Anne Maria Schroeder (nee Josten)

On April 13 2023 at Betel Home, Anne slipped quietly away at 94 years. 

She leaves behind daughter Monika Beatty and son Jeffrey Schroeder along with his wife Lydia Holt-Schroeder to celebrate her long life well lived.  She also is survived by her granddaughter Carly Beatty (Shawn), grandchildren Brittany Holt (Brian), and Justin Holt (Raychel) (great grandchildren Rio and Maverick), together with family and friends in Germany and Minnesota, predeceased by two brothers and a sister.

Born in Dinslaken, Germany October 26 1928, she survived and conquered many challenges over the years.  Anne married Rudi (died Sep/1998) and subsequently they, along with their young daughter Monika, left for an ocean voyage to Canada in Apr/1955, arriving by train from Quebec City in what would be their home in Winnipeg.  She knew no English and had no family or friends in the new land.  After many years in Winnipeg, she later moved and loved living at her home on Netley Creek in Petersfield where she spent many hours in her yard and garden.

Anne was a creative soul and always one to lend a hand.  She loved nature and wrote many poems about its beauty.  She knit, crocheted, and collected many things, most notably dolls of which she had thousands over the years. She created all manner of accessories for her beloved dolls and they were a source of pride and joy to her, and she enjoyed exhibiting them on a few occasions.

Anne always had a great love of children and they instinctively could feel that and were also drawn to her.  She had many stories to tell them and songs to sing.  One of her most loved jobs over the years was in housekeeping on the maternity ward of Misericordia Hospital where she received an award for her caring work.  Of course for mom, the bonus was being with all those babies!  On one of her many casino bus trips down to Mahnomen, MN she collected money for and donated it to their Boys and Girls Club.

Cremation has taken place and honouring her wishes there will be no service. She would say take a walk in the beautiful natural world and remember me there.   Should anyone wish to make donations in her name, please consider one that supports children or nature. We would also like to thank the staff of the Betel Personal Care Home for their care, support and compassion during the time our mom resided there. We also thank Kim, the companion visitor, who brightened up mom’s life these past months.

Beverley Anne Bell

December 4, 1935 – June 9, 2022

It is with profound sadness that the family of Beverly Anne Bell (nee Baker) announces her passing on June 9, 2022 at age 86 at Selkirk General Hospital. 

Left to cherish her memory are sons Bruce (Vincenza), Brian (Beth), Bradley (Theresa), her grandchildren Nigel, Sergio (Jasmine), Francesca, Andrea, David (Sara), Erica, great granddaughter Bridget and her cat Calli.  She will also be sadly missed by sister Joan Baker, special niece Debbie Taylor, nephew David Baker, Ruth Bell and many other extended family members across Canada. 

Bev was predeceased by her husband Norman, Mother Margaret and Father Leonard.

Bev grew up in Vista Manitoba and then moved to Winnipeg as a teenager, started her family with Norman in North Kildonan and finally settled in Selkirk, Manitoba. She stayed home with her beloved sons and then started a career with the Province of Manitoba where she retired.  She was a dedicated church member of Christ Church Selkirk and leaves many friends in Selkirk to mourn her.  Bev was an amazing baker and cooked and baked for many church and family events.  Her family will sadly miss her shortbread, sour cream coffee cake, molasses cookies, meat pies and her legendary pumpkin pie.  She was a very generous donor to many charities and loved to travel. 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Winnipeg Pet Rescue Centre 3062 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3K 0Y1 or Candace House 183 Kennedy Street #1B, Winnipeg, MB R3C 1S6.

A memorial service to celebrate Bev’s life will be held Tuesday June 28, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. in Christ Church 227 McLean Avenue, Selkirk, MB R1A 0T7.  Masks are required and a light lunch will follow.

Heather Anne Cador

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mom, Heather Anne Cador, on February 18, 2022 in Winnipeg, MB.

Heather was born in Ocean Falls, B.C. on September 9, 1949. She leaves behind to mourn her three children, Desiree (Jay), Ryan (Dee), Tyler (Jolene), and three grandchildren Hayley, Brayden, and Alyssa. She will also be missed by her sister Charlotte (John), her brother Robert as well as other family and friends.

Heather was multi-skilled and passed those skills to her children. She was especially happy when she was coaching baseball. Heather was well known and respected in both the baseball and hockey community. She loved the underdog and was always able to see the good in people, even when they struggled to see it for themselves.

Her greatest joy in life was being a mother, and a grandmother, and all the fond experiences she had of being both. For this, she will be greatly missed.

Out of respect to her wishes, there will be no funeral.

Rest in peace mom. You’re no longer in pain. We love you.
