Cecile was born to Emile and Emma Coppens on February 19, 1930 in Swan Lake, MB. She moved to Treherne, MB at a very young age where she resided, until she married Jim Carter in 1950. Together they moved to Winnipeg. Jim and Cecile were blessed with four children; Murray (Wenda), Deanna (Larry), Randy and Valerie (Paul).
She was predeceased by her parents, husband Jim, eldest son Murray, daughter Deanna and brothers, Harry and George.
She is survived by her children, Randy and Valerie, grandson Jason (Michelle) and her great-grandson Evan. Also surviving is sister-in-law Annette Coppens and brother-in-law Leo Durand. She will be fondly remembered numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Cecile was a stay at home mom until 1971 when she started working at Sears. Mom loved gardening, music and laughing. She had a great sense of humour and a strong sense of family.
Mom enjoyed her final years living independently at the St. James Kiwanis Courts.
We would like to thank Palliative Manitoba and MAID for all their assistance and support.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Siloam Mission.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
