Cyril John Kingsland
Passed on October 7, 2018
August 20, 1947 – October 7, 2018 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our brother John after a lengthy battle with cancer at Stonewall Hospital. John was predeceased by his parents Cyril and Muriel Kingsland and brother-in-law Brian Diggle. Left to mourn his passing are his siblings Gail Diggle of Mississauga, Ontario; Alice Thompson (Carl); Arlene Smith (Ian); Lynda Marshall (Stuart); Ken Kingsland (Chris); Keith Kingsland (Arlene) and Gary Kingsland (Karen) and many nieces and nephews. John was born in Winnipeg where he lived until near retirement at the Grace Hospital working in the kitchen area and delivering trays to patients. A few years prior to retirement he moved to the family farm in Oakpoint, Manitoba where he watched over the beloved cattle. The next phase of his life took him to Lundar, Manitoba where he enjoyed many local activities in the community. Our sincere thanks to the doctors and nurses at Cancer Care, 7- Oaks, Eriksdale, and Stonewall Hospitals. Also to the community Service coordinators, home care staff and the senior home staff in Lundar. A private family interment will be held. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, a contribution can be made to the New Horizons Club in Lundar. Box 695, Lundar, Manitoba, R0C 1Y0.
I worked with John for many years at the Grace Hospital. He was a very kind man and a hard worker. So sorry for your loss.
