We sadly announce the passing of Therese Lebel St. Pierre on March 12, 2014 after a short illness – we are saddened by our loss. She was born on June 14, 1920 in St. Perpétue l’islet, Que.
Therese is survived by stepdaughter Jacqueline St. Pierre (Blais) and stepson Jacques (Jean); grandchildren: Diane, Therese (Duane), Armand (Caroline) Barnabe, George (Nicole), Helene; 12 great-grandchildren, one great-great-granddaughter-in-law, many nieces and nephews from Quebec and Ontario; sisters-in-law Annette and Lucette, brother-in-law Eudore and their families; dear friends Gerry Blais and Lillian Leveque; the Holyk family (Claire), Anna, Ingrid and Klaus and Charlotte. We all loved her very much.
Predeceased by her parents, loving husband Armand (2003), daughter Henriette, sister Rita, brother Gerald Lebel and other ‘dear family members’ and two ‘dear family friends’.
After working hard as a young lady; she moved to Ontario where she worked as a cook in a sawmill-based camp where she met Armand and Gerry – her future-son-in-law. She and Armand moved to B.C. in 1959 and settled in Lone Butte. She ‘loved’ to pick wild berries and knit, to play bingo with Charlotte, and the holidays where her and grandpa made their delicious French Canadian tourtieres (meat pies – they were excellent cooks), gathering with family and friends, and travelling to Quebec. Her ashes will be laid to rest in the family plot in Matane, Que.
We will gather at a later date for a memorial for Therese and Armand. They are together now in the loving arms of God and there they will both rest.
We will love and miss you both very much.
Love from the St. Pierre-Lebel, Blais-McCreight
and Leveque-Holyk families
