BEATTIE, Walter James Stewart  
Walter James Stewart Beattie December 1, 1916 - February 23 2015 In the presence of his wife Elva and son Cliff, on the morning of February 23 2015, Walter Beattie died peacefully in the Outlook Health Centre following a brief illness. Walter was born on Nithsdale Farm in the Anerley District on December 1, 1916. He attended Anerley School completing 11 years of education and began farming when he pitched sheaves at harvest when he was 11 years old. Walter remained a farmer all his life retiring at 75, but enjoyed a turn on the combine or driving the grain truck well into his 80s and 90s. The only break in his farming career was from November, 1942 to the Spring of 1946 when he was a Signalman in the Canadian Army serving in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, England, France, Belgium, Holland and Northern Germany. Walter married Elva Hedger from the Invicta District on October 16, 1942 and they celebrated their 72nd anniversary last year. Walter and Elva had two sons Cliff and Rod. Walter is survived by his wife Elva and sons. He is also survived by three sisters-in-law Faye Beattie, Alice Hedger and Winnie Mann. Walter is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, great- grandnieces and nephews and second great- grandnieces and nephews. Walter was predeceased by his parents Robert and Margaret (Pattie) Beattie; his brothers, Robert, John (Edna), Andrew (Violet), James, Joseph and David (Elsie) and sisters Madge (Fred) Blackwell and Elizabeth (Earl) Palmer. He was also predeceased by brothers-in-law Rowley (Violet) Hedger, Ernest Hedger, Graham (Tina) Hedger and Arthur Mann. Besides Walter's love of farming his years of service with the Canadian Army continued to play an important role in his life - serving with the Dinsmore-Wiseton branch of the Legion until its closure. Over the years he held every office including over 33 years as Secretary. Walter also served for over 25 years as an Elder in the Dinsmore United Church and Trustee in the Eston-Elrose School District. He also served for over 10 years as Cub Leader and Coach or Manager of minor hockey and baseball teams. In retirement the Dinsmore Seniors club was an important part of Walter's life - capped by being awarded a Life Membership in August last year. A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, March 2, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. in the Dinsmore United Church, followed by Burial at the Dinsmore Cemetery and a Reception in the Dinsmore Community Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Dinsmore Health Foundation would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to Floyd and Marjorie Childerhose of the Outlook Funeral Chapel 306-867-8255

BLEIER, Carolyn  
Carolyn Bleier (Winand) Applications are no longer being accepted for heaven's newest angel. The position has been filled. Carolyn Yvonne Bleier, 49, of Saskatoon, slipped from our grasp and accepted the position on February 22, 2015. Carolyn was born in Geraldton, ON, the first daughter of Wilfred and Valerie Winand. She grew up in Ontario and Northern Manitoba where her favourite activities as a young girl were going out for meals and fishing. She moved to Yorkton, SK when she was 20 and then on to Saskatoon to start her own life at the age of 22. Carolyn was a hard worker and a genuine person and was liked by all her employers and fellow employees. She enjoyed animals and loved her pets. She was very good at crafting, and her crocheted blankets and Christmas bells will be treasured as they keep us warm and remind us of her as we hang them on our Christmas trees. July 8, 2003 might have been the happiest day of her life when she married Terry Bleier. They loved hanging out, going out for coffee together, concerts and their trip to Vancouver. They had two beautiful children, Cody and Britney, who will miss trips to the rink for hockey practice and dance class, her cuddles and going to the Fun Factory. Carolyn was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and began a long battle with the disease. She fought bravely, took it day by day, and always told people when they asked, that she was doing ok. She will be joining her aunty Laurie Goodman, her father-in-law Ed Bleier and her grandparents in heaven. She leaves behind her husband and kids, mom and dad, brother Keith, sister Audra; Bob and Sharon Dushaire; brothers-in-law Darrell, Rod (Louise) and Wade (Robin), many cousins, aunts and uncles, a niece and four nephews and many dear friends. All will miss her greatly. The Funeral Service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, February 27, 2015 at the Westside Pentecostal Church (3488 Fairlight Drive) followed by the interment at the Woodlawn Cemetery. Memorial Donations to a Trust Fund for Cody and Britney Bleier in care of Wade Bleier (Box 576, Wilkie, SK S0K 4W0) would be appreciated. Arrangements in care of Lisa Ruf - Mourning Glory Funeral Services 306-978-5200. www.mourningglory.ca

Boruch, Fred (In Memoriam)  
In loving memory of Fred Boruch March 3, 1927 - June 3, 1975 Dear Dad, Happy Birthday in Heaven! Who knew 40 years ago we would have celebrated your last Birthday together? To be honest at the age of 9 I truly don't remember that day. However, I do remember many other special times with you. I remember walking the rocks with you at Turtle lake picking fishing hooks, then stopping at the store for bubble gum. Memories of you singing in church and how handsome I thought you were. Oh, and the time Mom was putting rollers in my hair and you put some in too and danced around the kitchen, oh how we laughed! I can still taste your potato soup and how just a teaspoon of vinegar in the bowl made it even yummier. Our last summer together at Poplar Beach camping... then the following summer it was all just memories. Memories I have carried in my heart for 40 years. I had you such a short time in my life, I love you and miss you always, but I miss the memories we missed making together. I missed you at my graduation, my wedding and the birth of my 2 children. I know you are always near all of us and you keep us safe. I love you Dad Forever and Always Love Theresa

