Peacefully with family by her side, Simone Laliberte (Boutiere) passed away on December 19, 2021.
Mom was predeceased by her cherished son Claude (2007), beloved husband Ted (2009), sister Bernadette, brother Raymond and many in-laws. Mom's life will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Monique (Gary), grandchildren: Ted (Amy), Jamie (Tyree), Christine and Jenna, great-granddaughter Isabella, sisters-in-law: Corinne (Ray), Marie, Evelyn, Sally.
Mom was born on December 29, 1928 in Joyeuse, France to Henri and Raymonde Boutiere. She was one of three children, baby sister to Raymond and Bernadette. As a young woman Mom worked as a seamstress apprentice in Avignon France. The family survived the war years and immigrated to Canada in 1947, settling in Ponteix, Saskatchewan.
Mom wanted to spread her wings so she moved to Winnipeg where she met the love of her Life, Theodore (Ted) Laliberte at the Berry Dance Hall. They wed on September 18, 1954, spent their newlywed years in St. Vital and then settled in Transcona to raise their family.
Mom worked in laundry and as a seamstress at Park Manor for over 25 years. They were lucky to have such a hard working, dedicated employee and benefited from her many talents; altering clothing, sewing all the draperies for the facility and just being a loving, genuine person with all the staff and residents.
Mom enjoyed the simple things in life; gardening, she certainly had a green thumb as her flowers were the envy of most; any type of needlework, sewing, cross stitch, petit point, knitting; cooking, Mom was the best of cooks, everyone coveted her potato salad recipe and everything she made just seemed to have that special touch; card games with the Laliberte family; Sunday suppers at Ray and Corinne's; sitting on the balcony at 400 Des Meurons observing the activity in the gardens below, and she loved and adored her grandchildren and great-granddaughter. They brought her the greatest joy.
Mom was the best of mothers. She provided us with so many great memories of family vacations and of a home that was filled with love. Mom loved unconditionally and never told us how to live our lives, she simply set a good example by living hers with integrity, compassion, a sense of humour, a genuine love and respect for all and with gratitude for all that she received. We were truly Blessed.
We wish to express our sincere thanks to the third floor staff at Actionmarguerite, St. Vital for the care they provided and the compassion they showed to Mom and to us. Truly angels on earth.
Due to Covid precautions, a private family service will be held on Monday, January 3, 2022.
