On Monday, March 28, 2022, Marie Menec passed away at the Manitoba Developmental Centre in Portage la Prairie, MB at the age of 78 years.
She was predeceased by her parents August and Alice Menec. Marie will be lovingly remembered by her siblings Louise (Tony) Pryslak, Daniel (Adele) Menec, Patricia Menec (John Rempel) and Rachelle Pallister, along with numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. She will also be missed by the residents and caregivers at MDC.
Marie spent her days watching television and listening to music, tapping her foot along with the beat of the song. She enjoyed wearing fashionable clothing, always accessorised with a necklace or bracelet. She loved having a stuffed animal to hold, usually her bunny or bear. You could always hear her communicating with those around her in her special way. She loved playing tricks on the staff, which she thought were hilarious as identified by her giggle. In days gone past, she used to enjoy a good Friday night Pizza Party!!! Marie had a great love of family and always enjoyed her visits with them. Marie will be missed by both her peers and staff, as she took a little piece of our hearts with her when she left us.
A private family interment will take place at later date.
As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made in Marie’s memory to the Lake Manitoba Camp Legacy Inc., Box 1532, Portage la Prairie, MB, R1N 3P5.
A tree will be planted in memory and cared for by McKenzies Portage Funeral Chapel. www.mckenziesportagefuneralchapel.com
