With her family by her bedside, it is with great sorrow and extreme sadness we announce the passing of Marie Vicente of Thompson, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother at the young age of 61 on Friday, February 27, 2015.
Marie was born in St. Rose, Manitoba on February 3, 1954 to Otto and Eleanor (or best known as Laura) Kraska as one of eight children. With her uncanny wit and sense of humor, Marie especially loved being with family and friends. Her many talents and hobbies included cooking, countless crafts and enjoyed being the computer genius of the family.
Marie is survived by her husband- Frank; children- Vince (Sabrina), Chad (Bobbi) of Thompson and grandchildren- Claudia, Emily and Carson. Marie is also survived by six siblings- Lorraine, Paul (Carol), Anne, Carl (Bella), Armella (Art) and Albert (Hilda) and numerous nieces and nephews, to many to mention. She was predeceased by her parents and sister Charlotte.
Marie will be dearly missed but not forgotten by many of her family and friends.
Arrangements for services will be made at a later date.
Marie's wishes were that in lieu of flowers, any friends or family who wish to make a donation in her memory be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
