Charlotte Edna “Lottie” Merino (nee Wood) passed away peacefully at Fairview Home on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at the age of 99 years. Lottie, the youngest child of Steven and Annie Wood, was born on June 28, 1921 in Boissevain, MB. She received her education in Elva and Hartney schools. At the age of 16 years, Lottie joined the Manitoba Telephone System in Hartney and was employed by the company for 18 years, spending the last 13 years in the Boissevain office. Lottie married Anthony Merino of Winnipeg on August 5, 1944 and they resided in Boissevain, where Lottie was an active member of the United Church.
The family moved to Brandon in 1954, and Lottie continued to work in the church, being active in the choir, ladies trio, teaching Sunday school and serving in the Missionary Society. For many years Lottie's summers were spent at the cabin at Clear Lake making special memories with her family. Quiet days at home were spent quilting, crocheting, baking and doing crossword puzzles. Lottie had the privilege of serving as a receptionist for the late Walter Dinsdale and Ken Burgess respectively when they ran for office. Lottie and her husband also owned and operated David Lawrence Men’s Wear in the Shoppers Mall until their retirement. She looked forward to their trips to California, Florida, Hawaii, etc. and she never ceased to be in awe of the beauty of God’s creation everywhere she travelled. A source of great joy to Lottie were her 5 grandchildren and 12 precious great-grandchildren. She would plan family get-togethers whenever possible and took great pleasure in baking her special cookies and dainties for all to enjoy. Besides her parents, Lottie was predeceased by her husband Anthony in 1983, brothers Clemens, Alvin and Roy Wood, sister Jean English, brothers-in-law Norman Sutherland and Art English, niece Anne Winiarki, nephew Glenn Sutherland and sister-in-law Jean Wood. She will be lovingly remembered by her sons Roy (Shirley) of Brandon and Don (Joan) of Calgary, AB and daughter Joan (Norman) Lepp of Clear Lake; grandchildren Lisa (Michael) Adams and children Jared, Jesse, Jalin and Joslyn of Neepawa, Craig (Jaimie) Merino of Saskatoon, SK and their mother Jan Merino of Brandon; Sean (Beth) Merino and children Audra (Zac), Zac and AJ of Calgary and Nanaimo, BC, Darren (Jeannine) Merino and children Kienan and Alicia of Cochrane, AB, Sherry (Jon) Merino and children Alexandra, Sloane and Iain of Red Deer; and nieces and nephews. In accordance with Lottie’s wishes, cremation has taken place and the Celebration of Lottie’s Life will take place at a later date at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. If friends so desire, donations in memory of Lottie may be made to a charity of one’s choice. The family would like to recognize and thank the Care Team and caregivers at Fairview Home who were so dedicated, caring and kind to Mom.

I am so very sorry for the passing of your mum.
Lottie was a very special person to me and I am forever grateful that I got to spend time with her.
I will cherish all the wonderful visits and memories.
She always told such fond stories of her life growing up, spending time at the lake, and becoming/being a mum.
She was such a kind lady with a friendly smile, and warm hugs.
She was a fantastic speller. We played hang man a lot and once when I got stuck I asked for a hint. She said, “ the letter you’re looking for is in the Alphabet”.
Her great humour and warm personality, is going to be terribly missed.
One of her favourite songs she used to ask me to play was
Thats Amore by Dean Martins.
That song will forever make me think of her. Sometimes when she didn’t know the name of the song she would sing me the lyrics and I’d find it online. I can still hear her singing with her hand gestures.

With love from Jasper

Awh Lottie Lottie Lottie. What an amazing resident you were. I grew very close to you while working at Fairview. I enjoyed our stories and your oh so gentle heart. You were kind, you were loving, and you were just the sweetest lady I have ever met. You have made such an impact in my life, and you will be forever missed. You had the best smile, and the sweetest little chuckle. I will miss you❤️
