Gisele Marien (nee Larose) was born April 17, 1928 in Magog Quebec and passed away peacefully on August 21, 2016 in Elora, Ontario. She is survived by Anthony her loving husband of 67 years; her sons Leslie (Valerie), Marc (Cristina) and Michael (Shirley); her grandchildren Lindsay (Steve), Adam, Hillary (Rob), Connor and Teresa; her great-grandchildren Ryan, Rebecca, Alton and Desmond; and by her brother Robert (Pierette). She is predeceased by her parents, Armand and Antoinette Larose.
Gisele was a devoted wife and mother, who was proud to be a “homemaker” as she often said. She prepared and presented meals with great care, and made sure all at the table were happy and full. She loved to travel with Tony to the sunny climes of Hawaii and the Caribbean, and later to some of the amazing countries of Europe. Gisele also had a deep love for nature, especially summers spent at the cottage at Lorimer Lake.
While her last remaining years proved difficult, Gisele had a song on her lips and a deep faith in God. She left us in peace and serenity, and we pray that she be welcomed into the loving arms of the Father, where she will wait for us in our everlasting home.
A Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday August 30 2016 at St. Mary the Immaculate Roman Catholic Church in Elora at 11am.
Donations may be made in Gisele’s memory to Groves Memorial Hospital. Cards available at the funeral home. www.grahamgiddyfh.com or 519-843-3100.
