Following a two year struggle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Pauline passed away in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec on December 16, 2014, at the age of 67 years. A funeral mass was held in St. Hyacinthe, on December 22, 2014. The eldest of six children, Pauline was born to Paul and Jeannette ( Chagnon) on December 14, 1947, in Pine Falls, Manitoba. In 1965 after graduating from Powerview Collegiate, she moved to Quebec to join the religious community of the Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Hyacinthe. During this 28 year vocation she graduated from the University of Manitoba and taught in schools in The Pas, Eriksdale, and Winnipeg. In 1990, Pauline followed up on her missioning dream by moving to Lesotho, Africa, where she taught English as a Second Language ( ESL) to adults. In 1993, she returned to Canada, left religious life, settled in Quebec and started her own business as an ESL teacher ( Bi- ComPlus). She offered translation and interpretation services in various parts of Canada, USA, Brazil and Lesotho. She saw this work as a means of building bridges between cultural groups - her way of creating a better world. Throughout her life, prayer and meditation played an important role in Pauline’s daily ritual. She was actively involved in a number of organizations in the school system, as well as locally and internationally, e. g. Development and Peace and environmental issues. Her interests included aqua- gym, watercolour art, sewing and crafts and outings with friends. In later life, she became an avid gardener and a passionate landscaper. During her cancer years, Pauline focused on gratitude for all that life had given her and on strengthening ties with family and friends. A woman of deep faith, courage and independence, Pauline will be sadly missed by all who knew her. She was predeceased by her mother, Jeannette ( Chagnon) in 2005 and her father, Paul in 2012. She leaves to mourn her passing five siblings: Cécile ( Harry Skene), Maurice ( Odile St. Pierre), Annette ( Ronald Chevrefils), Diane, Denise ( Ian Cyr), as well as nephews, nieces, great- nephews, great- niece, aunts, uncles, cousins and numerous friends in Manitoba, Quebec, Lesotho and Brazil. Pauline’s family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to the compassionate staff of the Hotel- Dieu Palliative Care Unit in St. Hyacinthe, QC, where she spent the last two months of her life, to her many friends in Quebec, especially Lucie, Sylvie and Claudette for their friendship and support, and to all those who spent prayerful time with Pauline and her family during this difficult phase of her life. In keeping with her environmental concerns and her values as an educator Pauline made a “ final” major decision of donating her body to research. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook Street, Winnipeg, MB R3C 2B7.

MARY BOCH Mom ( Baba) passed away peacefully on the morning of March 28, 2015, at Betel Home in Selkirk, at the age of 91 years. Mom was predeceased by her husband, Walter on July 22, 2004, her parents William and Matrona Stolar and brothers Philip, Alex, Joe, Peter and Ed. Left to cherish her memory are her three sons, David ( Audrey), Wayne ( Peggy), and Ralph ( Sharon); six grandchildren Darren ( Kristy), Kerri ( Brett), Lisa ( Rick), Jeff ( Nicole), Chantel ( Dustin) and Kyle ( Brittany); seven great- grandchildren Kamryn, Dawson, Ethan, Noah, Logan, Ryan and Tobin. She is also survived by one sister Lena; one brother John ( Ella) and sisters- in- law Rose, Polly, and Stella; in addition to numerous nephews and nieces. Mom was born on September 11, 1923 in Teulon but she lived the majority of her life in various parts of the municipality of St. Andrews. It was at a very young age while living on her parents farm in St. Andrews, that she developed a love for farming, gardening and animals. Mom first met dad, son of a farmer, in 1941 at a Christmas function and it didn’t take her long to realize that they were meant to be together because dad also loved farming and the rural life. The result was that they were married a short time later in 1942. What followed for the next 40 plus years was a life of farming and hard work on three different farms all in St. Andrews municipality. In the 1980s, dad and mom moved to their retirement home on George Street near St. Andrews Airport, site of their first farm. Mom spent the last year and a half of her life at Betel Home where she received excellent attention and care. Mom's happiest years were on the three farms. She was an outdoors person and loved the routines involved with farming, gardening and raising livestock. Mom was an excellent cook and nothing gave her greater satisfaction than preparing meals from our own vegetables and livestock. She always maintained that commercially prepared foods were tasteless and contained harmful chemicals. As a parent mom's advice to us was always simple and can best be summed up in nine words " Don't smoke, don't drink and get a good education." Mom's advice was mostly followed and she was very proud of us. She often referred to us as her three jewels. Mom was also very proud of her six grandchildren and seven great- grandchildren. On numerous occasions she showered each of them with kisses and hugs followed by a verbal reminder " Remember, baba loves you." We all love you, mom ( baba) and we will miss you immensely but we find comfort in knowing that you will be reunited with dad and other loved ones. A Funeral Mass celebrating mom’s life will be held on Tuesday, April 7, at 10: 30 a. m. in the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, in Rossdale, MB, on Donald Rd. Interment will follow in the Parish cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in memory of mom to the Blessed Virgin Mary Cemetery Maintenance Fund.

After his retirement, Ed thoroughly enjoyed helping his son with his metal fabricating business. The pay wasn’t good, but it was “ the best time of his life”. Those who know Ed know about his passion for dirt track racing. Friday night racing in Grand Forks was a weekly adventure for more than 30 years that many friends and family members enjoyed with him. The only thing Ed loved more than racing was sharing it with all those that accompanied him.

Ligaya will also be missed by family and friends in the Philippines, Canada and around the world. Ligaya was born on August 2, 1938 in Manila, Philippines and grew up with a passion for the Tagalog language. After graduating magna cum laude, she taught at the University of the Philippines and authored several grammar texts which have been utilized in the Philippine educational curriculum. She created a Tagalog dictionary, translated into English the two seminal novels by Jose Rizal and included Tom Sawyer and Little Women among the literary classics she translated from English to Tagalog. Ligaya inspired a lifelong love for knowledge in the many students she mentored. In Winnipeg, she taught Pilipino at the University of Manitoba and was a beloved teacher at John M. King School and Magdaragat Philippines Inc. Ligaya’s commitment to her students continued even after class time ended. She learned dances and songs from different cultures which she shared with her students to give them a better understanding of one another. She established scholarships in the Philippines to assist students through their post- secondary education. Ligaya led the Mabuhay Serenaders through the sweet harmonies of traditional Philippine folk songs and contemporary popular music. She knew no bounds in her creativity. In retirement, she explored painting and different dance forms, remained active with the Philippine Heritage Council of Manitoba and continued to write. Many in Winnipeg’s Filipino community waited patiently for each installment of her stories in The Pilipino Express and The Filipino Journal. Ligaya had courage to pursue what interested her. Her faith was an anchor she relied on when she had doubts and fears. She always remembered her humble beginnings and treated people with respect and dignity. She loved good food, intellectual debates and laughter. But most of all, she loved the company of her family and friends. Ligaya’s family would like to thank Drs. Milambiling, Dr. Borys and Team and the 4th and 5th floor staff of Victoria General Hospital for their compassionate care and kindness. A special thank- you to her dearest friends and the daily homecare workers who brightened her days with much love, inspiration and support.
