KIRK: With heavy hearts the family of Mary "Myra" Campbell Kirk (nee Harrold) announces her passing on Friday, September 18, 2009 at Fairview Home, Brandon, Manitoba, after a lengthy and courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease. She is survived by her devoted and loving husband Scotty Kirk, daughter Yvette (Mike McEwan) of Shilo, son Jeff (Faith) of Coldwater, Ontario, grandchildren Braedon (Missy) and Logan, Kristyna and Jeffrey, as well as her sister Jacqueline Harrold of Stonehaven, Scotland and extended family members. Myra was predeceased by her parents John and Jean Harrold, and brothers Jim and Bruce, all of Scotland. Myra was born May 8, 1937 in Glasgow, Scotland where she resided until her marriage to Scotty in January, 1957 when they were posted to Grostenquin, France with the Royal Canadian Air Force. She gave birth there to Yvette in 1958, herFrench "souvenir". After France, they enjoyed military postings to Langar, England, Winnipeg, Manitoba - her first Canadian home where son Jeff was born in 1963; Edmonton, Alberta, Rivers, Manitoba, Lahr, Germany; and finally settling in Shilo, Manitoba on Scotty's retirement from the Canadian Forces in 1980. A posting to Germany in 1971 allowed Myra the first opportunity to return to Scotland since leaving in 1960, as well as for her children to meet many of their relatives for the first time. During her time in Germany, Myra and Scotty travelled extensively as well as being involved with the international curling community, bonspieling throughout Europe. They also enjoyed camping and put many kilometers on their Mercedes and Sprite camper. While in Germany Myra worked at the Canadian military hospital as a laboratory technician. It was in Shilo that Myra put down roots and became involved in the Shilo community, in particular with the operation of the Shilo Ceramic Club for many years. Her handcrafted gifts were always appreciated by friends and family and still adorn many homes. She was also involved with the Protestant Chapel Ladies' Guild and regularly attended Sunday services at St. Barbara's Chapel, renewing her marriage vows there with Scotty on their 40th wedding anniversary. Myra made many close friends during her years in Shilo and will be sadly missed by all, especially her dear friend Annie McCulloch with whom she got up to much mischief. Myra's long time passion was her membership with the Eastern Star, which began as a young woman in Glasgow. She affiliated in Hope Chapter No. 6, Karlsruhe, Germany on June 6, 1972 and served as Esther Star Point (1972-73); Worthy Matron (1973-74); and Martha Star Point in 1975. She demitted from Hope Chapter No. 6 on February 1, 1977 after returning to Canada. She affiliated with Queen Esther Chapter in Rivers and retained that affiliation until transfer to Queen Mary OES in Brandon. Her travels with the "Star Ladies" took her many places, the highlight being a trip to Atlanta, Georgia. It was with sadness that Myra had to give up her Star work when her memory began to fail. Myra was diagnosed with dementia in her early 60's and resided at home under Scotty's care until September, 2004 when she moved to Fairview Home. While residing on the 5th floor she received excellent care from the compassionate staff until her time of passing. Her family thanks her caregivers for their special care and support to both Myra and her family. A special thanks to all the "Star Ladies" and other friends who brightened Myra's life with their visits. Her son Jeff and daughter-in-law Faith visited in July and her sister Jacqueline visited just weeks before her passing. A celebration of Myra's life will be held on Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 1:30 pm at St. Barbara's Chapel, Canadian Forces Base, Shilo, Manitoba. Rev. David Wilson will officiate. Flowers are gratefully declined but donations are appreciated in Myra's memory to the Alzheimer's Society of Manitoba, 1-613 10th Street, Brandon, Manitoba R7A 4G6, or Fairview Home, 5th Floor, 1351 - 13th Street, Brandon, Manitoba R7A 4S6.

LAWRENCE: It is with sadness that the family of Jack Bentley Lawrence announces his passing on September 4, 2009, in the Brandon Regional Health Center, with Dennis and Patricia by his side. Jack was born January 15, 1918, the second child of Charles and May (Bentley) Lawrence, on the family farm at Swaffum in the Rural Municipality of Cameron. He was predeceased by his parents, his brothers, Elwood and Wes, and his sisters, Leita (Ferguson) and Mary (Booley), as well as his wife, Louise (Lovatt), and is survived by his children, Dennis and Lynn (Egbert), and Patricia and Larry (Exner), as well as seven grand-children, Abbie, Erin, Judith, and Erika (Lawrence), and Christopher, Taylor, and Madison (Exner), and one great-grandson, Andrew (Lawrence), and many nieces and nephews. In 1928, Jack and his family moved to the Hebron district where they purchased the Kerslake farm. He attended school at Hebron, finishing to the end of Grade 9. Jack worked on his family farm, as well as with other farmers in the area, before going to Sudbury with a group of friends to work in the mines for a short time. In 1941, in Vancouver, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and, following training in Alberta and Ontario, served as an airplane mechanic in England between 1943 and 1945. He was honourably discharged in 1946. Soon after, he purchased his own farm in the Hayfield district of Oakland Municipality where he farmed until selling the farm late in 1973. He married Louise Mary Lovatt in October 1951, and she became a vital partner in his life and the farm. They expanded their family to include Dennis Keith and Patricia Arlene. Jack was active in the community, curling in Carroll, serving in the United Church in Carroll, and participating in the local school board. He enjoyed playing cards with neighbours and spending time with his family on both the Lawrence and Lovatt sides of the family. In 1973, Jack sold the farm and he and Louise moved to Brandon. He continued to work in Brandon, helping to construct a number of houses as well as setting up farm machinery for one of the Brandon dealers. Later, they moved to a home he constructed in Souris and lived there until 1982 when they decided to retire to Kelowna, BC. They lived there until they planned to return to Brandon in July, 1994. Sadly, his beloved Louise passed away early in June, 1994, days before this move, so Jack returned to Brandon alone and lived in Brandon, with a brief period in Souris, keeping his own home until checking himself into the hospital on August 15, 2009, for only his second hospital stay in his over 91 1Ž2 years. Funeral services for Jack were conducted by his son, Dennis, and attended by many family members and friends at Kowalchuck’s Funeral Home, Souris, Manitoba on September 9, which would have been the 92nd birthday of his wife, Louise. Pallbearers included his son-in-law Larry Exner, grandson Christopher Exner, and nephews Joel Lovatt, Charles Lovatt, Dan Lovatt, and Charles Hutton. Burial was in the Souris and Glenwood Cemetery and included a service by an honour guard from the Souris Legion and the honouring of him by his grandchildren as they placed roses on his casket.
