PHILLIPS: Peacefully in the early morning hours of September 20, 2012, Ruth Florence Phillips, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away at Valleyview Care Centre. Mom was born in Cardale, MB on March 30, 1924 to Frank and Cora Durston. As the oldest of ten children, she spent her early years helping out with her siblings and doing chores on the farm. Ruth attended school in Cardale, leaving home at the age of 16 to work in the area as a hired farm girl. She then relocated to Rapid City, MB where she worked at the Queens Hotel and the Canada Packers Creamery. In April of 1944, Mom started dating Gilbert Phillips. They were married at the Anglican Church manse in Minnedosa, MB on November 15, 1944. They resided on a farm north of Forrest, MB until 1952 when they moved to Brandon, MB where they lived for the next 3 years. In 1955, Ruth and Gib purchased the Massey-Harris dealership in Rapid City, MB and thus began Gib's Service. She spent the next 32 years working alongside our Dad selling machinery and serving the needs of the community. Mom did the bookkeeping, made special trips to Brandon to get a much needed part and in general kept the day to day operations running smoothly. After retiring in 1987, Mom and Dad filled their days with bowling, gardening and travelling as well as their various church activities. Throughout the years Ruth's interests involved the Rapid City Stock Car Club and the Brandon Wheat Kings. In later years she was a founding Member of the Manitoba Genealogical Society and served as the Rural Research Chairperson for many years. A work of pride for her was compiling the Phillips and Durston Family Histories. As an active member of the LDS Church, she was called upon to teach in the Relief Society and Young Women's Programs and she loved doing home teaching visits with Dad and other Church members. Mom resided in Rapid City until Gib's passing when she moved to Brandon in the fall of 2006. She spent 3 years at Winnipeg House and her final 3 years at Valleyview Care Centre. Ruth is survived by her fourdaughters: Bernice Finlay, Shirley (Harold) Slator, Patty Phillips and Linda (David) Ewald; grandchildren Doug Finlay (Hali), Sandra (Bart Gloor), Cameron Slator (Lisa), Jason Slator (Kim), Tammy Slator, Johnathan Ewald, and Joshua Ewald as well as great-grandchildren Zane Finlay, Melanie and Kelsey Gloor, Donald and Jessica Slator and Kaitlyn and Riley Slator.

When I'm Gone
When I come to the end of my journeyAnd I travel my last weary mileJust forget if you can, that I ever frownedAnd remember only the smileForget unkind words I have spokenRemember some good I have doneForget that I ever had heartacheAnd remember I've had loads of funForget that I've stumbled and blunderedAnd sometimes fell by the wayRemember I have fought some hard battlesAnd won, ere the close of the dayThen forget to grieve for my goingI would not have you sad for a dayBut in summer just gather some flowersAnd remember the place where I layAnd come in the shade of eveningWhen the sun paints the sky in the westStand for a few moments beside meAnd remember only my best Author Unknown

LEWANDOWSKI: Sister Mona Lewandowski died peacefully at Rideau Park Personal Care Home in Brandon on September 24, 2012. Mona was born February 6, 1936 in Bethany, MB. Predeceased by her parents, John Lewandowski and Josephine Swiscoski (née Kozoroski), her step-father Albert Swiskoski, her brothers Donald Swiskoski, and Henry Swiskoski, Mona is survived by her sisters Beatrice Coulthard, Dorothy Levandoski, Ann (Leroy) Berehulka, Shirley (Bruce) Wareham, her brother Rod (Evelyn) Lewandoski, her sister-in-law Geraldine Swiskoski, numerous nieces and nephews, and her religious family, the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions (RNDM). Mona completed her secondary education at St. Michael's Academy in Brandon, which was operated by the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions. It was at St. Michael’s that Mona had a sense of God calling her to religious life, and she applied to become a Sister. In the autumn of 1961 Mona entered the RNDM novitiate in Regina, SK and after three years, made her first vows. She furthered her education at both the University of Regina and Brandon University, completing Teacher training and a B.A. degree. She taught at St. Augustine's and Sacred Heart schools in Brandon from 1967- 1971. On September 4, 1971, Mona made her perpetual vows as a Sister of Our Lady of the Missions at St. Augustine’s parish in Brandon. She was subsequently missioned to be the Religious Education Coordinator for St. Augustine’s. For the next eight years, she wholeheartedly took on this work, and made numerous friends in the parish. After a Sabbatical year in Rome, she returned to Canada to live in Ste. Rose du Lac, and served as Religious Education Coordinator for the Dauphin Deanery from 1980 -1988. In 1989 she returned to Brandon, and took on leadership and administrative responsibilities for the RNDM community at St. Michael’s Academy, until the Academy closed in September 2005. Throughout her life, Mona was active in various social justice initiatives with Chilean and Nicaraguan refugees, with Development and Peace, and with the Westman Association for Terminal Care in Hospice. An explorer at heart, she lived her life with a pervasive sense of wonder, curiosity and humour. In February of 2010, Mona fell and sustained a hip-fracture from which she never fully recovered, and then moved to Rideau Park Personal Care Home. The Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions and Mona’s family are most grateful to the staff at Rideau Park Personal Care Home for their outstanding competence, care and compassion. Prayers for Sr. Mona will be held at St. Augustine’s Roman Catholic Church, 327-4th Street, at 7.00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 26. Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Thursday, September 27th at St. Augustine’s Church with Rev. Kevin Smith as Principal Celebrant. Interment will take place following the funeral.

