With great sadness, peacefully on the morning of February 16, 2020, we lost our beautiful wife, mother and grandmother.
Left to mourn their tremendous loss is May's husband Tom of 60 years; son Tom (Cathy), grandchildren, Thomas, Peter, Georgette and Catelin of Australia; as well as daughter Sandy, grandchildren, Joshua and Emma.
She was predeceased by her very close sister Bonnie, sister Audrey and her parents, Lillian and Peter and leaves close families, Bellemare, Kulyk, Quesnel, Chalus and Roberge. She had a special bond with her sister Bonnie that was filled with a lifetime of love and laughs.
May loved her family dearly, including many nieces and nephews, enjoying a special relationship with Tammy, Jody and Andrew.
Mom was an avid and passionate supporter of her own children in their sporting pursuits. In her spare time she coached ringette, soccer and women's hockey. In her youth, she played baseball and in later years began golfing with dad and their NPV crew. Mom loved quilting, sewing and baking.
Mom and Dad moved to Dugald where they were welcomed with open arms and many close friendships developed. Mom and dad were blessed to have them in their lives.
May worked in Winnipeg School Division No. 1 for 25 years, during that time she developed many lasting friendships and was very highly respected by her friends and peers.
Our deep thanks to all involved with the care and love provided, as well as the relationships that developed during her stay at the Middlechurch Care Home. Special thanks going to Dr. Haligoski and the D2 ward and the Team at Deer Lodge Hospital. Our eternal gratitude to Dianna Rassmussen director of ALS Society of Manitoba.
To our families and friends, thank you for all the love, care, support and devotion towards mom's care. God Bless and special thanks to the Ministry of the Oakbank United Church and Holly and the Season's Funeral Home.

May she Rest in Peace

  • I miss my sister-in-law May. I miss her smiles and laughter. I remember how kind and caring she was to our mother in her later years. She was a great sister-in-law to me, always there with good advice whenever I asked for some. Cela - Posted by: Cela Leonard (nee Wachal) (Sister-in-law ) on: Feb 13, 2021
