IRENE MILDRED KAPAC
1926 – 2020
With sorrow we announce the passing of our mother Irene Kapac on May 13, 2020.
Mom is survived by her children Jack; Robert (Barbara) and their children Christina, Benn, Monica, Luke and Jon; Jayne (Rhonda); and Thomas (Mary Ann) and their children Owen and Lauren. Mom is also survived by her siblings Art, Ruby and Laverne and by many nieces and nephews. Mom was predeceased by her husband Jack, parents Rudolf and Amelia, and sisters Edna, Ella and Lil.
Mom was born in Friedensfeld, MB on July 7, 1926. She and dad married in 1950. Although on the quiet side, mom had a wry sense of humour and was always up for an adventure. She worked hard to provide us with a good home, but was also a keen follower of current events. Our home was open to all. After her retirement, mom was thrilled to have had the opportunity to travel and see something of the world outside of Manitoba. Her special delight, however, was her 7 grandchildren.
During the past 10 years mom did have to contend with multiple health issues and we are relieved that she is finally at ease. We are also profoundly grateful to River Park Gardens, mom’s home for the past 10 years. The compassion and many kindnesses shown by staff are a testament to what is best in the human spirit.
Cremation has taken place and a private service will be held with Pastor Lynne Hutchison of St. Luke’s Zion Lutheran Church officiating.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to River Park Gardens or Elmwood Cemetery.
