MARY AGNES PICARD (published on September 26, 2009)

MARY AGNES PICARD On September 23, 2009, our beloved mother, Mary Picard passed away after a lengthy illness. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Albert in 2006. She is survived by her children Paul (Sandy), Kathy (Adrian), Carol (Dave) David (Daunica), her grandchildren Erin, Courtenay, Brayden, Kelby, Lindsay, Riva, Alyssa, Kevin, Sean, Tiana, Justin, Jesse and her great-grandson Jordon. She is also survived by her sisters Hedy and Eva, brothers Gerald and Charlie, sisters-in-law Bernadette, Rita, Marie, Beatrice and Evelyn. She will also be remembered by many nieces and nephews who were very dear to her. Mom was born on July 14, 1929, in Lloydminster, Alberta, the eighth of ten children. She attended school in Lea Park and Marwayne, Alberta. Music was an early influence in her life and at the age of 14 she began playing with a band. Music continued to be an important part of her life and was a source of great enjoyment not only for herself, but for those around her as well. Mom moved to Winnipeg in 1946 and began working at Eaton's. She met our Dad, Albert and they were married in 1953. In 1962 Mom and Dad and our family moved to Lac du Bonnet where Mom continued to live for the next 47 years. Mom was always active in the community. She was very involved with the choir at the Catholic Church and was a long time Legion Ladies Auxiliary Member. She could always be counted on to provide entertainment at curling bonspiels and often played guitar for seniors in the personal care home. She had many friends who looked to her for advice and encouragement and she will be deeply missed by all who loved her. Mom's faith was very important and was a great source of comfort to her during the most difficult days of her illness. Funeral service will be held on Monday, September 28, 2009, at 11:00 a.m. in Notre Dame du Lac Roman Catholic Church with Father Owen Steeves officiating. Interment will follow in the Lac du Bonnet cemetery. Pallbearers will be her grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, if friends and family so desire, donations may be made in her memory to CancerCare Manitoba. The family wishes to extend heartfelt thanks to Dr. Daphne Schmidt and all of the exceptional staff at Beausejour Hospital for the loving care our mother received during her stay there.
