FEB. 5, 1929-MAY 26, 2002
After a brave fight against cancer Mauro Martinelli passed away suddenly at 8:45 a.m., May 26th, 2002.
He was predeceased by his parents and survived by his sister Giovanna (husband Paolo), two nephews, one niece and extended family in Italy.
He will be sadly missed by his soulmate and best friend Dianna and her children Sandra (Jason), Scott, (Brenda and son Ryan), his family, and his dear friends.
Mauro was born in Florence, Italy and came to Canada in his early 20's. He was passionate about gardening, music, the outdoors and cooking. He was true to his roots, a renaissance man.
Dedicated and hardworking, he translated his passion for food and wine into a very successful career in the hotel industry.
In his later years he enjoyed traveling and spent many happy times with Dianna in Florida.
A celebration of Mauro's life took place Wednesday, May 29, 2002 at 11:00 a.m. at 984 Portage Avenue, Aubrey Street entrance.

NOVEMBER 9, 1936-MAY 24, 2002
Suddenly on Friday, May 24, 2002, after a lengthy illness, Peter Buchan died in his sixty-sixth year. Beloved husband of Norma, dear father of Laura (Peter Ward) and P.J., and proud "Pukka" of Nolan and Elise. Predeceased by his mother Sadie his father Pete and his brother Walter, he is also survived by his brother Sandy (Vanesa) and sister-in-law Lee. Peter also leaves to mourn his extended family; Shirley and Larry Infanti, Elinor Ableson, Bill Ableson and Sharon Bartlet and many nieces and nephews.
Peter was born in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario and studied in England before completing his B.Sc. and B.Ed. degrees at the University of Manitoba. He and Norma cherished the friendships they made during this time early in their marriage - friendships that continue to this day. A one-year contract to teach in Winnipeg became a 26 year teaching career with Seven Oaks School Division - primarily in Music, but with a few years teaching Math and Science. Peter's love of music was reflected not only in his class work, but also in his extra-curricular involvement; school musicals, band trips, school choirs. Peter was an outstanding teacher who had a unique way of communicating with young people. He built strong relationships with his students and counted many among his friends long after they left his classroom.
Peter's musical career was long and varied. He sang with the Henry Engbrecht Singers and the Neil Harris Singers, preformed at Rainbow Stage and the Hollow Mug for many years. He was tenor soloist at Knox United Church for 20 years. Peter also left his mark as a choral director - some of the groups that enjoyed and benefited from his humour, encouragement and talent include the Caledonian Singers, Voices WEST, the Sweet Adelines, the Golden Chordsmen, the For Pete's Sake Singers, the chorus at Rainbow Stage and the St. James Presbyterian Church Choir. Peter's Solo work will be remembered by many - his church work, his profound Scottish repertoire and his more humourous material ("Have some Maderia, m'dear") and patter songs.
Peter was very proud of his Scottish heritage. He was a founding board member if the Scottish Association of Winnipeg and worked tirelessly for the Pavilion of Scotland for many years - developing and directing the shows, building stages and sets, setting up, tearing down - no job too small (or too dirty). He also traveled to Scotland many times - first with Norma, later as a family and, finally, a much-enjoyed trip last summer with his son P.J.
As Peter's health problems limited his ability to walk and cycle, he turned more to driving trips with Norma around Manitoba and beyond. He applied his energy to more sedentary activities - acrostic puzzles, reading, creating beautiful needlepoint pieces that will remain as family treasures, going for coffee with the many friends who helped him through this difficult period of his life and, importantly, working hard at "fixing stuff" for his grandson (especially the ever-popular black train).
While we are relived that he no longer has to endure the pain and limitations that were increasingly with him over the last few years, his death leaves a large hole in many lives and he will be sincerely missed.
A celebration of Peter's life and music was held at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 28, 2002 at Knox United Church, 400 Edmonton Street, the Reverend M. Beth McCutcheon officiating. The family invites any singers wishing to participate in the choir to be at the church at 2:45 p.m. for a rehearsal.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Kildonan Cemetery Fund (c/o The Treasurer, The Presbytery of Winnipeg, 294 Olive St., Winnipeg, Mb., R3J 2X4) or a charity of your choice.

