Lise Lemire McFadden
November 02, 1950 - March 17, 2005
Funeral arrangements by
Atlantic Funeral Home (Dartmouth)

Lise Lemire McFadden succumbed to cancer after a two and half year battle. She was a person with whom her husband Michael fell in love with every day and whom her three children Philippe, Stephanie and Mathieu adored. She lived life with gusto touching many people along the way. She was born in Champlain Quebec grew up in Lac aux Sables then moved out into the world. She taught elementary school on the Quebec north Shore and in Pau France on a one year exchange. After several years of teaching she sought out new challenges by obtaining her officers commission in the Canadian Armed Forces serving in Chatham NB and Shearwater NS where she met her future husband. She returned for a short while to teaching French to military personnel. Marriage in 1980 was a memorable event as the families from Ontario and Québec met for the first time in Nova Scotia and merrily worked their way through the English/French language barrier. A move to Québec coincided with another career change as she embraced motherhood as a full time occupation only to return to her first love - teaching when the children were all in school. Her experience sympathetic character and warmth made her an excellent teacher and colleague. She was a natural listener who could coax all manner of information and details from anyone she met leaving them feeling better for having talked with her. As with every other challenge in her life she faced her illness with a calm courage and a resolution to live life. Her faith and example is an inspiration to us all. In addition to her husband and children she is survived by her mother Jeanne, twin sister Lisette (Raymond Mayrand), sisters Nicole and Danielle and brother Serge (Lucie Lacerte), sisters in law Katherine (Rick Taylor), Kim (Deiter Friske), and Shannon (Brian Aikenhead), brother in law Bruce (Barbara), mother in law Catherine, godson Pierre-Luc, many aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces as well as many friends.Visitation 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm Sunday, 12 to 2 pm Monday. From Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main St Dartmouth. Funeral mass at 3:00 pm from Pope John XXIIrd Roman Catholic church. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in lieu of flowers please. Online condolences may be sent at www.atlanticfuneralhomes.com Lise Lemire McFadden a perdu la bataille contre le cancer après une lutte de deux ans et demie jeudi 17 mars 2005. Elle était la femme que son mari Michael a aimé à chaque jour et que ses enfants, Philippe, Stephanie et Mathieu adoraient. Sur sa courte route, elle a su toucher plusieurs personnes par sa détermination et sa joie de vivre. Certaines amies disaient d’elle qu’elle était leur ange sur terre. Née à Champlain Québec, elle vivait à Lac aux Sables avant de s’envoler dans le grand monde. Elle fut enseignante au Québec (Cote nord et Portneuf) puis un an en échange à Pau en France. Après quelques années, elle a changé d’orientation et est devenue officier dans les Forces armées canadiennes (Chatham NB et à Shearwater NÉ (ou elle a rencontré son mari)). Le mariage en 1980 fut tout un événement quand les deux familles (de l’Ontario et du Québec) se sont rencontrées pour la première fois en Nouvelle Écosse dans une grande fête qui a surmonté avec panache les différences de langues. Après quelques années comme enseignante de français aux militaires, elle a changé le cap en devenant à temps plein, une mère à la maison (initialement à West Chezzetcook puis à Valcartier Québec et finalement à Dartmouth NÉ). Quand les enfants furent tous à l’école, elle est retournée à son premier amour: l’enseignement auprès des jeunes. Son expérience, son caractère sympathique et sa personnalité chaleureuse étaient des dons merveilleux pour ses élèves et ses collègues. Sa capacité naturelle d’écoute pour tout le monde et toujours d’une oreille sympathique était extraordinaire. Lise a fait face au cancer comme devant tous les autres défis de sa vie; avec un courage serein et une volonté de vivre chaque minute de sa vie. Sa foi et son exemple de vie nous inspirent tous. En plus de son mari et ses enfants elle laisse dans le deuil sa mère Jeanne, sa soeur jumelle Lisette (Raymond Mayrand), ses sœurs Nicole et Danielle et son frère Serge (Lucie Lacerte), ses belles sœurs Katherine (Rick Taylor), Kim (Deiter Friske), et Shannon (Brian Aikenhead), son beau frère Bruce (Barbara), sa belle mère Catherine, son filleul Pierre-Luc, plusieurs tantes et oncles, cousines, neveux et nièces ainsi que de très nombreux amies (es). La dépouille sera exposé au salon funéraire Atlantic Funeral Home 771 rue main de 14h à 16h et de 19h à 21h dimanche et de 12h à 14h lundi. La service religieux sera à 15h à l’église Pope John XXIIIrd. Au lieu de fleurs prière d’acheminer vos dons à la société canadienne du cancer.
