SMITH: Tyrus “Ty” Raymond Smith. June 26, 1918 – November 27, 2010. With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Ty; husband of Mary Ellen (nee Lawrence) Smith. Ty was predeceased by son James Arthur Smith. He leaves as his legacy daughters Mary-Jane Hale and husband Frank; Barbara Joan Smith; grandchildren Christopher Harris and wife Karen Lawrie, Aimee Fortier and husband Chris, Jennifer Janz and husband Don Brereton, James Janz; Jessica Williams and husband John, and Matthew and Patrick Smith; great-grandchildren, Stephen Janz, Ailie and Emma Harris, Ethan and Gryphon Fortier, and Rhy and Bex Williams. Ty was born to Hazel Irene Davis and James Arthur Smith in Sussex, New Brunswick. He began his working career in the Bank of Nova Scotia in St. John, New Brunswick. He and Mary met when he was transferred to Windsor, Nova Scotia. On February 21, 1942 they were married. Ty immediately joined the Royal Canadian Air Force as a flight sergeant and was posted to Labrador. After the war Ty and Mary were transferred to St. John, then onwards to Edmonton, Regina and Brandon. He went into private business in Brandon where the family lived for many years. Following an expansion of the business, and move to Winnipeg Ty and Mary moved further west to Calgary, eventually settling in Canmore after Ty’s retirement. Ty loved classical music and skiing, and Mary was the perfect ski buddy. Together they skied the mountains around Canmore for 30 years. In addition they enjoyed working with their sled dogs and horses. They were also avid hikers and bikers, coming to know and love every nook and cranny of their Rocky Mountain home. Ty was many things to many people but few knew of his many accomplishments and awards. He savoured his titles but was very modest about the many things he did in life and was very active in service in Canmore. He served on the Hospital Board, Regional Housing Committee, Canmore Legion, Sled Dog Race Committee, Chamber of Commerce, Canmore Museum, PC Party, Rotary Club and Cascade Branch of the Masonic Lodge. In addition he was an Honorary Dr. Of Laws and Humanities and served as the chargé d’affaires for the country of Mali in Northern Africa. Much of his service was in leadership roles. Ty served as President of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, held the rank of Lt. Col in the 26th Field Artillery and was a Knight of Malta, Order of St. John of Jerusalem. A very great honour was to have been nominated for the Order of Canada. His most important role in life was as patriarch of his family and although he was awarded the title of Sir, to us he was our beloved Dad and Papa. To all who knew him, our Dad was an inspiration, a mentor and always a great friend. He was an active member of the community, rising to challenges and working hard to ensure a better place for future generations. With his great sense of humour, quick wit and intelligence Dad’s active participation on many committees, boards and in groups was a pleasure for all who worked with him. Dad had a strong personality and steely determination to always keep moving forward. He had a playful, youthful spirit of adventure, displaying courage and fearlessness in all his endeavours. He never ever gave up and always did his best. It is likely that Dad will already have organized the first Rotary Club of Heaven! While his passing is a great loss to so many, we are forever grateful to have had Dad in our lives. He had a life very well lived. Go well Dad and save a place for us. Until we meet again. We love you. A celebration of Ty’s life was held on Saturday, December 4, 2010 at 12:00 in Canmore.

HUNT: Doris Mae Hunt (January 7, 1920 – December 1, 2010). Doris Mae Hunt passed away peacefully at Fairview Nursing Home on Wednesday, December 1st. Born January 7th, 1920, youngest child of Thomas and Vanna Pue, sister to William and Fred Pue. Left to mourn are her son Richard and Karen Hunt of Brandon, three children Robert, Ryan (Jennifer), Kelly (Greg) Clark; daughter Judy and husband Arthur Huzzey of Abbotsford, B.C., their three children Julie, Jill, Steven; and daughter Patty and husband Grant Griffith of Brandon and their three children Courtney (Jon) Feldman, Jesse (Nadine) and Curtis (Laura). Mom was blessed with six great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Charlie Hunt in 1997 and daughter- in-law Beth Hunt in 2002. In 1940, Mom graduated from Brandon Normal School with a teaching certificate and began her teaching career at the Robert Burns School south of Alexander followed by the Gorrie School, south of Brandon. She met the love of her life, Charlie Hunt, playing tennis at the young peoples group of First Baptist Church, became engaged October 22nd, 1941 and was married April 6th, 1942. For 56 years, Mom and Dad enjoyed a rich and adventure filled life together. Following Dad’s death, Mom lived in Riverheights Terrace where she took great pleasure in the opportunity to meet new acquaintances and restore old friendships. Following a stroke in 2006, Mom moved to Fairview Nursing Home where she was treated with the utmost respect, care and dignity until her passing. Due to the war, Dad was stationed in Coal Harbour, B.C. in 1944 where Mom taught school for 18 months until Dad was posted overseas. At that time, Mom returned home to Brandon and taught school at King George School. In 1945, Dad returned home and was in the Sanatorium at Ninette for one year as he had contracted tuberculosis. While still teaching, Mom received her Master Barbers License, which allowed her to oversee the operations of Dad’s Barber Shop in the old bus depot at 11th and Princess. Mom continued to teach at King George until 1950, when their first child, Richard was born. Mom