Our dear mother passed away on September 19, 2020. She was predeceased by our beloved father, Max, and beloved sister Terri (Jerry).
She is survived by her children Frank (Mercedes), Marilyn (Norman) and Laurie (Lesley), 12 grandchildren, Jason (Ada), Carlie (Junior), Aviva (Greg), Amy, Daniel, Jennifer (Wojtek), Maxa (Dov), Amanda (Rob), Adam (Jenna), Rachel, Mikaela and Matthew, and 11 great grandchildren, Leeza, Sadie, Chloe, Sam, Isaac, Ben, Teddy, Julia, Harvey, Violet and Myles. Mom was born in 1926 in London, England, where she married our father, a Canadian soldier in the intelligence force, during the war. In 1946 she crossed the ocean with Frank to join Dad in Canada. Our parents planted their life together with very little. They persevered, worked hard, and provided their children with a loving, comfortable home full of joy and laughter, while also ensuring they were provided great life and educational opportunities. Together with Dad, Mom loved to entertain friends and family. She was an amazing cook and baker. Everyone loved spending time with her and she loved people from all walks of life. Her great energy, positive attitude and high standards made her a person that so many people wanted to hang around with, seek advice from, or simply enjoy some conversation with. Our Mom always made friends, family and acquaintances feel our home was always open, any time, any day. No matter what age she was at the time, she was always wise before her years. As a bubby, she was like a second mother, always having time for her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She put everyone else first. She will be missed by so many forever and ever; may her memory be a blessing. We had a private funeral on September 22, 2020. If friends desire, donations in mom’s memory may be made to The Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, Terri Sawyer fund (204-477-7520) or a charity of your choice.
