MacKALSKI (MICHALSKI): Robert "Bob". As a father; for let the world take note I shall not look upon his like again. (HAMLET, Shakespeare). Surrounded by his beloved wife and children, Robert MacKalski surrendered his soul to God on January 4, 2015 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. Robert was born to Polish immigrants, Walter and Anna Michalski, in Brandon on June 5, 1923. As a child of the Great Depression his life was forged by adversity and poverty and his character defined by generosity, resilience and a strong work ethic. He attended St. Augustine School, Earl Haig, and Brandon Collegiate Institute. He furthered his education at the University of Texas, Austin where he majored in Transportation. Robert was a proud World War II veteran. Responding to the call of his country he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF#12) and was chosen for the prestigious precision squadron. Following the war, he embarked on a distinguished career in administration with the Canadian Pacific Railways and Imperial Life/Desjardin Financial. Robert was an active parishioner of St. Hedwig's Polish Roman Catholic Church until its closing. Then he embraced St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church as his spiritual home. As a friend and benefactor to St. Michael's Academy he served as EMCEE for countless graduations and formal ceremonies. He was the longest serving Knight of Columbus in the province of Manitoba with a commitment of greater than 70 years. As a fourth degree knight he was a strong prolife advocate and responsible for the initiation of hundreds of brother knights. He was a colourful character deeply committed to the community he loved, Brandon. His legacy includes almost 70 years of service to the Royal Canadian Legion including the Poppy Campaign and appointments to numerous boards including Crocus Credit Union and Crime Stoppers. He was proud to be one of the founding members of Christian Heritage School. Robert was dignified, handsome, kind, principled and a magnificent orator. Although Robert travelled widely his heart belonged to Clear Lake where he found beauty, joy and tranquility with his family. Bob considered his greatest achievement his 52 year marriage to the love of his life, Marlene. The marriage was blessed with four children and seven grandchildren with whom he shared his love for animals especially dogs. He is survived by his loving wife, Marlene and his children: Dr. Barbara Ann MacKalski, Jacqueline Jackson( Douglas), Jennifer Savoie ( Jean-Paul) and Dr. Robert MacKalski ( Bianca).

MADILL: On January 4, 2015, Connie Madill (nee Bucklaschuk) passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer. Connie was predeceased by her son David, her father Walter, her mother Mary (nee Bird), brothers’ Ronald and Cameron, and granddaughter Hayley. She will be deeply missed by her husband of 39 years John, son Andrew, brothers’ Jerry (Brenda), Frank, Steve (Doreen), Jeffrey, Leslie, Andy, and her sister Candice Ross (Dennis). She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Her biggest delight was spending time with her grandchildren. She loved them all dearly and would regale anyone with stories of their antics. Sleepovers were often and the spoiling of kids was a grandmothers’ given right. Whether it was making a favorite supper, baking cookies, watching a movie or reading a good bedtime story, Connie enjoyed it all. Employed for 40 years at Holy Family Nursing Home, she began her career as a nurses’ aid and eventually discovered her passion by entertaining and motivating the residents as a member of the Recreation department. Needless to say, Connie was deeply saddened when she was forced to retire from her “dream job” due to her illness. She had attained many lifelong friends during her tenure and loved many of the residents there. Connie had a true zest for life, enjoying camping, hunting, fishing, and boating. Summers spent out at the Inwood Golf and Country Club as well as the trailer park were especially memorable with lots of new friends made and good times had by all. When quiet time was needed, she enjoyed working on puzzles, needlework, and reading books. Connie’s desire to volunteer and help people started as a young teenager, when she began writing letters to soldiers during the Vietnam War. At the age of 16, volunteering to help people suffering from drug addiction at the Mount Carmel Clinic, which very likely steered her into the healthcare field and her lifelong service of compassion. In the fall of 2000, Connie joined Kin Canada and spent countless hours ‘Serving the Communities Greatest Needs’ as a member of The Greater Winnipeg Kinettes. Holding several executive positions, sitting on committees, and running projects, Connie “took the bull by the horns” and served as club president in 2002-03. Connie also spent many years as a member of the Seven Oaks Game and Fish. One of her many accomplishments was combining her love of volunteering with the passion she had for her extended family at the nursing home. Connie was instrumental in organizing fun fishing days with the members of game and fish and the residents. Those trips to Lee River and the Wazney family cottage were the things that good memories are made of. Her attitude throughout this ordeal was amazing. Connie didn’t want sympathy for the cards she was dealt. If you were to see her, the last thing she wanted to do was talk cancer. She was all about happy thoughts and good memories. Connie touched the hearts of everyone she met along life’s road and always met them with a smile. In the face of hardship, she taught us all strength and unwavering courage. A celebration of life will be held this Saturday, January 10, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. at Glen Eden Funeral Home, 4477 Main Street. A private interment will be held at a later date.In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Connie’s honor to one of Connie’s favorite charities, The Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, The Royal Canadian Legion, or the Literacy Partners of Manitoba. Grateful appreciation to the staff at the St. Boniface Hospital Palliative Care Unit.
