It is with profound sadness that we inform you Priscille Poirier (nee Lapointe) passed away peacefully October 28, 2020, with her children, Mitchell, Donald and Corine, by her side.
Priscille was loved and cherished by all who knew her. She grew up in Laurier, Manitoba in a large, loving family. As a young woman, Priscille travelled to Snow Lake, Manitoba, then The Pas, Manitoba where she met her husband and partner Clayton ("Porky"), then settling in Thompson, Manitoba to raise her family, before moving to Powerview, Manitoba, and finally retiring to Neepawa. Most recently she lived in Winnipeg.
She thoroughly enjoyed her life, savouring her relationships with those she loved; and was blessed with adventures, long friendships, a long career, and close family. Her gentle nature and strength will always be remembered, and she will be greatly missed.
With consideration for the health and safety of all, her family has deferred a celebration of her life until 2021.

Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • I was so very sorry to hear of Priscille‚Äôs death. I met your mom when I taught in Thompson. I was a first year teacher and she was so kind and helpful. One summer after I had left Thompson your mom came and stayed with me while she took a course at the University of Manitoba. I remember that Mitchell stayed for some of the time and Don for a night or two. It was later that I met Corine when she was staying in residence at the U of M. Through the years Priscille and I exchanged Christmas cards and letters where she shared news of her children. My thoughts are with all of you. She was a wonderful person and I know she will be missed deeply. - Posted by: Barb Jones (Friend) on: Nov 24, 2020
