Donald Thomas Gillespie.  Donald was born to Thomas and Isabelle Gillespie on November 10, 1928 on the farm South of Mankota.  His childhood years were spent working on the farm and attending school in Bannock. Upon completing school, Donald went to work as a ranch hand on the Johnny Watt Ranch on the Montana border.   In 1949 he married his loving wife Norah, and together they started to build their lives, their family, and their herd of cattle.  The same year Donald and Norah would go to work on a ranch South East of Val Marie for Evans McNabb.  It was here that their first three children were born; Doug in 1949, Lois in 1951, Don in 1955.  At the time they were also raising a herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle that Norah had started prior to marrying Donald.  In 1963 they completed their family with the arrival of their son, Darwin, and in 1964 they were able to purchase the ranch south of Mankota where Norah had grown up.  It’s here that they would begin building their herd of Hereford cattle.  Donald and Norah started their purebred Hereford herd in 1977.  Over the next 40 years, they would develop one of the top Hereford cow herds in Canada, thus the DONORAH prefix would become well known.  Many champions were exhibited through Mankota and Maple Creek bull sales, Interprovincial and Red Carpet female sales and other various cattle shows along the way.  Alongside raising cattle, Donald was very involved in the advancement of the cattle industry.   He was instrumental in the building and completion of Mankota Stockman’s Weigh Company where he served as manager for 30 years.  Donald was one of the first ranchers to initiate grading yearlings or calves into carload lots in order to receive better prices.   Donald has been recognized as a lifelong member of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association, where he would spend 16 years serving as a Director.

Donald and Norah were also passionate about travel.  Many of their summers were spent hooked on to their camper travelling across the country.  One of their favorite destinations was Whitehorse to spend time with Lois and her family fishing off the coast of Alaska.  In 2011 Donald and Norah moved into Swift Current to be closer to the medical care that Norah would need.  They enjoyed their last few years together playing cribbage and making trips out to Donnie Wayne’s to check on the cows.  On July 8th, 2021 Donald passed away peacefully surrounded by loving family.   Donald was predeceased by his parents Tom and Isabelle, his wife Norah Gillespie, brother Neil (Edna) Gillespie, brother-in-law Jacob Woloshchuk and granddaughter Lacy Kay Gillespie.  Donald is survived by his sister, Margaret, sons Douglas (Colleen), Don (Beverly), Darwin (Chanti), and daughter Lois (Bob Cameron), as well as seven grandsons, one granddaughter and seven great-grandchildren.

Dougald Gillespie death March 28, 1918. Burial Moose Jaw City Cemetery, SK

Douglas Bruce Gillespie death October 6, 2014 Saskatoon, SK. Douglas Bruce Gillespie was born July 18, 1953, in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. He left us on October 6, 2014, at the age of 61. Doug leaves as legacy his wife Monica, daughter Ali, son Jordan, grandchildren Ryley and Kayla, and son-in-law Aaron. He also leaves sister Karen and brother Greg and families. The consummate athlete, Doug was involved in team handball, rugby, soccer, slo-pitch, coaching Monica’s soccer teams, and, of course, his beloved golf. The consummate adventurer, Doug and Monica travelled many exotic places, beginning their life together in Africa, returning later to safari, playing rugby and coaching soccer at the World Masters in Australia, cruising in Greece, eating in Istanbul, and cycling in Italy, to name only a few. The consummate father-Dude, Doug was never happier than when he was attending or coaching one of Ali’s or Jordan’s or Ryley’s or Kayla’s activities, including attending Ryley’s football games this fall. Doug was a well-known businessman in the Regina and Saskatoon communities, building and growing his business and mentoring young entrepreneurs. He always made time to speak with young entrepreneurs. He was also a major contributor to–and volunteer of–many of Saskatoon’s major sporting events, and he was instrumental in establishing a Beads of Courage chapter in Saskatchewan. As a result of Doug’s many activities, Doug made and retained many life-long, loyal friends. This was never more evident as in the past few months, and Monica, Ali, and Jordan thank all of you for your love and support for Doug. In lieu of flowers, Doug has requested that donations be directed to Beads of Courage or to the Meewasin Valley Authority. In closing, Doug will be sorely missed by those who had the pleasure and honour to work with him in any capacity. We bid you to go gentle, Doug, but we are not resigned. The Celebration of Doug’s Life was  held at Circle Drive Alliance Church (3035 Preston Ave. South) on Friday, October 10, 2014 at 1 p.m. Arrangements in care of Cheryl Carlson -Mourning Glory Funeral Services.

