Obituary of NELLIE KOKRAN
November 23, 1915 – July 16, 2019
In loving memory of Nellie Kokran who passed away at St. Joseph’s Residence.
Nellie was predeceased by her husband Joseph and all her siblings.
She was born of a Pioneer Family that came from Scotland and settled in Watrous, Saskatchewan. During the war Mom was in the Air Force then she moved to Winnipeg and married Dad.
She was a stay at home Mother who sewed many of our clothes, including coats. Mom didn’t use a pattern but made her own from newspaper. She also knit us sweaters without a pattern by just looking at pictures in the Eaton’s catalogue. Mom made Barbie Doll clothes with left over material. The doll’s suits even had lining.
Mom leaves to mourn three daughters, Pat (Gord), Jonell (Wade), and Rhonda, six grandchildren Corinne (Wayne), Sheryl (Jay), Kelly (Shelley), Jenifer, Ryan (Jessica), and Meghan (Brian), thirteen great grandchildren Chantel, Kristina, Justin, Austin, Steven, Kyla, Morgan, Macy, Mya, Korbyn, Olivia, Gwendolyn, and Scarlett and two great-great-grandchildren Kiah and Ayla, plus one cousin Joan (Bert) and numerous nieces and nephews.
Thanks to the staff of St. Joseph’s Residence for their excellent care, warmth and compassion that they gave Mom.
Cremation has taken place and a private family service will take place.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Breast Cancer Foundation.
