BOUCHARD – Sylvie

June 14, 1957 – July 27, 2011

Sylvie Bouchard beloved wife of Don Campbell passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, July 27, 2011 at the age of 54 years.

Sylvie’s great passion was the company of friends, family and her dog Jenny. She was a kind and loving person who cared most about bringing happiness into the lives of others.

Sylvie’s great gift was the extraordinary ability to make an instant and sincere connection with people and bring out the very best in them. Even during a difficult illness she was always ready with a smile or little joke to brighten the day of the people around her.

Sylvie was born and raised in Chambly, PQ and after graduating from McGill University began a career at Canadian Pacific Railway.

After moving to Calgary in 1997 Sylvie sought a new outlet for her imagination and creativity and began a new career as an artist. Without doubt the greatest benefit of deciding to pick up a paintbrush was gaining the new friends in the arts and design community who bought such joy to her life.

Sylvie will be missed beyond words by Don, her brother and most special friend Luc Bouchard, Luc’s partner Kurtis Lesick, sister Michelle Bouchard, niece Natalie Quinn, nephew Sean Quinn, mother-in-law Ruth Campbell, sister-in-law Brenda Noel, brother-in-law Jim Campbell and countless friends.

Sylvie was predeceased by mother Huguette and father Gilbert.

A Celebration of Sylvie’s life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Tuesday, August 2, 2011 at 2:30 p.m. In lieu of floral tributes the family asks that you consider donating in Sylvie’s memory to the Alberta Cancer Foundation. Expressions of sympathy and support may be forwarded to the family through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Sylvie Bouchard, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200.

Offer Condolence for the family of BOUCHARD – Sylvie

    Don,

    A life ended much too soon. Sylvie’s greatest gifts to Stella and I were her smile and her joie de vivre. From our first get-together on Nun’s Island to the garden on Patterson Hills, Sylvie most definitely lit up our lives. She will be sorely missed….. Godspeed!

    Dearest Don & Luc and family~~Our beloved Sylvie has left us though her beautiful spirit will forever remain. From her soft & knowing blue eyes, to her silk smooth skin and radiant smile, her ‘joie de vivre’ and zest for life is unsurpassed. From bean bag tosses & planting flowers, white wine on verandahs and antiquing, the creation of expressive art and the laughter ever present, this is our Sylvie, a true lady who will be sorely & deeply missed by all to whom she was dear. Her spirit will envelop us forevermore. Our lives have been irrevocabaly changed. It is an honour and a priviledge to have had her with us. She is with us now, and forever will be. With all of our love, Karen, Harley, Vie, Julia & Doug, Kimberly & Dave.

    Dear Don, Luc, Kurtis and Michelle,
    We are going to miss seeing Sylvie at the Ruberto Ostberg gallery and the Purple Door. She was a wonderful artist and her paintings were full of emotion and beauty. I loved Sylvie’s outspokenness and she used to challenge me in my approach to my own art “Karen, what are you doing?” That will echo in my memory of her for sure. And her warmth towards my children, Austin ( her boyfriend ) and Robyn (mini me). We look forward to a proper farewell at her memorial as she deserves the best we can offer her in our memory.

    Dear Don,

    My deepest sympathy. Sylvie is so young. When Marie-Andrée passed away I attended group therapy called here in Quebec, Palliavie. We suffer so many painful sentiments in time like this, that sharing with others helps. Don’t hesitate to call me if you want to talk. You will have to speak slowly because my english is rusted after 7 years in pension.
    Bon courage,
    Michel
