Brad Buster - orig photoLois Elizabeth Brad – November 1st 1925 – February 6th 2013

Surrounded by her loving husband Buster and son Ron, Lois passed peacefully into final rest at their home in Carman MB. Lois was the 6th daughter of Alfred and Etta Lints, and was raised on a farm two miles north of Decker Manitoba. Lois was a very happy little girl, especially when helping her dad do the farm chores. She had her own special horse, which she had trained to do many tricks.

Lois had completed all of her schooling at the Decker School. She excelled in sports and music, and had won many ribbons. She played the guitar, banjo, and organ. When the lints girls got their orchestra together, she would play the organ for them.

Lois married Buster Brad of Isabella Manitoba on January 26th, 1945, just before Buster went off to war overseas. Buster and Lois were married for 68 years. When Buster came home he took his jewelers course and bought the jewellery store in Carman. There they made their home and raised two sons, Ron and Fred.

Lois worked alongside Buster in their jewellery business, and loved working there. She became a great leader in her Church as well. She enjoyed playing her organ and would entertain the store customers at Christmas and Easter time. Lois loved the home they were in and cherished her garden and flowers. She enjoyed the many birds, squirrels and chipmunks that would live around their front steps, making sure they were always fed. “These are Gods Little creatures” she would always say.

Buster loved to play hockey and their hockey team used to travel many miles to other rinks in a big truck with a canvas tarp over top and a little stove in one corner. He said “it was lots of fun”

Buster also worked in the Isabella store with his Dad. Buster joined the Canadian Army in 1944 and at this time Lois was his sweetheart and they were married in 1945. After his training he was sent overseas for duty in Holland, but while there he signed up for the Pacific and in August 1945 was sent home for more training in the USA. While he was on leave Japan surrendered and was not long before he got discharged from the forces.

Buster took his Jewelers course in Winnipeg and following that Buster and Lois moved to Brandon and Buster worked for Wightman Jeweler Company. In 1961 Buster and Lois moved to Carman and bought the Jewelry store there. Buster and Lois worked side by side in the Jewelry business for many years. They bought a new home and have lived in it many years. They loved their home, garden and beautiful flowers. Buster enjoyed growing tomato plants and always supplied his neighbors with big ripe tomatoes. They loved to watch the many birds, squirrels and a little tame chipmunk that lived under their front step. They made sure their little animals were always fed and birdfeeders filled. In 1998 Lois and Buster were awarded the Best Yard of the month by the Carman Chamber of Commerce.

Buster loved to golf and enjoyed sports of all kinds. Lois loved her choir work and they both enjoyed their church and did a lot of volunteer work.

Their son, Fred, and his wife Mary live in Barrhead Alberta. He has just retired from the Jewelry business. Their son, Ron and wife Margaret are retired and live in Carman but were busy looking after their Mon and Dad in their later years. Buster and Lois always said “We are looked after like a King and Queen.”

His broken heart and the loss of his soul mate, Lois, two and a half months prior was too much for him to bear. Buster and Lois were married 68 years on January 26, 2013.
