Teenie was born on July 15, 1915 in Overstoneville, MB where she resided until moving to Emerson in 1966. Teenie was predeceased by her loving husband Bill (in 1979) her parents, Phillip and Anna Brodoway; sisters, Ollie, Nettie and Ruth; and brothers, Mike and Johnny. Teenie will be sadly missed and held dear to the hearts of her daughters, Jean Baron, husband Ronald (Kamloops, BC) Ruth Kozak, husband Ernie; and Audrey Chapman, husband Gerry (Emerson, MB) and son John Fostey, wife Olga (Castelgar, BC).

She loved gardening, bingo, crafts and the gatherings with her friends and family. She will be missed for her snappy comments and wittiness! If there was a good time to be had, Teenie was always the first in line! Our thanks go out to the doctors, nurses and staff of the Emerson Personal Care facility for their kindness, compassion and dedication in making Teenies days cheerful and gratifying.
