Agnes Sylvia Giasson

Sadly, the children of Agnes Giasson announce that Mom passed away peacefully at Actionmarguerite St. Boniface on Saturday, April 29th, 2023, in her sleep.

Mom was born in St. Boniface on March 29th, 1923. St. Boniface was special to her as she was raised, educated, married, and raised her family all within the boundaries of St. Boniface.

She was predeceased by her husband Leo in 1983. Also predeceasing her were her parents Anna Bédard and Louis Tétreault, along with her sisters Ritha & Gertrude and her brother Louis (Tommy) and his wife Lucette. Also, her daughter in law Shirley.

Mom is survived by all her children, Robert (Monica), Paul (Janice), Jacqueline (Ed), Claude (Jeanne) and Gilles (Karen). At the time of her death, she had eleven grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren.

Once her children were living away from home, she found work in a doctors office and worked until her retirement.

Mom was independent and active till her ninety-fourth year where it was determined that she had to live in a care home. She was enjoying her initial stay where she could walk around, visit with other residents, made close friendship with many and then Covid appears changing all of our ways. Restrictions were such that it was difficult to even go and visit for some time. The family had planned a big surprise 100th birthday party for her and we were advised that all had to be cancelled as Mom’s floor was placed in a lockdown situation due to another health crisis. What a disappointment. Only two persons could attend her special day and exactly one month later she passed away peacefully.

The children recognize that Mom was surrounded by an exemptional staff at Actionmarguerite St. Boniface, section 3DE, floor three. We thank them all for their hard work, friendship, and assistance. We were so lucky to have this group taking care of her needs.

Her funeral will be on Monday, May 8, 2023, at 10:00 AM at E.J. Coutu & Co., at 680 Archibald Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
