SICHEWSKI: It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband and father, Walter Sichewski, on April 22, 2015 at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the age of 70 years. Walter was born and raised on the family farm north of Sandy Lake on June 21, 1944. He was no stranger to hard work, having spent his youth milking cows, working the fields, picking stones and doing everything to help out on the farm. For extra money, he used to trap muskrats and the odd fox or coyote and sell the furs. Some of the places and jobs his journey took him to was cutting ice and packing ice houses all over Manitoba, working in Thompson for the nickel mine, California in a tungsten mine, cat train in Northern Manitoba and Ontario and on the oil rigs in Fort McMurray to name a few. But you couldn’t take the farm boy out of him; he returned back home to Manitoba in 1974 where he acquired machinery and land to start farming full time. In 1989, he entered municipal politics, becoming a councillor in Ward 4 for the RM of Park (formerly LGD of Park) where he proudly held that position until December 31, 2014, serving 25 years. He served on various boards both in the community of Sandy Lake and for the RM of Park. In 1993, with the support of the Sandy Lake Rec Association, Walter spearheaded and organized the first annual Sandy Lake Children’s Fish Derby. Being an avid fisherman himself, he wanted to instill the love of fishing in local youth. He continued to host the derby for the next 16 years. In late 2006, he was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, where over the years he endured rounds of chemotherapy and bouts of hospital stays. He was determined not to let this disease get the better of him, so he continued to live life to the fullest. Anyone who knew Walter would know that farming, family, friends and politics were what made him happy. He was always up for a good “discussion” at family functions or in the coffee shop. Left to cherish wonderful memories are his loving wife of 33 years, Linda, children Sara (Ryan), Mark and Aaron, brothers Mike (Laverne), Ernie, Marvin (Veronica), Danny, Boris (Valerie), David (Diane), Chris (Diane), sister Elizabeth, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, William and Ann, brother Brian, sister Eileen, nephew Eric, brothers-in-law Victor and John and sister-in-law, Stella. Prayers were held on Tuesday, April 28, 2015. Funeral service was held on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 at the Sandy Lake Community Hall, with Deacon Conrad Plante officiating. Interment followed at the Sandy Lake Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Avenue, Room ON1160, Winnipeg, MB, R3E 0V9 or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Unit 3-824-18th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 5B7. The family wishes to thank the doctors and staff at CancerCare Manitoba, Westman CancerCare, BRHC Day Treatment for their years of support, care and compassion, BRHC hospital staff, Minnedosa hospital staff, Winnipeg EMS and doctors and staff at Health Sciences Centre.

JOHNSTON: Florence (nee Boyd, formerly McLennan) Johnston. With sadness, but with the sense of a full and long life complete, the family announces the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt, peacefully at her residence, Valleyview Care Centre, on Monday, April 27, 2015, at the age of 95 years. Flo was born on the family farm south of Brandon on January 24, 1920, the third of four children born to William and Sarah Boyd. She grew up on the farm attending Cornwallis school and continued to live there after marrying John (Jack) McLennan in 1942. While living on the farm, their three children, Andrew, Colin, and Sandra, were born. After Jack's sudden death in 1962, Flo moved the family into Brandon where she resided the remainder of her life. Knowing that she was now the sole provider for her family, she made the brave choice to return to school at MIT in Winnipeg (now Red River College) to obtain her LPN diploma, while commuting home to Brandon on weekends. After graduation, Flo worked on A2 at the Assiniboine Centre until her retirement in 1985. In her "retirement" years, she spent many hours caring for and loving her grandchildren. She was so proud of them! Flo was happy to find another life partner when she met widower Tom Johnston from Griswold, Manitoba. They married in 1967. She and Tom worked together for many hours on Tom's farm at Griswold while continuing to live and work in Brandon. Flo was a down to earth person who was never afraid of hard work, faced life's challenges head on and kept moving forward. During their 28 years together, Tom and Flo were able to enjoy a few trips with the highlight being the one to the Holy Land. After Tom's death in 1996, Flo moved from the house on 4th Street to a suite and finally to Valleyview in 2011, when decreasing mobility and independence necessitated the move and where she received compassionate TLC for the past 3 1/2 years. Flo loved her family and would do anything for them. She never hesitated to join a family gathering and especially enjoyed hopping in her little blue car to come out when pizza was on order! Well into her 80's she was still making a complete roast beef dinner weekly for family. It was to her great disappointment and sadness when she gave up driving at the age of 91 and could no longer pick up her friends for church. For many years, she looked forward to walking over to McDonald's in the evening for coffee with friends and neighbours. Flo also had a great love for her church "family" at Bethel Christian Assembly where she was a lifelong member and tireless supporter. She spent countless hours over the years involved in activities and volunteering in various capacities within Bethel. It was her strong faith in God that held her up and never wavered through many difficult times including the death of Jack, Tom, and her sons. Flo is survived by daughter Sandra (Barry) Chernos, step-daughter Judy Curtis and her family as well as grandchildren and great grandchildren Brett Chernos, Courtney Chernos, Rachel McLennan-Sakagami and family, Cameron McLennan and Mark (Liane) Johnston; Jae, Brenna and Gracie. Mark's mother Janet Loewen, nieces, nephews and extended family also remain. She was predeceased by her parents, husbands Jack McLennan and Tom Johnston, sons Colin McLennan (1975), Andy McLennan (1983) and step-son Stan Johnston (2008). She was also predeceased by sister Aileen Hassan, brother and sister-in-law Stewart (Stella) Boyd and sister and brother-in-law Mel (Doug) Shepherd. In keeping with Flo's strong Christian faith she has lived an honorable life, fought a good fight and finished the race. She can hear clearly now, is free of arthritis and pain, clear of mind and safe in the arms of Jesus. A memorial service preceded by a private interment attended by family at Rosewood Memorial Gardens was held on May 4, 2015 at Memories Chapel with Pastor Mike Davis of Bethel Christian Assembly officiating. Pallbearers were: Barry Chernos, Brett Chernos, Mark Johnston, Bruce Preston, Albert Krahn and Dale Colquhoun. All others in attendance were considered honourary pallbearers.Psalm 23:4&6"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil...... I will dwell in the house of the lord forever."The family would like to thank Pastor Mike Davis who officiated the service, Eulogist Pastor Charles Remple, Organist Marilyn Phillips, Hymn leader Phil Price for his special touch, Kerrie Gibbs for the beautiful solo and all the pallbearers. Also thank you to Vern Schneider and staff at Memories Chapel for their caring direction with planning and conducting the celebration of Flo's Life. Thank you to all who attended the service and shared personal memories as well as to those who conveyed messages of sympathy, sent cards, food, flowers, other tributes and memorial donations. A very special thank you to the staff at Valleyview Care Centre and Dr. Caplan for the kind, patient, compassionate care given to Flo while she was a resident.

