She was predeceased by her loving husband Stan.

Marie Jane was born to Leon and Lea Morrissette on May 11, 1928. She was born at home at 6:30 am weighing only 3 lbs. In those days there was no such thing as an incubator so as per Dr. Mackenzie’s instructions she was wrapped up in lots of blankets and rested near the open door of the wood stove for the warmth. She was certainly a determined little girl as when she was nine years old, she contracted Polio and survived. She was directed by Dr. Mackenzie to chew gum to keep the muscles working to lessen the effects of Polio.
Marie attended Charleswood School, then went to work at Perth’s Dry Cleaners near Eaton’s. She met and made friends with Pauline and Teenie. They introduced her to stan and they were married on June 19, 1949. The moved to Transcona where they made their home and raised their family. Marie loved going to the casino, Listening to country music and watching the Winnipeg Jets and Winnipeg Blue Bombers on TV.
A special thank you to nurse Tracy and all the staff of Middlechurch Home of Winnipeg for all their care and compassion.
