GRACIE HERNTIER

GRACIE ANA ELIZABETH HERNTIER June 19, 2006 - March 16, 2014 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of our sweet baby girl Gracie. Her beautiful blue eyes captured our hearts the day she was born. Gracie was a very charismatic child whose presence touched everyone she met. Gracie was a caring, happy, delightful, forgiving, and inquisitive child. She loved to sing, dance, play piano, guitar and entertain family and friends with her detailed make up tutorials. Gracie attended St. Andrews School where she made countless friends from grades 1 through 6. Gracie will be greatly missed by her grade two teacher whom she loved and admired. Gracie attended daycare with her special buddies Connor, Savannah, and Sydney from the very young age of nine months old where they were all loved and cared for by Terry and Brian. Gracie was passionate about her family. Her best times were spent surrounded by the people she loved and adored. Gracie loved ALL animals especially her three dogs Blacky, Mango, and "The Mexican", Chi-Chi. Gracie spent countless hours with her dogs teaching them how to read and write, she never gave up on them. Gracie loved to spend time at mom's work talking with staff and reminding Dr. Ricardo that he saved her life when she was six months old. The best part of her visits was sharing a popsicle with one of the nurses on duty. Gracie loved spending Saturdays with her dad where they would attend her ballet and jazz classes, then do lunch at her favourite restaurant the Olive Garden in Transcona, followed by her favourite pastime "shopping". On Thursday, March 13 Gracie and her dad went on an outing to the central police station where much to her delight she was given the opportunity to see all the Winnipeg Police Service vehicles. Gracie's memory will live on through the hearts of her biological mother, Jacklyn Herntier and two sisters Leigha and Nevaeh, her parents Tony and Ana Herntier, her uncle Terrance and Tia Jill (family pets Jersey and Piper), great-grandmother Maria, great-aunts Maria (John), Olivia (Chad), Ivonne, Laurie (Winston), great-great-uncle Denis (Rita), great-uncles Carlos (Debbie), Joe (April), Jack, Sterling (Carol), Ted and Murray, cousins, Sandy (Gil), Bruce, John (Michelle), Nicole (Matt), Ashley, Tyler (Alyssa), Ryan (Janelle), Chase, Brenden, Justin, Tammy, Noah, Ethan, Bella, Keira, Finley, Sadie, and Mateo. Also left to cherish her memory are numerous extended family members including those in Brazil and Portugal. Her honorary aunts and uncles include: Fil and Joe, Max and Debbie, Audy and Carol, Mike and Cindy, Sandy and Gil. Gracie was predeceased by her great-grandparents Gracia, Raymond and Augusto. Special thanks to the pallbearers; Gil, Noah, Ryan, and Brenden. We as a family have been humbled by the outpouring of support shown to us from family, friends and the kindness of strangers. Special thanks to the Winnipeg Fire Paramedics, Children's Hospital, Winnipeg Police Service and Springfield RCMP detachment for their valiant efforts. The family would like to acknowledge the Seven Oaks Hospital Foundation for their kindness and generosity. A celebration of Gracie's life will take place Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 11:00 a.m., Immanuel Pentecostal Church, 955 Wilkes Avenue. Interment to follow at Glen Eden Memorial Gardens, 4477 Main Street. To honour Gracie and her life those in attendance are encouraged to wear Mexican clothing. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Gracie's name to The Gracie Herntier Fund at the Winnipeg Foundation, 1350-1 Lombard, Winnipeg, MB R3B 0X3 or in trust to Gracie Herntier at any Scotia Bank location. 204-586-8044

My daughter danced at Contemporary Dancers with your precious Gracie for the past two years and we have had many sweet talks and tender tears in the past days. My heart breaks for you all. I'm so sorry for your loss. We've kept the class dance pictures on our wall and today we have delicately placed them in my daughter's scrap book with the touching obituary that you wrote.

  • I am so very sorry for your loss. Gracie was an angel! She was a bright, cheerful light on our bus and her passing has left a huge void. I will always remember her fondly. I will miss her beautiful smile, her humour, and her generosity. The day after her passing her parents had the principals at the school give me a gift of a St. Patrick's day hat and flashing necklace that Gracie had bought for me. That was our Gracie! I will treasure that gift always and wear it every St. Patrick's day! My deepest condolences to you Tony and Ana and family. Lisa Johnson

I didn't know Gracie but I have thought of her and what her family must be going through every day since this tragedy took place. Please know that there are people everywhere praying for your healing and hoping that somehow the blessings that Gracie has left in your lives get you through these terrible days. Godspeed.

I know that it is hard to see past the sorrow, but I hope that reflecting on the wonderful happy memories that you and Ana had with little Gracie will help you to see light again. Please know that our thoughts, prayers and love are with you during this sad time. Our deepest sympathy. Dale and Steve Martinos
