He and his wife Bertha (Hill), who met right after the war and were married in her hometown of St. Stephen in 1946, also retired here in 1980, where he pursued his passion for gardening. Throughout his life, René served the communities he was a part of, continuing to do so here as an active volunteer at the Church of the Holy Rosary; and in multiple roles, including that of President, at St. Croix Br. #9 of the Royal Canadian Legion. His robust service ethic and strong sense of humanity and support made him a role model and hero to his family and others. With children and grandchildren of our own, we still aspire to be like our Dad.

Our family is so very grateful, as our father was, for the loving care, support, and fellowship from the staff and residents of Lonicera Hall, the services of the many health care professionals from the Extra-Mural Program, and the exceptional end-of-life care provided by the nursing, medical, and other staff of Charlotte County Hospital, who ensured his last moments were dignified and free of concern. We also wish to sincerely and emphatically thank his Legion family for all their helpful and thoughtful support through his last years.

Whether she was crafting, tackling a major renovation project, or attending to a stray child or lost puppy, Dot was fearless in taking on new projects. Her eagerness to explore new things lasted to the end of her life. Dot’s most joyous times were spent with her family and friends at her cottage on Cathance Lake, in Downeast Maine. To celebrate her 90th birthday, Dot went “tubing” across the lake behind her son’s motorboat, played cards with her great-grandchildren, and ate chocolate raspberry cream pie.
