Mom and Dad were married in Youbou, B.C. on January 27,1942. They later returned to Notre Dame de Lourdes to raise their family on the farm. After Dad's passing, Mom worked as a hairdresser and later as a nurse's aide at the Foyer Notre Dame. In retirement, Mom enjoyed several hobbies: playing cards with her friends, knitting afghans and reading. She faced her illness admirably with much courage which served as an inspiration to all who knew her.
The family would like to thank the exceptional staff at the Notre Dame Hospital for the compassionate care that Mom received.
Germaine Dupasquier's funeral will be held on Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 2 p.m., in the Notre Dame Roman Catholic Church, in Notre Dame de Lourdes, Manitoba, with Father Léon Mubikayi officiating.
