Some of my fondest and most blessed childhood experiences and memories were made possible by "Madame" Trepanier's beautiful heart and generosity of maternal spirit in welcoming me into her family clan as one of her own...Swimming at Allen Pond , blackberry picking, going out for an ice cold A&W root beer after church, picking corn in Mr. Talbot's garden, picnics at "the brook", running errands in the VW bus, dancing to Elvis's music in front of his giant lifesize cutout, sitting
down to savor a bowl of her famous marrow bone soup with "tart de raison" for dessert...these are just a few of the childhood gems that have inspired, fortified and sustained me in my life journey. I will be eternally grateful...Thank-you for sharing your keen perception, your life spirit, your vivacity, your mirth and in particular your sence of joy and wonder. You will be dearly missed.
With heartfelt thanks and admiration, Ann (Charpentier) Breau

I have so many wonderful memories of your mother. . Several years ago I would occasionally join my parents, your mother and Aunt Terry for lunch at a Chinese buffet. Your mother was always so happy, fun and full of energy . It was a joy to be in her company. After my mother passed away she and my father were even closer. She would help him with household chores and they would go to lunch. It helped him get through the rough first months. We all appreciated her thoughtfulness. She would call my sisters and I “Mon Chou” and our hearts would melt. I wish that I could be there to honor her passing. Know that she is in our thoughts.

My deepest sympathy to all the Trepanier family. I've known Joan for a long time and she was my mom's best friend. She was the sweetest women I've ever known. No matter where I'd see her she always had a smile on her face and a hug. She will be missed.

Mrs. Trepanier, you lit up every room that you have walked into. When I was visiting Ron's place and he said you were stopping by, it always brought a smile to my face and when you walked in, you brought a sense of warmth with you. You are dearly missed.

I can't think of single time that anyone who was blessed to be in your presence didn't feel love, laughter and happiness. There many memories, from sleepovers making Pepere watch the Sound of Music with late night toast and jelly for a snack to the first time I brought a friend over to meet you and certain words would fly out of your mouth and shock them. My cousins and I could not have been more lucky in having you as a grandmother. There is no light, like the one that shown through your sole everytime you smiled and the world is just a bit dimmer for your passing. Fly free Memere there is no more pain. We love you more than words can say and miss you more than that!

I am saddened to hear of her passing. She was a dear, sweet lady and her hugs were legendary.; she would never leave the office without giving me one (and I was always glad to receive them). May her memory be eternal.

Dear Mom, you were the light in our lives. You were one of those rare people that made the world a better place. Always thinking and caring about others, you are the best mom that anyone could ever ask for. We were so blessed to have you for a mother and I am forever grateful, until we meet again mom I will love you forever.
