February 10, 1938 – November 17, 2023   It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Irene Lockhart. Peacefully, with family by her side, Nov 17, 2023. Lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her children Debbie (Dan), Doug (Sonya), Darlene (Tom), Laurel, Joan (Craig), Gord (Linda). Survived by her much loved older brother Marcelle (Lucille).

Irene is predeceased by her husband, Gordon, parents, Wilfred, and Marie, brother, Henry, sisters, Louise, and Christine and great-grandchild Payton.

Mom was born in Forget, Saskatchewan and moved to Churchill in the beginning of her marriage to Gordon where they had their first child. In 1960 they moved to Stonewall and raised a family of six children. In 1974 Irene lost the love of her life in a tragic, work accident. She raised her family as a single mom working many jobs.

She enjoyed baking, gardening, reading, sewing, crocheting, old- time country music, dancing, carpentry, and renovating every place she lived. She resided in many places, including Churchill, Stonewall, Winnipeg, Selkirk, Calgary, Vancouver and Victoria.

She was an independent, hard-working, strong lady, with a sense of humor, and a great laugh.

Irene’s celebration of life will be held at the Stonewall Christ the King Catholic Church 315 2nd St. E. at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, November 25.

A special thank you to ILRC and all of mom’s care workers especially Angela, Anastasia and Larai. Also, a heartfelt thank you to Ken Loehmer Funeral Services.

In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations may be made in Irene’s memory to Independent Living Resource Centre (ILRC) or Alzheimer Society.
