Louise Angelé Marie Drayson
October 9, 1922 – October 17, 2022
It is with deep sadness the family announces the peaceful passing of our dearly beloved Louise at Riverview Health Centre. It was a pleasure to witness her celebrate her 100th birthday recently with family & friends which brought her great happiness & joy.
Mom was predeceased by her loving husband Lloyd of 76 years, her dear sister Lucille Good, son Darryl, granddaughter Heather Swain, brothers Rene & Raymond & twin sisters Marie & Jeanne.
Louise was born and spent her early years in Ste. Rose du Lac, her middle years in Neepawa and Franklin and her later years in Winnipeg.
Mom was a people person & very community orientated. We are all proud of her scholastic achievements and her work in the community. She took great pride in her curling accomplishments which included being a finalist in the Dominion D Provincial playdowns in 1964. Many good times were also enjoyed at the family cabin at Clear Lake in RMNP. Mom & Dad were beautiful dancers & Mom loved her bingo, card games & puzzles.
She was a community volunteer & an active member of the United Church Women, the Royal Purple Ladies Auxiliary and an avid supporter of the Royal Canadian Legion Women’s Auxiliary.
Her memory will be cherished by her daughter Sherron McLean (Bill); son Duane (Rose); daughter-in-law Gloria; grandchildren Dallas Gogol (Justin) & Derek (Sarah Lazaruk); great-grandchildren Ryder & Hayze Gogol; Lily, Olivia & Cecelia Drayson; many nieces, nephews & great nieces & nephews.
Heartfelt thanks to the caring staff at the Grace Hospital & Riverview Health Centre for their compassionate care during her short stay at each facility. We also wish to acknowledge and thank the staff & residents of Sterling House & Linden Pointe for the friendship and care which Mom so gratefully appreciated.
At Louise’s request, there will not be a formal service. A private graveside service will be held at Neepawa Riverside Cemetery at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Deer Lodge Foundation, 2109 Portage Avenue, Wpg. R3JOL3, the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 1379 Kenaston Blvd., Wpg. R3P2T5, or a charity of your choice.
