ROSCOE: Peacefully on October 18th, 2012 in his 91st year of life Joe passed away. Joe was born in Brandon, MB on May 19 1921, the son of Sophie & Frank Roski. At 19 years of age in June 1940, he enlisted in The Royal Winnipeg Rifles and served proudly in World War II until his discharge in September1945. Shortly following his return from the war he met Doreen Sheardown. They were married in 1948 and shared 50 wonderful years together. In 1956 they purchased their first, and last home where they lived for the rest of their lives. They loved to travel to Mexico and Las Vegas in the early years of their marriage. In 1948 they welcomed their first son Danny, and son Terry followed in 1952. A proud father who enjoyed coaching his sons sports teams, Joe worked at both CNR, and the Dutch Bakery prior to his 25 year employment at Canada Post. Throughout his well deserved retirement, he loved to spend time with his family and friends. He was a home body, and always joked he had walked through Europe for 5 years and that he had travelled enough to last a lifetime. He enjoyed spending time at the Legion where he was very involved, and an extremely proud Veteran. He was also a very proud Grandfather who never missed a recital, Christmas concert, birthday, graduation, or any important milestone in his Grandchildren's lives. His presence always brought joy to a room, as he was quite the charmer. His famous dance moves, singing, and hysterical comments were always memorable. He was always up on the latest health information and was the first to tell anyone who visited him or whom he visited his newest health tip. His grandchildren remember well that every time they left grandpa's house he would present them with a chocolate, a werthers, or a loonie. Joe was predeceased by his wife Doreen in 1998, parents Sophie & Frank. Siblings Emily, Ann, Mickey, Pete, and Bill and beloved Granddaughter Trish. Left to remember Joe are his sons Danny Roscoe (Cheryle), Terry Roscoe (Donna), grandchildren Logan Armstrong (Rory) Stephanie Roscoe, Terry Brown, Jordy and Great Grandchildren Ashley and Jade. A private family graveside service was held in the Veterans' Section of the Brandon Cemetery. Honor Guard was provided by Legion Branch #3 members. Officiant was Legion Padre Chris Arthur. A Come and Go reception to honor Joseph's life followed at Memories Chapel. Donations in memory of Joseph may be made to Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Winnipeg Chapter, P.O. Box 21008 RPO Charleswood, Winnipeg, MB R3R 3R2 or The Canadian Cancer Society, 415-1st Street, Brandon, MB R7A 2W8. A special thank you to the wonderful nurses at the Assiniboine Centre in Palliative Care for taking the time to be so compassionate and caring. The four nursing students from BU were especially wonderful, and in particular Kaitlyn, who really touched all of our hearts. These wonderful girls made Grandpa's days so wonderful and told him they would wear poppies in his honor on Remembrance Day. Such a gesture meant the World to him.
His favourite salutation was......."May the good Lord take a liking to you" and Dad/Joe/Grandpa........"May the good Lord take a liking to you!" Bye for now.

LEWTHWAITE: Laura Christina Lewthwaite, age 97, passed away peacefully at the Delwynda Court Personal Care Home in Deloraine on Oct. 4. Laura (Jack) was born on the dining room table in the home of her parents, Stella Pearl Haskin and James Jack, on Mulvey Avenue in Winnipeg on July 25, 1915. Her orphaned father came to Canada with his older brother from Glasgow, Scotland in 1893 at the age of eight, a Bible and a paisley shawl his only possessions. Laura had one brother, Murray, born in 1920, whose family continues to live in the United States. She attended Kelvin High School where, in Grade 11, she received the Governor General’s award for the highest mark in English in the province. She took her bachelor of arts at United College (U of W) and education at the University of Manitoba. Laura put herself through college working in a drugstore afternoons and evenings for $10 a week. She made donations to the University of Winnipeg for more than 70 years. In 1937, at the height of the Depression, the principal of the new Flin Flon school went to Winnipeg to the Department of Education looking for unemployed teachers to teach in Flin Flon. He was sent directly to Laura’s house and she took the job immediately, not knowing where it was she was headed. When she arrived by train two days later, there was no place to live. Laura met Chubb Lewthwaite, the blasting boss at the Hudson Bay Co. mine in Flin Flon, in the church choir. They were married Sept 2, 1939 in Winnipeg — the day before the Second World War was declared. The Lewthwaites left Flin Flon in 1945 to live in Regina where Chubb worked for Tommy Douglas — a hero of Laura’s, with her strong belief in social justice and equality for all. In 1947, with hardware in Chubb’s family background, they went looking for a store and bought Ford’s Hardware in Deloraine. It became the 