved back home and married sweetheart Neil in 1984. Their son Kevin arrived in 1988 and five years later Derek was born. Cindy and Neil and their family enjoyed camping, fishing, and more exotic vacations to Hawaii, Jamaica, Cuba, and the Dominican. Cindy loved to bake and the boys always enjoyed cookies, muffins, pumpkin pies, homemade buns, candy apples, and specially decorated birthday cakes. Christmas time was filled with lots of love, family time, overflowing stockings, handmade pjs, and tons of presents. Cindy loved her job at Paragon Sales where she worked for almost 20 years as an accountant, but even more than that she loved to watch her boys play hockey and spent countless hours at the rink. In the rink and out of the rink Cindy was always very proud of her boys. When Cindy found out she had cancer in November 2008 she was filled with determination and hope of beating it. At that time she was told that she might not see her oldest son Kevin’s wedding in June 2009 but with her strength and determination she surpassed all the doctors’ expectations and lived two more years seeing many hockey games, going on Cuba, Chilliwack, and Seattle vacations with husband Neil, and continued to enjoy her everyday loved activities. Cindy’s energetic attitude, above average organizational skills, thoughtfulness, and love of life will be greatly missed by her family and friends. She was predeceased by her grandparents. She is survived by her husband Neil, sons Derek and Kevin and daughter-in-law Kayla, parents Silvian and Lillian Ostash, parents-in-law Don and Dianne Falloon, sister Lorrie Huberdeau, brothers-in-law Bill and Heath, sisters-in-law Lori and Kelly, and nieces and nephews Danielle, Jack, Mary, and Grant.

DRYDEN: It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father and grandfather, Richard Douglas Dryden, on December 29, 2010, at the age of 89. Richard (Dick) was born April 4, 1921, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the son of John Cameron Dryden and Luella (Kemp) Dryden. He was raised on the family farm near Ste. Agathe and attended school in Avonlea, Ste. Agathe and Winnipeg. He studied agriculture at the University of Manitoba, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 1950 and Master of Science in 1960.Richard served with the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II as a radar mechanic. From April 1941 to October 1945, he served in Canada, Britain, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and India and was discharged with the rank of sergeant. In 1949, he married Kathleen Marion Connolly of Winnipeg. They operated the Dryden family farm until 1956 when Richard took a position as an agronomist at the Agriculture Canada Research Centre in Brandon, doing weed control research. He and Kathleen moved their young family to Brandon and bought a new home on First Street where they resided from 1959 to 2006. At the age of 53, Richard accepted a position with Canadian International Development Agency. He and Kathleen moved to Hyderabad, India, where he served as Advisor, Dryland Crops, with a joint Canada-India agricultural project from 1974 to 1977. A further two years, 1978-80, were spent serving a similar project in Sri Lanka after which they returned to Canada to enjoy their family, retiring in 1985. Through the years, Richard’s strong desire to serve others led him to get actively involved in his church and community, doing whatever he could to help many organizations and charities. In 1962, he was involved in the establishment of Trinity United Church, and acted as secretary of the Official Board during the new congregation’s searches for property on which to build the church and a minister to serve the people. He continued to serve actively in the church throughout his life and at the time of his passing was a trustee of the church. He was also actively involved over the years with the Royal Canadian Legion (both Brandon and Domain branches), Wheat City Masonic Lodge, Brandon Kiwanis Club, Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum, and Daly House Museum. As a Kiwanis Club member, he participated in the Terrific Kids Program at New Era School. Each year he also took part in that school’s Remembrance Day services. Richard shared his love of photography and travel by giving slideshows at several personal care homes in the area and also served for many years as a volunteer at Rideau Park PCH. He became involved with the Cancer Society as a volunteer driver and support worker, giving personal comfort to many patients across Canada. In May 2006, the City of Brandon presented him with a Mayor’s Volunteer Award. All his life, Richard served others quietly, without need or concern for recognition. His family was very proud to have him included amongst those honoured by Mayor Dave Burgess at City Hall. Richard was predeceased by his father John, mother Luella, sister Donna Teillet, sister-in-law Florence Adams, brothers-in-law Ed Teillet, Ken McLeod, Ray Adams, and Bill Moore. Left to mourn his passing are his wife of 61 years, Kathleen, daughter Linda (Al) Friesen of Brandon, daughter Brenda (Howard) Griffith of Winnipeg, son John (Betty) of Shoal Lake, son Ken (Vera) of Salmon Arm, BC, and his 10 grandchildren: Tim, Kathleen and Andrew Friesen, Natalie (Maurice) Hashie and Brian Griffith, Michael and Jennifer Dryden, and Aaron, Joel and David Dryden.
