VAN DEVEIRE: Peter Van Deveire was born in Deloraine, Manitoba on May 7, 1956 to Joseph and Marie-Louise Van Deveire. Following a courageous battle with cancer, Peter passed away peacefully at home with his wife and children by his side. Peter grew up on a farm 6 miles east of Deloraine where he lived until he graduated from the Deloraine Collegiate Institute in 1974. After graduation, Peter worked for three years as an orderly at the Miscericordia Hospital in Winnipeg. He then enrolled at the University of Manitoba where he obtained his Bachelor’s in Animal Science and Master’s in Entomology. While involved in his studies, Peter met his future wife Betty Lam. In 1980, Peter was accepted into the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan. In 1981, after living apart for one year, Peter and Betty married in Winnipeg. Peter graduated in 1984 with his DVM and secured employment in Langenburg, SK. That same year, Peter became the proud father of his first child, Marcus. Although Peter enjoyed his work as a large animal practitioner in Langenburg, his devotion to his family brought him back to Manitoba. In 1985, Peter accepted a position with the Brandon Hills Veterinary Clinic and moved to Brandon with his family. Before the year’s end, their second child Katherine had arrived. Peter thoroughly enjoyed his profession as a veterinarian working first as a mixed animal vet, later as a small animal vet, and finally, in 2007, as an inspector for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Peter was his children’s greatest fan. When he wasn’t coaching or umpiring, Peter was always found cheering for his children in the stands as he never missed an opportunity to watch them skate the length of the ice or run the bases. Even while battling cancer, Peter found the strength to bring himself to the diamond and watch Katy play slow pitch. With Betty’s help, Peter re-established, coordinated, and instructed the Brandon Wildlife Junior Rifle Club from 2008 to 2010. Reading, hiking, woodworking, bird watching, and wine making were some of Peter’s other hobbies. Peter is survived by his wife, Betty, children Marcus and Katy (Michael Panciera), sister Marieanne Peterson, mother-in-law Pui Yuk Lam, sisters-in-law Angie Lam and Sanny Lam (Paulo), brother-in-law Roy Lam (Anita), and several nieces and nephews. A celebration of Peter’s life was held at Brockie Donovan Chapel on September 8th, 2011. In passing, Peter wishes to thank all those who touched his life in a positive manner. Thanks to Dr. DuPloy and the nurses of the BRHA Cancer Program for their compassionate care. Special thanks to all those who supported Peter and enabled him to remain comfortably at home until his passing, including Dr. Groves, Melissa Dunbley (BRHA Palliative Care program coordinator), and the nurses of both the STEP and Home Care Program. Memorial gifts in Peter’s memory can be made to CancerCare Manitoba to further research the diagnosis and treatment of head and neck cancers, or to the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation “Palliative Care”.

RAMSAY: John David Ramsay passed away in the City of Brandon on Thursday, September 1st, 2011 at the age of 94 years. John was born on a hot summer day, July 21st, 1917, on his paternal grandparents homestead near Bradwardine, Manitoba. He was the oldest child of Vinna and Willie Ramsay. When John was about 8 months old the family left Bradwardine and went to live at the Freeland farm in the Brookdale area near his maternal grandparents. John would live at Freeland until he was 19 years old. John's brother Robb was born in 1919 giving him someone to play and tussle with. Like all little boys John wasn't beyond getting into his fair share of trouble. In 1929, John's parents brought home a baby sister 'Betty' from the hospital. This was pretty special for an 11 year old boy. School learning was not hard for John but he found it somewhat a bit tedious. By the time he was 15 he had completed Grade 11 in Brookdale. During 1933-35, John spent two school terms at Canadian Junior College (CJC) near Lacombe, Alberta. Here he was baptized into the Seventh- day Adventist church. In John's last year at CJC there was a young lady that took his fancy. Little did he know that he would discover Esther some 15 years later and she would become wife and mother to his five children. In 1935, John graduated from the pre-medical course with the idea of attending the College of Medical Evangelists at Loma Linda, California. At that time he was only 17 years old