[He was born at Neepawa while his parents lived at Riding Mountain.]

His parents family moved to Stettler, AB; Leedale-Leslieville area of Alberta; Tacoma, Washington; where the mother died; then Millett Alberta. His father moved to Jack Buchanan's farm where he lived in his own one-room shack, and had a blacksmith shop. He lived there until his death.

He quit school after grade 6 to help support the family by cleaning streetcars.
At some point he also worked in a box factory.
He also worked building bridges for the railroad.

"In 1935 Floyd and Mary Jane (Mamie) and George Buchanan moved SE of Breton to NW19-47-3-W5 on the John Biro place. Our neighbors were the Ing family to the south and the Jim Impey family to the north." - The Ladder of Time p. 255

George met Dorothy while working in a lumber camp, and they were married. They lived near Breton, AB (near Gryzyb's farm); Conjuring Creek, south of Calmar; in the bush near Carnwood or Lyndale while working for Pearson's sawmill; on his farm about 7 miles west of Breton; his brother Jack's farm 6 miles west of Breton; Camrose; Jack's farm again; Edgewater, BC; and lastly Breton, where he and Dorothy shared a house with Jack until Jack was too sick and had to go to the hospital.
In 1964 Jack Buchanan and George Buchanan sold their farms to Doug Smith.
In 1969 George and Dorothy moved back to Breton from Edgewater.

William Buchanan
William George Buchanan of Breton passed away September 3, 1975 at the age of 69 years. Mr. Buchanan was born at Neepawa, Manitoba, May 1, 1906. He was a resident of Breton for many years, and a member of the Breton Golden Age Club. He is survived by his loving wife Dorothy; four sons: Bill and Lloyd of Alberta Beach, Reg of Calgary, and Ed of Edmonton; one daughter, Mrs. Judy (Bernard) Tetreau of Edmonton; five grandchildren, and one sister, Mrs. Inez McCallum of Edmonton. Rev. Robert Lang officiated at the funeral held Saturday Sepemeber 6 at 10:30 a.m. from the Breton Community Hall. Interment took place in the Breton Cemetery. Baker Funeral Chapel was in charge of arrangements.

His cousin Gloria Burns Praill tells about him telling ghost stories when she and her mother and sisters were staying at Dick Watson's place at Millet prior to their move to the USA in the 1920s. She said "I also remember the Buchanans visiting at Dick's place, particularly a Geordie who told us ghost stories around a campfire and scared us to death. He was GOOD!!!" George's niece Bev McCallum Aubichon mentioned that he told stories about characters he made up, such as the Gily-loo bird and the Sock-ra-dollager. I think the Gilly-loo bird was the one that flew backwards to keep the dust out of its eyes, or maybe that was the Wiffenwaffen. I vaguely remember the Side-hill Gouger, who always walked around the mountain in the same direction, so that one leg was longer than the other. I remember him singing nonsense songs to my younger brothers as he gave them "horsey rides" on the instep of his foot.

Dad loved this old song, which reminded him of his younger sister Margaret, who died as a young woman.
Music by J.A. Butterfield. Words by Geo. W. Johnson. 1910 -
I wandered today to the hill, Maggie, To watch the scene below, The creek and the creaking old mill, Maggie, Where we sat long, long ago. -
The green grass is gone from the hill, Maggie, Where once the daisies sprung.
The Creaking old mill now is still, Maggie,
Since you and I were young. - And now we are aged and gray, Maggie; The trials of life nearly done. Let us sing of the days that are gone, Maggie, When you and I were young. - A city, so silent and lone, Maggie, Where the young and the gay and the blest, In polished, white mansions of stone, Maggie, Have each found a place of rest, Is built where the birds used to play, Maggie, And join in the songs that were sung; And we sang as gaily as they, Maggie, When you and I were young.

I don't know why Dad had difficulty getting his birth registered, because these forms had been completed and submitted away back in 1935.

