CONSTANCE GRACE BELANGER (nee AITKENHEAD) August 9, 1932 - September 22, 2017 Peacefully and with quiet dignity, Connie passed away at Pembina Place Care Home with family by her side. She will be lovingly remembered by her three sons, Lee (Gerri), Paul (Monique), and Bill; grandchildren, Aussten, Jesse (Hannah), Brooklyn (James); great-grandchildren, Mya and Bowen; brother Harold; sisters, Joyce (Rich), Carol (Gene); brothers, Jim and Ross (Connie); sister-in-Law Leola, and brother-in-law Denny, many nieces, nephews, extended family and close friends. She was predeceased by husband Ashley, son Jeffrey, parents Elizabeth and James, mother-in-law Agatha Belanger, brother Bill, granddaughter Leslee Ann, nephew Kevin and sister-in-law Hildur. Connie grew up in Whitemouth, MB, the oldest of seven children. Connie lived a happy carefree life in the country. Our home was full of music, laughter, song and lots of great food for friends and family to enjoy. Connie was a big help to our Mom with all her younger siblings. We all missed her when she left home to work in the city and waited patiently for her to come home on the weekends. Ashley and Connie hosted many special events for friends and family. She was the best chef ever. You didn't want to miss one of their dinners or parties. Connie was devoted to her church and family. She was a great Mother. She loved her sons with all her heart, always being there when they needed her, and wanting the best for them. She was a loving Gramma to her grandchildren, caring daughter to Mom and Dad and always the Big Sister to her siblings. In later years, special times were spent with the granddaughter Leslee Ann and brother Jimmy. Lots of car rides to St. Vital Park taking pictures, watching the geese, and later coffee at Tim Horton's. Throughout her life she gave to others, volunteering at Jocelyn House, baking biscuits and homemade soups for the patients. Always the caregiver to all who knew her. Connie lived a very colourful life, starting her own business, The Craft Cupboard, in 1976 working with artists she truly loved from all parts of Manitoba and across Canada. She retired form her shop at The Forks in 1996, became a Travel Agent and travelled all around the world. From walking on The Great Wall of China, riding elephants in Thailand, a camel in Egypt, to her trips to Africa, she did it all, meeting new people along the way. Her favourite travels were to Great Britain to visit the Aitkenhead Clan. She loved her British Family. A viewing will be held on Thursday October 5 at 7:00 p.m., at Thomson "In the Park" Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Boulevard. Funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, October 6, at St. Paul's Anglican Church, 830 North Drive, Winnipeg. Following a time of fellowship at the church, interment will take place at Whitemouth Cemetery, Whitemouth, MB. Special thanks to the staff at Pembina Place, to Glenna, Lory, and Barb for their care and kindness to Connie during her stay at Pembina Place. We will miss your unconditional love, strength and support, Con. Love you forever. The peace of the Lord be with you. Flowers are gratefully declined.