13th Marshall Wells store in Western Canada. After 30 years in the hardware business, they retired in 1977. As well as homemaking and working in the store, Laura returned to teaching English at Deloraine Collegiate for several years. Marrying into the Lewthwaite family ensured Laura’s strong love of music. Singing in the Deloraine United Church choir was a tradition and Lewthwaite family gatherings always included music and meringue cookies. She was one of the founding members of the Deloraine Border Festival — the Lewthwaite Tudor Bowl for excellence in singing was a testament to her commitment to the arts in the community. Laura was one of the first recipients of Deloraine's Citizen of the Year Award. Among her many volunteering activities in the town, she was one of the original editors of the two Deloraine history books. Laura had a wonderful welcoming manner to all newcomers to town and was genuinely interested in other peoples’ lives and opinions. Women’s Institute, UCW, the quilters and the bridge crew were a few of the many organizations and groups she enjoyed. Sundays were often spent at the family cottage on Lake Dromore, sweeping cob webs and correcting the newspaper. She had incredible patience for ‘teaching’ some of the more obscure rules of grammar. Laura was a champion of the underdog, and tutored dozens of students who found school a struggle, empowering them and giving them dignity. In that act of kindness, she changed many lives. Laura was pre-deceased by Chubb (Jan. 1, 1989) and Sue Tjaden (Dec. 21, 1999) and is survived by family: her daughter Claire (David) Day and their children Scott (Ann) Day and daughter Alex, and Cathey Day (Derek Weidenhamer) and their sons Jacob, Ben and Luke; her son Jim (Karen) Lewthwaite and their children Patrick and Andrew (Krista) Lewthwaite and their daughter Natalya, as well as many nieces and nephews around the globe. The family wishes to thank the caring staff at Delwynda Court and her friends from Border Hills and the community for your friendship and caring. A celebration of Laura’s life, filled with music and laughter, was held Oct. 9 in the Deloraine United Church, with Rev. Allan Gairns leading worship and interment at Deloraine. Laura was truly an active participant in the ‘Greatest Generation’ that settled so many of our small, rural communities. We hope she will continue to inspire all who knew her. Memorial donations can be directed to the SW Regional Foundation, Box 338, Deloraine, MB. R0M 0M0 or the Mission and Service Fund of the United Church of Canada, c/o Pat Whiteside, Deloraine, MB, R0M 0M0.

HASLEN: Laura Alice Haslen of Brandon, formerly of Rapid City, passed away peacefully at her residence, Valleyview Care Centre, on Sunday, October 14, 2012 at the age of 92 years. Laura was born in 1920 to Tom and Alice Elliott, the 5th of 11 children, in St. Charles, MN. The family returned to Margaret, MB, and then to Minto, MB. Laura grew up and went to school in Minto to Grade 8. In her late teens, Laura spent a few months in Winnipeg, where her son Mel was born and given up for adoption to the Cheavins family of Brandon. Laura sought domestic work, which brought her to Rapid City. She worked for the Ranson family, looking after their toddler, Helen. She maintained a relationship with Helen and her mother to the end of her life. After a couple of years, another family needed her to help look after their mother’s elderly father. That was the Haslen family, and she soon became beloved to them as well, but especially to their son, Stan. They married on Stan’s 29th birthday, July 31, 1940. Stan joined the Navy and went to war. They had three children, George Elliott (El), Vicky Lee, who only lived for 4 months, and Alexandra Lynn (Alexe). In 1955, they moved Stan’s tin-smithing business and their little family into the old two-story hall on Main Street and opened S.J. Haslen Hardware. They lived in the back of the store amongst the tin bending equipment for 21 years. In 1976, the machines were sold, the store was expanded, and the rear portion of the main floor was converted into separate living quarters. The store stayed open for another 17 years, even after Stan died in 1981. Laura continued to live in the back and run the store herself until 1993. She finally sold the building in 1995 and moved to the Legion Gardens where she lived for another 15 years. Her final two years were spent at Valleyview in Brandon where she was content to listen to her radio, play bingo, receive her many visitors and interact with the staff. They loved her there and she, as well as her family, appreciated all that they did for her. Laura became a member of the Legion Ladies Auxiliary in 1957 and continued until she moved to Brandon. During that time, she held the offices of President, Vice President and Warden of the Kitchen. In the latter capacity, she cleaned, painted and kept inventory of the kitchen after social events. She sewed and baked items for fundraising events and handled the raffle tickets for Remembrance Day