GINETTE BEDARD
1990 - 2022


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved daughter, sister and auntie.
She is already missed by her mom, Christy; siblings Daniel, and Véronique (Dan); nieces, Elise and Clara; as well as dear friends. Ginette was greeted in Heaven by her beloved dad, Louis; grandparents; and other relatives who predeceased her. Ginette was a quiet, gentle spirit who loved her family, treasured her friends and shared kindness with everyone she met.
Ginette adored being an auntie, and lit up when playing with her nieces. She was their art teacher, a cozy lap to sit in while enjoying a story, and a master at decorating their birthday cakes and cookies. This past summer she and her family enjoyed a cottage holiday in Matlock. Ginette was always in charge of the campfire, and of course, toasted marshmallows.
Ginette loved to draw, sing, camp and spend time with her cherished fur babies, Archie and Harley. As a graphic designer, Ginette used her talents working for Warehouse One. She enjoyed her work, her colleagues, and felt blessed to have a career that allowed her to draw everyday.


Don't think of her as gone away, her journey's just begun - Life holds so many facets, this earth is only one. Just think of her as resting, from the sorrows and the tears - In a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days or years. Think how she must be wishing, that we could know today - How nothing but our sadness can truly pass away. And think of her as living, in the hearts of those she touched - For nothing loved is ever lost, and she was loved so much.


A celebration of Ginette's life will be held Saturday, December 10 at 11:00 a.m. in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 4588 Roblin Blvd.
In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations may be made to The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

  • Christy, Daniel, Veronique, We are so sorry for your loss. Words can never express how deeply saddened we are for you and your family. My apologies for the delay in reaching out, as I just heard about Ginette’s passing. Thinking of you. Auntie Flora, Cheryl and the Dyer family - Posted by: Cheryl Dyer-Vigier (Cousin to her Mom) on: Jan 04, 2023

  • I knew Ginette from 2004-2008 when we were both going to Kelvin High School. We lost direct touch after high school, but a new social media site at the time called Facebook allowed a modicum of connection to remain. I stayed abreast of Ginette's artistically themed posts throughout the years, and was very sad to hear of her recent passing. Ginette and I met in band class in grade 9, and we played together all the way through to grade 12, which included 3 band trips (Minneapolis, Chicago, followed by Minneapolis again). A good memory I had with Ginette was in Grade 11 (early 2007): we walked to my house after school and we played music together in the basement. While waiting for a ride home, she got to know our puppy (at the time) named Beatrix. I recall observing her playing with Beatrix; this moment was emblematic of the kindness and warm positivity she brought with her everywhere she went. I deeply regret not having more recent interactions, but I take solace in the fact that the moments I spent in the presence of Ginette's sunny personality were but slivers of the total warmth and compassion she radiated throughout her lifetime to others. - Posted by: Cameron MacGregor (Friend from high school) on: Dec 08, 2022

  • Christy, Veronique and Daniel, we were all shocked and saddened to hear of Ginette’s passing. Though we lost touch as you children grew up and out of St. Ignatius our memories of Ginette and your family are loving, kind, helpful and family oriented. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love Kelli, Samantha, Joey, Rosanne and Chris. - Posted by: Rosanne Murphy-Janes (Family friend) on: Dec 05, 2022

  • I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Ginette well. She was a student of mine at RRC. She was quiet and very kind. Always eager to learn and improve her design, and was an absolute joy to be around. She will be missed. - Posted by: Ilse (Teacher) on: Dec 03, 2022

  • I’m so sorry for the loss of your beautiful girl. There are no words that I can say to ease your pain. While I did not work directly with Ginette, she was always in the office when I arrived at work. I enjoyed our good morning chats. She is a very kind and helpful soul. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; love leaves a memory no one can steal." Cherish your memories, always.
