In the Selkirk area and Interlake Since 1935
Emily Lily Niebel
July 20, 1933 – July 11, 2018
It’s with deep sadness we share the news of Emily’s passing. Emily is survived by her husband of 61 years Gerald; daughter Juliette; sons Douglas (Lizz), Larry (Stacey), Ronald, and grandchildren Luke, Stephanie, Jake, Travis and Kalvin; great-grandchild Kaiden, and sisters Josephine, and Verna. She was predeceased by her parents Frank and Maria, sisters Agnes, Helen, and Annie, and brothers Joe and Stanley.
Emily was born in Dugald, MB. The family moved to Mayfield where they farmed and raised their children. As a young woman, Emily moved to Selkirk where she worked at the Monarch Sewing Factory and later at the Coca Cola Plant. After Emily and Gerald married, they started farming in Clandeboye where they raised their family until they retired in 1995 and moved to Selkirk in 2017.
Emily loved having company, conversations and a good laugh. Emily was known as a loving, kind-hearted, generous, down-to-earth, open and honest, humble person, and a favorite aunty of her many nieces and nephews.
Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, July 20 at 1:00 p.m. in the Notre Dame Roman Catholic Church in Selkirk, MB. with Father Stan Gacek officiating. A viewing will be held prior to the Mass. Interment will follow in the Parish cemetery.
A big thank you to the doctors and staff at Selkirk Regional Health Centre and Home Care staff. Special thanks to family members and friends who visited with Emily during her hospital stay. Emily cherished and greatly appreciated the support and comfort you brought.
