Our family helping your family since 1908 - Generations of Excellence


Francois Giasson



On Saturday, May 25th, 2013, François Xavier Giasson, a beloved resident of Youville Home in St. Albert, passed away peacefully at the age of 94 years.

He was predeceased by his spouse of 53 years, Ernestine – the love of his life. He was also predeceased by his son-in-law, Peter Christensen.

Those who knew François remember him as being a loving, faithful and gentle man with a quick wit. He was forever charming and gracious and could be quite mischievous – he loved to tease, and had a wonderful “joie de vivre”. François was not one to complain, and he was constantly grateful for the simple things in life. He was extremely dedicated to faith and family, and taught his children many important lessons and values.

François leaves to mourn his daughters, Raymonde Christensen of Medicine Hat, Réjeanne (Bob) Taylor of Calgary, Denise (Allen) Wingrave of Edmonton, Suzanne (Stan) Cass of Millet; and his son, André Giasson (Garrett Epp) of Edmonton. He also leaves 11 cherished grandchildren and 10 (soon to be 11) great-grandchildren.

François’ family wishes to express their profound gratitude for the tender and loving care that he received from the Grey Nuns and the staff of Unit 5 of Youville Home.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Albert Catholic Church, 7 St. Vital Avenue, St. Albert, on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. followed by an interment in the adjoining cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made directly to Youville Home, 9A St. Vital Avenue, St. Albert, AB, T8N 1K1.

In Loving Memory of
Francois Giasson
