Marguerite Ramard

Marguerite Ramard

On Sunday, April 21, 2024 passed away peacefully at the Foyer Père Fiset Guest Home, Cheticamp. She was a daughter of the late Ernest and the late Hélène (Chiasson) Chiasson.

Although Marguerite was in failing health, she was so looking forward to celebrate her 98th birthday.. and she did it! On April 6th, all “dolled up” by her caregivers at the Foyer, she enjoyed her day with family and friends.

Mom was a very resilient lady. She demonstrated her strength of character when she was diagnosed with TB, and subsequently spent 18 months at the sanatorium in Point Edward, leaving behind 4 infant children.

She was a “stay at home” Mom until the age of 40, when she took employment at the Credit Union in Grand Etang, where she worked until she retired to look after her own mother.

Throughout her long life, Mom remained involved in church, and community, serving on numerous committees. However, Mom’s main concern was always the well being of her family.

Marguerite is survived by her son, Roger Ramard (Bernice); daughters, Helena MacDougall (Mike), and Bernice Campbell (Dan); brother, Marcel Chiasson (Laurette); brother in law, Joseph Henri AuCoin; sisters in law, Laurette Chiasson, and Marie Jeanne AuCoin; grandchildren, Suzanne (James), Deanne (Blake), Joel (Rachael), Sonya (Mike), Krista (Jim), Jamie (Jen) and Luke; great grandchildren, Ainslie, Jacob, Sophie, Aidan, Nathan, Josie, Kara, Jenna, Krista, Nolan, Cody, Avery, Charlie, Jonah, Sadie, Nora, and Nate.

Besides her husband, Jim Dan Ramard, Marguerite was predeceased by her sons, Ernest and Alvin; son in law, Chris Cambell; brothers, Joseph, Felix, and Daniel; and sisters, Yvonne, Lucy Jane, Therese, and Stella.

A funeral mass will be celebrated on Saturday, May 11, 2024 in St. Joseph’s Church, St. Joseph du Moine, with family accepting condolences from 10:00 am until time of funeral at 11:00 am, with Father Silvichan Dominic officiating. Burial will follow in the parish cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made to St. Joseph’s Church, St. Joseph du Moine.

    Deepest Condolences to the family. My mother “Cazilda” enjoyed her friendship and many phone calls with Marguerite over the years. They were the best of friends and they are now both at Peace together.

    A beautiful woman and my aunt.
    I remember going to their place for a meal when we were young and visiting from Toronto. I haven’t seen her in quite a few years but she will be missed. Dad will be glad to see her.
