Marie Sullivan

Obituary of Marie Sullivan

Marie Sullivan (nee Pineau) January 18,1936-November 14,2008 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sister after a courageous battle with lung cancer. Remaining to cherish Marie's memory is her loving and devoted husband of 52 years Donald James Sullivan, her son Donald Sullivan, Jr. (Lezlie Brooks), and her daughter Susane Morris (Bob), her grandchildren Caitlin, Nina and Sasha. She will be sadly missed by her brother Gaetan (Rita) and her nieces Line(Richard), Sylive (Marc-Andrea) and nephew Pierre (Nathalie) of Mont-Jolie, Quebec. Marie had a great flair for life. She had a vibrant, outgoing personality and loved making people laugh. Her wonderful spirit always made her the life of the party. Marie devoted her life to her husband and there was nothing she wouldn't do for her family. Marie and Don shared many adventures together in her life time, from sheep farming in BC to living on a sail boat in the Caribbean to spending winters in Texas. Their life together was certainly not boring! In her early years as a wife and mother she loved spending Christmas with her family in Mont-Jolie. It meant a lot to her that we were all together celebrating in the Pineau traditional family way. In her later years she enjoyed going to our large family gatherings with her extended family (the Morris'). Twelve years ago Marie and Don moved to Marchand, Manitoba. Mom enjoyed her quiet life and had made many special friendships while living there. She enjoyed playing cards with her friends and cherished her visits with her good friend and neighbour Doris. Marie had many friends in Texas and Winnipeg and had fond memories of all the people she worked with in the past years at Eaton's, Holt Renfrew, Zeller's, and People's Jewelers. According to her wishes cremation has taken place. We had a celebration of her life in June of this year with friends and family in Marchand and in Winnipeg. We had a wonderful time together laughing and sharing stories. It was exactly what Marie wanted and it made her very happy. Our family would like to thank everyone for coming and for making that day a memorable one for her. We would like to express sincere thanks Dr. Reimer and to all the staff at Bethesda Hospital and Palliative care unit who took wonderful care of her and did everything to make her as comfortable as possible. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Marie's memory to CancerCare Manitoba or the Winnipeg Humane Society.
