She grew up with her brother Bob in Brandon, graduating from Harrison High School where she was active in many sports. She spent magical summers at Clear Lake in Riding Mountain National Park throughout her youth. She moved to the United States to attend the University of North Dakota, becoming a physical education teacher and coach upon receiving her bachelors degree. She lived the last 32 years in Marietta, Georgia where she built a strong network of friends and adopted family. While she only had one biological child, she was considered a second mom to many and had a great impact on the lives of dozens of young people. She was successful in her professional life as a sales manager in the staffing industry for many years. Jane was an avid reader, a lover of all sports, a devoted Auburn fan, and an amazing cook. She loved spending time near (and on) the water, and was a frequent adventurer with her two grandsons. Family was the greatest joy in Janes life. She was proceeded by her parents Robert and Beryl Hamilton; and brother, Bob Hamilton. She is survived by her daughter, Jana Steckler Kovac, son- in-law, John Kovac and two grandsons, Colin and Parker Kovac of Atlanta, Georgia; as well as three nephews, Blake, Joel, and Gareth Hamilton, and sister-in-law, Joy Hamilton of Brandon, Manitoba.

McCUTCHEON: James (Jim) Clarke McCutcheon died February 12, 2015 of pneumonia, after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage on February 4. Jim was born on May 1, 1935, the forth of six children, to Mildred and Lyle McCutcheon of Homewood. He attended a one-room school in Homewood, and high school in Carman. After completing grade 11, Jim pursued a Diploma of Agriculture at the University of Manitoba graduating in 1955. As a young man, Jim worked as a fireman for the C.N.R.; was employed by Hydraulic Engineering (forerunner of Versatile Equipment); and even helped out at Security Storage, in order to obtain first his private pilots license, then his commercial license, before flying a bush plane in northern Manitoba for Lamb Airways at The Pas. He married Frances Jean Kingdon of Basswood in 1959, and the couple began a small but successful certified seed farm on the home quarter of Robert McCutcheon, his grandfather. Jim was the father of three children Gaylene, Robert Ian and Allen Glen. He served many roles in the community: choir member and steward of both Homewood and Carman United churches, board member of Homewood Co-op and Dufferin Credit Union, and on the Funding Committee for the Carman Active Living Centre. All his life, Jim enjoyed solving problems, and sought out challenges, such as a seeding tool for zero tillage farming. Alas, he had to admit defeat to making a double disc opener which would work in all soil conditions time to hand over the problem to Clare Coburn of Atom Jet for engineering and production of openers which placed the seed on a firm seed bed and that farmers could use on their present equipment. Jim could now spend his time and energy sharing his experiences with zero till farming to all farmers and department extension people by way of on-farm tours and by making himself available for those interested in good conservation of the land. He was inducted into the Manitoba Agricultural Hall of Fame in 2002. Jim enjoyed reading about psychology, nutrition and health, and often exhorted his family and friends to take Vitamin D. He was a rather quiet man, but made friends in many walks of life, and found respect among his peers. He leaves to mourn his wife , Frances and his daughter Gaylene (Mark, Sam and Luke), as well as his grandson, Robert. Jim also leaves his sisters Joyce (Fred), Marion (Fraser) and Deanna (Wilf), and brothers Arnold (Ilace) and David, and well as his sisters in-law Betty (Alf), and Edith (Albert), and brothers in-law Charlie (Joan), Jim (Marg), Ray (Doreen), Ron (Gaileen), and sister in-law Karen.
We miss you, Jim, but you will live forever in our hearts. Love you always. The Family.Doyles Funeral Chapel in care of arrangements. www.doylesfuneralchapel.com
POGUE: Doris May (nee Morran). It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, at her residence in Dinsdale Personal Care Home, Brandon on March 22, 2015. Mom was born in Grandview, Manitoba on September 22, 1923. She and her two brothers were orphaned as small children and were raised by her parents cousins in Rathwell, Manitoba. She attended business college in Winnipeg and soon met our Dad, John (Jack) Pogue. They were married on June 24, 1947 at the same church that her parents had been married in 1918. Over the next eight years, they lived in Winnipeg, had a business in Belmont, and later Dad, who had served in the war, re-engaged in the army. We were posted to Germany when Dad became ill and we were transferred back to Winnipeg. In 1960 at the age of 38, we lost Dad to cancer. In 1961 we moved to MacGregor, Manitoba. Soon after, Mom started working for McKelvy Agencies, and worked with them until her retirement in 1987. Mom was active in the Anglican Church, was a fabulous gardener and cook, and enjoyed playing cards and bowling. She raised five children on her own with unconditional love, courage, and a quiet strength that will be felt forever. Left to cherish her memory are her children David (Arlene), Colleen (Jim), Roger (Linda), Linda, Lyle (Diane), her grandchildren Kent (Maureen), Tracy, Brian (Elyssa), Dean (Lindsay), Shauna (Tyler), Jenny (Carson), Charlie, Kirby, and Jonathan, as well as five great-grandsons, and many nieces, nephews, and dear friends. Besides her parents and our Dad, Mom was also pre-deceased by an infant sister Alice, and her two brothers, Jack and Frank. A private family interment will be held at Brookside Cemetery in Winnipeg. If friends so desire, donations in memory of Mom may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. We wish to thank the outstanding staff at Dinsdale for taking great care of Mom since 2011.

Puzzles were a favourite past time and she left a one thousand piece puzzle incomplete; the family has now finished it for her. She enjoyed a cabin at Clear Lake for many years. Going for a "Sunday" drive was one of her favourites. Deloris was active in the Douglas Women's Institute for thirty-eight years, where many a quilt was put together.
