Irene Arseneault

22 February, 1957 - 19 October, 2012 With great sorrow, we announce the passing of Irene Arseneault on October 19th, after an extended battle with cancer.

Daughter of the late Jean-Marie and Lorraine Arseneault, Irene will be greatly missed by her spouse Anthony DuBoyce, daughter Merissa Tordjman, son Thomas DuBoyce and step-daughter Andrea Latella-DuBoyce, brothers Jean-Leo and Pierre, sisters Lynne and Denise Arseneault and their families.

Irene graduated from Concordia Theatre-Arts and went on to earn a MFA in Theatre Direction from UQAM. Irene's contribution to life's beauty was considerable, both in her roles as mother and wife, and in her careers as teacher and theatre professional. Directing, acting and singing in productions in and around Montreal, while teaching drama at Villa Maria and later, Sacred Heart Schools, Irene's love and compassion touched many people. She will be sorely missed by many.

A Memorial for Irene will be held at the St. James Hall, 642 Main Road, Hudson, Quebec, on Saturday, November 10th, from 3:00 - 5:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be directed to Bladder Cancer Canada.
