RICKARD: Donald Murray, May 8, 1955 – August 21, 2020. It is with great sadness that the family of Donald Murray Rickard announces his passing at Boissevain Health Centre, with his wife Debbie and family at his side, on Friday, August 21, 2020. Donnie was born on Mother’s Day, May 8, 1955 in Deloraine, Manitoba, the oldest son of Arthur and Louise Rickard and brother to Beverley, Tommy, and Kenny. Since he was born on Mother’s Day, he only gave his mom Mother’s Day gifts when it fell on his birthday, those gifts usually were roses and the number of flowers she received would be his age that year. The last year Mother’s Day fell on his birthday he gave her 61 red roses. He is survived by his wife and soul-mate Debbie of 31 years, step daughter Linda (Ernie) Fidder and grandchildren Ashley (Evan) and Ernie, his mother Louise and siblings Bev (Chris Wells), Tom (Lucy), Ken (Kim) and foster brother Dean Janz, nieces and nephews Chuck (Kim), Sarah, Shawn, Ashley (Matt), Josh (Katlyn), Andrew (Quinn) and Justin, great nieces and nephews Maverick, Sadie, Rain, Penny, Jayce and Lane. Don was predeceased by his father Art and step son Tom Gallmeyer. Don was raised on the original homestead of his great grandparents, George and Annie Rickard. He started his education at Bayview School and graduated from Deloraine Collegiate. His first employment was processing honey at Merkley’s Apiaries, from there he worked for Drings in Boissevain and in 1974 he went to Fort McMurray, Alberta at the age of 19. He went to work for Gable Brothers Construction and worked their until 1990. During the first 20 years he was in Fort McMurray he continued to participate in the family farm, coming home in the spring to plant crops and in the fall to take them off. The last few years he spent quite a lot of time on the farm running equipment, with his last endeavour a cattle operation with his brother Ken. Donnie was a hard-working man and started Rickard Excavation a logging and construction company in 1990 with one dozer. Over time he built his business and employed a multitude of people including several young men from the Deloraine area and some as far away as Newfoundland. At any given time, he would have between 60 and 150 employees. On March 17, 1989 Donnie met Debbie, who would be the woman he would spend the rest of his life with. He fit right into Debbie’s family and soon became her best friend and a wonderful stepfather to Linda and Tom and eventually Grampy to Ashley and Ernie. He graciously took on the role of Grampy and made sure he was there for his grandchildren in many ways, attending most every birthday, holiday, sporting event and milestone throughout their lives. He was their confidante and teacher – helping Ashley purchase her first truck and showing her the way to garden. He spent a great deal of time with Ernie bringing him to Manitoba for a couple of summers teaching him about farming, cattle, and various equipment. He loved sledding and made several trips to BC with the Gable family. He loved to travel and went to France with his graduating class. Donnie and Debbie traveled with his parents including a trip to England, Scotland and Wales and to Alaska, Ontario and through the northern states. As a couple they traveled to Fort Meyers, Florida, Crawford Bay, BC, Helendale and San Diego, Calif. and Yuma, Az. with Ernie, Linda, Ashley and young Ernie. Donnie and Debbie walked 800 kms across Spain and traveled extensively in Canada and the U.S. They went on several motorcycle trips with friends. Also including a European river cruise and 3 Country Music cruises. Donnie was also a Nascar fan and went to multiple tracks to watch the races. Donnie was the best Mother’s Day gift you could be given and was a great son, brother, husband, grandfather and friend. He will be sadly missed by both family and numerous friends. He had a generous and selfless heart and would help anyone, always there when you needed to talk or share a story. When Donnie was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, he took the news the same way he lived his life “It is what it is” now let’s try and fix it. Although he did everything he could, including traditional and non-traditional treatments he lost his uphill battle after 2 years of fighting. Public viewing was held Wednesday August 26, 2020 at Smith Funeral Home followed by a private interment at Del-Win Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Donnie may be made to Boissevain Health Centre Palliative Care, Box 899, Boissevain, Manitoba, R0K 0E0.

