Theophile (Theo) Warrian (nee Werbicki)

It is with sadness that the family of Theophile (Theo) Warrian announces her passing, after a brief illness, on March 19, 2012 at St. Boniface Hospital, at the age of 94.

Theo was born in 1918 in Sifton, Manitoba, the fourth and middle child of Felix and Catherine (Skolmoski) Werbicki.  The family later moved to a farm in Dickson district, in the R.M. of Dauphin, and it was there she met Garnet Warrian.  They married in 1940 and settled on the Warrian property on The Old Lake Road where they farmed together until 1987 when they bought a home on Davidson Ave, in Dauphin. They had three children, Garnet, Keith and Betty.

Born at a time and in circumstances that prevented her from attending university, she dreamed of sending her children there: schoolwork always came before anything else, even if it meant extra work for her. She was rewarded by seeing both of her sons graduate from Medicine and her daughter from Pharmacy at the University of Manitoba. Theo also set a high standard for herself and brought a fine intelligence, excellent memory and strict self-discipline to becoming a great cook, seamstress, knitter and gardener. An avid card player, she liked nothing better than playing cribbage, bridge or canasta with family and friends.  Being an active member of the Dauphin United Church Women gave Theo an opportunity to make many friends and utilize her baking skills.  She loved being with her family and made many trips to Alabama, British Columbia, Ontario and Winnipeg to visit children and grandchildren.

Theo was predeceased by her husband, Garnet in 1988; by her brothers, Walter (Dauphin), Joe (St. Catherine’s, ON), Adolphe (Dauphin), Vincent (Mississauga, ON) and Albert (Dauphin); her sister, Lil Korpan (Dauphin); her sister-in-law, Bunny Werbicki (Walter) and brother-in-law, Mike Korpan (Lil), her nephew, Dennis Werbicki and niece, Debbie Werbicki.

She is survived by:  Dr. Garnet and Rita Warrian (Dauphin), Dr. Garnet Warrian, Jr. and Despina Tsourpis (Vancouver), Deirdre Warrian and Shayne, Madison and Thomas Montpetit (Dauphin); Dr. Keith and Lauran Warrian (Winnipeg), Allison Warrian and Sonny Leader (Winnipeg), Dr. Kevin Warrian and Hsiu-Yan Chan (London, ON); Betty and Dr. Jim Harrow (Alexander City, AL), Aynsley Harrow and Eric Mull (Atlanta, GA); sisters-in-law, Mary (Joe), Pearl (Adolphe) and Josie (Vincent) Werbicki and Liliah Wager (Edmonton); and many nieces and nephews.

Our family wishes to thank Dr. Jason Scott, Dr. Johan Rauch and the staff at the Dauphin Hospital, and Dr. Clifford Yaffe, his surgical team and the staff at St. Boniface Hospital, for the excellent care their mother received during her illness. A special thank-you goes to the staff and residents of Lorray Manor, Dauphin, for their friendship, kindness, support – and all the many card games she played there.

A gathering of friends and family to celebrate her life was held on Friday, July 27, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. from the Dauphin First United Church.  Interment followed in the Dauphin Riverside Cemetery on Saturday, July 28, 2012.

In keeping with Theo’s wishes, if friends so desire, donations in her memory may be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, The Heart and Stroke Building,

Next to farming and a love for cattle, Don’s other interests included traveling, camping, curling, and most of all visiting with neighbours, family, and friends.

Don was always happy to have two daughters and sons-in-law that lived so close and he felt very lucky to have his four grandchildren in his life.  He always told them stories and entertained them with his jokes and quick wit.

Stanley Christopher Masiowski

It is with deep sadness that the family announces the passing of STANLEY CHRISTOPHER MASIOWSKI, at the age of 91 years, of Dauphin, MB.  On Sunday, July 15, with his wife, Jean, at his side, Stan was called Home, while in the Parkland Regional Health Authority.

