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 Deborahs 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. Johns, Newfoundland. Mourning Evas 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 couldnt 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. Gams used her teaching background to the fullest by tutoring many children throughout the years. Gams children, grandchildren and many others benefited from her patience and her love for teaching. Gams 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? Gams 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.

NIELSEN: Our Dad, Stanley William "Stan" Nielsen passed away on February 20, 2011 at Brandon General Hospital with his family by his side. A Celebration of Life was held at Rivers United Church on February 25th. Minister and friend Glenna Beauchamp officiated. His grandson Steven Kent was the urn bearer. Stanley William Nielsen was born in 1923 at Minnedosa. In 1944, he married Ila Shuttleworth who predeceased him in 2000. Dad and Mom began their life together and their family on a farm near Pettapiece. Dad worked for Brandon Packers and Harvath Construction until he and Lloyd Leech started their own construction company which continued for 25 years. Dad retired in 1985. Stan was a smooth dancer, whether he was square-dancing with mom or doing a slow dance with his daughters. He had almost infinite patience with his children. We remember our dad whose love of animals let us have many different pets like dogs, cats, skunks, cows, rabbits, turkeys and mice. Stan was a carpenter who helped build many houses in Rivers and the prankster who used to send unsuspecting people to the lumber yard to get a sky hook or a board stretcher. He was a fisherman who once caught a sea gull and spent a long time getting it un-caught! We remember the neighbor who was a regular at the coffee shop and the golfer who played his own particular version of golf called "Clousting the Balls". Dad just hung his golf clubs last summer after averaging 150 rounds. We remember our dad who passes his love of this game onto his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We honor and give thanks for the farmer, carpenter, fisherman, animal lover, dancer, guitar and banjo player, curler, golfer, athlete, coach, card player, story and joke teller. Stan was a man who loved family gatherings and was often accompanied by a dear friend Joan. The humorous ways they joked back and forth led to many more laughs around the table. We give thanks to: our father who taught us to always be there for others, to our grandpa, great-grandpa and great-great-grandpa who was always interested in our activities and who was always proud of our achievements. He will always be remembered by his children: Garry (Betty) Nielsen, Darlene (Terry) Berreth, Lois Turner, Patti (Jim) Kent, 15 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great-grandchildren. He is also survived by sister Joyce Campbell, brother-in-law Ed Shuttleworth and sister-in-law Mary Nielsen. Stan was also predeceased by his parents, Alfred and Christense, brother Vic, sisters Freda and Paula, daughter Betty, son-in-law John, great granddaughter Jessica. Memorial donations may be made to community charities or a charity of choice.

FLEMINGTON: Garnet Alvin Flemington. After a very brief fight with cancer, Garnet Alvin Flemington passed peacefully into the arms of his loving Saviour on Wednesday evening, March 9th, 2011. He leaves to cherish his wonderful wife, Marian Rose (Cookshaw), children Heather Bage (Tony), Colin Flemington (Kerry), Karla Douglas (Shawn), ten deeply loved grandchildren, brother Kevin Miller, sisters Karen Branson and Terry Miller. Garnet was born on July 31st, 1945 in Maryfield, Saskatchewan to Vivian Beryle Flemington. He was raised on his grandparents farm, where he first discovered the joys of tinkering. Whether it was fixing old cars, rigging up a washing machine motor to a bicycle, or his accomplishments as a carpenter, Garnet never backed down from trying something new. And whatever he did, he did it well and with the intent that his workmanship would stand the test of time. Garnet met the love of his life, Marian, in the fall of 1971, and the rest is history. Three children and ten grandchildren later, Garnet and Marian were able to celebrate their 39th wedding anniversary on March 4th. Garnet loved his family deeply and showed that love by passing on his zest for life to his children and grandchildren. He loved to tinker with Colin, sing with Karla, joke with Heather, and get down and play with his grandkids. Garnet was also a gifted musician; there was nothing quite so lovely as Garn on his guitar, singing old standards or favourite hymns. Garnet accepted Christ as his Saviour in the winter of 1984. Although Garnet wasnt a man who delved deeply into theological discussions, his faith was wonderfully simple and refreshing. As such, his faith had a deep impact on his family and those who came to know him. A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, March 15 at 2:00 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg.
