Obituary for Marie Alice Hannesson (Fabro)

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our Mom, Marie Hannesson, beloved wife, mother,
sister, grandmother, and great-grandmother at the age of 97.

Mom was born in Winnipeg in 1923 to Richard and Gilda Fabro and grew up on Garfield Street
where she had many fond memories and made lifelong friendships. She attended Laura Secord and Gordon Bell Schools, and after Mom worked for Gault’s and joined TCA Airlines in 1944.

Mom loved the outdoors and it was on a ski trip to Banff where she met Dad (Percy) – they were married in 1949. Mom and Dad were together until Dad passed in 2016 and they are now together again.

Mom enjoyed skiing, biking and going on walks in Assiniboine and Bruce Park, lunching with friends and was a dedicated bridge player. Mom was deeply respected by many for her kind and caring nature. Her sense of humor remained in good form until her last days. Mom loved to travel, and she and Dad visited many parts of the world – they also loved their time at the family cottage. Throughout her life Mom was dedicated to her family while finding time to volunteer. Moves through Dad’s work took us from Winnipeg to Edmonton, Thunder Bay and back to Winnipeg.

Mom is survived by her son Lance (Carol); daughters Pamela Bramwell and Barbara Hannesson;
granddaughter Kelly Van Sluys (Bryce); and great-grandchildren Cohen and Isla, along with nieces and
nephews who thought the world of her. She was predeceased by her sister Rena Harrison (Fred); brother Sam Fabro (Marie); and niece Janet.

Special thanks to Susan and Chris for taking such good care of our Mom.

Mom loved all animals and if you wish, donations to your local Animal Shelter would be appreciated.

We love you Mom and we will miss you.
