CONSTANCE CARRIE MUTON It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Constance Carrie Muton on February 15, 2003, in her 100th year. Connie was a gentle, warm lady with a wonderful sense of humour, she was born on December 11, 1902 in England. At a young age she moved to Winnipeg with her mother Emily Elliott and her twin brother, Roland. Her mother remarried and the family moved to a farm in rural Manitoba, where Connie began a lifelong friendship with her beloved friend Violet Swanson. Connie then began to work for W.J. Christie and Company Ltd., where she met her future husband, Stanley Muton. During their years together Stan (Bus) was a Major in the Fort Garry Horse, and he and Connie played a large part in many regimental activities. They lived for many years on Niagara Street in River Heights, where they enjoyed entertaining family and friends. Connie formed a special bond with her niece Patricia Pratt while Patricia lived with them on Niagara Street, while going to school. Pat and Connie spent many Christmases together in California after Bus passed away. Connie enjoyed spending many holidays in Victoria with her brother Roll and his wife Marie. She was always so filled with joy and happiness over the wonderful times she had shared while visiting Roll and Marie. Connie was a long and devoted member of St. Matthews Anglican Church, and often spoke of how important a role that St. Matthews played in her life. She made many special friends, like Pat Boyd and Rev. Canon Peter Flynn, who helped her through her times of grieving, when she lost members of her family. She lived in St. James for her later years and the last few years were spent at Tuxedo Villa Nursing Home, where she was treated with dignity and kindness. Connie was predeceased by her husband Stanley, her mother Emily Elliott, her brother Roll, her sister-in-law Marie, her niece Pat Pratt and her beloved friend Violet Swanson. Special thanks to the nurses and staff at Tuxedo Villa for all their care and kindness over the last few years. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held on Thursday, March 6 at 2:00 p.m. in St. Matthews Anglican Church, 641 St. Matthews Ave., with Rev. Peter Flynn officiating.