Tea. In 2007, the Auxiliary recommended Laura for the Meritorious Service Award. Laura was also an active member of the Anglican Church, which she faithfully attended. She was an active curler for 30 years and served as social convener for the curling club. She ran the Saturday night bingo at the Odd Fellows Hall. In later years, she attended the Lion’s bingo on Sunday nights, and weekly bridge games at the Legion Gardens. At the store, there were always “collection” boxes of money for raffle tickets for various organizations and for bridal showers and “going away” gifts. Laura chose and wrapped gifts for the brides and went to every shower. Laura was proud of her children and grandchildren and always encouraged them to do their best. She remembered every birthday with a card, a cheque and sometimes a lottery ticket. Laura was reunited with her son Mel in 1997 and had many delightful visits with him and his family. Laura is predeceased by her parents, nine of her brothers and sisters, her husband, Stan, her infant daughter Vicky Lee, and her grandson Clint Cheavins. She is survived by her son Mel Cheavins (Betty), son Elliott Haslen (Trish), daughter Alexe Jones (Dick), granddaughter Brenda Cheavins (special friend Gary), grandson Todd Cheavins (Mia), granddaughter Debbie McDonell (Dwayne), granddaughter Vicky Isliefson (Lyndon), grandson Terry Haslen (special friend Linda), granddaughter Patti Gasnarek (Glen), grandson Jamie Jones (Jackie) and 14 great grandchildren. A service to celebrate Laura’s life was held at the Rapid City United Church on Monday, October 22, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Barb Jardine officiating. Interment was at the Rapid City Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Laura may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Unit 3-824-18th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 5B7 or to a charity of choice.

FLOOK: Dorrie Flook (Archibald) of Brandon died at Valleyview Care Centre in the early hours of October 20, 2012 after a brief illness. Dorrie was born in Calgary, Alberta on January 31, 1922, second daughter of Joseph Flook and Alice Tingle. After WWI, the family moved to Riding Mountain, MB. She spent her early years there attending Roskeen School and developing a lifelong love of nature, gardening and music. The family was extremely musical and Dorrie and her two sisters, Sylvia and Connie, were known locally as the singing Flook sisters. After a brief stay in Winnipeg after WWII, Dorrie, and by now, her two children, Clayton and Leslie, returned to Riding Mountain. The next several years were active ones for the young family. In addition to raising her children, she was active in the small community, particularly the church. It soon became apparent that the church was her true calling, and with the encouragement of her friend and mentor, Rev. Ralph Clark, she entered the United Church of Canada as a lay supply minister. She and her young children lived in several southern Manitoba towns, Silverton, Belmont and Rapid City, as Dorrie served these charges. During several summers, she studied at St. Andrews College in Saskatoon leading to her ordination as United Church Minister in 1968. This was followed by churches in Manitou, Portage la Prairie and a three-year posting to Bermuda. She left Bermuda in 1990 for Brandon where lived until her death. Even after her return from Bermuda, she continued pulpit supply duties in southern Manitoba including Brandon, Hartney and Pilot Mound, often making the rounds in freezing weather and the occasional blizzard. She finally retired at age 81. Dorrie was an avid animal lover and supporter of the local Humane Society. She had a passion for music and had an extensive collection of classical music as well as attending as many of the Brandon Symphony Concerts as possible. Her other passions were her gardens and wildlife. She could name and describe a seemingly endless number of birds, trees and flowers. Her gardens, no matter the size, were immaculate and resplendent with colour. There was never a shortage of mouth-watering fresh garden vegetables for Sunday dinner. Dorrie is survived by a son, Clayton Darryl Archibald, a daughter, Leslie (John) Menzies, and four grandsons, Jordan (Holly), Adam, Hayden and Adrian, nephew Reagan Black (Ellen), niece Corinne Black and cousin Lynda (Peter) Blundell. She was predeceased by her parents, Joseph and Alice Flook and sisters Sylvia Flook and Connie Black. The funeral service to honour Dorrie’s life was held at Central United Church on Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Harvey Hurren officiating. Interment followed at the Riding Mountain Cemetery, where she was laid to rest beside her parents. Pallbearers were grandsons Jordan, Adam and Adrian Menzies, nephew Reagan Black, son-in-law John Menzies and Mr. Sonny Moroz. Donations to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, 4B-457-9th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 4A9 or a charity of choice would be appreciated.
