On December 24th, 2013, Harry passed away at Boyne Lodge in Carman. He will be sadly missed by his wife Audrey (nee Smith) of Winnpeg, daughter Verna (Peter MacQuarrie) of Calgary, son Don of Fannystelle, daughter Glenda of Winnipeg, sister Wilma Miller of East Lansing, Michigan and his brothers-in-law Don Murray of Palatine, Illinois, Howard (Louise) Smith of Dugald, and Cliff Smith of Winnipeg. He was predeceased by his parents Dick and Laura and his sister Lois. Harry was born on November 8, 1927 in Fannystelle, Manitoba.

He attended school in Fannystelle and Lord Selkirk School in Winnipeg. Harry and Audrey were married on February 5, 1955. Dad was the 3rd generation of the Stevens family to serve the surrounding communities by operating the lumberyard in Fannystelle. He was very strong and hard-working and many have stories of Harry and Audrey delivering building supplies late into the evening. Dad loved driving whether it was a long car ride on a long weekend or a bumpy ride in the truck. He also had a fantastic sense of humor which continued well into his journey with Alzheimer’s Disease. Sincere thanks to the absolutely amazing staff and volunteers at Boyne Lodge, Carman Hospital, St. Claude Health District, and Carman Palliative Care. We will forever be grateful.

A Memorial Service will be held at the Elm Creek Community Hall on Thursday, January 2, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Harold Kenyon officiating. If friends so wish, donations may be made in Harry’s memory to Boyne Lodge, Box 910, Carman, MB, R0G 0J0, the Alzheimer’s Society of Manitoba, 10 – 120 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 4G2 or a charity of one’s choice.
