Obituary

Nous regrettons annoncer le décès de Rachel Tremblay à l’âge de 83 ans, le mardi 1er mars 2022, à l’hôpital Montfort d’Ottawa. Elle était l’épouse de Georges Tremblay et la fille de feu Charles-Edouard Tousignant et de feu Marie-Louise (Pelletier).

Elle laisse ses enfants : Jacques (feu Jeanie O’Rourke) d’Ottawa ON, Martine (Dave Finn) de Carbonnear TN, Jocelyne (Donald Desbiens) de Wendover ON et Pierre (Diane) de Rockland ON.

Ses petits-enfants : Danny Desbiens (Darcy) de Rockland ON, Louanne Desbiens (Alexandre Bouchard) de Gatineau QC, Jeffrey Tremblay (Jessica Barr) d’Ottawa ON et Sophie Tremblay (Talia Losier) de Gatineau QC. Ses arrière-petits-enfants : Émeric, Joah et Audrée Desbiens de Rockland ON. Elle laisse ses frères : Normand (Lucille) de Kapuskasing ON, Aldéi (Louisette) et Yvon (Hélène). Elle laisse également deux belles-soeurs et un beau-frère : Cécile (feu Valérien Gaulin) d’Ottawa ON, Ceddy Plamondon (Donald Labelle) de Kapuskasing ON, Eddy Tremblay (Carole Lavoie) de Moonbeam ON.

“Rachel a vécu la plus grande partie de sa vie dans le nord de l’Ontario dans un beau et petit village nommé Moonbeam, c’était sa mère patrie. C’est là qu’elle a développé et transmis toutes ses belles et grandes valeurs de vie.  Elle s’y est mariée, a élevé ses enfants, partagé d’innombrables rencontres familiales et valorisé de véritables amitiés. Elle était fière de faire partie de la paroisse Nativité-de-Marie et d’appartenir à l’Ordre des Filles d’Isabelle de Moonbeam.  Elle était reconnue en tant qu’excellente cuisinière autant auprès des siens que dans les banquets de la paroisse. Et, finalement, elle s’est dévouée au bien-être des gens vulnérables comme préposée aux soins au foyer de soins de longue durée Extendicare de Kapuskasing.

Elle a aimé passer ses étés au camping de la Baie Ouellette de Moonbeam entourée des membres de sa famille et de ses amis. En 2004, elle s’est établie à Rockland afin d’être auprès de ses enfants. Elle aimait recevoir, donner, rire et partager tous les petits bonheurs de tout un chacun ainsi que leurs peines et chagrins. Elle adorait lire, écouter ses téléromans, jouer aux cartes et partager une bonne bouffe en bonne compagnie. Sa porte a toujours été ouverte et invitante. Ses bons voisins de Rockland pourraient certainement en témoigner. Sa présence, son énergie débordante et sa belle humeur nous manqueront à tous et toutes.”

Des dons à la Société de l’Arthrite de l’Ontario peuvent être faits.

“Rachel lived most of her life in Northern Ontario in a beautiful little village called Moonbeam, it was her home town. It was there that she developed and passed on all her great and beautiful life values.  There she married, raised her children, shared countless family gatherings and valued true friendships. She was proud to be a part of Nativity of Mary Parish and to belong to the Order of the Daughters of Isabella of Moonbeam.  She was known as an excellent cook both with her family and at parish banquets. And finally, she dedicated herself to the well-being of the vulnerable as an attendant at the Extendicare Long Term Care Home in Kapuskasing.

She enjoyed spending her summers at Ouellette Bay Campground in Moonbeam surrounded by family and friends. In 2004, she moved to Rockland to be with her children. She loved to receive, give, laugh and share everyone’s little joys as well as their sorrows and pains. She loved to read, listen to her soap operas, play cards and share good food in good company. Her door was always open and inviting. Her good neighbors in Rockland could certainly attest to this. We will all miss his presence, his boundless energy and his good humor.” Donations to the Arthritis Society of Ontario can be made.
