Lucy was a beautiful human being. She was a faithful volunteer for the Meals on Wheels program. I used to meet her every Sunday at St. Mary Church and after Mass we would walk through the parking lot together. This gave us a chance to catch up and stay in touch. Always smiling and always so pleasant. RIP Lucy. Prayers will be said for you and your family.

Our condolences to Diane and Roland and your entire family. Your mother was such a sweet, kind and gentle lady - will be greatly missed. Always remember her at McDonald gatherings and her yummy caramel squares she always had plenty of, the recipe of which I was fortunate to get from her years ago.

To Dianne and Roland my deepest sympathy. Your Mother had a heart of gold and a kindness to everyone she came in contact with that we do not see enough of these days. I will always remember the times that she would have me over for a good bowl of chicken fricot. Heaven has received an Angel

My deepest sympathy to you all. We are unable to attend the service, but please know that we are with you in thoughts and prayers.

Some of my best memories are with ma tante Lucie. I will always remember her heart of gold, her beautiful smile and her adventurous spirit. During her vacation to New Brunswick, she would reserve time with all the family and especially with all her nephews and nieces. Everyone would receive a gift from her that was purchase with us in mind and especially given with love. I still have all my Christmas decorations that she has given me and every year it is with joy that i place them in my tree for everyone to enjoy.

Ma tante Lucie, you will be missed by us all.

Here are a few pictures from People in New Brunswick that would love to be there with you.

Diane and Roland. I am so sorry for your loss. Ma tante was a wonderful person and will be dearly missed. She was an amazing woman who loved life and loved people. Danny is right - Heaven has gained an angel. Love Albert

When I think of my aunt Lucie, my heart fills with so much love.
She made the world a better place. Lucie was love, kindness, gentleness, laughter and patience.

She had the biggest heart. She always loved people just the way they were and had a knack for bringing people together. She made the simplest things so much fun. My best memories growing up are about spending time with Ma Tante Lucie.

Her deep love of life, of new adventures and of her family made her such a beautiful person. She continues to inspire me to laugh a little more, live a little more boldly and love a little bit bigger. I’m so thankful for having had her in my life.
