Venetta Isabel Csversko (nee Gibson)
July 27, 1951 – October 13, 2020 (69 years old)
On October 13, 2020, Venetta passed away at the Neepawa Health Centre lovingly surrounded by her family. Since a confirmed diagnosis of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), Venetta has kept a positive attitude and serene outlook in life, right to the end.
Venetta leaves behind her loving husband of 46 years John, her children Kerry Boak and Kyle (Kylie) and her four beautiful grandchildren Payton, Tristan, Mackenzie and Tate.
Venetta was born to Bill and Emma Gibson of Neepawa, MB on July 27, 1951. She grew up in Neepawa and here she met her husband John. John and Venetta were married on Nov 3, 1973 and Venetta was introduced to farming life. She embraced this lifestyle and was actively involved in the farm operations. Harvest was always her favourite time of year. Venetta was the trusty grain truck driver during her years on the farm.
Family was very important to Venetta. She was very hands on in her kids activities and schooling. Venetta was blessed with four grandkids who she loved dearly. She got so much joy from their lives and watching all their activities.
Outside of the farm and family, Venetta was very involved in the Neepawa Curling Club, and was an active member and curler for many years. Venetta also loved to travel and over the winters attended many curling Briers and bonspiels, beach vacations and yearly trips to Las Vegas. In the summer you would find Venetta camping with friends, family or even by herself to unwind and relax.
Venetta was a very crafty and creative soul, dabbling in everything from sewing, ceramics and scrapbooking to oil and watercolour painting. However her greatest passion was quilting and the people she met through it. Venetta was a member of the Tangled Threads (Neepawa) and Pins and Gals (Gladstone/Plumas) quilting guilds taking many classes, participating in numerous retreats and travelling on a number of quilt themed excursions taking her as far away as the East Coast of Canada. Many friends and family have received her quilts to enjoy and remember her.
Venetta’s family would like to thank the kind and caring professionals at the Neepawa Health Centre, Dr. Darren Nichol (Brandon) and Dr. Jacquelyn Dirks (Winnipeg) for her care over the last number of years. As well, they would like to thank those friends that provided countless meals, distractions, encouragement and support to both Venetta and her family over the last while.
A private graveside interment was held as per Venetta’s wishes. In lieu of flowers, if one so desires, a donation in Venetta’s memory can be made to the Neepawa Palliative Care or to the Lung Association of Manitoba.