CLEAVER: Evelyn Elizabeth passed away peacefully at Fairview Home on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at the age of 92 years. She is lovingly remembered by her daughter Cheryl (Raymond) Robson, son Keith (Kathy), grandchildren Jeff (Janique) Robson and Jodelle (Ryan) Semeniuk and great granddaughters Danica and Danelle Robson. Also surviving are her sister May Parkins, sister-in-law Jean Meadows and numerous nieces and nephews. Evelyn was predeceased by her husband Arthur, parents Cecil (Edith) Meadows, brothers Ward (Ethel) and Cecil Meadows, sister Marion (Bruce) Cleaver, brothers-in-law Francis Parkins, Robert (Margaret) Cleaver and Jim Cleaver, sister-in-law Mildred (Norman) Halls and father and mother-in-law Joseph (Mabel) Cleaver. Evelyn was born on January 24, 1928 in Brandon. She grew up on the family farm and attended school at Gourlay and Moore Park. Evelyn married Arthur “Art” Cleaver on October 20, 1948 and they farmed in the Moore Park area for 52 years. Besides crops, they had livestock and Mum often talked of milking the cows. Being a very hard worker, she was not afraid to help with whatever job needed done on the farm. Evelyn enjoyed freezing, making relishes and pickles from her vegetable garden, picking berries for canning, jams and jelly as well as making delicious bread, pies, cookies, and desserts. As a community minded lady, she was always willing to prepare food or help whenever needed for community events. She was a member of the Moore Park UCW as well as the Glanton North Group. Curling, community bonspiels, dancing, playing cards, games, bingo, and puzzles were favourite pastimes as many hours were spent with family and friends enjoying a game. Evelyn was very talented at sewing, knitting, crocheting and doing all crafts. Evelyn and Art were so happy to welcome their grandchildren to the family and for Evelyn, it was a time to knit sweaters, hats, mitts, blankets, etc. for them. She was a very generous person and enjoyed making socks for everyone at Christmas. She also donated many pairs of mitts, toques and scarves to the Christmas Cheer for several years. We will all treasure the special gifts that she made us and are so thankful that she always took the time to teach us her skills. Over the years Evelyn and Art took many trips to Victoria to visit family and shorter weekend trips to Mildred's. In 2000, they moved to an apartment in Brandon, still enjoying short trips, watching the blue jays and curling on tv, as well as coffee at Zeller's or the Towne Centre to meet and visit with friends. After Art's passing in 2008, Evelyn stayed in the apartment where she appreciated her time with her sister May and friends there. She still played bingo and usually had a puzzle going which everyone helped with. “Chicken Foot” Dominoes became a very popular game and we all remember our Mum, Grandma, Great Grandma at all family gatherings and have a game. Evelyn moved to Victoria Landing in July 2013 and then Fairview Personal Care Home in October 2017. Although her health continued to decline, she made new friends, enjoyed all activities at both places as well as spending holiday celebrations at Cheryl and Raymond's with the family. We are all so proud of Mum for her strength and determination in dealing with Dementia over the years and even though we will miss her, we are grateful that she can now rest in peace with Art at the Moore Park Cemetery. Due to Covid 19 Restrictions, a private family interment has taken place with Rev. Barbara Jardine officiating. Donations in memory of Evelyn may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba Unit 4B-457-9th Street, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 1K2.

