Jessie Mary Turner
Jun 14, 1951 - Feb 15, 2024
Jessie Turner Obituary Jessie Turner was born on June 14, 1951, in The Pas, Manitoba, to Leona (nee Bittern) and Harry Parenteau. She was a strong woman whose life journey was a testament to resilience, love, and dedication to her family, community, and friends. Her traditional name was Circling Thunderbird and Jessie was a proud member of Pimicikamak Cree Nation. Growing up in Thicket Portage, Manitoba, she cherished moments at the fish camp on Paint Lake and the trapline at Mile 6. From a young age, her responsibilities included looking after the camp, her siblings and cooking for the family – a role she embraced with grace and strength. During a challenging time when her mother, Leona, went to the Ninette Sanatorium for TB treatment for over two years, Jessie became the anchor that kept her siblings connected. Over the years her caring and protective nature continued to watch over Nora, Gilbert, Esabell, Dannyboy, Doreen, Gail and Ricky. Jessie was known for her natural beauty. In 1967, Jessie was chosen as the Manitoba Centennial Year Princess in Thicket Portage. Photographs were taken of her , and portraits were drawn of her in her regalia. When she was 17 years old, Jessie met the love of her life, Arthur Turner, in Cranberry Portage where she attended high school. They settled in Cormorant, married, and started a family. Jessie’s dedication to her children was strong, instilling in them to be proud of their Indigenous heritage and intolerant of hate and racism. She advocated for them when mistreated and they knew they were safe when they with their mom. She carried on that advocacy to her grandchildren with passion and ferocity. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were most important in her life. She loved them with all her heart. She passed down traditional and cultural teachings to them as she knew they were gifted. Jessie had an entrepreneurial spirit as the family hairdresser specializing in the Toni perm and the mushroom haircuts, practicing on family and friends. She opened a daycare in Cormorant when she saw the need for childcare and this provided a service for the community and employment for four families. The daycare kids were raised on dancing to Mikisew Morning music, and Edge of Night was quiet time with the kids sitting around the TV. Jessie also supported her husband while he worked with the Turner Logging family business that would take him away from home weeks at a time. Jessie loved her community and people. While she raised her children, she served as a Cormorant school committee member and an elected Cormorant Community Councilor. She played a crucial role in securing the community with running water. Education was important to her. She took religious studies with Granny Clark in Cormorant, which opened her eyes to respect all religions. Jessie went back to school to get her GED at 35 years old in Cormorant. She continued with a Nutrition Health Advisor certificate from Frontier School Division. In 1992, she moved her family to Winnipeg and registered at University of Manitoba for a Bachelor of Arts degree as a mature student. She graduated in 1997. She loved pursuing her education and learning. After her degree, she started work at the Aboriginal Centre in Winnipeg at the Manitoba Association for Native Languages as the Executive Director, a Community Wellness Worker for Abinotci Mino-Ayawin, and then found her dream job as a Social Support Counselor at the Aboriginal Health & Wellness for over 20 years. She had a huge impact on the constituents she served as well as her colleagues, past and present. She was the most collaborative, responsive, and helpful person. She was consistent in the delivery of services. Whenever there was an alternative viewpoint in a particular situation, she would arrive at a solution. She treated her constituents with love and respect, no judgement, advocated for them to be treated fairly and equal. She loved her job, constituents, and her coworkers. Jessie also supported her coworkers as a union representative for approximately 15 years, advocating for her coworkers’ rights and equality for all employees. In her personal life, Jessie embraced Indigenous culture and ceremonies and shared those teachings with her family. She joined a drum group with coworkers and the power of culture revitalization. Outside of work, Jessie enjoyed going to bingo, slots, playing cards, travelling with her sisters, and travelling to Thicket Portage, Cormorant and Thompson to see family. She loved to visit her nieces and nephews. She followed her great grandson Landyn in hockey and she was his biggest hockey fan. She loved all her grandchildren and great grandchildren, making sure they were well taken care of and dressed in nice clothes. Jessie passed away in Winnipeg on February 15, 2024, at home surrounded by family at the age of 72 years old. She is survived by her husband Arthur Turner, children Jeanette (Darryl), Colin, Conrad (Andrea); grandchildren Rachel (Logan), Cadence, Dredan, Hailey; great grandchildren Landyn, Ares, Jackson, Tyson, and Kahlani; sisters Nora, Esabell, Doreen, and Gail; brothers Dannyboy (Sheila) and Ricky (Lena); numerous nieces and nephews, and many family and friends.

