RONALD EARL MATTHEWSON (published on September 27, 2008)

RONALD EARL MATTHEWSON It is with deep sadness that the Matthewson Family announces the passing of Ronald Earl on September 26, 2008 at the St. Boniface Hospital. Ron was born February 29, 1916 in Stonewall, Manitoba. He grew up there with his sister and six brothers. He came to Winnipeg at the age of 18 and was employed at Canada Packers for 47 years. He began as a plant worker and completed his career as the plant superintendent. He was predeceased by his wife Jessie in 1998. He is survived by his children, John (Gail), Heather, Mark (Jeanne) and his three grandsons, Jesse, Shane and Graeme. A thank you goes out to his longtime friend Frank Melia. At Ron's request, cremation has already taken place followed by a private family service. The family wishes to thank CancerCare Manitoba, the services provided by Home Care and the doctors and staff of the St. Boniface Hospital for their compassion and care. Ron will always be remembered for the support and care he gave to his family and to his community. He was a proud Manitoban. His honesty and dependability were well known by everyone.
