Maureen Dauphinais, of Dunedin, Florida passed away surrounded by her family, on August 8, 2019 at the age of 93. Beloved mother of Caroline Pepin and husband Alfred (deceased) of The Villages, Florida; Marie of Dunedin, Florida; Joseph and wife Debra of Rutland, Vermont; Denyse and husband Thomas Davidson of Austin, Texas; Adele Polcari and husband Martin of Scottsdale, Arizona; Marc and wife Lucia of Heathrow, Florida; Suzanne and husband Eric Carlson of Reading, Massachusetts; six grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. Maureen was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph, her sister, Patricia Smith and son-in-law, Alfred. She received her Registered Nurse degree from the University of Ottawa in 1948, and practiced nursing in Ottawa and Montreal. In her early career as a nurse, she met Joseph Dauphinais and they settled in Arnprior, Ontario to raise their family. Joseph’s career took them to Vermont to practice medicine until relocating to Dunedin, Florida for their retirement. Maureen and Joseph spent their retirement with travel, enjoying the Florida weather and most importantly, with their family. Maureen was known for her devotion to the Catholic Church, her beautiful blue eyes, and her kind and compassionate nature. We celebrate her long and happy life. We will always remember her with love, happiness and with great affection. She lives on in the hearts that love and remember her. Funeral services will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church on Monday, August 12, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. The family is especially grateful to Dr. Dani Mathew of BayCare Medical Group, and the compassionate staff at Suncoast Hospice Palm Harbor. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen and Suncoast Animal League.

To all the Dauphinais family,

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your dear mother. I have very fond memories of her from the years we lived next door to you in Rutland, including the many times she welcomed me into your home. She was a gentle, lovely, gracious person.

Wishing each of you comfort and peace ~
