Pappy will also be sadly missed by 11 grandchildren and four great- grandchildren, all who “ played the fiddle on their pappy’s knee.” He will also be remembered by his sister Edith Bartlett; brother George ( Margaret); in- laws and many nieces and nephews who considered him their “ favourite uncle.” He is now reunited with his parents Theo and Daisy; sisters, Geraldine ( Dean) Whyte, Fern Stadfeld, Margaret Langton; granddaughter Erin Boychuk; and numerous in- laws and cousins. Harvey was born at Poplar Lake near Hodgson, Manitoba, and attended schools at Fisherton and Hodgsonville before joining the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa during the Second World War. He proudly worked 36 years at the C. P. R. until his retirement in 1982 during which he and Evelyn spent five years wintering in Yuma, AZ, and Vernon, BC and many trips including Hawaii, Mexico, BC, Alaska and Disneyland. He enjoyed many interests including fiddling, hunting, playing cards and tinkering or inventing in his shed. Harvey was always quick with jokes and a great example of good morals and values to his family. He will also be missed by many friends and neighbours at Appleton Estates, especially Lou, Mary Jean, Ivan and Margaret, who are included in a special thank you extended to Concordia Hospital staff for their care and compassion given to Harvey and family. A celebration of Harvey’s life will unfold at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Ave., Friday, October 26, 2007, at 12: 30 p. m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of choice.

HUBERT DREGER Hubert, or Hubie, as he was affectionately called by his friends, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 12, 2007, at Oakview Place in Winnipeg at the age of 69, after a brief illness. Hubert was born on August 15, 1938, in Placiszewo, Poland, and at the age of nine he immigrated to Canada, and Winnipeg, with his parents, Rudolf and Adelgunde Dreger. He lived most of his life in Winnipeg, attending elementary school in the west end of the city, and high school at Daniel McIntyre Collegiate. Hubert served with the Canadian Armed Forces for several years during the 1960s. After being discharged from the Forces, he threw himself wholeheartedly into his chosen profession of computer programming. He received a B. Sc. ( Computer Science Major) from the University of Manitoba in 1979. But even prior to receiving his degree, Hubert had programmed for several major companies including Honeywell Data Services, Manufacturer’s Life, and Statistics Canada in Toronto and Ottawa. After receiving his degree, he worked for Air Canada, the Manitoba Government’s Water Resources Branch, and Comcheq, all of Winnipeg. Hubie loved the games of curling and golf, and had his own unique way of approaching both activities. This different approach seemed to work, as he was quite successful at both sports, winning many trophies and awards over the span of more than 40 years. Hubert was predeceased by both parents. He is survived by two sisters, Elly Schattschneider of White Rock, BC, and Doris Miske of Osoyoos, BC, and a nephew George Schattschneider of Dartmouth, NS. Cremation has taken place and, according to his wishes, Hubert’s ashes are to be spread at one of his favourite golf courses. If anyone wishes additional information, Hubert’s friend Patrick Hailley may be contacted in Winnipeg at 837- 7920. YVONNE MARIE DUCHARME Passed away courageously at home with family at her side on Tuesday, October 16, 2007, at 65 years of age. She is survived by her loving husband and best friend Gerry; children: Michael ( Bei) of Winnipeg, Marc ( Fred) of Winnipeg, Monique Ducharme- Pullen ( Mike) of Kelowna; four grandchildren: Christopher, Katlyn, Drexler, and Tyson; her mother Madeleine Normandeau; siblings: Lorraine ( Dennis), Michelle, Paul ( Judie); her mother- inlaw M’Lena Ducharme; brother- in- law Al ( Joyce) all of Winnipeg; sister- in- law Jaye of California, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her father Raoul and her father- in- law Jean Louis. Born and raised in St. Boniface, Yvonne attended St. Josephs Academy. Following in her mother’s footsteps Yvonne graduated as a registered nurse at St. Boniface hospital. It was practising as a nurse that she met her future husband Gerry in 1961. Married in 1963, together they raised three children, Michael, Marc and Monique. As Gerry’s involvement in public life grew Yvonne left nursing and entered the family insurance business enduring the annual February Autopac crush, often providing baking and hot lunches during the long days. She was a constant presence at Gerry’s side during political campaigns. A tireless worker, she earned tremendous respect for her humour, dignity and grace while canvassing door to door on Gerry’s behalf. Finally in 1994 after a first bout with cancer Mom said “ enough.” It was off to California for retirement. In the years that followed she wintered variously in San Diego, Palm Springs and Arizona. None of which seemed to dampen her enthusiasm for international travel and Yvonne toured the world both with Gerry and with her siblings. Her travels lead her throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. Wonderful as these experiences were; it was the role of Grandmother that Yvonne treasured most. She and Gerry spent her last years in Kelowna, to be with Monique and her husband and most importantly her young grandchildren. Her love of golf flourished at Gallagher’s canyon especially her Thursday morning ladies group. The Ducharme family wishes to thank all for their kind thoughts, prayers and memories during the difficult times of her recent illness. A celebration of Yvonne’s life will be held at Christ The King Church, 847 St. Mary’s Rd., Winnipeg, at 10: 00 a. m. on Monday, October 29, 2007. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Cancer Centre for the Southern Interior, 399 Royal Ave., Kelowna, BC V1Y 5L3. Mom, you were taken to soon and deserved so much more. You will be dearly missed. How do we capture a life so full in a handful of paragraphs? The answer lies in our memories and our love.

