John 11 (11) ... Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. (14) Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. (21) Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. (25) Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: (26) And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this? (27) She saith unto Him, Yea, Lord: I believe that Thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. (38) Jesus ... cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. (39) ... he [Lazarus] hath been dead four days. (41) Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. ... (43) ... He [Jesus] cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. (44) And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: ... (45) Then many of the Jews which ... had seen these things which Jesus did, believed on Him. KJV

A Family Album ~ Stories & Stones


Time fades memories and generations change with time: as one generation and each individual is a link to the last, they are also a link to the next. This Family Album is dedicated to preserving the memory of those who have been a part of the Bullis family so that those of the next generations might understand the heritage, times, and people of the previous generations. The Family Album is divided into Index Sections (Families, Descendants, Gazetteer, Obituaries) in which the family of William Bullers & Elizabeth Blake, their descendants & spouses, are listed by family relationship of individuals in birth order within generations. The Obituaries Index retains the family and relational context of the individuals whose memorials, photographs, and gravestones are presented here. May the memory of those held dear be kept to give comfort in their loss, to remember in their accomplishments, to share in their heritage, and to declare their testimonies of God's grace and salvation.

Part of the fascination in one generation searching to know of past generations is the finding, clue by clue, piece by piece of the puzzles. In July 2007, sister Anne Marie & brother Brian of Wolfe Island generations visited the Trinity Cemetery to photograph this aging, broken gravestone. A year later, brother Brian found the obituary in a collection at the Ontario Archives and passed along specifics! The Boise ID Library obtained copies of the transcribed notices from the Spokane WA Library ... those who left information to be found and all contributors in the finding are greatly appreciated for the part they shared in providing these pieces of the puzzle for this portrait.

The Late John Bullis ~ Emerson, Manitoba
[Friday] April 16, 1915

The death last Friday morning, April 9th, of John Bullis, another old-time resident of the Emerson district, was not unlooked for, as he had been gradually failing in health for a long time owing to a general breakdown. His age was 83 years, 4 months, and 4 days.

The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon and a large representation of the district followed the remains to Emerson cemetery. Rev A W Mayse was the officiating cleryman, and during the service an appropriate solo was rendered by Mr Phillips. Four sons - Joseph, Wm J, Jno J and B T - acted as pallbearers at the house. Deceased had been an ardent Odd Fellow of more than 30 years standing, having joined the local lodge on October 30th, 1883, and in 1908 he was the recipient of a Veteran's Jewel, signifying his 25th year in the Order, which token he prized very highly. Brethren joined the cortege en route to the cemetery and performed the last sad rites to a departed brother. Five sons are now members of the IOOF.

Mr Bullis was born on Wolfe Island, in the St Lawrence, Dec 5th, 1831. In early life he served his apprenticeship at the carpenter trade, which he followed for a number of years. He was married in 1858 to Elizabeth King Davis [Davis King]. In 1881 he came west to Emerson, settling in the Red River district. He moved into town with his family in 1901 and was a resident in Emerson for ten years. At the time of his death he was living with his son Joseph, where he and his now bereft partner had resided for the past four years.

Besides his widow, he is survived by six sons and two daughters, namely, Mrs H H Abbott and Robert, of Richard, Sask; Joseph, Bidwell T and Miss Gertrude, of Emerson; Wm J, of Weyburn, Sask; Matthew, of Sandstone, Minn, and Jno J, of St Paul.

The Death of Mrs J Bullis ~ Emerson, Manitoba
[no date-probably November 9, 1917 Friday]

On Thursday, Nov 1, the death of Mrs John Bullis occurred at the residence of her son, Mr Joseph Bullis. The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon last at 2 o'clock. She had lived to the ripe old age of 87, having been born in the year 1830 at Steuben, New York. She was of Welsh descent and during her last days her speech was largely in the language of her childhood. Much of her life was lived at Wolf Island near Kingston, Ont, at which place she was married to John Bullis sixty-four years ago, coming to Emerson in 1882 and has since that date lived in the town and district. Eight children, six boys and two girls, mourn her loss. Mrs Abbott and Robert, of Oldbury, Sask; John, of St Paul; Matthew, of Sandstone, Minn; William, of Weyburn, Sask; Joseph, Gertrude, and Bidwell, of Emerson.

