Lucille Gaudet

(née Fortier)

Peacefully on Sunday, December 31, 2023, at the age of 78, Lucille Gaudet (née Fortier), formerly of Somerset, Manitoba, passed away at the Foyer Notre Dame with her family by her side. She will be forever remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

She leaves to cherish her memory her five children and their spouses: Glenn (Elaine), Michelle (Alain) Grenier, Kevin (Kendra), Eric (Anna), and Martin (Manon); her grandchildren: Justin (Paige), Patric (Jeannette), Eric (Allyson), Valérie (Dantin) Reimer, Christine, Jérémie (Alyssa), Kaybree, Luis, Diego, Réjean, Stéphane, and Mathieu; and great-granddaughter Danica Reimer.

She also leaves to mourn her siblings Paulette (Bernard) and Denis (Denise). Her brothers-in-law Marcien (Debra), Roland (Claire), Théodore (Susan) and Jim Remai, sisters-in-law Hélène Gaudet and Evelyn Gaudet and numerous nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Grégoire Gaudet, her parents Léo and Jeanne Fortier, her brother Alfred Fortier, her sisters Edith and Diane, her in-laws Pierre-Albert and Yvette; her brother-in-law Alain Gaudet and sister-in-law Mariette Fortier.

Lucille was born on February 4, 1945, and raised on a farm near St. Léon. After obtaining her teaching certificate, she taught at École St. Léon and Somerset Collegiate. In 1964, she married the love of her life, Grégoire Gaudet, and together they operated her family's century farm until their retirement in 2011. In her spare time, Lucille enjoyed gardening, sewing, and traveling. After raising their children, Lucille and Greg travelled extensively visiting some of the most remote areas of the world. They began by touring the seven continents, and in their later years, they spent their winter months along the coast of Costa Rica. Lucille was very active in the community, sitting on many committees including the Filles D’Isabelle and the Comité Culturel and serving as the Somerset Parish Choir Director for several years. With declining health, Lucille moved to the Foyer Notre Dame in 2019. The highlight of her time in her final home was when Greg moved to the Foyer to be with her in 2021. The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to all the healthcare professionals that provided amazing care and support to Lucille throughout the years.
