TURMAINE: Wilfred (Wilf) J. Turmaine, 78, of Brandon, Manitoba, lost his long struggle with various cardiovascular challenges on Monday, October 18, 2010 in the Assiniboine Centre at Brandons Regional Health Care Facility. Wilf had been battling heart and stroke issues for the past two decades. Wilf was born March 30, 1932, in Fort William, Ontario, the son of the late Mary and Harvey Turmaine. He is survived by his older brother, Raymond. Wilf was married twice. In 1952, he married Rosemary, the mother of their four children: Deb, Mike, John and Joe. Rosemary died in 1981 at the age of 49. In 1985, Wilf married Moira who was taken by cancer less than a year later. Wilf is survived by his four children, several grandchildren and one great grandchild. His sister-in-law Rosemary and his daughters-in-law Brenda and Sharon were very important in his life. Many other family members who were more prominent in his earlier family days have since moved on but have never been forgotten. A series of private family remembrances have taken place across Canada from Kelowna, B.C. to Thunder Bay, Ontario. A final Mass for Wilf will be held at Dawson Court Home for the Aged in Thunder Bay on Wednesday, December 8, 2010. Wilf enjoyed the retirement that 30+ years of service to Canada Post and 40 years of family and friendship in Brandon afforded him. He will be missed by many. His requests for those able to remember him financially would be to take a member of their family out for a special meal, or a tribute to the Brandon Humane Society, 2200-17th Street East, Brandon, MB, R7A 7M6 (Wilf loved his cats, most recently Harriett) or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, Unit 3 824-18th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 5B7. During his four month stay at the Brandon Regional Health Centre, Wilf saw it all, from Emergency, to the General Hospital, ICU, and the Assiniboine Centre. Wilfs final days were in the Palliative Care section of the AC where he received excellent care and comfort. While still conscious he was able to interact enjoyably with nurses, health care aides and especially staff from We Care. The We Care staff stayed with him 24 hours a day after his release from intensive care and made his last days less frightening. Thank you to all who helped and cared. Wilf will be interred with Rosemary in Serenity Gardens at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens at 4000 Portage Ave., Winnipeg.

Ron was born May 12, 1952 in Gladstone, MB. He received his education in Gladstone after which he began his working career. Wendy and Ron met in high school and married in 1971 and started their family shortly after. Ron worked for Pugh's Concrete, Manitoba Highways Department and in 1976 began his 30 year career with CP Rail officially retiring from there in 2007. Ron was never one to sit still and therefore began his own business RWR Services, in 2001. Ron kept busy with contract work and maintenance for Manitoba Housing and in 2009 found himself yet another job, this one with Hallcon, where his years of experience with CP Rail were a great asset. Ron was always busy working at something and also prepared Income Tax for a large clientele. Ron was known by everyone for his honesty, integrity, courage, strength, work ethic, knowledge, countless skills, humor and his love for life. His soft spoken manner and charm will be missed by all who knew him, worked with him or had ever met him. Ron was passionate about his family, friends and loved baseball as a player, spectator and coach. He was loyal beyond words, his entire life to the Toronto Blue Jays and his Winnipeg Blue Bombers, a strong union supporter his entire career and into his retirement. Ron was proud to hold the office of Secretary Treasurer for The Teamsters Union Local 0145, for many years. Ronnie was a man who dreamed of a better world for all, so sure that this time he had "the winning combination" never realizing that just being near him was "the winning combination". Words will never be adequate to sum up a man or life like Ronnie's. We love you to the moon and back forever and always and miss you more than you'll ever know. May you be at peace, Our hero. The Ceremony to Celebrate Ron's life was held at Memories Chapel on Monday, October 18, 2010. Dr. Evert Busink officiated.