The six sons were the pall bearers. This was the first time for nine years that the whole family had met together, and 14 years ago there was a family re-union when the parents celebrated their golden wedding. The service was conducted by the Rev G F Kaye at her late residence. By special request Mr Phillips rendered a solo entitled "Thy will be done," and Miss L Tandy officiated at the organ. Interment was made at the Emerson cemetery (*1). The deceased lady was a sister of Capt R [Robert] Davis, this city (*2).

Notes: John & Elizabeth were married in 1858, 59 yrs earlier, not 64 yrs. The Golden Wedding was 9 yrs earlier in 1908. The Bullis Family Reunion and the photograph was 14 yrs earlier in 1903. Recorded by Ruth Bullis Thayer in 1965 ~ Her last words were, "Dwy yn barod" (I am ready)

W J Bullis, Well Known Weyburn Resident, Dies
Succumbed On Monday to Lingering Illness - Came To West From Ontario Over Fifty Years Ago

The death occurred at his home in Weyburn at midnight Monday of William John Bullis, who, born in Ontario, had been a resident of Manitoba and Saskatchewan for more than fifty years. His demise followed a protracted illness from which he suffered a great deal.

The funeral service is being held this afternoon in Grace United Church, commencing at 2:30 o'clock. Rev W A Cameron, BA, will conduct the service, C E Cleland & Son having charge of the funeral arrangements. Interment will be made in Hillcrest cemetery at Weyburn. Masonic funeral rites will be carried out by Weyburn Lodge No 30, AF and AM at the graveside.

Born on Wolf Island, Thousand Isles, near Kingston, Ont, on February 3, 1862, the son of the late John Bullis and Elizabeth Bullis, the late Mr Bullis came west in 1881, settling at West Lynne (now West Emerson) Man. His first job in the west was transporting rails across the international boundary. Later he worked on the construction of the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway between Winnipeg and Brandon. He started farming for himself later and in 1888 married Helen Scott, daughter of Thomas [Scott] and Jean Cuthbertson of Emerson. On June 5 of this year Mr and Mrs Bullis celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary in Weyburn.

The deceased came to Weyburn in 1906 and homesteaded two miles north-west of Weyburn, later taking up residence in Weyburn with his family. He was bookeeper at Harvey & Porter's coal office and later worked in the same capacity for the old electric light company until the city took over this utility. He was the first secretary-treasurer of Weyburn RM No 67, a position which he held for eleven years. Some years later he developed diabetes, from which he suffered until his death.

He was an elder of Knox Presbyterian Church for a number of years and also treasurer for several years, serving also as secretary of the Sunday school. He helped, during his stay in Weyburn, to organize six rural telephone companies and served each as secretary-treasurer, being also secretary-treasurer of three rural school districts. Latterly he has served as secretary-treasurer of the Weyburn Municipal Cemetery board. He joined the United Church of Canada following church union. He was a member of the Masonic, IOOF and COF fraternal orders.

In 1923 the late Mr Bullis, together with his wife, went to London, Ont, to reside, but they returned to Weyburn in 1925 and have since lived here. Joseph Bullis and Miss Gertrude Bullis of Emerson, Man, visited their brother, William J Bullis, in Weyburn for several days prior to his death Monday night.

The late Mr Bullis is survived by his wife, one son, Sidney E Eullis of London, Ont, and four daughters, Mrs E Sanders of Midale, Mont, Mrs T R Williamson of Colgate, Mrs H Butters of Weyburn, and Mrs A McRae [MacRae] of Success.

