1945 - 2022

With heavy hearts we are sorry to announce the peaceful passing of Marie Anne McRae, who had both her sons by her side at the Stonewall Hospital, on Wednesday, July 6, 2022.
Marie was predeceased by her husband of 51 years, John.
Marie was 76 years old and left behind her two sons: Les, his fiancé Michelle Leclerc and their children, Austin and Madison; Lee, his wife Tayvia and their children, Alayna and Olivia, along with many family and friends.
Marie was a Registered Nurse for 50 plus years who had worked at many hospitals until she retired to start community nursing with Interlake Regional Health doing home care. Marie loved nursing and helping everyone around her. It wasn't uncommon to see her removing stitches from people or fixing up cuts and scrapes from her kids and others from the community. Marie didn't just do her job as a nurse she excelled in it because of her passion to help everyone. Even in her last months she made sure everyone was taken care of including her own home care ladies. She was the most compassionate, caring person who touched the lives of everyone around her.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba, Children's Rehabilitation Foundation or Meadow Lea Church.
Viewing will be on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. at MacKenzie Funeral Chapel, Stonewall, Manitoba.
Memorial service will be Thursday, July 14, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. at the Meadow Lea Hall in Marquette, Manitoba.

  • One of our earliest memories of Marie was her legendary appetite. In our younger days (before children) we nicknamed Marie - Mikey. Mikey was a kid who had a huge appetite, was always hungry & finished off everyone’s meals. When we went out for a meal Marie could out eat every guy at the table! Leftovers - give them to Mikey! Can’t finish a meal - give it to Mikey! Something left in that bowl? Mikey will clean it up! Mikey was our little go to cleaner upper & probably weighed 98 pounds soaking wet! My latest memory was just a few weeks ago - I had taken Marie to a medical appointment & her oxygen was acting up - I was worried & rushed her home breaking a few speed limits on the way. She tried to convince me all was fine, but she was in distress. When we got home I texted Les to come over. I tried to make light of the situation, but she was angry with me. I got one of her famous “if looks could kill” looks - that piercing stare that could make you run for cover. I’m sure Les, Lee & Johnny got that look many times. She was fiercely independent & valued her freedom & I’m sorry if I took that from you that day Marie. Rest In Peace sis. - Posted by: Archie & Edna mcrae (In laws) on: Jul 12, 2022
