Coreen Ann Webster (nee Sward)

With her youngest daughter at her side, Coreen peacefully passed away on January 2nd, 2020 at the age of 82.

Coreen was predeceased by her husband Leonard Webster, her daughter Nancy, her parents Jeanette and Ingvar Sward, in-laws Mildred and Wally Morton and their daughter Sally, sister Shirley Mostow, nephew Brian Robson, brother in-law Terry Houghton and numerous aunts and uncles.

Coreen is survived by daughters Lexy Cully, Mary Lynn Desjarlais (Russell), sister Heather Houghton, brother Colin Sward (Pat), brother in-law Alec Mostow, Uncle Donny Sutherland, numerous cousins whom she was greatly fond of, her grandchildren Gillian (Dave), Lindy (Garrett), Garrett (Leah), Bryce, Luc (Lena), Hansen and Mason, great grandchildren, Kaden, Kael, Ava, Camden, Harper, Theo and Beau, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Coreen was born April 28th, 1937, in Minahico, in the District of Rainy River, and moved to Lakeside, in Kenora, in 1942. She met the love of her life, Lennie Webster, while roller skating. They were married in 1955. Coreen and Lenny had 3 daughters, and they spent 10 happy years together in Donkirk Heights. She enjoyed camping and fishing with her young family. Coreen remembers her neighbours being like one big family. She spent many afternoons and evenings with the ladies playing cards and was a member of the neighbourhood bridge club. Even after Coreen moved to the other side of Rabbit Lake, they remained lifelong friends and always enjoyed sharing stories of past times.

Later in life, Coreen enjoyed winter excursions to Arizona where she formed many new friendships. She always came back with entertaining stories about her adventures in the sun. Some of her best adventures included shopping and dancing the night away.

Coreen’s favourite times were spent with family at Lexy’s camp on Black Sturgeon Lake during the summer months. She loved to be surrounded by her children and grandchildren and cherished their time together. She was especially proud of her great grandchildren and was always thrilled when they came to visit.

Coreen will always be remembered for her love of shopping, her flair for style and her infectious smile. She was a real character and was known for her wit and sense of humour. Coreen will be greatly missed by her family and especially by her grandchildren and great grandchildren who loved going to visit their “Grammy.”

The family wishes to express a sincere thank you to all the amazing staff at Pinecrest, especially Patti Frenette, Jan Brookes, Gillian Sundin, Heather Alcock, Michael Limerick and many others who were always there to brighten her day and make her feel loved. The devotion and care extended to Coreen during her time at Pinecrest is greatly appreciated. She especially looked forward to her frequent visits with some of her favourite relations: Judy, Wendy and Heather (the terrible trio). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Pinecrest Home Auxillary. A Service of Celebration will be held at Pinecrest Auditorium on Wednesday, January 8th, 2020 at 1pm.

I have had the pleasure of Coreen’s company on many occasions over the years,mostly at the”Mostow”gatherings,which were many.
She was a very special woman,always dressed to the nines,and loved a good laugh,her hair was never out of place. She loved to be at her sister Shirley’s home,where there was never a dull moment.Coreen was so proud of her girls,her grandchildren,and later her great grandchildren.Rest in peace dear friend.

I first met dear Corrine when our son married her granddaughter, Gillian.
I always admired her love of life and sense of humour even after having lost her husband and daughter tragically at young ages. She cherished their memories and carried on.
She was always the best dressed at family celebrations and meals👍👏
When she was the target of Lindy and Gillian’s teasing she laughed at herself and tried to give it back to them😉😀
Because she was part of many different people’s lives she will be missed by many😔❤️
