Antoinette Desjardins


Antoinette Desjardins

Our loving mother, Antoinette… died peacefully, on June 5, 2024 at the Grand Falls General Hospital. She was 92 years old. She was the widow of Rino Desjardins. Born at St-Leonard-Parent in 1932, she was the last surviving family member of the late William and Flavie (Corbin) Martin.

Antoinette was an exemplary mother figure and human being. She embodied the best qualities: unconditional love, strength of spirit, and an unending generosity that could be seen in her care for her family and friends. She was always someone her kids could go to for advice, love and comfort.

She loved to cook and bake, when you went for a visit, you could often find her searching her cook books to find new recipes. Whenever she made pies, she always made sure to make everyone’s favorite, so there were multiple pies. She also enjoyed doing some needlepoint which she had to abandon due to a degenerative eye condition.

She is survived by her five children, Laurette (Mike McLaughlin) and Lise (Maurice Michaud) of Grand Falls, Marcel (Tracy) of Chatham, Ontario, Monique (Brian Rogers) of Saint John and Serge of Grand Falls, eight grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, brother-in-law Thomas Desjardins (Dorothée) of Grand Falls and nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by an infant daughter Marie, a son Réal and an unborn child, four brothers, Léo, Rino, Joseph (Joe-Pitoute) and Wilfred and a sister Isabelle.

Resting at O’Regan’s Funeral Home, 515 Everard Daigle Blvd., Grand Falls with visiting hours on Thursday, June 13th  from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

Her funeral service will be held Thursday, June 13th  at 11 a.m. from the Assumption Roman Catholic Church, Grand Falls with interment in the parish cemetery.

For those who wish, donations to a charity of the donor’s choice would be appreciated.


The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to

Dr. Daniel Roy, the Medical Staff of the Grand Falls General Hospital

and the Nurses of the Extra-Mural Program

for their excellent care given to our mother
