On Tuesday, May 12, 2020, God knocked on Mom’s door. He offered her a reunion with Dad, her daughters and family members she hasn’t seen for a while. They were eagerly waiting her arrival and longing to laugh with her. God told her she would also have a great big beautiful garden. When she agreed, the blessed Virgin was there to greet her and to present her soul to our God.
She will be deeply missed for her sense of humour, her caring and her joie de vivre.
Left to mourn her departure are her children: Louise (Raymond) Pagé, Pierrette Jubinville, Guy Bureau, Gisèle (Léonard) Jubinville, Marc (Dianne) Bureau, Roger (Connie) Bureau, Monique (Dave) Fehr, Rita (Dave) Garrant, Colette (Ivan) Brennan, Denis Bureau, Nicole (Lawrence) Urquhart, Doris (Nancy) Laforest; son-in-law: Claude Tessier; thirty-seven grandchildren; seventy-five great grandchildren; five great great granddaughters; four sisters-in-law: Delia Lessard, Eugénie Bureau, Marie-Louise (Lucien) Coulombe, Helen Haponiuk; as well as numerous relatives and friends.
Thérèse was predeceased by her husband: Louis Bureau; infant daughter: Lilliane; daughters: Paulette Tessier, Aline Schaub; granddaughter: Nicoline Fehr; great granddaughter: Angel Bureau; sons-in-law: Émile Schaub, Laurent Jubinville; her parents: Napoléon & Apolline (Garon) Lessard; six brothers: Joseph, Émile, Alphonse, Henri, Louis, Maurice; four sisters: Virginie Rousseau, Cécile Chaput, Laurette Hébert, Jeanne St-Jean.
In mom’s memory please enjoy a good laugh and play a good trick on someone. She loved to laugh.
