Passed away at the Glenboro Health Centre on Saturday July 14, 2012 at the age of 81 years, George Edward Notman, of Glenboro MB.
George was born at Hilton, MB, on January 3, 1931 to John & Helen Notman. He went to school at Stockton, and then in grade 9 he had a little conflict of right and wrong with him being right in the right, however even after the teacher told him he was right it did no good, he had made up his mind and that ended schooling. He worked at the Treesbank ferry but that was not what he liked doing, so he helped out on the family farm and received a ¼ section in the R.M of Strathcona for his labors. He also worked for the RM of South Cypress. After moving into Glenboro, George was often seen driving his blue car and pulling the trailer loaded with his lawn mowers, garden tiller, rakes and shovels. This was his greatest fulfillment to do some form of work for the people in town, whether it be summer or winter you would see George busy doing something. When he found some extra time he would help out at the local race track, as he loved to jog the race horses. George was one who kept to himself. He was one who would not listen to the radio and drive at the same time, his enjoyment was his work and his gardening. He was a meat and potato's kind of guy, and he did enjoy that piece of pie On May 29th George had surgery in Brandon, and then again on June 7th. When he could he would come home for the day and have a good sleep and then head back to the hospital for the night. He said, “There is nothing like your own bed to have a good rest in.”
George leaves to mourn his passing his sister Verna Notman of Glenboro as well as extended relatives & many friends. George was predeceased by his father John (1969) & mother Helen, nee Leppington (1986), brother Bill (1992), sister Dorothy Lockhart (2010) & by twin sister & brother Emily & Frankie in infancy (1924).
