February 10, 1945 – October 29, 2021

With great sadness we announce the passing of our Mom, Mother-In-law, Nana, Great-Nana, Aunt and Friend, Marilyn, of Inwood, MB at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, MB.
Left to cherish her memory are Lisa (Darryl) - grandchildren, Amber (Todd), great-grandson Levi; Alexander, Karl and Kristina; Sonny (Arlie) - grandchildren, Brady and Riley; Jack - grandchildren, Raelyne (Lance) great-granddaughter Kenzie, Bradon (Jen) great-granddaughters, Callie and Kylee. Also lovingly remembered by nephew Darren (Wendy and family), niece Nikki (Wes and family); special friends, Barb Skogan and Lynne Hewertson, as well as the coffee crew at Rosie's Café, neighbours, friends and extended family.
Mom was predeceased by our dad Guy, in 2005 and our sister Colleen in 2020, her sister Bev in 2009, her parents, Alfred and Virginia and in-laws, Sadie and Frank.
Mom was raised on Castle Avenue in Elmwood by her parents, Virginia (nee Maxwell) and Alfred. Mom and Dad met while working at Northern Messenger, were married in 1966 and moved to Inwood in 1968. Mom and Dad owned and operated Interlake Water Supply after the passing of our Papa Frank in 1974. Mom was active in the community volunteering to run the Sports Club and Elks Bingos and assisting the Gethsemane Lutheran Church. Mom and Dad decided early on in their marriage that travelling was a priority for them and their adventures included several trips to Las Vegas to play the slots, a memorable trip to Hawaii, several winters in Arizona and many trips to local Casinos to play loonies. Our family travels included Calgary, South Dakota, Disneyland and many camping and fishing trips.
Mom remained in our family home for over 53 years, she always told us she would live no where else, Inwood was home and she loved her house and was comfortable there with her routine.
We would like to acknowledge and thank the many medical professionals at both the Health Sciences Centre and Ericksdale - E.M. Crowe Memorial Hospital for showing so much compassion and care to our Mom over the several weeks before her passing. We also wish to acknowledge the support Mom received over the years by the caring staff of the Manitoba Renal Program, the Kidney Foundation and Transplant Manitoba, as well as many home care professionals who aided Mom and made her stay at home possible
If friends so desire, please donate to The Kidney Foundation of Canada - Manitoba Branch in Mom's memory and please consider registering at to be an organ and tissue donor to give the gift of life.
Mom you made sure we all knew how much we were loved through the years by your smile, your hugs and your cookies. I will miss our daily phone calls and Sonny will miss his evening coffee with you.

Rest in peace Mom, we love you,
you will be missed so much.

To the world you are a mother
To our family you are the world

A celebration of Mom's life will be announced at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • Sonny, our hearts go out to you and your entire family. Your Mom was a wonderful caring person in every way to everyone. We will always remember the good times we had with your Mom & Dad around their kitchen table. - Posted by: Jim & Vicki Einarson (friends & Godparents) on: Nov 15, 2021

  • Although I never got to meet your mom, Lisa, it is clear what a remarkable woman she was. My Narcisse childhood gives me a special understanding of your parents' love for Inwood, where my uncle Peter Masniuk and his wife Rose spent most of their married lives -- the two families would, I am sure, have known one another. Thank you for your tributes to your mom on Facebook and Passages which gave me a chance to know and appreciate her. - Posted by: Trish (Patricia) Masniuk (postal union activist alongside daughter Lisa Rohne Peterson) on: Nov 15, 2021
