MISANCHUK: Edward Paul, March 30, 1924 - January 12, 2014. It is with sadness that we announce the passing of husband, father and grandfather, at the Brandon General Hospital. Edward was born in1924 to John and Caroline Misanchuk in the Jackfish/Ozerna area, the youngest of three children. He attended elementary school in Jackfish and completed high school in Erickson and Minnedosa. Edward began teaching at the age of 18, shortly after completing his teacher's training in Winnipeg. He received his Bachelor of Arts Degree at Brandon University later in life. Edward started teaching in one room rural schools in Ravensworth, Montcalm, Grandview, and Rackham. He later taught school in Sandy Lake, Ethelbert and Brandon. His teaching profession spanned 38 years before Edward retired in 1983. In 1949 Edward met Ella Lesiuk at an Ozerna community dance and shortly after were married. Edward and Ella had a family of four, twin boys Bruce and Bryan and two girls Gloria and Cynthia. In 1950 they purchased a farm directly north of Edward's parents in Sandy Lake. The farm was bordered by two lakes and because of interest by campers, soon developed into a summer resort, Ed-venture Bay Campgrounds. Sandy Lake remained the focus on weekends and summer school vacations and well beyond school retirement, keeping Edward, Ella and family busy to this day. Edward was predeceased by his wife Ella, parents, John and Carrie Misanchuk, and his brother Peter Misanchuk. Edward is survived by his sister, Zenova Stephanyshyn, his children Bruce (Pamela) Misanchuk Airdrie AB, Bryan Misanchuk of ON, Gloria (Francois) Carrard of Brandon MB and Cynthia (Richard Hodgson) of Airdrie AB; and six grandchildren, Mike and Jon Misanchuk, Kara and Sigourney Burrell, Alexandra and Harrison Hodgson and many nieces and nephews.

NELSON: Floyd Oden passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at his residence in Fairview Home at the age of 88 years. He was the loving husband of the late Louise Nelson and beloved father of Tannis, Renald and Eric. Floyd, our Dad, was born in Crosby, N.D. to Sigfred and Lena Nelson on March 31, 1925. His Canadian parents moved the family back to Canada and farmed near Outram, SK when Dad was six months old. Drought conditions during the Great Depression caused the family to move to the Lac Vert, SK area and later to Flin Flon, MB. Dad was employed by Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting until he joined the Royal Canadian Navy during WWII at age 17. He served two years as Signalman (T.O.) aboard Corvette HMCS North Bay (K339) doing North Atlantic convoy duty and on several other ships after the War. Upon his discharge in 1946, Dad moved to Brandon, MB where his family settled. After completing an Agriculture Diploma at the University of Manitoba, Dad worked on a farm near Prince Albert, SK, and then at the Experimental Farm in Brandon. He was employed at Brandon Mental Hospital as a dining room attendant; Eldorado Mining and Refinery at Great Bear Lake, NWT as a warehouseman; and CNR Express in Edmonton, AB as a copywriter before joining the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1952. Dad served three years, two of them in Germany, as an air radar technician. Upon discharge, he attended Manitoba Technical College and returned to Brandon as a TV technician. He joined Federal Electric in 1957 and, after training in Illinois, was flown to the DEW Line site at Cape Perry, NWT. Dad spent four contracts at various areas of the Arctic coastline before returning to Brandon in 1962. While on leave from the DEW Line, Dad met Mom who worked with his sister, Ruby. Our parents married after a short four month courtship on June 16, 1962 and Dad secured a job as a telephone technician with Manitoba Telephone System (MTS) in Brandon that fall. He was a devoted husband and loving father to Tannis, born in 1964; Renald, born in 1966; and Eric, born in 1968. We have many fond childhood memories of Dad - our annual summer camping trips, swimming, flying kites, riding bikes, and playing board games, catch and hockey with Flash Floyd. As our family grew, our parents hosted family gatherings with Mom cooking up a storm and Dad, her trusty sidekick, helping with cleanup. Dad was an avid photographer, and he was never without at least one camera over his shoulder and a light meter in hand at all family occasions. He enjoyed being active, cycling to work and jogging regularly - he finished the Manitoba Marathon while in his 50s at the top of his age category. Dad had a lifelong love of music and played guitar, violin, accordion, piano and harmonica by ear. He was on council at