Times were tough during World War II. Mom was a teenager who learned to make do with what they had. Although food, electricity and heat were scarce, there was an abundance of love. Her family became very close as they sat by candlelight, singing songs, telling stories and praying for loved ones in battle.

When Mom and Dad moved to Winnipeg in 1985, she continued her volunteerism in the church and the Transcona community. Mom loved nature! Many days and weekends were spent at the cottage in Wallace Lake. Walking in the bush, picking blueberries and endless hours of canoeing; these were some of her favourite activities. 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. She sends her love. Funeral Service will be held at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, 401 Kildare Avenue West. Service will be on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. with lunch afterwards.

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.