Jessie Turner left a legacy of care, compassion, and love. As we remember her, let our hearts be filled with gratitude for the love, strength, and resilience she brought to her family and community. Her spirit will continue to inspire, comfort, and guide us until the day we are reunited. She will be dearly missed, but her impact will live on in our hearts forever. This is not a goodbye.

Aug 13, 1963 - Jan 28, 2024
August 13th,1963 ~ January 28th, 2024 After a week of suffering from a massive stroke, Rick has passed away. We are all so relieved that he is on the Stairway to Heaven. His life was a story of music, more music, love of family and a tight group of friends. He also spent a lot of time alone tinkering with electronics while listening to music. Rick was the youngest of four brothers; Ron, Jimmy (deceased) and Claude (Lisa). Born to Janette and Emile (deceased). He grew up in Ste. Anne, Manitoba where he spent the majority of his life. Eventually moving to Beausejour, Manitoba to be close to his immediate family. Rick helped raise two step children Aaron and Stephanie through till adulthood. Unselfishly giving of his time, wisdom and support. They were loved. His love for family shone brightest by his deep devotion to his nieces, Jasmine (Jeremy) and Chelsea. They were a piece of his heart and soul. He loved, guided and protected them throughout their life up until his passing. Jeremy was unwavering in helping Rick with anything and everything, always there for him in times of need. This created a love and respect for each other that they savoured. Also, he found a new special love in his great nephew Mack (10 months) whom always made him shine warmly from the inside out. His partner Michele (Mikey) of four years was his true love. For Rick life began when he met her. A sweet, loving and caring person with a beautiful family the same. Their kindness and support did not go unnoticed. Throughout his life he forged a special relationship with his cousin Mona. Born out of a love of music and matters of the heart. They were unbreakable. As was his relationship with his brothers. All who were apprentice plumbers, one by one, working under their dad on calls. This included Jimmy whose passing formed an unpenetrable band of brotherhood. Lisa was the sister he never had. The drives, going to the legion and most of all trips to the laundromat….where “the laundry talks” were born. Rick was also the brother Lisa never had. She will cherish that time with him forever. His close knit group of friends were his mainstay throughout his life. Forming a band, playing and listening to music endlessly. His Les Paul guitar will be resting now, as will Rick. Come and join us in celebrating Rick’s life on Saturday, February 10th from 1pm to 4pm at the Beausejour Room, 320 Veterans Lane, beside the Sun Gro complex, Beausejour, Manitoba. Come and go or stay as you please. Heartfelt gratitude to the Specialist, Doctors, Nurses and Nurses Aids at HSC, GH 7 for their dedicated care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke foundation would be Rick’s wish.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of my beloved wife, Linda on our 55 anniversary on February 15, 2024 at St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 75. Linda was predeceased by her mother and father, Erwin and Elsa Kaehler, sister Barbara Stark. Linda will be forever remembered by her husband Lorne, son Michael (Leanne), son Trevor, daughter Amanda (Billy), brother Norbert (Susan), sister Joyce (Paul) and 6 grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Linda was born in Germany and they came to Canada in 1952. We met at a United Church young peoples dance in 1965 and got married in 1969. Linda was a stay at home mom while she raised our three children after which she worked at Core Mark and Stats Canada. Her religion was most important to her but also she enjoyed knitting and sewing and of course cooking big meals for the family and spending time with the grandchildren. In her later years she had been confined to a wheelchair which had slowed her down. But she looked forward to Sunday dinner with the family and a friendly game of crazy eights after dinner. There will be no service by request and a private cremation has taken place. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at St. Boniface Hospital who valiantly tried to overcome her final challenges that last day.

He was a very hard-working man who worked many different jobs to provide for his family mostly working as a cement finisher. In the early years he would pack up the family on Sundays to go picnicking at various beach locations to enjoy the day with family, friends, and good food. There were also memorable vacations to Italy and British Columbia to celebrate special occasions. His biggest passions included wine making and gardening. With the help of sons and friends, he built a cottage at Winnipeg Beach, where he grew a second vegetable garden. He spent many weekends over the years at the cottage sharing good times with family and many friends. Pop and mom loved their many winter vacations to Mexico and other warm destinations. After retirement, he continued to garden, began daily mall walks and chauffeuring his grandchildren to school and activities. He loved to sing his opera songs, watch the news (both local and from Italy), teach his grandkids words in Italian and eat Nonna’s amazing cooking! We would like to thank the hard-working staff at Golden Links Lodge for their care during these difficult times.
