SHIRLEY MAE JESKE
(nee MAYNER)

Our family is deeply saddened to announce the sudden passing of Shirley Mae, in the early morning hours of Thursday, September 23, 2021 after a brief illness, at the age of 78, in the Health Sciences Centre.
Shirley was predeceased by her sister-in-law Constance Drebit. Left to cherish her memory and love is her husband Barry of 55 years; daughter June (Perry) McMahon; sons, B. Dean Jeske and Perry Jeske; grandchildren, Dr. Kristin (Vincent) McMahon and Andrew (friend Makenna) McMahon; brother Raymond (Monique) Mayner; brother in-law Steve Drebit; many nieces, great-nieces, nephews and great-nephews, as well our extended family of Joan Trombo.
Shirley was born in Vita, Manitoba on June 17, 1943 and grew up in Overstoneville, Manitoba. Shirley worked at Charison's Turkey Hatchery for over 30 years, was so proud to be part of the company and made life long friends.
Shirley's first love was her deep devotion to her family. She never missed a single event her kids and grandkids did, whether it be sports (many many sports), music, arts, or birthday parties. She loved to read and never complained when Kristin and Andrew asked her to read a book for the 100th time. She loved to travel, going on many cruises and visited many counties. She loved to go camping with family and friends, playing cards into the wee hours of the night with friends, but most of all, she enjoyed visiting with people, as Shirley genuinely cared and loved everyone.
Shirley was well known as one of the social butterflies of Teulon. She loved meeting and chatting with people, whether it was someone she just met, or someone she has known all of her life. By the end of the conversation, no matter how brief, she made a person feel special, joyful that you spent time with her.
Besides loving her many roles as a Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Niece, Cousin, Friend, Co-worker, one role she thoroughly enjoyed and excelled at, was that of Hostess. She made certain that everyone who came to her house for a meal, or even only for a coffee, that they were greeted always with a smile and friendly hug. And she also made certain that no one left her house hungry. If anyone would need help or assistance for any reason, she would be the first one in line to provide it, without hesitation.
The family would like to thank the doctors and staff of the Stonewall Hospital, Health Sciences Centre and STARS for their care and compassion in looking after mom.
There has been a private graveside funeral following Shirley's wishes. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Peter Lutheran Church Memorial Fund, Box 94, Teulon, MB or Teulon Healthcare Foundation Inc., Box 312, Teulon, MB R0C 3B0 or The Kidney Foundation of Manitoba, or a charitable organization of your choice.

To Shirley Mae
May the Lord bless you and keep you
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you
May the Lord give you peace. Amen.
We love you Shirley Mae.

  • Our sincere sympathy to you June and Perry and your dad. I have no words to express how deeply we were saddened to hear of your moms passing. She was a beautiful person inside and out .There was never a time that she didn’t go out of her way to say hello and ask how my family was doing. She was such a caring person and will miss her deeply. Ican't imagine how all of you feel. Our condolences to all of you at this difficult time. - Posted by: Wayne and Michelle Hazelton (Friend) on: Oct 09, 2021
