John Frederick Curwain

June 25, 1951 - June 13, 2022



With great sadness, our family announces the sudden passing of John Curwain on Monday, June 13, 2022, at Grace Hospital, beloved husband of Catharine for almost 49 years. Remaining to forever cherish John’s memory is his wife; his children Cheryl Schellenberg (Paul, granddaughter Sabrina) of Winkler, Andrew (Kristen, grandchildren Aria, Cohen, Elle) of Winnipeg, and Sean (Allesheu, granddaughter Winter) of Calgary; his brother Harold (Paula) of Plainfield, Ontario; and extended family members.

John was born June 25, 1951, in Belleville Ontario to parents Harold and Helen Curwain. John attended Queen’s University where he met his wife, Catharine. John worked for Canada Post for over 34 years, starting in university, working in various towns across Ontario and Manitoba before settling in Winnipeg in 1989. Once retired, John and Catharine enjoyed traveling to many different provinces with their travel trailer, including going to Newfoundland and the Rocky Mountains. They also went on many winter vacations to Caribbean destinations, and cruises to Alaska and the Mediterranean. John’s pride and joy in retirement was enjoying his grandchildren, with visits to the Zoo, watching their sports, and babysitting.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation may be made in John’s memory to Diabetes Canada or the Grace Hospital Foundation.

A private family funeral service will be held at Wojcik’s Funeral Chapel and Crematorium.
