With great sadness we announce the passing of our mother, Julia Diane Lounsbury on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 in Saskatoon, SK at the age of 74 years.

Julia was predeceased by her parents, Russel Mullin & Elenor MacDonald; Fiance, Don Farenick.

Frances Catherine WOOD (nee: HINCHLIFF
March 7,1922- July 15,2020
Frances WOOD, precious wife of Aubrey B. WOOD, went home to her Lord on July 15th, 2020, at the age of 98 years.
Left to cherish her memory and carry on her legacies are her eight children: Lomai WOOD, Carroll YOUNG (Wayne), Murray WOOD, Deirdre FENRICH (Marvin), Ceire BARYCKI, Tara WOOD (Wayne), Reva YOUNG (Bryan), and William WOOD. Also, her 15 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren are pleased to honor her memory by learning the pathways of grace.
Frances was predeceased by her ardent and dedicated husband, Aubrey, her parents Bert and Minnie HINCHLIFF, infant daughter Ruva, infant granddaughter Camille, and grandsons Marc and Treven.
Mom was a repository of many facets of genius, being raised in the 30’s, fledged during WW II, and matured in the crucible of farm life with its many challenges. She was a wordsmith, a chef, a musician, a naturalist, a pioneer, a horse harnesser, a veteran (nurse), and a tester of mettle, including her own. We honor her for all of this, but mostly for risking her own life to give us ours, and for keeping the faith, that we may give glory to God.
A graveside service and memorial will be held for the family at a later date.


A Reflection for the Biggar United Church by Sue Bernier
Please note, the opinions expressed here are of the writer only and may not be shared by the Biggar United Church congregants or the United Church as a whole
The other day the boys were helping me in the garden and asked what a weed was. I explained a weed was something growing where it wasn’t intended or wanted. I used the example of a potato plant growing in the middle of your front lawn. A potato plant, in itself, is a good thing but not in the middle of your front lawn. We’re all familiar with weeds and we do our best to get rid of them, tame them or learn to coexist with them.
But what about God’s garden? Everyday on the news we see, hear, or read about a new crop of “weeds” set out to destroy the harmony of the rest of the garden. These “weeds” may not come dressed in fancy greenery and pretty flowers with names like Russian thistle, milk week, or dandelion. These “weeds” are coming dressed in hatred, contempt, and intolerance, among other things.
I am a believer that wearing a mask may protect myself, my family and maybe even you from contracting the covid 19 virus. I have been subjected to insults, stares, fingers waved (you know which ones) and name calling. What am I hurting by wearing a mask? I thought we lived in a country with freedoms.
The “weeds” aren’t just after those wearing masks- they are after people to look differently, speak differently, dress differently and live differently. Since we all live in God’s garden can we not learn to live in coexistence? I’m not asking you to like everyone but at least be tolerant. The colour of skin, the language spoken or the wearing of a mask does not hurt you. Please don’t feel it’s your right to hurt those who are different.

“At the rising sun and at its going down we remember them
At the blowing of the wind and in the chill
of the winter we remember them.
At the opening of the buds and in the
rebirth of spring we remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the
warmth of the summer we remember them.
At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty
of the autumn we remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when
it ends we remember them.
As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now
a part of us. As we remember them.
When we are weary and in need of
strength we remember them.
When we are lost and sick at heart we remember them.
When we have decisions that are difficult
to make we remember them.
When we have joy we crave to share we remember them.
When we have achievements that are based
on theirs we remember them.
For as long as we live, they too will live,
for they are now a part of us.
As we remember them.
Ten years have passed and we all miss you so much.”
…Love always, Leah