returned to teaching in 1968 and in1974 graduated from Brandon University with a Bachelor of Teaching certificate in Special Education and continued teaching Special Education at Brandon Collegiate Institute (BCI/New Era) until her retirement in 1980. Music was an important part of Mom’s life. She spent countless years as part of the First Baptist Church choir and up until she became ill in November of 2006, played the organ at her Church home, First Baptist Church every Sunday. She will be remembered for her favorite solo “He Touched Me”, which was favored by many and evident in the number of times she was asked to perform it. Mom’s life was enriched through the many adventures and journeys she and Dad had the good fortune to enjoy. Learning about people and different cultures was a passion of Mom’s and she never missed an opportunity, whether through reading, television or actually visiting a far off land to learn and embrace the people and their culture. Along with exploring every inch of the United States and Canada in their motor home, Mom and Dad enjoyed thirteen winters in Weslaco, Texas following their retirement. Mom treasured her family and friends, and kept connected with everyone when the opportunity arose. Through visits, calls, letters and being a gracious hostess whose home was open to everyone, our family life was enriched through staying so closely connected to so many friends and relatives. She will be sadly missed by the many cousins, nieces and nephews whom she truly loved and treasured. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the many who faithfully visited Mom, Dr. Egan for her care and compassion and the remarkable dedicated staff of Fairview Nursing Home.

HICKS: It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our husband, father and grandfather, Merton Orvin Hicks at Brandon Regional Health Centre on Saturday evening November 27th, 2010 at the age of 85 years. He was predeceased by his parents Garnet (1982) and Alice Hicks (1928) of Killarney, Manitoba and his step mother Myrtle (1989). He is survived by his loving wife of over 60 years, Joy and their son Mark, and his wife Diane of St. Albert, Alberta, and their three children Kurtis, Kristopher and Kathryn, all who live in St. Albert, Alberta. Merton or just "Mert" as he was known to most, lived a very full life. He was born at home in Ninga, Manitoba, September 30th 1925, the only offspring of Garnet and Alice Hicks. He attended elementary and high school in Ninga and like many young men during the Second World War joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in support of his country. After his time in the military he took up the Watch Making trade and subsequently became a Graduate Jeweler. Mert lived in a number of places early in his career, Winnipeg, where he met and married his wife Joy, Regina, where their son Mark was born, and finally Brandon where he and Joy have resided for the past 52 years... He joined Ted Duffield, his friend and future business partner, and moved to Brandon in 1958 to be involved with the management of Reesor's Jewellery, a longtime successful Brandon business. His wife Joy was also close by his side working with him for decades. Mert was active in the business community throughout his career in Brandon. Merton was a physically active man, barely sick a day in his entire life. In the Air Force he was a renowned baseball player. He swam, golfed, bowled, and played baseball to name a few sports, he was even curling into his 80s, only stopping at 82, because he was concerned one of these days he would slip on the ice, not because he could not do it. Mert was an active member of the Brandon Lions Club for decades, happily involving himself in many of their community events. He was also very proud of his involvement with a small group of Brandon businessmen in the establishment in 1960 of Brandosa Beach at Lake Minnedosa, a vibrant summer community that holds happy fun memories for many people of Brandon and surrounding area. The family continues to have a summer cottage at Brandosa Beach. Mert loved watching his three grandchildren enjoy the various lake activities on and off the water and was always so pleased that his foresight for the cottage would result in such pleasure for his family. Merton will be remembered as a kind loving man who was always willing to lend a friend a hand and help others. He had a clear concept of principles by which he lived his life and would be considered by most to have been a gentleman in the true definition. Mert taught his son the value of a work ethic and right from wrong, and was always proud of Mark's endeavors in school, sport and business which he will never forget. The family extends its most sincere thanks to the Hospitalist Doctors, along with the nursing staff and the health care aides of 400 and ICU at the Brandon General Hospital, as well as the staff of "We Care" for the care they all afforded our husband, father, and grandfather over thepast five months. Merton felt special and knew that you all cared about him and his well being. After cremation, a memorial service and celebration of Merton's life will be held at Central United Church, 327- 8th Street, Brandon, at 10 a.m. on Saturday December 4th, 2010. Rev. Shannon McCarthy will officiate. His Interment at Rosewood Memorial Gardens will be open to all and will be followed by a light lunch at the church after the Interment. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to the Manitoba Lung Association, #8 - 940 Princess Avenue, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 0P6 or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, #3, 824 18th Street, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 5B7.
