(nee EXELL)

Sadly, after a short illness, Sharonann Babey passed away on January 11, 2023, at the St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg, at the age of 81 years.
Sharonann will be lovingly remembered and survived by her children, Anna Marie Babey, Paul Babey (Kellyann), Lee-Ann Babey, and Andrea-Michelle Babey; grandchildren, Sarah Case (Ian) and Steven Boyle (Lynn Comberbach); great-granddaughter Mylah Case; sister Valerie Hughes; sister-in-law Olga Bak; brother-in-law Harry Claridge; nieces, Elizabeth Bak, Kathleen Bak (Andrew Wilson), Ady McCormack, and Laura Hughes; and nephews, Andrew Bak (Maria), Jason Hughes (Margie Viernes), and Danny McCormack.
Sharonann was predeceased by her beloved husband, Andrew Paul Babey; parents, Orma and Leonard Exell; sister Maralyn McCormack; in-laws, Anne and Michael Babey; brothers-in-law, Brian Hughes, John Bak, and Roland McCormack; and her son-in-law, Al VanDerLey.
In lieu of flowers or donations, Sharonann wished to echo the sentiments of her mother, Orma. "If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses, and all my prejudice against anyone or anything. If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs you." The family kindly requests that Sharonann's family, friends, and former colleagues take a few minutes to honour her memory by visiting her tribute page.
A celebration of Sharonann's life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 13, 2023 at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Ave., followed by an interment of her ashes with her husband, Andrew in the Assumption Cemetery.
