MORRIS (MOE) CARTMAN (published on March 15, 2005)

MORRIS (MOE) CARTMAN Peacefully, on March 13, 2005 Morris Moe Cartman passed away at the Lions Prairie Manor at the age of 74 years. Moe was predeceased by his beloved wife Lorraine (1992); brothers, Melvin, Hughie, Frank, Allan and sister Ada MacIntosh. He is lovingly remembered by daughter Karen (Trevor Found) of Portage la Prairie; sons, John (Bev) Cartman of Carman, Bradley of Winnipeg, and son-in-law Gump Wiebe of Portage la Prairie; his grandchildren, Stephanie, Mike, and Ashley. He also leaves behind his siblings, Delores (Norman) Kaminsky of Winnipeg, and Edna Cathcart of Winnipeg, and many nieces and nephews. Moe was born on October 30, 1930 in Portage la Prairie, and started working at Vopni Press as a carrier and worked his way up to the Linotype machine. After a number of years he was offered head of production. Then came the opportunity of being a Sports Editor after complaining he could do a better job. He showed Portage the importance of sports right up till the year his wife Lorraine passed away in 1992. He did continue to keep Portage informed though through his Moe's Mumblings in the Shopper paper. On October 13, 1956 Moe married the love of his life Lorraine Johnson. They lived in Portage all through their marriage which produced three children. His favourite daughter Karen, John and Brad. Moe was very proud of John's golfing abilities and for his writing. Moe came across as grumpy but had a heart of gold. He was not the most patient man, if he was scheduled to take a picture at 7:00 p.m. and the team wasn't ready, he left and the picture would not be taken. He participated in curling, baseball in his younger years and enjoyed golf and fishing later in life. Many times a dollar was passed among family members through the cribbage games that went on. You weren't even in the door and he was shuffling the cards. One of Moe's favourite times was going to the Terries games. He had a great love for them. He would be offered tickets to the Winnipeg Jets games and would always say why when I can get better hockey here at home. Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, March 17 at 1:00 p.m. at the Centennial Arena Rink, 390 1st Street NW, in Portage la Prairie. As expressions of sympathy, if friends so wish, donations may be made in Moe's memory to the Central Plains Cancer Care Services, 318 Saskatchewan Ave. E., Portage la Prairie, MB, R1N OK8 or to Portage Terriers, P.O. Box 331, Portage la Prairie, MB, R1N 3B2. A tree will be planted and cared for in memory of Moe by McKenzies Portage Funeral Chapel who are in care of arrangements. 857-4021
