1936 ~ 2021
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother Eleanor “Toody” Briese at Beausejour Hospital on April 21, 2021 at the age of 85.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Roy of 65 years. Toody and Roy truly married the loves of their lives.
She is survived by her daughters: Cindy (Lance) Wadelius, and Cathy (Byron) Sault; her grandchildren: Michelle (Evan), Nicole (Jeff), Kyle, Riley and Jaclyn (Erik). She also leaves her great granddaughters Leona, Ellie and Hannah, her sister Vera Lucko, along with numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Mom was a kind, sweet lady who dad called a trooper, because of her inner strength, and the way she could handle whatever came her way. She lovingly cared for Roy as long as she was able to. Together, they built homes together. She was a fantastic gardener, and a great cook and baker. Mom and Dad travelled throughout North America and Europe. Mom had so many friends it was difficult to get ahold of her, because she was always on the phone. She was close to her family and grandchildren. Mom and Dad had a love for the outdoors, and people enjoyed “their many camps”. She loved casino trips with her friends. She and Dad shared great faith. Above all, family was the most important to her, she loved the family gatherings.
In lieu of flowers, please send cards or notes to Roy and his family.
Many thanks to Beausejour Hospital and staff for their care and compassion.
