AMANDA ROSE REBILLARD
With heavy hearts, we announce that Amanda Rose Rebillard peacefully passed away on September 17, 2019 surrounded by those who loved her.
She is survived by her husband of six years, Dustin Lee Rebillard; mother Paulette Rose Adolphe; father James Angus Wotton; sisters Darcell Bohémier and Chelsea Wotton, her beloved cat, Kitty; as well as numerous other family and friends.
Amanda was born in the northern town of Flin Flon and raised in the Interlake town of Lundar. She later planted her roots with her husband and Kitty in St. James, Winnipeg. Together, they created everlasting memories as they achieved the goals they set as a family. She was happiest spending time with her husband. He was the love of her life. Whether they were on the beach in Mexico, or at home watching the Bombers on TV, they were happy and content in the moment.
Amanda was the oldest of three girls. Together, Amanda, Darcell and Chelsea formed a closely-knit trio. As the oldest sister, she was always the most supportive one. She made her sisters laugh, wiped their tears, and hugged them tightly. Amanda was always there to fight and cheer us on.
One of Amanda’s biggest joys was being the most doting aunt. She was always ready with the best birthday gifts and the biggest smiles and hugs for Denis, Beatrice and Blanche Bohémier, as well as Jakob and Jerika Samborski. Happy to purchase every raffle ticket, or cheering on the 50-yard line, she was always there rallying and supporting whenever it was needed.
Amanda was a trend setter who had an original perspective on life. She had a sharp tongue with a wild and free spirit. To know her was to love her. As a connoisseur of proper art and music, Amanda’s lust for life took her on many journeys with a variety of opportunities to work and see the world. With every adventure, she created relationships and long-lasting memories with those who crossed her path. She developed life-long connections with her colleagues and friends that she deeply cherished.
Amanda had a holistic approach to health. She learned how to meditate and use the positive energy that surrounded her. As well, she was relentless and determined to stretch, exercise, eat right and face the day as it played out. With a passion for life, she was always thankful for the little things. She often said she felt blessed and was truly surrounded by love.
We love you and will forever miss you Big Sister XO.
