Yvette Dubé

1934-2022

Yvette Dubé

At the Falls Villa (Grand Falls Manor), June 30, 2022, Mrs. Yvette Dubé of Saint-André passed away at the age of 87 years. She was the widow of Roland Dubé. Born at Saint-André in 1934, she was a daughter of the late Alfred B. and Yvonne (Poitras) Levesque. 

She was a hard working and loving potato producer's wife, who was the crew chief during harvesting season. A loving mother to her nine children, she always had a practical joke brewing in her mind. Ever the teacher, she would make sure our homework was done before play. She adored the grandchildren and great grandchildren.

She was part of the team of volunteers at her church; enumerator supervisor for several censuses; a founding member of Le Comptoir vestimentaire; she was a member of a genealogical society that published family histories for the Dubé and Levesque families in North America. She was a proud card-carrying Liberal. She also served on several village committees organising various fetes. 

She was also a member of the Girl Guides, Charter member of the Saint-André Daughters of Isabella, was on the Board of Directors of the Saint-André Villa and of the Canadian Mental Health Association.

She is survived by seven children, Claude (Rachel Marsh) of Monmouth, Wales, Gaëtan (Sharon Tarasof) of Fernie, BC, Charles (Gaétanne Pelletier) of Moncton, NB, Bertrand ''Bert'' (Sarah Loponen) of Thunder Bay, ON, Marise (Gord Long) of Merrickville, ON, Rollande of Heatherton, NS and Jean-Yves (Sylvie Levesque) of Saint-André, 15 grandchildren, Wayne Dubé, Christian Dubé, Joel Dubé, Henri Dubé, Candy Scott, Casey Dubé, Jessica Dubé, Sébastien Dubé, Leo Dubé, Jacqueline Dubé, Kate McWade, Jamie Long, Jeff Bueglas, Terry Dubé and Kimberley McAskill, 14 great grandchildren, Zachary Dubé, Aiden Dubé, Alyssa Dubé, Mickey Habart, Jordi Habart, Jérémy Bourgeois, Olivia Dubé, William Dubé, Théo Dubé, Audrey Dubé (Sébastien), Hazel Long, Lyla McWade, Raea Long and Audrey Dubé (Terry), one brother, Alphée Levesque (Jeanne d'Arc) of Ste-Foy, Quebec as well as several nieces and nephews.
