Mervin Geirnaert

Peacefully at the Rock Lake Health Centre in Crystal City, Manitoba, Mr. Mervin Geirnaert passed away on Monday, January 9, 2023 at the age of 83 years.

He will be forever loved by his wife of 58 years, Yvonne (née Rheault); his children Paul, Joanne (Tim Sutton) and Robert. He also leaves to mourn his passing his sister Denise Le Neal, his sisters-in-law Cecile Geirnaert and Doreen Geirnaert, and his brother-in-law Ernest (Juliette) Rheault, as well as numerous  nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Mervin is predeceased by his parents Urselin and Dora (née Desrochers) Geirnaert, his parents-in-law Télesphore and Maria (née Labossière) Rheault; his brothers, Lucien Geirnaert and Antoine Geirnaert; his brothers-in-law, Armand Le Neal, Roland (Andrea) Rheault, Arthur (Madeleine) Rheault, Marcel Rheault and Roger Rheault; and his sisters-in-law Clémence (Hugo) Kotschorek, Rita Rheault, Jeanne (Léo) Lesage and Yvette (Lionel) Leblanc.

Mervin was born and raised on the farm near Mariapolis, where he also attended school. The love of farming drew him to work alongside his Dad where he resided. He fell in love and married his wife Yvonne. Both faced hours of long hard work. When Mervin slowly retired both he and Yvonne enjoyed gardening, golf cart riding and going out for lunch to local towns. There was always a continued interest in agriculture, farm animals big and small. Mervin on a tractor, a pay loader, gardening tractor, golf cart, we’re some of the happiest moments in his life. He will be dearly missed.

A private family graveside service will be held at a later date.
