Dorothy Arsenault (nee Lemaire)
February 20, 1927 ~ November 12, 2012
November 12, 2012 marked the beginning of a spiritual journey for our much loved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Dorothy Arsenault, as she left this earthly life and joined her family in heaven.
She will be fondly remembered with laughter and tears by her five special daughters and their caring husbands; Elaine and Bob Kolebaba, Diane and Charles Meadwell, Denise and Terry Jaeger, Debra and Carey Isaac, Lita and Tim Heidinger, 12 wonderful grandchildren, 14 delightful great-grandchildren, one sister and other family members.
Dorothy’s love of music will sound in our hearts as we honour and cherish the life that she lived for 85 years surrounded by the warmth of family and friends.
In keeping with Dorothy’s wishes, cremation has taken place and Mass of Christian Burial was held to celebrate Dorothy’s life November 27, 2012 at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Cathedral, The Pas, Manitoba. This Cathedral is where many of her important life events were celebrated beginning with her marriage in 1947 to Simon Arsenault, the joyous baptisms of their daughters and several grandchildren, and the wedding and funeral masses of her loved ones.
Dorothy returned home for her last celebration and was laid to rest beside her dear Simon at Lakeside Cemetery, The Pas, as we said our final farewell and blessings.
The family extends a special thank you to the staff at Concordia Hospital, Winnipeg, for their kindness, compassion and care.
If friends so desire, donations to the Manitoba Lung Association, 629 McDermot Avenue Winnipeg, Manitoba R3A 1P6
or a charity of choice in Dorothy’s memory would be kindly appreciated.
