Giselle Maria Lisoway (nee Legeny) May 28, 1970 - September 22, 2021 “Be in love with your life, every minute of it”. Devoted wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and cherished friend, Giselle left this earth to join the angels in heaven after bravely facing a stage 4 cancer diagnosis just a few short weeks ago. She leaves behind a true legacy of love to dedicated husband Tom, darling daughter Stephanie, and four wonderful sons, Joshua (Ally), Quintin (Halli), Matteo (Samantha) and Daniel. Giselle was so proud of and loved hard on her five grandchildren; Jake & Hannah, Charlotte & Penelope and baby Vienna. Giselle was born to parents Andras & Maria Legeny at Misericordia Hospital in Winnipeg, MB on May 28, 1970. Survived by brother Andrew, sister-in-law Terry Kovacs (Don), brother-in-law Bill Lisoway and many generations of cousins, she will be fondly remembered as the woman who went out of her way to bring the family together, always (especially at Christmas time). The love for her family and friends and dedication to the Lord through a life of service shined through everything she did. Whether it was in the kitchen baking up something scrumptious for the return home of loved ones, sharing the many traditions of her European heritage, making sure others were fed and clothed, cheering on her children at the rink and baseball diamonds, or simply sending a handwritten note of encouragement, Giselle felt such joy and fulfillment brightening the lives of those around her. Her infectious laugh, radiating smile and “get ‘er done” attitude made Giselle the top choice for spearheading many projects within the different communities she touched over the years. She just needed a little praise & worship music playing in the background and she could do anything! Walking a path of service allowed her to expand her love of travel on numerous mission trips around the globe, with the children and people of Bali, Indonesia stealing a piece of her heart. Giselle was predeceased by father & mother-in-law William & Anne Lisoway, grandparents Mihaly & Anna Gottli, Sister-in-law Debbie McKay and godmother/aunt Adrien Gottli. Donations in lieu of flowers can be sent to Neepawa Palliative Care. A private invitational celebration of life will be held for the family at White’s Funeral Home in Neepawa, MB on October 9, 2021 followed by a come-and-go celebration at 2pm at the Lisoway’s Patio of Peace.
