Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • My name is Guy Trudeau I am the son of Armand & Antonia Trudeau. To the St. Laurent family. I am so sorry for your loss. Ma tante Marie was such a sweet sweet lady. I remember when mon oncle Aurel and ma tante Marie and the kids first moved to Winnipeg. I remember the twins girls Lorraine and Laurette and George specifically. The Trudeau’s (Armand & Antonia) family tried our best to help ease the transition from farm life to city life for the St. Laurent family as best we could. I was very young myself I took to George mostly we were closest in age, all the children were nice people and all very kind I remember. Both our families were quite close. I was always drawn to ma tante Marie, and mon oncle Aurel, but mostly to Marie. I don’t know why but she had an Ora (a presence) about her for me. She was such a beautiful soul so kind and gentle. She reminded me of an Angel I can’t explain why but she did. I remember the loss of mon oncle Aurel it was so sad. I felt deep sorrow for the entire family, we all did. Marie was quite close to my mom Antonia, they got along marvelously. I was always so happy when ma tante Marie would come over for a visit, she was always such a calm peaceful presence. In closing I will say. In my heart of hearts I know that God has truly called on a genuine Angel in ma tante Marie St.Laurent. She was a beautiful, gentle soul.
