MYERS: Robert (Bob) Fraser Macintosh Myers, FRCP, passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 4, 2016, at the age of 98 years. Bob was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, on December 16, 1919 and grew up in Brandon, Manitoba. After graduating from Brandon Collegiate, Bob furthered his studies at the University of Manitoba, graduating from the Faculty of Medicine in 1941. He married Joann Elliott and, like many of his generation, spent four years overseas in World War II. He was a captain in the medical corps. Upon returning, Bob practiced medicine in Brandon, obtaining his paediatric specialty in 1959. Dad (Dr. Bob) was the first paediatrician in Manitoba outside of Winnipeg. He felt very strongly that Western Manitoba should be served by this speciality. Very service oriented, Bob served on a number of local, provincial and national community and professional organizations. He was a member of the Board of Governors of Winnipeg Children’s Hospital and a founder of the Brandon Clinic. In his “spare” time, Bob was interested in many activities, including golf, sailing and curling. The Clear Lake cottage was integral to Dad’s (Bampa’s) life and people frequently tracked him down there for his sound advice and his little black bag. Bampa’s main focus, however, was his family. He and Joann were married for 73 years and had four children, 14 grandchildren and 23 and counting great-grandchildren. He had a keen sense of humour that never deserted him, a sage wisdom, a prodigious memory, and a wide ranging knowledge - a true Renaissance man. Dad never suffered fools gladly and we all have our own special memories of him, including the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Bob was predeceased by his beloved Joann (November 2014) and never really recovered from his loss. He is survived by his children Joan Foster, Thunder Bay, ON, Barbara (Barry) Olivella, Lunenburg, NS, Bill (Lana) Myers, Brandon, MB, and Elizabeth (Scott) Duncan, Medicine Hat, AB and extended family. He was the best. A Celebration of Bob’s life will be held at Central United Church, 327-8th Street, on Saturday, February 13, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation, 150 McTavish Avenue East, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 2B3, or to a charity of choice.

Shortly after, he met Elizabeth "Betty" McMurdo from Lyleton, Manitoba. They dated, got engaged, and were married on November 26, 1949. Mom had been a nurses aide at the Brandon Mental Hospital. Together Mom and Dad had three sons: Derek, Kevin, and Darcy. In the mid 1950's, they moved to the Douglas area, where they raised their family and started farming.

JACOBSEN: Agnes Jennie, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend. It is with heavy hearts that the family of Agnes announce her passing on January 30, 2016 at the age of 96. Agnes was born on June 4, 1919 at Tait Township in the Rainy River District in Ontario. After her marriage, Fort Frances, ON was home for many years. In 1961, Agnes and her children moved to Winnipeg, MB, where she felt they would have better opportunities. In July 1969, Agnes met the man who would be the love of her life and they married on July 24, 1970. John had immigrated to Canada from Denmark in 1955, and when asked why he came to Canada, he would say that he had been looking for this special lady. In 2002, John and Agnes moved to Brandon to be closer to their daughter. In each house they lived in they cultivated beautiful gardens. They liked to square dance, lawn bowl and travel around finding new golfing adventures. When the spirit moved them they would pack up the car and go away for a few days, a favorite destination being north to Flin Flon or The Pas. Every few years they took a trip back to Denmark, and they did a bus tour of Alaska, had a Caribbean cruise, took in the lily festival in Ottawa and wintered in Arizona for a number of years. John and Agnes lived at Hobbs Manor and enjoyed the friendship of many people who also lived there. They had thirty-eight amazing years together before John passed away and life for Agnes was never quite the same. Agnes moved to Valleyview Care Centre in Brandon on June 8, 2015. She was predeceased by John in 2008 and a son Nelson in 1963. She is survived by son Gord of Gilbert, Arizona, daughters Pat of Vernon, BC and Karen (husband Don Butler) of Brandon. There are four grandchildren, Michael Josephson of San Francisco, Kristi Josephson of Surrey, Joby Bond of Burlington and Patrick O'Hara of Montreal, and four great grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Cliff Elmwood of Winnipeg and sister-in-law, Ase Raven of Denmark. At Agnes' request there will be no funeral. She will be laid to rest with her beloved John at the Brandon Cemetery at a private family service this summer. The family would like to thank her doctors throughout the years, Dr. S. Engelbrecht, Dr. Davis, Dr. Bookatz and at Valleyview, Dr. Large, and to the staff at Valleyview Care Centre, thanks for caring for, and about, Mom while she was there.
