Funeral arrangements by
Chapel Lawn Funeral Home

Tragically, on Thursday, March 18, 2004, Denis Vandal passed away. Denis was born May 26, 1955 in St. Jean Baptiste, MB. He is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Jeannette and his children Scott (Melanie) and Crystal (Sebastian). He is also survived by his cherished granddaughter Amelia. Denis was predeceased by his father Maurice; his brothers Maurice Jr. and Philippe; and nephews Perry and Kenny. He is survived by his mother Dorilda and siblings Gilles (Marge), Dolores, Paulette (Hank), Norman (Laurie), and Daniel (Brigitte) and families. He is also survived by wife Jeannette’s family, Carrie Wilson, Judy, Joan, Harry, Brent, Debra, James and Brenda; numerous nieces and nephews; and sister-in-law Marie Vandal. Denis was a father figure to nephews Jeff, Roland, Ryan and Tyler. Denis will be remembered as a hard working, generous, kind soul who always placed the needs of others ahead of his own. A devout family man, he adored spending time with his wife Jeannette, son Scott and daughter Crystal and his one-year-old granddaughter, Amelia. He was eagerly awaiting the marriage celebration of his son Scott and Melanie scheduled for the summer of 2004. For many years , Denis was a proud Ironworker by trade. He suffered a back injury in 1999 which prevented him from returning to his trade. These were difficult years for Denis. However, he approached these challenges like he approached everything else in his life – with a positive outlook, tenacious determination and an incredible work ethic. Recently, he spoke with enthusiasm and determination about his re-training in business administration at Red River Community College. Over the years, he nurtured many friendships which he cherished. Those friendships will never end. A memorial service to celebrate Denis’s life will be held on Wednesday, March 24, 2004 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Anthony’s Roman Catholic Church, 250 Burrin Avenue. He Only Takes The Best God looked around His garden, and found an empty space. He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you, and lifted you to rest, God’s garden must be beautiful He only takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew that you were in pain, He knew that you might never Get well upon this earth again. He knew the road was getting rough And the hills were too hard to climb. So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered, “Peace be thine” It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone, For part of us went with you the day God called you home. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Children’s Wish Foundation, 350 St. Mary Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3C 3J2.

Joseph Marcel LaBossiere
July 14, 1920 - July 16, 2004
Funeral arrangements by
Desjardins Funeral Chapel

Joseph Marcel LaBossière July 16, 1920 - July 14, 2004 It is with deep sadness and regret that the LaBossière family announces that despite his valiant fight to stay with us, Joe passed away on July 14th, 2004 at the St. Boniface General Hospital, two days shy of his 84th birthday. His memory will be cherished forever by his loving wife, Patricia, and his children: Paul (Sarah), Dave (Jackey), Rick (Nora), Tim (Louise) and Lorraine (Rob Morris). He will be dearly missed by his beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Keith and his family, (Tracy, Melanie and Emma), Nicole (Liam), Michelle and her family (Matias, Justin and Meghan), Sherry, Danielle, Lauren, Lisa, David, Michael, and Robbie. He also will be fondly remembered by his six step-grandchildren and three step-great grandchildren. Predeceased by his brothers Jules, Etienne (a.k.a. Bobby), and his sister Alexandrine, Joe leaves to mourn his brothers, Denis (Evelyn), Yves, and Johnny (Fern), as well as his sisters, Blande Matthews, Gisele Ramsay, Edith Foo, Marilyn Reid, and Renee McIvor, along with many nieces and nephews. Joe often spoke of his childhood, sharing with his children and grandchildren, humorous anecdotes of his life as one of twelve siblings. He never forgot how hard the depression hit his family and those he loved. He always strived to help out any family member in need. During the Second World War, Joe was a member of the RCAF and was stationed in England. He returned safely from the war and was deeply saddened when his brother Jules did not. In 1949, he married Patricia Lavallee and in 1950 they started their family. In 1954, Joe worked two jobs to provide for his growing family. One of these jobs was an office cleaning company which he ran from his home. From these humble beginnings, Joe created P.M.L. Maintenance Ltd. and Five-L Equipment Limited, where his wife and children worked with him. Joe was fiercely proud of the legacy he built for his family. He worked at Five-L until he was 73 finally retiring and leaving his businesses in the good hands of his sons. He made weekly and sometimes daily visits to check up on things or to renovate an office or two. Joe was never without a project and his project mania wasn’t fully satisfied until 1996 when along with Tim, he built a cottage in Lac du Bonnet. There he spent some of his happiest times with Pat, planning and building, planting trees, being with family, and making new friends. He always said he never felt as good as when he was at the cottage. Sports played a major part of Joe’s life. He was an avid Bombers, Jets, Goldeyes and Moose fan. In his pre-cottage years, he played golf in Winnipeg in the summer, and in Arizona or Florida in the winter. When Joe and Pat could no longer travel in winter because of his declining health, Joe found interests to satisfy his keen intellect. He studied the genealogy of the LaBossière family, talking and writing about his findings. He stayed abreast of world affairs and engaged in serious philosophical discussions with young and old alike. Joe’s family was his greatest source of satisfaction and pride. Although he enjoyed the quiet times with friends, it was at family gatherings that Joe was truly in his element. He loved laughter and sharing jokes, believing that a positive state of mind could overcome his many physical ailments and illnesses. He was an example of courage, perseverance, and strength, and will be sorely missed. We are grateful to have had Joe in our lives and we will hold him in our hearts forever. A funeral mass will be celebrated on Monday, July 19th at 10:00 a.m. at Holy Rosary Church, 510 River Ave., with Rev. Fr. Sam Argenziano officiating. Interment will follow immediately after the mass at St.Vital Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Ronald McDonald House. “Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us Footprints on the sands of time.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow The Desjardins Funeral Chapel in care of arrangements, 233-4949 or toll free 1-888-233-4949.