This account by the Haluszka family shows some of the ways that George and Dorothy affected the lives of their neighbors.
"The Ladder of Time", a history of Breton and area, p.424
Walter and Anastazia Haluszka were both raised in a village called Wetlien near the town of Yaroslavl in the Ukraine.
The onslaught of the Second World War brought them both to Germany. There they were married and had their first child, Mary. During the years that they lived in Germany, Walter owned his own shoemaker shop.
In March of 1949, Walter came to Canada; six months later, Anastazia followed with Mary.
In Canada, Walter worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway and later worked for his brother, Mike, and several other neighbors.
George Buchanan was working in camp and his wife, Dorothy, stayed in town so they offered Walter and Anastazia their house to live in; in exchange they had to take care of the stock. Since they couldn't afford to buy meat they ate porcupine. Not knowing how to use a gun and never having used one before, Anastazia went out and shot prairie chickens off the roof of the house.
Walter stayed for a few months and then went to work up North. Anastazia had to feed a cow and her calf and one heifer. The Buchanans wanted to move back to their house in the spring, so they moved a small shack into their yard. Anastazia moved into the shack and built shelves and made the shack liveable.
The house moved from their first farm to the home farm. Beside the house is their first car.
Walter returned from work and they rented a farm for one-year. This farm had a house, a barn and a few other small buildings. There were w-acres of land cleared on this farm.
In 1950 a second child, Steve, was born. The same year they bought two horses and a wagon with the money Walter earned up North. George Buchanan gave Anastazia the calf she raised while she took care of his farm. They cut pulpwood and earned money to buy a cow and a plow.

George's boyhood friend Albert Bailey is listed here on page 10.

Dad sometimes described himself as a conservationist. Conservationists wanted to conserve natural resources. They had been through the "dirty 30s" and wanted to better prepared the next time the world was hit by drought and depression. Today's "ecologists" often feel that humanity can control the weather. Conservationists did not. They could only try to be better prepared for bad weather.

Dad kept a pry bar in the trunk of his cars. He said if he ever came across an accident where someone was trapped in a vehicle, the pry bar could be used to free them.

1886- This marks the Beginning of Edgewater when at the time of the completion of the main line of the C.P.R., James L. McKay came into the Valley from Golden. McKay bought 15000 acres of Government land and established “McKay Estates”.
1900- James McKay married and seven years later, built a large white “Eaton House”.
1909-The Crown granted homestead lots to John W. McNeil. Dave and Fred Larmour had the D.L.Ranch, later owned by Eric Smith as the U-5 Ranch.The Larmour home was built on the land in 1915 and was another “Eaton House”.
1911- Columbia Valley Syndicate bought the McKay property.
1912- Columbia Valley Orchards and the Kelowna Irrigation Co. moved 15 men and 10 teams into the area. They plowed roads and built a sawmill to produce lumber for the irrigation flume. This was the beginning of Edgewater. This same year the town site was surveyed.
1915- Columbia Valley Orchards goes into bankruptcy.
1918- The population is 30.
1922- Dr. Gaddes bought the land from the executor of the defunct Dominion Trust.
1928-Population 200. School built in town.
1946-Dr. Gaddes sold out and retired. The remaining town lots and some acreages were bought by H. Moore.

Early Memories and Poetry
One of my early memories is a discussion of poetry by my parents. As I remember it, the discussion took place in about 1950. We were living in the old log house on our farm about 6 miles west of Breton, Alberta. The discussion may have been sparked by something I was studying. Mom and Dad grew up in a different time period. It was a time of little 1-room schools scattered among the farms, and children usually walked to school. Dad had only 6 years of schooling and Mom had 9. Even in my generation that would be considered inadequate. But it was quite normal for their generation, where the local school only offered grades 1-6 or maybe 1-9. But these schools emphasized the importance of life-long learning. My parents were both highly-intelligent and were voracious readers, so that in many areas they were better educated than I was, despite my university degree.
What poem were they discussing? I remember two actually ... "The Inchcape Rock" and "Abou Ben Adhem". It is the latter that holds my attention right now, by the English poet, Leigh Hunt. (The actual spelling of the central character's name has two different forms. I will use the simpler form.)
Abu Ben Adam, may his tribe increase
Awoke one night from a deep dream of peace
And saw, within the moonlight of his room
Making it rich, like a lily in bloom
An angel writing in a book of gold.
Exceeding peace had made Abu Ben Adam bold
And to the presence in his room he said
' What writest thou?'
The vision raised its head
And with a look of all sweet accord Answered:
'The names of those who love the Lord.
'And is mine one?' said Abu.
'Nay not so' Replied the Angel
Abu spoke more low
But cheerily still and said
'I pray thee then Write me as one that loves his fellow-men'
The angel wrote and vanished.
The next night it came again with awaking light
And showed the names whom love of God had blessed.
And lo! Ben Adam's name led all the rest.
I think this poem carries a beautiful message. Dad in particular had a high regard for "the common man", his peer. Alexander Pope, in An Essay on Man wrote "An honest man is the noblest work of God." By this measure, all of us are of noble parentage, for we all have such people in our family tree!

Happy Fathers Day 2011
Yesterday Judy and I attended the dance recital for five of our granddaughters. After the 6-hour event we met Laurel's family at the Spruce Grove McDonalds for a late supper. It was a long, fun-filled day.

