It is with great sadness that the family of Emilien Lussier announces his passing on June 19, 2021 at the Victoria Hospital at the age of 99.
He will be greatly missed by his daughters, Paulette and Lorraine; daughter-in-law Elaine; grandchildren, Wendy and Darryl, Michelle (Blair), and Dennis (Karen); great- grandchildren, Rayna, Lindsay, Axel and Hendrix. Emilien was predeceased by his wife Jeannette (nee Bessette), and son Gerald.
Emilien lived on the farm all his life. He farmed with his son for numerous years up until his retirement in 2001, where he then moved to Winnipeg. Besides farming, Emilien had a long resume of side jobs. He drove the school bus for the Boundary School Division, served many years as a counselor for the RM of DeSalaberry, board member for the Morris General Hospital, sold Co-op Hail insurance and was a Driver's Ed Instructor. He enjoyed going on crop tours, visiting with friends, meeting new people and learning new languages. He was always known as a jokester, and being the life of the party.
In his later years, Emilien and Jeannette became snowbirds and travelled to Florida, Texas, and Arizona where they would meet up with old friends. He enjoyed his time with his family and friends.
Prayers and graveside service will be held at Green Acres Funeral Home and Cemetery. Covid restrictions will apply. Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