and the college would not accept him until he was 19 years old. John returned to Brookdale to help his father farm on the homestead property. In 1937, John and his friend Bill McDonald were awarded a trip to the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto because of their work with the boys and girls calf club. John never intended to be a farmer and never forgot his ambitions of becoming a doctor. During the winter of 1939-40 and the following summer, John went to the University of Manitoba to upgrade his education. Disappointingly he did not do well and this ended his formal education. In 1940 the Battle of Britain was on and John applied for status as a Conscientious Objector. This was granted by Judge Adamson in the Brandon Court House. On December 7, 1941, John was called to do Alternative Service at Riding Mountain National Park for four months. John's job in camp was grubbing out trees on the right of way on the road to Whirlpool Lake. The park was building a campsite there for sport fishermen. John returned from Alternative Service Camp in the Spring of 1942 on humanitarian grounds. In 1947, John's father Willie retired and John took over the homestead at Brookdale. Around this time John was elected to the Brookdale Board of Directors of the Manitoba Pool Elevators. He also served as Secretary to the Board for 21 years. He enjoyed his work with that organization very much and deeply appreciated the fine qualities of the men who served with him. On March 16, 1949, John married Esther Neufeld from Hague, Saskatchewan. It did not take long for the babies to come: Phyllis (1950), Patricia (1951), Roberts (1952), Bruce (1954), and Judy (1956). In 1959, John was one of the pioneer members who was instrumental in the founding of the local Seventh-day Adventist church in Brandon. He was one of the last surviving members of this group. John faithfully enjoyed serving the local church as an ordained elder, Bible teacher, and Board member. John was a firm believer in Christian education and all his children completed college or university at a tremendous financial sacrifice. John and Esther's children presented them with six grandchildren (including triplets). They were saddened that their grandchildren did not live closer, but they had lots of reasons now to make trips to Edmonton and see them at least once or twice a year. In 1981, Esther and John retired to Brandon after 32 happy years on the farm at Brookdale. John was 62 years old. John and Esther were very active in their retirement. John built grandfather clocks for each of his children. They loved to go to church camp meetings and travel. John joined the Seniors for Seniors Co-op, an organization to help seniors stay in their houses longer. John enjoyed the work and met a lot of very nice people. Often you would see John driving his 1953 International pickup truck down the streets of Brandon with a lawnmower in the back. There were many family gatherings. A camping trip to Kananaskis in 1996 was a big highlight as well as their 50th anniversary celebration in 1999 in Edmonton. In 2006, Esther was diagnosed with terminal cancer and passed away that year. She was able to see a picture of her first great-grandchild before she died. Now John is the proud great-grandfather of 12 children, the last born one week before his death. John's oldest daughter, Phyllis passed away after a short illness in 2009. After her death, John's home began to lose its appeal, and John began to weaken. He was very lonely and needed more care. On January 13th, 2010, John entered the next stage of his life at Hillcrest Place and lived there until his death. John was predeceased by his wife Esther, and his daughter Phyllis Willauer. He is survived by his brother Robb Ramsay of Brandon; sister Betty Aab of California; four children; Patricia Selman (Jim) of Tsawwassen, B.C., Robert 'Bob' Ramsay (Marty) of Edmonton, Bruce Ramsay (Estelle) of Sherwood Park, Judy Ramsay (Charlie) of Brandon. There are six grandchildren; Carlene Ramsay, Shaun (Jessica) Ramsay, Michelle (Ryan) Jutras, Scott (Rose) Ramsay, Matthew (Noelle) Ramsay, Greg (Alex) Ramsay, all of Edmonton; twelve great-grandchildren: Gavin, Liam, Lauren, Darren, Alaina, Matthew, Kurt,Chloe, Mirielle, Nicole, Amelia, and Jonas. A Graveside Ceremony was held at the Riverside Cemetery, Neepawa on Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at 2:00 pm. Pastor Roy Jamieson officiated Pallbearers were: Pat Selman, Jim Selman, Judy Ramsay, Charlie Partridge, Bob Ramsay and Bruce Ramsay.