I paused to reflect on my own father's life. He passed away on September 3, 1975 at age 69. During the intermissions at the dance recital, I started writing down some of my memories of my father. I continued after we got home.

Dad was born near Neepawa, Manitoba in 1906. His father, Bill, was a blacksmith and owned his own business in the village of Riding Mountain, and later in the town of Neepawa. When Dad was young, his parents moved to Leslieville, Alberta, where he received much of his education. His family later moved to the city of Tacoma, Washington. Dad and his friends spent much of their spare time swimming in the bay. They all tanned, except for Dad. (So if you can’t tan, you inherited it from him.) He also became an amazing swimmer. He could swim for miles.

Times were tough. He quit school after grade 6 to help support the family by cleaning streetcars. At some point he also worked in a box factory, making wooden boxes. When he was 17 his mother became sick and died. His father was left with four children, the youngest being 8 years old. Bill was under pressure to give her up for adoption. Instead he moved back to Canada, setting up a blacksmith shop in Millett, Alberta, and later west of Millett where his brother-in-law Dick Watson had a farm.

Dad worked at various hard physical work, like building wooden bridges out of large timbers for the railroad. This may be where he developed a hernia that occasionally troubled him with dizzy spells for most of his life. He was not a large man, but was very strong. After he married my mother he became a farmer, and farmed without power equipment … just the muscle power of a team of horses and his own. In the winter he worked as a logger, cutting down trees with a bow saw, trimming off the branches with an axe, and skidding the trees to the picking up point with the help of his favorite horse, a black Morgan-cross named “Pet”. Later he worked as a pipe-fitter in the Camrose oilfield for three years, for Canadian Construction. When the family moved to Edgewater, BC, he worked in the planing mill for about 10 years, and when the sawmill closed down he did maintenance for Kootenay National Park.

Dad was a hard worker and an honest man, and taught me to be the same. But there was much more to him than that. I remember watching him when I was a young child, as he give my little brother Lloyd “horsey rides” on the instep of his foot, while singing nonsense songs to him. He would tell us stories using made-up characters, like the Side-hill Gouger who always walked around the mountain in the same direction so one leg was longer than the other. And of a bird that always flew backwards to keep the dust out of its eyes. He loved the game of checkers, and I remember him making us a checker board from a sheet of cardboard and sawing wooden disks from a broken handle to make the game pieces.

Over seventy years later, his cousin Gloria Burns Praill still remembered him telling ghost stories when she and her mother and sisters were staying at Dick Watson's place at Millet prior to their move to the USA in the 1920s. She said "I also remember the Buchanans visiting at Dick's place, particularly a Geordie who told us ghost stories around a campfire and scared us to death. He was GOOD!!!"

Dad regretted his lack of education. He had the mind of a good lawyer, but was trapped by a poor education. He was very intelligent and was an avid reader. In some areas of knowledge he probably achieved the equivalent of a university degree. His special interests were political science, economics, and the environment. He had a deep love and appreciation for nature. Nature provided the trees and the farm land and wild game he depended on to feed his family. He taught us to treat nature with respect. He recognized God as the creator of nature, but attended church only on special occasions, although he read the Bible and had a good basic knowledge of it.

To his very core, he deeply disbelieved in war. Maybe he sensed that WWII was a different kind of war, because he actually volunteered for it but was rejected because his hernia caused occasional dizzy spells.

Both my parents formed lasting friendships and had a strong sense of community. Dad was president of the Edgewater Senior Citizens’ Club.

Physically, Dad stood 5’9” tall, with dark wavy hair, and never went bald. He had a black wolf’s head tattooed on his left forearm. The wolf had a red tongue. Dad had a very sharp mind, often perceiving the stories behind the news. After all, the official news is just one side of the story.

Like most farmers, he could build and repair almost anything. He and his brother Jack built Jack’s house in about 1944. They had half-completed an interesting house for our family on our nearby farm, with walls made of 6 inch timbers on end. When Jack and Tina moved away, this project was abandonned and we moved into the finished house on their farm. In about 1951 he bought a town lot in Breton, bought a shack from Pearson's sawmill company, moved it onto the lot and created a house by building onto it. In Edgewater about 1956 he did the same thing. This time Reg, Lloyd and I were old enough to offer a little help. He did the carpentry, plumbing and electrical wiring himself. I learned much from him that helped me to build my own house. Perhaps the most important thing I learned was that it was possible to build your own house.

He was a good man, and a good husband and father. I am deeply grateful for the privilege I have of being his son.

Happy Fathers Day Dad!

