MAUREEN RODGER

It is with profound sadness that we share the untimely passing of Maureen Rodger. She passed away on February 8, 2020, surrounded by those closest to her.
She was predeceased by her son Krisjan Vincent; her parents, Ian and Janet Rodger, and her brother Allister Rodger. She will forever be remembered and missed by her daughter Jennifer Vincent (Dylan), grandchildren, Jude, Sloane and Eve Dufort; brothers, Jim (Susanne) and Bill Rodger (Suzanne); many nieces, nephews and friends.
Maureen was born in Pine Falls, MB, where she developed a passion for music, including bagpipes and piano. She became an accomplished and decorated piper, and dedicated many Saturday mornings to practicing, much to the dismay of her nearby Wolseley neighbours.
Maureen was most at peace when in nature and had an enviable green thumb. Maybe it was being born on St. Patrick's day or her Irish blood, but she could always immediately find one or more four leaf clovers in any clover patch.
In her later years she developed a real penchant for travelling, with one of her most profound trips being a solo adventure to Churchill, MB.
Maureen was truly kind to all she encountered, always putting the needs of others before her own. She had a very generous nature and supported countless charitable efforts despite her modest means.
She loved her family with all her heart. Her greatest joy was being a grandmother to her three lovable grandchildren.
We are all taking great comfort in knowing she is now reunited with her beloved son, Krisjan.
There will be a celebration of her wonderful life on February 15, 2020. It will be held between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. at 37 Kingsway.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation or a charity of your choice.

Condolences & Memories (11 entries)

  • My condolences Maureen’s family. Maureen and I went to school together in Pine Falls, she was as a lot of fun. I last saw her at a school reunion in Pine Falls a couple of years ago, glad we were able connect. The Rodger family and ours were all friends, shared lots of laughs. I can remember Maureen, Alister, Jimmy and Billy practicing the bagpipes in their yard in Pine Falls, they were all talented. Rest In Peace “Rod”. - Posted by: Jake (Jack) Bourrier (Friend) on: Feb 18, 2020

  • I learned of Maureen's passing today. Very sad news. My Thoughts are with her family. Maureen and I hadn't spoken in years, but I spent the day reflecting on all the good times we shared and the music we produced. The world lost a truly beautiful soul. - Posted by: Ross Davidson (Friend (Stirling Pipe Band)) on: Feb 12, 2020

  • I am so incredibly sad to hear of Maureen’s passing. Everyone knew the Rogers, Maureen, Allistair, Jimmy and Billie and of course their parents Ian and Janet. Maureen had a genuinely beautiful soul. One could go for years without seeing her and she would invite you over and chat like you had spoken yesterday! She did know how to chat lol! Her passing will leave a large hole in many hearts. My sincere condolences to her family and friends at this incredibly sad time. - Posted by: Colleen Peterson (Frederick) (Friend) on: Feb 12, 2020

  • So sorry for your loss. - Posted by: David Bihun (friend) on: Feb 12, 2020

  • I was profoundly saddened to hear of Maureen’s passing. I did not even know she was sick which I think was true of many of her friends. She wouldn’t have wanted anyone to know. We grew up together in the same small town and remained friends long after time pulled us in different directions. She was always kind and funny as heck. Thinking of her now brings back a flood of memories. As young kids in that small town, we always did our best to get into trouble. I knew her family well. Her brothers Allistair, Jimmy, and Billy and her mother Janet and father Ian. All beautiful people. I spent many long hours at their house causing mischief. We lost touch over the years but were reconnected again through Facebook and Instagram. I remember her telling me about her trip to Churchill and how much she enjoyed it. I was so happy for her. I know she had grandchildren and had a beautiful daughter who I never met but who I know she was immensely proud of. I will miss her and my thoughts go out to all her family at this very sad time. - Posted by: Theresa Lavallee (Friend) on: Feb 12, 2020

  • I was truly saddened to hear of Maureen’s passing. Maureen and I were part of the same “gang” during our teenage years. She was always there for whatever mischief we were up to and was considerate and wise with her many friends. Times like this make you realize how precious people like Maureen truly are. She will be greatly missed. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with Maureen’s family at this difficult time. Kelly - Posted by: Kelly Sharpe (Friend) on: Feb 12, 2020
