Beatrice H. Desveaux

Beatrice H. Desveaux

89….It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that the family announces the passing of Beatrice Desveaux, February 23, 2018 at the QEII Hospital in Halifax. She was born in Grand Etang, Inverness Co., on August 18, 1928 to the late Johnny and Laura (Cormier) Aucoin. She was married to the love of her life Patrick (Packo) Joseph Desveaux for 48 years and was predeceased by him in 1998. Beatrice was a dedicated volunteer. She could be counted on to support community activities and organizations. Her love for music and storytelling was well known throughout the community and her passion to share these loves was never more evident than through her radio program (pot pourri) on CKJM which ran for 17 years. Throughout her life, she had many different occupations but to her the most important one was taking care of her family while raising her 7 children. She also welcomed numerous foster children into the family and she never met a stranger, only made new friends. Over the years, she worked as a teachers aid with special needs children and was instrumental in the formation of the Marguerite Gallant museum at the Trois Pignons in Cheticamp, N.S. and worked there as a guide for many years. She also wrote a book about her own children’s experiences with this kind and unique woman. Mom took great pride in getting older but never growing up. Beatrice is survived by children, Jeannine, Dartmouth, Harvey (Ann), Cheticamp, Elise (Richard), Moncton, Charles (Patricia), Halifax, Colette (Patrick), Lower Sackville, Emilie (Kirk), Coldbrook and Prescille (Laurie), Cheticamp. She took pride and joy in each new addition to her family especially her grandchildren Nicholas (Niki), Jacques (Samm), Pierre, Jonathan, Michelle, Victoria, Daniel and Jeremy as well as her great-grandchildren Alex and Will. She also leaves behind her sisters, Corinne Murdy, Jeanne Deveau, Laurel LeFort, Glenna Rainville; brothers, Victor and Maurice Aucoin. She was predeceased by brother Harvey Aucoin and sister Lea Caissie. The family would like to thank the staff of 7.4 Neurology at the QEII hospital for the care, comfort and dignity shown to Mom and the family during this difficult time. Cremation has taken place. Visitation for Beatrice will take place at Cheticamp Funeral Home on Saturday, March 10, 2018, with visiting hours from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral mass will be celebrated on Monday, March 12, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. in St. Joseph Church, St. Joseph du Moine with Father Peter LeBlanc officiating with co-celebrant Fr. Jean Baptist Decoste. Burial in the parish cemetery. Family flowers only please. Memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice
