he Minnedosa Bombers home game Saturday, January 30th against


the Deloraine Royals began after a moment of silence respecting the loss
of a standout ECHL professional forward for the
Rapid City Rush, Blaine
Jarvis who was killed January 26th in a snowmobile
accident. The 31-year-old
was from Gladstone and
leaves behind his wife of
four years, Jenny and their
newborn son, Ryker.
Within eight minutes
of the starting puck drop
the Bombers Michael
Birch scored the firstgoal.
Before the end of the first
period the Minnedosa
Bombers were up 3-0
against the Royals with
two more goals scored
by Sean Smith and Mark
Willis. The second period
started with Matt Saler
slamming in the fourth
goal a minute into play
then another two goals
were scored before the end
of the period by Wes Lewis
and Tyler Jury, giving the
Bombers a commanding
6-0 lead. Not even a minute into the third period,
Travis Erickson slid one
by the Royals goalie and
it seemed like Deloraine
was going to go home
empty handed, however
the Royals got a lucky
break and scored their
first goal. Up to that point

an impassable wall for the
Royals! Two minutes later,
Michael Birch pounded in
his second goal making
the score an impressive
8 to 1. The Royals gave
their all in the last period
and managed to score another three goals making
the fi nal score 8-4 for the
Minnedosa Bombers.
Tensions between the
two rival teams had been
heating up throughout the
game with some hard hits
and penalties that eventu-

ally boiled over into some


action-packedskirmishes.
Th e Bombers relentless
determination pounded
goal after goal into the
Royals net sending the
players back to Deloraine
licking their wounds and
giving our hometown
fans an exciting night of
fast paced hockey! The
Bombers next home game
is tomorrow night Saturday, February 6th when
they take on the Carberry
Plainsmen.

Water Work Underway At Golf Course


By JEFF PEARSON

n November of 2015 the


Minnedosa Golf Course
placed a much-needed
order for a new irrigation
pump to replace the old
failing pump. The old
pump-house was dangerous and in constant
need of repair, one of the
pumps was from the early

80s, said Jim Stevenson, Greens Chair for the


Minnedosa Golf Course.
Th ey integrated another
pump about 10 years ago
with the expansion, but
they have had nothing but
problems with the entire
system for the last three or
four years. One of the biggest problems was safety
when repair and main-

tenance was required,


which was becoming a
regular necessity.
The new state of the
art pump was ordered
from Pumptronics Pumping Systems out of Ontario
at cost of approximately
$70,000.
The expected
delivery date is March of
this year and so far everything is on schedule. The

cement pad was poured


recently and is all ready
for the new unit to arrive.
Once the pump is in place
Pembina
Landscaping
and Irrigation out of Altona will do all connections
and make sure everything
flows properly. So far everything is on schedule for
full operation this coming
golf season.

careful attention, drove over a cow, upsetting the cutter and
throwing the occupants out giving them a bad fright. The cow
did not get off so well and required the services of the veterinarian the next day.

The sum of $96,746.33 was sent out of Minnedosa


Post Office orders during the year ending March 1915. This is
more then went from any other town in the province with the
exception of Winnipeg, Brandon, Le Pas and Dauphin.

You cant make chicken salad out of chicken


shit. Th
at was a colourful phrase that I heard from
a mentor in business early in my career that has
stuck with me for more than twenty years. Once
readers get past the directness of the off color language, I am certain that most can agree that this
sentiment is true. Success requires change and
sometimes that means we need to make some
bold moves.
The challenge that many rural communities
are facing with long term strategies is that most
economic development programs identify a five
year strategy sometimes to even develop their program and set the framework that will allow them to
chip away at the challenges in a methodical fashion over the following decade. However, while a
community development plan might look at five,
ten and even twenty years ultimately, their budget is approved by a leadership that operates in
three year cycles.
It can be diffi cult to get support for a project
which does require some short term financial
pain, even if showing case studies that illustrate
the success that has been achieved elsewhere.
Because ultimately the tax paying public is looking for a balanced set of books each and every year
and for every dollar spent there needs to be a tangible, measurable result. We are certainly well familiar with the unrest of incomplete projects that
carry over year after year with no identified progress.
This has greatly infl uenced the way that community development is pursued in a number of
jurisdictions. Instead of addressing the long term
needs, developing investment attractiveness, preparing land and infrastructure for the next wave
of growth and development, we reach for the low
hanging fruit. We make a half-hearted effort with
the hopes of succeeding with minimal risk. Business retention and expansion programs are non-

existent there have been no resources allocated.


Professional development and networking (not
measurable in terms of immediate value) often get
scratched from the budgets. In the end, in many
communities the economic development office
can be a bit of a toothless dog, barking at passing
opportunities with no real means to latch on to
those deals.
Heres our reality now. Minnedosas growth
is going to require investment. As of this writing,
all available commercial buildings on Main Street
are populated, spoken for, or are slated for development in 2016. Efforts from this office to engage
property owners who are sitting on vacant/unused
commercial property about the community have
not generated a response. Getting new business,
expanding on our existing portfolio requires that
we consider where we can next develop commercially and industrially.
Its no secret, and I have said it before on the
pages of this newspaper that this growth requires
that we build to the west. Visibility on Highway 10
is important. I would suggest that the Federal governments seven figure investment in the improvements to Highway 10 from the regional airport and
past our community illustrate this significance.
The investment in the Brandon airport opens the
door for other opportunities for us. Our participation in a regional initiative focused on building
our investment attractiveness to external interests
is another rpiece of the puzzle. There is a lot of investment AROUND us. Now we need to prepare
ourselves to grow in step with the region.
As we consider where we grow from here it is
important for every rate paying citizen both rural
and urban that growth requires investment. It requires bold moves. It requires confidence in what
is possible for our community and illustrating our
own belief in the value of the Minnedosa opportunity. That means securing property, putting infrastructure in the ground and marketing the opportunity as aggressively as possible to demonstrate
our commitment to business and industry.
Lets make chicken salad if weve got the
right ingredients available to us to make it.

people and we need to talk. You can find me under

Readers Lament Over Pending Loss Of Pearson Block


Dear Editor,

am responding to your news story in the January


22nd edition of The Tribune on the replacement of the
stone building named the historic Pearson Block in
the article by a two storey office building to house the
Co-op administration offi ces. While I am pleased that
more jobs might be brought to the community, I am
very disappointed that such an important landmark is
slated for demolition. I am surprised that the Community Development Officer seems unaware of the draw of
important buildings, especially those of imposing stature to the public at large, to those who might consider
visiting to spend time and open their wallets in the process.
Permit me to off
er an observation from my own
experience. We have recently moved to a community
situated on the (little) Mississippi River, located within
the Ottawa Valley. There are several small towns along
the river. Those that have taken the trouble to maintain their character, chiefly by the preservation of impressive buildings, are doing very well indeed,because
of shoppers and visitors attracted by the beauty of the
communities. Those that have not taken such troubles
are struggling. While I appreciate that the proximity of
a large city to such communities makes a comparison
with Minnedosa appear unrealistic, yet I would maintain that the main principle applies. I doubt if anyone
considers spending much time in the desolation that is
downtown Brandon.
I would add that a two storey offi ce building will
certainly not result inrefreshing the look of the downtown core, and the chances of incorporating some of
the distinctive elements into the new building is a very
long shot, indeed. Of course the costs of renovating the
existing structure will be higher than building a new
one, but what of the costs to the community of losing a
landmark building?
I was recently cheered by the Editors focus on
some important buildings in downtown Minnedosa,
and hope that others might continue this discussion.

Ottawa Valley

Dear Editor,

y copy of the January


22nd edition of The
Minnedosa Tribune arrived today January 29th.
This email is to comment
on the lead story: Heritage
Co-op To Invest In Excess
of $1M.
Minnedosa is my
home town where I had
an idyllic childhood. The
progress of Minnedosa
has always been of great
interest to me.
I
was
therefore
pleased to read that Heritage Co-op has had an
Administrative Office in
Minnedosa for 15 years,
that it now has annual
sales of over $150 million,
and that it has purchased
the large stone building
(Pearson Block) kitty-corner from the former post
office (clock tower) as the
site for a new greatly ex-

panded Administration
Office.
The downside for me
and likely for others is that
they plan to tear down the
grand old, stone, Pearson
Block, citing the usual justifi cation: costs to renovate the existing structure
would be significantly
greater than that of new
construction. I guess all I
can hope for is that General Manager Lorne Zacharias gets his wish that
some of the distinctive
elements of the current
structure may be incorporated into the new space.
We shall see.
Th e small building
immediately left (south)
of the Pearson Block was
in 1950-60 my father G. C.
(Gerry) McMillans store:
McMillans Dry Goods.
Im probably the only one
sad to see it demolished
although it has no heri-

tage value. My paternal


grandfather John McMillan (1852-1933) owned a
general store in Minnedosa from the late 1880s to
about 1913. His store was
on the west side of Main
Street in a stone building
known as Jacks Bakery in
the 1960s.
I wish Heritage Co-op

success because I wish the


Town of Minnedosa success and the Minnedosa
Tribune success, although
I do lament the loss of the
stone Pearson Block. In
my Minnedosa days I was
known as Jack.

he Newdale Early Birds


Club would like to
send out sympathy to Ruth
McConnell of Hamiota on
the sudden passing of her
husband Red (Elgin Deryl)
on January 28th in Hamiota Hospital. Funeral service was held February 1st.
Ruth and Red attended
many of Newdales Cribbage Tournaments over
the past years.
Garry and Lynne
Tolton spent last weekend
helping daughter Kendra
celebrate a very special
birthday. Very best wishes for many more Kendra from your hometown
friends.
A large crowd attended the meeting on January
27th in the community hall
to discuss the future home
of our Post Office. Post
mistress Dorothy Levich
states she must find new
quarters by the end of July.
It does not appear that
there is any chance of the
Post Office closing in Newdale, which is good news
to hear. The main purpose
of the meeting was to form
a committee to find a suitable and affordable place
for it to move to and then
report those findings back

to the community.
A full house enjoyed
this seasons last performance of the Strathclair
Dinner Chorus as they entertained us with Beatlemania on January 30th in
Strathclair Hall. The songs
performed were all written
by one or more members
of the Beatles, often in collaboration with other musicians. Along with piano
there were drums, violin,
guitar, clarinet and bass
guitar to provide musical accompaniment to the
Chorus. Cheese, crackers
and punch were served
at fi rst intermission and
strawberry shortcake, tea
and coffee for the second,
all delicious! How fortunate we are to have so
many wonderful singers
and musicians willing to
share their talents with us,
in this area. Well done as
always!
Newdale Ravens Glen
WI met for their January
meeting on the 28th at
the Drop In Centre. The
business session was completed and an update was
presented on the upcoming MWI Convention that
will be hosted by our SWA
Region at Elkhorn Resort
in May. Our WI will be
performing the Celebra-

tion of Life, where members that have passed away


this year are honoured.
Th e Program - discussion followed on an article
read about the inequality
of the education funding
provided by the Manitoba
government, to aboriginal
school students. Aboriginal students receive about
20% less funding per student than students in regular classrooms. A social
time followed.
We send our sympathy to Trevor Hinch on
the passing of his former
father-in-law. Trevor has
been busy and done many
upgrades to the beautiful
brick home on Main Street.

Expressions To
Feature The Hound
of Baskervilles
By JEFF PEARSON

he Minnedosa Performing Arts Expressions Concert


Series is proud to present the The Hound of the Baskervilles tonight (Friday, February 5th) at the Minnedosa
Community Conference Centre.
The play is adapted from the classic crime novel written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective
Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson. The
book was originally published in 1902 and tells the story
of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound of supernatural origin. This was
the first appearance of Holmes since his intended death
in The Final Problem, and the success of The Hound of the
Baskervilles led to the characters eventual revival. In
2003, the book was listed as number 128 of 200 on the
BBCS The Big Read poll of the UKs Best-Loved Novel.
In 1999, the book was listed as the top Holmes novel, with
a perfect rating from Sherlockian scholars. This masterpiece of mystery and suspense is the most celebrated
Holmes story of all time.
Tonights Royal Manitoba Th eater Centres rendition will be mostly faithful to the original plot with three
amazing actors playing 17 different characters in a lively
adaptation that started performing January 25th in Deloraine and the tour will end February 26th in MacGregor.

noman (Snowmobilers of Manitoba) Inc. celebrated


International Snowmobile Safety Week January 16th
to 24th and encourages all riders to ride safe, stay on the
trail, and respect private property.
Snowmobile safety has always been a high priority
for our organization, said Yvonne Rideout, Executive Director. We work closely with our counterparts to bring
safety to the forefront and we also offer an online snowmobile safety course and other safety courses.
An integral part of safety week is the Safe Riders! Th
e
campaign includes the following messages:
- Snowmobiling and alcohol dont mix
- Dont drink and ride.
- Know before you go! Always check local ice conditions.
- When night riding, slow down! Expect the unexpected.
- Know the risks, be prepared and make every trip a
round trip.
- Cross roadways with care.
- Ride smart, ride right. Stay in control.
- Smart riders are safe riders. Take snowmobile safety training.
With approximately 12,000 kilometres of designated trails, it is essential that all riders practice safety, said
Rideout. The best policy is to ride with a friend and let
someone know where you are going and when you will
return.
Snoman Inc., a not-for-profi t organization, is dedicated to providing strong leadership and support to its
member clubs to develop safe and environmentally responsible snowmobile trails to further the enjoyment of
organized recreational snowmobiling in Manitoba.

Jewelry On Display

rista Powell is one of


the many artists with
their works on display for
sale at the recently opened
Inspire Studio of Fine Art.
I have always loved
wearing jewelry since I was
a child, so when the chance
came to take a class in 2011
and learn how to make my
own, I jumped at the opportunity, Krista said. I
have been making jewelry
ever since.
All her pieces are
unique and handmade,
crafted from a variety of
nickel free materials and
genuine stones, shells and
glass. There are a large variety of bracelets, necklaces, pins, earrings and rings
for customers to choose

New Visitor Maps Marry Business and Recreation


By VERN MAY

his Spring will see new


signage erected to
promote the outdoor recreation and trails that are
woven through the landscape of our community.
Building on the work that
was previously done for
the signs that are posted
in Tanners Crossing Park,
at the spillway and across
from the campground office, the new signs will not
only promote our recreation, but more completely
promote the whole of our
business community as
well.
The CDC offi ce wants
to help visitors recognize
how intertwined our recreation venues are throughout our community
where we live, where we
work and where we shop.
By exploring this evolution to our current trail

map signage, we can more


completely promote the
profi le of the community
and what we have to offer.
In addition to the signs
which will be replaced in
advance of May long weekend, upon a recommendation from the Tourism
Committee, the map will
also be adapted as a tearaway pad which will be
available to local businesses which frequently field
inquiries from visitors for
directions to any number
of our community attractions.
While the cost of the
overall project has been
addressed through the
CDCs budget, the opportunity to add more 3D
building graphics to the
map is one that we are
off ering to the business
owners themselves. For
fi fty dollars, the business
site and business name

will appear on the posted


signage, and efforts are
being made to find an opportunity to showcase the
businesses as well on the
smaller handheld maps
that will be available for
hand out.
Th ose businesses interested in participating
should get in touch with
the CDC office by February
12th at 12:00 noon.
In addition to the
overall community map,
a presentation was made
this week as well to the
board to proceed with the
same fi rm to update our
campground map to illustrate our twenty new
sites and ensure that the
campground
marketing
bears a consistent look
and marries up well to the
overall community signage
as proposed. As of press
time, the decision from the
board was not known.

Photo submitted

A new community map featuring 3-D images of local businesses


and attractions is being designed by a Winnipeg firm and is
hoped to be completed this spring.

Safely Removing Tarnish From Silver


Solutions and
Substitutions
By

REENA NERBAS
Hi Reena,
I just dug out a silver
plated ice bucket; which
has not been used for a
long time and it is very
tarnished!What is the
best way to deal with this?
Anne
Dear Anne,
Whether dealing with
jewelry or serving dishes,
silver pieces are known
for blackening over time.
Interestingly, the more
a person uses silver, the
less it tarnishes. When
cleaning silver, never use
abrasive pads or clothes;
as they can become
scratched and ruin some
(if any) etching details.

Line your kitchen sink


with big sheets of crumpled aluminum foil. Place
the ice bucket in the sink.
Pour in enough hot water
to cover most or all of the
ice bucket. To the water
add; half cup salt, one cup
baking soda and 4 cups
vinegar. Leave for 20 minutes. Turn the ice bucket
regularly so that each side
comes in contact with the
foil. Remove from sink. If
any blackened areas remain, sprinkle that specifi c area with additional
baking soda; then clean
with a soft toothbrush.
Rinse with water; soft cotton clothes are great for
polishing.

Dear Reena,
I am having a large
pile of guests at my house
in the next few weeks.
I have limited space in
my oven and therefore
have decided to use my
crock pot to cook part of
the meal. Is it possible to
make perogies in a crock
pot? Greta
Dear Greta,
Using your crock pot
(slow cooker) has many
advantages. You can make
part of the meal ahead of
time; and like you said it
is a great solution when
oven space is limited.
Take frozen perogies and
toss with melted butter or
margarine or cooking oil;
every perogy should be
coated. Add 2 Tbsp. water
to the pot. Cook for three
hours. Add sauces, bacon
pieces or sauted onions
as desired.
Dear Reena,
Please give me some
suggestions for the following: Cleaning the
stoneware dish of a crock
pot. Cleaning the brown
fi lm that forms on cookie
sheets. Cleaning a glass
container that previously
was used for a plant container. There is a distinct
line around the top of the
container that I cant get

rid of. Joyce


Dear Joyce,
Clean the slow cooker
crock pot by submersing it
in hot water and dish soap.
Scrub with a non-abrasive
scrub pad. Some people
(like myself) have experienced the best results
by scrubbing the pot with
a wet S.O.S pad and dish
soap however, many manufacturers advise against
this commenting that
abrasive pads may scratch
the pot. Another option
is to place the cooled pot
on the bottom rack of the
dishwasher; the hot water
and dishwasher detergent
are powerful at removing
food residue as long as the
food has not cooked onto
the sides of the pot.
You can clean your
baking sheets by using
a combination of baking soda and dish soap
or Bar Keepers Friend.
Scrub with a non-abrasive
cloth. If the shiny coating is gone, it will not return. In the restaurant
business people use steel
wool to scrub non-coated
aluminum baking sheets.
Some people had great
results cleaning sheets
with oven cleaner in a
ventilated area, test on an
inconspicuous area first.
To make cleaning easier

(in the future), line pans


with parchment paper
before baking or spray
pans with non-stick coating or grease pans with
oil or purchase silicone
sheets. Parchment paper
is a great investment; you
will save time cleaning up,
food will not stick to the
paper and your pans will
last for years.
Fill the glass vase with
hot vinegar. When the
vinegar is cool enough
to touch, scrub the water

line with a non-scratching


abrasive cloth or very fine
sandpaper. Pour out the
contents and polish with
a drying cloth. If the mark
returns, the glass is permanently etched.
Note: Every user assumes all risks of injury
or damage resulting from
the implementation of
any suggestions in this
column. Test all products
on an inconspicuous area
first.

Using Knives In The Kitchen - Part 1


Cooking
With
CHEF DEZ

have always said that


one of my favourite
things about being a chef
is that I get to play with
knives. Although this may
sound very adventurous
in a James Bond fashion,
knife skills and proper/
safe cutting practices are
a very serious subject in
the kitchen. With some
basic knowledge, you can
start to overcome any cutting intimidation you may
have.
In this column I will
focus on the tools themselves - knives. This will
be the first of three installments on cutting. My next
column will focus on cutting boards, and the third
column will focus on cutting techniques.
There are many choices when trying to decide
on which knives will
adorn the collection of
cutting tools in your kitchen. The marketplace is
saturated with everything
from mail-order deals to
high-end specialties.
First and foremost,
I have to stress that one
usually gets what they

pay for. Before you reach


for your credit card when
you see the full collection of ginsu knives for
only $19.99 on TV, think
about it realistically. How
well are these knives
manufactured? Once the
twenty dollars is divided
between the TV air-time
costs, the production of
the commercial, and any
middle-men that may be
in between (such as marketers, etc.), how much is
actually going toward the
manufacturing of these
knives? Remember, from
this amount, a profit must
be made as well.
If you are looking to
start a good quality knife
collection, you should
purchase knives that are
made from high-carbon
stainless steel. The highcarbon content in stainless steel is what ensures
the steel is strong. This is
very important for keeping a sharp edge. Any
knife can be made from
stainless steel, but unless
it is has a high-carbon
content as well, it will lose
its sharpness very quickly

in comparison. Start with


a standard Chefs knife.
Other than for bread cutting, this is the most versatile knife one can have
in the kitchen, and can be
used for almost any application. It offers a rounded
top edge of the blade that
facilitates a rocking motion to ease most cutting/
slicing preparations.
The next knife one
should purchase for their
collection is a good quality serrated knife for bread
cutting. The serrated edge
will not only produce perfect slices of bread without squashing the bread;
it also brings relief to producing extremely thin cuts
of fruits and vegetables.
One should also purchase a paring knife because a chefs knife might
be overkill for those small
jobs. These are the three
main knives that should
grace the starting foundation of your knife collection. From this point on,
you can proceed to adding other knives such as
a carving knife, filet knife,
cleaver, vegetable knife,
etc.
Most good quality
knives will offer a full tang,
meaning that the steel
blade will run through the
full length of the handle as
well. This will offer more
balance and control. Most
importantly, ask questions and ask to handle the

knives to ensure they offer


a comfortable companionship with your unique
hand. If a retail store is not
informative about their
products, and will not allow you to handle them,
then take your business to
one that will.
Dear Chef Dez:
I am already assuming that you will not recommend buying those
full sets of knives for a really low price from TV, but
they must be good if they
offer a lifetime guarantee
that they will never need
sharpening. How can they
do this? Is there a catch?
Doris B.
Dear Doris:
I am assuming that
the knives you are referring to are the same that
I have seen. Although
they are stainless steel,
they offer a very low carbon content which makes
them very soft steel in
comparison, and thus less
expensive to manufacture.
Since all of the edges on
these knives are serrated,
they will keep their sharpness for a longer period of
time than a straight edged
knife, because the cutting
is achieved by tearing at
the food rather than slicing through it. They can
offer a lifetime guaran-

tee because they play on

Chances are if they ever
do need sharpening/replacing, one is not go-

The Tooth Fairy Tells All

By JEFF PEARSON

agically fl ying from pillow to pillow late every evening has been a
nightly routine for the busy Tooth Fairy
ever since little children have been losing
their baby teeth. When a childs tooth
falls out they should tell their Mom or
Dad and then place the tooth under their
pillow at bedtime. Once the good little
girls and boys of the world are asleep she
magically flies into their bedrooms, gently lifts their pillow and collects the tooth.

If the children are good I leave some


money or a surprise for them, the Tooth
Fairy said. I have a list of good kids and
naughty kids that I make, and I also call
their parents to make sure the children
are cleaning their teeth regularly.
It is very important that children do
not eat too many candies or drink pop,
the Tooth Fairy said. The teeth she collects are used to make a magical Fairy
Dust that she uses to disappear just incase the children wake up while she is
there. I can not use teeth with lots of

cavities for my magical fairy dust, so if I


find a bad tooth under the pillow I sometimes leave a toothbrush, the Tooth
Fairy said.
Good little children all over the world
are brushing and fl ossing their teeth in
hopes the nice Tooth Fairy will come
to their pillow. Children must also remember to listen to their parents and
go to bed early, because I can not come
if they are up past bedtime, the Tooth
Fairy said.

IN MEMORIAM
In Memory of
EUNICE M. ERICKSON
FEBRUARY 6TH, 2015
Your memory is a keepsake
from which well never part.
God has you in his arms,
we have you in our hearts.
Always loved,
always remembered.
Lois, George and family,
Karen, Ken and family.

Mom passed away at Comox Valley Senior Village, Courtney, BC at the age of 83, with her daughter Jeanne by her side.
Marg was predeceased by her husbands, Bill Low and Bob
Paxton, parents Mary and Jack Deacon and brother Bob Deacon.
Marg is survived by sister Mary Vuginier, children Jeanne
(George) Endall, Jim (Zoria) Low, Tom (Barb) Low, Murray Low and stepchildren Marshall (Jackie) Paxton and Barb
(Tom) Low. Mom counted 10 grandchildren, Becky, Cathy,
Sadie, Jackson, Bobbi-Jo, Mike, Jodi, Steven, David and Becky,
and 17 great grandchildren as her own and loved them all
profoundly. She stressed to them the importance of having a
good education, always trying your very best, paying attention
to your health, and learning to occupy your spare time with
positive activities like the arts, sports and learning to swim.
Marg was a devoted Registered Nurse/Public Health Nurse
in Manitoba for 40 years. She was very compassionate and
conscientious about care to her patients and was proud that
she was instrumental in the vaccination drive to eradicate
polio from the province during the early 1960s. She enjoyed
reunions with her lifelong friends, the 1954 graduating class
of Grace General Hospital, Winnipeg, was a lifetime member of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, enjoyed curling, bowling, golf
and swimming and was very active until fall of 2012 when
Alzheimers disease made these activities difficult for her.
Margs family would like to express our thanks to Comox
Valley Senior Complex Care Unit staff for their amazing care
in the life and the dignity provided her in her passing. We
would also like to express our gratitude to all her friends and
family who have supported and loved her over the years.
Mom was one of a kind, fiercely independent and determined to live life on her terms. She will be sadly missed by
her family, extended family and many wonderful friends.
Mom has been cremated and a private Celebration of Life service will be held at Foxwarren, Manitoba in late spring 2016.
