NELLIE E. MURDOCH (published on December 02, 2007)

NELLIE E. MURDOCH (nee DUSHENKO) I wish to announce the death of my mother on May 9, 2007, at age 89. She lived in St. James for over 65 years. For about 3l years, she worked at Eaton's Mail Order until they closed it out. She became a resident of Heritage Lodge in April 2005. Nellie was born in Crystal City, MB on January 21, 1918 and is survived by her daughter Janet McKay of Burnaby, BC. Nellie was predeceased by her husband James C. Murdoch and son James D. Murdoch; her brothers, Fred Davis and Mike Dushenko, and sisters, Anne Brandson, Gale (Pauline) Siatecki and Effie Davis. Mom was an expert knitter; also crochet. She loved doing most types of craftwork - there wasn't any craft she wouldn't try if it caught her fancy or looked challenging; she also loved to travel. A special thanks to cousin Corinne, who graciously agreed to be Mom's Advocate when I was home in BC, and husband Don for picking up or making items to make her room cozier. Mom enjoyed visits from numerous nieces, nephews, brother-in-law Bud Davis, neighbors and friends. Mom often told me how nice, pleasant and helpful the support staff was to her at Heritage, how she enjoyed the meals, outings and entertainment they provided for the residents. I owe a debt of gratitude and thanks to my cousins, uncle and anyone else who was able to be with Mom at Grace Hospital because I was too ill to travel myself. I also wish to thank the personnel at Chapel Lawn, 4000 Portage Avenue for the advice and assistance they provided at a very difficult time. A service will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Cancer Society of Manitoba or any charity of your choice. Arrangements entrusted to: Chapel Lawn Funeral Home 885-9715
