1921 to 2021 ~ Our mother passed away on Friday, March 26, 2021 at the Algoma Residential Community Hospice (ARCH), with her daughters by her side.
Beloved wife of the late Lloyd Harvey. Much loved mother of Jill Barich (Rudi) of Sault Ste Marie and Jan Harvey Micay of Kamloops, BC. Cherished grandmother of Christopher Barich, Mikki Barich (Tim Barthelmes), Jayme Harvey Micay (Mark Martin), Kristie McDonell (Mark), Morgan VanDam (Nick), and Kelsey Schellenberg (Nick). Great Grandmother of Greyson, Wilder, Jaxon, Lincoln, Lucky, Levi and Landon. Predeceased by her seven brothers and sisters: Med, John, George, Bill, Middy, Vi and Florence Klinck.
Our mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend has lived a full life. She showed us all how to celebrate life each day with joy and grace. She started her day with a smile, her earrings, necklace, outfit, hair in place, and lipstick on… this was our mom still at 100 years of age.
We grew up in Regina and summered at B-Say-Tah Beach, Sask. She was the instigator of many adventures. She would make suggestions and away we would go with her help – parades, musical plays, forts, and on and on. She loved poetry and had many favourite quotes and an incredible memory. She loved all sports, was an avid curler, and played tennis and golf in her early years.
Then, in Regina and Winnipeg, she enjoyed competing in lawn bowling until she was in her 90’s. Throughout her life she played bridge and all card games. Mom and Dad enjoyed their winters in Scottsdale, Arizona. When Dad died in 1988, Mom moved to Winnipeg to be near her daughters. We are so grateful to have had her as our mother.
We would like to thank Dr. Parsons, Dr. Buehner and the SAH staff for the wonderful care our mother received. We also have a very special place in our hearts for the exceptional care by staff and volunteers at ARCH, thank you.
