Kathleen Fontaine
To know her was to love her…
Kathleen Maud Fontaine (nee McMillan) was born on February 12, 1923 in the Norbury district and passed away peacefully with her family by her side at the Shellbrook Hospital on September 24, 2009. Kay will be lovingly remembered by: her children: Vivian (Len) Zinovich of Big River, SK; Robert (Sandra) Fontaine of Debden, SK; Alex Fontaine of Big River, SK; Stanley (Sandra) Fontaine of Prince Albert, SK; her grandchildren: Brock Zinovich of Grande Prairie, AB; Robert (Celina) Zinovich of Big River, SK; Aimee Zinovich (Orry Knoll) of Francis, SK; Nadine (Trevor) Bouchard of Debden, SK; Nanette Fontaine (Jason Miller) of Red Deer, AB; Nash Fontaine of Moose Jaw, SK; Nathan Fontaine of Prince Albert, SK; Michael (Robin) Martel of LLoydminster, AB; Amanda Wisner of Saskatoon, SK; Renee Beaulac (Tim Gaines) of Prince Albert, SK; Adam (Raeleen) Beaulac of Prince Albert, SK; Tammy (Joe) Spurdens of Vernon, BC; and Cory (Marie-Josee) Judd of Montreal, PQ; her great grandchildren: Victoria and Jordan Bouchard; Jordan and Tristan Spurdens; Kathleen Zinovich; Halleigh and Henry Beaulac and Olivia and Maelie Judd; a brother, Neil (Simone) McMillan of Fort McMurray, AB as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends. She was predeceased by: her loving husband, Gerard Fontaine (1974); a daughter, Joan Scott (2000); a sister, Noreen McMillan (2002) and her parents, Hugh and Annie McMillan. One of Kay’s greatest accomplishments was to have a second chance to complete High School at the age of 51. She then went on to train as a clerk typist at the Prince Albert Business College. Her love of people made her seven years at White Cross Drugs pass quickly.
Church and community involvement were always very important to Kay. She belonged to the Catholic Women’s League in Spiritwood, Prince Albert and Big River. She also belonged to an inter-denominational Bible study group in Big River. Kay loved visits from her family and friends and enjoyed the little things in life – watching the birds eat from the bird feeder through her window, watching people fish off the dock, the northern lights, a beautiful sunset, a rainbow or a winter storm.If Kay were here, she would tell us to thank God for each new day, each inspiration, an unexpected gesture of kindness, the kindness to and from friends and neighbours, and to love each other always. The Prayer Service was held on Friday, September 25th, 2009 ~ 7:30 p.m. from the Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Big River, Saskatchewan, The Prayers were prepared by Robert & Sandra Fontaine & Pat Devonshire. The Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Saturday, September 26th, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. from the St. Jean Baptiste Roman Catholic Church in Debden, Saskatchewan with Rev. Fr. Bernabe Millan Sajonas as celebrant , the music was directed by Gilles Francoeur with Diane Duret as the organist. The Eulogy was read by Amiee Zinovich & Nash Fontaine, the Crossbearer was her grandson Nathan Fontaine, and the Honorary Pallbearers were members of Parkland Health District Homecare who looked after mom so well, the Pallbearers were her Grandsons; the Honor Guard was the Legion.