Quote from Robert Louis Stevenson: That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much.
PHILLIPS: Dad left us on the tenth day of this month after courageously battling diabetes and kidney disease. When it became obvious that the Lord wanted him, Dad in typical fashion told us he was prepared to go. Gordon Albert Phillips was born in Toronto on November 8, 1921. He was the youngest of four boys born to Violet and Charles Phillips - a family that could trace their origins to the United Empire Loyalists. He grew up in Toronto, becoming a popular student and athlete and at the age of sixteen met the first love of his life, Agnes McMahon. Four years later Gordon would marry Agnes and set off to serve his country with the Royal Canadian Air Force. Gordon served with distinction in the Mediterranean theatre, flying Wellington bombers in North Africa and during the tumultuous siege of the Malta. He was saved from deployment to the Asian theatre by Truman's decision to drop the Atomic bomb and ended his military career with rank of Flight Lieutenant. Back in Canada, Gordon would complete an agronomist course and in 1946 set off for Brandon to become a seed analyst and commercial salesman for McKenzie Seeds -a position he would hold until 1966 when he changed careers to become an insurance agent and broker. He remained an active broker at Phillips Insurance agency right up until his final illness in August 2010. It was in 1965 that Gordon began his long association with the Kiwanis Club of Brandon, which for 45 years proved to be a great source of companionship and community spirit. Dad was a tremendous athlete playing semipro lacrosse in the 1930's and excelling in basketball when he became an active member of the Brandon YMCA. He joined the Badminton club and was a vigorous player well into his sixties. In his latter years, he became an active golfer, a game that he especially enjoyed for the companionship, which he found with his fellow players. He also remained a devoted fan of the Toronto Blue Jays. Dad lost his beloved Agnes, the mother of his three sons, on February 28, 1974. Dad was not prepared to accept a bachelors life and entered a second wonderful marriage to Dawna Kelleher, which lasted until her premature death in 2000. During their time together, Gordon and Dawna travelled throughout the globe. Memories of these travels gave Dad a great sense of fulfillment in his final years. Dad will be remembered fondly by his three sons; Larry of Fort Frances, ON, Brian of Sussex, NB, and Don of Brandon; his daughter- in-law Elizabeth; his cherished grandchildren, Joseph, Patrick, Colin, Michael and Mary Kate; as well as all surviving members of the Phillips, Kelleher, McMahon families and special niece, Elizabeth Brand and her children. Dad's remarkable personality and love of people left a great impression on his clients and inspired his devoted staff. The good humour and companionship that he found in his work carried Dad throughout his tremendously long business career. The sense of good will created at his workplace along with the love of his family and faith in his church ensured that Gordon Phillips passed away confident that he lived a good and full life. Cremation has taken place. A service was held at St. Augustine's Roman Catholic Church on October 15, 2010. We ask that any donations be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, 727B-10th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 4G7 or to a charity of your choice.

OSINSKI: Mary Osinski. April 8, 1927-October 27, 2010. Following a very brief illness, Mary Osinski, beloved wife of Felix Osinski, passed away October 27, 2010 at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary, Alberta. Mary Hodowanec was born April 8, 1927 in Solotwina, Ukraine, where she spent her childhood years along with her two sisters and brother. In 1942, Marys life changed forever when, at age fifteen, she was captured by German soldiers who sent her to Germany to work on a farm and later in a shoe factory until the end of the war. After liberation, Mary left Germany and found her way to England, where she met her future husband, Felix Osinski. The two were married in 1948 in Bradford, Yorkshire, England. In 1952, Mary and Felix, along with their young son, Zenek, boarded the S.S. Atlantic for a new life in Canada. Knowing little of Canadian geography, they pointed to the middle of the map and chose Manitoba as their new home, making their way by train to Winnipeg, then Virden, where Felix found work on a dairy farm. After a few years, Mary and Felix relocated to Brandon, where they worked and welcomed two more children, Rose and Joe, to their family. Mary worked hard throughout her life at various restaurants in Brandon and then for many years at Brandon University in housekeeping until she retired. She was an involved member of St. Hedwigs Catholic Church and the Sokol Hall in Brandon and had many friends in the community. Mary loved gardening, flowers and Ukrainian culture. After retiring, Mary and Felix fulfilled their dream of living in British Columbia when they moved to a beautiful property in Creston, B.C. in 1998. They spent twelve wonderful years there, enjoying the mild winters and the opportunity to grow a bounty of cherries and other fruits. Marys greatest concern was her family, making sure they were well-fed on her amazing perogies and cabbage rolls and her endless supply of love. This love and concern extended to her siblings and their families who continued to live in Ukraine. Mary enjoyed having opportunities to host family members who visited from Ukraine and she made two trips back to her birthplace to reconnect with her family there. In early October, 2010, Mary and Felix embarked on a new adventure, moving to Calgary to be closer to family and they had been settled for a mere three weeks when she suddenly took ill. Mary was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who will be dearly missed by her loving husband, Felix, son Zenek (Krystyna) Osinski of London, Ontario, daughter Rose (Bill) Halase of Calgary, son Joe (Judy) Osinski of Calgary, grandchildren Anna and Peter Osinski of London, Ontario and grandsons Paul and Andrew Osinski of Calgary, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends elsewhere in North America and Ukraine. Mary was predeceased by her parents and siblings in Ukraine. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Holy Cross Catholic Church, 128-16th Ave. N., Creston, BC, V0B 1G0 or St. Augustine of Canterbury Roman Catholic Church, 327-4th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 3H1. You may forward condolences through www.hffs.com. A prayer service will be held on Sunday evening, October 31 at 7:30 p.m. at Heritage Funeral Home, 1708-16th Ave. N.W., Calgary. A funeral service will be held Monday, November 1 at 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady Queen of Peace Roman Catholic Church, 2111 Uxbridge Dr. N.W., Calgary.

