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
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
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,
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.

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,
She is also mourned by one surviving sister,
Mary ( Peter Stobbe) and numerous nieces and
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
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
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

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
Funeral services will be held on Saturday,

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
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

his prized tomatoes. He also had a love for
aquarium fish and bird- watching; he always had
a pair of binoculars handy at home should he
spot an interesting bird in his back yard. He
loved football and hockey and rarely missed
watching a game on T. V. Dad was always kind
and generous to his children and grandchildren.
Our sincere thanks to Boris and Jean Kohut,
Dad's neighbours of 41 years, whose kindness,
