Laverne Swetlikoff Obituary


 Laverne “LAV” Jacqueline Swetlikoff was born in Benito, Manitoba on June 26th, 1951. The first of 9 children, Laverne grew up in the Kamsack area and moved to Winnipeg as a teenager. Laverne returned to Kamsack in the mid 1970’s where she settled and raised 3 children. Laverne enjoyed being active in the community and volunteered her time in many organizations including minor hockey. Laverne started a career with Homecare in 1984, and never considered this career work as she loved what she did and continued to do so until she retired in 2016. Laverne’s bond with her clients was evident as many of these bonds continued beyond her retirement. After retirement, some of Laverne’s favorite things were to spend time with her Grandchildren, tending to her flowers and garden, knitting and crafting. After a hard fought 4 and a half year battle, Laverne sadly succumbed to cancer on October 31st, 2023. Laverne is predeceased by her father Jack Villeneuve, brothers Clifford Villeneuve, Brian Villeneuve, Dave Villeneuve, and her daughter Dana Angell (Swetlikoff). Laverne is survived by her mother Doreen Off (Netterfield), brothers Ken Villeneuve, Laurie Villeneuve, Terry (Iris) Villeneuve, sister Val Hiebert (Villeneuve), brother Kim Off, sister Lucy Villeneuve, son William (Tanya), son Conrad, Grandchildren Devan, Dustin, Dylan, Julia, Brooklyn, Blake, Ruby and Georgia and numerous nieces and nephews. A celebration of life will be held at Wolkowski Funeral Home on Thursday, November 9th at 1:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Kamsack Hospital Auxiliary, and/or to the Allan Blair Cancer Center.
