LILLEY: On July 5, 2014 in extra innings, Lorne Lilley was pulled from the game. Lorne was born in 1934, and grew up in his home town of Rapid City. Lorne married Joanne Ironside in 1960, and together had three children, Sharon, Susan and Robert and two grandsons, Dustin and Dallas. Lorne started working for the creamery in Rapid City. He continued his career in Melita, eventually taking a job with Modern Dairies in Brandon, where he continued until they closed. Lorne finished off his working life employed with Heritage Co-op until his retirement. It was during his retirement when he took up lawn bowling. He took great pride in competing at both the local and provincial levels. Lorne’s love of baseball began at an early age in Rapid City and continued on all of his life as a player and coach. In 1958, through hard work and dedication to the game, he was awarded the opportunity to attend Chicago Cubs Ball Camp in Mesa, Arizona. This rewarding experience not only enriched his game, but later on his coaching skills throughout minor, intermediate and senior league ball. He was extremely proud to have been inducted into the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame. Hockey was also a big part of Lorne’s love of sport, again as both a player and coach. Believing that all kids should have the opportunity to play, he was a strong advocate for hockey at the community centre level. Lorne coached for several years at the East End Community Centre, where his son Rob played. He loved watching his kids play sports and later on his grandsons. Lorne also enjoyed broomball, bowling and ice fishing. Throughout his life, family remained most important to him. He will be greatly missed by his wife Joanne, children Sharon, Susan (Wayne) and Robert, grandsons Dustin (Cory) and Dallas (Jessica). He is also survived by cousins Alva, Mulvey and Vernon. Lorne was predeceased by his mother Marie Rolfe, grandfather, stepfather William (Pop) Rolfe and his two aunts and uncles, Agnes and Gordon Kroft, Laura and Manus Ewing and cousin, Vanetta Struthers. The family invites you to join them at the East End Community Centre to share a memory and a Coke, on Friday, July 11, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. A private interment will take place at a later date.

WEST: Eunice Winnifred Marie West (nee O'Rourke) passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on May 7, 2014. Eunice was born in Bigger, SK June 18, 1932. After her Mother's death, Eunice was educated in Wainwright, AB with the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peterborough. Even in her early years, Eunice's kind and caring concern for others was evident in the loving and motherly way she looked out for her two younger sisters, Betty and Mary. Eunice always loved learning and excelled throughout school. Eunice had always dreamed of becoming a Nurse and realized this dream in graduating from Nursing at the Misericordia Hospital in Winnipeg, MB in 1954. During this time, Eunice's leadership skills and the kindness and caring that were the very basis of her being shone in both her treatment of class mates and others in her personal life. When help was needed, Eunice was always there to listen and to help! Eunice practiced general Nursing in Winnipeg, the West Coast and Ontario before attending the U of Ottawa where she received her Diploma in Public Health. Eunice started with the PHU (Public Health Unit) in North Bay, ON and found her true calling. Eunice's matter-of-fact, common sense and strict sense of caring were her true assets. As a Public Health Nurse, Eunice made a difference to many families and students. Her diligence in searching out those in need made her, at times, the only "Trusted" contact for many. In 1976, Eunice was promoted to Supervisor of Nurses for the NWHU in Kenora, ON. Eunice's negotiating skills helped the Board of Public Health realize the importance of PH Nurses to the health of communities, families and students. Throughout her career, Eunice represented the NWHU on many Boards including the Children's Aid. She was well respected by the Provincial Ministry of Health and often contacted by them on health issues in the North. She belonged to the CWL and spent her "off" hours creating many beautiful gifts from cross stitch and petit point. Upon retiring, Eunice moved to Elliot Lake or "Canada's Northern Florida" as she often referred to it. Here, Eunice, true to her nature, continued to look out for others in her building ensuring all were receiving any care or assistance needed. Eunice was an active member of her building's social committee, taught cross stitch to anyone wanting to learn and expanded her love of crafting. Eunice is survived by her sister Betty Moseley-Williams (Gerald), son Stephen, daughter Anne, grandchildren Carleigh (Jon), Keri (Mandee), Kelsey, and Sarah. Eunice was predeceased by her parents Maurice Cavanaugh and Melinda Anne O'Rourke (nee Bradley), her six brothers and younger sister Mary. A graveside service will be held on Saturday, July 12, 2014 at 11:30 am at St. Norbert Parish Cemetery, 80 St. Pierre Street, St. Norbert, Manitoba. A Celebration of Life will follow at the St. Norbert Arts Centre. In lieu of flowers, donations made in Eunice's memory to the Alzheimer's Society of Canada would be appreciated.
