Marie Phyllis Luten sadly passed away at the Foothills Hospital, Calgary, August 27, 2020.
Marie was born September 8, 1930, at Alonsa, MB, the youngest of 10 siblings, a child of the Great Depression. After enduring many moves overseas and across this country Mom eventually moved back to Manitoba, living in Winnipeg and working in the hospitality industry.
Fiercely independent she never missed a day to be outdoors - if not walking her rescue dogs then on her bicycle interacting with everyday people, well into her 80s.
We would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and staff at the Foothills Hospital for their care and compassion.
Mom was predeceased by her parents, William and Lucy Annie Chesla; nine brothers and sisters, two sons, Wayne (1950) and Douglas (2007).
Left to celebrate her life are son Richard; daughter Kathy (Eric); grandchildren, Cecilia (Adam), Roger (Sam), and two great-grandchildren.
Mom will be interred at Glen Lawn Funeral Home, Winnipeg, MB. No service will be held.
If friends so wish donations may be made to an animal rescue.
