Olive Jean Weremy
On Thursday, April 23, 2020 at the Selkirk Regional Health Centre, at the age of 86 years, it is with heartfelt sadness we announce that Olive Weremy has peacefully gone to her heavenly Home in the loving arms of our Lord and re-united with her husband Harry.
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Janice (Don) and grandson Matthew. Her son Andy (Lisa) and granddaughters, Lexi, Lauren and Liv. She also leaves to cherish her memory, her sister Eileen Malak.
Olive was predeceased by her husband of 46 years Harry, her parents Alice and John, brother Bill and sister Mary.
Born in Winnipeg and a graduate of Kelvin High School, Olive spent the majority of her adult life in St. Andrews and Selkirk area. Her career path lead her to employment with MTS, Health Sciences Centre and her most treasured employed time was at St. Benedict’s Monastery where she spent 27 years until her retirement as the Centre Receptionist. She went to work each day with joy in her heart and said she felt close to “our Lord”.
Her Faith and love of her Family were always very important. These two virtues were the centre of her world and she adored her children and grandchildren and family times together.
After the passing of her husband Harry and in her later years she resided at the Knights Centre. She took great pride in being able to live independently, participating in weekly Mass, attending social gatherings and outings. A special thank you goes out to the Home Care “girls” for the wonderful care given to mom while at the Knights.
Olive was a kind and gentle soul with a beautiful heart. She will be greatly missed by family and friends. Her memory will live on, forever in our hearts.
Thanks goes out to the Paramedics, Nursing staff, Dr. Zoppa and Father Stan Gacek for the care given to mom.
As per her wishes, cremation has taken place, a celebration of life is pending and will be held when it is safe for us to gather again to celebrate the life of our mother, sister and friend, Olive.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Olive’s memory to St. Benedict’s Monastery, 225 Masters Ave. West St. Paul, MB R4A 1A9.
May you find rest and comfort in the Love and Hope of God and those who cared for you so deeply.