Retired Banker Dies Saturday

Mathew Bullis, retired banker who since 1940 has made his home here with his daugther, Mrs Ray Harding, died Saturday morning in a local hospital. Born April 10, 1878 [1864] in Ontario, Can, Mr Bullis resided 55 years in Sandstone, Minn, before coming here. He is survived by his wife, Sarah; five daughters, Mrs Arthur Martin and Mrs Albert Jonson of Sandstone, Mrs A E Forstrom, Mrs Harding, both of Superior and Mrs Millard Garrison, Washington DC; two sons, Elmer, of Minneapolis, and Adrian of North Branch, Minn; a brother, Joseph, of Canada and another, T Bullis, of Rio Hondo Tex; a sister, Gertrude, of Canada.

M Bullis Is Laid to Rest Here Tuesday

Mathew Bullis, one of Pine county's oldest pioneers, passed away last Saturday in St Joseph's hospital in Superior, Wisconsin. For the past two years, he had suffered from a heart ailment, but up to his last illness he was enjoying fairly good health and only a few weeks ago visited his children at Sandstone and North Branch. Easter Sunday he became ill and two days later he was taken to St Joseph's hospital for treatment.

Mr Bullis was born April 10, 1864, on Wolfe Island, Lake Ontario, Canada. He was united in marriage to Sarah E Rennix in Superior, Wis, on July 18, 1889, and shortly thereafter settled in Sandstone, where they made their home for over fifty years. About two years ago they left Sandstone and went to live with a daughter, Mrs R E Harding in Superior, where they were living at the time of his death last Saturday.

Mr Bullis became the first railway agent for the Eastern Minnesota Railway in the Quarry City shortly before that railroad became a part of the Great Northern system. On September 1, 1894, he and his family went through the great Hinckley fire and after getting running orders to Superior for the No 3 passenger train on the Eastern Minnesota, he and his family, together with many others, were rescued from the Kettle river.

After the fire danger had passed, Mr Bullis returned to Sandstone where he held his job until 1902, when he and Fred L Dennie organized the Quarryman's State Bank as the first bank in Pine county. He served the institution as cashier until 1915. Later he was interested in several other banks in the county.

Mr Bullis served as a member of the school board for six years, during which time the large stone school was remodeled and rebuilt. He was trearsuer in the Town of Sandstone for 11 years and was member of the village council several years; four years as recorder and was also one of the trustees of said council. In a larger political field Mr Bullis had the honor of serving as county commissioner from 1910 to 1914.

Mr Bullis was a charter member of the Presbyterian church and was always one of its most ardent supporters. He was held in the very highest respect by all who knew him and all were very sorry to hear of his passing.

Mr & Mrs Bullis celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary on July 18, 1939, when all of the family and many others assembled to do them honor.

He leaves to mourn his loss his beloved wife, and seven children: Mrs Albert Johnson and Mrs Arthur Martin, both of Sandstone; Mrs Raymond Harding and Mrs A E Forstrom, both of Superior; Mrs Millard M Garrison of Washington, DC; Elmer Bullis of Minneapolis and Adrian Bullis of North Branch; three brothers, John J Bullis of St Paul, Joseph Bullis of Emerson, Manitoba, Canada, Thad Bullis of Rio Hondo, Texas, and a sister, Gertrude Bullis, of Emerson, Canada; seven grandchildren, Gayle, Sandra and Deedree Bullis, Marilyn and Audrey Forstrom; Millard Garrision III and Betty Lou Martin.

Funeral services were held at the Down's Funeral Home in Superior, Wis, Tuesday morning at 10:30, Rev Allen R Fredine officiating, after which services were held at the Congregational church at Sandstone at 2:30 pm, Rev Glenn R Albro officiating. Pall-bearers were Alex Kelly, John Forstrom, Dr H P Dredge, Jos H Klein, G K Feyma and James Tyre. Interment was made in the Spring Park Cemetery. The many friends of the family extend condolences in their bereavement.

Last Rites Held Sunday for Mrs Matthew Bullis

Mrs Matthew Bullis passed away Thursday, March 25, 1954, at her old home in Sandstone, which is now the residence of her daughter, Madaline, and her husband, Albert Johnson. Mrs Bullis was confined to her bed only a few days, but had been very feeble for several months. Pneumonia was the immediate cause of her death. She was 92 years, 3 months and 23 days of age.

