McMILLAN: Russell Stewart McMillan went to be with the Lord on Thursday, December 16, 2010 after a brief battle with pneumonia. He was 87, survived a number of strokes over the years and, sadly, was developing Alzheimer’s. Born to John and Eva McMillan on January 11, 1923, he grew up in Griswold, Manitoba, Canada. He was one of ten brothers and sisters, two of which survive him (Crawford and Yvonne). Russ is also survived by his ex-wife Barbara, son Richard and his wife Grace, and their three children; Kimberly, Russell and Katherine. Russ is also survived by his son Donald and daughter Linda and her children, Marshall and Kendall. Russ attended elementary and high school in Griswold, Manitoba. He was proud to have served in the Royal Canadian Air Force (R.C.A.F) during WWII. After the war, he attended the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg and the University of Toronto, where he graduated with a degree in dentistry (D.D.S.). He started a dental practice in Barry’s Bay, Ontario, where he married Barbara, who also graduated from the University of Toronto (as a dental nurse). Russ returned to school at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan where he graduated with both a Masters Degree and a Doctorate in Public Health. At the University of Alabama, he helped found the Department of Epidemiology at the medical school. In California he conducted air pollution research at the University of Southern California Medical School in Los Angeles. Russ was listed in the American Men of Science in 1966. He moved to Manitoba in 1968, to Gimli in 1993, and eventually retired there. Russ was an active member of the Unitarian Churches in both Gimli and Arborg and was a licensed chaplain in the Province of Manitoba. He spent many hours working on the restoration of the Gimli Unitarian Church. After a number of health issues, Russ moved into Betel Home on April 30, 2001 in Gimli. He and good friend Alex spent many summer outings going for ice cream and enjoying downtown Gimli, the people, and the views of Lake Winnipeg. He also enjoyed visits from his kids, relatives and friends. Nephew Dale and his wife Linda spent many summer days at the lake visiting. Russ especially enjoyed the water, which there is plenty of in Lake Winnipeg. He was an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous and helped save many lives both in California and Manitoba. Helping people back to health from alcohol addiction was a big part of his life. In his later years he turned to singing and was quite good at it. Russ is missed very much by his family and friends. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations are made in his name to USC, Alzheimer Disease Research Center. Please contact Elena Taylor at the USC Memory and Aging Center at 323-442-7674 or visit the website at http://adrc.usc.edu/giving/ Alcoholics Anonymous does not accept outside donations.

McBURNEY: With great sadness, we announce the passing of Shirley Annabelle McBurney, in the early morning hours of December 25, 2010. She will be greatly missed by her children, Sharon (Paul) Wedderburn, Doug (Russella) McBurney, and Carla (Ed) Rempel; by her grandchildren Donald (Shelley) Wedderburn, Shawn Wedderburn, Amber (Jamie) McBurney-Vann, Katelyn Rempel (Michael Howe), and Mitchell Rempel (Chelsea Wellborn); and her great grandchildren, Katie and Travis Wedderburn. Mom also leaves behind her sisters, Jean (Cliff) Dwinnell and Myra (Bud) Briggs; her sisters-in-law, Betty Saunderson, Jean McBurney and Bev Mitchell and brother-in-law Terry McBurney; and numerous relatives and friends. Mom was predeceased by her husband, Donald (1971); her brothers Wesley (1944) and Murray (1992); her grandson, Matthew (1993); and her husband, Jim (2004). Mom was born March 11, 1925 to Frances and Redge Mitchell at her Uncle Johnny and Aunt Bessie’s home in the District of Melgund, Manitoba. Mom grew up on the family farm in the same District, acquiring her elementary education at the country schoolhouse across the road. Mom then moved to Hartney to attend high school. After leaving high school, Mom worked as the bookkeeper for the Hartney Co-Op for a while before marrying our father in 1946. Mom and Dad enjoyed life in Sanford, Osborne and Gordon Siding as Dad was transferred about with Manitoba Pool Elevators. It was during this time that Mom and Dad started their family and by 1952, Mom, Dad, Sharon and Doug moved back to Hartney as Dad had purchased the McBurney family farm. Mom and Dad farmed the family homestead until 1966 when they sold and moved the family, which now included Carla, to Minnedosa where Dad managed the U.G.G. Elevator. After Dad’s sudden passing in 1971, Mom moved to Brandon. In 1987, Mom married ‘Jimmy’ Morden and they enjoyed their retirement years spending time with family and friends, traveling around Manitoba and to other points within Canada and the States. We will remember our Mom as a gentle and generous lady, who had a quick and warm smile. Mom loved and loved being with her family. She was immensely proud of her children, her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. Her favorite times were when she was surrounded by family and friends, and could often be found in the midst of some good-natured teasing. We want to thank the staff at Hillcrest in Brandon for the years of care and attention they provided to our Mother. A service will be held at the Kowalchuk Funeral Chapel in Souris on Wednesday, December 29 at 1:00 pm with internment in the Hartney Cemetery to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook St. Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 2B7.
