The Choir Director

Jean Lawson







"Growing up in Minnedosa, Manitoba I was immersed in music, both at home and in the United Church.  I first sang in the Junior Choir comprised of 60 members ranging from grades 6 - 12. We performed an anthem in Sunday school every week and in church once in a while.  We also travelled for festivals and put on a concert each year.  I began accompanying the group in Grade 9 and went on into the Senior Choir later in high school.  I was the pianist for many cantatas and concerts during those years and it set the stage for a career in music. 

With a Music Education degree and a year of teaching under my belt, I was married and moved to Killarney.  After many years raising a family and teaching, the opportunity to take over leadership of the Killarney United Church choir presented itself' in the fall of 2012. I am very fortunate to have 25 singers in the choir as well as some wonderful instrumentalists.  We are able to provide a variety of music for Worship services."

The Organist

Glenda Archibald







“I have been happily married to my husband Kevin for almost 35 years. We have 3 grown children: Kristin married to Brian Hayward live in Winnipeg with our adorable grandson, Taylor, who is 2 years old. Marina is married to Connor Kroeker and they live close by in Boissevain. Our son Cory farms with us and drives a winch truck in the Saskatchewan oil patch during the winter. We farm south of Killarney and love our life working on the land.

I have played the piano since I was 8 years old and was the organist in our old church building for about 15 years. I am so pleased to be back playing and I feel that our music program contributes meaningfully to Sunday worship."
