She attended school in Brandon where she met her husband Al who she married in Edmonton in 1940. She began her career as an administrative secretary at Eaton’s but left during WWII to move to Halifax with the Air Force to be closer to her husband who was stationed there. On her return, she took time out to raise her family before going back to work at Brandon Motor Vehicle Licensing. She eventually joined her husband in the family business, Clement Travel, where she excelled working with people. She truly enjoyed the perks of the business, traveling extensively throughout the world. She retired from the business to help raise her grandchildren and spent a great deal of time with them in both Winnipeg and Columbus, Ohio. She returned to Brandon and lived with Gary until moving into Central Park Lodge in 2001 where many of the staff became her extended family. She was a longtime member and past president of the IODE. Music was one of her passions and she was instrumental in forming the Brandon Philharmonic Choir with her good friend, Dr. Lorne Watson. She enjoyed many summers with family and friends at the family cabin at Clear Lake. She passed away peacefully at her home at Valleyview Care Centre (CPL) with Gary and Bev at her side. Stephie is survived by her children Gary (Bev) of Brandon, Gail (Bruce) Reid of Creston, BC, Debbie Patterson of Whitby, ON, grandchildren Sandy Hovey, Jodi (Jerry) Hines, Lisa, Kevin and Brittaney Burr, Kieran Patterson, Jon Slack, Daniel (Shelley) Slack, great grandchildren Ben and Cory Hines and Nicholas Slack. She was predeceased by her husband Al in 1972, brother Joey in 1923 and by her parents.

Dorothy was born January 24, 1919 in Winnipeg, MB, to Christina and William Freeman. Dorothy was predeceased by her two sisters, Nellie and Mary. She grew up in the North End of Winnipeg and told many stories of the Dirty Thirties and the War Years. Jobs were few then, but she was lucky and secured employment at the Unemployment Insurance Commission where she worked for many years as a Section Head. In October 1953 she married Stuart Walton and moved to his farm at Oak Lake, MB. The city girl turning farmer’s wife made for some great stories and lots of laughs. Their only daughter Peggy Lynn was born in 1957. Together her and Stuart shared their hobby of Golden Retrievers and spent many hours training and travelling with their Prairie Dawn Kennel show dogs. Dorothy returned to the work force in the early 1970’s first as secretary at the Oak Lake School and then later as secretary for the Oak Lake United Church. She and Stuart retired to their new home in Oak Lake that he built in 1976, and then moved to Brandon in 2000, first living in The Sheridan and then she moved to Riverheights Terrace. Dorothy joined Stuart in Fairview Home in September 2008, and he predeceased her in December 2008. Dorothy was an accomplished knitter and avid reader until her eyesight started failing. Dorothy leaves to lovingly cherish her memory, her daughter Peggy Percival (Brian Jamieson), and her granddaughters Ashley McKerchar (Jason) and Jody Percival, their father Gordon Percival and special friend Shirley Clubb. A memorial service was held at Johnston Cemetery on September 1st with Rev. Craig Miller officiating.

NICOL: James (Jim) Edward Nicol, beloved life partner of Lizz Komar of Brandon, passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Friday, August 27, 2010 at the age of 74 years. Besides Lizz, Jim is survived by his children Debbie (Colin) Cassidy and grandson Bryan Cassidy, son Brent (Mary) Nicol, sister Lynn Millions, brothers Jack (Marg) Nicol and David (Shirley) Nicol. Jim was born in Brandon April 8, 1936 to Mary (Gillander) and James Andrew Nicol. He received his education at Bloomsbury School, Earl Oxford and Brandon Collegiate. Jim spent his early years working on the family farm, Pues Interior Decorating and later devoted 33 years as a letter carrier with Canada Post, a position he enjoyed until he retired in 1992. In 1996, Jim and Lizz moved to Oak Lake Beach, where he spent many enjoyable hours tending his gardens. He was the local gardening expert, who grew so many varieties of flowers, shrubs and vegetables, and never hesitated to share the produce and plants with many neighbours and friends who stopped to admire his beautiful masterpiece and visit. Right now we are sure he is taking snips of “this and that” to start a new garden up there. Jim firmly believed in giving back to the community through the Polish Association of Brandon, where he served in a number of capacities, a member of the Brandon Branch of the Heritage Club and the FSNA. He was a member of the Sokol Mixed Bowling League for many years and through this became involved in The League of Nations Bowling as part of the Scottish team. Jim actually made the tartan outfits for all the bowlers. When he moved to Oak Lake he quickly joined the Oak Lake & Area Lions Club, where in 2005 he was awarded the Hope Medal for his generous donation of time and work as a volunteer. He was a very talented person who loved cooking, gardening, painting and woodcarving and was always available to make perogies at the Sokol and with friends. Jim was a very social person and loved nothing better than having friends and family visit and was sure to provide tantalizing meals always trying out new recipes plus his tried and true springtime pudding, and then of course a game of cards afterwards. He thought of others before himself and found the best in everyone. Jim was loving and caring and will be missed by many. A celebration of Jim’s life will be held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, on Thursday, September 2, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Harvey Hurren officiating. A reception will follow at the Sokol Hall, 33-11th Street North in Brandon. A private family graveside service will take place at the Brandon Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Jim may be made to a charity of choice.
