GIESBRECHT: Peter George Giesbrecht of the Brandon University IT Department passed away on Saturday, March 12, 2011, in his 53rd year. He is survived by his wife Kathryn Giesbrecht (nee Walker); daughter Marina Hannappel; parents George and Eva Giesbrecht of Portage la Prairie; sister Irene Overton (Marc Price) of Winnipeg; brother David Giesbrecht (Crystal Hanson) of Nanaimo, B.C.; and nephew Chris Overton of Winnipeg. He was predeceased by an infant sister. Peter spent his formative years in Austin and High Bluff, Manitoba and graduated from Arthur Meighen School in Portage la Prairie. Following summer and part-time jobs with Campbell's Soup and McPhillips Cable during high school, Peter entered Brandon University, where he planned to become a teacher. Instead, he discovered his passion for computers and found his career in the university's IT Department. There he endeared himself to students, staff and faculty with his patience, guidance and humour. As he generously shared his expertise and rose to the position of Coordinator, User Services, Peter became, informally, the teacher he had set out to be. Peter also served his Brandon University colleagues as union steward and, ultimately, MGEU Local 135 President, a role in which he gained respect as a fair, professional and competent leader. Peter attained his greatest happiness, however, when he found his soul-mate in Kathryn, whom he married in April, 2006. This marriage gave him the added joy of a daughter, Marina. Although their time together was far too brief, his brightest legacy lies in his having shared with them that same patience, guidance and humour for which he is so well-known, as well as great love and deep affection. The family wishes to acknowledge the exceptional care that Peter received from the staff at the Brandon Regional Health Centre and the generous support provided by the staff of Brandon University at this difficult time. The Ceremony to Celebrate Peter's Life will be held at Central United Church, 327 - 8th Street, Brandon, on Friday March 18, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. The Reverend Dr. Peter Hordern will officiate. In lieu of flowers, friends who wish to do so are invited to make a donation in Peter's memory to the Brandon University Student Union Food Bank, 270 - 18th Street, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 6A9.

TURTON: Peacefully on Thursday, March 10, 2011 at Dinsdale Personal Care Home, Cliff Turton passed away at the age of 90 years. He is survived by his daughter Heather; son-in-law Dean and grandsons: Jeffery and Derek Dickson and Jessie Turton. Cliff was predeceased by his daughter Lynn Turton; his parents William and Matilda; siblings Gertrude, Hazel, John, Doris, Victor, Lawrence and Wilf. Cliff was born on February 5, 1921 in Saskatchewan and moved to the Sinclair District of Manitoba in 1927. He spent the next several years working on the farm and eventually moved with his family to Rapid City in 1937. The call to war saw Cliff enlist in 1942 and after basic training, he headed overseas in 1943, first to England followed by action in France, Holland, Belgium, and Germany. Upon his return in 1945, and discharge from the army in 1946, he returned to Clear Lake where he worked for several years before moving to Brandon in 1952. Employed by Cook's Roofing and Insulation, Cliff learned the necessary tools of the trade which ultimately lead to the formation of Turton Shingling and Siding, a business which he operated until his retirement in 1985. In 1958, he married Jessie Evans and from this union they had two daughters, Lynn and Heather. His family enjoyed his passion for camping which led to many trips within Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the United States, highlighted by longer trips to both California and Florida. In winter, Cliff could be found playing or skipping on many different curling teams. The highlight of his curling career was the rare feat of scoring an eight ender and becoming a member of this exclusive club.

WATKINS: It is with great sadness the family of Eva Mae Watkins (nee Teed) announces the passing of our dear “Gam” on March 4, 2011 at the Minnedosa Hospital with her family by her side at the age of seventy-one. Eva (now affectionately called “Gam”) was born February 20, 1940, at Lower Onslow, Nova Scotia. She was a graduate of Central Colchester High School in 1958 and Nova Scotia Normal College in 1959. Eva spent the next several years teaching in Nova Scotia and Ontario. Eva was united in marriage to Gerald of Summerford, Newfoundland at Lower Onslow United Church, Nova Scotia on July 27, 1963. After living in Ontario for a number of years, they moved to The Pas, Manitoba in 1973. When Gerald retired in 1995 and Deborah’s children were older they decided to move to Newdale, Manitoba in 2002 to be closer to their younger grandchildren in Newdale and Brandon. Eva leaves behind her husband, Gerald and three daughters: Deborah Calvert (Ricky) in The Pas, Manitoba, granddaughter Kaila (Winnipeg, Manitoba) and grandson Andrew (Pincourt, Quebec), Cindy Dalke (Shannon), granddaughter Melanie and grandson Tyler in Newdale, Manitoba and Joanne Watkins (Mike Brown) and grandsons Keegan and Steven in Brandon, Manitoba. Eva also leaves behind a stepson, Danny Keats (Joy) in St. Anthony, Newfoundland, granddaughter Kristie Hurley (Cory), great granddaughters Danielle and Lauren in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and grandson Kenneth Keats (Nadine) and great grandson Lucas in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Mourning Eva’s passing are sisters Barbara Clarke, Truro, Nova Scotia, Jennie Marshall, Edmonton, Alberta and brother Douglas (Marie) Teed, Peterborough, Ontario and numerous nieces, nephews, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law. Eva was predeceased by her parents, Lucy and Willard Teed and brother-in-law, Darrell Clarke. To say that Eva (Gam) had health concerns would be an understatement. Gam developed rheumatoid arthritis in her mid forties that forced her to stop playing baseball which she thoroughly enjoyed. Her arthritis was quite severe and prevented her from doing many of the things she loved – her music being one of the things she missed the most. Gam loved her music and played the harmonica, juice harp and her steel guitar when she was able to. But although she couldn’t play anything herself anymore you would frequently walk in to find her listening to her many types of music. She would spend hours in her “studio” making tapes for her and Pa to listen to. A treasured memory for Gam and her girls was when they all went on a “girls night out” to the Johnny Reid concert together in October. Gam had a love of knowledge as well and would spend hours working on things for her children, grandchildren and their friends. Gam’s used her teaching background to the fullest by tutoring many children throughout the years. Gam’s children, grandchildren and many others benefited from her patience and her love for teaching. Gam’s greatest love was her husband of forty-seven years, her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and family which she treasured. She would have gone through anything to be blessed with more time to share with them. Everyone who knew Gam recognized her amazing will to live. Even when confronted with cancer for the third time and was asked about chemotherapy her answer was…”Yes, when can I start?” Gam’s first challenge with cancer was in 1997 and since that time our family has “cherished” each and every time that we could be together as a family! Eva (Gam) was a loving and caring person and would do anything for anyone! She and her smile will be dearly missed by many. The family sends a very special thanks to all the Home Care Staff for their care and support shown to Gam and the family over the years. We also send special thanks to all the staff at the Minnedosa Hospital for their care and compassion. We would like to express our gratitude to the Minnedosa Funeral Service for helping us through this difficult time. A funeral service was held on March 9th, 2011 at the Newdale United Church with Tim Crouch officiating.
God saw you getting tired, when a cure was not to be. He put his arms around you and whispered “Come to Me”. So when we saw you sleeping, so peacefully, free from pain, we could not wish you back to suffer that again. So keep your arms around her Lord. And give her special care. Make up for all she suffered and all that seemed unfair.
If friends so wish, donations may be made to The Canadian Cancer Society, The Arthritis Society or the Newdale United Church. Minnedosa Funeral Service in care of arrangements. (204) 867-3868.
