SMART: Dorothy Winnifred Smart was born April 10th, 1928 in Arden, Manitoba. She was the fifth child of nine born to William and Florence Smart. In 1947, she married Dave Smart, which then sealed the deal. It made her "Smart" for life. The joys of being a CPR wife meant packing and unpacking ten times in four years, before settling in Treherne. In 1955, they moved to Chater where they raised their family and lived for many years. Mom was the ultimate housewife. No running water, or few modern conveniences, but she never complained and always took the best care of her family. It was there that she learned to drive a car. In the pastures of Reed’s farm, with the kids in the back seat, mom taught herself to drive a standard, and the kids were so disappointed when Mrs. Angus told her not to start driving in third gear, which ruined all the fun. In 1971, they moved to Brandon. Mom worked as a nursing assistant at BMHC for 17 years. She will always be remembered for the kindness she showed to the residents in her care. Many times she would arrive at the family cabin with a van full of residents to treat them to a fun day out. She was a lover of travel, and was able to see many parts of the world; Africa, Great Britain, Alaska, Hawaii, and many Norm Olfrey bus trips with the girls to the US. She loved to sing in the choir, and was always the first one on the dance floor when the music started. Her clogging group won first prize at the Calgary Stampede in the talent show. We will always remember her Sunday dinners, when she could never have enough company around the dining room table. Mom and Dad moved into Lions Manor in 1999, which was her first brand-new home! Dorothy is survived by: her son, Danny (Andrea), daughters Bev (Gary) and Valerie (Dave), daughter- in-law Lorna (Murray); her grandchildren Vic (Shawna), Tanya (Sean), Heidi, Drew, Jonathan, Daniel (Shelly), Jessica, Carlie, Lindsay, Taylor, Tatianna, and David; great grandchildren Brooklyn, Taylor, Rowan, Annika, and Nicholas; her sisters Betty, Vera, and Audrey, brothers Donnie and Barry. She was predeceased by her husband Dave in 2001, son David in 1971, and son-in-law Greg in 2006; sisters Jean, Muriel, and brother Alan. We wish to thank Hillcrest for their kindness and care during her time there. A time of visitation and viewing will take place at Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, on Friday, September 16, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. A Funeral Service will take place at Central United Church, 327 – 8th Street, Brandon, on Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. with Rev.

When I come to the end of the roadAnd the sun has set for meI want no rites in a gloom filled roomWhy cry for a soul set freeMiss me a little - but not too longAnd not with your head bowed lowRemember the love that we once sharedMiss me - but let me goFor this is a journey that we must all takeAnd each must go aloneIt's all a part of the Master's planA step on the road to homeWhen you are lonely, and sick of heartGo to the friends we knowAnd bury your sorrows in doing good deedsMiss me - but let me go

WARK: Angelique Beatrice Wark, (nee Montroy), 92 years, of Val Marie, Saskatchewan and formerly of Minto, Manitoba, passed away on Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2011, at the Shaunavon Hospital and Care Centre at Shaunavon, Saskatchewan. Beatrice was born at Neelin, Manitoba on September 24, 1918 to Ramsay and Lily Montroy, the second youngest of 6 children. She enjoyed playing music with her brothers and sisters, playing the guitar and chording on the organ. Mom loved the old cowboy songs – Wilf Carter being her favourite. She received her education at Connaught School, walking 3 miles to light the fires each morning. She worked for various families in the Neelin area, helping with housework and chores “At home, I was the chore girl, milking 9 cows, but I liked working outside.” In 1940, Beatrice came to Minto to work for the Fred Wark family, where she met Jim. They were married on Feb. 5, 1941. They lived and farmed 2 miles south of Minto until moving to town in 1961. The farm was where Beatrice was most happy. “Hard work never hurt anybody,” she would say. She always grew a large garden, and enjoyed baking bread, buns, and biscuits, much of which she gave away. After dad passed away, mom moved out West to Val Marie in 1991 to be closer to her family, enjoying the view from her suite where she could see the deer and horses grazing the hayfield. Mom always walked at a brisk pace. Mom had a keen interest in sports, watching TSN, even the Golf channel. She kept up with world news and weather, watching news from Toronto to Victoria, enjoyed Wheel of Fortune, doing word searches and Jumble word puzzles. There wasn’t anything more important to Mom than her family. They always came first. Her children and grandchildren were a great source of pride, visits from nieces and nephews and friends from “back home” made her most happy. Anyone coming to visit usually never left empty-handed or hungry. Garry and Jim took Mom and Dad to see the mountains, B.C., and even Las Vegas. She walked the golf course with Cal and even drove his golf cart. She took a bus trip to Nashville to the Grand Ole Opry which was a highlight for her. She kept a souvenir from everywhere – notepads from motels, placemats, Keno pencils... Mom was a kind and gentle soul who always thought of others first, never complained or wanted anything for herself. Mom was always thankful for any kindness shown to her. “Don’t forget your manners,” she would say. “Share what you have, and help others. You can never do too much. You might need help someday yourself.” Mom was predeceased by her father Ramsay in 1956, mother Lily in 1971, two sisters, Evelyn Stephens in 1945, Gertie McKay in 2008, three brothers, Emil in 1944, Fred in 1973, and Oliver in 1990, husband Jim on February 24th, 1981, son Garry on May 21, 2009, and daughter-in-law Beatrice on Aug. 8, 2003. She is survived by son Calvin (Evelyn) of Esterhazy, grandson Barry (Tricia) of Collingwood, Ontario and great-grandchildren Brianna, Harrison, and Alexander; son Jim of Strathmore, AB, grandchildren Russell Primrose (Monica) of Coleman, AB, Faith Schadlich (David) of Rockyford, AB and David Primrose of Strathmore, AB and their families; daughter-in-law Noreen Wark of Strathmore, AB, grand daughter Sue Ann Wark (Mike Reagan) of Strathmore, AB, great-grandchildren Jordan and Matthew, granddaughter Sherri de Pencier (Kevin) of Red Deer, AB, great-grandchildren Samuel and Dylan; daughter Angela Glas (Richard) of Val Marie, granddaughter Jennifer (Kevin Holmberg), of Maple Creek, SK, grandsons Daniel Glas, and Clinton Glas of Val Marie, and Jared Glas of Medicine Hat, AB; as well as by numerous nieces and nephews.

