April 17, 1942 – July 26, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lalla Margaret Froebe, age 81, of Homewood, MB. She passed away peacefully at home on the farm surrounded by family.

Our precious mother and grandmother, Lal, leaves to mourn and celebrate her life, her children Bruce (Jackie), Murray (Victoria), and her loving grandsons, Nathan and Quinn.

Lal will be missed by her sisters Shirley (predeceased Dave), Harolyn (Cliff), and her brother Rodney (Terry). Lal was the oldest child of Harold and Jo Crampton who farmed in the Manitou area.

She was predeceased by her husband Earl (2015). They married in 1963 and farmed together in the Homewood area for 52 years.

Upon graduation from Misericordia Hospital in Winnipeg, Lal received the medical nursing award. After being at home when the boys were small, Lal took a refresher course and nursed at Carman Memorial Hospital for 30 years.

In 2013, Lal was awarded the Tranquility Clinical Practice Award and she was a lifetime member of the Misericordia General Hospital Alumni. Lal has been the volunteer secretary of the Carman Health Auxiliary for many years.

She enjoyed singing and was a member of the Carman United Church Choir and the Carman Active Living Choir. She was also an active curler and golfer. She enjoyed watching her boys’ sports activities and brought that enthusiasm to her grandsons' hockey and baseball as well.

Lal was an active member of the Dufferin Agricultural Society (DAS) for 30 years and was in charge of the display building for the Carman Fair. A couple of weeks ago, Lal was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the DAS.

Funeral service will be held on Tuesday, August 1, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. at the Carman United Church. Lunch will follow at the Carman Community Hall. Interment will take place in the Greenwood Cemetery, Carman. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Carman United Church, Box 1177, Carman, MB R0G 0J0, South Central Cancer Resource, 34 Stephen St #400, Morden, MB R6M 2G3, or to the Carman Health Auxiliary Box 2268, Carman, MB R0G 0J0.
