MILLIKEN: Kenneth Beverley (Bev) Milliken, Husband, Dad, and Grandpa passed away on Friday February 5, 2010 at the Willowview Personal Care Home in Reston, Manitoba. Bev was born on June 16, 1929, the youngest son of William Milliken and Grace (McMurchy) Milliken, at The Meadows farm north of Reston, Manitoba. During his growing up years he spent his time at the farm and attended school in Reston. He grew up a farm boy and most of the stories we, his family, were told were about picking stones and harvest time. He enjoyed hunting along the Pipestone Creek that ran through the farmyard. He was the proud owner of two Harley Davidson bikes and loved to share stories with his children and grandchildren how fast he and his long time friend, Peter Baldwin could drive and make it to Redvers, Saskatchewan. He married Mary Boulton on July 15, 1950 and to this marriage was born four children, Wendy, Kenneth, Ann and Robbie. Their married life was started in the Kinloss district, followed by time spent in the Hillview district – moving finally to the Donald Farm on the Stoney Creek in 1960. He retired from farming in 2001. In the summer of 2008, Bev and Mary moved to the Town of Reston. In early 2009, Bev suffered a heart attack and spent the last year of his life at the Willowview Personal Care home. Over the years, Dad was an avid supporter of his children being in 4-H. He was a 4-H beef leader and taught Hunter Safety. When he sold the milk cows in the mid-60’s, he started driving a school bus – later becoming a school bus driver with the Fort La Bosse School Division for over 34 years – retiring from the school bus in 1997. He had a great impact on the many young people who rode his school bus over the years. Bev was also a long-time director with the Pipestone Albert Ag Society, a board member of the Linklater elevator – being involved in the moving of the Ewart elevator to the Linklater elevator site and a member of the Canadian legion. He enjoyed playing pool at the drop in centre in town. During his entire life, Bev loved to sing – he sang at weddings, funerals and in various church choirs. He sang at his daughter, Ann’s wedding. Later in his life after many years of square dancing with his wife Mary, he began to call for square dance clubs. He loved the music and the opportunity to laugh and be with friends. For many years, Bev and Mary taught square dancing to the Grade 2 class in Reston. He and Mary were presented with the Crocus Long Service Square Dance Award in 2008. His grandchildren remember it being easy to track down Grandpa on the farm as he would be singing or whistling. He was extremely proud of all of his family and along with Mary took special interest in their nine grandchildren’s activities – Grandpa and Grandma were always there to support the “wee lassies and laddies” Camping and traveling were an experience that Bev enjoyed doing – many trips were made out west to Penticton and other spots including California to visit his sister and her husband. Camping with his grandchildren at Cactus Hills was a highlight for all and each of the grandchildren have special memories of times spent camping with Grandma and Grandpa. Bev will be missed by his wife Mary of 59 years, daughter Wendy Bulloch of Brandon, grandchildren Colin and Dianne of Winnipeg and Cameron of Whistler B.C.; son Kenneth and Eileen Milliken of Reston, granddaughter Jennifer and grandson Derek, both of Brandon; daughter Ann and Brent Patmore of Virden, grandchildren Keenan of Winnipeg and Kaitlyn of Brandon; son Robbie and Dale Milliken of Reston, grandsons Dillon and Cody at Reston and granddaughter Jessica. He is survived by his sister Roberta Lappin of Glendale California, and a sister- in-law and brother-in-laws, as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. A celebration of Bev’s life was held on Friday February 19th at the Pipestone Community Hall in Pipestone Manitoba – Reverend Dwight Rutherford officiated at the service with organist Vivian Henuset and a joint choir from the Reston Anglican, Reston and Pipestone United churches providing the music. Jennifer Milliken and Kaitlyn Patmore delivered the eulogy, full of many memories and stories, in honor of their grandpa. A power point show of Bev’s life was shared with all in attendance. The Mennonite choir from Sinclair sang Amazing Grace. Pallbearers were Bev’s six grandsons, Colin and Cameron Bulloch, Derek Milliken, Keenan Patmore, Dillon and Cody Milliken and flower bearers were his granddaughters Jennifer Milliken, Kaitlyn Patmore and Jessica Milliken. Interment was in the Reston cemetery. A time of fellowship was enjoyed over lunch – served by the Pipestone Guild and Square Dance Members back at the Pipestone Hall.

