August 22, 1941 – January 15, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our sister Mavis after a courageous four year battle with dementia. Dementia is a debilitating disease that robs a person of their memory in a painful, slow process.
Mavis was predeceased by her father Lyall; mother Louise; brother Ronald; sister Sharron; and brother Dean.
She is survived by brother Robert and brother Harold. She also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
In Mavis’s younger years she took great care to look after members of her family. She always ensured that all members of her family had a small gift for birthdays and Christmas, especially her nieces and nephews. Her greatest joy was to organize a weekend marathon of board games and her favourite country music.
Funeral service will be held Saturday, January 25, 2020 at Aboriginal Funeral Chapel, 724 Selkirk Avenue, Winnipeg, MB at 10:00 a.m. Interment will follow at the family plot at Glen Lawn Memorial Gardens located at 455 Lagimodiere Blvd, Winnipeg, MB.
Special thanks to the nursing staff and caregivers of the 2nd floor South, West Park Manor Personal Care Home, who extended medical care as well as friendship.
