Hi Judy! I don't know that I have the right family but the Manitoba connection must have caught my eye some time ago. I have an obituary from 1989 for a Howard Wardle, beloved husband of Mary, died at teh Grace Hospital in Winnipeg on Wednesday, November 29, 1989. He was born in Virden on January 31, 1897. Mary (nee McNeill) and he were married on Dec. 18, 1929 and spent most of their time in Virden until moving to Winnipeg in in 1984 to be near to their older daughter. His parents were Wilmot and mary, brother Gordon, and sisters Myrtle (Percy) Townson, Irene (Cle) Mitchell, and Ida Williams. Two daughters, Marion Chegus (Paul)of Winnipeg and Horn of Souris. Grandchildren Bruce (Patricia) Chegus and Rhonda (Clive) Horliefson all of Winnipeg, Allan (Nancy) Chegus of St. Albert, Alberta, Doug (Liz) Horn of Alcona, Ontario and Kathy Horn of Brandon. There are 8 great grandchildren. The funeral home was Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th St. Brandon with internment in Rosewood Memorial Gardens.
Hope this is the family that you were looking for and that this is of some help to you. Jane
