HOLLYOAKE: Rowland William, 1918 - 2011. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rowland (Roly) William Hollyoake at the Brandon Assiniboine Centre unit on November 11, 2011 at the age of 93. Roly was born March 20, 1918 in Stony Stratford, England.  He emigrated with his family from England to Canada when he was 11 years old.  The family settled in Mannville Alberta on a farm, which was not Roly's cup of tea and as soon as he was able, he joined the Air Force in 1942. After training in Ontario he was posted to Dauphin Paulson Airport as an aircraft mechanic.  He spent his entire air force life at Paulson Airport and freelanced as the base projectionist to entertain the troops with movies. After his honorable discharge from the war (1945), he met his future wife Louise Musgrave in Dauphin. He decided to hitchhike to Hollywood where he would meet Bob Hope & Mary Pickford and stay with Roddy McDowall.  His story of this trip was told over and over again. After returning from Hollywood, Roly & Louise were married on June 25, 1946.  They had five children, 12 grandchildren and three great grandchildren. In 1949, Roly Joined the Dauphin Lions Club.  This was the beginning of a 60 year relationship with Lions and in 1984 he was elected District Governor of 5M12; this was to be his "other" family as we knew it; his Lion's family.  He was a devoted Lions member and served right up until his stroke.  Because of his devotion to Lions, he received many prestigious Lion's awards, was the first Lion elected into the 5M13 Hall of Fame, and helped to organize 17 Lion’s clubs during his term as governor. Before retiring to Souris in 1986, Roly enjoyed many years in the hotel business in Dauphin and Souris, as well as many other business endeavors. In 2007 Roly moved from Souris to Brandon where he resided at Victoria Landing.  He soon became an important part of that family and served as their bartender twice a week - his claim to fame "the oldest bartender in North America", which made the newspapers across the country and aired on CBC news radio. He will be lovingly remembered by his five children, Gary, David (Barb), Doug (Charlene), Janice (Ed Neufeld) and Mark (Marlene), also his 12 grandchildren Greg, Kevin & Corrine, Chris & Jeff (Lori), Megan & Alyssa, Blake, Jill & Katie Neufeld, Shane & Savanna, great grandchildren Brittany & Alex and Tayler, his brother's Reg & Dennis and sister Margaret. Roly was pre-deceased by his wife Louise in 2002. He was loved and respected by all who knew him and will be sorely missed. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at St. Paul’s United Church in Souris, Manitoba on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. followed by fellowship and refreshments in the church auditorium. Kowalchuk’s Funeral Home, Souris is in care of the arrangements. The family would like to express our sincere thanks to the Brandon General Hospital and the Assiniboine Centre for the care dad received. The family wishes to thank all those that who helped in our time of need. A private family service will also be held at Riverside Cemetery in Dauphin at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Roly's memory to the Lions Foundation of Canada Guide Dog program or the Lions Foundation of Manitoba & N. W. Ontario.
Because of you,our own small worldwill never be the same,and all our hearts arefilled with love when people speak your name.But though your facemay not be seenamong us here today,your heart is feltin all the heartsyou changed along the way.

HOWE: Kathleen Margaret “Kae” Howe. Mom passed away quietly November 9th, 2011 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre, almost six years to the day after she lost her beloved husband of 56 years, Bob. Mom was predeceased by her parents Walter and Kathleen Priestner and is survived by her daughter Aileen; son Warren (Jane); son Doug; grandchildren Amy, Andrew, Leah (Justin) and Ben Sorohan, Karen and Alex Howe; and her extended family of relatives. Mom was born on April 2nd, 1924 and she grew up on a small family farm just south- west of Riding Mountain National Park. An only child, young Kathy Priestner grew up in the midst of the Great Depression and her family's struggles during that time left an indelible mark. Mom learned the virtues of hard work, selflessness, thriftiness and common sense – and those lessons would stay with her for the rest of her life. In 1942, during the midst of the Second World War, Kae left home to join the Royal Canadian Air Force. She served her country for three years and remained a very proud veteran and a sympathetic supporter of Canada's troops throughout her life. Kae met Bob in Brandon shortly after the war and they were married in 1949. Two years later, the young couple moved their growing family to the gold mining community of Cochenour, Ontario where they would make their home for over 50 years. Kae was always a very forward thinker. She was a working Mom long before it was fashionable. Kae was a very active member of her community and she took a vested interest in her children's education. Over the years in Cochenour, she developed many lifelong friendships through her loyalty, her thoughtfulness and willingness to listen. In 2005, Bob's failing health precipitated a move back to Brandon, providing Kae with an opportunity to re-connect with friends and relatives she had not seen regularly for years. She forged new relationships during this time as well, particularly with her great-niece Maria and some of the other younger members of her extended family. Kae was always inquisitive and well read. Even in her 70's she was quick to embrace the new technology offered by computers – using email to stay in touch with family and friends and surfing the net for news and other pertinent information. She considered it her obligation as a Grandmother to quiz her grandchildren on all their latest goings on and she followed their lives with keen interest and compassion. Thank you Mom, for all the joy and happiness you have brought to so many people's lives. We will miss your love, your laughter, your counsel and your strength. The family would like to express our sincere thanks to Dr. Butler and his staff at the Brandon Clinic for their compassionate care during Kae's six years in Brandon. A reception for family and friends will be held at the George Brockie Fellowship Centre (south side of Brockie Donovan Funeral Home), 332-8th Street, on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at 12:00 noon. A private family graveside service will take place at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers please consider donations in Kae's name to the Canadian Cancer Society, the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, the Canadian Diabetes Association or a charity of your choice. "Life could not exist without death, nor could the day without the light. All things be they yearly cycles or life times must eventually end, And from endings come new beginnings"