Stan was born on October 15, 1920 on his family farm in the Mossey River Municipality to John and Nastia (Kotlarchuk).  He went to the North Lake School, and helped at home, and at most of the neighbours in his area.  Stan left home and worked for a farmer, close to Rapid City and in the fall of 1941, he joined the R.C.E. of the Armed Forces in Winnipeg, MB.  His training was in Portage La Prairie, MB, Dundurn, SK, Chilliwack, BC, and other Army Camps throughout BC.  In 1944, Stan boarded the New Amsterdam, and sailed for Scotland, then by train to Farhbrough, England.  A few weeks later, when in France with the Eighth Canadian Field Squadron, he was sweeping the roads for mines, building the Bailly Bridges through parts of France and all of Belgium and parts of Holland.  While building a bridge at Moerstraten, Stan was wounded, and went back to Brussels where he underwent an operation and then went to England for the winter.  By mid-March, he was well enough to go back into “action”, so sailed across the Channel to Belguim, trucked all the way to Germany where he picked up more mines and built more bridges.  War was soon over and he went to Bad Zqischenahn, where he attended the V-E Day Parade.  Then Stan moved to Holland, and during that summer, he met his wife, Anita, and they were married in the fall at Zwolle.  Returning to Fork River, they farmed until 1953, when they moved to Flin Flon never to return to farming again.

Stan worked for Mid-West Drilling Co. until being hired by the Hudson Bay Melting and Smelting in 1955. They raised three children, son John-Stan Jr., and daughters Hermien and Bev.  In 1978, Anita passed on, and in 1979, Stan retired, spending time traveling, reacquainting with his families.

In the next years, Stan met a very special someone, Jean (Sklar) Mullen, whom he took on their first date to the Rice Lake Midnight Frolic. They were married in 1981 and have since resided in Dauphin. Together they worked side-by-side, as caretakers at Happy Haven, until they decided to take up retirement full time. This meant spending many, many days fishing and camping, lots of time gardening together, and lots and lots of time visiting with family and friends.  Stan’s family now grew with Jean’s three children.  Step-sons, Rodney and Blaine Mullen, and Step-daughter, Darlene Mullen-Dudar.

There were many happy times spent dancing, laughing, telling stories, playing cards and games, and visiting.  Stan loved to see everyone and was always happy for the visitors dropping by.  He always took the time to help everyone and loved spending time in their beautiful backyard, especially admiring one of his favorite flowers-in their” field of cosmos”.  Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren were especially precious.  Everyone got a HUG when walking in the door, and also got a HUG when walking out the door.  He loved and adored by his whole family, and he was loved and adored by his whole family.

If love could have saved you-you would have lived forever.

Left to cherish fond memories and lovingly missing you will be his wife of 30 years, Jean, his son, John-Stan Jr. (Christine) Masiowski, daughters, Hermien Masiowski and Bev (Bob) Davis, and grandchildren Christopher Masiowski and Jennifer (Derek) Sampson, and great grandchildren Jett and Danica Sampson. Also, left to cherish fond memories, are Jean’s children, Rodney (Laurie) Mullen, Blaine (Linda) Mullen, and Darlene (Dennis) Dudar.  He then had additional blessings of more Grandchildren with Robert (Stacey) Mullen, Michelle Mullen, Matthew (Jasmine) Mullen, Sarah (Mark) Adnum, Julie Mullen, Elizabeth Mullen, Michael Mullen (fiancé Samantha), Daniel Mullen, Patrick Mullen, Dwight and Shelley Dudar, Shawn Dudar (special friend Renée), and Marsha and special friend Nick.  Great Grandchildren Riley and Hailey Mullen, Ethan, Hannah and Abigale Adnum, Coraline Mullen, and Cole and Cassie Dudar.

Also survived by Sister Jean Stevens and Sister Anne (Larry) Giroux, Brother Frank (Ethel) Masiowski, and Brother Tom Masiowski, and many nieces and nephews.

Stan was predeceased by his first wife, Anita, in 1978, and by his siblings Joe, Tony, Agnes, Peter, Helen, Nick, Pauline, and Carl.

Memorial service was held on Friday, July 20, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. from the Sneath-Strilchuk Funeral Chapel in Dauphin with Pastor Howard Burnie officiating.  Joanne Mansoff served as organist, and Bruce Childs was the Bugler.  Interment followed in the Fork River Catholic Cemetery.

