BALJENNIE ‑ Sympathy goes to the Doris Wilson families of Saskatoon and Spinney Hill on the recent passing of Doris (Owen). She attended Spinney Hill School for most of her schooling. She met George Wilson, a mail delivery man for Canada Post in Saskatoon and they married in 1966.
Doris loved her vegetables and flowers, so she had a garden and a little greenhouse in their backyard. Her operation soon expanded and was in need of more room. They purchased Hi-Way Greenhouse in Saskatoon in 1975. They branched out into selling bedding plants, shrubs, garden supplies and seeds.
They had a family of three children, two sons and a daughter. They were married for 53 years when George passed away in December of 2019. The greenhouse business kept on going and was later taken over by her family.
Funeral services will be held later in Saskatoon.
Sympathy to the Laycock families of the Battlefords and Eagle Hills area on the passing of Arvid Laycock at the age of 83. Arvid is formerly from Eagle Hills where he operated a farm. He also worked as a butcher of a big store in North Battleford. They had a family of two sons, Tim and Tony. Our youngest son, Glen, was close friends with Tim when they went to school together in Battleford. The funeral is to be held at a later date.
It is calving season for the cattle producers and the little fellows can be seen scampering about in the feed yards.
Return of geese and crows are other signs that spring has arrived. And of course, the warmer weather brings out the gophers.
Some farmers are having problems with deer, elk and moose damaging cattle feed right inside fenced feed yards. We are getting more moose about and they are coming onto the highways and roads. They can do extensive damage to vehicles if they are hit.
Happy spring, to my readers.
