GIBSON: Donald “Don” John passed away peacefully at Brandon Regional Health Centre on Saturday, February 11, 2012. Don was born on June 24, 1936, at Miami, MB, receiving his education at Pomeroy and Tobacco Creek Schools, and graduating from Miami Collegiate. After serving five years in the RCAF, as an aero-engine technician, he returned to operate the family farm at Rosebank, MB. Don married Elaine Woods in 1963, and they were blessed with two daughters, Heather and Brenda. In 1967, Don and his family moved fromthe farm to Bryd Siding where he was employed by N.M. Paterson. He and Joe Nesbit led the 4-H Pony Club, performing the musical ride on various occasions. Upon a transfer to Emerson, MB, his heart turned back to farming where he worked for Newmans for a short while. In 1974, he purchased a dairy at Scarth, MB. Finding the workload very heavy, he sold the farm in 1980,and moved his family to Brandon where he was employed at the Brandon Research Station for 16 years, making many close friends, with a nick nameof “Gibby”, throwing in the odd fishing trip with them, and attending the annual curling weekend. Upon retirement in 1996, he fulfilled a longtime dream by joining Gagnon Farms custom combining for five months in the US and SK. Unable to return due to bad knees, he drove the combine for Krahn Farms and Leonard Lepp. His love for John Deere equipment continued to be strong and he collected many miniature tractors and combines over the years as well as attending tractor shows and expositions. He attended Ag Days faithfully, and was so excited this year to get there with the help of his respite worker. Don looked forward to the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair, attending the breakfast, the fiddle contest, working at the Seed Show, as well as checking out the heavy horses. In 1990, Don was privileged to attend the 50 years of Flight Training at Portage La Prairie, and reminisce with fellow workers. Don loved the fiddle and Don Messer, and never missing the Miami Fiddle Festival with his close friend, Winston Simpson. He had a good ear for music and judged many a fiddle contest. Many years he enjoyed camping and fishing with his family at William Lake and Rivers, and if there was an Air Show nearby, it was marked on the calendar, a must to go. On his 70th birthday, he threw his own party, and what a party, with old and new friends and relatives, some of which are now gone. In 2007, he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. However, he faithfully joined the boys at McDonald’s for coffee and sometimes birthday cake! He also looked forward to the Research Station Retiree Breakfast each month. His love for the Lord and his strong faith carried him through the tough days and he always had a smile on his face and time to visit with his many friends. He enjoyed his furry companions, Bailey, who passed away in 2010, and his new Lady Lacey, who helped brighten his day and shared his popcorn! He is survived by his wife Elaine, and daughters Heather and Brenda. He is also survived by brothers-in-laws, Barry (Alice), Gren, and Keith, sisters-in-laws, Irene and Pat Gibson, and Lucille Woods, cousins, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Jack and Mary Gibson, brothers Nelson and Ken, father and mother-in-law, Norval and Muriel Woods, brother-in-law Blake Woods, sisters-in-law Joy and Arlene Woods, nieces, Linda Diane Woods, and Nicole Stuart. A celebration of Don's life was held at McDiarmid Drive Alliance Church on Wednesday, February 15, 2012, with Pastor Daryl McAuley officiating. Interment took place at Brandon Cemetery prior to the service. Friends who wish may make a donation in memory of Don to the Parkinson’s Society of Manitoba, 7-414 Westmount Drive, Winnipeg, MB, R2J1P2, or the Canadian Cancer Society, Manitoba Division, 415-1st Street, Brandon, MB, R7A2W8.

EDGAR: Margaret Stevenson Edgar (nee Campbell) passed away suddenly on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 with her family and her minister by her side. Margaret, “Marg” to her friends, was born in Kincardine on Forth, Alloa, Scotland on November 14, 1933, the daughter of Annie and David Campbell. After graduating from Dunfermline High School, Margaret went to Edinburgh to complete her 3 year Teacher Training at Moray House Training College. She also successfully completed all theory and piano examinations for Royal Academy of Music in London, England. Margaret loved teaching children and held five different teaching certificates: Scotland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, New Brunswick and Manitoba. Her first teaching position, which she held for four years, was in Scotland at Clackmannan Primary School. In 1956, she met the love of her life, John Edgar, a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force who was on leave in Scotland from his posting in France. On Mother’s Day, 1958, they returned to Canada and were married on June 28, 1958 in Birtle, Manitoba. The couple were posted to CFB Greenwood in 1959 and Marg taught Grades I and II there until 1964. From 1969-1974, Margaret taught Kindergarten at Harts Corner School in Trenton, Ontario and when the family was posted to New Brunswick in 1974, she taught both Music and Kindergarten at Canadian Forces School (CFS) St. Margaret’s, in Chatham, New Brunswick. During her time here, Margaret was especially proud to earn her four-year Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of New Brunswick. 1980 saw the family posted again, this time to CFB Southport near Portage La Prairie. Marg worked in Portage at the Manitoba Developmental Centre and then out on base teaching Kindergarten. In 1982, the family settled in Brandon and Margaret became a nursery school teacher at the Small World Nursery School, where she stayed until 1990. Brandon University was her last teachingposition; here she taught pre-school children in the Psychology Department. At the same time, she was also a Special Needs Assistant for the Brandon School Division. After retirement, Marg became very busy. She was a member of Heather Club, Crown Jewel Society and Eastern Star - Queen Mary Chapter No.3. Marg was also a devoted member, Elder and Clerk of Session of First Presbyterian Church, Brandon. She took part in nearly all Church activities - from book clubs to Scripture lessons to knitting groups; making prayer shawls for those in need and newborn caps for babies ready to leave hospital. Margaret was most happy when volunteering. She went weekly to places like Fairview Home, Assiniboine Centre and Riverheights Terrace to play piano for the residents, whether for Service or sing-along. Her kitchen always smelled delicious as she cooked up meals and soups to take to Helping Hands. She also found great joy in helping her friends in the Ethiopian community and in helping to keep the Church garden looking beautiful. Margaret enjoyed music, singing, bowling, reading, crosswords, travelling and, mostly, gardening, as could be seen in her backyard. In recent years, she took immense pride in watching the success of her son's band as he sang lead vocals and in travelling to distant places with her daughter. Margaret was predeceased by her loving husband, Mcpl. John Edgar (ret.d), and is survived by her cherished children Michael and Susan. She will be greatly missed by her brother, Robert Campbell and his wife Pearl of Pinehurst, North Carolina and their children Lorna (Mike) Martin and daughter Mia; Fiona; Scott. Also left to mourn are many relatives and friends, both in North America and Scotland. Funeral service was held on Monday, February 20, 2012 at First Presbyterian Church with interment following in the Brandon Cemetery.
