Ed was born in Melrose, Manitoba and at an early age began to work on the family farm. Ed considered himself a handyman, but often had to call someone to fix or finish what he had started. As he got older, he decided to head west, first to Saskatoon and then to Alberta. He knew within days of arriving in Calgary that, that was the place he wanted to live; and he did so for nearly 50 years. Ed worked for Greyhound as a bus driver from 1972 until his retirement in 2001, after that, he still drove for a freight company for several more years. He often boasted about having driven four million miles in his career. Ed was a very special person who touched the lives of many by his kindness and generosity. He always thought about others before himself and will be missed by all that knew him. He is survived and remembered forever by his two sisters, Violet Rosmus and Helen Loster, niece Dawn Loster, nephew Jason Loster ( Kelly), great- niece Morgan Loster, former spouse Sonja Rosmus and their children Charlene and Roger.

Born April, 14, 1926 in Kamsack, Saskatchewan, Helen trained and worked as a hairdresser in Winnipeg before meeting and marrying Morris Stefura, who ran a successful cartage business in Winnipeg for many years. While Helen was 89 when she passed, until recently, she enjoyed good health, and led an independent life. Helen enjoyed travelling, taking many trips to Australia, across Canada and overseas, many of these trips with Faye and her family. A sociable woman, Helen loved meeting up with old friends and new, and she enjoyed many a coffee morning and many a happy hour with family and friends. She enjoyed people wherever she went, and she had a wide circle of friends that she kept in touch with over many years. Helen was a stalwart at many basketball games, supporting her granddaughters Pamela and Emily and their teams. Helen was also active in the Clifton Ladies Bowling League for many years and enjoyed her teams’ successes or not so much success as the case may have been! In later years she took up lawn bowling and could also sometimes be enticed into a game of shuffleboard in her building. Helen was a woman who enjoyed life and living, had a smile for everyone, had a wicked sense of humour and an innate interest in the stories and lives of others. She was known as Nana to nearly everyone. The family would like to thank the staff at St Boniface Hospital for their compassion and care of Helen as her health deteriorated as well as to so many friends and family.
