Forever Loved, Never Forgotten

With deep sadness we announce the sudden passing of our mom, grandma and great grandma on June 27th at St. Boniface Hospital. She was surrounded by her family. She leaves to cherish her memory her 5 children, Brenda (Edwin), Greg (Kim), Bruce (Jackie), Betty Ann, (Dan) and Marie (Glen). Grandchildren Tyler (Stephanie), Brendin (Allison), Mathew, Danielle, Tammy and Sara. Great Grandchildren Hudson, Charlotte, Lincoln and Ruby. As well as numerous nieces and nephews. Mom was predeceased by her beloved Husband of 51 years Helgi, her parents Hubert and Marie, and her many brothers and sisters. Mom was born on August 3rd, 1932. She was raised in Whitemouth, MB where she met and married Helgi, and they moved to Winnipeg to raise their family. Mom was a full time homemaker providing a warm and loving home. She ensured that on the last day of school the car was packed and we were off to Bird Lake for the summer, not returning till the first day of school. Bird Lake was Mom’s favorite place to be, where she loved spending time with family and friends, and enjoyed fishing and blueberry picking. Mom and Dad spent 12 years in St. Albert, AB., where they made many dear friends. Mom took up golf in Alberta, and achieved 2 holes in one. She continued curling, and with her team, won the Northern Alberta Seniors Championship. Mom and Dad had countless golf adventures in Canada and U.S. touring in their motor home. When Dad retired they moved back to Winnipeg to be with their Grandchildren. Mom enjoyed her last few years at Middlechurch where she received great care with compassion, we are very grateful. The family would like to thank the staff at St. Boniface Hospital, particularly the teams in Emergency, Cath Lab and the Acute Cardiac Care Unit. A memorial for Mom will be held at Green Acres Funeral home on Thursday July 4th at 2:30pm. In lieu of flowers donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.

I am so sorry for your loss.
I am a volunteer at MC and I got to know Verna.
She had such a kind heart and a great sense of humour.
We had students come from the community High School to volunteer and Verna was so kind to them.
May she Rest In Peace and once again my deepest condolences to you all.
