Negri was born in The Pas, Manitoba on May 30th 1924 and was educated at Sacred Heart School. Negri attended the Misericordia Hospital School of Nursing in Winnipeg, where she achieved the highest honour of her graduating class. She returned to The Pas and met Dr. Joseph Leicester, the love of her life. They were married in 1947. The family remained in Manitoba until 1968 and then moved to Kelowna. Mom, thank you for your infinite wisdom and never-ending love. Thank you for our treasured memories of our wonderful childhoods, the laughter, the fun, and the beautiful music.