Sarah Evelyn Rennix was born in Lurgan, County Down, Ireland, on December 2, 1861. She went to Emerson, Manitoba, to live with her sister, Mrs Spence, and there met Matthew Bullis, whom she married on July 18, 1889.

Elmer R Bullis, 74, 4254 Stevens Ave, Minneapolis, former resident of Sandstone, passed away last Thursday. Mr Bullis, son of the late Mr and Mrs Matt Bullis, was born at Sandstone May 15, 1890. He served as a Major in World War I and a Lt Colonel in World War II. He practiced law in Minneapolis many years and was an attorney for the Minneapolis Gas Co before retirement. He is survived by five sisters, (Daisy) Mrs Arthur Martin and (Madeline) [Madaline] Mrs Albert Johnson of Sandstone, (Lucie) Mrs Adrian Forstrom, Boulder City, Nev, (Grace) Mrs Raymond Harding, Superior, Wis, and (Lessie) Mrs Millard Garrison, Minneapolis; one brother, Judge A M Bullis of North Branch. His wife [Cora Ostrem Bullis] passed away four years ago. Services were held Monday at 11 am at Davies Mortuary, Minneapolis, and interment at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.

In Memoriam

Elmer R Bullis was born of English and Irish parentage, on May 15th, 1890, in the quarry town of Sandstone, in Pine County, Minnesota. As a boy of four years, he escaped the holocaust of the Hinckley fire by a narrow margin when his parents found refuge in the Kettle River, a mile away from their home. As a youth he worked in the quarry there, graduated from High School, and went on to the University of Minnesota where he entered the Law School. He had played the cornet in the local village band, and so went on to become a member of the University Band; he later became a member of the Minneapolis Apollo Club. He joined the Phi Kappa Sigma Law Fraternity, of which he was Secretary and Treasurer and later became president of the Alumni Association.

Shortly after admission to the Bar, he set up a law office, with Harold Rogers, who became District Judge in Minneapolis. At the outbreak of World War I, he entered the first Officers Training Camp at Fort Snelling (Minneapolis MN). He was commissioned as a lieutenant, and trained further at Camp Dodge in Iowa. He was [a Major] with M Company, 351st Infantry Regiment in France at the termination of the war. Upon his return he was employed with Drake-Ballard Company of Minneapolis for a number of years, and upon leaving his employment there, went into the Law Firm of Nichols, Nash, Farnand and Mullins.

When World War II threatened, he spent much time in the training of Home Guards in Minneapolis, and when the war broke out he reentered the service, training at Fort Benning in Georgia, and was commissioned as a Captain. Much of the time of World War II he spent in Chicago as Provost Marshall, where his responsibilities concerned the thousands of service men who came to Chicago on transfers and furloughs each weekend, and also had to do with prisoners of war in Camp McCoy, Wisconsin. He was discharged from service after termination of the war with permanent rank of Lieutenant-Colonel.

Upon his return to Minneapolis, he was employed as an attorney by the Minneapolis Gas Company and remained with them until retirement in 1955. He was widowed upon the death of his wife on February 1, 1961. During his retirement years he was interested in carrying on a little of his law practice from his home, and was actively engaged in probating an estate up until the day of his death. He passed peacefully away of heart failure on March 11th, 1965, and was interred at Fort Snelling Cemetery on March 15, 1965. He left a brother, Judge A M Bullis of North Branch, five sisters; Mrs M M Garrison of Minneapolis, Mrs Arthur Martin and Mrs Albert Johnson of Sandstone, Mrs Raymond Harding of Superior, Wisc, and Mrs A E Forstrom of Boulder City, Nevada.

Mr Bullis was a member of the Minnesota Historical Society of Minneapolis, of the Richfield American Legion Post No 435, of Phi Kappa Sigma Law Fraternity, and the Minnesota Bar Association.

written by Robert J Garrison

Lessie slipped away late in the evening of January 20, 1998, age 92, at Kirby Pines Manor, the nursing home that is part of the retirement community where she lived since moving to Tennessee in 1995. She received very good care from a dedicated and friendly staff at Kirby Pines Manor (Memphis TN).

