Our mother peacefully passed away with her loving family by her side, on October 16, 2013 at MET Hospital at the beautiful age of 89. Daughter of the late Joseph and Blanche (Primeau).  Cherished mother of the late Gerald Souilliere (1955), Caroline & Barry Kovack, Mary Ann Sanders, Alfred & Sandy Souilliere, Brenda & Rick Ouellette, the late Theresa Souilliere (2012), Lisa & Kyle Nelson and Bob Souilliere & Maria DeRubeis. Our mother also has been fortunate to be survived by many beautiful grandchildren: Chris, Sheri, Michelle, Doug, Paul, the late Derek Souilliere (2013), Shannon, Rick, Mike, Joey, Krystal, Mitchell and Brittany and great-grandchildren Hailey, Kolby, Abbey, Lionel, Ashea, Blake, Ryan. Sister to Jack and Marlene. Predeceased by brothers Ralph, Richard, John, Frank, Lawrence and Rene. Even though our mother’s life was always filled with physical pain and illness she always had great strength and courage to overcome her suffering by the love she had for her family; raising her children to have values and to wear their courage with pride on their sleeve. The love she had for us kept her strong and brave, even to the end. We are very proud and honoured to have had such a wonderful mother given to us. She passed away on our father’s birthday, a special gift given to our dad. Now they will be able to walk together once more hand and hand. We would especially like to thank our guardian angel Dr. Fortuna who cared for our mother for so many years. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for this compassionate, wonderful man. Special thanks to the 6th floor nurses at MET Hospital and the nurses who took care of our mother during her therapy, you know who you are.
