Ella married Len in 1923 and moved to Atikokan, ON for many years. During WWII when Len was overseas, Ella looked after the two boys. The family then moved to Percival, Whitewood and Moosomin, SK where Ella managed restaurants. The next move was to Thompson, MB for many years, then Len retired to Swan River. Their final move was to Brandon. In Thompson, Ella was passionate about YBC (Youth Bowling), was a jail-guard for the RCMP and was President/Life Member of the Legion Ladies Auxiliary. Being an excellent cook, she coordinated banquets for the Thompson Legion (which was a huge help in paying down the Legion mortgage).

Her generosity and fabulous food will be missed by the many grandchildren and great grandchildren. A special thank you to all the staff and volunteers who shared the last few years with Ella at the Fairview Home.
MISS ME, BUT LET ME GO
When I come to the end of the roadAnd 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 longAnd not with your head bowed low,Remember the love that we once sharedMiss me, but let me go.For this journey we all must takeAnd each must go alone,It's part of the Master's plan,A step on the road to home.So when you are lonely and sick at heartGo to the friends we know,And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,Miss me, but let me go.

ANGUS: Gordon Fraser: December 19, 1938 May 3, 2012; beloved husband of Barbara, entered into rest at the Hamiota District Health Centre. Fraser was born in Crandall, MB, the second son of Gordon and Irene Angus. Frasers early years were spent on the farm, between Lenore and Crandall, with his brothers Melvin and Don and sister Doreen. Fraser attended Ravine School. During his last few years of schooling, he lived and worked for the Brays: Stella, Nellie and Harvey, going to school from their home. Fraser well remembered their kindness. Upon leaving school, he began to work for local farmers. Later he began to work in the construction business under the watchful eye of Lester Brown of Lenore. Out of these years developed a love for both farming and construction work. He continued working in both until a carbon monoxide accident destroyed his lungs in January, 2000. Shortly after this tragedy, he and Barbara retired to Oak River. Fraser married Barbara Power in December of 1958, following which they settled down to farming in the Oak River district where they raised their children Marianne and Colin. Eventually daughter Marianne married the boy next door, Alex Gerrard. They farmed together until Frasers retirement. During those years they had the joy of sharing in the growing up years of their grandchildren Bobbi, Gordon and Raymond. After retiring to Oak River, the joy of Frasers life were his great grandchildren Seth, Kalen, Avery White and Rachelle Gerrard. Fraser and Barbara were blest with 53 years of marriage. In the early years of the marriage they were also privileged to have Frasers cousins, Bob and Brian Taylor, come from the city of Winnipeg to spend the summer in the country. During the winter months Fraser at various times enjoyed curling, ski-dooing and trapping. In the fall he enjoyed deer hunting with the boys. During the summer months (if time) he enjoyed fishing and attempting to water ski. They enjoyed several winter time trips to the United States mostly in the company of Barbaras cousins from the Lloydminster area, Glen and Hazel Detchon, and one trip to Las Vegas with Alexs parents, Tom and Lil Gerrard. In the fall of 2002 they had one final great adventure travelling by train and ferry to the Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii) to visit son Colin, an engineer in the forestry industry, and his wife Claudia. Fraser even caught a big salmon! Fraser is survived by his wife Barbara; daughter Marianne (Alex) Gerrard; son Colin (Claudia) Angus; granddaughter Bobbi (Jeff) White; grandsons Gordon and Raymond Gerrard; great grandchildren Seth, Kalen, Avery White, Rachelle Gerrard; sister Doreen (Bill) Edgar; brother Don (Shirley) Angus; sister in-law Anne Mawer and several cousins, nieces and nephews. Fraser was predeceased by his parents Gordon and Irene; his brother Melvin; and his brothers in-law Ray Power, Rodger Mawer, and Jim Edgar. A private family interment was held at Scotia Cemetery following which the service to celebrate Frasers life was held in Oak River, May 8, 2012, with Pastor Jason Hodson officiating.
