OBITUARY

Raymonde Gagné Jeghers

November 5, 1933November 11, 2020

C'est avec une profonde tristesse que nous annonçons le décès de Raymonde Gagné-Jeghers, le mercredi 11 novembre 2020, à l'âge de 87 ans après une brève et courageuse bataille contre le cancer. Elle est décédée paisiblement à l'hôpital CHUM de Montréal entourée de sa famille aimante.

Raymonde a rejoint son mari de 65 ans, André « son amour pour toujours », qui l'a précédée en octobre 2018. Elle laisse dans le deuil ses enfants adorés Ronald, Yvon (Lucie), Carole (Jacques) Nathalie (Costa). ses petits-enfants Erik, Kristine, Olivier (Caroline), Charles, Victor et ses arrière- petits-enfants Mikael, David, ses sœurs Jeannine (feu Raymond), Claudette (Pierre) ainsi que de nombreux autres parents et amis.

Raymonde était une femme extraordinaire avec un cœur aimant et une gentillesse pour chaque personne autour d'elle. On se souviendra d'elle pour son élégance, sa beauté, son intelligence et sa prévenance. Sa persévérance était admirable car elle est restée optimiste et courageuse jusqu'à son dernier moment.

La famille Jeghers tient à remercier ses dévoués médecins et soignants à l'hôpital CHUM ainsi qu'à la maison, avec une reconnaissance particulière au Dr Benoît Panzini.

La famille recevra les condoléance au Centre funéraire Côte-des-Neiges , 4525 ch Côte-des-Neiges, Montréal, Québec H3V 1E7, le samedi 5 décembre 2020 de 11h à 16h, suivi d'une cérémonie privée.

Des dons, en mémoire de Raymonde, a l’Oratoire Saint-Joseph de Montréal, auprès du Saint Frère André, seraient appréciés

Ma belle Maman d'amour,

Merci pour tout.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for having being an amazing Maman to me and a wonderful Grand Maman for Charles, Victor and Xavier. Thank you for accepting Jacques in our family.
Here's to you and your outstanding gentle spirit. Your elegance , beauty and creative talents were enumerable. From hat maker to couturiere to home decorating. You taught me the love of clothing and costumes. Your receptions were prepared with love and delicious attention. You translated English to French and French to English perfectly. Your knowledge and in particular your memory for fine details would astound me. You travelled and moved numerous times to follow, as a team, to encourage Papa ( for 65 years) with 4 children in tow not always an easy task but done with grace and great planning. Fiercely decisive in a quite but not a shy way you listened to others with interest and humility. Your advice and wisdom was deeply appreciated and priceless. You encouraged my love of art and when you found art that I had thrown away you put it aside and built a secret port folio for me that was only revealed years late. How adorable !
The love, generosity and devotion you shared with Papa showed me to be trustworthy and loving.
You always thought of others first and even worried a tad to much. Because you cared so much. You remained a fantastic daughter by remaining forever available to and helpful for your parents and parents in law.
Your sense of humor would surprise and send us in roaring laughter ....especially " les petit farce cochonne"
Maman I miss your smile, your gentle caring voice. I miss your laughter. I miss your sweet soft cheeks to kiss and you hand to hold.
I miss your guidance and wisdom.
I miss you profoundly and beyond words.
My heart is broken and my tears over flow. I miss your Chanel #5 and the oder of garlic on your hands.
Keep safe in Heaven and please hug Papa for us.

I love you more.
Ta fille Carole

Dear Nathalie and Costa,

I have so many wonderful memories of my time spent with your family. Especially all the weekends I spent at your house as a teenager and young adult at your homes in Thornhill and Montreal. Your mother was always so welcoming and kind. She loved to sit and chat with us and loved to laugh. As teenagers, our many social plans sometimes made her nervous but she was willing to drive us and always waited up to make sure we were home safe. I know she is so proud of the kind and compassionate woman you have become. When I visited with her this past summer I could tell how happy she was living in your home. She told how welcoming and kind you both were. This of course makes it all so much more difficult for you. Take comfort in the knowledge that she is now at peace in heaven with your father and looking over you.

Quelle femme, mère, épouse et grand-mère exceptionnelle! Je me souviendrai toujours de ce regard d'une grande douceur, de ce sourire d'une grande tendresse et d'une empathie hors du commun. Elle fut pour moi une source d'inspiration à bien des égards. Je lui serai toujours reconnaissante de m'avoir accueillie à bras ouverts lors d'événements familiaux, me faisant ainsi témoigner de moments précieux que je n'oublierai jamais - une tendresse et un amour infini et inconditionnel envers ses enfants, petits-enfants et bien sûr "l'amour de sa vie", André. Bien que son départ m'attriste, je sais qu'elle est à nouveau réunie avec "l'amour de sa vie" et qu'ensemble ils veillent sur leur précieuse famille et amis. Au revoir, Madame Jeghers, et merci encore.

Sourire chaleureuse et sincère d'une cliente qui est devenue mon amie au fil des années. Femme généreuse, respectueuse, aimante.
Comment oublier celle qui n'a jamais raté une occasion pour s'enquérir de mes nouvelles. Elle s'inquiétait de ma santé physique et mentale.
Chère Raymonde, tu resteras graver dans ma mémoire !

Adieu ! Love toujours
Agathe

Raymonde,

While I am comforted by knowing that you are once again with Andre, I will miss you. You welcomed me into your life with grace. I have such fond memories of your home in TMR and many laughs around the kitchen table. The last time we spent time together you gave me wonderful advice which I will always cherish.

To the family Jeghers,
May your memories comfort you through the dificult days. I am very sorry for your loss.
With love,
Brenda Callahan
