THERESE JOHNSON
(nee DESCORCY)
November 15, 1929 - February 1, 2021

It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Therese Johnson, at the age of 91 years on Monday, February 1, 2021, at Villa Youville, Ste-Anne, MB.
Therese was predeceased by her loving husband, Raymond in 2000, her parents, seven siblings, her grandson Rheal, daughter-in-law Heather and her great grandson Aiden.
Left to mourn her passing and cherish wonderful memories of her are her loving children, Roland (Suzanne), Marcel, Dianne (Adrien) Jolicoeur, Suzanne (Hubert) Gagnon, Charles (Murielle), Anita (Gilles) Tetrault, Eugene (Maria), Louise (Roland) Massicotte. Also 21 grandchildren, 41 great-grandchildren, along with two brothers-in-law and five sisters-in-law.
Mom will forever be known for her quiet strength, deep faith and wisdom, which will be a source of inspiration and guidance for many years to cherish. Mom was also recognized for her wonderful smile, she was known for her endearing dimples. Mom took great pleasure in acknowledging her family, they spent countless days and evenings playing cards with family and friends. There was never a moment that went by that Therese wasn't thinking about someone else, especially her children and family.
A sincere thank you to the staff at Villa Youville who were able to care for her needs. Soeur Irene Rioux for prayers and visits. We would also like to thank Father Kevin for giving mom her last sacrament.

We love you dearly and will always
carry with us the great memories.
Until we meet again.

In keeping with mom's wishes, cremation has taken place and due to restrictions on public gatherings a private service will be held.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • All of my childhood in Lorette was spent across the street from Mme Johnson. Mother to one of my best friends, Louise, and neighbour for 18 years. I will always cherish the times I spent in her kitchen enjoying her kindness and laughter. She was a wise and gentle soul. Always ready to hand out great advice to Louise and I, especially with matters of the heart. In later years, as an adult, I enjoyed visiting her at Villa Youville, hatting, doing puzzles together and enjoying great memories. Rest in peace Mme Johnson. Say hi to Mom for me. We will meet again. Love Dolo. xoxoxo - Posted by: Dolorès Tétreault Patenaude (neighbour and life long friend) on: Feb 13, 2021
