LOISELLE, Bernadette (nee Grimard)
November 6, 1938 – January 11, 2020
It is with much love that we announce the passing of Bernadette Loiselle of Vonda, SK, at the age of 81. She passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Home in Saskatoon. Bernadette was the 6th child of a family of 12, and grew up on a farm near Prud’homme, SK. She married Laurent Loiselle of Vonda on August 6, 1958 and they were wed for 61 years. Bernadette was preceded in death by her parents Victorien and Hubertine, brothers Louis, Laurent and Guy, and grandson Trevor. She is survived by her husband Laurent, 4 children Marc (Anita), Celeste (Jim), Damien, Lynne (Chad), 11 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. Bernadette was a beloved school teacher and helped educate students for over 40 years. She was a woman of great character known for her loyalty, faith, humor, and selflessness. She enjoyed her large garden, baking for her family, knitting and crocheting. She was a pillar in the community and her presence will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers the family would be grateful for donations made to St. Joseph’s Home (33 Valens Dr, Saskatoon, SK S7L 3S2). This is where Bernadette spent the last two months of her life and received the most exceptional care. We are forever in debt to the wonderful Sisters, nurses and staff of St. Joseph’s who made Bernadette’s final days peaceful and filled with love. A Vigil for Bernadette will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, January 17. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 18. Both services will be held at St. Philippe-de-Néri Roman Catholic Church in Vonda, SK. Arrangements in care of John Schachtel – Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.
