Peacefully, with family by her side, Genevieve Millar passed away at the Menno Home for the Aged in Grunthal, Manitoba, on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at the age of 91 years.
Genevieve was predeceased by Scott Millar, her husband of 46 years, in 1995.
Left to cherish her memory, are her children Christine Millar Chase, Reg (Debbie) Millar, and Neil (Linda) Millar; grandchildren Geoffrey, Brittany, Jonathan, Christian, Andrew; step granddaughters Chrystal and Shyla; as well as many extended family members and close friends.
Geny was born in 1928 in St. Victor, Saskatchewan. On November 22, 1949 she married the love of her life, Scott Millar. Together, raised their family on their farm south of Willow Bunch, Saskatchewan.
Community involvement was very important to her. She was an active member of the Catholic Women’s League and the Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion. When she moved to Assiniboia in her later years, she also enjoyed volunteering at the Shurniak Art Gallery. Geny was a devoted mother and grandmother, and took special joy in seeing her grandchildren. She will be lovingly remembered and truly missed.
A funeral service will be held at 10:30 am on Friday, November 15, 2019 at the St George’s Roman Catholic Church 325 6th Ave, East Assiniboia, SK., with a private interment to follow in the St Ignace des Saules Catholic Cemetery, in Willow Bunch, SK.
The family would like to extend special thanks to the staff of the Menno Home for the Aged and Dr Gilmore for their professional and compassionate care during Mom’s stay.
If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers donations may be made in Genevieve’s memory to the Menno Home for the Aged Box 280 Grunthal, MB, R0A 0R0.