I do not have to tell you that her death bears significance for the Bullis Family of Mat & Sarah which started with the birth of Elmer, well over a century ago, on May 15, 1890, in Sandstone, MN and ended with Lessie's death on January 20, 1998, in Memphis, TN.

Jan 26, 1998, was as beautiful as winter days can be in Washington DC. It was her wish to be buried beside our Dad at Arlington National Cemetery, a commitment Arlington made to her almost 44 years earlier. I will never forget that the sun shone on us as we listened to our friend, The Rev Barstad, remind us of her courageous life, of the tragedy she suffered, and her strength under adversity to keep her little family together. A picture of Mat & Sarah circa 1890 and her wedding ring were buried with her on a hill overlooking the city where life was good for her. Attending her at the graveside memorial service were her two sons with their wives, 3 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.

Thomas John PRITTIE

B.William(1)Sarah(1)Thomas(1)Edwin

Thomas J Prittie, 81, of Palmyra, died March 9, 2004. Tom is survived by his wife, Dixie; sons, Richard of Utah and John of Connecticut; cousins, June Harms of PA and Jane Kichline of FL.

He was born in Philadelphia to Edwin and Meta Thiry Prittie. After graduating from Abington High School, he began his college education at SUNY (State University of New York) Oswego. His College studies were interrupted by World War II. Tom enlisted in the Army and swerved as a Military Policeman in Europe.

After the war, Tom returned to Oswego, where he obtained his Bachelor's degree. At Oswego, he became national president of the Delta Kappa fraturnity and was inducted into the Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society. He did graduate work at Syracuse University and the University of Rochester. Tom retired from the Palmyra-Macedon School District where he was a respected educator.

(1980) "TJ - You will truly be missed! We will no longer hear in the hallways "Ha! Ha! Mr. Prittie, I'm wearing purple and you can't catch me!" or "Don't you dare tell Mr Prittie that it is my birthday today!" The sound of bagpipes will no longer resonate from his classroom. Even St Patrick's Day will not be the same - only fond memories of Mr Prittie wearing his orange tie with his matching orange socks. We will never forget that orange tie hanging in the trophy case. More seriously though, Mr Prittie will be remembered also as a compassionate, sensitive individual, who has dedicated his life to teaching. If anyone was in need of a friend, TJ's door was always open. Over the years, most of us have entered his room for some reassurance. The hallways, his classroom, the lunchroom and the faculty meetings will never be quite the same. Pal-Mac is indebted to you, Mr Prittie, for all that you have done for us. Thank you for your giving."

He was a member of the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars), Wayne County Historical Society, Sons of the Union Veterans, and Disabled American Veterans. He and his wife Dixie celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in November [2003].

Friends are invited to call Fri 2-4 and 7-9 pm at McGuire/Hargrave & Murphy Funeral Home, 123 E Jackson St, Palmyra. Services for Tom will be 10:30 am Sat, from the Funeral Home. Memorial contributions may be directed to the Palmyra Fire Dept, Oxygen Squad, Palmyra King's Daughters Free Library or Historic Palmyra. Interment at Palmyra Cemetery with full military honors. TAPS:

Day is done, gone the sun from the lake,
from the hill, from the sky.
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.
Thanks and praise for our days 'neath the sun,
'neath the stars, 'neath the sky.
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

Douglas Harold ASTON

B.William(9)John(2)WilliamJohn(4)Bessie

Doug was raised in Lloydminster, attended the University of Alberta, graduating in 1957 from the College of Pharmacy. He returned to join his father, Harold Aston, and Bob Baynton at Medical Hall Drugs, continuing the Aston pharmacy tradition which lasted 80 years until Doug sold the business in 1989. He was best known for his presence behind the prescription or camera counter at Medical Hall Drugs and in recent years at Charles Lamb Photography. Everyone knew that his love and knowledge of photography and cameras made him the expert whom they wanted to consult and while on his own vacations, he often taught people how to operate their camera equipment. During major community events, Doug's photography skills helped to chronicle and preserve memories.

