ARMITAGE: It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Eric Rodney (Rick) Armitage on February 19, 2010 at his home at Rutledge, Manitoba. Rick had his 63rd birthday on February 15th. He was the first child of Ivan and Irene Armitage. Rick grew up in the valley with his Armitage cousins just down the road. He went to school in Miniota and belonged to 4H Beef and Potato Clubs. Rick married Elaine Atwood in 1968 and Caroline Dawn was born on May 26th, 1969. Caroline married Brad Thompson and they have a daughter Brooke Magdelene. Later Rick and Elaine divorced and on November 4 1989 Rick married Linda (Sommerville) Brown. Linda has two daughters, Michelle Brown and Carolyn Robertson and five grandchildren. Ricks most enjoyable job was driving a truck. He sold real estate for a while but soon was back truck driving. Over the years he drove through most of the States and all of Canada. He had many stories of his experiences on the road. When he was told he had cancer he knew he wouldnt be driving again. It was a heart-breaking day when his truck left the yard without him. Rick was predeceased by his Dad, Ivan, just two years ago. It is comforting to know they are together again. His Armitage aunts and uncles and grandparents have all passed on. Also his Hooper grandparents, Aunt Ethel and Uncle Gordon Stewart, and his Uncle Ron Hooper.He was also predeceased by his cousins, Donna Marie Stewart and Ralph Stewart. A year ago his cousin Caitlyn Arksey lost her battle with cancer. Rick leaves several cousins, nieces and nephews. Left to mourn his passing are his wife Linda and her family. His Mom, Irene, sisters Arlene and Debra, and brother Doug (Doreen), Brother in law Joss March and his family, and special Aunt Joan Hooper in Victoria. Rick will always be loved and missed so much. His illness and passing leaves a void in our family that will never be filled. There is comfort in knowing he is free of the pain of cancer and that he is at peace. Ricks graveside memorial service will be held at a later date in the Miniota Cemetery.

BRIDGEMAN: Jean M.A. Bridgeman, September 26, 1932 March 27, 2010. It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Jean Margaret Audrey Bridgeman. Jean was born on September 26, 1932 in Coton, Sudbury, Derbyshire, England. In 1947¸ Jean moved to Oak River Manitoba with her family. On November 12, 1949 Jean was united in marriage to Tom Bridgeman in Oak River, Manitoba. Soon after marriage, Jean and Tom started a family. Jean had many great accomplishments in life, her family of four sons was her greatest; Ron (Sandi), Garry (Grace), Brian (Lottie) and Cameron (Louise). As years past, the size of her family grew. Jean was blessed with 9 grandchildren: Dana (Pat), Heather (James), Scott, Jodi (Jason), Chad (Crystal), Russell (Jessica), Susan, Donald and Christie. Her life was blessed yet again as she was proudly declared a great grandmother of 5 great grandchildren: Piper, Blaire, Myla, Dexton and Kohen. Jean was predeceased by her parents Richard (Dick) and Audrey Griffiths and her granddaughter Jodi Bridgeman-Forbes. Jean and Tom work side by side to develop and build a successful and prosperous farm in Oak River, Manitoba. Jean was well known for driving and operating equipment as required, as well as for catching grain on the fly whenever Tom needed a helping hand. Upon retirement in 1987, Jean and Tom moved to British Columbia. While in BC, the life of golf and fishing occupied their time when they were not on the road visiting family and friends. The need to be closer to family had Jean and Tom once again settle in Oak River, Manitoba in 1993. Jean and Toms current residence was in Brandon, Manitoba. Brandon serves as the perfect central location for family get-togethers and the ideal day trip in the car to visit children and grandchildren in Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta.

TIMMONS: Keith Emmerson Timmons passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 23, 2010 in Brandon surrounded by his family. Keith was born on September 14, 1932 in Carnduff, SK to Thomas and Helen Timmons. He grew up on the family farm where he developed an outstanding work ethic from a young age, an example set by his parents for whom Keith had an enormous amount of love and respect. Family was very important to Keith and he enjoyed reading about his family history. On March 5, 1955, Keith met the love of his life, Audrey Klatt. He said his heart skipped a beat when he saw her. In 55 years, he never forgot the anniversary of their meeting. On October 1 of that year, Keith married Audrey in Lampman, Saskatchewan. Keith was employed by Co-op in a number of locations, first in Bracken, SK while they were newly married, and then in Minnedosa where their daughter, Kim, was born in 1956 and first son, Dean in 1959. Then it was off to Lemberg, Saskatchewan where youngest son, Mark, was born in 1960. After living in Semans, Moose Jaw, and Strathclair, Keith and Audrey moved back to Minnedosa in 1967 where Keith was employed as the manager of the Minnedosa Credit Union. In 1979, the family moved to Brandon where Keith started employment with Braun & Braun Real Estate, and then with the City of Brandon as Property Manager/Development Coordinator in 1983 until his retirement in 1997. Keith said it was this last job that gave him his happiest working years. He found his job with the city immensely satisfying and enjoyed the people he worked with. Keith was an avid sports fan and the television was always on TSN. He loved all sports, especially baseball, hockey, and football, and he usually cheered for the underdogs. Keith was happy that his illness did not prevent him from watching the 2009 Grey Cup in which his beloved Roughriders were playing. Keith was an encyclopedia of hockey facts and trivia and his trusty hockey book was not far from his side. Alongside his hockey book was his equally trusty car buying guide. Keith had a hobby of buying and selling campers, trucks and cars. Keith was predeceased by his father, Thomas, mother- in-law Gladys, and father-in-law Ernest, sister Connie, and brothers- in-law Grant, Glen, and Don. He is survived by his wife Audrey, daughter Kim (Gary), son Dean, and son Mark (Carolyn), his mother Helen, nine grandchildren, six great grandchildren, sister Peggy (Vern), brother Russ (Martha), sisters- in-law Edith, Joan (Terry), Jean (Guy), Sheila (Harry), brother-in-law Ray (Margaret), and many much loved nieces and nephews. Cremation has taken place at Keiths request. A celebration of life service will take place at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at 11 a.m. A private family interment will follow at a later date in Carnduff, Saskatchewan.
