TEST TEST ANDREY CAPLAP December 10, 1920 - February 24, 2006 PEACEFULLY Andrey was a good, hardworking man. His simple focus from a young age was to create a better life for his family. From Western Ukraine, his strong faith carried him through the hardships of war; nursing his future wife to health in post- war Eurpope; immigrating to Winnipeg’s north end with the proverbial $ 7.00 in his pocket - wife Maria and baby son John in tow; and labouring to “ make good”. Children Gerry and Helen followed over the years. He always kept in touch with his family roots and provided for them as well. He lived on to enjoy the fruits of his labour through a 20 year retirement. Andrey has reunited with John ( 1996), Helen ( 2004) and loving wife Maria ( 2005). He is sadly missed by son Gerry ( Nancy) and granddaughter Heather. Divine Liturgy will be celebrated 2: 00 p. m., Tuesday, February 28 at St. Andrew’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, 160 Euclid Ave. with Fr. L. Ratushniak, C. Ss. R. officiating.

He also leaves many nieces, nephews, great- nieces and great- nephews whom he loved very much. There were few community sports and service groups that Ralph did not participate, from President of the Steelers, to baseball, Kiwanis, Rotary, ARC Ind., and the Selkirk Golf Club. However, his most enjoyable times were spent with children. His love and pride for his three sons was immeasurable. There was no limit to his patience and understanding for children. If he wasn’t coaching baseball etc., or showing Tanner how to golf in the back lane, he was guiding them all in the construction of birdhouses. Grandchildren could do no wrong. You’ll be sadly missed but part of you lives in all of us. A memorial service will be held Tuesday, February 28 at 11: 00 a. m. in the Gilbart Funeral Chapel, Selkirk with pastor Stan Richards officiating.

I am standing on the seashore. A ship spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the ocean. She is an object of beauty and I stand watching her, ‘ Til at last she fades on the horizon. And someone says, “ She is gone.” Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. The loss of sight is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone says, “ She is gone,” There are other voices who are watching her coming, Other voices take up the glad shout, “ Here she comes!” Arrangements entrusted to CROPO FUNERAL CHAPEL 586- 8044 ALBERT DHEILLY Peacefully at the St. Claude Hospital on Friday, February 24, 2006, Mr. Albert DHeilly of Haywood, MB passed away at the age of 83 years.

Dorothy is sincerely missed by the above members and her many nieces and nephews. Born on March 18, 1932, Sexsmith, AB, Dorothy was raised in Altona, MB.

Strong in her own religious belief, she continued to belong to a bible group and a church member along side her good friend, Dolores. An avid reader of her bible, which she had many, she also was an enthusiastic reader and keen researcher of new authors. Once a fearful novice, she became an adept fan of the Internet’s many search engines.

Donna was born February 18, 1938 in Innisfail, AB. This prairie gal fell in love with her cowboy, Jim and she married him on October 2, 1957 in Climax, SK. Their 48 years together began in the Stone area, just south of Tompkins, SK. They moved to Val Marie where Dad worked for the PFRA, and then took their two children to Manitoba in 1963. They settled in the Ashern area in 1967 where they established Sleepy Hollow Simmentals. Mom was an avid gardener. She enjoyed fishing, reading and writing. She was always very involved in every aspect of ranch life - No. 1 cowhand! Donna worked off- farm as a school teacher and a secretary for Ashern Agencies. She was secretary for Manitoba Agriculture for 27 years, retiring in 1998. She enjoyed her grandchildren a great deal. The recent addition of a great- grandson brought her much joy. Donna was strong and determined. She got breast cancer in 1983, which she battled for two and one half years. 20 years later, she began her fight with lymphoma. She won the first round, and the second but the last had proved to be too much for her. The Lord saw that she was suffering and took her to be with Him. Her last wish was that her family take her home from Concordia Hospital to die. She wanted to be with her family and her pets, in the sanctuary that was her home. Mom faced death with quiet acceptance, grace and dignity. Her only concern was for her family, as we held her and said farewell. Her last words, " This must be so hard on all of you" spoke volumes about the kind of woman she was. She was predeceased by her father Charles and her brother Gordon. Donna is survived by her husband Jim; her son Patrick; her daughter Colleen ( Jack); four grandchildren, Rylee and Chelsea, Jalleen ( Jeff) and Justin; one great- grandson Tyler; her mother Hazel; brothers, Melvin, Douglas ( Diane), and Kenneth; sisters- in- law, Lorna and Joan ( Errol); a brother- in- law John ( Tammy); three nieces, Karen, Lisa and Terri and two nephews, Marty and Jamie. The family would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and health care workers who have cared for her over the years. Cremation has taken place.
