Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Grandma Alice was always warm, kind, and joyful. She was a wonderful Grandmother to me and my wife, and great-grandmother to Ava and Luc. Her visits with my Grandfather to Fisher Branch when I was growing up always filled us with excitement....we'd stare out the window waiting for the old VW to come down the gravel road. She always brought an interesting gift for us from Mexico, and would share really neat stories. Grandma genuinely took interest in what we had to say, and spent time engaging with us...always making us feel important. Visits later in life were not as often, but were always meaningful and memorable. Grandma was always excited to see us as well. She had a sharp memory, and we welcomed when she would share with us her life experiences. We feel fortunate to have an awesome visit with her back in October....and a great family pic to go with it. Rest in peace Grandma....we love you. - Posted by: Dan, Kim, Ava, and Luc Bernier (Grandson) on: Jul 10, 2022
Our heartfelt sympathy and love to the Douville family. I’m so happy I was able to speak with Rosalie on her birthday. I’ll miss our visits over Mexican coffee (& other things/😏) and her wonderful stories about family, travel and all the antics her, Joe, Mom & Dad used to get up to. She was like a second Grandma to Landon, after Mom passed and he still raves about her delicious crepes, devil eggs and home made fries. Rest peacefully Rosalie and give our love to your best friend, my Mom. God has certainly gained an kind and loving angel in you. Love you forever, Merrill, Simon and Landon XO - Posted by: Romana Family (Long time family friends ) on: Jun 19, 2022