JASPER: Robert Lawrence Jasper, in his 84th year, passed away January 22, 2010, in the Souris Health Centre after a lengthy illness, but brief hospital confinement of only four days. He was born May 27, 1926 on the home farm 20-6-23 in R.M. of Cameron, to Charles and Anne Jasper, the second child of their family of five. He attended Hartney School Grades I to XI. Following the death of his father in 1955 he assumed the responsibilities of the farm, the care of his mother and teenage brother Donald, who subsequently would become his lifetime partner in the Jasper cattle enterprise. In 1958 they became interested in raising Charolais cattle, a new breed to be introduced to the Hartney area. In 1968, a small delegation of Charolais breeders met in Brandon and formed the Manitoba Charolais Association. Robert was elected to the board of directors and served for several terms, one as vice president. Robert and Don have produced many fine Charolais cattle. They had top gaining and trophy winning bulls at the Douglas testing station in 1970 and 1971. In 1986 their yearling bull “Jasper’s Mr. Show Me”, was winner in his class at the Brandon Agricultural Exhibition, and was purchased by Reuben Ehert, president of the Canadian Charolais Association, and owner of Flat Valley Charolais Ranch at Hilda, Alberta. Through the years the Jasper Charolais herd has increased in size. Although Robert suffered greatly from many health issues he continued, for as long as he was able, to drive from his residence in Hartney to the farm. He assisted with the care and feeding of the cattle, even mowing and raking hay as recently as July/August 2009. He acquired his first heifer calf when he was ten years old, so it can be said he was a dedicated and devoted farmer/cattleman for 73 years! The Hartney 4H Calf Club was formed in 1960. He was one of the leaders for several years. He was president of the Hartney Agricultural Society for several years and livestock exhibitor at the annual summer fairs. Here his impressive palomino stallion, “Gallant Golden Glo”, one of the first of this breed in the Hartney area, was shown and admired. Robert was also a dedicated and valued member of the Hartney I.O.O.F. #25 fraternal lodge until it dismantled in 2003. Robert was a quiet, gentle, sincere, hard-working, sensitive man, asking for very few favors in life, but always willing to lend a helping hand. He loved to visit and was renowned for his incredible memory, knowledge of current affairs, local events and people involved. He will be sadly missed by his sisters Margaret Love of Souris, Phyllis Elder of Hartney and her daughters Cheryl, Pam (John), Lisa (Richard) and families; brothers Edward (Gloria) Jasper of Melita and children Krista, Tami, Sheldon (Char) and families, Don (Sandra) Jasper of Hartney and sons Cory (Lisa), Michael, Kelly and families; cousins Mary Graham of Hartney, Hazel Mills of Carlyle, Saskatchewan, Sheila (Ross) Richardson of Vancouver, B.C.; special friend Ebby Bertholet of Hartney, and many other friends and neighbors and all extended families. Robert was predeceased by his parents, his sister-in-law Jean Jasper, brothers-in-law John Love and Robert Elder, nephew Brent Elder, cousins Wallace Jasper and Isobel (Russell) Vandusen. Interment took place in the Jasper family plot at the Hartney Riverside Cemetery. The memorial service followed at Kowalchuk Funeral Chapel with Rev. Barbara Alston officiating and Lorne Robson the organist. Active pallbearers were: Gordon Currah, George Freeman, Shane Eastman, Don Barrows, Gary Decock, Ken Moreau, and all in attendance considered honorary pallbearers. Kowalchuk’s Funeral Home was in charge of the funeral arrangements. Memorial donations may be made to the Brandon Humane Society or charity of choice.
