Adeline Day (Huff)
1955 - 2020
It is with heavy hearts that announce the sudden passing of our wife, mother, sister and friend, Adeline Day of Beausejour, Manitoba. She passed away peacefully on July 17, 2020 at the Beausejour Hospital at the age of 65.
She will be missed and lovingly remembered by her husband Stephen of 44 years; daughter Lindsey (Matt) Zirk; sister Marlene Cychmistruck of Minitonas, Manitoba; nephew Clint (Karen) Cychmistruk and their daughters Calleigh and Carly of Tampa, Florida; Aunt Ruth Wallie of Winnipeg, Manitoba; Aunt Martha Parker of Winnipeg, Manitoba; mother in law Eva Day of Dauphin, Manitoba; numerous brother in laws; sister in laws; nieces; nephews and cousins. Adeline was predeceased by her parents Dan and Marie Huff; father in law Eric Day; brother in law Alex Cychmistruk; sister in law Carol Day; and brother in law Jake Enns.
Adeline was born on January 13, 1955 in Swan River, Manitoba. After graduating from high school she worked at the Swan Valley Coop in the hardware department where she met her future husband, Stephen. They were married July 17, 1976 at the Minitonas First Baptist Church. In 1980 started working at the Bank of Montreal and her and Stephen welcomed their daughter in 1983. In 1988 Stephen’s job led them to Winnipeg, and Adeline continued to work for the Bank of Montreal main office for another three years before the family moved to Beausejour. In 2018, Adeline retired from an eighteen year career as an Educational Assistant at Edward Schreyer School.
Mom will always be remembered for the big dinners she made for her family and for her love of baking countless different desserts. She loved spending time with her family and friends and cheering on her beloved Winnipeg Jets and Blue Bombers. In the past few years Mom became more adventurous driving an ATV, going fishing, and even shooting a pellet gun. She loved gardening and would spend hours in the yard making sure her flower gardens looked perfect. Mom was an animal lover of all kinds and especially loved their cat “banana”. Adeline loved to travel with her family to Florida to see her nephew, his wife and their children, as well as making many trips throughout the year back “home” to Swan River/Minitonas.
We are so thankful for the wonderful care Adeline received at HSC and Beausejour Hospital during her final days.
