BERTHIAUME: Armande ”Mimi” of Hawkesbury

A Great Lady has Left Us
Armande “Mimi” Berthiaume
November, 2 1929 – April 22, 2016

We are sad to announce the passing of a Great Lady affectionately known as Madam Berthiaume of Hawkesbury, who passed away on Friday April 22, 2016 at the age of 86 years old. A well-respected businesswoman, she was recognized for her contribution to the women’s emancipation and success at the Women of Distinction Gala in 2014. Throughout the years, she earned the confidence, admiration and affection from people in our community.

Armande Berthiaume was born on November 2, 1929 in the village of Sainte-Anne-de-Prescott. She quickly learned the fundamentals of running the family farm from her father the late Paul Tittley and mother the late Alma Binette. She was supported in this task by her brothers and sisters: late Lorraine Ranger (late Réal), Jean-Claude (late Pierrette Clément), Florent (late Lucie Séguin), Rémi (Frances Conway), Fleurette Groleau (Roger) and Jérôme (Louise Lacelle).

All of her toiling and arduous work on the farm honed her innate qualities that would later define her life. She was a recognized leader who took an active role in her community. She embraced whatever cause she committed to. After her studies, she made a career shift and decided to focus on health to become a nurse. She sat on many Board of Directors from the early days of the Hawkesbury General Hospital, which would later become a prestigious institution in the area.

In 1950, she met the man who would become her beloved husband and father of her children, the late Noël Berthiaume. Their six children added great joy to their lives: René (Carole Larocque), late Noël (Carole Beaulieu), Réal-Roq, Yves (Ginette Desjardins), Élise, and Robert (Roxanne Courcy).

She was actively involved in the funeral business and became one of the first francophone women to obtain a funeral director’s license in Ontario.

Following the death of her husband, also on an April 22nd, 47 years ago, she needed to continue to ensure the survival of the businesses and see to her family’s well-being. Her perseverance, determination, courage, and will to succeed, were all further developed during this period. She worked in the funeral sector for over 50 years, and due to her strength of character and her tenacity, she succeeded in passing the flame along to the 3rd and 4th generations. In addition to her dearly-loved children she was blessed with 11 grandchildren: Annie (Michael MacDonald), Jean-René (Joëlle Filiatrault), Claude-Élise, Pascale (Gérald Dragon), Étienne, Lysane (Michel Cousineau), Marie-Lyne (Tom Hall), Catherine (Marc-André Gascon), Olivier (Ghislain Girouard), Laurence (Alex Levaque) et Geneviève (Mathieu Girard), and 8 great-grandchildren that she loved dearly: Zan, Noah, Mathis, Frédérique, Tommy, Daphne, Nicholas and Émilie.

Dear Mimi, be proud of all your accomplishments. Today, if we can take pleasure in the tranquility and serene beauty of the sunrises and sunsets at Pointe-au-Chêne, your beloved haven of peace, it is because of your wisdom, generosity and ability to bring us together. You have been a great source of inspiration for us all. Please, don’t worry about us, we will always be with you. Thank you Mimi for all you have done for us. We will love you forever.

The Berthiaume family invites the community to pay a last tribute to “Mimi” at the Berthiaume Family Funeral Home, 416 McGill Street, Hawkesbury, Ontario, on Wednesday, April 27, from 6 to 9 p.m. and on Thursday, April 28 from 2 to 5 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. A religious ceremony will be held at the Saint-Pierre-Apôtre Parish of Hawkesbury on Friday, April 29, at 10:30 a.m.

The family would like to thank the wonderful staff in the Intensive Care Unit at the Hawkesbury General Hospital and Ottawa Hospital Civic Campus for their attentive, professional care to Mimi, as well as their empathy towards the family.

For those who wish, donations to the Hawkesbury General Hospital Foundation, 101-175 Main Street West, Hawkesbury, Ontario K6A 2H3 and/or to the Canadian Children’s Optimist Foundation, 5205 Metropolitain St. East, Suite 200, Montreal, Quebec, H1R 1Z7 would be appreciated.