GOODEN: George Kent Gooden, B.A., L.L.D. February 11, 1921 – September 8, 2011. It is with great sadness we announce the passing of George Kent Gooden on September 8, 2011 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. George was predeceased by his father William Ebenezer Gooden, his mother Inez Louise Gooden (Kent), and his sister Peggy (Brown). Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 66 years Evelyn Mary (nee Watson), his sister Beth Blore (George), his three children Richard Kent (Karen), Jill Vogan (Eric), William Jay, and his six grandchildren Kim Halhead (Brad) and Kurt Gooden, Jane and John Vogan, and Eric (Fernando Vargas) and Geoffrey Gooden. George was born and raised in Brandon, attending Central School, Brandon Collegiate, and Brandon University. After an early start in the family men’s wear and tailoring business, George married his high school sweetheart Mary in1945. Married life led to family life with the birth of Kent, Jill, and Bill between 1948 and 1953. Having established his business life and family, George then took the unusual step at that time and returned to university. He graduated in 1964 with a B.A., double major Economics and Psychology. George was a strong believer in the value of education – a value he passed onto his children. George’s interests spread well beyond business and family. He played a leadership role in many community organizations including the Brandon University Foundation, BU Board of Governors and Alumni Association, the Elspeth Reid Family Resource Centre, Many Voices Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Museum, Downtown Brandon Business Improvement Area, 1978/79 Canada Winter Games, lobby effort to secure jet service to Brandon, Brandon General Hospital, YMCA, Kinsmen and K40 Clubs, Brandon Flying Club, St. Paul’s Church, Brandon Trap Shooting Club, Chamber of Commerce, Toastmasters, and various national retail organizations – to name a few. In his early years his spare time was filled with raising homing pigeons (yes, homing pigeons). Family life revolved around boating and the cottage at Clear Lake, hunting, golfing, alpine and cross country skiing, tennis, gardening, traveling, and picnics with his wife Mary. George proved to be an astute business man. Inspired by his children’s love of skiing, he moved beyond men’s wear to establish Gooden’s Ski Shop in 1967. Ski enthusiasts in western Manitoba no longer had to travel to Winnipeg for top of the line ski gear. And again in 1975, spurred on by his wife Mary’s love of art, he supported her in the founding of the Staircase Canadiana Art Gallery. Gooden’s was a permanent fixture on Brandon’s main street Rosser Ave. for 97 years – from 1892 when the business was founded by George’s grandfather (William Samuel Gooden) to 1989 when George retired. Even while retired, George traveled to western Manitoba communities assisting small businesses for the Federal Business Development Bank. In 1993, Brandon University recognized George’s contributions to the community and bestowed upon him an honorary Doctor of Laws. He and his wife were again recognized by BU in 2004, with the naming of the George and Mary Gooden Gallery of Art in the Health Studies complex at BU. Living to over 90, George was sharp and a great story teller to the end. Always a gentleman, generous and giving, he lived a full and content life. He was particularly proud of his six grandchildren, who gave him special pleasure. His family loves him and will cherish his memory always. Special thanks to George’s doctors and the kind staff at Brandon Regional Health Centre. A Funeral Service will be held at Central United Church, 327-8th Street, on Thursday, September 15, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Shannon McCarthy officiating. Interment will follow at Brandon Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Brandon University Foundation, 270-18th Street, Brandon, MB R7A 6A9 or to the Elspeth Reid Family Resource Centre, c/o Child and Family Services of Western Manitoba Foundation Inc., 255-9th Avenue, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 6X1.
