KALINOWICH: Jodi Louise Kalinowich 1980-2013. Jodi was born a leap-year baby in Carberry, Manitoba on February 29, 1980, to Margaret and Bill Kalinowich, the second of three children. She attended R.J. Waugh Elementary School and Carberry Collegiate, from where she graduated in 1998. After working for some time in the community, Jodi obtained a certificate in Office Administration from Assiniboine Community College. She went on to become a Comprehensive Health Care Aide, graduating from ACC in May of 2000. In August of 2000, she was stricken by Multiple Sclerosis. After months of hard work and determination, she was able to return to work as a Support Worker for Spirit Sands Support Services until 2007, when she was unable to continue. With support from her beloved friend Peter, Homecare, and her family, she was able to live at home until she left us on October 19, 2013. From an early age, Jodi enjoyed travelling. Many summers were spent with her family in the car, pulling their camper across the country. She especially enjoyed a trip to the Dominican Republic in 2005. Jodi enjoyed many other activities, particularly watching Peter work on cars and racing at mud bogs, having bonfires, and spending time with family – especially Sundays with her Mom and Dad. She had great perseverance and, until recently, drove her wheelchair back and forth to her parents’ house, to appointments, and up the ramps into the van, so she could go out shopping with her mom and sister, and to attend family events. She had a great sense of humour and looked forward to sarcastic and lively exchanges with whomever crossed her path. Jodi was very proud of Peter’s achievements and took interest in his work in the garage. His many friends always took time to visit with Jodi when they stopped by. Jodi had a special relationship with Peter’s mom, Mary, and enjoyed the time that they spent together. The other most important events in Jodi’s life were the marriage of her sister Kristen to Tyson, whom she thought of as a brother, and the births of her niece Nora and nephew Nolan. She always looked forward to seeing them, and they couldn’t wait to see her also. She was affectionately known to them as “Auntie Wheels”. They would sit on her lap in the wheelchair and immediately take over the controls. There was plenty of laughter and lots of hugs and kisses when Jodi was with the kids. She was as special to them as they were to her. Jodi was predeceased by grandparents Orma Oar, Steve and Anne Kalinowich, and Helene Oar. She is survived by her beloved friend Peter Enns, her parents Bill and Margaret, brother Trevor, sister Kristen (Tyson Fisher), niece Nora, nephew Nolan, Papa (George Oar), Granny (Mary Enns), niece Ava, special friends Al and Joan Merko, and of course Sophie, her pet cat. Also surviving Jodi are several Aunts and Uncles, many cousins, and their families. Flowers are gratefully declined. If so desired, donations may be made in memory of Jodi to either the MS Society or SMD (Society for Manitobans with Disabilities).

JOSS: It is with love and profound sadness that the family announces the passing of their mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Rose (Randall) Joss. Rose passed away peacefully on October 21, 2013 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. Rose was born on March 19, 1930 in Brandon, the youngest child (and only daughter) of Ellen (Cleverley) and Albert Randall. She was raised and, with the exception of three years, lived all her life in Brandon. Rose attended Alexandra Elementary School until the end of her Grade 6 year. Due to the untimely death of her mother, Rose assumed the housekeeping duties for the family and did not return to school. During her youth Rose excelled at swimming and diving, so much so that her older brother, Art, forbade her from going to the Kiwanis Pool when he was on duty as a lifeguard for fear that she would upstage him. She met Peter Gorzen of the Griswold district and they were wed on June 24, 1949. Five children were born into this marriage: Norm, Barb, twins Russ & Ron and Patty. While living in Alberta, Pete was killed in a train-car collision in April, 1956. With four children in tow and pregnant with her fifth, Rose was able to return to Brandon with the help of her brother Bill in order to be close to her family. Rose eventually went on to marry Leith (Lee) Joss whom she had known since childhood. Together they raised Rose’s children whom he considered to be his own in every way, even legally adopting them. Rose and Lee also fostered numerous children through the Children’s Aid Society even adopting three of their wards whom they fell in love with: Bruce, Donna and Robin. When all of her kids reached school age, Rose went to work to supplement the family income. She found employment first at Chrest’s Dry Cleaners and then as a nurse’s aide at the Cornwallis Nursing Home and Central Park Lodge. Rose and Lee shared 26 wonderful years together. Their lives were mainly centred around family. They were avid sports fans particularly for hockey and baseball. Another favourite pastime was playing either yahtzee or cards with close friends, especially canasta and hearts. Tragedy struck again in October, 1982 when Lee was killed by a drunk driver while working for Wally’s Taxi.Rose was renowned in the family for the many sweaters and baby outfits she knit – in fact she was working on an outfit for her newest great grandson at the time of her passing. She also loved to bake and at Christmas time her freezers were overflowing with goodies for family and friends. After Lee’s passing Rose became a diehard bingo player for many years as this was a social outing for her. In later years Rose enjoyed watching TV sitcoms and classic western movies. Anyone who knew Rose well knew that her grandchildren and great grandchildren meant the world to her. This was immediately evident upon entering her home as the living room walls were covered in their pictures. Despite some health and mobility issues during the latter years, Rose was thankful and proud of the fact that she had been able to remain in her own home until the time of her passing. This was in large part due to the devoted care by her son Russ and grandson Corey & his family.Rose was predeceased by: her parents Ellen & Bert Randall; first husband Peter Gorzen; second husband Lee (Jolly) Joss; brothers Ed (Ab), Art and Bill; adopted daughter Donna. She is survived by: daughters Barb & Patty; sons Norm (Violet), Ron and Russ; adopted children Robin & Bruce; 15 grandchildren; 8 great grandchildren. She will be sorely missed by her faithful and beloved animal companions: Tippy, Willow and Candy. The ceremony to celebrate Rose’s life was held on October 25, 2013 in the Brockie Donovan Chapel with Funeral Celebrant, Kim Lewarne officiating. Grandson Corey Joss, assisted by his children Addison & Carter, acted as the urn bearers. According to her wishes, Rose’s ashes were interred with her late husband Lee in the Veterans’ section of the Brandon Municipal Cemetery. If friends so desire, a donation can be made in memory of Rose to the Westman Dreams for Kids Foundation, #2-37-11th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 4J2.

