MARY JENNIE JAQUET
It is with profound sadness that the family of Mary Jaquet announces the passing of their beloved mother on March 13, 2021, at the age of 92.
Mary will be lovingly missed and remembered by her four children, Randy (Elsie), Darlene (Doug), Suzanne (Rob), and Blair (Diana). Also cherishing her memory are her eight grandchildren, Jason (Julie), Chantel (Sean), Taeyo (Andrew), Seylene (Keaffor), Lorea, Trevor (Ashley), Jeremy (Brittany) and Justin and her 13 great grandchildren (Colby, Brady, Dylan, Blake, Ella, Brice, Rowan, Caius, Hayden, Faith, Justus, Aubrielle and Finn).
Mary was predeceased by her baby daughter Cora Lee (1953) and her loving husband of 65 years, Alexis (2014).
Mary was born on March 6, 1929 on a small farm located in Alvena, Saskatchewan. At a young age her family relocated to Winnipeg. She graduated from Daniel McIntyre Colligate and after worked for the T. Eaton Company both as a model and as a secretary in the Executive Office.
In 1948 Mary met Alexis and they were married on August 20, 1949. They lived happily in St. Vital were they raised their four children. Mary was a loving and devoted mother first and foremost. Her family was her whole world, and she was always there for all of us. Mom was caring, kind, compassionate and made those around her always feel loved. She was a fantastic cook and baker as she made everything from the heart and every Christmas her family looked forward to her shortbread, thimble cookies and almond crescents. Mom could often be found at the kitchen table with her dictionary enjoying her crossword puzzles. Mom was a beautiful woman, exquisitely dressed, loved fashion and loved to shop at her favourite mall, St. Vital Centre. While Mom and Dad had a fantastic time travelling to Hawaii and Las Vegas ultimately their home was their castle. They loved sitting together in their backyard relaxing and admiring their flowers and fishpond.
After almost 60 years in their beloved home, Mom and Dad moved to Dakota House in 2012. After Dad passed, Mom remained there until 2019 after which she moved into the St. Norbert Personal Care Home. Here, she survived a heroic battle with COVID-19, but this left her body tired, and she could no longer hold on. A special thank you to the nurses and staff at St. Norbert PCH for all the gentle care and kindness they provided when we were unable to be with her due to COVID-19 restrictions.
In accordance with Mary’s wishes cremation has taken place and there will be no formal service.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to CancerCare Manitoba.
Mom, we have wonderful lasting memories of you. I love you with all my heart, forever and ever, amen. I miss you Mom.