Memories of Dad
I remember that Dad was very self reliant, he was a determined, confident and kind man.
When he was out of work in one field he would move on to another and continue on.
The most important thing was to provide for his family as best he could.
This resulted is us having to move around quite a bit.
Another thing I remember is his generosity to immigrants and new comers to our farming community. Many of these new comers came with very little in the way of possessions.
In many instances Dad would “give” a cow or calf or some other useful animal or item to our new neighbor. This was in spite of the fact we had very little ourselves. Some of this I found out about years later. He never made a “deal” out of the gestures of kindness and generosity. He simply did them because for him it was the natural thing to do.
When my uncle became sick, he came back to Breton from British Columbia to care for him. My uncle and my Dad had become distant from one another, but that didn’t stop him from doing what he felt was right.
These are only a small number of my memories of Dad.
Although many years have passed,
I miss him and think of him…

Laurel Layton to me
Dad, thanks for sharing these memories of your dad. I was so little when he passed that I don't have any memories of my own. I know I've seen a picture of him holding me on his lap and have heard from you and Grandma nothing but praises of a good, honest, kind hearted man. I look forward to getting to know him better when my time here is finished and I return to the other side of the veil. I'm sure you have missed him and wished you had had more time with him. I know for myself that I still really depend on the advice, reassurance and prayers of my parents. I'm grateful to be your daughter and so glad that my children get to know you as their grandpa. As I read the type of man you described your father to be I could see how you became the man you are. Aside from your opportunity for higher education you can be described similarly. I love you. Thanks for being my dad. Laurel.

George Buchanan was born in Riding Mountain, Manitoba on May 1st 1906. I first met him when he moved southeast of Breton on the John Biro farm with Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Maine in
1939. At this time, George worked for Anthony's at Antross and in the lumber camps in the winter. We were married in Winfield, Alberta in February 1941.
That summer, George worked in Nystrom's camp southwest of Camwood. After he built a shack, I went out with him. The Nystrom brothers went home for harvesting in the fall and we stayed to look after the horses. Prairie chickens and partridges were plentiful and we ate our share.
In the late fall, we bought a lot in Breton where John Reputakowski now lives, and moved the shack onto it. In February 1942 our first son Bill was born. We lived in town until April 1943 when we bought the Charlie Broton quarter SW1-48-4 West of the 5th. We moved the shack from town and built on a bedroom. George's dad, William Andrew Buchanan, sold his blacksmith shop 10 miles west of Millet, so he and brother Jack, from Coleman, came to live with us. We cleaned up the little shack Mr. Broton had lived in to have a place for them to sleep. The men started building a house in the summer and finished it in the fall. In October 1943, our second son, Reginald, was born.
We bought another farm, the McNeil place SW1-48-5-W5. We moved there as Jack married Tina Pacholka in December. Mr. McNeil had kept the building neat. He had white washed the outside of the log house and chickenhouse. Part of the house was slab and plaster over the logs inside. It had quite big windows for a log house; also it had a brick chimney which I was very glad of as I am afraid of fires and was left by myself with the children in the winter while George worked away from home. George built a fence of slabs to keep the children in because two Moose Creeks ran one on each side of us.
Our third son, Lloyd, was born in March 1945; then Edward in March 1950. When Bill started school, he stayed in town with Mr. and Mrs. Alf Benson. The next year, Roy Prentice drove the school bus and our second son, Reg, started school. The boys had to walk 2 miles to Kubejkos west corner to catch the bus. They left home at 7:30 in the morning and I would worry that they would miss the bus or freeze going to it. The bus brought them home around 5 in the afternoon, a long day for a couple of small boys. Jack and Tina decided to move to Edmonton, so we moved to their place as the bus would pick them up there.
We had a house in Breton across from Cleve Carson where we lived in the winter as George worked away from home all winter. In the summer, we went back to the farm. We later sold that house to Mr. and Mrs. Jake Waunch. George started working as a pipefitter in the oilfield at Camrose so we all moved there for the summer and fall. Before winter, we moved back to Breton. Our only daughter, Judy, was born December 1952.
In August 1954, we moved to Edgewater, B.C. where George worked in the planer mill, and in latter years, in Kootney National Park. We moved back to Breton in July 1969 as Jack was very sick. We lived with Jack but his house was too small so we bought the Roos house close to the high school.
The family have all left home. Bill married Judy Kinney and they have four children. He works in the Alberta Correspondence Branch and they live at Alberta Beach, Alta. Reg married Carol Serridge and they have two children. He is a computer operator and lives in Fernie, B.C., Lloyd works as caretaker for the Wood Haven School in Spruce Grove and he lives at Alberta Beach, Alta. Edward is Master Corporal in the Airforce at Cold Lake, Alta. Judy married Bernard Tetreau and they have one son and live in Vegreville, Alta.
George's dad, William Andrew, passed away May 1948, Tina April 1967 and Jack April 1974. George was very sick for over a year. He passed away September 1975. I live alone in my home. My family visits me whenever they can and I am very thankful for all my friends.

by Ernest Kinney

Well dear here's a bit of my history. I'll give it my best shot. You know Dad (Edward James Kinney) died at age 39, I was ten years old at the time. Mother was 40 years old, she passed away in 1927. I was 16 at the time. I never met or seen any of my grandparents, seems they died young too.

