March 28, 1938 - March 5, 2021

Following a lengthy battle, Marie passed away on March 5, 2021, at the age of 82.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 64 years, Arthur; children, Nicole (Klaus), Diane (Aurele) and Robert; grandchildren, Andrea, Karlese, Patrick and Liane; and five great-grandchildren.
Marie was predeceased by her parents, Antoine and Irma; her sisters, Emilienne and Laurette, and her brother Herve. She will be missed by her brothers and sisters, Luke (Joan), Carmelle, Jules (Jeannette), Annette, Claudette (Jean), Camil (Paulette), Roland (Marilyne), Lynne (Rene) and Richmond (Doris), as well as by many brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.
Marie grew up in St. Malo, Manitoba where she met her husband Arthur. They moved to Winnipeg to begin a new life. Marie's first priority in life was her children and grandchildren.
Marie welcomed family and friends into the home without any hesitation, and was always able to put together a meal and put on a pot of coffee. Marie also had a big heart for anyone who was facing difficulties no matter who they were.
A very long battle with serious medical issues showed her courage in facing these challenges with an amazing attitude and Marie came out a "hero" and stayed strong until the very end.
Our thanks go out to the wonderful staff at Dialysis at the St. Boniface Hospital and to Actionmarguerite St. Boniface for the wonderful care they have given to Marie over the years.
Due to COVID restrictions, a memorial service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Marie's memory to the CancerCare Manitoba or the Kidney Foundation.

  • Mes sympathies à toute la famille. Nous avons de bons souvenirs quand Marie (surtout) et Arthur venait prendre un café chez nos parents, Jean-Baptiste et Méline Courcelles. Marie avait une joie de vivre qui a bien fait rire ma mère. Ma mère a toujours apprécié et considèré Marie une très, très bonne amie. Merci au nom de mes parents pour toutes les bonne mémoires qu’ils ont vécus ensemble. Les trois sont là-haut et vont bien en piquer une bonne jasette. Nos pensées et nos prières vous accompagnent. - Posted by: Denise Vielfaure et Dianne Boily (Voisins sur la rue Notre Dame) on: Mar 14, 2021

  • Marie was our neighbour on rue Notre Dame for 46 years, and we couldn't have asked for a better neighbour. She was the most helpful and kind person. A cup of sugar, an egg, whatever you ran out of, she was right there. She had a joie de vive that always made you feel good. She even tried to teach me to jig, but had little success there. It was a sad day the day we moved. Leo joins me in extending deepest sympathy to her family. You've lost a wonderful mother, but now you have an angel looking down on all of you. - Posted by: Lorraine St Pierre (Friend ) on: Mar 13, 2021
