SMITH: Dr. Murray R. It is with great sadness that the family of Murray Smith announces his passing in Brandon, Manitoba on Saturday, February 1st, 2014. Born 1943 in Winnipeg, Murray began his public school teaching career in St. James, continuing in Niagara Falls and then Fort Garry where he became a vice-principal and principal. He married Sally-Anne Anderson in 1969. Murray moved his young family to Oxford House in northern Manitoba in 1977 where he served as the Centre Coordinator with the Brandon University Northern Teacher Education Project. Murray’s next adventure began when he joined the Frontier School Division as a science consultant out of Dauphin, Manitoba. He also began working on his Ph.D. through the University of British Columbia. In 1989, Murray joined the Faculty of Education at Brandon University where his commitment to science education won admiration from students and colleagues alike. During his time at the university he wrote curricula and textbooks and travelled internationally, notably to the Caribbean, South America and Africa where he passed on his knowledge of science teaching to the next generation. A passionate educator, Murray’s impact on science education will be felt for generations both locally and internationally. His accomplishments earned him a Science Educator of the year award in 1982. Life for Murray was a continuing journey. He was a man of many interests. He and Sally enjoyed canoeing, camping, skiing and traveling. They also collected stamps and fossils. Murray’s interest in fossils started when he was 11 and grew throughout the years. He cultivated many a young person’s interest and was always keen to share his knowledge. After a lifetime of collecting, Murray published a book documenting Manitoba’s fossil outcrops but the crown jewel in his fossil hunting hobby was finding a previously undiscovered species of crab that was eventually named after him. Recently Murray donated his extensive collection of fossils to a museum where they can inspire future rock hounds. Murray was also actively involved in Toastmasters, rising to the rank of Governor. Since retiring Murray and Sally studied Zen Tao Tai Chi and travelled often to China for instruction. He is survived by his loving wife Sally-Anne, daughters Karen Smith of Brandon and Glenda Pratt, son-in-law Andrew Pratt and granddaughters Lauren and Haley of Winnipeg. Murray is also survived by his brother Ross Smith and sister-in-law Marilyn of Winnipeg. A Celebration of Murray’s Life will take place at Memories Chapel, 330 18th Street North, Brandon on Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. Neil McQuarrie will officiate. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice in Murray’s honour will be appreciated.

BJARNASON: It is with great sadness the family of Carl Bjarnason announces his passing in Victoria, British Columbia, on January 30, 2014. A prominent educator and academic in his native Manitoba, his life-long commitment to excellence in education - public education, in particular - won great admiration from friends, family and professional colleagues. Born in Brandon, Manitoba on August 20th, 1915, Carl grew up in a Canadian-Icelandic culture that traditionally put great value on learning. As a youngster he developed a fascination with history that stayed with him throughout his life. He was especially intrigued by the lure of ancient Rome (he taught Latin) and felt the Romans had lessons for us today in culture, politics and the arts. He found something of value and interest in a vast array of themes ... from American history to the Carolingian kings who ruled central Europe in the eighth and ninth centuries. Carl felt one of the giants of history was the greatest of the Carolingians: Charlemagne, who although basically illiterate himself, promoted public education and learning. He was intrigued by mathematics (which he also taught) and was enchanted by its poetic and elegant symmetry. As a young man he devoured the works of mathematicians Bertrand Russell and Alfred North Whitehead. Education, Carl felt, was the key to almost everything. He literally saved nickels and dimes to send himself to university where he earned a BA at Brandon College; and earned degrees at the University of British Columbia; the University of London, London, England; and earning finally a PhD from Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich. His career started as a school teacher in rural Manitoba; interrupted by service in the RCAF during World War 2; then a high school teacher in Brandon, where he soon was promoted to a school principal, then superintendent of all the city’s schools, and in 1966 became dean of Education Administration at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg until his retirement in At teacher training college he became best friends with Ray Spafford and in October 1941 married Ray's pretty young sister, Edna. For the next seventy years, Edna and Carl made a lethal, take-no-prisoners Bridge team, until Edna’s death in 2011. Together, they loved relaxing at the cottage they built at Lake Killarney in Manitoba. They traveled frequently through the US and Europe and Iceland. (Carl worked valiantly to learn Icelandic over the years, with modest success). And both would unwind on occasion with a smooth Scotch, although Edna could opt instead for her favorite rye (on the rocks). Carl had a great love of and pride in his country and felt it was capable of great things. The key to a democracy’s greatness, he argued endlessly, was its commitment to public education. He had no patience with the argument that private schools are better. If they’re better, he said, the moral imperative is not to simply accept it, but rather to make the public system the best. He argued that case all his life. A memorial celebration will be held in Victoria at a date to be announced. Carl was predeceased by his wife, Edna; Icelandic immigrant parents, Gurun and Sigurdur; and by sisters Dora, Helen, Margaret, Runi; and by brothers Herman, Joni, Kay, Marty, and Allan. He is survived by sons and daughters-in-law Dan and Nance of Toronto; David and Linda of Brandon, Manitoba, and grandson Jeff, of Brandon.

