HAYDEN: Doris Anne Hayden (Murray) passed away peacefully at Valleyview Care Centre on Friday, December 7, 2018 at the age of 97 years. Doris will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by her children Murray, Bonny (Neil) and Glen (Judy) and daughter-in-law Terry; grandchildren Jamie (Julie), Alix, (Devin) Craig, Dan, Alison (Nick), Morgan (Chris), Tanner and Shelby (Scott); great-grandchildren Connor, Elisabeth, Jack, Bodhi, Teagan and Josie; her sister Betty McSorley, sisters-in-law Reta and Renee Murray and Joy (Ken) Babb and many wonderful nieces, nephews and cousins. Doris was predeceased by her husband John, sons Lynn and Brian and her brothers Donald, Bobby, Keith, Glen and Ivan. Mom was born on the family farm in the Lyleton area and attended school at Lyleton and Melita. After graduating from normal school she taught in various small communities in southern Manitoba. Dad’s job as a CPR station agent took them to towns and villages in Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan and five children kept Mom busy at home for a number of years before resuming her career. Dode loved to laugh, to joke, golf, curl, sing, play cards, watch sports and spend as much time with her family as possible. Mom and Dad had many great years at their cabin at Clear Lake that they shared so generously with family and their lifelong friends. We will forever miss the bright light and the BOSS that was our Dode. We hope and pray she has been reunited with her loves, has no more confusion and fear, no more pain and discomfort. The family would like to extend their thanks and deepest gratitude to the staff at Victoria Landing and to the Valleyview Care Centre for their exceptional and compassionate care, and for the kindness, good humour , dignity and love she enjoyed. They were truly wonderful and such credit to their professions. A service will take place with interment at the Lyleton Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to the Lyleton United Church Memorial Fund, c/o Penny Clark, Box 43, Lyleton, MB, R0M 1G0.

HEAMAN: Allan Wesley Heaman was the first born child to Wes and Ellen Heaman. He was born June 16, 1936 in Virden, Manitoba and was soon blessed with a baby sister Shirley (Nolan) a few years later. He attended Joslin School in the R.M. of Harmsworth and completed Grade 8 there. He took 2 years off of school to help his father farm and then returned to Virden Collegiate to complete his high school diploma. After high school Allan enrolled in the diploma agriculture program at Brandon University where he attended for one year. He then completed the second year of the program at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. During his youth Allan was a member a calf club and took great pride in showing his calf at the local fair. As he got older Allan enjoyed activities such as curling, bowling and square dancing. He farmed with his father until he married Joyce on October 16, 1965. At that time Wes and Ellen retired to Virden and Allan and Joyce continued to run the family farm. In June of 1968 Allan and Joyce welcomed their first child Valerie followed by Ross in November of 1970. One of Allan’s great passions was farming. He farmed almost all of his life and took great pride in tending his crops and raising his livestock. He farmed up until 2002 when Allan and Joyce sold the family farm and retired to Virden. Allan was very handy and a real Mr. Fix-it and he spent many hours tinkering in his shop. He could sketch something on a piece of paper and then go build it in his workshop. He was always thinking of ways to make something better or improve upon a tool or to devise a gadget to make life around the house or farm easier. He did much of his own plumbing, carpentry and wiring around the farm and the house. Allan spent many hours remodeling the old farm house. However once Joyce “re-discovered” square dancing it is interesting to note that it took him seven years to finish renovating the bathroom. Throughout the years Allan and Joyce belonged to several dance clubs in Western Manitoba including Virden Square Dance, Virden Round-a-bouts, Oak Lake Toe-Tappers, Satellite Squares and Extenders. Allan and Joyce were on the executive boards of several dance clubs for many years. During their years of dancing they visited many clubs across the country and attended several National and International dance festivals. Over the years Allan also held various board and committee positions with several organizations including the Virden United Grain Growers and the Valleyview Co-op. He was also a member of the Wallace United Church and later St Paul’s United Church in Virden. While a member of Wallace United Church he served as a steward, elder and trustee. When Allan and Joyce moved to Virden they spent most of their time working in their yard. Whether by design or chance they had a large lot in town and Allan continued his connection with the land by spending many hours maintaining the yard, landscaping, mowing grass or cutting trees and brush. While living in Virden he also volunteered many hours working at the garden for Communities in Bloom and the tourist booth. Allan also belonged to the Virden Lions Club and was honored with their Melvin Jones Fellow Award. He enjoyed the fellowship and camaraderie of the club and developed many friendships there. He could be found working on many of their projects in the community and enjoyed participating in them all except for perhaps the weekly Bingo night which was not one of his favorite duties. During their retirement years Allan and Joyce enjoyed a few trips throughout Canada including visits to Ontario, Quebec, PEI, Newfoundland/Labrador. They also traveled to Alaska and Colorado in the United States. After having health problems in 2014-15 Allan and Joyce moved to the Seine River Retirement Residence in Winnipeg. Allan was delighted to be closer to and spend more time with granddaughters Emma (born 2008) and Alexis (born 2011). In July of this year Allan started having heart problems. He spent several weeks at St. Boniface Hospital before being transferred to Misericordia Health Center. His journey ended when he passed away from complications from congestive heart failure on December 4, 2018. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff that provided care for Allan during his stays on 4B at St. Boniface and 6th floor at Misericordia. Allan was a humble, kind and gentle soul and leaves to cherish his memory his wife Joyce, children Valerie and Ross (Michelle), granddaughters Emma and Alexis, his sister Shirley (Barry), nieces Lori (Ron) and Colleen (Wayne) and nephews Dalwyn and Lyle. He was predeceased by his parents Wes and Ellen Heaman. The funeral service will be held at St. Paul’s United Church in Virden on Monday, December 17, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba in memory of Allan.
