Funeral arrangements by
Desjardins Funeral Chapel

LÉOPOLD “TI-TI” CHARTIER Le dimanche 30 janvier 2005 Léopold est décédé paisiblement au Centre Hospitalier Taché à l’âge de 77 ans. Il laisse dans le deuil son épouse et compagne de coeur de 54 ans Florence (née Sorin); ses enfants: Pierre (Irène Fillion), Jules (Suzanne Gratton), Louise (Léon Fillion), René, ptre, Henri (Marise LeBlanc), Michel (Gisèle Vielfaure), Aurel (Mona Parent), Bernard (Lucie Grégoire), Monique (Chuck Kroeker), Laurette (Aurèle Houle), Raymond (Nicole Desautels) et Joël (Michelle Barnabé); 42 petits-enfants et 11 arrière-petits-enfants; une soeur, Lucille Roy, ainsi que plusieurs beaux-frères, belles-soeurs, neveux et nieces. Il a été précédé par sa fillette Paulette en mars 1969. Léopold est né à Aubigny le 28 mars 1927, le dernier de seize enfants de feux Alfred Chartier et Octavie Laferrière. Il épousa Florence le 29 avril 1950 à Aubigny. En 1952, ils s’établirent sur la ferme laitière et y ont élevé leurs enfants à Sainte-Agathe. En 1994, ils prirent demeure à St-Vital. Issu d’une famille chrétienne, Léopold faisait preuve de dévotion, de sincérité et d’assiduité au travail. Son sens de responsabilité l’incita à s’impliquer dans la communauté où il mit à profit son sens aigu de la justice. “Ti-Ti” croyait qu’à toute chose, son temps. Il s’entourait des tous petits pour se nourrir de leur joie de vivre en jouant à leurs jeux tout en les taquinant avec son sens de l’humour contagieux. L’atout? Rien de mieux qu’une bonne partie de carte et les retrouvailles. Papa se souciait avant tout des besoins des siens et de sa Florence. Mari idéal, papa dévoué et pepère fier, Léopold était toujours fidèle à ce qui nous est devenu le plus cher: la famille, la foi et l’engagement envers son épouse. Adieu Ti-Ti, P’pa, pepère, cher époux. Les prières auront lieu à 19h00, le mercredi 2 février au Salon mortuaire Desjardins, 357, rue DesMeurons. La célébration des funérailles aura lieu en l’Église de Sainte-Agathe, le jeudi 3 février 2005, à 10h30 avec visionnement à 10h00. L’inhumation suivra au Cimetière paroissial de Sainte-Agathe.

Dolores Terese Blanche Williams (née Radford)
October 03, 1930 - August 30, 2004

With much sorrow, we announce the passing of our mother, and grandmother on August 30, 2004. Mom was 73.

Born to Nina and Harold Radford on October 3, 1930, in St. Boniface, Manitoba. Dolores received her education in Winnipeg in St. Joseph¹s Academy for twelve years and the University of Manitoba where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1951. Dolores worked for the Nutty Club as a student. Her career as a mustard jar filler was short-lived however when the assembly line with the jars she was supposed to fill got ahead of her and ended up all over the floor. She found greater success working at the Red Cross Blood Donor Clinic for two years after university. She married in 1953, six months after meeting her husband Irwin, through close friends. During the first date, Dad locked his keys in the car while they attended the stock car races. Mom decided then and there is guy needed taking care of and was by his side until he passed away four years ago. After 17 blissful years being married, raising three children, volunteering at Maples Community Club and Regent Park Elementary School, driving to dance lessons, hockey games and swimming lessons, mom decided it was time to do something for herself. She spent the next 13 years working as the librarian at Wayota School in Transcona where she found a warm place in the hearts of all her students and colleagues.

Dolores was predeceased by her husband Irwin, her parents Nina and Harold Radford and infant sister Connie. Left to mourn her are: children Neil (Janice) Williams of Halifax, Ian (Judy) Williams of Los Angeles, Lynne (Kent) Church of Winnipeg; sister Jocelyn (Bill) Smyth of Toronto. Dolores was especially proud of her 7 grandchildren: Katherine, Mairi and Tyson of Halifax, Leanne and Lindsay of Los Angeles and Sam and Darby of Winnipeg.

Kindness and quiet strength were the threads that wove into Dolores’s life as she cared for and worried about family, friends, her community and her work. She will be remembered for her compassion, wisdom and open ear that was ready and waiting to be there for anyone who needed to talk. Dolores was always quick to smile and chuckle at the smallest bits of new no matter how ordinary, no matter how trivial. Her love for gadgets and disdain for expiry dates will be a source of many fond chuckles in the years to come. One of mom’s favourite things besides touring the countryside with Irv in their car with or without a tent trailer attached was to have friends and family around. Whether for card games, formal Sunday dinner or a pick-up supper of Dal¹s chicken and Pizza, she made room for anyone and everyone. One of mom¹s hallmarks was making food that she would never ear like dill pickles, spaghetti sauce and Dal¹s chicken and pizza. What she loved best was talking and laughing with family and friends, crocheting, reading, playing cards and traveling by car with Irv. During her many struggles with chronic health problems, Dolores had many wonderful helping hands supporting and caring for her. The family thanks them all.

At Dolores’s request, cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held Saturday, September 4, 2004, 11:00 a.m. at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, 401 Kildare Ave West (corner of Kildare and Madeline) with interment to follow.

In lieu of flowers, friends may wish to make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Kidney Foundation or a charity of their choice.