Mrs Henrietta Gillespie “News of the passing of Mrs Henrietta Gillespie, 90 in the Foothills Hospital, Calgary on March 31, 1979 brought a sense ofl oss to her many friends in and around Wadena. Her life and activities was for almost 60 years in Wadena and for over 15 years in neighbouring Paswegin. Henrietta Dixon was born Oct 4 at Baldur near Brandon, MB to Ben and Catherine Dixon. The family: parents, 3 sons and six daughters moved in the spring of 1903 to a farm in the Clair-Paswegin District. On Nov 9, 1910 she married Gilbert F Gillespie, a teacher of the area. The couple operated a general store in Paswegin for only about a year when a disastrous fire destroyed their store, contents and wedding presents. They were lucky to escape with their lives, although Mr Gillespie suffered terrible burns to his arms and hands. Mr Gillespie became Secretary of Lakeview R. N. When her husband was overseas with the Canadian Forces during the First World War, Mrs Gillespie herself operated the Clair Post Office and Telephone Exchange.

In 1921 the Gillespies moved into Wadena, taking up residence on Second Street, close to St John’s Anglican Church. Mr Gillespie served both the R. M. of Lakeview and Town of Wadena as Secretary and Mrs Gillespie was his assistant. For 11 years until Mr Gillespie passed on in 1947, she carried on as Municipal Secretary for Lakeview. Until her passing, Mrs Gillespie lived in the same house welcoming many visitors. Surviving are her daughter and son- in- law, Esther and Dave Taylor, four grandchildren, 3 sisters: Mrs Tina Nelson of Vancouver; Mrs Hannah Wraith of Saskatoon; Mrs Catherine Cox of Calgary, a brother Sam Dixon of Caroline, Alta; and her brother- in- law Alfred Wraith in Saskatoon.

Lorna Gillespie, SK
Lorna Gillespie, SK

Lorna Esther Gillespie, August 20, 1936 – July 18, 2023. Lorna was born on the family farm in Yarbo on August 20, 1936 to Harold and Emelia (Minnie) Sparrowhawk. She was raised in the same community and moved to Regina as a young lady where she worked at the Regina General Hospital in housekeeping. There, her older brother introduced her to his co-worker at Smeeds Trucking Company, a young man named John Gillespie.

Lorna and John married January 19, 1957 at Esterhazy Catholic Church. They started their family in Regina, relocating to Balgonie. After moving back to Regina, they finally settled their young family in Esterhazy. As well as raising her large family while John worked away from home, Lorna took employment at the Care Home, then as a nurse’s aide at St. Anthony’s Hospital. She returned to housekeeping prior to her retirement from St. Anthony’s.

In her later years, Lorna travelled extensively across North America on car trips and bus tours. She enjoyed gardening, crocheting, knitting, cooking, and baking. She loved her home and decorated for every season. Lorna was very proud of her Catholic faith and was a member of the CWL, Grey Nuns Associates and the Lay Ministry program. Her faith was a core part of her and saw her through many difficult times and joyous celebrations. Lorna bestowed on us her love of music which continues to play an integral role in her family. She had a beautiful voice and played organ and guitar wonderfully, by ear no less. She loved to dance and at one point was president of the Potashville Singles, which held dances on the weekends.

More than anything, Lorna loved her family. Her home was the centre of all family gatherings and she was so proud of when her children got together and sang, laughed, and celebrated those special times. Her many friends, acquaintances, patients, and co-workers can attest to her warm and caring nature. She was always there to lend a helping hand when needed.

