April 10, 1931 - September 5, 2022

Clémence Himbeault died peacefully on September 5, 2022, at Actionmarguerite Saint-Boniface at the age of 91.
Clémence is survived by her husband Laurent, her children, René, Raymond (Kathy), Donald (Gisèle) and Dianne, her grandchildren, Danielle, Eric (Lauren), Alain, Dylan (Mara), Jackson and Gibson as well as her great-grandchildren, Evan and Alison. She also leaves to mourn her brothers and sisters, Thérèse, Gualbert (Rita), Denis (Eliane), Antonin (Rose), Emma (Maurice Gaudet) as well as her sisters-in-law Adeline and Stella and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents, Wilfrid Gualbert and Maria (née Fournier) as well as her brother Paul, her brother-in-law John, and her sisters-in-law, Flora (Laurent LaLiberté) and Martha.
Clémence was born in Somerset, Manitoba and moved with her family to La Broquerie in 1939 where she attended and graduated from Ecole St. Joachim. After teaching for a few years in St. Anne, St. Geneviève and La Broquerie, she took the path to adventure to teach in the small village of Boggy Creek in the northwest part of the province. It was there that she met Laurent and they were married on August 12, 1953. Shortly after beginning their married life in San Clara they moved to Winnipeg where they raised their family. Clémence worked for several years at the St-Boniface Library in the children's section where her favourite activity was to delight the children with new stories during story hour, an activity that she was able to continue with her own grandchildren after her retirement. During their retirement Laurent and Clémence also travelled extensively, road trips throughout the United States and Canada as well as overseas trips, including a visit to the Holy Land and the Vatican. A devoted Christian, Clémence has also lent a hand to the Catholic Women's League and the Club Eclipse.
The family would like to sincerely thank the staff at Actionmarguerite-Saint-Boniface for their exceptional care over the past few years.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • J'ai travaillé avec Clémence à la bibliothèque de St-Boniface, entre 1979 et 1982. Clémence était timide mais elle avait une timidité rayonnante et toujours souriante. Et je me rappellerai toujours sa fierté quand son époux, Laurent, ou ses enfants, Donald et Diane, venaient la chercher après le travail.

  • Mes sincères sympathies à toute la famille. Que les beaux souvenirs vous aident à passer cette grande perte. - Posted by: Lorraine Tetrault (amie) on: Sep 10, 2022
