CAMPBELL: Peacefully with her family by her side, Maudie Leona Campbell age 85 years, passed away on March 6, 2011. Maudie was a resident of Glenora, Manitoba. She was born October 26, 1925, third child of Gertrude (Mayo) and Colin Campbell of Clearwater. She had four siblings, Margery, Dorothy, Colin and Lorne. Colin died at an early age. She was married on October 5, 1946 to Harry Comber when she moved to his farm at Glenora. They celebrated 63 years of marriage in October, 2009. Maudie received her education in Clearwater. She then went to work for Manitoba Telephone as a switchboard operator in Crystal City. Over the years, she worked as a partner with Harry in the family farm operation, worked for several years in the Grocery store in Glenora, was an Avon Representative for over 25 years and had an astounding career as a volunteer. She held the position of Correspondent with the Baldur Gazette, faithfully reporting on the happenings in the Glenora community via the Glenora News for many years. Maudie was a hard working and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was a community builder and a volunteer extraordinaire. She loved her family, her community, her friends and neighbors, nature – especially birds, gardening and flowers, and of course her spoiled dog. She was exceptional at cooking, baking and canning and she also sewed. She loved sports, music, books and travel and did it all with flair. Maudie was also a huge music fan and played some piano herself. She loved to dance and spoke often of her love for the music from the era of the “Royal Canadians. In recent years her favorite local band was unquestionable “Country Blend” of whom she was a staunch supporter. Curling was Maudie’s favorite sport. She curled herself to the age of 69. She loved watching the Scott and the Brier. Kevin Martin was her favorite curler. Maudie also followed NHL hockey on TV and was a big fan of Wayne Gretzky. She enjoyed baseball as well and whether it was the Glenora Grizzles, Baldur Regals or the Blue Jays , she was a great fan and rarely failed to attend the Clearwater Sports Day every July 1st She was involved in a multitude of committees for a period of over 60 years. The ACW, St. George’s Church, JA, The Little Helpers, 4-H, the Glenora Curling Club, the Hall Committee, the Rink Committee, the Booster Club, the Historic Society, the bingos, the Red Hat Society, as well as the various centennial events for the school and for the church. One of her special involvements was the Glenora Friday Meal of which she was a founding member. In addition, Maudie canvassed for the cancer society every year for over 20 years. She took a leadership role in many of these volunteer organizations and as such her absence has and will be noticed. Maudie was very hard working, kind and generous not only to her family but to everyone. She had a keen sense of humor, an easy going personality and was very young at heart. She was ageless in terms of her associations with people and had an easy rapport with any age group. She loved her friends and had countless reminders of their feelings for her through the many acts of kindness cards, calls and visits during her illness. Her friends were there for her in every way. A famous writer once said “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give”. Based on that, Maudie, made one simply amazing life. Maudie is survived by three children; Lorraine Comber of Brandon, Judy (Bob) Borus and Brad Comber of Winnipeg, her two grandchildren, Blaine Tyler and Brett Ainsley Borus, sister- in-law Dorothy Fines, Fruitvale B.C, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. A memorial service was held on Thursday, March 10, 2011 in the Baldur United Church with Helen Delorme and Peter Warkentin officiating. The Eulogy was presented by Maudie’s three children. Pall bearers were Greg Crayston, Jack Bolack, Wes Wickens, Allan Cuthbert, Denny Kynoch and Bill Odell. Internment was in Baldur Cemetery. Music was provided by Sharon Bannerman, Henry Martens and Diane Lodge and the Baldur United Church choir. The Glenora Boosters provided a lunch in the Glenora Hall. Funeral arrangements were provided by Jamieson’s Funeral Services.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,I am not there, I do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blow.I am the diamond glint on snow.I am the sunlight on ripened grain.I am the gentle autumn rain.When you wake in the morning hush,I am the swift, uplifting rushOf quiet birds in circling flight.I am the soft starlight at night.Do not stand at my grave and weep.I am not there, I do not sleep.

GIESBRECHT: Peter George Giesbrecht of the Brandon University IT Department passed away on Saturday, March 12, 2011, in his 53rd year. He is survived by his wife Kathryn Giesbrecht (nee Walker); daughter Marina Hannappel; parents George and Eva Giesbrecht of Portage la Prairie; sister Irene Overton (Marc Price) of Winnipeg; brother David Giesbrecht (Crystal Hanson) of Nanaimo, B.C.; and nephew Chris Overton of Winnipeg. He was predeceased by an infant sister. Peter spent his formative years in Austin and High Bluff, Manitoba and graduated from Arthur Meighen School in Portage la Prairie. Following summer and part-time jobs with Campbell's Soup and McPhillips Cable during high school, Peter entered Brandon University, where he planned to become a teacher. Instead, he discovered his passion for computers and found his career in the university's IT Department. There he endeared himself to students, staff and faculty with his patience, guidance and humour. As he generously shared his expertise and rose to the position of Coordinator, User Services, Peter became, informally, the teacher he had set out to be. Peter also served his Brandon University colleagues as union steward and, ultimately, MGEU Local 135 President, a role in which he gained respect as a fair, professional and competent leader. Peter attained his greatest happiness, however, when he found his soul-mate in Kathryn, whom he married in April, 2006. This marriage gave him the added joy of a daughter, Marina. Although their time together was far too brief, his brightest legacy lies in his having shared with them that same patience, guidance and humour for which he is so well-known, as well as great love and deep affection. The family wishes to acknowledge the exceptional care that Peter received from the staff at the Brandon Regional Health Centre and the generous support provided by the staff of Brandon University at this difficult time. The Ceremony to Celebrate Peter's Life will be held at Central United Church, 327 - 8th Street, Brandon, on Friday March 18, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. The Reverend Dr. Peter Hordern will officiate. In lieu of flowers, friends who wish to do so are invited to make a donation in Peter's memory to the Brandon University Student Union Food Bank, 270 - 18th Street, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 6A9.

He is survived by his daughter Heather; son-in-law Dean and grandsons: Jeffery and Derek Dickson and Jessie Turton. Cliff was predeceased by his daughter Lynn Turton; his parents William and Matilda; siblings Gertrude, Hazel, John, Doris, Victor, Lawrence and Wilf. Cliff was born on February 5, 1921 in Saskatchewan and moved to the Sinclair District of Manitoba in 1927. He spent the next several years working on the farm and eventually moved with his family to Rapid City in 1937.

Upon his return in 1945, and discharge from the army in 1946, he returned to Clear Lake where he worked for several years before moving to Brandon in 1952.

His family enjoyed his passion for camping which led to many trips within Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the United States, highlighted by longer trips to both California and Florida. In winter, Cliff could be found playing or skipping on many different curling teams. The highlight of his curling career was the rare feat of scoring an eight ender and becoming a member of this exclusive club.