I left school at 14, as most kids did then. You see we had to work to support each other as it were.

Yes, Dad was born in Ireland, and I believe Mother came from Wales. Her maiden name was Davidson. [He is mistaken on the birth places of both.]

After working at different jobs, no one had such a thing as a steady job in those days, and it became impossible to get a decent job for a decent wage. After the folks died us kids all went our different ways, no one would lift a finger to help.

About this time they were looking for young English teenagers to come to Canada to work on the farms. I had a chance of here, Africa or Australia or New Zealand. The ship I sailed on was the ASCANIA and I landed in Quebec May 1928. No, the Kinney name has no crest, but until I heard of KINNEY SHOES I'd never come across it before.

I along with about ten other guys were brought to Saskatchewan. It wasn't of my choosing. I first went to work for a farmer in Tisdale. I had many jobs, just kept shunting back and forth. 1932 I went to work for your grandmother, Mrs. Randall, actually it was her husband, her second by the way. He was an out and out devil believe me.

Your mother and I went together for 5 years. I couldn't stand working for him steady. I had to get away at times. I don't know how Sally and Charlie stuck it out. By this time my impressions of Canada weren't good, I felt like I'd jumped from the frying pan into the fire. But times were tough, then it was depression days and money and jobs were pretty scarce.

I've never said this to anyone Judy, but I don't think our marriage had a chance. Seems we had two strikes against us to begin with. And I'll bet we never spent more than four of our eight years together. Of course I was in the service for four years and one year in the hospital, having had that lung removed.

But getting back to my family. I'm sorry I can't be of more help. Both Dad and Mother came from large families. How sad it was they both died so young. And how unfortunate for us kids.

I could write a book, but I think you get the picture. Next time I'll have some more things to say. But it hasn't been a pleasant life for me, only in some incidents.

This letter was written to Judy Buchanan in February 1981.

LONDON.Oct. 11.
The Secretary of State for the Dominions (Mr. L. C. Amery), replying to questions which had been put to him by Labour members of Parliament, said that no doubt there were some cases of hardship among the harvesters who went to Canada, especially as the men were facing unfamiliar work in a now country, but he was satisfied that a general complaint of bad treatment could not be substantiated. There was abundant evidence that many of the men had made good.
The British Parliamentary delegation has returned from its mission to Canada. Viscount Peel, on behalf of the Conservatives, expressed an opinion agreeing with Mr. Amery's, adding that a few farmers were unsympathetic, but generally they wore anxious to give the harvesters a fair deal.
Mr, Tom Johnson, M.P., on behalf of the Labour members, blamed haste and faulty selection for many failures, but saild thst a large proportion of the harvesters did not complain.
WINNIPEG, Oct. 12,
The Federal Minister for Immigration announces that serious consideration is being given to a plan for the establishment of a flat passage rate of £10 or £12 for all British migrants over 17 years of age. thus eliminating the assisted passage scheme. He stated that British settlers were preferred to Continental migrants.

"The number of harvesters who went to Canada was 8,449, and the number who have returned is 6,876. Of those who have returned 4,577 received a loan of the whole or part of their return passage money."

Is there anyone out there that has any information on a scheme the government ran in the early twenties, recruiting young men from England. The scheme was called the Harvesting Scheme. The government paid for the fare for men age 19 to 21 to come to Canada to work on the farms

His name is given on his birth certificate and elsewhere as Ernest Kinney. In later life he gave his name as Robert Ernest Kinney, and referred to himself as Bob rather than Ernie. Our family continued to call him Ernie.

A veteran of World War II, the Royal Canadian Legion was important in his life. In the last 15 years of his life, he made an effort to re-establish contact with his children. Charlie and Sally Hippard were instrumental in this. Ernie had left his family when they were all small children. He was never a father-figure in their lives, that role was filled by their uncle Charlie Hippard, who always treated them like they were his own children.

MR. ROBERT (ERNEST) KINNEY of Lethbridge, passed away at his home on Thursday, March 15, 1990 at the age of 78 years.

Mr. Kinney was born in Liverpool, England on April 7, 1911. He came to Canada in May of 1928, and later to Lethbridge in 1946. He served in the Army from 1939 to 1945.

