Lea was a woman who sustained her joy. She was never lost and always sure in her path of life. She knew who she was and recognized the power she had to persevere all the storms of life. Instead of fighting them, she danced through them with her strong faith in God. Sadly, we her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, sisters Cecile, Jean, Evelyn and Simone, brother Oliver and friends are now all left to grieve her unmeasurable and noticeable absence.
Lea's compelling kindness and thoughtfulness towards others will never be forgotten. A woman of strength and courage she was. Faith was her armor, but Jesus was her victory.
"Mom we will miss you, thank you for all you've done for us, you will always be remembered and commemorated by us." Love, your children, Aurele (Diane), Suzanne, Paul, Alain (Rene).
"Grandma (Memere) I love you more than you can imagine. Thank you for the memories I have of you to hold onto. Your face will always shine in my heart when I think of you." Love, Chantal (Dave), Ryan (Alyssa), Anthony (Krystal), Felice (Ainsley), Patrick (Krystele), Liane (Jamal), Christophe.
Great-Grandma Lea, so great we had a chance to get to know you and spend time with you. We loved our family gatherings with you. We will never forget you. Love, Yuri and Lev.
"Grand Memere (Great-Grandma), we met only briefly. And being so little right now, we will likely not remember. But our parents and grandparents will make sure we know you, your life, and the honouring heritage you are leaving behind for us."
Love and teddy bear hugs, Eric, Sophie, Alessio and Isabel.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present, nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
I want to wish all the family my deepest condolences on the passing of their mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, etc. My prayers are with all of you. - Posted by: Noel Marcel Meilleur (Nephew ) on: Oct 17, 2021
I first met Lea when I was 10 years old. Lea was the first in-law in our family. My brother Leo who was a decade older than I, brought her home to introduce her to the family. I was quite impressed with this new person being integrated into our family life. My realization of her kind heart and generous personality was immediate as well as her many natural skills and talents. Léa was always ready to learn new things and so willing to share whatever knowledge she possessed with others. Her ready smile and laughter was contagious, always so welcoming to all who visited her home. I will miss her zeal and joy for life and I am grateful that I shared many years of her life! - Posted by: Adelard Gendron (Brother-in-law ) on: Oct 16, 2021
