DEROUIN: Donald Edward, 1947-2011. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Donald Edward (Don) Derouin at the age of 63. Don passed away peacefully at the Stony Plain Hospital with his partner at his side, Thursday, May 12, 2011. The strength and courage he consistently possessed in his year-long battle with cancer will be an inspiration forever for those close to him. Don will be lovingly remembered by his partner of 16 years Diane Barnes and her family, his children Lisa (Lyle) Burant and Donna (Trent) Brown, grandchildren Amanda and Jessica Burant, Colby, Michael and Madison Brown, all of Stony Plain. Don is also survived by his siblings, Jim (Joanne) of Medicine Hat, Gord (Bev) of Red Deer, Elizabeth (Roy) Demers of Brandon, Wendy (Harvey) Woods of Rivers, Bob (Diana) of Alberta Beach, Doug of Brandon, Greg (Lori) of Campbell River, BC, as well as numerous nephews and nieces and great-nephews and nieces. Don was predeceased by his mother Florence in 1999 and his father Charles in 2007. He was also predeceased by his grandparents, many cousins, aunts, and uncles including his special uncle, Angus McKinnon. Don was born June 10, 1947 in Brandon, Manitoba, the second of eight children born to Charles and Florence Derouin. He had a happy and adventurous childhood growing up in a large family, and the East End of Brandon was his playground. Don attended King George and Earl Haig Schools before joining the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of 17. He was in the service for four years doing his basic training at Trenton, Ontario before being posted to St. Jean, Quebec. It was from this background that he became a Lifetime Member of the Royal Canadian Legion and served in numerous executive positions including four terms as President at Jasper Place Legion Branch 255. After leaving the Services, Don met and married Dorothy Dobson of Killarney, Manitoba adopted her daughter Lisa and in October 1971 they celebrated the arrival of their daughter Donna Faye and their family was complete. During the early years they lived in Calgary, and Don took a job as an Expediter and they moved to and lived in Inuvik, North West Territories before relocating to the Edmonton area where he has resided ever since. In 1980 Don began his career with Transalta Sundance Power Plant where he enjoyed his work as a Millwright and truly loved his Transalta Family. Each and everyone that Don worked with held a special place in his heart and he talked about them often. Don was a proud member of IBEW Local Union 254. For many summers Don and Diane could be found enjoying lake living at Allan Beach just west of Spruce Grove, where they made more lasting friendships. This was a recurring theme in Don’s life, as once you became a friend of Don’s you were his friend for life. Throughout the years, Don and Diane traveled extensively visiting Diane’s home province of Newfoundland many times. They also traveled to such locales as Hawaii, England, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Disneyland and one of his favorite spots, Las Vegas. In 2007 they embarked on a new adventure and purchased a mobile home in Apache Junction, Arizona and there wasn’t any place in the world he would rather be. In the last year they were able to spend 3 months with the most recent being 3 weeks in February of this year. A service to celebrate Don’s Life was held Friday, May 20, 2011 at Parkland Funeral Home, Stony Plain, Alberta. It was Don’s wish to come home to Manitoba and be buried in the Arrow River Cemetery beside his Mother and Father and his special Uncle and Aunt, Angus and Olga McKinnon. There will be an interment ceremony at the cemetery on Saturday, September 3 at 2:00 p.m. All are welcome to attend.

STIMSON: Margaret Ida Stimson (née Seddon), age 86 years of Brandon, passed away peacefully with her loving son by her side on Monday, August 22, 2011 at the Assiniboine Centre. Ida was born in Brandon, Manitoba on January 1, 1925. She worked for some time at Eaton’s and Waddell’s Children Clothing, before deciding to devote her time to her husband and son. In 1949, Ida married Lorne Stimson and continued to live in Brandon and raise their son, Brian, until the family moved to Kenora, ON with Lorne’s promotion within the post office in 1964. In 1968, another promotion saw the family move to Atikokan, ON. Here she found herself volunteering at a local school helping children with their reading and teaching some the art of knitting. Ida was an avid knitter and was exceptional at her craft. Ida and Lorne were also very involved in Atikokan TV Bingo. In 1981, after Lorne’s retirement, Ida and Lorne moved to Oak Lake Island Resort, MB, where they built their retirement home. They lived there until 1993, when Lorne’s poor health caused them to move to Brandon. Ida was a very devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother (Supergrandma). After Lorne passed away in November of 2004, Ida found living without her loving husband of 55 years to be overwhelming, and her health began to fail because of it. In May of 2005, she took up residence in Central Park Lodge and this quickly became “home” for her, for the rest of her days. Ida was predeceased by her loving husband, Lorne in 2004, father Thomas in 1970, mother Mary in 1988, sister Molly in 2010, brothers-in-law Al Krog in 2000 and Ray Rourke in 1998, and sister-in-law Shirley Seddon in 2005. She will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her son, Brian and wife Joan of Atikokan; grandchildren Clayton (Karyn Wilson) of Atikokan and Christy and great grandson Kaleb (eight years) of Thunder Bay; brother Tom of Brandon and sister Kay of Grande Prairie, AB. At Ida’s request there will be no formal memorial service.

A time of fellowship and refreshments will be held immediately following at the George Brockie Fellowship Centre, 332-8th Street.

Mum - Grandma Great Grandma
You wiped away many tears,And even calmed many fears.You have kissed all sorts of parts,You even somehow healed broken hearts.You gave your love without a second thought,You gave lectures when our mistakes you caught.But you also gave hugs for no reason at all,You held us tight whenever a tear would fall.You gave us the courage to walk alone,You gave us the love of a real home.You endured many things just for our sake,Your love was genuine so much love would be hard to fake.You are truly a gift from God above,Only He could have made you with that much love.
