ANDERSON: Muriel Ruth. Muriel, in her 90th year, passed away peacefully on April 9, 2021 at Bren Del Win Lodge, Deloraine, Manitoba. She will be fondly remembered by her daughter Debbie (Blair), son Ally, daughter-in-law Carolyn, grandsons Chad and Brad, and numerous nieces and nephews. Muriel was predeceased by her dear husband Tom, son Wayne, daughter Deane, grandson Tommy, and granddaughter Jennifer. Muriel was born in Shoal Lake, MB, the youngest of a very large family, and spent her entire youth there. She and Tom married in 1950. They lived in Shoal Lake, Hamiota, Headingley, and Alexander, before settling in Virden in 1967. She was a devoted wife and wonderful mother to 4 children. She was the best baker ever!! She and Tom enjoyed having their grandsons for summer vacations and many great memories were made. Mom always treasured her friendships the most and after Dad's passing and her failing health, she moved to a care home in Deloraine, but she never forgot her dear friends from Virden. She will be deeply missed by many. As per Mom's wishes, there will be no service at this time. The family would like to thank the staff at Bren Del Win Lodge for the care and compassion they showed Mom in the last few months. If you wish to make a donation in Muriel's name, please do so to a local charity of your choice.

ANDERSON: Edith Anderson (Kshywieski), May 2, 1936-March 26, 2021. A light that shone through many lives, (Adeline) Edith Anderson left us March 26, 2021. Our Mom was a beautiful person; full of love, generosity of spirit and grace. A loving wife and mother, Edith and George guided and raised their children, Cheryl and Shannon, farming in the Green Bluff district in Strathclair municipality. Through the years she was always part of our daily lives, even though distance separated us, leaving us with memories of times shared and our many conversations. Edith was truly a special and spirited lady who loved others openly and always took an interest in everyone she met. She cared for and participated in her community and gave gladly to help support whatever was needed. She did this not out of obligation, but because of who she was. We encouraged her to move closer to one of us after Dad passed away, but she always felt that Strathclair was her "home". That is where she wanted to be. Her career as a hairdresser spanned many years. She certified before she got married and then upgraded once her kids left home. Her compassion shone brightly as she took her hairdressing business mobile to homes of the elderly and to the hair salon at the care home in Shoal Lake. Mom's home was her pride and joy. She worked hard (understatement) and we always referred to her as the "ever ready bunny" and kidded over the years that she needed a head lamp when tending to her garden in the dark because there weren't enough hours in the day. She was an exceptional cook and had a talent and passion for baking. Many were the recipients of her treats. The freezer(s) were always full. Put a puzzle in front of her and she took up the challenge! She was a dedicated curling fan and loved to follow the athletic exploits of the whole extended family. She bragged a lot about and loved her "granddog Finn". She was active and social. She was usually up for an "adventure" and always said yes to ice cream. Edith was challenged over the last number of years with medical issues. She would say she either had a "good day" or "not so good". She never dwelled on it and for her it was "just her journey". It would be wrong to say that Edith lost her most recent battle with cancer, as she never stopped fighting. She had a deep faith which she always said kept her going. Edith's family would like to thank Dr. D Onyshko for his care and guidance over the years. A huge thank you to the homecare girls who helped Mom, and were an important part of her being able to stay in her home. Sincere thanks to the remarkable, compassionate nurses, doctors and staff at the Minnedosa Hospital for making Mom's final stay as comfortable as possible. Pre-deceased by husband George (53 years married); parents Anne (Dudar) and Anthony Kshywieski; siblings Shirley (Halabiski) and Edward (Kshywieski), brothers and sisters-in-law Bev (Geekie), Boyd (Halls), Nestor (Halabiski), Betty (Kshywieski), Delmar (Cramer), Margaret (Cornborough), Jean (Paget) and niece Lisa (Anderson-MacDonald). Edith is survived by her daughters Cheryl (Colin), Shannon (Willie), sisters Pat/Jim (Penner) and Helen (Halls); sisters and brothers-in-law Lois and Bob (Anderson), Bill (Geekie), Ruth (Cramer), much loved nieces and nephews, extended family and many cherished, supportive friends.

"No one else held us so tight or made us feel so right.
No one's eyes
shone so bright with love,
as those of our Mom,
who now has her wings.
Her smile will shine on us and her strength and love live on in us".

A private family service will be held at this time; a memorial gathering will take place later this year. Condolences may be expressed at The family requests no flowers at this time. If so desired, donations in Edith's memory can be made to: Strathclair Community Centre, CancerCare Manitoba and Minnedosa Health Centre Palliative Care Rae's Funeral Service in care of arrangements.
