Marie-Rose Poirier

5 January, 19317 April, 2021

POIRIER, Marie-Rose (née St-Germain) - It is with profound sorrow that we announce the death of our dear mother Marie-Rose Poirier who passed away on April 7, 2021 at her home surrounded by her heartbroken children. Age 90 years. She leaves to mourn her cherished husband of 70 years, Leo Joseph Poirier. Loving mother of Claire (Mike), Denise, Gerald, Maurice (Peggy), Elaine (Bill), Daniel (Joanne), Jeanne (Dan), Pauline, Robert, Rachelle (Marlin), and Alain (PattyLynn). Her grandchildren Jeff, Steve, Jennifer, Jason, Jonathan, Trevor, Tyler, Valerie, Eric, Jacob, Chad, Candace, Caitlan and Justin. Also eleven great grandchildren and her precious fur companion Jessy. Marie Rose was such a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother always putting her family’s needs before her own. She will be forever missed by her loving sisters Florence Carriere (late Lionel), Marie-Ange Sigouin (late Bernard) and many nephews and nieces. As well as Tony and Laurette Quenneville. Predeceased by her parents Adolphus St-Germain, Délima (Délorme), sister Evelyne Quevillion (late Francois) and her brother Réne St-Germain (Louise). Marie-Rose was such a kind and gentle soul with a heart of gold and unselfishness. She was a great cook and always cooked enough to feed her family and more just in case someone else would drop in unannounced. Growing up, we will always remember her Sunday morning ritual of baking pies. She would always manage to make a raisin pie as that was dad’s favorite, as for us children it didn’t matter we loved them all. She was also renowned for her famous and delicious tourtières, had she entered them in a baking contest we are sure she would have won first prize. She was an exceptional gardener and made tons of preserves and canning over the years that carried us through the long winter months. Her love of plants and flowers shined through in her home and yard, year after year. Today she walks through the heavenly rose gardens and is watching over each and every one of her dearly beloved. As per Marie-Rose’s wishes, donations to the Alzheimer Society of Cornwall or the Cancer Society would be appreciated. Marie-Rose was cremated as per her wish and a celebration of life will take place when the Covid restrictions lessen. Her remains will be interned in the homes of her children until then. Arrangements have been entrusted to Lahaie & Sullivan Cornwall funeral Homes, West Branch (613-932-8482). Messages of condolences may be left at www.lahaiesullivan.ca

My most sincere condolences to all the family for their loss of such a wonderful woman. I remember her fondly for her smile, caring ways and love for her family - all of her children, husband and extended family. Always a smile and never complaining. She certainly was one of a kind.
