Lindsae Gail Laing
Passed on June 22, 2022
September 4, 1953 – June 22, 2022 It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of our Mom Lindsae Gail Laing. Mom was born in Gladstone, Mb. September 4, 1953. Lindsae was predeceased by her parents John and Irene McIvor (Olson), father-in-law George, mother-in-law Mary, her brother Leon McIvor and Ronald (at infancy).
She is survived by her loving husband of 49 years Garnet, her son Ryan (Kara) Whyatt, Isabel; her daughter Sherri (Murray) Sonny, Ty, Cheyenne. Her brother Geoff (Audrey) family, her sister-in-law Norma (Bill) family and her sister-in-law Sandy and family.
Mom loved many things in life, baseball being a major thing, gardening and canning, singing, as well as every event her grandchildren participated in. She always told stories of all her cousins and times at the family farms in Gladstone and going to the pool with her brothers. Which we were happy to say we got to share in on those adventures to Gladstone. Mom had a voice of an angel and would belt out tunes while canning in the fall and would speak highly of everyone she would sing with.
Mom worked for Manitoba Hydro for over 35 years starting at the general office in Stonewall then moving to Dorsey Convertor Station at Rosser, Mb. where she was able to meet so many wonderful people from all over the world at their HVDC conferences, where she would bring home elephant statues from everywhere that she cherished.
Every summer there was always a competition as to who would get the first tomato off the plant for a toasted tomato sandwich, I would have to say there was many a times she did not win. Mom could make the best potato salad and the only one we know that mastered homemade mac and cheese that to this day no one could replicate as well goes her mac and tomatoes, which her brothers would request.
May you be singing, dancing, and enjoying your time now free of ailments and continue to be watching over all of us.
As per Mom’s request cremation has taken place, and there will not be a funeral.
In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations can be made to a charity of one’s choice.
The family would like to extend our sincere thanks to the staff at Stonewall Hospital and Rosewood Lodge for their compassion and kindness shown to Mom and our family.
