Irma McPherson (nee Kublick)
On January 17, 2021 our much-loved wife, mother and grandmother, Irma, passed peacefully at the Selkirk Regional Health Centre. She leaves behind her husband of 50 years Wayne, daughters Rachel (Jay) and Melissa (Andrew); and her beloved grandchildren Jane and Jack. As well she will be missed by many dear friends and relatives.
Born in Volhynian (Eastern Europe) on January 2, 1944, she was the youngest of five children. The family came to Canada after the war and settled in Minitonas, Manitoba. She moved to Winnipeg and worked as a dental technician where she met her future husband Wayne McPherson. They were married in 1970 and lived there for five years. They then bought a small acreage in East Selkirk where they raised their two children. Irma loved gardening, quilting, spinning wool, baking and going berry picking.
On her birthday, January 2, 2019 she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. With the wonderful care from all the doctors and nurses at the Selkirk Regional Health Centre (CancerCare program), she managed to live a productive and reasonable 2 years, planting a large garden and berry picking at every chance she could. If anyone asked her how she was doing she would always tell them to think positive and “keep on the sunny side of life”. Her kind nature and positive attitude will be missed dearly.
Donations can be made in memory of Irma to the Selkirk Regional Health Centre CancerCare program by mail to the Interlake Eastern Health Foundation, P.O Box 5000 120 Easton Drive Selkirk, MB R1A 2M2 or online at www.iehf.ca
