It is with great sadness we mourn the passing of our mother Lizzie Smith (nee Breland). She passed away peacefully at home with family by her side.
Left to cherish her memory are her daughters Donna (Rodney) and Marlene (Glenn); sons Michael and David; nine grandchildren; twelve great grandchildren; sisters-in-law Gracia, Louise and Linda; and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents Victoria and Aime; husband Adelard; partner Dennis Boyechko; son Danny; son in-law Brian; brothers Lindzie, Reuben and Felix; and great granddaughter Danielle.
Mom was born in Ste. Rose Du Lac and raised in Cayer, Mb.
A big thank you to the palliative care team, home care team, Dr. Haresha and the pharmacy team.
A Celebration of Lizze's life will take place on Friday, October 8 2021 at 1:00 p.m. at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg, 603 Wellington Crescent. Masks are required.
You may no longer be by our side
But now we have gained a guardian angel far & wide
You were our families’ matriarch
But now you are free & have left your mark
You were never one to sing
But now you are the sound of the wind beneath our wings
You loved unconditionally no matter who you met
But now you love endlessly with no regret
Your body grew tired & you started to grow weak
But now in our darkest hours you give us strength when things look bleak
Your spirit was as bright as fires burning in the night
But now your spirit has taken flight
You will rise with the sun & shine thru the sky
But the sun will not set as you will always be the twinkling in our eye
We will miss you as you fly high with the doves
But we will never forget you as you have taught us how to love
Forever in our Hearts
