WATSON, HARRY and HAZEL
Submitted by Hazel Watson
Harry was born at Plumas, MB, on Oct. 5, 1931, to Robert George and Dorothea Alice Pearl (Kidds) Watson.
He was the eldest child in that family. A sister, Joyce, was born on Oct. 18, 1936. By his father’s previous marriage, Harry enjoyed the companionship of two step sisters, Margaret and Betty, and one step brother, Daniel.
I, Hazel was born at Riding Mountain on Sept. 22, 1936, the sixth child of Herbert and Verna Howard. I lived there until 1951, when I moved to Neepawa. In the fall of that same year, I met Harry, and on Apr. 17, 1953, we were married.
Harry was employed with Anglo Canadian Oils at that time in Neepawa and I was a clerk in Martin’s Store. Harry’s vocation in the bulk fuel business, serving this area, extended over a span 1948-1999. Over that span of years, he was also employed by Royalite Oils and Shell Canada. Except for six years at Plumas, MB, he worked out of the Neepawa Stations. Ill health forced Harry to retire in November 1999. He was also employed from 1988-1999 as a weekend Handy Van driver, something he
dearly loved. He passed away Nov. 9, 2000.
Our fi rst child, Norma Joyce, was born on Oct. 5, 1955, and then Murray George on Oct. 1, 1956. In 1974, we adopted Harvey Burton, who was born Jan. 5, 1964. He was our foster child since twenty-two months old.
Our life together, was blessed like everyone, with “joys and tears”, but I have very “special memories” of our 47 years together.
On July 28, 1979, our son, Murray, married Diane Ruth Giesbrecht. They have three sons: Phillip Murray born Nov. 17, 1982, Steven Mark born Oct. 9, 1985, and Darren Marshall born Nov. 3, 1989. They were, and still are the joy of our (my) lives, and have added so much to our family. As of the writing of this history (January 2007), Steven is engaged to be married.
Norma married Ronald Sture Forsman on Sept. 26, 1992. I have been blessed to also enjoy Ron’s children and grandchildren, as they have allowed me to share in their lives. Norma is very devoted to all of them.
Burton has one son, Randy Lee, born on Feb. 23, 1988. He presently lives in Calgary, employed as a painter.
Norma has made her career as an accounting clerk, currently employed by Beautiful Plains School Division.
Murray followed his father’s footsteps and is now employed at Neepawa-Gladstone Co-op.
Norma’s husband, Ron, devoted a major part of his life as Owner/Operator of the Neepawa and District Ambulance Service Ltd. and now in retirement, he continues on, with his “second” best endeavour, as a devoted Town Councilor in his “hometown” Neepawa. He is very proud of his “roots” here.
Diane has been a devoted wife to Murray, always working at his side. She is also, among many other things, an accomplished seamstress. She has been employed for several years now by Beautiful Plains School Division as an Educational Assistant.
If I was to sum up my life, I would say, that it has been a “joy” to be a wife, mother, grandmother and friend. God gave me the “desire” of my heart, and I am so thankful for all the years of “love and devotion” we have shared as a family.
Although my life has had its “ups and downs”, my testimony would be, that “Through It All” I’ve learned to “Trust in Jesus”, one day at a time, and “He has kept us, in His care”.
