Mr. Léo Remillard
May 10, 1918 - March 8, 2008
C’est avec grand regret que nous annonçons le décès de notre cher papa et grandpapa au Foyer Valade, le 8 mars 2008.
Il était âgé de 89 ans.
Il laisse dans le deuil ses quatre filles: Louise Ulrich et son ami Richard Gruener, Denise (Denis) Boissonneault, Pauline (Denis) Collette et Yvette (Dale) Harlos; neuf petits-enfants: Paul, Robert, Charles Bouchard, Roland, Raymond, Gilles, Lise Boissonneault, Alain et Stéphan Harlos; douze arrière-petits-enfants; un frère: Gérard (feue Denise) Rémillard; une soeur: Rita (feu Steve) Person; plusieurs belles-soeurs, beaux-frères, neveux et nièces.
Il fut précédé par son épouse Raymonde (née Tremblay) en 1997, ses parents Jules (1975) et Régina (née Desrosiers – 1969), son frère Paul (1919) et ses soeurs Yvette (1923) et Jeanne (feu Louis) Deniset (1977).
Léo est né dans la maison paternelle, rue Dumoulin à Saint-Boniface, le 10 mai 1918.
Diplômé du Collège de Saint-Boniface, il entreprit en 1948 une longue et heureuse carrière dans le domaine des communications devenant tour à tour membre de la première équipe des annonceurs à CKSB, réalisateur, directeur des programmes, gérant de station à CHFA (Edmonton) et CBJ (Chicoutimi) ainsi que directeur des services français de Radio-Canada dans les Prairies.
Homme de théâtre, ses talents de comédien au Cercle Molière et ailleurs au pays furent souvent reconnus et chaudement applaudis.
Il était fier parrain du Cercle Molière. Le Théâtre des ainés lui doit ses quinze premières années de direction artistique.
Animé par un profond souci d’assurer la survivance et l’évolution du fait français dans l’Ouest, Léo a accepté avec grande générosité de servir sa communauté à titre de président de l’Association d’éducation des canadiens-français du Manitoba, du Cercle Molière, du Centre culturel de Saint-Boniface, de la Fédérat ion des canadiens-français de l’Ouest canadien et comme vice-président de l’Association canadienne-française de l’Alberta.
Le 10 novembre 2006, la Division scolaire franco-manitobaine lui donna le grand honneur de nommer la nouvelle école secondaire à Saint-Vital “Centre scolaire Léo-Rémillard”.
Other than his family, Dad’s passion was radio, television and the theatre.
He was lucky enough to have worked and played in all of them during his lifetime.
His career in radio began in 1946 as one of the first radio announcers to open the new French radio station CKSB, in St. Boniface.
He retired as Director of CBC Radio Canada for the Prairie Provinces in 1983.
To satisfy his third passion, theatre, Dad played in many productions with le Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface and the Cercle Molière. He was until his death, the officical “godfather” of le Cercle Molière.
Dad’s community activities were numerous and his awards for community involvement many; however, on November 10, 2006, he was given the great honour of having the new Division scolaire franco-manitobaine high school in St. Vital named after him – “Centre scolaire Léo-Rémillard”
A special thank you to the wonderful staff of the 3rd floor at Foyer Valade for their compassionate care.
Funeral mass will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 13 at the St. Boniface Cathedral.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Fonds scolaire Léo-Rémillard, Francofonds, 605 rue DesMeurons, pièce 202, Saint-Boniface, MB R2H 2R1.

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden loss of our dearest and most beloved Mom and best friend on Friday March 14, 2008, at the age of 83, surrounded by family that loved and cherished her.

She also kept busy in her spare time holding various Executive Positions at Elm Creek Legion Branch.
Mom had an exceptional talent for knitting and crocheting, especially for all the newborns in the family and various friends.
She was what one would cal a multi-tasker, knit, crochet, watch television and carry on an enlightening conversation, without dropping a stitch.
She will be remembered by all whoever had the pleasure of knowing her for her generosity and always making you feel welcome whenever you dropped in to see her.
Her first words were always, “are you hungry and what would you like to eat and drink”.
She raised her children with the best of values and was always there when anyone needed a shoulder to cry on and words of encouragement and support, no matter how trivial the matter, everyone was important to her.
She always found the good in people and made their shortcomings be overshadowed with goodness and understanding.
The family wishes to acknowledge and thank the dedicated staff of Health Sciences Centre, Wing G3, for their tender care, and also the SICU, for their compassion and exemplary care during Mom’s last hours.
