COUSINS: Douglas Kim. It is with great sadness that the family of Kim Cousins announces his sudden passing on December 25, 2009, at the Southeast Integrated Center in Moosomin, Saskatchewan. Kim was born in Elkhorn, Manitoba on April 29, 1954 to Douglas and Irene Cousins. He was the oldest of five children. Kim grew up on a farm west of Elkhorn. He attended Mossgiel School up to Grade five, when it closed and then graduated from Elkhorn School in 1972with a grade 12 education. After graduation Kim continued his education at the University of Manitoba where he received a Diploma in Agriculture in 1974. On April 24, 1976 Kim married Connie Rookesof Manson, Manitoba. Together they raised four children; Jennifer, Jeffery, Scott, and Stephanie. They lived on the farm together for 33 years and enjoyed grain farming and raising cattle until Kim’s passing. Farming was not really a job for Kim,it was truly what he loved to do. When farming got tough Kim joined the Manitoba Operators Engineers Union Local #987 and began to seek work off the farm in winters. He worked as a track hoe operator for many different companies over the years. This took him away from home often, but his heart was still in Elkhorn. Kim was a very outdoor kind of guy and so this led him to enjoy many outdoor activities; he loved to hunt and fish. There was always a story to go along with every trip. He also had an interest in ski-doing and curling in the winter and ball in the summer. Kim’s life revolved around his family. He loved to take the kids up north for the spring fishing trip and to hunt with the boys in the fall. Every spring and fall there was an annual trip to the creek for an old fashioned weinerroast. He loved spending time each of his children and working beside them on whatever project they were doing. In 2001 Kim and Connie were blessed with their first two grandchildren and Kim’s life took on a new focus. He spent every spare moment he had teaching them the country way of life. They spent many hours riding in tractors and combines with him, or feeding the cows with the bike. Kim always looked forward to harvest and the picnic meals in the field; that’s when he got to let the kids play in the back of the grain truck or just lay in the straw. Kim was a loving son, a great husband, an extraordinary father, and a devoted grandfather. He will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by his parents Doug and Irene; his wife Connie; his children Jennifer (Rob) Chant, Jeffery (Lorae); Scott (Jennifer); Stephanie (Steven) Malcolm; his precious grandchildren Sean and Sara Chant; Austin and Alexandra Cousins; Addison Cousins, Little Kim Malcolm. Funeral services were held on December 30, 2009 at Trinity United Church in Elkhorn, followed by Interment at Woodville Cemetery. Officiating Minister was Joan Rennie-Laing. Arrangements were entrusted to G. R. Carscadden Funeral Chapel.
Love lives on forever –in the memories, in the stories, in the hearts of all whose lives have been touched by a very special person -- Kim Cousins!

SCARROW: The death of Orville Garnet Scarrow, formerly of Rivers, Manitoba, occurred at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Wednesday, December 30, 2009 at the age of 90 years. Garnet was born on November 23, 1919 in Arcola, Saskatchewan the son of Edward and Margaret (nee Hay) Scarrow. Garnet attended school at Spy Hill and Crosby. He was in the Services for fiveyears with the Fort Garry Horse through France, Belgium, The Netherlands andNorthwest Europe. Upon his return he started farming west of Binscarth in early 1946. Later that year he married Muriel White of Binscarth. He drove the school van for about two years, while they were in Binscarth. Sons Brian and Wayne were born there. They then moved to Brandon where Garnet worked for the C.P.R., then the City of Brandon. Daughter Kim and son Ross were born in Brandon. In 1961 they moved to Rivers where he worked at the Canadian Armed Forces base as a stationary engineer. Dad was a baseball coach for many years, while Wayne and Ross were growing up and we were forever going out of town for a baseball tournament, Dad liked his curling. Dad and Mom loved to go out to the Rivers Legion on a Saturday night dancing and spending time with their friends. Before Mom took sick, there were manyfamily get-togethers with aunts, uncles, cousins (Grandparents in Winnipeg) in Binscarth, Foxwarren and Brandon. They also would come to Rivers where we lived at different farmhouses. We all spent time at the lake swimming, fishing and barbecuing. Dad was predeceased by Mom who fought hard and lost her battle to cancer in 1968. We remember that day; either by her side at the hospital, or were home for Thanksgiving supper when the phone call came. In April, 1969, Garnet married Ilene Matheson (Robinson) of Binscarth and she had three sons, Grant, Glenn and Robert. In 1971 the Rivers base closed at which time he was then employed at the B.M.H.C. and ACC as a stationary engineer. He was then employed at the Canadian Forces base in Portage while residing at Rivers, coming home on his days off until his retirement. Dadand Mom would take their camper down to the lake and park it for the summer,there would be lots of fishing, boat rides and grandchildren could be found hanging out. In years past, Dad could be found down at the Legion variousnights playing crib with his friends and until as late as this summer, taking on Brandon and Bradley trying to beat Grandpa at a game. Dad enjoyed a good "game of crib". Dad was a life member at the Royal Canadian Legion #75 Rivers for 65 years where he volunteered for the weekly bingo for over 20 years. Garnet continued to attend Fort Garry Horse reunions until age began to take its toll. He saw his Regiment for the last time in November of 2005 where he was the Guest of Honour. Sixty five years ago, Garnet was one of more than 15,000 Canadians who stormed June Beach in Normandy, France on D-Day. On August 31, 1946 Garnet received the "Belgian Croix Du Guerre with Leaf" for Bravery in the operation north of the Antwerp-Turnhout Canal on 28th of September, 1944. The citation reads "In every action this Non-Commissioned Officer gave evidence of not only considerable fighting ability and skill but complete disregard for his own safety in his efforts to get the job done." Special thanks to the Honour Guards who attended, we appreciate all the kind words and memories you have shared with us. You have made us even more proud of our father, grandfather and great- grandfather. Viewing for family and friends was held at Memories Chapel, 330-18th Street North, Tuesday, January 5, 2010.

After many years of moving throughout the province with the Hydro, mom and dad settled in Carroll in 1969. The “farm” is home for the children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and many friends. Mom was a very unselfish person and the well being of her family always came first. We thank her with all out hearts for her loving guidance and direction in life. Mom, you will be dearly missed by all near and far. Service was held at the United Church in Souris on December 29, 2009 and a summer interment of her ashes will take place in Carroll, Manitoba and Swan River, Manitoba. Donations in Sharon’s memory can be made to the Children’s Hospital in Winnepeg or Souris Hospital Foundation.
When I’m GoneWhen I come to the endof my journey and I travelmy last weary mile,Just forget if you can,that I ever frowned andremember only the smile.Forget unkind wordsI have spoken,Remember some goodthat I have done.Forget that I everhad heartache,and remember that I’vealso had fun.Remember I have fought some hard battles and won,ere the close of the day,Then forget to grievefor my going,I would not have you sadfor a day,But in summer just gather some flowers and remember the place where I lay,And come in the shadeof evening when the sun points the sky in the west,Stand for a few momentsbeside me and rememberonly my best.
