Lucille Anne Armstrong (Vieville)

It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who passed peacefully at home in her sleep on Jan 2, 2021. She fought bravely and determinedly over the past months as her body weakened. But she would often say “Well there are a lot of people worse off than me”.

Left to mourn her passing are her husband Henry, son Greg (Janet) daughter Kelly Ireland (David) Grandsons Jeff Armstrong (Debra), Paul Armstrong (Leticia) Eric Ireland, Tim Ireland, Kevin Ireland. Also her recent great-grand daughter and namesake Lucy Armstrong. Lucille was predeceased by her parents, Louis and Alma and her brother Pete. She is survived by her sister Vivien Skyba and brother Roger Vieville (Mary Ann) as well as numerous cousins, nieces.

Lucille (Toots) was born to Louis and Alma Vieville on March 29, 1937. Her mother would tell of her continual crying and of her father walking her for hours on end. She was raised in Richer, MB where the family had a store and her dad also cut and sold firewood. The family moved to a house on Marion St in St. Boniface when she was 6 years old. She attended King George school and Queen Elizabeth school.

She met and married husband Henry at the tender age of 17 on July 17, 1954 and 2020 saw them celebrate their 66th wedding anniversary.

September 21, 1955 saw the arrival of their firstborn child, a son, Greg who was to be the only child for some years until daughter Kelly was born, August 15, 1962.

Lucille held a variety of positions at numerous employers until she worked alongside Henry at the family business Henry Armstrong Instant Printing, until their retirement in 1991.

Henry and Lucille spent many happy retirement winters in Palm Springs, CA surrounded by a variety of extended family and friends. The summers back in Winnipeg would find her meticulously picking weeds around trees and in the gardens of their home just north of Winnipeg while Henry planted and watered the flowers and vegetables. She was also the queen of dead heading and pruning plants.

Lucille was very proud of her beloved 5 grandsons She loved the boys deeply, was proud of each one of them and always enjoyed spending time with them. She warmly accepted the addition of two granddaughters-in-law. We are so happy that she was able to meet and hold her first great-grandchild, Lucy, who arrived in September.

Lucille was a terrific cook (you can make anything taste good with enough butter!). Just recently she passed along her delicious Christmas fruitcake recipe as she oversaw the two granddaughters in-law make that year’s fruitcakes. She was also a meticulous housekeeper. If you washed her windows you had better make sure there were no streaks. She loved playing cards with anyone who would play but especially with the family.

While you never had to wonder what Lucille thought because she would always tell you, she had a very tender, compassionate and generous side as well. In the last years she would often remark how lucky we were to be born in Canada when you look at all the suffering around the world. She said she was thankful on a daily basis. Many remembrances of Lucille mentioned her warm smile and quick wit, which was evident to the end.

The family are very thankful for the care Lucille received from her health care team whose help made it possible to for her to remain at home for her final days.

Lucille, Mom, Nan you were loved dearly and will be missed greatly!
Rest in peace.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers/sisters, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep -

Henry, Greg and Jan and family, my deepest sympathies in your deep loss of Lucille. I have fond memories of my time working at Armstrong Printing. I love the Bible verse at the end of the obituary, and often have quoted it......we do not grieve as those who have no hope...and from that we can take great comfort. Be assured of my thoughts and prayers. Love Grace Waggoner
