SISTER JULIETTE ROBIDOUX OSU

Very peacefully on November 6, 2020, at Actionmarguerite (St. Boniface) at the age of 100 years old, Sister Juliette was received into the hands of her loving Lord. Sister Juliette was accompanied in spirit by her Ursuline Community: Sister Mary DePape and Sister Joice Richards.
Sister Juliette was born on November 3, 1920 in Bruxelles, Manitoba and was predeceased by her parents, Fortunat and Aurore (Dubuc) Robidoux; and her four siblings, Hector (Denise), Hubert (Thérèse), Benoit (Georgette) (Lucille) and Marie Rose.
Juliette was a loving and loveable lady who had a happy, cheerful greeting for everyone. She was an enthusiastic and effective classroom teacher and taught some 18 years in Bruxelles and then 17 years at Our Lady of Victory School in Winnipeg. Her teaching career was interrupted by her being nominated as Provincial Superior of her community. After her years of teaching, Juliette lovingly took care of her mother who died at 94 years.
Sister Juliette's love for God was beautiful, simple but strong. When visiting her at Actionmarguerite during very touching spontaneous moments, Juliette would quickly fold her hands, close her eyes and pray out loud the prayers of St. Irenaeus "The Glory of God is man fully alive". Sister Juliette was also known to have said, "That she was grateful to God and to her community for all the benefits and graces that had been given to her throughout her life".
Sister Juliette would like to be forever remembered for the compassionate services of the competent dedicated staff at Residence Despins and Actionmarguerite and in gratitude to the Grey Nuns community for their compassionate presence.
The funeral liturgy will be held on Friday, November 13, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. at Residence Despins. Father Isaïe Blanchette OMI will preside at the liturgy celebration.
Because of COVID restrictions only invited guests will be able to attend.

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to attend Ste. Marie School for my entire 12 years of education. Sr. Juliette along with her Sisters made school a second home. They saw us as their own children and taught us academic course work through the lens of the Catholic faith, providing us with such a great foundation. I would not be the person I am without them. Thank you Sr. Juliette for all you did for me. I will continue to see you as my guide and teacher for the remainder of my life. Rest well. - Posted by: Luella Jonk (Student) on: Nov 14, 2020

  • I have such wonderful memories of Sr. Juliette, my Grade 3 &4 teacher. She had an open and caring spirit, always there to listen to you. She taught us to believe in ourselves and to stay true to who we are. Sr. Juliette was always willing to help, especially when it came time to pull out those loose, stubborn baby teeth. I will remember her fondly as one of my childhood heroines. - Posted by: Lia Jonk-Anderson (past student) on: Nov 11, 2020

  • Though Sister Juliette was not one of my homeroom teachers, I remember her as a teacher of my younger siblings in Swan Lake elementary school. I always thought she was one of the nicest Sisters, who showed kindness and who did not instill fear. Sister had such a nice demeanor and she really wanted children to do their best. She served her students and God well. My condolences to her faith community and to her family. - Posted by: Christine Kist (Van Cauwenberghe) (former student ) on: Nov 11, 2020

  • Dear Sisters, I would like to offer my sincere sympathies for your loss! She was a very beautiful person and I'm sure she will be missed. I pray with you for the repose of her soul. I will be with you on-line on the 13th! Thank you for making this possible! Special hug for Sr Mary De-Pape! - Posted by: Jeannine Vermette snjm (friend) on: Nov 10, 2020

  • I am deeply saddened to hear of Sister Juliette's passing. She was a wonderful person who radiated gentleness, kindness, peace and love. We shared a friendship for many years and Sister Juliette touched my heart and my life in a meaningful way. In her honour, my eldest daughter was given her middle name, "Juliette" . On behalf of my parents, Malcolm & Gwen, my bother Carl and my daughter's Kaylene & Leanne, we offer our sincere condolences to the Ursuline Sisters and Sister Juliette's family. May the Lord grant you strength and comfort during this difficult time. Sending each of you all our love! - Posted by: Crysal Taylor (Friend) on: Nov 10, 2020

  • In August 1982, the Ursuline Sisters in Bruxelles offered space for the founding of what was then Westmount High School, of which I was the founding principal. Sisters Mary, Joan, and Juliet provided unstinting assistance in ensuring that the school's founding went smoothly. Then, over the three years (1982 to 1985) when I was at Westmount, they continued to be valued and supportive colleagues. They were among the most caring and inspiring elementary teachers with whom I ever had the privilege of working. As for Sister Juliette, Tennyson says it best, "[Herself] not least, but honour'd of them all." We are all richer for her presence among us, and poorer for her departure from this mortal coil. - Posted by: Keith Bricknell (Colleague) on: Nov 10, 2020