Redeemer Lutheran Church and an active life member at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 247. After his retirement from MTS, Dad and Mom spent time travelling to Victoria, BC and to wherever their boys lived across Canada. Dad could also be found in the yard tending to the flower and vegetable gardens with Mom and puttering around his well-organized garage. After a life altering stroke in 2010 and Moms passing in 2011, Dad moved to Victoria Landing and then to Fairview Home in 2012. He was a gentle man with a wonderful dimply grin and a strong handshake. Dad will be remembered with love and missed terribly. He is survived by his daughter, Tannis (George) in Brandon, MB; sons Renald (Diane) in Trenton, ON and Eric (Karen) in Calgary, AB; and seven grandchildren: Charlean (fiancé, Corey), Chay, Brooklynn and Tanner Nelson in Calgary, AB; and Emilie, Daniel and Erin Nelson in Trenton, ON. He is also survived by his sister, Ruby Nelson in Edmonton, AB; brother, Don (Isla) Nelson in Camrose, AB; sister-in-law Ruth (Morris) Pickering in Winnipeg, MB and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Louise; infant son, David; parents Sigfred and Lena; and sister, Dora Law. A come and go gathering to celebrate Dads life will be held on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the George Brockie Fellowship Centre at Brockie Donovan, 332 - 8th Street, Brandon. Cremation has taken place and a private graveside service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Dads memory may be made to Prostate Cancer Canada - Western Region, 71 Rocky Vista Terr NW, Calgary, AB, T3G 5G6.

VALLANCE: It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Joyce Margaret Rosalind Peggy Vallance. Born in Napinka, Manitoba on October 23, 1928, Peggy grew up in Napinka and received her education at Napinka school. She was a tomboy and loved sports of all kinds which she often preferred to her school studies. In her late teens, Peggy moved to Brandon where she started her working life. She worked various places, among them Yaegers Furs and the Brandon General Hospital. It was during this time that she met and married the love of her life Richard Dick Vallance and started a family. They moved to Ottawa, Ontario in the late 1950s so Dick could take a job on the Canadian National Railway. Ottawa became their home for the next 18 years. While in Ottawa Peggy made many new friends and enjoyed an active social life, especially at the local curling club. Although she stayed busy raising her young family, working fulltime at a seed store and of course curling, she missed the prairie life and longed to return to her Manitoba. Needless to say she was very happy when they moved back to Brandon in 1979. Once back in Brandon, Peggy was reinstated as a Legion member at Branch No. 3 in 1980. She served on many committees and was in charge of the Ways and Means for four years. In 1984, she received the Certificate of Merit for all her hard work. Peggy also worked for the Shriners Club because she said she loved to hear the bagpipes when they practiced. Mostly, it was because she loved working for the people and the Shriners, many of whom became dear friends. Most importantly, Peggy wanted to repay the Shriners in a small way with gratitude for the wonderful care Carol received as a child at the Shriners Hospital for Sick Children in Montreal. Peggy also worked hard at other things such as knitting, cooking and sewing. She was an excellent seamstress and turned up many a hem, as well as making all kinds of clothing for people from pants to bridal gowns. After retiring from the working world, she took up the sport that became her passion, golfing. She loved the Glen Lea Golf Club and was there every chance she could find. Peggy loved children, admired and respected her friends, both old and new, and mostly she loved her family. She loved her home and taking care of her flowers and her yard. Peggy is survived by her daughter Patricia Rawlinson, son Richard Vallance (Lorrie), granddaughter Jennifer Vallance and son-in-law Neil Cowe. Peggy was predeceased by her parents, husband Richard Dick Vallance, daughter Carol Cowe, son Ricky in infancy, and son-in-law William Rawlinson. She will be missed by so many friends and loved ones. A Celebration of Peggys Life will take place at Memories Chapel, 330 18th Street North on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. Rev. Fr. Chad McCharles will officiate. Interment will follow at the Brandon Cemetery. If friends so desire, donations in memory of Peggy may be made to the Brandon Shrine Club, 1110 McTavish Avenue East, Brandon, Manitoba R7A 7B8.
