GINETTE MARIE DEVIGNE (published on March 07, 2009)



GINETTE MARIE DEVIGNE (nee BILODEAU) August 2, 1953 March 4, 2009 On March 4, 2009, at the Riverview Health Centre a battle that started 12 years ago came to a peaceful end. Surrounded by her family, Ginette went on to be with her beloved Virgin Mary and God. Ginette will always be lovingly remembered by her husband Richard and their four sons, Robert (Veronique), Marc, Denis, and Paul. Ginette also leaves to cherish her memory, father and mother Donat and Marie Bilodeau, brothers Marcel (Carol), Gilles, and sister Michelle (George), and niece Larissa and nephews Andre and Daniel. Mother and father- in-law Louise and Gerry Devigne, brother-in-law Raymond and sister-in-law Lise Robitaille (Larry), as well as many very close friends, Paul and Lynette Choiselat, Jim and Piper Werbowsky, John and Darcia Kozelco, Cecile Roberts, Marie-Claire, just to name a few. Ginette and Richard were married on December 28, 1974 and set out creating and living a life that will leave her husband and four sons many wonderful memories to cherish in her absence. With the exception of their first year of marriage spent in Vancouver, Ginette always resided in Winnipeg, wanting to be close to family and friends. But that did not stop her from seeing the world. With Richard at her side and often times her sons as well, they travelled to many countries and filled her too short time on earth with a life time of adventures and memories. Much of Ginette's working career was spent at the Manitoba Clinic as a Medical Lab Technologist where she made several life long friends. Making friends came very easy to Ginette, her loving, caring, generous, and compassionate nature made her truly unique. Never having a bad word to say about anyone, Ginette only saw the good in everyone she met. Ginette's strong faith in God was an inspiration to anyone who knew her. Ginette's unwavering devotion to the Virgin Mary will live on with her husband and sons. Ginette's talents were many, but perhaps the one that brought her the most joy was the one developed in her later years, sculpting angels. Ginette could spend countless hours working on her masterpieces which we now have to treasure. Ginette's legacy will live on in her four sons whom she loved dearly and took such pride in all their endeavors and accomplishments. We Love You and Miss You Sweetheart, Mom, and not a day will go by without you being a part of it. We would like to thank Dr. Ted St. Goddard and the wonderful caregivers at the Riverview Health Centre 3E. Your compassion and attention helped make the last nine weeks as comfortable as could ever be expected, Thank you.
