Glen is survived by two sons, Larry ( Cairns, Australia) and Ken ( Bonnyville, AB) and their wives Barbara and Mary; daughter- in- law Terri; nine grandchildren, Scott, Erin, Shelley, Jessica, Kelly, Tim, Glenn, Kaatrina, and Anneke; and three great- grandchildren, Zachary, Flynn, and Cooper. He was predeceased by his wife Doris, father Fred, mother Bertha, sister Dorothy, and son Neil. Glen spent most of his childhood in Bradwell, SK. Growing up, he enjoyed the small- town life, particularly curling with his father, Fred, and horse- riding with friends. Shortly after beginning his career with the CNR, Glen met Doris, Bradwell’s new schoolteacher, and the two were married in 1947. Glen’s work in the 1950’ s as a station agent took the young family to several small towns in Saskatchewan, including Glenbush and Rabbit Lake. In 1961 he was promoted and the family moved to Saskatoon where he worked as an operator and dispatcher. Glen's career with the CNR continued to move forward and in 1970 he took a promotion to Winnipeg, then on to The Pas in 1974, and finally to Saskatoon in 1977, where he was the Chief Superintendent of the Prairie Region. Glen retired from the CNR in 1980. He then took a position in Vancouver with the Canadian Transport Commission where he worked for six years as an Accident Investigation Officer. In 1987 Glen and Doris settled in Glenwood Village, a townhouse community in Surrey, BC. They lived happily amongst friends at Glenwood until 2005 when failing health required them to move to Sturgeon Creek Retirement Residence in Winnipeg. Glen was a “ railroader” through and through, dedicated to his work with the CN. He was also dedicated to the CN social life, and “ GBG”, as many of his railroad pals affectionately knew him, was always ready for the next get- together or celebration that he frequently enjoyed with his many friends. His great sense of humour, and that Irish twinkle in his eyes, made him a joyful blessing to friends and family alike. Glen also had a strong love of horses since childhood, and some of his happiest years were spent during his retirement in Surrey, BC, where with the help of some good friends, he owned and raced standard- breds at the Cloverdale track. All who knew Glen were touched by his warmth and charm, and even his quick Irish temper will always be remembered with smiles, love, and laughter. He was a strong, caring father and a loyal, loving husband. Family and friends will greatly miss him. The family would like to thank St. Boniface Hospital, Palliative Care Unit, for providing such fine care during Glen's final days. A family memorial service will be at a later date. Remembrances may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook St., Winnipeg, MB, R3C 187, in Glen's memory. Chapel Lawn 885- 9715 GARY L. HARPMAN The family of Gary L.

