November 12, 1939 - August 26, 2020

It is with broken hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Cleada Myra Margaret Vatrt, on Wednesday, August 26, at the Selkirk General Hospital.
Cleada will be lovingly remembered and leaves behind to mourn, her beloved husband Joe of 62 years, son Brad Vatrt (Corinne), daughter Kim Champagne (Kevin), grandchildren, Chris Champagne (Megan), Joey Champagne (Shawna), Shannon Vatrt (Derek), Colin Vatrt (Chantel), Shelby Lamoureux (Adam) and her great-grandchildren, Brooklyn, Laya, Ava, Maya, Madden, Ayla; sister-in-law Pat, brother-in-law Joe Krizak and numerous nieces and nephews.
Cleada was born in Carman, Manitoba, November 12, 1939 to Cyril and Julia VanAchte. She spent her early years living in the St. Alphonse Convent, with her sisters, Freda and Audrey and brother David. Later, she met the love of her life, Joe Vatrt and they were married on August 23, 1958. Cleada spent most of her career working at the Scotia Bank and after they both retired, they moved to Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba.
Our Mom, "Gramma Cleada" or aunty was a special lady, with a sunny and loving personality, always looking at the brighter side of life, despite her early years. She was quick to smile, laugh, give a hug and little advice. Cleada loved to visit family, cook, shop, garden and more than anything, make beautiful flower arrangements.
She was predeceased by her sisters, Irma Castle, Freda Tomchuk, Audrey Krizak and brother David VanAchte.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice and keep a special memory of Cleada close to your heart.
Cremation has taken place and a family celebration of her life will take place at a later date.
