BRANGET, Louis Charles
Passed away peacefully on Wednesday October 31, 2007 at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie in his 53rd year. He dearly loved his children Crystal, Echo, Nikki, Ernest and Minno and grandchildren Kristen, Cole, Isaiah and Alexandra who all live in British Columbia. Louis was the 5th of 15 children born to Joan BRANGET and the late Ernest BRANGET. He was predeceased by brothers George and John, and sister Mary. Surviving siblings are Diane (McKAY,) Bruce, Raymond, Daniel, Susan (BAZANT), Armand "Joe", Gerald, Joan (STROUD,) Pamela (PIERCE,) Margaret (BARRETTE) and Michael. Louis spent most of his life searching for relief from debilitating emotional and physical pain. He coped by labouring long hours with very little sleep while he did the work of two or three men always in physically demanding situations. He loved a challenge and was happiest doing demolition and salvage work that other contractors would not even bid on. He was always creating something functional or decorative from items that others had discarded. A skilled taxidermist, Louis also enjoyed cooking, fishing, gardening, music, and a good laugh. He loved nature and preferred to live outdoors where he felt closest to God. Louis lived his last year in the care of his sister Diane and her husband Brian who saw that his complex health issues were correctly diagnosed and treated. When he was not in hospital undergoing chemo, radiation or surgery treatments for cancer, Louis could be found riding around Creemore on his homemade scooter or his high-tech electric wheelchair. He enjoyed spending time down at the Mad River checking out potential fishing spots and he rarely missed a yard sale. Louis often commented that he wanted to spend the rest of his life in Creemore as it was the happiest and most peaceful period of his life. It was his wish that his ashes be interred at the Creemore Union Cemetery during a private memorial service in the summer of 2008 when all his children can be present. Those who wish to remember Louis in a special way are asked to make a donation to the Creemore Tree Committee, Box 2073, Creemore, Ontario L0M 1G0.

In 1932, she completed Grade 12 and worked diligently at various jobs for six years to finance her university education.

She went on to complete an M.A. in Public Health at the University of Michigan and returned to Saskatchewan as the first provincial nutritionist, a post she held for several years. Jean married Arthur WENHARDT in 1951 and their children Lorna, Wesley and Murray were all born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. The family relocated to Saskatoon in 1961. She was predeceased by her husband Arthur in 1988 and Jean moved to Victoria in 2003. Jean's connections to people were vital and her relationships dear. Her first love was family and Friends who brought great joy throughout her long and energetic life. Jean had many interests: gardening, camping, travelling the world, genealogy, promoting nutrition, language and lifelong learning. Left to carry on her spirit are her three children: Lorna (Gibson) Victoria, Wesley (Paula) Vancouver, and Murray (Venice) Toronto and her five adored grandchildren: Matthew PIERCE of Brisbane, Australia, Daniel PIERCE (Alison BAILLIE) of Vancouver, Robin PIERCE (David SPICER) of Auch, France, and Ella Jean and Brynn Helena WENHARDT of Toronto.
