George “Blaine” Jamieson was born February 28, 1949 to Goldie & Clara Jamieson in Cabri, SK. He attended school in Cabri and started farming and ranching with his dad right after his graduation in 1967. In the winter of 1967/1968 he took a welding course in Moose Jaw, SK. On October 27, 1973 Blaine married Gayle Sletten of Hazlet, SK. They bought Peter Hubert’s house and moved it out to the George Jamieson farm (12-19-19) SW of Cabri.
Their first son, Jason Blaine, was born in April 1975, Dean James joined the family May 1976, and their daughter, Janelle Elaine, completed the family in April 1980. Blaine loved spending time with his grandchildren, you could find him taking them for quad rides, riding in the tractor to feed the cows, pushing them on the swing, or just sitting in his lap. He also liked to tease them, when they looked up at him he had that little smirk.
Blaine was a man that liked to work with his hands — whether it was leather work, welding, or carpentry. He was also very athletic — he enjoyed skiing, water skiing, curling, and hockey — but he was very modest, and would never admit to the credit that was given to him. Blaine caught the travel bug after his first trip to Maui, he looked forward to that trip every year and added days on to his stay each trip. Who knew that the long sleeves, jeans, and cowboy boot wearing farmer would trade that all in for shorts and sandals. Blaine’s health issues began in the summer of 2012, he fought hard to give his family six more years with him.
The Celebration of Life for Blaine Jamieson was held on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at 2:00 pm from the Cabri Community Hall, Cabri, SK with Deacon David Hagel officiating.
