Obituary for Glenn Alan Taillieu


It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Glenn on January 24, 2024 at Seven Oaks General Hospital at the age of 66 years with his loving wife Andrea at his side.

Glenn was predeceased by his grandmother Ksenia and grandfather Ivan Chliboyko, grandmother Maria and grandfather Godfrey Taillieu, father Albert Taillieu, uncles Ray and Terry Chliboyko, aunt Carole McDonald and cousins Paul and John Chliboyko.

Glenn leaves to mourn his wife Andrea and children Jamie, Samantha, Jessica, Erica and numerous grandchildren, his mother Anne Taillieu, sister Debra (Les) Carrothers, niece Tetyana (Allan) Rapisarda and family, cousins Jim (Carla) Chliboyko, Greg (Kathy) Chliboyko and Michele (Bob) Pawliw and their families and aunts Mary Ellen Chliboyko and Heather Chliboyko.

He also leaves to mourn many loving family members from the Coutu family who were also by Glenn’s side throughout his illness and hospital stay. Daughter Erica, mother-in-law Lorraine and sisters-in-law, Norine, Karen, Tracy and their families, made sure Glenn was never alone and for that we are truly grateful.

Glenn was born in St. Boniface and lived there all of his life. As a result his connections and friendships are deeply rooted in the St. Boniface community which he loved.

Glenn received his grade 12 education at Nelson McIntyre Collegiate and later attended Herzing College where he received a diploma in computer science. Upon graduation, Glenn joined Manitoba Health and worked there for thirty-five years in the IT department. In this thirty-five years he made many friends whom he remembered and spoke of fondly.

Glenn had many passions but none compared to his love of hockey. Glenn played hockey as a youth and later with recreational teams in his adult years. Glenn’s favourite team was the Winnipeg Jets. He watched each and every game, went to their home games whenever he could and proudly wore his Jets Jersey wherever he went. We could not talk while a game was on because Glenn took his “couch coach” role very seriously. We loved him for that.

Glenn loved his yard and spent many hours tending to the flower beds and ensuring his grass was cut just so. He loved animals and especially his dog Shadow who he adopted from the Humane Society. When Shadow passed Glenn and Andrea adopted Bear. Bear was Glenn’s constant companion while he was home and during Glenn’s hospital stay Bear and Glenn were able to connect on FaceTime.

The family would like to thank the staff of Seven Oaks General Hospital for their kind and compassionate care for Glenn throughout his stay in the hospital.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Kidney Foundation of Canada, Manitoba Branch or the Winnipeg Humane Society.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Glenn’s life will be held on Friday, February 2, 2024 at 2:00 p.m. in the Coutu Funeral Chapel, 680 Archibald Street.
