January 25, 1924 – January 18, 2022


Peacefully at the Health Sciences Centre, Marie Motoska “Nanny”, aged 97, passed away on January 18, 2022.

Marie was born in Pohrela, Czechoslovakia.  Marie was a thoughtful, caring, hard-working lady who loved cooking, gardening, cutting grass and shovelling snow – that made her day!  She treasured time with family especially her grandsons; they were her pride and joy.

Marie will be forever missed and lovingly remembered by her sisters Anna (Bernie) and Angela of Vancouver, B.C.; son Michael (Rhonda) and daughter Linda; grandchildren Brian and Kevin (Lisa) as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

She was predeceased by her husband John of 70 years of marriage, her parents Anna and John Bialik and brothers George and John.

Special thanks to the dedicated staff at River Ridge II Retirement Residence for their compassionate care of our mother.

A private family Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church with Rev. Fr. Dominic Yuen the celebrant. Interment will follow in Green Acres Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba or a charity of your choice.
