Tony and Amanda lived a somewhat quieter life after celebrating their 60th Anniversary. They still enjoyed play­ ing cards with residents of the Parkland Home and visits to and from family members. On March 21, 1987, they cele­ brated their 65 years of married life together with many relatives and friends at a 'Come and Go Tea' at the Legion Hall in Erickson, MB.

Tony's health began to fail that fall, and on November 10, 1987, he reluctantly entered the Erickson Hospital. He wanted to wait a day or two so he could attend the Remembrance Day Service at the Legion - a service he faithfully attended every year. The Doctor insisted on his admittance that day, and with his health failing rapidly, he died on December 27, 1987, at 91 years, 3 months, of age.

Amanda's interest in life diminished after losing her husband of 65 years, 9 months and her health also went downhill, spending time in and out of the hospital. She became a resident of the Personal Care Home in Erickson on July 12, 1991, and on December 24 ofthat year she fell and broke her hip. She did not walk again after that. Her health failed considerably and on June 21, 1992, Mom went to meet her Maker at a fine age of 89 years, 8 months.

Tony and Amanda are both buried at the Municipal Cemetery at Erickson, MB.
