NANCY EILEEN CROCKATT (nee RODWAY) June 29, 1934 - January 27, 2019 Nancy passed away peacefully in the early morning of January 27, 2019, at the Souris Personal Care Home. She left this world holding the hand of a caring friend. She will be sadly missed by family and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Hugh (2015); son Tom (2011); and parents, Graham and Nancy Rodway. She is survived by her daughter Nancy Jo (Joe) Moller; grandson Cody (Lauren); and great-grandson Caleb Moller. Also survived by daughter-in-law Linda; grandsons, Jay and Kyle (Kyla); and great-granddaughters, Landyn and Brynn Crockatt. Nancy is also survived by her siblings, Pat (Bill) Kotelko, Helen (Chris) Riddell, Bill (Donna) Rodway and Jim (Dell) Rodway; sisters-in-law, Anne Ostop, Eileen Crockatt and Phyllis Crockatt; and their respective families. After the loss of first son Tom and then husband Hugh, Nancy lost her bright will to live and slowly faded away. Nancy had a gentle soul and welcoming heart. The coffee pot was always on and a meal ready in minutes for anyone that happened to stop in. Anyone lucky enough to be there for her lemon pies always came back. Over the years, Mom was a 4-H leader and Stats Can employee, but first and foremost a farm wife and mother. She met many challenges, whether running for parts, making meals or working in the field, head on with a smile on her face. After their farm flooded, Mom was a constant companion and caregiver to Dad. Mom was always supportive of her children and grandchildren and nothing made her happier than hearing about their daily lives and being included in their activities. Eulogy will be given by long time family friend John Lavallee. Pallbearers will be grandsons Jay Crockatt and Cody Moller. Honorary pallbearers will be grandson Kyle Crockatt and friend Katie-Jo Williamson. Funeral service will be at MacKenzie Funeral Chapel, 433 Main Street, Stonewall, MB, on Monday, February 18, 2019, at 1:00 p.m., Pastor Henry Ozirney officiating. Lunch immediately after at Stonewall Legion with interment to follow at Warren Cemetery. The family would like to thank the staff at Souris Personal Care Home for their excellent care going above and beyond all the time. Also thanks to Katie-Jo and Margie for their compassion and companionship to Mom during her last year. Rest In Peace, Mom, Gone But Never Forgotten. Donations may be made in Mom's memory to Souris and Glenwood Palliative Care, Box 10, Souris, MB R0K 2C0. MacKenzie Funeral Home Stonewall 204-467-2525