Hi Judy and Bill
Regarding Aunt Mary.... I remember asking my mom how we were related to Aunt Mary because I never saw her in any of our genealogy either. I remember her telling me that (oh oh here goes my memory) she or her husband Ken was either a cousin to Ernest Teale [Kinney] and they just called her aunt Mary, or that she was a very good friend of the Ernest Teale family so they called her Aunt Mary. Somehow though I think she was his cousin.
I have no other information about her. - cindy

Sally Hippard's Dream of Ernest Kinney
A Year After His Death
In 1991, Sally Hippard said she saw Ernie Kinney in a dream: "He was teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. There were other people with him, apparently helping him, but he was the one who was teaching. I could hear his words and recognize that he was teaching the gospel, but as each word was said, I forgot it. The people seemed to be responding positively to his teaching".

Myrtle "Ione" TEALE [Parents] was born on 12 Nov 1916 in Sylvania, Saskatchewan, Canada. She died on 22 Dec 2005 in Cardston, Alberta, Canada. She married Ernest Robert KINNEY on 19 Jul 1937 in Tisdale, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Ione had a serious nervous breakdown about 1947. Her husband had abandonned her with 3 small children. She was unable to cope and was institutionalized. The government wanted to put the children up for adoption, but Ione's mother won custody of the children and brought them to Alberta. There she raised them, with help from her daughter Sally and Sally's husband Charlie Hippard.

By the 1980s Ione had recovered enough to be transferred from the mental hospital to a residence for seniors. She investigated the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was baptized on 28 Jun 1986 by her son Bob, an elder in the church.

As of 2000, Ione lives at the Grandview Lodge in Cardston, Alberta. Her health is not good. While she is mentally quite alert, she is physically weak and requires oxygen. Ione passed away on the 22 Dec 2006.

Married 19 July 1937 according to A Weaver's Pretty Daughter, p. 70, but the 12th is believed to be the correct date.

Bishop Roy Oler, of Cardston 7th Ward conducted the funeral.
He quoted from Wordsworth; "trailing clouds of glory do we come, from God, who is our home"
Ione chose to brighten the world through her personality and her talents.
Life is a journey, not just a destination. She has overcome life's chellenges.
Life and time are short,we need to choose wisely the most important choices, those things that will bring eternal joy and happiness. "Man is, that he might have joy."
Joy comes from unselfish service and associating with family and friends, doing works of righteousness. Our employment and career have little impact on out eternal destination. God will welcome us at the end of our life. Focus on the good things that our Father in Heaven wants us to do. Enjoy life! Improve ourselves! Love others!
I marvel at the kindness shown by the workers at the Grandview Lodge - an example of Christ-like service.
God is our Father. Man is our brother. Life is a mission, not a career.
All things shall be restored to their proper and perfect frame. The resurrection saves us from the imperfections of our bodies, and we are raised to happiness.
We lived before this life. We pass from this life to a sphere of happiness and joy if we have lived to prepare ourselves for it.
We bring nothing with us when we are born, and we take nothing with us when we die but our testimony, talents, relationships, and memories.
May we so live, to enjoy eternal happiness.

