June 1, 1934 – November 24, 2020

With her children by her side, Mom passed peacefully at Stonewall Hospital.
Mom was predeceased by her parents, Alf and Jean Gisti. Her beloved son, Gord and her first husband, Ken Eyolfson. Mom was also predeceased by her sister and brother-in-law, Audrey and Raymond Pepin, and sisters-in-law, Marlene Gisti and Edith Carman.
Leaving to mourn Mom, is her son, Warren (Alana) Eyolfson and their family, Justin (Kelsey) and Cody (Kaylee) from Boise, Idaho. Mom was blessed with three daughters and told us all the time how lucky she was to have us. Missing her terribly are Lori (Bill) Mott and their family Michael (Jess) and Christopher (Ashley); Patti (Steve) Harder and their son Liam and Maureen (Grant) McKague and Moms only granddaughters Taryn and Sarra.
Also mourning Mom's loss are her brother Martin Gisti (Della) and sister Margaret (Paul) Veldkamp and brother-in-law Maurice Carman as well as many nieces and nephews. Mom had some very special friends in her life, there wasn't a day that went by without a call from Joyce Olsen, Mom loved you so. Also, Aunty Dee Weins you were always so dear to Mom. There are many others, too many to mention but you know who you are.
Mom was born June 1, 1934 in a very different world than we live in now. She was born a premature baby, which was quite a hardship in those days. Mom was a very hard worker. She worked on the farm while raising five kids and quite often worked at a job outside of the home as well. And while she did this, she always made sure we had a home cooked supper and she would even sew matching outfits for her girls. Mom's passion was to bake and she was an amazing baker. Her lemon pies were like none other. There were always cinnamon buns, cookies and pastries galore. No one left her home without a sample or a take home package.
Mom was an avid sports fan, didn't matter what, just sports. Even the odd boxing match or two. You will never find a bigger Jennifer Jones, Winnipeg Jets or Blue Bombers fan. How fitting that she passed on the first anniversary of the Bombers winning the Grey Cup.
Mom moved into Gateway Manor in Teulon, in May 2018. She absolutely loved it there and she made many good friends. Mom loved that she could play Bingo almost every day. She even received a certificate for being the worst dart player in their activities!
Sadly, her declining health forced her into Stonewall Hospital in April 2020. Mom has been in Stonewall Hospital since then and was there when she passed. We the family are so grateful to all the staff who treated her so kindly and made the hospital Mom's home. Thank you also to Ken Loehmer for his care and compassion during this difficult time.
In keeping with Mom's wishes there will be no service, and due to COVID-19 regulations we will do a private graveside service when we can all gather together.

God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So he put His arms around you and whispered "come to me"
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer and saw you slowly fade away. Although we loved you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands put to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. "Rest in Peace Ma"

  • God Speed Junebug, it was my nickname for her. At a time when I needed someone's guidance and help she called me up to ask if I could fill her spot cooking at the manor. Then I was lucky enough to have her Mom teach me how to make the best scalloped potatoes!
