  • Je me sens heureux d'avoir eu la chance de grandir, à La Rochelle, tout près de tante Irène. Quand je visitais sa maison, l'autre bord de la rue "main", je me sentais toujours chez nous. Je me souviens de son cri quand j'allais voler des pommes juteuses de ses deux pommiers. "Hé, laissez les là! Je veux n'avoir pour faire d'la jam!" Matante était toujours là pour m'accueillir et me partageait toujours de bonnes idées et mini-projets quand j'étais "bored". Pendant ses dernières années, j'ai eu la chance de la visiter, ici et là, quand je faisais me rondes à St-Malo. J'ai beaucoup apprécié de nos conversations et de ses mets, toujours frais. Bon repos, matante. Luc - Posted by: Luc Roy (/nephew ) on: Apr 25, 2022

  • Dear Hortense and Norbert Alairie and the Catellier family extending our deepest and heartfelt sympathy on the passing of Irene Catellier. So very sorry for your loss. Thinking of you all at this very sad and difficult time. Lynda Ruban staff and friends at the HSC Foundation - Posted by: Lynda Ruban (staff at Health Sciences Centre Foundation) on: Apr 22, 2022

  • To quote Maya Angelou, "A great soul serves everyone all the time. A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and again." Tante Irene is that great soul. She was always serving others through her knitting projects and advice, the hundreds of quilts she sewed for those afflicted with dementia, caring for Oncle Jacques and her girls and her beloved grandchildren. She was devoted to her friends, extended family, her community and her church. She will continue to bring us all together again and again. - Posted by: Suzette Roy (niece) on: Apr 21, 2022

  • My sincerest condolences to the Catellier family. I was married to her nephew, Luc Roy for many years and knew Irène through our marriage. She was a kind, loving person and will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her. Mes sympathies à la famille Catellier. Que Dieu la garde dans ses bras et vous donne confort. - Posted by: Jacinthe (Former aunt-in-law) on: Apr 21, 2022
