GERMAINE (GERRY) LOMBAERT (published on March 28, 2011)

GERMAINE (GERRY) LOMBAERT Peacefully on Thursday, March 24, 2011, Gerry Lombaert, the beloved wife of the late Arsene Lombaert, passed away at the Grace Hospital at the age of 86 years. Gerry leaves four daughters Jeannette (Gary) Gillis, Laurette (Rene) Aubry, Betty (Ken) LaLonde and Loraine Cramer; son Gary (Elvie) Lombaert; brother Fred Andries; 10 grandchildren Shane (Andrea), Beverly (Ian), Jarret (Stephanie), Connie (Armand), Victoria (Dan), Al (Samantha), Terri (Birk), Trevor (Cathy), Gregory and Jordan and six great-grandchildren Zachary, Hannah, Dana, Jack, Michael and Megan. She was predeceased by her parents Victor and Delphine, sister-in-law Mary Andries and son-in-law Barry Cramer. Germaine was born in Swan Lake on October 23, 1924. After completing her schooling and working in the local cafe, she married Arsene in 1943 and they made a home in Cypress River. Germaine was a loving and devoted mother who raised five children while maintaining a beautiful home and keeping large flower and vegetable gardens. She was a 4H Leader and served on the Catholic Ladies Auxiliary. She enjoyed coaching and playing baseball and curling. In 1966 they moved to Winnipeg where Germaine was employed by Quinton's Dry Cleaners and then Beacon Hill Lodge, from where she retired in 1985. Retirement allowed Germaine to spend more time on her gardening passion, while taking up five-pin, carpet and lawn bowling. Germaine enjoyed many winter vacations in the Caribbean and experimented with a new sport - parasailing. Cremation has taken place and Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 2:00 p.m. Thursday, March 31, 2011 at Our Lady of Victory Memorial Church, 249 Arnold Avenue at Osborne Street with the Rev. Fr. B. Wardzinski the celebrant. Interment will be in Swan Lake, Manitoba at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 6 Donald Street, Suite 200, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3L 0K6 or the Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre, P.O. Box 147, Winnipeg, MB R3V 1L5. A Mother is a woman who can take the place of all others, but whose place no-one else can take.
