Obituary of CHARMAINE PATRICIA DWYER
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of the beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, auntie and friend Charmaine Dwyer in the early afternoon of January 27th, 2024. Charmine was born April 23rd, 1962, in Kingston Jamaica. She lived in Jamaica for her early years, eventually moving to Winnipeg Canada in February of 1993. While in Canada, she went to college and got her healthcare aid certificate. She worked almost her entire career taking care of patients and residents at Concordia place nursing home beginning in the year 2000. Charmaine battled cancer many years ago, through treatment and surgery she managed to successfully defeat this horrible disease and was over 10 years cancer free and healthy. Sadly, in Dec 2022 she was diagnosed again. She fought her fight with everything she had never gave up hope, never shedding a tear, never feeling sorry for herself all the way till her last breath she held onto her family and friends support, her beliefs and hope she would win this battle too. She was a loving person inside and out. Every friendship she made, whether it was at work or outside of work there was nothing but good things said about her. Charmaine gave a smile to everyone, and every smile she gave made someone’s day better. Her laugh, her smile, her kind words, her work ethic and love she had for everyone is something irreplaceable and undeniable.
Charmaine, you were the sunshine everybody needed in their day, the rock your family needed in the hardest of times, and the person everyone was proud and privileged to call their family and friend. You are in a place of peace and deserve nothing but the most beautiful rest. We all love you, Charmaine. You will be missed every moment of every day. Leaving behind her love husband Ronald, children Omar, Andre (Cassandra), Sheree (Tim), sister Pauline and Valerie. Grandchildren Maya, Dezmond, Harmony, Olivia and Christian and numerous nieces and nephews. Predeceased by Mother Edna Anora Longmore, Father Joseph Tomlinson and sister Sonia Carruthers
Words from her husband Ron:
Honey, it feels like yesterday when I first looked at you and without even a blink of an eye, I knew I would love you forever. 45 years later, we have three beautiful kids Omar, Andre, and Sheree. Five amazing grandchildren, Maya, Dezmond, Harmony, Olivia, and Christian. What more could we have asked for? A beautiful life and the deepest of love. Our love will forever be bubbling and pure. Every minute of the last 45 years were so precious and more amazing than I could have even dreamed up. See you on the other side my love. Love forever and always, Ronney.
