Aurelie Marie Adolphine Duperreault

October 31, 1923January 11, 2021

Aurélie Duperreault Oct. 31, 1923 - Jan. 11, 2021 It is with very heavy hearts that we inform you of the passing of Aurélie Marie Adolphine Duperreault on Jan. 11, 2021. Aurélie is survived by her children Eliane (Bob) Hutchinson, Raymond (Edith) Duperreault, Ralph (Ginette) Duperreault, Jeanne (Tim Appelt) Duperreault, Louise (Peter) Unger, Christine (Christopher) Pook, Colette Duperreault, Joseph (Anneli) Duperreault, Damien Duperreault, and Monique Duperreault. She was predeceased by her husband Cléas in 1999, and her son Michel (Sheila) Duperreault in 2020. Aurélie also leaves a legacy of 18 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. She was born in Willow Bunch, Saskatchewan, the eldest of 13 children in 1923. After graduating from high school she continued her studies at Normal School and taught school for a short time before marrying Cléas in 1943. A happy marriage of 56 years was very busy, with 11 children to feed and tend to, but in later years she still found time to do volunteer work. One of the places she volunteered was St. Ann’s, helping to deliver books to the residents. And the last 3 years of her life were spent there, where she was loved and will be missed by residents and staff. A private funeral service will be held for Aurélie on Thursday, January 14, limited to the immediate family because of the covid restrictions, followed by the interment in Willow Bunch on January 15, where she’ll be laid to rest next to her beloved Cléas.

I was so sorry to read of your lovely Mother's passing. She was a good neighbour and lived a full and long life; but no matter how long her life was it is always too soon to lose your Mother.
I offer my sympathy to your entire family.

Dear Jeanne,
Please accept my condolences on the death of your mother. I remember her as a cheerful, energetic woman with more children than we had in our family!
What a remarkable life she had, rising to meet each occasion that challenged her during her long and abundant life.

I enjoyed seeing you in Saskatoon on one of the many visits you made to see your mother.
I hope you and your family are safe and well, Jeanne.

Colette and I extend our deepest condolences on your loss. Aurélie was described as having "saintly calmness" and this is an accurate description. I have fond memories of spending time in the busy Duperreault household as a teenager and observing her tranquil and confident demeanor. Her presence was always warm and comforting, almost as if she possessed a secret that no one else knew...the secret of inner peace.

Our hearts, thoughts, and energy are with the family at this time.

My sincerest condolences on the passing of your mother. gtand mother and great grand mother. She was a n amazing woman with a proud Metis heritage from WB. While I lived in Saskatoon, I enjoyed visiting Tante Aurelie and oncle Cliff especially over the Christmas season. Meals were great, the company better, and the hockey games very challenging. No competitive bones in tante Aurelie's children!!!! I always wondered why my shins were bruised after a hockey game with my cousins!

Tante Aurelie was a wonderful aunt, a saintly woman, and a proud mother. May she rest in peace. And to you, dear cousins, please accept my family's heartfelt condolences. You are in our prayers.

Jean, Micheline, Gabriel and Camille
