(nee Chartrand) July 3, 1942 – May 14, 2020 It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Sarah Sandra Monkman on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at home in Gateway Manor in Teulon, MB. Left to cherish her memory are her children Angela James (Scott McQueen), Martin James (Cynthia), Darren James (Peggy Vincent), Ricky James (Roberta), and Shannon Laframboise (Kevin); her siblings Shirley Richard (Albert), Doreen Wright (Walter), Andy Chartrand (Flora), and Patricia Wolfe; her grandchildren Shawn, Phoenix, Sabrina, Jordee, Josh, Tiffany, Matthew, Jayden, Taltson, Raya, Jenna, Haley; and her great-grandchildren Rocher, Rhys, and Thea. Sarah is predeceased by her parents Joseph and Mary Chartrand; her siblings Paul Chartrand, Alfred Chartrand, Leonard Chartrand, Alice Nadeau, John Chartrand; her husband Stan Monkman, and her grandson Andrew James. Sarah spent many years as the family historian and storyteller, taking a strong leadership role in collecting, organizing and sharing the genealogy of the Chartrand-Sanderson-Lagimodière family. She was also a small business owner selling her beautiful beadwork and jewellery at local Métis gatherings and farmers’ markets. Viewing and cremation have taken place. As well, a memorial service was held on Saturday, May 23, 2020 at St. Cecilia Roman Catholic Cemetery in Inwood, MB where many of Sarah’s family and ancestors lay to rest in peace. The family wishes to extend a sincere thanks to the Teulon Gateway Manor Site Manager, Cindy Ferreira for her kindness and attention, and the Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority Home Care Nurses for their care and service during Sarah’s illness. A special note goes out to Sarah’s Teulon and Yellowknife AA Groups whose friendships and fellowship meant so much to her. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations (cheques) can be mailed to the Teulon AA Group, Box 403, Teulon, MB, R0C 3B0. We love you dearly for now and forever and will always hold the Serenity Prayer as a guide in our lives because it was so precious for your life and sobriety. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
