Born in Trois Rivieres and raised in Montreal, she came to St. John’s in the early 50s with her husband with two small boys and she had two more boys here in the years that followed. She spoke little English on arrival but that proved no barrier to her charm, energy and determination. She was a lady of style, grace, charm, gentle humour, culture and talent, and a true mistress of the domestic arts. A gracious hostess, she set a table that was second to none, especially at Christmas. In addition to singing, drawing and painting, she also knitted, crocheted and sewed like a professional. Outside the home she was active in the community as a founding and executive member of the Association Francophone de St. Jean, an executive member for the Association Francophone de Terre-neuve et du Labrador, and as a long-time supporter of the St. John's Multi-cultural Association. She worked to bring people together. She was formally recognized by the province when she was awarded the Newfoundland and Labrador Volunteer Medal in November 2001. She will be resting at Carnell's Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road with visitation on Saturday, January 5, 2008 from 7-9 p.m. and Sunday, January 6, 2008 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service to take place on Monday, January 7, 2008 at 9:30 a.m. at St. Pius X Church.
