STURKO: It is with great sadness we mourn the passing of my husband and best friend, Walter Sturko. Walter was a wonderful husband, great father and grandfather who wanted only the very best for his three sons, Michael, Gary and Greg, who he loved dearly. Walter was a wonderful person and loved by all that knew him. Never said a unkind word about anyone and always looked for the best in everyone. Walter was employed by the Canadian Pacific Railway for 42 years. Served with the Princess Pats overseas. His great passion was his garden, fruit trees, flowers and the years we spent at the lake with our three sons until they had other things to do. Walter and myself were married for 60 beautiful years, they went by so quickly. I will miss him forever until we meet again. Walter lost his sight 15 years ago but learned to take his walks and never had any complaints. Walter was a life time member of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Holy Ghost and attended until he was not able to go anymore, but always kept in touch with church matters. Walter is survived by his loving wife, Stella, sons Gary (Candy), Greg (Brenda) and grandchildren Aisha and James. He had such great love for his family. Many nieces, nephews and cousins also survive him. Walter was predeceased by his mother and father, Tina and Metro, sister Jean Scory, sister Mary Blacford, brother Nick Sturko, and our loving son Michael who passed into God’s Kingdom two years ago at a young age. But my husband and Michael will walk through the tall grass and wild flowers, together with Jesus in the Holy Kingdom. We will all meet there some day with great love and prayers, Jesus said so. Service of Christian Burial will be held at Memories Chapel, Friday, April 15, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. with viewing from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. The Very Rev. Father Michael Skrumeda officiating. Gladys Worthington will read a memoriam for our husband and Dad, who was a forever friend. Private burial will be held at the Brandon Cemetery. We thank our Lord Jesus for the wonderful 60 years of marriage and all the blessings and I know we will all meet gain in God’s Holy Kingdom, Jesus said so. Family members wish to thank all those who came to pay homage to Walter with God’s Blessing. Thank you for sharing our grief and sadness. We will miss my husband and our Dad and always remember him forever until we meet again in God’s Holy Kingdom. ~ God’s Holy Blessing, Stella, Gary, Candy, Greg and Brenda. Thanks to Dr. Engelbrecht, Dr. Meyers, Dr. Egan, nurses on 400, and Dr. Turabian.

McLEAN: Bessie Irene McLean. June 2, 1915-April 9, 2011. Bessie (Brown) McLean was born in Basswood, MB in 1915, one of nine children born to Ed and Florence Brown. Bessie completed high school and worked as a “hired girl” in Minnedosa, Hafford, SK, and for the McLean family. During World War II she enlisted in the RCAF serving in Canada as an air force nurse’s aide in Dauphin and Rivers, MB. During her RCAF service she married Arnold McLean. Toward the end of the War she left the Air Force and took a job at the United Church Mission Hospital at Eriksdale, MB until Arnold returned from overseas. Her commitment to the Canadian Legion and Legion Auxiliary continued through her life and she received a life membership in the Legion. When Arnold returned from overseas, they spent the next years farming at Strathclair, raising their family, and in community service. Bessie was active in Strathclair United Church, serving at different times as Baby Band leader, Sunday School teacher and superintendent, CGIT and camp leader, mission project coordinator and local Board member, as well as regionally in the Presbytery and Conference. She engaged in a variety of other community service activities at Strathclair with figure skating committees, fair committees, chairing the Community Christmas Concerts for many years, the theatre committee and organizing many bridal shower committees. Her lively interest in community history led her to be instrumental in writing the first history book of Strathclair Municipality (Our Story to 1970) as well as the histories of Strathclair Agriculture Society, Strathclair United Church, Marney United Church, and Carleton Lodge. Her long-time work for the Strathclair and District Review gave her much pleasure. She enjoyed travels, both longer trips and short day trips to look at birds, flowers and fall leaves. She was an avid reader, a maker of scrapbooks, a decorator for special occasions, and a baker of delicious buns. Bessie was always a team player working with others for the betterment of the community and world. Bessie was predeceased by her husband, Arnold, in 2000. She is survived by Ron McLean (Christine Broadhead), Shaun McLean (Angela Vaags), Shannon McLean-Geletchuk (Darren Geletchuk), Charlotte Caron, Gwenna Moss, Margaret Amy, Marion and Don Ferguson, and other family members and friends. Bessie moved from Strathclair to live in Morley House in Shoal Lake from 2004 to 2008. Although she moved to Calvary Place in Winnipeg in 2008 to be closer to Charlotte and Gwenna, her heart remained in Strathclair, the community she worked to sustain for so many years. Funeral services will be held at Strathclair United Church on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. Donations in memory of Bessie may be made to the Mission and Service Fund of the United Church or to the Strathclair Theatre Committee for the Theatre Legion Wing.
