Russ Langseth was born at Dauphin, MB on July 27, 1932. He grew up on the family farm near Glenella, MB where he attended school to Grade 11. Russ took his Grade 12 at United College in Winnipeg after which he studied Pharmacy at the University of Manitoba. Russ graduated in 1958 and married Shirley Nisbet of Graysville. He worked at a pharmacy in Brandon until 1965 when he purchased the pharmacy from Jack Strong and moved to Manitou with his wife and two little girls, Sandra and Donna. Loree and Jim were added to the family while in Manitou.
Russ worked six days a week and often had call backs to the store when people were in need. He worked with the help of many capable staff members until he sold his business in 1994.
In 1993 Russ married Edith (nee Storey) Baloun and three step sons along with their spouses and families became his extended family.
Russ had three daughters; Sandra (Bob) Hirschfeldt, Donna (Martial) Hebert, Loree Laramee and son Jim Langseth and 8 grandchildren.
His extended family included Ray (Gail), Grant (Kathy), Dale (Angie) and nine grandchildren and two great granddaughters.
Russ was predeceased by his parents Fritz and Gladys and his three siblings plus one grandchild.
Russ had little time for recreation during his working years but did enjoy some curling and golfing and working with sports teams. He was fascinated with flying and obtained his private pilot’s licence in the late 60’s. He owned a share in an airplane and was happy in the sky. After retirement, he and Edith did some traveling and enjoyed having time for leisure activities. Russ enjoyed gardening and the flowers. The lawn was important to him and had to be cut just so. He was as meticulous at transplanting using a measuring tape and markers before setting a plant. This exactness in his nature made him the wonderful pharmacist he was.
Russ passed away August 13, 2018 at the Pembina Manitou Health Centre with family at his side.
