Laverne worked as a farmer, farm helper, school bus driver and helped many friends and family over the years. His fondest memory was working with his Dad on the farm. His greatest inspiration was his wife, Betty. His greatest joy: his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Driving the school bus was one job that he enjoyed very much. He was always interested in whatever the kids were doing, whether they were his own children or the neighbors'. His grandchildren's activities and family reunions were high on his list of activities. Laverne loved sports. He played baseball, he curled, and although he couldn't skate, he coached hockey. If he could do it over again,he would have played more ball when he was young. He was a great bowler, both five and ten pin. Dancing was another highlight of his life. He taught many of the school children, that he bused to school, how to dance. Singing in the choirs he belonged to over the years was another love. One choir in particular remembers the Christmas tie that he wore one year. It startedsinging another carol entirely while they were singing. He belonged to theUnited Church and worked on the board. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, having joined the Army in 1943. He worked in Minor Sports, worked on the Senior Citizen's Board, and participated in the MSOS Games. Laverne leaves to mourn his passing: his wife of 59 years, Betty; his daughter Joan (Danny) Parthenay; son Gary (Nadine) Slimmon; daughter-in-law, Norma Slimmon (special friend Dave).

Left to cherish Murrays memory is his wife (Beryl), sister (Clair), daughter (Gail), son (Martin), grandchildren (Steven, Alison, Joshua and Zoe) ,nieces (Linda and Carolyn), nephew (Jim) and numerous cousins. Murray was born and raised, September 2, 1927, in a small rural town of Reston, Manitoba. In 1946, he attended Wheat City Business College in Brandon. His love for the automobile industry became apparent as he worked at his fathers garage Reston Motors for 10 years. Murray then worked in Neepawa as Parts Manager for seven years. He then moved to British Columbia for a year where he worked as a Parts Salesman and then to Yorkton, Saskatchewan as a Parts Salesman in 1964. He met Beryl that same year and found they had much in common including growing up in the same era as they were only 22 days apart from each other. As their friendship grew they discovered they had experience similar encounters and so understood one another. They were later married in 1965. They have two children Martin and Gail. In 1976, Murray moved his family to Brandon and accepted the position of Assistant Parts Manager for 13 years at Murray Chev Olds where he took early retirement in 1989. After taking early retirement, he worked extensively with his cousin (Jim Morris) on the Armstrong side of the family tree. He spent countless hours looking over books, newspapers and micro film in the Brandon Library. His endeavors also took him to countless cemeteries around the Brandon area. Murray also loved working outside, building things out of wood and passionately worked in the garden. He once said, that he could lose himself on his hands and knees working in Mother Earth, being alone with nature and God. Murray also had a passion for finance. He was the secretary treasurer for numerous organizations including The Reston Hospital, Diocese of Brandon Cursillo Community and St. Marys Anglican Church. Murray also audited the books for The Daly House Museum and took many courses in tax auditing. Murray throughout his life had a deep conviction for Jesus Christ. He was a member of the United Church up until he got married. He then became an Anglican. He was also a vestry member in Yorkton and at St. Matthews Anglican Cathedral in Brandon. Murray also supported this wife as he learned to be a good listener throughout her ministry as an Anglican Priest. He always tried to be patient saying patience is a virtue. Murray took great comfort in Psalm #46 BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD. He knew that many a time he had to learn to wait on the Lord, and wait for HIS timing, not ours. The family would like to extend their thanks and gratitude to all the doctors and nurses that have helped Murray in many capacities over the years. Cremation has taken place and a funeral service was held at St. Matthews Anglican Cathedral on June 25, 2010. The Right Reverend Jim Njegovan officiated and Reverend John Dolloff assisted. Ashes were placed within the St. Matthews Anglican Columbarium. Donations may be made to Parkinson Society of Manitoba, 302-171 Donald Street, R3C 1M4.
