THOMSON:Glen Franklin Thomson passed away peacefully in Brandon after a short battle with cancer on October 31, 2014. Glen was predeceased by his wife Marilyn and leaves behind his three children; Don (Jennifer), Cheryl (John), and Garth (Deanna) along with grandchildren Josh, Mary, Paige, Jossa, Jacob, and Tyler. Glen was born in Portage on August 22, 1935 to Melvin and Iverna Thomson of Austin. He was raised on the family farm and in the Austin area. Glen was valedictorian of the first graduating class of Austin High School in 1953 and cherished the friendships of those classmates for the rest of his life. It was also at Austin high school that he met the love of his life, Marilyn. After working on the family farm and fuel business following graduation, Glen headed to Northwestern Ontario to survey while his fiancé Marilyn worked in Winnipeg. They were engaged in Winnipeg and moved to Brandon following their wedding on June 14th, 1958 in Austin. They purchased their Brandon home on Queens Avenue in 1960, which remained their home to present. Glen continued to work as a surveyor until 1966 when he took a travelling sales position at Frank Lawson & Sons. A great relationship builder, Glen established a strong network of dealers and customers who appreciated his can do attitude. He continued to count many of those customers as friends throughout his life. Like Marilyn, Glen greatly enjoyed family time during the holidays. Whether picking the Christmas tree with his daughter or taking the family on road trips across the prairies, these were special times for the family. His children fondly remember those summer excursions where Glen was able to dedicate his time to following their pursuits and interests along with sharing much laughter. In 1970, Glen bought the family 1/4 section from his parents, and planted the first crop of what would become Glen-Mar farms. Over the course of the next four and half decades and with the support of family and valued employees, he slowly but surely expanded the farm to 1800 acres, taking his last crop off this fall. He was both proud of the innovations he brought to his farm such as zero-till seeding, growing hemp along with his common sense approach to maintaining traditional practice when it was the best choice. Glen was at home on the field and it was his refuge from his busy business life. He greatly enjoyed being a mentor to young area farmers who sought his advice. During uncertain economic times in the mid-1980’s, Glen partnered with Bill Hamilton to create Glendale Industrials on Douglas Avenue in the city’s East End. Originally focusing on horse and stock trailers, the company became a leader in vacuum pump trucks and miscellaneous metal fabrication. Glen’s time at Glendale showcased his considerable skills as an innovator, leader, manager and salesman. Glen reflected on his time at Glendale as being some of the most rewarding work of his career. Retiring from his ‘day job’ in 1998, Glen continued to farm as well as redirecting his energy into his six grandchildren. Along with Marilyn, they travelled the province in winter and summer proudly following their exploits on the rink, in the gym, and on the fields. Glen’s competitive spirit lives on in them. Glen’s interment service was held at the Austin Cemetery on November 6th. A celebration of his life took place at the Central United Church in Brandon on the same day. Celebrant Kim Lewarne presided over the service and eloquently spoke to many of the endearing qualities of Glen. His two sons, Don and Garth, gave a thoughtful, caring and descriptive picture of his life. His six grandchildren prepared a letter to their grandfather that was shared during the service. Family, friends, and colleagues, in both the Brandon and Austin communities, will lovingly miss Glen. He will always be remembered for his integrity, passion, and commitment. Donations in memory of Glen may be made to the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation, “Cancer Services” or “Palliative Care,” 150 McTavish Avenue East, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 2B3.

COSGROVE-MINARY: (née Butterfield): Marlene Anne. The family of Marlene Cosgrove-Minary regretfully and sadly announce her peaceful passing on October 31, 2014 at the Assiniboine Centre with family and a close friend at her side. She was born in Brandon on November 26, 1941 to Clifford Jackson and Vera Agnes Butterfield. Marlene, the youngest of eight children, was raised and educated in Alexander, MB. She is survived by sister Fern Rae of Souris, MB, sister June Seddon (Phil) of Winnipeg, Isabel Tjaden (Bill) of Sperling, MB, brother-in-law Bill Haggerty (Sandra) of Elgin, MB, sisters-in-law Marlene Butterfield of Brandon, Jessie Butterfield of Swan River, MB and Donna Lowery (Ron) of Carman, MB, numerous nieces and nephews, as well as great and great-great nieces and nephews and many many friends. She was predeceased by her husband Andrew Dennison (Denny) Minary, her parents Clifford and Vera, Allie Robertson, sister Mazie (Haggerty), brothers Jim, Dale, Doug, and Frank, brothers-in-law Glen Rae, Armand Godard and Harold Locke, nephews Rodney Butterfield, Ronald Locke, and nieces Sharon Locke and Susan Day. As a young person, Marlene started her career in Virden and after residing in Virden, Souris and Brandon, she moved to the farm near Nesbitt with Denny. After retiring from the Manitoba Telephone System, she filled her days working at Souris Daycare Centre where she was fondly known as “Grandma Marlene.” Marlene loved her life on the farm with Denny where she spent many hours volunteering in both Nesbitt and Wawanesa communities. Her tireless efforts to keep family bonds strong by updating family trees and photo albums, instigating the gathering of the family troupes and acknowledging special anniversaries and events was much appreciated by her family. Marlene enjoyed sports and loved curling. While some would say her competitiveness on the ice was somewhat excessive, off the ice her bonspiel mentality was great fun. Together with Denny, or on her own, she was diligent in following the efforts of family and friends at curling, hockey, baseball or whatever game was being played. Marlene enjoyed travelling. Her trips included Alaska, Churchill and the Maritimes with Denny, as well as many trips to her favorite casinos and a cruise, which created great memories of fun times spent with family and friends. Music was a big part of Marlene’s life. She was humble about her keyboard abilities, perhaps understandable while comparing herself to Denny’s talent. Family functions were often celebrated with their music and lots of dancing. Marlene will be lovingly remembered by all who knew her. A graveside service will be held Thursday, November 6, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the Patterson Family Cemetery ( 2 3/4 miles east of the Nesbitt turn off on #2 highway & 3 miles south). Family and friends are welcome. Fellowship at the Nesbitt Hall to follow the service. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Marlene may be made to the Patterson Family Cemetery c/o Tim Patterson, P.O. Box 64, Pipestone, MB, R0M 1T0.
