THERESE EVERTON (published on March 23, 2009)

THERESE EVERTON (nee Blais) Passing quickly in the night Thérèse Alma Léontine Everton has rejoined her husband Bert Everton; her brothers: Jean Blais and Félix Blais and her sisters: Lillianne Roy and Marguerite McMillan who have gone before her. She will be missed by her family; daughters Helene Sward (Dave), Irene Mellick (Wayne), son Brian (Monique), and her sister Hélène Blais. As a cookie-baking grandma to Vincent, Russell, Dale, Paul, Jeff, Eric, and her seven great-grandchildren she will not be forgotten. Thérèse will also be remembered by her many nieces and nephews. Mom was born March 2, 1921 to Eusèbe and Eléontine Blais in the Town of Transcona. She lived in Transcona the majority of her life with the exceptions of the time she spent boarding at St. Joseph's Academy as a child and Charlottetown, PEI as a newly-wed bride with Bert. Mom passed away being comforted by her colleagues at St. Boniface Hospital. Always a graduate of nursing at St. Boniface Mom would never fail to step forward when people were in need of care. As a full time mother to the three of us she learned to become a skilled seamstress. Many a bride walked down the wedding aisle with a gown stitched and hand beaded from our home on Yale Avenue in Transcona. Forever making birthday cakes or home-made marshmallows and volunteering for the East End Community Club, the Catholic Women's League, or the parish council at Blessed Sacrament Church mom was always busy. After losing her Bert she found happiness with many friends, especially the gals including Venice, Nina and Nora, when travelling to the likes of Cuba, Hawaii, Matlock and the occasional casino. After moving to Saint Michaels Villa she hosted many afternoon card games with the ladies. To the end, in her last days living at Taché Personal Care Home she still could find ways to be funny and quick even with her limited words. Still proud to be a nurse, her diploma hung above her bed. We would ask you to celebrate the memory of Thérèse by stepping forward to do a little extra for someone today. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to a charity of your choice. Prayers will be said at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24 at the Desjardins Funeral Chapel, 357 DesMeurons Street. Funeral mass will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 25 at Blessed Sacrament Roman Catholic Church, 710 Roanoke Street. Interment to follow at Green Acres Memorial Gardens. Family and friends are invited to sign the Book of Condolences at: DESJARDINS 233-4949 1-888-233-4949
