MARILYN FRANCIS TOUTANT
August 1, 1941 – October 13, 2023
It is with the heaviest of hearts we announce the passing of our dearly beloved mother, Marilyn Francis Toutant. Mom passed away peacefully on Oct 13, 2023 at Ste. Anne Hospital with her family by her side and in the loving embrace of her daughter.
She was predeceased by her parents George and Mary Page, her brother and sister-in-law Erica Page and her devoted and loving husband of fifty-seven (57) years, Robert Leo Toutant, who passed away July 19, 2022.
Mom and Dad were blessed with two children, John (Tammy) and Jacqueline (Gilbert) who in return blessed them with six grandchildren; Carolyn (Brian), Daniel (Karlee), Joanne (Andrew), Megan (Siara), Jessica (Arthur) and Natalie (Kris), who also blessed them with seven great grandchildren.
Mom was born in Winnipeg and lived in St. Vital her whole life up until the past 15 years when she and dad moved to the community of Lorette. Mom was the church secretary at St. Emile Parish and after retiring, she and dad enjoyed spending their time between Long Lake and Arizona and with their children.
When mom’s health started to decline, they sold the cabin and trailer and moved in with Jacqueline and Gilbert where they became active in volunteering in the community of Lorette, giving 15 years of service to the food bank, Catholic Women’s League, Knights of Columbus and helping out wherever needed.
Mom and Dad loved to travel and go camping, spending time outdoors with their many wonderful family and friends.
Mom was a fantastic cook and loved planning family gatherings and parties. The food was always very important and there was never a lack even for the smallest of events. She made the best homemade soups and buns!!
Mom will be greatly missed, but we are comforted in knowing she is back in Dads loving arms and blessed with all the wonderful promises her faith and love for God has bestowed upon her. She will remain now and forever in our hearts.
A Celebration of mom’s life will take place on Thursday Oct 19, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at Notre Dame de Lorette Parish in Lorette, Manitoba.
Moms final resting place will be in the Lorette cemetery with Dad.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who Prayed for Mom during this time and other times when asked; The Catholic Women’s League, Parishioners of Notre Dame de Lorette Parish, the Knights of Columbus and all Family and Friends. Also, much appreciation to everyone who was involved in Mom’s care, the wonderful nurses, HCA’s and Dr’s at Ste. Annes Hospital and Home Care Services throughout the years.
