Marcia Ryzner Obituary, Death – We regret to inform you of the demise of Marcia Gae Ryzner (Minshull), our dear mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt, cousin, and friend. Marcie battled Huntington’s Disease valiantly and for a very long time before gently passing away on November 22nd with her loved ones at her side.
Surviving Damon (Chandel), Jayce (Jade), and their offspring Eberle and Louie, as well as her youngest son Nate Ryzner, are Marcie’s three children. Linda, her mother, Tania (Tim), Emily, Sara (Adam), and Myles, a distant relative, make up her family. She also leaves behind more aunts, uncles, relatives, friends, and her adored nieces and nephews than an expert mathematician could possibly count.
Boyd Minshull, Marcie’s father, as well as her grandparents Bill, Bernice, Mac, and Lillian all passed away before her. Her cousins Marlene, Shawna, and Matt; her aunts Jean and Betty-Anne; and her uncles Jim, Dale, and Maurice. Carson Cleaver-Bueckert, a relative of Marcia, unexpectedly passed away on May 8, 2023.
Boyd and Linda Minshull of Pierson, Manitoba welcomed Marcie into the world on May 1, 1972. She was Bill and Bernice Minshull’s first granddaughter, and up until the tragic arrival of her younger sister Tania and cousin Kent, she was the undisputed star of the Minshull household.
Marcie has always interacted with others, laughing and talking to them from an early age. Marcie was pleased to bring every new ‘friend’ she encountered in town to her mom when she had the chance, according to her mother Linda, and spoke before she walked. She was devotedly brought up on the family farm and was the first to share her wonderful childhood with others.
Marcie cherished both people and education. In addition to being active in baseball, cadets, figure skating, piano lessons, and Pierson United Church Sunday School, she also served on the Student Council and the Mental Health Advisory Board. Although Cindy Horrigan, her lifelong best friend, finished in a very close second, she had the largest hair and loudest laugh ever heard in the hallways of Pierson School.
She enrolled in Brandon University right after high school and graduated in 1994 with a bachelor’s degree with a business and computer science major. Marcie had a true sense of adventure; she spent her summer breaks working in Banff and the Yukon and whenever she had the chance, she would travel across Canada and the globe. Before eventually beginning her own company as an independent financial counselor, she worked in the financial industry.
