She leaves behind her loving family: Daughter Louise (Charles Mainville) and children Nathalie, Josée and Geneviève, her son Denis (Diane) and his sons' Patrick and Sylvain, her daughter Lynne (Gilles Carrière) and children Zachary and Xavier, her son André (Tammy) and children Tyler, Justin and Cody, her son- in-law Michel St-Jean (Winnipeg) and sons Daniel, Éric and Marc and her daughter-in-law Marina (Edmonton) and children Stéphane, Christian and Jourdan, as well as eight great- grandchildren and one more soon to be born on maman's birthday. Maman was born on the 28th of May, 1929 to the late Jeanne (née Clément) and Albéni Diotte and has joined her sister Simone (Maurice O'Leary) and her brothers Vincent (Jeannine), Jean-Paul and Richard.

Our mother was a tender and caring woman who loved to laugh and joke. She cherished greatly her family. Maman nous laisse avec un héritage de mémoires et d'histoires; une femme qui savait rassembler les gens autour d'elle. Tu vas nous manquer énormément. Donations can be made in her name to the .
