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.

Remembered With Love On Wednesday February 14, 2024, Giuseppe Mangiacotti (Pop), beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend died at the age of 91. He leaves behind his wife of 66 years Rafaella Mangiacotti, his children Don Mangiacotti (Angie), Peter Mangiacotti, Robert Mangiacotti (Shelley), Anna Conway (Jeff) and grandchildren Melissa Mangiacotti, Rachel Mangiacotti, Stefan Conway, Nicolas Conway, Daniel Conway, and Francesca Mangiacotti. Giuseppe immigrated from Italy in 1957 and shortly after Rafaella joined him to raise a family. 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. Funeral service and mass will be held on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, at Holy Rosary Church, 510 River Ave., Winnipeg with viewing starting at 10:00 am, mass at 11:00 am and reception to follow. Donations in his memory may be made to Parkinson’s Canada or a charity of your choice. https://www.parkinson.ca/

Her selfless contributions did not go unnoticed, as she was honored by Manitobans in 2002 for her significant impact on the well-being of her community. Marlene was a proud member of the Daughters of the Nile and the Klassie Klown unit, and she cherished her involvement in Khartum Shrine events and her travels to the MidWest Shrine with her children. She was a devoted supporter of her grandchildren's sporting events, especially hockey, and her presence at these events brought joy and encouragement to her family. The family would like to express their gratitude to the paramedics, nurses, and doctors at Seven Oaks and Grace Hospital for their exceptional care, kindness, and compassion during Marlene's illness. In honor of Marlene's memory, the family requests that donations be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society. Marlene's love for animals was evident, and supporting this cause would be a fitting tribute to her compassionate spirit. A private graveside service will be held to honor Marlene's life, with a celebration of life to follow at a later date.
