Obituary for Stéphane Simard
On Sunday morning January 7th at Pioneer Manor, our father Stéphane (91) went to be with his Lord. Finally relieved of the sufferings of this world, he can now enjoy Jesus' constant presence! Son of the late Arthur Simard and the late Blanche (née Watier), Stéphane is predeceased by his first wife Coranna (née Carrey) and his second wife Henriette (née Ricard). Beloved father of Monique Charbonneau (Gerry), Jocelyne Ubeaud (Michel) and Marc (Martine), and step-father to Henriette's children, he is predeceased by his daughter Jeannette Dick (David) and his son Jean-Pierre. Cherished grandfather of Sarah Dick and Meghan Bruder, Mélanie, Lianne Courtemanche and Josée, Jean-Pierre, Patrick and Manon, he is great-grandfather of several great-grandchildren. Beloved brother of Georgette Paquette (Norman), Thérèse Simard-Lebel (late Yvon, late Roméo) and Roméo (Ruth), he is predeceased by his brothers Laurent (late Jeannine), Jean-Paul (late Yolande), Louis-Philippe (late Agathe) and François d'Assise, and by his sisters Margo Carrey (late Tom) and Rita Bédard (Paul). He will be missed by many nephews and nieces, extended family and friends. Our deepest appreciation goes to the devoted staff of the Manor, and to Steve's faithful visitors. During our father's journey, we have seen our Lord's faithful hand through you.
