GRACE ELIZABETH FICK (published on March 07, 2009)

GRACE ELIZABETH FICK (nee FARMER) December 9, 1916 - March 5,2009 After a long and valiant struggle to maintain her independence Grace found peace in death March 5, 2009 at Lions Personal Care Centre where she had resided for the last two years of her life. She was predeceased by her husband of 65 years, Tom, on December 25, 2003 as well as her son Ross and daughter-in-law Myra. She is survived by her daughter Heatherann Morton (Mike), granddaughter Tanji Irwin (Michael) and great-grandchildren Dalton and Ireland, all of Winnipeg as well as granddaughter Shannon Therrien (Grant) and great-grandson Easton of Cochrane, Alberta. Also surviving her are grandson Gavin (Patti) and their children Brandon, Carson and Leah and grandson Colin (Sherrell) and children Jeffrey and Alyssa of Calgary, Alberta. Grace was born in Winnipeg and resided here all her life. She took pride in maintaining her home and volunteered in the canteen of Isaac Brock Community Club when her children were involved there. She sold Avon for several years and many of her customers became longstanding friends. She enjoyed her part-time work at Reitman's and probably more than the work itself, the people she worked with. When Tom's failing health necessitated his move to Riverview Health Centre Grace took up residence at Lions Place. She spent many hours there playing cards, going to bingo and attending the entertainment offered. We would like to express out heartfelt thanks to the staff of Lions Personal Care Centre for the care Grace received during her stay and for the thoughtfulness shown to family. Cremation has taken place and by request there will be no service. Inurnment will be held privately at a later date. Flowers are gratefully declined. If friends so desire donations in Grace's memory may be made to a charity of one's choice. Chapel Lawn 885 - 9715
