Obituary of Jeanette WARZEL

JEANETTE (JANINA) JULIA WARZEL Peacefully, with her family by her side, on Monday, December 28th, 2009, Jeanette Warzel, aged 75 years, passed away at the Seven Oaks Hospital. Jeanette was predeceased by her parents Tadeusz and Helena Szczechowicz and her daughter Mary. Jeanette is lovingly remembered by her husband of 53 years, John, and sons Edward (Sheri), Robert (Doreen), and daughter Christine (Richard Prokopich), and grandchildren Robert, Ryan, Derek (Warzel) Michelle, Krista, Haley (Warzel), Samantha and Jorja (Prokopich). She also leaves to mourn her passing, sisters Aniela (Mietek Lipinski) and Danusia (Staszek Szwarc); Wujanka Maria Korba; as well as numerous nephews, nieces, family, and friends. Jeanette was born in Korzelice, Poland. During WWII, at the age of six her family was deported to a Siberian work camp where she survived starvation, scurvy and typhoid. Approximately two years later the family was allowed to leave and relocated to various locations including Iran, India, and Mexico. Her family eventually settled in Canada. Jeanette was a dedicated wife and mother who worked hard her whole life. She was known for her generosity, kindness, and sense of humour. She was a talented cook (although she didn't think so) who could whip up a dinner for a crowd in the blink of an eye. Jeanette made many long time friends while working at A&M Hurtig Furs. Her life made a significant impact on many who were lucky enough to know her. Thank you to the excellent staff at Seven Oaks Hospital, 5th Floor for their compassion and care. A special thank you to all the family and friends that wore a path to Jeanette's bedside. You were able to keep her spirits high. Rosary will be said at 9:30 am on Monday, January 4 at Holy Ghost Roman Catholic Church, 341 Selkirk Avenue with Mass of Christian Burial to be celebrated at 10 am. Interment will follow in Holy Ghost Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jeanette's memory to: The St. Amant Centre, 440 River Rd., Winnipeg, MB R2M 3Z9, a foundation close to Jeanette's heart or to The Seven Oaks General Hospital.
