SMITH: Our Mom, Elna Ruby Rose Smith was born at the height of the dirty 30s on June 3, 1933 on the family farm near Carroll, Manitoba and passed from this earthly home in Richmond, B.C. on a beautiful spring like day, February 6, 2012. Mom has gone to join our Dad, George Bremner Smith who passed in 1999, and they can now travel to all those far away and exotic places that she had dreamed of seeing. Mom is pre-deceased by her parents Charles and Clara Fowell, sisters Ivy Barrett and Alice Melnyk and brother Bud Fowell. Mom is survived by her son Fred Smith, daughter-in-law Leona, daughter Karen Dawydiak, son-in-law Steve and her grandchildren Erin, Carly, Levi, Emily and Alec, and her great grandchildren Owen, Danica and Dominic, her sisters Amy Rollins and May Culbertson and her brother Ernie (Therese) Fowell, sister-in-laws Marg Fowell and Catherine (Ken) Rasmussen and lots of very special nieces and nephews. Mom worked all her life but her greatest joy came from helping out, whether it was with Little Friends Preschool, cooking hotdogs at Westwind Elementary School and or being Treasurer with the Richmond Ravens (RGIH), she enjoyed the connection with the community and watching her grandkids play hockey and ball. Thanks so much to an angel here on earth, Dr. Chee and the team at Richmond Hospital ER and 2 North for their comfort and care and to our many friends that continue along this road with us.

FORD: Leslie Scott Ford, our beloved father and grandfather, died suddenly on February 2, 2012 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, at the age of 73. Born in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1938, Les crossed the Atlantic to work for the Hudsons Bay Company when he was 17. He spent several years working at, and managing, posts all over Labrador, Quebec and Ontario before marrying Shirley (née Hickerson), the woman he loved for 46 years until her death from cancer in 2011. After Shirley passed away, Les moved from Dauphin, Manitoba to Brandon, Manitoba to be near his youngest son Derek, and his wife Joanne and their daughter Sofia. Thanks to them, his books, and his wee terrier Tansi, he lived peacefully and happily as he recovered from his untiring support during Shirleys long illness. A gentle man, thoughtful and considerate, wary of the judgemental and of those who claim certainty, Les accepted people at face value and made all feel at ease. A proud Mason, Les took great satisfaction in his charity work with the Shrine. A proud Scot, he esteemed Robert Burns poetry, roared with laughter at Billy Connollys comedy, and beamed with pride listening to his son Alan play the bagpipes. A proud grandfather, Les delighted in his grandchildren as they grew and encouraged their curiosity about the world, made them laugh, and listened attentively to their stories. Les spent the last three weeks of his life in Scotland, with his sisters and their husbands. Les adored his sisters and in his travel pictures, sincere joy emanates from his face. We all take comfort knowing how happy he was to return to his home for a visit. Les is survived by his three sons and their families, Lyle, Lisa and grandson Malcolm; Alan, Gillian, and grandson Graeme; Derek, Joanne and granddaughters Sofia and Freya; his sisters and their families, Vera and Bill Beattie; Alison and George Manson; his large extended family; and an even larger community of friends. A service celebrating his life will be held at 1:00 p.m., Friday, February 10, 2012 at Central United Church, 327 8th Street, Brandon, Manitoba with Rev. Larry McPhail officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Avenue, Room ON1160, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3E 0V9 in memory of Shirley Ford.