Miss Me But Let Me GoAuthor: AnonymousWhen I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom-filled room. Why cry for a soul set free?Miss me a little-but not too long And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared Miss me--but let me go.

BOYLE: On October 6, 2013 we lovingly said goodbye to our father, grandfather and great- grandfather, John (Jack) Francis Boyle. Born April 30, 1924 in the Neepawa hospital to E.P. and Rose Mary (McHale) Boyle, he was the youngest of 6 children. Jack was predeceased in 2001 by his wife Berna (Hargreaves), wife of 52 years, and daughter Catherine six months later that same year. Also predeceasing him were his parents Edward Peter and Rose Mary, and all of his siblings - brothers Robert, Forrest (Bud) and Ken and sisters Irene and Winnifred. Jack received his early education at the Neepawa Central School and the Neepawa Collegiate. He then went on to St. Paul’s College and to the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg to complete his education. In 1943, he signed up with the Royal Canadian Air Force and trained as a navigator. In 1945, at the end of the Second World War, he returned to Neepawa to begin his life long work at the Neepawa Creamery, the family business started by his father. He was very proud of the family tradition of manufacturing quality butter and ice cream – its excellence recognized both provincially and nationally. He retired in 1993 after selling the business to Schwann’s Canada. In 1948, Jack married Berna Elizabeth Hargreaves, formerly of Kenton, Manitoba. They met as she was completing her nurse’s training in Neepawa. Together they raised a family of six children and saw each of them marry and raise their own children. Jack had priorities in his life -- his family, his faith, his business and his community. He was a fervent supporter of the quality of life in Neepawa and felt there was no better place on earth to live. Over the years he worked hard to give back to the town he loved. As well as being a faithful member of St. Dominic’s Church, he also served one term on the Town Council, two terms on the school board and took a lead hand role in establishing the first library in Neepawa. Dad also served on the executive of the Neepawa Golf and Country Club, the Neepawa Curling Club, and was a charter member of the Neepawa Junior Rifle Club. One of his most passionate pursuits was hunting – fostered by his dad and passed on to his sons. However, where one season ends another begins and he honed his curling abilities over a span of many winters and many bonspiels. He also enjoyed golf and spent many happy hours on courses in Neepawa, Sandy Lake, and occasionally in Palm Springs where mom and dad liked to visit in the winter. A few years ago Jack was presented with a memento from the Neepawa Golf and Country Club recognizing 60 years as a member. He was fortunate enough to still be “hitting the links” up until a few weeks before his passing. Left to mourn him are Terrence (Brenda), Dennis, Michael (Linda), Frances (Daniel), and Janet (Orv) as well as many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. A celebration of life was held at St. Dominic’s Roman Catholic Church on October 10th with Father Mark Filips officiating, followed by interment at the Riverside Cemetery.
