Jean Elizabeth Mosiewich
June 30, 1925 – November 30, 2019
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Jean Mosiewich, age 94, on Saturday November 30, 2019 at Oakview Place in Winnipeg.
Jean will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Judy (Guy) Ferguson and their children Kathryn, David and Natalie; Lynda (Henry) Nelson and their children Robert and Alison; and Carol (Neil) Ferguson and their children Andrew and Stephen, as well as great-grandchildren Duke, Lincoln, Marshall, Wyatt, John, Jane, William, Greta, Wesley and Lachlan, whom she loved dearly. Jean was predeceased by her husband Fred in 2000.
Jean’s life revolved around her family and her farm. She was a gifted cook, and had too many talents to mention when it came to maintaining a household inside and out. Jean sewed drapery, wedding dresses, recovered furniture, and completed innumerable beautiful projects. She enjoyed her weekly “snappy” card games at her 50 Plus Club in La Salle, and especially cribbage with Andrew. She was an ace billiards player, loved to read, and enjoyed a daily crossword puzzle – the more challenging the better. She believed in reward for effort, and took life as it came without complaint. In the years she and Fred ran their farm, Jean often took on the job of deep-tilling, and combining, which she did proudly and capably. She was a woman of diverse abilities!
Above all, Jean was endlessly proud of her children and their families. She believed in them and supported them unconditionally. She offered words of wisdom, and was always so pleased to celebrate their accomplishments along the way. To all who knew her, Jean will be remembered as a strong, optimistic woman who was, in many ways, slightly ahead of her time.
A private family service of remembrance will be held at a later date.
Our family wishes to thank all the staff who assisted Mum during her time at Oakview, as well as the residents who became her friends. She felt well-cared for, and enjoyed chatting with all who crossed her path on a daily basis. You are too many to name. Please accept our sincere gratitude.
- A private family service will be held.