BOULET, Dustin (In Memoriam)  
Dustin Boulet February 28, 1985 "LIVED" March 1, 2014 Today, we should be saying "Happy Birthday", but instead, we are expressing our lives without you. It will soon be a year since we lost you, but memories of you are ours to keep; this is how you are remembered and thought of every day... Our never ending love and forever memories of our unselfish son, brother, brother-in-law and larger than life uncle to his nieces and nephews, always his mom's baby bear, his dad's best friend and Chad's only brother. You were a true definition of a friend to so many. You always battled for the underdog, felt it was your duty to protect your friends and family. The emptiness we all feel by the loss of your larger than life presence will be forever missed. Your hugs and kisses, although many, so many of us would love one more. Many hearts were broken the day you left. At the end of our first year without you, the pain has grown and missing you increases every day. This pain felt by your lifelong friends and family was the motivation to start "The Dustin Boulet Annual Memorial Slo Pitch Tournaments" in your name. You'd be so proud of your friends' and family's first successful tournament, which raised $10,000 for KidSport. (Please see card of thanks). But you were always proud of your friends and family. Well Dustin, your friends and family were always proud of you. Forever lived and missed always, Mom, Dad, Chad, Amanda, Ysabelle, Kyle, Tyler, Hailey, Kennedy and Riley, as well as your honorary pallbearers (March 1, 2014) who will forever carry on your memory: Ray, Evan and Roy, Kalen, Buhner, Matt and Shawn. Your family is forever grateful for their love and support. Please join us for Dustin's second memorial tournament June 13 and 14, 2015, Reid Park. Further details can be found on the Dustin Boulet Memorial Foundation Facebook page, or by emailing dustinbouletmemorial@gmail.com.

BRAIDEK, Dorothy  
BRAIDEK, Dorothy Eve (nee Beckie) December 20, 1933 – February 10, 2015 Dorothy touched the lives of many people, from all walks of life. Through her deep faith, her musical talents, her many acts of service and love, she truly made the world a better place. Dorothy was born on the family farm, near Bladworth, SK, the third of seven children of Cecilia and Nicolas Beckie. She received her early education in the one room Briggs School, completed grades 9 – 11 by correspondence, and graduated in 1952 from St. Joseph's Academy in Forget, SK. In 1953, Dorothy became a novitiate with Our Lady of the Cross, a Catholic order of nuns, and pronounced her final vows in 1960. She studied music and education, obtaining her ARCT in piano in 1962 and a BEd in 1970. She was stationed in Prince Albert, Edmonton and Redvers, teaching music, school and working with young adults with Down's syndrome. In 1971, Dorothy made the decision to return to lay life, received dispensation for her religious vows, and settled in Saskatoon teaching music to numerous students. Her strong dedication to her faith continued. For many years, she played organ for St. Mary's choir and was also a parish worker. In 1983, she married Dan Braidek and showed endless love and care for him. Dorothy and Dan enjoyed many years together and their home at 9 Bateman was welcoming to all. In 2005, they moved to Columbian Manor. Throughout her life, Dorothy helped those in need, especially children, immigrant families, the sick and the elderly. Her energy and capacity to give was immense. Even at 81 years of age, she continued to play organ for daily and weekly masses (Columbian Manor, St. Michael's), funerals and weddings, and entertained at seniors' homes (Porteous Lodge, St. Anne's, Samaritan Place). In addition to music, Dorothy had a deep love of nature and would delight in reporting her sightings of the first crocuses blooming, red wing blackbirds, and her favorite, mountain bluebirds. Despite limited financial means, Dorothy supported many charities. In lieu of flowers, please give to a charity of your choice. The family thanks all who have expressed their love and appreciation of Dorothy. As our sister, auntie, step-mom and grandma, she will remain forever in our hearts. Dorothy is survived by siblings Ken (Helen), Lawrence (Margaret Ann), Vincent (Hilde), Gerald (Robin); sister-in-law Rosemary, Mary (Alan Weninger); sister-in-law Joan; step-sons Jonathan (Jessica) and Richard (Paulette) and numerous nephews, nieces and grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Dan; her parents Nick and Cecilia; brother Sam; niece Sara; nephews Gary and Frederick; brother-in-law Jack; and sisters- in-law Elsie and Elizabeth. The Vigil for Dorothy will be held on Sunday, March 8th at 7:00 p.m. and The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. Monday, March 9th at 10:30 a.m., both services will be held at St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church (211 Ave O South). A Memorial Service and Interment will take place at St. Andrew's in Kenaston, SK during the May long weekend.