TERRANCE JACOB GERYLO 1951 - 2008 Suddenly on Wednesday June 11, Terrance ( Terry) Jacob Gerylo passed away at home with his daughter by his side. He is sadly missed by his wife Debbie of 33 years, daughter Reanna " Peanut", and son Michael " Cowboy". He was predeceased by his parents, Michael and Jean. Family and friends were important to Terry and there are so many that have been devastated by his sudden death. This includes his brother and sisters: Don, Marlene ( Ken), Valerie ( Terry), Darlene ( Jim) and numerous nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his uncle Peter Gerylo. Terry visited his uncle on a weekly basis, not out of duty but out of love. It is evident from the outpouring of support that the family has received what a wonderful and kind man he was. His pets also held a special place in his heart, Hershey, his constant companion, and Bailey ( the cat he pretended to hate but which we secretly saw him petting gently out of the corner of our eye). Terry obtained a degree in Business Administration and worked at numerous banks and credit unions over the course of his career as a general manager. Those who have had the opportunity to experience his cooking know that he missed his true calling. His appetizers were artistic creations, he spent a great amount of time on their presentation ( sometimes one was reluctant to eat them as they were so carefully crafted). No one could resist and of course they were divine. He loved cooking for family and friends on all occasions and especially looked forward to every Easter and Christmas in preparing our traditional Ukrainian dishes. He was also known for his amazing " lake breakfasts" which took hours to prepare, enjoying every minute with friends and family. Another love of Terry's was his cabin at Big Whiteshell Lake, which they purchased in 1996. It quickly became a second home for the family and many of us have spent time there enjoying Terry and Debbie's hospitality. The lake is an important part of Reanna and Michael's family life and they will never forget the time they spent there with their Mom and Dad. Terry also enjoyed travelling ( once he arrived at the destination), fishing, grouse hunting and had recently taken up oil painting. There is too little space to say all that needs to be said. He was a strong and stoic man with the biggest heart ever. Always humble, kind and considerate, that was Terry. And above all, devoted to his wife and children. How blessed we were to have him for the time we did. From Debbie: Terry has been the love of my life since I was 16. I saw him in the high school gym and knew I had to make him mine. He also felt that connection. The phone rang and it was him. We have been inseparable since. We belonged together of that there was no doubt, not even two provinces could keep us apart. We married and had our kids and we were going to celebrate our 34th anniversary on October 12. No one could make me laugh like he did. We always laughed. I was his princess and we were the only ones for each other. Forever and Ever, he will be in my heart. Amen. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, June 17, at 1: 00 p. m. in the Gilbart Funeral Chapel, Selkirk, MB. Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk in care of arrangements. RICHARD HERBERT KITCHEN April 29, 1948 – June 7, 2008 It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Richard after his courageous battle with cancer. Richard leaves to mourn his daughter, JoAnne and grandson Joel of Flin Flon; sisters Judy ( Ron) Black of Flin Flon and Verna ( Ed) Erlendson of Qualicum Beach, BC; and six nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Gordon and Alice Kitchen of Snow Lake and former wife Nelia. Residing in Winnipeg for a number of years, Richard enjoyed his employment at Jeld- Wen. Many thanks to the doctors and staff in I. C. U. at Concordia Hospital. Special thanks to Caroline and Kim for their comfort. In compliance with Richard’s wishes, no formal funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the donor’s choice. TEST TEST GERALDINE T.

She was predeceased by her son Charles; maternal parents Fred and Mabel Eberle; brother Raymond; paternal parents Charles and Lena Grabowsky and stepmother Lydia Grabowsky ( Woitt). Born on August 14, 1925 in Toronto, Ontario, Mom spent her early years in Pine Grove and Woodbridge, Ontario. Mom and Dad married on March 13, 1943 and during the war years lived in Ontario for a short period of time. They later moved to Brunkild, MB where they farmed and raised their four sons. The family moved to Fort Garry and later moved to a rural acreage in La Broquerie. They later retired to St. Vital in Winnipeg. Mom loved her precious sons and adored her grandchildren and great- grandchildren. She was a kind, caring, generous and hard working soul who always favoured the less fortunate.

Kathleen died peacefully, showing her characteristic determination and energy to the end of her life. Born and raised in Winnipeg, the highlight of Betty’s younger years was serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force ( 1942 to 1946) stationed in Lethbridge and Ottawa. During that time she met and married Alex. Together they raised four children in Winnipeg and enjoyed many happy hours involved in the social life of Charleswood, and entertaining friends at their “ L’il Elm” farm. Betty also worked for many years for the Hudson’s Bay Company and InnerCity Gas in Winnipeg. In 1993 she decided to take on a new life, a new city ( Calgary) and a renewed name – Kathleen. Kathleen’s greatest pride and joy was her grandchildren: Emma, Izzy, Michael, Garth and Ian. Kathleen was predeceased by her husband Alexander Glenn, son Michael Alexander, brothers Gus, Frank, Jack and Gerry Brownrigg and her sister Peggy Waksdale. She is survived by her children Will ( Barb), Tacey and Rosemary ( Raulph), her grandchildren, her sister Patricia, and numerous nieces and nephews. We are so grateful to the many health care angels Kathleen found in Calgary. Dr. Martin Davies and the staff at the Mount Royal College Wellness Centre helped her stay happily independent as long as possible, and then the exceptional people at the Father Lacombe Care Centre provided the best kind of compassionate care. Companion Mary R. magically turned Mom’s confusion to joy and laughter during her last two years. If friends wish, donations to the Father Albert Lacombe Home Society, 332 - 146 Ave., SE, Calgary, AB T2X 2A3, or a seniors’ support group of your choice would be appreciated.
