Winnifred Myrtle Stuart
Passed on December 10, 2019
(nee Procter) It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Mom, Grandma and Great Grandma. She died peacefully in her sleep in the early morning hours of December 10, 2019. Left to cherish her memory are her daughters Tammy (Ray) and Crystal. Her grandkids, Michael (Lacey), Shawn (Lauren), and Derek (Jessica). Along with her great grandkids, Liam, Emberleigh, Teylie and Sophie. She is also survived by her brother Fred and sisters-in-law Barb and Irene and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband of 54 years Jim, parents Jim and Marj, sister Edith, sisters-in-law Astrid, May, Edna and Muriel along with brothers-in-law Don, Bob, Armann and Lloyd. Winnifred was born and raised on the family farm in Woodlands, attended school there and later got a job in Winnipeg where she shared a small apartment with her best friends Astrid and Shirley. In June 1957 mom married dad and they started their life together in Vancouver, B.C. After a year long bout of home sickness she convinced him to move back to the prairies where they eventually settled in Argyle. Every year after school was done and summer holidays commenced mom would pack up the trailer and us girls and off we’d go with Dad to which ever construction site he was working that summer. It was a wonderful way to spend our summer holidays. In later years they took up the game of golf and spent many weekends and holidays traveling from course to course together and with friends. When they weren’t golfing they could be found working in the yard. As an avid gardner mom took great pride in her flower gardens that overflowed with flowers grown from seed. She also loved curling and was a lifetime member of the Argyle Ladies Curling Club. When she was no longer able to curl herself she would watch every game she could find on TV. Mom was always good at crafts and artistic from sewing the best Halloween costumes when we were kids, to making ceramics and then Christmas decorating for her table in the annual craft sale in town. She even decorated Tammy’s wedding cake which turned out to be the first of many. Mom was also a familiar figure at the local coffee shop and post office having worked there part-time for many years until Dad became ill and she stayed home to care for him. We will miss you Mom but know you are once again with Dad where you were always happiest to be. Funeral Service will be held at the Argyle Community Hall on Monday, December 16, 2019 at 2:00 pm. Interment will follow at St. Oswald Cemetery.
Sincere condolences to the family. Sandy Hallam (Taplin)
