It is with great sadness that the family of Lucile M McPhee announces her passing on June 16th 2018 at the age of 84 of Dauphin MB Canada.
Lucile was born in McCreary, Manitoba Canada on December 20th 1933 to John Berthellet and Eva (Gearpiey) Berthellet. She had a total of eleven other siblings, five brothers and six sisters.
Lucile was pretty athletic, she played baseball, and was a pretty good ice skater. She had a real love for curling, she played for many years with her husband and many friends, played with the Kilty curling club and the Rockets curling club. When she was younger she also loved to be outdoors with the camper and boat water skiing, which I hear she got pretty good at and was able to do so with one ski. She was part of the AA group here in Dauphin for many years and absolutely loved the program and all the great friends she met along the way.
She was employed for many years with the local radio station and the RM of Dauphin