MYRTLE IONE TEALE KINNEY - Eulogy given by Judy.
I will start with her story as she told it in 1981:
“I was born in a blizzard November 12, 1916 in the school district of Willow Hill, Saskatchewan. Willow Hill is in the Prince Albert Municipality, which is in North Saskatchewan.
My parents were Arthur and Alice Teale. I was the youngest of four children. I only weighed two pounds.
My daddy was missing at Vimy Ridge, France where he was a soldier. He came from Yorkshire England, and homesteaded at Arpsville School District.
When I was three years old my mother remarried to Fredrick Alvin Randall, and we went to live at Arpsville. I grew up at Arpsville in a quiet home life.
We learned the Bible from “The Sunday School by Post.” My favorite teacher was Mr. Arps. I had friends at Arpsville. We saw a town about four times in childhood.
I was a thin girl until about sixteen years old. I fell in love at sixteen, and at twenty-one I married Ernest Kinney in the year of 1937 at Tisdale.
Margerie was my first baby and Ernest Kinney joined the army. I travelled with the army until settling down at Stratford, Ontario. I loved my babies very much and I am glad to know they love me now.
I took mentally ill in 1944 and went to Ponoka in 1948.”
So, Ione met her future husband Ernest Kinney in 1932, when he came to work as a farmhand for her mother and stepfather. They dated for 5 years and married in July 1937. This was during the great depression. Then Ernie served in the army from 1939-1945 and spent one year recovering in the hospital from a collapsed lung.
Ione and Ernie had three children.
Marjorie Lois Kinney was born in 1940 and married Kay Lee Crabtree in 1959.
Marge and Kay have a family of four: Bill, Cindy, Tom and Melanie.
Robert Elwin Kinney was born in 1943 and married Shirley Margaret Olson in 1964.
Bob and Shirley have two children: Debbie and Steven
In 1975 he married Patricia Mazur. Bob and Pat had no children.
Judith Marlene Kinney was born in 1944 and married William Richard Buchanan in 1968.
Judy and Bill have six children: Rob, Blaine, Laurel, Evelyn, Andrew, and James.
In 1955 Mother was transferred to the Raymond Hospital. It happened like this. It was decided to have her come from Ponoka to spend Christmas with the family. We met her at the bus depot in Raymond and walked her home. The visit didn’t go as well as expected, but it was decided to transfer her from Ponoka to the Raymond Hospital. This was a really good move for Mother and for the family, because we could visit frequently, whereas when she was in Ponoka, we never got to see each other.
It was nice for the family having Mother close by and we brought her home for all the special occasions: Christmas, Easter, Mothers Day, Thanksgiving, and so forth. She always enjoyed the Raymond July 1st parade and the family picnic in Sally and Charlie’s back yard. When any of the family came to Raymond they would always bring her out to be with the grandchildren.
In later years Mother’s condition improved so much that when the Raymond mental hospital was turned into the Raymond Home for the elderly, she was able to stay in the Home. Later she moved into the Raymond Seniors Lodge. She enjoyed drawing and was popular with other people in the lodge. In 1986 she gained a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and was baptized by Bob. About 15 years ago she moved to the Grandview Lodge in Cardston.
Ione is someone who loved art and she took an art course by correspondence. She delighted to draw pictures for her children and grandchildren. She liked to draw pictures of nature especially birds. At Christmas she found the chocolates and salted nuts a special treat. She loved the babies and had a talent for walking the floor with them and settling them down to sleep, even when no one else could settle them down. On one occasion the family were home visiting and Michelle and Cindy were small babies and were being very fussy. No one could get them to settle down. Mother picked up Cindy and walked with her until Cindy fell asleep, then she picked up Michelle and walked with her until she fell asleep. Then as other grandchildren came along, she would do the same thing with them.
She loved nature and enjoyed walking around outdoors. In later years, she enjoyed having Bob read stories to her during his visits. When we visited her we would usually just talk and hold her hand. She was popular with other people at the Grandview Lodge. The nursing staff commented that she never complained and they found her to be “an angel”. She was one of their favorites.
She wrote several poems. This is one of them:
You ask me why I love the fall?
Then kindly lend an ear.
Autumn my very soul doth call,
Softly, and yet I hear.
It slips out past its iron bars
Into a peaceful rest,
When skies are bright with moon and stars.
And the gentle winds are blest.
The fragrance of the dying flowers
Is in the autumn air,
And near the silvery willow bowers
Shy violets, passing fair.
The Bluejay calls through the meadow grass
Where the peaceful cattle graze;
The grasses droop in sweet repose
In still October days.
And all those fields of golden grain -
An unmerciful hand has brought them down
Like falling rain,
In sadness to the sand.
Autumn? It is a field of glee,
Near the sad brim of death;
And we reap its dying beauty
In the sad wind’s moaning breath.
lone Teale Kinney

Life was not easy for Ione. She has not been healthy for many years. She is now free from the prison that her body had become. Again she is able to walk and talk, and laugh and sing. And is with the family she loved: her father, mother, sister, brothers, and daughter. This poem expresses her love for her father and mother.
Mother’s Picture
There’s not a lovelier picture
In memory’s recall,
Than that of my dear, dear mother,
The loveliest of all.
You can’t but love her kindly eyes,
That brow so good and fair;
Her picture in my souvenirs
To me’s a treasure rare.
Perhaps I’d fain be Daddy’s girl,
(How oft I longed to be,)
I’d love to see his manly face,
To have him here with me.
But who could fill my mother’s place,
Whose smile could be so kind?
Another who could fill her place
In this world you can’t find.
It’s true we do not always love
With our hearts full measure;
Yet absence makes the heart grow fond
And brings us long-sought pleasure.
Ione Teale Kinney
She had developed many Christ-like qualities. She had the gifts of love, faith, patience, and was accepting of her circumstances. She also had a kind and gentle nature. Her greatest sorrow was not being able to raise her own children.
In Doctrine and Covenants 10:18 we read “Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God.” Her life had meaning and purpose. She gave us life. We thank her for this. She was loved by her family and will be missed by them.

