TEASDALE: Stanley Vernon Teasdale, February 20, 1930 - July 14, 2011. After a brief battle with cancer, and with Ruth and his girls surrounding him, Stan entered into rest at the Hamiota Health Centre on July 14th, 2011. Born Stanley Vernon, he was the youngest of the five children of Robert and Lydia (Wells) Teasdale of Kelloe. Stan attended school there until moving to Winnipeg to finish his schooling. On October 7, 1961, Stan married Ruth Russett of Birtle. They farmed at Isabella, and raised two daughters, Lesli and Laurie. Farming was Stan’s love in life and he was always very proud of his crops. Stan retired from farming, renting his land out for several years. Last October, after many years of raising kids, cattle, chickens, cats, dogs and an occasional beaver in the slough east of the yard, Stan reluctantly moved off the farm. The purchase of a new home in Miniota excited his children and grandchildren who were ecstatic to have him only blocks away. Eventually, after realizing their frequently visited house was on the grandkids route from school he admitted that town life wasn’t so bad! Stan loved sports. In younger years he played ball and hockey. He also enjoyed going with Charlie Nichol to Charlie’s boy’s hockey games. Curling and golf followed later in life. Camping and fishing became a family event when the girls got old enough. Years later, when the rinks got too cold and the rocks too heavy, Stan and Ruth became armchair curlers and began attending the Labatt Briars. The yearly excursions with Doug and Shirley Heise always resulted in many good times, and many new friends. A proud member of the Manitoba Pool Elevators, and a member of the Isabella Rink Committee, Stan could often be found flooding water for the skating ice or working in the booth at the sports days. He was quick with a smile and a joke and was often discovered to be the instigator of many practical jokes. His sense of humour has been inherited by each of his daughters and grand daughters and the sparkle of his eye is often mirrored in theirs. Stan will be sadly missed by many nephews, nieces, friends and neighbours. He loved a good visit and Lawn’s shop was one of his favourite places to do so. Many Saturday nights were spent around three tables in the Teasdale living room, all pushed together to accommodate the friends who were often invited to play cards late into the night. Stan is survived by Ruth, his wife of 49 years. Also his daughter Lesli, son in law Bill, grand daughter Molly and his daughter Laurie, son in law Raymond and grand daughters Ashley, Robyn, Nicole and Riley. No one’s smile was ever as bright as his was on the day each of his grand daughters was born. Interment and Celebration of Life took place Monday, July 18th, 2011. In lieu of flowers the family wish that donations be made to the Miniota Fire Department or the charity of your choice. Campbell Funeral Home, Hamiota were in care of arrangements.
Rest in PeaceWe will love you until the day after forever.

SNELL: April 22, 1920 – July 24, 2011. Theodore “Ted” Sidney Snell was born on April 22, 1920 in Winnipeg to Percy and Phyllis Snell (nee Head-Rapson). Ted was the third child born, brother Gilbert and sister Hilda were older, while Phyllis was his younger sister. The family moved to a farm near Monominto east of Winnipeg in 1925. Hardships resulted in the family relocating in 1929 to Rhodes Siding where they settled on the “vast and empty” prairie near Ninga. Another move in 1935 to the Saunder’s District meant family outings to Killarney and Rolla, ND. Growing up,Ted attended school at Sanders School when not helping his dad working hard on the land. It was at this time that Ted and his father Percy broke cattle for draft animals and tried a three wheeled Case tractor until they acquired more horses. At 21 years of age Ted joined his brother Gilbert in enlisting in the Canadian Military during WWII. He served his country from 1941 to 1945 in various parts of England. Once, while driving a Sherman Tank in a convoy to transport trucks he was being directed by a driver who was standing in the cab of his truck. Upon recognizing him, Ted beeped the siren and startled a surprised Perry Coder of Killarney. After the war, Ted was able to purchase his own farm (Edmund Lillew homestead) through the Veterans Land Act. He worked the land with horses and then a John Deere tractor. Ted was intent on establishing a prosperous and productive farm. The main entertainment was dances and card parties during this time. It was at a pie social that he met his wife – which resulted in over 60 years of marriage. On June 13, 1951 Ted married Verna Irene Sutton. Ted had four cows while Verna had one so they were in the milking business. The next year, they had five heifer calves, doubling the herd. Together they enjoyed farming and raised three children – Clarke, Robert and Colleen on Willow Farm. Ted was employed by Turtle Mountain School District as a custodian from 1971 – 1979. They sold the farm in 1975 but retained 40 acres and kept a few cattle until they eventually moved to Killarney in 1983. Ted was a proud member of the Killarney Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. Each year he joined the November 11 Remembrance Day service to honour those with whom he had served. Ted suffered poor health, having heart trouble in 1983 and 1990. He never let his health problems bring him down but was determined to work through them. He lived a healthy lifestyle by walking daily and enjoyed the camaraderie of taking part in the senior games and his coffee crew. Ted enjoyed golfing when he first retired. He also enjoyed his yard and garden, and often had some project on the go in his workshop whether it was bird houses or just keeping things in good repair. Ted is predeceased by his brother Gilbert and sister Phyllis Beebe. He leaves to mourn his loving wife of sixty years Verna, his son Clarke and Gwen (nee Bullion), grandson Murray, granddaughter Elizabeth and Jason Vanstone and great grandson Aiden; son Robert; daughter Colleen and Gerald Renaud, granddaughter Jacqueline and grandson Eric. He also leaves to mourn his sister Hilda Scrutton, numerous nieces and nephews, and extended family and friends. “We shall miss your great smile, outgoing attitude and chuckles.” Funeral service was held on Friday July 29, 2011 at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Killarney, Manitoba.

Following in his father’s footsteps, he became a second- generation Funeral Director at Smith Funeral Home. Blayne was a kind and gentle man, providing total commitment and compassion to the many families he served over the years. Dad’s life was not all work and no play: his greatest love was family. He truly was a loving husband, father, father-in-law, grampa and brother. His greatest joys revolved around his families’ achievements and day-to-day activities. Dad delighted in hearing of his grandchildren’s many activities as well as the highlights and goals reached by each of his three children and their families. The memories of Dad will easily surface when we see his children and grandchildren carrying on with their lives. Dad looked forward to cottage life and his many lake friends. In the fall, he loved to hunt with his buddies and these outings provided a special bond between Paul and Dad. He also looked forward to the summer “get togethers” that reunited his early childhood friends. In the course of his life, Dad never took for granted the everlasting value of the friendships provided to both he and Mom. His happy smile, his great wit and humour, and the love of a good time with friends and family will remain in our memories.
