TEST TEST VIOLA CINQ- MARS ( DECOSSE) September 29, 1930 - October 3, 2009 On Saturday, October 3, 2009, Viola Cinq- Mars, aged 79 years, beloved wife of Archie Cinq- Mars of Lac du Bonnet, MB, passed away at the Pinawa Hospital. There will never be another wife, mother, grandma, sister or friend like Viola Cinq- Mars ( Decosse). Her trademark kind and gentle spirit guided her throughout her life touching all that came anywhere close to her. Born in Somerset, Manitoba, a beautiful young lady met Archie Cinq- Mars and they were married, for 58 years. Living in Somerset, Winnipeg, Grand Rapids and then retiring in Lac du Bonnet their home was filled with children, friends, and of course Vi’s fabulous cooking. Vi and Archie were avid travellers to such destinations as Mexico, Cuba, Rome, Israel, Hawaii, USA, Africa, Portugal, Costa Rica, from one coast of Canada to the other and of course Vi’s cherished trips to Vegas. After having her six children Vi went to “ work” at the Grand Rapids Esso and then with Manitoba Hydro where she was known as mom to all the guys there. Vi’s garden was always the best and she amazed us with how she could work in the garden all day and still have the energy to bake, pickle/ can and entertain. We especially enjoyed the last five months of our mother’s life when many family and friends gathered around her and heard her talk, something she rarely did before being diagnosed with cancer. Missing her already are her children Norma, Rheal ( Norma), Brian ( Karen), Brenda ( Doug), Marie ( Eldon), Lisa ( Cliff), her grandchildren, Brigette ( Pat), Robin ( Tara), Lise ( Pax), Kerrie ( Mark), Amber ( Ryan), Dylan ( Marjanna), Devron ( Lisa), Tiffany ( Evan), Dustin and her very special great- grandchildren Brady and Ella. Vi had a very strong faith in the Lord and will join her parents and siblings that have gone before her, leaving behind Emil ( Mary), Rennie ( Diane) and Cecile ( Bill). We would like to send special thanks to the Pinawa Hospital staff, especially Myrna, who helped us through our confusion and tears. The best hospital staff one could ever imagine. Funeral services will be held at the Lac du Bonnet Roman Catholic Parish on Wednesday, October 9th at 11: 00 a. m.

Les was born in the Weston area of Winnipeg in 1924 where he lived most of his life, met his wife Violet and settled down to start a family. In 1942 Les started work as an elevator operator with the Manitoba Telephone System. When the Second World War started, he joined the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals. Les’s leadership skills soon had him working as an instructor and then took him to Officer Training School. He also served as a guard at a prisoner of war camp. When the war ended, Les returned home and once again worked for the Manitoba Telephone System. He held various positions in both the plant and commercial departments and was promoted into management. Les worked in Winnipeg except for a 6 year period when he transferred to Dauphin, MB. He retired in 1981 after 39 years of service. Les remained active in the Canadian Army Reserves, both with the Royal Winnipeg Rifles and for a short stint as Commanding Officer of the 17th Field Battery in Dauphin. His greatest feeling of pride was to become the Commanding Officer of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles, a position he held for 3 years. On retiring from this position, Les took an active part in the regimental museum, bringing it from a room of boxes and old uniforms to a display gallery and a “ walk back in time” which he was proud to display to Prince Charles when he visited Winnipeg. Les was also honored when chosen to be an Aide to the Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba. During retirement, Les spent many hours with Vi working on their cottage at Loni Beach, North of Gimli Manitoba. With the kids leaving home and having an empty nest, Les and Vi eventually sold their cottage and house, and moved into an apartment. When Les became ill, with Alzheimer’s dementia, he moved to the Calvary Place Personal Care Home, where he lived till his passing.
