When out with mom, several students she taught came up to her and asked "Do you remember teaching me?". She always did and then would share a story. Elsie married George on February 15, 1974 and they raised their two sons, Darwin and Kelvin, and had a wonderful life together. They enjoyed many sunsets in their beautiful backyard and had so much fun with their granddaughters, family members and friends. Elsie loved socializing, playing crokinole, and dancing with her long time friend Clayton Gall. She enjoyed his friendship and was very thankful he was part of her life. Elsie enjoyed the many wonderful friendships she made at the senior centre as those were some of the happiest times for her. We will all miss game nights, little parties, visits and talks with her. She told us many times over the last few months that her first dancing partner will be waiting for her with those big arms and she can't wait to see him. The family would like to thank the Grace Hospice staff who grew to love mom's personality and who were so caring toward all of us. A special thanks to the General and Pasqua Hospital Emergency nurses and doctors, palliative care nurses and doctors, and a most grateful thank you to Dr. Datta, Dr. Duffy, Dr. Abdulla, Dr. Bone, Dr. Smith and Dr. Lui .We would also like to thank all of mom's friends and family.

COHEN - Max, March 6, 1923 - December 2, 2008. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our remarkable Dad, Max Cohen, at the Victoria Hospital in Winnipeg, at the age of 85. Dad was predeceased by the love of his life for over 40 years, his devoted wife Marj. He was also predeceased by his father Louis David Cohen, who he idolized, his cherished mother, Ethel Cohen, and brother Art and extended family members. He is survived by his two adoring daughters and and spouses, Marsha Share (nee Cohen) (Ridley Thompson) of Winnipeg and Neta Bourlas (Y'air) of California. Also surviving Max, as the light of his life, his grandchildren, Lee Stacy Inglin (nee Share) and husband Darren, Joshua and Erin Share and great grand-daughter Maya Share, Yarden Bourlas, Tamir Bourlas, many family in-laws and close friend Allan Isabelle. Dad was raised in an early Jewish colony in Lipton, SK and worked after school as a young child in the thriving family business, L. D. Cohen & Sons. While residing in Lipton, he voluntarily enlisted in the Royal Canadian Army serving overseas in WWII where he proudly defended his beloved country and received accommodation for his bravery in his army unit. Upon his discharge, Dad returned home to once again help run the family business. Several years later he met and married a pretty young teacher from Earl Gray, SK, Marjorie Segal, and eventually had their two daughters. Max moved his family to Regina where he became a successful self employed business man and opened up Bargain King with Marj by his side. Most important in the Cohen family was education, and Marj and Max sent their girls to Winnipeg, when they became of age, to further their education and attend University. In a few years, to be closer to their girls, Marj and Max also moved to Winnipeg and opened up another successful business, the Antique Loft. Mom and Dad were always passionate about antiques. Tragedy struck our family and Mom became ill with cancer passing away in 1989. Dad never remarried, everyone else paled beside Marj's memory. Although he resided in Winnipeg for a number of years, he returned to his roots and moved to Fort Qu'Appelle, SK. No longer able to manage living on his own, Dad moved back to Winnipeg in his last few years of his life to be with his family residing at the Sharon Home. Dad was first and foremost a family man. Being their biggest fan, he always spoke so proudly and lovingly and gushed endlessly about the accomplishments of his precious children, grandchildren and great grand-daughter and especially treasured his time with them. Dad was our hero in a more quiet way through his modesty, humility, daily interactions and constant charity with his family, friends and everybody he met. He was a "kibbitzer" and a "mensch" and his generosity, gentle manner, good nature, and kind heart were felt by everyone who knew him. His greatest legacy to his children and grandchildren were teaching them the importance of personal integrity, honour and respect and human compassion for others. He cared deeply about everyone he met and would bring comfort and support and gifts to complete strangers. All this he taught by example in the continuous way he lived his life as an advocate for others, speaking and caring for those that couldn't speak for themselves, dreaming up ways of how to make life a better place for others, and yet always putting the needs of others before his own. Dad had a wacky sense of