Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • The last surviving child of an amazing family. I can still hear Aunt Angel’s voice telling us to come in from playing in the big yard in the back of the house for a snack or telling Celeste and Rachel we should play in the blue room (or the green room, I don’t remember the color). She remains in many of our childhood memories and for me especially in those magical summers in Redvers…I will remember here magical elegance and her poise. My sincere condolences to the Lajuenesse family for their loss. Greg (and Rose’s family) Le dernier enfant survivant d'une famille incroyable. Je peux encore entendre la voix de tante Angel nous dire de venir de la grande cour à l'arrière de la maison pour une collation ou dire à Celeste et Rachel que nous devrions jouer dans la salle bleue (ou la salle verte, je ne me souviens pas de la couleur) . Elle reste dans beaucoup de nos souvenirs d'enfance et pour moi surtout dans ces étés magiques à Redvers… Je me souviendrai ici de l'élégance magique et de son équilibre. Mes sincères condoléances à la famille Lajuenesse pour leur perte. Greg (et la famille de Rose Hélène) - Posted by: Greg Nielsen (Nephew) on: Apr 05, 2020

  • Carmen & Guy, Celeste, Rachelle & Cliff, Michelle & Robert, all the grandchildren and great grandchildren. Our sympathy to all of you. It is just so wonderful that we have such great memories to look back on. We were lucky enough to visit Uncle Joe and Auntie Angele in Las Vegas many years ago when mom and dad were there one winter. We had a hard time keeping up to them! Uncle Joe took Don golfing while we all went to some huge flea market! We always enjoyed our visits with Uncle Joe & Auntie Angele , always a wonderful meal and a good glass of wine. You did a beautiful job of looking after your mom and now she is with Uncle Joe. Lots of love, Brenda & Don - Posted by: Brenda Rach (Niece ) on: Apr 05, 2020

  • Mama was a great family facilitator for gatherings. She was always in the kitchen until all was put away. She had an infectious smile and shyness. She loved family and was not a big fan of any family disagreements. She invited every family member into her heart and was truly kind and loving to all her family. Miss you Mama and safe travels home. - Posted by: Cliff Yerex (Son-in-law) on: Apr 05, 2020
