April 21, 1950 - January 5, 2022

Peacefully, surrounded by her family, Viney was released from her struggle with COPD.
She leaves to mourn her children, Jason (Lisa) and Viney (Someth); grandchildren, Taylor, Alyssa (Nic), Hailey (Kody), Kai and Quinn; special cousin Gerie; as well as nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Special thanks to her niece Lisa for her support.
Viney was predeceased by her parents, Charles and Ida; her brothers, David (Yvette) and Barry (Maria); special Aunt Viney (Charlie); nephew Jeffrey; great-niece Jamie; as well as her beloved pets, Sylvester, Dixie, Tawny, Bella, Will and Molly. Greatest of all losses was her beloved husband, partner and friend Lyle in 1990, for whom she grieved for the rest of her life.
Mom was born and raised in Transcona, of which she was very proud. She attended Central School and Transcona Collegiate Institute and sailed to Europe several times with her beloved Aunt Viney and Uncle Charlie. Her family cottage at Ottermere and then at Lakeshore Heights held many fond memories.
She met Dad at 20, and love bloomed. Children followed, as well as pets, family parties, family camping trips and lots of fun and laughter. She inherited her beloved Aunt Viney's cabin at Lakeshore Heights, and we continued to make friends and memories there.
After the sudden loss of Dad, she managed to hold us together and still give us our best start in life, for which we are forever grateful.
Mom loved family, friends, and fun. She loved laughter and silliness. This attitude kept her going after her loss, but in her heart she was only waiting to see him again. We take comfort knowing they are now together, never to be separated again.

  • Viney and I were best friends as kids growing up on Whittier Avenue East. How we loved to play dolls in the front porch of that big white house. So many years and adventures growing up in that neighborhood. The big house fascinated the rest of us on the street who all lived in single family dwellings while Viney's family had "residents" Viney and I were best buds as kids and did reconnect for a short while just a few years ago. So sad that you are gone. Rest in peace my friend! - Posted by: Liz Tyndall ( Jarvis ) (childhood friend) on: Jan 15, 2022

  • Some of my fondest memories are the times spent with my aunt and uncle Lyle playing with Jason and Viney, just hanging out laughing and enjoying each other’s company. It was a feeling of love & true family. Those memories I hold dear in my heart. I often think back on those good times and am so grateful to have experienced them. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Jason & Viney, and your beautiful families. So proud to call you family and sending all my love during this immense time of grieving. Please take comfort knowing your mom and dad are together again. Love you all. - Posted by: Lisa Shmon (Niece and cousin ) on: Jan 15, 2022