CROPO FUNERAL CHAPEL 586- 8044 TEST TEST OLGA DUECK Olga ( Neufeld) Dueck, Mother, Grandmother and Great- Grandmother, passed away peacefully at the age of 89 on October 22, 2007, at Donwood Manor. Olga was predeceased by her first son, William Edward ( Juliana) in 2001. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband William Alexander, and her children, Richard ( Maureen MacDougall), Dr. Gerald ( Dr. Barbara Gfellner) and Sharon ( Eric); and beloved grandchildren Dr. Dorie- Anna ( Phillip Banks) and Trevor; Liana ( Chris Kennedy), Hans and Brendan; and Catherine, Lauren and Victoria; and one greatgrandchild, Frances Kennedy. She is also mourned by one surviving sister, Mary ( Peter Stobbe) and numerous nieces and nephews. Born in the Ukraine on March 2, 1918, as the fourth of seven children of Johann and Elizabeth Neufeld, Olga’s early childhood coincided with the aftermath of the Bolshevik revolution. Amidst the turmoil of the absorption of Ukraine into the Soviet Republic, her parents elected to immigrate to Canada. In 1924, at the age of six, Olga found herself on a long sea voyage and a longer rail voyage to the Canadian prairies. The Neufeld family finally settled near Meadows, Manitoba, where they lived for almost 15 years. At the end of the depression, the Neufeld family moved to North Kildonan where she met William Dueck. Married on August 3, 1941, the first years of marriage were spent teaching in Arborg, while the latter years of the Second World War were spent performing alternative service in Oxford House. With three young children and a fourth to come, Olga and Bill settled into post- war life in North Kildonan. Olga was an accomplished seamstress and worked for many years in the drapery department of The Bay. Her lifestyle included organizing the childrens’ activities, serving in the church, family time at the cottage at Camp Arnes, picking fruit and vegetables for canning, needlework, quilting and sewing. She was also an avid swimmer and taught swimming at the East Kildonan YMCA and in the cold waters of Lake Winnipeg at Camp Arnes. Golfing and bowling were also activities in which she excelled. In 1984 Olga and Bill moved into retirement mode, spending winters in Florida and Texas and traveling to Europe and the Far East. By their 50th wedding anniversary in 1991, Olga had become an exemplar of the Canadian dream, progressing from a child on an immigrant ship to a cruise- shipping North Kildonan matron. Olga and Bill lived in a progression of selfbuilt homes, each more beautiful than the previous, finally settling on the east bank of the Red River on Kildonan Drive and later in a condo overlooking the river. After 65 years of marriage, Olga was no longer able to care for Bill at home, but was still able to drive herself to visit him in Donwood Manor. Olga was diagnosed with blood cancer in 1999. Despite a short prognosis, she remained in her home before moving into Donwood Manor in April of 2007. The strong themes in Olga’s life were church and family. Olga and Bill were members of North Kildonan Mennonite Brethren church. As the church grew, they became involved with the formation of the McIvor Avenue Mennonite Brethren church as charter members. A deeply religious woman, Olga provided her children with a thorough grounding in the Mennonite faith. The family would like to thank the staff of Donwood Personal Care Home, Dr. R. Martens, and the staff at the Oncology Department of Concordia Hospital for their kind and compassionate care. If friends so desire, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba, Camp Arnes or the Mennonite Central Committee. There will be a viewing Thursday evening, 7: 00 to 8: 00 p. m. at Friends Funeral Service, 2146 Main Street, Winnipeg. Interment will occur at Glen Eden Memorial Gardens and Cemetery, 4477 Main St., 10: 00 a. m., Friday, October 26. There will be a memorial service at McIvor Avenue Mennonite Brethren Church, 200 McIvor Ave., at 11: 00 a. m. FRIENDS FUNERAL SERVICE 2146 Main Street 339- 5555 PAUL L. GOYETTE C. A.

