At 15 she worked at the Adam’s Chiclet Factory and later at the Avro Arrow plant, buffing the engine blades on the new Arrow jets. In 1952 Shirley married Howard Phair. Their marriage of 56 years brought her so much joy. She and Howard, along with Howard’s brother Richard, owned and operated a thriving store in Pierson, Manitoba.

Shirley loved to bake. Every Christmas, for many, many years, she made up parcels of baking to give to those who may be lonely and to those she wished to say Thank-you. After a short, but courageous battle with cancer, Shirley passed away peacefully on February 18, 2009, at Souris Hospital, her loving family by her side.

McRAE:Jeffrey Graham McRae, 43, earned his angel wings on February 13, 2009, after a very courageous 5 1/2 year battle with a brain tumour. Jeff was born April 8, 1965 in Brandon and grew up on the family farm in the South Brandon District. He attended Meadows, Earl Oxford, and graduated from Crocus Plain Regional Secondary School in 1983. After graduation Jeff moved to Russell, and worked for M & J Farms for 1 year. He then moved back home and helpedhis dad and brother on their own farm. Jeff's love was farming and cattle shows. He didn't like the PR work but loved the preparations. Jeff did lots of custom fitting for many people especially Bar 5 Stock Farms every spring and fall. There are many wonderful stories and memories of Jeff's cattle show days. In January 1991, Jeff met the Love of his Life, Linda Hope, and they were married on October 23, 1993 and lived on their own farm at SE 31-8-19 in the RM of Oakland. Linda taught Jeff to golf and they enjoyed taking western dance lessons together. Jeff never passed up the opportunity to two step or line dance. They also enjoyed playing broomball and curling together. Golfing and curling became Jeff's passions and he continued to play both until his health would not allow it this past fall. The 1st year of marriage also brought the 1st year of laying hens. Jeff loved his girls!! Because of them, Jeff became involved with the Egg Show at the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair. December 13, 1995 Jeff became a very proud first time dad with the birth of Tyson James. He was equally proud on February 27, 1998 when his 2nd son Eric Jeffrey was born. Jeff loved his boys immensely and he was very proud of all their accomplishments. When Jeff became ill in August 2003, it pained him dearly to know he may never see his boys grow up. He was a strong believer in promises so when his diagnoses did not look good, Jeff and Linda packed up the boys and went to Disney World in December 2003. He had promised the family they would go someday and he wanted to fulfill that promise. Over the next 5 1/2 years life was very different for Jeff. He was no longer able to farm and he had to sell the egg quota, but he always tried to stay positive. He was very pleased with his boys when they each joined the South Brandon Carroll 4H Beef Club. He himself had been a long time member of the same club. Jeff was also glad he was able to see the boys excel in every sport or endeavour they tried. He was able to be there and cheer them on. The past 10 months were difficult ones for Jeff, but he tried so hard to be positive and continue to do as much as he could for all of us. Good times were harder to come by, but everyone always knew when Jeff was having a good day because he would use his dry sense of humour. Jeff had many good friends and right to the end they were there for him. Even while in hospital, Jeff found enough strength to have a drink and joke with them. This meant the world to him. Jeff was predeceased by his nephew Christopher Bokkel (1994), mother-in-law Anne Hope (2003) and his father Allan McRae (2004). He will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Linda(nee Hope), sons Tyson and Eric, mother Margaret McRae, brother Blair (Lois), sister Janice (John) Bokkel, father-in -law Charles (Erna Honeyman) Hope, brother-in-law James (Karyn) Hope, nephews Brett McRae, Jonathan Bokkel, Jordan and Zachary Hope, and nieces Melissa McRae, Marja and Tonja Bokkel, and Madison Hope. Several aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends will also miss this wonderful man. The Ceremony to Celebrate Jeff's Life was held at Central United Church, on Wednesday, February 18, 2009, at 1:00 p.m. Rev. Shannon McCarthy officiated. Pallbearers were all very close friends of Jeff: Garth Jameson, Keith Jameson, Kelly Fardoe, Glenn Williamson, Earl McComb, and Craig Mowatt. Earl McComb shared some of the friends' special memories of Jeff with everyone, and Jeff's wife Linda shared her special memories too. A private family interment followed in the Rosewood Memorial Gardens. Donations in memory of Jeff may be made to The Education Trust Fund for Tyson and Eric, c/o Westoba Credit Union, 3300 Victoria Avenue, Brandon, Manitoba, R7B 0N2, or any Westoba Credit Union branch. Expressions of sympathy may be made at Arrangements were with Memories Chapel and Pre- Planning Centre, 727-0330.
We Love you Jeff
He is GoneYou can shed tears that he is gone,Or you can smile because he lived,You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.Your heart can be empty because you can't see himOr you can be full of the love that you shared,You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.You can remember him and only that he is goneOr you can cherish his memory and let it live on,You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes,love and go on.

FALLOON: Betty Falloon formerly of Foxwarren and recently of Sunnyside Manor in Birtle passed away peacefully on Feb. 11, 2009 at the age of 97. Betty was born on November 24, 1911, the eldest child of Frank and Lucy Gardham of Arrow River, Manitoba. One of her earliest memories is of a trip she took with her mother and sister Enid back to England at the age of two. After schooling Betty came to work in Foxwarren district where she met and later married Doug Falloon. They held their 50th Wedding Anniversary on December 21, 1986. In 1944 they purchased the farm at 35-17-28 in the R.M. of Ellice and lived there until they retired to Foxwarren in 1976. Betty and Doug were well-known sports fans and faithfully followed the local teams for many years. Visitors to Sunnyside would often remark that Betty would have the Oilers on TV, the Wheat Kings on the radio, and be phoning the Foxwarren Rink to see how the Falcons game was going. Baseball was another favorite as a spectator and curling was her favorite as a participant. She curled in the Provincial Golden Gals playoffs in 1989. As well as the Ladies Curling Club, Betty was a long-time member and treasurer of the Foxwarren Women’s Institute. She and Doug were both involved in the formation of the Foxwarren Leisure Centre and Betty spent many enjoyable hours taking part in the activities there. In 2003 Betty received a Volunteer Award for her years of service to both the Recreation Centre and the Leisure Centre. Betty was devoted to her family, the farm, and the community. She truly mourned the passing of the elevators, the school, the curling rink, the stores, and more recently the United Church which make up such a large part of life in a farming community. Betty was predeceased by her husband Doug in 1987, infant son Larry in 1937, daughter Shirley Beaton in 1988, parents Frank and Lucy, sisters Enid Orr and Ethel Johnson, and brother George Gardham, in-laws Con Orr, Doug Johnston, Georgina Gardham, Lois Falloon, and Lillian Falloon.

CHAPMAN: George Walter, beloved husband of the late Isabelle Chapman, passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2009. George was born on the farm in Daly Municipality on June 20, 1913 and we truly believe that those strong roots contributed immensely to his long life. Realizing that there were other opportunities than the farm, he ended up in the R.C.A.F. Twice he was summoned to go overseas – Europe and Japan – however, his superiors chose to keep him on Canadian soil. Following the war, he, Isabelle and the young family decided to make their home in Brandon. George chose to become an entrepreneur, running a TV/Radio repair shop and sporting goods store. He enjoyed nothing more than fishing, be it at Clear Lake or Lake William. George is lovingly remembered by his children, Sherrill (Phil), Judy (Peter) and Donald, eight grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, brother Albert and his family, and brother Raymond. A private family graveside service will be held at Rosewood Memorial Gardens at a later date.
