Marie-Thérèse was affectionately known to her family as “Trousse”. A devoted and loving family oriented wife and mother, she was Pinterest before Pinterest existed. She loved to do special projects for her children and grandchildren filling her days with knitting, crocheting and baking. She grew up and raised her family in Blind River where she was an instrumental partner in the family business. A woman with strong faith who loved singing, she participated in her church as a long-time member of the St James the Greater Parrish choir.
A special thank you to her niece Hélène for her hospitality over the past few years and to the staff at St. Joseph’s General Hospital and St. Joseph’s Manor in Elliot Lake and Health Sciences North in Sudbury for their loving care in her final days.
Donations can be made to a local charity of your choice and are appreciated by the family. Family and friends are invited to attend a funeral mass at St. James the Greater Parrish on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 11am with Father Ignatius Xavier and Deacon Justin Legault officiating.
