ADELINE PICKERING
October 2, 1932 - November 2, 2019

It is with profound sadness that our family announces the passing of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at the age of 87, at her new home in the Lac du Bonnet Personal Care Home.
Mom was born on October 2, 1932 in Canora, Saskatchewan to parents, Joe and Annie Twerdochlib. She will be lovingly missed by her daughters, Heather (Bill) and Carol (Dodie); sons, Keith (Carol), Ian, Rob (Gail) and John (Ewa); grandchildren, Josh, Michael, Vanessa, Michelle (Chris), Joel (Melissa), Chris, Nicholas (Daniela), Georgeann (Cole), Cameron, Lily and Lauren; as well as great-grandchildren, Alina, Anna and Ryder.
Mom was predeceased by her husband George in 1967; brother Leonard; father Joe; mother Annie; sister Veronica, and brother Ron.
Mom had a tough life, losing her husband George over 52 years ago at the age of 33, and leaving her with five children under the age of 10 to raise on her own. She worked hard to make sure all our needs were met, and together with the support of our grandparents, Joe and Annie, we were well loved and cared for.
Mom's faith and love of God was what got her through the tough times. She lived her life with an easy-going outlook and loved to help out where she could. She was an active member of St. Joseph the Worker Parish since it was established in 1960, until she moved to supportive housing in Pinawa in July of 2018. She also belonged to the Catholic Women's League.
After graduating from high school, Mom went on to train to become an X-ray Technician. The majority of her career, until retirement, was spent working at the Health Sciences Centre. She enjoyed travelling to explore new places and visit family and friends. One of her great passions was food. She loved going out for meals and treating her family on special occasions. She always said, "I'm so glad I never lost my appetite."
We will miss her and her beautiful ways, her words, and her acts of kindness.
Many thanks to Dr. Bruneau, Dr. Papetti, the staff at the Ironwood and the Lac du Bonnet Personal Care Home for all the care and compassion they showed towards our mother.
Funeral service will be held on Friday, November 15 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Joseph the Worker Roman Catholic Church, 505 Brewster Street, Winnipeg, with interment to follow in the Transcona Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba or the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • My and our condolences to all of the Pickering family. Our families were big and we had six kids,so my mother would send me over to help Adeline with all her kids. ! I knew how to change diapers and she appreciated that. lol My younger siblings went to school with most of the Pickering clan. Adeline was a CWLMember and we reacquainted more when I joined a few years back. I drove her home several times from functions and meetings. She was alway most appreciative. May God's Angels take good care of you now. You deserve divine Peace..God Bless ♥️Pat Brokke nee Lucko and all the Lucko clan .Lynda Angela Brian Raymond and Doreen - Posted by: Patricia Brokke (Friend) on: Nov 14, 2019

  • I was sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I enjoyed talking with your mom when I would see her. I went to school with Carol from an early age. Later many years later I worked in emergency and would give her a ride home after our evening shifts. Adeline was a very kind person. - Posted by: Cathie McLeod (Friend) on: Nov 12, 2019

  • It is with great sadness to hear her passing. I, together with two other women, visited her in Pinawa in 2018. We tried visiting her again this year but she wasn't there anymore and didn't know where she went. She was a woman of faith. She joined the Handmaids of the Lord Ministry in 2015. She actively attended our weekly household meetings. She tried to go to daily mass at St. Joseph the worker Parish. She was always happy and with a smile. She always had stories to tell, be it her family, the senior program, her friends, the house in Cloverdale, her love of food, her appetite, her health. She used to always say she was born on Guardian Angel's day and she went with her creator on All Souls Day. She was a special woman. - Posted by: Lorna (A sister in Christ at the CFC Handmaids of the Lord) on: Nov 10, 2019

  • So sad to hear of Adeline's death but so happy she'd had a good life despite the hardships. When my Mom (Luba Kyba), sister Angie and I used to visit Auntie Clara and Uncle Tom Kindrasky (Clara and my Dad Fred were siblings) in Norquay, we would visit the Twerdochlibs who were always so welcoming and kind and we would have a lovely time despite the cranky geese who liked to chase us. Condolences to the family for the loss of a most admirable woman. - Posted by: Nydia (Kyba) Peterson (relative) on: Nov 10, 2019