Little Irish
Dear little boy with redgold curls
And eyes of blue;
Aunty calls him little Irish
And you would too.
If you could see his great big smile.
Just three or four –
Still hasn’t lost his baby way,
Blue eyes twinkling this live-long day,
Hands are busy.
Feet are running at their play.
At last it’s night,
And tired, he is off to bed,
With a childish little protest
And shake of his head;
But there’s another day, my lad,
So go to sleep;
Yes, you have had a busy time,
And there’s that slide you meant to climb.
Do it tomorrow; Good Night,
And pleasant dreams, wee lad.
lone Teale Kinney written to Mervin
Just a Lad
A gay young lad trudging off to school,
Book-bag slung over his arm,
He walks along in a carefree way,
And naught does him alarm.
I wonder what this lad will be
When he grows to be a man;
Oh, may he be a tribute to
His folks and native land.
And may God guide his destiny,
As he walks life’s long road,
And I hope his smile will always cheer
And unburden another’s load.
Oh, may the world be kind to him,
This little lad of ours;
As he walks bravely off to school
Amid sunshine or showers.
Ione Teale Kinney
(Written to Llewellyn when he was seven.)
A Baby
All her little baby gestures,
Her smiles and tears;
They will all be dear to Mamma
In after years.
When she has grown to womanhood
And left our nest-
I will sit before the fire
And dream and rest.
I will recall the pleasures
Of her baby days;
Her brave attempts to talk and walk.
Her funny ways.
How deeply baby’s laughter
And baby’s tears,
Will soften up the heart that has
Grown hard through years.
Of toil and pain and this world’s sins;
Bring faith again
And hope to the declining soul.
A power has been placed.
In its trusting little hands.
God gave to man
The greatest of his blessings
In a baby.
Ione Teale Kinney
(Written to her own baby, Marge.)
A Mother’s Picture
T’here’s not a lovelier picture
In memory’s recall,
Than that of my dear, dear mother,
The loveliest of all.
You can’t but love her kindly eyes,
That brow so good and fair;
Her picture in my souvenirs
To me’s a treasure rare.
Perhaps I’d fain be Daddy’s girl,
(How oft I longed to be,)
I’d love to see his manly face,
To have him here with me.
But who could fill my mother’s Place,
Whose smile could be so kind?
Another who could fill her place
In this world you can’t find.
It’s true we do not always love
With our heart’s full measure;
Yet absence makes the heart grow fond
And brings us long-sought pleasure.
Ione Teale Kinney
S ... is for her serene face,
And simplicity of grace.
I ... the Ivy’s tokens speak
Of the friendship others seek.
S ... is for the sisterly love
open from the vaults above
T ... is for the tender care
That banished trouble everywhere.
E ... is her eyes of calm, soft grey,
R ... her righteousness always.
Ione Teale Kinney
A Young Mother in War Time
I’m getting lonely for the bright lights,
just sitting a-longing for you;
Wanting a chance to go places,
Looking for something to do.
I rise at five in the morning
And go to bed at eight;
I’m getting awefully tired
Of this hum-drum rate.
My feet and body want to dance,
My heart it wants to sing;
But the best that I can do
Is give Aunty a ring.
Yet, through the day, as I work away
Cheered by a motherly smile,
With never a word that rubs the wrong way
I’m happy all the while.
Night comes down so dark and grey,
No stars or moon come out;
The lights go out the same old way
Shutting out the light of day.
Cuddled up in my little bed
My eyes declining to sleep;
So many things to worry about
That I could almost weep.
When morning comes, that clock strikes five
I jump up fresh and gay;
And once again my heart’s content.
All through another day.
Ione Teale Kinney
You ask me why I love the fall?
Then kindly lend an ear –
Autumn my very soul doth call,

Near the sad brim of death;
And we reap its dying beauty

lone Teale Kinney

Death is the Owner
He is an invalid, pale and worn,
His face is sad, lone and forlorn.
They say his heart is cold and hard,
And no one claims him for a pard.
But when his heart is warmed within
His laugh the love of all doth win,
For in his soul there burns a light
That only illness hides to sight.
And yet, could not a gentle hand
The mischief of this boy command?
And still he knows he cannot ask,
For on his face is death the mask.
And numbered are his threads of life
The strands are few and worn with strife;
Sadly he nears the brink of death
Life is but held by a faltering breath.
Then like the swan, his death song sings,
Driving off life that vainly clings;
And thus he sinks in ecstasy,
And goes to rest where all is free.
lone Teale Kinney
Hopeless Love
Oh, love, oh hopeless love!
Why is your shadow cast on me?
Why should I live a dream:
A love I know that cannot be?
A dream of castles in the air,
Built but to fall, not rise,
Of fickle boys that break the heart
And leave you to your sighs.
