LUCILLE EILEEN BUBNICK
May 12, 1939 – June 4, 2014
A beautiful spirit has left us. Lucille Bubnick (nee Lusignan) gave her family the gift of love and patience that will endure long past her years. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, step-grandmother, and matriarch who believed that love should be at the core of all our actions, and lived her conviction every day. Mourning and celebrating her life is her partner, Walter Beckwermert, and her children Michele (Steve), Corey (Laurie), Terry (Deb), Greg (Robyn) and Sue (Miles) Johnson, as well as her siblings, Keith, Barbara, Doug, Roy and sister in law Erica; as well as in-laws, Donald Bubnick, and Jim and Elaine Bubnick. Grandma Lou was loved and cherished by her numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, step-grandchildren, and sons and daughters-in-law, whom she welcomed into family with all her heart. She will be missed, but her lessons and love will always be a part of those she touched. She is predeceased by her husband, Dennis Bubnick in 1982, and her parents Stan and Adele Lusignan, brothers Ken and Norman, niece Linda Bubnick, and parent in-laws James and Blanche Bubnick, and sister-in-law Connie Bubnick. Lucille was born in Somerset, Manitoba on May 12, 1939 and moved with her brothers and sisters to Atikokan, Ontario in 1950. She met Dennis in Atikokan, married in 1956 and they eventually moved to Esterhazy, SK where Michele, Corey and Terry were born. Lucille and Dennis moved to Saskatoon in 1967, where Greg and Susie were born. Lucille worked a short time for the Bank of Montreal and then 25 years for the Teacher's Credit Union, finishing her banking career as one of the first official Financial Planners in her field. The cabin at Big Shell Lake also brought many wonderful memories for her and her family. She retired in 2000, travelled and enjoyed life with Walter and her parade of new grandchildren. She moved with Walter from her long time home in Eastview in 2000. New neighbours quickly became close friends. Lucille's battles with her health came to a blessed end on June 4, 2014. Her heart of gold stopped beating and she could finally rest and start her new journey. Many heartfelt thanks to all the doctors, nurses and social workers with the PD Department at St. Paul's Hospital, the nurses and doctors at RUH with their excellent compassionate care of our Mother through the years and us all in the final days. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Peritoneal Dialysis Department of St. Paul's Hospital, the St. Paul's Hospital Foundation, The Heart and Stroke Foundation or the charity of your choice. The Celebration of Lucille's Life has been entrusted to Morgan Edwards of the Saskatoon Funeral Home at the corner of 4th Ave and 25th Street Saskatoon, SK. The Celebration will take place Saturday June 7, 2014 at 3:00 PM at the Saskatoon Funeral Home. All are welcome. It was her wish to be cremated and will be interred in a private family ceremony at a later date in Esterhazy, SK. Condolences may be sent to email@example.com. Arrangements have been entrusted to SASKATOON FUNERAL HOME (306-244-5577).