While raising a family and running a successful business, Doug was extremely active in the community. He was an ardent Jaycee in his younger years and a proud Rotarian for 40 years. More recently, Doug's pride in Lloydminster's history led him to become an active member and volunteer at the Lloydminster Archives. He also volunteered at the Vic Juba Theater and was an involved member of the Grace United Church, serving on many committees. His altruism and presence will be missed by all who knew and worked with him. A beautiful tribute was delivered by Reverend Harold Martin, a close family friend and neighbour, relating many happy and humorous stories that family had shared, revolving around what a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather Doug had been. Many remarks centered around golf, one of Doug's major hobbies/obsessions and ended with a poem, "Doug's Life told in Poetic Golf Style."

Shirley and her family would like to extend thanks to many for their support and care during the unexpected loss. The entire family was overwhelmed by the outpouring of cards, donations, flowers, phone calls, emails, visits, and food from friends and the community as a whole. Thank you to all who helped during this difficult time. Words cannot express the gratitude that we all feel.

Dr Roy Allan MacRAE

B.William(9)John(2)WilliamJohn(5)Ellen

Dr Roy Allan MacRAE passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 10, 2009 surrounded by his family. Born in Vanguard, Saskatchewan on September 10, 1930, Roy spent much of his childhood moving around the province with his family. In 1954, he graduated with his degree in pharmacy from the University of Saskatoon. The next year, he married the love of his life, Kathleen Audna Stewart. Shortly after graduating, they moved to Calgary and welcomed a son in 1958 and a daughter in 1960. Roy then moved his family to Edmonton in 1963 to pursue dentistry. In 1966 he welcomed his second daughter.

He graduated in 1967 from the University of Alberta. After graduation, they moved back to Calgary where he began a devoted and dedicated dental practice that lasted for forty-one years, continuing right up to his passing. Aside from continuing to practice dentistry, Roy spent much of his spare time at his ranch with his wife up until her passing in 2007. In the past, he has been an accomplished trumpet, violin and bagpipe player and was a member of the Calgary Highlanders for a number of years. He was also a contributing member of the Masons and the Kiwanis Club. His recent hobbies included ship building, movie collecting, gardening, farming, bird watching and photography. Roy had a lively sense of humor and an infectious smile.

Roy was the son of Allan and Ellen Bullis (MacRAE) and husband to Kathleen Audna Stewart (MacRAE). He was a brother to David, Robert and Dorothy Jean, father to Allan (Rose), Deanne (Rick) and Susan (Jean Francois), grandfather to Katie, Curtis, Melinda (Rolland) and Bryan, and great-grandfather to Lucas.

Mrs Kathleen "Kay" A MacRae, beloved wife of Dr Roy A MacRae, passed away on Monday, March 19, 2007, at the age of 74 years. Kay was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan in 1932. Her family, including one sister, moved around Saskatchewan to various places as she was growing up as a result of her father's career as a Bank Manager for the Bank of Commerce. Her mother was a school teacher. Kay completed her Nursing Degree through the Saskatoon City Hospital with the class of 1954.

In 1954 she met her husband Roy who was finishing his pharmacy degree in Saskatoon. In 1955 they were married. Following their wedding, they moved to Calgary and then to Edmonton in 1963, while Roy completed his schooling to become a dentist. Eventually Kay and Roy settled in Calgary again with their three children. Kay worked as a nurse until her children were born, and then as an office manager for her husband for twenty-five years in his dental practice. She continued to be involved in the business until her passing. While Kay and Roy lived in Calgary, Kay's true home was 'the Ranch' a family owned ranch that she and her husband owned northwest of Calgary where they spent weekends, holidays, and free moments.

