Theodore Frederik Stanley Mate

October 21, 2017


It is with great sadness and heartbreak that Janelle and Andrew Mate announce the death of their son, Theodore Frederik Stanley Mate.

Theo was born October 21, 2017 at 3:36 p.m. at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg.  He weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces and was 22 inches long. 


Theo entered this world the most beautiful sleeping angel.  He spent 38 weeks and 2 days with us, every moment of which was a blessing.  We are so lucky that Theo got to meet so many family and friends – he was surrounded by so much love. His brief but wonderful time with us has already touched so many people.  Theodore joins his older sibling, Riley, in heaven.

The family would like to thank all the nursing staff (Gail, Sheila, Nicole, Sari and Jennifer) in LDRP at St. Boniface Hospital for their kindness, compassion and care.  Special thanks to Dr. Katz for his extraordinary prenatal care of Theo.

Cremation has taken place at the family’s request. 

A celebration of life will be held in January 2018.


“An elephant never forgets, and we will never forget you.” Theodore, you will always be our sunshine.
