Rest in Peacce dear Aunt Catherine. I have many fond memories of staying at your house in my younger years. Give a big hug to all your siblings who went on before you, my precious mom, Delia Peloquiin-L'Allier. Joanne and I were born on the same day, which I thought was so neat. You lived to be "96" years old. You are the last of the great generation. All my Aunties and uncles are now gone but they are celebratting on the streets of Gold. My deepest sympathy to all my Belland Cousin's. Your mom is in a better place. God Bless each of you and your families. 💟 💟 💟 💟 💟 💟 💟

Grandma would always ask me to driver her to the casino on my day off; one afternoon I was standing on the sidewalk in front of the Wyoming IGA and a car pulled up kinda fast and rolled down the window. I looked in and saw Aunt Cel and Grandma smiling at me. They both asked if I’d like to go with them to the casino... Aunt Cel even said I could drive... How could a girl say no... Miss you grandma and I’m so thankful you have your partner in crime back.... Love you

I have soooo many memories of Auntie. She and my Grandma Cel were two peas in a pod. I remember one time when we were trying to take my grams drivers license away, she wasn't supposed to be driving. I was driving through Forest Lake and spotted grams car. I followed it to Walmart parking lot where out hops Aunt Catherine and Gram. I stood at the back of the car and it was as if I was looking at two teenagers caught red handed. They just stood there giggling and reminded me that together they made one good driver. She would always leave $5 in my back seat after I refused it after picking her up from the casino bus or taking them to church. Lots of laughs and beautiful memories. Say hi to Gram in Heaven for me. Love you Auntie.
