NICHOL: Peacefully, on Monday, September 5, 2016, Heather Lynne Nichol (nee McLeod) passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre at the age of 68. Left to mourn her passing are daughter Lisa, son-in-law Todd, grandsons Nathan and Matthew Fugleberg; sister Cheryl (Henley) Cunnington; aunts, uncles, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and in-laws. Heather was predeceased by her daughter Merrill, parents Bill and Duneda McLeod (nee Tyderkie) and husband Vernon. Heather was born August 13, 1948, in Winnipeg, MB (St. Boniface) and spent most of her childhood in Winnipeg. During her teen years she attended River East Collegiate, was part of the Luther League and worked at Rainbow stage in Winnipeg. Her dad's work for CP rail took the family briefly to Moose Jaw, SK where she completed her Grade 12. When her family then moved to Thunder Bay, Heather stayed in Moose Jaw and completed a 2 year Secretarial Science Diploma at the Saskatchewan Technical Institute. It was during this time that she was introduced to Vernon. After a whirlwind romance, Vern and Heather married on May 31, 1969. Their early marriage was spent in Borden, SK where Vern dairy farmed with his family. Initially a true city girl, Heather soon learned the basics of farm and rural life and was a homemaker when her children were young. Once Vernon started working for Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation the family moved to Saskatoon, Blackstrap Regional Park (where they also farmed land near Hanley) and eventually North Battleford. Heather started working as a medical receptionist in 1986 and then as a Health Records Clerk at Battleford's Health District in 2001. She retired from this position with Prairie North Health Region when her health was declining. In 2010, she moved to Brandon, MB to be closer to Lisa and her family. The tragic death of her 9-year old daughter irrevocably changed Heather's life. She faced many other trials and tribulations after that time, including the early death of her husband Vern. She was able to get through these extremely difficult times and find a way to carry on. She joined Compassionate Friends, connected with Mothers Against Drunk Driving and was part of the North Battleford Safety Council for several years. Throughout Heather's life, her love of books was evident and reading was her main hobby, joy and comfort. She was part of the North Battleford Public Library Board and Lakeland Regional Library Board for many years. Heather loved spending time at the cabin and with her various family pets. She enjoyed playing kaiser and scrabble with friends and family and playing lego and monopoly with her grandsons. She also enjoyed baking - Nathan and Matthew rarely experienced being without homemade cookies once Grandma moved to Brandon. Heather could start up a conversation with anyone and was known by all for her sense of humour and quick wit which she displayed right up to the last days of her recent lengthy illness. The Funeral Service took place at Redeemer Lutheran Church on Friday, September 9, 2016 with Pastor Laurel Seyfert officiating. Interment will take place at the Hanley Cemetery, Hanley, Saskatchewan, at a later date. Donations in memory of Heather may be made to a charity of choice.

ROBERTSON: It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Garnet Wayne Robertson (Wayne). Wayne passed away suddenly on September 2, 2016 at the age of 69 years. Wayne is survived by his loving wife Kathy and his children: Chris (Raji); Michelle (Bill) Trombley; Steve; Alicia (Rodney) Poitras and Mike. Also left to mourn are several grandchildren and one great-grandchild; Wayne's siblings; his brothers and sisters-in-law; as well as many other family members and friends. Wayne was predeceased by his parents Gerald and Patricia Robertson; his in-laws Bill and Evelyn Wiebe; his eldest brother John; his sister-in-law Gail and his brother-in-law Dennis. Wayne was born on August 11th, 1947 and he was born and raised in Brandon, Manitoba. He also spent some of his life living in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Calgary, Alberta and Vernon, British Columbia, before settling back in Brandon in 1977. Wayne's school years were spent at Park School, Earl Oxford and Neelin Composite High School. During his school years, Wayne was a member of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps. He later went on to receive his Red Seal certification as a Journeyman Bricklayer at Red River Community College. An avid fisherman, Wayne spent countless hours with family and friends at his favorite fishing spots; one of which resulted in him winning the CKLQ Pik-A-Dilly fishing derby in June of 1986. We cannot disclose the location of that or any of Wayne's fishing spots, so don't ask. Wayne had an artistic gift and was a craftsman of all sorts. He enjoyed creating art through his bricklaying and stonework, as well as candle making and ceramics. He was also a great handyman, able to build and create almost anything, but maybe not so great of an appliance repair man. Sorry Dad. Wayne was very active in sports as a child; he spent years playing hockey, baseball and various other school sports such as track and field. One of Wayne's most memorable times in sports was when he was chosen to be on a baseball all-star team that travelled to Saint Joseph, Missouri for the Championship games. They didn't win, but had an amazing time and a parade was held in the team's honour when they arrived back home. Besides participating in sports, Wayne was also a die-hard sports fan. He loved it when his grandsons joined hockey and his granddaughter joined softball. His favorite teams were the Montreal Canadiens, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the Toronto Blue Jays, the New York Yankees and the Brandon Wheat Kings. Wayne loved sports rivalries and teasing his brothers and pretty much anyone else who got in his way. He had a soft spot in his heart for his grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with them. Wayne also liked visiting and going out for coffee with family and friends and he will be greatly missed. As per Wayne's wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal funeral service. Instead, a Celebration of Wayne's Life will be held for family and friends at Park Community Centre which is located at 1428 Louise Avenue in Brandon, Manitoba where Wayne had many fond memories as a child. The Celebration will be held on Sunday, September 25 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. If people so desire, a donation in memory of Wayne can be made to Kidsport Canada, 145 Pacific Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3B 2Z6 or the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program, online donations may be made at, as sports was such a big part of Wayne's life.

Mom was very devoted to her family and loved our family gatherings and family vacations. She appreciated the many phone calls from family and friends, and the visits with friends and neighbours. She enjoyed bowling, and watching curling and the Olympics. We learned from her courage and determination as she faced the challenges of life as a wife, parent, and business partner, later becoming a widow and facing the challenges of aging and health issues. We can’t even begin to measure how much we will miss her, just as we cannot measure the impact she has had on our lives. Thank you to all for the kind words, prayers , visits, hugs, cards, flowers and gifts of food. A graveside service was held in the family plot in Hillside Memorial Park in Portage la Prairie.
