It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Lucienne Marie Victoria Sluis (née Boisvert) at the age of 105, on December 3, 2020. Lucienne was born May 24, 1915.
She was predeceased by her parents, Ulric Boisvert and Corrine Cyrenne of Fannystelle, Manitoba; her loving husband Theodorus Albertus Sluis; step-daughter Marian (Jerry) and step-son Anthone (Bobbi).
To Lucienne, Theo was a loving and everlasting memory, and his family a loving model of family life.
She was well-loved by her step-children, Maria (Neil), John (Elizabeth), Betty (Mel), Thea (Jim), Henk (Linda); 15 grandchildren and numerous great and great-great- grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and dear friends.
The Sluis family wishes to express their profound gratitude to all the Villa Youville staff, Sisters Irene Rioux and Celine Vermette, the doctors for their excellent care, and especially Therese Bourgouin and Brunel Girardin for their loving support.
Due to Covid 19, funeral arrangements have been delayed.

  • It was with great sadness that we learned of our dear Aunt's passing. Heaven has received another angel. I will miss our telephone conversations. Rest in peace Aunt Lucienne. Love you always. - Posted by: Claude & Margaret Boisvert (Nephew) on: Dec 14, 2020

  • Unfortunately, I only got to know Lucienne this past year during the “outdoor visits” at the Villa. This is when I met up with this unbelievably fantastic and most beautiful lady. Sometimes she would sit outside (before or after) a planned visit and we’d talk. Always had interesting stories from her past to present. It must have been a month into these visits that Therese told me Lucienne was 105 years old. I was floored and in total shock! If only we could all be as healthy/interesting/sharp (even at 70) as Lucienne was at 105. I do want to add at this time that Therese Bourgouin whom again I first met at “outdoor visits” is another special lady. The love and dedication you showed Lucienne was very touching. Lucienne did mention to me on numerous occasions on how special you were to her. To Lucienne’s family and Therese, please accept my deepest sympathies. Lucienne was a classy lady. Stay Safe! - Posted by: Madeleyne (Nadeau) Fillion (Friend) on: Dec 12, 2020
