It is with the deepest sadness that we announce that our loving and caring Dorice died at the hospital in Grand Falls, NB on June 11, 2022 at the age of 83.
Faithful wife of 61 years to Bernard Michaud and residing in Saint Léonard, NB, she is also survived by her three sons: Guy (Marcella Lapointe) of Saint Léonard, NB, Gilles (Rita McNeil) of Ottawa, ON and Luc ( Nadine Malenfant) of Dieppe, NB for whom she served as a model of courage, conviction and unconditional love.
Her grandchildren Julie Mazerolle (Luc) of Saint Léonard, NB, Lindsie Tardif (Billy) of Moncton, NB, Éric Michaud of Victoria, BC, Danie Michaud of London, England, Alexis Michaud (Vickie) of Shediac, NB and Maxime Michaud (Katia Arsenault) of Cap Pelé, NB will have benefited from the wisdom, divine goodness and good cooking of their grandmother Dorice.
Her great-grandchildren Marilou, Magali, Fred, Maya and Eva will keep fond memories of their great-grandmother Michaud's contagious smile and human warmth.
A teacher by profession, she was able to inspire a taste for knowledge and learning in thousands of people until her last day. Her tenacity and competitiveness that characterized her exploits in life were not enough to overcome her greatest challenge in the form of cancer.
Moreover, the family would like to thank the staff of the Grand Falls and Edmundston hospitals, including those of the extra-mural program, for having accompanied her with dignity and provided the most professional care over the past two years. Special mention is directed to Doctor Jacques Maillet of the Dr Léon Richard Oncology Centre who followed with attention and respect the journey of our dear Dorice.
Born in Lac Baker, NB in 1938 and daughter of the late Joseph Caouette and the late Florida Lang, it is her humility, her joie de vivre and her unparalleled sense of humor that her brother Carmel (late Berthe) of Edmundston, NB and her sister Odette Duggan (Paul) of Toronto, ON, as well as her many nephews, nieces and friends will always be remembered. Dorice is predeceased by her brothers Roger (Corinne Potvin), Alban (Anita Mailly), Conrad (late Marie Mai Lavoie), Lewis (Gisèle Boulanger) and Lucien (Lise Plamondon) as well as her sisters Marthe (late Éric Boutot), Gilberte (late Roger Levesque) and Lucille.
All are invited to join the family on June 30, 2022 at 11 a.m. at the church of Saint Léonard NB, located on Principale Street, to celebrate the life of our beloved Dorice in prayers, tributes and songs. Her ashes will be on display beginning at 9:30 a.m. on the day of the funeral at O'Regan's Chapel, located at 83 St Antoine Street in Saint Leonard, NB. A reception will accompany the rest of the celebrations in the basement of the church.
Although Dorice appreciated the beauty and symbolism of the gift of flowers, her expressed wishes are that donations be directed to the Canadian Cancer Society New Brunswick Division or to the Myeloma Foundation 8849M Inc., 17 Bliss-Noiles Street, Dieppe, NB E1A 0W7.
