Marguerite Lacombe

1933 – 2015
Marguerite Lacombe passed away peacefully on August 29th, 2015 at the Centre Hospitalier Hôtel-Dieu-de-Sorel. Marguerite was born in Kedgwick, N.-B. and was the beloved wife of the late Raymond Lacombe of Edmundston, N.-B. and the daughter of the late Edgar St-Pierre and the late Yvonne Girouard. She is survived by her daughter Michèle Lacombe from Peterborough, Ont., her son Jean-Yves Lacombe (Sylvie Mercier) from Saint-Basile-Le-Grand, Qc., her three grandchildren, Marianne, Félix and Guillaume Mercier-Lacombe, as well as two brothers, Guy St-Pierre (Magella Labrie) from Moncton and Maurice St-Pierre (Claudette Laplante) from Montréal and their children and grandchildren.
At the young age of 13, Marguerite contracted poliomyelitis and resided at the Fredericton Polio Clinic for treatment for approximately one year. A graduate of Collège Notre-Dame d’Acadie (Moncton) she met Raymond Lacombe and they were married in August of 1953. After a few years at Edmundston they moved to the Québec North Shore, at Sept-Îles and Port-Cartier. She was then employed at the Iron Ore Company of Canada as well as Our Lady’s High School and also did volunteer work (Girl Guides of Canada, etc.).
In 1970 they relocated to Vaudreuil-Dorion where she worked at Hoffmann-Laroche (phamaceutical) until she and Raymond retired. They spent several wonderful years together in the Lower St-Lawrence at Notre-Dame-du-Portage and spent their last days together at Ste-Foy and Beauport (CHSLD St-Augustin) until Raymond passed away in 2010. Since November 2014, her home was at St-Antoine-sur-Richelieu at the Accueil du Rivage where she moved to be closer to her children and grandchildren.
Marguerite was a devoted mother and admired by all who had the priviledge to know her. Her unwavering integrity and selfless concern for others were only surpassed by her intellectual wisdom and the polite respect she gave to all. Her life was cruelly overshadowed by the pain and devastation of rheumatoid arthritis and post-polio syndrome, but never once did she complain. Her courage and endurance were exemplary.
However, what she wil be especially remembered for is the beautiful romance and love story with her husband Raymond. As many used to say, they were inextricably linked. You could not find a nicer couple than these two soul mates! Rest in peace Marguerite, you are back together with your great love and we can picture two of you together with big smiles on your faces.
The family extends special thanks to the second floor staff of module 2 at the St-Augustin Elderly Care Center (CHSLD) in Beauport, and of the Elderly Care Center Accueil du Rivage in St-Antoine-sur-Richelieu, as well as the Hôtel-Dieu Hospital of Sorel for their very special caring and concern. Our grattitude also goes out to Doctors Jacques Brown and Louise Côté of Québec and Doctors Mylène Côté and Jean Desrochers of Sorel for their great empathy and availability.
A religious service will be celebrated in the presence of the ashes on Saturday, September 5th, 2015 at 2 pm at St. Patrick’s Parish Roman Catholic Church, 1145, rue de Salaberry, Québec, G1R 2V6, where the family will be present as of 1:30 pm to receive expressions of sorrow and sympathy. The mass will be followed by interment of the ashes at St-Patrick’s Cemetary (1601, chemin St-Louis), and a brief reception at McMahon Hall of St.Patrick’s Church.
Sympathy may also be expressed in the form of a commemorative donation to The Arthritis Society at
