(née DESROCHERS)

October 26, 1938 – March 27, 2024

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our mother on March 27, 2024. Left to mourn her are her children Louise (Tom), Rita, Roger (Helene), Gilbert (Jacqueline), as well as her 5 grandchildren Nicole (Cory), Raymond, Carolyn (Brian), Daniel (Karlee), Joanne (Andrew). Also 5 great grandchildren Taylor, Jordyn, Jeremy, Penelope & Judith.


Also left to mourn her are her siblings, Irene (Bob), Henriette (Eric), Angele (Bryan), Solange (Glen), Gilles (Diana) and brother in law Herve. As well as many more friends and family who she loved and blessed.


Predeceased by her loving husband Claude, daughter Rita, daughter in law Helene, her sister and best friend Marie Gamache, brothers Lucien and Armand, brother in law Ron Friesen, sister in law Lorette Desrochers, sister in law Marthe Gauvin and brother in law Leo Dube. She is now reunited with them all as she entered into Eternal rest after a long illness.


Mom had a strong faith, a devout Catholic, often praying and going to church. For many years volunteering at Soup Kitchens and helping with the Campaign Life Coalition. She traveled around the world with her husband Claude and the Knights of Columbus but her favorite trip was visiting Medjugorje, Bosnia with her daughter Rita.


She also enjoyed baking bread and knitting slippers for everyone. She was always happy to host family dinners followed by an evening of playing games like Skip-Bo, Mr Tuck and Mexican Train. She was a very humble, quiet woman. She will truly be missed.


Funeral service will be on Friday April 5 2024 10am at Holy Cross Parish; 252 Dubuc Street Winnipeg.

May you be blessed for your tireless devotion to Holy Cross Perpetual Adoration chapel. I’m sure it would not have been up and running without your support and dedication!  Hope you are enjoying the eternal embrace now. My condolences to the family.

I will miss you, but so happy that you are finally with our Lord.  Thanks for all the good times, for encouraging me to read the Bible, and for inviting me to join you at yearly Catholic Conferences and for giving us sisters a place to stay during the conferences.  I learned so much and always left inspired.
