AMIE MARY MAZUR (nee GRAF) Our dear and devoted wife, mother and grandmother, Amie passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 23, 2004 with her husband, Michael of 64 years by her side. Amie was born in Winnipeg, December 15, 1913. She spent her younger years living in rural Manitoba in the Roblin area. She grew up surrounded by a large family that included mother Mary, father Jacob, sister Bertha and brothers, Fred, Sam, August, Ross and Victor. She met husband Mike when he was a young teacher and they married on May 24, 1940. They lived in smaller centres throughout western Manitoba before moving to Winnipeg in 1948 settling into the East Kildonan area in 1949, where her two sons Barry and Tom were raised. Amie was very active in her neighbourhood. She was involved in many aspects of the community especially the Bronx Park Community Centre where she was part of everything from the craft sales to Tuesday Night Bingos to being president of the centre. She also worked in the area and especially loved the time she spent at Highway Florists. Amie was a very talented and gifted lady. She was an amazing cook whose perogies and cabbage rolls were renowned. She had a creative side, especially in handcrafting items. Her hand knitted sweaters were amazing and were the pride of their owners. Amie loved to bowl and did so well into her 80s. She loved the league she bowled with, the Manitoba Teachers Wives Association. But, her greatest gift was her love of people and the kindness and loyalty she gave to her friends and family. Amie love to travel and through the years visited Mexico, cruised to Alaska, travelled the provinces visiting family and went across Canada, coast to coast, on summer holidays camping and fishing with her husband and sons. And, Amie loved to fish. She enjoyed this with the type of passion she had for many activities. Whatever Amie did she did with enthusiasm including reading romance novels. Amie loved life and the people she shared it with. She will be sadly missed and deeply missed by her husband Michael; son Tom; daughter-in-law Penny; grandson Connor and granddaughter Catherine. Amie will be joyfully remembered. She was endeared to many, especially her neighbours Merv and Marilyn and their children Kathy and Craig who had a friend and grandmother in her. Also lovingly cherished were special niece Tracy and nephews Gary and Gordon. She was predeceased by her son, Barry. Many thanks to all who have given their love and well wishes throughout the last four years. A very special thank you to the staff and management of Kildonan Personal Care Home for their support and care during Amies stay. As I walk the room there before me A shadow from another world Where no other can follow Carry me to my own To where I can cross over. A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, May 28 at 2:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street. Honorary pallbearers are Merv and Craig Calancia, Bruce Woodward, Doug McEwen, David Elrick and Connor Mazur. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Amies memory to the Sunshine Camp Fund. Goodbye Amie, well miss you and we love you, always and forever. CROPO FUNERAL CHAPEL 586-8044