Finlay John Martin Cameron McLennan

It is with great sadness that the family of Finlay John Martin Cameron McLennan announces his sudden passing on Sunday July 15, 2012 at the Dr. Gendreau Personal Care Home in Ste. Rose, Manitoba.  Dad was 77 years old.

Finlay was born on January 23, 1935, the first child and only son of Dr. Finlay and Gladys Joy McLennan (Martin) in Ochre River, Manitoba.  He attended school and lived most of the rest of his life in Ochre River until moving to Ste. Rose in 2010.  In 1962 he married the love of his life Wilma Skeavington on April 21 in a ceremony at the United Church in Sperling Manitoba.  The happy couple settled in Ochre River and in 1966 they welcomed their first child Robert Finlay who was soon followed by Roberta Joy (1969) and then Kathy Lynn (1973).  Finlay worked for a number of years with Golden Guernsey Dairy as a delivery driver.  The last 12 years of his work life were spent with the Alcoholism Foundation of Manitoba at the Willard Monson Institute in Ste. Rose where he worked until retiring in 1992.

Since he was the son of a country doctor and nurse the home he grew up in doubled as the general hospital for Ochre River and area.  As a boy he assisted his father and mother in a variety of medical procedures including the setting of broken bones, stitches, amputations and the occasional birth.  He would also assist in the provision of end of life care for people who spent their last days in his house under the care of his father.  This had a profound effect on dad and he developed a great respect and empathy for the sick and injured as well as a deep appreciation for life itself and its fragile nature.

Away from his home Finlay enjoyed a wide variety of pursuits which included music, he played both the piano and the drums, and athletics, he was a very good baseball player and boxer.  He was rarely seen without his dogs Trixie and Toby.

The overriding passion of Finlay’s life was his family, he was happiest when he was at home with Wilma and the kids either gathered around the piano playing his favorite songs, or in the yard playing catch.  He was a devoted, loving, caring father and husband.  He was as well a selfless and generous man who would give the shirt off his back to a stranger if he thought they needed it more than he did.  He readily and willingly gave to various charities and causes.  Dad’s door was always open to anyone that needed assistance of any kind or a compassionate ear.  He also had a very playful, subtle sense of humor which only those who knew him best got to witness.  He had an insatiable thirst for history especially the war years and he would read book after book about both world wars and the major battles of each war.  He was also an unofficial historian of Ochre River and had an uncanny ability, even into his later years, to recall events and people that had long faded from other’s memory.

He was very involved in the United Church in Ochre River as a member of the church choir and then in later years as the caretaker for the church.  He was also a regular performer at the Ochre River variety/talent shows where he could always be counted on to perform a couple of high tempo numbers on the piano.

Finlay was predeceased by his father Dr. Finlay McLennan and his mother Gladys Joy McLennan (Martin), and son-in-law Randy Shippam.

Left behind to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 50 years Wilma, his son Rob (Rhonda) McLennan; his daughters Roberta Shippam, and Kathy (Wayne) Robinson ; his grandchildren Garth, Lara, Chenessa, Payton, Max, Sam, and Kaylee; his sister Marlyn Banister and half -sister Nancy Baker as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.

The McLennan family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff of the Dr. Gendreau Personal Care home in Ste. Rose for making dad’s last year and a half of his life comfortable and enjoyable.

A memorial service celebrating Finlay’s life was held on Thursday, July 19, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. at the Ochre River United Church with Rev. Ed and Georgina Loucks officiating.  The eulogy was delivered by his loving son Rob and nephew Darin Banister.  Interment followed in the Ochre River Cemetery.  Active pallbearers were Finlay’s cousin’s Glen Henry and Wayne Martin, his grandson Garth McLennan, his nephews Brad and Darin Banister and Mark Dracass.  All of Finlay’s friends are to be considered as Honorary Pallbearers.

In lieu of flowers, Finlay’s family asks that donations be made to the Ochre River Community Foundation.

Arrangements were entrusted to Sneath-Strilchuk Funeral Services with funeral homes in Dauphin, Roblin and Ste. Rose du Lac.