Kay was deeply loved and honoured by all that knew her. Kay had an unending smile, enormous generosity and a kind, beautiful heart. She was a profoundly strong woman with a courageous heart and spirit that endeared her to so many people. She loved animals, nature, music, poetry and computer games. In her early years, Kathleen was a trained and talented contralto singer who won many prizes and ribbons, too numerous to mention. She loved to sing for family and friends at weddings and other gatherings. Kay's truest love was for her family and she devoted her life to their well-being.

Kay is deeply loved and remembered by her husband Roy, her son Allan MacRae and wife Rose, her daughter Deanne Syryda and husband Rick, her dauther Susan MacRae and husband Jean Francois Roy, and her four grandchildren, Katie, Curtis, Melinda and Bryan; also fondly by her sister from Red Deer, Mary Cuthbertson and husband Jack and family.

Many kind thanks to Dr Simmons and staff at Unit 82 at the Rockyview General Hospital for their unbelievable knidness and care of her while in hospital. A celebration of Kay's Life will be held in the Chapel of MOUNTAIN VIEW FUNERAL HOME on Saturday, March 24, 2007 at 2:00 pm. If so desired, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Alberta Lung Association (PO Box 4500, Station South, Edmonthon, AB T6E 6K2). Arrangements entrusted to Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery, 17 Avenue SE at Garden Road (1.5 km east of 84 Street SE) Telephone: 403-272-555.

In the early 40's she was employed by Millard Berg Studio in Superior. On Jan 19, 1948 she married Arthur Gjertson and they moved to Minneapolis where they lived for 26 years. Her great love was music. She studied at the MacPhail Center for the Arts in Minneapolis and accompanied the Morris Park Fathersingers and also played the organ occasionally at their church in Minneapolis. Upon Arthur's retirement in 1974, they returned to Sandstone. She was a member of Sandstone United Church of Christ and was organist and pianist for 14 years and was a member of the Diaconate for six years, sang in the choir for eight years before her marriage and played the organ in Sunday School. She was very active in the Sandstone Art and History Club and compiled two local history books, 'More of the Sandstone Story' and 'The Quarry City WWII'.

written by Stephen Gjertson

Arthur Clarence Gjertson was the youngest of seven children born to Gust and Mary Gjertson of Sandstone, Minnesota. He was class president in his senior year and graduated from Sandstone High School in 1935, then went to work for Pine County attorney Albert Johnson, by whom he was employed for almost four years. He also worked at Klein's, 'America's Largest Small-Town Department Store'. In March of 1941 Arthur enlisted in the army and went to Fort Riley, Kansas. He served in the 14th United States Cavalry, which at that time patrolled the Arizona border between the United States and Mexico on horseback. Before they went to Europe all cavalry divisions were changed to armored and Art was Sergeant Major of the 14th Tank Battalion, 9th Armored Division, which was one of the units that captured the bridge at Remagen and made the first crossing of the Rhine. Art received the Bronze Star.

After the war ended Arthur returned to Sandstone. On June 19th, 1948 he married Betty Lou Martin and moved to Minneapolis, where he worked for the Veteran's Administration Center at Fort Snelling. Arthur loved to sing and was active in a local community theater group throughout the 1960's and 70's. In 1973, after 28 years with the Veteran's Administration, Arthur retired as Chief of the Mail and Services Section, Administrative Division. He and Betty bought three beautiful lots in Sandstone, built a house and returned to their home town. They attended the United Church of Christ, where Art served as Financial Secretary for 12 years. He was Adjutant of the Sandstone American Legion Post 151, life member of Sandstone VFW Post 3864 and Past Master and Secretary of Sandstone Masonic Lodge 234. Arthur was named Pine County Senior Citizen of the Year in 1995. Arthur was a member of the United States Horse Cavalry Association and Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge. Arthur and Betty were founding members of the Sandstone History Club and they did much research for the book 'Sandstone: The Quarry City.'

