Craig was born on April 11, 1954 in Regina and raised on Duncairn farm north of Regina. His love for the cattle industry began at an early age. The third word he learned to speak after "moma" and "dada" was "cow". He was involved in 4-H throughout his youth and started taking purebred Shorthorns to shows in his early teens, a practice he continued throughout his life. Craig started school at Sterling - a one-room school a half-mile from his home. He graduated from Luther College in 1972 and U of S Voc Ag in 1975. Craig was a competitive curler in high school and a recreational curler and avid fan all his life. Craig started his Paragon herd and moved to Qu'Appelle in 1976 where his son Matthew was born. Craig became involved in various livestock and community organizations, including Saskatchewan and Canadian Shorthorn Associations, Saskatchewan Livestock Centre, Canadian Western Agribition, Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association and the Qu 'Appelle & District Lions Club. 1985 saw Marg and Craig purchase and develop their current home and cattle operation in the McLean, Qu’Appelle area (NE 29-18-15 W2). Ever an entrepreneur, Craig tackled many endeavours, the latest being Second Time Office Equipment. Severely tasked by his death, we grieve, but also feel blessed and rejoice in remembering and honouring his life. The family would also like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to all those who have supported us through the 17 months since Craig's diagnosis and especially the last two very difficult days of his life. We are truly grateful for your help. A special thank you to Lani Antoine, RN, Indian Head EMS, Dr. S. Bester, Dr. S. McMillan, Dr. Zarcovick; and the chemotherapy team at Alan Blair Cancer Centre for their care.
– Joseph William. On June 25, 1989, Joseph William Ashworth passed away peacefully at Echo Lodge, Fort Qu'Appelle. Joseph was born and raised in McLean, the youngest son of Joseph and Bertha (Massey) Ashworth and brother of Clarence. Joseph received his education
in McLean. He met his lifetime mate, Mabel Kathryn Bowie when she came to McLean as a school teacher. They were married May 24th, 1939. As a youth, Joseph was well known for his hockey and baseball talents which have been an inspiration to his grandchildren, as he never lost
interest in sports. Joseph owned and operated a farm first with his father and later with his brother. After dairy farming for years they switched to beef in 1961. Joseph also did custom trucking for many farmers. After retiring Joseph became a great help to his farming sons-in-law. Joseph was also an avid gardener - after a long hard day farming he'd still be seen working in the garden. There were always more vegetables grown than the Ashworth's required. Joseph and Mabel had three daughters: Dorothy, Joanne and Jean. They later gained three sons-in-law: Emery Schettler, Larry McGown and Larry McCullough and thus seven grandchildren: Calla, Chara and Crystal; Janaya and Gavin; Curtis and Barden. Joseph was extremely proud of his family and was always a good husband, father and grandfather. He was very talented at poem recitation which we all enjoyed. Our family time was very precious as Dad was a hard-working agricultural man. Joseph was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Bertha and his beloved wife, Mabel Kathryn on January 18, 1985. He leaves to mourn, his family: Dorothy and Emery Schettler, Calla, Chara and Crystal; Joanne and Larry McGown, Janaya and Gavin; Jean and Larry McCullough, Curtis and Barden.

Geographically she may not have moved far from having grown up on a dairy farm at McLean and then moving not so many miles away to a grain farm at Sedley, but the range of her intellect and knowledge was far reaching. A voracious reader ñ she made light work of the Encyclopedia Britannia A-Z, cover to cover ñ which no doubt contributed to her ability to complete flawlessly, in ink, the most difficult crossword puzzles and defeat all comers at Scrabble. Her cooking and sewing skills were legendary (her pies were most sought after at the local Fall Supper) and lovingly passed them along to her grandchildren. It was a privilege to know her, to call her wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. She will be missed but never forgotten. And just so there is no mistake: St. Peter, when she arrives at your Pearly Gates the code word is ìGrankyî and she above all others deserves to be admitted.

- Joseph John. In rememberance of our uncle and great uncle Joe Nessman, who was born at Avonlea, Sask. on August 5, 1908, to Joseph and Caroline (Scida) Nessman. From Avonlea the family moved to Regina, and eventually to the Qu'Appelle, McLean District. Due to Granpa Nessman's illness the family then moved to Portland Oregon, where they engaged in dairy farming and operated a small fruit orchard, plus working in a factory. After a few years in U.S.A. the family moved back to the Qu'Appelle farm, where Dad (Ted) and uncle Joe made their home. As children growing up we remember Uncle Joe's kindness and good will to
us and others. He loved his garden of vegetables and was especially fond of his flower beds. Seeding and harvest times were Uncle Joe's favorite times of the year. We remember him best on the farm picking stones with him and helping with the haying. He would make it as much fun as possible. Uncle Joe always tried to make our work more of a pleasure than a chore. In 1971, Dad (Ted) decided it was time to sell the farm as we kids were grown up and on our own. Dad found a house for Uncle Joe to live in, in Qu'Appelle where he resided for the next 12 years of his life. Again, he loved his garden and when one of us didn't, he had a basket full for us. He had a great love for animals. He had his dog, Poochy to keep him company. As far back as we can remember, Uncle Joe's love for us and our children kept him spry and happy. He enjoyed the birthday parties of our children and other family gatherings. He always had a bag of goodies for the children when he came to visit. We all miss our dear Uncle Joe since his passing on January 17, 1986.

