LUCILLE (LUCY) NEUFELD (nee CHOUINARD) October 11, 1948 - February 5, 2019 It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Lucy, our dear wife, mom and grandma at the age of 70 years. Lucy passed away after a courageous battle with cancer at Riverview Health Centre. She remained strong and beautiful to the very end. She is lovingly remembered by her husband Stan; children, Cathy (James) and Michael; grandchildren, Breanne (Braden) and Travis; sisters, Alice, Cécile, Eva (Raymond) and Adeline (Jim); brothers, Denis (Doreen), Victor (Cecilia), Lucien, and numerous nephews, nieces and friends. She was predeceased by her parents, Albert and Alexia Chouinard, and sisters, Annette and Thérèse. She had a fiery spirit balanced with a strong Catholic faith. She had an overwhelmingly huge heart and cared for all living creatures. Her passions were gardening, travelling the world, in particular Costa Rica, and watching her favourite sport teams such as the Goldeyes, Jets, Bombers and Cowboys. Especially Tony Romo, whose ambition she valued which was to strive to get better every day. Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, February 15, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. in Our Lady of Victory Roman Catholic Church, 249 Arnold Avenue at Osborne Street. The family wishes to extend an abundance of gratitude to the many health care teams that cared for her during her five month battle.

Condolences & Memories (10 entries)

  • I was given a gift at birth, you as my godmother. You were with me for every big event, full of love and postive thoughts, even being so far away. You will always be in my heart and forever grateful for all you taught me. Your sand dollar has broken, take the wings and fly to be the shining star that I will see in the night. I will always love you. - Posted by: Charlene Fletcher (Goddaughter) on: Feb 20, 2019

  • Stan, Cathy, Michael, Breanne and Travis, I am so sorry for your loss. Lucy was a lovely woman inside and out. We will all miss her. Lynn. Lucy. "I held you close in my heart today. It made me feel complete; You may have died but you are not gone. You will always be a part of me." Author unknown - Posted by: Lynn (Friend) on: Feb 15, 2019

  • We are all very sad to hear of Auntie Lucy’s passing, yet find peace in knowing she is no longer suffering. We had so many great memories with her and Uncle Stan that we will forever cherish. Our family had the pleasure of meeting up with Unlce Stan and Auntie Lucy in Florida for a couple days a few years back. We had so much fun going to SeaWorld, relaxing on the beach, and of course eating amazing, cheesey, homemade macaroni and cheese made by Auntie Lucy. It was always a joy when they would come to B.C. to visit. We are sending our love and prayers to you Uncle Stan, and we hope we can see you sometime soon. We will always miss Auntie Lucy and will keep all of these memories with her in our heart. - Posted by: Cynthia, Marissa, Marlee, Maddie and Kaden (Family ) on: Feb 15, 2019

  • Stan, it is with a heavy heart that I send condolences on the passing of your dear Lucy. We are in Florida at the moment, and so will not be able to attend the church service. Please know that my wife and I will be thinking of you.... - Posted by: Bob White (Friend) on: Feb 13, 2019

  • Miles apart does not change a true friendship. We shared 60 years of this friendship even though I moved away at the young age of 19. We had adventures together that will always be there to look back on thanks to all her pictures. Her camera went everywhere with her. We always celebrated those "big" bdays together. She loved always saying to me "but you're still older". So I let her have those 5 months of being younger. It never got old listening to her say that. She will be irreplaceable to me. She loved life to the fullest, her gardening skills were amazing and she taught me so much about that. She was a big part of my family. Godmother to my daughter and loved so much by all my kids and grandkids. She was their Aunty Lucy. Her visits here were always full of fun and laughter, big family dinners where we tested Stan's bbq skills. When my husband and her friend, Al, passed away, she was here for me to help me through my own grieving process. When a close friend unexpectedly leaves us, a piece of our heart is forever broken. That friend is the one who never leaves your heart, even if she leaves your life for a while. She was the type of friend that even after years apart, we picked up where we left off, and even if she is now gone she will always be in my memories. Those we love and lose are always connected by heartstrings into infinity. My heart goes out to all of you, Stan, Cathy, Mike and her grandkids, Breanne and Travis. We are all heartbroken by the tremendous loss of this wonderful woman. I will forever miss her and our FaceTime tradition. It's hard to grasp that I will never get to see or talk to her again. Technology has left us with so much to cherish of her. I know, Lucy, that you and Al are up there looking out after us now. A broken heart from each of my kids, grandkids and myself. ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”love always, Doreen - Posted by: Doreen Selly (Best friend) on: Feb 12, 2019

  • I had the pleasure of meeting Lucy a few years ago through the Condo building she and Stan moved into. Lucy quickly fit right in meeting folks and greeting them with her smile and infectious laugh. I loved her openness and honesty. My mother always said "be careful who writes in your book of life" and I am very grateful that Lucy wrote in mine. I will miss our chats and seeing her around the building, especially in the garden area where she helped to care for our beautiful gardens. I am going to deeply miss her. My heartfelt condolences to the friends and family for your loss of the beautiful person Lucy was. - Posted by: Deborah Cole (Neighbour) on: Feb 10, 2019

  • It is times like this that we are forced, in an unnatural way, to reflect on what a persons life has meant, not to just you, but to all the people they have touched in their lives. My Aunt was a person who could make you believe that every direction you were going was the right one. The one that was meant for you not the one somebody else decided for you. It is hard to speak of her in the past tense, she is still so present and I’m sure will always be. She will be carried in our hearts and taken on every adventure to all the places she had yet to see and the one’s she held close to her heart. Her love for her family and her life cannot be measured here. There are no words to describe the loss we all feel and the reason that she was taken from us at this time. She was comforted, when at the passing of our dear Aunt Terry, she could imagine she was again with other people she loved, her mother and father, her sister Annette, Auntie Cookie and of course my dear mother Denise. I am trying to find comfort in the fact that she now is there too. Michael and Cathy, my heart is with you. I know how you are feeling and in time this sorrow will soften at the edges and become not less but bearable. It is hard to believe but it will I promise you that and send my love to you all. Stan, you made my aunt so happy and your sadness must be so great. I hope you find some comfort in your memories and eventually they bring you some peace. The writer, C.S Lewis, once said, “We can’t have the happiness of yesterday without the pain of today. That is the deal”. Thank you for being so kind and for being so full of life Aunt Lucille you are forever in our hearts and our memories. - Posted by: Kathy (Niece ) on: Feb 08, 2019

  • So sorry for your loss. Your Mom was so full of life and beautiful smile. - Posted by: Gisele & Rene Beaulieu (Niece) on: Feb 07, 2019

  • Hi everyone, I am so sorry for your loss. I am so happy that I was able to see her twice in the last month. I will miss her deeply, especially her sense of humour and laugh. Hugs to you all. Shari Saucier - Posted by: Shari Saucier (Niece) on: Feb 06, 2019
