VERNA AGNES YEREX
1929 - 2022
It is with deep sadness we say goodbye to our much-loved sister, aunt, great-aunt, cousin, and friend. At the age of 93 years, Verna began her journey into the spirit world on Friday, August 12, 2022 from the Misericordia Transitional Centre.
Verna was born and raised in beautiful Norway House, Manitoba to Christian parents, Dora and Norman McLeod of West Island. Besides her parents, Verna was predeceased by seven siblings and her loving husband Glen, of 56 years (2013).
She is survived by two sisters, Sarah Fedak and Mary Flett, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins who loved her dearly.
In her younger years, she hoped to enter the nursing profession but unfortunately gave up her dream to help at home with a very busy household. Later in life, she took up hairdressing and had her own shop in the basement of her home on Stiles Street. Due to health complications, she later moved to a senior's block in the Weston area where she enjoyed socializing with other residents. Verna always enjoyed visiting Norway House and spending time outdoors by the water. She was young at heart and cherished spending time with her nieces and nephews, and always showed an interest in their lives and careers. Verna remained proud of her Scottish heritage throughout her life.
Thank you to the home care workers and special assistant and friend, Betty. Auntie Verna, you will remain in our prayers, hearts and memories forever.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, August 19, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Avenue. Interment of ashes will follow the service.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Verna's memory to a charity of choice.
