     The following biographical information was presented in a eulogy by Lauren Hume, 11 December 2007 (reproduced with permission):
Janet Langdale Moffat Hume was born at Frobisher on May 20, 1911. Her parents Alfred Moffat and Myrtle White had both moved to Saskatchewan from Ontario, they met in Moose Jaw, married and went farming near Frobisher. Janet was the eldest of 5 children, Janet, Annie, Clara, Herbert and Graeme. All of Janet's siblings have predeceased her.

She grew up on the farm and went by buggy to town to school. The horse would be put in the livery stable and she told of having hot noon lunches at her aunt's house in Frobisher. For high school she took the train to Oxbow and then went on to normal school to become a teacher.

Aunt Janet became a school teacher. She taught during the 1930 depression. Many of the small school districts could not afford to pay teachers during the depression and gave them promissory notes. I remember her telling me that she did not get full paid for her years teaching until nearly 1960. She taught in a number of country schools. A school near Gainsbough, one near Filmore, the South Arcola school and Dalesboro School.

My mother remembers having Miss Moffat as her grade 1 and 2 teacher. There was no nonsense in her classroom!! It was in Dalesboro that she met Elmer Hume, they were married on Oct. 24, 1940.

She told me about taking the train to Regina for their honeymoon and using their wedding money to buy and ship home some 2nd hand furniture. They started their married life in what was know of as the Old Cunningham place. It was cold and small. It had not been lived in for several years before they moved in and they found families of mice had taken over the attic. The old house was the scene of one of her most dramatic stories, a skunk got into the house and Uncle Elmer shot it, in the house. They lived with that smell every time it rained for many years. She also told of her shock when she found a mouse floating on the top of her cream that she had planned to send to town to the Carlyle Creamery. I think the pigs ate well that night. It was not until 1952 that they built and moved into a new house.

She always said her brothers were great teasers and like brothers knew exactly how to annoy their sister Janet. My father remembers them teasing her and at their wedding, telling Elmer that he was in for some trouble now. Another story that is told is of the visit of her younger brother Herb to the farm. When he was asked if he wanted more tea, he said no thank-you, he would just have some of that milk, and reached over and poured the contents of the cream pitcher into his cup and drank it. This did not go over well with my frugal Aunt.

When moving Aunt Janet to the nursing home I found her music certificates showing that she had taken her Grade 10 Conservatory exams. She played the pump organ at the Dalesboro United Church for many years. I noticed that Uncle Elmer always opened and set up the organ for her and eventually learned why. One memorable Sunday morning she opened the keyboard cover to find MICE had made their home on the keyboard. This was before women carried an emergency supply of anti-bacterial wet wipes in their purse. The Dalesboro United Church did not have running water. She had no choice but to play the organ anyway knowing that mice had been running over the keys she was touching.

During the years that they farmed, Janet would grow a large garden and can for the winter food supply. She baked bread, drove a tractor and kept her house dirt and mouse free. She was involved with the Dalesboro UCW and held the position of treasurer for many years. She was a very capable seamstress and sewed for herself, Elmer and other people in the area. She enjoyed reading and playing word games such as Scrabble. The Scrabble dictionary was a well thumbed book in her home.

She and Elmer enjoyed traveling and went to Europe several times and a road trip in their RV to Alaska. We got to enjoy their travels through the many slides that they took and enjoyed sharing with friends and family. Janet and Elmer like to go to visit relatives in Ontario. Janet's best friend was her sister Annie who lived in Hagersville, Ontario.

In 1979 they bought a house in Carlyle and moved into town. Janet became involved with the large project of typing and editing the Carlyle History book. She and Elmer also put together a book about the history of the Dalesboro District that they called, Footprints in the Sands of Time. They were involved with the Seniors Centre and were both on the Museum board for some time. In Carlyle they attended the Community Christian Church and Janet played the organ and piano there.

Elmer died of bone cancer in 1996 at the age of 85. Aunt Janet cared for him past the time she really could, as they wanted to stay together in their own home for as long as possible. After he was put into palliative care at the Moose Mountain nursing home, Janet would be there to see him every day.

About 2 years after his death she decided to move into the Heritage Court. She lived there until her move into the Moose Mountain nursing home in July of 1994 [this should probably read 2004 - Rick Moffat]. A few months after her move she fell and broke her hip. She spent the rest of her life in a wheelchair. In her last years she seemed to spend much of her time in spirit with her mother, sister Annie and Elmer. On Dec 4, 2007, she slipped quietly away in her sleep to join them.

We are left with memories of a strong, intelligent capable woman who lived with the spirit of "making do". Her eco-footprint on the planet was gentle.14

    Yes, I do remember Heather, we used to visit her and her Mom and Dad whenever we made a trip down east, I vaguely remember their big old brick farm house. I have lost all touch with any of the Moffat relatives down east. Nice to hear that you haven’t.

