LEONA INEZ KRAMBLE (nee YOUNG) It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Leona Inez Kramble on the 16th of September, 2010 at Johnson Memorial Hospital in Gimli Mb. She was predeceased by infant daughter Patricia, grandsons Sean and Christopher and great-grandson Brady. Also her parents John and Mary Young, sisters Irene, Carrie (Charlie), Dorothy (Mike), Helen (Joe), Marion (Rudy), Loretta (Wally) and brother Bill (Irene); sister-in-law Elsie, brother-in-law Jim, nephew Ryan and mother/father-in-law Charles and Jean Kramble. Left to mourn her passing is her husband of 58 years Charles, daughters Irene (Norman), Sharon (Roger) sons Tim (Tracy) and Kevin (Christine), grandchildren Todd (Michelle), Pamela (Shawn), Colin, Mikaela, Kristjana (Keith), William, Isabella, Jasmine and great-granddaughters Larissa, Hayley, Mina, Shelby, Rebecca, Amanda and Kadence. Also left are brothers Harold (Inez), Leonard (Irma) and sister Edna (Harold), numerous nieces and nephews and a large extended family. Leona was born on the 26th of June, 1934 in Winnipeg and was raised on the family farm in Thalburg, Mb. She moved to Winnipeg where she met her future husband Chuck. They were married on the 30th of August, 1952 at St Johns Lutheran Church in Winnipeg. They settled in Transcona where Irene was born. Chuck was transferred to Regina in 1953 where they lived for 15 years and children Patricia, Sharon, Timothy and Kevin were added to the family. The family moved back to Transcona in 1968 where they lived until 2000 when Chuck and Leona moved to Gimli where she lived out her life. Leona devoted her life to family and friends. She never turned anyone away, there was always a place at her table and in her heart for one more person. Leona had a lot of love and shared it with anyone who needed some. She was well known for her baking, especially dinner plate size cinammon buns and single serving size perogie. She loved all celebrations and enjoyed having all her family with her to share them. Christmas was her favourite, even though it was the one that meant the most work for her, it was her labour of love. She would start her Christmas baking early so all fall the house had an aroma of Christmas. It was always a special time for all. In her later years Leona's declining health prohibited her from doing what she loved, cooking for her family and friends. Leona was a member of St George's Anglican Church in Transcona. Funeral services will be at Wheeler Funeral Chapel, 211 Regent Ave. W. at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 22, 2010. There will be a viewing before the service, with a reception to follow the service. In lieu of flowers please donate in Leona's memory to a charity of your choice. She had a lot of love for anyone who needed some FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS IN CARE OF: WHEELER FUNERAL CHAPEL 211 REGENT AVENUE, WEST (AT BOND ST.) 224-1525
