Gertrude Rose Hagman

17 April , 19326 April , 2019

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mom, Gertrude, on April 6, 2019, at Riverview Health Centre, at the age of 86 years. Mom passed peacefully after a courageous battle with congestive heart failure and cancer.

She was predeceased by her loving husband Lawrence (2001); her brothers Edward and John; her sister Eveline.

Mom will lovingly be remembered by her family, son Phillip (Lisa), son John and son Norman (Natalie); her four grandchildren, Randy, Louise, Roman (Anh) and Nadia; three great grandchildren, Kaden, Greyson and Rosa; her nieces Annick and Marie-Isabelle.

Gertrude was born in St. Pierre on April 17, 1932, where she grew up and moved to Winnipeg. On April 24, 1955 Gertrude married Lawrence Hagman and began their family. She worked for many years at MTS, Typoplate and Safeguard Business Systems. Upon retiring, Gertrude found great joy in caring for her family. She enjoyed cooking, knitting, gardening, and watching hockey on TV.

She was friendly and kind, and loved to chat with anyone who dropped by to visit. She was the most caring, giving person you could ever meet. She loved the beauty of nature

With calm acceptance of her condition, she continued to demonstrate a dignity and care for others. Mom quietly passed away.

Thank you John for caring for Mom all the years of her life. She loved you and appreciated all you did for her.

We miss you, Mom. You will always be in our thoughts.
