With hearts full of treasured memories, the Grey Nuns announce the passing of Sister Thérèse Lesage at St. Joseph’s Auxiliary Hospital, Edmonton, AB. on August 30, 2013, at the age of 79 years.
Sister Thérèse was born in Shawinigan Falls, QC. on August 11, 1934. She joined the Grey Nuns where she served generously for 56 years, mostly in childcare and hospitality. Her friendly disposition and respect for others endeared her to so many people.
She leaves to cherish her memory her Grey Nun Sisters–semicolon– her family Nicole (Willie Deschênes), Jeanne, Louise (Léopold d’Amour), Gilles (Lise), Guy (Marielle), and Roger, her nieces and nephews and the many friends whom she dearly loved.
The Grey Nuns express their deep gratitude to the nursing staff of the Misericordia and St. Joseph’s Auxiliary Hospitals, Edmonton, AB. for their dedicated and compassionate care throughout Sister Thérèse’s illness.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Youville Home Chapel, 9A St. Vital Avenue, St. Albert, AB. Interment to follow at St. Albert Cemetery.
May she pray for us and rest in peace.
