It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Mary Elsie Vermette on September 23rd at the age of 81 in Winnipeg Mb. She enjoyed her recent birthday with her family by her side. She is lovingly remembered by her daughter Debbie (Stan); sons Shawn (Michelle), Gerald and Ronald; grandchildren McKayla, Taylor, Lindsay, Kelsey and Jessica; and great grandchildren Aidan, Lexie, Henry and Harriet; sister Jean (Bill); and many nieces, nephews and friends. Andrea is a close family acquaintance and her predeceased parents, Charlie and Vicki were very close to Mary from childhood. Mary was a trusted, loyal member of the Canada Revenue Agency for over 30 years, retiring in 2007. She is still fondly remembered by her friends and peers. Baba enjoyed a simple, comfortable life and was very content just hanging out with her family and friends. She was proudly independent until the end and the loving care of her son Shawn and family made that possible. The family would like to acknowledge the staff at Edgewood Estates and all her friends who went over and above to be sure Mary was safe and content. Nora, Janet and Mary were three close friends who watched out for each other. Thank you all. A "come and go" Celebration of Mary's life will be held on Thursday, November 4, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Edgewood Estates Recreation Centre, 60 Whellams Lane, Winnipeg, Manitoba. We love you Baba and will miss you forever.