HAMMOND: It is with great sadness we announce that on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at his home in Brandon, John (Jack) Alexander Hammond slipped away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 88 years. Jack was born October 12, 1925 on the family farm in the community of Westhall, Manitoba, midway between Deloraine and Hartney. He was the third child of Harry and Annie (Reid) Hammond, brother of Fern (Merle Maguire), Mel (Edna Jones) and Marie (Jack Huxley). On November 20, 1954 Jack married the love of his life, Eva Jane Moore of Elgin. Together Jack and Eva raised two children: Heather (Ernie Braun) and Paul (Ania) in the family farmhouse at Westhall. Jack was a kind and devoted husband, father, grandpa and great-grandpa. He loved spending time with his kids and grandchildren: Jason Cassils (Kim), Monica Baldwin (Bryce), Michelle Riddell (Kasey) and Brittani Hammond (Trent) and especially his 7 great-grandchildren: Rianna, Jadyn, Dylan, Mia, Ashton, Ella and Emma. His step-grandchildren were Magdelena Dec (Chad), Karolina Dec, Sean Braun (Brenda), Heather Neufeld (Tim), and Ryan Braun (Martha). Jack was a very humble, yet determined person who always put the needs of others before his own. He led by example and showed family and friends how to treat others with kindness, respect, and generosity. Jack was always positive, enjoyed telling jokes and always loved a good laugh himself. You could always find him tinkering with and fixing things, playing with new gadgets, taking pictures and listening to music and the weather forecast on his little portable radio. Jack enjoyed playing hockey with the Dand team, playing his saxophone, curling, snowmobiling and even tried his hand at downhill skiing later in life. In 1954 Jack and Eva took over the family farm and together they tore down old farm buildings, removed trees and planted many new ones. They took great pride in their yard, always having lots of flowers to brighten it up along with a great vegetable garden. They also spent many hours updating and repairing the old stone farmhouse built in 1897 and added a new living room in 1966. Paul and Ania still reside here 116 years after the original stone house was built. Jack and Eva retired to Brandon in 1989 after 35 years of farming at which time Paul took over the farm. Jacks love for farming never waivered and he returned to the farm for many years during the busy seasons, even as recently as this past fall when he came out and climbed aboard a combine to help finish the harvest. You could still see the gleam in his eyes that day. While living in Brandon Jack spent his days tinkering in his workshop and happily planting more trees and flowers in their yard at Brentwood Village. Jack was living at Fernwood Estates on the south side of Brandon. Eva resides at Fairview Personal Care Home. Jack was predeceased by his parents Harry and Annie, Sister Fern and Brother Mel. A graveside memorial service was held at the Elgin cemetery on Friday, January 17, 2014 followed by a time of fellowship and lunch at the Elgin Community hall. In memory of Jack, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Cancer Care Manitoba. Expression of sympathy may be made at www.kowalchuks.net
