ADELLE (DEL) FRANCES CRAIG (WUCKERT) On August 9, 2017 at Victoria General Hospital, Del Craig, loving wife of the late Gordon Harbison Craig, who predeceased her in 1997, passed away peacefully with her daughter by her side. She was born on December 1, 1919 in Winnipeg and was the youngest of four children. Survivors include her loving daughter Kelly Kunderman, son-in-law Greg, granddaughters, Taylor, Lindsay and Jennifer, step-daughters, Diane and Elaine and their families, and other very special family members. After graduating from Angus School of Commerce in 1938, Mom was employed by The Commercial Union Assurance Co. Ltd. for 18 years. During the Second World War, she attained the position of Secretary and Casualty Policy Underwriter until her marriage in 1957. The next number of years were spent raising her family. In 1984, she moved to White Rock, BC, returning to live in Winnipeg in 1992. At the ripe old age of 90, Mom decided to sell her condo and give up her driver's license in order to be one of the first occupants to move into Seine River Retirement Residence. She thoroughly enjoyed her last eight years there, where she was an avid bridge player. Mom won the silver medal, which she proudly displayed on her walker, at The All Seniors Games this past summer, beating out the younger 80 year olds! In her later years, Mom always said that her two best assets were her eyes and ears but at 97 her mind was pretty sharp as well. Those who dared to discuss politics with her were in for a fierce debate. As per Mom's wishes, a private family service/Celebration of Life will be held and flowers are gratefully declined. Donations to her favourite charity, Children's Wish Foundation (Manitoba Chapter) would be greatly appreciated.