Don passed away peacefully at Golden Prairie Home in Indian Head on Friday, September 30,2016. Don was born and raised on the farm south of McLean, SK and was the youngest of three children. Quitting school at an early age to help out on the farm, he continued working alongside his father, hauling cream to town and tending the fields. Dan's generosity was only surpassed by his love to dance. Often the first one on the dance floor, and the last one to leave! He also loved singing in the barn while milking the cows, playing fastball, hunting, and helping others whenever the opportunity arose. Don married his wife of 56 years, Dorothy, in 1960 in Regina, and started their family on the farm. In 1968 they moved to Regina where he worked as a stationary engineer, all the while continuing to spend most of his spare time, also working on the farm. Don eventually grew tired of city life and returned to the farm, which was where he always wanted to be. There he spent several years enjoying the peaceful lifestyle and his grandchildren, while grain farming, raising chickens, guinea hens, and cattle. We would like to thank Golden Prairie Home for making his last years comfortable and allowing him to continue dancing and enjoying the music he loved so much. At Don's request, a private interment with immediate family will take place later in the week.

- Paul, loving Dad and Papa to Linda (Don) Topolinsky, Terry (Debra) Oleksow, Tami (Merlin) Potschka, Tamara, Breanne, Korey, Brandon and Brooklyn passed away on November 25, 2002. Paul was born on January 04, 1927 in Paris, France. His parents immigrated to the Hazel Del area of Saskatchewan when he was 6 months old. His working career started early and included helping on the family farm, working on a trapline in the Hudson Bay forest area, working on road crews and then with the City of Regina. With an incredible work ethic and a natural ability to skillfully operate all kinds of equipment, Paul started and successfully ran Queen City Tree Service and Landscaping for almost 40 years. Many projects throughout southern Saskatchewan still bear testimony to his eye for detail and his ability to imagine and then shape his ideas into reality. Pay-loaders, graders, back-hoes were like an extension of Paul under his masterful touch. He was even flown to Arizona by a large equipment manufacturer so he could demonstrate the potential of their loaders to other customers. Regina is filled with many memorials to Paul's talent; golf courses, government buildings, churches, schools and many private homes. Paul worked hard and he loved to play hard and laugh loud. From unforgettable "Rook" games, moose-hunting expeditions, camping, ski-dooing treks, parades and antique buying experiences, he loved being with people and telling colorful stories. He also had great compassion for animals and his "rescue operations" for missing dogs will forever be one of our fondest memories. In 1954 Paul married Jenny Tataryn, a girl from back home, and they were devoted partners until her death in 1994. Their devotion to each other, through both good and hard times, was an example of a deep love that can only come from the Author of Love, our Savior Jesus Christ. Paul's love for his wife and children extended to his thoughts and desires for us all to be reunited with her someday at our victorious Lord's return.

Vina May Runge January 21, 1989 marks the passing of Mrs. Vina May Runge, late of Regina, formerly of McLean, Sask. Vina was born on a farm near Balgonie on April 27, 1908, being the eldest of seven children born to Ernest and Mary Ann Betteridge. Growing up on a farm in the Kendal district, Vina was no stranger to slopping pigs, teaching calves to drink from a pail, harnessing teams of horses, working in the fields, and caring for her younger sisters and brothers. Even though sometimes feeling she was raised as a boy, there was one aspect of farm living that she always looked forward to and loved dear1y. Threshing time! Perhaps it was the excitement of friends and neighbours working in harmony with the horses to bring the grain in from the fields, or perhaps this love of threshing time had something to do with the dancing that took place when the day's work was complete! "Someone always could play an accordian" she once told me. Vina's love of oldtime music and dance remained with her throughout her life. At the age of fifteen, Vina, began attending community dances, with her father fooling many of her friends who refused to believe that Vina's "boyfriend" was in fact her father. It was at a dance in Odessa where Vina first met Frank Runge. Vina and Frank were married on February 1, 1928. The Runges first resided on a farm in the Odessa area, before moving to a farm near Avonhurst. The move to Avonhurst not only meant moving furniture, but also
three "valuable possessions" acquired during the first years of marriage; namely, Irene, Kenneth and Donald. It was in 1944 that the Runge family purchased a half section of land south of McLean. As there was only 30 acres cultivated, much time was spent clearing land. A garage, machine shop, chicken coop, and milk house were soon erected, as the Runge family, like so many of their neighbours, became involved in dairy farming. Each morning at 8:00 am the Runges carted full milk cans into the Village of McLean to await the train which would carry the milk on to Regina. During Vina' s years in the McLean community, she became very active in church activities, and was one of the original members of the McLean Women's Club. In 1951, Vina and Frank made another move; this time to Regina. In addition to packing clothes and personal possessions, there was one additional "bundle" that was included in the move to the new house in Regina- a three year old "bundle of energy" name Wilfred. With the passing of her beloved husband in 1964, Vina continued to reside in Regina. Throughout the years that Vina lived in "the city", her love of "the country" could be seen in the flourishing houseplants and productive garden she took such pride in. Sweet-smelling Sweet Peas bordering the sidewalk and a, bouquet of Gladioli ,on the kitchen table come to 1984 mind. Vina made one final move this time to the Pioneer Village Nursing Home. Throughout Vina's life, her family meant most to her; always taking a keen interest in the lives and activities of her children, grandchildren, sisters and brother. Her courageous strength in battles with heart disorders, diabetes and cancer is an inspiration to all who knew her. There are many loves I shared with those of Mrs. Vina May Runge: The first crocuses of spring, the golden poplar leaves of autumn, twirling around a dance floor a basket full of kittens, and country living. Perhaps I've inherited these traits - Vina was my grandmother. Vina May Runge was predeceased by her husband, Frank; granddaughter, Beverly Grad; and brother Wilfred Betteridge.
