LUCILLE JOAN LEIBERT
1934 - 2021
Lucille was born November 28, to Francis and Peter Kresky and grew up in the North End of Winnipeg to which Cliff and Lucille purchased their first house in 1955, the year they were married. Lucille had many cherished lifelong friends from those years. In 1961, they moved to Transcona for a bigger home and raised their family in the community to which they enjoyed actively participating in. Lucille worked in the Transcona School Division as a secretary for Radisson and Wayoata Schools until her retirement in 1985. Lucille was happiest spending time with her family and friends. Their photo albums capture celebrations at Winnipeg Beach, Belair, by the backyard pool and in Clearwater, Florida - along with many vacations with family and friends. Cliff and Lucille especially enjoyed their trips together to Hawaii.
Lucille was predeceased by her loving husband Clifford (2010) and mother (2014). She is survived by her sons, Charles (Julie) and Lawrence (Andrea); treasured grandchildren, Jason (A.D.), Jillian (Jack), and Jessica (Nate); brother Richard (Joanne); Laurie; great-grandchildren, Sloane, Kynlie, Norah, Sophia; her nieces and nephews, as well friends who were blessed to know her.
A kind thanks to the Palliative Team at Riverview Health Centre for their loving care for Lucille in the final days of her life.
The family will be holding a private interment in the spring.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Lucille's memory may be made to the organization of your choice.

Lucille was a long time very dear friend. I got to know her when I started cleaning for her and Cliff maybe years ago. Lucille was one of the sweetest, kindness people I've been blessed to meet. Truly enjoyed our chats as I was cleaning. Going to miss her so very much. May you rest in peace!! Love always. ❣️❤️ - Posted by: Anna Friesen (Friend ) on: Dec 25, 2021
Thinking of your family and offering condolences. Ken met Cliff through work at Canadian Publishers and soon became friends sharing a love of the outdoors. As couples, we enjoyed times together at company events and social visits. A big highlight for Cliff and Ken was their exciting fishing trip to Alaska. On their return we all got together to enjoy a wonderful meal of BBQ Salmon and Dolly Varden trout. Such wonderful memories! In the Spring Ken and Cliff also enjoyed heading out to his cottage for sucker fishing and a bottle of vodka! Cliff’s enthusiasm for his backyard pool resulted in us putting in one for our kids to enjoy. Over the years we kept in touch. I talked to Lucille last Christmas to see how she was managing life in the pandemic. She was always so cheerful. She loved her family dearly and always updated their lives to me with so much pride and joy. May your memories bring you much comfort.
