MARION GRACE JAMIESON  (published on January 09, 2009)

MARION GRACE JAMIESON (HOSSACK) Peacefully at the Grace Hospital in the early hours of January 6, 2009, Marion Grace Jamieson passed away. She was predeceased by her husband, Samuel (Sam) Jamieson; her parents, Alex and Marion Hossack; brothers, Alex (Marion), Doug and Jack; sisters, Julia, Joanne (Sam) Thompson and Margaret (Cliff) Rice-Jones and sisters-in-law, Jean Montgomery and Margaret (Duke) Hannah. She is survived by her daughter Janet (William) Kushneryk; grandchildren, Susan, Colin (Janna) and Timothy; sisters-in-law, Patricia and Shirley, as well as many nieces, nephews and their families and special friends, Suzanne Duncan and Diane Penner. Grace, as she preferred to be known, was born in Winnipeg on November 22, 1913 at Grace General Hospital. She grew up on Agnes Street in the west end of Winnipeg, attending John M. King School and Daniel McIntyre Collegiate. She met and married Sam Jamieson on July 8, 1939. Sam and Grace moved to Halifax where daughter Janet was born. Sam died in 1948 and Grace returned to Winnipeg where she spent the rest of her life. Grace was employed for many years with Ogilvie Flour Mills where she made many long-time friends. Later she worked for the Manitoba Department of Industry and Commerce and the Manitoba Development Fund. She retired in 1978. During this time she was quite involved in her church as a Sunday School teacher and Leader of the C.G.I.T. program. At this point she began her second career as a volunteer, primarily with the Manitoba Crafts Guild on Kennedy Street participating in many aspects of the organization, latterly as Chairman of the building committee, overseeing the addition to the building. Most recently Grace enjoyed the company of her friends and was a regular member of the Ladies' bridge group at Park West on Portage Avenue, where she resided for 36 years. Grace's greatest pride and joy was her three grandchildren who brought her much happiness and joy. Grace had a full life, with many, many friends and wonderful experiences. Through all of her life, Grace took an active interest in the society around her and contributed many hours to building her community. She enjoyed Winnipeg's vibrant arts community and regularly attended the ballet and pops concerts. Grace was a remarkably kind and principled woman who will be missed by her family and many friends. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (C.N.I.B.), 1080 Portage Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3G 3M3 or to a charity of one's choice. Memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 10, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Avenue. Chapel Lawn 885-9715