TEST TEST WILLIAM JOHN ( JACK) HISLOP With deep sorrow the family announces the passing of their father, grandfather and dear friend Jack, on October 22, 2007 at the St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg. Jack is survived by his children Markham ( Jo Ann) of Calgary, Dave ( Roxanne) of Winnipeg and Tracy ( Kevin Lee) of Deslisle, SK, his first wife Marion of Saskatoon, his sister Agnes of Red Deer and sister Jean of Calgary also his grandchildren who he loved and talked dearly of at great lengths Brandi, Jude, Vanessa, Marlee and Lauren. Jack was born in Anerley, Sask. November 10, 1924. The Depression years forced them to move north to the Meath Park area, where growing up on the family homestead and working with his father, Bill, who was a blacksmith and farmer, Jack showed an aptitude for all things mechanical. He turned his love of mechanics into his career as an automotive technician, working for a variety of automobile dealerships in the Prince Albert area. In the early 1950’ s he met and married Marion Stewart and together they owned and operated their own service station. In 1964 the family moved to Thompson, where Jack soon gained employment with Manitoba Hydro. In 1971 they moved north to Gillam, where Jack became the maintenance supervisor for the Kettle Rapids and Kelsey Generating Stations. He continued in this position until his retirement from Hydro in 1985. At this time he moved to Winnipeg, however he never really retired as in his spare time he drove courier five days a week and because of his love of cars, the other two days were spent working in a couple of local garages. Jack always enjoyed sports especially watching his children and grandchildren play hockey, baseball, curling, soccer, etc. and he was particularly proud of his hockey game in which he played with his two sons at the grand age of 53. In 1992 Jack married Joan Smith and he finally learned to relax and settled in Winnipeg. Jack and Joan loved to spend summers at their trailer along the Winnipeg River in Pinawa. After Joan’s passing in 2004 Jack made Pinawa his permanent home, where he made many friends, who all loved his sense of humor and easy going nature. Jack will be greatly missed by his family and numerous friends. Special thanks to the Staff at the Pinawa Hospital and St. Boniface Hospital who worked so diligently and compassionately with Grampa to make him comfortable during his times of need. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2007 at 11: 00 a. m. from the Pinawa Community Centre, Vanier Avenue, Pinawa, Manitoba with Rev. Ken Anstie officiating.

Ainslie overcame many obstacles in her life. She surpassed all the odds and reached many milestones in her life. She leaves behind her courage, strength and determination for those who loved her most. She was a true fighter. She loved sitting at the window watching people and cars going by, anything that involved her moving, bouncing or swinging around, her bath time, music and anything that lit up or flashed. She especially loved just being outside and so many other things. . She loved to throw her toys down and watch while we picked them up with her cheesy mischievous smile. Her smile could light up any room. She adored playing and watching her big brother Owen and always had a huge smile when she saw him or heard his voice. She enjoyed her moments with her " Buddy or # 2" as well as many other special moments shared with family. Ainslie also enjoyed her visits with Diane. Her favorite nursery songs were " Itsy bitsy spider", " Twinkle twinkle little star", and " Head and shoulders". She always had a huge smile on her face before the first words of the song were even sung ... she just knew what was coming. A heartfelt thank you to Dr. McLeod, Dr. Harlos, Simone and all the staff at Children's Hospital and particularly the staff on CH4. You were all instrumental in Ainslie's care and she was always well taken care of. We would also like to thank anyone else who has touched Ainslie's life.