DEVRIEZE: Shirley Martha Devrieze (nee Didur). Peacefully on Friday, April 12, 2015 Shirley Devrieze of Brandon passed away at the age of 78 years. She was the eldest child of Joseph and Margaret Didur and was predeceased by her father.

Born on March 16, 1937 in Portage La Prairie, she graduated from Portage Collegiate Institute in 1955 then went away to secretarial school shortly afterwards. She then worked as a receptionist at Dr. Bonar’s office in Deloraine, Manitoba. It is there where she met her husband to be Arthur Devrieze. They married in 1958 and in the following years celebrated the birth of their beloved daughters, Darlene in 1962 and Jo-Anne in 1965. Shirley was a very talented artist and craftsperson. Among her favourites were painting, quilting, needlepoint, pottery, Belgian Lace and Pysanka (the traditional Ukrainian art of Easter egg painting) She was quite accomplished and received numerous awards. Her works were displayed at many museums, art galleries and professional offices throughout Manitoba. She excelled at her arts and taught her daughters what excellence truly meant as she passed these skills on to them as well as her grand children and others while teaching art classes. In doing so she became a major influence in many lives. A wonderful mother, daughter, grandmother, wife, sister, aunt and friend, family was the most important thing of all in her life. She cared for the senior members of her family and dedicated hours of craft time with the younger members. Summers spent at the family cottage at Delta beach, baby-sitting grand children, and family holidays provided her with treasured memories. In her final years Shirley looked forward to the spring with all of the birds and creatures that visited on her patio. Summer days were spent at the apartment complex pool with her daughter and granddaughter. Many have been touched by Shirley and will miss her terribly. Shirley was very active in the area of self-improvement and would always look for ways to do so including taking yoga courses, tai chi and meditation classes to name a few. She even enrolled in a basic maintenance automotive class and did well. Diagnosed with cancer in 2011 her life changed considerably. She battled the disease and constantly searched for ways to improve her situation. Her immediate family came to her aid, and devoted their time to comforting and nurturing her throughout the entire course of her illness. Also, in her final years through the Primetime program at Fairview she would meet her special friend Joe Dutchak who brought her continuous love and support in aid of her battle. The family would like to thank the doctors and staff of the Palliative Care Ward at the Assiniboine Centre, Brandon General Hospital, the Western Medical Clinic, the Cancer Care Team of both Brandon and Winnipeg as well as the Home Care Team for all of their love, support and compassion. The family would also like to thank all of the various people, organizations and compassionate members of the community who reached out to Shirley in her times of need. Shirley’s funeral service was held at McKenzies Funeral Chapel on Friday, April 17th in Portage La Prairie.

As expressions of sympathy, if friends so wish, donations may be made in Shirley’s memory to the Brandon Palliative Care, 150 McTavish Ave. E, Brandon, MB R7A 2B3 or the Canadian Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook St, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 9Z9.
