Feb. 15, 1929 – Apr. 13, 2017

On a sunny spring day, our beloved mom, grandma, grams and gamma Jean passed away following a brief illness and hospitalization.

Mom was born in Brandon, Manitoba to Gertrud Schmied and raised in the Oak Lake area with family.

Predeceased by her loving husband Bill of 66 years, her grandson Scott McIntosh, and half brother Thomas McKinnon.

Survived by daughters Charlene Wyenberg (Clint), Lori McIntosh and son Ian McIntosh; grandchildren, Gregory, Alexander (Amanda), Kaitlyn, George, Katarina, Carly, Laura, Evan and great grandson Jaxson.  Sisiters in-law Betty (Marven) and Roz, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mom and dad raised their family in St. Vital and retired out to Elm Creek, MB.  Mom worked at the Winnipeg Post Office for 21 years.  She was the 1st part time shop steward and eventually 1st vice president of the union.  She was a Girl Guide leader and an amazing sewer.

Once in Elm Creek her volunteerism took over.  She sewed over 10,000 items for CancerCare, made prayer shawls and lap quilts for veterans at Deer Lodge.  She collected money for Alzheimers, belonged on the church committee and put on fund raisers and teas and supplied the decorations for each occasion.  Mom always kept her mind active by doing crosswords and writing in a journal each night.  She also belonged to the seniors club and walking club.

Special thank you to the amazing doctors, nurses and support staff at Health Sciences Centre in SICU and surgical step down unit GA3.  They gave mom exceptional care right to her final moments.  Thank you to Dr. Woo and Boundary Trails for their care of mom.

Funeral service will be held on Monday, April 24, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at the St. Andrew’s United Church, Elm Creek with Rev. Harold Kenyon officiating.  Interment will take place in Elm Creek Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Ave, Wpg, MB, R3E 0V9.
