In Loving Memory of

Thelma Lennia Lajeunesse (Hager)

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our Mother, Nana and best friend Thelma Lennia Lajeunesse (Hager) after a short battle with cancer.

Thelma (known as Nana to all) was born December 30, 1927 to Helga and Albin Hager and was raised in Laclu along with her eight siblings: Carl, Harold, Albert, Arthur, Alvin, Eva, Ruby and Viola.

Thelma met and married Reg Lajeunesse in 1947 and in over 50 years of marriage raised six children: Dennis (Barb), Cal (predeceased, 1999) (Wendy), Pat Olson (Dale), Shirley Rumpel (Ron), Melody Alcock, Lisa Gagnon (Marcel). She also has two godchildren, Connie Ahola and Bonnie Robb.

Nana had 16 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren who have many memories to cherish of endless hours spent swimming off the dock or simply hanging out on Beach Road. Nana was the pillar of our family. She loved each and every one of us unconditionally with all her heart, leaving us all with life long memories to cherish.

Her strength came from her great faith in the Lord. Her church family at New Beginnings were very special to her.

Rest in peace Nana; you will be truly missed. We love you.

Pallbearers will be Thelma's grandsons Clay Lajeunesse, Ben Lajeunesse, Jon Olson, Chris Hagloff, Cody Hagloff and Justin Harper.

Funeral Services will be held on Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, with Pastors Bill and Carol Lawson officiating.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Cancer Society or charity of choice.

What does it look like in heaven is it peaceful is it free like they say does the sun shining bright forever have your fears and your pain gone away cause Here on earth it feels like everything.. good is missing, since you left and here on earth everything is different, there is an emptiness oh I, I hope you're dancing in the sky I hope you're singing in the angels's choir I hope the angels, know what they have I bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived <3

Its been a month since you passed nothings the same anymore without you here.I drive passed your house now and then and i get choked up from all the memories.We used to be able to just walk in and have you greet us either sitting in your chair or walking out of your bedroom.Every time i walk in its different i stand waiting to hear you say "come sit down and tell me a story" I miss you Nana keep a eye on us all down here God knows we all need your guidance as we continue moving forward trying to do what we believe you would want us to do.Keep watching Nana theirs big things to come,big mountains to climb but i know your there every step of the way cheering us on.

Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there I do not sleep Iam a thousand winds that blow. Iam the diamond glints on snow. Iam the sun on ripening grain. Iam the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hushed light, Iam the up-fling of birds in flight. Iam the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry Iam not there. I did not die
