Delores DebrayOctober 23, 2017
It is with deep sadness and regret that we announce the peaceful passing of Delores Debray (nee Vermette) at St. Paul’s Hospital on Monday, October 23rd, 2017. Mom was our #1 advocate and our rock. She was born in Rosthern on May 17th, 1947 to Alex and Lena Vermette. She met Lawrence Debray in 1962 and they were married in 1965. They made their home in Saskatoon and raised their children there. Dale was born in 1966, followed by Dean in 1969, Dallas in 1974, and Dawn in 1978. Delores worked at Porteous Lodge for 18 years. One of her favorite places was St. Laurent Shrine. She spent many summers there volunteering her time and worshipping with her family and friends. She enjoyed cooking big meals, baking, bingo and trips to Walmart with Lawrence, but most of all, she loved her family. Delores was the first to open her home to anyone and everyone who stopped by the house. She took in foster children, babysat for many different families, and always had her grandkids and great-grandkids around the house. She leaves behind her husband Lawrence, of 51 years; her children Dale, Dean (Teena), Dallas (Stacey), and Dawn (David); siblings Ilene Sauve, Gilbert Vermette (Aline), Claire Bazylak, and Bev (Elaine) Vermette; her in-laws Doris (John) Froats, Ronald Debray (Rosie), Cecile Debray, Lionel (Edith) Debray, Lloyd (Marge) Debray, and Anne Debray (Randy) and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, friends, and family. She was predeceased by Alexandre and Lena Vermette, Robert and Lillian Debray, Lionel, Joe, and Archie Vermette, Angie (Bob) Nicolas, Joe Sauve, Frank Bazylak, Shirley Vermette, and Edwin Debray. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in Duck Lake, SK at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 28th, 2017 at the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. Father Phin will be officiating the service. The Rite of Committal will follow at St. Laurent Shrine. Donations can be made to your charity of choice.
