SAGER: Elsie Christina Sager (nee Tawse) – Suddenly on December 15th, 2013 in her 77th year, at Boissevain Health Center. Elsie was born June 23, 1937 in Souris Hospital to the late Adam Tawse (1968) and Catherine Lawson Johnston (1939), and lost her mother at a very young age. She and her sister Dorothy grew up in Carroll and were raised by their grandmother. Elsie attended the Carroll school. She worked at Souris Hospital for a couple of years until she married Floyd Sager on Oct. 29, 1955 in Carroll. Their three daughters were born while they lived on the family farm near Griswold. Elsie joined the workforce again once their daughters were in school, and worked at Kmart and McLeod’s store, and then at Brandon General Hospital as an operating room aide until retirement. They left their farm in 1973 and moved to Brandon. They spent a number of summers in their trailer at Oak Lake, before purchasing their lakeside vacation home in Killarney in 1994. This very pink cabin was called the Pink Flamingo until its coloured changed – then it became the Grey Oaks. They spent many happy summers there, before making it their permanent residence in 1998. Upon retirement, they spent 13 winters in Texas and gathered a large collection of friends there from throughout the continent. Elsie dearly loved cooking fancy dinners for large groups of people and entertaining friends and family. Elsie and Floyd enjoyed travelling together, parties with friends, golfing, and boating around the lake on the Shenanigan. She will be remembered for her great love for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and was a devoted sister and wife. She is survived and will be deeply missed by her husband of 58 years, Floyd; her three daughters, Debbie Johnson, Myrna (Tom Mead) and their sons Jason (Lesley) Mead and Adam Mead (Tara Howe), and Penny (Ron Foster) and their children Devin (Amy) Foster and Michelle (Kyle Cunnington); also great-grandsons Austin, Logan, Ethan and Lucas Mead; Braden and Liam Mead; and Owen and Aiden Foster; and her sister, Dorothy Grummett. Cremation and a private family gathering were carried out according to Elsie’s wishes, and a celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Arrangements were in the care of Wheatland Funeral Chapel. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Elsie’s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Palliative Care Unit at the Killarney hospital.

KORZENIOWSKI: Alex Korzeniowski 06 November, 1928 – 16 December, 2013. Alex peacefully slipped away on Monday, suffering with Alzheimer’s disease. He was 85 years old and after 62 years of marriage, leaves his wife, Sylvia, his siblings, Jennie, Joe (Marlene), Stan (Ellen), his sons, Gerald (Bonnie) and Bob (Judy), and grandchildren Alexis (Dan), Nicole, Isabel as well as Karen (John), Kathryn and Bryan. Alex was born in Grandview, MB and grew up through difficult times on their nearby farm where he attended the local one room school with his siblings. After a short term in the Royal Canadian Artillery during the last part of WW2, he attended Teacher’s College in Winnipeg and was soon teaching in similar rural schools. Although he taught in a number of rural locations, he always cherished his time teaching in the Northern community of South Indian Lake and all that entailed in those days. Alex carried these memories with him for as long as he had. Alex however, was always pursuing new challenges and later taught in a number of schools in Brandon. This led to his term as Truant Officer, followed by a career in Probation and Parole with the Government of Manitoba. Later, his professional career path led into the, then infant ‘New Careers Program’ and his specialty: Life Skills Training. He regarded this part of his life with special pride and had the highest regard for the people he worked with. During his entire career, Alex never lost his love for the outdoors, in thanks to his time in the North, and always enjoyed camping, hunting and fishing. In the later years he always maintained a cottage and all that cottage life offers; boating, water sports, golfing and the like, but especially fishing. Alex retired relatively early and enjoyed a lengthy period of time living in the Okanagan and wintering in Phoenix. Throughout it all, he always maintained an extremely active role in all facets of whichever community he resided. The common thread throughout Alex’s life was his enduring love of family and people; Alex was a ‘people’ person and always had time for all the people in his life. Alex will be cremated and come to his final resting place in Brandon, alongside his parents; Steve and Tilley. A small service will be held at 2:30 p.m., 17 January, 2014 at Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332 8th Street, Brandon, MB and the family will hold a private interment at a later date. The family wishes to gratefully acknowledge the high level of care and sensitivity provided by the Oakview Place staff during his stay with them. In lieu of flowers, donations in Alex’s name may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, 4B-457-9th Street, Brandon, MB, R7A 4A9.

DUFF: (Olive) Bernice Duff August 12th 1933 to December 16th, 2013. Whether Obie, Fudd, or Bernice, no matter what you called her, to many she was a dear friend and to a fortunate few she was family. She never wrote a best selling novel or climbed the tallest mountain but her achievements in life far exceeded these because she lived with a heart as vast and open as the prairie she grew up on. Born in Deloraine, Manitoba on the family farm to Alma and Earl, Bernice was the second of four children including Audrey, Larry, and Noreen. Bernice attended Kirkwood School and Deloraine Collegiate. Growing up, Bernice was not averse to finding trouble - and where she couldn’t find it she created it! She had the same attitude towards fun and friendship throughout her life. Later, Bernice worked as a Switchboard Operator in Deloraine before leaving for Winnipeg to do the same for King George Hospital and Bristol Aerospace before arriving at her chosen career at General Motors where she remained until her retirement in 1993. Predeceased by her mother and father Alma and Earl Babcock, sister Audrey Colquhoun and brother Larry Babcock, Bernice leaves behind many to celebrate her life including brother-in-law Jim Colquhoun, many nephews and nieces including Jim Colquhoun, Steve (Penny) Colquhoun, Cheryl (Carson) Hobbs, Lynn (Spencer) Silver, and Phyllis (Don) Morrison. Bernice enjoyed a very special friendship with her sister Noreen Coates and Noreen’s husband Jim translating into many family gatherings filled with laughter, games, and wonderful memories. Bernice learned there was no world problem that couldn’t be solved without a “wee wine”, a deck chair, and her sister Noreen nearby. The special bond Bernice had with her nephew Geret Coates (Robb Ritchie) and their son Joshua transcended the typical aunt - nephew relationship. To Geret she was “Fudd”. She was also a trusted confidant, a close friend, and an admired role model. She was always there for Geret and Robb and could be counted on for an ear to listen, a shoulder to lean on, and a laugh to share. It is said that friends are the family that we choose. Bernice chose well. She valued her afternoon visits with neighbour Ardy (Dennis) and her long time friendships with Sue (Jack) and Jeannie (Scotty). Bernice also had a special place in her heart for her furry and feathered friends whether her dogs Haggis and Kiska or the birds who frequented the many birdhouses in her yard. Though, in her later years, Bernice experienced discomfort, she never let that take away from her three favourite pastimes: The 3 S’s: sports, spirits, and Sudoku. Her kindness had no bounds and her hugs were highly valued by those lucky enough to receive them. She would open her house as wide as she opened her heart and arms to greet you. It was the kind of person she was. And while Bernice may have never had children, there were those of us who thought of her as our “other” mom. And, while she may never have had grandchildren, there were those of us who proudly called her Gramma Fudd. The treasured staff at the Grace Hospice, to whom we are truly grateful, once wrote on the white board in her room that Fudd stood for “Fantastic. Unique. Delightful. Divine.” Bernice Duff was indeed all of these. But more than that, she was deeply loved, for a brief time she was ours, and forever she will be missed. In lieu of flowers, hug your loved ones a little tighter.
