<div itemprop="description">Christina Langevin <br> <br>On April 11, 2017, in her 97th year, Christina Langevin (nee McGregor) passed peacefully at home. She had a long, full, happy life enriched in Love. Our mum, grandma/granny, great-grandma, and aunt, went to be with our Lord and Savior. <br> <br>Predeceased by husband George, sons David and Keith, and daughter Marion. <br>Lovingly remembered by children; daughter-in-law Shannon, Ken (Linda), June (Richard), Loretta, Shirley (Arnold), Darlene (Tim), Christina (Bill), Mike (Lorraine) with 19 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great-grandchildren, nieces April (Bill) and Anita Henery (Scotland) as well as numerous other relatives and special friends from her apartment block on Henderson Hwy. <br> <br>Mum was born in Edinburgh Scotland, orphaned at the age of 5 and raised in foster care which separated her from her 3 brothers and 4 sisters. She was conscripted into the Royal Air Force in 1940 and consequently never realized her dream of becoming a nurse. In July 1943, she married George and then moved to Canada after the war as a war bride travelling on the RMS Queen Mary. Mum & Dad settled in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In 1960, the family moved to make Winnipeg their new home. Mum had many different occupations, working with Canada Post, Cantors and retiring from T. Eaton Company in 1987. Her greatest work was being our loving Mum. <br> <br>She enjoyed retirement immensely with her family, bus trips with her best friend Agnes Jack, playing bridge at Good Neighbors, golf, bowling and of course many games of scrabble. <br> <br>Mum, we love you more than words can say and your passing leaves a hole in our hearts. You not only were the matriarch of our family you also were held in high esteem by all who knew you. The legacy you leave is the faith you shared generously with us, the love you showed us, and the respect you gave to everyone you met. We thank God for the blessing of your long and healthy life with us. You are finally in your heavenly home with Jesus and your loved ones, no doubt listening to the bagpipes. <br> <br>The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Department of Veteran Affairs, Winnipeg Fire Paramedic and Winnipeg District #4 Police service for their kindness. <br> <br>In lieu of flowers donations can be made in her honor to Canadian Diabetes Association or Cancer Care Manitoba. <br> <br>For those who wish to attend a viewing will be held at John Black United Church, 898 Henderson Hwy on Monday, April 17th, 2017 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. <br> <br>A Celebration of Mum’s life will be held on Tuesday, April 18th, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at John Black United Church with Rev. Dawn Ballatine-Dickson officiating. <br> <br>A private family interment will be at Glen Eden Memorial Gardens. <br> <br></div>
