ANGELIQUE ANTAYA In loving memory of Angelique Antaya (nee Stella Valcourt) 77 years who passed away peacefully at the Regina Grace Hospice February 23, 2017. Angelique was born May 7, 1939 in St. Jean Baptiste, Manitoba. She was predeceased by her parents, Damien Valcourt and Exilda (nee Bacon) and her sister Rita Valcourt OMMI of St. Boniface. Adored mother of three sons she will be sadly missed by Henry Ross-Christensen (Reina), Paul Christensen (Darcie), and David Christensen; two beautiful grandchildren, Li and Yan Christensen. Also left to cherish her memory are her siblings, S. Bertha SNJM of St. Boniface, Andree Grise (late Bertrand) of Saskatoon, SK, Emerence Verrier (Louis) of Parksville, BC, Gisele Desautels (Edmond) of Missouri, Henriette Olivier (late Denis) of Winnipeg, MB, George Valcourt (Barbara) of Texas. After successfully completing a number of University courses Angelique travelled west. As a free spirit she was like a feather in the wind never settling at one place for too long. Angelique believed that education was to experience life at its fullest. Her travels took her to British Columbia, The Yukon, Alberta and Saskatchewan. Her many life experiences included columnist, restauranteur/baker (The Good Old Days and Angel's Place), ranch hand, library assistant, hotel housekeeper, type setter, and a pre-school educator. Angelique left us a lasting reminder of her spirituality with her publications, "Gentle Freedom", a book of poems and "Antayas Forest", a French story book for children. Angelique will be greatly missed by her many nieces, nephews, friends and by all who got to know her. Angelique's family are very grateful for the special care provided to her at the Regina Grace Hospice, and would like to extend a special thanks to the care givers and staff for their kindness and compassion. In lieu of flowers donations may be to the Regina Grace Hospice No. 50 Angus Road, Regina, SK S4R-8P6.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
I have fond memories of staying with Stella and her six sisters for eight months when their family lived on Bourgeault St. She was 4 years old then and was a live wire. Her being born the same date as my younger brother, we used to say they were twin cousins. Living with them was one of the highlights of my young life.
