Notes for Gladys HARDE

Her obituary from the April 15, 2015 Winnipeg Free Press:

“GLADYS MARION BARCLAY (nee HARDE) On Saturday, April 11, 2015, at the St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg, our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother was called home. Mom leaves behind her four children, Stan (Donna), Merle (Andy), Philip (Phyllis) and Les (Diane), nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, her twin brothers, Keith Harde (Sharon) and Ken Harde (Leola), brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Gerald and Lorna Barclay and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, George and Violet (nee Johnston), husband Jim (2013), many of her siblings and her daughter-in-law Carol (2001). Mom was born on May 5, 1931, and was raised, along with her 11 siblings, on the Harde family farm in Miami, Manitoba. On October 21, 1950, mom married the love of her life, our father, Jim. They made their first home on the Barclay family farm in Darlingford, Manitoba and several years and two children later we moved to Winnipeg where the two youngest were born, making our family complete. Mom was a working mother long before it was “fashionable’ and was employed by The Rentall Centre, McLeod’s and then Gambles before retiring in 1986. After retirement mom was very involved with the Brooklands Seniors Center and the Manitoba Agricultural Museum in Austin, Manitoba. Mom was especially proud of being made a member of the Fellows Association which honours those who have contributed in a distinctive and singular fashion to the development and progress of the museum. Mom was always a loving and supportive mother, a doting grandmother and an extremely proud great-grandmother. Mom had a twinkle in her beautiful blue eyes, had a sharp wit and always spoke her mind. Mom had many health issues throughout her lifetime and always faced her challenges with strength and determination. Funeral services will be held on Friday, April 17 at 2:00 p.m. at Thomson “In the Park” Funeral Home and Cemetery, 1291 McGillivray Boulevard, with interment on the grounds to follow. The family would like to thank the staff at the Golden Door Geriatric Centre and the staff at the St. Boniface Hospital for the care they provided. In lieu of flowers donations in Mom’s memory can be made to the Manitoba Agricultural Museum Foundation, Box 10, Austin, MB, R0H 0C0. Although it is difficult to say goodbye, it is a comfort to know that mom and dad are together once more. Until we meet again! THOMSON “IN THE PARK” 204-925-1120 Condolences may be sent to:”
