March 7, 1942 – September 24, 2020

Peacefully on September 24, 2020, Leona (Lee) May Wolski (nee Parry) passed away at St. Boniface Hospital, at the age of 78 years.
She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Ernie, sons, Jeffery (Andrea), Michael (Cindy), and granddaughter Jessica.
Lee was born and raised in Lethbridge, Alberta on a dairy farm. She graduated from Holy Cross Nursing School in Calgary, Alberta in 1964. Her degree took her from Alberta to British Columbia and eventually to Winnipeg at the Misericordia Hospital in labour delivery. Shortly after she met Ernie and they began their family. Since her retirement from nursing she and Ernie spent many years travelling through the southern states. Lee took pride in her garden, flowers, crocheting and cooking.
The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses at the Health Sciences Centre, Concordia and St. Boniface Hospital for their exceptional care and compassion.
In lieu of flowers, donations to CancerCare Manitoba would be greatly appreciated.

Do not stand at my grave and weep:
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on the snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush.
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