LUHOWY: Anne Dorien Luhowy, October 11, 1947 - October 14, 2010. It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Anne Dorien Luhowy, beloved wife of Nelson Luhowy, on Thursday, October 14, 2010 at the Rossburn Health Centre after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 63 years. Anne was born October 11, 1947 to Bill and Sophia Kozun. She was raised on the family farm in the Mears district north of Rossburn and was the fifth child in a family of nine. She attended Chmelnycki School for 8 years and later attended high school in Rossburn for 4 years. Anne met Nelson Luhowy in 1967 and the two were married in Rossburn in 1969. Their only son, Troy William, was born May 1971. Troy was always a source of pride to Anne and Nelson and the two loved following him through baseball and hockey, before he became a teacher, and started his family with wife Michelle in 2006. Anne worked at the Toronto Dominion Bank in Rossburn until 1985 before finding her passion in the healthcare field where she worked as a homecare attendant and later as a nurses aid at the personal care homes in Sandy Lake and Rossburn. Anne was always dedicated to her work and looked forward to time spent with her co-workers, as well as patients. The simple pleasures in life were enjoyed the most by Anne. She loved socializing at the local coffee shop for all the latest news (while adding her own opinion to the situation at hand) and would be the first one to try out a new hairdresser. She enjoyed clipping coupons, shopping, going out for breakfast on Sundays, curling, and gardening and having company over for a visit and a glass of wine, with ice of course. Always organized, Anne was quick to offer fundraising help to the various organizations within the Rossburn community. She was forever ready with Club 200 tickets for the local curling club or grey cup pool in support of the Little Cubs Den Daycare, Ukrainian dance group, Rossman Lake Golf Course, or Rossburn Hornets hockey team years ago. In the past, she volunteered her time with catechism classes, Rossburns minor hockey and baseball teams, the annual Harvest Festival, and more recently with the Terry Fox Run. Her greatest love was children. She always showered them with attention, gifts and unconditional love. They all knew her as Auntie Annie. The last few years in her life were made even happier becoming a baba to her two grandchildren, Reid Nelson and Addison Dianne. Anne was most proud of them and always had pictures on hand to share with everyone. Although she was only able to experience the happiness as a baba for not even two years, her eyes always lit up with the sight of her grandchildren and we know she will be watching over them forever. After being diagnosed with cancer on Christmas Day 2009, Anne was given four months to live. Through sheer determination, she endured intense pain and surpassed this timeline for a total of nine months. Anne made the most of every moment by never giving up until her final moments when God called her home on October 14, 2010. Her love, generosity and guidance will be forever missed. Anne was predeceased by her parents: Bill and Sophia Kozun, brother-in-laws Nick Gensiorek, Leonard Mackedenski, and niece Luanna Mackedenski. Left to cherish many fond memories is her beloved husband Nelson of 41 years, son Troy with wife Michelle, and grandchildren Reid and Addison, in addition to numerous friends, nephews and nieces, she will be forever remembered by 7 sisters: Marie Gensiorek, Phyllis and Henry Hrubeniuk, Helen and Paul Stanchuk, Judy and Dan Kuzyk, Ollie Mackedenski, Diana and Tom Lawless, Verlene and Randy Bruce; her 1 brother, Eugene and Evelyn Kozun; her 5 brother-in-laws and their spouses: Melvin and Jeanne Luhowy, Stanley and Lydia Luhowy, Morley and Evelyn Luhowy, Zane and Elsie Luhowy, Donald and Lavina Luhowy. Prayers were held at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Ukrainian Catholic Church the evening of Tuesday, October 19. The funeral service was held the morning of Wednesday, October 20, with interment following in the parish cemetery. Father Mykhaylo Khomitskyy officiated. Pallbearers were: Darrell Drul, Dennis Kaskiw, Vince Kurchaba, Eugene Lepischak, Michael Luhowy, and Manley Mackedenski. Crossbearer was Megan Luhowy. Raes Funeral Service of Shoal Lake and Erickson were in care of the arrangements.

Her family moved to Dunrea where Mom spent most of her school years, after that she worked at a boarding house in Margaret before becoming a farm wife. She married Dad on October 17, 1944. Mom worked very hard on the farm in the Long River School District raising her family, a large garden, poultry and doing whatever else came along with farm living. She belonged to the Lyons River Community Club for many, many years. She joined the other ladies in quilting bees, bingo nights and other fundraising activities. Because of her childrens interest in various 4-H Clubs, Mom taught some of the sewing classes. After retiring from the farm she worked in the kitchen at the Killarney Hospital and shops in Brandon for a short time after moving there. Mom married Harry Harland on May 30, 1981. She was once again a farm wife until they retired to Minnedosa. Mom had also started to do oil painting and continued that hobby for many years. She always loved her gardens and flowers. Mom had spent many years doing volunteer work for the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary. Mom and Harry also spent many years wintering in Texas. As Moms disease progressed she had to move closer to family to get the special care she needed. She was very proud of her little family and we will all miss her but know that she will be in a happier place now. We would like to thank Dr. Pio, nurses, and staff at Bayside Personal Care Home for all the loving care given to our mother over the past few years. We would also like to thank everyone who sent flowers, cards, food and donations. In lieu of thank you cards, the family will be making a donation to the Bayside Personal Care Home. A private family memorial service was held in Brandon, MB on October 1, 2010. Donations can be made to the Alzheimers Association or the Canadian Diabetes Association.
