Dad and mom moved to Souris in 1991 where they made many friends and always had someone popping in. He enjoyed Hunting, Fishing and him and Mom would often go to Stockton and spend quiet days fishing with family or friends. They spent many weekends in Roseisle with longtime friends John and Eunice Beckett visiting and playing cards or board games until all hours of the night and then up early so he and John could get out early to take the boat out on the lake. Always lots of fun and laughs when the two families got together. He has left behind many good memories for all that knew him.
The family would like to sincerely thank Dr Cram, and all the Nurses, Healthcare Aids and Hair Dressers (dad was finicky about his hair lol) for taking such great care of our Dad during his time at the PCH. Thanks to those who have sent their thoughts and Prayers over the past couple of weeks.

Linda Diane Teetaert (King)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wife, mother, and grandmother Linda. Linda passed away peacefully with her family at her side on November 10, 2019 at the Souris Health Centre following her courageous battle with cancer.
Linda was one of six children born to Willis and Helen King. She was born on April 16, 1952. She lived in, and attended school in Souris. Linda worked in Souris, and Brandon prior to settling on the farm after her marriage to Walter on January 15, 1972. Linda and Walter welcomed their first son Brent William in 1972, and their second Brian Glen in 1974. This completed their family, and they lived and raised their boys on the farm.
Throughout Linda’s life she worked while raising her boys. Over the years she was involved with the Royal Purple, Legion Ladies Auxiliary, the curling club, the dart club, the horticultural society, and the Eastern Star.
Among Linda’s greatest accomplishments was her completion of Grade 12 in 2007. She then went on to become a certified Health Care Aide, and worked in both Souris and Hartney Personal Care Homes. Linda loved working with the elderly, and her patience, love, and compassion suited her role as a care giver perfectly. She loved her job, and worked at the Hartney Community Health Centre until her retirement.
The highlight of Linda’s life was the birth of her twin grandchildren, Janessa and Brayden. Grandma was very supportive in all the activities the kids were involved in. Hockey, ball, volleyball, swimming, school presentations, and everything in between. Linda was an avid hockey fan and attended and cheered on both Janessa and Brayden at all their hockey games. She loved the Winnipeg Jets and was able to fulfill one of her goals when she attended a game in Winnipeg with Brian.
Along with hockey, Linda loved crocheting, and enjoyed making baby blankets and sweaters for family and friends. Puzzle books and reading were also things she enjoyed in her spare time. Linda’s dogs were also a big part of her life. There was always one, sometimes two dogs at the farm. She loved them all, and enjoyed taking the little ones camping with her during the summer.
Linda is predeceased by her parents Willis and Helen King, her son Brent, step father Jack, brothers Dennis and Norman, sisters Elaine and Cathy, mother and father in law Amiel and Jeanne, and sister in law and brother in law Ed and Laura Chaban. Those left to mourn her passing are: her husband Walter, son Brian, daughter in law Angie, grandchildren Janessa and Brayden, brother Randy (Marnie) King, and his family, brother in law Ron Runions and his family, nephews and great nephews, neices and great neices, cousins, and many dear friends.
If so desired, donations can be made in Linda’s memory to Souris Palliative Care c/o Prairie Mountain Health Box 10 Souris, Manitoba R0K 2C0 or to Cancer Care Manitoba.
Together they lived in Winnipeg, Dauphin, Medicine Hat and Brandon with their 5 children. Adin was a Social Worker in Winnipeg, Dauphin and Medicine Hat and prior to that had been a minister following university.
In 1965 the family moved from Medicine Hat to Brandon so he could teach in the Social Services program at Assiniboine Community College. The program continued until the mid 80’s after which Adin retired.
He spent many years following his retirement occupying himself with fixing fences on the farm so the cattle didn’t roam too far. He would load up his truck in the morning and head off happily in search of any fence post that needed attention. He was meticulous and the fences were never in better shape than when he was ‘on duty’.
He also enjoyed singing and playing the bells in the choirs at First Presbyterian Church in Brandon as well as in a community choir. He loved classical music and attended many symphonies.
Adin and Irene left the farm to reside in Brandon in 2005 and Adin remained in his apartment until a hospital admission in March of this year and a subsequent move to personal care.
Adin had a wonderful sense of curiosity and a genuine interest in everything and everyone. He wanted to hear your story, eagerly asking questions and listening to your answers. Once he met you and heard your story he never forgot you or the details shared.
He had a great sense of humour and enjoyed a good laugh. His laugh was a constant as he lived his life to the fullest.
Adin was a kind and compassionate person. A friend of 40 years commented recently that Adin never had a bad word to say about anyone. This speaks to the fact that he accepted people as they were.
Adin was predeceased by his wife Irene, son Harvey, daughter Linda and granddaughter Stephanie.
He leaves to cherish a wonderful legacy, his sons Vernon (Shannon) and their children Jordan (Kristen), Sarah (Matt), Landan (Alma), April (Ralph) and Joel, son Randy (Lorrie) and their daughter Jenna (Devin) and son Terry, as well as granddaughter Carrie and 8 great grandchildren, his sisters Alma and Mary and their families.
There will be a private family interment at the Souris and Glenwood Cemetery. A come and go tea for family and friends was held at Memories Chapel on Monday October 7, 2019.
