Winnipeg, MB

Remembered With Love On February 16, 2024, Our Mama, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother, Regina P. Jarabelo peacefully passed at home with her loving family by her side at the age of 90. Since the beginning of her battle with cancer until her last breath, she was never alone. She will be lovingly remembered by her son Rainier (Annalisa), and daughter Liza (Avelino), grandchildren Kristine (Alex), Karlo, Jamie (Ryan), Regine (Caolán), Christian (Steph), Kim, Luis, Amanda, and Ruth. Regina also had two great-grandchildren, Magnus and Calista. A week following her passing, her beloved husband of 66 years, Carlos passed away to join her in heaven. Predeceased by her daughter Grace (Rolando), her parents Eugenio and Maria Ponio, and siblings; Maxima, Ingo, Jose, Apolinario, Feliciano, Marcelino, Marciana, Consuelo. Regina was born in Guagua, Pampanga, Philippines. She grew up in a large family with loving parents and she is the youngest of nine siblings. Nene, to some people, moved to Manila for school to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in pharmacy at the University of Santo Tomas. After University, she worked as a Pharmacist at the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) for over 30 years. While in Manila, she met her neighbour Carlos. He pursued her for months. He was chivalrous, charming, respectful, and generous. They experienced life together as a young couple in a big city and eventually got married on December 21, 1957. They happily raised three wonderful children, Grace (????), Rainier, and Liza. Regina and Carlos lived and were immigrants in the United States, but decided to come back to the Philippines to help raise their grandchildren. She retired in the 90s as a Pharmacist and rather than relaxing and enjoying retirement, she opened a business to keep her active, occupy her time and financially support her family. Prior to moving to Canada, they were looked after by their son, Rainier while spending time with their three grandchildren in the Philippines. In 2013, they immigrated to Canada. While in Canada, they split their time between their daughter Grace, who lived in Vancouver, British Columbia and Liza, who lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They enjoyed spending time with their grandchildren who spoiled them with their favourite foods, taking them on trips and sightseeing. The last ten years, she lived comfortably. She was full of life and had a positive energy within her. She met and got to know her great-grandchildren. She was showered with so much love and care from her family. She was the matriarch of our family. Regina lived a life of generosity, selflessness, and service to her family, siblings, nieces and nephews. She was kind-hearted, hard working and prioritized other people before her own needs. This is her legacy, and this is how she will be lovingly remembered. Memorial Service and Celebration of Life will take place at 10:00 am on March 2, 2024 at Thomson "In the Park" Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Blvd. Internment will take place at Chapel Lawn Cemetery, 4000 Portage Ave. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff of the Winnipeg Regional Health Palliative program, Home and Health services, and Cancer Care Manitoba for their care, kindness and compassion during her Cancer journey. Thank you to our palliative coordinators, Sandi and Cory and nurses, and HCA for helping us fulfill Regina’s wish to stay home.

