It is with profound sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of our mother, memere, and grandmemere, Flore, on February 13, 2021, at the age of 94.
She is survived by her son Marcel, his children, Patricia (Darryl), Suzanne (Dale) and Paul (Jocelyn); Germaine (Ed), their girls, Gisele and Elaine (Garrett); Eveline (Lionel) and their son Norm, who was like a son to her. She is also survived by her son-in-law Rene Bourrier and his sons, Joel (Elise) and Cory and her grandson Marc; 15 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.
Mom was predeceased by her beloved husband Germain in 1990 and her children, Maurice in 2004, Leon in 2018, Yvette in 2021, and her daughter-in-law Fernande in 2011. She was the last surviving member of her family, having been predeceased by her parents, Arthur and Helene Chartier, four brothers and five sisters.
She loved to spend time at their summer home in the country, tending to her garden. She also loved to listen to, sing and dance along to her favourite French songs. She very much enjoyed playing cards and having the family over for get-togethers. She especially enjoyed the Christmas holidays, including New Year's Eve, when we also celebrated Dad's birthday and feasted on her famous "six-pates".

"We will miss you Mom, but it gives us comfort in knowing that you are at peace
and reunited with Germain, Maurice,
Leon and Yvette."

The family offers heartfelt thanks to the staff at Actionmarguerite St. Boniface for their love, care and compassion of Flore.
There will be no formal service. Private family interment by invitation only will be held later.
Friends and family are encouraged to donate in her memory to a charity of their choice.
