WOODMAN: Ken passed away peacefully on October 8, 2010 at Fairview Home with his family at his side. Ken was born in Winnipeg on February 11th, 1930 to Walter and Jean Woodman. He grew up in Fort Frances, Ontario and spent as much time as possible at the family cottage on Rainy Lake. Ken completed high school in Fort Frances and then followed his older sister Evelyn, into medicine. He had two years of pre-med studies at the University of Manitoba under his belt when he qualified to serve in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. Following a summer posting on the Rhine in 1954, he returned to Winnipeg to complete his medical studies and to marry Norma. Ken and Norma were married on Dec. 28th, 1954. Ken received his MD in 1956 and Dr. Woodman spent three years at a busy family practice clinic in Fort Frances. Drawn to Internal Medicine, he undertook four years of postgraduate training to earn credentials in that specialty. Ken's next move took him to the Brandon Clinic. During his 13 years in full-time practice at the Clinic, he served on its Management Committee, and as Medical Staff President at the Brandon General Hospital. By 1977, Ken had developed an interest in Dermatology, which he decided to pursue at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. In 1982, he qualified in that discipline as a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada. Ken acted as visiting dermatologist at Southland Hospital in New Zealand for 2 years. In 1992, he returned to the country for a 3-month locum. In 1993, he took to the seas with Norma for four months as Ship's Doctor serving passengers and crew for the Norwegian Cruise Line. Between 1994 and 1999, as often as six times each year, he replaced family practice physicians in underserved and remote areas of Manitoba. Ken loved flying and piloted his own plane for pleasure and business for a number of years. He took great interest in following the trends in automobiles and aircraft. He enjoyed traveling with Norma and in walking the Assiniboine River Valley and the Brandon Hills with Norma and the family dog. Ken was predeceased by his parents, brother Walter, and sister Evelyn Fox. He is survived by his wife Norma and their six children; Patti (Dick), David (Margie), Jim, Bart (Debra), Sharon (Marc), Susan (David) and fifteen grandchildren. Cremation has taken place.

TYERMAN: Arthur (Art) Ernest; March 15, 1922 - October 12, 2010. Born in Dauphin, Manitoba, Art was a farmer’s son who left the prairies to join the forces and fight in WW2. Upon his return, with his Scottish bride Catherine Stewart, Art took his first step into the trucking industry and never looked back. He bought a truck and started hauling logs in the bush of Northern Saskatchewan, where, for many winters, Catherine (Scottie) joined him as the camp cook. Art was a ‘trucker’ (transport driver) all of his working life; he was fortunate to find his passion and truly enjoyed his work. He met lots of people and travelled many miles over his life time, while ‘Scottie’ held the fort at home raising their three children, Gordon, Margaret, and Sheila. He and ‘Scottie’ had a good life, both challenging and rewarding. At his retirement they moved back to the country, to an acreage in Kemnay where he continued to tinker with vehicles and equipment and watch the semis travelling down the highway. He said his best TV show was his view of the highway out his front window. Art is predeceased by his wife Catherine, son Gordon, daughter-in-law Donna, brothers Ralph and Raymond, his Father Jack and Mother Hilda. He will be greatly missed by his daughters Margaret Tyerman and Sheila Reynolds (Barry), grandchildren Jason, Amber, Christen, Alissa, and Bradley, his ten great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends. Art will be remembered for his capacity as ‘Mr. Fixit’ and finding a use for everything. He will also be remembered for his stories, of the war, of the prairies in the early days, and of the many adventures he had throughout his life. If a song was dedicated to Art it might be one of Frank Sinatra’s tunes … ‘I Did it My Way’. That he did and he did it well. A graveside service will be held at the Brandon Cemetery on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. with Arlene Robertson officiating. Donations in memory of Art may be made to a charity of choice.

Distance never separates hearts that really care. For memory spans the miles and, in seconds we are there. We hear your voice, we see you smile, and deep inside we know, that you remain a part of us wherever we may go. So we can visit anytime, no matter when or where, For distance never separates hearts that really care. God knew the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb. So, He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered. Peace Be Thine.

