She was predeceased by her father Cecil (1977), her mother Fern (2001), husband James (2011), stepson Timothy (2002), sister Ruth (1972), and brother Donald (2013).
She is survived by her close family members, Steven James, Calvin James (Jody Hagarty), Marjorie Poor, Joan Poor (Darrel Harmon), and nieces, Keleigh, Cheryl and Crystal, plus numerous cousins.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at Crescent Fort Rouge United Church, 525 Wardlaw Ave., Winnipeg, MB.
Special thanks to her dear friend Jennie Beyak for her love and support and the unbelievably caring and comforting staff at St. Boniface Hospital Palliative Care.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I am so sorry to hear of your sister’s passing last year, Calvin/“Kelly”. I expect she was in Grandview with your family the year you visited although I’m afraid I don’t remember meeting her. Mom (Dorothy) and I visited Aunt Fern once many years ago. They had so many memories to share. We also lost 2 members of Great Aunt Mary’s family last year. Your Mother & aunts’ visits to Uncle Jimmy & my Gramma Lottie were always the hit of the summer for my whole family! Love & hugs cousin Cheryl - Posted by: Cheryl Winger (Stuart) (Distant cousin) on: Jul 07, 2020
