MABEL BALAKOWSKI (YACKOBOSKI) (nee WERNER) On January 25, 2010, at Beacon Hill Lodge at the age of 89 years, Mabel passed away peacefully after a long illness. Mabel is survived by sons Daniel (Sandra), Gary, and Steven (Anita), sister Esther, brother William, grandchildren Kerry, Christopher, Colleen, Curtis and Cara as well as numerous great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Charles and Catherine, her first husband Stephen, second husband Ben, her daughter Katherine, daughter-in-law Rosemarie, son-in-law John, sisters Alma and Viola, and brothers Charles and Jack. Mabel was born on the first day of summer, June 21, 1920. Her childhood years were spent in Woodlands, Manitoba where she met her first husband Stephen, then moving to Winnipeg to raise and nurture her children. Her later years were spent enjoying her grandchildren and their accomplishments. The family would like to thank the staff of Beacon Hill Lodge for the excellent care they provided to Mabel over the years. Cremation has taken place. A private family service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Mabel to the Alzheimer's Society or the charity of one's choice. Love is patient; love is kind (1 Corinthians 13:4)