Arthur stayed in Sandstone after Betty passed away in 1992, but moved to the Minnesota Masonic Home in Bloomington, Minnesota in August 2003. He wanted to be remembered as a man who loved God, his country and his family. He is survived by two sons, Stephen (Patricia) and Robert (Cay) of Minneapolis; nine grandchildren, Stephanie, Philip, Andrew, Elizabeth, Daniel, Kathryn, Anna, Emily, Rebekah, and two great grandchildren, Hope and Ava.

(2007 June : North Branch MN) I was born on Oct 13, 1930 in North Branch, MN. My parents had moved there - my mother's home town - for my father to establish a law office. I went to school in North Branch, graduating from high school in 1948. I then attended U of M, Duluth to become an elementary teacher. I taught at first in Albert Lea, MN, then in [1954] Juneau, AK and Hydaburg, AK returning to Minnesota in 1959. Then taught in Moose Lake, MN and in the Stillwater District [East of Twin Cities]. I finished my teaching career in Ely, MN - making 31 years in all. I retired and came home to North Branch to stay with my mother as long as she lived, and then continued on in the old family home. I have enjoyed music, the marvels of nature, reading and some traveling, and visits with family and friends! I want to thank God and Jesus my Savior for provision and protection all the way! A Bible verse I've cherished is Isaiah 41:10 - signed Gayle Bullis

Gayle Adair Bullis, 83, a longtime resident of North Branch, Minnesota, died peacefully in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Thursday, Jan 23 2014. She is survived by her sisters, Sandy Wayne and Deedree Stukas, of Albuquerque; and her nephews, Bryan Wayne, Mark Wayne, Paul Stukas, and Michael Stukas, and niece Kirstin Fox. She was a member of North Branch Methodist Church.

Gayle was born Oct 13 1930. She was a 1948 graduate of North Branch High School. After receiving both her degree in education from the University of Minnesota in Duluth and Masters Degree from University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, she began her 30-plus year teaching career. She taught in Albert Lea MN, Juneau Alaska, Afton, Moose Lake, and Ely MN. As members of Gayle's family, we feel blessed to have been a part of her life. She was always one who used prayer and love as a guide. Gayle's ministry was service to others, and she received great joy in doing so. She loved to travel, play the piano/organ, garden and read.

A celebration of Gayle's life will be held in North Branch at a later date. Should family and friends desire, memorial contributions can be made to: Glad Tidings Arctic Mission Society, Joy Junction (Albuquerque NM), or the Billy Graham Association. ECM Post Review

with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the
dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the
Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

Jamie Everard BULLIS

(B)William(9)John(5)JohnJay(2)Everard(1)JohnJay2nd(1)David
written by Barbara Boling Bullis

Jamie Everard Bullis, 28, died unexpectedly on December 22 in San Francisco. Jamie was born April 1, 1980, in Wenatchee, Wash., to David John Bullis and Barbara Lyn Boling Bullis.

Jamie attended Lake Hazel Middle and Meridian High. Jamie began traveling at an early age by hopping freight trains which took him to almost every state where he made numerous friends during these adventures. Jamie's 6' 5" frame stood out wherever he went. Jamie looked out for his friends and they felt protected by him. He spent a lot of time in Portland and San Francisco; both cities will be holding memorial services for him.

It is only because of our prayers that surrounded him each day along with the watchful eye of the God who 'never lets go,' that we believe Jamie is in heaven with his Grandpa Boling. Jamie is survived by his father David -Longview, Wash.; mother, Barbara -Meridian, Idaho; brothers Jonathan Bullis (Leeny Bullis) and Ryan Bullis (LaDonna Bullis); sister Nadra White -Meridian, Idaho; nieces and nephews Makayla, Bryonna, Matthew and Emma. Also close friends Kolby Claycomb and TJ Amyx. He is preceded in death by his grandpa, Charles Boling.

Jamie will long be remembered for the way he loved his friends and family. He had integrity and was brave, always standing up for anyone he loved and would even die for them if necessary. He will be in our hearts forever. Memorial services will be held at Capital Christian Center, Friday, January 2nd at 11 a.m.

Note: Paternal grandfather, John Jay 2nd (Jack) Bullis, grandmother Carolyn Connery Bullis, both of WA.
