Obituary

C’est avec énormément de chagrin que nous annonçons le décès de notre très chère maman et grand-maman, Marcelle Desrochers (née Boutin) le 7 novembre 2015, à l’âge de 89 ans. Elle laisse dans le deuil ses cinq enfants, Marie (Harold), Pierre (Laura), Claire (Doug), Isabelle (John) et Dominique, ses treize petits enfants, David (Katie), Justin (Nicole), Jacqueline (Stéphane), Danielle, Andrée. Jean-Pierre, Joël, Stephanie, Jackson, John Louis, Patrick, Max et Louis, ainsi que son arrière petit-fils, Bernard.

Marcelle est née à La Patrie, Québec le 4 janvier 1926, neuvième de douze enfants de Louis Joseph et Marie-Adèle Boutin. Étudiante assidue, elle complète son cours d’école normale à Sherbrooke pour ensuite poursuivre des études en sciences infirmières à Ottawa. C’est là qu’elle rencontre Louis, l’amour de sa vie qu’elle épouse en 1953. Jeune mariée, elle quitte le Québec avec son Louis et ils fondent foyer et famille à Edmonton.

Marcelle was the cornerstone of our family, devoting herself to raising her children and supporting Louis in all his endeavours. She will be remembered for her warmth, kindness, compassion and strength as well as her ‘joie de vivre’. She was generous to a fault and did everything with simplicity, elegance and taste. A gourmet cook, Marcelle was happiest surrounded by her family over a meal. In her later years, she was a tireless and loving caregiver to Louis, accepting every challenge with grace and courage. She in turn faced her own health challenges with good humour and perseverance. The family wishes to thank Marta and the staff of Nurse Next Door for their care and compassion. Repose-toi bien Grand-maman, tu seras toujours avec nous.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Église St-Joachim Church, 9928-110 Street, Edmonton, AB, on Friday, November 13, 2015 at 4 p.m. Donations in memory of Marcelle can be made to W.I.N.G.S or YESS (Youth Empowerment & Support Services).

In Loving Memory of
Marcelle Desrochers
(Maiden: Boutin)
