July 2, 1970 – August 20, 2021
Our beloved daughter, Jennie Laura Crosthwaite, passed away quietly from cancer in Pinawa Hospital surrounded by her family on August 20, 2021.
Jennie was born and raised in Pinawa and always loved the quiet, peaceful and beautiful attributes of the town. Following graduation from Pinawa High School in 1988, she spent a brief period in B.C. but returned to Pinawa after about a year.
She was currently employed as a Home-Care Scheduler by the Interlake East-Man Regional Health Authority (IERHA) at their Lac du Bonnet facility. Much loved and respected by her co-workers for her compassionate and caring attitude toward them and especially toward her clientele, she will be sorely missed by all.
Left to mourn are Jennie’s parents, Christine and Les Crosthwaite, brother Paul (Shelley), daughter Irene Crosthwaite-Fidler, daughter Megan Mainer, son Teddy Mainer, grandson Aiden Crosthwaite-Fidler and Jennie’s partner Andrew Urban.
Special thanks go to Dr. Cody Clovechok and to all the staff of Pinawa Hospital for their compassion, care and attention during the brief, but difficult period leading to Jennie’s passing.
Cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service will be conducted at a later date to be announced.
Should anyone wish, donations in Jennie’s memory can be mailed to: Pinawa Hospital, P.O. Box 220, PINAWA, MB, R0E 1L0, Canada, or to a charity of their choice.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jennie 3 years ago. From our brief encounter, I got the impression that she was a loving mother, hard working, and a fighter with some similarities between the two of us. I am saddened that I didn’t get the opportunity to get to know her better, and even more saddened of her passing and the loss her children are going through. My heart goes out to all of her loved ones close and dear. Rest easy Jennie

I had the honour and privilege of working with and supervising Jennie until 2020. I was shocked and saddened to hear of her untimely passing.

When she talked of her family, her face lit up and you sensed her love and pride. My heartfelt condolences to her family.
