Passed on February 9, 2019
(nee Philp, formerly Lidstone) Charlotte Anne Greig passed away peacefully Saturday, February 9, 2019 at the age of 76 years. Mom will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by her son Jim (Linda), daughters Lara (Paul) and Pamela, step-daughters Marnie & Jackie and step-son Rob; grandchildren Nathan, Kelsey, Julian and Michael; and great-grandson Dreydon. Mom also leaves to mourn her brother Jim (Val), brother-in-law Richard (Gwen, Scott), Sprucewood Place friends, numerous special friends, neighbors, nieces, nephews, and cousins, as well as her fur babies Max and Lancelot. Mom was predeceased by her parents Stewart and Jane Philp, sister Joan, husbands James Greig and Robert Lidstone, sister-in-law Morag Sutherland and many other dear friends and family members. Mom was born September 7, 1942 in Hamilton, ON. She grew up as a middle child in Dundas, ON. As a little girl, Mom dreamed of becoming a nurse and successfully attained an R.N. degree from McMaster University. Mom was a nurse at Pinawa Hospital; she continued to do some nursing in Teulon and completed her career in homecare where she made many special friends. Mom raised Jim, Lara and Pamela with her soul mate, “Big Jim” on a farm just outside of Balmoral, where her medical knowledge was put to good use with cattle and other farm animals. Mom had a keen interest in alternative medicine; she practiced reflexology and massage for several years. She strongly believed in “life after life” and enjoyed attending church. Mom most loved visiting with her friends and family. She enjoyed shopping, singing, dancing, swimming, camping and listening to music. Her favourite way to celebrate birthdays was bonfire parties. Mom always had a smile on her face and kind or wise word to share. She had a great sense of humour, an infectious laugh and a spark for life that was contagious. We would like to thank family members, friends and neighbors too numerous to name who have given us love and support during and after Mom’s illness. Much gratitude is felt for the compassionate care provided by Dr. Christiansen and the rest of the amazing staff at St. Boniface Hospital. A Service of Remembrance will be held at the Balmoral Memorial Hall, Balmoral, MB., led by Reverends Glen & Heather Laliberty on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 11:00 a.m., followed by a luncheon. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
