POLWARTH: It is with great sorrow that the family announce the passing of Lauree Polwarth at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on June 27, 2002 at the age of 73 years, after a courageous battle with cancer. Mom will be sadly missed by her husband, Al, of 47 years, daughters Colleen (Stew) Lewis of Minne-dosa and their children Morgan, Gillian and Matthew, and Vonna (John) Swaenepoel of Regina and their children Frank (Kelly) and George. Also surviving are her sister Eleanor (Glen) Henderson of Reston, brother Fred (Hazel) Stonehouse of Reston, sister Mary Lynn Bird of B.C. and numerous nieces and nephews. Mom was predeceased by her parents, Fred and Mary Stonehouse of Reston, and son Ian.

Mom married Al on June 4, 1955 and moved from Souris to the farm northwest of ( Souris in 1960. Mom was a housewife, bookkeeper, mother and even truck driver on occasion.

Although mom’s passion was Bowers, she became interested in genealogy, enjoyed playing the piano and, more particularly, entertaining with the band at the Personal Care Home, Victoria Park Lodge and Crescent Manor on her violin. There would have to be something very important to come up in order for her to miss coffee with the gals or getting together with the birthday group where one never knew whose birthday would be celebrated.
