It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother Simone Carreau on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 in her 95th year. Predeceased by her husband Marcel Carreau and her son Normand Carreau. Her patient, loving, and caring nature for her family was deeply rooted in her faith. She will be greatly missed by her children; Gatean (Mary Lou), Bertrand (Gail), Carol McRae (Bill), Michel (Aline), Daniel (Susan), Solange James (Jeff), George (Sandy), and Christine Caporicci (Joe), and her 21 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren. When Simone wasn't tending to her rose gardens, or making bread, she became an avid quilter. Quilting was a pastime that enabled her to explore her creativity and love of pattern and colour. She shared this love in over 150 quilts for her family. These quilts will warm our homes and hearts for years to come. Throughout her life she was the thread that held together those around her. She leaves behind a tapestry rich with love, family, creativity, and the best recipe for bread. Special thanks to; the palliative care team, especially nurses Margret & Jade, as well as the staff at St. Charles Village for going above and beyond. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to WELLAND FUNERAL HOME. As an expression of sympathy, donations to the Alzheimer Society or Hospice Niagara will be appreciated by the family.

To the entire Carreau family, Sheila, our girls, and I are so sorry for your loss. I have nothing but great memories of your Mom. She was clearly made of very strong DNA, which all of you possess as well, to have worked so hard throughout her life and to have lived for such a long time. Walking into ma Tante Simone's house with the smell of freshly baked bread wafting everywhere is a great memory I have of her. I also enjoyed it when she would tour me through her garden and tell me about the various plants. I miss all of you (Gaetan, Bertrand, Carole, Normand, Michel, Daniel, Solange, George, and Christine) and wish you all the best.

Mrs Carreau was a wonderful person. She had so much love for her family and anyone who came to her home. I remember many sleepovers at her family home, enjoyed her meals served in her downstairs kitchen with her family. She had made me some barbie outfits from her fabric scraps she was extremely gifted and made beautiful creations. She had the most beautiful smile and personality. She will certainly be missed by all who knew her. My family sends their deepest condolences to all of her family. Know though you will remember all the laughs in the downstairs kitchen, so many shared meals, all the skills she passed on for a lifetime and her infectious beautiful smile. My memories are certainly cherished and beautiful and i will have always. Xoxo