humour and always referred to himself as a comedian, a trouble maker and as a boy scout. And indeed he was all of the above. Dad embodied all that is good, all that is right, and all that is possible and will be eternally missed but will never be forgotten. With his passing comes the end of an era that generation of parents who are all gone now, closing a memorable and wonderful legacy in our family's history. Dad, we will miss the smiles and kindness you brought into the world. This is not a good-bye because we will always remember you in our hearts and in this way you will always be with us...we love you and miss you Dad... Services were officiated by Rabbi L. Lander on Friday, Dec. 5, 2008 at the Chesed Shel Emes Chapel followed by internment at the Hebrew Sick Cemetery beside Mom. His special friend Sam Singer and other WWII Vets honoured Dad with a special Last Post tribute to his memory. The family would like to especially thank certain staff at the Sharon Home and the Victoria Hospital staff for their compassionate care and to many family and friends for their generous support and thoughtfulness during this difficult time. Pallbearers: Joshua Share, Ridley Thompson, Yair Bourlas, Tamir Bourlas, Allan Isabelle, Brian Sheldon, Joel Ostrow, Gabby Vamos and Mark Etkin.

FERGUSON - Donald Bruce, May 2, 1921 - March 3, 2001. Donald was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta to Joseph Roy and Flossie Ferguson. He was the oldest of three children. He was predeceased by his two siblings Lawrence Arkwright and Patricia Jane. Donald's father taught school and farmed in Lipton, Saskatchewan, where Donald completed his schooling. At 18, Donald went to teacher's college and taught for a year. After World War II broke out, Donald, along with his brother Lawrence, joined the forces, and both went overseas. Donald was stationed in England from 1939 - 1945. He took part of the D-Day invasion at Juno Beach and fought through Belgium, Holland and France. Lawrence, a tail-gunner in the Royal Canadian Air Force, was lost at 19 in a bombing mission over Sicily in 1941. Donald met his beloved wife, Bridget, in London in 1940. During their times of separation, she wrote him almost daily. They married in London August 18, 1945. At the end of the war, the couple moved to Saskatoon, where Donald began his education in earnest, eventually earning Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education degrees - both during a three year period. Their first child Darryl was born in 1948 while Donald was still in university. After graduation, Donald taught in Brock, Saskatchewan. His only daughter Michelle Florence was born the next year, but sadly died shortly after. During his summer vacation, Donald worked as a lay preacher in Loon Lake, but decided to remain with teaching. Moving to Assiniboia, Saskatchewan in 1952, Donald became the principal of the high school, a position he held until 1959. In 1955, their last child Derek was born and, same year, Donald and Bridget took in three foster children, David, Freddy and Mary, who lived with the family for several years. In the fall of 1959, Donald became the superintendent of schools for the Eastend District, a position that he enjoyed and held until 1964. At that time, the family moved to Weyburn, Saskatchewan, where he became that district's superintendent. In 1967, Donald was promoted to Regional Director of Education for the Province of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. He received the Administrator of the Year Award in 1979. Over the next two decades, Donald and Bridget became grandparents to Lyndsey, Taryn, Jess-Roy, Jan-Leigh and Josh-Wade. In 1979, Donald retired. Six years later, in 1985, he and Bridget moved to Ontario, ultimately settling in Thornbury on the Georgian Bay. When the boys were young, the family enjoyed traveling and spent many happy summers in California. In their retirement years, Donald and Bridget continued to travel extensively with Hawaii being their favorite destination. A very social man, Donald led coffee klatches in every community he lived. In his later years, he and Bridget spent many hours driving through the beautiful countryside surrounding the Georgian Bay and dining in some of the area's delightful restaurants. But it didn't really matter what Donald was doing, so long as he was with Bridget. And the same was true for her. As long as they were together, they were happy. They were best friends. They were inseparable. Their life together was a true love story. Donald died suddenly March 3, 2001 at the Ottawa Civic Hospital after a short illness at age 79. He is survived by his loving wife Bridget; sons Darryl and Derek; daughter-in-laws Lesley and Anne; and grandchildren Lyndsey, Taryn, Jan-Leigh and Josh-Wade.

