(nee LENART)
May 11, 1934 - November 29, 2021

Resilient to the end, Mae passed away peacefully, with grace and dignity on November 29, supported by her loving family and outstanding healthcare team. Mae's beloved Sidney (Zip), husband of 58 years, predeceased her in 2011.
Mae was a trailblazer, a woman of many talents and interests who never stopped learning. She established her agency, Maylen Sales, in a male dominated field selling hardware for 35 years. She worked in real estate for several years, completed numerous certifications and courses always expanding her knowledge of the world.
Mae's greatest joy was her family and enjoyed creating special knitted projects for them. Each was a labour of love and will be appreciated even more now.
Mourning her loss are her children, Grant and Marim, Murray and Esther, and Bradley; 11 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; the families of sisters-in-law, Sylvia Ratner and Edith Zipursky; cousins, Gail, Amy and David Dorfman and their extended families.
The family is grateful for the care, compassion, and respect received from the healthcare team at Grace Hospice for the past six months. Thank you to the caring doctors, home care staff, and Palliative and Hospice teams that have aided Mae for the past 17 years.
Should you wish to honour Mae's memory, donations can be made to Palliative Manitoba or Jewish Child and Family Services, Winnipeg.

  • Mae was a wonderful person. We attended aqua classes several times a week at the Wellness Institute for many years. We always had time to chat before and after classes and was able to share our lives. I will miss her dearly. I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to the family.
