Date of Passing: Oct 24, 2005Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
A. F. GRACE FORRESTER (nee MUZEEN) Peacefully, on October 24, 2005 at the Fort Garry Care Centre, Mom passed away at the age of 86. She was predeceased by her husband Bruce, her parents Rollie and Anne, her brother Jim, and her sister Ethel. She is survived by her son Ross, daughter-in-law Heidi, and grandchildren Liam and Janelle Forrester of Winnipeg. She is also survived by her daughter Gaiann, son-in-law Chris, and grandchildren Lee, Asta and Keanna Vaughan of Beaumont, Alberta. Mom was born and raised on Stiles St. in Winnipeg, and attended Gordon Bell High School. She worked at the Royal Bank and at the Canadian Wheat Board for many years before marrying Bruce, the love of her life. She then dedicated her heart and soul to taking care of her family. Mom loved to ski and reflected fondly on her many trips to Banff. She also loved her summers at the lake with the entire family. Her many sewing, knitting, crocheting and rug-hooking projects also kept her busy. Mom was an avid animal lover. From the family dogs to the many birds and squirrels she fed in the front yard, they were all a constant source of fun and entertainment for her. Mom was a wonderful person through and through, and she was loved by all who knew her. We will miss her dearly, but know that she will live in our hearts and memories forever. The family would like to thank the capable, caring staff at the Fort Garry Care Centre. We will always appreciate the loving care and friendship Mom received between our visits with her. In keeping with Mom's wishes, no funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 200 - 6 Donald St., Winnipeg, MB, R3L 0K6. Have a good rest Mom, you deserve it. Say 'Hi' to Dad and everyone else up there for us. We miss you all. THOMSON FUNERAL HOME 783-7211
