VERNA CAROLINE SCANES It is with sadness we announce the passing of Verna Caroline Scanes on February 5, 2019. Verna was predeceased by her parents, Phillip and Anne, and her best friend, of 60 years, Betty. Verna began her career at Searle Grain and moved to the Canadian Wheat Board from where she retired. Verna was active in sports in her younger years and after retirement spent her time at her cottage. Her love of animals was demonstrated by her support of various animal agencies. She will be missed by family and friends. At her request there will be no service, a celebration of her life will be held at a later date, private interment at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens. Donations can be made in Verna's memory to the Winnipeg Humane Society. THOMSON FUNERAL HOME 204-783-7211 Condolences may be sent to

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Verna and Betty would always make sure to stop in at the Environmental Options Recycling depot in Lac du Bonnet, share some laughs, visit Mamma Kitty (the shop cat), and bring her some special treats. Verna and Betty were avid recyclers. They loved their time at the cottage. The recycling shop staff (and Mamma Kitty) miss their friendly visits. - Posted by: Karen Nilsson (Friend) on: Apr 11, 2019