Lawrence Aloysius Frederick Van Caeseele

Winnipeg, MB

LAWRENCE ALOYSIUS FREDERICK VAN CAESEELE February 28, 1939 - February 22, 2024 Surrounded by loving family, Lawrence Van Caeseele, husband, father, son, and grandfather, passed peacefully on February 22, a few days before his 85th birthday. A kind man of immeasurable patience, integrity and depth, he will be dearly missed. He leaves his loving wife Corliss of 57 years, children Paul and Rachel (Todd), and grandchildren Luke, Mark and Eric, and Violet and Jasper. He also leaves two sisters, Mildred (Jim) and Marge (Donald), many nieces and nephews, in-laws, and friends to mourn his passing. Lawrence was born to Henry and Irma (Degryse) in Langenburg, Saskatchewan on the family farm. He was the ninth of ten children, four sisters and six brothers in all. Stories about his youth were full of mischief, laughter, hard work and love of family. He graduated high school as valedictorian, and was a member of the air cadets. He entered the RCAF in 1957, and was stationed in Chattham, New Brunswick, where he completed flight training on the F-106 Sabre fighter jet. After an honourable discharge, he came to Winnipeg, where he met Corliss at a dance for student nurses. They later married in 1966, after agreeing to do so only on the second date. First a technician at Cadham Provincial Laboratory, he then began his studies at the University of Manitoba in microbiology. He completed his PhD in 1970, becoming an expert in electron microscopy and scientific photography. He became a Professor in the Department of Botany, teaching thousands of students genetics, microbiology and advanced microscopy until he retired in 2001. Many of his students remember his warmth, and gift for teaching complex concepts with clarity and simplicity. His career took him on sabbaticals abroad to Dublin, Heidelberg and Tubingen, where he made fast friends with colleagues and graduate students. Neighbours quickly cleaved to him because of his natural deftness at boule, and easy enjoyment of wine. He also taught university biology to Canadian NATO troops stationed in Germany where his good humour and fairness won respect from up and down the chain of command. A lifelong pilot, Lawrence owned a Piper Clipper, and was a regular visitor to the prairie skies. He was a swimmer, runner, curler, skier, golfer and hockey player, making lifelong friends wherever he set his club or stick. He was astonishingly capable of almost any craft - carpentry, plumbing, wiring, mechanics and knitting. He enjoyed poetry and read avidly. He liked to read humorous classics out loud to his children, but with limited success, as he would laugh so hard he could not go on. In possession of a prodigious memory covering a vast array of subjects, he was the man you wanted on your Trivial Pursuit team. Lawrence and Corliss travelled frequently to visit family and to make and maintain friendships, keeping in regular virtual contact when circumstances changed. He canvassed annually for charities, and built houses for the poor in Mexico. He coached his son’s hockey team, and was a volunteer judge for school and city science fairs. His faith was a source of strength, and he was a devoted member of his church. He gave generously, and was a spirited volunteer, ever ready with both his hands and his heart. Special thanks to Dr. James Johnston, and also to the staff of the Riverview Palliative Care unit, who provided excellent and compassionate care in his final days. The service will take place on March 7, 2024 at 11 am at St. Ignatius Church, 255 Stafford Street, Winnipeg. Fr. Frank Obrigewitsch will preside. All who knew Lawrence are warmly welcomed to attend.

She loved to bake. Many people will remember her doughnuts rising outside on hot summer days, Apfelkuchen and Schwartzwalder Kirchtorte. She sewed, knitted and enjoyed crafts; especially those with glitter. Music was very important to Mom. She sang in church choirs for many years. Mom will be sadly missed, but she is now in peace.

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved father, husband, son, brother and grandson, Rui (Roy) Fernandes Pimentel, at the age of 46 on Tuesday, February 20, 2024. Roy leaves behind his loving wife of 27 years, Keri and their 3 children, Aidan, Nyla and Marko. He also leaves to mourn his parents John and Tina Pimentel, his brother Randy Pimentel and his daughters, Layla, Madison and Cali; his grandmother, Maria Pimentel; his sisters-in law, Lori (Shane) and Tracy along with many wonderful nieces, nephews, aunties, uncles, cousins and friends, including his beloved dogs Buddy and Ace. Roy is predeceased by his grandfather, Joao Pimentel; his grandparents Filomena Jamie Figueiredo and his father-in-law Paul Romanoff. Roy grew up in the Garden Grove area of Winnipeg and attended Garden Grove Elementary, Stanley Knowles Middle School and Sisler High School. Roy had a competitive nature and loved to play sports. He started playing hockey at a young age and continued in high school and played for North Winnipeg Satellites. Roy enjoyed the summer, going to Winnipeg Beach to see family at the cabin and water skiing on the lake. Later, Roy took up golf and would play many courses in Winnipeg and surrounding areas. Roy met Keri in 1996 while working at McDonalds at the McPhillips Street Station and shortly thereafter began dating and became inseparable. They loved to travel together to places like Las Vegas, Mexico and spent a month in the Azores, Portugal with Roy's family. Following their adventures, life had begun. They purchased their first home and were married in 2003. Soon after they welcomed their first child, Aidan, followed by Nyla and Marko, quickly becoming a family of 5. Roy's greatest joy was being a dad and he would do anything for his kids. He was always involved with their sporting activities, whether it was football, soccer or hockey. He would volunteer at his kid's school and field trips as well as coach both football and hockey when given the opportunity. He loved watching the boys play hockey and could always find him standing by the glass cheering them on. He most recently was taking Nyla to practice her driving skills. Despite the many challenges Roy faced with his health, he always gave his all for his family and he will forever be missed. We would like to extend a special thank you for the outpouring of love and support from all our friends, family, hockey families and the Portuguese community during this very difficult time. Mass and memorial service will be held on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, at 12 noon at the Immaculate Conception Church, 181 Austin Street N with reception to follow. Que Deus te proteja para sempre.