Dorothy resided on the family farm in Lipton until 1991, at which time for health reasons, she became a resident at Echo Lodge in Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan.

FISHER - Rev. Kenneth V. Fisher (April 4, 1916 - November 19, 2011). God loaned us Ken for 95 wonderful years and now he is back with the Lord he loved. Ken grew up on a farm near Lipton with his brother Philip and parents Caleb and Grace Fisher. Ken taught for eight years in country schools in Ogema, Southey, Quill Lake and Creelman. While he was principal in Creelman, he met and married one of his fellow teachers, Evangeline McDowell. They were a great team for 63 years! Ken entered the ministry and served in Hanley, Eastend, Mossbank, and Kamsack. In 1983 the United Church granted Ken an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree for distinguished service as a rural minister. His greatest joy was sharing God's love. Ken had a keen mind, a delightful sense of humour and an insatiable curiosity. His life-long love of learning began with correspondence courses on the farm, a dictionary and Bible at the kitchen table and continued with discovering the internet in his nineties. Ken was a devoted husband, exemplified by his daily visits to Evangeline in the Santa Maria Nursing Home for the last two years of her life. We were touched by how many said "To know him was to love him". Left to cherish his memory are: Douglas (Karine) Fisher; Brian (Katherine) and Michael Fisher; Carol (Merv) Hepting and their children Dana, Steven (Camille), and David. Ken was grateful for the excellent care he received from Dr. M. Cameron, Dr. C. Johnson, and Dr. A. Kilmury. We were touched by the kindness and support of the Palliative Care team as well as the staff of Broadway Terrace, Pasqua 3A and Grace Hospice. Celebration of Ken's life will take place November 22, 10:00 am, Victoria Avenue Funeral Home, 2080 Victoria Ave. East with Pastor Lois Knudson Munholland officiating.

Also, 13 great nieces and nephews as well as many other friends and relatives. Marie was born in Lipton in 1947 and was the second eldest of eight children. She was raised on a farm and truly loved the rural life. She attended Headlands country school, later Lipton School and graduated high school in 1966. She was active in 4-H, Glee Club and participated very successfully in many singing talent competitions. She sought out a summer job with SaskPower in Regina and returned to work for them permanently after high school. She had a lengthy career with SaskPower and SaskEnergy and retired with 35 years of service. After retirement she worked part-time with Weyburn and Area Supportive Employment Services and was involved with Weyburn and Area Council of Drug Abuse. Marie’s priority was her family. Her children meant the absolute most to her and she was so proud to see them to adulthood and for them to continue on in achieving successful careers. Marie was the matriarch of her family and was always arranging and hosting gatherings for family birthdays, anniversaries, and Christmas suppers. She was consistent in remembering family and friends special occasions and would labor over finding the perfect gift for those events. She had a deep connection with her nieces and nephews. She was dedicated to her parents and Ken’s parents and throughout the years continued to return to their homes to lend a hand with yard work, painting or just visiting. When her parent’s health declined in their later years, she went above and beyond to take charge of their care striving to balance her family, her career and their numerous doctor appointments and hospitalization. She was passionate and compassionate over social issues of those less fortunate and would not hesitate to take a stand and speak up. In her last year at SaskEnergy she became aware of the Saskatchewan Breast Cancer Study. She volunteered time and office space to assist the team in collecting data from Saskatchewan women across the province. The organization aimed at recruiting 100,000 women throughout the province to take part in a computer questionnaire to find commonalities about their lifestyle and environment that could be linked to breast cancer. In an ironic twist of fate, she herself was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer just months after her retirement. She underwent a mastectomy and began chemotherapy. She said. "I have two choices; be a victim or be a fighter", and fight she did. It was that fighting spirit that led her to continue work on the Sask Breast Cancer Study. And, she did win the battle with cancer for a while and remained cancer free for 6 