Obituary

Glen Louis “Rabbit” Morrisseau was sadly taken at the age of 76 years old on January 30, 2022, surrounded by family in Dauphin, Manitoba.  

Glen was born May 11, 1945, in Ochre River, Manitoba to parents Arthur Morrisseau and Flora McGillis.  

During his lifetime Glen lived in Crane River, Thompson, Ashern, Fisher River and made Dauphin his home. 

Glen shared a life with his beloved wife Jeannette, they were joined at the hip. Glen always made sure that Jeannette had her tea and toast every morning and would serve it to her with his huge smile. Glen and Jeannette shared their love with sons Curtis and Kyle and their beautiful daughters Glenda and Chantelle. Glen also had two sons Sean and Roy and his twin girls Marlene and Darlene whom he loved always and forever. 

Glen attended school in Crane River and moved on to various jobs such as an angler and truck driver, where he would meet people from all over. 

Glen’s passion was raising his sled dogs and travelling to dog races all over western Canada. He would spend hours on the phone talking to his brother J.D. “Jack” Morrisseau on the phone about the dogs and where they were going next. They enjoyed meeting the other mushers for morning coffee at the hotel restaurants whenever they attended a race for a friendly conversation and a couple laughs. Unfortunately, due to back problems Glen was forced to retire from dog racing and pass this legacy down to his son Curtis, who he cheered on proudly and was always Curtis’s self-proclaimed number one fan. 

Glen had a lot of hobbies to keep him busy and make that 5 am wakeup call worth it. Every summer he made sure he had a garden to tend to and made sure his family had fresh vegetables to eat every day. Glen would spend a lot of time watching his favorite sports teams like the Winnipeg Jets, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and Toronto Blue Jays. Jeannette would know if his team won or lost when he came to bed and she would hear everything he thought about losing, this was after he called all his family and friends to express his disappointment with the playing that happened. 

Glen’s eyes would light up a room when he smiled, and he was blessed with a “Heart of Gold” and a laugh that made it impossible to not join in with him. Glen always enjoyed a good cup of coffee with family and friends he made over the years and developed a special bond with his grandson and namesake, Glen Louis, he had so much love for him with the brief time they had to spend together. He also would check on granddaughter Harper Mae to make sure she was being raised right and would always have the life advice needed to make sure she was.  

Glen was predeceased by both his parents Arthur Morrisseau and Flora McGillis, sisters Anne McKenzie, Beatrice McGillis, Florence Spence and Bella Morrisseau, his mother-in-law Mary-Anne Morrisseau, and many other relatives.  

With great sadness and heavy hearts, he leaves to mourn his family wife Jeannette, sons Curtis (Shirlene), Kyle (Trinity), Roy (Mackie), Sean (Cheryl). Daughters Marlene, Darlene, Glenda, and Chantelle. Grandchildren, great grandchildren, father-in-law Alva Morrisseau, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews and so many other loved ones. 

His final resting place ceremony will be held on May 28, 2022, in the Crane River Cemetery. 

The family would like to send a huge thank you to all the doctors and nursing staff at the Dauphin Hospital and Personal Care home. They gave Glen care, comfort and love and made his final days as peaceful as possible.
