Alexandra Lafontaine, aged 25 years, passed away on Friday, November 1, 2019.
Alex was born on November 14, 1993 in Winnipeg, Manitoba and moved to Brandon in 2001, residing there until her passing. She graduated from Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School in 2011 where she was the Manitoba Gold and Canadian Bronze Medalist in Skills Competition for Architecture, giving her the opportunity to design a home located in Brandon. Alex worked at Sobeys for eight years, spending the last three years as the Seafood Manager. She loved her job so much and received numerous accolades for the outstanding work she did. Alex's strong sense of community led her to spend time volunteering at the Samaritan House giving back to her community. She loved the outdoors and spent countless hours hiking, biking, skiing with her go pro, camping and star gazing. She was also an urban artist and loved her cats. Alex was compassionate and caring with an infectious laugh and quirky sense of humour.
She will be lovingly remembered by her father Ted, mother Debra, brother Ethan, grandparents, Gerry and Joyce Lafontaine, grandfather Richard Wagner, Auntie Jo and Uncle Bill Hicock, aunts, Karin and Niki, uncles, Rich and Ryan and their families, as well as numerous cousins and extended family.
