19-05-22 09-01-13 Passed away peacefully, in her ninety-first year on Wednesday January 9, 2013. Loving wife of the late Kenneth Johnson. This great lady and extraordinary mother is survived by her brothers Mac & Andre Tessier, her children, Sandra Farrell (Bob), Derek (Cindy), Mark (Wendy), David (Karen), Tara Bell (Bob), Robert (Lorna) and Patti Eweschuck (Willie), her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We will miss her constant reminders of "love you, love you, love you". She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews who felt a special connection with her. She will now join her parents Joachim and Ninette and her siblings Lucille Donahue (Mark), Simone Hartley (Herb), Charles Tessier (Ruth).
Marcelle enjoyed a long and happy life and will be remembered for her elegance and dignity. She was an avid golfer (Summerlea Golf), tennis player (Montreal Indoor), card player and bowler well into her 80's. She saw only the positive in everything that she did and in everyone that she met. She was an inspiration to all who were fortunate enough to meet her and accept her enormous generosity.
Heartfelt thanks to the Doctors & Staff at Maison Herron & The Lakeshore General Hospital for their care and kindness. Visitation 12:30 to 1:30PM followed by funeral service at St. Joachim Church, 2 rue Ste. Anne, Pointe Claire, Thursday January 17, 2013.
In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to the Lakeshore General Hospital or a charity of your choice.
