BYCZKOWSKI: It is with great sorrow that the family of Agnieszka (Agnes) Byczkowski announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother on September 21, 2013. Agnes was born on December 29th, 1930 in Czarniz, Poland. She was the daughter of Wladyslaw and Franciszka. Her first husband passed away in Poland. Later she came to Canada to marry Walter Byczkowski on March 19, 1988. Walter passed away in November, 2001. Mom resided in Canada for 23 years. In 2011, she returned to Poland to visit her children and grandchildren where she remained until her death. Agnes enjoyed many treasures in her lifetime including gardening and spending time with her circle of friends. Agnes had left Poland to marry our dad in Canada but she always made time to visit and call her children in Poland. Her family and friends were what she treasured most. Mom always had time for a visit and her smile was quite infectious. She also enjoyed sitting down and putting a puzzle together – there was no puzzle that was too much of a challenge for her. Predeceasing mom is her stepson Terry Byczkowski. Mourning her death are her stepchildren: Marilyn (Bob) Reid; Jim Byczkowski; her daughters Teresa (Ernie) Janzen; Tracy Bryant; and Patricia (Kelvin) Siemens; and her daughter-in- law, Carma Byczkowski; Agnes is also survived by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Also mourning our Mom’s death are her children in Poland: Boguslaw Osowski, Jozef Osowski, Halina Gierszelwska, Miroslaw Osowski, Jan Osowski and their respective families. A memorial service for Agnes Byczkowski will be held at St. Augustine’s Church, 327-4 Street, Brandon, MB on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. Celebrant will be Father Kevin Smith.

VICKERY: It is with profound sadness, we announce the passing of Gerald Gordon Vickery, born April 10, 1935 – Oct 8, 2013, after a great fight against cancer. The day he was diagnosed he told Brenda that he had, had worse news in 65 years of farming and he would fight it. Gerry was born and raised in Hamiota with the exception of a few years the family lived in Oak River. He spent most of his years on the farm three miles west of Hamiota, where he continued the tradition of grain farming and cattle farming. Gerry married Roberta Blackwell of Harding and they had two children Brenda and Ken. He leaves to mourn Roberta his wife of 54 years, son Ken (Lorraine), daughter Brenda (Dave), grandson Ryan (Kirstin), great grandson Ethan. Sister Nora Shier, brother Doug (Judy), brother-in-law Dick Hills and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Lois and Gordon, sister Evelyn Hills, sister and brother-in-law Sheila and Frank Thiede, brother-in-law Gerald Shier, two nephews Vince and Gordon Shier, sister-in-law Velda Vickery. He was also predeceased by his mother and father-in-law Robert and Jean Blackwell and sister-in-law Lillian Blackwell. Gerry enjoyed curling, even attending a few briers and a World Championship. He loved getting out to the coffee shop and being with the men. A great couple of days was when he was able to get away to Lake of the Prairie’s fishing or in November, when his son-in-law Dave came out to deer hunt with Gerry. Another favourite pastime was going to auction sales. We were never sure if it was the auction sale he was going to or the lemon pie and coffee! The ”birthday gang” gatherings in various locations with a nice supper and a game of cards were always special moments for Gerry. In the last couple months, Gerry enjoyed more frequent visits with his brother Doug and sister Nora; often just popping in to their homes for a conversation and cup of coffee. Gerry was a wonderful husband and father and a great provider. A graveside service was held for family and other relatives at the Hamiota Cemetery on Saturday, Oct 12 at 11:00am with Rev. Rachel Robinson officiating. A luncheon followed for all his friends to celebrate his life at the Hamiota Community Centre at 11:30am. Len and Ev Allan attended the register book. If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in Gerry’s memory to the Hamiota & District Sports Complex Memorial Fund, Box 100, Hamiota, MB, R0M 0T0 or the Hamiota District Health Centre, Hamiota, MB, R0M 0T0.
