CLARICE JOYCE REBILLARD (published on December 19, 2009)

CLARICE JOYCE REBILLARD (nee JACOBSON) It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Clarice, our beloved mother, Amma and Lang Amma at Johnson Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, December 16, 2009 with family at her side. Clarice was born on June 4, 1935 on the family homestead in Framnes, MB. She always talked about being kept warm in a shoe box on the oven door of their small woodstove as a baby. During her younger years her passions were her employment, Saturday night dances and especially baseball. During this time she met the love of her life Gerry and moved away from home to start a family. In 1975 they bought G C Grocery in Gimli, MB which they later sold. Throughout the following years Clarice worked at Markusson's and Tip Top Foods in Gimli, MB until retiring. During her retirement she spent her time caring for any and every living creature that crossed her path - whether it was a bird to a deer - she made sure it was taken care of. Clarice was the definition of what an Amma should be - she was the one that you could always go to for everything - be it the greatest baking/cooking or just someone to talk too. Her greatest joy in life was her family. As the matriarch, she dedicated her life to the commitment of each and everyone. She never forgot a birthday, anniversary or special occasion; she could even tell you how the weather was on that day. She lived to ensure that the needs of her family were always put first. Clarice will be remembered by her three children, Randy (Jona), Brenda (Ian) and Lori; her grandchildren, Jennifer (Jamie), Dustin, Ryan, Brandon, Madison, Mercedes, Mackenzie and her great-grandchild Jakob. We find comfort in knowing that Clarice will be greeted by her late husband Gerry; her parents, Clarence and Seena; her brothers, Marino and Lorne; and five of her children. Sid will be dearly missed by all family and friends. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, December 22 at 11:00 a.m. in the Gilbart Funeral Chapel, Gimli with a viewing a half hour prior to service. Interment will follow in the Haga Cemetery in Arborg. Amma we miss you and will forever and always love you. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Haga Cemetery, Box 355, Arborg, MB R0C 0A0. Gilbart Funeral Home, Gimli in care of arrangements.
