BLANCHE ALEXINE LUCIE SOUQUE (nee GAUTRON) January 5, 1925 - November 6, 2018 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother and great-grandmother on November 6, 2018 at the age of 93 at the St. Claude Pavilion. Blanche is survived by her three children, Louis (Lucille), Yvonne (Ron), Marie (Jim); six grandchildren, Paul, Marc (Dena), Nicole (Aaron), Janine (Phil), Luc (Emily) and Chanelle; six great-grandchildren, Colin, Noah, Sarah, Emily, Keira and Wade; step-children, step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her husbands, George Souque, Auguste Souque, and Charles Bourgeois; her daughter Georgette in infancy; her parents, Ernest and Bernadette (nee Lagimodière) Gautron; and her siblings Alice (Gaston), Leo (Hortense), Luc (Denise), Charles, Helene, Raymond (Betty) and Marcel. Blanche was born in Haywood and lived there her whole life, first on a dairy farm and then retiring to the town of Haywood. She was involved with the community and enjoyed helping with the church, the hall and visiting patients in hospital. She truly had a love of her community. The funeral mass will be celebrated at the Haywood Roman Catholic Church on Tuesday, November 13, 2018, with Father Armand LeGal officiating. Music will begin at 1:30 p.m. with the mass to follow at 2:00 p.m. A private family interment will follow in the Parish Cemetery.
