To Those I LoveWhen I am gone, release me, let me go,You musn’t tie yourself to me with tears.Just be happy that we had so many years.I gave you my love, you can only guess,how much you gave to me in happiness.I thank you for the love you each have shown,But now it’s time I traveled alone.So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must,Then let your grief be comforted by trust.It’s only for a while that we must part,So bless the memories within your heart.I won’t be far away, for life goes on,So if you need me, call, and I will come.Though you can’t see, or touch, I’ll be nearAnd if you listen with your heart, you’ll hearAll of my love around you, soft and clear.And then, when you must come this way alone.I’ll greet you with a smile, and say“Welcome Home”

JORDAN: Keith Robert JordanMay 7, 1948- January, 19, 2015. It is with deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Keith Robert Jordan on January 19, 2015 at the Health Science Center in Winnipeg. He will be sadly missed by his spouse, Charlotte Lehman, his daughter, Michelle (Jason), his son, Marty (Jennifer), children of Jean Jordan. Keith’s pride and joys included grandsons, Logan, Landon, Brandt, and Cole and granddaughter, Kelsey who will forever hold Grandpa in their hearts. He will be forever remembered by his brothers, Raymond, Ken (Charlotte), and Lloyd (Pat) along with many nieces, nephews and friends. Keith was predeceased by his parents, Fred and Annie Jordan. Keith was born May 7, 1948 just minutes ahead of his twin brother, Ken in Whitewood, Sk. He grew up on a farm in Silverwood District. He attended Silverwood Country School from Grade 1-7. He then attended Whitewood High School. After High School, he attended the University of Regina where he graduated with his Bachelor of Education Degree in 1970. Keith spent his summers working for local farmers as well as for TransCanada Pipeline. On August 8th, 1970, Keith married Jean Hosler whom he shared his life with for the next 39 years. Keith and Jean had two children, Michelle in 1972 and Marty in 1975. Upon receiving his teaching degree, Keith got a job at Carnduff Elementary School. He taught Junior High and after 3 years became the Vice-Principal. Keith remained in this role for 19 years and then became Vice-Principal of Carnduff High School where he also taught all levels of math. In total, Keith was a teacher in Carnduff for 32 years. Following his retirement, Keith and Jean made their home in Neepawa, Manitoba where he lived for the next 12 years. Keith had many interests and hobbies. This included coaching hockey, playing fastball, umping ball, picking bottles, cutting grass, gardening, shovelling snow, as well as camping with friends and family. Keith had to be busy. He spent his spare time when he wasn’t at his school, driving truck for farmers or even the fuel truck for the Co-op. Keith loved his trips with family, especially those to Minneapolis to watch baseball. He also enjoyed his years at their cabin at White Bear Lake where he spent countless hours pushing his grandchildren on the swing and making memories with his family. One of Keith’s passions was officiating hockey which he did for 45 years. He took great pride in mentoring all officials and spending time at the rink. While residing in Neepawa, his family discovered Keith had not actually retired from teaching as he continued to substitute teach almost 5 days a week alongside tutoring math students. He also worked for the Faculty of Education for Brandon University supervising aspiring teachers. Keith and Jean separated in 2009 and later he found renewed happiness once again with Charlotte Lehman whom he has shared his life with for the last five years. They enjoyed trips out west and spending time with both sides of their family. Keith was a very selfless, hardworking man who cherished his family whom he would do anything for. Keith leaves an everlasting legacy for not only his family but also for anyone he spent time with. A celebration of Keith’s life will be held at the Neepawa Yellowhead Centre on January 26th, 2015 at 1:00 pm. If friends or family so desire, donations can be made in his memory to Neepawa Minor Hockey or the Neepawa Yellowhead Centre. Funeral arrangements with White’s Funeral Home, Neepawa, MB.

She will also be remembered by her great grandchildren Jessica (Rainy), Briana, Ian, and Philip Smith, Bennet, Lizzie and Jane Rochon, R.J. Kai and Angie Martinez, Lucas and Jessie Harvey, and Alex, Isabelle and Nolan Harvey.

Jean was born in Toronto and lived also in Winnipeg and Port Arthur. She attended University of Toronto and United College, graduating with a BA and the love of her life, Ian Harvey. She attended Normal School, then married Ian in 1941 and moved to Oxford House, where she taught and Ian worked as a minister with the United Church of Canada. She left teaching when the family started to grow with the arrival of their children. Later she worked in the children’s departments of public libraries in Winnipeg and St. Catherines, using her love of and wide knowledge of children and books to great advantage. She and Ian lived and worked in Cross Lake, Deloraine, Silver Heights in Winnipeg, St. Catherines and Brandon, where Ian retired. After Ian’s death in 1985 she remained in Brandon until 2005, when she moved back to Winnipeg. One of her great passions was books - poetry, history, literature, biographies, and above all the King James Version of the Bible. Her children were treated to books read aloud by Jean and Ian all the time they lived at home – a practice the couple continued through their whole married life. Jean was a superb storyteller, a fact attested to by her children and grandchildren, and by the many children who attended Sunday school or Junior Congregation in the various churches she and Ian served. She was an advocate and example of lifelong learning and an avid genealogist. She loved camping and canoeing with the family, something she did from a very early age. Jean was also noted for her work teaching English to hundreds of immigrants in Brandon, and for preparing many of them for Citizenship. For this she was awarded the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada Medal in 1992. She developed friendships with people from many parts of the world, and loved to learn from them. Though declining health slowed her down in later years, she kept her great sense of humour and her love of poetry to the end. She will be sorely missed. Many thanks to the caring staff at River East Personal Care Home. Memorial service and celebration of her life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 24th at Gordon King Memorial United Church, 127 Cobourg Avenue, Winnipeg, with a reception to follow. No fragrances please – severe family allergies. Interment of her ashes will be held at a later date.In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada, 10-120 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 9Z9 or the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 6 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3L 0K6.
