Marcel Vermeire

Peacefully on Sunday April 29, 2018, at River Park Gardens Personal Care Home in Winnipeg, MB., Marcel Noël Vermeire passed away at the age of 91.

Marcel was predeceased by his wife Rachel (Beernaerts), his parents Arthur and Marie (Boulet) Vermeire,  his sisters Julia Hutlet and Clara DeJaegher, his grandson Steven Vermeire, his in-laws Aime DeJaegher, Goerge Verdonck, Lionel Hutlet, Leon and Margaret Beernaerts and Remi and Enid (Poteau) Beernaerts.

Marcel is survived by his three sons, Terry (Evelyne), Rick (Karen) and Grant (Simone); six grand-children Janene, Scott (Diane),  Amanda (J.P.), Jodie (Brett), Lianne (Chris) and Melanie; four great grand-children, Nolan, Zacharie, Sophie and Dominique. He also leaves to mourn his sisters Isabelle Verdonck and Lorraine (Roland) Charbonneau and his sister in-law Nancy Beernaerts.

Dad was born on December 25, 1926, in Swan Lake MB. He married Rachel Beernaerts in 1952 and together they raised their family and stayed on the farm until they retired and moved to Swan Lake. In 2013 he moved to the Notre Dame de Lourdes Foyer. He was transferred to River Park Gardens in 2016.

Dancing was a big part of mom and dad's social life. In his adult years dad was an avid curler. He curled in many bonspiels throughout the neighbouring towns. He also enjoyed playing and watching baseball. Dad loved being outside, working his land, tending to his livestock and later tending to his garden and yard.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and caregivers of The Notre Dame de Lourdes Foyer and of The River Park Gardens for the excellent care and support they provided for Marcel and his family through the years.

Funeral services will be held at the St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church, in Swan Lake Manitoba on Friday, May 11, 2018.  Recitation of the Rosary at 1:30 followed by Mass of Christian Burial at 2 p.m. with Father Vincent Lusty celebrating. Interment in the St. Martin of Tours Parish Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Marcel's memory to the Lorne Memorial Hospital in Swan Lake.
