Mom is survived by her children Levinia Scott, Mervin, Donald (Adrienne) and Leonard (Diane), sister-in–law Lena Yellowega, 10 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild.
Mom was born in Ashville Manitoba on January 5, 1920. She grew up and attended school in the Ethelbert area. Her first job was in McCreary Manitoba for 3 ½ years. This is where she met the love of her life Steve. They were married in 1940 and farmed in McCreary and Laurier, Manitoba. In 1955 the family moved to Winnipeg. Mom worked 7 years cleaning offices, then worked for St. Boniface Hospital where she became a housekeeping supervisor until her retirement in 1984.
