ELIZABETH GRACE LESSARD (née PURDEY)
September 27, 1926 - November 6, 2023
With sadness we announce the passing of Grace on November 6, 2023, at age 97.
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Kim Gray (Randy); granddaughter Jennifer Gray; and brother Don Purdey. Grace is predeceased by her husband Tom, and granddaughter Shannon Trachtenberg (Gray).
Grace was born in Saskatchewan but lived most of her life in Winnipeg. She was an avid golfer, bowler, and badminton player where she made many wonderful friends over the years. Her fondest memories will be of her time on the golf course with the Charleswood and Tuxedo Ladies.
The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to the Charleswood Care Centre for their kindness and care over the last two years.
Grace will be missed by her family and friends for her sense of humor and her always-smiling face.
In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal service.
Memorial donations may be made in Grace’s name to The Shannon Gray Memorial Award for Nurses at RRC Polytech.
Margaret's family kindly requests that all of her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by sharing photos, memories, and stories, using the comment section on this page.
