On November 8, 2020, Vina Ellen Kay Main (McMillan) passed away at her home after a brief illness with pancreatic cancer.
She is survived by her loving husband Bruce of 67 years, their children, David (Susan), Nancy (John), and Rob; grandchildren, Daniel (Brittany), Crystal (Mitch), Scott (Kayla), and James; and great-grandchildren, Zoey and Gemma. She loved each and every one of them.
Vina was a longtime resident of West Kildonan. She attended Centennial School, Victory School for one year, and then back to Centennial School where she was the valedictorian during her graduation year.
Music was always a part of her life. She sang in the choirs at Kildonan United Church, Windsor Park United Church, ending with the highlight of her singing with Carole Stone and The Sisters of the Holy Rock for 18 years.
Her childhood friends, Dorothy Barron, Quede Anderson, and the late Marg Sikorski remained in her life and in her heart until her passing.
Church involvement was always a part of her life from a young age. She was a faithful member, and involved in many capacities, at Springs Church from 1999 until her passing.
Mom took pride in creating a welcoming home and garden to anyone that wanted to visit. There were always fresh baking available and fresh cut flowers to view.
Vina played bridge for many years, and she would find a game somewhere. She always looked forward to her Monday afternoon bridge ladies, where she was fiercely competitive.
Bruce wants to personally thank her many friends and neighbours, Springs Church, and the outstanding efforts of Nancy and John during the last few years and bringing this sad event to a conclusion.
In keeping with the current health restrictions, a memorial and small graveside service will be held on July 21, 2021 at 12:00 noon at Old Kildonan Cemetery. Service will be conducted by Pastor Jeff Romus and singing by Debbie Anderson, both of Springs Church.

Every man's life ends the same way.
It is only the details of how he lived
and how he died that distinguish one
man from another.

  • How sad to have to lost you so fast. I wish things were different then, as I do now. It is unfortunate that in keeping with provincial regulations, more of us might have been allowed to attend. Truly sad the way this turned out, as you deserved a more honorable fate. I hope you find happiness and everlasting peace. We all miss you mom.