TRAVIS: Shirley Jane Wright Travis, 92, passed away peacefully in her home in Aurora, CO on August 20, 2020. Shirley was born on March 23, 1928 in Summit, NJ to James Theodore Wright and Vauda Hoffman; raised by a paternal aunt and her husband (Alice and Harvey Spooner.) After graduating from Summit High School, she received an Associates of Business degree in Office Administration from Berkeley Secretarial School in East Orange, NJ and then a scholarship to Monticello College in Alton, IL where she graduated with an Associates of Arts degree in Journalism. She was married to Dean Hamilton Travis, Jr., a Marine, on August 26, 1950 in Summit, NJ until 1987. Over the course of many moves to Montana, New Jersey, North Dakota, and Idaho, they had five children, and while her primary focus was raising the best children possible, Shirley happily used her secretarial skills by being President of the Ladies’ Auxiliary of St. Anthony’s Community Hospital, the Chair of the Board of Directors for the Pocatello Regional Medical Center, and the Bookkeeper for the Holy Trinity Parish in Pocatello, ID. The family then ended up in Brandon, MB in 1965 where they made many lifetime friends, and where she was elected President of the Kinette Club (a charity organization.) It was back to Idaho (Pocatello) in 1972, where she worked as the manager of the Pocatello Golf and Country Club for two years, and then on to Salt Lake City, UT, where she was President Elect of the Newcomer’s Club and the Convention Packet Chairman for a Presbyterian National Conference. Boise, ID was next, and with her ever cheerful and optimistic personality, served as President of the Welcome Wagon Club of Boise for several years as well as being a Chairman for the Beaux Art Societe annual Christmas Festival. She also enjoyed being an Income Tax Processor for the Idaho State Tax Commission. She became especially close to her son’s in-laws and enjoyed taking care of her three grandchildren before and after school. In 2004 she moved to Aurora, CO to help her oldest daughter, a single mother, to raise her grandchild. The three of them had lots of adventures with Shirley not wanting to be left out of anything even remotely fun!! Constantly being teased by her children as being “overly dramatic”, she loved to exaggerate, with her favorite phrase when upset, being: “I won’t have it, (name). I just won’t have it!” She is survived by a younger brother, James Henry Wright, of Palatka, FL, a younger sister, Patty Wright Proto, of Somerdale, NJ, and half-sisters Dot Nelson of Franklin Park, NJ, and Norma Yetsko of Jamesburg, NJ. She is also survived by four of her five children, Candy Jane Travis Wright of Aurora, CO, Lauren Ann Travis McLean (husband, Neil) of Calgary, Alberta, Matt Hamilton Travis, Fall City, WA, and Clint Wright Travis (wife Darlene), of Eagle, ID. Her fifth and youngest child, Margo Sue Travis Greenman predeceased her in 2006. She was also very proud to say that she had eight grandchildren (Skye Benjamin, Travis and Bryce McLean, Miles and Meghan Travis, Sean Travis, Allison Dahl, and Ty Travis) and nine great-grandchildren. A “born mother” to all living things too fragile to protect themselves, she was a passionate animal lover, who would have gladly given up her life if it meant saving another living creature. Along with her own dogs, many an orphaned animal would make its way to her home. She could also be a “Mother Bear” though too... In the 50’s, before seatbelts, she used her arm to protect her kids from hitting the dashboard; she would rather have dislocated her arm rather than risk one of her children being injured. Her children never feared for bears while camping in Yellowstone either – any bear threatening them would have gotten beaten senseless with her cast iron pan! Her children will also remember her as a very accomplished chef who made UNBELIEVABLE casseroles by substituting any white ingredient for a white ingredient that happened to be missing... She was most famous though, for whipping together “vacation” sandwiches made of orange marmalade on hard stale bread on the tailgate of the family station wagon while desert sand was blowing on yet another layer! She loved a good laugh, and among her favorite activities were avid gardening, crafting, sewing, knitting, puzzling, reading, and decorating the house for holidays (especially for Christmas when every single nook and cranny was filled with Dickens villages or homemade decorations.) A graveside service and Celebration of Life will be held at a later time when family and friends will be able to all get together in Boise, ID. If so desired, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the New England Anti-Vivisection Society (neavs.org) or to the Animal Legal Defense Fund (aldf.org.) The following was always on her refrigerator, and as she always seemed to be the happiest while in her garden, it seems fitting to her children that this notice end with:
“The kiss of the sun for pardon, The song of the birds for mirth, One is nearer God’s heartin a garden Than anywhere else on earth.”
A kinder soul God did not know, and we are proud to be your children, Mom. Remembering, treasuring, and loving you always, Candy, Lauren, Matt and Clint
