Obituary of Annie Myrtle Okapiec
Our loving, patient and supportive mom, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 at Beacon Hill Lodge, Winnipeg, MB. Her 100th birthday was celebrated with family and friends at Beacon Hill Lodge on February 23rd, 2020.
She is survived by her children Gail (Wilmer), Wayne (Maryann), Donna (Ken), Gwen (Dennis), 14 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her husband Frank of 54 years, her parents, one sister and one brother.
Mom was an avid reader, a creative cook, a talented seamstress and knitter. She followed the soaps and enjoyed all sports especially baseball and curling. She knew all the stats of the Blue Jays and curling competitions. She loved playing cards with family and friends. Her coffee pot was always on when company visited and her pantry was always full.
“Mothers hold their children's hands for just a little while and their hearts forever.”
Special thanks to the staff at Beacon Hill Lodge for their compassionate and empathetic care.
