It is with profound sadness that we announce that Carole Lachance passed away peacefully, with her family by her side, on January 18, 2023.
She will be remembered by her sons, Hubert (Arlene), Danys (Stéphanie), her daughters, Nicole (Colan) and Guylaine (Mike); her grandchildren, Joanna, Kamryn, Alix, Carter, Véronique, Eve, Alexi, and Mia; her brother Ulysses; her sister Ilène; her dear friend Marcel Fraser; along with numerous other friends and family. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 43 years, Roger Lachance; her parents, Alexandre and Auréa Desrochers; her sisters, Léona and Brigitte and her brothers, Don and Hubert.
Carole attended Baie St. Paul East School, Ecole St. Eustache, and St. Joseph's Academy for her elementary education. She then pursued her studies at St. François Xavier High School where she graduated in 1961. Carole spent her summers at the farm being very busy with the various gardening chores, milking cows, haying and hauling bales.
Throughout her busy life, Carole held various jobs and professions, with the highlight being when she became a nursery schoolteacher in 1986. For over 17 years, she helped shape young minds at many different schools, including her own nursery school at St. Germain. Her love of working with children continued as an Education assistant for eight more years.
A funeral service will be held at St. Timothy Parish on Friday, January 27 at 1:30 p.m., 77 John Forsyth Rd.
The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff at the Grace Hospital for their care and compassion.