years. Sadly in 2008 the cancer had metastasised into her bones. Again, she steeled herself and fought the fight, never letting it break her spirit and her motto was; “it is, what it is”. She was a volunteer and an advocate for the Relay for Life. She also served as a board member of the Weyburn Cancer Society. She delighted at becoming a grandmother and that truly was the highlight of her remaining life. In 2010 she pursued a lifelong dream to go to Europe and visit her grandparent’s origins in both Switzerland and England. With two of her siblings in tow, she did visit those places and met numerous cousins and delighted in finding new ones. She was filled with excitement and joy making stops in Greece, Italy, and Paris, France. Many times over the last couple of years she reflected again and again about the enjoyment of this trip. Marie was an extremely creative person and had both flare and passion for her decorating, style and design. Her creativity and style could be seen in her personal presentation and throughout her home and garden. She would work on projects until the wee hours of the morning in seeking perfection. Marie can also best be known for her sense of humor and being a bit of a prankster. She loved to laugh and had no inhibitions of dressing in some crazy garb to get a laugh out of others. She always had a bold spirit and fierce determination and it was that determination that carried her through her declining health. In the last year and a half of her life she was faced with new health challenges and her fighting spirit remained until the end. In her last few days with her children, her husband and her siblings around her, she continued to remain in good spirits and her sense of humor shone through. She was loved, cherished and will never be forgotten by all of those who knew and loved her. A Celebration of Marie’s Life was held on Thursday, December 6 at 7:30 PM from the Calvary Baptist Church, Weyburn and a funeral service was held on Friday, December 7 at 11:00 AM from St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church, Weyburn with Fr. Rick Krofchek and Pastor Doug Loden officiating. A private family interment took place at a later date in Lipton. Pallbearers were: Brendan Roberts, Kent Huber, Ryan Huber, Arron Huber, Paul Michelson and Grant Michelson.

MORRIS - Margaret Mary (nee Clement) of Welland, calmly passed away in her 99th year at the United Mennonite Home in Vineland on 5 March 2007. Nana is remembered with fondness and understanding by grand-daughter, Kimberly of Toronto and grandson, Rick of Calgary, and by son, Ralph and daughter-in-law, Carole of Fenwick. She was predeceased by her second son, David; her older sister, Lillian Clement; and her husband Stan. Margaret was born on November 15, 1908. Early memories were of a farm near Lipton, Saskatchewan, and of visits to their home by members of the Sioux Nation from the nearby Qu'Appelle Reservation. Her memories included the hail, wind and dust of the dirty thirties, but also the summer flowers of Saskatoon and winter sunrises viewed from their Milroy apartment home. Margaret married Stanley Thomas in 1937 at Lipton, Saskatchewan where Stan held a teaching position. The early 1940s were war years and Margaret moved with her flight-instructor husband and two sons to homes in Rivers, Saskatoon and Winnipeg. She served for many years as the organist of Presbyterian congregations in North Battleford and Saskatoon, and was the longest serving organist at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Saskatoon. She continued her interest in music after moving to Welland in 1999 following the death of Stan. She enjoyed entertaining the residents of St. Charles Village, a rest and retirement home in Welland, with her organ and piano playing, and with her illustrated talks of trips taken around the world. Margaret lived a life of courage and never quite recovered we think from the accidental death in 1960 of her youngest son, David Clement Morris. A poem, selected by her well before her death, reads: Afraid of what? To feel the spirit's glad release, To pass from rain to perfect peace, The strife and strain of life to cease. Afraid to see the Saviour's face, To hear His welcome, and to trace, The glory gleams of wounds of grace, Afraid of that? A Memorial Service will be held from St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Saskatoon at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 17, 2007. Our family wishes to acknowledge with grateful thanks the compassionate care and understanding of all staff members at the United Mennonite Home that helped with her care.