JOHNSON: Anna Marjorie. Peacefully on October 2, 2010, Marjorie Johnson passed away in her home At Mission Villas in Kelowna, British Columbia. Left to cherish her memory are her daughter Kathy Johnson (Jeff Lawson), sons David (Lori) Johnson and Tom (Evelyn) Johnson and grandchildren Tyler, Kyle, Mattie, Sarah, Piper, Christopher, Nicholas, Turner, Madison, daughter- in-law Lea Johnson and many friends and relatives. Marjorie was born in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba to Hazel and David Lyon. After obtaining her RN designation in Portage and OR surgery certification in Montreal, Marjorie moved to Flin Flon, Manitoba, to be the Head Nurse at the mining hospital. It was in Flin Flon where she met her husband, Orlie Johnson. As Orlie and Marjorie started their family, Marjorie reduced her work hours and eventually stayed home full-time to raise her 3 children and support her husband’s growing career. Orlie’s career took Marjorie to several communities including Kenora, Fort William, Winnipeg, Neepawa, Rivers, Brandon and Edmonton. To celebrate their retirement in 1990, Marjorie and Orlie moved to Summerland, BC to enjoy a warmer climate and a longer golf season. The love of family and her cottage at Kerr’s Lake brought Marjorie and Orlie back to Manitoba. It was in Minnedosa that Marjorie enjoyed her last years with Orlie. Following Orlie’s passing, Marjorie moved to Kelowna to be closer to family. Marjorie’s husband, children and grandchildren were the most important things in her life. Her love and support of her family was unconditional. Kerr’s Lake was Marjorie’s favourite place. It was her stable home for over 35 years; the place she returned every summer. At the lake, she enjoyed her long-time “lake” friends as they played bocchi, enjoyed walks, the odd golf game, after dinner drinks and cards at night. She also enjoyed the humming birds, loons and nibbles! Marjorie’s blunt and unapologetic personality is a characteristic we will remember fondly. Mom, it has been through your unconditional love and commitment that we are the strong individuals we are today. We can only hope that we are the devoted parents to our children that you were to us. We love you and will miss you. A Celebration Lunch for Marjorie will occur on Saturday, November 13, 2010 at 12:00 p.m. at the Minnedosa Legion with Rev. Garry MacDowall officiating. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be sent to the Minnedosa Community Childcare Cooperative, Box 1108, Minnedosa, Manitoba, R0J 1E0.

HUNTER (nee Drul): On September 25th, 2010, after a spirited battle with cancer, Gloria Anne Hunter left this world to enter into the kingdom of heaven, peacefully at home. Gloria was born August 3rd, 1955, second child to Nestor and Anne of Elphinstone. She grew up in the farming way of life, and loved everything associated with it. After graduating in 1973, she moved from home to seek work in B.C., then later, Alberta. On June 29th, 1974, she married Jack Hunter, and they resided in Edmonton where, on April 11th, 1976, Jason Brian was born. They then moved back to Elphinstone in March of the following year, and Bradley John was born on May 23rd, 1978. Gloria was very involved in the community. She worked in town, and was part of several committees. In 1987, she accepted Jesus as her Saviour, and soon after was very active at Calvary Gospel Church with their Sunday School. Hundreds of children came through the doors during this 23 year program. Through this ministry, other doors opened, including Family Aide, and later, foster parenting. Gloria’s love for everyone she helped was genuine, but she never wanted any glory for herself, just to help whoever needed helping. In April of 2006, Gloria received the dreaded news that she had cancer. Days later, her first grandson, Ethan, was born. Parker followed shortly after, in 2007, with Cole arriving in 2008. It was her love of these precious gifts, as well as her unwavering faith, that she stayed with her family for another 4 1/2 years. Gloria is survived by her husband, Jack, sons Jason (Bev), and Brad (Nicole), as well as grandchildren Ethan, Parker, and Cole. She is also survived by her parents, Nestor and Anne, siblings Larry, Ron, Jerry (Melinda), and Darlene, as well as sister-in-law Brenda, brothers-in-law Carman (Joan), Grant, and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by mother-in-law Vera and father-in-law Hubert. Rae’s Funeral Service looked after arrangements, with Pastor Nathaniel Picklyk presiding over the funeral service. Pallbearers were Jeremy Drul, Dustin Drul, Derek Hunter, Chase Hunter, Wilfred Lessey, and Alex Lessey. Interment followed at The Bend Cemetery. If friends so desire, please donate to CancerCare Manitoba and/or Hamiota Community Cancer Program.
