Marie Irene Francoise Vetter (nee Cote), 93 years, of Lakeview Pioneer Lodge, Wakaw and formerly of St. Michael’s Haven in Cudworth, and Humboldt and Bruno, passed away on Sunday, November 27, 2022 with family by her side. Marie was born in Winnipeg, MB on August 24, 1929 and spent her younger years in Endeavour, SK. She was a nurses aide and met her future husband, John Vetter in Saskatoon. The two were married on August 17, 1948 at St. Paul’s Cathedral. John worked for Searl Elevator so they lived in several communities including Cosine and Tramping Lake. Later they purchased hotels and lived in Denzil, Paradise Hill, Delisle, White Bear and Bruno. Marie was a very hard worker, working long hours keeping up their home and running the hotels, all while raising five children. She loved to garden and had many beautiful flowers in her yard. Marie was a very crafty lady. She made flowers out of panty hose which were beautiful. She also did ceramics, paper toll, knitted beautiful siwash sweaters, crocheted blankets, and made crosses, bookmarks and coasters. Once retired, they lived at Wakaw Lake and Humboldt. Marie lived in many different communities over the years and her and John also had the opportunity to travel to Mexico, Hawaii and Arizona. In 2013 Marie moved to St. Michael’s Haven in Cudworth where she lived for 9 years. She enjoyed her time there and became a Diamond Dot master, making pictures for all of her children, grandchildren and many friends. In May 2022, Marie fell and had to move to Lakeview Pioneer Lodge in Wakaw. Marie leaves to mourn her passing and forever remember her generous and true heart, her four children, 11 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren and three great great grandchildren: RON’s family Sheldon (Tanya) and children Spencer and Paul, Marvin (Michelle) and children Desmond and Delrae and Myron and son Jordan; SANDRA (Bernard) Demchuk and family Cory and son Zack; RICK (Judy) Vetter and family Derek Vetter and Scott (Aimee) Vetter and children Farrah, Brady and Stevie; MARGARET Leroux (Clinton Honatzis) and family Vanessa (Stefan) and their children Carlie (Derek) and children Calvin, Pierson, and Benson, and Dawson, Nevin (Stacey) Leroux and children Rylen and Trysen, and Dione (Lenny) Kohle and children Kaden and Kamara; and LORNE Vetter and family Keagan and Kaitlyn. She was predeceased by her husband John; son Ron and daughter-in-law Zita; great grandson Johnathon; and many other loved ones and friends. Marie’s family would like to extend a special thank you to the Rosthern Hospital for the special care given to her and their family on her last days as well as to St. Michael’s Haven for being such a wonderful place for her to call home for the past 9 years. A Private Family Celebration of Life for Marie was held. Interment followed in the St. Bruno Roman Catholic Cemetery.
