MERLE INA HUNT (published on February 16, 2010)

MERLE INA HUNT (nee COWIE) January 22, 1933 February 12, 2010 Mom was granted her angel wings on the evening of February 12, 2010 at the Riverview Health Care Centre after a short, but brave battle with cancer. Her final days were spent with many visits from family and friends that Merle had touched in some small way throughout her memorable life. Mom's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. She gave us all such courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. Mom enjoyed country music, jigsaw puzzles and reading. Going for walks with her dogs and grandkids was a favourite pastime, as she loved the outdoors. The annual family dinner in March was a highlight for her, bringing family and extended family members together to laugh and share life's stories. She leaves to mourn her passing, her daughters, Barbara (Clifford Neil) Webb, Linda (Allen) Tandberg and Donna (Norbert) Wadien; stepson John (Heather) Hunt; nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She is survived by brother Ken (Darlene) Cowie and sister Aleta Ebling. In keeping with Merle's wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, February 17, 2010 at Glen Lawn Funeral Home, 455 Lagimodiere Blvd., (south of the Royal Canadian Mint). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Riverview Foundation, 1 Morley Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3L 2P4. Arrangements entrusted to: GLEN LAWN FUNERAL HOME 455 LAGIMODIERE BLVD. 982-7550
