Peacefully on March 29, 2019, Mom passed
away at the Lac du Bonnet Personal Care Home with many of those who loved her
by her side.
Mom was born on January 20th, 1924 on the
family farm in the Maple Creek area, one of seventeen children. She often regaled us with stories about her siblings
and her adventures with them. We greatly
enjoyed these as we were growing up.
Mom was predeceased by her husband
Napoleon Jenvenne, her son Ralph, and her daughter Yvonne Henry (Les).
She is survived by her husband Paul
Julien. She also leaves behind her
children, Virginia Hodge, Rose Marie McLeod, Celine Storrier, Terri Schwartz
(Bill), Fern Kost, Art (Brenda), Louis (Charmian), Mike (Kataisee), Louise
Stroet (Adrian), and Marc (Louise). She was blessed with grandchildren,
great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
Mom had many wonderful attributes. She was a loving wife and mother, a whiz at
board games, an avid reader and a fabulous cook. She was renowned for her tourtière, fruit
pies and chicken in cream sauce. Her
homemade bread and cinnamon buns would have won prizes. All the neighbourhood children loved to be
around on baking day.
Mom was a very strong woman…one of the
strongest women we ever knew. She had to
be, and we are grateful for the example she showed us. Everyone has thought of her during their hard
times and found the strength to go on.
Mom had a sense of humour that always
packed a punch. Her children and her
sons-in-law all had experience with what she called “baise ma blie” (slang for
“kiss my smacker” which she said as she hit them with a lump of unbaked bread
dough…It was a Jenvenne thing and it loses in the translation.
Very unfortunately, dementia took Mom away
from us much too soon except for some treasured moments when her “old self”
shone through. Those glimmers of
recognition and love sustained us through the dark days.
Mom was many things but most of all, she
was loved and will be greatly missed by all of us.
The family would like to thank the staff
at the Lac du Bonnet Personal Care Home for their care and consideration of our
mother. It was a great comfort knowing
that she was so well cared for. Thank
you. You are all so greatly appreciated!
Funeral Liturgy was celebrated on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. at Notre Dame du Lac Roman Catholic Church, Lac du Bonnet, MB, with viewing 30 minutes prior to service. Viewing was held Tuesday, April 2 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Avenue E., Beausejour.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made
to the Alzheimer’s Society Manitoba, 10-120 Donald St., Winnipeg, MB R3C

know she helped, in some small way, in the work to discover a cure for this
“Enjoy your wings, Mama!”
