Marlene Drewniak, 80, passed away on January 7, 2022, at Vista Park Lodge in Winnipeg.
At her request, no service will be held.
Marlene was born October 13, 1941, in Sundown, MB. Besides her time in a small town, she spent time in Kitchener, ON, and Winnipeg before settling back in Sundown with her husband Metro Drewniak.
Marlene had a passion for painting, with landscapes and animals being her specialty. She was very proud of her skill and was more than eager to show off her latest creations to anyone who happened to be passing by.
Mrs. Drewniak is survived by her sons, Daniel Drewniak and David Drake. She was preceded in death by her parents, Nick and Edna Boychuk; sister, Gladys Wyatt; and husband, Metro (Matt) Drewniak.
Donations may be sent to Parkinson Canada-Winnipeg Office.

Mrs Drewniak, Marlene, was always well-spoken, engaging, a leader while following her own path. My memory of her will always be of an eye-catching hat, a gorgeous outfit, and snazzy frames! May you be reunited with those you miss and loved. - Posted by: Lori-Ann (Friend ) on: Jan 18, 2022
