In loving memory of
Thérèse Marie (née Grenier) Bisson
March 29, 1931 – August 10, 2019
Age: 88 years
Thérèse Bisson peacefully passed away on Saturday, August 10, 2019 at Canwood Whispering Pines Place.
Thérèse loved being with family and friends. Much treasured time was spent with her husband, Sylva, who cared for her and cherished every moment they had together. She consistently took time to call or text with her daughters and always enjoyed when someone dropped in for a visit.
In her earlier years, she was a devoted member of the church and community. She volunteered countless hours and was always ready to give someone a helping hand. She had a strong faith in God and she devoted much time praying for her family and for those in need.
For many years, she enjoyed spending time at the cabin, playing cards or a game of ‘’Tock’’, crafting, gardening, shopping, and travelling. In her later years, she took pleasure at watching her family grow, rocking in her chair, going to the entertainment provided at the Care Homes, looking at her pictures, playing games on her I-pad, and trying to figure out her cell phone.
How blessed we were to have you as our mother. You were an inspiration to us and our role model. You were humorous, generous, and loving. You taught us so much about life – your love for life, how to enjoy each day, one day at a time, and to never give up in life. You always had a piece of advice, a thought, or simply a story to share when needed. There’s no one else we would have wanted as our guide. We will dearly miss you, mom! May God care for you as you cared for us! Nous savons que tu es maintenant au paradis avec Dieu. Aujourd’hui, tu te présentes au Seigneur avec amour et qu’il vienne à ta rencontre.
