Florence Edith Irene Pritchard

With sadden, empty hearts we announce the peaceful passing of our Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Irene Pritchard May 3, 2023.

She grew up in Swan River Mb, the 2nd child of Jim & Eileen Leggatt. Mom faced the challenges that life brought her way head on, with everything she had to overcome them and succeed.

In her early years she loved to figure skate and sew. Her career in life was to raise her daughter (Barbara) and she worked in accounting for Matt Tkachyk & Sons and Cargill Grain. Later in life she enjoyed spending as much time as she could with her two granddaughters, (Lacey and Terri) of whom she was extremely proud of and always present for their accomplishments in life. Grandma was always there with open arms and helping hands.

As her granddaughters grew, she found time to develop her interests in photography and writing, remodeling and decorating houses. Her quiet times were spent reading, puzzling, making crafts with flowers and painting pictures.

Anytime spent with her great grandchildren (Averie, Chelsea and Quin) was a gift from heaven. Her only wish, was to have been able to spend more time with them.

We cannot express how thankful we are that we had you in our lives. We miss you so much already.

Barb (Doug) Martin, Lacey (Brad) Griffin, Theresa Billan, Averie Billan, Chelsea Griffin and Quintin Griffin.

A private family service will take place at a later date.
