It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Reine Nesbitt, aged 91, at Grace Hospice.
Reine will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Cheryl Sarvis (Gord), son Wayne Nesbitt (Gail) as well as her grandchildren, Robert, Leanne, Steven and Sarah; and her sister-in-law Jeanette Therrien.
She was predeceased by her husband Robert, parents, Alphonse Therrien and Doralice Marcoux, sisters, Florence Therrien, Lea Congram, and Imelda Perreault and brother Guy Therrien.
Reine was born in Lorette, Manitoba. During her life she had various jobs, but mostly at Manitoba Telephone System where she worked as a paralegal for 19 years before retiring in 1987.
On November 26, 1955, she married Robert in Winnipeg on Grey Cup Day. She was an excellent baker and, like her sisters, she always ensured that her home was immaculate and well organized.
Her happiest times were at the cottage at Baie St Paul, Manitoba. Robert and Reine spent a lot of their time gardening and caring for their yard. She loved to walk and watch her favourite sports on TV. She loved her music, the theatre and Broadway musicals.
Cremation has taken place and a service will be held at a later date (to be determined).
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and healthcare aids at Riverview Palliative Care Centre and Grace Hospice.
Flowers gratefully declined. Donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba or a charity of your choice.
The loss of your mother, no matter how old you are, changes your life forever. Your mother is your first and forever friend. You never really get over the loss, but you learn to live with it. She is never far away from your thoughts, and she is always in your heart.
We love you mom. Be good!

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Deepest Sympathy Cheryl & Wayne on you Mom's passing. I have such great memories of Auntie Reine and Uncle Bob's farm visits each summer as kids, Cheryl, you were such a challenge for her to keep cleaned up, I think it was your goal to get as dirty as possible! Lol And when you 2 would climb the highest tree or swing out of the loft door on a old rope! Oh boy! Your poor mom! It was great entertainment for us bored farm kids! Your mom was a great coach for me when I cared for Kenny she could somehow keep him in line! Lol she just told him how things where and he listened. I'm sure they are still having those talks! Take care and treasure your memories of your mom & dad close, they were the best! Love & hugs Merla, Rod & family. - Posted by: Merla Lenuik (Niece) on: Jul 06, 2021

  • Reine and I worked together in the Legal Department at Manitoba Telephone System many years ago. We became very good friends and in fact when I had my first daughter she was given the middle name “Reine”. Our husbands also became friends and we often socialized as couples and even bought our new homes only a few blocks from each other in Winnipeg. Reine and I continued to keep in touch after I moved from Winnipeg in 1988. I will miss our letters and phone calls through the years. I’m thankful for having this wonderful lady as my friend and she will always be in my heart. Sending condolences to Cheryl and Wayne and all the family.
