November 15, 1944 – Montcerf, Quebec
April 28, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
After a long battle with cancer, Louisette passed away peacefully with her husband by her side on Monday, April 28, 2014 at the age of 69 years.
Louisette moved to Kirkland Lake, Ontario as a young child and grew up there. She moved to Calgary when she was 18 to work as a nanny for the Hoffmans. Louisette met Ralph at a Christmas party in 1963, and they were married in 1965. She worked at the Foothills Medical Centre for several years until the arrival of son Robert in 1972 and daughter Angela in 1974. Louisette relished in the role of mom, volunteering at school, Guiding, Scouting, and soccer. In 1987, she started working as a teacher’s assistant and worked in many schools until her retirement in 2007. Louisette took two wonderful trips with Ralph, one to the Panama Canal on a cruise, where she had the opportunity to touch a dolphin, and also a cross-country trip from Calgary to PEI. Louisette was a member of the Calgary Artist’s Society where she proudly sold her first two paintings, both of Peggy’s Cove. She felt like a true artist. The roles in life she truly treasured were that of a wife, mom, grandma, artist, and friend.
Besides her loving husband Ralph, Louisette is survived by her children, Robert (Angie) Bos and Angela (Erik) Langeland; and three grandchildren, Anya, Nyssa and Anders Langeland. She is also survived by her mother Georgette Poulin; sisters, Mignonne Verdon and Suzanne (Henri) Langevin; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Louisette was predeceased by her father Ubald; brother Raymond; and sister Dennise.
