LIANE PARKER
(nee PISKE)

Liane passed peacefully, on September 24, 2019, at Selkirk Regional Health Centre.
Liane will be sadly missed by her mother Helga Piske; brother Frank Piske; sister-in-law Joy Myers Piske; and nephews, Kiefer and Nicholas. She was predeceased by her father Wolfgang Piske and her husband Robert Parker.
Liane was born in Berlin, Germany on May 6, 1952. At age three, she immigrated to Winnipeg with her Mom and Dad. She loved all living things, but her passion was everything horses. Liane married Bob, the love of her life, in 1981. Together for 38 years, they built their dream home, Parkridge Stables, where they raised their beloved horses, dogs and cats.
Liane was an accomplished horsewoman, winning many dressage competitions, and contributing her knowledge and talents to the Manitoba Horse Community.
Special thanks to Liane and Bob's many friends for their caring support. Thank you to the doctors, nurses and health care workers who provided hope and comfort along her final journey.
A come and go Celebration of Life will be held for Liane and Bob on Sunday, October 27, 2019 between 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., with a time of remembrances at 2:30 p.m. at Seasons Funeral Chapel, 576 Balsam Crescent in Oakbank, MB.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba.

Condolences & Memories (10 entries)

  • I worked with Liane at MDS/ISM in the '80s and '90s. So many of our colleagues were active in the horse community but for Liane  it was different... it was the driving force within her, and so refreshing for me to know someone working to support a passion rather than "building a career." Liane knew exactly what the fabric of her life was to be, and she achieved it superbly. As life happens we drifted apart and when reconnecting several years ago I saw the same kindness, gentleness, decency, and integrity...qualities not diminished by any of life's trials. And how could I not mention her humour and wit? It was her quick quips and repartee that marked her presence in the busyness of office life and began our friendship all those years ago! We have lost a magnificent human being whose suffering in these last days pains us all.   RIP Liane. You were much loved and memories of time together will be held close.   My deepest condolences to her family and friends. - Posted by: Karen Eggertson (Friend and colleague) on: Oct 08, 2019

  • I fondly recall Liane being spoken of often by my Aunt Sally Purvis (deceased from breast cancer in 2011). Both Sally and Liane shared their love of horses, and I believe that Sally boarded her horse with Liane and Bob. I was saddened to hear that Liane too was struck with the same disease. I know that you both are having some good, long chats about horses wherever you are! - Posted by: Heather Purvis (friend of my Aunt) on: Oct 03, 2019

  • Liane was a dear, dear friend and mentor for over 30 years. She was my introduction to the working world when I was a naive university student and showed me by example on how to be both kind and tough in a professional world. Since those long ago days we had developed a lasting friendship that I will miss immensely. I will miss her thoughtfulness, kindness, and caring. She was a very special person to my wife and me! - Posted by: Waiyen Chu (friend) on: Sep 30, 2019

  • Many years of horses, many years of neighbourhood visits. Lianne (and Bob) welcomed me to Hillside Road nearly 20 years ago and offered support with my equestrian habit, including a home for a horse, good and patient advice and many evenings of fun. Lianne was a class act to the very end and will be missed, but remembered for many years to come. Geri Sweet - Posted by: Geri Sweet (Friend and Neighbour ) on: Sep 30, 2019

  • I was so very sad and sorry to hear of Liane's passing. She was a great person and a friend. I have great memories of our time together. I will never forget all the wonderful times we spent together riding. You have my heartfelt sympathy. - Posted by: Kathleen Clear (Friend) on: Sep 29, 2019

  • I will always fondly remember Liane. We had many laughs and fun times at our days at MDS/IBM. My deepest condolences goes out to her family. - Posted by: Margaret Whitlaw (Friend and coworker) on: Sep 29, 2019

  • Our close friends and treasured next door neighbors of 35 years will be missed beyond measure. We will hold closely all of your memories of the times we spent together. With Blessings to Helga, Frank, Joy and family. Love, Marlene and Aubrey - Posted by: Next foor neighbors and close friends (Close friends and next door neighbors) on: Sep 28, 2019

  • I lived with Liane shortly before she married Bob. We lost touch in the next couple of years but I remember her ambition was to compete in dressage. Although she never mentioned an ambition to own a riding stable it wasn't hard to imagine her wanting to do so. I'm glad she got to live her dreams. I am sure that she and Bob are reunited again. May they rest in peace. - Posted by: Fran Vandenberg Zastre (former room mate; childhood neighbour) on: Sep 28, 2019

  • We are saddened to learn of Liane’s passing, but relieved that she is now free of pain and illness. We enjoyed our breakfast visits with Liane & Bob at local restaurants, where there was always a lot of news to share about family, country life, travels, and community concerns. They were caring and thoughtful neighbours and this is a great loss to the area. Unfortunately we cannot attend the service on Oct 27, but will remember Liane & Bob with fondness. Our sincere condolences to the Parker and Piske families and friends. - Posted by: Monica Ptak & Ralph Eschenwecker (Neighbours from Hillside Road) on: Sep 28, 2019