Lorna is predeceased by her parents, brother David, sister and brother-in-law Dorothy and Roger Shivak, husband John, sons Kenneth, Joseph, John and Grant, and daughter-in-law Shelley. She is also predeceased by her second husband Roy Johnson. She is survived by her brother Ken (Betty), sister-in-law Marilyn, children Harold, Carmen (Gerry Oake), Earl (Cindy), Tim, Jason (Annette), Carla, 16 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.  Mass of Christian Burial on Tuesday, July 25, 2023 at Our Lady of Victories Roman Catholic Church, 308 Sussex Avenue, Esterhazy, SK S0A 0X0

Myles Gillespie, SK
Myles Gillespie, SK

Myles John Gillespie, June 18, 1954 ~ April 25, 2018  Myles John Gillespie was born in Earl Grey, Saskatchewan on June 18, 1954 to Clarence and Adella Gillespie and older brother, Garth.  This was the start of a wonderful life.  In that small town, play was interspersed with a little naughtiness and conducted in the surrounding bush and small town streets. These were almost the olden days with a town well; a phone operator who knew whose kid was calling mom or dad and a wealth of livestock to watch being unloaded from the train. The school had a barn for horses and his elementary school days started Myles on a road that would ultimately lead to Esterhazy.

In grade nine, the family moved to Balcarres to operate a Robinson’s Dry Goods Store.  Myles completed his grade twelve there with his cousins.  His uncle Bill ran the theatre along with his barber shop.  Here Myles learned the fine art of film projection. He helped with his family’s business and enjoyed life as a teenager.  He ventured off to school, the University of Regina where he followed his big brother into the natural sciences, earning a Bachelor of Science in Biology.  He deviated from biology into romance while working north of La Ronge, Saskatchewan. There on the shore of a small lake he met Mary-Lynne who was working as a geology student in that remote northern bush camp. They were married in September of 1979 and spent their first year in Regina while Myles pursued his second degree, in Education.

They moved to Esterhazy after Myles was hired to work as a science and math teacher at EHS in the junior end.  Grades 7, 8 and 9 can be a challenge, but his creative approach to teaching science, liberally spiced by true enthusiasm for his subject and love for his students led to a successful 31 year career.  He was an exceptional teacher, not only of his subjects but of life skills; discipline, integrity, forthrightness, a good work ethic and respect. He shared his enthusiasm for new experiences and the extraordinary natural world we are privileged to explore.

His ability to teach also impacted his life as a father. His three children, Peter, Matthew and Lauren all developed a love of learning, not only academics but wood work, much renovation skill, imposed by the multiple projects on our house in Yarbo and then in Esterhazy. He taught them about animals, hunting, camping, the glories of the night skies and cooking. Under his tutelage they learned to become responsible people, compassionate and cooperative adults.  Most people who interacted with him were treated to his humour and sharp wit even while suffering in the hospital.  He dealt with his disease gracefully and earned our respect and that of his caregivers. Our family has been infused with love, the kind that supports each other in times of trial. Myles passed from this life in our arms on April 25, 2018, surrounded by love and buoyed by the love of those around him. We are thankful for his life.Funeral Service was Saturday, April 28, 2018, 2:00 pm, Our Lady of Victories Roman Catholic Church, 308 Sussex Avenue, Esterhazy, SK S0A 0X0

Neil attended Luther College in Regina, SK from 1947 to 1949. He moved to Winnipeg, MB in November of 1950 and started working for the CPR Railway as a train man. He got promoted to conductor and met his wife Edna. In 1967, Neil and Edna moved to Mankota, SK with their young family. They started farming full time and continued until retirement in 2003.

Neil was passionate about quarter horses. He raised, broke and rode them. When he got too old to ride, he purchased a team of Clydesdales and drove the wagon. He enjoyed many wagon trains and parades with his team. He also delighted kids by taking them for rides on his sleigh at Christmas time.

The last four years of Neil’s life were spent at the Bentley in Swift Current, where he enjoyed playing Bridge and had a great interest in the CFL. At Neil’s request there will be no funeral service. A private family memorial service took place.
