ANGIE WEDGE (published on October 16, 2010)

ANGIE WEDGE On Thursday, October 14, 2010, Angie Wedge passed into the arms of her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ at the age of 63 years. She was in the Palliative Care unit of the Riverview Health Centre as a result of her year-long and painful battle with metastatic breast cancer. Remaining to forever cherish Angie's memory is Wayne, her husband of 41 years of marriage; sons, Graeme and wife Cynthia (children, Liam, Aidan, Elise and Ava), Austen, Curtis and wife Dale (daughter Isla), Murray; sisters, Mary Nowakowski, Pauline Kolasa (husband Peter), Ellen Smith (husband Roy), Stella Lozinski (husband Adolph) and Rose Olynyk (husband Modiste); brothers, Al Barteski (wife Dolores) and Steve Barteski (wife Liz); sisters-in-law, Alvena Barteski and Jean Barteski and their families. She was predeceased by her parents, Anastasia and Joseph Barteski; brothers, John, Mike and Peter; brothers-in-law, Walter and Steve Nowakowski; and sister-in-law Rose Barteski. Angie was born in Canora, SK and grew up on the family farm near Invermay, SK. In 1965 she set out looking for adventure and as destiny would have it, stopped at her sister Rose's in Winnipeg. She was soon looking for work and found her first job at Moore Business Forms where she met her husband-to-be Wayne. Always ready to take on a challenge, Angie accepted his invitation for a first date which ultimately culminated in their marriage in 1969. She worked for the Department of National Defence and Hudson's Bay House before becoming a full-time mother and raising four sons in Charleswood and Fort Richmond. She returned to the workforce and was employed briefly with Lindero Agencies, for 20 years as a Realtor with Royal LePage and finally her retirement job as Director, Patient Care with Accucare Canada. Dedicated to serve, Angie considered other's needs before her own whether as wife, mother, grandmother, a volunteer with Richmond Kings Community Centre, president of the Catholic Women's League at Mary, Mother of the Church, and a professional salesperson who had many clients who also became friends. She was a full-time Christian, Roman Catholic and Marian. Her faith in Christ brought her to daily Mass and Eucharistic Adoration. Her devotion to the Blessed Mother called her to six pilgrimages to Medjugorje. Prayers will be held Sunday, October 17 at 7:30 p.m. in Mary Mother of the Church, 85 Kirkbridge Drive in Richmond West. Funeral Liturgy will be celebrated on Monday, October 18 at 10:30 a.m. also in the church, with Rev. Fr. Carl Tarnopolski, V.G. presiding. Interment will follow in Assumption Roman Catholic Cemetery, 3990 Portage Avenue. It was Angie's faith that helped her through the pain of the disease, endless tests, treatments, ambulance rides and the hospital stays. The family wishes to thank all the dedicated medical professionals and especially the Palliative Care staff who cared for her with such compassion in her last days. Her pain has finally come to an end; she is in the loving embrace of the Good Shepherd, the Divine Physician.
