MARY (LYNNE) GALE
With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our Mom on September 19th, 2023. She was predeceased by her husband Donald in 2021, her parents John and Jean Watt, sister-in-law Cathie (Paul) Romas.
Mom is survived by her four children, Margaret (David) Wegner, Donald (Cindy), Robert (Lisa), and Nancy (Ron) Laurencelle; grandchildren, Lindsey (Jordan), Sean (Kathleen), Donald (Hayley), Scott, Peyton, Brenden, Hunter, and Alycia; her beloved great grandchildren, Luke, Zack and Brynn; and her sister Jean Watt.
Mom was born in Winnipeg and grew up in Norwood before moving into Windsor Park. She met our dad in 1960; they were married on October 21, 1961, and were seven months short of celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary.
Mom worked at Great West Life, CIBC, Flyer Industry and moved to MLCC till her retirement in 1994. Mom was very family oriented and she spent countless hours taking us kids to sporting events. She enjoyed golfing and curling, and watching the Goldeyes with Mary and Paul. After her retirement they moved to their cottage at Coca Cola Falls where they enjoyed snowmobiling, floating on their pontoon boat and playing darts at the Legion. They moved back to the city when dad’s health declined and kept busy travelling with the Shriners Vintage car club. They loved to travel and spent numerous winters in Oosyos, BC, where they made many new friends. Mom's best and last trip was to Scotland and England with her daughters, daughters-in-law and granddaughters this past June. She loved playing games and cards with her family, especially the online game Lizard with her grandchildren who live outside of MB. Her grandchildren were very important to her and she never missed an opportunity to spend time in person or Face Timing with them.
There will be no service per mom's request, private family interment to take place at a later date.
