JUDITH LESLIE BURR-CAVENAGH (nee CORDER) It is with great sadness that the family of Judy announces her peaceful passing on January 6, 2017 in the comfort of her home. She is lovingly remembered and will be greatly missed by her husband David; her daughter Jennifer (Ryan); her stepdaughters, Tannis (Dan), Jaqueline (Tony), Stephanie and her grandson Rhys; her brothers, Rae (Myrna), Brian (Jean), Doug (Cathy), as well as by her extended family Ruth Burr, Robert (Dorothy), David (Lois) and Art Cavenagh and all her nieces and nephews whom she had a special bond with. Judy worked at Riverview Health Centre at the Day hospital for 26 years, retiring this fall. Judy was admired and loved by all her colleagues whom she also called her friends. Judy loved to travel with her family. Many great trips were taken with Dave and Jennifer including South Korea, Hawaii, Florida, Las Vegas, New York and what will be our most memorable trip this past summer to San Francisco. Judy will be dearly missed by all who knew her. She was a kind, generous woman with a great sense of humour. She touched all she met with her open and warm nature. She was a wonderful mother and devoted wife and words cannot express how she will be missed. She was the light of our family. Judy we love you to the moon and back. A memorial service celebrating Judy's life will take place on Thursday January 12 at 1:00 p.m. at the Charleswood United Church, 4820 Roblin Boulevard, Winnipeg. The family wishes to express their heartfelt thanks for the care and comfort provided to Judy and her family by the staff of the Riverview Health Centre Palliative Care Program as well as CancerCare at the Victoria Hospital. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. For those who wish to sign the online Guest Book please visit our website.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
My heart goes out to you Jenn on this very tragic loss of your mother. Although many of us at Workplace Resource never knew your mother, we so clearly recognized the deep love and admiration you had for her whenever you spoke of her and shared stories of your time with her either on the phone or on trips back to Winnipeg. We are so happy that you had these last few weeks to spend this precious time by her side...although I know that it will never seem like enough. All of us at WR are thinking of you and our prayers go out to you beaming you strength as you begin this process of healing and grieving. Jenn, you are your mom's legacy and what an honour you have as you continue living your life in memory of your beautiful mom.

Dear Judy, We have never met; I am a good friend of your daughter, Jennifer... Jennifer spoke so highly of you in the years that I have known her. She told me about a few of the trips you went on & with her frequent trips to Winnipeg, could tell that she loved you with all her heart and was so close to you. She spoke SO highly of you. Jennifer is an incredible person who is warm, generous, thoughtful and a role model to all. A dream daughter. This speaks enormously about you as a person and mother. When Jennifer was promoted at her job in late 2016, I can pretty much tell you that it was one of the highlights of my year & really made a lot of people very happy. Jennifer is someone that people want to be happy and someone we wish great success to. When she is happy, we feel happy. Now that she is sad, we are feeling it too. You have raised an incredible woman. I hope that my son is even half as amazing as she. I cannot imagine how Jennifer is feeling right now but please be assured that she has a village behind her sending her love from every direction. Praying for your family. I have no doubt that you are in peace and with God. Jewel - Posted by: Jewel Logothetis (Friend of Jennifer's) on: Jan 10, 2017
