Our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and friend passed away peacefully in her sleep surrounded by family at the Simkin Centre on July 8th, 2019 at the age of 92.
She was born in Winnipeg to Louis and Rachel Mindell, the youngest of five loving children. She reminisced enthusiastically about her happy childhood with her supportive and loving parents and her siblings. Lenore was dedicated to her parents and her brother William (Min), sisters Marion (Monte) Edythe (Auntie Cookie), and Evelyn.
Mother lived her 92 years with enthusiasm, love, passion. By her own words she had a full life, wanted for nothing, her only regret was that our father passed much too young and early before they were able to enjoy the treasures of life, children, grandchildren and holidays together.
Lenore was Predeceased by her loving husband Irving and is survived by her sons Frank (Sue), and Ralph (Nancy), nine grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.
Funeral service was held at Congregation Shaarey Zedek and interment followed at Shaarey Zedek Cemetery.
The family is extremely grateful and thankful for the staff and residents of Weinberg 2 and everyone at the Simkin Centre for their excellent care, immense compassion and expertise.
Pallbearers were Nephew Jim Saper, grandchildren Richard, Ilana, Joshua, Chapin, Shael and Drake Hechter.
Words are completely inadequate to express our indebtedness, sincere gratitude and appreciation for the entire staff of the Simkin Centre particularly the staff of Weinberg 2 for the unbelievable care, compassion and thoughtfulness in caring for mother.
If so wished, donations in mother’s memory may be made to the Simkin Centre, 1 Falconbridge Drive, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3Y 1V9 or a charity of your choice.
