CELESTE ZEINSTRA, passed away peacefully of cancer with John, her loving husband of 47 years and her son Roger by her side, at the St. Michael’s Health Centre – Palliative Care Unit, on Monday, December 14, 2020 at the age of 66 years.

She was predeceased by her son, Robert, brother Ron, her parents, in-laws, four sisters-in-law and her brother-in-law.

Celeste was born in Letellier, MB to Gerald and Ida Leclair and was raised there until she was age 17. When her grandparents purchased the Picture Butte Hotel, her family moved to there to help run the business. There, she also met John, the love of her life, and they married in 1973. They farmed and raised their family in Picture Butte and Enchant.

Celeste was full of energy and life. She enjoyed spending time and socializing with her family and friends, travelling, and hands on hobbies of sewing, cooking & baking and knitting. She belonged to several social clubs and was always amongst the people. She worked several positions in the medical business where she made many connections in the communities she served.

Celeste was very strong in her faith which helped her immensely through her cancer journey. She was involved with the CWL for 45 years, starting in Picture Butte and finishing in Lethbridge at St. Martha’s Parish.

Once restrictions are eased we will celebrate her life the way she would want – spiritually and in a big way with all of her family and many friends surrounding and comforting each.
