ANDERSON: Andrea Nicole Anderson, November 20, 1983 – April 11, 2015. It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dearly loved Andrea, at the age of 31 years, with her family by her side. Andrea was born in Brandon, Manitoba, attending Riverheights from Kindergarten to Grade 8, and graduating from Vincent Massey High School in 2001. Andrea was a loving, caring person, with a great sense of humour, always courteous and thoughtful to others. She made many best friendships throughout school that lasted a lifetime. During high school and after, Andrea enjoyed going to work very much. She had an excellent work ethic, was well respected, and often was happily employed at two businesses at the same time. Many of her cherished friendships began at work. Andrea was very close to her family and friends and loved having fun with them. She was a wonderful listener, intelligent, wise, and sensible. Andrea was an especially empathetic and honourable person, who believed strongly in human and animal rights. Her compassionate nature and love for animals led her to become a committed vegetarian four years ago. Throughout the years, Andrea’s family had many pets, and Andrea got great pleasure from taking care of them. In recent years, Andrea’s pet miniature poodle Cody and she were inseparable. She had an inherent maternal instinct and loved babies and children. When her niece Loa was born in 2013, Andrea was so proud and quickly became an incredible Auntie. Loa and Auntie Andie spent many days playing and cuddling, and a special bond was formed between them that would last forever. Andrea was also very fond of her friends’ children, excited when they came to visit. She enjoyed spending time outside, going to concerts, and attending celebratory events with friends and family. Her loved ones looked up to her as the strongest, most beautiful person they knew. When Andrea was diagnosed with Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy at the age of 21, she showed exceptional bravery. She fought adversity each day to maintain her quality of life and did so with a positive attitude and kind, loving spirit. She accepted her disease but never let it define the person she was. She overcame many challenges, showing admirable courage, patience, and perseverance. Andrea’s love could be felt a mile away and her smile would always light up a room. Andrea will always be lovingly remembered by her mother, Eveline Anderson; her father, Derek C. Anderson and step-mother, Patti Anderson; her sister Lisa (Steven) Romanowski and niece Loa; her sister Tricia Anderson, (Jason Alexander); her grandmother, M. Louise Anderson; step-family Elizabeth Tully, Bryna (Sheldon) Demers and step-niece Elaina, Amy (Jared) Young, Lynn (Adam) Tully and step-niece Merida, Madison Tully, Harold Tully (Melissa Dunn) and step-nephews Aiden, Owen, and Connor; her aunts and uncles Diane (Bob) Clarke and Family, Debbie (Russ) Brandt and Family, Danita (Glen) Cosgrove and Family; and Harold (Susan) Scherz and Family. Andrea is predeceased by her grandparents, Mark and Stefanie Scherz, of Oak Lake, Manitoba, and grandfather James Cyril Anderson, of Virden, Manitoba. Andrea’s family would like to thank everyone who attended the memorial service in her honour, which was held at Central United Church, on Friday, April 24, 2015. A special thank you to Andrea’s close friends, her best friend and urn bearer Jennifer Bailey, ushers Brett Riddell, Chris Creighton, and Tyler Bryson, Reverend Craig Miller, Brittany and Lisa of Brockie Donovan, and Dr. Caplan and the BRHC staff who cared for Andrea. Donations in memory of Andrea may be made to Muscular Dystrophy Canada at www.muscle.ca (1.888. 518.0044), or to the Humane Society of Canada at www.humanesociety.com (1.800.641.5463).