McINNES: Bettyann McInnes (nee Turner) died suddenly on August 30, 2011. Betty was born on March 27, 1935 and grew up in the Whirlpool and Onanole districts. At a young age Betty ventured out to work as a nanny in Winnipeg and California. This began her lifelong passion for children and travel. Following her heart Betty returned to western Manitoba where she could be closer to the love of her life while working as a cashier at Safeway in Brandon. In 1955 Betty married Leslie McInnes and they farmed on the McInnes home farm until 1960, when Les obtained employment with Beaver Lumber, living in Carman, Manitou, Waskada and Teulon. In 1963 Les and Betty, along with their four children, Laurie, Cameron, Shelley and Susan, returned to Erickson where they established their own grocery and meat market business. For over 12 years they worked side by side every day strengthening the bond that already existed. With the sale of their business in 1976 Betty ventured out into the tourism industry in the Clear Lake area, first as a waitress and then soon thereafter as the resident manager of Elkhorn Ranch, restaurant manager of Wasagaming Golf Course and finally as Executive Housekeeper of Elkhorn Resort and Conference Centre. Betty and Les enjoyed time for leisure and travel. Their travels took them to places as close as their family cabin at Ditch Lake, camping throughout Manitoba, a seasonal spot at Minnedosa Beach; to as distant adventures as Venezuela, Costa Rica, Hawaii and Mexico. While not an athlete herself, Betty devoted endless hours to the support of her children and the community. For years Betty was on the Figure Skating Committee in Erickson, the Erickson Minor Hockey Committee, served on the original building committee of the new Erickson Skating rink and, for a time served as a Board member for the Manitoba Minor Hockey Association. This passion for sport led to Betty becoming quite an armchair athlete and right up to her passing she never missed a televised Blue Jays game. Betty was a talented seamstress and loved doing handicrafts. This talent led to years of service as a 4-H leader in Erickson. Betty’s creativity was frequently called upon for carnival and snow festival costumes and even leadership in the creation of endless community floats. Betty is survived by her three children, daughter, Laurie Jackson, son, Cameron McInnes and his wife, Arden, and daughter, Shelley Serle, and her husband, Kevin; five grandchildren, Sheena Jackson, Kelsea and Torea McInnes and Brett and Dylan Serle; two brothers, Gordon Turner and Bob Turner (Cynthia), as well as, two sisters in law, Gwen Steiman (Gary) and Alice McInnes and numerous nieces and nephews. Betty was predeceased by her parents, William and Rose Turner; her daughter, Susan; her son-in-law, Wayne Jackson and, most recently in April of this year, by her husband, the love of her life, Les. The family would like to thank Dr. Roche of Minnedosa for his years of care shown to Betty and to the Minnedosa Hospital staff for the respectful compassion shown in her final hours. A private service was held on Friday, September 9th at the Minnedosa Beach Pavilion with burial in the Erickson Cemetery. Long time family friend, Elgin Hall, officiated at both. Memorial gifts in Betty’s memory can be made to the Erickson Recreation Centre, Erickson, MB, R0J 0P0.

MCDONALD: Grant Finlay McDonald, 72, died Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre from respiratory disease. Grant, born in 1939 and his younger brother Murray (Pat) of Winnipeg were born in Oak Lake, Manitoba to Ida (died 1986) and Ken (died 1992) McDonald and raised on a farm north of town. Ida referred to the homestead as "the beaver dam farm". Growing up on the farm, Grant developed a strong attachment to the landscape and people of Manitoba and this only deepened with time. His favorite place in Manitoba was located on a hill rising above the farm where he could look out and in a long sweeping view see seven towns, the location of the one-room school house he attended and the Johnston Cemetery where his parents were buried; he enjoyed sharing this spot with his family and friends. Grant left the family farm to attend Brandon Agricultural College and graduated in 1958 with a Diploma in Agriculture from the University of Manitoba. In 1960 Grant married Marilyn Milne and they settled in Brandon. They had three children together: Kim (Wayne) of Hamiota, Sharon (Eric) of Ste. Anne and Russell (Traci) of Winnipeg. For 27 years Grant worked as a surveyor for the Manitoba Department of Highways, the City of Brandon, Underwood, McLellan & Associates and Zenith Paving. For the past 26 years, he was employed with Crane Steel Structures Ltd, Brandon as a project manager. From a very young age, Grant's greatest joy was to help those who needed help - whether rescuing his brother from a trough of water on the farm, putting together a building system, mowing his neighbors' lawns or shoveling snow from their driveways. Grant always ensured that each experience included a bit of time for a lively conversation. He enjoyed being with his grandchildren, especially during special occasions - festivals, plays, sporting events, graduations - and spending time at his cabin on Otter Lake with his partner of ten years Marlene Campbell of Brandon. For the past couple of summers he enjoyed driving his quad to one of his many friends' campsites searching for a lawn to mow or a friend to chat with along the way. Grant also loved harvest time on the farm. Aside from this, Grant's favorite pastime was playing the spoons, either in his living room with friends or around the stage at the Irish Pavilion during the Winter Festival in Brandon. Grant also loved to dance and he and Marlene took every opportunity to step-out. Grant was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and served on the boards of Trinity United Church and the Otter Lake Development Corporation. He was also a supporter of the Oak Lake Beef Club. In addition to his brother, children and partner, Grant is survived by his grandchildren Paige and Laine Mathison and niece and nephew Heather and Scott, as well as Marlene's family including Lindsay (Lori), Kelly (Kim), Leah-Anne, Alison (Mike) and her grandchildren Deena, Emily, Jessica, Alex, Jordan, Brenden, Tyler, Brandon, Stephanie, Nicole and great- granddaughters Tatum and McKenzie. A Service to Celebrate Grant's Life will be held at Trinity United Church, 1515 6th Street on Monday, September 12th, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. Rev. Wayne Sanderson will officiate. A private family interment will take place at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. Donations in Grant's memory can be made to the Manitoba Lung Association, 940 Princess Avenue, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 0P6 or to Trinity United Church, 1515 6th Street, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 6B3.
