Mauseth Ervin - orig photoErvin Eugene Mauseth

August 24, 1928 – April 07, 2013

"Hard working hands laid to rest."

Ervin Mauseth passed away on April 07, 2013 at the Carman Memorial Hospital at the age of 84 with his daughter Pat by his side. Ervin was born at Winnipeg Grace Hospital on August 24, 1928 the eldest child of the late Eugene and Marie (Amenda) Mauseth.

Ervin spent his early years growing up and attending school in Brunkild, Manitoba. Helping with work on the family farm, he grew to love and appreciate the land. In 1949, he moved with his family to what became known as the Mauseth farm east of Homewood.

During his life on the farm, he met and married Lillie Liesch. Together they raised two daughters, Erlin and Pat. Ervin was a gifted musician, something he inherited from his father, and was well known in the Sperling, Brunkild, and Carman communities for his guitar playing and singing.

Ervin was an honest man who held the virtue that a man is only as good as his word. When he made you a promise, he kept it. When he shook your hand, you knew you had a deal.

Many life-long friends were formed in Brunkild and later Sperling. When the crops were in, and sometimes when they weren't, you could find Ervin and his buddies sharing a Shea's Select, a cigarette, and a song or two in the Sperling Hotel.

After Ervin stopped actively farming and rented out his land, he worked for Aubin Nurseries in Carman for ten years. You could take the man off the farm, but you can't take the farm out of the man. When he retired from Aubin's, his green thumb continued to shine in his garden, and many neighbours and friends reaped the benefits of his pumpkins and other vegetables.

Ervin was predeceased by his wife Lillie in 2005, but remained at the home place until 2010 when he sold the farm that he had spent 60 plus years of his life. After Lillie passed away, Ervin had the great fortune of rekindling a love that stood the test of time. Yvonne (Rose) McCrimmon was a part of Ervin's life in the early years, and when both lost their respective spouses, found each other again.

Predeceased by his sister Rose Paul, Ervin is survived by his sisters, Frances Nielsen along with her husband Bill; Phyllis Huston, and their families. Ervin is survived by his children Erlin and Sam Zurawski, Pat and Albert Penner, step-children Ted and Wendy Bartlett, Sharon and Glen Hall, Debby and Ray Hall, and Wendy and Lawrence Buhr, numerous beloved grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Ervin is also survived by Yvonne McCrimmon, her sons Darcy and Brian, and their respective families.

A celebration of Ervin's life and remembrance will take place on Saturday, April 13 at the Carman Legion from 2-4:00 p.m. Flowers gratefully declined. Donations in Ervin's memory may be made to the Carman Palliative Care Unit, Carman Memorial Hospital.