STEELE: It is with heavy hearts that we say good-bye to Carol Ann Steele. Carol passed away surrounded by her loving family on Friday, April 24, 2015 at the Assiniboine Centre in Brandon after a courageous six month battle with cancer. She will be especially missed by her loving husband Greg and her three sons Curtis (Merle), Brendan (Crystal) and Glenn (Nicole) and her precious grandchildren Cooper, Madeline, Maya and Avery. She is also survived by her parents Dorothy and Willard Lougheed and her sister Vicky, husband Will, and daughters Meagan and Sarah. She will also be sadly missed by Greg’s parents Betty and Bill Steele as well as a multitude of cousins, nieces, nephews and life-long friends. Carol left us to join her devoted grandparents, including Frank and Lily Curtis who deeply loved their first granddaughter. Carol will be remembered for her kind and gentle nature, her willingness to help, her quiet sense of humor and her love for the lake. Carol was born on March 20, 1956 in Emo, Ontario. She grew up in Sioux Narrows on Lake of the Woods. Carol cherished her childhood memories swimming and boating with family and friends. She was involved in the Lake of the Woods Chapel and the Sioux Narrows Curling Club. Always a willing helper Carol never hesitated to swing a hammer alongside her dad when he was in need. She attended high school in Kenora and went on to the University of Manitoba where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts. It was at the University where Carol found her career working in the Campus Library. From the university library she moved on to work at the Brandon City Library, the Agriculture Canada Library and finally Brandon University. While attending University of Manitoba Carol met and fell in love with her husband Greg. They were married February 14th, 1976 and had just celebrated 39 years of marriage. Carol treasured every moment with her family. She and Greg believed the best job they ever had was being grandparents. Carol created a warm and welcoming home for the entire family. She was known for her incredible baking especially during holidays and family get-togethers. Even those far away would welcome Carol’s special care package of gingersnaps and tiger bark. Carol was a member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority during her time in Brandon. She took an active role and served in many capacities over the years. For that she was rewarded with a group of sisters who cared and supported her providing endless hours of laughter and memories. Our family would like to thank the many doctors and nurses for their care at the Brandon Hospital. A Celebration of Her Life will be held at The Bethel Christian Assembly on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in Carol’s memory may be made to a library of your choice, including Brandon University (details forthcoming), or a charity of your choice.

TULLOCH-BEAUMONT:Ivy Tulloch-Beaumont. With saddened relief Mom passed peacefully away on Sunday, April 19th at the age of 95 at Charleswood Care Centre. She was born in Willowbrook, SK on September 17th, 1919 and was one of nine siblings. She met her first husband, Bert Tulloch from the Yorkton area, and they were married on February 26th, 1941. Bert was serving in the RCAF at the time and was stationed at Brandon. At the end of the war, they went to Dunleath, SK where they operated a small general store and in 1950 moved back to Brandon and later, moved to Forrest, MB where they farmed until Bert died in a car accident in 1967. In 1970, she met her second husband, Gordon Beaumont, who farmed near Birch River, MB. They were married October 2nd, 1970. They retired from farming and moved to Swan River, MB in 1994 and unfortunately, Gordon passed away very suddenly on October 22nd. Mom remained in Swan River until 1996 when she moved to Winnipeg to be closer to family. She resided at The Westhaven until 2007 when failing health necessitated her move to Charlewsood Care Centre where she resided until her passing. Mom worked hard all her life and was always active in the various communities where she lived. The local curling club, 4-H Club, church and school all benefited from her volunteering. Mom was an Auxiliary member with RCAFA and the Legion. There were half a dozen foster babies that got a great start from Mom’s early care. Mom enjoyed her big vegetable gardens for the bounty but loved her flowers for pleasure. She was always praised and appreciated for her good food throughout her life. Mom worked as a cook for 10 years at various hotels and the hospital in Brandon but her biggest cooking fans were her family and neighbours whether it was every day or special occasions. Mom was also an excellent seamstress and she shared that talent along with cooking skills as a 4-H Leader. Mom enjoyed travelling and with Gordon did so extensively to various Legion events particularly, when Gordon was President of the Manitoba Northwest Ontario Command. They also travelled to the UK and Continental Europe and spent their winters in Arizona. Mom’s greatest success was as a devoted mother to her four children who are left to mourn her passing; Mildred, Moose Jaw, SK, Donald (Gail) Winnipeg, Dennis (Sharleen) Williams Lake, BC and Judy (Ray) Ottawa. Also, four grandchildren, five great grandchildren, sister, Hazel Connaughton, brother-in-law, Jim Jotham, sister-in-law Jessie Pollock and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by son- in-law, Don Kroshus, three sisters and four brothers. The family will gather at a later date at Brandon Cemetery for ash interment where Mom and Dad will be together again. If friends so desire, a donation honouring Mom can be made to the charity of their choice.
