INETTE JOICE ASMUNDSON
February 15, 1937 - January 4, 2022


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Inette Joice Asmundson, on Tuesday, January 4, 2022, at the Stonewall and District Health Centre.
Inette was born in the Community of Dunston, Manitoba, on February 15, 1937, to Helena and Adolf Holtz. She was the fourth oldest of seven children raised on the farm, Vera, Violet, Kenneth, Evelyn, James and Myrna. Inette attended Shannon School where she received her grade one to nine education. The community was eight miles from Morden, so she had to leave home at an early age to pursue her high school education in Morden. Inette went on to Normal School (Teachers College) and began her career in Piney. This is where she met her husband Edward Carl Asmundson. They both loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing and operated an outfitting service for hunters. They enjoyed competitive trap shooting, winning provincial championships and making new friends all over Manitoba. After teaching for 37 years, she retired with her husband in Piney. She loved being involved in the community as school trustee, secretary for the curling club and community church, palliative volunteer, but most of all she loved her music and art. Inette would sing and play her guitar in church, senior homes and private gatherings. She was a very talented artist, over the years she donated numerous paintings for fundraisers. Her compassion for animals had no boundaries. She loved watching and attending her grandchildren's hunting and sports events. Of all the titles and accomplishments, she acquired in her life becoming a grandmother and great-grandmother was her proudest. Edward passed away in 2001 and she continued living in their home until four years ago. Inette moved closer to her daughter in Stonewall, Manitoba, and resided in Lions Manor where she met and enjoyed all her new friends and neighbours.
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Glenda and son-in-law Serge Lajoie, her dearly loved grandchildren: Miranda (Bryn) Lindsay; great-grandchildren: Krew, Locke and Gianna; grandson Paul (Alyssa), stepgranddaughters: Michelle (Scotte) Taylor; great-grandchildren: Kian, Kade and Koen, and Mandi (Kris) Scoran; great-grandchildren: Taryn, Talia, Taya and Knox.
Inette is survived by her sisters, Evelyn Otto of Ashern, Manitoba, Myrna (Oscar) Coyle of St. Albert, Alberta; and sister-in-law Yvonne Holtz of Airdrie, Alberta. She will also be lovingly remembered by her brother-in-law Gordon (Brandi); sisters-in-law, Louise, Mavis, Winnie, Edna, Grace (Helmar), and Eileen; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
The family would like to give a special thank you to the staff of Lions Manor, where she lived in her final years. We would also like to thank Dr. Hicks and the staff of the Stonewall District Health Centre for all their care and compassion over Inette's final days.
If friends so desire in lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Inette can be made to the Badger Cemetery or Piney Community Church.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • My sincerest sympathies are with you during this difficult time. Your Mother was a wonderful woman, full of strength and goodness. I enjoyed visits with her at her home in Piney. I will not forget her beautiful voice when she sang at my mother’s funeral. My thoughts are with Myrna and Evelyn as well God Bless Trudy - Posted by: Trudy (Coyle) Waters (Friend) on: Jan 10, 2022

  • When you've known someone since you were 5 years old, it's hard to know where to start. Inette was such a wonderful teacher. My favorite thing was her singing and playing her guitar for us. I can still remember parts of the songs she sang. She was so kind and loving to a bunch of young children. I have a piece of limestone that she had painted and was given to me by my grandmother. I will cherish it even more now. Cathy and I would like to offer our most sincere condolences to Glenda and the entire family. Rest in Peace, Mrs. Asmundson. - Posted by: Tracy Wiwchar (Student, later on, friend) on: Jan 09, 2022

  • Our heartfelt condolences go out to Glenda, Serge and family. Inette was such a wonderful, friendly, kind person. She was like a ray of sunshine every time I saw her, with her beautiful smile and engaging personality. I am so honored to own one of her beautiful rock painting works of art! She will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure to know her. May the wonderful memories of Inette help you through this difficult time. - Posted by: Linda and Bruce Huewan (Friends of Glenda and Serge) on: Jan 09, 2022

  • Inette was a very remarkable and caring person, As a teacher, she had a natural ability to connect with the children and the their parents. She was the skilled "Outdoors's Woman" who endured many hunting and fishing adventures. She was a "crackshot" on the trapshooting range. Always with a smile and always with a positive attitude, she would help with community events. She will be missed as her warm and friendly personality touched everyone she met. Rest in peace Inette. - Posted by: Jack Kowalchuk (Friend) on: Jan 08, 2022
