MONIQUE DANEAULT (née SABOURIN) February 6, 1957 - February 11, 2019 With her strong spirit intact to the very end, on Monday, February 11, 2019, Monique (nee Sabourin) Daneault of St. Jean Baptiste, Manitoba succumbed to her long and courageous battle with cancer at Boundary Trails Health Centre. She is survived by her spouse Dave Chassie, son Martin, daughter Joelene (Jeff) Hildebrandt, grandchildren, Colin and Marco, her stepson Dylan (Nicole) Chassie, and step-grandchildren Marshall, Jett and Ayla. Monique is also survived by her very special and only sister Colette (Jacques) Dorge; her five brothers, Gilbert (Yvette), Richard (Elaine), Philippe (Monique), Roger (Lynne), Aime (Nancy), and numerous nephews and nieces. She maintained a special bond with her brother-in-law Perry Daneault (Claire), and her nephews. She also leaves her in-laws from Keewatin, Ontario; Emile (Papa) and Gail (Nan) Chassie, brothers-in-law Victor (Louise), Larry (Dee) and their families. Our beautiful Monique was predeceased by her husband Jacques (Dino) Daneault in 1988, her parents, Louis and Annette Sabourin, and her mother-in-law Alma Daneault. She was born and raised on the family farm, Sabourin Seed Service, in St. Jean Baptiste, Manitoba. Having been a young 4-H member, she developed her love and passion for gardening. In 1975, she married her high school sweetheart, Dino. Shortly after, she was employed by her brother Richard and sister-in-law Elaine at Roy Legumex Inc. for 37 years. Her devotion to the company was much appreciated by all. In 1989, she met Dave on Lake of the Woods and began their relationship. For the following decade, they devoted their lives to the kids' sports interests, but also enjoyed snowmobiling and curling with friends. Once the nest was empty, they focused on their passion for golf, enjoying it from coast to coast. Monique and her sister Colette maintained a very affectionate and loving bond. They shared and communicated daily. Having a special relationship with each of her brothers, she loved to go fishing, camping, and travelling with them. She kept in touch with all, planned and organized gatherings. In 2005, Monique was diagnosed with breast cancer. Being the fighter that she is, she battled it for two and a half years and, thankfully, was in remission. In the fall of 2013, Monique retired in time for the arrival of her first grandchild, Colin. She had found her new calling and he was her pride and joy. Marco was born three years later. She spent many days walking, biking, gardening, cooking, grandparenting and doting on her grandchildren. Her devotion to her parish and community was always noticed. Mom, your love and devotion to our family was always your priority. We promise to continue the traditions you instilled in us. Your smile and joie de vivre will live through us all. Heaven has gained the most beautiful angel. The funeral service will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. with a eulogy at 1:30 p.m. at the St. Jean Baptiste Catholic Church, officiated by Father Marcel Toupin. A private interment will be held at a later date. We would like to thank all family members and friends, too numerous to name, for their support throughout Monique's lifelong journey. A special thank you to Dr. Woelk, the CancerCare and Medical units at Boundary Trails Health Centre. Their compassion and devotion to their profession was remarkable. In Monique's memory, donations may be made to Boundary Trails Palliative Care department and Katie's Cottage. Arrangements Entrusted to: Morris Funeral Home 204-746-2451

  • Nous sommes Désolés d'apprendre le décès de Monique. Toujours souriante lorsque nous l'avons connue en 1988. Nous avions la garderie Monique (Séguin-Sirois) ou Jolène et Martin venais quand Monique travaillait...Jolène toute petite passait ses jounées avec nous. Martin qui était un peu plus vieux, fréquantait l'école primaire, venait chez nous avant et après l'école et pour les diners. En plus de venir à notre garderie vous étiez tous, Dave inclus, des amis de la famille. On se voyaient socialement (curling obligatoire inclus ou Monique (Daneault) a apris à Monique (Séguin-Sirois) à jouer). Votre mère Monique comme tant d'autre nous a vite adopté comme résidents à part entière de cette belle petit comunauté chaleureuse. Nous nous sommes senti bienvenues et entre amis avec elle. Malheureusement nous dure partir pour revenir près de notre famille dans l'est de l'Ontario après quelques années. Nous avons gardé de très bon souvenir de Monique et sommes attristé de la savoir parti trop vite. C'est une drôle de coincidence que Monique et moi avons parlé de vous incluant Monique votre mère la semaine passé et encore ces derniers jours. C'est pourquoi nous avons décidé de faire des recherches aujourd'hui sur facebook pour vous rejoindre et que nous avons appris cette triste nouvelle. Sachez que le sourire contagieux de Monique restera longtemps en mémoire bien en dehors de votre communauté et des frontières du Manitoba.

  • I'm proud to say I met Monique when doing work at Legumex for SGS. I knew at the time that she was a friend of my daughter-in-law, Kayla de Moissac. When I saw her picture, it was not difficult to remember Monique's friendly smile and personality. Monique is living proof that people like her do not leave this life without leaving a permanent place in our hearts. I have no doubt she is in a better place now. Sincerely, my condolences.
