Obituary of Annette Gougeon
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Annette, loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She will be greatly missed by her husband Denis, her children Daniel (Tanis) and Monique (Glen) and her grandchildren Mathew and Eric Gougeon, and Mila and Madan Frolek, as well as family and friends.
Annette was predeceased by her parents Alex (1973) and Anna (1982) Halasis, and her siblings Morris Halasis (2003) and Marie Koranicki (2004).
Annette was born in Winnipeg, MB and raised in the Fort Rouge area. She married Denis in 1965. In 1970 Daniel was born, and in 1971 Monique. She was a homemaker until 1980, when she went to work for her sister and brother-in-law, establishing herself as everyone’s favorite cook at Eddy’s Place. Annette subsequently dedicated her life to feeding others. Her career came full circle when she co-purchased Eddy’s Place in 2012 with her son and his spouse. Annette was always on her feet, until she retired in 2017.
Annette was a person that encouraged patience, understanding, and forgiveness. She was devoted to her family, friends, and work. She had a special place in her heart for her husband, children, grandchildren, and her pets. She was sentimental and had many collectibles. She loved playing bingo, attending concerts, visiting her children’s cabins, and trips to Las Vegas.
A special thank you to the family and friends who stayed connected with Annette over the years, especially the last month.
Cremation has taken place. Funeral will take place at Saint Ignatius Church, 255 Stafford St, Winnipeg, MB on Monday, April 4, 2022 at 10:45 a.m. A reception will follow at Eddy’s Place, 669 Selkirk Ave.
