BOS, Louisette Micheline Marie (nee Poulin)

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.

  1. Marlene Harris :

    To the Family of Louise Bos,
    Having often worked alongside Louisette at Highwood Elementary School over a great many years, I was so saddened to read of her passing at such a young age, and from such a long term illness, with cancer. It’s interesting to read of the ‘Angie’ and ‘Angela’ in her family, as I continue to use the lovely white ceramic soap dish she made with angels on it. I remember buying a few of these soap dishes and giving all but mine away as Christmas gifts one year. She was herself an angel for the rest of us and is now with the angels she must have been closely connected to. I’ve also seen some of her paintings and I’ve seen how she assisted so many students in various tasks, including art projects. I worked as a substitute teacher in the French immersion program even though I’m an Anglophone teaching in my second language and Louisette was so helpful numerous times in answering my questions about the French language and culture. She was such a cheerful person to be around and so conscientious with her responsibilities. Louisette was truly a gift to the rest of us. I’m sorry I couldn’t attend her service yesterday. Over the years I’ve become a Spiritualist and realize that our Spirit survives physical death. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Louisette is just as alive as she ever was and once she regains the energy her system lost while so sick, she will be in great shape. If you have any doubts, you can read some of the more recent accounts of near death experiences: “Proof of Heaven” by Dr. Eben Alexander, “Dying to be Me” by Anita Moorjani and “Heaven is for Real” by Todd Burpo (or go see the movie based on this story that is currently playing.) I’m just so sorry Louisette was so sick for so long before passing.
    With much sympathy and best wishes for all of Louisette’s Family
    Marlene Harris