FATHERWho worked so hard and saved so longFor what we have today; and anytime would sacrifice,His chance to rest or play.Who always saw his children have, the things he did without;And gave so much, unselfishly for what love’s about.Who sought no honours, no rewards, for all that he had done;Except to raise a family, the very finest one.Though we cannot evaluate our Dad, his love, his worth,To us he’ll always be “Just Dad”.

THOMPSON: With love and sadness in our hearts the family of Sabina Thompson (Sabina Krystyna Krasicki) announce her peaceful passing on November 30, 2018 at Dauphin, Manitoba. Left to cherish her memory are husband Gregory, children Stephen and Sarah, brother Tadeusz "Ted" (Nancy), sister Caroline (Martin), mother-in-law Evelyn, sisters and brothers in-law: Heather Agnew and Malcolm Strang, Lois and Robert Wedgewood, David and Irene Thompson, Dwight and Louanne Thompson, and Joanne and Dave McMillan. Sabina is also survived by 18 nieces and nephews and 17 great nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Frank and Cecylia Krasicki, sister Barbara "Blanche" and father-in-law Stephen Thompson. Sabina spent her formative years as a proud “Northender” in Brandon, Manitoba. Greg and Sabina's union began during their high school years at Brandon Collegiate Institute. She described being attracted to Greg by his sense of humour, a quality which remained a strong theme throughout their lives together. Their relationship flourished during their years at Assiniboine Community College as they began on their professional career paths. Family and faith were always important in Sabina's life. Her love of family grew following their marriage in August of 1976, marking Sabina's official entry into the Thompson clan. Sabina and Greg's careers led them to Dauphin in 1981 where the next chapter in their life began. Parenthood was soon to follow with the arrival of Stephen in 1983 and Sarah in 1986. Motherhood (the 2nd oldest profession) was a role that Sabina embraced. Sabina's love for her children is strong and enduring. Strong and enduring throughout her life also was Sabina's faith. Her beliefs and the tenets of her church provided guidance, stability and comfort as she faced the joys and the trials that were part of her life. Sabina developed her strong work ethic at a young age she was especially proud of her time at Brandon's famed Prince Eddy Hotel. She was a consummate professional throughout her 35 year career with the Dauphin General Hospital as an executive assistant. Sabina also contributed to her community through her volunteer activities within her church teaching Sunday School and singing with three choirs. Sabina's quiet nature provided her the ability to see the small but important things in life, viewed through a comic lens. She used that knowledge to create personalized unique and thoughtful gifts for others. This creative nature was revealed in a multitude of avenues be it Christmas letters, skit choreography, personalized song and dance routines, and her popular line of “el Sucko” gifts. Sabina was a strong woman having battled cancer twice. She was victorious on the first round nearly thirty years ago. Her last stand against this invisible foe was fought with grace, strength and dignity. She continued to find joy through her family and music. Nature provided her with comfort be it watching the birds in her trees, walking on the beach at Ochre, or swimming with the sharks in Hawaii. Her beloved pets were a source of comfort and strength for her to the very end. Donations in Sabina's memory may be made to a Dauphin Hospital Foundation (dghf.ca) or Cancer Care Manitoba. A celebration of Sabina's life was held Thursday, December 6th at St. Viator's Roman Catholic Church in Dauphin, Manitoba with Fr. John Legitimas officiating. A family burial will be held in the summer of 2019 at the Beaver Creek Cemetery, MacGregor, Manitoba.
