THERESE PELLERIN (BAZIN)
Born: Apr 14, 1930
Date of Passing: Mar 05, 2021Offer Condolences or Memory Make a donation to St. Boniface Hospital Foundation
She will be greatly missed by her daughters, Julie (Diane), Lorraine (John), and Yvonne (Mike). Also cherishing her memory are her six grandchildren, Robert (Alisha), Christopher (Brittany), Heather (Jorge), Michelle (Greg), Craig (Cassie), and Kirk (Stephanie); and her great-grandchildren, Haylee, Cole, Camryn, Ryan and Max. Terry is also survived by her sister Lucille Nakoneshny (Wally), and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her loving husband Ernie in 1983 and her companion Bill in 2019.
She was born in Notre Dame de Lourdes, Manitoba to parents, Leon and Germaine Bazin, on April 14, 1930. She grew up in St. Claude, Manitoba, moving to Winnipeg to take her training at the St. Boniface Hospital, graduating with a diploma in X-Ray Technology. She worked at Corne and Leighman and then for many years at the St. Boniface Clinic until her retirement in 1990.
She met the love of her life, Ernie, and they were married a short time after in August 1955. Together they raised their family in St. Vital. Along with their three children, they spent much of their time camping and travelling. Unfortunately their dreams of travelling the world together would not be realized with the sudden passing of Ernie.
She was diagnosed with MS in her forties but she never let it slow her down. She pushed herself to the limit every day and will be remembered for her strong will, determination and fierce spirit.
Mom met Bill in 1987 and together they spent many summers in Spruce Sands on Lake Winnipeg. They spent their time playing cards, doing jigsaw puzzles and enjoying happy hours. During the winter they spent their time square dancing at various community clubs. Following her retirement, she enjoyed travelling abroad to many places around the world which also included cruises and bus trips. Her family was most important to her; she always looked forward to visits from her children and grandkids. She enjoyed crocheting, reading and music, and was an avid supporter of all Winnipeg sports teams.
The family expresses their sincere thanks and gratitude to the amazing staff at the St. Boniface Hospital 8th floor palliative care ward for their kind and compassionate care, with special thanks to Dr. Crawford.
In accordance with Terry's wishes, cremation has taken place. Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions a Celebration of Life will be held at a future date.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the MS Society or the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation Palliative Care or to a charity of your own choice.

My deepest sympathies to Terrys family. Terry was a most wonderful thoughtful person and I’m deeply saddened with her passing. I treasure the time we spent together - Precious memories. - Posted by: Jill Oakes (Friend) on: Jun 18, 2022
I am sorry to hear of the passing of this feisty, courageous, kind lady. My mother, Eileen, who died in 2012, was a friend of Terry's for many years. They originally met through their husbands when they were all young adults. She and Terry quickly became fast friends through shared interests and values. My mother always spoke highly of Terry and clearly appreciated their relationship. I remember Terry as a vivacious, friendly person with a ready smile and laugh. My heartfelt condolences go to her family members. - Posted by: Kathy Mestery (Daughter of a friend of Terry's) on: Mar 21, 2021

I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a lovely kind lady, and her and the whole family were very special to the Mestery's. I remember our parents getting together to play card, so much laughter. A particularly special memory is going to see Blazing Saddles together-so fun. My thoughts are with the whole family at this difficult time. - Posted by: Chris Matiation (Friend) on: Mar 13, 2021
On behalf of our family I extend our deepest sympathy. We met your mother through our mom, Ida Mager. They traveled to South America together and we sat with her at the Goldeyes games. Terry was a good friend to our mom. She was a lovely lady. - Posted by: Eileen Mager Batt (Friend ) on: Mar 13, 2021
I am happy to have had the pleasure of knowing Terry. What a beautiful woman she is! We had lots of laughs and shared many secrets together. She did love her Winnipeg Jets though! And those carrots, Terry --well- I will plant a row just for you this year and hopefully they will grow. Rest peacefully, my dear! - Posted by: Sheila Selluski (front desk ) on: Mar 13, 2021
My sincere condolences to all the family....you all have written a beautiful tribute to your mom. The picture is how I remember her. Losing a mom is very hard and I pray for strength for all you but remember you all have such beautiful memories in your heart of her support and love...that will sustain you..with time. I was not aware of how many great-grand children Aunt Terry had....how wonderful for all of you. Our mom’s sure had some wonderful travels together and enjoyed meeting each other often...now they are two Angels in heaven. Sending you all my love and a virtual BIG hug. - Posted by: Suzanne Ahlabaum (Cousin) on: Mar 13, 2021
My sincere condolences regarding the passing of your Mom, Terry. Our Moms enjoyed many a cup of coffee together during the week chatting, not mention the many times our parents got together for good times and a few cocktails. Your Mom was a wonderful person and I know she will be missed. - Posted by: Debra Sawatzky (Friend) on: Mar 13, 2021
