STEVENSON: It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Jennie Lillian Stevenson on September 5th, 2012, eldest daughter of Harry and Edith (Smith) Purdy, born on March 6th, 1921, in Belmont NS. Jennie’s memory will be cherished by her immediate family, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and all those who knew her. Jennie moved to Shoal Lake MB with her parents in her first year, taking her schooling in Shoal Lake, then graduating as a Registered Nurse from the Winnipeg General Hospital School of Nursing. Her first position was at the Moose Jaw General Hospital, where she worked for a number of years.  Returning to Shoal Lake, Jennie married R C (Dick) Stevenson in June, 1946. Jennie was predeceased by her husband Dick, her daughter Jean, her brother Smith Purdy, and sister Ilene Strickland. She is survived by her son Harry (Julie); her son-in-law Jack Wilson (Muriel) and daughter- in-law Bobbie Stevenson; 3 grandchildren Jason Stevenson (Sarah), Karie Karpowich (Chris), and Kris Wilson (Karen); 4 great grandchildren Shaymus and Brock Stevenson, Kaydence, and Ana Karpowich; and extended family, Lawrence & Marion Reles, Christine Schmidt (Alex), and Neil Gidney (Brenley) and their boys. Upon marrying, Dick and Jennie took up residence north of Ipswich. There they farmed and raised their family. In 1974 they retired and built a beautiful home in Shoal Lake on the water. Many family events were held there, with Grandma as the chief organizer and cook for these memorable occasions. Her initial retirement did not last long, as Jennie returned to school and renewed her nursing skills, working for a number of years at the Shoal Lake Hospital and Morley House. Jennie and Dick enjoyed their home and travelling in later years. Family and community were always very important to Jennie, be it a long trip to see the grandkids take part in a sporting event; serving as a Girl Guide leader (Brownies); serving as a member on the Shoal Lake Agriculture Society Executive; or as a member of the Police and Pioneers Museum Group.  Jennie had the most unique ability to engage in conversation with any age group, and was much appreciated for her terrific butter tarts and carrot cake. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the caring Doctors, Nurses and staff at Morley House and the hospital in Shoal Lake for their tremendous care given to Jennie. Because of this, she was able to remain in Shoal Lake until the end, exactly as she had wanted. In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place, and a celebration of her life will be held on October 6th at 2:00 p.m. in the St. Paul Anglican Church in Shoal Lake, followed by a luncheon and tea at the Shoal Lake Drop In Centre. All her friends are to be considered honorary pallbearers. Interment will follow at the Shoal Lake Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lions Club North Shore Project: P.O. Box 278, Shoal Lake, Manitoba R0J 1Z0; Morley House of Shoal Lake and/or The Shoal Lake-Strathclair Health Centre, P.O. Box 490, Shoal Lake, Manitoba, R0J 1Z0 or to a charity of your choice. Jennie will be lovingly missed by all as the one who remembered special days, volunteered tirelessly in the community, was at the center of family events, and loved her family and friends dearly.

SHEPPARD: Bertha Florence Sheppard passed away on September 20, 2012 after a brief illness. Born in New Harbour, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland on February 21, 1926, Bertha was the youngest of 4 children. As a child she loved books, had a thirst for knowledge, and did extremely well in school. Unfortunately, her father passed away and she was forced to quit school before she had planned, and went to work to help support her family. Newfoundland was part of the British Commonwealth at that time. Bertha was a very proficient knitter, embroiderer and crocheter. She was contracted by Mary Maxim to produce their sample items. At the age of 18, Bertha moved to St. John's and found employment as a housemaid. It was in St. John's that she met her future husband, Calvin Sheppard. They were married in 1945. Calvin was enlisted in the Newfoundland Army Regiment and later into the Canadian Armed Forces. In 1952 he was posted to Winnipeg. He went on ahead, and Bertha followed by boat and a very, long train journey with five children under the age of 7. It was in Winnipeg that the sixth member of the family was born but passed away at the age of 21 months. In 1957 Calvin was posted to CFB Shilo. Having been uprooted from the city of Winnipeg, she felt isolated and homesick upon her arrival by train to Douglas and then Shilo. It took her awhile to adjust and settle into rural prairie life. Bertha worked at the Officers Mess in Shilo and the Brandon Woolen Mills for a number of years. In 1972 she worked at the Brandon General Hospital in the housekeeping department until her retirement in 1988. Bertha enjoyed reading, knitting, gardening and listening to CBC radio. She was able to enjoy and visit with her family who were living all across Canada. Bertha and Calvin also made many trips back to Newfoundland to renew old acquaintances and family ties. After the death of her husband, Bertha moved to Colonial Estates in Brandon, Manitoba. Six years passed when health issues forced her to move to Fairview Personal Care Home until her passing. Bertha is survived by her children: Vivian (Brian) Cyr of Winnipeg, MB; Chesley (Karen) Sheppard of Shilo, MB; Neil (Barbara) Sheppard of Red Deer, AB; Sharon (Pierre) Rioux of Quebec City and Brian Sheppard of Brandon, MB; eleven grandchildren; twenty- three great-grandchildren and four great-great grandchildren. She was predeceased by husband Calvin Sheppard; daughterMargaret Grace; parents William John Clarke and Agnes (Pinsent) Clarke; brother George Clarke; sisters Edna Clarke and Mary-Ellen Higden. Bertha's funeral service was held at Memories Chapel on Tuesday, September 25, 2012. Rev. Barb Jardine officiated. Urn Bearer was Chesley Sheppard. Interment followed in the Veteran's Section of the Brandon Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Bertha may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 3-824 18th Street, Brandon, MB R7A 5B7. Bertha will be greatly missed and will forever remain in our hearts.
Mom, we love you. Rest in peace.
