Snowmobile rally season is coming up - The Battlefords News-OptimistTuesday, January 24, 2017
Brendan Hodge and daughter Mary in Houston. She drove to Saskatoon, flew to Calgary, Vancouver and then Prince George where they picked her up on their way home from a ringette tournament in Quesnel.
The funeral for Eugenie Swayze of Saskatoon, mother of Pearl Hawkins of Meota, was held the day of the blizzard, Jan. 11, so several folks from Meota were on the road that day. Driving conditions were terrible. Also out in the blizzard was the Scorgie family who were picking up their daughter at the airport, as she returned from Australia. The 17-year-old girl that died in the accident that day west of Shellbrook, was a niece of Judy Slavinski of Saskatoon, formerly of Chitek Lake. Judy and her daughters attended her funeral in Prince Albert.
Gladys Lehman is still in hospital. Bernice Beatch has transferred to River Heights Lodge from Harwood Manor.
We’re glad to learn of roadwork to be done in the village this summer. Birch Street by the golf course is to be rebuilt and resurfaced and First Street West and Second Avenue West are to receive sand sealing.
Five tables of canasta were played at the Do Drop In on Friday, Jan. 14. Top score was by Cora Christiansen and Gail Hilderman. Second high were Barbara Soloninko and Marion Ottas and third were Charles Walker and Lorna Pearson. All enjoyed the social period at the end of the evening over coffee and goodies.
My neighbours, Lefa Sproxton and Vernon Burghardt, are wintering in Osoyoos, B.C. and are finding the winter there colder than usual. They are staying between the two lakes so if the wind blows either direction, it blows cold off the lake. On Dec. 31 they accompanied a local group who were doing their annual bird count and were surprised to see bluebirds, cedar waxwings, goldfinches and even a robin. The tour guide was a young, female biologist who was knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. On a hike up the mountain they saw a coyote and a deer. Lefa is keeping active, as we know she likes to be.
The monthly meeting of the seniors was held Jan. 13 with president Eric Callbeck in the chair. A new snow shovel has been purchased as well as six new chairs and a couple tables are on order.
The library report for January was read, describing a new program of activities “Winter Games” running until Feb. 28. If your child is interested, call Debbie at the library for details.
The Christmas decorations were taken down and packed away and it was agreed that clea...

DAWSON - Alexandra (Sandra) - Yorkton This Week Friday, October 28, 2016
George! Sandra's first teaching job was in Surrey, BC. She and George then moved to Northern B.C., and various places in Ontario before moving back to BC around 1974, and settled in Quesnel until 1984. Sandra resumed her schooling in 1985 and obtained her Master's Degree in Educational Psychology specializing in special needs children. Sandra was a dedicated teacher, and instilled a love of learning in everyone she met. She and George bought an acreage in Ebenezer, SK in 1988, where they spent their summers, and later lived permanently, sometimes spending winters in New Westminster, BC. She stayed busy with church activities, reading, gardening, entertaining her friends, and volunteering with Soup Haven. She cherished the spring she went on a mission to Mexico with her friends from Prairie Harvest Church. Sandra never really retired. Even after her formal teaching days ended, she taught ESL and tutored many children, including her grandchildren. After George died, she spent time in Halifax and Yorkton, and spent her final year living close to her daughter Suzanne in Ottawa. Her last summer was spent with her daughters and all of her grandchildren. She always enjoyed good mental and physical health and was very independent, and her passing was sudden and peaceful. She will be missed by so many, and leaves a legacy of strength, kindness, generosity and love.

Nanaimo remembers educator, activist and elder 'Auntie Ellen' - Nanaimo News BulletinWednesday, March 27, 2019
Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre.
White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate."
She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program.
"She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday.
White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre.
"I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity."
Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
