Obituary of Lisa Irene Yarema
Our happy, beautiful, sweet Lisa went to heaven on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, at 2:35 a.m. at Bethesda Regional Health Centre, Steinbach, MB.
Lisa was born on July 10, 1966, at St. Boniface Hospital, Winnipeg, MB, to Walter and Irene Yarema.
She went to school in Grunthal, where she had many good friends. She loved dancing, Ukrainian music and country music, she also loved karaoke. Lisa was the entertainer at all our gatherings.
Lisa moved in with Richard & Chris in 2001. She was part of their family. She worked for Wilson’s Auto Electric during summer holidays, then worked in Ste. Anne at the Thrift Store and the recycling department, and again made many new friends in Ste. Anne.
Lisa went to many restaurants with Richard & Chris, and of course she would inform us of the good food and restaurants and which ones to avoid.
She went to the land, were she enjoyed the outdoors, deer and summer kitchen.
Oh, she loved her shopping! Making her shopping list over and over again, till it was right. Her favourite stores were Giant Tiger, Winners, Dollar Store and Tim’s. Her favourite colour was “Blue”. She loved flowers and nature!
Lisa, we enjoyed having you around and making us laugh.
Now you leave behind to mourn, Irene (mom), Lesley (brother), sister-in-law Sheila, Uncle Dennis, Auntie Steffie, Auntie Adene, as well as many family & friends, including Richard & Chris and family. Also left to mourn is my Lisa’s Gord (her very good friend of 37 years) and Karen, her Grunthal days partner. They always had fun together.
She was predeceased by Walter (dad), Mickey, Baba & Gigi Novak, Baba & Gigi Yarema, Uncle Roger and Uncle Norman.
Lisa, you will always be remembered and we will miss you with all of our hearts. Keep smiling!
Rest in peace.
