Hughes, Harold Allen

February 26, 1931 – March 29, 2019
at the age of 88 years

While Hal was in palliative care at Bastion, a young care worker came in to see him.  She smiled at an elderly, old man coming to the end of his journey.
I looked at him and saw a young teenager in Winnipeg, shoveling snow off the Assiniboine River.  He and his friends cleaned it so they could speed skate on the track they made.
I saw a hard working, newly married man driving the long lonely roads of Manitoba selling Carnation Milk coming home late Friday night, too tired to play with his son Kelly.
I saw a man sailing on English Bay with his new wife Glenda, face to the sun and wind at his back.
Later moving to Salmon Arm to retire and make new friends, be they young children or grown men and women.  
Always his love of music could be heard playing at home with friends and family.
Yes, young people see an old man but for me the wrinkles, brown spots and the slowing of movement were just signs of a life well lived.
I see you everyday and always will my love.
                                                                        Forever Young

Mannes, “Lenie” Helena Jannetje

April 17, 1936 – March 29, 2019
at the age of 82 years

It is with breaking hearts that we announce the passing of the gentle soul of our wife, mother and grandmother, Lenie Mannes.
Born in Rotterdam, Holland, she survived the War and immigrated to Canada three times:  the first time when she was 17, the second time five years later, and once more, the third and last time, to live for the rest of her life in her beloved land of mountains.
In 1985, after the death of her husband, Lenie was introduced to Auke (Gus) Mannes through his sister, Henja.  They held hands and never let go.  Soon after they married and started a hobby farm in Fort Langley, wrangling the heifers and corralling the chickens.  Lenie loved all animals and gave a home to many rescue dogs and cats from the SPCA over the years.
In 1992 Lenie and Gus bought an acreage and renovated their dream home on Grandview Bench, living there for 25 years until moving closer to Salmon Arm in 2017.
In between Lenie and Gus had many adventures, travelling across Canada twice by RV, the last time a three-month trip they thoroughly enjoyed, as well as trips to Alaska and Inuvik.  Both members of the Antique Car Club, they had lots of fun going to car meets and outings with the club.
Lenie leaves behind her loving husband of 34 years, Auke (Gus) Mannes, Sr., three daughters Lori Pickering, Cindy Rudolph and Leslie Bowling, stepchildren, Diana Mannes and Gus Mannes, Jr.,  and grandchildren Eric Bowling, Meagan Bowling, and Ashley Rosenberger, and great-grandson Rylan Bowling, step-grandchildren Christopher Mannes, Audrey Crouser, and step-grandchildren, Auke Crouser and Owain Crouser. 
Lenie taught us about love, generosity, and acceptance.  She will live in our hearts forever.
The family would like to especially thank the palliative care nursing team at Shuswap General Hospital for their compassionate and professional care.  In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, Shuswap Hospice Society or the SPCA.