SEAFOOT: It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of William Garth Seafoot on September 8th, 2012 at his home. Garth was born on April 26th, 1936 in Souris MB., fifth child of Fred and Gertie Seafoot. He was raised on the “Old Homestead” farm in Oakland Municipality. Garth was predeceased by his parents, siblings Viola (Mahoney), Ken, Morris, Dodie (Metcalfe) and Cliff. Garth and Wilma (nee Burton) were married in Boissevain on May 11th, 1957. They were blessed with three children: Keven (Terralee (nee Good), Marla (Jack Buchanan) and Gail; their grandchildren: Nicole Kowal-Seafoot (Curtis Tomei), Jordan and Theron Seafoot, Kyle and Connor Buchanan, and great grandson Luca Tomei. Garth farmed with his Dad, Morris, Cliff and Keven. Besides farming, Garth also worked as a surveyor for the Manitoba Highways Department for 35 years and retired in 1991. Following retirement, Garth remained on the farm to enjoy the peacefulness of country living. Garth was a beloved husband, father and grandfather, devoted to his family. Garth loved the game of baseball. Probably the highlight of managing a team was in 1985 when Team Manitoba won the Western Canadian Championship and later that year won the bronze medal at the Nationals in Kentville, N.S. Curling was also an important part of his life. He enjoyed the competitiveness and comradery of these two sports. He played/managed the Riverside Canucks for 41 years (1950-1991). In 1998 he was inducted into the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame. Garth took pride in coaching and teaching his grandsons and others in minor baseball the fundamentals of the sport. Other interests were hunting, spending time at the hunting shack with his friends, golfing, yard care and attending curling events and MLB games. Friends and family alike will fondly remember his quick wit and sense of humour. Left to mourn his passing is his loving wife Wilma and family, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law; Eleanor Seafoot, Doreen Seafoot, Bob Burton, Clair and Judy Burton, Frank and Sandra Burton, Jean Percy, numerous nieces and nephews, relatives and friends. A celebration of Garth’s life took place on Sept 15th, 2012 at St. Paul’s United Church, Souris with Interment at Carroll Cemetery. Donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 6 Donald St. Suite 200 Winnipeg, MB R3L 0K6, or to a charity of your choice.

ONISIMCHUK: Eva Onisimchuk, born March 8, 1930 in Kelwood, Manitoba to Dmytro and Maria Sul, died on Thursday, September 13, 2012 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre the age of 82 years. Eva attended Norgate School and worked in McCreary at Climens store. In later years, she worked at Osborne Home in Neepawa. Eva was married to George Onisimchuk for over 60 years until he predeceased her in 2007. She is survived by her four children:Linda Prociuk (Ed), Eileen Mosson (Orval), Jack (Ev), and Randy; six grandchildren: Jocelyn, Melissa, Josh, Jason, Angela, and Jill and two great grandchildren: Ryder and Hunter. Mom and Dad farmed at Kelwood for many years on a mixed farm and she was quite capable of running any piece of farm equipment. In addition, she carried milk and water pails daily to all of the animals; a hard but fulfilling life. Eva and George moved to Neepawa in 1977, and were finally able to relax somewhat, but with downsizing from an acreage to the city lot, found they had to have a massive garden to satisfy their need to plant. Their garden was a showpiece and this year she was still able to have her 36 tomato plants and 12 foot sunflowers. It broke her heart that she was unable to harvest this herself. She shared that it "just made her mad that she couldn't be in the garden." Eva's wish, as was George's, was to stay forever in her own home and she was able to do that until a few days before she passed. A witty, caring, generous, "no frills" lady that was our "rock". She will be missed by all of us. The Graveside ceremony was held at the Riverside Cemetery, Neepawa, Manitoba on September 19, 2012. Rita Friesen officiated. Friends who wish may make a donation in memory of Eva to the Neepawa Cancer Care, P.O. Box 1240, Neepawa, MB, R0J 1H0.
