ARSENAULT, Rollande Bégin
The Guest Book is expired.
1924 - 2013
Passed away February 26, 2013 after a long illness. Predeceased by her spouse of 49 years Ernest Arsenault, mother to Michel, Pierre, and Louise. Born in Montreal, daughter of Roland Bégin and Rose Lamontagne, she was the eldest of eight and is survived by two sisters, Aline and Thérèse. She was an intelligent woman, creative, an autodidact with an interest in many things. She was a seamstress of truly exceptional talent. With a natural elegance, she was equally at ease in well-worn jeans or dressed to the nines. She was a fabulous cook and always trying something new. She was a fighter, a free-spirit, avant-garde in many ways and had a great sense of fun. She loved to renovate her small home, did much herself and did it well. She was a caring woman with a willingness to help family and strangers alike. You will be greatly missed every day, Mom. May you finally find peace.Visitation on Sunday, March 10 from 1 to 5 p.m. and from 7 to 10 p.m. and Monday, March 11 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at Urgel Bourgie Funeral Complex 6700 Beaubien E. Church service will be at 11a.m. at Église Ste-Claire, 8615 Sainte-Claire St., Montreal. In lieu of flowers, a donation in her memory to the Alzheimer's Society, Heart and Stroke foundation (or a charitable organization of your choice) would be appreciated.