    You have let yourself in for quite a story when you start looking at Mom’s family so here goes. I will try to answer all the questions.

    James Hamiltons 1871-1952 Born May 7 in County Tyrone, Ireland, died June 8, 1953 married Elizabeth Smith born Jan 16,1878-died Jan. 23,1933

    Children are:

    Robert Hamilton born June 12, 1902 died of blood poison May 20, 1920

    Marguerite Hamilton April 5,1904-died March 4,2002

    John Hamilton March 23,1906-died May 24,1972

    Shirley Hamilton Jan 15,1908-died Jan. 11,2010

    William Hamilton Feb. 11,1910-died Oct. 10,1992

    Alexander Hamilton born Jan. 18,1912-died Feb. 10,1969

    Charles Hamilton born July 15,1914-died in 2000

    Mary Hamilton born July 15,1914-1937 Charles and Mary were twins and were born in Australia

    Edgarena Hamilton born Nov. 3,1916-2013

    Doris Hamilton Aug. 26,1919-

    Jean Hamilton 1922- March 22 birthdate

    Auntie Jean is the only sibling still living, she is in North Bay and is doing very well, still in her own home.

    Rena’s full name was Edgarena and she was named after her Mother’s youngest brother who died shortly after the battle of Vimy Ridge. It seems he survived that battle and was reassigned to a French battalion. We tried to find out more but that is all I know.

    Uncle Charlie was the one who had a water drilling company and they touched a power line, a couple died and he had very serious injuries.

    Part of the confusion is probably because Mom’s first husband was Ernie Hamilton, Jean’s Dad, she married a cousin and her name remained the same. The story about them moving with all their belongings on a truck was Ernie and Mom and Jean, Ernie had rheumatic fever and never recovered completely, they had nothing and part of the reason he died so young was because he went back to work way before he should have to support his family. They were moving Radisson for a job and I believe it was somewhere around Borden. The story went that they were not going to get to Radisson before dark so they stopped and took the bed off the back of the truck and slept there that night. Jean would likely have only been a few months old. Mom has quite a life story.

    Ernie Hamilton born Feb. 24, 1914, died Nov. 1941, Mom and Ernie were married Dec. 19, 1938

    I don’t have all the dates for births and deaths, while I am going through things I will see if I can find them. I found a few more dates but as in all things the more you look the more questions as now I have dates that are not the same, I have given the ones I have to the best of my knowledge.

    I am to be in Saskatoon for Christmas and some of us will be back here after, I am starting some renos in my place so everyone will be helping me move out furniture, etc., very exciting but it makes my head spin trying to think of how I will manage it all.

    I am glad to hear you are managing the symptoms from your chemo, I remember them telling us that they are so much better able to do that now. 

    It has been quite a year for you both. I am sending my best wishes for Christmas and all the best things in the new year.

    

    Here is a picture taken last fall, we walk each fall to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and this was our group, Bev’s sister Drena and her daughter Krysta also walked with us. 

    I think of you often, let me know if there is anything else that I can help out with.

    Love, Pat

    I don’t know if you ever met Heather Best, daughter of Roy Best and Jessie Walkey. Her husband, Gerry Mattinson is as busy with genealogy as I am and has been sending me a constant stream of new data and sources. The other day he sent a note about your Mom because he was trying to sort out her maiden name. He pointed out that her family was enumerated twice in the 1911 census, and not all of the answers were the same!
    
    He also included a link(www.carlyleobserver.com/obituaries/rena-burton-1.1487298)to your Aunt Rena’s obituary, which I had not seen before. The picture sure looked like your Mom!
    
    That got me looking at the 1921 census to see if I could fit Rena and Jean into the picture. I believe that Rena was enumerated as Lorena in 1921, but don’t see Jean, unless she was baby Doris. I remember meeting both of them at your 40thAnniversary celebration. I wish there was another reason for a gathering like that. We Moffat’s don’t see enough of each other.
    
    Check out your mom’s page on WeRelate (http://www.werelate.org/wiki/…) to see the census details.
    
    I know very little (try nothing) about Ernie Hamilton so I was wondering if you could fill in a few details. I think I remember he was electrocuted when equipment touched a power line. I also remember your Mom telling us about one time when they had all their belongings in the back of their truck and they were moving north somewhere. It became late and they stopped near the Borden Bridge (maybe) set up the bed and camped for the night. Jean was along for that adventure.
    
    Anyway, if you happen to have a birthday book that includes dates of birth and maybe deaths of Aunt Shirley’s siblings, I would incorporate them into my database. Just a small task to fit in between pageants, cookies, dinners and celebrations.
    
    I had my first chemo on Monday and by Tuesday and Wednesday I was pretty nauseous, but no other side effects. Carole got my meds on a good routine by Thursday and today I am feeling normal.
    
    Wishing you the best this Christmas season. I know you will have a wonderful time with the family.
