MATHIESON: The death of Edward Mathieson (Eddy), age 77 years, of Brandon occurred on Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at Brandon Regional Health Centre with his family at his side. Dad was born to Nicholas and Annie Mathieson on December 31, 1932 in Oak River, Manitoba. He later moved to Brandon with his family, where he had resided all his life. Dad received his schooling at David Livingstone School, which was formerly on 13th St. and Assiniboine Avenue in the North End. He was always involved in the garage business, managing the former Shell station on 13th and Rosser, and in the early '70's, was the proprietor. He went on to work at Toyota for Bob Newhouse, formerly on Rosser Avenue and 3rd Street. From there he and good friend Joe Tahhan ran the "Pacific 66" service station on Victoria Avenue, next to the old A &W, or "A & Dubbia" as Dad used to say! (Dad would still have visits with Joe at Joe's Auto Clinic and have his car serviced until recently!). After that, he went on to Binkley Motors, working for Manse Binkley. He finally retired working for Len Kindrat of Len's AM Motors on 10th Street. "Lenny" and his son's were also good friends of Dads. Dad enjoyed his five pin bowling in his early years, winning many trophies and tournaments. He also loved his fishing, spending over 40 years at Sandy Lake, thirty two of them at our "little green and white" trailer overlooking Sandy Lake at"Edventure" Bay. His favorite spot was sitting in his lawn chair under the front bunk of the trailer, or down on the lakefront under the "leaning" black poplar tree with neighbours Ron and Ellen Smith! Those special times will be deeply missed by all. Dad was predeceased by his mother Annie in 1960, father Nicholas in 1980, brother Arthur in 2000. Surviving are: son Darryl (Tam) of Brandon, daughter Heather (Rick) of Brandon, stepson Stewart Mathieson of Creighton, Saskatchewan. Grandchildren: Ryan, Jerrick, Bryson, and Chelsea.

Georgina Mary Cecilia Butcher, long time resident of Birtle, Manitoba, passed away peacefully at the Sunnyside Manor Personal Care Home, Birtle, Manitoba on September 20, 2010 at the age of 94 years.

They had their second child in 1947 and the family of four maintained a healthy and active farm lifestyle which had its difficulties but proved to be successful with many lasting and rewarding memories. She treasured and enjoyed the many friendships and experiences that resulted from farm life. Georgina and Doug sold the farm, retired and moved to Birtle in 1978. Following Doug’s death in 1981 Georgina continued to live on Vine Street in Birtle until 1996 at which time she moved to the Pioneer Lodge in Birtle, and later to Sunnyside Manor in 2009. Georgina appreciated her life long roots in the Birtle area and felt very comfortable and thankful with the assistance and support of the Birtle community. She was always very devoted and supportive to her family, organized frequent family activities and was very close to her sister Evelyn, the two were blessed to reside close to each other during their later years and were able to participate and enjoy many things together. Georgina was a long time member of the Birtle United Church and a member of the Eastern Star since 1954.
