MARTIN: Roy George Martin, age 60 years, died on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. Roy was born to the late Roy and Eveline Martin, on June 9, 1953 in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba. Roy lived in Shilo, Manitoba, until his father's retirement from the Canadian Armed Forces. When Roy was 15 years of age, his father relocated the family to Brandon in 1968. Roy remained in Brandon for the rest of his life. He attended Vincent Massey High School, and then went on to work for metal industries as a labourer. “Roy Roy” as he was called in his younger years by his family members, loved to hunt and fish. He looked forward to those “hunting” trips, even if it was at times, as they say to “push the bush” or listen to the peace and quietness. But, when it was a successful hunt with his brother Jack and nephews, Steven and Michael it made Roy the happiest, knowing that there was meat in the freezer for another year. His other love was “fishing” and if you ever saw Roy on the banks of the river, you would have also seen his nephew Andrew. Together they definitely made the best “fishing buds”. Roy is survived by his seven siblings, Larry (Lise) of Vanier, Ontario, Jim (Marna) of Calgary, AB, Jack (Linda) of Forrest, MB, Raymond (Darline) of Brandon, Marie (Ron) of Kamloops, BC, Penny (Dennis) of Elkford, BC and Rick (Deb) of Shilo. He is also survived by his long time special friend Gayle, and his many, many nieces and nephews. Roy was predeceased by his parents and his very memorable, Uncle George. The Funeral Ceremony will be held at Memories Chapel, 330-18th Street North on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at 1:30 pm. Lydia Glawson, Funeral Celebrant will officiate. Interment will take place at Brandon Cemetery. Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations in memory of Roy may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 3-824-18th Street, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 5B7.

JENKINS: Francis Edward (Ted) Jenkins passed away suddenly on January 8, 2014 at the age of 68. Ted was born at Shoal Lake, MB on December 23, 1945, second eldest to Jack and Irene Jenkins. He grew up on the family farm and attended school in McConnell, MB. In 1964 the family moved to Oak Lake, MB. Ted first worked at diamond drilling for a short time and then started road construction. In 1972 he married Joan Robertson, and they lived in Winnipeg where he was employed with CP Transport and then CP Investigations. In 1979 they moved to Shoal Lake, MB where he started his own feedlot cleaning business in the Shoal Lake/Oakburn area. They moved to Oak Lake, MB in 1983 where he worked for Lewis Cattle Oilers for a short time before going back to his passion of operating heavy equipment and road building. He worked for the RM of Sifton and various construction companies over the years building roads in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Ted was very proud of his son, Aron and two daughters, Teresa and Shannon. He enjoyed spending time with them and their families. Memories of camping trips, fishing trips and trail rides were among some of our favorite times spent together. His grandchildren were very special and always brought a smile to his face. Besides hunting and fishing all his life, Ted had a way with animals and loved to train horses and dogs. Ted loved country and western and old time music, and dancing with his wife. He also loved to sit down and play a good game of cards. He was very proud of receiving the most popular driver trophy during his stock car racing days in 1968 in Dauphin. Another accomplishment his family has always been very proud of him for was saving two lives in a boating incident in 1966 credited to his strong swimming ability. Ted could often be found at the coffee shop. He loved teasing people and always had a joke ready to tell or a story to share. We will always miss his frequent warm hugs and the glint in his eye that went along with his mischievous grin. Ted is lovingly remembered by his wife, Joan and children Aron (Lindsey), Teresa and Shannon (Dave), grandchildren Adrianna, Jayden, Kalla and Koel, his mother, Irene Jenkins, his siblings, Faye Morcombe, Brian Jenkins, Joyce Arnold and April Jenkins, sisters-in-law Eileen Jenkins, Ann Denorer and Irene MacMillan, brother-in-law Allan Robertson, and several nieces and nephews. Ted was predeceased by his father Jack Jenkins, brothers-in-law Allan Morcombe, Jim Denorer and Gordon MacMillan. Ted was recently joined by his brother, Terry, on January 24, 2014. A celebration of Ted’s life was held on May 10, 2014 at the Oak Lake Community Hall with Don Sellsted officiating. Our loving husband, father, grandfather, son and brother will be dearly missed. If anyone so desires, donations in Ted’s memory can be made to the Heart and Stroke foundation of MB, #3 824 18th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 5B7 or to the Canadian Diabetes Association, Western Region, Unit A1-800 Rosser Ave, Brandon, MB, R7A 6N5.

FINCH: Early in the morning on Tuesday, May 13th, 2014, Shirley (Lee) Etta Finch (née Armstrong) of Brandon, Manitoba, quietly left to be with her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Lee was born on March 14, 1927, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Her early years were spent in Eastend, Saskatchewan, among rolling hills, where she learned to ride horses and to love nature. Her next move was to Morris, Manitoba, where she spent her school years. From there, she moved to United College in Winnipeg and then on to Brandon College, where she completed her Bachelor of Arts.It was at United College that she met her future husband, Edward John Finch, one of the many veterans who began university after the Second World War. They were married on the 14th of May, 1949, and first lived in Stonewall, Manitoba, where Edward was articled to a lawyer while attending Law school in Winnipeg. Shortly after his graduation, the couple moved to Brandon, where Edward began employment in the Land Titles office. During their early years in Brandon, Lee worked in a number of positions, but she most enjoyed her work as library assistant at Brandon College (now Brandon University), where she helped to establish a film services department. While working at the college, Lee met a young Asian girl who had come to Canada to attend university. Lee and Ed eventually invited her to live with them until she completed her studies. Over the years, their relationship deepened and they became a family, maintaining a close relationship with each other to this day, long after her eventual return to Hong Kong. Lee was beautiful, poised and gracious. She always knew what she wanted and worked hard to achieve those goals. She was musically and artistically talented and enjoyed decorating, sewing and working on her doll houses. Ed and Lee spent many happy years at both their country home in Kemnay and at their summer cottage at Killarney Lake, where they were able to enjoy the beauty of nature and spend time in the company of family and friends. They moved briefly to British Columbia during the nineties, but ultimately decided to return to the prairies, settling in Brandon to be closer to loved ones again. Lee and Ed attended St. George’s Anglican Church in Brandon. Due to the strong biblical teaching Lee received at both St. George’s Church and the many diocesan spiritual renewal conferences she attended, her faith continued to grow and she took on many responsibilities within the church, such as leadership in Bible studies, conducting the choir and playing the organ for many years. Lee was predeceased by her father and mother, Percival and Margaret Armstrong, and her brother Austin (Fan) Armstrong. She is survived by her husband Edward Finch, her “adopted” daughter Irene (Simon) Li and family, her brother-in-law Wilfred Finch, and many nieces and nephews and their families. The family would like to thank all those employed at Dinsdale Personal Care Home for their loving and compassionate care for Lee during her years at the home, and the Dinsdale Board for its decision to accept Edward into the Home so that he could be close to Lee during her final months.The funeral service was held on May 29th, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. in St. George’s Anglican Church in Brandon with Father Chad McCharles and The Rev. Canon Jim Brown officiating.In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. George’s Anglican Church or to a charity of one’s choice.

God looked around his gardenAnd saw an empty spaceHe then looked downUpon this earthAnd saw your tired face. He put his arms around youAnd lifted you to rest, God’s garden mustbe beautifulHe only takes the best. He saw the roadWas getting roughAnd the hillsWere hard to climbSo He closed your weary eyelidsAnd whispered“Peace be thine.”