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of Allan Heselwood on Friday, May 24, at the Maples Personal Care Home.
Left to remember him are his sister Lorraine Comack (Bunty), brother-in-law Jack Hartel; nieces and nephews Gail (Randy), Gary (Susan), Colleen (Louis), Valerie, Jeff (Robin), Jim (Diane), Jerry (Pat), Jack (Melissa), and numerous great nieces and nephews.
Uncle Allan was born in Headingly, MB. on December 18, 1924. He lived in Winnipeg for most of his youth. He was employed for 14 years by National Grain.
He began his love of church work as a volunteer at Knox United. He worked with boys groups and enjoyed his involvement in the Junior Boys' Parliament. He particularly enjoyed his 30 years in Scouting.
He was granted the title of a Diaconal Minister in 1965 by the Newfoundland conference and served as a minister in many provinces across Canada.
Uncle Allan took a great interest in the lives of his nieces and nephews. He was always there with great ideas and fabulous "stuff". We will be forever grateful for our memories of him.
He was predeceased by his father, James, mother Elsie, sister Joyce, stepfather Jack and brother-in-law John.
A memorial service was held on Tuesday, May 28th at 2:00 p.m. at Meadowood United Church. Rev Linda Churchill and Rev. David Murata (Knox Church) will officiate at the service.
Donations can be sent to Meadowood United Church, 1111 Dakota St, Wpg. R2N 3T7.

(1917 - 2002)
Peacefully, after a lengthy illness, with his family by his side, Bennie passed away Friday, May 24, 2002, at the age of 85.
Bennie was an honourable and compassionate man who had a kind word and helping hand for all those he met. His delightful sense of humour and caring nature endeared him to those who knew him.
Bennie will be lovingly remembered by Louise, his beloved wife of 58 years and their children, Denis (Moira), Lou-Anne (Ken) Buhr, Diane MacLellan, Janey Homeniuk (Garry Doney), Evelyn (Glen) Lenchuk and Jacquie (Eric) Crone; and their grandchildren, Carolyn (Brian), Jamie, Kevin (Tracey), Kristin (Dan), Stephen (Ange), Michael (Sonya) and Dan (Fiona); and Bennie's sister Simone (Walter) Rudnicki and relatives, including Louise's family, as well as many friends and colleagues. He was predeceased by his parents, his brother Emery; sisters, Denise and Meline; and son-in-law Ray Homeniuk.
Bennie was born on March 21, 1917 and grew up in St. Boniface, MB. As a boy, he helped his father in the family coal and lumber business and when he lost his father at the age of 9, he became a stong support to his family, especially his baby sister Simone. In his teens, he became a motorcycle enthusiast, winning countless racing trophies and awards and was quite the dashing young man! On April 12, 1944, in the St. Boniface Cathedral, Bennie married Louise Chale who became his life-long companion and sweetheart and they subsequently started their family. Bennie's life revolved around his wife and family and they loved him dearly in return.
Having enlisted in the RCAF at the age of 16, Bennie remained with the Forces for almost 30 years. He was a war veteran, proudly serving his country in the Second World War as an aircraft mechanic and in the Korean airlift as a flight engineer. Bennie, along with his wife and growing family, enjoyed Air Force postings in Rivers, MB, Namao (Edmonton), Rockcliffe (Ottawa) and Winnipeg. In 1962, he retired from the Service having earned his Commission and the rank of Flight Lieutenant and completed a term with the 402 Squadron.
With a family to support, Bennie immediately accepted a position with Standard Aero Engine where he worked with the engineering staff as well as the men "on the floor", earning the respect and admiration of all.
After 16 years with Standard Aero, he retired in 1984 and he and Louise had more time to enjoy each other and their grown kids and grandkids at home and at the cottage at Whytewold Beach. Bennie especially enjoyed visiting old friends at home, the cottage and the Air Force Mess and in later years the weekly lunches with Louise's siblings and their spouses.
While the family is relieved that his struggle is over and he is at peace with his Lord, we will miss our dear Bennie. We wish to extend our apprecitaion to the staff at the Deer Lodge and Grace hospitals and our special thanks to the staff, home care team and many friends at the Metropolitan Kiwanis Courts on Ness Ave. for their compassionate care and loving support of Bennie during the last two years of his life.
A funeral servie in celebration of Bennie's life will be held Thursday, May 30 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Paul the Apostle Church, 2400 Portage Ave., Winnipeg, MB. A reception will follow in the lower hall of the church.
