BEARD: Linda Ann Beard (Murdoch) May 2, 1953 - October 31, 2010. It is with profound sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Linda on Sunday morning October 31st at the Boissevain Hospital surrounded by family. Left to cherish her memory is her loving husband of 38 years, Lawrence, and her two sons Ken (Amy) and Robert (Candace). She is survived by her grandsons, Rylan and Blake, her mother and father, Marge and Bob Barefoot, brother Bob Murdoch (Jean) and sisters Susan Barchyn (Jim), Judy Barefoot (Paul), and Brenda Whittington (Roger). Linda will be fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews as well as family and friends from near and far. She was predeceased by her father, William Innes Murdoch. Linda was born in Deloraine and grew up in Whitewater and Boissevain, completing her Grade 12 at Boissevain Collegiate. After graduation, she continued her education at Red River Community College in Winnipeg to become a secretary. She returned to Boissevain to marry her red headed sweetheart Lawrence, and raise their two sons, who meant the world to Lyn. She worked for the Ag Office and then moved on to the RCMP Boissevain detachment. In 2007 she received her 30 year service award from Prince Edward. She also worked for the Town of Boissevain in the same capacity. Besides working, Linda was a very active volunteer in the community, Legion Auxiliary, Tops, fundraising campaigns to name but a few. She loved to watch her sons play hockey as they grew up and rarely missed a game. One of her biggest pleasures was spending time with her family and her grandsons. Family was very important to Lyn and she showed her love for everyone by being interested and involved in their lives. She was a skilled crafter and quilter, loved to read and enjoyed camping. Linda’s funeral was held on November 3, 2010 at St. Paul’s United Church in Boissevain followed by interment at Boissevain Cemetery. The RCMP honored Linda by being her pallbearers and many members lined the steps of the church, in their Red Serge. The Legion Auxiliary Honor Guard and many friends and family were present for the service. The family wishes to express its sincere gratitude to Dr. Nell and the staff of the Boissevain Health Centre who provided Linda and her family both comfort and support throughout her illness. Also a thank you to Dr. Bashir and his health care team at CancerCare for their compassion and care. Linda met each of the challenges of her illness with grace and dignity and was always protective of her family.

HICKS: It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our husband, father and grandfather, Merton Orvin Hicks at Brandon Regional Health Centre on Saturday evening November 27th, 2010 at the age of 85 years. He was predeceased by his parents Garnet (1982) and Alice Hicks (1928) of Killarney, Manitoba and his step mother Myrtle (1989). He is survived by his loving wife of over 60 years, Joy and their son Mark, and his wife Diane of St. Albert, Alberta, and their three children Kurtis, Kristopher and Kathryn, all who live in St. Albert, Alberta. Merton or just "Mert" as he was known to most, lived a very full life. He was born at home in Ninga, Manitoba, September 30th 1925, the only offspring of Garnet and Alice Hicks. He attended elementary and high school in Ninga and like many young men during the Second World War joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in support of his country. After his time in the military he took up the Watch Making trade and subsequently became a Graduate Jeweler. Mert lived in a number of places early in his career, Winnipeg, where he met and married his wife Joy, Regina, where their son Mark was born, and finally Brandon where he and Joy have resided for the past 52 years... He joined Ted Duffield, his friend and future business partner, and moved to Brandon in 1958 to be involved with the management of Reesor's Jewellery, a longtime successful Brandon business. His wife Joy was also close by his side working with him for decades. Mert was active in the business community throughout his career in Brandon. Merton was a physically active man, barely sick a day in his entire life. In the Air Force he was a renowned baseball player. He swam, golfed, bowled, and played baseball to name a few sports, he was even curling into his 80s, only stopping at 82, because he was concerned one of these days he would slip on the ice, not because he could not do it. Mert was an active member of the Brandon Lions Club for decades, happily involving himself in many of their community events. He was also very proud of his involvement with a small group of Brandon businessmen in the establishment in 1960 of Brandosa Beach at Lake Minnedosa, a vibrant summer community that holds happy fun memories for many people of Brandon and surrounding area. The family continues to have a summer cottage at Brandosa Beach. Mert loved watching his three grandchildren enjoy the various lake activities on and off the water and was always so pleased that his foresight for the cottage would result in such pleasure for his family. Merton will be remembered as a kind loving man who was always willing to lend a friend a hand and help others. He had a clear concept of principles by which he lived his life and would be considered by most to have been a gentleman in the true definition. Mert taught his son the value of a work ethic and right from wrong, and was always proud of Mark's endeavors in school, sport and business which he will never forget. The family extends its most sincere thanks to the Hospitalist Doctors, along with the nursing staff and the health care aides of 400 and ICU at the Brandon General Hospital, as well as the staff of "We Care" for the care they all afforded our husband, father, and grandfather over thepast five months. Merton felt special and knew that you all cared about him and his well being. After cremation, a memorial service and celebration of Merton's life will be held at Central United Church, 327- 8th Street, Brandon, at 10 a.m. on Saturday December 4th, 2010. Rev. Shannon McCarthy will officiate. His Interment at Rosewood Memorial Gardens will be open to all and will be followed by a light lunch at the church after the Interment.

JONES: Eileen Elizabeth Jones (nee Hagan) May 23, 1940 – November 24, 2010. Eileen Hagan Jones peacefully passed away on Wednesday evening, November 24, following a brief but valiant battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her immediate family, who were remembering fondly her life and sharing in a pre-holiday family tradition. Eileen was born in Brandon, Manitoba. She lived in Brandon for her childhood, graduating from St. Michael's Academy in 1958. At school, Eileen was always actively involved with the school council, sports teams and social activities. Eileen then attended Brandon College where she studied teaching. Following graduation, she accepted a teaching position in Winnipeg where she met James Jones, a Texan who was doing post-graduate work at University of Manitoba. In 1961, Jim and Eileen were married and moved to the United States, living briefly in Grand Forks, North Dakota, then in Houston and San Antonio, Texas. In 1974, Eileen, Jim and their four children moved to Doylestown, Pennsylvania, then Hudson, Ohio in 1978 and Toledo, Ohio in 1980. Eileen and Jim returned to Doylestown in 1987 and lived there until 2005, when they returned to Texas, to reside in Austin. Eileen led a meaningful life, full of joy, hope and passion. Her family was most important to her; she shared her generous spirit with them every day. Eileen ensured that her nieces, nephews, and each of her nine grandchildren knew that they were very special. She determinedly built a close and individual relationship with each grandchild: Laila Drury (13), Liam Drury (11), Callum Jones (9), Jack Jones (8), Finlay Jones (7), Sally Jones (6), Isla Jones (5), Maggie Wright (4), and Eily Wright (2). Eileen was purposeful; she embraced every day for the potential that it held. She was an active volunteer in her communities and churches; they are richer today for her contributions. Eileen was a successful real estate agent in Hudson, Ohio; Doylestown, Pennsylvania; and Austin, Texas. Wherever she lived or worked, Eileen's generosity and caring spirit touched the people she met and she developed a large circle of friends who loved her and will miss her greatly. Eileen was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Winnifred (Queenie) Hagan; sister, Mary Earl; and nephew, Christopher Earl. She is survived by her loving husband of 49 years, James Jones; four children, Erin Drury (Ian), James Jones Jr. (Amy), Thomas Jones (Kirsty), and Kathryn Wright (Marshall); nine grandchildren; and sisters, Sheila Johnson (Allan) and Patricia Hagan.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff involved in Eileen’s care at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
