Obituary of Lucille Sauvé

Sauvé, Lucille
April 13, 1940 - January 18, 2019

Lucille Sauvé peacefully passed away in the Kingston General Hospital with loving family members at her side.
Lucille attended St. Joseph Elementary School in Lancaster and the Ecole de Marie in Montréal for her secondary education. After a brief stay at the Noviciat des Soeurs de Ste Croix in St. Laurent, Québec, she completed her teacher training at the Ecole Normale d'Ottawa.  She then began her 37 years teaching career in various French elementary separate schools in and around Cornwall and Ottawa. Along the way she found the time to obtain a B.A. from the University of Ottawa. In the mid-70's she moved to Toronto permanently and continued her teaching career in several French separate schools there, winding up her career as a Special Ed teacher.
Lucille is survived by her brother Clément, twenty or so nieces and nephews, particularly her nieces Huguette Leroux, Francyne Givogue and Micheline Dobson which she had helped raise and finally brother-in-law Jacques Lapierre Sr and sister-in-law Marcelle Sauvé-Chaussé. Her parents Euclide Sauvé and Alexina Brunet, sisters Pauline St. Pierre and Jeannine Lapierre and brother Euclide Sauvé Jr predeceased her.
In retirement Lucille became a shrewd bridge player and an accomplished water- colour artist among other pursuits.
In latter years Lucille contended with Alzheimer's disease. The family wishes to thank the staff of the McCowan Retirement Residence in Toronto and Extendicare and Providence Manor in Kingston for the excellent care they provided to her.
A funeral service will be held at St. Joseph Church in Lancaster, Ontario, at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 16 followed by a celebration of Lucille's life at the NavCanada Centre in Cornwall.
In lieu of flowers donations to the Alzheimer Society of Ontario in Lucille's memory would be welcome.
