Obituary for Ghislaine Perron (Tremblay)

Ghislaine (Joyce) Perron

It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved mom, grand-maman (GMa) and great-grand-maman (GGMa), Ghislaine (Joyce) Perron (née Tremblay) on December 15, 2023.

Ghislaine leaves in sorrow her sons Michel (Colleen), Jean-Pierre (Kim), cherished grandchildren Samantha (Kevin), Alex, Jean-Luc (Ivy) Jonah and great-granddaughter Flora.

Ghislaine was born in 1937 in St. Boniface and was predeceased by her parents and her siblings, Charlotte, Yolande, Monique, Jacques, Céline and Denis. Ghislaine was a lifelong loving aunt to her many nieces and nephews.

Ghislaine was also a devoted member of her community, active with the Grey Nuns, Taché Nursing Centre and Centre Valade as the Director of Volunteer Services. Her unshakeable Catholic faith guided her throughout life and offered her much comfort and peace. Ghislaine had a deep love for classical music, ballet and symphonies. Her beautiful singing voice contributed to Les Intrépides, a renowned St. Boniface-based choir of which she was a member for several years, or simply by singing to whatever music was playing in the house.

Ghislaine loved being with her family in Winnipeg and Ottawa, spending time at the cottage, going for boat rides or playing games with the grandchildren. Her sharp wit and very well-developed sense of humour always brightened everyone’s day. Her zest for life was infectious and a model of being for all of us. She will be dearly missed.

The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to Ghislaine’s care team including Dr. Olan Nayjeyu, Dr. Jonathan Gabor and Dr. Jean Prenovault in addition to the Medigroup Health Centre pharmacy team. Finally, we also wish to acknowledge and thank her many friends at Lindenwood Estates for providing a warm and caring community.

A funeral service will be held at 11 am on Wednesday, December 20, 2023 at E.J. Coutu Funeral Home, 680 Archibald St. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Ghislaine can be made to Actionmarguerite – Compassion Fund
